Lifestyle-Health-Vitality-Workout Tip.

You know it’s been 2 months now since I have eliminated my afternoon coffee and my cravings for it period have ceased.

I drink several cups of organic coffee in the morning and that’s it but what really pleases me is that I don’t need anymore after my last cup where before I would keep going.

I would always have a cup of coffee near me in the afternoon, and this caused me to be in a severe sympathetic dominate state. I would feel tight and stiff all the time, I have ceased foam rolling a lot (I will still use it on determined need) with rocking, rolling, and crawling movements, moving more period.

This has me feeling SO much better. I’m more fluid in movement and clear in mind from adding these movement patterns and kicking afternoon excessive (5-7 cups) of coffee. My core is firing harder and is more developed from the decreased cortisol levels

I used to foam roll everyday during the week. Because I was in that severe catabolic sympathetic dominant state from excessive coffee intake, which impaired my quality of sleep, which impaired my hormonal recovery, my physcogenic recovery, which had me feeling tired a lot, feeling burned out which made me feel quality and that made me feel even worse, cloudiness of mind and procrastination present, while moving stiff and tight.

There are people on medication for these very symptoms! Medication scratches the itch. Lifestyle changes are permanent.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is very true.

So what can you change or eliminate to move you forward faster?

It all flows from lifestyle habits.

Feeling is believing….

How To Workout-How To Lift Weights.

Training is about paying attention to indicators, listening and paying attention to your body in regards to progression or regression for that matter, in your training.

While I do adapt the minimalist approach to my life over all and training, for those with a higher training age, often time you just need more volume in your workouts to blow through a plateau.

While I preach and practice less …is more in a workout and believe in that as factoring into life (social, work, relationship, training, eating, sleep.) stressors in regards to recovery, and progress, don’t just think of adding more volume in a workout per say, but adding it in another day.

Workouts lasting longer than an hour elicit a catabolic hormonal effect in the body, you must factor in workout training volume with the endocrine system and the hormones that are released either aiding or catabolizing precious muscle tissue.

Less is more per workout, minimalist is best yes per day, spread volume out in another day while still factoring in while managing Hi/Low training stressors to make better gains while not going catabolic in your 2 hour + waste of time workouts.

Since adding another day back in my training In have been packing on the muscle, getting stronger by fixing and building up my weak areas, and just feeling a whole lot better with results.

So look at your indicators in your training and adjust accordingly, sprinkle a little more volume in to get back more.
