    2 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    By Dr. Mercola Wearable devices that monitor physical well-being and fitness are incredibly popular. The number sold is expected to increase from 17.7 million in 2014 to more than 40 million this year.1 Personally, I use the Jawbone UP24 and have found it very useful for keeping track of my daily steps and sleep patterns. Most of these devices come set with a default goal of 10,000 steps a day, which is a number commonly associated with a basic or moderate level of fitness. For instance, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare recommends walking 8,000 to 10,000 steps daily, while…

    I could not get a six pack until I cut these five foods out of my diet. Trust me, I worked really hard to get lean. I have been exercising since I was 13. When I was in my early 20’s, I competed in full contact kickboxing. I trained and worked out so much that I needed 6000 calories/day or I would lose weight, and I still didn’t have much of a six pack. Then I stopped eating these five foods, and I got shredded in a few months. #1 Food That Make Us Fat: Processed (Refined) Sugar Before buying anything in a box, bag, or bottle, read the label.

    Most people are skeptical when I tell them I build my muscle through bodyweight exercises. And I understand why……The media has led them to believe lifting heavy weights is the only way to build muscle and get strong. Well….that’s not true. You can build muscle and strength with bodyweight exercises alone. But don’t expect much if you are only doing a few push ups and sit ups. To see great results, you have to do the best bodyweight exercises.

    The gym is a well known place to build muscle, lose fat and literally transform your entire body over time. For a typical monthly subscription of maybe $30 or more every month, you can have access to various bits of equipment to help build the body you want, from treadmills, dumbbells, barbells and even specific machines to target individual muscle groups, with some being so specialized they aim to work just the small muscle on the back of your shoulders.But what if your local gym is incredibly crowded at all times?

  • Working out in artificial gravity

    2 Jul 2015 | 10:15 am
    Engineers have built a compact human centrifuge with an exercise component: a cycle ergometer that a person can pedal as the centrifuge spins. The centrifuge was sized to just fit inside a module of the ISS. After testing the setup on healthy participants, the team found the combination of exercise and artificial gravity could significantly lessen the effects of extended weightlessness in space -- more so than exercise alone.

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:20 am
    A systematic review of 160 clinical trials of the cardiometabolic benefits of exercise shows which health indicators improve most with physical activity and for whom. For example, some of the benefits are greater for men, people under 50 and among those battling type 2 diabetes or other cardiovascular conditions.
  • Initial weight loss could predict long-term success

    1 Jul 2015 | 11:08 am
    New research using data from the reputable Look AHEAD study suggests doctors may want to look at results from a patient’s first two months of intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) to help predict his or her long-term success. These secondary analyses examined the association between initial weight loss (first two months of treatment) and long-term weight loss (eight years after initial treatment).

    Mice that have a genetic version of mitochondrial disease can easily be mistaken for much older animals by the time they are nine months old: they have thinning grey hair, osteoporosis, poor hearing, infertility, heart problems and have lost weight. Dietary fat, coupled with a natural hormone, can relieve symptoms in these mice, researchers have found.

    It’s amazing how much life can change in a short period. When I think back to who I was this time last year, I barely recognize myself. In 2014, I was well into the first year of running my own company, offering accounting services to small businesses. Somewhere along the way, though, I realized that my work-at-home arrangement was keeping me holed up in the house for days on end. Each morning I woke up, walked 20 steps to my office, sat in front of the computer all day, and then moved to the couch to spend the evening in front of the TV. I had become a recluse.

    Many people live their lives by default and succumb to the insidious nature of routine, burying dreams, hopes, and aspirations, and ultimately resigning to a life of norms. It happens to the best of us so easily. A few safe choices here, a dose of caution there, an acceptance of the script created by a mainstream narrative, and — voilà! — just like that, you’re going through the motions of living a life far less than the one you may have imagined for yourself and one that is a far cry from fulfilling. Habits eventually form and we unconsciously make a choice to simply play it safe.

More than growing defensive (a reaction I’ve *finally* learned indicates someone has completely captured something about me I wish to avoid)–I immediately realized she was right.

The older I get the more I realize there’s nothing new under the sun.) Our initial YES! Day was born out of the realization I’d been on a NO-rampage. Some NO’s! stemmed from a desire to keep her safe (NO! You can’t balance the chair on the stool to reach the plate!). Other NO’s came from a desire to save my sanity (NO! We can’t yank down all…

Try the Weight Loss Calculator: Calories in Vs Calories Out At the end of the day, weight loss comes down to calories in/calories out. There are millions of diets and weight loss programs out there, and guess what, they all aim to achieve the same thing; they get you consuming less calories than your body burns.

Very few foods contain vitamin D, where the major natural source occurs via synthesis in the skin. This process is dependent on adequate sun exposure and more specifically, UVB rays.

    What the who!? 'Anyone with a functioning brain' makes sure they look good in a bikini Clipped from Raw Story -  “If you are offended by an ad with a woman on it or a hot girl or a hot guy then seek therapy,” Fox News host Jedediah Bila advised on Monday. “I mean, go to a therapist. There’s something wrong with you.” “At this time of year, anyone with a functioning brain asks themselves that question, ‘Are you beach body ready?'” Tantaros insisted. “In fact, I ask myself that question every single day. And I bet you people who have a problem with this ad going into summer…

    This procedure is now done where Bob and I both had our weight loss surgeries 11.5 years ago.   I recall posting about it years ago when it was in testing.   I think it's a neat idea. CBS Boston-  If you think about weight loss surgery, there are three main options: Gastric Bypass, the Lap Band, and the Gastric Sleeve. But there haven’t been any other weight loss procedures approved by the FDA for over ten years, that is, until now. Back in January the government agency approved a new device that’s less complicated, safe, and effective. “Most all of my life I have been overweight.”…

    A post by a Facebook friend the other day got me thinking about blogging.  It seems that many of us who used to Write All The Time for ourselves, have stopped.  Why is that?  Why is it that blogging has become a chore?  Why did we start writing in the first place and what changed? I will tell you what happened:  PEOPLE GOT GREEDY.  For me, I started blogging because I needed an outlet that would "listen" neutrally.  The faceless internet seemed like a good idea.   As I wrote, somehow I got an audience, and an audience creates attention, and attention sends advertisers.  I took on…

Last time a sale like this came around, I didn’t find out about it and get it up until halfway through the sale, and a lot of people missed out. This time, I found out a little earlier. I wouldn’t normally put up a post like this right on the heels of the last one, but some many people missed out because I didn’t know about the sale and, thus, didn’t get it up quickly enough.

