DON'T STAY LONGER THAN 2 MONTHS WITH AN INEFFECTIVE WORKOUT: Innovate to Come Up with Something that Works

aliexpress.com
If you've been doing a workout for 2 months without good results, it's probably time to switch to a new workout program or supplement the one you're presently doing. I've seen some folks who've been doing a workout program for a year or two without visible results and yet keep at it.

It's either you need to change the program you're doing or add something to it. It may be lacking an element that would make it effective. For instance, if your crunch isn't making your abs look any better, you probably need to add some horizontal bar abs-tensioning rounds for a supplement. It's when you hang on a bar and raise your legs slowly to waist level and down, and so on.

I've seen folks jog for years to reduce their waistlines to no avail. If you do that for two months without results, you probably need to improvise. I once did 50 push-ups daily. Though it strengthened my arms and quickened my jabs, no muscle improvement was evident. Later, I learned I needed to do it in 4 sets. When I did, the results were amazing.

Even with the Look AHEAD study data, they found out that 2 months of Intensive Lifestyle Intervention or ILI which amounted to no satisfactory weight loss results may be a sign that the workout program either needs improvements or additions or total replacement with a better ILI.

Accordingly, the first two months are crucial. They can indicate whether a program is working or not, and whether it will work in the future if you keep doing it. If a program doesn't work for you in two months, it will probably not work for you at all even if you do it for a hundred years.
To avoid wasting time and energy on something that wouldn't work with physical fitness, apply the same Look AHEAD principle. Try a program seriously for 2 months. If it works, keep at it. If it doesn't, innovate or try a new one.

By the way, pull-ups on horizontal bars is a good way to achieve cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. Make your home-made horizontal bar and start pulling up. I have one in my garage and it wonderfully helps me keep fit.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
