Miami, Florida (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
MenScience Androceuticals, a leader in men’s skin care and nutrition, has launched five new health calculators to help men of all ages assess their fitness status. The calculators, which are hosted on the company blog MenScience Magazine, cover all aspects of men’s health including body mass index, basal metabolism and target heart rate. By providing men with these measurements, MenScience hopes to motivate them to make positive changes in their lifestyle.
“A lot of guys simply focus on their weight, but there’s so much more to fitness than just that number,” says MenScience CEO Federico Sanchez. “Heart rate…body mass index…all of it matters. With these numbers at their disposal, men can then change your daily habits for the better. In the end, it’s all about being healthy and looking great – the MenScience motto.”
Although there are currently five calculators, there are plans for several more before year’s end. The five calculators are as follows:
Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator – BMI is a rough estimate of one’s body fat. Men can input their measurements and find out whether they are overweight for their height.
Target Heart Rate Calculator – Different exercises require different target heart rates to get maximum benefits. This calculator can help find the ideal heart rate for weight-training and other common activities.
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) Calculator – The human body burns calories throughout the day – even at rest; this is known as BMR. Knowing one’s basal metabolic rate can help guys increase or decrease their calorie intake accordingly for desired results (weight loss, weight gain, etc.).
Calorie Burn Calculator – Wondering how many calories a specific activity burns? This calculator lists dozens of activities and how many calories they expend based on one’s age and weight.
Protein Calculator – Protein is essential for muscle growth, and most men are not getting enough of it. Using this tool will help men figure out how much of this macronutrient they need to maximize muscular development.
MenScience Magazine visitors also have the option of completing a fitness profile, which provides a list of nutrition and exercise recommendations for optimal health. The new calculators are just the latest feature of the premier men’s skincare and nutrition blog. More new tools and features are expected to debut later this year.