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…

    I absolutely ADORE this quote from President Obama! It reads: Find somebody to be successful for. Raise their hopes. Think of their needs. Barack Obama Thinking of other people instead of myself has been one of the most helpful things I’ve learned this last year. So many times when I am feeling bad, it’s because I am only thinking about myself. The minute I try to focus my goals on making other people happy, all that worry, fear and desire for control go out the window. Taking the focus off myself and my crazy head and putting it outside myself somehow makes the crazy go away. And…

It is so much easier to be a team of one. No one to argue with. No one to pull you down. If you want something done, you just DO it and it’s done. There’s no waiting FOREVER for that lazy other team member to get their part done so you can do your stuff. This is why I suffered with my binge eating for so long.

  • Foam Roller Routine for Runners

    Eartha Haines

    Runners may find that a foam roller can be very beneficial before and after a run. Most of the time, a foam roller is used as a form or rehab for injured muscles. However, it can serve as a tool for warming up muscles before a run as well as part of your cooldown afterward. Using a roller helps to break down the knots in the muscles which help to prepare the muscles for stretching. Overall, consistent use of a foam roller can improve circulation before and after a workout. How Foam Rolling Works Foam rolling is also known as myofascial release.

That is why the average weight gain for many people during a cruise is 7 to 10 pounds! Being surrounded by food galore, including high-calorie beverages (soda, coffee…

The key is to give your body what is right for you. Water is the ideal beverage for most people.

    (CC BY 2.0) Shaheen Lakhan/Flickr You have probably heard the adage, “Listen to your body.” Well, your body has likely lost its way a long time ago. If you really want to be healthy, you better learn to listen to your brain. Humans are an interesting species. We have a large complex brain, but we have an animal’s body. Our brains can think, reason, and make important decisions to help us. Our bodies are controlled by a complicated neuro-endocrine system of numerous chemical transmitters and hormones. How we work with this throughout our lives will determine our health. The…

    (CC BY 2.0) Damian Gadal/Flickr The Journal of the American Medical Association for June 23 was a kind of marijuana special issue, with two separate research articles and an editorial on the subject of medicinal pot. The takeaway message, at least according to most news articles about the JAMA findings, is along the lines of “Medical marijuana not shown to be effective for many problems it’s prescribed to help.” And one reality: research is still at square one A number of interesting Facts And Observations (FAO) are contained in the JAMA reports, but beyond the bare…

There are many ways to achieve this goal, and making these choices can be challenging, and it is common for beginners to seek counsel from those who know “the way.” Well, let me give you some practical advice on this. Never eat or exercise like someone crazier than you. I’m might be going out on a limb here, but I would say you do not want to exercise like this guy: And you do not want to eat like Takeru Kobayashi: What you do want to do: 1. Engage in…

    Mary Hunter
    9 Jun 2015 | 9:14 am
    Yoga Gear for Beginners to Get You Started I know, I know, I’m a yoga junkie. Yoga offers more than increased flexibility and muscle strength. Practitioners quickly discover that it clears the mind, strengthens the lungs, improves posture and promotes deeper calm and an inner sense of centeredness. When you choose to begin practicing yoga, finding the right gear will help you commit to this healthy lifestyle for the long haul. But let me make it clear. You do not need ANYTHING to participate in yoga. The most important thing you need is commitment. Anyone can do yoga, from rich to poor.

While a few hardy souls have ventured into barefoot running, most runners know that the key to performance, comfort and long-distance endurance is a good pair of running shoes.

    About 4 years ago I mentioned on this site that I was going to be joining Weight Watchers with my wife. We both went through the program for many months, and in the end we had both lost quite a bit of weight. I ended up losing somewhere around 40-50 pounds by the time I was done. While I was happy with the program, I didn’t keep on with the maintenance program in order to keep the weight loss going, and over the past 4 years I’ve slowly watched as the weight crept back on. One pound here, two pounds there. Before you know it I had gained all of the weight I had lost back. Joining…

    Racquetball is an interesting sport, more so because it has the strange honor of both being old enough to be established, but young enough that it benefits from at least the beginnings of modern game design theory. It is also a great way to stay in shape, and fun besides. But where do you begin if you want to start playing racquetball regularly?

  • Is the Paleo Diet Supported by Scientific Research?

    People constantly demand proof for the efficacy of the Primal eating plan. And I’m glad they do. The Primal Blueprint makes sense on an intuitive level, and those success stories we see every Friday sure are persuasive, but it’s also important to see broader support in the scientific literature. Many times, people demand proof without really wanting any; they assume it’s all imaginary just-so stories. “Where are the studies?” has become a retort rather than a legitimate query. Well, it’s time to retire it. With 22 paleo diet papers and counting, the…

    Most of the time, we wield willpower like a holstered gun with the safety off. Temptation rears — an ice cream bar, perhaps — and we whip it out, firing blindly and wasting more than a few bullets in the process. The temptation is beat back, and the ice cream goes uneaten, but the willpower that remains is depleted and less effective in subsequent encounters. And the same thing happens every time we’re faced with a decision. That’s a sloppy way of dealing with the constant stream of temptation the modern world presents. Consider how Odysseus handled the ultimate temptation in…

Next, what’s my take on the ol’ ingredient bait and switch employed by food manufacturers? And finally, say a person’s trying to program kettlebell training into their weekly routine. Should they consider it cardio, strength, or something else entirely?

    Funny thing happened in the gym today. I always like to set a personal best, and I have about a dozen exercises that have records, from Farmer Walks to Squats to Trap Bar Deadlifts to Bench Press and Pullups. Today I decided to go for a pull-up record and that almost resulted in a hamstring or knee blowout. Let me explain.I was so focused on the exercise and hitting my record that I let go

Okay, you’re probably right. Yes… you’re absolutely right. They can, and there is always a place for both body weight workouts and weighted workouts. Sometimes even in the same workout! Amazing, right!? Today’s workout is a killer, I’m not going to lie. It’s just 10 minutes, but it’s 10 minutes of pure intensity. Heart thumping, muscles burning intensity.

Named in early times by observers in countries bordering the Mediterranean, the period was reckoned as extending from 20days before to 20 days after the conjunction of Sirius (the dog star) and the sun.” Source.

Whether it’s gluten-free, vegan, paleo or “regular” cooking, my goal has always been to show that cooking healthy doesn’t mean spending hours in the kitchen OR sacrificing flavor. In fact, when you learn how to experiment with different types of diets, you open yourself up to a new culinary world! I’m no longer vegan, but I still love vegan cooking and often incorporate many of the methods into our daily meals. Most often, it’s my vegan cheese. For the…

    Fifteen athletes were scattered around the room. Everyone was looking at Gideon Ariel. “We’re going to give you steroids,” he lied. It was 1972 and Ariel was conducting a study on athletic performance with his research partner William Saville. On this particular day, the two men were offering the athletes an interesting proposition. Ariel explained that the study would last for 11 weeks. The athletes would lift weights for the first 7 weeks and those who made the most improvement during that period would be rewarded with Dianabol, an anabolic steroid, for the final 4 weeks of training.

