Weight Loss / What do you guys think on herbalife ????

Even though I eat an 85% paleo diet, I still don't get all the nutrition (optimal amounts all 60 essential micronutrients the body needs everyday). You can't get it from food alone. I know...I've taken micronutrient lab tests. So everyone who wants optimal health should be using nutritional supplements. Because oft position as fitness trainer to America's truck drivers, I get to use and test a lot of products. The best nutritional supplement system

20 Somethings / How often do you work out?

It depends on what your purpose is. For me it's about maximizing my performance in everyday life. I find that if I start my day with a little yoga, some Chi gong exercises and then some kind of total body workout, then I feel great and I am ready to go to work. So I do that each weekday. While I am at work after about 2 hours, I need to move so I will do A 2 minute chi gong exercise. At lunch time I like to re energize myself so I will do hey short Yoga session then eat. After work I like to finish the day with some cardio and feeling spent. Then to finish before bedtime to promote optimal sleep I will do a bedtime yoga series and some Chi Gong energy balancing work. I do this every weekday. Saturdays I train for longer endurance and sunday is recovery so that's just easy yoga. So there is a purpose to everything I do.

Health Conditions / Are you training your energy systems?

Greetings Skimblers,

I would like to share a litle of my personal story in hopes that it will help others. Recently, I have changed my focus from "working out" to "fitness" to "optimizing". In the past, as a competitive athlete, I trained primarily to improve my musclular and cardiovascular system. When my training volume increased in preparation for 2012 Ironman South Africa, rest, recovery and nutrition were added to the mix. I also discovered yoga, which added flexibility and the "mind-body" connection. After suffering some trauma and fatigue this year, I turned to Qi Gong which is the parent of Tai Chi and I started to learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Lately, I have also started seeing an accupuncturist. I have learned that just as there is a skeletal anatomy and a muscular anatomy, for example, there is also an "energy" anatomy which includes nvisible "points", "meridians" and "channels" and they are just a sreal as biceps, abs, and quads. This energy anatomy not only affects our major organs, and tissues from the cellular level, it also affects our emotions, how we feel, and even the external environmnet around us like our "auras" which in turn affect how we relate to other people and living things and how they relate to us. You know how someone has a "bad vibe"? Well, most of us never apply specific training principles to this energy anatomy. For the vast majority of us, we focus on cardio and strength training, and a good number of Skimblers also add yoga and stretching. But more important than any of these is the energy anatomy. Here's an example. On my first visit to the accupuncturist, he diagnosed that my spleen energy system was severely underperforming. As a result, I was not extracting the nutrition and Qi "energy" from the food, water and air I was consuming. This led to being malnourished even though I was eating what most consider to be a "clean", healthy diet. So for the past month I have focused on "energizing" my spleen system so that it can perform better. Today, the doctor said that my efforts were successful and that it is performing better, However, he then told me that I am not out of the woods yet. My liver energy system has and still is underperforming. That means I am not detoxifying like I should and toxins are building up in my body. This was a problem on my first visit, but the doctor told me there was no point in prescribing Chinese medicianl herbs so long as my spleen system wasn't working and I couldn't absorb the healing Qi of the medicine. So that is my focus, now. Anyway, all the energy systems 0 there are five, have an effect on everything. So if you have never trained these systems, I highly encourage you to investigate Qi Gong. I recommend the book Qi Gong Success and Qi Gong Healing Prescriptionsk, both by Ra Un Nefer Amen. I have created some basic Qi Gong exercises/workouts here on Skimble, too and have uploaded a video on youtube. In the future, I hope to see some more advanced Qi Gong workouts with full descriptions and visuals so that my Skimble family can optimize their health and fitness.

Stress & Relaxation / How to relax

If you are really serious, go see an accupuncturist that does pukes diagnosis. He or she will tell you which of your energy systems needs work. Once you find out, you can do the appropriate Qi Gong exercises that work directly in that system. From there you will balance out your energy and you will be morw relaxed and sleep better.
