Eat or drink something too hot? Relieve a torched trap by sucking on a banana!
The number one way of thrashing your headphones is how you store them. This is a cool tip that will keep your buds bad ass not to mention clean. Recycle an old mint tin or card case to keep your earphones sound. How do you like them apples, no more banged up olufsons!
I have no love for wearing a glove during your workouts. Not only are they a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, they do not protect your hands from callousing. They kill your grip strength on pulling exercises and can add inches to already thick bars making it even harder. They can screw your technique.
The thickness of the gloves can make it difficult to keep the bar close to your wrist on bench and press leading to rolling of the wrists which causes injury. The only time I play it safe and wear a glove is if it’s freezing conditions or I have an abrasion so I don’t get an infection. If you are worried about rough palms then Brandon says, ” Get a manicure!” So next time you lift, do it bare!
How do your gym shoes “rank”???
Are your runners getting a little rancid? An easy solution, besides my fit favorite anti- fungal orthotic insoles Life Step by Dr. Joseph, is Tea Tree oil! You can put 20 drops of tea tree oil in a spray bottle with one cup of water. Shake well then spray away the rank in your shoes. For an double dose of deodorizer spray on your feet when you get out of the shower. Let your shoes and feet dry completely before sporting. After all it was the dank that made you stank!
Car rides can often times be boring, when we get bored we usually gravitate towards the action of eating. There is nothing nutty about always keeping a bag of raw Almonds
in your car. Almonds are a great source and combination of fat and protein that are much lower in calories than many other nuts and healthier than most foods we grab to satisfy hunger cravings.
Your stomach and your abs will thank you for those nuts.
Give yourself a standing ovation!
Good Posture – slumped shoulders and lethargic movements often times are signs of low self confidence. Practice good posture in and out of the gym and you will feel more confident. Good posture and holding your body in perfect alignment during your workout will help protect your joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Generally speaking this posture can be followed as such:
-Stand shoulder width apart
-Knees slightly bent
-Slightly tucked pelvis
-Chest elevated (tits up)
-Shoulders gently pressed down away from the ears and drawn back behind you.
-Good punching wrist position.
-Jaw slightly opened
