According to many fitness experts, swimming can be an effective and rigorous fitness workout for people of all age, and everyone should try to hit the pool every day. While this is a regular regime for some, many are into a misconception that swimming is like child’s play. There are also those who think that swimming is not an effective form of weight loss. But the reality is that swimming is one of the best cardio exercises, and you must include it in your regular fitness regime.
And, in case you are running out of reasons to indulge in swimming, here are a few important points to convince you.
- Swimming is good for heart health: Swimming is known to provide an unparalleled conditioning of cardiovascular health if you can practice it with an untainted consistency. Even though other kinds of exercise such as running or cycling can be more effective to boost the levels of metabolism, you should include swimming in cross-training routine. Pushing yourself to swim regularly will improve the overall fitness.
- Helps in balancing the structure of muscles: Swimming aids in building longer and leaner muscles which complement the denser muscles produced from weight training. These newly formed muscles also aid in speeding up the metabolism process for keeping the calorie for burning longer.
- Swimming is an excellent form of cross-training: Swimming helps in improving the cardiovascular capacity and increase muscle strength. But the reason why swimming is famous among fitness enthusiasts is that swimming offers the much-needed break from the high impact workouts such as weight-lifting, running and basketball. It allows athletes a respite from the regular intensive routine and helps the body to heal properly without compromising the daily fitness sessions.
- Swimming helps in improving the overall flexibility of the muscles: Hitting the pool gradually relaxes the major muscle groups in the body and increase flexibility along with stretching it. If you indulge in lactic acid building workouts such as weight-lifting, cycling and running, swimming for half an hour assists in flushing out the toxins and spare the muscles from becoming tight and sore the following day.
- Assists in strengthening the core: One of the most prominent reasons why you should hit the pool regularly is that it helps in improving the core body strength. This is due to utilisation of the major muscle groups at the same time. Even though about 70 percent of the body’s effort rises from the upper portion, moves such as fin and kickboard can offer an excellent lower body workout.
To sum up, these benefits are definite to compel anyone to consider swimming on a regular basis and improve the quality of life without hurting the muscles. And in no time, you would start enjoying it too!" If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

Avoid a Sore Penis When Going for the Gold - Safety Precautions During the Sex Olympics
The Winter Olympics are going on for a limited time in Sochi, Russia, but the Sex Olympics can go on forever (or until a sore penis says "enough!") Best of all, absolutely anyone can participate in the Sex Olympics: there are no qualifying rounds and no entry requirements. All that is needed is a desire to go for a personal gold. A partner is required for some activities, but guys who are not part of a team can find plenty of solo pleasure, as well. One word of caution: as in all sports, taking proper care is necessary, so participants should ensure that their penis health does not become compromised amid all the fun.
Solo sexual activity has a long and varied history as a prominent part of the Sexual Olympics. Indeed, for many teen participants, the solo categories are their only chance to shine - and shine they do (but don't count out the older participants; after all, experience does count for something!). Some of the more popular solo Olympic events include:
Handball. Points are given for style and technique as contestants massage their testicles in the most imaginative and exciting manner possible. Extra points are given to men who manage to achieve an orgasm solely through stroking of the testicles and without concentrating on the penis- a sure way to get the gold.
Shooting. An age-old favorite of all men, the shooting competition encourages participates to create the most forceful ejaculations possible. Bronze medals are given to those whose ejaculate reaches the chest; silver to those whose ejaculate strikes the chin; and gold to those who reach the forehead or above.
Team events are popular favorites the world over. Some of the most beloved include:
Pole vault. For this event, a man lies on his back and places his erection at a 90-degree angle to his prone body. The partner takes a running jump, grabs the erect pole and leaps; unlike in regular Olympics event, however, the goal is not for the partner to let go of the pole and fly overhead but to lower oneself onto the pole - and to keep raising and lowering oneself.
Ski jump. A woman lies prone on a bed or another flat, comfortable surface with her legs sufficiently spread. A man stands at the edge of the bed. At the appropriate signal, he slides on his stomach across the bed; rather than seeking to jump and clear the feminine obstacle in his path, however, he attempts to slide gently in.
Trampoline. A male lies on his back on a bouncy surface, such as a springy bed; an erection is required. His partner lowers her- or himself on the erection and bounces vigorously up and down. Can also be accomplished with a female on the bottom and the male inserting the penis before begin his bouncing.
Triathlon. Any of the above-reference activities, but utilizing three teammates rather than two. (Care must be taken to ensure that no one team member, or the member of any one team member, is given short shrift - no matter how short it may in fact be.)
Pentathlon. A triathlon with five people. Requires significant stamina, so not recommended for the timid.
Freestyle wrestling. In ordinary wrestling, the goal is to avoid being pinned. When entering sex-based Olympics, one strives to get pinned as quickly as possible. Also as often.
