Objective Policies

I'm coming on having lived in both Sweden and the United States, respectively, exactly half of my life. With more perspective, I have decided that there is a good way to govern a country and neither one of them are doing it. I am in love with the original American idea and I am in love with Swedish environmentalism. I hate abuse. Both Swedes and Americans abuse their rights. The issue is, of course, that the things they are abusing aren't, in fact, theirs.

In the future, I think everyone is going to find that the most pleasant place to live is the one where everyone takes care of themselves as well as the things that they commonly own. I think in the future, governments or states will hold themselves to things that the people "own."

The deliciously Scandinavian idea that we all own the environment is one it doesn't take a genius to figure out: you pollute your water, you pollute my water. You pollute your air, you pollute my air.

Niether is the idea of American individualism hard to prove: Our lives are all ours to such an extent that even people from the worst possible, almost unthinkable, circumstances can and do succeed on a daily basis. They are not all becoming millionaires but health, spiritual wealth, and love are all ours for the taking. Swedes actually don't think that is true. I think the idea of welfare is a dying one.

Americans are single handedly ruining the Earth we live on with destructive environmental practices. Swedes are spreading depression and complacency telling everyone it is well-being. The one is not owning enough. The other is owning too much.

Travelling has taught me that my general impression of wherever I am is highly dependant on simply how clean and tidy it is: how well are they taking care of this place? A lot of well being comes from the general environment you reside in, not necessarily climate, rather atmosphere; your impression of the stuff that isn't "stuff"...how the public lawns look, how much litter there is lying on the ground, how much graffiti there is. After that, the behavior of the inhabitants: are they taking care of theirs or are they blaming everything on someone else? "It's not MY FAULT!"



You can determine the future by determining what the truth is. The truth is that we all own the atmosphere we reside in and the Earth we live on. We as individuals all own our mental health to a great degree and just as much our physical-although, we are not as conscious of it at the moment. No one is going to keep paying for these things once they realize that someone else owns them. Everyone is going to start paying for things like the environment once they realize that they all own it.

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…
