Anchoring Experiences – get the freedom you deserve!

So this post is quite timely given that we just had Independence Day…..ahhhh let freedom ring. Must be nice…. I am sitting here listening to my ipod, and a certain song came on, that literally made my heart ache and stomache hurt. I felt a little light headed. Freedom? Yeah right….it’s like getting raked over …

Learnings from Raw Food Diet

I have been travelling since last thursday. A good friend was getting married in Pennsylvania and I have been making the rounds to visit family in NYC/NJ/PA. After the wedding and a few days of parties, I’ve finally made it to home sweet home. My raw food diet is now officially OVER. My original goal …

Broccoli and Protein

Was eating some broccoli (flowerets) the other day and took a look at the package. This food was one-half protein (measured by total calories)! 3g of Protein = 12 calories out of a 25 calorie total serving. I always assumed there was some protein in veggies, but I didn’t know the concentration was this high. …

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change

I was watching the sunset with a wonderful friend last night. We were looking out the windows across an absolutely amazing view of the mountains and the water. The sunset was a radiant redish-purple. Everything was perfect….except for a handful of powerlines literally crossing our view of the sun! I was a little ticked. My …

The Power of Raw Food

I’ve been on a 70% raw food diet for the past 1 week. I feel absolutely amazing. I have a lot to learn to get my diet really dialed in, but so far so good. I have no intention of keeping a 70% raw food diet forever, that seems a bit extreme for where I …

Can Stretching Make You Stronger?

Yes! I’ve just started going back to yoga. I used to be a regular, but for the past few years have been too “busy” (lazy) to go. Yesterday was my fourth class in the past 3 weeks. I was totally fried at the end. Every muscle and ligament in my body was screaming. It felt …

An Inconvenient Truth

Would you pay $10 to see a recording of a slideshow on global warming? What if I said that the presenter was Al Gore? Think not? I sure did. I am just imagining the pitch that Al & Co would have made to the movie producers to get this film made and distributed broadly in …

Static Push Ups: making major progress

Along with the static contraction weight training, I’ve been working on bodyweight exercises. If static contraction techniques in the weight room can help you develop more top-end power and strength, I think that bodyweight exercises are great to build lasting strength and endurance. I think the two compliment each other. Plus, it is just so …

The Importance of Follow Through

I was talking with a Ed (a co-worker of mine) a few weeks ago and the topic of leadership and management came up. Of course, we naturally started talking about Jack Welch, and his latest book “Winning.” I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I have read his other books, and personally …

Peaceful Warrior: an amazing film

I just got back from a screening of The Peaceful Warrior, based on the book by Daniel Millman written over 20 years ago. The film is really outstanding. I recommend that everyone go see it…and tell your friends about it. The sad reality is, movies like this will struggle to stay in the theaters more …

Food Allergies

Yes, I think I am a victim. The problem with food allergies is they are so hard to figure out yourself. I’ve narrowed it down to Dairy or Wheat. Which means I am basically screwed since that’s what I live on. Need to go get tested at he hospital (apparently pretty easy for them to …

I Benched 245lbs Today!

Really, I did. A new personal record. Given that I weight 155 soaking wet I think that is pretty good. I’ve NEVER had that much weight on the bar before. People were giving me funny looks. Wondering if I would be OK pushing that much weight off my chest. You see, I wasn’t worried….because I …

Throw Your Weight Around

Was out with my buddies Kapil and Jeff tonight. Somehow, the conversation progressed to strength training. I have been reading up (and testing for myself in the gym), a style of weight training called Static Contraction. The gist of the technique, is to use extremely heavy weights, during static holds at near your point of …

Strength Train With Your Own Bodyweight

The gym is closed. I’m hungry. I’m tired. I’m lazy. I don’t want to deal with traffic. Some days I just don’t feel like making the trek to the gym. Fighting traffic and dealing with the crowds in the locker room and gym floor are the last thing I want to do after a day …
