    Kre Alkalyn (All American EFX)So today i am going to review Kre Alkalyn creatine from the house of All American EFX. There are so many different kind of creatine on the market and they say that this is the god of all creatine , with this i mean kre Alkalyn.for some reasons they say that kre alkaline is better than plain mono because it is PH buffered meaning that it doesn’t break down like other creatine does and because of that it absorbs better into the muscles, One other pro’s of this kind of creatine is that there is no loading phase like creatine mono-hydrate and less water…

  • Gut bacteria promote obesity in mice

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    A species of gut bacteria called Clostridium ramosum, coupled with a high-fat diet, may cause animals to gain weight, researchers report. They observed that mice harboring human gut bacteria including C. ramosum gained weight when fed a high-fat diet. Mice that did not have C. ramosum were less obese even when consuming a high-fat diet, and mice that had C. ramosum but consumed a low-fat diet also stayed lean.

    When a couple decides to end their marriage before "death do us part," the decision can cause a ripple effect among friends and family. You may be tempted to step in to prevent what you consider to be a mistake or maybe you want to exclaim “it’s about time!” Then there are worries about how your friend is holding up or how she’ll manage in the future. But the truth is your soon-to-be-single friend doesn't need to hear any of that.

    Preliminary research by scientists at Ontario’s McMaster University shows that exercise not only keeps skin looking younger, but also enhances skin health at a microscopic level. One experiment analyzed the skin of 29 men and women ranging in age from 20 to 84. When researchers sorted skin samples based on exercise habits, they found that people over 40 who exercised frequently had skin comparable to that of people half their age. In another experiment, researchers put sedentary volunteers, age 65 and older, on a three-month exercise program requiring them to jog or bicycle twice weekly…

  • Fitness Fix: How to Loosen Early-Morning Body Stiffness

    Bryan Krahn, CSCS
    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Waking up feeling stiff in your muscles and joints is fairly common. While it might be tempting to try some static stretches to loosen things up, experts say that stretching first thing in the morning may do more harm than good. When we lie down at night to sleep, our spines are decompressed, so the intervertebral discs collect water, explains back expert Stuart McGill, PhD, of the Spine Biomechanics Laboratory at Canada’s University of Waterloo. This increased hydration builds tension within the discs and makes the spine stiff. Once we get up and move around, the discs slowly return to…
  • Buddy System: Naddir Eldeeb’s Success Story

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Growing up, I was always big. My parents owned a corner grocery with a large candy section, and I’d walk in and help myself to whatever I wanted — sweets, candy bars, and more. I established a lot of bad eating habits. Aside from school recess periods, I didn’t exercise at all. By seventh grade, I was 280 pounds. And I just kept getting bigger. I ate at McDonald’s, Taco Bell, or Burger King every day. At home, I’d ask my mom to fix steak and French fries for dinner. I was drinking up to six liters of soda daily. By the time I was 18, I weighed 410 pounds and was so out of shape that…

    Ideally, a good fitness program includes strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility training. But if you enjoy walking, it’s possible to vary your intensity and terrain in ways that support your goals. “Walking is a great low-impact, weight-bearing activity that can help keep your bones strong and exercise major muscle groups,” says Mark Fenton, Tufts University adjunct associate professor and author of The Complete Guide to Walking for Health, Weight Loss, and Fitness. If you’re a beginner looking to improve your health, walking just 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk of…

    I smile each time I walk past this sign. The husband shared recently how much he’s seen me change since we moved to Oakland. “In the 21 years Ive known you (!) the only other time Ive seen you change so noticeably is when you moved to Guatemala.  You left Texas as Carla, took on the role of new (temporarily single) mom in a country where you didn’t speak the language and nothing was the same as it was in Austin.  You returned so much stronger.” I’ve thought about this remark a lot since he shared it in marriage counseling (a post for a different day).

I love that it will improve the health of its riders. I don't love the fact that Boston Medical Center President and CEO Kate Walsh promoted the program by suggesting the bike share will help to combat obesity as you'll no sooner out-ride your fork than out-run it, and…

Reality is that not all Parisians gorge on croissant and espresso before going to work. And we have the video here by Leaf TV with the ‘perfect Parisian breakfast’ to prove it; find the recipe below.

    Did you watch this last night? "I don't want you to go through what your dad has gone through." -Dr. So -- you KNOW I am thinking it -- I probably yelled AT THE TV. I would like to know what happened to Rob's dad after all this crying and freaking out with the shaming of the wheel-chair.  I hate when information about weight loss surgery is thrown out there to the general public like "this" without any context. Biggest Loser, please explain.  I understand that the producers like to create 'breakthrough' moments with the contestants to get them motivated and moving forward and to tear off…

  • The Cholesterol Myths

    18 Sep 2014 | 10:10 pm
      Danish physician, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, has for years been at the forefront of the movement to de-demonize cholesterol. Not only has he written three popular books on the subject, he has published over a hundred articles in the medical and scientific literature and spoken at academic conferences the world over. In addition, he founded and runs THINCS, The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics, an organization that includes physicians and scientists from around the globe. Due to problems with the publisher of his first and, in my view, most comprehensive book on cholesterol, Dr.

      First and foremost, MD and I would like to thank each and everyone one of you who provided suggestions and recommendations for an updated version of Protein Power. Based on all your comments, it appears it will be more of a rewrite than an update, which creates problems with the publisher. I’ll elaborate in future posts as I learn more. It may turn out that we’ll have to self publish to do what we want to do. Mainstream publishing is such a hidebound industry – almost no room for creativity.

