Incidental Training could save Your Life!

Incidental Training: Everything Can Be Training

By  on March 11, 2019

I saw an interesting documentary on the BBC a while ago called ‘The Truth About Slim People’, that followed the lives of slim people to see what they did differently from their larger counterparts. These people didn’t eat particularly carefully, or stick to any exercise regime, and yet they never seemed to gain weight.

Meanwhile, some people who count every calorie still don’t seem able to shed the pounds.

While I discussed some possible reasons for this in a previous video, the idea that this program honed in on was that the slim people were simply more active throughout the day. They would walk more, they would bob their leg, and they would take the stairs instead of the elevator.

This concurs with an interesting theory that our body will automatically seek a state of homeostasis and therefore prevent us from losing weight. Ever noticed how your weight doesn’t fluctuate on a week-to-week basis much? That’s probably because your body ramps up and down activity in order to adapt to the amount of calories you consumed that day.

Eat a little more, and you might find that you think harder (that’s right: thinking burns calories), you move a little faster (perhaps there is a spring in your step as you bound up the stairs), you shiver more, and your metabolism ramps up.

Conversely though, on days where you didn’t quite get as much to eat, you might find yourself crashing out early on the couch, lowering your resting metabolic rate (study), and tossing and turning less when you sleep. Your body has reached a state of healthy homeostasis and it requires a pretty big jolt to break this comfortable equilibrium.

Use a fitness tracker and you might be forgiven for thinking that the workout you just did helped you to burn a ton of calories. 180 in an hour is roughly an average for weightlifting for instance. The problem is that we often forget to deduct the calories we would have burned that same hour by just doing nothing. That’s probably around 50. Meanwhile that really you only burned an additional 130 calories – less impressive. That’s like a four finger KitKat.

The point of all this is that when it comes to health and particularly weight loss, the amount of movement you do throughout the day is probably more important than the amount of effort you put in down the gym for an hour.

More Reasons to Move Regularly

And this makes sense too when you consider our evolutionary background. In the wild, we would not have spent 95% of our time inactive, and then attempted to blow all of our energy in a single hour of intense weight lifting! Is it any wonder that this often leads to injury?

Sitting all day is actually immensely destructive for our health and has been linked with all kinds of health problems. According to widely reported research conducted a couple years back, sitting increases your chances of suffering from a wide range of diseases. In the study, Brazilian researchers looked at data from 54 countries and found that across the board, sitting for more than three hours was linked to 3.8% of deaths from all causes. The conclusion? That restricting sitting to less than three hours a day could increase your lifespan by an average of 0.2 years!

Another piece of research looked at information from across 47 previous studies and found that sitting raised the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and ‘early death’ (cardiovascular disease and cancer will do that…). What’s more, this held true even for those that exercise regularly. In other words, you can’t ‘undo’ a lifetime of sitting by hitting the gym a few times a week. Physical activity helps but only to a small degree (those that are physically active are 30% less likely to die but they don’t get let off the hook!).

Another study conducted by a team from the University of Queensland in Australia had even more morbid findings. They found that on average, each hour of sitting in front of the television would reduce the life expectancy of adults by 22 minutes!

In another study, a team at the University of Queensland in Australia analyzed data on the television- viewing habits of 8,800 Australians. They calculated that each hour of television correlated with 22 minutes off the average life expectancy of an adult older than 25.

Remember that correlation does not mean causality! And I certainly wouldn’t put too much stock in these findings… but still, it’s definitely an interesting point to consider.

There are more reasons to move regularly too. Doing so, for instance, can help to combat anxiety (study), boost executive function (study), and reduce blood pressure and other markers of poor health.

The Solution: Incidental Exercise

So what is the solution?

One answer is ‘incidental exercise’. This refers to the exercise that you do throughout the day and typically encompasses things like ‘taking the stairs instead of the elevator’ or carrying shopping to your car.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, then take a look at your daily routine and ask yourself how much activity is involved. If you drive to work, sit at a desk, then come home and sit on the sofa… then you have room for improvement!

Incidental exercise is really about making healthy choices throughout the day: doing things like getting off the bus a stop early.

You are simply making the conscious decision to move more, thereby overriding your body’s attempt to maintain homeostasis. If you set yourself reminders to move or use tricks like standing desks, then you can reduce the amount of time you spend sat down.

