You don’t have to dig too deep into the internet before you will come across researchers and bro science experts alike referencing a supposed sweet spot called the “anabolic window”.
I'm sitting in an undisclosed location in the desert. I have a lot of time to think. We get a lot of emails asking what program is best for an individual. Those questions made me realize that a lot of people don't actually know why they are going through the motions of working out. Jamming out to some Steve Earle and on my third cup of Turkish coffee, you guys are about to get another window into my furiously spinning ADD brain. Today I'm going to explain the most important thing you can possibly identify in your training: The reasons behind your striving.
No one wants to be the one to say it, but here’s the truth:
You don’t need to eat a steak that big.
Everyone loves the idea of a 24 oz porterhouse steak, but the reality is that that shouldn’t be the gold standard. The gold standard is set by quality, not quantity.
I used to run too fast. My bi-weekly jog always—always—escalated into a Forrest-Gump-like pace. A weekly day or two of long-distance, low-intensity cardio work can not only improve your recovery and heart health, it can also take time off your faster runs and improve your lifts.
The late, great neuroscientist Victor Frankel once said, “Between stimulus and the response, there is a space, and in that space is our power and our freedom”.
We have the power to focus our attention in the present moment to shift our reactions. In making that conscious choice to intentionally place our attention, we can create the power to transform our current reality and empower ourselves beyond measure.
First, to understand what is meant by “the present moment”, we need to look at its opposite, which is commonly called “Autopilot”. Simply put, Autopilot describes any time that your mind is not focused on what is right in front of you.
Ranger School is more a selection than a "school". Not many people can list the tangible things they learned there and as many will tell you there isn't much "Ranger" stuff that goes on. You go to get your tab, it's a gate, one of the many herd thinning systems in place to set the special apart from the not so special...or in some cases the lucky from the unlucky. Here are what I think are the keys to success.
Americans vision of strength and fitness shifted in the late 1970s. When guys like ArnoldSchwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno began appearing in films and on television, what we thought about strength training became about one thing: size.
The nascent world of health and fitness soon shifted focus, with sheer mass -- as opposed to all-around health and fitness -- being the arbiter of men’s health. Magazines likeMuscle and Fitness, Shape UpandStrength & Health began pushing pictures of guys built like comic book heroes, their oiled muscles rippling off the page, and the supplement industry suddenly exploded with men looking for mass.
The public safety and military worlds soon fell right in line. Cops worked toward having a “physical presence,” firemen wanted to impress the soccer moms at the grocery store, and military guys wanted to look like the G.I. Joe cartoons they grew up watching.
This trend continued on through the 1980s, with the ubiquity of shredded Gold’s Gym shirts and the legendary Muscle Beach acting as the benchmark for what was and what wasn’t defined as “fitness.” We watched American Gladiators and ate our Wheaties in hopes that we too might curl those massive, octagonical dumbbells, our crewcuts and biceps glistening in the sun.
It wasn’t until the mid-to-late 90s that we began to see a shift in our values and focuses, a shift that continues to manifest today in the idea that fitness and strength doesn’t necessarily mean being the biggest and most physically imposing.
And while mass and size are fine if aesthetics are your main goal, or if you’re a naturally large human, science would argue that you don’t need size to see massive gains in strength.
One really helpful tool in maintaining pain free range of motion is"Voodoo flossing", here Chris VB goes through a quick how to on using this technique for your shoulders.
Lately I have been able to work on and develop my recovery protocols. They’ve become a huge part and success factor in not just my training but my overall life, providing emotional and even mental resets. This isn’t something that happened over night; believe it or not, it has take almost a full year of really sticking to these recovery protocols after every workout to see the maximum recovery results.
The great thing about these recovery tips is that they are not adding more things to your day. The trainers and programmers at SOFLETE are simply helping you create more time in you day with better workout results and a better recovery. Wondering why this is? Think about how fast you are going from when you wake up to when you go to bed. At times it seems like you don’t even remember what you did that morning! Now that isn’t a good thing.
In a world full of nutritionist bloggers, Instagram health experts, and a booming weight loss industry estimated to be worth over $60 billion, why are Americans more obese they have ever been?
While it is widely recognized that seeking expert coaches in the fitness world is beneficial for physical training, why aren’t individuals seeking out experts when it comes to nutrition? Why aren’t we looking toward the pros to coach us through adapting healthy eating patterns designed to help them reach their goals?
Most people seek out a cure-all for obesity but this complex issue stems from many different factors, making the idea of finding a single solution an impossibility.
