Pyramid 2

Hello and welcome everyone...we will start with status quo. I do not believe in status quo. No one stays the stays the
same. We either go up or down, faster or slower, get better or worse. This is part two in a three part series. This week I added deep breathing, Pilates, water aerobics and Epsom salt with Lavender. I soak my feet warm water and the salts for 20 minutes
after each workout. Most nerve endings are in our feet. There is more to a workout than counting to 10 or 20. Mistakes that are made in training...1) not stretching. 2) not properly warming up.
3) poor hydration. 4) only doing a single exercise. 5) too much too fast. Have a great and healthy 2015.

Have a meaningful life everyone...Jimmy O

Hello and welcome everyone...this is the first of a three part series
re my drills and training schedule. A quote from Napoleon Hill..."every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it
the seed of an equal or greater benefit." From Moslow's pyramid of
Human Needs, the food pyramid and the Pyramid of Performance...
Focus, Emotion and Results, you will eliminate the clutter, confusion and mind jumping and mental traps. Eliminate the "what
if" syndrome. My training prep as I begin a new year...meditate for
seven/ten minutes. 2) yoga and stretching for 45 minutes. I compete
in eight sports with emphasis on track and field. My prep is the same six days a week. The seventh day, I walk three/five miles. My
training drills (initially), are comprised of plyometrics, flat 30m
sprints, sprinting up steps/hills. Developing fast twitch muscle fiber
and endurance. I perform these drills 3 days a week for the first
month of training and three days a week I'm in the weight room
toning the leg and arm muscles...ab drills and three different push up drills. More stretching and core drills. Everything is written out
before guessing. Each week schedule changes for muscle
confusion. Workout is for two hours with 30 min. cool down.Have
a safe and joyous Holiday season.

# 10

Hello and welcome I prepare for each year's training will be spelled out in the following text. Hope this will help you as much as 100's of others. My weekly schedule is written
out with the words "climb Mt. Everest." I have been doing that for over 50 years. "We can age, but we don't have to get old. We live as though we will never die. We die as though we have never lived.
We rush to grow up and then long to be kids again." The # one
mistake men and women make...No Mental Training. Pre training
and pre game mistakes. 1) strict expectations. 2) lack of self confidence. 3) getting distractions, putting an act, show off. 4) park
your troubles, separate your life from the sport/competing. 5) over
thinking. Don't cram before competing. 6) worry/fear. 7) poor planning. 8) psyching yourself out before competing. 9) worry about what others think. 10) allowing fear of failing to be the motivating factor. Finally...facing the truth. Profile/define yourself.
Energy/action plan. Energy, productivity, performance. Next week,
prep conclusion and workout schedule.
Have a meaningful life everyone...Jimmy O

The Unknown

Hello and welcome everyone...2014 is closing fast and it's time to
design our fitness/training program for 2015. I will outline mine next week. Bits and read and movie,  Stephen Hawking. Best relaxation...Reflexology. Health warning...STRESS.
Stress related issues...common cold, inflammation, weight gain, slower healing, sleep dysfunction, heart disease, ulcers, back, neck
and shoulder pain. Loss of energy. Physical activity actually
recognizes the brain, teaching it stress resistance. Adaptation to
circumstances is a great strength. How we adapt to change is key
to being as much as we can be. Knowing your inner self and the
mental side is critical for attaining our goals. Fear of the unknown
prevents us find the real person...who am I and what am I all about.

Have a meaningful life everyone...Jimmy O
