My Favorite Pre-Workout

My Favorite Pre-Workout

I want to tell you about the greatest pre-workout I have ever discovered. First, I am going to bash all other pre-workout crap. The first pre-workout I ever took was ephedrine with caffeine and ASA stack. I quickly got addicted to this stack. There is nothing good for you in this stack. They all have side effects. The ephedrine and caffeine don’t let you sleep the ephedrine as well has a history of causing heart problems.  ASA causes leaky gut syndrome.

Sunshine, Outdoors, and Everything Great!

Dammit! We only have a few weeks left of summer. Make the most out of this time right now. Get outside and enjoy the weather while we still have some nice sunshine! I want to talk about how beneficial the sun is along with nature and being outside in general.

Why You Should Be Camping For A Living

I had a long busy shift at my EMS job the other day. I was reminded of the pleasures of having a demanding stressful job full time. For the whole day I was able to put my whole life on the back burner and not worry about my problems and it was fun. I theorized this might be why we live our lives in such high chronic stress mode.

Stress Relief

Stress can be explained using the scenario where we are walking from our igloo and we see a giant polar bear growling at us. The heart rate increases, blood pressure goes up, blood vessels expand, muscles are being fed energy from fuels that are being made from stored fats, the respiratory drive goes up, we sweat to keep us cool because we’re about to exert ourselves, the blood thickens to clot faster than normal, we produce inflammatory chemicals to activate our immune cells to start mobilizing for tissue repair, the attention centre in the brain lights up; it’s a massive change in our system. It’s all designed to deal with a clearly perceived environmental threat. Have you seen that Leonardo Dicaprio movie "The Revenant"? This type of thing used to happen.

Stress is one of the biggest obstacles in fitness and health; it is the number one cause of workplace absenteeism all over the world. Ironically, work is the major cause of stress. The Japanese actually have a term, “karoushi”, which defines death due to workplace stress.
