Is There Such a Thing As a Free Personal Trainers?

Obviously there are many advantages to having a personal trainer. Personal trainers are not just for use as workout partners but to advise you on nutrition and develop an exercise program specifically designed to help you meet your goals. Unfortunately gyms are notorious for trying to get you to sign up with an expensive personal trainer, and private trainers can be incredibly costly. While there are many diet books, nutrition programs and exercise magazines few they can be flawed as they are not tailored to your individual needs.
Amazingly at least one supplement company is offering free personal trainers! OK, of course the catch is that no doubt you will get a couple emails and suggestions on the use of their supplements. However this is a great opportunity to get a personalized diet and exercise program designed specifically to help you reach your goals. This was actually discovered accidentally after ordering some fat burners from Cellucor online, the makers of the super powerful D4 thermal shock.
You receive an email from one of their personal trainers, fill out a short questionnaire about your current weight, diet and exercise routine as well your desired goals and time frame and they will design an eating plan and workout program for you. Clearly this is much better than paying huge amounts of money for the same advice, or spending even more money on researching tons of different diets and exercise programs trying to find one that suits you when you can have a professional assist you for free.
Cellucor is probably most famous for it’s fat burners and weight loss supplements, but carries a full line including muscle building products. Their upcoming coming competition should also give you the extra motivation you need to get ripped. This summer they are running an 8 week slim down competition. Whoever shows the most improvement will win flights to Miami and a cruise for 2 to Jamaica!…

The Odd Thing Is That The Martial Arts Are Backwards

The martial arts being backwards is a strange concept, but when explores the physics behind them, there is an undeniable truth.
The prime rule of a fight is that distance will collapse. The combatants must travel from foot range to punch to knee to kick to elbow… to clinch.
A fighter who can derail this sequence and avoid the clinch, and therefore fight at the distance he wishes and is strongest at, is the fighter who is going to win. And that means that he has controlled space.
Instead of letting space collapse, he has made sure that space exists.
Now, most people train to collapse distance, and to introduce force to their opponent’s person. People becoming Martial Arts smart, however, do the reverse, they train to keep the distance, to control the distance.
Thus, the proper evolution of martial arts is away from striking and towards flowing.
Such arts as karate, kenpo, taekwondo, and the other striking arts, train for brute force, impact, hit the guy in the face.
Arts such as Pa Kua, Aikido, Tai Chi, and the various wudan style arts train to keep distance, manipulate incoming flow, and guide the fist to their benefit.
In the beginning, one goes forward in the martial arts. Push ups and sit ups, punching the bag, kicking and fighting and contesting.
In the end, the end being that point at which one gives up the study of force for flow, one goes backward in the martial arts. Avoiding push, manipulating throw, harmonizing with an opponent so that there is no collision and no force.
Of course, some people cannot give up the joy of combat, the thrill of body collision, the meaty sound of a body being slammed on the mat. They will live long lives that are half bound. They will go in only one direction, the direction of the collision, and remain blind to the other direction.
Does man need to collide? Does man need to contest? Or can man study force so that he knows force, but realize that there are two directions to a punch, two sides to a fight, and two halves to an art?
Does man need to hold out his punch that others may run into it? Or can he just hold out his hand and accept the intention of his fellow man, and transfigure it into warmth and glory?
We are all men, and we are all possessed of the dichotomous nature. To let one side of our personality hold sway is to cut ourselves in half, to wound ourselves, to be blind and oblivious to our own potential.
Each technique is a fist, and the response need not be a like fist, but can be a handshake.
But this will not be seen until we study the martial arts backwards.…
