I’ve been playing around with the Dice Games recently and seeing how creative I can be. Recently my wrist has been bothering me so I decided to rest it and do some isometric (static) exercises. I mostly focused on exercising my core so I did the following:
Have you ever been to a national park and wished you could live there? Maybe even work there? Well when I was younger I worked on Yellowstone National Park and that is what sparked my interest in working in the outdoors. So I sat down with the head of Marketing for Xanterra, Rick Hoeninghausen, and he explains exactly the steps to apply to live and work on a National Park.
If you have ever wanted to work on any of the following National Parks, you need to check out this podcast on how to apply there: Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park, Glacier National Park, The Oasis At Death Valley, Cedar Creek Lodge, The Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Rocky Mountain National Park
Something I have often disregarded and, I think is probably one of the most commonly sacrificed pillars of health, is sleep. The more I have learned about sleep recently, the more I have been concerned and aware about my sleeping habits and I believe that will be true for you as well. If you learn more about the benefits and advantages of sleep, you might begin to be weary of how much you are sleeping.
Since doing my How 2 Tuesday podcast on how to help The Bahamas I have been getting a lot of emails about how to help. I also have learned more information about organizations where you can donate. Below are buttons to go ahead and donate and underneath the buttons you can find descriptions about the organization.
Hurricane Dorian is still over the Bahamas and from the videos that I have seen it is unbelievable how bad it is. I thought a good podcast for today would be How To Help the Bahamas. The ways in which you can help are through supplies, finances, time or physical efforts and the organizations you can give to are coming together now.
Often when I’m traveling for work and find myself in a new area I’ll use this workout to see the town. The workout is 3 miles and 300 pushups and you can mix them up as much as you’d like. You can do all 300 pushups before you start your run, you can do 100 pushups every mile or you can come up with some other kind of variation.
Josh Thomas of Vibe Kayaks lives by the motto; “getting more of out there and less of in here,” and he joins me today to talk about one way of “getting more of out there” which is kayak fishing. I asked Josh what his quick little introduction to kayak fishing would be and he gave me some great pointers on how to get into kayak fishing and what factors to consider. When looking into kayak fishing you need to decide what you are going to use the kayak for, there are many different kinds of boats, and similarly, many different kinds of kayaks. What kind of water are you going to be fishing in? What kind of fish are you fishing for? How do you want to rig your kayak? Do you want to be standing and stable or paddling and quick?
It is 10:50 am and I have been working at a serious pace since 7:30 am. So far, we have run 11 miles, 3 sets of stairs, 5 runs up the steepest hill in town, 30 burpees, 30 clap pushups, 200 weighted pullups, 400 weighted pushups, and 600 weighted squats (2 Murphs and a bunch of running). I have already consumed and sweated out over a gallon of water, but right now, I am just staring at a barbell and wondering if I can pick it up.
The barbell was 155 pounds and was the single implement to a classic CrossFit hero workout called DT.
“Crazy” Alberto Knie is so passionate that it comes off as crazy. Alberto is very dedicated to pursuing whatever fish that is in his field, and he will pursue it anytime of the day or night and he does it with great precision. He just loves to fish and has given up a lot of things to get into fishing.
