Hi there. This is a start to something that I have been telling myself that I am going to do for a while. I have been telling myself that I would create some blogs about Health, fitness and current lifestyle trends and give my take on all of those topics. Before I start writing about those topics, I thouht I would introduce myself a little.
I have been getting a lot of questions about diet/nutrition and have been discussing my own diet/nutrition recently, so I decided to continue my theme of CHANGE and write a blog keeping the subject of nutrition in mind.
As some of you may have seen, I posted a short video on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dmofitness) with the caption "If you focus on results, you will never change....if you focus on change, you will get results".
I am now offering personal training at the Lake City Fitness Center. If you would like to learn all about bodyweight training, please get in touch! I can design a program for any experience level, from beginner to elite athlete. Even if you have a tight schedule, we can try to get in short but intense workouts that will still push you to your limit and burn off the calories!
I have to agree with all of the points made in the below video, as well as the progression. The only exercise I'd add is bodyweight triceps extensions, which utilizes the same movement pattern, but with a deeper range of motion. I include a second video for this exercise.
Fast food prevalence, long stretches of sitting at work and in cars and busier lifestyles contribute to the American obesity epidemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that as of 2012, 69 percent of American adults 20 years old or older were overweight or obese. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases warns that being overweight may increase the risk of health problems including diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. People are increasingly getting the message that a sedentary lifestyle is harmful.
Recovering from a drug addiction can be a long and lengthy process which is more difficult for some than others. Depending on the type of drug and the severity of the addiction, recovery can be anything from a few weeks in a rehabilitation center to years of working towards being able to live independently of drugs. When recovering from any kind of drug addiction, professionals recommend taking up different hobbies to not only distract from any need for the drug but also to help the person in recovery live a healthier and more fulfilled life.

In the video below, I demonstrate a calisthenics progression for Dragon flag, a technical, difficult, and cool looking movement credited to Bruce Lee. Rocky Balboa also used the Dragon flag as part of training for his fight with Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Dragon flag works most (if not all) of the torso, as well as the hips and glutes. In my opinion, the Dragon flag most difficult bodyweight training exercise for the abdominals that I can think of.
