    When I was in my dieting heyday, I was obsessed with all-things weight loss. I counted calories religiously, weighed myself daily, and, honestly, 87 percent of my thoughts were about food and my body. It was exhausting, and you want to know the worst part? My results were negligible. It seemed like I was always taking one step forward and two steps backward — and did I mention that I was starving all the time? I finally reached the point where I had to get real with myself and ask some serious questions: “Girl, what are you doing? This is no way to live. It’s not fun nor is it…
  • One Often Overlooked Key To Improving Your Fitness

    If you’re struggling with your fitness practice, you’re probably asking yourself one of these questions, too: What actually needs to go into moving your fitness practice forward? How do you actually ‘get better’ at something? When does ‘proficiency’ set in? To answer this, I grabbed my camera and headed outside to film this short video for you. In it, I discuss one element that needs to be at the core of your training, and what childhood mathematics can teach you about it. Give it a watch and then tell me what you think: “How does repetition and novelty factor fit in to the…

    Even when trying to focus on a full body workout, there are a few areas that many people overlook as part of their exercise routine. We’re talking about the hands and wrists. It is easy to underestimate the importance of these areas, and it is common for people to neglect them in favor of focusing on more prominent areas such as the abs and legs. However, developing strength in the hands, wrists and fingers is important to ensure you perform at your peak for an assortment of exercise activities. This is especially critical for those engaged in weight training. Building strength in these…

  • Build Your Own Workout Plan

    27 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    You’ve heard it from your mom, your high school teacher, your financial adviser: Failing to plan is planning to fail. Another domain where this bit of time-honored wisdom holds sway? Your fitness regimen. Too often, we lean on a few basic go-to workouts — elliptical for 30 minutes, weights for an hour, or X number of laps in the pool — shuffling through them, habitually or at random, each time we hit the gym. While it’s certainly better than no exercise at all, this repetitive, improvised approach is far from optimal, says DeWayne Unger, a Washington-based master trainer certified by…

    High-intensity resistance training is all the rage these days. Once the rarefied domain of boutique studios and CrossFit gyms, it has now made its way into the mainstream, showing up in local health clubs across the country. And for good reason. These workouts work. Characterized by interval-training rhythms and “functional fitness” movements, they are famed for transforming bodies.

    A few months ago this image made the rounds on social media: Image created by Sweatpants & Coffee. I want the sweatshirt. The picture & its text brought to mind when I taught playground yoga in Oakland to wiggly second graders. It reminded me how the kids struggled to be still (they were monkey mind incarnate in the most fantastic of ways). It sparked me to recall a child who stopped me after our morning moments and asked: What exactly does namaste mean? Why do we say it? I knew the child was Jewish so I compared the word to Shalom by way of versatility. I explained it meant,…

    Please welcome Tara AKA Mutt the Custard. She’s here at my request as I love her take on the silly side of weight loss… I have black lab named Diesel. I wore a Fitbit for a couple of years and always checked to see how many steps I have done after walking the dog in the morning. It’s usually around 7000/3.5miles and my goal of course is to do at least 10000 a day. All of this started me thinking: and I just started thinking: Wouldn’t it be funny to know how many steps my dog did?? Diesel runs here there and everywhere so I imagined he would rack up the steps quickly.

    This post has rattled around in my head for a while.  It crystallized recently as we edge toward book release and I’m repeatedly shoved from my zone of comfy. And finding it exhausting. Once upon a time, I was chatting with the Foodie McBody pictured below, when she remarked: You know, people say you’re like a ninja. I pressed her to explain. I wondered if my self-appointed moniker of self-esteem ninja had taken off? She clarified it was the way I’d be “intensely mingling,” seemingly spontaneously vanish, & *poof* reappear as quickly as Id left. I…

    There’s been discussion recently about a photographer who, according to the articles, is teaching her daughters Strong is The New Pretty. As the story goes, Kate Parker was prepping for a gallery show when she realized all her strongest images were of her daughters. Her daughters simply being themselves. Brave, dirty, confident, messy, strong. Thanks to having a mom who encouraged them in sports and what used to be seen as boy-type play (hello grit, determination & mud puddles) these photos perfectly captured the message Kate wanted to send: They (and in turn we as exhibition…

When I saw Carla’s post confessing how she’s judged others before walking in their shoes, it made me think about how I judge others.

    Back at blogging! Exercise and healthy eating habits have become something that I have made part of my life, with a healthy mindset as well. Although I am not perfect I always am mindful of eating wholesome meals and being active. What works for me As far as exercise, 30 minute workouts are my preferred max time. I can’t work out more than that, and honestly there is just too much going on in the day.

    One win this morning was that I got up to workout like I had planned to. I was so happy I got it done and it was out of the way for the day. Before I even got to work two things happened that I wasn’t too happy about: My crown fell out as I was flossing, resulting in a gap in between my teeth! My 3 year old didn’t want me to leave him at all, causing him to act hysterical as I left him with his grandparents for the day. Also, before that he was crying so much it caused his nose to start bleeding. Happy Monday! Not really. Fried egg cooked in coconut oil, chicken apple sausages…

I feel like this is the year I want to make fitness and health a priority for myself and my family. I also feel that this year I want to grow more in my career and work on something that I can build upon for myself as well. I also want to expand my network of people I know and be someone that is inspiring to them. That’s it for now. I am looking forward to what this year will offer!

    I have 2 boys. One soon to be 9 month old and a 3 1/2 year old. So you could imagine that I have my hands full. And they truly are. They keep me busy. Just when I think I could take a break to do something, one of them pops that bubble of that thought. Considering that we had our first sleepover here at our new place, and my oldest and my nephew were playing until 1 AM, I didn’t get a full night’s sleep. This morning, I made breakfast and I definitely enjoy cooking on Saturdays. I don’t know what it is about Saturdays that make me crave pancakes, but I decided to make them.

It serves as the base from which I slowly built and settled on the recipe below: Post-Workout Protein Shake Recipe 1 small banana 1 cup frozen blueberries 1-1.5 cups water 1 tsp flax seeds 1 tsp chia seeds 0.5 tsp cinnamon 1 tbsp peanut butter 1 serving vanilla whey protein (usually 30g) Each ingredient has its purpose.

    What is the difference between yoga and pilates? Is what I hear from my clients from time to time. Since I mostly focus on weight-training and a variety of HIIT programs, some of my clients explore other types of fitness disciplines to compliment the strength training they’re already doing with me. In addition to asking about the difference between yoga and pilates, they’re also curious about which one if right for them? What each one involves? What each one works? What kind benefits should one expect? Difference Between Yoga and Pilates Personally, yoga or pilates are not my…

    PUSH fitness tracker is unlike any fitness tracker out there. It doesn’t count your steps, your activity or calories. Instead it keeps track of your movements during strength training exercises and provides instant feedback. By tracking power and velocity it essentially measures how hard you work at the gym. How is PUSH Fitness Tracker Different from other wearables? This question needs to be addressed right away because I hear it all the time on Twitter, Facebook and at watercoolers. Even other websites that review tech and wearbales tend to lump PUSH with consumer level general…
  • 5 Christmas Gift Ideas for Personal Trainers – 2014 Edition

    This is my third year of writing a blog post on Christmas gift ideas for personal trainers. If you’d like to see what I recommended previously check out this post from 2012 and one from last year. HIIT and Interval Timers Making a return this year are interval timers. High Intensity Interval Training is still popular because of it’s effectiveness so a good timer helps keep pace with a workout. The two I’d highly recommend are Gymboss, which attaches to a belt like a pager or an app SecondsPro that needs a smartphone.  SecondsPro is my referred app when I work with clients.

