When doing your workouts, work the larger muscle groups first. Larger muscle groups utilize more energy to train, so exercise those muscle groups first before you get tired. It's always best to train your bigger muscle groups first before working out the smaller muscles because macro-muscles are responsible for major movement and strength that help activate the micro-muscles. Your bigger muscle groups are your hamstrings, glutes, quadriceps, back, and chest. Your smaller muscle groups consist of shoulders, triceps, biceps, and calves.
When planning your meals and choosing what to eat, make sure you choose foods that are colorful. Such as a variety of fruits and vegetables of different colors. These different colors in fruits and vegetables display different vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are good for your muscles, brain, and bones. It will benefit you to keep your diet colorful!

Fact: The amount of water on Earth has stayed constant since its creation, thanks to the water cycle. This means that you are drinking the same water that a knight would before a battle, the same water the dinosaurs drank, and the same water life began in!
Tip: Walk as often as possible, and consider walking rather than driving. If you live in a safe neighborhood, walking can help cut down on emissions while also providing a free and easy way of getting exercise. By walking more, you can save money on fuel, car maintenance, etc, while also doing your part to create a cleaner atmosphere!
