    Physical education
    It is known in many Commonwealth countries as physical training or PT, is an educational course related to the physique of the human body. It is taken during primary and secondary education and encourages psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health.


    As for myself, I always want to engage myself in a hard training to maintain a healthy body. A healthy mind and body is very important to me, it is like something I treasured. So, how do I keep motivated after all these years?


    Follow this simple 20-minute routine five times a week, for three weeks. It alternates high-intensity cardio-and-strength moves to maximize calorie after burn with more restful strength-only exercises that help boost your metabolism.
    Do it straight through (don't rest in between exercises). Not feeling challenged? Just add weight or increase your reps.

    For glutes, hamstrings, quads
    Step up onto a low bench or stair with right foot, then bring up left foot. Step back down, right foot first. Do 20 reps; then repeat, starting with left foot.

    Classic Push-Ups
    For triceps, shoulders, chest
    Place hands shoulder-width apart on floor, then walk feet back until body is in a straight line. Without sagging, slowly bend arms and lower chest. When elbows form right angles, push back up to starting position. Do 30 reps.

    Lunge Curls
    For glutes, hamstrings, quads, biceps
    Holding a 5- to 8-pound dumbbell in each hand, stand with feet together and arms at sides. Step forward with left foot and lower right knee toward floor (don't let left knee go beyond your ankle). At the same time, curl weights toward shoulders. Return to starting position and repeat with right foot. Do 20 reps per leg.

    Squeeze Crunches
    For hamstrings, glutes, abs
    Lie on back with hands by ears and elbows pointing out. Place a small pillow behind knees, squeeze, and bring knees in toward chest. Continue to squeeze the pillow as you raise shoulder blades off the floor, moving nose toward knees. Hold for a beat, then return to starting position. Do 30 reps.

    Squat Presses
    For glutes, hamstrings, quads, shoulders, core
    Holding 3- to 5-pound dumbbells beside shoulders, stand with feet twice shoulder-width apart. Keep back straight as you squat until thighs are almost parallel to the floor; push through heels and press weights up as you return to standing. Do 30 reps.

    For back, biceps
    Holding 5- to 8-pound dumbbells by your sides, stand with feet shoulder-width apart and back about a foot from the wall. Press butt against the wall for support, then bend at the knees and waist so torso and thighs form a right angle. Keeping head up and back straight, draw elbows straight back and up, bringing weights up to touch torso. Pause, then lower weights. Do 30 reps.

    Squat Raises
    For quads, glutes, hamstrings, shoulders
    Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, holding 3- to 5-pound dumbbells by your sides. Keeping back straight, squat until thighs are nearly parallel to the floor, then push off balls of feet to rise back to standing as you raise dumbbells out to sides until parallel with shoulders. Return to starting position. Do 30 reps.

    Squeeze Side Crunches
    For hamstrings, abs
    Lie on back with hands by ears and elbows pointing out. Place a small pillow behind knees, squeeze, and bring knees toward chest. Continue to squeeze the pillow as you move left elbow toward right knee, lifting left shoulder blade. Hold for a beat, then lower back down. Repeat on opposite side. Do 15 reps per side.

    Door Squats
    For glutes, quads
    Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, one on either side of front edge of an open door. Grasp a towel looped around both doorknobs, extend arms, and lean back. Keep back straight. Bend knees and lower butt toward floor. Pause, tighten butt muscles and rise back up. When legs straighten, thrust pelvis forward, squeezing butt muscles again. Do 30 reps.

    Bench Dips
    For triceps, shoulders, chest
    Sit on bench edge with hands on either side of butt. Slide butt off and extend legs until straight. Keeping torso upright, bend elbows as you lower butt toward floor. When upper arms are nearly parallel to floor, push back up to starting position. Do 20 reps.

    Calf Raises
    For calves
    Stand with toes on the edge of a step. Lower heels, then rise up onto toes. Squeeze calves for a second at the top of motion, then slowly return heels to starting position. Do 30 reps.

