    Visit us at Mamavation.com for more updates, healthy tips and challenges. There are a number of ways food can affect our bodies. It can give us energy, impact how we feel, and change our health. Foods can have both positive and adverse affects, so it’s important that we look at what we’re eating. One of those adverse affects can be an inflammatory response. Inflammation is the body’s attempt to remove something harmful or irritating. Why would you want to eat something that elicits this sort of reaction? You probably wouldn’t. That’s why I’ve gathered…

    When you took the job that you have now, did you hope it would make you happy? If so, perhaps you’ve been surprised — or even disappointed. Though some people are fortunate enough to love what they do for a living, the majority of us face routine challenges that undermine our efforts to enjoy our jobs. Whether it’s a difficult boss, competitive coworkers, excessive time demands, or work that’s simply not engaging, the stresses we face at work are real and consequential. Dealing with coworker incivility is detrimental not only to the employee but also to his or her significant other,…

    Birthday party, Mr. McFeely & Girl Squad?  I don’t remember much from elementary school when it comes to friendships, exclusivity and cliques. I don’t have memories of girls who weren’t friendly or who closed ranks of cliques and left me on the outside. Do you recall any of that? I once asked my mom. I don’t, but I wonder if it’s the benevolence of memory? You were lucky, she responded.  You went to an experimental school where pretty much every kid was the “odd” kid. In that way it was very inclusive. I think about this conversation each year…

A sense of leaving the freedom of youth behind and of the fact it’s time to (finger quote) buckle down (unF.Q.) and commence adulting. or any day, really… 30 for me didn’t feel like a milestone. I’d been married for two years. I owned a small business (which probably should have been maturing–I still felt pretty footloose & fancy free). I…

It has been touted as a way to save the earth and our own health. I believed this hype and and dove head first into eating loads of soy when I was on a low fat diet from about 2000-2008. The peak of my soy over consumption was during 2009. I ate a large serving of tofu everyday because I was trying to be a vegetarian to save the animals/earth. I still ate fish but the majority of my meals had a soy…

Maya Angelou This concept is incredibly helpful to me because I’m a selfish and self-involved person. Taking a moment to try to be nice to someone else, helps me get out of my head, my body and my selfishness enough to make things better for me. Helping other people is a GOOD thing for me. It can be a two-edged sword, however. Being a people-pleaser and trying to help others to the detriment of yourself is NOT a good thing. It’s part of the disease for other…

I felt like I couldn’t eat anything and then I felt like I should just eat EVERYTHING. I could feel a binge coming on. I told Mike about it and he said, “Then we should go to the buffet.” I laughed at his logic. Go to the buffet?

Diana Nyad I feel the same way about walking and riding my bike. I loved it when I rode my bike to work everyday because I was able to get myself to work without a car. I didn’t depend on the bus or a functional vehicle. Even though I owned a car, I was able to get to work without it. And if the beast ever gave out on me, I’d STILL be able to get to work and bring home the bacon.

    It is amazing to me how so many things that I thought were good for me are actually BAD for me. Fatally bad for me. Almost killed me bad for me. For example, let’s look at judgment. I always thought that my constant self-evaluation was good for me. Finding my flaws and eradicating them is what I thought made me a better person. That constant negative voice within my head, however is what almost made me eat myself to death. I was never good enough. I wasn’t a supermodel, so I must be fat and hideous. It wasn’t just me that I judged, either. I constantly looked at others,…

It can give us energy, impact how we feel, and change our health. Foods can have both positive and adverse affects, so it’s important that we look at what we’re eating. One of those adverse affects can be an inflammatory response. Inflammation is the body’s attempt to remove something harmful or irritating. Why would you want to eat something that elicits this sort of reaction? You probably wouldn’t. That’s why I’ve gathered…

    We've had cacao nibs in our cabinet for awhile and I've eaten them sprinkled on top of my oatmeal in the morning. I know they have health benefits, but I never took the time to find out what they were. After doing a little bit of research, I was quite amazed at how awesome they really are. You may be surprised as well at how much nutrition is packed into 1-ounce of cacao nibs. If you are not familiar with cacao nibs, they are cacao beans which are roasted, removed from their husks, and broken into smaller pieces. Essentially, you are eating raw chocolate!

  • Foam Roller Routine for Runners

    Eartha Haines
    30 Jun 2015 | 9:28 am
    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.

    Fitness Tips for Life

  • Your Body And Antioxidant Foods

    fitness guy
    27 Aug 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Even though a lot of people don’t actually realize it, a lot of antioxidant foods that we consume are from vegetables. Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, and peppers are all excellent choices with some great benefits for your body. When consuming vegetables, you should always go for those that are rich in color, as they are high in what is known as phytonutrients. Where to Find Phytonutrients Phytonutrients are nutrients found in the skins of several fruits and vegetables, which give the food color as well as flavor and scent. Phytonutrients are quite simply the best…
  • Vitamin D as an Eczema cure?

    fitness guy
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:39 am
    I am really stretching the vitamin D thing lately but I just saw some medical news out of a skin conference in Praugue. The research explained that a certain kind of Vitamin D supplement was more effective that topical steroidal cream for getting rid of eczema, this is bound to be big news in my house. Almost half of patients with steroid-resistant hand eczema had complete or near-complete clearance when treated with the oral vitamin D analog alitretinoin, according to data from two randomized clinical trials. Almost 80% of patients who relapsed after alitretinoin withdrawal regained disease…
  • Does Fiber Help Lose Weight?

    fitness guy
    27 Aug 2015 | 5:18 am
    Fiber – we can’t digest it and it provides us with no calories or nutrients, yet we know that it’s good for us and most of us need more. What is it exactly, and what is it about fiber that makes it so healthy for us? What is Fiber? Fiber is simply the part of the plant foods we eat that we aren’t able to break down in our digestive systems. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Does Fiber Help Lose Weight? Soluble fiber will form a gel when dissolved in water. This type of fiber will slow down the rate of your digestion, leaving you feeling fuller for longer, and…
  • Free Weights or Weight Training Machines

    fitness guy
    26 Aug 2015 | 7:26 pm
    Should you do only free weights at the gym or use training machines? Something you need to keep in mind and never forget is that when you exercise, you are training for life. You still may spend an hour a day in the gym, although that will still leave another 23 hours or so for your muscles to function without using any fancy equipment. Whenever you do any type of exercise, the movement of your body during the exercise is known as the range of motion. The more Full the range of motion is, the more effective the exercise will be, because your body has to work twice as hard to perform the…

    I have been fighting with Bursitis in my shoulder. Usually I have no problems with my shoulders but during my Kidney donation surgery I apparently had my arm pulled over my head for a few hours while the surgeons were removing my kidney and stitching me back up (not a normal way to get bursitis…). There are a lot of Bursas (or Bursae) in our body, about 160 of them but the knee, shoulder and elbow are the most common. Actually when you get Bursitis in your elbow it is called Tennis Elbow… it is that common. How Did I get Bursitis? I didn’t feel any pain the first day or so…

  • Did Pete Rose's Competitive Spirit Drive Him To Gamble?

