Keeping fit is not a destination but a way of life, your body will reward you.

As the saying goes, eating well is to live well. However I also believe that by eating well you have to keep yourself not just healthy but fit. Many of us like to eat but they are not health conscious and eventually most of them became obese or lost their health. I will not give myself excuses such as too busy, lazy or not motivated. Keeping in good shape is being responsible to yourself. Although I grew with a deeper understanding on food, I did not forget having good discipline and determination to do workouts at least twice every week to maintain my fitness. My aim is to have a balanced lifestyle and to be a role model for people of different ages. Remember, it is not about the body but the mind.

The pulldown or 'lat' pulldown is an exercise mainly for the back although the shoulders and arms get some workout as well. The equipment for the cable pulldown is usually a weighted cable pulley station with adjustable weights and seat.

The latissimus dorsi on either side of the middle to upper back is the main target muscle group 

Muscles worked: the lats, shoulders and arms to a lesser extent  

I usually do 4 sets of 15 reps 

The bench press exercise activates a large number of muscle groups in the upper-half of your body. Such groups include your pecs, deltoids, your forearm muscles, hand muscles and your abdominals. Add the bench press to your workout to build your strength for push-ups, improve your power for sports performance and build bone density in your upper body. 

You can do 4 sets of 15 reps 

When doing one-arm dumbbell rows you are working the whole lat, the upper back, and the trap muscles. The back structure is so large and complex, for the best results, it's preferable to train the back through several exercises for more complete development.

I usually do 4 sets of 15 reps for each hand.


  1. So inspired. I think everyone should more understand their food they ate to stay healthy and fit. Keep it up!

  2. Thank you for your comments and agreed with my thinking. Will keep it up. Have a nice day.