Take a look at your routine and find places where you could easily insert a little more activity without making yourself overly tired or sweaty.

You can even set yourself easy little goals – such as doing ten press-ups every hour, on the hour. You’ll be surprised at how much lighter, more energetic, and less stressed you feel.

The Next Level: Incidental Training

But we can take this a step further with what I like to call ‘incidental training’. I assumed this was already a thing, but looking around I couldn’t find any reference to it.

The idea behind incidental training is simple: you’re going to integrate actual training into your routine – so that you aren’t just doing a single workout a day, but are also distributing shorter ‘micro workouts’ throughout your day.

Examples might include performing single legged calf raises off a curb while waiting for a bus, or performing an isometric curl against some railings. I use calf raises while bouncing my baby to sleep, and I play a game with here where I hold her in the air and perform sit-ups. You might keep a grip trainer by your kettle and use that whenever you’re waiting for the water to boil. Or you might perform some stretches in the shower. You can curl shopping bags and suitcases, or you can do a pistol squat down to the ground the next time you need to pick something up that you’ve dropped.

Another old trick is to leave a piece of equipment somewhere and then use that every time you go past. A lot of people do this with a pull-up bar – performing chin ups or pull ups every time they walk through their doorframe.

Or how about doing a very short 5 minute run around the block before lunch?

Does this work? What about overtraining you ask?

The answers to both these points depend on the type of training and what your goals are.

Studies show that micro workouts involving cardio are sufficient for increasing cardio fitness to some degree and that they actually help to improve adherence. Beyond a basic level of fitness though, you’re likely looking at HIIT sessions, which are still very intense and will leave you sweaty and panting for a good while.

It is possible to encourage growth in your muscles in a short space of time by using intensity techniques like drop sets to flush them with metabolites and cause muscle damage. Target a single muscle group, do a couple of drop sets, and in 10-15 minutes you can get a decent burn going that will equate to growth the next day. But doing this repeatedly throughout the day will take time, leave you sweaty, and potentially prevent recovery.

Lifting a very heavy weight on the other hand for just a couple of repetitions is even more likely to be effective in increasing your mind-muscle connection, your correct movement patterns, etc. Again though, there is some risk of burning out your CNS here, and of introducing injury. And it’s hardly convenient!

So we need to be strategic.

High rep and high weight work can be useful throughout the day as a way to ‘top up’ your training, to make up for shorter or missed workouts, or to feed the muscles with enhanced blood flow, to encourage recovery and growth. You can trigger significant changes in a short space of time, as long as you have been training long enough to know what triggers your body to change.

This is one way I’ve been coping with the lower energy levels and reduced free time that comes from being a parent.

Likewise, by using lighter weights and body weight, you might be able to benefit from what is known as ‘greasing the groove’ – as described by Pavel Tsatsouline. This means that you’re repeating a movement over and over again, so as to improve your ability to perform that movement correctly. This applies in golf where overtime your swing becomes more and more perfect.

But seeing as ‘strength is a skill’, you can see the precise same benefit by performing very light deadlifts if you keep a barbell in your garden. Pull-ups are also a great example, as are things like attempting handstands or planche. Keep some parallettes by your TV and have a go every now and then throughout the evening. You’ll be reinforcing neural connections through a process called myelination, thereby improving the efficiency of the movement, and thereby the strength.

Practising pistol squats

Better yet: why not try using overcoming isometrics to increase neural drive (static contractions where you push or pull against something without moving), or the concentric-only exercises I talked about in my work capacity video. In short: removing the eccentric portion of the movement that often incurs the most muscle damage and inflammation means that training is less likely to impede your subsequent workouts.

That’s why the aforementioned example of squeezing a grip trainer while the kettle boils is perfect.

Look for ways to insert incidental training into your routine to complement your current program, and you could see significant strength, size, and endurance gains.

Training Other Things

The other thing to remember is that weightlifting is not the only kind of training. I talked about a training program for the mind the other day, and discussed ideas such as performing mental arithmetic to boost working memory. You can easily do this while doing other mundane tasks.

Or how about engaging in a little ‘mindful ironing’ – meaning you focus 100% on the ironing to turn it into a form of meditation!