    21 Aug 2015 | 7:45 pm
    For many young baseball fans, Pete Rose is a name that is better known for being a baseball player banned from the game for gambling rather than the all-time leader in hits, not to mention games played, at-bats and singles.  In 1989, Major League Baseball banned him from the game due to accusations, which Rose later admitted to, of betting on baseball games including on his own team, the Cincinnati Reds, as a player and a manager. While Rose contends that he never bet on the Reds to lose, which would be a conflict of interest, MLB still suspended him indefinitely. This month, Rose could…
  • Choose Your Words Carefully When Motivating Your Young Athletes

    21 May 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Your kids want you to be proud of them. This need for a parent’s approval can be a powerful or destructive force when it comes to youth sports. When we communicate goals for our budding superstars, the wording we choose can make all the difference.   New research out of Ithaca College shows the effect parents can have on their kids’ game-time anxiety, which can directly impact their performance and overall enjoyment of the game. Miranda Kaye, a professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences at Ithaca, knew from previous research that a coach exerts the primary influence…
  • Just An Hour Per Day Of Play Can Boost Young Brains

    Imagine an activity that your kids could do after school every day that would improve their brain’s ability to make better decisions and solve problems.  Online cognitive drills? Special tutors? Actually, researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just an hour of fun, active play not only gets kids in better shape but significantly improves their cognitive functioning.Plenty of previous studies have shown the link between fitness and better academic performance in the classroom but it wasn’t clear if this was a cause and effect relationship or just that smarter kids…
  • Training Your Eyes To Hit That Curveball

    17 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    “Just keep your eye on the ball.”  Seems like simple enough advice for a young slugger at the plate.  That may work in the early years of Little League baseball when the pitches they see  have not yet cracked 50 mph.  But as the fastballs get faster and the change-ups get slower, having quick eyes and an even quicker perceptual brain is the only way hitters will be able to “hit it square” with a round bat and a round ball.   Which is exactly why psychology researchers at the University of California - Riverside (UCR) teamed up with the college’s varsity…
  • The Subliminal Power Of Positive Cheering

    3 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    Young athletes often hear phrases of encouragement like, “dig a little deeper” or “you have to want it more than they do” or, ideally, “be mentally tough.”  For most kids, these words from a coach, a parent or a teammate go in one ear and out the other.  But, what if there was actually some scientific substance to the words?  Could the smiling, confident face of a coach delivering a pep talk actually have a subliminal effect on performance?  While the conscious brain may dismiss this positive talk, the subconscious mind may actually be putting it to work,…

Climbing? Crossfit? Barre? Boot camp? Lifting? Yoga? Spinning? Triathlon? Swimming? Basketball? Tennis? TRX? Kettlebells? The list can go on and on, the point being that no one can be perfect at all of these things and we often find ourselves drawn to to just one.

    Garry Kasparov and his long-time rival Anatoly Karpov—two of the greatest chess players of all-time—took their respective seats around the chess board. The 1990 World Chess Championship was about to begin. The two men would play 24 games to decide the champion with the highest scoring player being declared the World Chess Champion. In total, the match would stretch for three months with the first 12 games taking place in New York and the final 12 games being played in Lyon, France.

  • First Principles: Elon Musk and Bill Thurston on the Power of Thinking for Yourself

    James Clear
    10 Aug 2015 | 10:44 pm
    Bill Thurston was a pioneer in the field of mathematics. He was particularly known for his contributions to low-dimensional topology, 3-manifolds, and foliation theory—concepts that sound foreign to number-challenged mortals like you and me. In 1982, Thurston was awarded the Fields Medal, which is often considered the highest honor a mathematician can receive. One reason Thurston was able to contribute valuable insights to his field of mathematics was that he utilized a different set of mental models than his peers. In a paper he wrote for the American Mathematical Society—which,…
  • The Chemistry of Building Better Habits

    James Clear
    6 Aug 2015 | 11:37 pm
    There is a concept in chemistry known as activation energy. Here’s how it works: Activation energy is the minimum amount of energy that must be available for a chemical reaction to occur. Let’s say you are holding a match and that you gently touch it to the striking strip on the side of the match box. Nothing will happen because the energy needed to activate a chemical reaction and spark a fire is not present. However, if you strike the match against the strip with some force, then you create the friction and heat required to light the match on fire. The energy you added by striking…

    Is losing fat really easy? YES. Yes it is. Can I lose fat fast? That depends. If you are 250 lbs. and are aren’t not 6’5″ it is going to take you some time even if you are taking some hefty diet pills. No matter what and pill advertisement tells you it will not happen over night. PERDIOD. It won’t happen in 2 or 3 weeks. It will happen over time though. The main reason diet pills come and go is because there is really only one tried and true way to lose weight effectively. Diet and exercise. With that being said, I still take a fat burner from time to time, like before…

Well, I am here to tell you that no matter how many time you watch (and do) 8 minute abs it not going to happen if you have a ring of fat around your waist. In my particular case I had not one but two spare tires around my waist and a double chin! I talked to a friend who is a personal trainer and asked how many crunched I need to do every day to get abs. I felt like such a dummy when I he told me crunches do build abdominals, but won’t burn enough fat from around my waist as long as my…

  • Deadlift Hot Fixes

    Long time, no see. I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my training in the last year, trying to make something of it. In most cases, my training had shortcomings that were easily identifiable and fixed. While there’s nothing easy about training hard and consistently, there’s usually a reassurance present throughout the process; what you put in, you get back, and that alone makes it endurable, and sometimes even enjoyable.For squats, I discovered that my reoccurring knee troubles were related to an inadequate warm-up routine, were I would do only two light warm-up sets and ramp up the…

    “I can’t go any farther.” I’d been demonstrating a movement during a breakout session at the seminar. My buddy, Dr. Dave Tilley, was running the event and had asked me to show an upper body drill. That’s when I hit the sticky spot where I couldn’t make my arms slide any farther up the wall. It felt like I was too tight to make the movement happen. “Ok, let’s see why that might be – it might be a mobility issue, or it could be a neural control issue?” After a quick test, we determined that I couldn’t move my arm over my head in a specific way because I did indeed…

    Don’t be fooled by these three myths about interval training. These misconceptions about interval training can prevent you from achieving results or worse, leave you injured. Myth 1: Interval training is Extreme Too often I hear people say that interval training requires working really hard, pushing yourself to extremes. Where’s It Come From Some forms of interval training produce the best results with extreme intensity. For example Tabata training is short, sweet, and brutally intense. The Tabata interval workout consists of four minutes of very high intensity work periods that…

    If you really want to get down to it, training is about one thing – using a specific energy system. “What’s that” you say. 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. However, if you learn to train these systems well, you can start expecting even better results from your time and effort training.

