The Warm Up

Heat up the body with your choice of method. If you`re using a cardio machine the intensity should be low and you should have a sweat going for at least a couple minutes before your done. Then I like mobilization to increase the range of motion. Mobilization is a form of dynamic stretching. Never do static stretching before an activity; static stretching (holding stretches) is good for a cool down after your workout.

A Couple Cool Tricks To Get Abs

What I want to talk about today is the types of exercises that you need to do to get the abs showing and then a couple cool tricks that makes a huge difference. The best exercises to do for weight loss, strength, and for building muscle mass are the same. They are called compound exercises. Basically, you are not isolating muscles like a body builder of the 70’s. You are working as much of your body at once as you can in various powerlifting movements with body building sets, reps, and rest times.

Want The Secret of Happiness? Read This.

I want to start with the physical properties that create happiness first because without the physical capability of being happy nothing else matters. 70% of our neurotransmitters are created in our gut. Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride is a Russian neuroscientist that noticed all her patients had gut issues and knew the neuro issues had to be related. She studied what we now call the microbiome and created what she calls the GAPS diet to heal the gut. Many doctors have followed suit and agree that it is extremely important to maintain a healthy gut to avoid neuro problems including depression and anxiety. Take care of your crap factory and be happy. I wrote many articles on this subject so please feel free to browse my blog.

Your Body Is Like Boots Or Hearts At 38 Years Old

I was talking to a med-school student who showed me a study he said I would be interested in. The study quantified biological aging of 1,037 people from Dunedin, New Zealand. Scientists tracked the pace of aging using 18 biomarkers of different organ systems including pulmonary, periodontal, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, and immune function. They studied people born in 1972-73 until they were 38 years old with not a lot of big surprises. Of course, people aged at different paces with 28 being the youngest biological age and 61 being the oldest.

Should You Vaccinate?

I have been posting anti-vaxx articles on F-book. The truth is I am not really antivaccine; I am really just pro-health. I spent 11 years working as an EMT and stomach problems are the most common issue we see coming into the ER. About 50% of those leave the hospital undiagnosed and treated with pain killers. I have seen the overuse of antibiotics on myself and others, the bubble packs full of meds for old people and some not so old people, and the abuse of pain meds.