      It is difficult for me to believe, but Protein Power is coming up on being 20 years old. It was written in 1995 and published in January of 1996. There has been some talk between our agent and the publisher about a 20 year anniversary edition of the book. MD and I have decided that if we go along with this project, we don’t want to just do a new Introduction and make a few tweaks here and there. We want to do it up right and make Protein Power 2.0 (or whatever it will be called) the most up-to-date and comprehensive book on low-carb dieting available. And we want it to hold up for…

      This review of The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz is the most difficult and demanding I have ever written. It is demanding for a couple of reasons. First, it is psychologically demanding on me because I want to write a review so good it inspires everyone to buy the book immediately and read it. Why? Because I think it is one of the most important books on nutrition ever written. Maybe the most important. And I feel a responsibility to inspire as many people as I can to get their hands on it. Second, this book is so brimming with valuable information that I was almost paralyzed in…

I soon realized the entire affair was an exercise in futility, so extracted myself from it. It was an exercise in futility because it was a blatant case of the confirmation bias writ large.

    30 Sep 2014 | 2:55 pm
    Too much severe calorie restriction, hunger and starvation could bring on binge-eating. And, binge-eating can become a full blown disorder if you're not careful.The Mayo Clinic defines binge-eating disorder as follows:"Binge-eating disorder is a serious eating disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food. Almost everyone overeats on occasion, such as having seconds or thirds of a holiday meal. But for some people, overeating crosses the line to binge-eating disorder and it becomes a regular occurrence, shrouded in secrecy.When you have binge-eating…

  • Saturated Fats: A Weight Loss Alternative To Starvation and Exercise

    25 Sep 2014 | 9:11 am
    This weird trick is for people who haven't been able to keep the weight off, though they've tried to do so for years.A surprising finding is, to lose weight, you have to consume a certain amount of healthy fats, including saturated fats. They ensure steady energy as well as a feeling of satisfaction. (The amount you eat is up to you.)Saturated fats are things such as whole cream, animal fat and coconut oil. Grass-fed butter is another example of healthy, saturated fat.The next time you are hungry, to keep from overeating, consider consuming grass-fed butter (without the bread or crackers).

    LeBron James has been getting a lot of attention lately on social media as well as the sports networks for his recent weight loss.The weight loss occurred over the past two summer months and he used a low carbohydrate plan to do it."The basic, scientific concept behind James’ weight loss and low-carb diet is simple: train the body to rely on fat for fuel. The goal of restricting your daily intake of carbohydrates is to create a metabolic state called ketosis, where the body uses fat as a source of energy instead of glucose (aka carbs) in the blood and liver.

But it’s the lazy people who invented the wheel and the bicycle because they didn’t like walking or carrying things. Lech Walesa For years, I have thought this to be true. I’ve thought that my laziness was a GOOD thing because it made me invent better ways of doing things. But when I look at it honestly, ONE important question comes to mind.

So, pumpkin flavoring is made from a concoction of chemicals that mimic the taste and mouth feel of pumpkin. Even the option that I suggested in my entry, Beware The Pumpkin Spice Latte, is the same concoction of chemicals, they’re just provided in a sugar-free format that is much less expensive than the coffees at Starbucks. More importantly, is the manipulation from the food industry with LTOs. Limited Time Offers are foods…

    Whenever we talk about self-esteem or learning to love ourselves, we never talk about one of the most POWERFUL ways to show it. My whole life, I’ve felt that the way you tell if someone loves you is by their ACTIONS, not their words. If a guy said he loved me and then insulted me or tried to get me to do things I wasn’t comfortable doing, I instantly knew that he didn’t love me. I got this from an old quote: What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say. Ralph Waldo Emerson This holds true for ourselves. We can do all the self-esteem exercises in the world.

    Once you get over the fact that trituration is a real word that means chew and grind to a fine powder you get to the reason why Green Star uses triturating juicer instead of masticating juicer. Before we get to that, a basic anatomy and biology review helps to remember what the original and most natural juicers are. That is your teeth. Your teeth, by chewing, grind, no so much cut, the food especially fruits and vegetables. The grinding actions of chewing in the presence of natural enzymes in the mouth breaks down the cellular structure of the food and release the nutrients inside. Even if we…

NC800 needs a commercial motor to turn its single augur which is about 8 times stronger than Omega’s original models.

  • 16 Ways Green Space Improves Your Life

    Mark Sisson

    Most people like being surrounded by nature. Even if it’s just a walk through a suburban city park or puttering about in a backyard garden, we’re drawn to green spaces filled with grass, trees, and leafy vegetation. They make us feel better. But the way we describe the effects of green space is all very amorphous and abstract and general, isn’t it? We “feel good” sitting on the grass. “It’s nice” to take a walk along a forest path. The office “doesn’t feel right” without a potted plant on the desk. Those sorts of benefits are…

Even what seems like a moderate dose can still affect how we recover from our workouts. Second, what should a person do if they really can’t stand standing at work? If the chair is looking really attractive after a morning workout, should we give in to our desire to sit or try to tough it out? The answer may surprise you.

At the very least, it’ll warm your belly and provide a satisfying meal, and with this recipe, no take-out menu is needed. You can choose to seek out authentic ingredients (like lily buds and cloud ear fungus) or simply go with dried shiitake mushrooms. Likewise, ingredients like soy sauce, sugar and red rice vinegar can be replaced with coconut aminos and plain rice vinegar. This recipe also nixes tofu and cornstarch, resulting in a soup that isn’t traditional…

While people are paying over $1000 for a fancy cardio machine, they could be getting in a better workout by spending less than $8 (Here’s my rope). I told Dan a long time ago that if he agreed to let me buy a treadmill, I would cancel my gym membership (gotta have a back-up for rainy days). To which he responded by asking where my jump rope was. Good play my friend, good play. Jump roping is pretty much the equivalent of sprinting… it burns more than 10 calories…

But it’s #2 that we’re going to discuss today… “Be More Toned” Women don’t want to increase muscle, they just want to tone up. Right?