I was coming out of a bad relationship and dating someone new. While that “someone new” turned out to be my husband, I was very unsure at that time if we were meant to be. I was finishing my degree but had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I’ve always had a complicated family life. I didn’t know where I was going or who I was. In the gym, however, I found that none of that mattered. In the gym, all I had to do…

  • How Compulsive Hair Pulling affects Self Esteem

    Sheila Thomas
    19 Aug 2015 | 8:40 am
    Compulsive Hair Pulling is a disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to pull out the hair from the body, and is known clinically as Trichotillomania or TTM. While the scalp is the most common site of pulling, any part of the body including the eyebrows, eyelashes and pubic hairs can be targeted. The location and severity of pulling, and therefore response to treatment varies greatly from person to person. Resisting the urge to pull is a daily struggle, and succumbing to these urges inevitably results in noticeable hair loss or bald patches. Because of the limited awareness of TTM, many…

On purpose. Practicing. Again. I’m reminded that I rarely put all the pieces perfectly in place at one time. Some days I do great on fueling myself, but I neglect moving my body. Other days, I drink enough water,…
  • My Stories Aren’t True

    Kris
    10 Jun 2015 | 5:11 pm
    I tell myself stories. I tell you stories. My stories have become the automatic narrative. So much so, that I don’t question them any more. Over time, my stories became my truth. But are my stories really true? It’s a simple yet powerful question. When I get honest, I realize that many times the answer is no. Many of my stories are not true. Here’s my story about who I am. Story: I’m not athletic – my body fails me. I couldn’t summit the mountain. I failed the president’s physical fitness test. I can’t run a mile. Truth: That was then.  Now,…

While you may not care much about Twitter today (although you should), when you do – you won’t be able to access it.

A case is made for why they should provide they’re email address in exchange for something relevant and valuable. The exposure occurs when they exhibit “exit intent”. In other words, as soon as they move their mouse toward the browser controls, presumably to type in a new Google search query or enter another URL. Once triggered, a dark mask covers the webpage and a vibrant opportunity appears.So that’s a working…

    The gym is my salvation. It is how I got hooked on weight lifting over 16 years ago. When I first started my fitness journey I was a scared and insecure 20-something. I was coming out of a bad relationship and dating someone new. While that “someone new” turned out to be my husband, I was very unsure at that time if we were meant to be. I was finishing my degree but had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I’ve always had a complicated family life. I didn’t know where I was going or who I was. In the gym, however, I found that none of that mattered. In the gym, all I had to do…

I knew it would mean taking a week off from weights (which might actually help me push through the second half) and packing plenty of clean snacks. What I hadn’t planned on was a weekend road trip to Kansas City. Long story, short version….my husband needed to test drive cars. I also can’t pass up opportunity for a Costco/Trader Joe’s run. Since we’re going to Peru so soon that means I can’t “take off” a couple of days from the plan if I…

    The biggest obstacle on your fitness journey isn’t missed workouts or birthday parties. It isn’t forgetting your lunch or not hitting 10K steps. Your biggest obstacle is your INNER CRITIC. It is the constant chatter of negative self talk. It’s the negative messages we give ourselves. It’s the unrealistic expectations we apply to our progress. It’s the feelings of unworthiness that keep us from going after what we want. Most of my clients deals with at least one of these things.

    Courtesy Dr. J Obesity causes many health problems, so physicians in clinical practice often recommend weight loss to their patients, often a modest initial goal of a 5 percent loss. Unfortunately, however modest it may seem, patients have a hard time reaching and maintaining even that goal. Researchers recently looked into the intractability of weight loss by data mining the confidential medical records of a large subset of the U.K. population. (The data was provided to the researchers by the GCHQ, the NSA, People’s Liberation Army Unit 61398, Anonymous, and Wikileaks.) They found that…

Belly fat is a stress issue. I normally start with 800 mg of Phosphatidyl Serine (800 mg. a day) 3. Belly fat is also and issue of high estrogen in the system.

Performing DB chest presses/shoulder presses on Swiss Balls doesn’t increase activation of the abs, deltoids or pecs 3. Press the bar overhead and hold for six seconds. Then lower the bar down and do a half rep but with a six second hold. Count each 1 ½ reps as one rep and do at least six reps. Spend those six seconds when the bar is in the overhead position tensing and contracting the deltoids hard. You won’t be able to use as much weight…

    Metabolism Boosting Foods You May Not Know If you are looking to burn more calories and increase your metabolism, consuming these metabolism boosting foods might give you the help you have been searching for.

    It’s something we’ve talked about since we were kids in gym class: “can you touch your toes?” We even had the “sit-and-reach” test in the Presidential Fitness Test (remember that!?). Is there a point to it though? Why does “touching your toes” actually matter? Well, to start, developing proper flexibility and mobility is crucial when it comes to strength training – not being able to touch your toes can reveal a plethora of muscle imbalances that leads to poor form (and potential injury) when performing major movements such as squats,…

I have a Samsung Galaxy phone and use the S Health app.  The S Health app tracks my steps and my activity level.  It sends me a notification when I have been inactive for an hour.  It also shows me a sleeping sneaker if I have not been moving for awhile. I carry my phone with me everywhere so it works well for me.

Her turning point came when she saw a Pacific Crest Trail guide book.  Something about the book made her want to become a hiker.  Instead of using rehab to change her life, she visits an REI store  to buy hiking gear to begin her transformation.

    Fermented FoodAt first the thought of eating something fermented may not seem very appetizing. However, I would bet you probably already eat some fermented food but may not realize it. There are actually several benefits of fermented food.First of all what is the fermentation process?It is a process that preserves food called lactofermentation. Natural bacteria feed on the natural sugars found in the food and make acids, gases, or alcohol. This is a very old way to preserve food. It was done way before people ever understood why or how it happens exactly. Fermentation is used to make common…

The formula for the BMI is as follows:  It is basically only to be used for sedentary individuals with average body composition. Therein lies the flaw. It cannot be used for the entire population.

I loved to run and cycle outside, but the only time I really explored the outdoors was when I was a girl scout troop leader (in my 20s). So it’s fair to say that I was a complete newbie to the adventurous, outdoor lifestyle that I’ve adopted recently. Everyone starts somewhere! This past weekend, I bagged my fourth 14er – Mt Sherman. Yep, I’m even using the lingo now. Bagged is the hiking term for completing a summit. I love the accomplishment of adding a…

The list can go on and on, the point being that no one can be perfect at all of these things and we often find ourselves drawn to to just one. That magnetic pull is what draws us in and we find ourselves wanting to be better at one element of fitness over the others. But then…

    I have a tendency to take a very long time to tell a story. Dan often says, Just get to the point already.” So that’s what I’ll do. Saturday afternoon, I broke my leg. This wasn’t the post I originally had scheduled for day. Instead it was a great podcast and piece regarding the “Jill Of All Trades” Syndrome. Don’t worry, it will be up tomorrow morning. Instead, I wanted to let you guys know immediately since something like this affects the blog. If you don’t care about a broken leg, it won’t hurt my feelings if you aren’t into the post today.

Though, I’m not sure how much relaxing will take place. This weekend is our Annual Summer Field Day… all of our boot camps come together and compete for THE Golden Kettlebell! It’s kind of a big deal. And a blast! Make sure to follow along on Instagram to see some of the chaos that goes on. So yesterday, I was finally able to meet up with my friend Erica for a quick run. It’s been ages since we’ve run…

    20 Aug 2015 | 2:00 am
    I learned a very valuable lesson this week: **Don’t try to film a workout after an hour of bouldering.** Its funny how sometimes you’re on fire and feeling like a beast and the next you want to cry like a little girl because you can’t muster a single rep when you know you should. You can’t always control what your body can and can’t do. It’s humbling and it’s frustrating. Let’s back up… Tuesdays mean two things to me… Hitting up the climbing gym for an hour of “recess”. Filming the workout for the week. Climbing is new to our routine and something we’re still trying…

    You Don’t Need Large Amounts Of Protein To Build Muscle- A Look At The Science For many, high protein intakes have always been synonymous with weight training. Spend time at any serious gym and you won’t be able to miss the hardcore crowd of men and women with protein shakes and Tupperware containers filled with skinless chicken breasts ready to be eaten every three to four hours. All in the quest to meet the benchmark of 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, which works out to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight for those of us metrically inclined.

