En bra kropp och hälsa är resultatet av ett specifikt sätt att träna, äta, och till och med sova. Det innebär flera förändringar för de flesta människor. Därför är det viktigt att man har ett system eller ett sätt att göra saker och ting så att de går så smidigt som möjligt.


Den här glaset gör att jag kan hälla hela min smoothie i ett glas istället för att behöver hälla flera gånger om. Och, om det bara var lite mindre smoothie idag, kunde jag ha tagit mixern och lagt den i diskhon direkt istället för att ha tagit den med mig till vardagsrummet. Det stora glaset är en del av mitt system.

Ett större del av mitt system är att köpa tillräckligt med mat så att jag har det jag behöver hemma mer ofta än inte. En till del av systemet är att vakna och lägga mig i tid, så att jag har tid på dagen att göra klart allt jag behöver göra. Saker behöver bli uppsatt så att de fungerar bättre för mig. Om de inte är det, kommer jag behöva använda mer energi än vad jag vill för att få saker gjort. Jag skulle kunna göra det, men det är inte kul. It has to run smooth.

Cook your biceps!

A lot of my guys have arm issues and I am sure it is the same for a lot of trainers. Biceps work is fun to do and, contrary to what a lot of modern day trainers still believe, direct bicep work is necessary. It used to be that people would let their clients' heavy back work take care of their biceps as well, but I have only found that to be a failure in all of my clients, maybe because of the first major point I make in this article(see below). For us drug free, health focused trainers, it is important to have as much information as possible at our disposal so we can get whatever edge we can. So, without further ado: let's cook the biceps!

The area of the body that you think of as the biceps, the front of the upper arm, has three main functions. The issue is that the primary function of the biceps might not be what you think it is. Upon researching for this article, I learned that there is a considerable amount of disagreement on the subject of whether or not the biceps primar…

The Lion and the Slave: Coaching Backward

"I was at [the] top of my game when I was in combat....To me, it's a little distressing to realize I was at my best doing something as terrible as war."-Robert Rheault US special forces. *source at end of article 
That PBS Vietnam war documentary re-confirmed my now strong beliefs about the subject I have written about below: forgiveness. A lot of those guys mix up some very good feelings with some very bad things. That causes problems later in life and requires a process similar to the one I am suggesting in this article. 
There are two well known kid's stories that represent the theme of this blogg article very well: the Lion and the Slave, and the Pea and the Princess. The idea is that you have to get rid of the bad, not just keep focusing on the good. "Repentence and forgiveness" is what it is called in old world talk, but is really the process of learning from, getting to the truth, and letting go of. 

You are limited by your beliefs. Your beliefs come…

The Perfect Butt

This subject contains within it one of my pet peeves: people searching endlessly for the right exercise to build their butts.

The glutes are the biggest muscle group in the body and absolutely critical to your well being. If it is hard to find an exercise that really works yours, then something is wrong, unfortunately. That'd be like someone having a hard time finding an exercise that works their heart or something. It just shouldn't be that difficult. It happens to be the case for a lot of people out there though, and it just so happens that it is an easily resolvable issue for most of them. 

This brings me to my first point: make all of your leg exercises more glute dominant by plugging of some of your energy leaks.
I feel compelled to inform you that the primary reason the glutes are not developed in most people is because of inactivation which is the result of core instability and recipricol inhibition, which is when a muscle group is recieving less signal from the brain and…