The best way to avoid gaining the extra kilos on your hips and waist is to eat in moderation and follow a regular exercise regimen. There are small ways in which you can regulate your diet during this season, in spite of a few momentary pleasures. 1. Watch the fat intake: Keep a tab on your overall oil, ghee, butter, cream and cheese intake. If you want to indulge in some fried food, try and cut the added fat intake during the rest of the day.

    Experts say that artichokes are high in antioxidants — more so than most vegetables. Antioxidants neutralise and remove free radicals from your bloodstream, thereby maintaining good health. Artichokes contain antioxidants like rutin, cynarin, quercertin, silymarin, luteolin and anthocyanins. Certain studies reveal that women who regularly consume artichokes have a lower risk of breast cancer than women who don’t. Artichoke leaf extracts induce cell death and reduce cell proliferation in prostate cancer and leukemia. Artichoke leaves have a polyphenol antioxidant known as cynarin,…

At the core of this trend is an insidious, yet tiny, belief that keeps people struggling upstream like salmon in a ladder.  It sabotages efforts to lose weight and get healthy, to alleviate pain, and, ultimately to be happy. Shifting this belief from the false to the true is no bigger of a switch from believing that the sun rises and sets to understanding that we’re traveling around the sun on a giant…

For you, it might be the kind of relationship that lights up romantic comedies and leaves you with tears of happiness, or a career that doesn’t make you vomit at the very thought of showing up for work. Whatever your dreams, goals and aspirations, if you haven’t quite gotten there yet, it’s not your fault. There’s a lot of fluff going about in the personal development and psychology realms…
  • This is why you’re anxious and stressed out all the time

    Sukie
    3 Sep 2014 | 2:10 pm
    I’m always insatiably curious, especially when it comes to body-based transformation. A few years ago, my curiosity led me into a local yoga workshop to alleviate anxiety. I was interested in yoga’s take on a cultural epidemic. I was shocked to see how packed the class was. In fact, it was so overfull that I was only able to attend the first day. “Look around you,” the instructor told us, “and see how many of us are living this double life. Clearly, we have a problem.” And we do. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, about 18% of adults…
  • What if Fixing Your Bad Posture is Doing More Harm than Good?

    Sukie
    27 Aug 2014 | 5:36 am
    Conventional wisdom says that if you have bad posture, you should work on it. Make it better. Improve it. In short, it’s time to go to the mechanic and have your body “fixed.” But what if fixing your bad posture is just making the problem worse? What if strengthening those back muscles to pull your rounded shoulders back into place is making your body want to hunch them even more? What if stretching your quads to correct your lower cross syndrome and silence your grouchy (and highly vocal) back is just increasing the strain on your spine? That would seem odd. I mean, if the…

  • The Difference Between Olympic and ATG Squats

    Clint Darden
    1 Oct 2014 | 7:37 am
    When the primary criteria by which we evaluate the validity of a squat is its depth, it is understandable why lifters everywhere would pervert the idea of a perfect squat to mean the deepest squat. It is also understandable that, if you’re willing to face public (and I use ‘public’ very loosely here, given the backwards social-interaction rules of social media — YouTube included), you’re going to squat as deep as possible, lest you be dubbed “high squatter.” What isn’t understandable is the way OLY and ATG squats (that’s Olympic and…
  • To Inflame or Not to Inflame: Is Arachidonic Acid the Answer?

    Scott Stevenson
    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    In part one of this article series, I introduced the complex role of arachidonic acid (ARA) in eicosanoid production, particularly in the context of using ARA supplementation to “trick” our bodies into growing by amplifying the inflammatory response to exercise. In Part two of this article series, we’ll keep digging. Does the available science support ARA as a quick n’ easy way to gain muscle mass? ARA: Diet, Exercise and Supplementation Does exercise use up arachidonic acid? Because it repeatedly triggers inflammation, exercise training repeatedly draws upon ARA to produce…

    There are many things that are thrown out on the internet, in the gym locker room, or in other places that many think are set in stone. I’m a person who isn’t inclined to believe everything I hear or read. Maybe it’s because I’m somewhat of a contrarian by nature or that I like to go against common beliefs and find my own way, but I usually like to challenge what may be considered status quo and think critically and analytically before I buy into anything that someone may be selling. Because of this, I wanted to spend some time touching on a few things that I’ve…

My guess is that you probably see a picture of ice cream with a Pop-Tart® and #IIFYM at least 15 times a day. What does it all mean? Because it’s ambiguous in nature, everyone seems to have his own interpretation of IIFYM. Yet IIFYM is not a specific diet. It’s just a method for tracking and hitting your intake, so please shut up about it now. If it fits your macros (macronutrients)…let’s not make this complicated. Find the daily calories you want to…

    “Dumb meathead.” We’ve all heard this term, whether in casual conversation with a new acquaintance or from a stranger whispered under their breath when standing behind you in the checkout line at the grocery store. This moniker is often well-earned, as too many strength and physique athletes perpetuate this negative stereotype. Many athletes forget that a combination of mind and body not only helps one excel in academic and career pursuits but can also help them perform to the best of their ability in the athletic arena. Nootropics are a class of drugs and supplements that has seen…

    Photo by Pamela Hernandez At BlogFest, Jillian Michaels made a statement in her almost hour long Q&A with us that spoke directly to my heart. Someone asked her what do you do with the client who just won’t do what you ask. The one who professes a heart felt desire to get fit but won’t do their exercise homework or keep a food journal? The audience member asked how do you, as personal trainer, overcome that? Her answer? You don’t. She went on to say that most fitness professionals on some level have to be co-dependent. While I am sure she meant this in jest, she got close to my truth…

Laura had a newborn and a young son so my initial thought was one of them was ill or injured. Laura was just getting started and I worried that if this issue was serious, it might set her back a few weeks. I could not have imaged that we would not work together again for almost 9 months. When I received this text message later that day I was in shock. In Laura’s words, here is what happened that…

  • Some workouts to try for beginners

    Bojan
    30 Sep 2014 | 7:54 am
    Coaching for a while, I was able to witness couple of obstacles that usually stop most people from seeing results with fitness. The thing about them all is that they are as common with beginners as they are with more experienced folks. Regardless the program they follow, most people stumble on couple of similar bumps along their fitness journey. Why most people quit, and never achieve results? First of all, you must understand that these problems are universal when it comes to following a program, regardless of whether it is a fitness one, or some other sort of personal development course.