    If I had a top ten list of influential people who I felt used their status to prey upon a trusting public, both Dr. Oz and Deepak Chopra would at least be shortlisted for membership. And yet, it would seem, they're my collaborators. You see the three of us are members of the Council of Directors of the GLiMMER Initiative, a project spearheaded by Dr. David Katz. Now if there's guilt by association I take it there'll also be merit by association and I'll be standing alongside some of nutrition's true luminaries, but given the Council is so large it needs 3 separate links to explore its 150…

I'm pretty sure they'd get some flak for that, and probably some directly from the American Lung Association (ALA). Coming from the American Lung Association however, it'd be rather hypocritical flak.

    Oh boy do I have some good news for you!! Watch my segment above and you will learn that a little dark chocolate can actually HELP you lose weight! The catch: Applys only to chocolate 70% dark or higher (ideally 80%) 40g per day max which about four Lindt Choc squares (see video for an example, it’s actually quite a lot). The rest of your diet has to be low calorie, and you need to exercise. Tips for eating chocolate guilt free: Follow the above three points!

I just searched the blog for my yearly *cringe* "surgiversary" updates and it appears it really was.  "Best."  I maintained a nearly-normal bodyweight for half of the year, guys.  If I look back on my averages over the last ten years, the weight is smack-dab in the middle of average.  I am just that.   Super-average.   I started out the year at my near lowest, while using the gym and eating decently.  My goal had been to continue that - and ignore…

Oh, and Judy Barnes Baker’s wonderful book Nourished, which is filled with absolutely delicious low-carb recipes.  Judy’s is one of our favorite low-carb cookbooks. I plan on purchasing all these…

      Dr. Dean Ornish strikes again with an editorial lambasting what he calls high-protein diets in today’s New York Times. I got an email first thing this morning from a South African journalist inquiring as to what I thought about it. Monday mornings are killers for me, so I thought I would jot off a quick response and be done with it. Forty-five minutes later I was still writing. So, I figured I would at least post what I wrote to her here so all could read it. As seems to be typical, Dr. Ornish’s stance is argued using half truths, obfuscations and all the other slippery tricks in…

The first debunked the idea that saturated fat and cholesterol are bad for your health and included and interview with yours truly. The second, which really got the mainstream docs riled, showed a different perspective on statins. It got the statinators so worked up that they mounted a campaign – fueled with drug money, I would guess – that ended up making the network remove the show from its website. Now, Dr. Maryanne Demasi has done the…

Quite a bummer for those who liked the convenience of working out at home. There are still alternatives out there with the emergence of fitness companies adding streaming fitness videos to their services. There are some pretty good options, some…

This is especially true if you don't have a lot of room in your home. Treadmills and other cardio machines are often a waste of space.

    The 2015 Boston Marathon was a return to glory in many ways, and a welcome one at that. For the first time in two years, the chatter among the chilly 26,000+ runners in the starting area tents returned to the familiar topics of weather strategies, expected PR’s, and life journeys to this moment, and no longer of survivors, redemption, or douchebag terrorists facing the death penalty. Those stories are now just historic footnotes in a race that has already survived 119 years, and shows no signs of stopping (tip o’ the hat to bomb survivors toeing the line at the Boston Marathon).

    Let’s face it: much of the food that we eat is crap. One reason for this is it’s hard to figure out what is in our food. We rely on food labeling for guidance in making better nutritional decisions. Food nutrition labels play a major role in choosing products to take off the shelves, place into our grocery cart, and then put into our body. These labels have been the subject of battles between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the food industry, and consumer advocates. And what these battles have produced is a mumbo-jumbo of micronutrient percentages, calories, and confusing…

You may very well respond, “Well, duh! Of course. The kitchen is where the food is! You want to lose weight, stay the heck out of your kitchen.” But it’s not that simple. For one thing, meals produced in your kitchen tend to be healthier, more nutritious, and lower in calories than meals produced commercially, especially those from establishments with drive-thru service.

Some forms of yoga place more emphasis on physical postures and stretching or flexibility, others on breathing or meditation. Other forms of yoga include faster-moving series of movements. Studies on yoga and its healthy benefits are often small short-term, and without clear comparison groups, so for now conclusions are tentative, but early research is promising.

    Omega vert juicer is a late comer to Omega masticating juicer family. The original masticating juicers had for the most part a horizontal configurations that made them impractical for smaller counter space. Omega vertical juicers take less counter space. They also have some upgrades that impacts what you could juice. Juicing is extraction of liquids from solids.

In small amounts, stress can be beneficial, helping to motivate you to overcome challenges and reach your goals. Stress is also part of the body’s warning system that produces the fight-or-flight response. Chronic stress is very different from the sense of pressure you feel to finish an assignment or get to work on time, and it can actually wreak havoc on your body. 43% of adults are believed to be suffering adverse health consequences from stress, and up to 90% of all…

    If you’ve cooked fish wrapped in parchment paper before, which gently steams the fish and keeps the flesh moist, this recipe will make total sense. But in this case, instead of parchment, the wrapper is edible, nutritious and delicious. Nori, a sea vegetable best known as a wrap for sushi, can also be used to wrap fish while it’s cooking. The nori seals in moisture, keeping the fish juicy and flavorful. This meal is all about moist, tender salmon. When arranged on a plate of sautéed mustard greens and shiitake mushrooms it looks like a rather fancy feast, but there’s no need to be…

In my job, I act as a cheerleader, of sorts, in order to get patients to move so that they do not lose function. In my life, I found I needed a cheerleader or guide so that I too could accomplish goals. I'm actually pretty good at the practicalities of life: I am able to feed myself, clothe myself, work a job and pay my bills. But living life is about more than surviving.

    First there were articles about the importance of Vitamin D for building healthy bones. Then later articles drew a link between Vitamin D deficiency and age-related decline. Now there seems to be a link between low Vitamin D levels and depression in healthy individuals. The connection between sunlight exposure and production of Vitamin D is well documented. During winter months, especially in northern latitudes, sun exposure is decreased and often associated with seasonal affective disorder (SAD). So the it's easy to jump to conclusions that this explains the relationship. However, in this…

Because it is usually not caused by hereditary or ancestral influences, the cause of low self-esteem can be treated by removing it from the picture.Most psychologists agree that when people have a critical or negative view of themselves, the cause is usually environmental.So you simply remove the environment that is causing a low self-image and healthy self-esteem begins to blossom.

