It’s too short to live the soft, unfit, overweight unhealthy life of the average modern human. But there is another way.
You can chose to live as a modern Spartan . . .
I’m a big fan of butter.
In fact, I consider it a real health food.
Plus, it tastes great. It makes other food taste better. It’s easy to get kids to eat it.
I eat a lot of butter. My family eats a lot of butter.
BUT . . . even I would NOT try and eat 2 pounds of butter in one sitting!
The dude in this video does just that . . .
Every morning after I turn on my computer I check a handful of regular web sites. One of them is the Australian News channel Ninemsn.
A fairly stupid habit on my part I guess as News never really improves your day (or life). But I don’t read the paper so it’s just me trying to stay in semi-touch with current events.
Well . . . wasn’t I shocked to see the headline;
“Bodybuilder wins record for Popeye-like biceps“.
The article went on to report Egyptian bodybuilder, Moustafa Ismail, aged 24, has been dubbed the real life POPEYE for getting in the Guinness World Record for having the biggest arms in the world.
But this is an astounding and sad state of affairs for a number of reasons, as I’ll explain . . .
I’ve been emailed a couple of links to different motivational running videos. Thankyou all.
This is the best of the bunch so far . . . it’s hard to watch and not feel like getting out there and running!
Project Skyfall came from a simple idea I had.
Basically, it’s about motivating you to get into great shape.
We are picking a future date then aiming to train hard and diet strictly . . . right up until that date.
Why? Because it’s much easier to motivate yourself to stay on a diet and training regimen when you have a target to aim for. Any target will normally do as long as you care about it enough.
But in this case the target I came up with is the new James Bond movie, SKYFALL;
I like to use movie stars a lot when it comes to giving examples of being in shape.
For many reasons. For example movies are easy to find and watch. Then to re-watch for motivational hits. Also, the stars tend to be “average” guys (or gals) who have had to diet and train hard to achieve a certain LOOK for the movie character they are playing.
A lot of professional athletes have very inspiring physiques and talents but many of them are so genetically blessed or are such freaks of nature (in a good way) and train so much and so specifically, it’s harder to relate to them.
Which brings me to Daniel Craig . . .
Too much testosterone on this blog.
So it’s about time I paid tribute to some lean, fit and strong women.
And my first pick is Catherine Holland, also known as Cat. A 31 year old personal trainer and fitness model from California.
I know there is a never ending supply of attractive half naked female fitness models throughout the internet, and generally I’m not the biggest fan (shock, horror).
Seriously, some really go too far . . .