    Sometime around 2006, two Harvard professors began to study why we procrastinate. Why do we avoid doing the things we know we should do, even when it’s clear that they are good for us? To answer this question, the two professors — Todd Rogers and Max Bazerman — conducted a study where participants were asked whether they would agree to enroll in a savings plan that automatically placed two percent of their paycheck in a savings account. Nearly every participant agreed that saving money was a good idea, but their behavior said otherwise: One version of the question asked participants to…

I like being on top of my game. Achievement can be a good thing. However, our obsessive focus on what we’re winning can also blind us from understanding how, precisely, people become winners.

    If you have ever suffered from back pain, you know that it is excruciating. No matter how you sit or lay down, any movement will send jolts of pain that radiates across the muscles and bones. Many people turn to painkillers and medications to mask the pain, but there are alternative methods to relieve back pain and get the mobility and flexibility returned. Stretching is a good way to relieve back pain. Slowly bend down and touch your toes and hold that position for ten breaths. This will loosen up the muscles and allow them to resettle back into their normal position. It works better if you…

    If you’ve never learned a language, you wouldn’t begin by reading a novel. You’d begin instead by learning the alphabet, followed by common words, and eventually sentence structure. The alphabet is the foundation for basic language-learning. When you know various letters, you can put them together to make words. The same is true for movement. When you know various positions you can shape your body into, you can put those body-position shapes together to make ‘exercises’, ‘activities’, and ‘sports’. Without letters, words are not a thing.

  • Patience For Fat Loss

    Jacques Laventure
    13 Apr 2015 | 9:09 am
    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…

I didn’t expect immediate action yet that is what it has become. I’ll admit to adding a couple of things that I knew where going to happen but still qualified as “dreams”.

Anyone at any age or fitness level can do medicine ball slams. My clients love them because they are a great stress reliever. A medicine ball is actually a very versatile piece of exercise equipment.

    As I have mentioned in previous posts, my training goals these days are focused on developing a lean, athletic physique that is strong and well-conditioned… …and a big part of that training is based around building my bodyweight and core strength as well as maximizing my explosive strength and power. If you’ve read this blog before you probably know I feel about pull-ups (aka the greatest muscle building exercise ever), but let’s not sleep on the push-up either. Push-ups aren’t fancy, and nobody really walks around bragging about “how many push-ups they…

    You dedicate your life to it… Spend thousands of hours training for it… Sacrifice friends and fun to study and research about it… Lay awake for hours at night thinking about it… GAINS. You want em, you need em, you just gotta have em. You do all the right things…train hard, eat right, get enough sleep. But what if all of your efforts are being sabotaged by poor gut health? Over 2,000 years ago, Hippocrates said “all disease begins in the gut”, and we are only now just beginning to understand just how right he was. One thing we know for sure though is…that…

    Seems like I get asked all of the time “Jamin, what workout should I do to get jacked.” Or “Jamin, what is the best workout for <insert body part here>.” There is no easy answer to any of these questions as there is no one workout that is “the best for this” or “the greatest for that”. There are literally endless workout types and combos out there for you to try and many of them are great. Personally, I like to experiment with crazy new things and try to find creative ways to challenge myself and keep things interesting. This way I keep the gym fun, while at the same…

    Meanwhile in Russia … Dmitry Klokov visited Aleksey Lovchev for his “On Par/On Equal Terms” series. Instead of the usual format, they decided to go offroading with Aleksey’s UAZ hunter. Training footage follows after that. Not 100% sure, but I guess Dmitry will put english subtitles in the video later on. But if you can help with translating interesting bits, please do so in the comments. Dmitry Klokov Visits Aleksey Lovchev is a post by Gregor Winter from All Things Gym.

    After having been providing meal ideas and recipes for slow carb followers for a little over a year, I’ve gotten more requests for eggless breakfasts than I thought would even be necessary. Between the meal planner and the slow-carb recipe Facebook group, I’m surprised at how many people get sick of eggs. I guess I just love eggs a lot! Eggs are definitely the easiest protein source for breakfast, and at least in the U.S., we’re very accustomed to it. If you’re trying to do slow-carb as a vegetarian, eggs are probably the best source of protein as well. But I get that…

You are exercising; you are eating your leafy greens however the weight just won’t budge? It could be stress that’s causing your body to cling onto the stored fat as if your life depended on it.

    Sugar is super addictive. And as a past sugar addict I know how hard it can be to kick the habit. Our bodies are designed to crave sugar as it was once difficult to find as we hunted and foraged for our food. But these days sugar is everywhere and in everything and so your body may be overloaded with the stuff and this can have a really disastrous effect on your health. So if you’re like I was, you probably already know that sugar doesn’t make you feel good.

  • Does Food Ever Really Make You Happy?

    Kim

    Research shows that sugar, fatty foods and chocolate please your brain. So your mind releases “feel good” chemicals to reward you. Foods with calcium, chromium and folate, like milk, broccoli and avocados, lower your stress and depression levels and help energize you. No wonder I can resist guacamole.  But does food ever really make you happy? Sure, you may experience an enhanced mood or even euphoric feeling when you eat some foods. But this usually only lasts for a short period of time. And many of the foods which cause a naturally enjoyable sensation in your mind are not very…

Ron and his family (wife of eight years and two girls) live in western Indiana, where they raise some of their own food, and work their butts off in the yard. Not long ago, Ron was stuck feeling as though he was just drifting through life –  sapped of energy, unmotivated, and overweight.

Then steak.) Many of us do love steak, but are afraid of trying to cook it at home. A nice piece of meat, even at the grocery store, can be expensive, so we don’t want to risk over-cooking or seasoning incorrectly.

But don’t worry, these are a much healthier version and are even competition diet approved! You can certainly add the powdered sugar that I left out, but I don’t think it’s missing any flavor the way it is. continue readingThe post…

  • Look beyond the marketing & hype when buying a cross trainer

    17 Jun 2015 | 4:14 am
    With all the different products and competing claims, choosing a non-impact cardio trainer can turn into one long, dizzying exercise. It doesn't have to be. For a category that represents over 25% of all fitness equipment purchases, its surprising that there's never been a straightforward, systematic method for evaluating your options. Until now. The Ultimate Fitness Test evaluates the top five factors for making an informed purchase decision when comparing cross trainers, specifically the Arc Trainer, elliptical, and the AMT.

