vision-training-contacts.jpg Baseball players are going to great lengths to gain competitive edge by using tinted contacts and $85,000 ocular devices that squeeze the most out of visual information. It’s essentially a “high-speed pitching machine that fires marked tennis balls at speeds up to 155 mph.” A friend of mine recently observed, “I really noticed that my vision went down hill after quitting tennis in college…but, it improved when I took tennis up again a few years ago.” So I felt like putting to rest some myths about vision Girls Air Jordan 1.

Myth1: Your vision only gets worse with time.
This is not true. Just like fitness, if you are willing to maintain it you will stay in good heath. Other than when a supermodel walks by, when was the last time you did eye exercises – let alone on a program? The eyes have muscles and they need to be worked out: up close, far away, in movement, in the dark and in the light.
Myth 2: There is nothing you can do once your eyes start going bad except wear glasses.
This thought is more pervasive than you might think. People still believe once you have knee pain you are destined to have knee surgery. This is absolutely true if you are not willing to change you lifestyle. So, as long as you are willing to work, there are things you can do about your vision.
Myth 3: It is impossible to change your vision (Even as of late, I have been told by a health care provider).
As we see with baseball players whose careers depend on their vision, you can work to improve and if not anything else get more out of your vision.

Over and over the body shows that maintenance goes a long way and obstacles such as weakness and pain are not a good reason to quit trying. I am issuing a challenge to you (and myself): to create an exercise program for your eyes (personally, I have incorporated it into my cardio/core training program). Work on it at least 3 to 5 days a week for 8 weeks, and see what changes. Throughout life, we have opportunities to improve ourselves. It is not just a privilege of 18 to 25 year olds. Please drop a line and tell me how this challenge works for you. As for me, I am going to work on something I was told would not change and will see what happens in a year. There is no doubt it will be hard work and will have to go against every current belief…even my own.

Brush and Floss your Teeth

teeth.jpg I cannot tell you how many times I have sent clients of mine to the dentist. I have been saying for years that oral hygiene affects the overall health and is preventative in certain health conditions. Yesterday’s LA Times Health section stated: long term gum disease “can contribute to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke, pregnancy complications, and perhaps even Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis and some types of cancers. Infections in the mouth also may increase the risk to people undergoing several types of surgery, including transplantation and cardiac valve replacement.” If oral hygiene can affect long-term health, do you see how proper oral hygiene could impact simpler conditions like nutritional absorption, intestinal health, immunity to colds and wound healing time—which are the building blocks of good health Cheap Air Max 90 Carved. There is an expression, “Do not look a gifted horse in the mouth.” I do not agree. If you are plagued by a physical ailment such as joint pain, low back pain, headaches or digestive problems look to the mouth first.

FatMan As seen from the Orlando Sentinel (03.17.07):

Last week a man jumped from the back of a cruise ship and was found adrift 8 hours later. Michael Mankamyer, 34, fell 60 feet off the back of the Carnival Glory and drifted about 20 miles with the Gulf Stream in 70 degree water. Officials are not really sure how he survived for 8 hours in the open sea. “It’s pretty miraculous that he’s still alive,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Dana Warr. “It’s not that it doesn’t happen, but it’s few and far between when we’re trying to find someone that jumps from a cruise ship.” The reason most people do not survive is because they are usually overcome by hypothermia and drown. According to Richard Rotundo professor at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, “ His 300 pound girth might have helped. As a heavyset man, he was more likely to float than someone leaner.” The professor continues, “Someone who is really overweight and has excess fat, their body density would be less than water. Layers of fat also would insulate Mankamyer from the water.”

When lecturing, I used to say the sole function of fat is to insulate. I have been proven wrong. Fat has a secondary function of acting as a floatation device. So when falling off the back of a cruise ship, make sure you have the proper floatation device to secure you in the choppy nike free run

Don’t be “That Guy”

General Health No Comments »

Usually around 6:30PM you find “That Guy” at the gym. “That Guy” was probably a pretty good athlete in high school and college, and now realizes he must do some kind of exercise because he is starting to look more like his father. “That Guy” decides he must hit the gym 5 days a week because he feels this is the only place where he can improve his body. At the gym, he is often found telling stories of his “glory days” and lifting hearty amounts of weights, attempting to turn back the clock. He starts to feel pain, beyond muscle soreness, but continues to power through the exercises. He does not realize pain occurs because his body is not supported properly which leads him to feel old and defeated.

The irony is that he exercises and lifts weights at the gym no differently than how he uses his body at work, home or with his kids. He carries the stress of his day, the body language of fatigue and mental overload into the gym where he fortifies it into his musculature and nervous system with the repetitive action of exercising. And when he leaves the gym, he leaves with the same rounded shoulders, droopy stomach and fatigued walk he had when he left the office.

Are you interested in learning how not to be “That Guy”?

The goal of exercise is to improve the body in various ways. You will get better results if you become more aware, conscious and focused on the task. Here are the steps:
under armour curry 1
1. Use your imagination: Before, during and after you work out, envision your ideal body shape in your mind. This is what you want, so why not know what to work towards.
2. Connect through each movement: Each weight you lift, each rep you do, each step you take: do it by connecting all your muscle groups to your core abdominals. Do you feel the difference in connecting vs. powering through? Feel each part of your body working in a way to meet your goals.
3. Consciously activate every detail: including posture, balance, coordination and core connection.
4. Think Extra weight: Imagine each rep is twice the amount you are actually lifting and each step you take feels like your there is twice the load on your muscles.

These steps will take practice to incorporate so be patient. If you truly do this, you will feel satisfied with your workouts because you are fully involved in changing your body. You will also limit physical stress that can put the body at risk for injury.

Experiment with this for 12 weeks. Be consistent and see what happens to your body. If you are not totally involved, it will not work because these steps ask for you to be fully present. Just imagine if someone wanted to participate more in your life. How different would things be? Would work get done faster? Would things be more in order? How long until that participation trickles into other aspects of your life? The ultimate goal is to go from being “that Guy” to “The Guy.”
