Bodybuilding and Fitness for longevity and good health


Dear friends, I am writing this under above heading, Please feel free to share your opinion regarding my article.
Recently a few days back a classic bodybuilder Baitollah Abbaspour passes away, a few months ago Nasser Sonbatty, Greg Kovacs, Mike Matarazzo and few more died prematurely.
Naturally, a question raises WHY?
Modern Bodybuilders are dying prematurely while they are most scientifically advance and always surrounded by technically perfect trainers, nutritionist, physicians and pharmacists on the other hand before 90's bodybuilders all things they did by the faith of trainers and by trial and errors method.
Old bodybuilders look very smart, elegant, smooth nearly absence of excessive vascularity, hard & tough, powerful and massive, like Reg Park, Bill Pearl, Gunnar Rosbo, Larry Scott, Arnold, Lou, Serge Nubret, Franco, Samir Bannout and much more, some of them lived a full life.
Modern bodybuilders look like Gorilla with ugly dimensions and symmetry, excessive vascularity, monster massiveness beyond human limit.
We all know this is all due to excessive use of " ANABOLIC ANDROGENIC STEROIDS "
Another question comes in my mind that " How they clear Dope Test "
Where Anti-Doping Agencies gone.
This should be burning issue in the fitness industry.
Please share your comment.

CARDIO RESPIRATORY ENDURANCE Cardiovascular or cardio respiratory….confusion OK, I clear your doubt, Cardiovascular refers to the heart, blood and blood vessels and Cardio respiratory includes heart, lungs, blood and blood vessels. In simple words, Cardio means related to the heart, those activities which can’t complete without hearts contribution. The function of the heart is to supply blood to the working muscles (voluntary & involuntary) and vital organs of the body even at the time of rest-----Circulatory system of the body.

Respiratory means related to the lungs, those activities which can’t complete without lungs contribution. The function of the lungs is to mix oxygen into the deoxygenated blood and make it oxygenated blood-----Respiratory system of the body.

Endurance means the ability of the heart, lungs and blood vessels to deliver the adequate amount of oxygen and nutrients to the cell and working muscles during prolonged physical activity without fatigue.

Reason behind tir…



Generally, the most overlooked factor in physical fitness is Flexibility. Flexibility is not only for muscles belly (thicker middle region of muscle between origin and insertion), and their fascia while this is the cumulative contribution of tendons (attaches muscle to bone), ligaments (attaches bone to bone), joints and skin. Before understanding the subject topic we will have to take a short glimpse of the musculoskeletal system along with muscle physiology. The skeletal system provides structural support and posture to the body and muscular system provides the ability to move. I have already discussed in detail in my previous blog under “Musculoskeletal Strength” here we need to understand the physiology of muscle ( the science of stretching).

Flexibility is the ability to move muscles and joints through a maximum range of motion to use the joint to its fullest. Joint range are divided into – (1)AROM (Active range of motion) (2)PROM(Passive …


There are two types of endurance training. (1)Aerobic Endurance.                       (2)Muscular Endurance.
Aerobic endurance, I have explained in the first component of physical fitness-CARDIO RESPIRATORY ENDURANCE, where we have understood clearly the importance of coordination between the circulatory system and respiratory system. To improve this segment (cardiorespiratory endurance), cross training pattern of exercise is much better than normal routine aerobic exercise on trade mill, upright bike, and recumbent bike etc..

Why dancing aerobics, Zumba dance, power yoga, triathlon, rock climbing and swimming has gained enormous popularity in few years because of the monotonous style of aerobic exercises on trade mill, rowing, cycling (up-right bike and recumbent bike). In modern fashion of doing aerobic exercises, we use our whole body in action or movement like flexion, extension, circumduction, abduction, and adduction, not only that body mo…
