2 Supplements You Might Need 100%

An annoying thought, isn’t it?

You are pushing yourself every day, yet you can’t help but wonder if you’ll ever really start feeling better about yourself.

When will that moment finally come?

 

You are checking off all the boxes.

Eating healthy foods, sleeping as good as you can, replacing your complaining attitude for a positive one.

But you still seem to feel like crap.

You feel disappointed once again, looking for the ‘next new’ thing that will do it for you, why shouldn’t you?

 

Good question. I can give you a few strings to pull on and to experiment with.

But the reality is that something as simple as a shirt is made of millions of strings.

Let alone the human body.

 

There are however a few big strings that everyone needs to pull to see what happens.

Dealing with your ‘nutritional deficiencies’ is a HUGE one in this case.

You might not know this, but more than 50% of people is deficient in anyone of these nutrients.

In some countries even more.

Here is a short list of highly common deficiencies, how many might you be suffering from?

2 Exercises For Front Split Flexibility

It just didn’t really seem that important. Until recently.

Last week after months of attempting full leg raises without success you finally decided to start working on your flexibility.

Red-cheeked, with pure agony on your face you reached for your toes, to realize you couldn’t even pass beyond your knees.

Those 10 muscle ups you recently crossed off your to-do-list didn’t prepare you for a simple exercise that a 2-year old can do without even warming up.

 

Why haven’t you spent any time on getting more flexible? Why do you always feel so weak when attempting to stretch? Don’t you want to do the most advanced skills?

Surely, there has to be something wrong with your muscles.

When you come out of your stretch, you usually look and feel like a 98-year old who just got hit by a car.

So you tell yourself that your muscles are genetically short.

You aren’t stiff because you haven’t worked on your flexibility, you are stiff because your mom and dad made you that way.

Do you recognise the feeling? The thought?

 

After all, we never really want to blame ourselves and take responsibility if the answer would be that we were simply: “Too lazy”.

If you were put under anaesthesia you’d be able to do full splits.

Lack of flexibility means that you are weak in that area of your body, that’s why your body blocks you from getting into that position to protect you.

The good thing? You can win your body’s trust back. Thankfully, it’s forgiving.

Even you can get a front split. Yes, you can become flexible.

Your Road To The Straddle Planche

When you look back at your life what do you want to able to look back at?

Would you pay attention to what you’ve earned?

Would you recall your political stand points? Would you think about the cool clothes you used to wear?

Or would you think about what you learned and discovered?

The people you changed and inspired?

What you developed into?

 

The future still looks bright for you.

Plenty of potential. Your body is still adapting. You can take control of your diet and health.

And your deepest desired? Well, a little bit of work can bring you a whole lot closer.

Because you see, it’s not only about what you achieve, but it’s also about the person you need to become to achieve those things.

To achieve this move, you need to become non-quitting, hard-working and dedicated.

But most of all, you need to become ‘inspired’.

2 Potent Roots To Supercharge Your Recovery

Weird feeling, isn’t it?

Realising what you can actually do with just your body weight can be both exciting and terrifying at the same time.

The responsibility is all on you.

 

Not on a gym 50 miles from where you live.

Not on the highly time consuming courses you’ve been following.

Not on being a father or mother with a full time job and 2 kids.

You know how important it is to stay strong and healthy, not only for yourself, but also for the people that mean a lot to you.

 

On the other hand, it still isn’t easy.

I mean, becoming stronger never was and never will be easier than it is right now.

But with the right tools you can make it less hard, most of these tools -just like training with your own body- are so cheap and effective that you simply wouldn’t believe it.

 

It’s a shame, because they work. The difference? Marketing companies cannot patent these ‘natural and powerful’ boosters. So you never hear about them.

If you could save yourself a lot of pain and discomfort, would you?

I use these two simple roots to recover faster, get healthier and become stronger.

I suggest you do the same.  (more…)

How To Use Eccentric Training For Faster Progress

It’s the holy grail of calisthenics training.

Highly needed, but rarely used.

I’m talking about eccentric loading.

 

Imagine yourself driving a Formula 1 race car.

Your are speeding over the road, passing your competitors as if they are standing still.

The crowd is going wild at every corner, because you make the unimaginable look easy. Like the next Verstappen.

And then in the final turn, right before you finish in world record time, get 100k in prize money and go into the books of history, you decide to release the gas.

You stop holding the steering wheel and decide that you are finished with the race.

 

That’s what you are doing with your pull ups, chin ups, push ups and all your exercises.

You take your foot off the gas, right before the finish.

It’s a shame, because you are skipping the rewarding part of the race.

Let me tell you how you can cross that finish line full throttle and get most out of your exercises.  (more…)
