“There’s a million ways to skin a cat”
We hear this saying all the time and it’s 100% right.
The thing that I ask myself is how many of those million ways are the hard way? Will you have to sacrifice speed for time? What damage will occur along the way if I choose this way over that way?
I’m going to use climbing a rope as an example. Climbing a rope is hard and while there are many ways to get to the top they require upper body or lower body strength.
If I simply go hand over hand I can potential exhaust all of my upper body strength, in the process creating blisters on my hands.... but I got to the top and it was quick.
Now if I use a foot lock technique (often used by defence forces and cross fitters) I can use a lot less upper body strength, protecting my hands and all I need to do is use more lower body strength. I still get to the top of the rope but I have to sacrifice some speed for time, however I haven’t destroyed my hands.
If we relate this to nutrition you can see that if it is much the same. You try to go to quick you might get to your goal quickly but you have a higher chance of doing some damage along the way.
Note - as a Cat owner I don’t advocate the skinning of cats.
Thanks @traveljenn for sharing your adventures with Pigeon and the Summon feature in the #myPigeon app! .
Spring weather finally! Today we went to the park and of course we wore our @pigeonnetworks bands to get our steps in to meet our weekly goal! We were easily hitting 10,000 a week so we increased it to 12,000. .
When I sat down to do some work I was able to ‘summon’ Miss M with the in-app feature when it was time to leave. No more screaming her name through the park. .
This all new family fitness tracker will be available soon. Stay tuned. .
Un ejercicio de hombros súper efectivo!
Lo hago 12-15 repeticiones x4
Es súper importante el tiempo que te tomas en hacerlo, no lo hagas rápido, deja que duela un poquito
Si nunca has entrenado hombros empieza con poco peso