Amping up performance with extra penis care
Sex Olympics are a great way to spice up one's sex life, but improper play can definitely lead to a very sore penis. Sexual athletes who are "in the know" make it a point to regularly use a gold medal-quality penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil). An Olympics-worthy cream will include vitamin A, as that vitamin's anti-bacterial qualities help to fight the penis odor that accompanies strenuous activity. In addition, a cream with acetyl L carnitine will move a guy further into the winner's circle by maintaining optimum penis sensation.

Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues?
My age is 21, I am having very irregular periods, sometimes once in 2 months. My height is 5 feet 5 inches and my weight is 50 kg. I do physical exercises regularly and do not have any serious health issues. I can't understand the reason for my irregular menstrual cycle.
Rekha is 32 years old, she has a succesful career, a lovable husband and two wonderful kids. She has a few helpful friends and a supportive family. She also got promoted at work 6 months ago. Yet for the past few months she has been finding it a little difficult to fall asleep at night, she dreads daybreak and wished she could sleep for a bit more time. She fights through the tiredness as everything she once enjoyed seems grey and non rewarding. She stopped following her favorite tv show and hasn’t been talking to her friends as much. She has been unable to focus on work and it takes her longer than usual to complete her tasks. The food she once loved seems drab and unappealing. There is no more color to festivals and functions, and smiling becomes an effort. She worried about the future and feels helpless as her life spirals down a eternal dark staircase.
Rekhas husband has noticed this and is supportive as he can be, telling her that she needs to snap out of whatever that she is going through. Not that she wouldnt want to snap out of it. People around her have been trying to cheer her up, suggesting everything that they feel would make her feel better! But no, the shadow of depression follows her around and makes her feel that her life is not worth living anymore.
What are the numbers ?
Depression is difficult, depression is dark and depression is dangerous. Studies have reported numbers ranging from 1 in 10 to 1 in 30. An article in the Indian express on feb 15,2016 was titled “with 36% of India depressed, we must end the taboo around mental health”
Depression was reported to be higher in females, in the age-group of 40-49 years and among those residing in urban metros. Equally high rates were reported among the elderly.Depression and suicides are closely linked, with upto 15% of depressed individuals attempting suicide. With around a lakh and 30000 people ending their lives by suicide every year, and atleast 10 times as much attempting suicide, this 15 percent starts looking like a very large number.
What causes depression
Contrary to popular belief, depression does not necessarily stem from a weakness in one's "mind" or from ones poor ability to cope with the stressors of life. This Depression like every other illness stems from complex interactions between biological, psychological and social factors. Like one cannot "think away" a fever, it is impossible to "think away" depression.
Genetic studies have demonstrated a concordance rate for mood disorders in identical twins of 70 to 90 percent. Implying a strong role of inherited factors in depressive illness. Alterations in hormonal regulation and sleep architecture can also lead to depression.
At the base of the illness there are abnormalities at the synaptic level in the neuronal networks in the pre-frontal cortex (a region in the brain). The pre-frontal cortex holds and processes information in regard to ones personality, memory, decision making, motivation and complex cognitive tasks. These processes are encoded in the form of synapses or interneuronal connections. The neurons communicate via electrochemical processes called neurotransmission. Current knowledge implicates a imbalance in serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline (neurotransmitters) and or an abnormal number of their receptors in the synapses in causing depression. Most anti depressants increase serotonin concentrations at the synaptic level so as to improve mood and cognition.
Low levels of serotonin have also been observed in those who attempt suicide.
What are the symptoms of depression? How is it diagnosed ?
Symptoms of depression include persistent low mood, easy fatiguability and a lack of interest in things that were previously pleasurable. Physical symptoms such as changes in sleep patterns, changes in appetite and weight and decreased interest in sex may also occur. Further a loss of self confidence, undue feelings of guilt, emotional lability and thoughts about self harm are also common.
The safest thing to do, if one is experiencing such symtoms is to seek professional help.
The Psychiatrist or Psychologist will be able to make a diagnosis based of Criteria set forth by the world health organization. They may suggest laboratory investigations to rule out physical illnesses such as anemia and thyroid dysfunction that mimic depression and will offer appropriate treatment measures.
Depression tends to occur in episodes with each episode lasting from 6 months to two years with an average of 8 months. Untreated depression tends to leave behind residual symptoms that include fatigue, anhedonia, long lasting sleep disturbances, poor productivity and a propensity to recur. 60% of those who develop a depressive episode, develop another Thus earlier and effective treatment will improve prognosis and will decrease the long term morbidity.
Effective treatment strategies are available for the management of depression. Based on the severity of illness and the nature of symptoms, you health care provider may prescribe either behavioral changes, psychotherapy or biological therapy. You do not have to go at it alone. Help is available for all those who seek it !
Depression is nothing to be afraid of, and certainly nothing to be guilty or ashamed of. With the right intervention from qualified experts, depression can be managed effectively.
