Like it or not, there is only one major reason why most of us would ever not eat what we want and exercise regularly. It is to improve they way we look. Yes, there are absolutely other important reasons but that one is at the top of the list for most humans. This means that knowing how to improve the way we look in the shortest amount of time is also desirable. How about (re)thinking this whole equation in complete reverse… WHAT IS THE FASTEST WAY TO GET FAT? When looking at things from such a perspective, some things may become more clear. Even if this doesn’t apply directly, it can still be a great little exercise to do from time to time. Reverse engineering can be VERY helpful in any situation if or when things become unclear and fuzzy. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox #austinpersonaltrainer #healthandwellness #healthandfitness #fatloss

Simple Plans are always best!

March 1, 2019

Have you clarified any and all Goal(s) yet for 2019? Try to. It’s the middle of February already. Devise a simple, doable plan. Build in confidence. Write stuff down so it’s very clear and manageable. Execute. I always like to write down my weekly exercise schedule (top left), among other things. I look at it every day for clarity before the workout. It really helps keep me focused. I’m confident because I created a plan and schedule that I know I can easily do AND understand. I love seeing/reading other folk’s “simple plans”. Top right & Bottom Left are 2-day strength plans from Mike Boyle & Zach Even-Esh respectively. Bottom right was my Resting Heart Rate last week. It had creeped up in the 5o’s for most of December, most likely due to a lack of quality sleep. Never underestimate the fundamentals or simplicity. My daily mantra: POSITIVITY + SIMPLICITY + CREATIVITY. Have a plan. Put it into action. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox #positivitysimplicitycreativity

Strength Training in Space

The negative effects on the body while in space can be dramatic. The lack of gravity can leave muscles & bones under-stimulated, resulting in a serious decrease in strength and bone density (think… NOT being able to walk.) Nowadays, everyone spending time at the Space Station is required to do exercise, especially Strength Training and Aerobic Training. While they have the option to do a variety of different exercises using a custom resistance setup, the DEADLIFT is an important exercise because it strengthens many of the body’s muscles involved with maintaining upright Posture. Even with the aid of gravity here on Earth, many humans do not get enough weight-bearing activity to maintain optimal levels of Muscular Strength and Bone Density. These are just a few reasons why Resistance Training is so important. In the late 18oo’s/early 19oo’s, the Deadlift exercise was actually called the HEALTH-LIFT because of it’s many known health benefits. Everyone needs to Strength Train. The Deadlift can be a great choice for many. There are many different ways to do a Deadlift that can be safe and effective for most any human, regardless of age, gender, health status, fitness level or experience. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox

Seek Balance with Nutrition

We are what we eat. We are also what we think and do. When it comes to nutrition, very few subjects arouse more confusion, conflict and controversy. It would seem that none of us can eat anything anymore because everything is “bad” for us. Many of us already have terrible relationships with food. Many of us don’t cook either and if so, very seldom. Of course, the reasons are complex. All I know is that the last thing we need is more negative talk about food. I look around some days and all I see is a new era of EXTREMELY picky eating. It’s a privilege to have any food to eat and being too picky about it all the time is not good for survival. Food is not to be feared. Food is not the enemy. It’s ok to make healthier choices but it’s important that it always be accompanied by a healthy relationship with food. Most us already know that we should limit fast food, fried food, overly-processed food, sugary and salty snacks but we ignore it anyway. We are also well aware that we should be eating more vegetables and fruits but we ignore all that too. So no, I’m not a fan of DIETS. I’m a fan of nutrition education. I’m a fan of trying something out for a while to see how it works. My recommendation is for you to do the same. My preferred nutrition source is PRECISION NUTRITION (website). I’ve also grown to respect the work of Dr. Michael Gregor, who has a great book called HOW NOT TO DIE and a great website, NUTRITION FACTS (website). Yes, I still eat meat, pizza, chips, cookies, and fried food. But i also eat a ton of plants most of the time and you should too. This makes everything SO much easier right from the start. Improving nutrition habits is a process and takes time. Start slow, build strong!
