Regular stretching before exercise

Stretching does many things for the body. It increases the elasticity of soft tissue and decreases your chance for injury by making your body more flexible. It is best to do a proper warm-up before stretching. You can jog for 5-10 minutes to warm up your muscles. New research has shown that a dynamic stretching protocol prior to exercise is best. Dynamic protocols are a way to move in a functional way. For this type of warm-up you need progressive, continuous movements such as high knees, butt kicks, lunges, forward and lateral movements, skips, and any change of direction exercises.
 
  Cross training is a great way to loose weight. Your body gets used to doing the same thing everyday. It needs a change. If you do the same workouts your body will adapt and no longer be affected by what you are doing. Change is essential to overall fitness and health. When you are doing something you enjoy, and something different it is easier to keep up a routine because boredom is not as much of a problem. Overall, cross training helps to prevent injuries, burnout, and exhaustion, while at the same time improving strength, fitness, mental and physical health, and happiness.

How to recognize and treat skin wounds abrasions

An abrasion is the scraping of your skin which results in the outermost layers of your skin being removed.  This can happen by sliding on something hard, ie, falling off your bike, sliding across turf or the carpet.  These are also known as scrapes.  Immediate care for an abrasion is to flush and wound with hydrogen peroxide.  Be sure to gently remove debris if any is present.  Make sure to use an antibiotic to keep the wound moist.  Cover the wound with non-stick gauze and tape or a band-aid.  Lacerations are the tearing of the skin which results in an open wound with jagged edge.  This type of cut there will be more blood than with an abrasion.  When you can soak the wound in hydrogen peroxide to loosen any foreign material.  Remove the material and apply antibiotic and cover with a sterile dressing.  Usually you need to go to the doctor after a laceration because stitches may be needed and chance of infection is high.
 An incision is the cutting of the skin which results in a clean cut.  Most of the time it will bleed.  Clean the wound with soap and water and or hydrogen peroxide.  Minor incisions can be closed with a butterfly bandage or stei-strips.  You should apply a non-stick sterile dressing to the wound.  If the incision is large or on the face be sure to see a doctor for a determination if stitches are needed. A puncture wound is the direct penetration of tissues by a pointed object  such as a nail, pencil, knife or other sharp object .  If the object is deep in the skin protect the body part and call 911 or go to the doctor or hospital.  You should also be aware that shock could occur, so be prepared.  If you can remove the item clean around the wound and allow the blood to flow freely some to minimize the risk of infection.  After cleaning the wound, apply a sterile dressing.  Be sure to check with a doctor, because most puncture wounds can become infection.

Stomach area lose weight

The biggest thing is to try not to set yourself on losing pounds. Muscle weighs more than fat, so even though doing certain things will help you gain muscle; your weight may not fluctuate that much because muscle weighs more. Weight is a number that is focused on too much by many. I think staying away from the scale is a better idea. Base your results more off of how you feel and look rather than how much you weight.
To become healthier, you should eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and drink plenty of water. Make sure you stay hydrated this is important to flush out your system. I think though by doing some slight exercise each day, and eating properly, staying away from the pop, candy, and other sweets, you can lose some weight. It is not impossible to get rid of extra tummy flub with proper cardio and resistance training, but it is a challenge. Eating a proper amount of fruits and vegetables will keep your body from retaining water, which is part of the weight.
Exercise and resistance training is huge! There all kinds of good exercises for the tummy: crunches, with your knees bent and in the butterfly position to name a few. The butterfly crunches are good to hit the lower abs. Really you need to do more than just stomach exercises. General exercise and lifting all upper and lower body exercises and cardio will help you become healthier and lose weight. It is easy to get discouraged so just stay with it. Write down your goals and make a couple copies, this will help it seem more real and help motivate you more since you can see it rather just have it in your head.