    Have you heard about superfruits? Those deemed "super" by nutrition scientists are packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and other nutrients that can help you live longer, look better, and even prevent disease.

    1. Açaí Berries  Very Happy
    Açaí actually deserves some of the hype it gets, thanks to weapons grade antioxidant levels that clobber other Superfruit rivals like blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries. However, because this tiny berry hails from Brazil, it's not easy to find fresh. "I recommend powdered açaí berry, which can be added into a smoothie," says Glassman. "Not only is this an easy way to get super fruits into your diet, but it also helps mask the tart, sometimes bitter taste."

    2. Apples  Smile
    Surprise! America's favorite fruit is a secret Superfruit, thanks in part to its red or green color. Apples are a great fiber source, but the skin contains quercetin, an antioxidant that packs antihistamine and anti-inflammatory power, and therefore may help protect you from heart disease and possibly allergic reactions. A study from St. George's Hospital Medical School in London found that people who eat five or more apples a week have better lung function than those who don't. So slip an apple into your lunch bag today.

    3. Bananas  Sad
    Ever grab a snack but then feel hungry again 20 minutes later? Next time, reach for a banana. This Superfruit is loaded with potassium, which can lower your blood pressure, and is one of the best sources of Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that fills you up and helps to boost your metabolism.

    4. Grapefruit  Surprised
    Remember The Grapefruit Diet? Grapefruit is a Superfruit, but more for your heart than your weight. A grapefruit a day—particularly the ruby variety—can help keep heart disease at bay by lowering cholesterol, according to several studies. The redder your fruit the better; they contain higher levels of antioxidants.

    5. Blueberries  Shocked
    Your go-to Superfruit for brain function and memory. Several studies link high flavonoid levels in blueberries with a better memory, and regular consumption may help keep your brain functioning well as you age, new research suggests. One study found that women with the highest intake of berries appeared to have a delay in cognitive aging by a whopping 2.5 years. Blueberries are also rich in manganese, which plays an important role in your metabolism, which can help keep you slim and energized.

    6. Cantaloupe  Cool
    Consider cantaloupe your secret weapon for smooth, younger-looking skin. It gets its Superfruit status thanks to Vitamin A and its derivatives, which boosts cell reproduction, making it a natural exfoliator, according to Glassman.

    7. Cherries  Laughing
    Cherries are one of Glassman's unsung heroes of the Superfruit world. They owe their deep red color to an antioxidant called anthocyanin, which can reduce inflammation and lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels. In a recent study, University of Michigan researchers found that giving cherries to lab rats reduced two common markers of blood vessel inflammation by up to 50%. The cherry eaters also gained less weight and experienced big drops in cholesterol.

    8. Citrus fruits  Mad  
    All citrus, from limes to tangerines, are chock-full of vitamin C, fiber, and small amounts of other nutrients and disease-fighting chemicals. It's the C that makes citrus a Superfruit, says Glassman, because this vitamin counters the effects of sun damage, regulates oils glands, and can even prevent age spots.

    9. Cranberries  cherry
    These tart little berries are Superfruits, but especially for women. They may prevent urinary-tract infections, and might help fight a far scarier disease: ovarian cancer. According to a new Rutgers University study, cranberries can boost the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs used to fight ovarian cancer (at least in laboratory culture dishes) and may slow the growth of some cancer cells. Another study found that people who drink a glass of unsweetened cranberry juice each day raise their HDL, or good cholesterol, by 10%.

    10. Dragon fruit  Embarassed  
    The name and vibrant color of this fruit's skin tell you that it's something special, even though the taste is actually quite mild. Four years ago, researchers from Malaysia's Universiti Putra analyzed the seeds and found there to be a bounty of essential fatty acids, which we need but can't be made by our body. In fact, 50% of the seeds were made up of an essential fatty acid, oleic acid, which helps lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. While this Superfruit is grown mainly in Asia, you might be able to find one at your local Chinatown or farmer's market.

