Intermittent Fasting for Improved Performance for Women and Men by Julia Glanz

 

In recent years, Intermittent fasting has become extremely popular - and for good reason.

There has been exciting findings and strong evidence supporting the positive outcomes of IF and how it can be used as a sustainable strategy for:

-       Weight loss[1]

-       Lowering inflammation[2]

-       Improving digestion[3]

-       Increasing fat burning[4]

-       Reducing insulin (your storage hormone)[5]

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent Fasting (IF) is a term used to explain an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of fasting (abstinence from food and caloric beverages). The therapeutic benefits have been documented for thousands of years and have shown that this way of eating is deeply rooted in our biology. 

Philosophers like Socrates, Hippocrates, Plato and Paracelsus even believed in the health benefits of regular fasting. 

Not only was fasting used...

Three Ways to Program Kettlebells

 

The simplicity of the kettlebell can’t be beat. I love the idea of grabbing a bell or two, finding a park with a pull up bar and getting to work. With a couple of kettlebells you can do just about anything except change the weight of the bell. Most people have access to a bell or two (or three if you’re REALLY lucky), but few have access to a rack of kettlebells as you’d see with dumbbells. Let’s say you take a lesson or a course and fall in love with kettlebell training. You find a bell, start progressing, but then there’s a gap between getting your next bell.

 

What to do?

 

In order to get stronger you need to adhere to the principle of Progressive Overload. With a bar or dumbbells, it’s fairly easy to add another 5lbs every few sessions, but that’s not going to work with the kettlebell. 

 

When I first started I only had access to a few bells so out of necessity I tried progressing in different ways. Little did I know...

Dr. Aaron Horschig of Squat University interviewed by Aaron Guyett

 

Every athlete who spends time in the weight room eventually deals with pain/injury that leaves them frustrated and unable to reach their highest potential. Every athlete ought to have the ability to take the first steps at addressing these minor injuries. They shouldn’t have to wait weeks for a doctor’s appointment, only to be prescribed pain medications and told to “take two weeks off lifting” or, even worse, to “stop lifting so heavy.”

Dr. Aaron Horschig knows your pain and frustration. He’s been there. For over a decade, Dr. Horschig has been a competitive weightlifter, and he understands how discouraging it is to tweak your back three weeks out from a huge weightlifting competition, to have knee pain limit your ability to squat heavy for weeks, and to suffer from chronic shoulder issues that keep you from reaching your goals.
