3 Cardio Exercises for Beginners

3 Cardio Exercises for Beginners

You want to increase your Stamina without having to do a lot? I will show you three simple exercises that will help you do exactly that.

Inchworm

Stand with your feet hip wide and core tight.Then bend from the waist and place your hands on the ground. Walk with your hands forward, keeping your legs straight. When you arrive in a high plank, quickly walk your hands back and stand up. If you want to make this exercise harder just add a push up after the plank.

Power Skip

Again stand with your feet hip wide and core tight. Then raise your right knee as you bring up the left arm and hop off your left foot. Land on the ball of your foot, then immediately repeat the exercise with the opposite hand and leg. Focus on your height not on the speed.

Mountain Climber Twist

Start from a high plank position with core tight. Run your left knee toward your right elbow, then your right knee. Continue to alternate as quickly as possible without hiking hips.

So that are three simple exercises for cardio training.

Iron Fist

Iron Fist

Marvel’s brand new Netflix series Iron Fist just launched almost a week ago and I can say that the story is very similar to the one of arrow.

Biography

Danny Rand returns to New York City, after being presumed dead for 15 years, to reclaim his family company from Harold Meachum and his children Ward Meachum and Joy Meachum. When a threat emerges, Rand must choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.

Cast

  • Finn Jones as Iron Fist
  • Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing
  • Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple
  • Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum
  • David Wenham as Harold Meachum
  • Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum

My Opinion

Personally I enjoy the show. The beginning of it it is very similar to Arrow but after the first few episodes it really changes. Now you have to say that I never read one of the Iron Fist Comics, so I don’t know if the series follows the comics. Summarized I say that it’s a great series and you should watch it as well as the other Marvel Defenders series.

Healthy Chicken Burger

Healthy Chicken Burger

Chicken Burgers with Guacamole

You want to eat a nice juicy burger but are on a strict diet. Then this is the perfect Burger for you. It’s got everything you need in a healthy meal.

Ingredients for 4 burgers

1 pound ground chicken
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons seasoned dry breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
cooking spray
2 tomatoes
1/3 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
4 sandwich buns

Ingredients for Guacamole

2 Avocados
1/4 cup of chopped onion
garlic as much as you wish
1/3 cup of chopped tomatoes

Preparation

Firstly you will need to mix the ground chicken with the fresh cilantro, the breadcrumbs,salt and pepper. If you can’t find ground chicken in your local store, you can just buy chicken breasts and chop them up with a knife. You then form 4 patties that are slightly bigger than the buns. Chop all the tomatoes. Then mash the avocados with the onions, garlic and the tomatoes. While you grill the patties you can put the buns in another pan with some butter to make them crispy. Sprinkle the Cheddar on one side of the patty and let it melt. Now we go on to the building of the burger. Put the patty on the bottom half. Top it with guacamole and the tomatoes.
And voila there you have a delicious healthy burger.