    11. Grapes  Crying or Very sad
    What makes grapes a Superfruit? A powerful antioxidant called resveratrol, which promotes a healthy heart. Researchers have also found that compounds found in grape seed extract seem to help slow Alzheimer's disease (at least in mice) and can clobber head and neck cancer cells grown in the laboratory. Oh, and forget bleaching your teeth. "The malic acid in grapes naturally breaks down stains and discolorations on teeth," says Elisa Mello, DDS, assistant clinical professor at New York University. Snack on grapes that are just ripe, because the acid declines as the fruit ripens.

    12. Blackberries  Evil or Very Mad  
    These tart and tasty gems rank in the top 10 for antioxidant power, according to the USDA, and they are specifically rich in polyphenols, the same family of antioxidants found in green tea, which may help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancers, and osteoporosis. Blackberries are also number one for fiber: One cup delivers one-third of your daily target of 25 to 35 grams a day.

    13. Kiwi  Twisted Evil
    If you've got digestive gripes, then kiwi is your Superfuit. In one study, 41 people who had irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) consumed two kiwis a day for six weeks and reported a reduction of symptoms compared to those who didn't. One theory: Kiwi, especially the skin, is high in fiber and pre-biotic complex carbohydrates.

    14. Oranges  Rolling Eyes
    If you manage to eat just one medium orange, then you'll already have your reached recommended daily intake of vitamin C, which keeps your immune system humming. This familiar sweet fruit is also a great source of fiber, potassium, calcium, folate, and other B vitamins, so take one with your everywhere you go.

    15. Plums Laughing
    Plums are yum—and they may help keep anxiety at bay. Plums contain an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid, which, according to French researchers, is linked to decrease in anxiety-related behaviors in mice.

    16. Pomegranate  Exclamation  
    Pomegranates deserve their Superfruit status. The juice from this gorgeous fruit beat red wine to win first place in a list of beverages ranked by antioxidant levels in a University of California, Los Angeles study. However, if you are set on fresh pomegranate over juice, wait for winter; the fruit is at its best between September and February.

    17. Strawberries  Question
    Strawberries are bursting with vitamin C; just a cup full and you've already reached your recommended daily intake. They are also an excellent source of folic acid, which can help protect your heart. Easiest of all, they whiten your teeth naturally! Crush a strawberry to a pulp, then mix with baking soda until blended. Spread the mixture onto your teeth and leave on for 5 minutes. Reapply once a week.

    18. Avocados   Idea
    Yup, these are a Superfruit (remember, fruits have seeds, vegetables don't). Packed with monounsaturated fat and fatty acids, avocados can help lower LDL (bad cholesterol) levels while raising the amount of good cholesterol in your body. The healthy fats in avocados also promote the absorption of other carotenoids—especially beta-carotene and lycopene—which are essential for heart health.

    19. Tomatoes   Arrow  
    The tomato pretty much tops our list of Superfruits (even though some people still think it's a vegetable). Tomatoes pack a sought-after antioxidant called lycopene, which is rarely found in other Superfruits, and they're high in vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, and super-low in calories.

    20. Papayas afro
    Summer colds are the worst, so have some papaya! This tropical fruit is bursting with vitamin C – just one cup gives you more than you need each day. On top of this, papaya is also a good source of vitamins A and E, two powerful antioxidants that may help protect against heart disease and colon cancer.

    21. Raspberries   Neutral
    Fiber is not something that these berries are lacking; just half a cup would give you 4 grams. You'd also get 25% of your recommended intake for vitamin C and manganese too!

    22. Pumpkin & pumpkin seeds   Neutral
    Yes pumpkin is actually a fruit! This squash is overflowing with beta-carotene, which combined with potassium may help to prevent high blood pressure. If making homemade pumpkin pie is too much trouble, try tossing the seeds into salads, soups, etc.

