Inversion Table Before & After Squats

Some of you have discovered the unparalleled benefits of squats.

The almost supernatural musculature it provides the heart. The lower body stability. Enhanced sex appeal with clothes on, and off.

As your squatting weight increases, however, so does the compression of your spine, knees, hips. Not to mention the every day compression of gravity and aging.Image result for photographs of Inversion Table Squats

That’s why the Inversion Table becomes such an invaluable tool. By opening up your spinal column and joints, and fluffing the discs like pillows between the vertebrae, you are unwinding injuries that may be decades old.

I’ve been putting myself on the Inversion Table every day. I also do 8 sets of squats a week. My back has never felt better. Most back problems are fixable if you’re willing to do the work.Image result for photographs of Inversion Table Squats

Other benefits of the Inversion Table are more esoteric. Tanya’s K mentioned her grandfather lived into his 90’s, and stood on his head every day life. You won’t get dementia this way. The Table is better because it doesn’t compress the neck.

Enjoy the de-stressing, jaw-relaxing, youthful appearance that goes with it. Ciao, Pietro

Beach Ready Takes Mental Strength

I like to start cutting up this time of year. Getting rid of the pasty flab that has a way of creeping up on you.

lungesOther than the most brutally pragmatic core workout on the planet, Saturday Morning Abs, cutting up requires putting the hammer down on diet.

You decide. You really decide. There comes a time, you just know. You have the inner strength.  And that robust strength gets reflected externally.

Time to start getting beach-ready now. Ciao, Pietro

The Inversion Table

Hanging upside down has been fixing backs for 2000 years.

The last time you were in this position for any length of time was in the birth canal. For some of us, that was a long time ago. So naturally it take a little getting use too, at first.

It takes an ability to let go of control. But the steepness of the table can be DSC_0745 (2)increased slowly and incrementally, and the benefits make it worth it.

The spinal column gets crushed from gravity over a lifetime, causing height loss. Back pain is often caused by nerves getting caught in the compression. 

The Inversion Tab has great potential to undo the damage-of-gravity to your spine.  You can unravel injuries that happened decades ago.

Ian this week at yoga. See you there! Ciao, Pietro

Getting Cut

Warmer weather brings an opportunity to get leaner. Tweaking your diet for leaner results is more difficult in the dead of winter.

In wintertime, arguably, your body needs more calories and all the vitamins it can get to battle the freezing onslaught. And all the malicious germs and viruses that come with it.

Come spring its time to shed the extra bulk. Just a little sun on your body helps melt fat. You know to re-initiated those time-honoured practices to help facilitate the cutting-up process.Cumin-Scented-Pan-Seared-Salmon-with-Balsamic-Roasted-Vegetables

Cut back on late night meals, for example. Or at least rely more on healthy snacking like fruit, carrots, cellery, almonds, with only one fully balanced meal as close as possible to mid-day.

See you at yoga tonight. Abs Class tomorrow, Weighting-tuesdays .

Ciao, Pietro

Quality of Life

Retirement can look like this. Scuba diving between a thick 8′ Sea Snake and Whale Sharks that bring a tourist economy to El Nido Island of the Philippines.

But it takes a certain level of fitness. As Eberhard’s personal trainer, I’m proud to say I had something to do with that. He’s not called über-hard for nothing :)

Squats, bench press, cardio, yogic stretches is a recipe for full functionality. And longevity. At a time when your none-working-out peers  are in decline.

The other half of the equation is a healthy attitude and an adventurous spirit. Eberhard is a serious traveler: from Afghanistan to Iran, crossing the Pacific on a small sailboat, back-forth to Asia, Europe and many many other places.

Enjoy a beautiful life after retirement. Come join us at Panacea. Ian is back from his holiday to teach yoga this Friday!

Ciao, Pietro