Flexibility is something that can be practiced anywhere, any time. Again, stretching in the shower is ideal, as is stretching before bed to improve sleep.

Or what about throwing a few punches next time you’re watching TV?

Why walk somewhere when you can jog? Or jog backwards and develop your legs and coordination in a whole new way? Who cares what people think.

Why stand when you can stand on one leg and improve your balance?

Why write when you can write left-handed?

Why go through the gate when you can jump over it?

EVERYTHING can be training.

Closing Thoughts

Whether your aim is to get the blood pumping and improve your health with a little more light activity throughout the day, to squeeze training in around an intensely busy schedule, or to improve a specific skill; incidental training is an excellent option. For me, this was the only way to add flexibility training into a hugely packed regime! Let me know in the comments down below how you turn everyday activities into convenient workouts.

Zig Ziglar ~ What It’s Like at the Top ~

At the Top

At the Top

Hi Folks,

Recently recalled what had heard about Zig Ziglar describing what it’s like to be at the top.

I remember his powerful words as he spoke his “Words of Wisdom”.

His words still echo in my mind.

Ziglar had a way with words, as he painted a very vivid picture of what life can be like when you focus on success from the inside out.

As the story goes, Zig Ziglar was visiting his wife’s sister who had MS.  he likes to fix problems, but this was a problem that simply could not be fixed, and he struggled with that.

On this particular visit, Ziglar was really feeling down and out.  Then, in a moment of inspiration, one that Ziglar described as one of his most creative moments, he wrote what it’s like to be at the top.

And, he wrote his words on the back of a motel bill, which was the only paper he had available at the time.

You are at the Top When …

Here is how Zig Ziglar described what it’s like at the top …

You are at the top when:

You clearly understand that failure is an event, not a person; that yesterday ended last night, and today is a brand-new day.

You have made friends with your past, are focused on the present and areoptimistic about your future.

You know that success doesn’t make you, and failure doesn’t break you.

You are filled with faith, hope and love; and live without anger, greed, guilt, envy or thoughts of revenge.

You are mature enough to delay gratification and shift your focus from your rights to your responsibilities.

You know that failure to stand for what is morally right is the prelude to being the victim of what is criminally wrong.

You are secure in who you are, so you are at peace with God and in fellowship with man.

You have made friends of your adversaries, and have gained the love and respect of those who know you best.

You understand that others can give you pleasure, but genuine happiness comes when you do things for others.

You are pleasant to the grouch, courteous to the rude and generous to the needy.

You love the unlovable, and give hope to the helpless, friendship to the friendless and encouragement to the discouraged.

You can look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion and up with gratitude.

You know that “he who would be the greatest among you must become the servant of all.”

You recognize, confess, develop and use your God-given physical, mental and spiritual abilities to the glory of God and for the benefit of mankind.

You stand in front of the Creator of the universe, and He says to you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

By painting a picture of what life is like when you are at the top, Zig Ziglar also painted a picture of what life is like when you are at the bottom.

Here’s to Living your BEST Boundryless LIfe !!

Living better through Releasing Stress

Stop Worrying

Stop Worrying

Hi Folks,

Recently chatted with some college buddies about our busy days, family, and the topic
got around to how we relieve stress to be more productive, and just Live better.

Hope this helps you and please leave your ways of releasing stress so we may all learn.

The #1 Way to Chill Out and Relax? Exercise.
If you are feeling particularly stressed, at the very least you should get out and walk it off. Take a walk around the block and get your heart rate elevated. Do some sprints or pushups. Get active.

For maximum stress reduction, exercise frequently. It’s not just about doing something good for yourself and your body. One large study demonstrated that people who regularly exercise have lower levels of anxiety, depression and neuroticism[1]. In general, people who move about regularly feel better about the world and themselves. Even doing just 5 minutes of exercise at various times throughout the day has been shown to release stress AND improve energy too – a Win-Win situation folks.

Write Stuff Down

A Journal is your friend

A Journal is your friend


Make a list to keep track of what you need to do. We can only handle so much information at once. Sometimes, the burden of everything that needs to be done is just too much. What’s the default reaction? For some people it is to shut down.

Consider keeping everything you need to do organized with a list or, if you have something bothering you, write it down. There’re some great applications to help this too.

