5 Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle

Hey, quick reminder my “Knockout Nutrition Plan” is available in my online store.

Do you remember those New Year’s Resolutions you made earlier this year?

Hopefully you are still on track. It is understandable if you slip up with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and now Valentine’s Day.  Those New Year’s resolutions seem to decrease in priority.

Unhealthy meals and candy might be winning out over the healthy foods you committed to earlier this year.

But, don’t give up!

I have put together 5 Healthy tips  to keep you motivated and headed towards your goals.  Enjoy!

  1.  Drink plenty of water!
    • Water will not only keep you hydrated, which is good for the body in general. It makes you feel full throughout the day.
  2. Get 6-8 hours of sleep.
    •  Sleep keeps your mind and body working as efficiently as possible. It helps with metabolism and helps heal your body.
  3.   Prep your meals and eat small meals throughout the day.
    • Eating (lots of) small meals boosts your metabolism and leaves you feeling satisfied rather than stuffed.
  4. Get 30 minutes of exercise per day.
    • Even 30 minutes of physical activity per day will help with weight-loss and boost your energy levels.
  5. Try smoothies for a snack or pre-workout boost!
    – This is for that quick energy boost before a workout.

If you need some help getting going, don’t forget Nutrition packages are available at my Online Store.

LIVE FOR IT.

What are you willing to die for and then LIVE for it? Every morning you wake up, what is it that you are passionate about, hungry about, dream about? So many people unfortunately go through life as “dead” men on the inside instead of stirring the flames of fire that will set them ablaze to make a difference in the world. I dare you today to LIVE passionately. Here are some inspiring quotes on Passion from Youth Pastor Jeanne Mayo. Be Blessed! Be Revealed!

PASSION

In Vince Lombardi’s last speech before he died, he said these words to a group of corporate leaders: “I’m going to share with you the key to success in any area of your life. The secret, in a word, is…HEARTPOWER. Capture the heart of people you are trying to lead, connect their hearts to your goals, and NOTHING will be IMPOSSIBLE for you.

People do not…

Technique of the Month Muay Thai Jab

It is with great pleasure to present you with the first technique breakdown in our “Technique of the Month” series.

I will share as much of my martial arts knowledge as I can without straying off topic, as I can go on and on for days about this subject.

This will give some insight into the technical aspect of martial arts to the uninformed, beginner or advanced martial artist.
I am sure that the advanced martial artist will appreciate the technical breakdown of the techniques.

So, let’s begin, shall we.

The first technique we will cover will be the Muay Thai Jab.

There are several types of jabs in boxing, Muay Thai and other forms of martial arts.

For example, in boxing, these can include the “basic jab”, the “step jab”, the “power jab”, the “counter jab” the “up jab” along with several others. These jabs can be used for offense and defense.

In Muay Thai, we focus on a long range jab. This is the technique we will cover today.

Now, the Muay Thai jab, in itself, is a very simple, but effective weapon. The motion itself is literally straightforward. Take a look at the video clip of me demonstrating the jab.

The fist travels in a linear fashion from my temple to a fully extended position and return It to the start position. There are some other subtleties, but that is it really.

The difference between the basic jab and the Muay Thai jab is the slight extension at the shoulder. This extension allows the jab to travel farther than the normal length of my arm.

The Muay Thai jab can be quite deceptive and I often catch people off guard in sparring and it has helped in some of my fights.

In a Pro boxing match, you will often hear the commentator mention that the boxer with the better jab will end up winning the fight. And it is usually true. But, let’s get back on topic

Another reason this jab is utilized by Muay Thai practitioners is that keeps heavy punchers at bay, so to speak.

Let’s say I am fighting a person that throws big punches in “bunches”. I can utilize one or two quick jabs to create distance or snap their head back and throw off their rhythm.

The Muay Thai jab also allows you to keep enough distance between you and your opponent to throw those heavy kicks that are so effective in Muay Thai.

In Muay Thai fights, big kicks mean big points on the scorecards. Plus, no one likes getting kicked. Lol.

That is all I have for now on the Muay Thai Jab. If you are interested in learning more about my programs, please check out my Website.
