In a world of obesity we now have a bacon truck. Yes a truck that will actually drive and park and feed fat Americans bacon tailored to the chefs liking. They have bacon with pancakes smothered with maple syrup, bacon with peanut butter and jelly,, the list goes on. How many calories? How many milligrams of sodium, how much sugar? how much fat? do they have to post calorie content like other fast food places?
Just wanted to give a public forewarning for any who may be thinking of do something in the woods. I've heard through word of mouth of multiple copperhead sightings and a dog that was bit, so just be on the lookout if your out enjoying the wilderness. Usually they hang out in rocky areas, so just keep an eye out. Was just mountain biking and didn't see any, but when ur cruising down a mountain at 20 mph it's kind of hard to notice much of anything besides what to avoid crashing into ;)
Six weeks of the most intense fitness program available at In Shape has finally come to a close. Yesterday was our last session before one week of vacation, one week of demos and then the Fall Boot Camp program begins. Because so many of our members were away on vacation, this session was very small, only 4 people. But again, the benefit for them is the personalized attention they get from me, and the benefit for me is that I get to really tailor the program around them and really push them to give it all they've got. And push them I did. These members have
I thought I would do a more personal blog about why at this point in time not only do I eat cacao but why I have made it a staple food in my diet. I am curious to know how many still don't know what cacao is, would it help more if I used the term cocoa or chocolate? Not only has the name of this food change since the time of great chocolate-tiers that included the Aztecs and Mayans but its great properties have been overshadowed by our own fault. In my opinion cacao has been diminished by modern ways of cheap processing and uses.
Let’s talk about the exercise that everyone does first with themselves as well as their clients “the chest press”. The chest has clavicular fibers, sterna fibers, and costal fibers. The chest is a horizontal shoulder adductor, which simply means to get the most, and safest stimulus we must bring our arms to midline. So, if the goal is to build a little muscle in the chest region, then a straight bar would be the worst choice for hypertrophy.
Your triceps do not attach to the radius; therefore, when you extend the elbow (triceps press down/extension), your biceps have no idea you’re doing it. The muscles don’t know but the bones do. When you pronate (hold a straight bar palms down, spill the soup) envision that the radius locks over the elbow, as you go to elbow extension (triceps ext) as you get near the end. Anatomy dictates that if you twist the two bones, they now touch upon one another.
Did you know we are getting more stress in our rotator cuff musculature, (internal rotation) then the horizontal fibers of the lats during a seated row, using those small handgrips? The wrist must be in line with the elbow. Remember you are training the horizontal fibers of the lats, rhomboids, elbow flexors, and some small scapular muscles. The better the alignment during this movement pattern the greater the performance. Also the alignment dictates the amount of regional fiber recruitment.
