Find what works for you

For the longest time I thought that losing weight “the healthy way” didn’t work for me, and never would. I told myself that because I was going to the gym everyday and not losing a pound, I needed to find other options. I tried cleanses, extreme workout plans, and when nothing worked I gave up. I thought that no matter what I did, I would never lose weight. Now, here I am after almost two months of regularly exercising and eating healthier, and I’m finally losing weight.
Cleanses and extreme diets don’t always work, and they aren’t always healthy. Over the past 2 months I have found that by changing up my exercise routine each week and eating more organic foods, I am able to lose weight, gain muscle, and be overall healthy. Please don’t resort to “quick weight loss options” just because you are frustrated. It takes time, patience, and hard work.
The moral of this post is that you need to find the right balance for YOU. Just exercising might not be enough. Eat more fruits and vegetables, eat less processed foods. Include strength AND cardio into your exercise routine. Find what works for you, and stick with it.

I am very old indeed. It is so silly of people…to fancy that old age means crookedness and witheredness and feebleness and sticks and spectacles and rheumatism and forgetfulness! It is so silly! Old age has nothing whatever to do with all that. The right old age means strength and beauty and mirth and courage and clear eyes and strong painless limbs. I am older than you are able to think…

193kg/425lbs for two sets of 6.

I’ve got very bad jumpers knee, or possibly even a slight tear in my right patella tendon between my knee cap and shin, so conventional deadlifts seem to be the only thing I can do without pain. My training plans have therefore had to be scrapped, sadly. I’m going to switch over to a bench focussed routine soon and do conventional deadlifts to keep my lower body ticking over until I can squat again.

Are you running correctly? I recently posted a video on walking, enforcing a soft heel strike. When you run or sprint, your striking mechanics should be from the ball of the foot. We strike from the ball of the foot for a sprint because it allows us to better utilize the calf muscle and efficiently drive from the hip/glute amongst other reasons. If you notice you dump your weight into your heel when you run, your losing a lot of force production.
Tag me in your sprinting video, I want to see some athletic striking!

@ the people asking if I’m okay.

like, people hate people, it happens. I hate people. we all hate people.

but, some people I think are really cool reblog from me occasionally, so, I can’t be 100% bad.

and if I’m okay for them, and they’re hanging around despite everything I am, and me being myself, well then thats okay. so yeah, I’m okay.
