Weekly Workout: Every 4 minutes for 3 sets Row 18/15 cals 15 GHD Hip Extensions (sub for this is a sock hamstring curl) 15 Switch Lunges (weight is up to you, I used 15's) + Every 3 minutes for 3 sets Row 18/15 cals 15 Switch Lunges (weight is up to you, I used 15's) + Every 2 minutes for 3 sets Row 18/15 cals Goal is same pace each set, and same pace for row. Proving that you can maintain the same pace = the correct aerobic pace. Reward the Pacer Quote I'm pondering : “A person dependent on somebody else for everything from potatoes to opinions may declare that he is a free man, and his government may issue a certificate granting him his freedom, but he will not be free. He is that variety of specialist known as a consumer, which means that he is the abject dependent of producers. How can he be free if he can do nothing for himself? What is the First Amendment to him whose mouth is stuck to the tit of the “affluent society”? Men are free precisely to the extent that they are equal to their own needs. The most able are the most free.”
- Wendell Berry : Discipline and Hope in A Continuous Harmony (1972) What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating: Food Independence & Planetary Evolution: Zach Bush, MD | Rich Roll Podcast A mind-blowing conversation about pesticides, soil health, COVID-19 and the future of humanity. While 3/4 of this chat is sad statistics, its very important to absorb this, as it may provide motivation and a different lens to see through when approaching both your health and the earths health. Dr Bush ends with an amazing solution-based approach and long rant that will leave you speechless. Strap on your seat belt prior to listening to this. A few notes:
At our current rate of destroying our soil we have 60 growing years left before it does not produce food
At our current rate of disease the human being species has 70 years left on this planet.
A 15 year old today, has the biology of a 60 year old in the 1950's
46% of children have a chronic disease
By 2030 1 out of 3 children will be diagnosed with autism
Random: This map shows the amount of Pesticide Glyphosate (aka Round Up) applied to farm fields in 2017 (latest published map) Notice the Central U.S. where the majority of our GMO wheat, corn and soy come from. The run-off from these fields into the Mississippi river has caused a dead zone of 6952 square miles in the Gulf of Mexico which is equivalent to the land mass of Massachusetts. "Cancer Alley" is also located along the Mississippi between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, an area who's name explains one of the highest rates of cancer in the U.S.
Pesticide Map I recommend starting to research regenerative agriculture (no till, no chemicals), as its the future of farming and a major player in restoring earth back to a long-term habitable place.