    23. Watermelon  What a Face
    Watermelon is packed with lycopene; in fact just one cup of the stuff has more than twice as much compared to fresh tomato. At just 40 calories per cup, it's also a source of vitamins A and C. You needn't limit yourself to eating watermelon alone; grill and then toss with feta and fresh mint.

    24. Pineapple  Like a Star @ heaven
    Not only does pineapple add juicy sweetness to your meals but it also contains bromelain, a digestive enzyme that helps break down food to reduce bloating.

    lol! Try the "bicycle" workout. This can help you get abs fast. Lie on your back, (with your back flat on the floor), lift your legs up, and move them as if you are peddling a bicycle. Put your hands behind your head, and every time you move one of your legs toward your face, touch it with your elbow. For example, when your left leg comes toward you, touch it with your right elbow.

    lol! Do crunches. Crunches are another great way to get abs quickly and effectively, and there are tons of variations on crunches. Basic crunches require you to lie down on a matted floor, with your back flat to the ground and your knees bent at a 60 degree angle. With your hands near your temples, or crossed on your chest, lift your shoulder blades off the ground a small bit and feel the "crunch" in your abs. Exhale and go back down to the ground. Repeat.

    lol! Do the plank exercise. The plank exercise is one of the most reliable, deceptively simple ways to give great definition to your abs. All you need is a flat surface, a little bit of time, and some serious gumption as you feel the burn.

    lol! Lift your weight. Take two chairs of equal height, and rest your forearms on them, then pick your legs up off the floor in an up and down position. But be careful that you don't slip or fall.

    lol! Do leg raises. Another great ab-builder is leg raises. You'll be able to feel how effective this exercise is as soon as you get into starting position.

    lol! Do cardio as much as possible. Set aside at least one day a week to run a mile. Playing games like tag and hide and go seek outside can even burn calories. Taking your dog for a run is also a convenient way to run, and make sure you drink plenty of water!

    lol! Work out your abs for about 30 minutes, 3 days a week, at first. Work up to exercises all 5 days of the week. Eventually, when it gets easier, do ab workouts twice each day, 5 days a week.

    Hello ... cheers
    About your question?

    I ask someone about that, and you know what he said?
    People who had a hobby like that and suddenly stops will tend to gained more fats.
    When you are having work out, more calories are burning out. You were always feel hungriness.
    But when you stop exercising, there are instances that you crave more and more. In that time you have no more exercising rules that’s why you are gaining more weights.

    Our entire topic here was related to physical health.

    The other domain of learning is the physical education and physical fitness. Physical fitness is a general state of health and well-being and, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports or occupations. Physical fitness is generally achieved through correct nutrition, moderate-vigorous physical activity, exercise and rest. It is a set of attributes or characteristics seen in people and which relate to the ability to perform a given set of physical activities.
    Before the industrial revolution, fitness was the capacity to carry out the day’s activities without undue fatigue. However, with automation and changes in lifestyles physical fitness is now considered a measure of the body's ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist hypokinetic diseases, and to meet emergency situations.

    My own opinion, pwede naman po na mag balance ng kinaen para sa healthy diet po. Kung medyo may edad na po, sa pagkain nalang po siguro bumawe. Pero kung mga teenager po, sabay dapat ang exercise. At last po pala, para naman po sa hindi mapigilan ang hindi kumain ng madami, pwede naman po na kumain pero dapat alam po natin ang tamang quantity na kakainin naten..

    Wala na po ma advice eh, pero yan po kasi yung mga natandaan ko when it comes to Diet.
    Thank you po Smile))

    You were trying to maintain a good health? Why ? Do you have any problem with yourself?

    Anyway .. about your brother? This is the best thing that I can tell. I hope that it will help your dear brother.

    Combine strength days with cardio days.
    It’s a simple equation: the more muscle you can get working, the more it will challenge your heart and your cardiovascular system.
    So, dapat sanayin natin yung katawan na nawowork-out. Bata pa naman siya so .. it is better to play more, dapat naaarawan specially morning.

    Jumping jacks.
    Effected Areas: legs and arms.