One study in the Journal of Psychology took a look at the experience of college students and their ability to cope with and manage stress through list making. The study determined that students who made lists perceived that they had more control over their time. The result? They were less stressed[2].

It’s all about showing yourself that you are in control. Make a list, and you will feel better if you’re stressed out.

Eat the Right Foods

Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating


It’s hard to prove that specific foods lead to increased stress. What’s easy to prove is that while you are already stressed, you tend to eat more food. Eating more could cause even more stress problems, especially if you have a specific nutrition goal.

Consider a recent study that tied eating behavior to stress levels. When stressed, 73% of the people in the study ate more food than they would have in an unstressed state, regardless of gender[3].

Don’t Be Afraid To Treat Yourself

Give Yourself a treat ~ a wonderful Life

Give Yourself a treat ~ a wonderful Life


This one is tied into food as well. An article published in Psychology & Behavior determined that stress and resultant overeating associated with stress is tied directly to the body’s reward system.

Here is how it works—you are stressed out so you eat, something your body sees as a reward, and your stress starts to go away[4]. Use this as a way to eat healthier.

refreshing Yogurt & Fruit Salad

refreshing Yogurt & Fruit Salad

For example, make a refreshing fruit salad, add some fresh yogurt to it. Take 5.. take a 5 minute break, while deep breathing, visualize yourself successfully completing a task…then…Reward yourself with that yogurt-fruit salad.

Don’t be afraid to reward yourself. It doesn’t have to be about food either. You can reward yourself with anything, you just want to be sure to let your body and mind understand that, as you complete a particularly stressful day or task, that you are going to provide a reward.

Enjoy Life !

Enjoy Life !

For the Woman in your Life

Enjoy the Moment - Together !

Enjoy the Moment – Together !

Hi folks,

Having recently noticed have a lot of posts, but none for the Lady in our lives.

Here’s some insight into us Guys, done with Love,  in the hopes to better understand us oftentimes complex, men of few words, type of guys.

Women – This is for you !

Men Say ‘I Love You’ With Actions

Some men prefer to show their feelings through actions rather than words. Your guy may say “I love you” by fixing things around the house, tidying up the yard, or even taking out the trash — anything that makes your world a better place.

Men Really Do Take Commitment Seriously

Men have a reputation for being afraid to commit. But the evidence suggests men take marriage seriously. They may take longer to commit because they want to make sure they are on-board for good. In a survey of currently married men, 90% say they would marry the same woman again.

He Really Is Listening

When you’re listening to someone talk, you probably chime in with a “yes” or “I see” every now and then. It’s your way of saying, “I’m listening.” But some guys don’t do this. Just because a man isn’t saying anything doesn’t mean he’s not listening. He may prefer to listen quietly and think about what you’re saying.

Shared Activities Form Bonds

Men strengthen their relationships with their partners through doing things together, more than by sharing thoughts or feelings. For many men, activities like sports and sex make them feel closer to their partner. So, find an activity you enjoy doing together. For example, creative French or Italian cooking, hiking, mini-vacation for some quiet or active time together, etc. The best part, Be Creative in choosing what you’ll enjoy doing together makes it all the more fun !

Enjoy sharing activities together

Enjoy sharing activities together

Men Need Time for Themselves

While shared activities are important, men also need time for themselves. Whether your guy enjoys golf, gardening, or working out at the gym, encourage him to pursue his hobbies, while you make time for your own. When both partners have space to nurture their individuality, they have more to give to each other.

Men Learn From Their Fathers

If you want to know how a man will act in a relationship, get to know his dad. How they are with each other and how the father relates to the mother can predict how a man will relate to his wife. As the saying goes … Like father – Like son ~

Men Let Go Faster Than Women

Women tend to remember negative experiences longer and may have lingering feelings of stress, anxiety, or sadness. In contrast, men are less likely to dwell on unpleasant events and tend to move on more quickly. So while you may still want to talk about last night’s argument, your guy may have already forgotten about it. This is where being understanding and seeing each other’s point of view can help.

Men Don’t Pick Up on Subtle Cues

Men are more likely to miss subtle signals like tone of voice or facial expressions. And they are especially likely to miss sadness on a woman’s face. If you want to make sure your guy gets the message, be direct.

