Not Everyone Goes Home for Thanksgiving

November 27, 2014 – 1:13 pm
How many times had my family been separated during the war over such holidays as today's? I think of those times and I imagine the heartbreak of thousands of other families currently unable to embrace each other and spend these warm times around big tables of meals and mirth. From whatever catastrophic origins, I unknowingly developed the belief that I should live every day as if it were my last. This may sound desirable, but in action it amounts to a dread of impending separation from those you love. Today, I give thanks for the ability to sit down with little, loved ones, under the new belief that I am choosing, for another 45 years to watch them grow and thrive. A dear brother once told me that the days we spend with friends and family do not count against us on the end of our lives, so let us all spend as ...

How to Flex Your Hormones!

November 26, 2014 – 12:20 pm
Do you want to know how to "Flex Your Hormones"? Don't you tend to think of hunger as some kind of mechanical absence of food that causes discomfort? Well, surprisingly enough, it's actually a sensation in your brain! That gurgling in your stomach is actually your brain telling your stomach to prepare to use whatever food you eat, but so much more is going on! I'm going to teach you how to use this sensation to its optimal benefit in your fitness!!! And then I'm going to give you a FREE BOOK on more tips! When your stomach empties, a hormone called "ghrelin" is secreted. (And when your stomach is stretched by a big meal, that secretion stops.) Ghrelin travels to a part of your brain (called the hypothalamus) to increase your sensation of "hunger." It also increases gastric acid and gastro-intenstinal motility so your stomach is prepared for the food you're ...

After exhaustive research I came to ...

You’ll Never Find the Time, but You Can Make It!

November 20, 2014 – 4:09 pm
A great coach once told me, "Sonnon, you'll never find the time. But you can make it." We "lose time" not due to the over presence of responsibilities and tasks, but due to stress squandering moments through inefficient organization and ineffective procedure. There are many more perceptual slices of time "in there" if we prioritize the activities which hormonally destress us: sleep, water, food, exercise, and contact (friends/family). It seems that we won't find the time unless we sacrifice these, but, in reality, we will be able to make the time, if we include them as our highest priorities.

Are You Breaking the 3 Laws of Functional Fitness?

November 20, 2014 – 4:08 pm
At one point or another in our lives we ask the question, "What are we fit FOR?" Are we fit for our job, our recreation, our families: the "ness" of fit-ness? So, many of us have turned to the fitness world in hope of receiving aid. Hopes turn sour as we encounter a font of conflicting information, with different camps embattled by a schism of "us versus them" or in industry language: functional versus dysfunctional. Fighting over the phrase "functional fitness" happens because it contains redundant words: to be able to function means: you ARE fit for what you're doing. If you can't function, then by definition, you're un-fit. To prove this true when I must qualify a new class of instructors, I ask each to demonstrate "dysfunctional fitness" or "unfit functionality." No one ever has, nor ever will, because like jumbo-shrimp and a permanent guest-host, dysfunctional fitness and unfit functionality ...

You Also Adapt To The Movement You Don’t Do!

November 20, 2014 – 4:07 pm
Your body adapts to the movement you don't make. It efficiently grows shorter to help you do less of what you don't do. When you train to move through that movement your body has shortened, nerve endings in your tissue will send signals (pain, called nociception) reminding you that you haven't been moving that way. But your body has only changed shape, not potential. The ability to move through that range is always there. You can retrain the nervous system to move in ways you haven't. Unfortunately, we are told to stretch: to pull against shortened tissue to make them change shape. But you can't change tissue flexibility. In fact, because of our erroneous belief, this pulling acts as a resistance training exercise and makes the shortness stronger. We can use neurological tools to retrain a deactivated movement: 1. Exhale into the shortened movement to switch to the parasympathetic side of the nervous system and ...

Plantar Fasciitis Fix

November 20, 2014 – 4:06 pm
A "trainer" commented that the reason a person's plantar fasciitis had started in the other foot was due to a "viral spread across the myofascial web infecting the other leg." Dear Lord, it only took ten years before myofascial matrices became the new magical voodoo. The cause of plantar fasciitis beginning in the second leg is typically merely biomechanical, due to our compensatory reaction to pain. When weight bearing on one foot causes pain, you tend deliberately or subconsciously change your gait to reduce the pressure on the painful area. This often means putting more pressure on the other foot and stressing the fascia on that side, resulting in a bilateral case of plantar fasciitis. With a pain you shorten your stride when the foot is in the rear, causing the hip flexor to mute (stay short) and the glutes to deactivate since the leg doesn't extend far back, which leads to ...

Align All Elements to Your Success (”Tactical” Fitness)

November 20, 2014 – 4:05 pm
I was never a great fighter, but because I fixated on movement as exercise, I was able to give the illusion of speed, power and focus through smoothness (biomechanically efficiency), precision (the essential synergy of coordination), and stress inoculation (recovery through biofeedback), respectively. They are the "tricks" of mundane, repetitive practice. And because of that, I got to step on the mat with truly great fighters and occasionally even win. This is the true definition of "tactical" in TACFIT: to align all elements of training to achieve a strategic objective. Theres a very specific reason TACFIT has been named the "World's Smartest Workout!"