    Slalom Jump.
    Effected Areas: leg muscles. While standing straight up with your feet together, squat down about half way, leaning slightly forward. Put your left arm in front of you and your right arm in back (running position). Lean and jump to the right while swinging your arms in the opposite position and keeping your feet together.

    Ski Jump
    From a standing position with your left leg and left arm in front of you and your right leg and right arm in the back, slightly bend your knees (running position). Jump up while swinging your arms and legs in the opposite direction before you land on the floor.

    Effected Areas: leg and arm muscles, chest and back.

    Alternate toe touch
    Effected Areas: legs, arms, back and shoulders.

    Shuttle runs with ball. So, total body na 'to.

    Try niya na rin magZumba AAHAHAH .. hindi lang nman pangthunders yun. afro

    I want to strengthen my lower back, what kind of exercise should I do? Question  Embarassed

    Hi Ciata, very good ka kagabi sa rehearsal natin.

    To strengthen your lower back, here's a tip for you:

    Move 1: Lunge, Lift, and Turn
    Start with feet in a staggered position with the right foot forward and place a dumbbell on the ground to the left of the right foot. With your abs contracted, bend both knees into a lunge and, keeping your back flat, pick up the dumbbell with your left hand (top).

    Return to a standing position (center). Switch the dumbbell to your right hand as you turn on your toes to face the opposite direction.

    With a flat back, lunge with the left leg forward and bend down to place the dumbbell on the right side of the left foot (bottom). Stand up and repeat the action in the other direction for one rep.

    Targets: Deep-back muscles and obliques, plus hip and leg muscles.

    Move 2: Twist, Squat, and Lift
    Stand with feet about hip distance apart and place a wastebasket, with a five-pound dumbbell inside it, behind the right foot (top). Twist to the right as you squat down and pick up the wastebasket.

    Pushing through your heels, stand up straight and bring the basket to waist level (center).

    Twist and squat to place the basket behind the left foot (bottom). Stand back up for one rep.

    Targets: Deep-back muscles and obliques, plus quadriceps and glutes.

    Move 3: Tiger Push-up
    Start with hands and knees on the ground. Sit back on your heels and extend your arms forward into child’s pose (top).

    Raise your head and slide your torso forward along the ground, arching your spine and straightening your arms so that they are supporting your weight (bottom). Hold for one to four seconds. Reverse the motion by lowering your chest to the ground, bending your knees and raising your hips, and sliding back into child’s pose.

    Targets: Lower-back muscles, plus shoulders and chest.

    Move 4: Crunch, Reach, and Roll
    Lie on your back with legs in the air and knees bent. Lift your head and shoulders into a crunch position, and raise and extend your arms forward (top).

    Move your arms straight back, so they are next to your ears, and extend your legs (center).

    Roll to the right onto your stomach so you end up in a Superman pose, with shoulders off the floor and legs extended and raised slightly (bottom). Squeeze your shoulder blades together and contract your abs and glutes as you hold for one to four seconds. In a controlled motion, roll back to the starting position, trying not to touch the floor with your hands or feet. Repeat on the left for one rep.

    Targets: All major core muscles and glutes.

    Move 5: Scorpion Stretch
    Lie flat on your stomach with feet together, arms extended outward to form a T, palms facing down, and forehead on the ground (top).

    Squeeze your right glute, bend your right knee, and lift your right leg as high as you can (center).

    Twist your hips and reach your right foot over to touch the ground on the outside of your left leg (bottom). Try to keep your arms and chest on the floor. Reverse the movement to come to the starting position, then repeat with the left leg for one rep.

    Targets: Lower-back muscles, plue abdominals, hamstrings, and glutes.

    Move 5: Rotating Plough
    Beginning on your back, pull your legs, with knees slightly bent, into your chest. For support, place your hands low on your back near your hips (top).

    Gently rock your legs from side to side (bottom). Return to the starting position for one rep.

    Targets: Deep-back muscles, plus hamstrings and abs.