    Nowadays we are all obsessed with getting stuff, doing stuff, maintaining stuff. Fitness, and having a nicely shaped body, is no exception. We not only want to make a great looking body, sculpt our abs, define our arms and shoulders- but also want to maintain that shape, keep it constant. Don’t get me wrong now; the fitness journey is, in itself, a transformation towards better life. Not only will you look better, but you will feel better, perform better- both physically and emotionally. But when life gets in the way, with all the upkeep that usually comes with it, it is hard to maintain…

    The newest workout program by Beachbody P90 is already making a huge buzz in the fitness industry. It took Tony Horton 20 years of experience to finally be ready to say that this is his finest product up to date. A powerful statement if you consider how well its predecessors turned out to be. Namely, P90 is very similar to P90X, only without the “extreme” part of it. It is what Tony calls it, the on switch to fitness. Before reviewing P90, who it is for? Unlike other more demanding programs released by Beachbody, this one is the one everybody can do. So it goes that it is targeting…

It is a home workout program, put on DVD, with its aim to make you lose weight during the period of two months, while doing 25 minutes of exercise per day. In this review, judging by the results I’ve witnessed, I will try to cover why I think it is successful and why it works so well.

    Whether it is used to maximise sporting prowess or to stay fit and active, endurance training is an excellent fitness option. However, it can also be damaging on our joints and various soft tissues including tendons, ligaments and muscles. For endurance athletes, those who compete in ultra long distance events with a view to pushing their physical capabilities to the limit, the risks are further magnified. From soft and connective tissue injuries such as muscle tears and ruptured tendons respectively, the repetitive strain placed on joints, and the massive, and prolonged impact our bones must…

    Shin splints is a common term often thrown around the footy club, the running track or even around the home of a casual jogger. It is a condition characterised by damage and inflammation of the connective tissue joining muscles to the inner shin bone. The anatomy of the lower leg is complex – a matrix of muscles and tendons intertwine to contribute to activities from standing to sprinting and everything in between. The deep muscles attach to the inner shin bone via tissue known as tenoperiosteum. Every contraction of the calf pulls on the tenoperiosteum. If the force is repetitive…

  • What Your Personal Trainer Can’t Fix

    Pamela Hernandez
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:15 am
    Photo by Pamela Hernandez At BlogFest, Jillian Michaels made a statement in her almost hour long Q&A with us that spoke directly to my heart. Someone asked her what do you do with the client who just won’t do what you ask. The one who professes a heart felt desire to get fit but won’t do their exercise homework or keep a food journal? The audience member asked how do you, as personal trainer, overcome that? Her answer? You don’t. She went on to say that most fitness professionals on some level have to be co-dependent. While I am sure she meant this in jest, she got close to my truth…

    One morning, about a year ago, I got a text from a client. She told me wasn’t going to be able to make our training session that night. She said she was at the ER and would send me details later. Laura had a newborn and a young son so my initial thought was one of them was ill or injured. Laura was just getting started and I worried that if this issue was serious, it might set her back a few weeks. I could not have imaged that we would not work together again for almost 9 months. When I received this text message later that day I was in shock. In Laura’s words, here is what happened that…

    (CC BY-ND 2.0) Helga Weber/Flickr A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) seems to favor the use of waist circumference to alert us to the probably obvious fact that we are fat and therefore unhealthy. Too much fat around the waist is associated with a significantly increased risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and death. However, before discussing that study, I though we should look at the current king of fat indices, the BMI, and the various other obesity index contenders.

    This tip is a brief look at the major stages of workout nutrition, and their goals. A bit of fine-tuning here can go a long way indeed. From Gymchat 133 - Workout Nutrition : Kurtis Frank.Any meal can contribute to a workout (glycogen replenishment mostly), but generally workout nutrition is broken into three segments. The pre-workout, the intra-workout (optional dependent on goals), and the post-workout. Pre-workout is literally just a meal you eat before you hit the gym. It holds more importance than other meals (say, breakfast if you train in the PM) since the nutrients you ingest at this…

  • Stay Healthy on Vacation With This Simple Hack

    Steve
    29 Sep 2014 | 7:27 am
    Vacation: a chance to relax, unwind… and completely fall off the “healthy living” wagon! How is it that we can go months and months in perfect routine, dutifully eating healthy, never missing a workout, and staying on target, but a single week of vacation can be enough to throw us completely off balance and send us back to square one? Sure, it’s one thing to try and stay on target while traveling for work (which we cover here), but it can be a completely different beast to tackle while we’re on vacation. Late nights, early mornings, funky travel schedules,…

    Meet Dave Ferguson, a 23 year-old Canadian living on the Gaspé coast in Eastern Quebec. Dave is currently working as a webmaster, radio host, and as the assistant to the music director at a local radio station. Plus, he’s a volunteer firefighter. Dave started his journey at 418 lbs. Stuck in a cycle of weight gain and a sedentary lifestyle, Dave decided to try something new. He didn’t go about getting healthy like he had the millions of times before. This time was different, and he’s been documenting his progress through Nerd Fitness along the way. After losing 170 lbs,…

    This is a post from Rebel Chef Noel. It’s confession time. Ready? Here goes… I have always hated water levels. I hate them because I totally suck at them. That music still haunts me. (I’m not alone in this, right?) My very first game system growing up was the NES, and my favorite game was Super Mario Bros. 3, but every time I got to World 3: Ocean Side, it was Game Over.

