Get Your Inner Neanderthal On

THE BRAZILIAN FLAG

THE BRAZILIAN FLAG – BANDERIA DO BRASIL – ORDEM E PROGRESSO

The next time your better half calls you a caveman or cavewoman, take it as a compliment regarding your highly evolved eating habits. 70% of the calories we eat today come from refined sugars, flour and vegetable oils. We’re hard-wired as primates to find something that’s sweet. We’ve taken that sweet and put it together with fat and we call it a donut. The Paleo Diet has been steadily adopted by the athletes worldwide to help get them in touch with their inner Neanderthal by fasting for a day here and there and chasing grueling workouts with brontosaurus-size quantities of meat. The bottom line is the diet is not complicated. Eat the food that you are adapted to in your genetic niche, and you’ll be OK. So what does it take to go Captain Caveman? (Hint: it’s definitely not hoarding copious amounts of mastodon meat in a separate cold storage unit in Alaska) Do some hunting and gathering in the outside aisles of your grocery store and stock up on protein rich in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, and lean meats and fresh fruits and vegetables. You can skip the dairy and grains section of the outside aisles. They are a no-go in the Paleo Diet philosophy. “Humans never ate dairy products. Can you imagine trying to milk a wild animal? That only occurred about 10,000 years ago. Lastly, get sunlight. Homo sapiens are meant to be outside (My Fellow Michiganders know this), not cooped up in dimly lit offices hunched over computers choking down a bag of microwave popcorn for lunch. Remember like the  T Shirt reads “Cavemen do it better”.

Dynamic Warm Up Tough Spot Style

A dynamic warm up can be defined as a warm up that simulates what your work out will be like. Many beginning lifters and speed trainee’s think of a warm up as riding a stationary bike or walking on a treadmill for five minutes before they begin their workout. Although this heightens their heart rate, which is one of the goals of a warm up, it doesn’t properly warm up the muscles that are going to be used in the training session. Another important aspect of a warm up is to excite your Central Nervous System (CNS) and other neuromuscular systems . This is especially important in the Russian Conjugate method of training. The reason it is important is because the  CNS is responsible for recruiting muscle fibers in order to perform a movement. By warming up the CNS you can improve your muscle reaction time and be more explosive in your lifts as well as avoid injuries.
