1. Five Posture Cues To Perfect Your Exercise Form

The reality is, great exercise form is just the ability to maintain good posture throughout the movement. 

“If you get into a good postural position, odds are your form is good. And odds are the right muscles are doing the right work”.

2. Regulation of Food Intake, Energy Balance, and Body Fat Mass: Implications for the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Obesity

“Obesity has emerged as one of the leading medical challenges of the 21st century. The resistance of this disorder to effective, long-term treatment can be traced to the fact that body fat stores are subject to homeostatic regulation in obese individuals, just as in lean individuals. Because the growing obesity epidemic is linked to a substantial increase in daily energy intake, a key priority is to delineate how mechanisms governing food intake and body fat content are altered in an obesogenic environment”.

3.  What Trainers and Gym Owners Need to Know

“The mouth is the source of all calamity. If you talk shit about people, your employees will talk shit about you. Then employees will start talking shit about each other. Pretty soon employees will start talking shit about customers. Before you know it nobody will feel safe around you. Congratulations! You have completely toxified your business”.

4. Saturate, Incubate, Illuminate

“Our goal is not corrective exercise and our goal is not screening. Our goal is no negative results from conditioning and professional fitness coaching or athletic coaching. Unfortunately, no single program can achieve this every time for everyone, which is why data is critical to maximizing results through program modification”.

5. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

“Now, while not giving a fuck may seem simple on the surface, it’s a whole new bag of burritos under the hood. I don’t even know what that sentence means, but I don’t give a fuck. A bag of burritos sounds awesome, so let’s just go with it”.

1. What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier

“Exercise has been touted to be a cure for nearly everything in life, from depression, to memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and more. At the same time, similar to the topic of sleep, I found myself having very little specific and scientific knowledge about what exercise really does to our bodies and our brains”.

2. 17 Things Every Clean Eater Needs to Know

“As above, the thermic effect of calories from macronutrients is different, but a calorie is always a calorie. It can never be anything else. It can never be an antique chair, a bowler hat, or a monkey riding a tricycle. So please stop saying “a calorie isn’t always a calorie.”

3. Troubleshooting the Deadlift

Three common problems that arise with this movement are:

  1. Not pushing the hips in a posterior direction
  2. Flexing the back
  3. Turning the exercise into a squat.

4. The Unspoken Darkside to Training for Performance and Focusing on What Your Body Can Do

“Getting obsessed with reaching a certain goal, and if you don’t reach it quick enough, or worse yet, not at all, it’s easy to feel discouraged. Let’s say you want to  perform a chin-up for the first time, or perhaps you want to squat one and a half times your bodyweight. These are great performance-based goals, but you shouldn’t become obsessed with achieving them”.

5. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

“People often say the key to confidence and success in life is to simply “not give a fuck.” Indeed, we often refer to the strongest, most admirable people we know in terms of their lack of fucks given. Like “Oh, look at Susie working weekends again, she doesn’t give a fuck.” Or “Did you hear that Tom called the company president an asshole and still got a raise anyway? Holy shit, that dude does not give a fuck.” Or “Jason got up and ended his date with Cindy after 20 minutes. He said he wasn’t going to listen to her bullshit anymore. Man, that guy does not give a fuck.”

I’m intolerant to the tolerance and extremes

The cultured man has the obligation to be intolerant.” —  Nicolás Gómez Dávila

I am intolerant to gluten, lactose, strength training with maximum loads (1-3 reps) and a lot of things they say that i need  to carry in the body.
No, I’m not resistant to change. Human beings must work to change for better and and not affraid  of the unknown. But….

Yes, i’m are “intolerant” of extremists of ideas in the ” knowledge”,” science “,” common sense “. Our story  prooved that right?  I think that ….

Yes, I’m  intolerant  at the bread that is not bread, milk which are hormones and other wastes, the olive oil that doesn’t smell like olives, chicken and eggs that is fed from the remains of animals and processed cereals, the cow that don’t know what is herb and don’t laughed, the fish that looks like the planet Mercury withou any balance between Omega 3 and 6, the fruit juices with little fruit, salads filled with sauces that seem more like pesticides, product that enhances the taste because the food has no taste, or be in decay?

I am intolerant to the ones they think that “protein” is “animal protein. Common, really? Yes, you could be vegetarian ore reducetarian and be very strong! Talk (?) to rhino what he eats!

I am intolerant to grains and fruits that came from Cochinchina (exist), on the other side of the world, destroying the population and land just because we say they are miraculous, in fashion.  In my country, Portugal, and here in Switzerland (where i live) we are rich in fruits, vegetables, cereals. I am intolerant to such marketing. Local markets, season, organicc! But it costs so much? Preferable to eat less but with quality (nourishes, feeds) than eating more and “trash”, right?

I am intolerant to those who change their opinions like they change a jacket. A study/opinion  says that it’s bad make stretching and they spread the word; After a few months a new study contradict this and ups, we changed our minds/opinion. Above all we must realize that some people need more strength work, others resistance, others mobility, flexibility, and all, etc, etc. Do you really think for a person that “charged all stress in the shoulders” a lesson from stretch/yoga/pilates/chi-kung/massage  would hurt? Reflect before responding. But, Yes, always depends,….Just move, do it!

I am intolerant to fervent defenders of strength training with maximum loads. Nor is critical neither essential! Strength training, it is essential! But, wait, ah ok: must be to sell more Personal Trainer sessions. Do you really think is functional? How many times are you rised big loads daily/in the week? 0? 1?  If you are an athlete and you need, ok!  but if not: move, carrying loads (not big), turn, pull, push, squat, am I right? Just do it!

Still want to talk about gluten, lactose and dead lift? Be resistant to the “noise”!

Respect food, your body (your temple), your family, read labels, follow the science and: use your intuition by the way. Be!
