Over the years that I have spent since my life changing event of blowing out my knee, and realizing what it means to truly be hurt and know your weaknesses. This event in my life taught me how much of a challenge it is to get back on your feet after life has knocked you down and knocked you out.  The big question is, "Do you want it bad enough?"  As Rocky said, "...But it aint about how hard you're hit.  It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.  How much can you take and keep moving forward?

I feel that for any person in an educational or coaching type of work should practice what they preach.  I'm sure that we've all heard someone who had been a mentor to us (in the fitness profession) or have read this in a book.  How many of you actually do it though?  What I mean by that is if you're coaching a marathon runner, how many of you fitness professionals have actually been through a training program specific to a running race?  What about training a powerlifter?

Plug these tips/tricks in next time your training. 1.Pair lower body exercises with an upper body exercises, resting as little as possible. You’ll get more done in less time and burn more calories. 2.Always do exercises that work multiple muscles. E.g., squats, push-ups and lunges. No bicep curls allowed. Again you’ll burn more calories and build more lean muscle. 3.Use the same piece of equipment when you pair exercises. You’ll cut down on rest time and again you’ll burn more calories. The Balance guy setting you straight.

Hey, guys I've made a few. Well ok, more than a few. But who's counting? You will learn from most of my mistakes if you do this....... 1. Don't go to heavy and sacrifice good form. We are doing this for life, not just for today. 2. Don't go to light. If your not challenged, your body not challenged and progress will stall. Use a weight you can lift between 6-12 reps. 3. Light weights and high repetitions will not give you the "tone" your looking for. Always use weights that you can lift between 6- 12 times. Got it? Good.

One way to begin strength training is to buy a set of dumbbells and start moving them around. Over time, bit by bit, we come to understand that we can get better benefits by being more precise: we start organizing our lifting into sets and reps, measuring the amount of weight lifted, planning out which days to train, and so on. What a good trainer understands though, is that there is a step missing here.

MESTRE BENGALA's Blog
Last night (August 15) Capoeira Mandinga participated in the monthly Piedmont Ave. Stroll (http://www.piedmontavestroll.org/blog.html) by playing capoeira outside for almost 90 minutes. Yesterday was also Mestre Marcelo's birthday and in true capoeira tradition he declared his intention to play with everyone in  the roda. Considering that there were probably over thirty people present, that would be no easy task.
