How to Eat Clean

We all know what we should do and how to do it. If not I have over 2500 posts here to teach you. Really though this crystallizes a lot of what I  and my family love to see. Less refined food, more protein, lots of water and small meals.

Do you eat this way? What do you think of changing your diet to eat more healthy?

CrossFit Experience form a Fitness Pro



I myself have never tried Crossfit but have always been interested in this form of exercise of flipping tires and doing exercise that is not based on just barbells, dumbells, or or treadmills. Has to be good but word is that this is super tough exercise workouts.

What is Crossfit?

While CrossFit has been sweeping the nation for some time, many are just getting familiar with the workout style that has revolutionized the fitness industry.  The format and style of the classes have come under scrutiny for their intense nature and explosive moves, which calls in to question how safe this program is for the average Joe, or someone just starting out a fitness routine.

ACE Exercise Physiologist, Jessica Matthews, visited her local CrossFit gym in San Diego to find out what the CrossFit movement is all about.  Here are Jessica’s tips for those interested in joining:

  • Know what you’re getting yourself into:  CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that focuses on everything from coordination to power through an assortment of randomized physical challenges.  You will be doing box jumps, lunges, pull-ups, kettlebell swings and more exercises that strive to provide a total-body workout.  While the workouts may seem short, only prescribing three exercises on occasion, don’t be fooled – you will be doing an intense workout.
  • Do your research: Before starting at a CrossFit gym, inquire as to what certifications, training and education the trainers hold.  Seeking out individuals with an NCCA-accredited personal training certification, along with the mandatory CrossFit Level 1 credential and other relevant continuing education, is important to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable Crossfit experience.
  • Select the proper attire:  Make sure to wear clothes that will allow for maximum movement and optimal cooling, as you will break a sweat.  Shorts, tank tops and pants are all appropriate wardrobe choices as long as you feel comfortable.
  • Set your foundation:  If you’re just starting a CrossFit program, make sure to sign up for the Foundations class.  This is imperative, as here you will learn the proper form and technique to use to safely perform the exercises. New CrossFitters are usually required to take this class, but if you’re still not comfortable to jump into a regular class after completing the program, speak to the trainers about one-on-one training to help you master your form.
  • Have fun: Some of the workouts are timed, meaning you want to complete the number of rounds prescribed as quickly as possible.  It can be easy to get into a competitive mode to try to beat your own personal record or your classmate’s time.  Instead, focus on enjoying the workout and ensuring you are properly completing each move, regardless of how long it takes.

Does the Lifestrength Bracelet Work?



Many years ago I had a crazy idea about wearing an elastic band to absorb the kinetic energy from the atmosphere. It was all just a joke at the time but the guys I worked with did it as well and we talked about how much more energy we had from wearing plain elastic bands.

Well today the past just came back

My wife and daughter bought me a Lifestrength wristband and this simple elastic band is supposed to help with lots of things. I doubt that it will work but if it does I will be very happy to be surprised.

What is a Lifestrength Bracelet ?

Lifestrength bracelet are made out of silicone and are infused with a bunch of stuff that is supposed to increase the amount of negative ions that your body absorbs and gets rid of the positive ions that are polluting your body.

  • Micro Particles – minerals are crushed into microscopic particles and then charged with infrared particles
  • Minerals and Crystals – 7 different types of crystals are made of of Ion Technology that is supposed to contribute anions around you
  • Mineral Infusion – Minerals that are infused into the band itself will increase the number of anions around you

So this is what the guys at Lifestrength say and is seems very strange as you read it but as you go through the site you see that lots of people are using these bracelets. I have to say that there are some stories that are very inspirational.  If you look around you will also see lots of athletes, both amateur and pro wearing these Lifestrength bracelets.

Basically all of this with the bracelets, all of the benefits of the Lifestrength Bracelet is due to anions.

Dr Oz, the TV doctor guy, also says that the power of negative Ions are very important for feeling better.

How will a Lifestrength Bracelet Make me Feel?

So what are the claims? What should the Lifestrength Bracelet do to help me? Well according to the company:

Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain

In the manual that came with my wristband is says that the benefits of anions is huge and even cites government studies saying that the anions help reduce anti-oxidizing, emotions, immune system, anti-aging, respiratory system, improve sleep, and mental alertness.

So today is my first day with the bracelet. so far I do feel calmer but of course it is Saturday and a tough week so I am relaxing a bit. What I would like to do is wear this Lifestrength Bracelet for the next few weeks and kind of forget about it and then look back and see what kind of effect it has had on me.

Have you bought one of these wristbands yet? If you have what has your experience been?