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:14 am
    Since I’m usually officiating, I’m not the one who packs the gym bag to take our competitive boxing team to their events, but sometimes I pitch in to help the other coaches remember everything we need. And finally I wrote it all down, since that’s infinitely preferable to madly scrambling around at the last minute, trying to remember what all our boxing team will need once they get to the competitive arena. Btw, I searched the internet and didn’t find ANYTHING to help you pack your competition bag, so if you happen so see something, please link it in the comments.

    We were on the upper NC section of the Blue Ridge Parkway this year, which has more open, rolling pastureland than you see in the “High Country” lower down. The park’s boundaries are narrower in this section — sometimes only a half-mile wide — so in addition to enjoying some grassland “hobbit hikes” along with our mountain-climbing and waterfalls, we also brushed up against more farms, homes, and… well, cows… this year. (We called them wild cows, or cow-bears, in order to feel more daring and adventurous.) The photo above is the view just…
  • How to Work Against the Ropes

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    9 Apr 2014 | 11:35 am
    At most boxing gyms you’ll hear coaches tell you to stay off the ropes and control the center of the ring during your rounds. And that’s sound advice. But there’s also some good things to be said about being the kind of fighter who can perform well against the ropes, and even win a fight using rope skills. Here’s what I mean. When you’re new in the ring, you tend to fight your rounds with your back to the ropes because your opponent is controlling the motion and running things from the center. You go where your opponent sends you — toward the edges of the…

    The transition from the floor of the gym to the boxing ring can be a bitch. When you’re new, you can barely tell a jab from a cross; the prospect of live sparring feels like being dropped into a pit with Jabba the Hutt’s Rancor (pictured above, nomming someone’s arm). So how the hell do you know what to ask for or expect in a sparring partner? Well, you ask someone who’s been doing it a while. I’ll tell you my experience with it, and then you can ask someone else.

    The scoring of boxing events at the 2012 London Olympics was a mess. Yes, we were thrilled to finally see the ban against women’s boxing in the Olympic Games lifted, and despite heavy inequalities between the number of men versus the number of women allowed to compete, there was a tremendous showing of support. But the outdated, inefficient, and highly-variable computerized scoring rules that have governed amateur boxing for years finally caused enough problems to grease the wheels of massive change in the sport.

The convincing commercials, the video hd recordings, the slim design of the phone, video chatting, apple apps games, and many many more features was enough to get me to buy it. It took me over a month to get the Iphone4 when it was first released in Canada. People were lining up early in hopes of getting one because it was constantly sold out everywhere. Luckily for me, I knew a friend who worked at wireless waves and she just happened to had one black 32gb iphone4 left. She saved it for me and I was so excited once I got it.

It all happened pretty quickly considering I was trying to run across the crosswalk intersection. That was the last of my Samsung D900, I will always remember it as the phone that died horribly by my foot.

    Those feelings are apparently caused by endorphins.

They function as neurotransmitters in your body and have the abilities to produce a feeling of well-being.I found a good article called "what causes runner`s high?" recently posted by the new york times here.

For example, you use this muscle when getting out of a chair, placing a heavy item on the top shelf, raising a child over your head, playing tennis (especially when hitting a backhand), or pushing a door closed.  Why you should care about exercising your…

Went to bed and woke up the next morning to find that the company of the outfit you  wore in the picture had photoshopped the hell out of it? I don’t know about you, but I would have flipped my sh$t. Sure, I would have been angry about the changes but mostly, I would have been hurt that the company felt my body needed to be so drastically cut down. Am I not good enough? What’s wrong with my body that it needed to be transformed for…
  • 5 Things I Am Loving This Second

    27 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    I’m a woman which means that my opinions are allowed to change on a daily, no an hourly, basis. It’s one of the perks we get. And my opinions do change, a lot. Something I love one week, might not seem so great the following week. And something that I’m not crazy about today, may be the best thing since sliced bread tomorrow. That’s life. But for now, these are a few of my latest loves. I enjoy reading these kind of posts from other bloggers, so I hope you’ve been enjoying them too! To make it simple, all of the loves that are items are linked to Amazon (who…
  • Duality Workout: Killer Jump Rope + Strength Workout

    TaylorR
    25 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    The jump rope, aka the most under rated piece of fitness equipment ever, is making a comeback in this week’s workout. While people are paying over $1000 for a fancy cardio machine, they could be getting in a better workout by spending less than $8 (Here’s my rope). I told Dan a long time ago that if he agreed to let me buy a treadmill, I would cancel my gym membership (gotta have a back-up for rainy days). To which he responded by asking where my jump rope was. Good play my friend, good play. Jump roping is pretty much the equivalent of sprinting… it burns more than 10 calories…
  • The Difference Between Toning Muscle & Building Muscle: Woman’s Guide To Strength Training

    TaylorR
    24 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    Let’s play a quick game a Family Feud! Here’s the topic… A survey asked women why they workout. What were the top answers? Of course #1 would be “Weight Loss”. And #3 would be to “Be In Better Shape” (whether that means to have more endurance or to be stronger, I suppose it’s up to the lady). But it’s #2 that we’re going to discuss today… “Be More Toned” Women don’t want to increase muscle, they just want to tone up. Right? But what that heck does that mean and is it really just another way to say add muscle? We’re going to talk about that today! What…

    I’m not really sure where the time has gone, but somehow I turned 28 yesterday. Sometimes I wake up and think I’m still 15, and there are many times I step back in wonder at my life and where I am today. After growing up in the tiny, boring mill town of Camas, Washington, I’ve lived all over the world, including amazing places like Amsterdam, New York City, and most recently, San Francisco. After being 100% convinced for most of my life that I was not athletic and there was absolutely no hope for me in any sport, I got certified as a personal trainer, have done triathlons, learned to…

This tabata workout is perfect for when you have zero time or even as a workout finisher for those times when you still have a little extra energy at the end of your regular workout. You can also do it a couple of times in a row…

  • How Much Does Resistance Training Increase Your Metabolism?

