5 Tips to Recharge Your Mind!

 5 Tips to Recharge Your Mind!

Basic RGB

At times when events become hectic and frantic, using these 5 tips can help you stay collected, recharged, and focused.

 

  1. Stay Laser focused: We overestimate how good we really think we are at multitasking. It’s better to focus on one task at a time to improve our ability to focus and think. It can also help reduce stress since your brain isn’t being tugged in multiple directions. By minimizing distractions, clutter, and interruptions, you can avoid an overload and be more productive.

  1. Use Your Legs: A walk outside removes indoor distractions and offers a sense of calm that just can’t be found in front of a computer. Whether it’s a walk down the block or through a park, some outdoor legwork can help clear the mind.

 

  1. Break It Down: Big goals can be broken down into a series of smaller steps. If your objective would take weeks, try writing out the day-by-day actions you need to take. This helps put challenges into perspective—often we imagine things as requiring more than they actually do—and it will make you feel better to claim smaller victories on the way than to hold out for the end goal.

 

  1. Stay Forward-Focused: It won’t all be smooth sailing. You will slip up, or fail to meet a goal at some point. You will have days where it seems easy to justify skipping your workout or getting a quick bite of fast food. It’s at these points where you need to accept that things aren’t going perfectly, but also focus on getting back on track. Stumble, fall, and get back on your feet.

 

  1. Keep and Achievement List: When you reach a milestone of any kind, whether professionally or personally, make a note of it. This list of your achievements can serve as a motivator and an inspiration. When you’re feeling disheartened or daunted, just looking back over what you’ve accomplished can restore that feeling of empowerment and capability.

 

3 Legit Reasons You Should Work Out

3 Legit Reasons You Should Work Out

 

1. You should work out to make your life easier. 

Being stronger, leaner, happier, and more capable can make for a more manageable life:

Your boss needs you to get that box? Yes ma’am, you can get that box.
Your neighbor needs you to rearrange his furniture? Damn right buddy, you’ll move that couch. Your homeboy needs you to carry him home from the bar? Saddle up, cowboy.

Training increases your capabilities. That’s the law of progressive overload — lift something a little bit heavier each day, get a little bit stronger. Run a little faster each day, get a litttle bit, um, faster. A body that is increasingly capable makes for a life that is increasingly manageable (read: awesome).

 

2. You should work out because it helps you win at life. 

Setting and achieving goals inside the weight room helps you set and achieve goals outside the weight room. The goal-setting/goal-accomplishing cycle is a learned trait. From a very early age, winners start to reinforce this idea that if they set their mind to something and tirelessly work towards its accomplishment, the outcome will be positive. Initially, these victories are small. But eventually, the accomplishment (or foundering) of our goals comes to define our life. This same cycle repeats itself on a daily basis with our exercise. For example, if you’d like to be able to be able to do a pull-up you might:

Do seated rows.
Recover.
Do inverted rows.
Recover.
Do lat-pull downs.
Recover.
Do assisted pull-ups.
Recover.
DO A PULL-UP.

Set-work-achieve-rinse-repeat. The more you reinforce hard work with a positive outcome, the more you think of yourself as a winner. If we get good at winning at exercise, we can be good at winning at anything.

 

3. You should work out for your family and friends. 

I don’t want to get too sappy (it’ll ruin my street cred) but the people closest to you rely on your love, energy, and compassion. Mismanaging your body is a disservice to them.

This holds true for young mothers, aging grandparents, or loving husbands. Taking care of your relationship with self is the first step towards taking care of your relationship with others. Making time for exercise is absolutely, positively, in NO WAY an act of selfishness. Quite the opposite: It’s an act of generosity. The people around you deserve your best. The best version of you is a version that is constantly challenged and improved with a kick-ass exercise routine

Benefits of Deer Antler Velvet

There’s a rising supplement that’s about to make some NOISE very soon and we’re here to let you know about it first!

Allow me to introduce Deer Antler velvet!

Benefits of deer antler velvet?

Modern scientific research has shown that deer antler velvet can:
• increase muscular development and strength
• increase energy levels and endurance
• increase muscle recovery
• improve flexibility and joint mobility
• prevent and reduce inflammation
• improve sexual health

Despite its recent popularity, the use of deer antler velvet is not new. Deer antler velvet has been a staple in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. While deer antler velvet continues to play a fundamental role in the treatment of disease in Asia, outside of Asia it has been taken primarily for improved muscular strength, endurance, recovery and overall athletic performance.

Deer antler velvet was introduced to the Western world in the 1960′s by Russian bodybuilders who used it primarily to increase muscle strength. There have been clinical studies in Russia, Korea, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In fact, almost 250 papers have been published since 1930 on the effects of deer antler velvet, supporting the use of deer antler velvet today.

How does it work?

Scientists believe that deer velvet antler has an effect on many systems of the body given its complex chemical composition. Deer antler velvet contains nearly 40 key compounds and 400 active ingredients, including proteins, growth factors and minerals.

The active ingredients in deer velvet antler are mostly precursors that are required by the body to process substances that maintain its health and well-being. Therefore, deer velvet antler stimulates the body’s own systems to protect, strengthen and restore functions that are out of balance. It restores homeostasis to an unbalanced body by helping where it is needed.

Deer antler velvet is particularly rich in Insulin Growth Factor 1, or IGF-1.

IGF-1 is a hormone that is produced naturally in the human body and circulates in the blood. It contains seventy amino acid polypeptides that are produced by the liver and endocrine hormone.

