These 10 Fitness Gadgets Will Take Your Workouts To The Next Level

Khloe Kardashian has been hitting the gym hard and has not been letting herself slack, no matter what is going on in her life, as well as making sure that she sticks to a very strict diet. Khloe has since gone on to lose around 35lbs.

“Khloe gives as much to the gym as the gym gives to her”

Gunnar Peterson has praised Kardashian for her dedication. Her Beverly Hills-based trainer explains why Khloe’s physical transformation has been so major: “We keep her mind challenged and her body guessing, and the focus is on building strength. She never cancels! Some days it’s more heart-rate intensive, some days it’s more lower-extremities intensive, some days the upper extremities get a little extra love.”

He added: “As the changes have come, the diet has tightened up … She’s made better choices when she eats. She’s been more conscious about working on sleep habits. She hydrates better. She keeps getting after it and she keeps getting better. We’re always playing with our workouts. We’re always making it that much more challenging.” And that hard work and intense focus has helped our September cover star score what some might call a post-breakup revenge body.

“Yeah, it’s a revenge body”

Khloe says. But it’s just as much for all my critics who called me ‘the fat one’ for my entire existance.” Her workout consists of a complete routine, two or three times a week, on nonconsecutive days. You can try it yourself! Starting with the first exercise, do the prescribed number of reps, then rest 10 to 30 seconds. Do two to five sets of each move, then continue to the next move and repeat until you’ve done the entire routine.

The biggest obstacle most people face when trying to add exercise into their day is time. Many also (mistakenly) think that the only way to stay fit is to hit the gym or spend at least an hour doing aerobic exercise. While it’s true that you increase your fitness level when you increase the intensity, frequency and duration of your program, it’s possible to gain moderate fitness benefits from making small, consistent changes to your daily life.

The latest and probably one of the most common sense ways to get fit and lose excess body fat is by making painless additions of exercise to your day, combined with small diet modifications. For example, current research has shown that by consuming just 100 fewer calories per day, a woman can avoid the 1-2 pound gain most of us take on each year.

If you want to lose weight, you need to increase your daily caloric deduction by 500 calories, but you can do this by cutting 200 calories out of your daily diet and burning 300 calories more through exercise.

Add that up over a week and you’ll have nearly a pound of fat loss with very little pain or diet deprivation.

It’s the little things you do everyday that can make the difference between keeping fit or packing on additional pounds every year. Don’t underestimate the power of tiny changes: consistent, lifestyle changes are always more successful for losing and maintaining weight loss.

Here are a few tips to help you find painless ways to stay fit:

All rise! The average person burns 100 calories per hour while sitting and 140 per hour while standing. Get on your feet two hours a day while you work and you could drop 6 pounds over the course of a year. Stand while you talk on the phone and set up an area where you can work in a standing position (great for people with back pain!).

Take the stairs, not the elevator A 130-pound woman will burn nearly 20 calories each time she goes up and down the stairs. Do it all day watch how quickly those add up!

Dust while you talk on the phone.

Lose the remote. Get up to change the channel! And while you’re up grab some weights for a set of bicep curls or shoulder presses. You can work through a full strength training routine in an hour if you do a set during each commercial.

Park so you have to walk.

Walk and talk! Catch up on phone calls while your take a walk.

Be creative! Instead of thinking of all the ways you don’t have time to exercise, make it a game to see how many ways you can carve out time for little bouts of exercise. Lose your all or nothing mindset and look at exercise as a daily accumulation of activity.

Remember, to lose weight you still need to take a look at your diet and try to eliminate excess calories, especially those that come from junk. Your goal isn’t difficult cutting 200-300 calories from your daily diet can be easy if you choose foods that you won’t miss too much. Think about switching from a can a soda every afternoon to unsweetened iced tea or a flavored sparkling water. But remember, don’t cut something that you look forward to everyday (for me cutting cream in my coffee would be a deal breaker), instead look for little changes you can make that won’t make a big difference in the foods your enjoy.

“We’re always playing with our workouts”

South Asian Men, Chill Out. 