    Since I can’t get my sons, the hubs, or oldest daughter to cooperate with pictures, I’m happily loading up on pics of my granddaughter, Greedy Baby and my lovely cousin today! First up is the granddaughter. She’s 7 months old now and no longer whiney. Hallelujah! The child has the cutest fat rolls on her legs I’ve ever seen. She’s all cushy & squeezy ‘n stuff and I love her. I’m babysitting this weekend, but I’ve requested that the child poop before she gets to my house. The poopy diaper part I’m not excited about. GAH!

    Many people feel they don’t have time to eat right because of their busy lives. “I don’t have time” is a common phrase these days. When it comes time to work out, or eat better, or make dinner (or breakfast or lunch), or track calories, it’s easily to write yourself off as having too much […]

    If you've ever talked to a politically-correct, mainstream nutritionist or dietician, it can be really frustrating. Eat lots of whole-wheat bread, never lose more than half-a-pound a week, and "make sure to eat lots of soy, grains, corn, and dairy," they'll say. But that is BAD advice.  The TRUTH is that you have to break a LOT of nutrition rules if you want to lose weight.

    I don’t know if my mom has ever failed to tell me I was beautiful when she’s around. I can’t count how many times she’s walked by, stopped, smiled and then said: “How did I have such a beautiful daughter?” My response?

I love that so many clients lately have been asking for more shoulder targeted moves (normally it’s abs).

But shoulders… it’s pretty easy to tone those babies up. It’s an area where not a lot of fat tends to build up for most women,…

    James Clear

    You might assume that humans buy products because of what they are, but the truth is that we often buy things because of where they are. For example, items on store shelves that are at eye level tend to be purchased more than items on less visible shelves. In the best-selling book Nudge (Kindle | Audiobook), authors Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein explain a variety of ways that our everyday decisions are shaped by the world around us. The effect that eye-level shelves have on our purchase habits is just one example. Here’s another: The ends of aisles are money-making machines for…

Moreover, Abbotsford was still a relatively small suburb back then, tucked away in the shadow of nearby Vancouver where most of the big business deals were being made. The first popular email services like AOL and Hotmail wouldn’t arrive for another two or three years. Geography still played a large role in business success and Abbotsford wasn’t exactly the home of blockbuster deals. And yet, despite his…

To help you stay on trend, I collected some great blue accessories that are sure to be stunners for the season. First, let’s talk earrings. Feathers are all the rage this year.

Eden’s core belief is that diversity and imperfections are not flaws to be corrected but traits to be celebrated.

    My feet balanced on two little stubs that protruded from the inverted wall. Looking to secure myself, I clenched my fingers on the parts of the wall that stuck out far enough to make use of. My eyes looked up to find the next hand hold… And that’s when the sinking feeling really set in. I could see the next hold. It was all that stood between me and the last meter of this bouldering route. But I had no idea how to re-position my body to reach it. And that’s when I let go. Going up! I dropped the four and a half meters to the mats below. A guy attempting the same route as me took his…

    If you’re struggling with your fitness practice, you’re probably asking yourself one of these questions, too: What actually needs to go into moving your fitness practice forward? How do you actually ‘get better’ at something? When does ‘proficiency’ set in? To answer this, I grabbed my camera and headed outside to film this short video for you. In it, I discuss one element that needs to be at the core of your training, and what childhood mathematics can teach you about it.

    Neck pain sucks. I wearily dug my hand into my shoulder yet again, trying in vain to release the tension that had been settling there for the last hour. Neck pain and I were besties. We’d been that way for a while. I didn’t appreciate the friendship – anyone whose neck gets knotted up knows just how poor this kind of ‘friendship’ is. Until five years ago, when the pain stopped. There were two elements I brought into my life at that time, which were simple enough to do and netted surprisingly good results.

    Since 2002, one of the most common complaints I’ve gotten from private clients is that they’re suffering from glute pain. This glute pain manifests itself in all sorts of ways. It can flare up when walking, creating deep stabbing pains when sitting, or even sabotage you mid-workout as you try to get through the next rep. After having done a little searching around online, and reading through articles online, more often than not, fingers are pointed at one single muscle: The Piriformis.   The Piriformis – Cause Of Your Glute Pain?

Back when I was rowing on the college crew team, we ran a lot, mostly stairs. On our worst days, we’d shuffle up an outdoor staircase so long that the top was obscured by a tunnel of green, leafy trees. Then, we’d wobble down a hill on the other side that was so steep it verged on being a cliff. They called these doozies “up and overs” and one was never enough. At a minimum, we did 10 at a time.

But what does “good posture” even mean?  Usually when we talk about posture, we’re referring to a static “pose,” but you’re not a stationary being.  You have to be able to bend, move, twist and function in the world. Before you can start to fix your bad posture, you’ve got to know what good posture looks like.  And I’ve got a hint for you…it’s about much more…

Myth 1: Interval training is Extreme Too often I hear people say that interval training requires working really hard, pushing yourself to extremes.

Yes, when you are training, depending on the intensity and duration of the work you are doing, you are using a specific energy system. The result is what you’d expect from your training – development of strength, speed, stamina, weight loss, and muscle mass.

    Editor Note: It’s typical of a newbie to plan too far with regards to their weight loss program and end up under-eating (consuming much less calories than necessary to lose fat). I was one of those newbies. Once that newbie reaches their desired weight and decides to revisit their old eating habits as they appear to be healthier now, they gain all that weight right back. The ultimate goal when cutting is to reach the “ideal weight” and maintain it. My advice is not to aim for weight but to aim for fat loss alone, which is for the most part observed visually (BMI calculators…

  • Dreams to Reality: How to Escape the Time Crunch

    After reading 168 Hours and keeping my time journal for three weeks, I committed to do three things: Complete my 100 Dreams list. Review my core competencies. Stop multi-tasking. The goal of these efforts is to try to escape “the time crunch”. I would love to report that I have done so but I can’t. I still feel like there are never quite enough hours in a day. I do feel like I am getting a bit more out of those hours. As I’ve worked on these three goals I’ve learned a few things . To say yes to your dreams you have to learn to say NO first. The goal of writing down 100 Dreams is…

    20 Apr 2015 | 9:08 am
    I love to travel. I love it almost as much as I do coming home. I love to explore new places and try new foods, but I also crave coming home to hard-boiled egg whites and Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. I look forward to each trip (they never seem to be more than a few months apart) but upon return I hit the ground ready to get back to my clients and my routine. Navigating this last trip to Phoenix was particularly challenging. It was my first trip with my mother and my husband, who move at vastly different speeds. It was a trip for fun (more to come about the side trip to the Grand Canyon) and for work…

    You’ve probably seen the headlines: Sitting is the New Smoking Your Chair Is Killing You The Most Dangerous Thing You Do All Day… Yes, our sedentary lifestyle may be Public Health Enemy #1. At the ACSM Health & Fitness Summit I had the pleasure of listening to an engaging presentation on this subject from Dr. James Levine. The noted scholar and author reviewed the data around something called NEAT and obesity. NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) appears to be the overlooked piece in the great obesity debate. In fitness the focus is often on the workout. Government guidelines…

    Dr. J
    24 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Let’s face it: much of the food that we eat is crap. One reason for this is it’s hard to figure out what is in our food. We rely on food labeling for guidance in making better nutritional decisions. Food nutrition labels play a major role in choosing products to take off the shelves, place into our grocery cart, and then put into our body. These labels have been the subject of battles between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the food industry, and consumer advocates. And what these battles have produced is a mumbo-jumbo of micronutrient percentages, calories, and confusing…

Take the relatively new social activity of texting. It’s bad enough that many people text while driving, endangering themselves and others.