    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…

    5 Reasons Why You Don’t Need Vitamin Supplements   Estimates are that anywhere from 25% to 50% of American adults have taken some form of vitamin supplement over the past year, with sales in the United States reaching a little over $13 billion for vitamin and mineral supplements in 2006, of which $5.4 billion was for multi-vitamins.[1,3,18,19] Popular since the 1940’s when they were first artificially synthesized, savvy marketing on the part of the supplement industry has made it such that today most members of the general public believe vitamins to be a quick and inexpensive to…

    When Is The Best Time To Workout? AM vs PM Most gym goers have their preferences and set-in-stone ideas as to when is the best time to workout. 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? Like so many questions related to human…

    There’s nothing that goes quite so well together as chocolate and coconut. The combination of the two ingredients tastes especially decadent, even though both ingredients are actually really good for you (well, unless they’re accompanied by mounds of sugar). These homemade protein bars are just as satisfying as a candy bar, yet are packed with healthy fats and protein to fuel your muscles and actually keep you full. They’re great as an easy snack or even as a dessert any time of the day. Here’s the chocolate drizzled coconut protein bar recipe: Ingredients 3/4 cup…

    If you’ve never been to the Virgin Islands I highly recommend it. I spent the past week there with my family decompressing, relaxing, and doing anything and everything I could to stay away from a screen. They’re everywhere you know. It sort of cracks me up how Apple made the watch irrelevant and then made it relevant again. At any given moment you can have a screen in front of your face, in your hands, on your wrist, and in your pocket. I apologize for the mini rant. Today’s article has nothing to do with Apple, screens, or pockets. It’s all about how you can have a…

Food is… A few years ago if someone asked me that question I would have told you – in a very definitive way, that food is fuel – and that’s it. It’s suppose to give me energy, get me through my workouts, and act as a resource to get me through my day. This was my fitness and nutrition consulting brain talking. Viewing food as fuel, only takes into account the physiological effects that it has on us and neglects the thousands of other ways it impacts our lives.

  • How the Female Spine Changes with Age and Why It Matters

    Cathe Friedrich
    23 Aug 2015 | 8:05 am
    Your spine has an important job – it supports your body, helps you stay upright and allows you to safely move and change positions. It also protects the nerves that run through your spinal cord – the ones that send messages from your brain to the rest of your body. The bony parts of your spine are called vertebrae, with the largest vertebrae being in the lumbar region at the base of your spine, since this is the part that bears the most weight. Each vertebra has two facet joints that support movement, yet restrict excessive motion that could be damaging to the spinal cord. Between…

  • Resistance Training: Why You Should Train Using a Variety of Rep Ranges

    Cathe Friedrich
    23 Aug 2015 | 7:49 am
    The number of reps you do for a given exercise as well as the total volume of work you do impact strength and muscle development. When training primarily for strength, you can maximize strength by using a heavy resistance and doing a lower number of reps. In contrast, if you’re trying to gain muscle endurance, higher reps using a lighter weight offers benefits. What about increasing muscle size? Strike a balance between resistance and volume. In general, for muscle hypertrophy, you select a weight that’s 70% to 80% of your one-rep max and perform 8 to 10 reps per set with between…
  • Does Rinsing Fruits and Vegetables Remove All the Pesticides?

    When you’re trying to eat a clean diet, the last thing you want to think about is pesticide residues on the fresh produce you’re eating, but, unfortunately, it’s a concern. Unless you buy organic fruits and vegetables, the yummy veggies and fruits you’re eating likely contain traces of pesticides. According to an investigation carried out by Consumer Reports, the quantity of pesticides on produce, once it reaches the supermarket, varies dramatically even on fruits and vegetables grown in the U.S.A. No doubt those pesticides end up in your body. According to the Centers…
  • Bent-Over Rows: Why They Should Be Part of Your Routine

    23 Aug 2015 | 7:27 am
    It’s all too easy to focus on training the superficial muscles in the front of your body, the ones you can flex and see, like your biceps and triceps, and under-train muscles that are hidden most of the time like those in your back. The problem is this approach leads to muscle imbalances that increase your risk for injury. The muscles that move your body when you do an exercise, called the agonists, work together with the opposing muscles, called the antagonists, to accomplish the move. The agonists contract or shorten while the antagonists relax or lengthen. For this to be seamless,…

    Peter Fitschen
    7 Aug 2015 | 10:50 am
    I want to start off by saying that choosing a coach to help you diet down for a contest is not a necessity. Many people prep themselves and look great onstage; however, having someone give you an objective eye, keep you accountable, and teach you about the sport and the process of preparing to compete in it can be a valuable tool. However, one thing I have noticed lately is the fact that nearly everyone seems to be a prep coach these days. I think it is great that so many people are getting into the sport and want to help others achieve their goals; however, like anything there are good…

  • Science vs. Broscience in Bodybuilding: Is There a Common Ground?

    Peter Fitschen
    8 May 2015 | 2:53 pm
    There is a lot of division in the sport of natural bodybuilding. For years there has been a divide between competitors who compete in drug-tested competitions and those who compete in untested competitions. More recently, with an increased interest in a science-based approach to the sport, there has become a further divide between competitors using a science based approach and those doing what works for them, commonly referred to as broscience. In my opinion, all of this division is not good for the growth of the sport as a whole. In comparison, crossfit is growing rapidly. My personal…

It’s actually a statistical fact that the majority of individuals who set a New Year’s resolution are looking to improve their body composition (specifically looking to lose fat). [1] Alas, the ambition of most of these resolvers is never seen through to the end. In fact, only about 46% make it passed the 6-month mark. However, this shouldn’t dissuade…

He survived Iwo Jima and other battles. Lt. Col. John Richter was also the officer-in-charge of the Marines Close Combat training.

    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,…

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.

  • 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…

    It’s so hard to get started, isn’t it? We have a great goal in mind, complete with healthy eating choices and a gym membership. But the motivation and that initial jump start just isn’t there. The best way to maintain a solid pursuit of your goals is to dive in immediately and do something. It doesn’t matter if you have every little detail and workout planned to the minute. All that matters is that you want to be healthier and you’re willing to move your body to get there. Here are 3 teeny tiny ways to get involved in the fitness lifestyle right now.

  • ​You don't need to be perfect.

    26 Aug 2015 | 4:11 pm
    So don't let the imperfections stop you from showing up.Form can be worked on, mobility improved, diet altered.But to do any of that you have to be there. You have to be imperfect and willing to show up anyhow.So throw perfect out the window. Stop trying to chase it. Just show up, do your best, improve what you can and call it a day.
  • ​Get back up.

    26 Aug 2015 | 2:31 am
    So you fell off the bandwagon. You stopped working out, or your stopped eating right or you stopped your daily runs.It's OK.Just get back up and start again. There is no shame in failing. Who cares if you make the same resolution over and over? That's how goals get checked off. I can't sit here and tell you that you will succeed. But what I can tell you, is if you don't get back up, you are sure to fail.So go ahead. Say it out loud, write it down, tell a friend - even if for the hundredth time. You never know, maybe the hundredth time is the charm. Try again.
  • ​It's all about heart.

