Betty White can still rock so can you!!

I love all these older folks who still have a good spark of life in them. This is how life should be. I looked at the Yahoo news and saw that Betty White and Axl Rose got together to help a zoo. Only in America will you see an older lady rocking and rolling. I think this is awesome. We should enjoy every bit of our life. All you you young fat and "sick" people should be inspired by people like Betty White and Jack Lalanne. These people made it into their "golden" years. Which don't seem too golden for a lot of older people by the way. And they still have vitality and enjoy their life's. My hat is off to people like this they appreciate life and have taken good care of themselves and it shows.

I like to make this juice with red apples and carrots. I juice them together and I will add one spear of broccoli in to the mix. Then I will make a puree with Mango, Papaya, and banana. Mix these all together in the same bottle and you have the breakfast juice blend. I also have a juice blend that I use in the afternoon. I will post this recipe tomorrow. In the mean time train hard and smart!!

The holistc approach to dieting down Awesome!!!

Allot of people diet down for different reasons. You might be doing it for a bodybuilding show or maybe you just want to lose some extra weight. Either way as with many things there is a healthy way and unhealthy to do it. I have recently stumbled on to a good plan that has helped me diet down and lean out and it is as healthy as possible. I call it the holistic approach to leaning out. I had dieted using plain food and diet everything in the past and yeah it worked but I felt tired weak and just plain BLAH. This method is awesome you use two different juice formulas that I have put together and only eat whole natural food. Vegetables, meat and fruit. One of the juice formulas is for early in the day and the other one is for later. The good part is that you can consume protein from lean sources. I am loving it so far.

Change things up to spice up your training program.

Much like other people who are advanced in their training regiments I was having trouble keeping motivated not too long ago. I just did not seem motivated to train and it was harder and harder for me to get in the gym and train. I was thinking what is wrong with me? I have been training my whole adult life and now I am not motivated to do what I love to do. I had a kind of eureka moment I have always been doing traditional gym type exercises. So no matter how I would change or do something different it was getting stale. I started incorporating unconventional movements and exercises 2-3 times a week. Not only did my body respond but my mind did to. I will do an MMA style workout for endurance twice a week. This is a very good replacement for cardio boredom by the way. Then a friend of mine has introduced me to the strong man lifts with the yolk, logs and strongman dumbbells. That is one hell of a workout by the way. Anyway my point in saying all this is variety is the spice of life even in the gym. If you are getting stuck in a rut and bored experiment a little.

Pepper sprayed at Disney land? C'mon people find a healthy way to vent.

I looked at the news this morning and I see some fat guy getting pepper sprayed by some poor Disney land security guard that had to protect the guests. Really lets get drunk and take our petty little frustrations out on some poor people at Disneyland. Can you say stress management? Why don't you put down the wings and the pizza and get to the gym? You will get healthier while reducing stress. The funny thing about it is that he is not the only person that has this problem there are several people that are like this. If you don't believe me look at all the road rage when you drive. If there were more people there in better shape this guy would have been taken care of in a second. Heck he might have been better at managing his own stress and not gone off if he just took better care of himself. So keep up the exercise reduce stress and have fun when you are supposed to have fun.

Bad Sleep Linked to Alzheimer's - ABC News

This is interesting. You need rest especially when you are training and pushing your body. This just proves how important rest really is to keeping you healthy. I always recommend at least eight hours of sleep and maybe even a nap with that amount of sleep. Another good thing to do is to take a supplement like ZMA. You can look it up and find it in the blog. It helps you sleep and recover naturally. Melatonin is also good to help reset your sleep schedule if you travel. you take it 30 min before bed and it will reset your sleeping habits to help kill jet lag and things like that. Anyway enough ranting check out the article. Bad Sleep Linked to Alzheimer's - ABC News

Do your cardio outside added benifit!!!

I know we live in a technological society that is all about machines, Technology and gadgets but sometimes older is better. For instance if you run out side vs. running on a treadmill it is harder. Do you know why? The reason is because you are moving %100 of you weight with your muscles. If you use a treadmill the ground is moving under your feet which is helping you to move forward. I am not saying to abandon your cardio(aerobic exercise) if you like to use machines. All I am saying is that change is good and you will get a better workout by running outside at least every once and a while. Plus you get all the other benefits of running outside like the sun and fresh air. So I would encourage everyone to get outside and take advantage. Get the most out of your aerobic exercise.

Juice to a Healthier you!!!

I am not talking about drugs just good old fresh fruit and vegetable juice. I have used fresh fruit and vegetable juices for years and enjoy their benefits. You get more energy and feel healthier. The juice also makes you feel full so you don't fill up on needless empty calories as much. There are so many benefits to adding this to your lifestyle I can hardly describe them. I will cover more of these at a later date. In the mean time go get a good juicer and start juicing every day. Your body will thank you.

Diet pills can kill. You won't have to worry about your weight if you are dead!!!

When are people going to learn that all this pill popping and medicating everything is not the way to go? There are pills for everything and most of them will kill you or permanently mess you up while delivering the "desired" effect. Now they are saying some drug called mediator killed 1,300 people in Europe. If people would just start being more active and incorporate an exercise plan into there life combined with a good whole food based diet they would not have to worry. Not to mention the fact that this action would make them healthier and have a better quality of life. But no lets get doped up and addicted to prescription pills right. Here is a link to the article:

Be like the oldest thing on earth Eat and live and train for a long good life!!

The news has recently announced that the oldest living thing in the world is a patch of seaweed of the Mediterranean sea. Check it out. That seaweed has one big good thing going for it. It is 10 miles long by the way. It follows the K.I.S.S method.Not the big hair band but it keeps it simple stupid! That's what would help so many people in their day to day life if they could just keep it simple. It makes things so much easier and reduces stress. If you just stop for a minute and think about things before you act you will notice this to. I don't plan on being 200,000 years old but I will say this again. Sometimes simple is truly best.

Superbowl, Chicken wings and beer? Proceed with caution!!

Alright I know that a lot of people are going to meet with friends and take in the Superbowl this weekend. Here is the thing. It is always a celebration and there are always loads of junk to consume. So should you not celebrate? Of course not but a better method of handling this would be to treat it like a cheat meal for you. You know that one time during the week when you go and treat yourself to whatever you want to eat. Make that your Superbowl party day. If you are more dedicated to to your program and do not want to stray off of your program then you can turn to some healthier alternatives. Like instead of making buffalo wings make buffalo chicken breast. Drink light beer instead of regular and have some party trays with veggies. That would be a good way to keep up the fight. Just because you want to take part in the festivities does not mean you have to throw away your hard work.

Want to get rid of some stress? Work out!!!

Every day I go to work and every day I see people "stressed". They are all possessed and concerned about so many little things in their lives that it can lead to depression and lack of activity. One good way to get rid of stress is to exercise. It will help to clear your mind and make you relax and see things for they are. We are becoming more in active as a society every year. Then we rely on stimulants to give us "energy". If your body was in good shape you would not have to rely on stimulants like caffeine and nicotine to keep you going. Your metabolism would already be in high gear. As much time as people dedicate to other things through out there week exercise should be part of your focus. Get up, get out and enjoy your life. Do not live to work. Work to live.