    Lower back pain could result from your machine choice Are you willing to pay the price? Hard to imagine, but working out could actually be exacerbating your low back pain. According to a recent study conducted by Cory Hofmann at the Cybex Research Institute, those abdominal crunch machines at the gym could be increasing back pain. FACT: Research suggests that one of the most effective ways to reduce low back pain is strength training and exercise. However, if one is placing significant stress on their low back while training, they are limiting the effectiveness of this potential solution.

    A rivalry exists people. It’s real… the fight between body weight workouts and kettlebell workouts. What? You don’t think it is? You think they can live harmoniously together? Okay, you’re probably right. Yes… you’re absolutely right. They can, and there is always a place for both body weight workouts and weighted workouts. Sometimes even in the same workout! Amazing, right!? Today’s workout is a killer, I’m not going to lie. It’s just 10 minutes, but it’s 10 minutes of pure intensity. Heart thumping, muscles burning intensity. And yes, it’s 50% body weight, 50%…

Named in early times by observers in countries bordering the Mediterranean, the period was reckoned as extending from 20days before to 20 days after the conjunction of Sirius (the dog star) and the sun.” Source.

    Body Fat Percentage Comparisons For Men & Women- Do You Really Need To Be Tested?   Nowadays the golden standard by which many health and fitness enthusiasts use to gauge their level of fitness is their body fat percentage. Ask just about anyone that is seriously into their training what their body fat percentage is, and quite often they can tell you exactly what it is to the nearest decimal point! When I started my training as an apprentice trainer almost 25 years ago back in the islands, my coaches frowned upon the use of skinfold calipers and body fat testing in general. While the…

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?

    In case you hadn’t noticed, I have a slight obsession with breakfast foods. In fact, the majority of the recipes on the site are fairly breakfast-y, or at least could be eaten as part of a well balanced breakfast. That’s partly because I have a huge sweet tooth, but also because the time when I crave sweet stuff the most is in the morning and the evening. The rest of the day I pretty much want savory, high protein, veggie-filled foods, but those times of the day are when I just want all the sugary foods in the world.

    Is it possible to actually get fitter while only exercising 4 minutes per day? According to the “Tabata study” it is. The tabata study was conducted in 1996 at the Japanese National Institute of Fitness and Sports by Izumi Tabata, Ph.D and his team of researchers. Dr. Tabata took two groups of elite athletes and put them through 6 weeks of 5 days per week training. The first group ran 60 minutes per day at about 70% of their work capacity (VO2 max). The second group did sprints following the “Tabata protocol.” They would sprint 20 seconds all out (170% of their V02 max), rest 10…

  • Can You Breathe a Sigh of Relief Now That Trans-Fats Are Banned?

    Cathe Friedrich
    28 Jun 2015 | 8:40 am
    The FDA made a historic decision to ban trans-fats recently, although manufacturers have up to three years to completely eliminate trans-fats from their offerings. The ban applies to synthetic trans-fats, not the natural trans-fat found in small amounts in some meat and dairy foods. It’s not often the FDA takes  such a stand, which shows you how unwholesome trans-fats really are. The reason the FDA chose to remove trans-fat from the food supply is due to its link with heart disease, but research shows trans-fats may be harmful for other reasons as well. A recent study showed a link…

    3 Jul 2015 | 2:02 pm
    Carol Dweck in her book, Mindset, described mindset as either a fixed one or growth-oriented. At any given point, each one of us can have either type of mindset. It all depends on the situation. Take technology, there are many who embrace it while others fear it. Fear seems to be the common denominator as to the type of mindset one possesses. Fear of the unknown. Many times our mindset is being controlled by past memories. They hold onto us with a “vise-like grip.” We fear learning something new and believe that what we knew in the past will always hold true into the future. Sure,…

    I’ve had so many people come to me wanting to make changes in their lives. Some want to get healthy and fit, others want to get wealthy and even others want to find true love. These changes and more are not going to fall into your lap. The universe will only give to you the effort you first put into it. Whatever you want out of life you’re going to have to work for it. Change is constant. The right change takes effort. It also takes focus and concentration. We can all change and most do. But, is it the right change? Last year, my buddy Jason Johnson and I went to visit seniors at…
  • How to Create an Effective Feedback Loop for Success

    Bob Choat
    16 Feb 2015 | 10:43 pm
    “Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” ~Ken Blanchard There are winners and there are losers. No one is truly a loser until and unless they stop improving and moving forward. Sure, we may fail at a particular time. This is expected because no one is perfect. 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.

  • Weight gain after quitting, what is the reasons?

    Katz
    27 Jun 2015 | 10:33 pm
    When you stop smoking many people experience weight gain and this is closely related to metabolic rate. When smoked, the heart rate accelerates and increases the metabolic rate, so it is that more calories are burned. When the snuff is left, everything returns to normal and this is what causes them to gain weight, especially if you eat the same or more due to anxiety. As the metabolic rate is returning to its normal rhythm, you can increase the weight about 4-5 kilos, but this is relative and depends heavily on the individual. Similarly, it notes that studies have shown that even a moderate…

    michael wood
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:57 am
    Exercise may not be as important a solution to weight loss as we’d thought, a new report states. According to a recently published article in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, physical activity does not significantly help fight obesity. Though the report acknowledges that physical activity does help prevent the onset of diseases like dementia and heart disease, it argues that being active does not play a large role in helping overweight or obese individuals lose weight. What does make a significant difference in weight loss, they say? Monitoring what you eat. Though watching what…

    Everyone who is trying to lose fat has one goal, to lose as much of it as possible without ruining their health and one desire, to do it as fast as possible. Both of then are quite understandable, but not making them mutually exclusive is something that demands preparation, insight into the matter and execution without compromise. Why do we gain weight, which food to eat, how much to eat in order to make fat loss efficient, how to speed up our weight loss and how to motivate ourselves are all legitimate and understandable question and the right answers immensely influence the whole weight…

In Disney movies, defining moments determine the outcome of the story. Life is not a Disney movie. There is no defining moment. The decisions you do make at crucial crossroads were really made slowly over many years by little things you chose to do or not to do every day.

    I could not get a six pack until I cut these five foods out of my diet. Trust me, I worked really hard to get lean. I have been exercising since I was 13. When I was in my early 20’s, I competed in full contact kickboxing. I trained and worked out so much that I needed 6000 calories/day or I would lose weight, and I still didn’t have much of a six pack. Then I stopped eating these five foods, and I got shredded in a few months. #1 Food That Make Us Fat: Processed (Refined) Sugar Before buying anything in a box, bag, or bottle, read the label.

    How Hard Is It To Eat Perfect?   Very hard...   But only in the beginning.     In my experience the whole thing has to do with delayed gratification.   When you first start eating well and working out you may not see results right away. Doing something and getting no result makes it harder to want to keep doing it.   If you have the willpower to stick it out and get the result you desire it starts getting easier and easier because you achieved the delayed reward.  Your hard work paid off.