IGF-1 has many effects on the body. In childhood, it is important for growth (the highest levels in humans occur during puberty). In adults, it has anabolic effects. IGF-1 aids growth and stops cell death in normal ranges. The hormone stimulates growth in most cells of the body, including skeletal muscle, cartilage, bone, nerves and skin. It increases the number and size of cells.

IGF-1 plays a role in cell repair to the brain, heart and muscles. It speeds recovery and muscle regeneration. In addition, IGF-1 reduces body fat by stopping insulin from moving glucose through the body, resulting in the body using fat as a source of energy instead of glucose. Increasing the levels of IGF-1 in the body can increase the body’s ability to build muscle, recover from injury or workouts, and burn fat.
It is due to these reasons deer antler velvet is touted as the ultimate fitness supplement and is the one of the hottest products on the market today.

What’s the best deer antler velvet product?

Most of the high quality deer velvet in the worldwide market is sold to Asia, where it has a long history of use in medicine. Asian buyers know what to look for in deer velvet and are willing to pay for the best stock. However, the quality of deer antler velvet from Asia can be poor and very inconsistent. Deer antler velvet production in Asia is largely unregulated and their deer husbandry practices are questionable, at best.

Interestingly, the best source of deer antler velvet is New Zealand. The country is ideal for deer farming, with virtually no pollution. The New Zealand deer industry is extensive in its scale and operation, with the highest standards in the world. New Zealand is the undisputed leader in high quality deer antler velvet production.

The United States is just beginning to understand and accept the use of deer antler velvet as a nutritional and sports supplement. As a result, many substandard companies are producing low grade products to capitalize on the trend, with little regard for the consumer. Unfortunately, most of the deer velvet sold in the United States fits this category.

Antler Farms is a top tier New Zealand deer antler velvet manufacturer that produces the highest quality products. Antler Farms only uses the high grade parts of the antler and processes it carefully to ensure all the vital nutrients are maintained. Their deer antler velvet is processed using techniques that are more labor intensive and more time consuming than conventional methods, to ensure the purest, strongest product.

Antler Farms deer antler velvet has the highest concentration of active ingredients on the market today, which means quicker results, more improvements, and greater benefits for users.

3 Ways to Boost Your results in the gym

3 Ways to Boost Your results in the gym

Not satisfied with your current workout or wanting to burn off extra calories? Why don’t you try:

 

1. Jump Training: Also known as ‘plyometrics’ and favored by martial artists. Plyometrics are a series of jump-based, explosive exercises designed to get the heart rate up quickly, and fast heart equals more calories and fat burned away! As a bonus, jump training excels at targeting your agility and twitch muscles to give an exciting and challenging workout. Be sure to learn the ropes of these high-impact moves first, since proper form is essential!

 

2.  Use your body weight (use everything): It’s easy to focus on the lower body with cardio exercises like biking, elliptical, or stair climbing, but burning calories is easier if you get the upper body involved as well. Pump your arms when running or use elliptical with moving handles, for instance. You should also try adding upper-body exercises like T-bar rows, medicine ball thrusts, or bench presses to your routine. Mix and match what you like best until you find the full-body solution that you love! Just remember: more muscles moving means more calories burning.

 

3. Up the Intensity: Moving out of your comfort zone helps build cardio and burn calories. Kick the incline or resistance on your gym machine up a notch and try an uphill path on your jog. A high intensity workout can burn fat for up to 11 hours after you stop, according to the 2002 Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports Medicine. Don’t worry if you aren’t up for high-intensity workouts, though. Simply increasing your pace, even by a small margin, will still give improved returns. Also Mixing up your workout by shifting between high and low intensity exercises is actually better than going steady-state. Both your calories burned and overall fitness improve more when you pace yourself, not to mention it helps your endurance!

3 things you MUST-DO to get the BEST out of your workout

3 things you MUST-DO to get the BEST out of your workout

 1.       Prepare your routine

WORKOUT_TEMPLATE

It’s boggling to me on how much people simply freestyle in the gym and wonder why they don’t see results. If you don’t keep track of your workout you cannot expect results – bottom line! Write down your routine and track it week by week. This will allow you to progress your workouts more easily. It’s also motivating to see how well you are progressing. Grab this FREE TEMPLATE you can download that I personally use for tracking my workouts. You shouldn’t freestyle your workout if you are serious about making gains. Put it on paper/phone and track it every single time. Give your workout purpose!

 

 

 2. Warm your ass up!

warm-up

No really! Warm your lower back area by doing dynamic stretches as well as squats. Your mid-section also known as your CORE is hugely involved in coordinating your upper and lower body and if it’s warmed up, you’ll actually perform much better in your upper/lower body exercises. A quick warm up routine would be:-

Torso twist

Bird dog

Jumping Jacks

Squats

So warm up your butt, lower-back, and abs for an effective warm up.

 

 

3. Get Laser Focused

cyclops

Remember Cyclopes from X-men? Well you need to be as laser focused as him when you get to the gym. I’m always in awe that the majority of people in the gym that I train out of have never transformed their body despite going to the gym for years. I’ve concluded that majority of these gym-goers are going with just the motion. What I mean is they simply push the weight or move the elliptical machine but they do not make that mind to muscle connection to get LASER FOCUSED with their workout routine. Therefore they miss out on actually seeing results. When you get laser focused and you are in tune with your workout then you shall see results. Be prepared to push yourself to an uncomfortable zone where it burns! That’s where results are sparked.

Of course there are man other key factors determines ones workout but we wanted to emphasize on these three!

 

Now make sure every gym session counts!
