Dynamic Warm Up is super important. There is numerous reasons to it right? First off, it’s a psychological preparation so you’re getting your mind ready to go into the actual training session. It activates the nervous system so it helps you with strength, endurance, cardiovascular helped in the training.
But, the number 1 reason we do it is for injury prevention. Clients who are consistently not warming up to activate the heart rate, raise the core temperature, get the joints lubricated are going to end up with those joints aches and pains that start to build up each time they do not warm up.
Warming up in a proper way is how most people should be warming up and will get the most benefit from it. Most people will do 5-10 minutes of cardio to get their heart rate up which is fine, it gets your core temperature raise, it gives psychological preparation but those people that do that versus what we do in training will get to see the difference. They will feel stronger, they will feel more mobile, they will have more flexibility, more range of motion, psychologically will feel better and so, the results will be drastically better.
I will post later on a good Dynamic Warm Up that you can do on your own in about 5 minutes and a lot of those things are actually neurological activations…
“Hey guys! Ben here, Precision Nutrition Coach. And, today again I’ll be talking about supplements. The supplement I’d like to speak about today is actually it’s a mineral. And it’s actually deemed to be “miracle mineral”, that is how beneficial it is for you. This mineral in particular is used for over 300 different cellular processes in the body; so that’s just how important it is. It is used for everything in the body. The problem however is almost everybody is deficient. You can go out and buy a magnesium supplement. However, the probability that it all gets absorbed in the body is very low because most magnesium supplements are the wrong and they also have a poor absorption rate. Go out and look at just a regular product like a multi-vitamin, multi-mineral. Look down the label the mineral, look at the magnesium. I am almost a hundred percent sure it’s going to say magnesium oxide and what magnesium oxide is go back to your days when you’re in high school or college. Remember when your professor gave you that strip of magnesium, the metal strip. They told you why they don’t fire, you lit it on fire because it’s very fun it burned up. What was left over? it was a bunch of cinders, little bits and pieces. That is magnesium oxide.It’s the waste product of a burned magnesium. So that’s actually what is in those mineral supplements and a lot of magnesium supplements.
However, here at EarthFIT we have Pico-Ionized Magnesium supplement. What happens is it’s actually the highly beneficial magnesiums that your body requires and the pico-ionization, it makes the magnesium particles very very tiny. This is beneficial for you because what’s going to happen is there’s tiny particles as soon as you take in the magnesium they get sent right into a digestion and assimilation. So they go right into the body, right into the bloodstream and the Pico-Ionization is also very important because as soon as it gets assimilated into the bloodstream wherever you’re deficient in the body, any part of the body. Your body is able to recognize that and send that particular magnesium right to those areas. So, let’s say your arm muscles or your leg muscles it gets sent right to those areas or even your organs as well.
Now, you may be asking why do I need magnesium? Magnesium because like I said earlier, it is used for so many processes in the body. When you’re deficient almost everything in the body is running sub-optimum. So, when you could be running at 100% if you don’t deficient in magnesium, you might be running at 80% or 70% or even less. Think of this in terms of an analogy of a car without the oil in it or without an update on the car. It’s running suboptimally when it could be running much better. This is your body without magnesium.
So by taking a magnesium, you’re going to increase your protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is the building of muscles. So you’re coming in doing your EarthFIT workouts and your building muscles so you can burn more fat and get stronger. By taking a magnesium, you can increase your protein synthesis, it also increases the assimilation, digestion and absorption of your different nutrients so it breaks down fat in the body; so, it breaks down your carbs, fats and proteins. Your goal in here a lot of you is burn fat so it’s helping you burn more fat. It also helps detoxify the body as well so this will help cleanse everything out, give you regular bowel movements. A lot of people when they are not having magnesium they have irregular bowel movements, it is because everything is tensed up. A
magnesium is known as the calming herb. So by calming everything, it helps relax away things in the body so it helps the muscles relax and you can have a regular bowel movements. So that is one of the benefits as well.
