"Be patient. Mastery of nutrition is a lifetime journey. It may take 2-3 months for your body to feel “clean” enough to actually crave movement and exercise. Also, take a fresh look at movement and what constitutes exercise for you. Don’t necessarily go back to what you have done in the past as there may be underlying friction from past experiences and memories which will hold you back. Be free. Move free. Lastly, move your body out of love for your self rather than out of obligation as that is fear-based motivation and not a sustainable or enjoyable way to approach nourishing your body."

For most people on tumblr, lifting heavy and strength training as a whole are both pretty new concepts. At the school gym I lift at, no one has any idea how to act, disrespect left and right. Here are some tips that will keep you in the know at serious lifting gyms.

1. Never, ever, EVER, walk…

Yup.

  Too often we only think about moving more and moving faster. We need to spend more time working on moving better.

Adidas Powerlifts are only $90.

Yes, I forgot about these. I actually used a pair today and liked em. The heel isn’t as high as most shoe’s, but their definitely a bargain at the price. 

   The Powerlifts are decent, but like homie said, the heel is short, and the sole is kind of squishy. Not a big deal if you’re just getting in to lifting heavy/the Lifts, but you’ll quickly outgrow them. I think time will also reveal that the soles of these compress, thereby shortening the heel even more. It was released to replace the Power Perfect line (which was Adidas’ low budget weightlifting shoe) and appeal to the Crossfit market.

   Also, if you’re a trainer (and can prove it), you can get a discount from Adidas by joining the Three Stripe instructor program. DEALS, SON!

Nice explanation, big homie.

Now let me start this off by saying, this is not a Paleo bash, at all. This is to clear up some confusion around low carb vs. high carb diets.

Paleo is great for fat loss, because its current form is a very low carb diet. It’s true form isn’t that low carb, because the majority of people in the…

"Diet"

   A cut and paste from a recent discussion I had on veganism vs the paleolithic diet. I am vegan, though I do not actively promote the lifestyle (though some people feel as though my mere existence stands as some sort of offense to those who choose to partake in animal-based food). 

….I think that any extremist fad diet (veganism INCLUDED) has limited application and ignores the larger issue of dysfunctional eating while promoting its agenda. What I have been recommending to my clients for years is thoughtful eating - eating unprocessed foods, mostly fruits and vegetables, some meat, grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, all from local, non-factory sources whenever possible.

   If you look at the whole of the modern (post-1800) era of health and physical culture, you’ll see that diet and exercise recommendations have vacillated wildly from vegetarianism to strict carnivore and back again. Regarding this information I first and foremost recommend the book “Muscle, Smoke and Mirrors” by Randy Roach. Paleo is another stop on this pendulum and if you analyze the data from an unbiased perspective, you will see that the way to health, strength and longevity is in eating healthy, unprocessed foods - mostly fruit and vegetables, some mean, grains, legumes, seed and nuts, all from local, non-factory sources whenever possible. 

   Both parties (in this case paleo-ists and vegan/vegetarians) can shout all they want from the rooftops about the dangers and propaganda perpetrated by the other party, but in the end, they’re picking and choosing data to fit their argument. You’ll notice key points glossed over and left out by BOTH SIDES. The picture that develops (from both sides) is a critique of our current system of food production, which is severely flawed and is providing the general public with hyper-processed, nutrient-void food. So in the words of Michael Pollan (an author who promotes eating meat, GASP!), “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
