Hello friend. Do you ever feel overloaded with information?
If you enjoy reading 20 articles a day about fitness and nutrition, if you have the time to work out a couple of hours a day, and are already in the best shape you can possibly be in, then this blog is probably not for you.
The purpose of this blog is to provide you with up to date, effective fitness information that is easy to digest.
I am going to admit something right away. My name is Oscar, and I'm a thief. I steal information from the best minds and most successful people in fitness and nutrition. I have used their information to help myself and my clients reach their goals at Control Your Health, LLC.
My belief is that there isn't much in fitness and nutrition that is new. There are smart people, and there is common sense. Smart people often have valuable information on the subject, but lack simplicity in the presentation.
So I am going to try- and please forgive me when I fail- to keep things as simple as possible.
A kung fu master approaches training with a beginner's mindset. A bit counterintuitive, I know.
When it comes to fitness, most people don't want to do beginner exercises. Almost everyone thinks they are at an intermediate level.
They are constantly trying the hot new exercise trend due to boredom with the basics. This is understandable. We all need a little motivation to train, right? That hot new thing can be the spark to get us started again.
I come from the martial arts world. The best performers in any part of human achievement are just better than the rest at the basics. Amateurs practice the basics until they feel they have it right. Pros practice the basics until they don't get it wrong.
Don't complicate your exercise. All the trendy exercises boil down to only a few basic movements, there is nothing new. Why try to do a one arm pushup if you can't even hold a plank position properly?
On my own fitness journey, I had to get humble and stop thinking that I needed to do something original all the time. I progressed the most when ideas were presented in a fresh way that helped me refocus and see a purpose behind the movements, rather than just going through the motions.