I can’t think of a better way to begin this than by attending the 2015 Cedar Key Art Festival at my favorite seaside fishing village, Cedar Key! Cedar Key is a cluster of islands off the north central west coast of Florida. It was named for the Eastern Red Cedar which is common in the area. Arrowheads and spear points have been found there dating as far back as the Paleolithic period, around 12,000 years ago. Old Rough…

Warning: graphic violence ahead:If you can’t handle the truth don’t read any further.

    1981 Sony Walkman advertisement Does all the fitness technology used today help us or hurt us? When I first started running, I used a primitive Walkman and headphones to listen to music. That didn’t last long. Between the Florida rains and my sweat, the headphones rusted, and I figuratively tossed that gadget to the curb and never looked back. So, yeah, I admit it, for a while Eye of the Tiger played in my head when I ran. But soon my mind moved on to better applications of its gray and white matter, and now I believe in being completely unplugged, especially during outdoor walking,…

    Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very close to the acidity level of battery acid and consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners. It’s cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean water. Coke uses “public relations propaganda” to convince consumers and entire nations that it is an “environmental company” when…

    Addicted to sugar? You’re not alone! Millions of people have developed an addiction for sweets. Studies have found that sugar can be just as addictive as cocaine or tobacco. Beating the sugar demon is tough especially because it’s in so many foods that you wouldn’t even consider.  I’m gonna be honest with you, it will probably be one of the hardest things you’ve ever done. The key to success is to stay committed to your goals and find the best strategies for avoiding temptation. Sorry for pointing out the obvious. Eating sweets and desserts makes you crave more…

    I freaking love the Avengers. If you’re reading this site, chances are you do too, and you’re probably freaking out with excitement for the release of Age of Ultron. There’s something just inherently badass about taking a posse of amazing characters who have lead their own films and comics, and bringing them all together to take on an even greater challenge no one Avenger could defeat alone. Whether they’re facing an invading alien race, or artificial intelligence gone rogue, these heroes need to find a way to work together and become greater than the sum of their…
  • Want to Crush Your Inner Demons? Use the Skywalker Strategy!

    Steve
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:40 am
    In most fantasy or sci-fi movies, there’s a big epic battle between the forces of good and evil. However, before that battle can happen, an even more important battle must take place: between the ears of the protagonist. Oftentimes our hero or heroine has an inner demon to slay before he or she can go slay the dragon/save the princess/galaxy/world. There’s probably no more famous nerdy example than Luke Skywalker in the Cave on Dagobah: A few other great examples: Link having to literally battle himself in the water temple of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.  Neo finally…

    I want you to meet Maya, known as StarsApart on the NF Boards, a proud member of the Rebellion and one heck of a success story. Like many folks, Maya was fairly fit her teens and early twenties, but when she entered grad school, that all fell apart. She graduated completely out of shape, and the weight piled up: 30 lbs, 40, 50, and beyond. Maya got stuck in a cycle, and for years let a poor diet add pounds to her waistline. She was in a place in her life where she wasn’t happy with herself or her situation and had spent a year doing hours upon hours of cardio only to see no results.

    The Glowing Edge

  • When You Have a Bad First Sparring Experience

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    7 Apr 2015 | 6:44 am
    Sparring is NOT boxing for fitness. When you get in that ring, everything changes. It’s not like drills, it’s not like working the heavy bag, it’s not like padwork. Sparring is radically different. Someone is trying to punch you in the face, and when you’re new to it, this can be not only terrifyingly alien, it can be downright demoralizing. Here’s an email I received recently about exactly that: I love The Glowing Edge, and it has been an invaluable resource to me as I begin to take the sport more seriously. I wanted to write to get your take on beginning to…
  • 8 Rules of Amateur Boxing You Didn’t Know

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    9 Dec 2014 | 5:30 am
    So you think you know the rules of amateur boxing? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Take a look at some of the most common mistakes I see and experience (and sometimes make, myself) on a regular basis. 1. It’s not called a fight (Although I call it that sometimes.) Only professional fights are called fights. In order to distinguish between pro and amateur events, the amateur events are called bouts or matches. You might hear me say it here on my personal private little cave, but when I’m in my black and whites you’ll never hear me slip. I might accidentally say it, but…

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    2 Dec 2014 | 6:37 am
      How many rounds of sparring should you have before you enter your first amateur boxing competition? I love this question, and coaches enjoy arguing about it. We’re naturally argumentative. We’ll punch you, if needed. Seriously. If you make the transition from boxing fitness to sparring, you’re almost always going to be asking yourself the question “Should I compete?” And if you decide to compete, how do you know when you’re ready? Is there a physical bar? Is it about conditioning, or skills? Or is it primarily mental? A mix of both? One view: Get in…
  • How to Wrap Your Hands for Boxing Competition

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    13 Nov 2014 | 9:49 am
    When you’re training for boxing, you’ll probably wear regular boxing wraps or gel gloves underneath your boxing gloves for protection and support. When you compete under the USA Boxing sanction, the rules on what you can use to wrap your hands, and how you must wrap them, are very specific. Ringside did a particularly good video on this, and it’s well worth watching the entire 16 minute video (and there’s a funny treat at the end). It’s worth mentioning that they got the rules wrong about one thing. According to the most recent Competition Rulebook, which took…
  • How Amateur Boxing Matches are REALLY Made

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:14 pm
    Getting a good amateur boxing match together is never, ever a blissfully effortless ride on the pugilistic merry-go-round. It’s the most complex, chaotic, and frequently emotional mess you ever did see. If all you ever do is show up to enjoy a local fight night it might look smooth, from the outside. But it absolutely isn’t. For the 4 to 6 hours prior to the doors opening at the average amateur boxing evening, there is more anarchy and disarray than a high school cafeteria lunch period on homecoming Friday with no teachers. (Sorry, did I just give you a flashback?) Here’s…

    Many of us spend most of our day either sitting in an office with piped in light and piped in air looking at a computer screen. This leaves us very little time to enjoy what is around us outside.In a 2009 study in Holland it was found that people that lived within 1 km of a park or wooded area had less depression and anxiety. Whereas those who lived further away had more symptoms of anxiety and depression. Being outside in natural settings has a recharging effect on our entire being.This is being recognized my many urban developers and has led to areas in cities called “green space”.So…

That’s approximately 30% of my overall caloric intake of protein. A lot of people i have shared that with have gasped at that number. I am not going to lie and say it has been easy to do — it hasn’t and except for one day, I haven’t reached 140 grams daily.  For the first few days, I added in a whey protein shake which…

    There seems to be a crusade in the fitness industry against moderate-effort, steady state cardio. Most of these anti-cardio fitness "experts" claim that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is superior to steady state cardio for every person in the world, regardless of his or her fitness goals, current health, training history, injury history, body size, and body composition. Why does this have to be a black and white issue? Any activity or exercise has an appropriate time and a place. Why do we have to think of cardio as high intensity OR steady state?

