Many of us start working out without a clear direction, and those of us that do have a direction seldom have a good one! Here is my suggestion for today… Set a tangible goal. Make the goal a bit more in-dept, don’t just focus on your looks. What do you want to feel like, how…

Let’s talk this through… red wine is said to be “good” for you because it contains resveratrol. The recommended daily dosage of resveratrol is 100mg to 300mg per day.
The question becomes; who much wine do we have to drink to get to the recommended dosage of resveratrol?
Hint… check out the photo 🙂
Your guessed it… the Dead-Lift. Why, because it engages virtually every muscle in the body. But most importantly it emphasizes the muscles in the back of the body.
The back muscles work against gravity all day long it’s very important you keep them strong and healthy. If you don’t do deal-lifts yet… start now 🙂
Researchers suggest we are overlooking something crucial; friendship. It would appear that our society is ignoring its importance.
Some surprising statistics were revealed in a recent study… If your best friend eats healthily, you are five times more likely to have a healthy diet yourself.
Married people say friendship is more than five times as important as physical intimacy within marriage.
Go figure, no surprise but a great reminder to call up your friends today and tell them how much they mean to you 🙂
The big myth
Let’s start by clearing up a myth. It is a common assumption that muscles tissues need to be physically stretched (that is, to be made longer) in order to become more flexible. This is not true, your muscles have plenty of length to allow you to do splits right now, it is only your own tension that is preventing you from going all the way down.
I know that you are not just going to take my word for this one – so try the following test. Go stand next to a table and put one leg on it. Depending on how tall you are, your leg should now be at about a 90 degree angle, right? The leg you have on the table is in the position for a side split. Take this leg off the table and put the other one on it. You have just established that you can put both legs individually in a middle split position.
Next, ask yourself this question; what muscles run from one leg through the groin to the other leg? Just in case you do not know much about the human anatomy, the answer is NONE. This means that you should be able to get down in a middle split right now, so why can’t you?
