COPYING SOMEONE ELSE'S WORKOUT!!       A major mistake made by a lot of gym-goers is following a workout program that has not been specifically designed for them. The problem with this type of program is that it has been designed for someone else and not specifically for you! Many of these workout plans have been designed for professional athletes who have been training for a number of years, who have a very specific goal.

If you have not read Part 1 , please do so now. Part 2 start right where 1 left off. So what do I suggest? Access & Consistency : While traveling, I found that the only way to ensure easy access and consistency wherever I went, was to bring it all with me. Unfortunately, with a 23KG checked bag limit, it is hard to bring your own dumbbells, treadmills, blenders, or personal trainers. You can, however, bring (1) a handful of easy to pack power bands for ...

Recent advances is neuroscience have revealed that our brains change in form in response to changes in behavior, environment, and neural processes. For decades, psychologists had viewed the brain as essentially fixed in its form after adulthood. While the brain could encode new learning and memories, it was widely thought that the functions of clusters of neurons were biologically predetermined and that no amount of activity could alter their designated function. It has only recently ...