    25 Aug 2015 | 5:24 am
    It's all about heart.Take a look inside. Uncover your strength from the fear of failure. Get. Back. Up. Triumph over yourself, triumph over the inner devil yelling you can't, and lead yourself to the top.Find your heart. Find your inner strength, find the voice that will scream for your success. Find it and stoke it and let it burn. Day after day, year after year, until you are where you want to be.
  • ​Stop beating yourself up.

    21 Aug 2015 | 3:31 am
    Give yourself a break.Fitness is a journey, one that we should all enjoy. A journey that should build us up, not break us down.It's frustrating you are travelling slowly. I get that. You hate that you are still on the band or doing pushups from your knees or rocking out a 65lb clean.But you are in there, working, succeeding, suffering, winning, failing, sometimes flailing.So give yourself a pat on the back. You might not be where you want to be, but you are on the path and moving forward.
  • ​Keep chipping away.

    20 Aug 2015 | 2:02 am
    In sets of ten, in sets of five. Hell, sets of one works too.Just keep moving. Rep by rep, movement by movement you will get through it if you just keep moving.You don't have to be fast. You just have to finish.

  • Why We Underestimate Calorie Totals

    michael wood
    24 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    The New York Times reports that when asked to track calories, individuals frequently underestimate their daily calorie totals. When, at the end of each day, participants of a recent study provided calorie totals, additional research found their responses underestimated actual totals.  Even researchers studying calorie consumption are challenged to acquire accurate data given that the surveys they use, like the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, rely on individuals’ memories. When participants are asked to recall what and how much was consumed, things like a mid-afternoon…
  • How to Maximize Muscle Adaptation

    michael wood
    21 Aug 2015 | 4:53 am
    It is clear as day that building muscle mass is a painful process that demands considerable devotion, diligence, time, planning, and physical endurance. Unfortunately, most people will stop pursuing this goal within the first six months of training. This is because reaching such formidable level of fitness and definition can protract, cause impatience, and as well as having improper training, can lead to lousy results and loss of enthusiasm. Still, there should be no room for discouragement; a sound body doesn’t go anywhere without a sound mind. Developing a stable and focused mind set is…

  • 5 Nutrition Tips for Running a Marathon

    1. Nothing beats the impact of hydration on performance. Before the race, let thirst be your guide to the finish line and use a sports drink to replace fluids during the race. If you are racing just to participate and finish, then drink when you are thirsty throughout the event.  If you are racing to win or achieve your personal record then have a structured fluid replacement plan during the race and stick with it!

    Here is a quick dynamic warm-up that you can try before your next run or workout to get your body prepared for the upcoming bout of exercise. In the video, Julia, a D1 runner, used a foam roller for about 15 minutes prior to the start of the video.  Her goal was to “release” specific areas that were tight in her lower extremity resulting from a previous run.  You have the option of going through these specific movements more than once if needed.  Following the dynamic warm-up, she went for her run and then hit the foam roller once again before calling it a day.  Try 5-6…

    If two people consume the same exact food, but one consumes a portion of their food late at night, the food will have the same impact on their bodies weight-wise... right?

One group was allowed only to eat within an eight hour period.  The second group were free to eat any time they wanted day or night.

  • The Importance of Balance Training

    Casey McIlvaine
    29 Jul 2015 | 8:23 am
    With obesity at an all time high, it is evident that the American population spends less time partaking in physical activities than ever before. A large majority of the average American’s day is spent sitting, whether at work, watching television, or driving. Therefore, our bodies quickly adapt to these idle environments. This lack of physical activity creates a higher risk of injury, because our nervous system may have a difficult time balancing our structure in an active and unstable environment. Our balance system is made up of all of the senses in your body that inform you on how you…

Psychological models used to describe the process of how people change is actually a circular process. The process moves through cycles of deciding change, progress being made, setbacks, and then going back to reevaluate and refine their initial decisions. For example, smokers who are trying to quit permanently generally go through this process multiple times before ultimately quitting for good. By encouraging…

    Every industry has it’s own lingo and terminology. If you’ve spent a decent amount of time doing this whole fitness thing, you’ve probably picked up on a few new words. For most guys who regularly lift, they speak fitness. And it can get pretty complex. Luckily I broke a lot of it down for you. So here’s the (very politically incorrect) guide on how to speak fitness which includes 55 common words and phrases. 1. “On that grind” – Basically, you workout.

    Note: This is Part 1 of 2 of my minimalist training article series.  You can read part 2 here. Minimalist training is so hot right now. Like hotter than Alexandra Daddario in True Detective. Yeah…that hot. The basic idea behind minimalist training is to train as little as humanly possible in a way that still gets results. Typically this involves training 2-3x per week, only doing 2-3 exercises, for no more than 30-60 min. And then there are the guys out there who say you can get ripped in 15 minutes per day with nothing but your bodyweight and a towel. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
  • Tracking Marcos Sucks: Why You Should Use Macro FLEX Tracking Instead

    Keith
    6 Aug 2015 | 9:35 pm
    Counting your macros (macronutrients) is like the older, more mature version of just counting calories. When you’re counting macros, you’re tracking your 3 different variables (proteins, carbs, fats) and told to hit a specific amount based on whatever formula you’re using. A lot of people like to call this IIFYM (if it fits your macros) or flexible dieting. On the other hand, when you just count calories, you’re only tracking 1 variable (the overall amount of calories). But tracking macros is highly recommended over only tracking calories since you could make your…

Everyone these days is apparently “bout that life” (the fuck does that even mean)? If you don’t squat and deadlift, you might as well not workout. If you don’t track your macros down to the exact gram, then you’re an idiot (because tracking macros is life). And it’s getting weirder too.

The race was hosted by the Picayune Dancers to fund their upcoming trip to New York for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. As usual I worked a 12 hour shift then decided last minute to run. I made the hour drive to Picayune, which I had never been to before minus passing through on the interstate. The race site was in the historic downtown area. I got my race number and was ready to run….but I realized the race was not until 7:30pm and I had some time to wait. I had been up since 4:00am for work so…

    Race four, the finale, of The Varsity Sports Summer Series was held Wednesday at Varsity Sports in Mandeville, LA. The theme for the 2 mile race was “Elvis Lives.” I was worried about the weather for this race since the heat index was 121 degrees at 3:00pm. When arrived at the race at 6:00pm I quickly realized the heat would be the least of our worries. The sky to the east of us was completely black and the wind was blowing. On the bright side it cooled down a lot. I was excited to have my high school cross country teammate joining me for the race, but I don’t think she was…

Wednesday was race #3 and the theme was Rock N Roll. The word of the day was hot. The second word of the day was humidity. You get the picture. I was concerned about the heat going into this race because I was having trouble running in the afternoon on Monday. The heat has been near record breaking in southern Louisiana and the heat index has been averaging 110-115. I decided to forget a costume this week since it was too hot at the last…

  • Barbell Deadlift VS. Clean Deadlift – Is There Any Difference?

