We all know the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but here are a few things you might not know about apples:

-2500 varieties of apples are grown in the U.S.

-Apples are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, with about 4gm per medium apple.

-The skin of an apple contains antioxidants

-A medium apple contains about 81 calories

-Apples ward off metabolic syndrome

-Eating an apple before a workout boosts your energy and endurance levels because it contains the flavonoid called quercetin.

-Eating an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth-which helps prevent tooth decay

So, in the midst of the fall apple season, grab some today and start enjoying the benefits of apples.

 

tricep dips

 

 

 

 

Dip that is.

Triceps dips strengthen and tone the back of your arms, along with your shoulders and abdominals (which help stabilize the movement). Here is how to do a proper triceps dips:

Sit on a sturdy chair (bench or bottom stair). Place your hands on the chair at your sides with palms downward. Step your feet one to two feet in front of you, and then raise your buttocks off the chair. Bring your hips forward (towards your toes) about two inches. Keep your shoulders above your wrists. Now, lower yourself down two to six inches until your shoulders are in line with (or just above) the elbows. Push back up to the starting position. Keep your abs contracted as you lift and lower.

After a proper warm-up (shoulder rolls, jumping jacks etc.), try to to do one to three sets of 10-20 repetitions, but, listen to your body; it is okay to do more or less.