Another benefit of it being the calming mineral is that being very calming it decreases the stress in the body, it is a natural relaxant so it can promote better sleep. And then also because you are coming and doing the hard training sessions here at EarthFIT, every time your muscle contracts it uses calcium but when it needs to relax it requires magnesium to relax so you might get cramps, this is an imbalance of the calcium and magnesium ratios. But also because during the workouts you are using calcium, magnesium, calcium, magnesium every time you contracts and relax the muscle it depletes the minerals in the body. So after a workout your minerals have been depleted along with your proteins and other nutrients in the body. This is why after your workout you need proteins and other things like that but because you depleted the minerals that stores you now depleted it, you need to replenish them after the workout. So again, this is Ben, a Precision Nutrition Coach talking about the magnesium supplements.”
“Hey! What’s going on? A quick video for you about something that is vital for your health and wellness. And this has to do with… Oxygen. All right!
So this is something that every single day should be extremely important; something that you should be conscious of and if you are unconscious of it, it can lead to pain, other health issues and tons of different ailments. Okay, so if you are not taking in the oxygen that your body needs on a daily basis, you will end up suffering a specific ailment. It could even be emotional so I want you just to try this simple trick just to show you how oxygen levels affect your perception of reality.
So picture an orange as you exhale. I want you to exhale and visualize an orange, close your eyes visualize the orange and exhale. Then I want you to inhale and visualize an apple. Okay? Take 2 seconds to do that and then tell me what you see; you can leave a comment below.
Typically what you’ll find is that as you exhale the fruit will seemed more distant and further away, right? And it will also seem like it’s dying sometimes people will say that they see maggots coming out of it or it’s something grotesque is happening to it, right? And then the apple as you inhale will be larger, bigger, more plump better colors.
The reason being as you exhale – which is also to expire – meaning like if your body feels like it’s going to expire like it’s gonna die, your brain is telling you that you’re getting rid of the action of it. That’s how the brain works on a very deep level and so it alters your perception of reality because it conserves everything else for the body to function. So you can no longer access prefrontal cortex as well with limited oxygen. Prefrontal cortex is where we’re allowed to visualize things, that’s the human part of the brain that allows us to think in the future, visualize things and create our reality. When you inhale you can see and visualize things better. So that’s just one simple thing that allows you to see the effect that oxygen has on your perception of your reality. So imagine this: you’re sitting down at your desk all day, tensed, tightened, you breathe from your chest, very shallow breathing right? And then you start to feel aches and pains in your back, you start to get headaches, all this different things pop up… Symptoms right?
So, how we should breathe? Deep belly breaths [breathing] into the belly and then out. This will not only affect your perception of reality, it will also help you digest things better, you will burn more calories and people will associate with you better; because when we look at somebody, if we sense that there in fight or flight we are going to categorize them if they’re friendly. Will they help us feed me or bring me to my goal? This is deep on the subconscious level or are they a threat to me, right? If someone’s in fight or flight, they’re typically a threat to you right? If someone’s breathing from the belly they are on a relaxed state, they are more calm, and they are more appealing to us even on an unconscious level.
So those are just small things that have the ability to affect everything so your brain will function differently, your body will function differently, you will have more energy, right? Imagine that just one simple thing that you do daily is inhaling, letting your belly expand, inhale through the nose, exhale through the mouth. If this becomes an instinctual process, then you will change your whole day, you will feel better all around. Alright, so I hope that helps you. What we find is typically most people are living in fight or flight all day, they are tensed up, they breathe shallow in the chest and this prevents them from truly feeling good, relaxed, rested, digested completely throughout the day. Alright, so I hope this tip helps deep breaths. If you can’t do it all day, take 3 sets each day: morning or breakfast, lunch, dinner. Take 10 deep inhales into your belly, hold the breath in there for about 3 or 4 seconds and then exhale. This will actually saturate your body with oxygen you should be instantly feel relaxation and ultimately feel better. Alright so I hope that helps. Have a good day! Ian Hart checking out.”
