1. Hormone boost

It’s not a secret that muscle building happens due to the influence of hormones, and morning is the right time when the hormone, especially testosterone levels, are at an all-time high. Take advantage of the way your body works and notice your muscle mass growing with just a little of your effort.

2. Caffeine helps you

For most office workers, morning doesn’t start until they’ve had their first cup of coffee of the day, and when you work out in the morning, coffee can be very beneficial in two major ways. First, caffeine in the coffee will help you feel more powerful and energetic, so you can do more in less workout time. Second, coffee can help you burn more calories after the session.

3. Steady schedule

If you’ve been working out in the afternoons for some time, you’ve probably been guilty of skipping a workout here and there due to family matters or work overloads. Shifting your workouts to the morning hours will help you maintain a steadier routine, as in the morning you are less likely to get distracted by various issues.

4. Better sleep

Scheduling heavy workouts for the evening will likely make your body feel so pumped up that you’ll likely to experience trouble falling asleep afterwards. Luckily, that is not the case with early morning workouts, as in the evening you’ll have time to relax and unwind instead of putting your body under tremendous amounts of stress.

5. Improve metabolism

Metabolism is one of the most important parameters for fitness fans. Your metabolism rate influences your ability to burn calories and lose weight or maintain a healthy body. Working out before work will give your metabolism such a boost that you will continue burning calories throughout the day even when you’re doing regular things.

6. Get healthier

Working out is known for its abilities to help our bodies in a variety of amazing ways, but the two most valuable health benefits of working out in the early hours is that you can vastly improve the state of your cardiovascular system and that you can significantly lower the risks of contracting diabetes, which is one of the most rapidly progressing diseases of the XXI century.

FG To Prosecute Food Vendors Using PCBs

Published

on

The Federal Government is making plans to prosecute users of PolyChlorinated Biphenyl (PCBs), popularly known as transformer oil, in frying “akara” (bean cake), plantain chips, chicken and other food items.
Prof. Babajide Alloy, a Consultant to the Federal Ministry of Environment, made the disclosure yesterday in an interview with newsmen on the sidelines of a workshop in Calabar.
According to him, the consumption of food prepared from the chemical substance will expose the public to cancers of the lungs, heart, kidney and liver diseases.
“For a long time, PCBs was the cooling liquid used in electricity transformers, until the world found out that this oil was toxic ,and is trying to phase it out
“Jail term awaits those caught using PCBs to fry akara, chicken and plantain chips at road side to sell to the public because the oil is toxic and carcinogenic.
“We found out that it is all over the place in Nigeria, dump-sites, and in old National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) compounds,” he said.
Alloy said a survey carried out by the ministry revealed that the oil was currently being used in making food like akara.
The consultant added that the unsuspecting public were being deceived by the likeness of the  oil to the commonly used groundnut oil.
“Some food vendors now mix  PCBs with groundnut oil to fry akara and sell  to the general public.
“Of course, they may not know how hazardous what they are doing is. This exercise is to sensitise policy makers and everyone of this malaise.
“It is important to note that spillage of PCBs is always a danger when equipment is to be transported; it should, therefore, be transported only in sealed containers,” he said.
The workshop was organised for state councils, regulatory bodies, power operators and custom officers on application of PCBs regulations and guidelines for Environmentally Sound Management (ESM) of PCBs.
