John Kiefer video: Carb backloading, insulin hacking and more with Abel James show
Yet another cool podcast/video from the Abel James podcast The Fat Burning Man. It’s no secret that we eat Paleo’ish. The Latosa Concepts FMA Blog is not a nutrition blog but nutrition and training are part of the knowledge a person should know about when they become an instructor ( At least in my book! ). Ergo this post and the one that are related. Who knows maybe there will be a physical fitness and conditioning post soon. I am in the process of training my shoulder up so it may not be too long. Just don’t expect to see me yanking 150 kg around like I did before the accident.
Any Hoo! back to the subject. Carb Backloading is a way of limiting the carb intake to specific times of the day. We use clean (paleo’ish) carbs. Some people eat their proverbial cake. We are sticking with the gluten free stuff. There are a lot of good reasons to to this, but I’ll let the man himself tell you about in the video. John Kiefer is a cool mix of a chemistry nerd and trainer who knows what he’s talking about. The Carb Backloading program works well for many people. Enjoy the Video.
This post is going to be fast and easy. It’s the beginning of 2014 and we all need a kick in the butt. If the man, Nick Newell, in the video can do it, we all can do it. What ever it is. Be smart, but don’t make excuses when something can be done to reach your goals.
I’m really looking forward to great things happening in 2014. My shoulder/collar bone joint is getting better and I hope to be working in a month or two. I’m looking forward to a bunch of escrima training to catch up after such along break. Are you getting off your ass?
The Human Brain Documentary video. Latosa Concepts FMA Terminology.
Navy seal training and how they control fear, sexual activity in the brain, how a psychopaths brain works and more are looked at in this YouTube video about the human brain and how it works. It’s time to get just a tad nerdy once again. It’s always great to know what makes people function / act the way they do. Amino acids affect the hormonal response just as much as psychology affects our values. The evolutionary make up of our brain effects other thought patterns and more.The list of nerdy subjects is long, so I hope ya’ll enjoy the video.
Check out FMA talk Live for information and interviews about Escrima Kali, Arnis and more.
I was talking with the guys about this podcast, I thought others might like to check it out. You can click here to see the FMA Talk Live site and podcast. It’s always great to hear and read about how other instructors look at their systems and teachings. I have it on my phone via Itunes. It’s well worth the time.
It’s time we look at what happens inside the human head / heart and body because of mental perspective. Stress is one of the largest factors when looking at intestinal permeability (example from nutrition). We ancestral eaters like to talk about gluten and so on. But going ancestral is called a lifestyle change because it’s about everything. We try to incorporate mental ideas and perspectives into the Latosa Concepts Blog posts. The video below with Kelly McGonigal is yet another one of these posts. “it’s all how you look at it,”… How many people have heard those wise words. (when used in the correct situation !!! ). Watch /listen to the video and start to really think about how you act / react to stress and other things in your life.
Heck it could be a self-defense situation you have to learn to see in a slightly different way in order to best cope with it. Watching the people around me go through many situation that professionals have to live and cope with has helped to enforce the importance of this simple truth. Enjoy the TED video.
I hope ya’ll are doing well. As always It’s cool to look at the different cultures and their use of weapons ( and the culture that is built up around that aspect). In the Craftsman’s Corner, we have looked at the knife making from Sweden and other places, viking sword making and some others. Today we’ll look at the samurai sword, ( the video is Secrets of the Samurai Sword) some of what goes into it’s making and some of the culture that surrounds it.
We will most likely go to the Philippines or something from that region of the world with the next post in this category ( Craftsman’s Corner). I’ve had the chance to train with katanas and it went very well because of the knowledge from european sword fighting and escrima. Add some saber techniques into the mix with a feeling for the sword and you start to understand many reason for what people do with them.
I’ll be putting a “What have we been doing lately ” up soon.
Ya’ll enjoy and Stay Proactive in Life and Training
