There is no way around this, squatting is an essential movement. When you get up from your chair, you’re squatting.
Sit down on the toilet, squatting. Asian and aboriginal cultures famously hang out in the bottom of a squat position instead of chairs even.
Jumping from one or two feet? Squatting!
Most everything you do with your lower body is a variation of a squatting type movement.
Most every sport requires a variation of squatting — or a deadlift variation, a step-up variation or a lunge variation. [click to continue…]
My Latest (and biggest?) Project to Date…
Basically in fitness, unfortunately most exercise and diet programs only ever give you a list of things to do.
They never show you how to go through the process to achieve your desired outcome.
That’s where I come in with coaching. [click to continue…]
READ TO THE END. There is a recipe for this healthy pizza option at the bottom of this post!
Well the word is out, the U.S. Congress has a bill in place that could effectively make pizza classify as a vegetable for kids and continue to be served (along with French Fries) in the education system as a vegetable.
As Michael Corleone would say, “just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in!”
I have been thinking for a few years now that we are finally starting to get somewhere realizing that deep fried foods loaded with trans-fat probably aren’t good for our children.
There was a big push, particularly in Canada to remove junk food from the public education system — and if you think French Fries or Pizza are not junk, I’m surprised you’re reading this. [click to continue…]
I wanted to create a simple resource for all my readers based on my nutritional philosophy, which is pretty simple overall and so it should be.
If you did number one 90% of the time or higher, you’d probably get incredible fat loss results and if you don’t, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), we can troubleshoot it for you. This is a quick run-down of the essential questions you should ask yourself before every meal.
I’m giving out a free cheat-sheet here, no strings attached, uncopyright, please fold it up and keep it with you. Refer to it regularly for 90 days and let me know if you make some progress. [click to continue…]
I’ve spent ten hours and forty-eight minutes watching these, not including the fact that many I’ve watched more than once.
TED is a great example of useful video in my opinion, but as someone pointed out at the TEDx event I attended last weekend, it’s not just about ideas being spread, hopefully some people take action on some of these ideas too.
In fact I went through a period in my life not too long ago where I made a point of watching one new TED video each day as a scheduled break in the day.
I keep a running Evernote…err…ugh…note, on all the TED talks that I’ve watched that I found particularly interesting and that I would possibly watch again.
