Varför kroppen?

Det finns ett sätt att leva livet som fungerar väldigt väl, och det finns sätt som inte fungerar väl.

Vad är det som har mest potential att påverka ditt välmående?

Som jag har nämnt förut är jag mycket inne på de här universala sanningarna.

En av de är det följande:

Det som är närmast dig mest ofta är det som har mest potential att påverka ditt välmående.

Att satsa på de sakerna som har mest potential att påverka ditt välmående är ett test av tro: finns det någonting som kan påverka mig mer än vad någonting annat kan?

Hur nära dig är dina kläder? De är rätt nära, men finns det någonting närmare, som påverkar dig mer intensivt?

Har mat mycket potential att påverka ditt välmående?

Sist, finns det någonting närmare dig än din kropp? Din hjärna(dina tankar)? Finns det någonting ännu närmare?

Det finns definitiv saker längre ifrån dig som du inte är i kontakt med lika ofta som kroppen, hjärnan och..... 

Satsar du mycket på det som har potential att påverka ditt välmående eller är du snarare ute på kanten med ifrågasättbara metoder?

Vad skulle du göra om du ville må som bäst? Ditt mål är att må som bäst generellt, inte att må som bäst medan du gör....

How the Body Works

This is a quick primer on how the body works so you can use that information to get more results in the gym.

Every muscle has a specific function(or a couple). That function is determined by its two end points. Its only job is to shorten the distance between those two end points.

Every muscle and muscle group has a general function. When the distance between those two end points is shortened, you achieve a goal/do a job.

For instance: the core is a group of muscles in the midsection of the body. All of their specific functions are to shorten the distances between their end points. In conjunction, their general function is stabilization. The core is made for stabilization. Some movement, but little.

Sometimes muscles don't do their jobs. That is a problem. If there wasn't a back-up system for that, we would be paralyzed in those movements where the muscle(s) was not doing its job. Fortunately, there is a back-up system. It's called compensation. Compensation is when a muscl…

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…

Comfort Deficit

I was talking to my client the other day about Israel and Mexico and later thought of Hiroshima. This is a sensitive issue obviously but it relates to a problem I see in coaching in a broader sense.

Generally speaking people asking too much of their peers, clients...etc. When there is conflict, people are demanding changes that leave the other parties involved too uncomfortable. People have to feel good and are going to find ways to continue to do it. People are not going to have their sense of well being threatened for long.

In regards to coaching, you can't ask your client to do things that are uncomfortable, not replace that source of comfort, and expect them to succeed long term. Either the change has to be be small and singular in nature, the results of the change have to feel better than before, or something else has to be added back into the picture to get them feeling good again. That's good coaching. It's also what works. Nobody's ever going to be successful b…