    Cathe Friedrich
    28 Sep 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Once you pass the age of 30, your metabolism begins to slow. The four slices of pizza you used to scarf down at one time without impacting your weight begin to show up when you step on the scale. One of the main reasons metabolism slows with age is a gradual age-related decline in lean body mass. Loss of muscle can impact your metabolic health. Muscle is a “sink” that sucks up glucose. This helps with glucose control – but can resistance training increase your resting metabolic rate? Resistance Training and Metabolism In 2000, a group of researchers put resistance training…
  • 3 Factors That Boost Muscle Growth and Hypertrophy

    Cathe Friedrich
    28 Sep 2014 | 1:55 pm
    Muscles need stimulation to grow. If you don’t expose your muscles to stress, there’s no driving force for muscles to grow. Muscle tissue is remarkably adaptable. If you’re confined to bed rest for a long period of time due to illness, your muscles will atrophy and become smaller and weaker. That’s because muscles don’t need the same degree of strength and mass when they’re not bearing weight. Your body knows how to adapt to almost any situation! Muscles develop when they’re stressed and when they have the proper building blocks, amino acids, to grow.
  • Protein Absorption: How Much Protein is Making Its Way to Your Muscles?

    Cathe Friedrich
    28 Sep 2014 | 12:11 pm
    Fitness trainers are quick to tell clients to get enough protein in their diet. It’s not just bodybuilders, power athletes and fitness buffs that need more dietary protein, endurance athletes can benefit from higher protein consumption due to the stress of running or cycling long distances. During long periods of endurance exercise, protein becomes a back-up fuel source when glucose reserves run low.  More recent research shows people over the age of 65 can benefit from increasing the amount of protein in their diet. According to these studies, older people may need as much as 30% more…
  • Squat Tips: How to Get the Most Out of Squats and Avoid Injury

    Squats are the most effective exercise for shaping your legs and glutes and for building lower body strength. This compound exercise is also one of the biggest calorie burners and one of the most versatile. Once you’ve mastered the basic squat, you can incorporate squat variations into a workout to work your muscles in a slightly different way. What are the biggest mistakes people make when doing squats? Using sloppy form. Why is form so important? Good form maximizes the results you get and, even more importantly, reduces the risk of injury. Here are some tips to help you get the most…

    More consumers are demanding organic foods these days and are willing to pay extra for them. Why the interest in organic? Organic produce is grown without using synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. As a result, people perceive them to be healthier. But what about the nutrient content of produce grown organically?

There are lots of reasons to buy organic, but added nutrition isn’t necessarily one of them. Most research comparing organic to foods grown…

    Whether you're new to the world of exercise or well on your way to stardom, you'll have heard of protein supplements – particularly protein shakes. But how effective are they, and how do they work if you consume them after you exercise?Let's start by looking at the theory behind it. Resistance training – which is any exercise that involves your muscles contracting against an external resistance (things like dumbbells, your own body weight, even a bag of sand) – works by increasing the amino acid delivery to your muscles, as well as the rate of absorption. If you add extra protein after…

    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

    Being a man and only 5-8, I used to think that I had to be tall to feel powerful.  Yet, history of mankind shows that anyone one, man or woman of any height, can be powerful.  Napoleon Bonaparte was short and stood tall in the eyes of his peers as well as those he led.  He had a certain attitude that made men want to follow him.  He believed in himself. Today, I take from the lessons of all people who has shown that internal power.  Each one of us can access it.  Some easier than others.  Depending on the circumstance, it does come out. While it’s fine and dandy that we exude…
  • Apply Yourself Towards Your Goals and It’ll Become Easier

    Bob Choat
    25 Sep 2014 | 10:50 pm
    Applied effort starts out hard in most instances. Yet, the momentum that you started with increases with the amount of effort you give. Eventually, that effort becomes easier. This is a simple rule of physics and of muscular endurance. When you push a car, it is hard until motion takes place. Once the wheels turn over and the car speeds up, pushing it becomes much easier. Another example comes from an isometric exercise. Put your arms in a relaxed position by your side. Stand between a doorframe. Place the back of your hands against the doorframe and push as hard as you can for a count of…

    I’ve written a few times about mindfulness and as the year of the mindfulness revolution winds down, mindfulness itself will keep going. With the latest stats on obesity increasing, it’s time we bring mindfulness more into the mix to help stave off the worldwide issue. Most people are engaging in mindless activities which also leads to mindless eating. There was a time in most cultures and even in the United States where families were more mindful and we ate at the dinner table. What we see more of today are families that eat in front the television. There is no family talks going…

    14 Sep 2014 | 10:49 pm
    For years I’ve worked with clients who had thought that willpower would help them succeed in whatever they do.  While it does work, it’s not sustainable.  Willpower is sort of like a piece of candy that gives you that instant feel good sensation.  It may last for a bit, but it dies down not long after.  It’s the reason why we see so many people go to the gym soon after they make a New Year’s resolution only to see many of those same people drop out.  They certainly had a level of willpower at the beginning.  Willpower is like a muscle that needs to be constantly…

    With the cooler winter months now ahead, many people may start to think about switching their fitness goals around – which was geared towards fat loss during the summer – to muscle building instead for the winter.   Since you’ll be wearing more layers as you head into the winter months, if you have a few pounds of additional fat it isn’t going to be as big of a deal as during the summer when you were sporting your bathing suit.   If this is going to be your new goal, what adjustments need to be made in order to transition to it successfully?   Let’s look at the main…

