Welcome everyone...ok, you asked for it. Once a year I post my
"health" blog. Most of our cross section of people think and assume
we can turn on our body and turn it off when ever we push that
remote button. Energy...push a button. Sleep...push a button. Bad!
My approach...the natural way. Power foods...for energy. Maca, Hemp protein, Fresh Ginger and ground dried turmeric, Chia, Fresh
leafy greens and Chlorella. Add Quinos/Karriwa, Kale, Gochu and
also Capsaicin; just to name a few. For fighting pain...cherries, blueberries, strawberries, celery seeds, curcumin, fish oil, qigong
and Arnicare for acute pain and Wintergreen oil for chronic pain.
Don't forget pineapple and cinnamon. My favorite natural food is
coconut oil and water. For healing...Sage, Chives, Basil, Cilantro,
Parsley and Herbal Tea recipes...mix in 1 teas of mint, rosemary,
oregano, cilantro, sage and basil in a cup of hot water for 5 min.
Next week...all about Probiotics, apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut and yogart. The truth...don't miss it.

Welcome of the words to define "blur" Webster uses
the term, "to lessen." That is what happens in our hurry up world. We try to play catch up in our every day lives. We race through our
training/workouts. This blur happens to most of us at some point.
We become discouraged and end up doing nothing. Take a deep
breath, slow down and get back to basics...our foundation, starting
point. The starting point always begins within each of us. When we
lose from within. This is critical to reach the top.

Ultimate Workout (2)

Welcome everyone...first a health tip. Candida, a parasite, from the
yeast family...loves sugar. Consider using probiotics. You owe it to
yourself to study this. Ok, let's get started. We have all heard about
the "hurry up" offense in football from high school, college and NFL. Well, this is about a hurry up workout. From one drill to the
next...hurry, don't walk, run. Drills are based on seconds/minutes and a count time. Remember, in these first two sessions, we are
intent on developing fast twitch muscle fiber. Don't run flat footed.
UP on the balls of your feet. Quickness, foot work, speed, plyo and
iso and not slow or plodding. Add jump rope. Reps
are fast. Write down the drills you need to do for each session. Two
hour workouts max, includes warm up and cool down. Recover
with a glass of chocolate milk...yes, it works. Gotta run.

Welcome everyone...this is a first in a series on the ultimate and
progressive personal workout/training regimen. In my vocabulary,
workout is is continual. My day begins with 5/10
minutes of meditation. I need quiet time/silence prior to my training
session. I visualize my entire session prior to starting. No headset,
no phone...just me. This also applies to my tutoring other athletes.
I start with a fast jog for 400m. Then light stretching for 15/20 min.
All my sessions require speed and explosion. Every sport/competition requires speed/explosion. I compete in seven sports...Track and Field, tennis, racquetball, softball, basketball,
pickleball and martial arts. Developing "fast twitch" muscle fiber
is critical. All of you know that in all sports, muscle fiber
development plays an important part in winning. For competitions,
fast twitch is #1. Marathons would be slow twitch...except when it's
"kick time." So, my fast twitch session contains a lot of Plyo. Each
drill is about seconds and minutes...NOT a numbers count. More
next week.
Have a meaningful life...JimmyO

Welcome to all of you...I have received many questions, requests and comments regarding motivation, "how to raise the bar," and "how to get better." Some of you have attended one or two of my motivational speeches. So, let's address that elusive intangible...motivation. Start at the beginning, who you are and what you are. Don't be a phony, don't fool yourself. Must have goals...daily, weekly, monthly, annually. Every night, while falling
asleep, I think about my training and sport I'm training for. I compete in seven different sports. Most everything in life is measured by time and distance. I change my routine often...from
eating time, workout time and training. This is key to my developing mental toughness. I always envision myself winning...
not if I can win. So, my training is about winning. Every workout
is my challenge. No phone, no radio. The one constant...aging. Father time is undefeated! The other constant...Self Image, who am
I and what am I all about. Next week, ultimate workout!
Have a meaningful life everyone...Jimmy O
