As luck would have it, today’s the day that you’ve chosen to become a mentally stronger person. You’ve had enough being a pushover. You’ve had enough being trampled and stepped on. Today, you’ve chosen to FIGHT BACK. Your objective is to become assertive, confident and mentally strong. LET IT BE KNOWN, that you’re more resilient than ever before. No more Mr. nice guy.
Mentally strong people tend to be extremely committed to the discipline and craft that they’re pursuing. They do not fear change. To the contrary, they welcome it.
They do not fold under pressure in the face of turbulent circumstances. Conversely, they view it as their playing field. It’s something they’ve conquered countless times.
Hollywood movies often depict ‘binge eating’ as a woman sitting in front of a television watching a love story with a huge spoon and a bucket of ice cream, sobbing after breaking up with her boyfriend. However the reality is far less dramatic and far more common than you might think
Getting in shape isn’t easy. But after all that hard work, how long do we actually maintain it? Turns out that even the great effort we put into training, taking a bit of time off can mean that we become “unfit” much faster than it took us to actually get in shape.
Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release (SMR) technique that has been embraced throughout the fitness industry. This effective and simple to do technique delivers positive, feel good results.
Foam rollers have become easily accessible, either shared at the gym or found in almost any sporting goods aisle to bring home for a minimal investment. This makes it one of the “go-to” pieces of equipment for fitness professionals.
Using the foam roller can deliver improvements in flexibility, muscle recovery, movement efficiency, inhibiting overactive muscles, and pain reduction with just minutes of application!
Doing a stretch before a workout properly prepares our muscles for the activity that we’re about to engage in. Stretching afterwards, on the other hand, helps to encourage recovery. A single stretch will make the muscles, tendons and ligaments more flexible BUT this would be for only for a short period of time. Over time, regular stretching will induce the growth of tissues that will lead to a more long-term increase in flexibility. Remember though if your muscles are sore, stretching won’t necessarily make them more flexible, but rather help them to feel better.
