Men's Health

The essential components of a healthy eating plan for males are inherently the same as females. However, most men consume inadequate dietary fibre. Dietary fibre prevents constipation and reduces the risk of diverticulitis, haemorrhoids and bowel cancer. You can get this from eating:

  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • whole grains
  • legumes
  • pulses
  • pecans and other nuts

 

 An antioxidant (lycopene) found in tomatoes and tomato products may lower the risk of prostate cancer.    

 

Fitness tips for men:

Men should combine heavy lifts with strong conditioning.  We all know the benefits of cardiovascular exercise but more often that not men need to do more dynamic lifting and power development exercises. 

With 70% + of the population complaining of back pain at some point in their lives, combining strengthening exercise such as dead lifts and multi plane stability holds, which include the paloff press, will help strengthen your back.

Power development is a great way to shred fat and increasing metabolic threshold.  Doing exercises such as tyre flips, sled sprints and power cleans help melt away the fat and build muscle.  Just make sure to learn correct technique before jumping into it. It is recommending to seek the assistance from a professional coach who can assess mobility, optimise results and decrease the risk of injury.
