Umroh Januari - Memiliki tubuh ideal penting untuk meningkatkan kepercayaan diri seseorang dalam pergaulan. Namun apa jadinya jika impian untuk mendapatkan tubuh ideal terhalang oleh timbunan lemak membandel di tubuh?

Maka tidak ada jalan lain selain menurunkan kadar lemak tersebut. Nah, jika Anda belum menemukan cara efektif untuk mengatasi lemak membandel di tubuh Anda, sebaiknya simak tip berikut ini.

Bulatkan Tekad
Ini adalah modal awal yang tidak boleh dilewatkan. Keberhasilan Anda berawal dari seberapa besar tekad Anda untuk meraih tubuh ideal. Jika Anda hanya coba-coba tetapi mengharapkan hasil cepat dan maksimal, sebaiknya Anda berpikir ulang.

Membakar lemak dengan cara sehat adalah sebuah proses yang menuntun Anda pada gaya hidup sehat. So, sama sekali tidak ada ruginya jika Anda fokuskan pikiran Anda untuk melakukan sesuatu yang bisa memperbaiki kualitas hidup Anda.

Bersenang-senang dengan latihan
Latihan itu akan menyengsarakan jika Anda menganggapnya seperti itu. Padahal latihan itu diciptakan untuk menyenangkan tubuh Anda. Tubuh kita didesain untuk melakukan lebih banyak aktivitas fisik, bukan bermalas-malasan di sofa sambil menonton TV.

Lihatlah kesudahan orang-orang yang jarang melakukan aktivitas fisik. Berbagai penyakit seperti diabetes, serangan jantung, stroke, hingga kematian mendadak, kerap dialami orang-orang yang tidak aktif secara fisik. Nah, kalau sudah begitu, Anda tidak akan berharap untuk menjadi salah satu dari mereka. So, have fun with exercises!

Coba latihan Ini
Ada berbagai latihan yang efektif untuk meningkatkan pembakaran lemak, di antaranya:

-   Aerobik
    Latihan aerobik biasanya dilakukan dengan musik dalam sebuah kelompok. Biasanya, ada instruktur yang memimpin gerakan dan isyarat dari perubahan gerakan aerobik. Bahkan beberapa latihan aerobik mulai mengadopsi gerakan dance untuk memunculkan ‘fun factor’ saat latihan.

-   Latihan Interval
    Sebuah studi menemukan bahwa setelah 2 minggu latihan interval, lemak tubuh dapat terbakar 36% lebih banyak. Latihan interval bisa dilakukan dalam waktu yang singkat. Contohnya, lakukan sprint selama 10 detik kemudian lari kecil 15 detik, kemudian sprint lagi begitu seterusnya selama 10-15 menit.

-   Cross Training
    Prinsip cross training adalah menggabungkan beberapa latihan untuk melatih berbagai bagian tubuh. Misalnya melakukan latihan dengan stationary bike sebelum melakukan jogging di pagi hari. Atau lari di treadmill sebelum berenang.

-   Latihan Beban
    Lakukan latihan beban terutama untuk melatih otot-otot seperti bahu, punggung, serta kaki agar tubuh membakar lebih banyak kalori setiap saat. Semakin banyak massa otot yang Anda miliki, semakin banyak lemak yang akan tersingkir dari tubuh Anda.

Perbanyak lauknya, bukan nasinya
Masyarakat Indonesia masih terbiasa mengonsumsi banyak nasi putih dengan sedikit lauk. Nah, agar hasil latihan Anda maksimal dan lemak bisa berkurang lebih cepat, maka pola makan di atas harus terbalik, yaitu sedikit nasi putih dan perbanyak lauknya.

Anda harus memilih lauk yang tinggi protein seperti, putih telur, dada ayam, kedelai dan olahannya (tahu, tempe, susu kedelai, dan lainnya), ikan, dan masih banyak lagi pilihan makanan berprotein tinggi dengan harga terjangkau.

Bakar lemak dengan tidur
Latihan sudah. Menjaga pola makan juga sudah. Nah, sekarang ada satu aktivitas menyenangkan lain yang dapat membantu Anda membakar lemak lebih cepat, yaitu tidur. Semua orang pasti suka tidur, termasuk Anda.

Tidur 7-8 jam sehari dapat meningkatkan kemampuan tubuh dalam meningkatkan massa otot dan membakar lemak. Jadi, tidur cukup bisa menjadi opsi terbaik untuk membakar lebih banyak lemak demi mendapatkan tubuh ideal seperti yang Anda impikan.

It’s easy to burn fat.


From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.

In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.

Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.

The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.

The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.

The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.

It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.

Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.

That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.

Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.

The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.

THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”

The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.

Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.

That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.

Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself.
