Mistake #1: Trying to do too many things

We want it all. We want to be huge, we want to be ripped, we want to move well, etc. I see no fault in this, but trying to have everything means you really get nowhere with anything. Having a clear goal, putting all your focus into that goal, assessing the...

What Differentiates Living.Fit From Everyone Else?

 

Living.fit is now all around the world. We've had people from Saudi Arabia, Netherlands, India, Dubai, England, Ireland, Germany, France, and the list goes on.

What is Living.Fit's big differentiator?

The two from Marcus's perspective are the amount of technical knowledge that goes into these plans, and the amount of plans.

Normally, you find a lot of not the highest quality programs, or really technical and really great programs, but you get very, very few of them. We wanted to do high quality, high quantity, so that way, there was so much to pull from. Whether you are a coach, whether you are a fitness enthusiast, dabbling with battle ropes and kettle bells, we have every base covered.

For Aaron, it is a bit different. How can you get them the ground floor, so to speak, and be able to go all the way up to the highest levels? Or if you're at the highest level, how are you gonna get benefit? That's a hard line to walk...

Does Your Morning Routine Need a Tweak?

 

Every amazing day, starts with an amazing morning routine!

Why is a morning routine so important?

  1. Mindlessly set yourself up for success
  2. Set aside your willpower for the difficult problems
  3. Automatically do the things that will start your day off right

No matter the time that you wake up, your morning routine can set you up for success, without having to get sucked in to other people's problems with the news, social media, etc.

How do you start small and win big with your morning routine?

  • Start with an affirmation or gratefulness that you can say to yourself, as an automatic response, and build on that affirmation
  • Bring your family or loved ones that you live with into a routine, which will help you stay with yours
  • What is your ideal start to your day? Do that.
  • Eat the Frog first...think about the most challenging thing that you have to do in the day, and knock that out.

Just like beauty, morning routines are very subjective,...

Build a Stronger Core with the No Hands Get Up

 

If you’ve picked up even the slightest bit of kettlebell knowledge you’ll have learned about the Get Up. Not only is it a powerful, full body strengthening exercise, but it’s a great way to assess core, shoulder, and leg strength as well as mobility and coordination. There’s time under tension from the second you start until you bring the bell down safely to the ground.  

Traditionally you’ll be starting from the ground with a bell overhead and work your way up through a series of positions until you’re fully standing. You’ll then reverse the movement and make your way back to the starting position on your back on the ground. 

If we’re talking efficacy and functionality it’s a fantastic movement. Practicing getting up from the supine position is enough for most. Adding in load makes it significantly more challenging. Why is it so effective? For one thing it’s multiple movements in one. For a standard get up...

7 Body Weight Moves and 7 Battle Rope Moves To Get Your Heart Pumping

 

Join me in trying out some of my favourite ways to get the heart pumping using two of my very favourite tools- your own body weight AND (of course) battle ropes!

Lateral Bear Crawl with Shoulder Taps: Fire up that brain power! Begin this exercise in a bear position (shoulders over wrists, hips over knees), ensuring that you have a neutral spine and knees are close to the floor. While maintaining a neutral spine (draw your belly button in) start to move laterally using bilateral movement (opposite arm and leg moving simultaneously) for 3 or 4 steps. Pause, tap each shoulder and repeat in the opposite direction.

Rotational Stationary Lunge Pulse: Start this exercise lunge position with the front leg bent at 90 degrees (watch that front knee doesn’t sneak over your toes!). Place you hands at your ears, or rest them on your hips. As you lower you back knee as close as you can to the floor, begin to rotate through your torso, so that your body begins to turn toward the outside of...
