Dynamic Warm-up

Probably the most important part of the workout is the warm up, it sets everything in motion.  Without it a person can set his/herself up for a potential injury and probably a crappy workout. Make a habit of warming up before every workout.  The following is the benefits of a warm up before exercise:

  • Improve range of motion in muscles.
  • Promote blood circulation through the body
  • Keep yourself from hitting fatigue
  • Gain more muscle control

This is a example of a warm up I take my clients through before their workout.

EPOC, what is it good for!!!

While on the quest for fat loss, many people place a lot of attention on how many calories they will burn in a particular workout session, while forgetting to account for the calories that will be burned because of that workout session. Now without going into a huge rant, I want to explain something, its true you will burn calories whenever you workout after all it does take effort no matter how strong or weak your work ethic is in the gym. But its a interesting thought to comtemplate that after a workout and particulary when you rest how much effort it takes for the body to repair itself from all the micro tears that happen when you workout. Just in case you didn't know the muscles experience micro tears whenever you subject it to anything more difficult than its accustom to and a byproduct it must become stronger to adapt and that takes energy. What this means for you is you burn more calories. Hope that makes sense. Anyway found a great article about EPOC, what it is and how to use it to achieve your fat loss goals.

Only the Strong Survive

I think we all have moments when we feel our best just like we have moments where we feel like shit.  I'm not one who generally likes to train with others unless we have similiar mindsets and goals.  When I did train in a group every so often it was with my partners in crime Bryan Meyer and Hunter Wood.  These guys were beasts.  Damn I miss those days!  A buddy of mine sent me a video me and Bryan made from back in our days at RDV, and I wanted to share it with you.

Yours in strength,

Lean vs Fat Mindset

"Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He think too much:  such men dangerous." - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act 1, Scene 2

I have observed two strong mindsets in life, a lean and fat mindset with variations of the two existing in the middle.  The lean mind has learned to carve away unecessary thoughts that prevent it from accomplishing whatever task or goal it is intended to achieve.  The lean mind is very clear about what it wants and will develop the necessary plan to achieve its end desire.  The lean mind understands no plan is without obstacles, it recognizes them, deals with them but doesn't allow them to side track it from accomplishing its task or goal.  The fat mindset has many thoughts, many of which prevent itself from accomplishing anything of real value other than satisfying it sensual desires.  The fat mind is only interested in instant gratification.  The fat mind wants to give up when obstacles present themselves, it doesn't believe in delaying instant gratification for the sake of accomplishing its task in a timely matter. 

These mindsets and the gray in between exist in many aspects of the human experience (ie, work, nutrition, exercise, relationships etc.).  We all have witness star athletes, business professionals, students or parent(s) who seem to rise above their peers and achieve great things in their life time.  What we don't acknowledge is that they are people just like us who have chosen to not only make the best use of their talents, resources, but perhaps most importantly they have learned to carve away the unecessary fat so they can stay focused on getting the job done.  Fat thinking is comparable to a disease, not only does it do harm to the individual but it also affects others and prevents everyone from being the best they can be.  The excess fat has got to go if we are to live the best life we can live now and for the legacy we hope to leave behind for our family, friends or better yet the next generation.

The next time you have something you really want to accomplish but it just seems its not happening ask yourself am I operating with a lean or fat mindset.  If its a fat mindset look for ways to trim the fat off until its lean.
