11 Signs You Are About To Have a Heart Attack

Heart disease is either the number 1 or number 2 killer of Americans. Heart attacks present themselves differently in each person and even between the sexes.

However, there are enough common symptoms that if you experience one or two of these symptoms suddenly, you may want to either call 911 or visit the ER.

Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

You don’t have to have risk factors to have a heart attack, so be aware of symptoms!

11. Chest Pain
Both men and women tend to experience chest pain. In general, chest pain may be pain or may feel like pressure, squeezing, or fullness.

The pain often comes and goes and will last a few minutes. It may occur over several days. People describe the pain differently. Men describe it as an elephant sitting on you; women as a squeezing or feeling of fullness.

Chest pain occurs when your heart is not getting enough…

Reduce Lower Belly Fat With These 8 Simple Exercises

The lower belly is one of the main problem areas when it comes to losing weight, because it just refuses to let you go. It really messes up clothing sizes and other such things because sometimes even if you are losing weight over all, that belly just sticks to you as if with glue. There is always exercise and dieting but one must remember that there are only a few specific exercises that target lower belly fat and just a lot of leg days will not cut it.

Following is a list of exercises, thank me later!

Double leg lifts

Also known as the Mermaid exercise, this one puts a lot of pressure on your lower abdomen and gets the job done. It is pretty easy to do as well, all you have to do is lie on your back with your hands under your head, bring both your legs together, exhaling as you lift them up, holding them there for a few seconds and then brining them back down.

Flutter kicks

These do wonders for your lower belly and your thighs. Lie down like you would do for double leg lifts and then lift each of your legs up one by one while the other one is just below it- flutter!


We all know the benefits, do we not? Most people generally know how to do them but let me still give you a rundown. Lie on your back, hands behind you head with your legs folded. Lift your upper body up and try to get them as close to your knees as possible.

Criss cross

The criss cross will help you lose weight as well as tone your body as a whole. All you have to do for this one is lie on your back with your hands behind your head as usual with your legs folded. After that, bring the left side of your upper torso up to meet your right knee and vice versa.

Crunches on exercise ball

An exercise ball is a great investment. It helps your agility as well as stability. Exercise ball crunches: the name is pretty suggestive. All you have to do is your regular crunches, but with your waist on the exercise ball.

Rolling planks

This one helps you work on your strength and better your muscle tone. All you have to do is, lie down but not on your back, but sideways with your body resting upon the leg and arm of the side that you are lying on and hold this position. Start with about half a minute and try to get to at least a couple of minutes.

Vertical crunches

This one is pretty easy. It is like doing crunches but when you do them, raise your legs up high and then bring your torso up to reach your pelvis. Continue inhalation and exhalation throughout.


I believe the name gives it away. Lie down on your back and then lift your hips, inhaling and exhaling continuously, with your hands under your head.

These exercises do help, you know?
