Super Energise Your Body With This Acupressure Point

 
Super-Energise your body with this acupressure point
by Alan Levi
 
 
Do not utilise this point if you are (or suspect you are) pregnant. In China this point is often used for inducing labour.
 
In this article I am going to introduce you to an aspect of traditional Chinese medicine that could revolutionize your life and increase your well-being a hundred fold. It is the fundamental acupressure point – HE GU (the Valley of Harmony). This point is one of the key acupressure points to be taught in a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) class, but is remarkably easy to locate correctly – and by the time you finish reading this article you will be able to confidently find and massage this point effectively yourself .

BulletProof Your Body


Bullet Proof Your Body

By Alan Levi

 

Do you want to ensure a set of healthy joints, improved posture and stronger lifts?

 

Then you have come to the right place!

 

In the following article I will explore ways that you can incorporate corrective exercise into your existing regime,whilst keeping up the intensity, burning fat and building muscle.

 

First – the boring science bit.

 

What is good posture?Well the American Academy of OrthopaedicSurgeons (1974) define it as “the state of muscular and skeletal balance that protects supporting structures of the body against injury or progressive deformity”.

The TUT workout

This workout is a challenging and powerful way of burning fat rapidly.

 It utilises the principal of TUT training (Time Under Tension). This relates to how long the muscles are stressed under tension. To train muscles appropriately they need to be exposed to tension for certain periods of time that will alter the effect and even the muscle fibres recruited.

1-20 seconds relates to Relative Strength (ie your strength relative to your bodyweight). This is most important for power and explosive athletes or sports people, whether it be boxers, MMA fighters, rugby players, and even footballers (though football is often incorrectly considered to be more of an "aerobic" activity, it really is a succession of sprints and therefore does require levels of relative strength).

Rest 75 seconds exactly

Repeat. 3 times.

Make sure to warm up thoroughly first

The Guide To The Perfect Day

Engineering a blissful and productive day requires some forethought and a degree of creating healthy and productive rituals. Here is a sample of some of the ones I use to ensure an amazing day .
First off, have a warm shower and then blast out cold water onto yourself paying particular attention to your shoulder area, as long as you can tolerate, please. This area is rich in Glut 4 receptors and brown fat. What??!!! I hear you ask? Basically it will make you burn fat better and make you more insulin sensitive.

The Deck Of Cards Workout