Men Respond to Appreciation

Showing appreciation for your guy can make a big difference in the way he acts. Take parenting: Studies show that fathers are more involved in care-giving when their wives value their involvement and see them as competent.

Most Men Think About Sex … A Lot

OK, so maybe this one is no secret. Most men under age 60 think about sex at least once a day, compared with only a quarter of women. And that’s not all. Men fantasize about sex nearly twice as often as women do, and their fantasies are much more varied. Here is where having a romantic weekend at a B & B can help. Create your fantasy love spot, then enjoy it together !

Men Find Sex Significant

It’s a myth that most men think sex is just sex. For many, sex is a very important act between two committed people. And just like most women, men find sexual intimacy to be most satisfying within a committed relationship. One reason is that long-term partners know how to please one another better than strangers do. Enjoy a quiet time together, romantic evening, make a date, then lavish each other while finding ways to please each other.

He Likes It When You Initiate Sex

Most guys feel as though they’re the ones who always initiate sex. But they also like to be pursued and wish their partner would take the lead more often. Don’t be shy about letting your guy know you’re in the mood. Initiating sex some of the time may lead to a higher level of satisfaction for both of you. Here’s the woman’s opportunity to enjoy being romantically creative.

Guys Aren’t Always Up for Sex

Men, much to many women’s surprise, aren’t always in the mood for sex. Just like women, men are often stressed by the demands of work, family, and paying the bills. And stress is a big libido crusher. When a guy says, “not tonight,” it doesn’t mean he’s lost interest in you. He just means he doesn’t want to have sex right then. This is a BIG one. And, when this occurs, just enjoy snuggling, watching a movie together, some hot chocolate. Enjoy each other in ways outside of sex, is a good foundation, to building a long loving relationship, based not just on sex, but on mutual understanding, as well as building loving memories together too.

Be creative  in expressing your love each day ~

Be creative in expressing your love each day ~

Men Like Pleasing Their Partner

Your pleasure is important to your man. But he won’t know what you want unless you tell him. Too many women feel uncomfortable talking about what they like and don’t like. If you can tell him clearly in a way that doesn’t bruise his ego, he’ll listen. Because he knows he’ll feel good if you feel good. Encourage giving a massage, while telling where to massage more, gentler, slower, you get the idea.

Guys Get Performance Anxiety

Most men get performance anxiety on occasion, especially as they age. Your guy may worry about his body, technique, and stamina. If you can help him learn to relax and stay focused on the pleasures of the moment, sex will become less stressful. This can actually help both ways. As you both let go of feeling have to have sex, and more on loving touches, enjoying the moment without expectations, can go a long way to building a more relaxed loving atmosphere for you both.

Men. like Women, need to feel loved

If a man doesn’t feel loved and appreciated in his relationship, he may turn to burying himself in work. Another may develop a fixation on sports or video games. To avoid this, take time DAILY to express love and appreciation for each other. Even through little ways, can make a Huge positive difference !

He’s Vested in You

Most men realize there’s a lot to lose if a long-term relationship goes sour — not just each other’s company, but the entire life you’ve built together. If you’re willing to work to strengthen your marriage, chances are your man will be, too. Each day, do something that builds on the love of your marriage. For example, do something unexpected for each other. Be creative – It’s more fun !!

Hope to hear from men and women readers on your thoughts and feedback too.

Here’s to enjoying a Boundryless Loving Marriage together !!

2014 Success Tips – Part 2

How Bad to You Want your Dream ? !

How Bad do You Want your Dream ? !

Hey there Folks,

Here is the second part of Success tips for attaining your 2014 goals.

Remember, you don’t have to jump in and try doing all these tips in one day.

You could start by adding one tip a day, or even a week. Then before you know it….

You’ll have built up a Momentum of Success that helps carry you toward your goals.

Well, without further ado, here’s some more tips for ya …..

Keeping a journal is like the phrase “Preparation Meets Opportunity”, with a journal, ; one for your planning, scheduling, and working ideas. The other for your big ideas, thoughts, and Personal goals.

Things become more REAL when you take the time to write them down.

You’re taking the time to Think it, Write it, AND Read it.  3 important steps of ANY plan. Get in the habit of writing everything down.

