28 Day Anti-Fragile Human Challenge

Humans are anti-fragile by nature. The concept of anti-fragility is not that we deflect attacks like a Gore-tex repels water, but that we, in fact, need resistance to grow stronger. Humanity is not totally activated, empowered, or fulfilled without challenge. Resistance activates us and breeds human flourishing. This is the backbone of all training. Resistance and adaptation.

 

We are now witnessing a human spiritual crisis. Across modern society depression, obesity, suicide, and drug overdoses have skyrocketed. We experience the highest standard of living in human history, yet few are fulfilled amid the affluence.

 

 

In the modern environment, necessary pain and challenges are no longer baked into the experience of being a human. We don’t sacrifice and toil for a larger group purpose. We don’t experience the self-actualization, satisfaction, and authenticity endeared through raw, vulnerable experience. We isolate, flee resistance, chase pleasure and remain a shell of our potential.

 

For self-development, you could stand in the mirror repeating mantras for 10 minutes but that won’t amount to a hill of beans without actual action. Inspiration follows action—it doesn’t precede it. Spend that 10-minutes doing a brutal 5-minutes of non-stop kettlebell swings, a 4-minute cold shower, and

Its meteoric rise in popularity owes mainly to the additional opportunities and convenience it provides both clients and trainers:

Whereas a client seeking a personal trainer was once limited to those within the distance they could drive, he or she now has access to some of the best in the world with no geographic constraints.

A Busy Mum’s Guide To Weightloss Success

Being a busy mum can make it feel like your weight loss goals are put in the ‘no time, too hard’ basket, and it’s hard to prioritise yourself when you’ve got a million other things to think about. So, I’m here to give you the guidance, tips and tricks necessary to re-establish your goals and help you achieve your weight loss success!  

Plan with military precision

You need to be prepared and organised in advance.

Preparation means you will be able to eventually cope with having no time, no space, no bandwidth to do anything except what’s directly in front of you. Get a calendar and/or diary and track exactly what demands you have on your time and when each week.  Look for the gaps, or see if you can make gaps by working through the points below. Block into those gaps food prep, exercise, and sleep/downtime.

You’re a busy mum but these are the pillars for weight loss success. So, put them into your plans, and stick to it!

Plan multiple plans

Kids make life chaotic, so you need to have multiple plans in order to respond to the changing circumstances.  

Plan A might be to run laps of

Pine Nut Shells Increase Physical Endurance

For several decades, the number of chronicle diseases has been growing. The main reason for this is the imbalanced diet. Biologists and chemists study natural foods concerning the fact that it can help strengthen health and prevent numerous diseases. They have designed a new concept, which is “functional food products”.

Wild growing raw materials are the prospective sources of biologically active compounds. The Russian Federation has one of the biggest reserves of raw materials. The Eastern Siberia has endless cedar forests that cover territories of the Tyva Republic, Krasnoyarsk Region, Altai Region and the Republic of Buryatia, which is 18 million hectares.

Annually, more than 1 million tons of pine nuts are harvested in Siberia.

Pine nut shells are the source of carbohydrates, minerals and various organic compounds.

Olga Babich, Svetlana Noskova and Stanislav Sukhikh, the researchers of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, together with their colleagues from Kemerovo State University have studied the processed product of pine nut shells.

The carbohydrate-mineral complex is rich in fibres and vitamins.

The researchers have also discovered that it is non-toxic and increases physical endurance, which is why it is recommended as a sports nutrition product.

Lately, the authoritative scientific journal

Jeena lost 83 pounds | Black Weight Loss Success

Transformation of the Day: Jeena lost 83 pounds. Faith, fitness, and Keto are the tools she used to transform. This proud mom of four decided to commit fully to Keto in 2018. After losing 30lbs in 3 months, she was hooked. Check out her story.

I’m a mother of four, and I gained most of my weight after pregnancy. I was nursing and eating whatever the children didn’t finish because I didn’t want to waste food.

I started Keto on Jan 17, 2018, after my youngest daughter’s birthday. I took family pictures and didn’t even post them on social media because I couldn’t even recognize who that person was anymore. I made a promise to myself that I would give myself three months before I thought about quitting or cheating. It took Jesus three days to come back from the dead, and He was perfect! Since I’m nowhere near as perfect as Him, three months was an ideal place to start.

I lost 30 lbs in those three months. Since then, I’ve never looked back! Overall, I’ve lost 83 pounds and have kept it off for 8 months! I have decided to make Keto my permanent way of eating

5 Fitness Myths That Are Ruining Your Results

I’ll level with you…

I’ve probably made every mistake in the book when it comes to my own training.

And I don’t mind admitting it.

When I first became interested in exercise, I joined a gym and fell in love with group fitness classes. In fact, I loved them so much I decided to become an instructor. I got certified to teach nearly every group fitness class you can imagine.

Between my own workouts and all the classes I taught, I was doing more than five hours of exercise daily. I really wanted to get leaner, and I figured that doing more was the best and quickest way to accomplish that.

Oddly, despite all that exercise, my body wasn’t changing as I expected it to. As a matter of fact, when I had my body composition tested at one point, my body fat had increased and my muscle mass had decreased!

I was so frustrated. Why wasn’t I getting leaner?

To add insult to injury, I wasn’t getting stronger, either. I wasn’t any closer to being able to do a single unassisted pull-up or standard push-ups.

What was holding me back?

Turns out I’d been subscribing to some myths that

What Gives? – Naturopathic Doctor News and Review

David J. Schleich, PhD

Because the healthcare and higher-education sectors are in turmoil and many are worried, the role of philanthropy to keep it all going is important to understand. As enrollments in the education sector contract for a while, the value of contributed revenue, in addition to traditional streams such as tuition, medicinary and patient revenue, is especially great. We need to participate in the bounty of philanthropy in order to hopscotch ahead and to step over landmines such as sharply curtailed tuition revenue and escalating costs. The natural-medicine sector has historically been a difficult sell to philanthropists, but the landscape has gentler zephyrs blowing in our direction these days. (May, 1975; Veatch, 1979)

As the third decade of a new century looms, we need to get better at philanthropy. That philanthropic landscape in medicine and health education is sometimes an unfriendly as well as unfamiliar place. The medical profession’s leaders, spinners, and fundraisers catapult forward, assuming some kind of divine right of orthodoxy, bumping aside competitors hither and yon, and doing the work of marginalizing or removing other perspectives on what health means and how it can be achieved. Our story doesn’t get the audiences it needs often
