TheDoctorsTV and Oz: Fitness and Sports Performance Made Simple

The docs on TheDoctorsTV were doing everything imaginable to perk their pecs, tighten their tummies, and bolster their butts. They even had some wild and funny exercises for the muscles that shape the butt that made me laugh out loud. So it seems that even doctors among the rest of the population are willing to do virtually anything to enhance their physical fitness and their Body Image.

Dr. Oz has even resorted to dancing and chair hanging to shape his body while showing the audience how to buff up their various body parts. It’s a kick for me to watch these TV shows demonstrate the moves and methods that those in Sports and an active healthy Lifestyle have known for many, many years. Maybe it took naming obesity as a disease before physicians took the ‘fatness factor’ seriously.

Many people take the extreme road to Fitness too far! Perspiration from working out hard and heavy, rapid heart beats from cardiac stress, and sore muscles and stiffness from exhausting jazz routines or hot yoga. It’s a little crazy and obsessive…

There are some simple ideas that will allow the average individual to become fit and healthy, shape their bodies, and gain the sleek look that is indicative of strength and true fitness.

Next, stretch regularly. Learn what the range of motion is for your arms, your legs, and perform your basic stretches daily. Always warm up your body before you engage in any exercise.
