"Adaptation is obvious in muscle and bone, but the truly spectacular changes take place in the nervous system. We now know the process in great detail. Far from being a static system, the nervous system is constantly remodeling itself in response to experience. The fancy name for this process is “use-dependent plasticity.” When we repeatedly fire a neural circuit, that circuit becomes faster and more sensitive. Cells that fire together begin to literally wire together. The challen...Read Full Post »

I have to tell you, I was a little curious as to how, and if, I would be able to put forth the effort needed to finish this ride without eating the proverbial "carbo load" that most, if not all, endurance athletes say must be done.
The ride, 3 Mountain Madness, is a tough ride consisting of about 8000 ft of clmbing in 75 miles...good stuff! Where I live in NC, there are few hills, so to train for something like...Read Full Post »

After my last trip to Ireland, I posted about some of my thoughts as I will this time.
As always, I am amazed at the freshnes of the food there. Meat doesn't smell like anything, seafood smells the way it should. Bananas, apples, tomatoes, root vegetables and other food has this "Pazang!" to it that you just don't get here...unless you grow it yourself!!Read Full Post »

So, what kind of task do you need to perform? Does it involve the ability to move? Well probably. Have you ever considered that sometimes, when your body is all jacked up from an ailment or pain of some kind, all we need to do is go back to basics?
Basics in this case means moving as we did when we LEARNED to move. Crawling, walking, or in this video, the head lift...

These are a few things Paul Chek has to say about nutrition and health. I tend to agree. In all my years of teaching about nutrition to my clients and the public, these ideas hold true for lifelong health.

Today, my wife had a stem cell transplant...which didn't work. She went through hell and still had more to go through in the Fall of last year.
She inspires me constantly to better myself. I can only hope that just a little of what she does for me, I have passed on to you all.
I love you, my lovely lady.

Where else in your daily life do you hear the word "fit?" Besides the use of the word in fitness, where?
I was driving down the road, and happen to see an obese woman chase after a 3 year old who was running away from her on a playground. She couldn't catch up. What I thought was how dangerous this was.