Starch 3. Fiber   These classifications are grouped into 2 types: 1. Simple Carbs 2. Complex Carbs   So the question at hand really should be what is the difference between a complex carb (starches & fructose) and simple carbs (sugar)?  Make sense?   Sugar is comprised of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, which are organized into single units.   Sugars contain

Recent research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute is further proof of how exercise benefits cancer patients. In the study conducted at Kansas State University, researchers found that not only would exercise benefit in terms of suppressing the negative psychological aspects of cancer, but it had a profound impact on its physical properties within the body.

  • What is the Ideal Amount of Exercise?

    Casey McIlvaine
    1 Jun 2015 | 11:14 am
    Every personal trainer gets the question from people about what is the ideal amount of exercise. While there is no universally correct answer, there have been two recent studies that provide scientific evidence that there is clearly too little exercise and the diminishing returns that can be gained by going overboard. According to the current CDC physical activity guidelines, they suggest 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week to build and maintain health and fitness. The ongoing questions for most people are: what constitutes moderate exercise; is this suggestion the minimum; and if so,…

    If you’re one of the millions of people that can benefit from a personal trainer, you may have a false idea about hiring them based on what you see in the media. The reality is that almost anyone can hire a personal trainer that can help them reach their fitness goals in an affordable and safe way. Here is the lowdown on what that process should look like. Today’s reality television landscape has done a great disservice to the role of the personal trainer in many ways.

    Life will throw bullshit at you. There will be people who doubt you. Haters will try to drag you down. You will go through adversity. The path to greatness is never easy. There will be unexpected challenges. Doubters and haters will try to break you. There will be moments where you feel weak and insecure. There will be days where you don’t feel like you have the strength to keep pushing on. There will be days when you just don’t feel like getting out of bed.

Even as a dietitian and personal trainer, I felt a little lost when it came to working out with baby on board the first time around. Doctors’ advice is usually vague, generalized, and on the overly cautious side. “Don’t do anything you haven’t done before and avoid high impact or contact activities.” Sound familiar? The same goes for legitimate websites and magazines. And there’s so much to think about, research, and plan for, especially if this is your first child. These…

    The difference is in the set up. The full squat is part of the clean deadlift, although the person takes the slack out of their body before the pull so the distinction of a clean deadlift from a conventional deadlift is more of splitting hairs than anything. Your sticking point (or weak point) in the lift is usually dictated by the bar position relative to your feet when you start: Bar closer to your shins means that the sticking point will be getting the bar off the floor, but if you can get it up you can lock it out. Bar closer to your toes means the sticking point will be more towards…

    Q:   I’ve been trying to deadlift heavier (up to 380), but seem to have reached a plateau…the biggest obstacles seem to be my grip strength (thinking of using straps) and  pressure on the lower back. Is it time to use a belt? what are the drawbacks to using one? and should I just put it on when I get to the heavy sets?     A:  I would advise against either straps or a deadlift belt. Your grip and lower back seem to be weak points; you want to work on strengthening them and these pieces of equipment do the opposite, taking pressure off. You’ll end up with an…

    When you hit a training plateau, flip the power switch with these 10 ways to supercharge your workouts and shock your system for lightning-fast muscle gains. It sounds simple, but the way you organize your training program depends upon the areas you define as priorities. You typically prioritize muscle groups based on where your weaknesses lie. Basically, weaker muscle groups should be giving higher priority in order to catch up with the more developed ones. Giving a muscle or group of muscles higher priority simply means training it when it’s at its strongest, and possible training it with…

  • Will 10,000 Steps a Day Make You Fit?

    Dr. Mercola
    2 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    By Dr. Mercola Wearable devices that monitor physical well-being and fitness are incredibly popular. The number sold is expected to increase from 17.7 million in 2014 to more than 40 million this year.1 Personally, I use the Jawbone UP24 and have found it very useful for keeping track of my daily steps and sleep patterns. Most of these devices come set with a default goal of 10,000 steps a day, which is a number commonly associated with a basic or moderate level of fitness. For instance, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare recommends walking 8,000 to 10,000 steps daily, while…

    By Dr. Mercola Research1 published in the journal Cell Metabolism concluded that time-restricted eating not only prevented but also reversed obesity and related metabolic dysfunction. Indeed, intermittent fasting is one of the most effective interventions I’ve found to reverse insulin resistance, shed excess weight, and improve body composition.2 Two core mechanisms responsible for these benefits are: Improved insulin and leptin sensitivity Triggering your body to more effectively burn fat for fuel Intermittent fasting also has other health benefits that can be valuable for just about…

    Dr. Mercola
    25 Jun 2015 | 10:00 pm
    By Dr. Mercola Close to half of US women wear high heels, and those who wear them own an average of nine pairs each. The shoes tend to make a regular appearance even though 71 percent of women surveyed by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) said the shoes hurt their feet.1 When asked what they’d do if the shoes hurt, 38 percent of women confessed they’d continue to wear them anyway if it was a pair they liked. You might assume that the pain you’re experiencing is temporary, and once you take the heels off to give your feet a rub and some time to recuperate, they’ll be…

    By Dr. Mercola It’s been well-established that sleep is crucial for maintaining your circadian rhythm and has a significant bearing on metabolic disorders,1,2 not to mention optimal health in general. But as it turns out, exercise may be just as important to keep your internal clocks in sync. Just as there is a time for being awake and being asleep, there are also times for physical movement and stillness. As noted in a recent New York Times article:3 “Exercise may affect how and when we move, even when we aren’t exercising, according to a fascinating new study in mice. The findings…

    Dr. Mercola

    By Dr. Mercola Exercise is a key component of a healthy lifestyle, but exercising incorrectly can lead to injury—a fate many have experienced. Being sidelined for days, weeks, or longer can set you back a great deal, not to mention result in costly rehab. To avoid this, it's worth being aware of which exercises are well-known for causing injury when done incorrectly, and to avoid them unless or until you've found a qualified fitness expert who can teach you how to do them properly. CNN1 recently highlighted 10 exercises known by physical therapists as being high-risk. Done properly, these…

    I remember sitting in my chair at work one day, looking around and noticing all the sour faces sitting at their desks. It was an open office type of set-up which has become very trendy for big multinational conglomerates, but also increasingly started appearing in the smaller firms as well. Everyone was sitting, staring at their screens, clicking away. I thought to myself: I don’t want to do this. I didn’t want to work at this type of job for the rest of my life. Freshly out of university, I ended up getting hired to do what was essentially a dead-end job. Most of the talk at the…

His presence dominates the central stage. He exudes a certain energy and a magnetism that pulls others towards him. This natural aura that an alpha male leader has is called charisma. By having charisma, others are naturally drawn to him and he gets conferred respect from below. Individuals follow charismatic leaders because they want to, not because they are forced to.

