The Myths and Truths of Working Out

The Myths and Truths of Working Out

There is information overload about exercise and diets everywhere you turn.

How are we supposed to define the “truth” from the fiction? Then somethings that were good for us 5 years ago, 5 months ago, heck 5 days ago no longer are!

What is “really” good for us, and what is not going to get us to our results and wasting our time in the process?

Myth:

In order to get those killer abs you should do a 1000 sit-ups everyday …

Truth:

Diet has a lot to do with getting the tummy you want. Also do a combination of these core strengthing exercises and see […] Read more

You Have Control… Just Like Gravity

You Have Control… Just Like Gravity

On Sunday’s I like to get outside, go to the park and do some unconventional workouts. One of the exercises I’ve tried recently was to pick up a 70-pound bag of water and hoist it over my shoulder. It is a difficult exercise because the water is moving inside the bag, and gravity is doing its job of pulling the bag of water back to the ground. And gravity is a relentless foe.

No matter how much you hate gravity, no matter how much you believe that it is unfair, and no matter how much you believe that you should not […] Read more

Train Your Brain Like You Train Your Body…

Train Your Brain Like You Train Your Body…

Whatever happens to you in with your life is a direct reflection of two things… Attitude and Activity.

They both affect each other. Your attitude will effect your activity. Your activity will effect your attitude.

When my attitude is great is it very simple and easy to do the activity I need to stay productive, have fun and accomplish what I desire for the day. When my attitude is poor it can feel like moving a mountain to get anything done and the day slugs along.

I view training the brain and the emotions similar to training the body. We need to move […] Read more
