Summer is coming, and with it a renewed need for body care!!! It's time to take charge of your diet and physical activity to achieve a nice body shape. Below are the four rules of thumb to keep fit during summer.

A warming gel meets all the muscle warm-up needs before exercising and should be used in addition to standard warm-up methods such as stretching and cardiorespiratory conditioning.

Athlete's feet are the most sensitive body part since most efforts are provided by the feet/shoes interface.
When walking, running or jumping, propulsion is provided by the foot and ankle, resulting in stresses that may impact the whole body dut to the vibration shock wave.
Long-term running causes changes in certain foot variables, such as a flattening of the foot arch. Such changes are probably due to fatigued foot stabiliser muscles, hence the idea to use corrective and cushioning insoles during sports, even for feet considered as normal in static or rest conditions

Holidays are over!Summer is often the perfect time to go about your daily routine at a different pace, to be worry-free and leave stress behind to enjoy every moment.

Winter is a season that can strain our bodies. The energy needs are usually increased. Making physical exertion in low outdoor temperatures increases the amount of energy used by the body.
The body can get used to the cold as you train, but remember that good physical shape also requires a proper diet.

Hydration is critical when doing sports indoors. Exercise increases the water losses due to body heated when in movement. Staying properly hydrated during your workouts is essential to reduce athletes' worst enemy, dehydration.

Cycling creates muscular strains related to the intensity and duration of practice. Since it is an outdoor sport, the exercise tolerance and energy expenditures will depend on the weather conditions, and the strength and direction of the wind.
A good, well-fitted bike may, of course, reduce certain strains, but as you pile on kilometres, they will certainly come back at some point!
Muscular stiffness is common and massages are a wonderful non-medical response to muscle pains.