    More lessons from the African Jungle to dominate in the Concrete Jungle. Read Part 1 here: 5) Ruthlessness When his authority is challenged, an alpha needs to be ruthless and show everyone who is the boss. Christopher Boehm spent considerable time observing chimpanzees in the wild and writes: “I know from my ongoing tutelage that normally the alpha male will not allow other males to display when he does, for their displays are – in chimpanzee political language – challenges to his high status. Jealous of this authority, he carefully dominates everyday group scenes by rushing around…

    What does it take to be a leader in today’s society? The way society looks in the modern world might have changed, but the old rules of rising to the top still continue to function in the same way as they did before. It is still a jungle out there and you need to understand the rules of the jungle, if you want to become a leader. Chimpanzee society is ruled by alpha males. These are the leaders of their groups, the dominant males. We can learn a lot from the way that things function in chimpanzee society and apply it in our own world.

    When your legs are giving up, your body is aching, and you are about to collapse, the only thing that can keep you going is your mind. This weekend, I had gone on a trip with the purpose of hiking in the Swiss and French Alps. The first day, we did an initial hike that was supposed to terminate high up in the mountains in an area where there is still snow. I knew it was going to be tough, but thought that while I had not really trained, I could handle it. Boy, was I wrong! Hiking up a hill is much more challenging than walking on a flat surface. You are almost always going up. You start…

Our hamstrings get tight from our everyday activities, especially if we are sitting for a long period of time regularly. Tight hamstrings can result in low back pain.

This is also a great stretch to help prevent pain in your lower back, hamstrings, and glutes. Read how to do this stretch below! Lay down on the floor on your back. You can put one foot up…

The Floor Bridge Hold also strengthens your glutes and hamstrings. Here is how you do the Floor Bridge Hold: Lay on your back with your hands by your sides, your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Make sure your feet are under your knees.

    Looks weird, doesn’t it? This exercise is called the Tate press, and it’s fantastic for cheaters. And I am a cheater. Let me explain. Or rather, let my coach, Alex Viada, founder of Complete Human Performance, explain. “Though the number one method for improving the bench press is to spend more time bench pressing, when volume increases, overuse issues may arise,” says Viada. “Weak links often paradoxically become weaker — your body instinctively falls into its ‘stronger’ patterns, and any muscles that overcompensate slightly when you’re fresh take over…
  • 3 Ways To Bust Out Of A Training Rut

    Jennifer Blake
    24 Jun 2015 | 7:44 pm
    I’ve got a secret for you: Everyone, no matter his or her strength level or prowess in the gym, has experienced a training rut on some level. Training ruts are where PRs are harder fought, body composition changes are stagnant, recovery is lacking, or where enthusiasm for your training program has gone to die. Whether you start your fitness journey with Tivo’ed workouts on a fitness channel, at a commercial gym going to cycling classes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6 a.m., at your local CrossFit box thrusting your face off, or at an old-school gym filled with iron,…

    Whenever a potential member walks through the doors of The Movement Minneapolis, more often than not the reason they do is because they are urgently looking for something different than what they’re currently doing. Oftentimes, they feel like they’ve tried everything and had little success, or they had some initial success and then hit a wall. Some people come in with minor to not-so-minor injuries from previous workout programs. Most of them have, as my co-coach JVB likes to say, “done a Google” before they come in, so they know that The Movement Minneapolis rolls a…

This latest Lift Weights Faster Challenge Workout was filmed at CrossFit Center City, one of several of my home-away-from-home gyms while I’m in Philly for the next month, and I was happy to lovingly convince two of my good friends, Emily Record, a CrossFit Center City coach, and Maya Camille Winters, a national champion strongman athlete to join me.

I was introduced to the art of it by my friend and mentor, strength and conditioning coach Dos Remedios, and the author of Cardio Strength Training. The only thing I love more than piecing together of an effective sweat session is what comes after: actually doing it. Because while it might not seem like it, there is a definite method to the madness.The intent is to work hard enough to generate a training effect (that will…

    One of the main reasons people engage in strength training is obviously to gain strength. And, when you start a strength training regime, you may see initial gains fairly quickly. The human body is amazing – once you start adding a load to your body, your body will learn to deal with that load. The downside if this is – after those initial gains, your body can become accustomed to that workout – and you’ll see your gains start to plateau. Here’s some strength training tips for your strength program that can help minimize that plateau, and keep strength gains coming your way! 1.

    2 minute walks every hour may reduce hazard of prolonged sitting Recent studies are showing a link between prolonged sitting and poorer health that can reduce a persons life span. Now, a new study in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology is showing that just adding 2 minutes of walking per hour to a weekly routine of moderate exercise can make a difference! Low-intensity activity, such as a 2 minute walk every hour, is far better than just standing – and can offset the effect of sitting for long periods. This is important to consider, as long periods of sitting are…

The city of Nizhnevartovsk, with a population of approximately 251,000 inhabitants, fears yoga can cause the proliferation of cults.

  • 10 Pros and Cons of Hot Yoga

Once a week for four weeks in a row I went into a hot room with 60% humidity and bent, stretched, and moved with 15 other sweaty strangers for 90 minutes. Hot yoga really wasn't for me. I only stuck it out because, well, I had a Groupon.  After hot yoga I felt dehydrated (even though I was drinking a ton of water), and extremely fatigued. I like coming out of my yoga class feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day, not like I need to go back to bed for a few hours. But I might be in the minority. People everywhere…

The third chapter on Mystical Powers describes specific causes for supernormal abilities like mind reading, invisibility, and flying.   So what exactly are the causes for superpowers? And how can we develop them within ourselves to make the world a better place?   Fortunately, superpowers don't come from radioactive spider bites or laboratory mishaps. Instead, Master Patanjali tells us in The Yoga Sutras that "The powers are found…

I suppose this is how it is meant to be, you taper before a race or big event so you can have those fresh legs, but when you’re just training your body needs to get used to pushing through on a tired body.  I know that when I get off the bike leg in my first Ironman in December my legs are going to be feeling anything but fresh as I begin to tackle the 42km run ahead so spending 3 days recovering between each training…

She was suffering from depression and suffering in silence even though she kept regularly posting fitness related posts on social media and portraying a semblance of “everything is hunky-dory”. None of her friends or family knew exactly what she was going through until she committed suicide.

The human body burns calories by moving, not solely by doing traditional forms of exercise like jogging or spending an hour on the elliptical. Lifting weights, jump rope, hiking, biking, walking, and even fidgeting in your chair are all calorie burning activities. Despite multiple options: Which activities do you enjoy?