Some swear by training first thing in the morning to start their day on the right foot with a good workout, a small number squeeze in their workouts around lunchtime while most tend to train after work in the late afternoon/early evening or at night. The question remains however, when is the best time to train and does the time that you train really make that much of a difference in the grand scheme of things?

    Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens have moved on, their names cleared. The cloud of steroids remains over baseball and all sports. Dugouts no longer are filled with bulked-up players with swollen skulls and Popeye-like arms. Bodies deflated after testing for performance-enhancing drugs started in 2003 — and not coincidentally, offense has receded, too, transforming the game back to late 1960s and early 1970s-style pitching and defense. If the early 1960s were defined by the M&M Boys — Mickey Mantle and Rogers Maris — the 1990s and 2000s have been marked by the B&B Boys: BALCO and…

If you’re one of my homies from “The Ginny” reading this than you know what place I’m talking about. My go to order was Orange Chicken. Delicious? Yes! Healthy? Not so much. I don’t know exactly what it was but the other day I was craving some. However, I didn’t feel like ingesting some MSG or driving to go pick some up. So I got a little creative and came up with this healthier version. Grab your chopsticks and get ready to grub.

    When designing a resistance training program for optimal gains, you can manipulate four main variables: training intensity, training volume, how frequently you train and rest periods. Adjusting these parameters helps you track your training as well as follow a program that helps you meet your goals. Training frequency and rest period length are pretty straightforward, but training volume and intensity are a little trickier.

One of the best things for stiff, achy joints is movement. Research shows cardiovascular AND resistance exercise offer benefits for people with arthritis. People with arthritis who don’t exercise are at high risk for loss of bone mass, muscle atrophy, loss of flexibility and decreased functionality. How does exercise help arthritis symptoms?

    The first thing most people do when trying to lose weight is reduce their calorie intake. After all, you have to take in fewer calories than you use to lose weight, right? Well, what about the quality of what you’re eating? Most people will agree that all calories aren’t created equal. Your body handles a sugary pastry quite different than it does a piece of salmon, even if you consume an equal quantity of each from a calorie standpoint. A new study from Tufts University supports this idea and shows the best approach is to upgrade the QUALITY of your diet when you’re trying…

    Imagine possessing the most powerful force in the universe. What would you do with it? What if you can make it even better? Guess what? You already possess it. It’s your brain. It has approximately 100 billion neurons and each one connects to between 10 and 10,000 other neurons. That would be equal to 10 to the 100 power or more than all the atoms in the universe. Neuroscience has advanced quite a bit over the last 10-20 years. We now know more about the brain than we’ve ever had in history. Part of that learning is that we know that our brains continue to grow throughout our…

Even those people that are the most talented have risen to the top of their chosen profession because they made improvements. How do we become more successful in our endeavors? We do it through the feedback of failure. Yes, when we fail it’s a sign that we have gotten off of track and need to make adjustments.

Part of this being is one’s mindset. Mindset is powerful in that we all have variations of both a fixed and growth mindset. This depends on the area of life we utilize it. Going beyond the mindset, our minds can be affected in so many ways. Remember, without our brains we would have no mind. And our brain is biological. That brain is also a part of our body and what happens to us in one part will…

    I’ve got an inspiring story to share today! A few weeks ago, Carolyn, a Hitch Fit Online Personal Training client who went through transformation 3 years ago, posted some really impressive before and after pictures on the Hitch Fit Inspirational Page. After shedding 30 pounds 3 years ago, the weight had slowly crept back on as she stopped exercising due to an injury and some family issues, but in December 2014, with a simple question from her daughter of “Mom, did you feel better when you were in better shape?” Carolyn was sparked back into action. She still had her entire…

  • Hitch Fit On The Bad Workout

    Heather Aguayo
    9 Apr 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Ready for some encouragement today? The only “bad workout” is the one you didn’t do! Whatever activity you accomplished today is the best workout you could accomplish. Way-laid fitness plans are generally the result of a diminished motivational center. Instead of focusing on how far you didn’t run in your session today, focus on how far you did. One mile of running or walking is one more mile than you’d done that day, so pat yourself on the back. If you find yourself having trouble reaching your fitness goals during workouts, try lowering your expectations a bit and see how that…

    Focus on the fact that you are stringing together single unders, and last year you weren't. Concentrate on your ability to complete a mile without walking, when months ago such a feat was just a dream. Running is now a possiblity. Remember the fact that your olympic lifts are increasing, even if only by a few pounds here and there. Yes, it sucks you don't have double unders, or pullups, or 100# cleans. I get it. You wish you had the muscle up or the handstand pushup or the qualifying time to Boston. You wish you were the best CrossFitter in the world. You wish you were the world's fastest…

Everyone has CrossFit goals, everyone is trying to improve, get stronger and get faster. Everyone. And that will never come easily. Easy is the point of standing still, maybe even going backwards again. Easy isn't forward progress.

  • Keep Trying

    20 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Nothing will come of giving up. So if you want it, if you want to run farther, WOD faster or lift heavier you have to keep trying. No matter how bitter the failure is. No matter how much you want to just be done with it. If you really want it you have to get back up. You can't let one little set back keep you down. You have to keep moving forward, even if an inch at a time.

  • How Reducing Calories After Dinner Helps with Weight Loss

    michael wood
    17 Apr 2015 | 5:19 am
    There are many different thoughts on how an individual can reduce their body weight in a safe, effective manner.  A good idea is to keep a food journal of what a person is eating over a three to five-day period.  Research published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine has shown that people who keep a journal lose more weight than those that do not keep some type of record.  Exercise and nutritional modification can also help with weight loss.  Simply becoming more active throughout the day will also play a role in reaching a specific weight loss goal.  A great training and…

    If you have not found time to add in some mobility work preceding your exercise session then you need to start today. Before you start loading your muscles and connective tissue (i.e. muscle/ligament/fascia) with some type of resistance, it’s imperative that you spend some quality time focusing on mobility with special attention to any tight, stiff, trouble areas regarding your own body. One of the most important parts of your workout should be the dynamic warm-up and this should always precede any type of strength training. The body needs to be able to move in multiple…

As skilled certified trainers understand or learn very quickly, there are subtle differences between strength training and lifting weights. While strength training regimens for women often includes lifting weights (lighter weights more reps) it is one of a number of techniques that make up this training lexicon.

    Darren Beattie
    16 Apr 2015 | 1:00 am
    Current dogma suggests that all you need to do is eat less and exercise more, or reduce your calories in and increase your calories out.