    John Balboa
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:11 pm
    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…

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…

    By Dr. Mercola Most people want to live a long, healthy life. If that's something you aspire to, you'd be well advised to keep a careful eye on your insulin sensitivity. It is perhaps one of the best markers for limiting your risk for degenerative diseases that will take you out prematurely. The reason for this is because insulin resistance lays the foundation for virtually all chronic disease, as it promotes chronic inflammation and speeds up your body's aging processes. A recent study1,2 looking at extreme longevity confirms this view, concluding that having very low levels of inflammation…

    Dr. Mercola
    20 Aug 2015 | 10:00 pm
    By Dr. Mercola Applying ice or heat can provide relief from injuries, aches, and pains, but they shouldn't be used interchangeably. Generally speaking, ice works well after a sudden injury while heat helps to soothe ongoing muscle aches and pains. Ice works for injuries because it narrows your blood vessels, which helps prevent blood from accumulating at the site of injury, which will add to inflammation and swelling while delaying healing. This is also why elevation is helpful, since it  limits blood flow to the area to minimize swelling.1 A good rule of thumb to remember following an…

However, men also lose bone mass as they age. It's estimated that 16 million US men have low bone mass while close to 2 million have osteoporosis.1 People with osteoporosis, in turn, are at increased risk of height loss, fractures of the hips, wrists, and vertebrae, and chronic pain, so it's definitely a disease you're better off avoiding.

Freshly out of university, I ended up getting hired to do what was essentially a dead-end job. Most of the talk at the…

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…

The pain could result from lack of particular nutrients such as magnesium, potassium or calcium, inadequate blood flow to certain areas, certain medications, tedious work outs, or dehydration. Here is a […] The post 5 Natural Remedies For Relieving Muscle Pain appeared first on Jane's Best Fitness.

  • The Best Protein Sources for Fat Loss and Lean Muscle Gain

    Josh Vales, CPT
    26 Aug 2015 | 6:38 pm
    Protein is critically important to building muscle, and this certainly isn’t a secret. But did you know that it might be even more important when you’re trying to shed those extra pounds? Indeed, studies have repeatedly shown that when dieting, a slightly increased intake of protein (1.2 grams per pound of bodyweight vs the traditionally […] The post The Best Protein Sources for Fat Loss and Lean Muscle Gain appeared first on Outlaw Fitness.

    Clean Eating appears on the internet 9.6 million times.  It’s no wonder it’s such a pervasive idea in gyms, online, on your televisions and even in the Doctor’s office.  You’ve heard it a thousand times before.

    The notion of frequent small meals throughout the day being beneficial for weight loss is perhaps even more pervasive of a dogma than spot reduction in the fitness world. To this very day, you’ll see mainstream, “reputable” fitness publications publishing articles that proclaim the benefits of spreading your daily calories across 5 or 6 meals […] The post Meal Frequency: How Many Meals Should You Eat a Day? appeared first on Outlaw Fitness.

    For those of you not familiar with spot reduction, it is the idea that one can remove subcutaneous body fat in one particular area of the body by exercising that area.

  • Why Buy Fitness Equipment Locally?

    Bob Lachniet

    We’re all looking for the best deal. We all want to save money. And, sometimes, buying online or from a big-box store may get you a good deal – at least in the short run. But, have you considered the benefits of purchasing fitness equipment from a local store – one that is part of your local community? Whether it’s a small town or in the biggest city, we all prefer to work with people we trust. And, we lament the loss of that local store. That local business that we used to go into, the one where you knew the owner, and knew that although they were building a business, they…
  • Diet Tips – Ways To Stay On Your Diet

    Bob Lachniet
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:18 am
    Part of a healthy fitness-based lifestyle is your diet. But, as much as we all try to be loyal to eating healthy, it can be difficult at times. Here’s some diet tips to help you stay on your diet. Drink plenty of water. Most people are chronically dehydrated – so for that reason alone, you should drink plenty of water. But, before you grab that next snack, try a bottle of water first. Sometimes we get thirst and hunger confused, so drinking water may help that feeling subside. And, even if you do have a snack, you’re likely to consume less than you would without drinking water first! Do…

    Whether it’s the first time you’ve decided to try to get in shape, or it’s been awhile since you last decided to incorporate exercise into your busy life – it can be difficult to know where to start. Even if you have the right equipment, and right workout gear – you also need to know the “right” way to start working out. Here’s some workout tips to make that process easier. Do’s and Don’ts for starting your workout regime: Do’s: Work out every day. Yes, every day. Do it for the first 3-4 weeks. Every day. Why?

  • Healthy Eating: Metabolism Boosting Dinner

    You want to eat healthy. You need to fuel your body, But, you also want to loose weight. And, you don’t want the food you eat to taste like cardboard! It may seem at times that each of these things are mutually exclusive – that it’s not possible to combine each of these diet goals into your meals. Fortunately, with a little planning, it can be done! Spicer foods, such as those that use chilies, can boost your metabolism, helping you burn fat while you are also fueling your body. And, with the right ingredients, you can help fuel muscle growth while giving you the energy you need to not…

    If your pressed for space, and don’t have room for a rack of dumbbells, PowerBlocks may be the perfect dumbbell system! It’s important to incorporate resistance training into your exercise routine. Resistance training helps improve muscle tone, increases your metabolism to burn fat, and builds strength that helps not only with your overall exercise regime, but also gives you additional energy to get through the day. And, while a gym may have a great selection of dumbbells for strength training, it’s not practical to convert your home into a weight room. With PowerBlock dumbbells, you…

    Maybe your doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or best friend told you Yoga would be good for you. You have heard so much about Yoga; it seems that Yoga is a "cure" for almost anything. The more you hear, the more confusing it is to understand what Yoga is all about.   Should you go out and buy a Yoga book? What would be the best Yoga book to buy? If you visit the local book store, you see hundreds of Yoga books, CD's, DVD's, card decks, and kits.

  • 7 Yoga Myths Busted!

    19 Aug 2015 | 7:36 am
    I was at the store with a friend the other day. We were buying him a new yoga mat. The man in line ahead of us asked, "Oh, you're into yoga?" and of course we started talking about how awesome yoga is. I - being the yoga teacher and yoga advocate that I am - suggested he try yoga. He says, "I can't do yoga. I'm too old. I'm not flexible, and I'm not a skinny white woman."   It was very hard for me to control my frustration with this comment! Yoga is for EVERYBODY! You don't have to be young, white, skinny, female, flexible, rich, or a stay-at-home-mom to be able to do yoga! But I hear these…

    I have had a really big last few weeks in the world of sport, both with racing and training but instead of dwelling on race reports I thought I would share with you my ‘knowledgeable insights’ of triathletes aka my opinions that have no justifiable background. Sock Porn- Start cycling and socks are not just socks. You can tell so much about an athlete by the socks they are wearing, or assume you know a lot about them anyway. They must be of the right length, not too low so you don’t see enough of the sock and not too high so they cover the well-defined calved (highlighted in point2).

