The power of momentum

Let’s face it, a vast majority of us (including yours truly) aren’t productivity ninjas nor have the genius of the iconic entreprenuers the world admires and idolizes. We’re normal people with living ordinary lives with ordinary challenges that are hyperbolized for ‘effects.’ One of the most talked about (as in overused, overassessed and over-abused) challenge […]

Another shot at minimalist stretching and mobility

I reread this great piece by Strength Coach/Philosopher, Dan John, on minimalistic stretching and mobility. You know I dig ‘minimal stuff’ because I’m lazy and I know doing more doesn’t mean it’s better. He prescribes just two drills: the Windmill Stick and the Stoney Stretch. They’re both wonderful exercises for just about anything for your […]

Are you happy with your physique?

One question that drives droves of people to the gym each and every morning. It’s also something a trainer asked me this morning. At first, it kind of stunned me because nobody has ever asked me this question (not that I look like a Greek god or something). I instinctively responded, “I honestly don’t give […]

Yet another minimalistic training routine for the lazy professional

I’ve been doing some thinking. My evening training (with kettlebells) are mostly suck due to lack of energy. After much research and discussion with some of my peers (who’re experts in strength & conditioning) I’ve come to a conclusion — sleep more and definitely don’t skimp on eating well. The latter is much easier than […]

Focusing on agility

I don’t think I’ve ever been an agile/mobile/flexible athlete. My body’s been always so rigid and inflexible even when I was playing sports (soccer, football, and cricket) back in high school. And I guess, this runs in the family — my son’s just like me and I need to work with him to improve his […]

If it kills you… change your plans

I don’t know where I’d heard this, but it’s so darn true! And most of all it applies to people like who’re obsessive about achieving multiple things all at once. 2019 so far hasn’t been any different from the previous years. We’re at the tail end of April and I’ve already committed to 4 major […]

Please do everyone a favor

One of my biggest peeves is watching idiots train at the gym. I’m not talking about the ones who’re struggling with weights or are weak or are just learning (under supervision). I’m specifically impressed at these overconfident and flashy folks who would hoist a kettlebell all the way to their necks or squat with a […]