And what is more important – it was a decent dose of vitamins and energy. For this power smoothie you will need: 1 Grapefruit 1 Persimmon 1 Banana Few frozen raspberries…

    6 May 2015 | 9:15 am
    Few days ago I challenged myself for real. I took part in The Strong Race 2015. The Strong Race is the only annual extreme mass endurance race in the Baltic States and the point of this race is to overcome yourself and test your strength and physical fitness by overpassing a dozen of obstacles and running through mud. Also it is a different way to express the patriotic feelings, because every year The Strong Race is held in a very important day for Latvian people – Restoration of Independence Day. Bet now let’s get down to the business! What to expect? Since I have participated in…

    Hey guys! I know it’s been a while, but I’m back now. Also the summer is almost here, but there’s no need to panic. I have a rescue plan! If you are a woman (hate to admit that, but especially if you are over 30), there’s a 90% chance that you have been afflicted by cellulite. Women spend millions a year on anti-cellulite products. And there is more than just creams to tempt us. I’m not even going to start to list what women do to fight that damn orange peel. So what, exactly, is cellulite or so called orange peel? Is it the result of a build-up of toxins in the body…

Since then I have skied for a couple of times in Latvia (but it almost doesn’t count – we don’t have big mountains). Basically I am a newbie in winter sports. New challenge? Why not! One day a friend of mine offered me to go to Sweden, Åre. I wasn’t sure if it was worth all the money since I didn’t know what to expect from that kind of trip. But then I thought – what the hell – and…

    Bodybuilding has been around for many generations.  When it first began it was sort of an odd hobby or practice that very few people were involved in.  As the decades passed, the sport of bodybuilding came into its own and began gaining a fan base.  Just like all the other sports, it had its ups and downs when it came to the use of drugs and foul play. One of the major differences between other sports and bodybuilding was that bodybuilding was what you saw and not what you do.  So it was rapidly criticized for drug use and treated more like a freak show than a sport.  At one time there…

For some people, vascularity may come naturally while others have to work for it.  From my experience, I’ve never really had to work hard to get that…

    How to Lose Fat and Gain Muscle in Minimal Time Many people now know that you have to go through some sort of bulking up phase in order to dramatically increase your muscle bulk. This commonly involves increasing the amount of calories taken on board to much higher levels for 2-4 months. It follows then that each day the body will be producing a net surplus of calories which can then be of use in building muscle mass.This is highly effective at increasing muscle mass however some people are not keen on this approach as a certain amount of bodyfat will be added which they do not want.

    If you’ve read one of my previous posts “5 Reasons Why Your Muscle Building Program Sucks,” you will know that most people suffer from Program ADD or Program Hopping. This is when you jump from split to split. I like to tell people to follow a split for at least 3 months. This allows you to establish a baseline and progress. Through my experience, lifters jump from split to split because they get bored with their current split and are looking for something new and exciting. How about we fix that problem?

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…

Select just a few compound exercises and get really strong in them in the 8-12 rep range. The following are 3 awesome chest-building exercises. Again, focus on 1,2, or all 3 of them. Add weight when you can. 90% of the work you do should be in the 8-12 rep range. 1. Push Ups (weighted) I am convinced that push ups are the best mass builder for your chest.

This has stemmed from a fear of getting tired and sweating and it has made humans probably the laziest animal on Earth. Even a sloth has stronger legs than most people.

    What is HIIT?HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, is a method of exercise where you give 100% effort for a short period before giving yourself a period of rest to recover and go again. It's one of the fastest ways to workout, is incredibly effective, fun, varied and gives you more benefits than you can count using both of your hands. It can be applied to almost any exercise and there is a range of timing ratios (intensity vs recovery) that can be used, all of which give you a more powerful heart. Your heart is one of the most important organs in your body, so your best bet is to…

    There are two approaches to building anything: 1) To build upon and simply add new to an existing foundation OR 2) To build from scratch and start from ground zero These truths apply to all realms of life (training, business, relationships, products, etc.), but few pause to consider the implications of each approach. In the first approach, the additions/gainz that are made are not only immediately evident, but IMPRESSIVE. If I’m a 500 lb squatter and add 25 lbs to my top end lift, the gainz are both visible and notable. If I have a 4,000 sq foot house, and tack on a 2,000 sq ft…

    At some point in every coach’s career, they’ll will have to deal with the proverbial beginner or what I refer to as the novice athlete. While many coaches look forward to dealing with these bright eyed young kids who stumble into the weight room with dreams of being the next JJ Watt or Madison Bumgarner, there are many that do not. These less than enthusiastic coaches, rather than bring a beginner athlete along slowly, just lump them in and hope for the best.

    Women need to be strength training. It’s as simple as that. Strength training not only makes you stronger and look better, it’s also good for you. Strength training is good for your bones, increasing bone mineral density and protecting against osteopenia and osteoporosis.  Strength training increases lean mass, which in turn increases your resting metabolic rate, or the number of calories you burn on a given day just laying around doing nothing.  Strength training is good for your self-esteem, and can improve both body image and overall perceptions of well-being.

    Getting six pack abs is simple, but not easy. I bet you see six pack abs’ adverts every other day. The fitness industry is filled with ab products and machines. But I hate to break it to you – none of these products are the key to six pack abs or a flat stomach. Unfortunately, most people who train for abs never get them. On the flip side, most people with six pack abs never purposely trained for them. For most of us, six pack abs are a reward for eating healthy and exercising regularly. It is not the main reason why we started training. Honestly, if your only goal is to get ripped six…

    Brian Syuki

    To get the most out of bodyweight exercises, you have to keep progressing. In our quest to become leaner and stronger, we hit plateaus. Weeks or months go by and there is no progress……you are still stuck on the same number of sets and reps. This can be frustrating, especially when you have been making easy gains in the past. The thing is, it is easy to make gains in the first few months of strength training. But there may come a time when the gains slow down or stall. Plateaus, mostly occur when the body adapts to training or diet, sometimes both. Therefore, you need to make changes in…

Whether you realize it or not, what you expose your mind and attention too, starts to effect your actions, habits, perception, and beliefs. The media, mass marketers, big corporations, and advertisers knows this concept very well and they use it to their advantage to influence people.