“Hey guys! Ben here, Precision Nutrition Coach. I’m going to be talking to you again about supplements today. The supplement I’d like to speak with you about today is going to be highly beneficial for you because what happens is a lot of people they have a lot of joint inflammation; their shoulder hurts; their back hurts; there are people walking around their knees hurt. Essentially, you can almost ask any different person they’re going to say this hurts and you ask them why they’re like it’s inflamed. So with this supplements going to help you do is decrease the amount of inflammation in your body while also helping you burn more fat.
The reason people aren’t getting enough of this is because we are eating too much of the wrong foods. The supplement I am specifically talking about is an Omega 3 which comes from fish oils – that’s the one we’re going to be talking about today. The reason people aren’t getting enough omega 3s is they’re eating too many omega 6, it skews with the balance of the omega 6 and omega 3 ratio. Way, way back in our ancestors past and everything, we used to eat a lot more fish and things that had omega 3s in it. Now we eat a lot of meat products and things like oils and all the processed foods so that pushes the omega 6 ratio. So the ratio you want to have is about 4:1. Right now most people are eating a 20:1 or 40:1. So, not getting nearly enough omega 3s and getting way to omega 6’s.
The reason this causes the problem is the omega 6 is causing the inflammation in the body, they cause restriction of the blood vessels, they cause coagulation in the blood, they cause restriction in the airways and they cause the pain in the joints where the omega 3s do the complete opposite. They are anti-inflammatory, they are anti coagulants, they increase the airway pathways in the body and they eliminate pain. So you want to get that ratio closer to the normal level and you may say to yourself “Hey, I eat fish you know I eat fish all the time.” Ask yourself this question:
Have you eaten fish today?
Did you eat fish yesterday, or last week, or anytime in this past month, and how much?
Because the amount of fish that you actually have to consume to get that proper amount of omega 3s is about 3lbs. Each serving of fish is about 250-500mg of omega 3s. You need several grams of omega 3s a day to get the benefits.
So the benefits of consuming omega 3 supplements are going to be like I spoke earlier:
A decrease in joint pain and joint inflammation
Increase in fat burning and your metabolism
How does it occurs is omega 3s cause a turn on a particular part in the body called peroxisomes within your cells. The peroxisomes, they digest the fat and they break down the fat differently from other different parts of the body, different cells in the body. So the omega 3s activate the peroxisomes. This increases the amount of heat that is release in the body by 30-40%. More heat being released means the metabolism is working even harder and also reduces the amount of energy that is actually produced by fat breakdown. This is actually beneficial for you because if less energy is being produced for each gram of fat that is being broken down. Your body has to actually break down more fat to get the required energy for the activity you’re trying to do so it actually burns more fat with the activation from the omega 3s.
The supplement that we have here at EarthFIT is the AdvoCare OmegaPlex. This product, it has a maintenance dosage of 2 soft gels and this is going to give you a maintenance just for optimum health. However, if you want the fat burning benefits and the anti-inflammation benefits that will help decrease the pain in the shoulders you are currently having, decrease the pain in your back, your hips, your knees, eliminate all types of inflammation in the body and increase the fat burning, you want a minimum of 3 grams of omega 3s. The OmegaPlex that I have here it has per serving which is the 2 soft gels 1 gram of omega 3 so you need 6 softgels to get the optimum benefits, the anti-inflammatory and the fat burning benefits. So 6 soft gels is going to give you 3 grams and that’s the minimum dosage required to get all the benefits from omega 3s.”
I was put on meds at a young age, oblivious to the long term consequences. They could have potentially destroyed my life; in fact, they almost did. I am lucky that I didn’t become a statistic; rather, I woke up at one point and did what ever I needed to do to take my life back. I see so many people who are on meds nowadays struggling, and this is one of the many reasons I ended up in health and fitness industry: to help people wake up and take control of their lives, to help people get their physical and mental health back. People are waking up to the fact that these meds are dangerous and can have dire consequences. Many people who come in for a fitness assessment say things like, “I refuse to go on medication.”. They are searching for holistic approaches.
