Doing Memorial Day/Travel Workouts the "Right Way"

Do yourselves a favor and read Tim's Blog Post. Tim is the founder or Original Strength and a mentor of ours. He keeps it simple, concise and to the point: Don't let a holiday weekend or summer travel keep you from moving. Also, don't let it stress you about how hard it needs to be. You can rack up some serious "time under movement" and not feel like you got hit by a truck afterwards and sore for days.

Follow his sequence laid out in the blog post:

Basically this is an ascending to descending ladder. This video link will detail all three movements. Please note the video uses a rocking push up. Most people will have a hard time doing 100 proper push ups, so as a regression I replaces the push up with the rocking pushup. Use caution obviously. If you are coming off a period where you haven't been moving a lot or are new to these patterns. Start at 50%. Your body will thank you.

If I Ruled the World. . .

What would the world be like ruled by YOU? Would there be mandatory nap times each day and breakfast for every meal? Unlimited hugs? Check out Beth Lindley's (Health Educator & Raw Foods Coach) story in this month's blog!

You Are What You, Poop!

Actually, that’s not true; it should more accurately read "you are what you digest!" So, you can see how that old expression "you are what you eat," is only half of the truth. Which leads to the point of this month’s blog.

Flying. Blooming. Becoming.

I can feel it. The confirmation is in the air, its the inspiration for all the smiles, the influence behind the light-hearted moods.
