Toilet Paper - Bowel Movement
by Jordan Glenn

According to many personal trainers, having regular bowel movements is an important part of maintaining a fitness regimen. If for some reason a client is not as regular as they would like, it is a good idea to increase the intake of dietary fiber. Fiber can be increased by eating whole grains, and fruits, and vegetables. Instead of just having protein drinks, the fitness enthusiast can add green smoothies to their diet. These will increase fiber, and energy, and add additional nutrients, which are the building blocks of health .

A factor that is important during the resting and rebuilding phase is nutrition. A strong sculpted physique requires, regular workouts, rest, and proper nutrition. Under these conditions a healthy body will be able to build stronger muscles and increase fitness. The optimum word here is healthy. Besides proper nutrition, proper elimination is required to keep the body healthy. Cells are constantly breaking down and being rebuilt. To build the best cells possible the human body needs to be able to metabolize all of the nutrients that are ingested.

Nutrients are absorbed by an organ called the colon. A smooth clean colon has a porous membrane. This membrane absorbs nutrients as food passes through the colon and becomes waste. A colon that is not functioning properly will either become clogged or become coated with mucous. This results in the nutrients not being absorbed properly.

The easiest method to keep a clean and healthy colon is by having regular bowel movements. Exercise is one factor that helps keep the colon functioning properly. The more the body moves the more the colon seems to move. The other important factor is diet. Most body builders and people focusing on strength training try to eat clean. Usually eating clean consists of lean proteins, whole grains, vegetables, and fruit.

Ask any personal trainer NYC and he or she will say that regular bowel movements and strength training go hand in hand. If you are not having regular bowel movements, you may be subjecting yourself to uncontrolled flatulence during exercise or the emergence of hemorrhoids. When it comes to bodybuilding and strength training there are physiological processes that tear down and rebuild the muscle. As the strength trainer lifts heavy weights, the muscle begins to tear and break down. During the resting or recuperation phase, the muscle rebuilds bigger and stronger. That is why rest is just as important as the work out, when it comes to building muscle and strength.
