Alright lets start this post off by saying I'm not talking about getting high. So if that was your thinking you should probably just leave haha. What I am talking about is getting into crazy good shape and fitness through these few things below. You're probably wondering why the hell I'm posting this here. Well it's simple, this will help your business in the long run. Good nutrition and a good exercise routine equates to a sharper mind. A sharper mind = more money ha. Okay... I used to play premier soccer, played through some college and later stopped because my interests changed. So lets just say I've always been interested in new and better ways to get fit. I've completely changed my diet from what I used to eat. I always wondered why I would get headaches after long enduring matches. Once I discovered it was my diet with the rigorous exercise that was causing my blood sugar levels to go crazy which in turn caused the headaches I realized that something needed to be changed. Basically all I ate was shit, and I'm surprised I could hang with everyone on the pitch. So I started to change things a little by little, headaches disappeared, I became faster and could outlast most everyone on the field. Personally I think one of the keys to crazy endurance is by getting your blood sugars normalized and doing a certain type of exercise. The second part is pretty easy, however it's the first part people have trouble with and I'll admit it's hard. Especially if you live in America where we pride ourselves on a SAD diet (standard american diet). So alright first is the exercise. The exercise I'll share with you can make you lose crazy weight, get ripped, build muscle without lifting weights, build massive endurance, build powerful lungs, and strengthen your heart. Most people think that to lose weight you have to exercise for like 2 hours straight everyday. This is not the case, in fact the food choices I'll later talk about helped my dad lose 26 pounds without ever exercising at all. This isn't some crash diet or something that will hurt you in the long run, it's actually the healthiest diet you can consume. But back to the exercise. The kind of exercise I'm talking about is a type of interval training with a twist. I've always found it kind of funny how people think to build endurance you have to run tons of miles every single day. Let me tell you that in my soccer days I was running 10+ miles a day and I have better endurance today running less than 1. Long distance running isn't good for your heart contrary to popular belief. It actually shrinks your lung power and burns muscle. Have you seen long distance runners lately? They look like death is just around the corner. Now compare them to a sprinter like Michael Johnson. I can guarantee that Michael can also run long distance if he had to with no problems. So the idea is simple. You are running in short bursts with high intensity, the idea is to get you panting uncontrollably. This is the key to lung power to keep you going for long distances. So here is a typical schedule I do for my runs, however I've been doing this for a while so you need to work up to it. The book I'll provide down below will expand on this, but this is the general idea. This workout is for running however it can be applied to biking, eliptical or whatever. You'll get more workouts from the book below. Day 1 Warm up for 2 minutes - I just jog around to get the blood flowin Set 1 1/4 Mile Sprint - 70% speed 3 minute recovery - extremely slow almost a walking pace Set 2 1/4 Mile Sprint - 80% speed 3 minute recovery - extremely slow almost a walking pace Set 3 1/4 Mile Sprint - 90% speed 3 minute recovery - extremely slow almost a walking pace Set 4 1/8 Mile Sprint - 100% speed 3 minute recovery - extremely slow almost a walking pace Set 5 1/8 Mile Sprint - 110% speed like someone is chasing you with a gun! 3 minute recovery - extremely slow almost a walking pace Then you will decrease the distance you run in further days but also you are increasing your intensity on the sprints. The one above is a bit more advanced and I don't recommend starting on that. But in the book below you can get the beginner workouts and all the others. That is the general idea of the workout. I also run as close to barefoot as possible, this has also greatly increased my speed. I wear things called Vibram FiveFingers. It's like going barefoot, but it has just enough protection to keep you from skinning your feet. Sprinting barefoot will make your legs look like they're sculpted out of stone. Your calves will get absolutely ripped and cut. The main reason most people can never develop their calve muscles is because if you wear shoes you don't use them! The first time you run barefoot you'll know it because your legs will be sore as hell. But that is a good thing, your calves have been neglected for far too long. However proceed with caution and build it up. Running close to barefoot is totally different. It forces you to adopt correct running form. You will no longer be hitting your heals first, which is incorrect anyways. You should be hitting the balls of your feet and making no contact with your heals and the ground. Watch some clips of Michael Johnson in slow mo, you'll notice that his body is slightly ahead of his feet when they hit the ground. You'll also notice that the balls of his feet are really the first thing that hits the ground not the heal like most people that run in shoes. THIS IS WHERE THE PAIN COMES FROM. It's not the running that causes the pain, it is the running form that causes it. I run in my FiveFingers which is pretty much barefoot on CONCRETE with no pain at all. So if you have knee pain or anything like that when you run, more than likely it can be dissipated by correcting your form and getting rid of your shoes. Alright, you can PM me with any questions about runnin n stuff. Lets move on to diet. I think I'll make this into another post.... so gimme a sec.
