Based on her own experiences, Gemma wants to help other new mums ease their way back into exercise and nourish themselves with the right kinds of food. This is not about weight loss or dieting, or unachievable workout routines. Instead, it's a book that keeps things real, with a focus on safe post-natal exercises that have been divided into those you can do at home and those you can use to build your confidence when returning to the gym. These exercises form the 12-week Bump to Body Plan, which can be started six weeks after giving birth. Along with 75 nutritious and simple recipes, perfect for fitting around a newborn baby's routine, the book will also include self-care advice for being kind to yourself during those early weeks and months of getting used to being a new mum. Gemma will share her own experiences of giving birth and caring for her new baby, including the impact on both her body and her mental health. Crucially, she didn't put herself under any pressure to lose weight or to follow a diet regime after giving birth to her daughter; instead, she gave herself time to find her way back to herself, through carefully structured post-natal fitness routines and eating well - and now she wants to help other new mums to do the same. Alongside the recipes and fitness plan, Gemma will also share the secrets behind her seemingly boundless energy and positivity!

From body-positive Instagram influencer and content-creator Meg Boggs, an inclusive and empowering fitness and lifestyle guide to inspire readers of every shape and size. For years, Meg Boggs believed the narrative told to her by society: she thought that as a plus-sized woman, she could never be fit; she could never be strong; she could never love exercise; she could never be enough.

A soldier's level of physical fitness has a direct impact on his combat readiness. The many battles in which American troops have fought underscore the important role physical fitness plays on the battlefield. The renewed nationwide interest in fitness has been accompanied by many research studies on the effects of regular participation in sound physical fitness programs. The overwhelming conclusion is that such programs enhance a person's quality of life, improve productivity, and bring about positive physical and mental changes. Not only are physically fit soldiers essential to the Army, they are also more likely to lead enjoyable, productive lives. This manual is primarily concerned with issues relating directly to the development and maintenance of the five components of physical fitness: OCardiorespiratory (CR) endurance--the efficiency with which the body delivers oxygen and nutrients needed for muscular activity and transports waste products from the cells. OMuscular strength--the greatest amount of force a muscle or muscle group can exert in a single effort. OMuscular endurance--the ability of a muscle or muscle group to perform repeated movements with a submaximal force for extended periods of time. OFlexibility--the ability to move the joints (for example, elbow or knee) or any group of joints through an entire, normal range of motion. OBody composition--the amount of body fat a soldier has in comparison to his total body mass. U.S. ARMY FITNESS TRAINING HANDBOOK is an outstanding resource for anyone interested in improving mental health, physical health, and general well-being
