When it comes to Health and/or Fitness, many of us seek the quick fix. These are called short-term solutions. Typically, these are best reserved for emergencies. These days, this is now the norm. Some call it “hacking”. I’m all for shortcuts but only when appropriate. If there’s one thing i know, you CANNOT shortcut health. If you really want to see for yourself, knock yourself out. I’m just trying to save you the trouble. Also know, i can’t recommend it. Besides it being unhealthy, it can also waste valuable time, time that we will never get back. Why spend a lifetime continually chasing the same things? Instead, i recommend finding focus, balance, and simplicity. Below is a video i did yesterday. I did it in one take. I talk about 10 principles that i think are very important, essential and the fundamentals of most everything. Wanna lose some body fat? Gain some muscle? Be healthier? Live longer? Increase your athletic or job performance? Most everyone wants these things. I recommend taking the high road. Life is short but it’s just long enough to benefit from doing a few things well and with consistency.

This video is the second phase of my Foundations series. The first phase consisted of 3 videos. They can be found on this YouTube page and my official personal training website, http://www.BLUESKYSTRONGBOX.COM.

In this video, i talk about 10 principles that i feel are essential to health as well as fitness. So, regardless of what your goal(s) are, be that Fat Loss, improving General Health, increasing Lean Muscle or a performance goal for a job or sport, these 10 principles are important.

Look, i know this video is a bit long. It’s longer than i wish but sometimes it is simply just not possible to do a short video. Sorry!

Here is my list:

1. Get enough Rest/Sleep
2. Create a 5-minute Morning Ritual. Do it every day.
3. Walk and move your body as much as you can each day.
4. Exercise regularly. Focus on a balance of the big 3: flexibility, strength, and stamina.
5. Find balance and harmony with everything in your life.
6. Drink enough water each day so that your urine is clear or close.
7. Eat more plants and less of everything else.
8. Eat more variety and balance of all other food.
9. Eat less overall. Try going longer between meals.
10. Keep it simple.