    While it seems like just about every image of well developed glutes comes with the tagline ‘do your squats’, the reality is that building your butt effectively takes a little more than that. While the barbell squat is one of the most effective exercises for building mass on your legs, there are several isolated glute exercises which will help you build the butt you’ve been dreaming of. While I’d never argue against developing the quads, adductors and hamstrings as part of your training, some people are looking to build their glutes without working the rest of the legs. There…

    Stuart Young
    26 Jun 2015 | 4:20 am
      When it comes to building mass on your chest, it’s easy to end up with an over-developed lower chest while the upper area lags behind. The lower section of the chest is thicker and generally more responsive to growth, meaning you can quite easily end up with a much bigger lower chest and the much maligned ‘moobs’ look that goes with it. The ideal chest should be essentially a vertical drop rather than a slope, and to achieve this you’ll need to spend some time working the upper chest. Much of the work needs to be done on an… Read the rest The post The Best Exercises for…

They have been used as part of Chinese medicine for centuries, but Western science is continuing to investigate the effects polyphenols can have on things like inflammation, skin health, brain function, blood sugar, blood pressure, general cardiovascular health and even fat loss.

One of the areas that can be worked effectively using the cable machine is the chest.

    Have you ever actually stopped before eating to check in with your body to see if you are actually hungry? Chances are if you practice some mindfulness around your eating, you would discover that often we reach for food out of boredom, loneliness, anxiety, sadness, or a feeling of being under stress and overwhelmed. This is referred to as “emotional eating.” Because we “feel” with our gut as well as the rest of us, it can be easy to confuse emotions or other physical sensations with hunger. Wanting to Eat vs. Needing to Eat True hunger is general and non-specific. It can be an empty,…

    Did you realize experts recommend you change the sneakers that you wear on a consistent basis every 6 months or 300-500 miles? It’s true! Over time, the sneaker’s cushioning breaks down from the constant pounding on the shoes and also from the elements. When the cushioning breaks down, more pressure is put on your joints (ankles, knees, hips). If you are experiencing joint pain, it could be directly related to your shoes. When there is less support from your shoe, your body compensates for it which results in a rotation in your hip, which can then lead to knee or ankle pain.

    In a previous post I shared with you how fat loss or even weight loss is a result of carefully balancing the calories consumed versus calories expended. Your basal metabolic rate, or BMR for short, will take care of some of the calories you consume from your daily food intake. Exercising, however, will help you burn more calories. The net result is a slight calorie deficit which forces the body to use reserve energy stores in the form of stored fat. Fun Fact: About 1 pound or half a KG of fat can fuel your body with 3500 calories. In order to lose that 1 pound of fat you would have to…

  • A Complete Guide To Bodyweight Back Training

    Todd Kuslikis
    15 Jun 2015 | 5:52 am
    Right after I started training seriously with calisthenics, I realized that there was something unique about the muscles of the back. They weren’t like the other muscle groups. There was so much complexity and beauty in back training and much of it centered around the very important scapula. After all these years of training, I can say with certainty that very few things come close to the feeling of having a strong back. A strong back can make you feel taller, more confident, more assertive and fearless. In short, it can make you feel like you can accomplish anything. WOW, Todd! That…
  • 55 Bodyweight Leg Exercises To Help You Build Strength & Muscle

    Todd Kuslikis
    1 Jun 2015 | 4:16 am
    There is a tendency among beginner and aspiring calisthenics trainees to skip leg training completely and focus exclusively on achieving upper body strength feats. I used to be like that in the beginning too. When I started training with calisthenics my biggest aspiration was to achieve the unbelievable calisthenics skills that I saw on Youtube. Almost all of these skills were related to upper body strength. The few skills that were related to lower body strength (like pistols) didn’t seem as exciting. And, for this reason, I pushed leg training aside. Other than neglecting my legs,…
  • 10 Insights I Wish I Knew About Calisthenics Skill Achievement When I First Started

    Todd Kuslikis
    18 May 2015 | 5:34 am
    Learning new skills is the backbone of calisthenics strength training. And because of that, no other form of training seems as exciting and fun as calisthenics. Even though I have been training for more than 10 years, I am still as excited to learn new skills as I was in the beginning. However, skill achievement can also be a very frustrating process. Over all these years that I have been training, there were dozens of times, during which I was feeling that a certain skill is impossible for me, I doubted my abilities and sometimes simply quit. After achieving lots of skills over the last 10…
  • A Complete Guide To AMRAP Training

    Todd Kuslikis
    11 May 2015 | 4:44 am
    The first time I experienced AMRAP training was in my Kenpo karate class about 15 years ago. The workout was extremely tough, all bodyweight (of course) and delivered amazing conditioning and physique results. I still remember my Kenpo instructor telling me that the workouts we went through were “child’s place” compared to his AMRAP workouts. He mentioned that they would last about an hour long and many of the students would have to visit “The Bucket” a few times during training. They would throw up in “The Bucket” and then get back to the workout. Now, AMRAP workouts don’t…

    Most arm toning exercise routines will include various versions of push ups and planks.  While these exercises are great for your back, chest, shoulders and arms, if you have back problems, a weak wrist or have not exercised in a while, push ups and planks can be quite a challenge.  Most fitness videos and DVDs show demonstrations of an extremely fit person, male or female touching the floor with their chest and pushing up with little or no effort, doing the same with demonstration of planks as well.   This is a great indicator of being in excellent shape and you can train…

These conditions are real and they decrease the longevity of life while chiseling away at the quality of life. Of course, we know that none of us can remain on this earth forever, but we can develop healthy habits that contribute to better health, which in turn will affect rising healthcare cost.

    Running is an intense activity. So intense, that almost every muscle engages in the activity if done properly, and many of our body parts can get exhausted (especially the new introduced muscles, that were never used), some faster than the others. That alone can cause injuries, if you’re not strong, and in some areas, very strong, you might over do a thing you’re not supposed to, and get sidelined very quickly. Needless to say, that getting sidelined, usually gets you fat, miserable, stressed

  • The Need for Solitude

    Meditation Citadel
    27 Jun 2015 | 1:34 am
    JEHOVAH commands us to meditate; and to meditate we need solitude. We are to meditate on Jehovah’s Word, not just for mental exercise or personal enrichment of thought or to philosophize, but to be better able then to go preach it to others. Serious meditation, not daydreaming, is hard work. The mind is like a balky mule; it takes a few licks and kicks to get it moving. And it takes solitude so that outside interferences will be cut to as near nothing as possible.Writing in the December 1, 1954, Christian Century, Simeon Stylites said: “In so many ways we, as a people, have declared war…

  • Why You Should Meditate Often?

    6 Jun 2015 | 7:02 am
    Oftentimes, before endeavoring to talk to others about God and his qualities and deeds, we have to talk to ourselves, or soliloquize, to impress things first upon our minds for the guidance of our tongues.Such meditation and self-preparation is good and serves a fine purpose. This is true of our King Jesus Christ, the Greater David: “Of the glorious splendor of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works, I will meditate,” or, “soliloquize.”When we set our minds to meditating about Jehovah God as Sovereign, our eyes begin to open to discern the glorious splendor of his majesty.