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…

So, I figured it would be a great idea to share other fitness transformation stories that would be a source of motivation and encouragement to as many people as possible. If you would like to share your fitness transformation story on Nats & Fitness, please send an email to…

    17 Aug 2015 | 3:36 pm
    Ok so I wasn't going to even give you an update on Cize because I just knew this wasn't going to be my kind of workout. I figured I'd buy it, try out a few of them, do some dancing with my kids for fun and then shelve it away for someday when I was in a dancing mood (which is pretty much never when it comes time to workout.)You see I know myself. I'm the kind of person who likes the intensity and the don't-talk-just-do style of Insanity. I want weights to shape and lean out. I'm just not the dancing type... or so I thought. I'll admit, I went into this with a bit of a crappy attitude and…

My own expectations of myself were so high and unforgiving that the smallest slip registered like a devastating failure in my book.Every time I got on a good kick and started eating better and working out, I'd get all pumped up, those good endorphins would be pumping and then it would all come crashing down after a weekend of bad eating,…

    Tom
    24 Aug 2015 | 4:13 am
    One question I frequently hear from many different people is “what is the best cardiovascular exercise for the fast burning of body fat?” My answer is typically always the same, as my own personal experiences have shown me that sprint intervals for fat loss are some of the best exercises on the list. However, I have discovered over the years that many men are still mistakenly expecting to lose weight by doing low-impact cardiovascular routines for approximately half an hour, such as cycling, running or jogging. The latter are not what I mean when I say “sprinting.” Of…

    For most of us fitting in a workout into our busy schedule can be quite a challenge. While you may take the time and effort to do just that, perhaps you are not thinking about the nutrition that your body requires pre and post workout. Trainers and nutritionists recommend that you enjoy healthy and nutritious pre workout snacks as well as post workout snacks. They have a clear and specific function and should not be neglected at any cost. Pre workout snacks aim to offer your body the nutrition and energy it requires to facilitate optimal performance during your workout. On the other hand,…

    Calves are among one of the smaller and more neglected muscle groups amongst fitness buffs. Calves workouts are usually either neglected or not done with the sort of intensity as workouts designed to target other body parts and muscle groups (usually larger ones). As such, the gains that are experienced in said larger muscle groups are not the usually evident in the calves. Still, there are many great exercises for calves that can help you get the results you desire.

    The challenge in any workout program is doing everything YOU want to do in the time that YOU have. I know one of the biggest struggles for most people is finding the time to train and workout. Or if you have the time, not being able to execute everything you want in that time frame; which is typically an hour, or less. So what are your options? You could work faster to get it all done, you could have someone help you program more efficient training, or you can do what I do… Program your training in blocks.

All of this was posted on my Instagram account that you can find below. Among the main discoveries of this summer were the veggie burgers from Gardein. I usually buy them from Costco.

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…

Perhaps back in the 80s and 90s this was feasible. At that time this circuit training workouts are being promoted heavily. The major benefit of circuit training was that it only took two or three -- 30 minute workout sessions per week to get in incredible shape.

    Wow. We’re already nearing mid-July. Where does the time go?! I hope your summer is awesome so far. :) Summer has kept me super busy but it hasn’t kept me from my workouts.

  • The Dangers of Hyperventilation (And CrossFit Social Media)

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:00 am
    A recent Facebook post by CrossFit HQ underlined the importance of responsible social media use. When we were kids, we all had contests in the pool to see who could hold his or her breath the longest. That’s a rite of passage as a kid in summer, claiming your spot as the reigning champ of underwater breath holding.

If he could stay ahead of Smith, Fraser would be the Fittest Man on Earth, a title he had nearly held the year before also until Rich Froning proved again why he is the best.  But Fraser fell apart on the deficit handstand push-ups and Smith went on to win it all, leaving Fraser in second again. No reps are the quickest and most punishing way competitors lose.   However, for all but the most elite it doesn’t happen at the Games, it happens at the Open or Regionals or a local meet.  There…
  • Olympic Lifting For Rugby Performance

    Colby Knepp
    21 Aug 2015 | 2:06 am
    Rugby is a game of explosive movement within a paradigm that tests an athlete’s mental and physical stamina. The ability to repeatedly perform explosive movements like sprinting, jumping and tackling requires a large of amount of absolute strength and the ability to quickly translate that strength into power. If you look at any instance of acceleration, a fast clear out at a ruck, or especially a ribcage compressing tackle, you will notice one commonality between each: explosive extension of the hips and a transfer of energy away from the core/trunk of the athlete. Why Olympic Lifting for…

    It’s not the only one, but there’s a sport out there filled with athletes who pour decades of time, money, and effort into becoming great with little to no recognition. It’s a world, at least at the highest level, with world-class capacity and no credit for it. It’s a world of unsung heroes putting in big league work and performances often without sponsorships, fans, or a paycheck. It’s called strongman, and though this isn’t a pity party for the community of strongman competitors out there, it is a time for a break through. What if I told you that the sport of strongman could…

  • 12 Bodyweight Squat Variations For Bigger and Stronger Legs

    Brian Syuki
    13 Aug 2015 | 9:16 am
    Many people agree that squats are the king of all strength training exercises. And it’s for a good reason. The benefits of squats go beyond increasing lower body strength and size. Squats have a huge hormonal response and greatly impact the nervous system. This effect increases growth of all muscles. Not only that, squats will also improve your flexibility and reduce risk of injury when running. You should always find ways to make your workouts more challenging. These variations will make your workout more interesting and challenge you in different ways. After a month of doing these…

    Burpees…the exercise everyone loves to hate! But nobody can deny its results. Frankly, this is one of the best exercises you’ll ever do. If you don’t like doing a ton of exercises, burpees alone can do the magic. In fact, you can have a fully satisfying workout in less than 20 minutes. But I have to warn you – you need a lot of focus and determination to do 20 burpees. This single exercise works all the muscle groups. It will improve your muscular endurance, increase strength, improve cardiovascular health, and improve coordination. In case you are not familiar with a burpee, to…

    Lack of gym money or time is usually the common barrier for folks who want to get fit. The idea that you need fancy equipment or spend hours in the gym to get fit is wrong. Back in olden days, when there were no weights and machines. People who wanted to get stronger used their own bodies.

    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…

  • Fitness: Self Myofacial Release sounds dirty. What is it, anyway?

    Amy
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:07 am
    Self myofascial release, better known as SMR or foam rolling, is a flexibility technique used to inhibit overactive muscle fibers. Poor posture and repetitive movements (sitting in a chair hunched over a keyboard all day perhaps?) can create dysfunction in our bodies which, when left unchecked, eventually leads to altered movement patterns and joint motions. When the body doesn’t move as it is supposed to, and the wrong muscles have to jump in to support movement you are going to feel it.  Tightness, discomfort, lack of flexibility and even injury are the result. For those of you that like…

    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,…

    Hey all.   Today I want to address one of the biggest and most beautiful changes I have made in my life, one of the most important and meaningful moves one can do, according to my set of beliefs.   It was a beautiful spring day 2 Mays ago (2013), and I was preparing for my 3d Half Marathon gunshot to get us going, it was a beautiful place to run, a 21 Km trail in one of the most green and pleasant places one can ask.

    Testosterone plays a vital part in the body- most especially the male body- and it’s hardly surprising that the huge range of testosterone boosters you’ll find on modern shelves exist. In this article we take a look at the MaxGenics Testosterone Booster, and ask the questions, does it really work and is it actually a scam? Whether you’re taking it as part of a hard core shredding program, or are simply looking to boost the waning testosterone levels that begin to plague the body after 25, the idea that a pill can help give you the edge and help you achieve your goals is tempting.

