How Do You De-Stress? - Baristanet | Baristanet | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it
Lucas Eaton's insight:

strange, i have never experienced stress in the pysical manisfestation you described. Its funny to me that your article giving tools on stress soon turned into an add for your favorite spa. I find it very foolish that the one thing that lowers your stress is something that costs an exessive amount of money. You should really consider more price effecient options, like exercise, clean diet, or meditation. Personally momney is one of the main sources of my stress so i dont understand why someone would spend ridiculous amounts to get a body rub, but hey thats just my opinion. However i thinkk that your add for the spa really destroys your credibility and you should conider changing your message.

Does Mindfulness Make You More Compassionate?

Does Mindfulness Make You More Compassionate? | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via Edwin Rutsch
Lucas Eaton's insight:

Interesting, through my own stress management plan i also noticed myself become more compassionate. Im no physcologist but i imagine it has something to do witht he elimination of distractions. When you eliminate distractions brought on by stress it allows you to see the world for the full picture and not the world through the distroted eye of a stressed person. When doing this you ignore the things that make you frustrated and start seeing the world as a philanthropist, a place where one can do good and help.

Foods To Lose Belly Fat Quickly


Via dave77dg8sgw
Lucas Eaton's insight:

None of these get lean fast, loose lots of fat quick diets actually work. People need to learn those are simply marketers tricking them making them think it’s possible to attain an attractive figure in 4 weeks. The first thing that needs to be made clear the fitness models promoting the diet plan are on steroids they are also on many fat burning illegal substances. To attain their physiques would be impossible without the use of illegal drugs.

Cutting down your current body fat percentage for good looking abs.

Cutting down your current body fat percentage for good looking abs. | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via taylor perez
Lucas Eaton's insight:

I’m relatively new to weightlifting I’m about two years deep. I’ve never cut before just run a loosely clean bulk. I don’t monitor my diet much I eat pretty healthy not very high carb or calorie intake about 180g of protein I weigh 190lb. Just from eyeballing myself I would say I maintain a pretty regular 10-11% body fat percentage. I don’t hold to much water over my stomach so I see pretty decent definition, however I have a lot of trouble getting middle separation in between my abs, I would be interested in hearing how far I would have to cut.

Deadlift Dynamite


Via Karlos Deis
Lucas Eaton's insight:

Dead lifting has always been my favorite lift to do In the gym. I find that it is the rawest demonstration of one’s power and strength. However if done incorrectly it can severely mess your back up or other body parts for that matter. I think deadlifts should be taught in high schools it is a safe lift if performed correctly! Injuries are easily avoidable. Nothing is more impressive than when you see someone deadlifting 4 plates like a toy.

Better Squatting For Better Running

Better Squatting For Better Running | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via KreuzFit
Lucas Eaton's insight:

I never thought about how squatting regularly can increase speed and athletic performance. All the basic elements are included in the squat; balance, coordination, power, flexibility and so on. The squat is an essential lift that should be performed by any weight lifter or athlete. Squats along with dead lifts are the two most crucial lifts that can be performed in my opinion. They require the most physical and mental exertion, the mental aspect of these two lifts are horribly overlooked. These lifts are mentally grueling in the way the way that they require you to give everything you have; every last ounce of effort is drained in these lifts if done correctly. After doing all my sets on either of these I feel like vomiting.

How to be More Productive Under Stress

How to be More Productive Under Stress | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson
Lucas Eaton's insight:

One thing i found very significant about this article is the portion where they say divide tasks into to different sections the 50% you can control and the 50% you cannot. The 50% that you can control are things like your job performance, how you communicate with others and your productivity. The 50% you cannot control is other peoples reaction to what you say/do and things that are completely out of your control like accidents unexpected problems etc. I find this division of focus very helpful when managing stress. For instance at my work my job is to stock the shelves everytime a new load comes in, if i dont complete the load i get very stressed out, however sometimes it is not my fault and the load is to large. If i divide my focus and act passively to the fact that i will not complete the load and i communicate the problem to my manager i find there is alot less stress than if i were to try my best to finsih the load then not tell my manager and stress when i wait for his reaction.

Consume Food Immediately Your Workout for Best Results | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via doring gaviolla
Lucas Eaton's insight:

I never thought of how over training decreases your immune system. it makes since when I train to often with no rest days at high intensity going to failure my strength begins to stagnate. If I do this for too long my strength begins to decrease I feel fatigued regularly. I manage my post workout fairly well I usually have a protein shake and a banana. Pre workout meal though for me is a non essential. I am one that likes to intermediate fast so when I workout I am completely fasted and at the end of my fast as well.

Workout Technique: Get Jacked & Shredded at the Same Time ... | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it
Lucas Eaton's insight:

This is a great workout for the novice weightlifter. It would put some good size and take a little fat off the frame of someone that’s 5’8 215lbs and can squat 90% of bodyweight. For us journeymen to advanced type people these workouts are a joke, I promise these workouts alone will never get you below 12% body fat. Also I’ve found a four day split lifting 5 days a week much more effective in terms of mass gains.

Pull Up Bar Exercises

Pull Up Bar Exercises | bodybuilding for lucas | Scoop.it

Via obryantc
Lucas Eaton's insight:

Pull ups are a good exercised but should almost always be performed wide gripped in my opinion. Its great for strength and adding width to the lats, however like squats its one of those workouts where people need to humble themselves. For some people on squats they want to look like a big strong guy, but they lack the strength to do big weight. So to compensate they pile on the weight but don’t go all the way down. People do the same thing for pull ups but to compensate for the shortage of strength they go don’t go wide gripped. People also tend to contract their muscles far too quickly and this can give a bad representation of their endurance.

Is The Bench Press Over-Rated?


Via Jingky Postrano
Lucas Eaton's insight:

I agree that the bench press is over rated, not because it is a bad exercise, but because people think that it represents your overall strength. I think the bench press is crucial when training for strength or for mass. When incorporating the bench into my chest routine I find that I get a fuller chest, I also get a thickness in my shoulders. As for strength the bench press is undeniably a great lift, it activates many muscle groups if performed correctly. It is truly one of the most important compound lift in my opinion. I also think the bench press is done incorrectly far too often. I always seem to find people benching with their elbows flared out dropping the bar directly on their nipples. Correctly their elbows should be angled slightly inwards so the bar drops closer to the sternum. This takes TONS of stress of the rotator cuff and some say even adds strength. I remember when I benched incorrectly I would get a weird pump in my shoulders that I no longer got when I fixed my form.

How to Bulk Up


Via TabletGuy
Lucas Eaton's insight:

It appears buliding muscle is a simple concept. Its nothing but an x and y relationship. Calories in calories out. The more calories, grams of protein and carbs you consume, the larger you will become. I found the tip on sleep to be crucial not only is sleeping the time your body releases HGH but its a good time for your central nervous system to recover.