Have a To-Do List? Write it down!

Have a Goal? Write it down!

Have a Dream? Write it down!

 

Measure stuff.

If it’s important enough for you to be spending your time on, then it needs to be measured. SO….. Get in the habit of measuring your actions and results, you’ll develop a playbook for what works and what doesn’t.

Do it in 90 … of course you know I mean your work … Right !

Schedule tasks into blocks of time. Respect the time you sit in front of the computer.

It’s amazing how quickly time can zip by if you’re not disciplined in this respect. There are thousands of distractions online (Facebook, YouTube, Email, etc).

Keep a stopwatch nearby. Focus on a 90 minute blocks of work. Once your 90 minutes are up, take an “active” break (exercise to get your blood pumping).

Not only will you get a lot more done, but you will find your work much more fulfilling and rewarding.

 

Equally Important … Take active breaks.

In between those 90 minutes of Doing It time …. take “active” breaks in between your 90 minute blocks of work.

This doesn’t need to be anything extreme, maybe just some light stretching and walking to get your blood pumping.

If still in between work, make sure the activity you do doesn’t take you away from getting back and finishing the job at hand.

 

Wake up early.

This reminds me of the phrase; “The early bird catches the worm”.  It can be tough for many people, but if you study extremely successful people, you’ll quickly discover that the great majority have the habit of waking up early in the morning before the rest of the world.

 

This is ALWAYS important and helps keep us and the world in perspective…..Put your family first.

Here’s a big one to lay on you …

Always put family first, even if the only family you’ve got is close friends.

When you focus on serving and doing things for others, outside your own personal gain, you’ll quickly discover you feel a lot more fulfilled and accomplished.

Finding you purpose often has to do with this habit.

 

Work harder than your competition.

Success is inevitable if you constantly outwork your competition. Make this your mantra and you’ll find yourself reaching your goals at record speed!

If it doesn't challenge you ... It won't change you !

If it doesn’t challenge you … It won’t change you !

 

Use a big white board.

This habit is probably my favorite out of the whole list!

In fact, I’ve got not one but TWO white boards. One is a calendar white board to write daily goals on, while the other is your standard white board to write or draw….YES I said draw…..since our brains work amazingly well with pictures (Google It on “Mind Mapping”)

Use a giant white board to keep your goals close and visible to you while working.

When you goals become crystal clear in your mind, it becomes so much easier to attain them.

 

Share your dream…don’t just visualize…. VERBALIZE !!

Get in the habit of speaking your dreams and goals out loud.

Speaking your dreams gives them life!

This habit becomes even more powerful when the sharing takes place among like minded people.

Surround yourself with people who Inspire and Motivate you.

Surround yourself with people who will build you up. If people around you are constantly tearing you down, then separate yourself from that environment as quickly as possible.

Remember, you will become the average of the five people you hang out with the most.

 

Remember…. Keep a healthy body.

Another Big One…. yet so often forgotten!

Believe it or not, a healthy body is tied to your wallet.

It becomes really hard to maintain a healthy mind when your body, your mind’s home, isn’t working properly !

 

Spend your money only on things that will fuel your dream.

Best, especially at first,  to avoid spending your money on “things” such as cars, clothes, vacations, etc.

Instead, invest your money into personal development along with those things that will fuel your business growth!

 

Every Successful person has done this one … Make a sacrifice !

Attaining success is all about delayed gratification!

Get in the habit of sacrificing “things” in order to acquire the life you so desire!

The road to success isn’t one of luxury and excess! Instead, it’s all about learning about self-control, sacrifice, hard work and discipline!

 

Remember to do this each month…. Review your journals .. they are one of your Best Friends !

Get in the habit of writing in a journal …. then … reviewing what you’ve written. This helps you materialize your thoughts.

 

Always finish your day with what I like to call…. Attitude of Gratitude. Again, using your journal, write down five things you’re thankful for today. 

Develop a habit of being grateful. It’s proven that people who are happy and grateful achieve far more than negative and pessimistic people!

Count your blessings. The mind is a powerful thing. When focused on the right things (your blessings), it has a way of multiplying what it focuses on.

Most of all, each day, remember to FEEL the Rain ~

Remember to Feel the Rain ~
