America is a 3rd world country

IMG_3370

America is a 3rd world country when it comes to health and fitness. Just as in Sweden, I am blown away by the high fitness level of tge average person on the street in Austrslia. USA does not invest in recreational and exercise facilities for the public. In Australia it seems like every block is another public lap pool with fitness center. Beautiful and manicured parks everywhere for walking and sports. Get this too, FREE bathrooms on most corners – the nice self cleaning kind. You can actually stay properly hydrated without worrying about where to pee. Making it easy...

The Amazing Human Body

final

Many people simply do not realize what an amazing machine the human body is or what it is capable of. Guys love lifting weights because the results are so visible but years of cardiovascular training has its own rewards. If you think your powerlifting/crossfit workout qualifies as cardio because it leaves you totally gassed, don't fool yourself, its just that you are in terrible cardiovascular shape. I have done centuries and double century rides before (100mi and 200mi) but nothing that compared to yesterdays 10hr 100 mile ride with nearly 7000' of vertical. The kicker was that I did it...

What women want

What-Women-Want

Last night I saw #GarthBrooks on TV in Yankee Stadium and you could tell the thousands of the young women in the crowd adored him. I had a funny thought while watching. If Taylor Lautner at his prime was standing next to Garth Brooks on stage and they both grabbed the microphone and said to the women in the crowd “Come get me!”, #TaylorLautner would be trampled and perforated by high heels with the stampede of women trying to get to Garth. Fifth Avenue marketing firms and their billions of dollars of ads have somehow convinced young men that having...

LeanMuscleSystems

There is no "best workout", only a best workout for a particular person at a particular point in time. Since introducing my free custom workout planner at LeanMuscleSystems a year and a half ago, over 400,000 people have made custom workout plans to suit their needs perfectly. There are lots of great workout plans out there, most of them free, but some of them rather expensive.  What they all have in common is that they are "best" for only a very small subset of the fitness population.  That's the whole reason I started this project, as a way to help people figure...

vegetables more effective than statins

If vegetables were a drug, they would be the #1 best seller! A paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology analyzed 95 studies looking into the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables for more than 2 million people on multiple continents. After taking other factors into account like smoking, activity levels, and weight, they found that eating 10 servings of fruit and veg a day was associated with a 24 percent reduced risk of heart disease, a 28% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, a 33 percent reduced risk of stroke, and a 13 percent reduced risk of total cancer.  There is no drug available from any pharmaceutical...

Cardio is more than fat loss – stress reduction

cardio-health-fat-stress

Cardio is way more than a fat loss tool! Many people seem to have a very limited and inaccurate view of what cardio can do for them.  For some reason, many people love to hate cardio.  They think that cardio is just for fat loss and that if they don't need to lose fat then they don't need to do cardio.  Furthermore, they know that losing fat is calories in vs calories out and that they can lose fat without walking a single mile.  Cardio is way more than a fat loss tool!   Cardio makes your heart and lungs...

Cheap weight plates

cheap weight plates

I always tell people to get their weight plates used because the used ones are just as good as new ones and are a fraction of the cost.  In fact, if you are patient you can often find weight sets for free from people who just want them out of their attic/garage/basement.  The new price weight plates in USA is about $1/pound, if its more than that they are gouging you.  On craigslist, the going rate is about 25 cents per pound but often free as I mentioned. For some people though, used is not an option.  It is very...

body fat estimation chart men women

body fat estimation chart men women

If you do not have a skinfold caliper to measure your bodyfat both men and women can still get a very good estimation by using this chart.  A simple photo analysis is plenty accurate for setting those fat loss goals and determining how long it will take to get to sixpack abs.  If you do have a skinfold caliper, here is now to measure your body fat accurately. I was not happy with any of the ones found on the internet so I made my own. If you are under 20% bodyfat then skinfold calipers can give you very accurately body fat measurements...