    You’ve been off the gird for a while now. Maybe you’re not motivated enough. Worry not, we’re here for you. Here are some tips to get you back to your routine:1. Start SlowIf you think you can do too much too soon, then you’re obviously on the wrong track. You can’t make changes in your diet and start with an intense workout suddenly. You should make small, realistic changes. A good example would be to simply exercise every day if you’ve been inactive.2. Prepare Meals BeforehandIf you spend too much time preparing for meals that are healthier then…

    The modern generation has taken a liking for fitness with everyone hitting the gym with the vengeance. It has become a style statement of sorts to have bulging biceps and displaying six pack abs. While all these are good signs that you are looking out for your body, a question that often arises “What about brain health?” Stumped aren’t you?

  • Why Try Functional Strength Training?

    Krupesh Padave

    The gym has been one place that has been most visited in recent times. For the modern generation, temples and churches have given way to the gym. While all this is great, there has been a general tendency of the masses to consider a flat belly (read six packs) and overly bulging biceps as the mark of true health. This is far from the truth.Such bodies might have the visual appeal, but do they have the tenacity to withstand pressure? Can they last when asked to ramp up outside the confines of the air conditioned gym? Simple answer, No.  This is where the concept of functional strength comes…

  • Question Of The Week: How Can I Improve The Bottom Portion Of The Deadlift?

    John
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:28 pm
    Most people are much stronger above the knee than below on deadlifts. However, if you feel that the disparity is too great, there are a few potential problems you may want to check: Starting position with the hips too high. Poor mobility causing low back rounding just to grab the bar Losing body tightness due to poor breath control. Simply just being weak off the floor.   If your hips are too high, you are pulling from the most mechanically inefficient position. Additionally, it is putting a lot of strain on your back that can potentially be dangerous to your lumbar region. The best…

    In our honest opinion, the deadlift is the most important lift in a meet bar none. The will to win is in the hands of the lifter when it comes down to pulling triple digits. That is why we put a lot of work into constructing a deadlift workout plan that kicks major ass and provides results. The cycle for the deadlift is 12 weeks, no more, no less. Consists of three weeks of eight reps, four weeks of five reps, four weeks of three reps, and the week before the meet includes just a double at or around your opener for some added spice.   Assistance work is done on Tuesday because…

So here is three important pieces of info that you must know about the Romanian deadlift. 1.

High intensity interval training (HIIT), which is a core component of my Peak Fitness program, is key for reaping optimal fitness results. Special care needs to be taken, however, to prevent injury if you're new to high intensity exercises like sprinting.

    This is Part 3 of a 3-part series on critical thinking. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here. How The Mind Works Now in order to illustrate how the mind works, do the test below: So how did you do? Did you get the number of passes right? Did you see the gorilla? This test was done several times to different groups of people and the results are that 50% of the people reported NOT seeing the gorilla. You see, your mind works very selectively and tends to focus on certain things, while not paying attention to other things. The most extreme example of this is called inattentional blindness,…

You can find Part 1 here. 6) Anchoring Effects This is the process, of anchoring, or using one piece of information, to make an inference about the final answer. This type of process actually happens pretty often and can be a major source of errors. For example, it has been proven by studies that even giving a very way off base number in a statement can have an effect on the other person’s final answer, even if they know the initial number you gave is way off base. Let’s use an example to illustrate this. You might ask the…

They serve as a reminder of the traditions, as well as the moral values that the majority of the population holds dear. Russia, and the surrounding countries of eastern Europe like the Ukraine or Belarus have a rich history of different folk traditions, among which the telling of folk tales and heroic epics is preeminent.

    16 Apr 2015 | 1:08 am
    So, I’m still not sure what this blog will turn into. But I figure it’s better to post about my confusion than to let it sit here empty. The previous incarnation was a fitness blog. I stuck with it for a couple of months, but ultimately it just didn’t feel right. You have to be more of an exhibitionist than I am to post photos of yourself in workout clothes and not feel constantly embarrassed about it. I just hit my limit one day and decided to delete the whole thing. Goodbye, failed fitness blog. And hello to…well, I don’t know yet. The post Metamorphosis…

    5 Apr 2015 | 4:25 am
    The issue of counterfeit cigars is a serious one in the modern marketplace. Both Cuban and non-Cuban cigar brands have problems with counterfeiters. Some companies, such as the General Cigar Company, have invested a lot of time and effort in fighting against the counterfeiters. The General Cigar Company has taken the fight directly to the counterfeiters, moving against the manufacturers and distributors of the counterfeit products that are based in Florida. They have worked with teams of agents from Florida’s Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, which has raided warehouses…

    If you know anything about cigars, you already know that dessert cigars are the best. They put the final touch on a great meal. Dessert cigars are not eaten, they’re lighted and smoked. While there are many brands of cigars out there, there are only few that you can call dessert cigars, and fewer still that you can put on the best dessert cigars list. Maybe you’ve just devoured a thick sizzling rib eye with a few sides of mashed garlic cloves and creamed green spinach. Or you went to have Italian pasta in hearty red meat sauce. Maybe you went for barbecue, or a hearty sea food delight…

  • What Is A Rolling Gallery In Cigar Production? Here’s What You Need To Know

    A rolling gallery is that part of the cigar production line that shapes the cigar into “smokable” form. A rolling gallery is filled people who are trained in rolling cigars. Each cigar roller would have treated tobacco leaves in front of them. You can think of a cigar roller as a flesh-and-blood machine who rolls cigarettes one after another. The most experienced ones are able to roll 95 to 150 cigars everyday, but this really depends on the size and shape of the cigar being made. Obviously, the larger cigars and the cigars with peculiar shapes take longer to make compared to the smaller…

Many of the aficionados who have just started smoking cigars lose many of their cigar boxes to these beetles, as they are not aware of this problem. These cigar beetles are known as Lasioderma Serricorne in scientific terms. It’s not that manufacturers do not pay attentions to these beetles before selling their cigars. However, these beetles do not raise their ugly heads until after the cigar has been well treated and is placed in a humidor. The best way to…

  • Understanding and Managing Joint Hypermobility

    Jen Sinkler
    1 Apr 2015 | 9:17 am
    I always joke that some people are made out of rubber and some are made of lead. Personally, I’m lead, meaning I’m not very flexible, but others — many women, especially — are over at the far other end of the spectrum. Hypermobile joints can be a major concern in the context of fitness, and I asked world-renowned trainer Eric Cressey (author of the truly excellent High Performance Handbook) to chime in on the topic with information about how you can both identify if you’re hypermobile (AKA rubber), and provide some drills for developing greater stability.

    I once entered a 5-mile race by accident. Let me clarify: It wasn’t as if I tripped and fell face-first into the entry form, but I did think it was a 5K, which was already very nearly the furthest I’d run at one stretch before. I hated every moment, but wasn’t I supposed to be building up my aerobic base with steady-state exercise? At the time, I was trying to get back into shape for competitive rugby after a two-year stretch of utter slothdom, and it was my earnest belief that I needed to expand my cardio capacity before I built strength, speed, and power.