Rather than rushing to medication, most people can correct issues with diet, exercise and natural remedies that Mother Nature provides. I am positive that as a society, we do not have so many ailments to justify medicating over 70-80% of the population. For me, it was a choice to believe that there is something physically and mentally wrong with me so that I need medication to correct the issue OR to make the necessary changes so that my physical, nutritional, mental, and spiritual health were in harmony, allowing me to flourish.
We are perfect beings. We don’t give ourselves enough credit: we are powerful beyond our imagination, and we have infinite power to direct our lives as we see fit. If we don’t believe this, we can be easily persuaded to medicate unnecessarily, giving our responsibility and power over to big pharma. I will take my chances with diet, exercise and meditation over medication any day. I choose to take responsibility for my own health mentally and physically. How about you?
Regular exercise to maintain good health and fitness is vital to live a healthy, happy, and stress free life. There are many benefits of daily exercise (like staving off disease) and there are various ways to do exercise. You can get signed up at one of the many health and fitness centers in Beaufort SC or perform workout at home. Decide yourself about attending the gym or going it alone at home, but most of the experts will suggest you to join a good gym. The gym or Beaufort health and fitness center brings some sort of regularity in your exercise. If you decide to workout at home then you may not have a routine despite the fact that the tools are right under your roof. Or the routine might be just that – routine… without progress. Beaufort SC has quite a few health and fitness centers.
A Beaufort health and fitness center is supposed to be designed to provide you all that you need for a workout. Some Beaufort health and fitness centers in SC are preferred because they provide you with the option of a personal trainer. This trainer can help you in numerous ways, e.g. if you are not familiar with different exercises, then he or she will help demonstrate the movements. If you are not sure about selecting some exercise to start with, the Beaufort health and fitness trainer will assist you after mapping out the best possible exercise routine for you. Also, this is truly the best way to push you toward your Beaufort health and fitness goals since a great trainer should have the ability to push you to your limit in the safest, healthiest way. In Beaufort SC, you can join a great health and fitness class to develop your interest in exercise. Moreover, daily workout with a group of people can motivate you a lot. Meeting different people and having a chat with them will make you socially active. In this way, the exercise will become a lot of fun for you, and you will automatically become regular. Beaufort Health and fitness centers also provide a variety of equipment-related exercises that a health and fitness trainer can help you with. Therefore, you will be assured that exercise equipment is well managed.
If you are shy or self-conscious, you can get the personal attention of one-on-one training from a Beaufort health and fitness expert. But it is key to choose the right trainer to assist you in your health and fitness goals. Someone that knows how the body works. If you have a busy schedule a good health and fitness center should have a flexible schedule to offer you morning or nighttime workout schedules so you can easily manage your time. There is another option to workout – you can buy certain health and fitness DVD’s instead of going to a health club in Beaufort SC. But that can be at your own risk, since you will not have the real true guidance of a fitness trainer. In short, you have many options to workout, but the first thing needed the stimulus to start. The next step is finding the right health and fitness club with the best trainers. That place is EarthFIT.

Before I begin, let me start off by saying that if you are easily embarrassed, then this workshop is not for you. The reason being, we may be doing some WEIRD movements in a room filled with people you may or may not know.
If you can get past a few weird movements then you will find that this will be one of the most powerful workshops you’ll attend in your life.
I will be revealing simple techniques that can dramatically change your life and will only take a few minutes a day.
You will learn exercises that will instantly reduce stress and “perceived threat” to the body and at the same time increase your health and fitness results. These are very low cost but super high value techniques.
If you saw my last email, you know that percieved threat can dramatically reduce your movement and strength and can increase pain patterns.
There is a Hierarchy of Threat that the mind deals with and when you reduce threat to the mind – whether it is real threat or percieved – the body will MAGICALLY perform at its best. It really is quite magical. You might not even believe some of the things you’ll see at our workshop until I prove them to you, but you have to see this in person to be a believer.
