4 Health Benefits of Cardio Workouts

June 24, 2015 11:25 am

People need cardio workouts in order to improve your heart’s function and keep it strong and healthy, and lucky for you, it’s actually much easier to squeeze in a cardio workout than you might expect. Here are just four great health benefits of cardio exercise.

1) It improves your heart’s health.
The most important benefit of cardiovascular exercise is the positive effect that it has on your heart. Things like running or biking make your heart pump blood at a faster rate than normal, and because your heart is one big muscle, this strengthens it even after you stop exercising.

2) It improves your mood.
Because cardiovascular exercise releases hormones that fight off stress and promote a sense of well being, you might feel happier and more energetic after working out.

3) It increases your metabolic function.
The more intense the cardio exercise, the faster it makes your metabolism function. This helps to maintain your weight or even promote weight loss.

4) It decreases recovery time.
If you hate cardio and love strength training, you might want to reconsider. Jogging or walking after performing another workout is known to quicken your recovery time, making the day after a long workout much more comfortable on your body.

Honda-Ya: Your New Date Night Destination in LA

June 17, 2015 10:32 am

Regulars appreciate the variety of Japanese dishes available at Honda-Ya, where both sushi lovers and those who aren’t so fond of sushi will feel at home. This isn’t the sort of showy teppanyaki restaurant where you watch a hibachi chef put on a flashy performance. Instead, it’s the type of place where you’re encouraged to relax with friends and loved ones around a private table and enjoy a selection of traditional Japanese foods.

Customers like the ambiance of Honda-Ya and say that there’s something for everyone on the menu here, including vegetarian dishes, meat dishes, and seafood dishes. Try the poki bowl, the nabeyaki udon, the spicy tuna roll, or the takoyaki. You can also select a sake from one of the many options on the drink list to accompany your meal.

Honda-Ya is a great venue for a gathering with friends or a date, and the price is right, too.