    In a 2012 interview for “Faces of MN,” I discussed my answer to the not-infrequent question about what I do for exercise. When I answer that I lift weights and leave it at that, I’m often met with a hesitant follow-up question: “So…what do you do for cardio?” My answer has long been, “I lift weights faster.” Anyone who’s ever completed a 5-minute kettlebell snatch test, a metabolic finisher after a strength workout or almost any CrossFit workout knows what I’m talking about — you can get in absolutely incredible shape without doing long runs, swims, bike rides, or…what…

    The overarching principle of intuitive training is, “Do the best you can with what you have so that you can get better at what you aren’t as good at…yet.” (Here’s one idea I’ve got for expanding your skill set.) It’s not surprising that this idea, just like the acquired strength that comes with training your body in this manner, has a way of expanding into other aspects of our lives. It also allows the staff at our gym, The Movement Minneapolis, to embrace the role that suits them the best, according to where their skill set and enthusiasm lies. My husband, David…

Because I love kettlebells! I simply can’t rave enough about using them as a conditioning tool to help you build total-body strength and improve your fitness. But this particular cue — the “Eww, gross” cue, which I learned from instructor Max Shank — is one of the best I can give you for learning a killer upper-body strength and…

  • Q&A: How many reps should I do? Speed Edition

    jpascale
    23 Apr 2015 | 12:11 pm
    One of the questions I get asked the most is, “How should I lift to get faster?  Lots of repetitions with light weight, or low rep training?” It’s not as tricky as you think, but before you can understand training for speed and quickness, you have to understand the chart I made (above).  Basically, low rep training develops maximal strength, while higher rep sets lead to hypertrophy and eventually, with even higher reps, muscular endurance.  Of course, this is a simplified depiction of what really goes on, and there is some “overflow” of each quality;  i.e.

  • German Volume Training for Extreme Muscle

    jpascale
    8 Apr 2015 | 10:33 am
    If you’re looking for a serious program to pack on muscle mass as quickly as possible, this might be the plan for you.  Originating in Germany during the 1970’s GVT was originally used as a general prep phase for weightlifters.  It uses extreme volume to cause rapid muscle hypertrophy.  In short, you’ll get big muscles fast. The idea is to complete 10 sets of 10, for one exercise per muscle group on each training day.  You may add in one or two accessory exercises for specific body parts (3 sets of 10), like biceps curls; but don’t go crazy.  There’s plenty of volume built into…

    Color in Motion 5kLet’s all take a minute to honestly answer this question: how hard is it to not munch on snacks while sitting at a desk all day? For most of us, this is a struggle. Not that munching is a bad thing- personally, I prefer snacking and small meals as opposed to eating large meals 2-3 times a day. If we are going to snack at our desks, however, it would be good to pack foods that will keep our energy up throughout the day, and promote overall health. For this reason, we are providing you with a list of healthy sack lunches that will allow you to snack (if desired), while also…

  • I Started Bodybuilding…How Many Times A Day Should I Eat And What Should I Eat?

    Tom
    24 Apr 2015 | 5:36 am
    Earlier this week I received an email from Todd. Todd is 22 and recently started bodybuilding. He asked me the following: “I started bodybuilding…how many times a day should I eat and what should I eat?“, so I thought I’d answer his questions with this detailed article: Bodybuilding is a long and painful process that requires proper nutrition, mental preparedness and a lot of hard work. It also takes times, so there is no room for slacking and quick fixes. Since you have already embarked on an effective workout routine, what remains is knowing what to eat and when to…
  • Fitness Goals: Why We Throw In The Towel Too Quickly

    Tom
    20 Apr 2015 | 2:58 am
    We’re well into 2015 now, and if you have long since abandoned your new year’s resolution to get in shape, I want to get to the root cause of the problem. Essentially, we will look at what didn’t go to plan, and why you threw in the towel. Seeing the Bigger Picture To begin with, we need to understand what your initial objective was, and what caused you to lose focus and jump ship. In most cases, when someone makes a new year’s resolution, they begin with extremely high expectations. While this is a nice idea in theory, in practice it is almost impossible to achieve.
  • More Ways You’re Messing Up Your Metabolism

    That double cheeseburger with extra bacon and a heap of golden fries at lunch, along with a lack of a good workout routine, are some of the most common causes for knocking your metabolism out of a healthy rhythm. Even those who are mindful of their eating habits may end up suffering from a poorly managed metabolism. Fortunately, however, there are many tips that you can think about that can help you up your metabolism game.

  • Strengthen Your Core Muscles And Reap The Benefits

    Tom
    5 Apr 2015 | 3:29 am
    If you want to be better at virtually everything, then you need to strengthen your core muscles. When most guys head to the gym, the last thing they’re thinking about is working their abs. Most will brag about how much they can bench or squat, and toss around heavy weights all day, but few will give the abdominal muscles the attention they deserve. Although it’s awesome that you can bench 400 pounds and that you can squat 500, there is no other area of your body more important than the core. The core muscles are arguably the most important muscle group of the body, they help you…

  • How to Not Die When Squatting Alone

    Jerred Moon
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:37 am
    I almost died recently. Yep, I was attempting to find a 2-rep max box squat, training alone. I got a little over-confident, the weight got a little too heavy, and things got a bit dicey. In celebration of NOT dying, I’d like to share a few ways you can be safe when training alone. Of course, I’ll start with: TRAIN WITH A SPOTTER AND SAFETY EQUIPMENT! Anyway, let’s get back to my near-death squat experience before I give you a few safety options. So, I hit 465 lb for two reps on the box squat rather easily, so I decided, “What’s another 20 lb?” …famous last words. I loaded to bar…

    So, I lifted a million pounds. It was a lot of weight and, to be honest; it was hard to find a barbell large enough to fit all 1,000,000 lb on it. Kidding! I lifted a million pounds of volume and I want to tell you what happened. Now, you can probably guess I got stronger, right? Big surprise…But I did it using only one barbell in three lifts with no real accessory work, and I’ll explain more in a just a minute. The reason I want to tell you about an accomplished goal of mine, lift 1,000,000 lb, is that I hope this journey will inspire you and shed some light on how you can gain…

    I know it is very hard to recommend some products you like to use to other people, even though you think they might be the best you’ve tried. We are all so different and our skin and bodies react in a totally different, unpredicted way. It is like Jenna Marbles was saying in one of her videos recently that she wanted to have curly hair when she was little. So she asked her classmate, who had curly hair, what shampoo she was using. And as a kid, Jenna was totally sure she would get the same hair. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and us, women, we get influenced very easily…

    I have been a vegetarian for 5 years and vegan for soon to be one year. I can say that this has probably been one of the most important decisions in my life. I am proud of it and I have no regrets so far. Changing my diet habits hasn’t affected my health in a negative way, it has only brought improvements to the way I feel, to what I eat and to my lifestyle in general. For someone who is just thinking about going vegetarian, ethical arguments may not be enough, because there are still thousands of animals massacred on a daily basis anyway. But long term changes require a change of…

    I recently went on a vacation to Cuba and this post will be on the products I used to protect my skin from the sun damage. We all know how bad the sun is for your skin. Besides premature exhaustion, it can also lead too skin cancer. California has the highest rates of skin cancer due to the fact that they are constantly exposed to the sun. But even in Canada, where half of the year is winter basically, there are a lot of sunny days and you can’t leave your skin unprotected. So don’t go out without a good 20 SPF cream on.