    Because sometimes it might feel like you are treading water, like you are putting in the hard work and nothing has changed - but it has.Maybe you haven't checked off some elusive skill or made huge PRs with the barbell, making progress imperceptible - but over time all of those little steps add up into one huge leap.The only way to see the leap, however, is to take a look back at were you used to be. So pull up the workouts, check out the times and the weights and the scales and pat yourself on the back. You deserve it.#progress #success #fitness #Workout #ambition #getfitCrossFit Marysville

    Are you tired of spending those minutes on a treadmill or simply walking down the street? These are the most common forms of workouts that people usually get used to. Most of them also consider this to be a part of the cardio exercises that they need to perform before performing the actual workout routine. But repeating the same things everyday can be a bit boring. Performing the same kinds of workouts everyday also makes the body get used to it and thus you may not be able to see the expected results. Once the body gets used to a routine, you will see less results and this will be a reason…

I would rather lay on my couch with a soft blanket. But I just know that it’s even more important to work out on these days. When it’s grey outside we are often in a bad mood or even depressed. It’s proven that working out helps against that. I can tell you from my own experience that I always feel better and happier after a workout, no matter how bad I felt before.

In a recent visit to a morning zoo radio show, Jay Cuter asserts his dominance by beating everyone in a tug of war and making it look easy. He only needs to use one hand to handily beat the flabby host (Who’s name is probably Scooter or The Barracuda or something), and then JC manages to win against six other…

Having a strong and muscular back is also a good sign that you actually lift.  Those who only train what they can see may have an impressive chest but when you look at them from the side, their posterior chain…

    Every day, I ask every one of my clients to rate themselves on how well they ate on a scale from 1–10, with 10 being excellent. If you’re eating donuts, you are closer to a 1. Why do I do this? My clients are the ones responsible for what they put into their mouths during the 23 hours that I am not around. It’s all about accountability, and the more natural it becomes, the easier it is to eat what’s best for their bodies the majority of the time. Now let’s talk about you. How well do you eat?

    I’m all aboard the organic train and try to eat only the freshest, highest quality, cleanest foods. However, like many of you, I don’t like to feel like my entire paycheck is going to fruits, vegetables and a trip to Whole Foods. Inevitably, a great portion of my resources — time and money — goes toward eating well and educating others on the importance of good nutrition and clean eating. On the flip side, I don’t want to be one of those annoying food people. You know the ones. You’ve been to dinner parties with them. Or overheard the conversations at the beach, in your local yoga…
  • Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

    How much food should you be eating? Or in other words, how many calories should you be taking in to drop pounds? Folks trying to lose weight are looking for the answer to these questions and using food labels, calorie calculators and point systems, as well as stocking up on food scales and measuring cups to count every last morsel of food that crosses their lips and dutifully log it in their food journals. Does this sound familiar? You keep hitting or staying under your calorie goal magically determined by your smartphone app, but your stomach is screaming a constant and genuine “Please…

    By Dr. David Brancato, PhD, ND, CPT The relationship between diet and well being dates back as early as 400 BC and is found in the principles established by Hippocrates. I believe personal performance is correlated to cell nutrition.  Proper nutrition is not only based on choice of correct foods, but how they are combined.  The improper combination of food groups will surround the cell with toxins rather than nutrients. This leads to weakness and disease, exhibited first in the athlete by poor performance. Indigestion of food occurs in the absence of digestive juices.  Indigestion causes…

    Many people who turn to exercise to lose fat do so with a burst of enthusiasm that tapers off rapidly when results are not as fast as they would expect, when discomfort is greater than anticipated, or when they perceive a time commitment  to be longer than first expected. Fortunately, low intensity is the way to go for beginning clients whose main goal is fat reduction, and it can be done just about every day! Few things are as off-putting as the sense of failure when first attempting something. A natural tendency is to add more intensity to the effort (ever try smacking an appliance in an…

September is National Aging Awareness month, an observance aimed at focusing attention on the positive aspects of growing older.1 And one of the most positive aspects of growing older is being able to stay in shape to enjoy our longevity. Physical strength and flexibility begin to decline with age, but exercise can help counter those losses. And perhaps best of all, one can start to get in better shape at any age. No matter what our age, a stronger person is…

    “Autumn, the year’s last loveliest smile…” As Google Home Page reminded us last week, the autumnal equinox turns summer into fall. Sun or rain, the first leaves start to become red and yellow and we can taste autumn foods, like oranges and chestnuts on our desks. I have always thought about autumn as a sleepy season, where relaxation comes just right before winter with its celebrations like Christmas. Calm and quietness characterize this time of the year even if it’s the season where all activities start again after the summer break. Sometimes it could be hard to practice all these…

    Smolov Jr. Squat And Bench ProgramSmolov Jr is a powerful, three week fitness program based on the Russian Smolov routine, but tailored to be less strenuous and more versatile. After this three week routine, many lifters report a significant increase in their lifting capacity—as much as 35 lbs for their dead lift and 25 lbs for their bench press! The workout can be based around the same squat as its big brother, or can be translated to the bench press, and though it is not as intense as the Smolov proper, it is still a high intensity, high volume, and high frequency workout.

    By Dr. Mercola If you want to alter your body composition, you cannot overlook exercise. However, some forms of exercise are clearly more effective than others in this regard. Most people who exercise are still focusing on slow endurance-type exercises, such as running on a treadmill, which is not only time consuming but ineffective as well—especially for weight loss. When it comes to shedding unwanted pounds and reworking your fat-to-muscle ratio, high intensity interval training (HIIT) combined with intermittent fasting is a winning combination that I don't think can be beat.

Nocturia is more than just a nuisance; it interferes with quality sleep, leaving you irritable, fatigued, and at risk of the myriad of health problems related to insufficient sleep.

