    Your Neural GPS

    One of the easiest metaphors I use to increase understanding of how your brain and body work together to create elegant movement is to envision your body as a “Neural GPS.” To help build this metaphor, the GPS unit in your car or on your smartphone does several things: It tells you where you currently are and what’s around you. It tells you how to get to where you want to go efficiently and quickly. It tells you how fast you are moving and when you will reach your destination. How Does It Do This? When you turn your GPS on, the central processing unit (CPU) begins to look for…

    Magnesium, Proteine und Energie

    Wofür wird Magnesium benötigt und was bewirkt es im Körper? ALLES ‼️ Tatsächlich hat Magnesium aufgrund von nur ZWEI der Hunderten von Dingen, die es alles bewirkt, seine Hand im Spiel: Es wird benötigt, um Proteine herzustellen und alles, was im Körper existiert, ist entweder selbst ein Protein oder wird durch Proteine hergestellt.. Die Informationen, die zur Herstellung einzelner Proteine benötigt werden, sind in unserer DNA gespeichert. Die Herstellung von Proteinen aus den Informationen eines Gens wird als Genexpression bezeichnet. Es gibt eine Handvoll Enzyme, die an der Expression von Genen beteiligt sind, und sie alle benötigen Magnesium als Co-Faktor. Das macht Magnesium DIREKT für die Herstellung von Proteinen notwendig.…

    How Fast is Fast Enough

    New studies show that slow walking speed at age 45 is associated with accelerated biological aging, neurocognitive function and cognitive decline. However, it is not only the risk of degenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease that increases as a result of slow walking, but also the risk of cardiovascular disease in particular. Walking in any form, if carried out correctly and with the right intensity, has been shown to be particularly effective in preventing these diseases (regardless of BMI). The training recommendations for healthy adults include a) at least 5 aerobic training sessions of at least 30 minutes each with a moderate intensity (150 mins/W. spread over 3-4…

    5-Day Healthy Snacks at HomeChallenge

    Have you been feeling overwhelmed, worried and even a bit helpless those last days? Now that most of us have to stay at home and work from home, with the kids around all day, it’s very easy to let go of some good habits and indulge in more comforting foods than usual. One way this can easily happen is by frequent snacking in between meals, especially when those snacks are loaded with refined sugars, chocolate or unhealthy fats. I know how very tempting it can be to have a quick look in the fridge or pantry for just a tiny, tiny bite, but how about we make those bites the…

    RUNNING FROM THE BEAR

    When you’re running from a bear, you don’t have to run fastest. All you have to do is run a little bit faster than than the slowest person. In other words, when you’re improving your health, nutrition and fitness habits and choices, you never have to be “perfect”. You just have to be a little bit better, consistently. Most people start from 100% (i.e. perfect) and work backwards. So everything is always less than 100%. Most diets promising quick results are based on you moving from your current level to 100% immediately. That’s why they fail in 95% of cases. Now consider your worst case scenario.

    3 STRATEGIES TO HELP YOU STOP OVEREATING FOR GOOD

    Have you or a loved one ever said anything like this? “I can’t handle being hungry. If I go more than 3 hours without food, my inner Hulk comes out.
