So today I found myself crawling through a tiny window. Yes, it’s true. CRAWLING THROUGH A TINY WINDOW. My friend locked her keys in the house and a locksmith would take more than an hour. So we said, “hey, we can do this”. Any woman in her 40’s can crawl through a window for Pete’s sake. Right? What could be so hard about that? Well, I’ll tell you. My friend is about 5’8” and I’m 5’, so by default I became the window ninja. She found a ladder and some tools in the open shed while I looked for an open window.

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.

So the other day I was talking to a client about exercise and the way it can make you feel not only better physically, but mentally as well. My point was that studies show that exercise is AS effective as a chemical anti-depressant.

 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.

In following with the theme of my first post to this blog I'm back again to share my latest insights.  Lately I have noticed a big draw to body weight exercises.  Such exercises can be done anywhere, great for coordination, balance, more functional in my opinion and can modified to fit either muscular strength or endurance.  My latest read, "The Naked Warrior" by Pavel, had a lot of insight on breathing, force production and tension.  All the time I see fellow trainers tell their clients to keep their core tight or to push off that leg.