    Kinesiology tape is now becoming increasing popular, and a surprising number of people are now reliant on it to relieve their aches and pains, but what is it, and how does kinesiology tape work? Kinesiology tape is a method of helping to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and help your muscles to recover.

  • Do You Meditate or Just Daydream?

    Meditation Citadel
    14 Aug 2015 | 1:04 pm
    AS THE torrid heat of the Negeb gave way to the cool of the evening, a young man named Isaac left his tent and went for a stroll “in order to meditate in the field.” What his thoughts were, the Bible does not say. We can be sure, however, that this was no idle, romantic reverie. Isaac’s upcoming marriage meant new and weighty responsibilities. A child produced through this union would continue the lineage leading to the promised “Seed,” or Messiah. It is no wonder, then, that Isaac needed time to sort things out in his mind. But when his meditation was interrupted by the sight of an…
  • Something Far Better Than Meditation

    Meditation Citadel
    23 Jul 2015 | 5:58 pm
    THE claims made for certain meditation techniques are quite attractive: to widen understanding of oneself, to replace negative tendencies and bad habits with positive ones, to overcome anxieties and fears, and, yes, even to improve health. “If we have the proper inner attitude about life’s problems, then we can also solve them,” promises the book Autogenes Training für Fortgeschrittene (Autogenic Training for Advanced Students). Many people hold up “self-realization” and finding the “inner, or real, self” as the cure-all for every problem. But is this a realistic approach?
  • 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?

    Meditation Citadel
    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.

    Back when I was a nipper, 25 years before iTunes reared its head, my parents had a record player that played a bunch of ancient 78rpm records which had been kept in the family. One of those geriatric discs was Coconut Woman by Harry Belafonte, originally released in 1957. I remember spinning that warped and scratchy old disc and hearing about the wonders of coconut water; how it makes you strong like a lion and how you should make sure your daughter drinks it as it’s good for her. Fast forward to the present, with all the hype bursting about the wonders of coconut water and the health…
  • 10 Ways To Power Up Your Push Up: Build Your Chest With Bodyweight Exercises

    Andy C Watson
    21 Aug 2015 | 1:32 pm
    The humble push up (or the press up, depending on where you live) is a great way of building some lean muscle on your chest and triceps without using any equipment. It’s one of the mainstays of any bodyweight workout programme and also has a role to play in circuit training and working out with weights. It works. It’s a simple as that. You can just drop to the floor and rep out a few. But the problem is, the only way to add progression is to do more. You can’t add any weight. And it can get a bit boring doing the same exercise all the time. Well, you can mix it up by dropping a few…

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, to make sure you keep making gains and stay on the long-term path to fitness, you need to take two months off every year.

    There are few items that you need to buy along with your new treadmill, but in our opinion a good quality Treadmill Mat is a must have. These mats are inexpensive, and have many advantages when installed in your home. No matter how good your treadmill, (or how carefully you level it when it arrives), when you start running it will have a tendency to move, especially on hard surfaces. Placing a rubberized treadmill mat directly on the floor below the Treadmill will overcome this. Vibration is a natural result of operating almost any motor, and your treadmill is no exception.

    IT BAND SYNDROME: Something We Don’t Truly Understand Knee joint pain is something we don’t ever want to experience, but something many of us don’t truly understand either. The knee itself is a surprisingly intricate system, with our thigh and shin bones cooperating with the kneecap in order to act as a shock absorber to take the weight of our upper body as we walk, stand, crouch and generally move about. When one of these many working parts takes strain over time or, worse, sustains sudden damage, the entire system can get thrown out of whack and chronic pain can result. There are many…

    I went to Reddit and posted a simple question which stimulated tons of responses. Maybe I should do this more often. After posting the query, I turned off my computer and did not expect any response at all. Probably I expected 2 or 3 people to respond.

I thought to myself, this is a good topic for the blog: Honest responses from people all over the world trying to stay fit amidst a busy day. Well, with all the responses, here are some which are worth reading. I…

    In our previous posts, we have seen different ways to promote healing of joints and simple ways to avoid injuries. What is more important though is to achieve an overall healthy joint; a joint that functions normally. Because of age, injury and certain conditions, normal joint articulation may not be possible. Before it gets too late, it is best to develop habits that will help joints remain healthy or at least become healthy again. Good Habits vs. Bad Habits (Vice) Habits are different from vices. Habits are usually associated with something that is positive, like good habit of eating the…

    We like to think of ourselves in today’s world as more knowledgeable and more able to make wise decisions about almost anything in general, especially matters that have been helped and informed by science. After all, with new information coming in at an increasingly fast rate and at a fairly steady clip, it’s hard to imagine science NOT being constantly developed and constantly informing improvements in the way we do things and see how they work. And yet we continue to make some crucial but critical mistakes, mostly having to do with underestimating the value of certain things that are…

    My interest was piqued when I first heard about Ben Pakulski’s program MI40x. It’s not every day that an IFBB Pro bodybuilder shares their training secrets, much less an entire program. The IFBB is the NBA of bodybuilding, and I had also seen Ben in one of my favorite movies, Generation Iron. Ben was highlighted in the movie for taking a very scientific approach to bodybuilding. So you can understand my excitement when I heard about this program. I had to do an MI40X review to see if it was any good. Ben Pakulski in Generation Iron The basis of MI40X is what BenPak terms Cellular…
  • Why Cardio Is Bad For Fat Loss

    Cardio is a crappy way to lose fat. Unfortunately, the popular opinion says that cardio is almost interchangeable with fat loss. It isn’t working. 69% of American adults are overweight, and 35% are obese. While it is most definitely a good thing to do for cardiovascular health, weight training is far superior to cardio for fat loss. Metabolism Muscle weighs more than fat- everyone knows that. But did you also know that muscle burns calories just by existing? Having muscle mass increases your basal metabolic rate. This means that whether you’re exercising or sitting on the couch…

      A true champion can adapt to anything -Floyd Mayweather Jr. What Is Progressive Overload? If you walk out into a snow storm, you’re gonna get cold. Your body will shiver to cause movement in an attempt to heat yourself up. If you’re too hot you’ll sweat, causing the moisture on your skin to evaporate and cool you like a built-in fan. The human body is miraculous at changing to meet new circumstances. This is the entire idea behind lifting weights – we lift because it presents the body new circumstance that it has to adapt to, resulting in muscle and strength gains. If 135…
  • Change Your Habits in One Minute(ish) Per Day

    Habits are the things we do every day without thought. Your actions define you, so if you blindly allow your habits to guide you along ruts then you’re giving up all control over your life. We’re selling ourselves into slavery to the plans of others or to chance. Human’s need habits – our attention and willpower are scarce currencies to be spent each day. Having habits frees us up to spend our energy on other things. Habits become so ingrained in us that escaping them is like walking through the mud in loose shoes and trying to keep your socks clean. If you just stay put the task…

    So you’re trying to bench press two plates for 8 reps, but you’ve been stalling for weeks (or years). This plateau is a brick wall and you’re beating your head against it trying to break through. If you’ve ever stepped foot into a weight room, you’re familiar with this scenario in one exercise or another. Our bodies are incredibly adept at adapting to stimuli and learning to accommodate anything we throw at them. In other words, your body has become used to your current training regimen and no longer sees any reason to change. Albert Einstein would have been an excellent bodybuilder…
