No, we're not going to pull the Polar Bear on you.

DONT STOPPPPP!!!!!!!
Our students have done SO well this summer, we’ve had such great results with the beach bootcamp, Charles Craddock got 1st place in a VA beach jiu jitsu tournament, and we’ve seen people shredding weight in all of classes.
To keep the momentum going, we’ve boosted our Winter class schedule – click the link to check it out.
We’ve added more classes, and Sal is taking over the Friday classes.
But the biggest change is in the Martial Arts program is the new Jiu Jitsu program.
As we’ve mentioned on that post, the Jiu Jitsu curriculum now obeys the official USA Jiu Jitsu program. A couple of modifications are still in the works: we will expand the mat area to the upstairs weight room soon, and Jeremiah is going to teach only the Advanced class.
For now, Chris Stolzman is taking over the BJJ […]

Trick or Treat: Yea or Nay?

There are menacing spirits about tonight. Truly horrifying, ghastly ghouls in shiny, enticing packages. Resting ominously in bowls, baskets and bags, they await their jolly little prey. With the power of the Pied Piper, they will lead all manner of small witches, scarecrows, Spidermen, vampires, princesses, cowboys and gypsies toward ebullient, screeching glee, then sugar shock and moody mayhem this evening. Dastardly little devils, aren’t they…?

Chocolates, lollipops, Tootsie Rolls, M&Ms,
Pixy Stix, Bubble Gum, candy corn and Pez!
Jaw breakers, Milk Duds, Jolly Ranchers, caramels,
Star Burst, licorice, Kit Kat, and gummi bears!
Mounds, Nut Rolls, Laffy Taffy, Life Savers,
Reese’s, Skittles, Milky Way and Now or Laters!
What, finally, should a Primal parent do
In the midst of this Halloween hullabaloo?
Corny fun (we never said we were poets) and jokes aside, Halloween is one of those days when it’s tough being a parent battling societal pressure and cultural practice. You don’t want to ostracize your kids […]

HealthHabits is Under Construction

No posts for the next few days as I attempt to make the shift from healthhabits.wordpress.com to healthhabits.ca.
I transferred over the archives today (with some technical support from a friend) and there were a few errors and lost images/videos, etc…
Hopefully, I can choose a theme and load in new widgets by Monday
Wish me luck

Primal Blueprint Fitness Standards

(This is the fourth part of a four part series on fitness. Part 1: What Does it Mean to Be Fit?, Part 2: Could You Save Your Own Life?, Part 3: Modern Fitness Standards)
Yesterday, we explored the multitude of modern fitness standards spanning a variety of professions – soldier, cop, firefighter, Olympic athlete, pro athlete. We discussed the amorphous, free form standards held by pure fitness methodologies like CrossFit, as well as the simple but starkly delineated physical benchmarks a “real man” must satisfy as laid out by Earle Liederman. And though I didn’t even get into all the other fitness markers of the various athletic subcultures (ultrarunners, mountain bikers, soccer players, body builders, kayakers, backpackers, etc.), I’ve concluded that modern fitness is, by and large, incredibly splintered and heavily specialized. If you were to take a cross-section of examples of ideal athletes from every sport or activity imaginable, you’d […]

Your basal metabolic rate is the number of calories your body burns, not including calories burned from daily activity. I realize that calorie counting and knowing your BMR may seem like an "old school" approach to dropping body fat, but an understanding of these numbers will help if you are stuck. I want to discuss your BMR and why many people simply eat too many calories per day when trying to lose weight. We will also discuss the fact that people overestimate the effect that adding muscle has on increasing the BMR.

The total calories you burn in a day are a sum of your BMR plus any calories burned through activity. The biggest number in this equation is your basal metabolic rate…the amount of […]

I think it’s time for me to find another health club.
Yesterday, while chatting with the “towel lady”, I noticed that they were carrying a new protein shake…..by Kellogg’s…  the makers of Eggo waffles, Froot Loops and Pop Tarts.
and now they’re making protein shakes.
I asked to take a look at a bottle of the NEW!!! Special K Protein Shake.
Arrrggghhhhh!!!
Here’s what the label looked like:

Looks pretty good, right?
I mean, except for the sucralose, corn syrup solids, acesulfame potassium, nutritive and nonnutritive sweeteners.
On the plus side, it has 190 calories, some carbs to re-fuel after your workout and a relatively small dose of protein.
Just like chocolate milk.

In fact, the macronutrient profile looks almost identical to the carton of chocolate milk that I picked up at the 7-11 across the street from the gym.
Calories about the same, protein about the same, carbs about the same. The milk had a lower fat content as I […]

Special K Protein Shake v.s. Chocolate Milk

Organizations whose members are expected to engage in physical activity as an essential aspect of affiliation – the various branches of the military, law enforcement agencies, fitness methodologies like CrossFit – necessarily impose standardized fitness benchmarks, minimum requirements which every prospective member must satisfy. When a significant portion of your professional identity is predicated upon your ability to catch (or kill) bad guys (bad guys, mind you, whose primary objective is to avoid capture), you’ve got to be able to run, jump, support your own body weight, and adequately perform all the other physical activities that might come up in a day’s work. The various fitness standards are an attempt to ensure candidates are up to par in their respective areas.

They vary wildly, of course. Different jobs call for different levels of competency. Also, certain organizations, like the Army, are always looking for new recruits, so their standards aren’t quite […]
