Free weights, body weight and resistance machines. What are the differences when strength training? Well free weights offer the most functionality of the three because you can perform many excercises and target all muscles, using them in various ways. Free weights also incorporates the smaller muscles that machines does not. This is because machines gives your body support and uniformity whereas free weights does not. Thus, you have to incorpoarte more of your smaller muscles to work with the free weights and perform your exercise. This can add more value to your workouts.

So I was thinking about the way we train. I think the biggest problem with the way most people train is that they do what they like, but don't do much of the things they don't. For instance, if you love to jog, but hate strength training, generally we jog much more than train with weights! The same thing happens the other way around as well.

Some of my favorite memories are of smaller capoeira events such as rodas at Lake Merritt or at last week's Petaluma Music Festival. Here are some of my thoughts about a few of the "smaller" batizados that I have attended this year.

 So I got a wonderful phone call from a new client of mine today.   Now, to put things is perspective, this client came in very depressed and said he was kind of at rock bottom.   You see, he had a recent breakup, and because of an injury had lost a lot of weight.   Sadly, it was almost all muscle and he was feeling terrible. In talking with him, it was apparent that he was very depressed.   Now, as we talked we discussed goals.

I have raced in different obstacle races and running races but never a triathlon. First off there is a novice race I will try out on August 9th to get my feet wet on what it will be like to transition between swimming, biking and running.Are there any other suggestions on what I should do to prepare?