In short, the more time you spend sitting, the shorter and less healthy your life will tend to be. In fact, there are now over 10,000 studies showing that chronic sitting—at work, commuting, and watching TV at night—significantly impacts your cardiovascular and metabolic function.

Initially, BMI was primarily a tool used by insurance companies to set premiums (people with BMIs in the "obese" category may pay 22 percent more for their insurance compared to those in the "normal" category2).

When I was overweight the insults were many, the unwanted weight loss advice came in abundance, and there were plenty of folks ready and willing to monitor my every bite of food and shake their head in disapproval if I dare go for seconds. The solution to this problem in my mind was to lose all the weight and by doing so I would silence the critics, but I was very wrong. It took me years to achieve my…

You know what isn't hard? Eating right.  I get a ton of questions about how to do it. What do I eat? If I cut this piece of pizza into smaller pieces, does that count? What if I chew really fast? Does that cancel out the calories? It does. Right? No. No it does not. In a culture where there is a fascination with "eating clean", it would probably help to know what the hell that means.  Below are a…

On stellar running days, you laugh and proclaim how much you love it…but towards the end of marathon training you take an extra beat before muttering something about a runner’s high. After all we can’t admit to non-runners any potential misgivings about our decisions to run 26.2 miles, lest we give them any reason not to join our league of crazy.

    Sean Hogan

    Flexibility development is not only for many sports men and women but also for our children and youth a neglected component of fitness. This may be because of the seeming lack of applicability of flexibility to performance in team sports and awareness of the relevance of flexibility to better fitness and mobility in general. Whereas a Gymnast and dancer can see the immediate benefits of excellent flexibility as it is a key component in their relative activities, the game player’s need for good flexibility is less obvious. Also, a lack of flexibility can contribute to many of the hypokinetic…

    Bob
    1 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    One of the biggest reasons (or excuses) people use for not working out as often as they should is that they don’t have the time. In reality, if you take a good hard look at your schedule and daily routine—and cut out some of the biggest time wasters—almost everyone has enough room in their life to fit exercise into the mix. This doesn’t mean it will be easy to accommodate this extra activity into your daily agenda, though. These days, we are all busy juggling work, family, social activities, hobbies and other obligations that monopolize our time. To make things worse, many of us are…
  • Healthy Recipe: Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

    29 Sep 2014 | 9:10 am
    If you love delicious snacks, you’re in luck. Dessert doesn’t have to sabotage your efforts to be healthy. There are ways to enjoy dessert without killing your diet. As this recipe for peach & blueberry cobbler (courtesy of Eating Well) shows, one smart strategy is to substitute canola oil in place of butter, and use whole wheat flour instead of the all-purpose version. You can also make alternative versions using other types of fruit instead if you prefer. This tasty treat has around 180 calories per serving, and 8 g of fat. Ingredients: 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 tablespoons…
  • How Ab Equipment Can Help You Lose Weight

    Bob
    26 Sep 2014 | 8:55 am
    The stomach region is one of the most common “problem areas” for people who are trying to lose weight. Belly fat (even if you only have a little bit) can be frustrating and embarrassing, and can also be among the most stubborn type of fat to try and shed. Many people have spent long hours doing crunches or other exercises only to be continually disappointed with the results (or lack thereof). This is exactly why ab equipment was invented. This type of fitness equipment is intended to help you zero in on that specific area, so you can help achieve your goal of better abs. Any type of…
  • Gym Equipment Safety in the Home

    Bob
    24 Sep 2014 | 9:15 am
    Gym equipment is a fundamental staple of a healthy lifestyle routine for many people. However, this equipment won’t necessarily be all that great for your well-being if you don’t use it correctly. In fact, if you don’t practice proper safety techniques and habits, this equipment can actually be very hazardous to your health. One advantage of having fitness equipment at home is that you know who is using it. So you can enforce proper safety and maintenance rules, and ensure that everyone knows how to use, store and maintain the equipment properly. It’s a good idea to get into the habit…
  • Workout Tip: Keep Shaking Things Up

    Bob
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:01 am
    If you want to get the maximum impact from your exercise time, you need to be careful to avoid falling into a workout rut. This is when you automatically just keep doing the same exact routine each time, without any deviation from your established pattern. While you may think it’s more efficient to just follow an established routine and stick with what (apparently) works, in reality you may be hampering your own efforts. It’s important to switch up the routine frequently—in other words, to keep your body guessing. If you do the same routine in an exact sequence over and over, your…

    Today I'm headed off to Chicago. By car. It's a 12 hour drive for me, and that doesn't include construction, traffic, or stopping for gas. 12+ hours is a long time to sit in a car and sitting for prolonged periods of time can make your body stiff and sore.

And some people will tell you they've never seen me awake before noon. It's better for my health if I'm up in the morning, but I'm naturally a night owl.

  • Finding your perfect yoga mat

    24 Sep 2014 | 11:08 pm
    Yoga mats that properly support your body and practice are essential to grow in yoga. Yoga mats prevent and decrease injuries that can be caused by slippery surfaces. Yoga mats are used by anyone practicing yoga to help them create a barrier between themselves and the floor. Many students will let you borrow a mat to use during your classes, but I don't recommend going this route. You don't know for sure how clean a mat is until you clean it yourself. To keep your mat clean, there are a lot of yoga mat cleaning supplies on the market. (I make my own out of ACV, witch hazel, lavender, and tea…

Here is how I dealt with it: Found a friend with the same problem. Made a bet. Our bet is an 8 week challenge and is quite simple, don’t eat crap!

There is frequently a stigma against runners that we are all ultra-marathoners who eat newbies for breakfast.  This is absolutely not the case for all runners, I swear.  Sometimes we eat veteran runners for dessert.  But in all truth, no matter the level of runner you are, out on the road we are all an incredibly welcoming bunch of…
