At Hussle we know that planking is a good thing to do. It turns out there’s an optimal time to hold a plank. It's not as simple as hold for as long as you can!
Eggs are the easy go-to for a protein-packed breakfast. If you are a vegan or can’t eat eggs, here are some egg free, high protein vegan breakfast receipes.
Eat this. Don’t eat that. This is a super food. This will prevent cancer. For the right diet advice, who you gonna call? Dietitians, that’s who | Hussle |

Food labelling in the UK is tightly regulated, so labels do tell what you need to know. However the important information may not be what you think.
Building muscle? Surplus calories. Burning fat? Calorie deficit. You might think you can’t do both but with the right food you can slim down and muscle up.
Abdominal fat is stubborn. And the most harmful fat to carry. Don’t give up. There are several good reasons why your belly fat isn’t vanishing quickly.
Regular exercise is the best thing you can do for your health and well-being. But if you had to choose only 10 moves which would make your shortlist?
Eat too much of anything and you'll put on weight. Bread is not the bad guy. In fact whole grains make you feel fuller for longer | Hussle | food |

We all need ammo against the winter blues. Fresh air and exercise are a good start. A healthy diet is even better. It’s time to bring on the complex carbs!

Dementia has a huge impact on people and families. Fortunately, lifestyle changes can reduce your risk. Exercise, especially HIIT, can help to prevent dementia.
oh well, the office cake run problem is now officially solved for a while! that might just help my waistline. Every cloud...
even at the moment, these are all staples and easy to get hold. No excuse not to have a healthy diet, and not too pricey either.
perfect small space no kit exercises, just what is needed at the moment. I will have amazing abs when this is over!
now we are all so restricted, please try and get your older relatives and friends to keep up what movement they can. There are home workouts if they can't leave the house. It matters!
My grandad is in his 80s and he is so fit. But he has been all his life so didn't start late. I doubt he's even heard of telemores, he just does it because he enjoys it. Lesson for all of us to age well there.
I always feel very inspired by these 70 and 80 year olds who are lifting weights and running marathons. Keep it up - you are keeping the younger generation healthy without realising!
These are great ideas. Not being able to get to the gym means I'm struggling with my strength training so I would recommend anyone at home doing these to keep their strength up.
good point about the ready wrapped sandwiches - I don't know why it is so, but they always have a massive calorie count!
I've never done so many ab exercises as I have in the last week of being stuck at home. I think when the lockdown is over there's going to be a lot of flat abs out there!
Wow, not exercising could be as bad for you as smoking. That's a serious wake up call. But I'm not surprised. I feel rubbish if I don't exercise so can't imagine what you'd feel like if you smoke and don't exercise either.
A small amount of the real thing is exactly right. I would rather have a little butter on my toast than a pile of cheap margarine. We need to support the farmers with their natural products, especially now.
for some reason the typewriter pull up has really tickled me - I will have to make the noise if I can ever get that far!
many people are doing a lot more baking now - that combined with reduced exercise isn't going to do us any good! I know we all want comfort food but go easy on the cake.
Simple ab exercises like this are ideal if you're stuck indoors at the moment. I have been doing my own routine of abs for the few days and already am noticing a difference and they make sure I don't get too slobby as I can't go to the gym.
I really agree with don't ever stop. I find in my early 40s that if I do stop for any reason (business, illness) then it's really hard to get going again. Just keep it going as much as you can as a routine, and don't stop if you don't have to!
I would say if you want to lose weight then definitely stay off the carbs. Even wholemeal bread and pasta can raise your blood sugar more than you'd think, so really reduce all carbs and the weight will melt off in my experience.
they say that your kids keep you young - not entirely sure I agree with that at the moment... But a big thing for me is to make sure I set an example to them by exercising as a matter of course. I want every chance of seeing their children.
Come on people, just eat lots of veg and natural food, leave out the sugar and processed rubbish, exercise a lot and you will balance out to be the weight you're meant to be.
The trick is to make your own sweet treats and reduce the sugar, such as scones and fruit cake. At least you know it's all real ingredients then too, nothing ultra-processed.
I think Ashley has the right mix between healthcare and attitude!! I fear a bit of a stomach is an inevitable part of ageing, but do need to keep it under control.
I find time a real issue since I've had children. But I still do my exercise. I feel it ultimately saves me time because I have much more energy for other things if I'm fit so I'm more productive in my life.
SO many older people who want to lose weight still seem to turn to low fat processed stuff and avoid butter etc. They just don't get that actually natural fats will help them lose weight and fake alternatives are probably even worse for their health.
you see 90 year olds doing marathons so there must be hope for all of us. I think a lot of it is down to good genes, and that's a matter of luck, but there's certainly stuff we can do to tip the odds.
