Learning A Useful Tool

Curling, arching, twisting should be done almost daily, or at least whenever that all-too-familiar stiffness creeps into the spine.

The other areas of primary focus are hamstrings, groin and hips. And calves. You may work on these issues while standing at your computer, or waiting for the subway.stretch

Daily stretches rarely last more than 5 minutes. They are superficial but take the edge off. One full yoga class a week is required to make any real progress. Then those quickies on the road take on a real significance.

Yoga isn’t just about limber joins. It’s about calming the nervous system. You learn a tool for unwinding anxiety. You learn to breathe, meditation. You step back from the assertive pursuits of life, and experience acceptance and receptivity.

Yoga is a healing art. And a science. Don’t deny yourself the pleasure.

Ciao, Pietro

Unstuck In Your Ways

Know your numbers. On the next blood test make sure you call your doctor to get the numbers for your liver, kidneys, PSA, cholesterol, etc. Keep on eye on your blood pressure. Your lungs, sinuses.

So you know what to work on.  Information is power. But knowing your weaknesses is of no value if you lack the ability to change. Adaptability requires you to quit this or that. Or pick up certain routines.

The perfect bowel movement is green, I say. I like to do a round of liquid chlorophyll once in a while, a month or so of daily caps of Vital Greens gives my immunity system a boost. That alkaline infusion gets rid of acidity in the alimentary canal.

Get rid of your itchy throat too by knawing on raw ginger until your throats heat up. Do it for a few days, it works. I’m also taking the expensive orally ingestible Frankincense oil. I’ll let you know it how goes…

Weight-lifting Tuesday tonight! Ian this Friday for yoga!

Ciao, Pietro

The Original Sin

Become aware of the insidiousness of sugar. It’s everywhere, almost unavoidable. If your immunity system is lagging,  try systematically cutting back on your sugar intake.

Sugar is in your morning coffee, most commercial yoghurts,  peanut butter, carton juices, alcohol turns to sugar in your body, not to mention pastries, sauces, pop has crazy amounts, anything processed.sugar-health-risk

Sugar is food for cancer. It really boosts cholesterol, which in turn increases the risk of heart disease. A perfectly balanced workout routine,  combined with restful sleep, forgives a lot of sins.  Make sure sugar isn’t lurking in the shadows behind you.

Discipline is powerful. The ability to alter habits and lifestyle regardless of age is the best weapon you got. The discipline of working out infiltrates every aspect of life. Take aim at sugar.

Don’t forget the discipline of Friday Night Yoga, 730 pm. And Saturday Morning Abs.

Coming Back to Battling The Bulge

Don’t get flabby. Abs Class is back Saturday, Sept 8 @ 10 am.

Make your workout the highlight of your day. Because it is, in fact, the most important thing you do, for you. All other activities pail in significant to facilitating your health. So make it the priority it deserves to be.muffin top

Come back to battling the bulge. It gets a little easier ever time you do. And results come quicker. The profound benefits of kneading the underbelly organs are underappreciated. Love Handles and Muffin Tops are surgically removed.

20 minutes of concentrated effort is applied to the upper and lower back during this class. Do this, plus yoga, which starts back up on Friday, Sept 14 @ 7:30 pm. I guarantee you’ll have the best back you’ve ever had.

nice absTo protect your back just shave off a little depth on your Deep Squats. Make your squat a little less deep, if your back is a concern. Because the tendency is to lean forward at the bottom end of the squat. And that puts your back in jeopardy.

Squats are another thing we do in Abs Class. Massively beneficial. You won’t find a class like this anywhere.

Weight-lifting Tuesdays starts on the 18th.

Your good old trainer, at it again. Ciao, Pietro
