Visioning: Leadership Skills of the Future | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it

Before:  250 lbs.  After: 146 and RIPPED!

 

Visioning enables leaders to realize that the future really is their own creation, personally, professionally and relationally.

 

 

 

 

 

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

This works for leaders at the gym too!  This image is of Shayne Miller, an amazing person who I had the honor of helping along his journey. He is now a competitive NATURAL bodybuilder.  He definitely envisioned a fit and healthy future for himself and worked with people he trusted along the way. HIs dedication is simply inspirational.

Actually when this specialist wants to analyze the toxic bacteria, he chases them out of their hiding places with applecider vinegar, and voila, they appear in his testing procedures.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up After A Binge: 3 Ways To Stay Strong After Emotional Overeating & Binging — Lean It UP Fitness | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it
AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Excellent article!  I am so glad someone took the time and effort to properly define "binge". 


From the post:


The binger often consumes between 5,000 and 15,000 calories in a few hours. Bingers often describe themselves as being completely lost in the feeling of food. Essentially, they lose themselves and their emotions in whatever they’re eating.

Mindfulness Techniques: 5 Reasons You Should Try Mindful Exercise - About Meditation | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it
Mindfulness techniques are becoming popular and one of the more potent combinations for achieving deeper mindfulness is exercise and meditation.
AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

This is wonderful post on mindfulness and exercise from an expert on both,  Morgan Mix @ModernMeditator.  


From the post:


 Reasons Why You Should Try Mindful Exercise

Now, many years later, and after a good deal of training, I am finding that there is a fluid and fruitful relationship between my meditation practice and mindful exercise.


Maybe you can relate?


Here are my top five observations on why meditation and working out, among many mindfulness techniques, are such a good combination.


  • Breaking Inertia Is An Inner & Outer Matter
  • Creating Inner Space on the Cushion & The Treadmill
  • The Mind-Body Connection is Profound
  • Measuring Inner & Outer Progress
  • Building Intention, Focus, and Self Confidence

The ultimate fitness guide for office workers - Business Works

The ultimate fitness guide for office workers - Business Works | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it

Business Works magazine: Journal highlighting business, entrepreneurship, success and opportunity. Online and in print

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Wow, I have not downloaded their guide yet, but check this out:


Office workers are not compensating for this sedentary life once they are away from the office, the research suggests 47% do less than an hour of exercise a week.


Again work appears to be part of the problem. Almost a quarter (24%) surveyed can't fit any exercise into their working day and say it's too late by the time they get home to do it.


As a result, 52% are worried about their weight, only 31% are the right weight for their height, 30% say they have worrying stress levels and 53% fear for their health.

Excellent post from Bryan Martinez.  This is helpful for students and parents, BTW.  


From the post:


----------------------------


The healthiest thing around campus was Subway so as much as her and I wanted Subway, what were we going to buy with $4?


Nothing.


So we would end up going across street from campus to Mcdonald’s to buy two mcchickens and a large soda with no ice. It was my friend’s idea to get a soda with no ice because if there’s no ice there’s more room in the cup for soda and who doesn’t want more soda? haha...

Going Gluten-Free is NOT A DEATH SENTENCE!

Going Gluten-Free is NOT A DEATH SENTENCE! | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it
AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

A colleague of mine just found out she has celiac disease and this article is a great resource for her and many of us. While I don't have Celiac Disease, my bodybuilding mentor has taught me many of the benefits of a gluten-free diet. 


I highly recommend glutenfreegal.com for anyone interested in a healthy diet, whether they are sensitive to gluten, or not. 


Here is a great segment from the article:


2 years ago, most people didn’t know what gluten free or Celiac Disease, or gluten sensitivity was. Now, Gluten-Free is on the top ten list of the most overused words that people are sick of hearing.


Yet I wonder, how much further are we along in educating the masses about Gluten, about what exactly having a gluten issue means?


  • what involves having gluten issues?
  • Should I get tested before going gluten-free?
  • what are the benefits of living a gfree lifestyle?
  • what are the consequences of not living a gfree lifestyle?
  • Should I be living a GFree lifestyle?

2. Myth:  It’s not a good idea to train on an empty stomach

The body burns calories even more when you are practicing before breakfast, then on an empty stomach, and this is confirmed by recent research. Regardless, the entry of water into the body can not be reduced.

Low Testosterone in Young Men

Low Testosterone in Young Men | Bodybuilding & Fitness | Scoop.it
AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Good article on the possible causes of low-T and good suggestions on how to address it.  If you need another reason to stop using plastic bottles, here it is:

 

 

From the article:


The million dollar question is why are so many young men having inadequate hormone levels and what can a person do to prevent this problem? There are many theories on what causes this problem and one of them is someone getting too much exposer to something known as BPA or bisphenol A.


This BPA stuff is inside plastic that is used in water bottles; it's used on the outside of cans and leftover containers.

In a study done in China they tested two groups of men.


One group was constantly exposed to BPA for six months and the other group was not. The end result was that the group that was exposed to this chemical had lower testosterone levels, a lower sperm count and more love making problems.


To protect yourself do not heat anything in plastic, this includes the microwave. Reduce the amount of canned food you consume, don't drink out of plastic bottles and use glass containers to store food.