We’ve all got that one angry uncle in our lives, or a dad, or a friend… You know the one. The dude who you grew up watching from a safe distance (hopefully) as he yelled and slammed around and generally acted like a colossal jerk, every time someone or something didn’t go his way. And you thought to yourself, Wow. I will NEVER be that guy.

Fast forward ten years, and you start to understand where that rage comes from. You’ve got a backlog of student loan payments, sudden car repair bills, a job that doesn’t quite fit your plans for your life, and more importantly, people who just won’t line up the way you want them to. All of this builds and trips and tweaks you out of shape, way more often than you’d like to admit. And yeah, sometimes you boil over. We get that.

But guys, there’s this thing about anger that nobody talks about: It kills you. Not right away, but it builds up in your arteries and your nervous system, and slowly festers into things like atherosclerosis and mood disorders and other, equally unpleasant things.

It’s not the anger. It’s how you deal with it, or don’t.

Doctors agree that anger isn’t a villain, all by itself. Everyone experiences anger. It has its place in the range of human emotion, and can even do you good, in small doses. What causes your blood pressure to spike and your arteries to harden is when that anger controls you. It pumps you full of cortisol and adrenaline, and wreaks havoc on your body.

Cortisol and adrenaline are the chemicals that make you want to yell and brawl and throw things. The more you allow them to have their way, the stronger they grow. It feels good, in the moment, to let them rush through you unhindered. But the more you give in to them, the harder it is to slow yourself down the next time you get angry. And the more you allow them to tamper with your brain and your cardiovascular system, the faster you get sick.

Conversely, holding all of that bad juju inside can also kill you. Doctors say it takes a steady hand to find that middle ground, where you can express your anger in a healthy way, without raging, and without holding it in.

Find a better outlet.

So how do you redirect those rampaging chemicals into something healthy, instead of something toxic?

1. Talk to yourself. Anger management therapists teach this first, before any other technique. That’s because what you say to yourself is often what sets you on a rage spiral in the first place:

  • ‘Should’ thoughts: “She should have told me she was going to be late.”
  • Extreme thoughts: “He always does this! He’s such an idiot.”
  • Jumping to conclusions: “I knew they would do this. They’re trying to ruin everything.”

When you hear yourself starting to think in anger mode, stop and force yourself to turn it around. Replace your angry self talk with moderation. Aim for generosity and sympathy, instead.

  • “She probably has a good reason for being late. I’ve been late before, too.”
  • “It’s not going to matter a year from now, anyway.”
  • “This can be fixed. It will just take a little more work.”

Positive self talk is a skill that can be learned, but it takes practice. You won’t always get it right, and that’s okay. It’s worth picking yourself up and trying again, because this can actually contribute to your happiness, and the happiness of the people who share space with you.

2. Talk to others. Sometimes you can’t pin down your angry thoughts by yourself. In fact, you might be so used to hearing them that they sound normal. In this case, a therapist, or even a patient friend, can become a perfect sounding board. Let a few loved ones know that you’re working on your anger, and practice speaking honestly to them about the things that tick you off. You might find that the simple act of sharing what’s bugging you can cool you off almost instantly.

3. Move your body. It’s important to get that cortisol under control, quickly and often, before it wrecks your system. Fortunately, you can train your body to let go of stress and anger at will. Some of the best options:

  • Yoga: Yoga teaches you to focus, breathe, and relax. It’s the ultimate chill pill, and it is unbelievably good for pretty much anything that ails you, including chronic rage. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re late.
  • Martial arts: Like yoga, most martial arts are big on mind/body control. They teach you to get a grip on yourself in every possible way, especially when you’re feeling threatened and angry.
  • Running: Ever heard of a runner’s high? That’s a real thing. Running gives you an endorphin high like very few other sports can offer. No matter how angry, sad, stressed, or annoyed you feel, you can usually work it out simply by running long enough and hard enough.

Start now.

The longer you live under the oppression of anger and rage, the earlier you will develop high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, and a host of other health troubles. You also risk alienating the people you care about, and generally making everyone’s lives more miserable than they need to be. Remember that angry uncle? So don’t be that way. You’ve got options, and a full life ahead of you.