    I came across these deodorants several times in different reviews. People were saying how amazing they are, how natural and easy to use. I was even more surprised when I saw the price – under $3. So I immediately added two deodorants in order to add to my shopping cart and get a free shipping from Well.ca (use my coupon 10off2015 and get $10 off). At first when I got them, I was a bit confused. How does this work? It is just a piece of mineral salt, a salt crystal. I have never heard of salt being used to prevent odour or sweating.

Dr. Campbell’s GAPS Nutritional Protocol, described in her book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), centers around the concept of “healing and sealing” your gut through your diet.

    So I went to the market and got some sashimi grade ahi tuna, this is different than tuna steaks because you are able to eat it raw so it allows for minimal searing. I always use wild caught fish and organic ingredients to ensure that I only use the highest quality ingredients and minimize my pesticide/ gmo/ hormone consumption. I recently bought some great spices and I’ve been dying to use them. I choose sage for my hearty and sweet “hash” and floral lavender for my tuna. Let the games begin.

  • How To Get Rid of Depression Naturally

    Michael Sieber
    9 Feb 2015 | 9:57 am
    Healing depression naturally is a very attainable goal, however it does require dedication and commitment.  We are seeing depression skyrocket in America, some people blame lack of direction and purpose in a society of conformity, while others blame genetics and imbalances that need pills to be solved. The truth of the matter is that pills may not be needed for depression, and they may not solve the root cause of mental health issues. The real cause of depression in most individuals is poor nutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, inflammatory foods, and a lack of a dream and purpose. I…
  • The Best Natural Health Insurance Plan Money Can Buy

    Michael Sieber

    The best natural health insurance plan is not the one that costs you hundreds or even thousands a month. It is not the one that promises that you will in fact be “covered” when the inevitable hammer comes striking down, the hammer of illness and disease. We all know someone who has been afflicted with cancer; health problems that cost money, or just accidents that cost a fortune. But the fact of the matter is this: most illnesses are completely preventable. Cancer was nearly nonexistent when you compare the levels of cancer today to that of 100 years ago.

Drinking plenty of water every day is important for exercising because cells that do not maintain their balance in fluids and electrolytes will shrivel, which results in muscle fatigue.

  • Is 45 too old to Go the Gym to Get a Six Pack?

    Curtis Fisher
    16 Apr 2015 | 7:09 am
    No, 45 is not too old to go to the gym to get a six pack.  You’re never too old to workout and get in shape.  You’ve got to get your diet in check and that’s the most important part of getting that six pack.  You’ve got to go to the gym to do that cardio and that’s going to help burn those calories.  You’ve also got to hit the weight room to build the muscle that’s going to keep the fat off and make it easier to see that six pack. So the diet, as you may know, is the most important part – you need to change the stuff you’re eating if…

  • How does a lateral ankle sprain occur and treatment?

    Lily Sivyer
    31 Mar 2015 | 7:21 am
    A lateral ankle sprain is a common injury in sports that involve quick change of direction and jumping such as basketball, volleyball and netball. These types of injuries occur when the ankle is in inversion and plantarflexion, otherwise known as “rolling the ankle”. When a lateral ankle sprain occurs it is normally the anterior talofibular ligament that is damaged. This ligament connects the fibula to the talus, as well as this there may be damage to the calcaneofibular ligament which connects the fibular to the calcaneus (heel bone). A lateral ankle sprain is often associated with a…

    It is more common than not to see and hear guys lifting weights for over an hour a day 5 or more days a week. There is something I need to tell you – this is too much. If you are lifting weights for an hour or more per session then you are not working out hard enough. What do I mean by “not lifting hard enough?” It could be that you are using too many isolation exercises. It could be that you are focusing on small body parts. It could be that you are using light weights. It could be that you are ending sets too many reps short of failure. It could be that you are using long…

Plyometrics enhance our explosiveness, power, and body control. They teach us how to stretch our muscles before we contract them as we land after a jump.   These types of jumping movements require the various muscle groups to work together all at once, which involves learning how to use the whole body as one unit quickly and aggressively.   read more

    ProRower is a classic water rower and though they aren’t comparable to other rowers from Stamina or Concept2, they’re one of their kind.

    An irregular eating cycle worked for ancient humans. Small studies show benefits of such calorie restriction.

These ancient humans developed a “thrifty” genotype that helped them adapt to these cycles of want and plenty. Today, we carry this same genetic makeup with us, and several animal studies and few small human trials indicate that there may be, for us too, health benefits to alternate-day fasting — a regimen that…

A slight divergence from clean diet, and they end up gaining unwanted kilos. Our modern lifestyle, combined with our temptation to have foods coated with sugar and oil, makes weight gain even easier.

    Recently, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment, reported their 2015 results on the USDA’s tests of just over 3,000 samples of produce to determine the presence of pesticide residues. Results showed two thirds of the samples tested positive for pesticide residue, and even small traces existed when fruits and vegetables were washed and, in some cases, peeled. While the use of pesticides have allowed farms to become more productive by killing insects, plant diseases, and rodents, the inevitable…

    We have all been told and made to believe that the more you work out the better results you will get, right? What if I told you that you need to rest and recover as much as you work out to optimize your training, nutrition, and therefore your results? Exercise of any type or duration requires you to spend energy outside of your body. It is a physical stressor that activates your sympathetic nervous system; this is the system responsible for our “fight or flight” response. Paul Chek, founder of the C.H.E.K Institute, promotes a concept of working in vs. working out. I love this! Working In…
  • Do You Have “Sitting Disease?”

    You may have heard this catchy new term for what is more commonly known as a sedentary lifestyle. While it sounds a little funny, it could actually be putting your health at risk – especially if you have a desk job. What’s that you say? It couldn’t be you because you hit the gym at least 5 days a week? Think again! According to Genevieve Healy, PhD, we have become so sedentary that 30 minutes a day at the gym may not counteract the detrimental effects of 8, 9 or 10 hours of sitting. Take a minute to consider how much you actually sit each day. You sit down to eat breakfast, get in your…

    An Interview with Ryah Nabielski, MS, RDN, and Founder of Eco Nutrition Ryah Nabielski PBY: What is the difference between a cleanse, a detox, a fast, a juice cleanse, and all those other things we always read about? Ryah: Detox refers to the body’s process of detoxification where your body works to eliminate toxins from the body. In general, “cleanse” and “detox” are words that are used interchangeably and can refer to any type of program including a water fast, a juice fast, a raw food cleanse, a colon cleanse supplement or even a food supported program. There are…
  • Fitness Topic: Metabolic Resistance Training (includes a sample workout)

    Have you been wasting your time with traditional exercise routines that produce little to no results? What if everything you’ve been told about exercise and fat loss isn’t quite right? If so, you are definitely not alone. I’m not really sure how the trend started, but somewhere along the way we’ve been steered in the completely wrong direction for fat loss training. The fact is that while long steady-state cardiovascular exercise (running, biking, elliptical trainers, etc.) may have a place in your training program, is not an effective method for long-lasting fat loss. Long duration…
