Fresh cut western red cedar is probably the most aromatic wood to burn IMHO. I prefer cedar over pine, I live at 5,300 feet so my options for wood is limited to those two.
Dr. Mike Israetel has a lot of good exercise and nutrition info if you wanna listen to podcasts and stuff on your commute.You have shattered his hopes and dreams.
Today I ate my last mcdonald's for the foreseeable future. Starting a very strict meal and exercise plan with my wife. Least I know what and how much of everything I get to eat... Every single day for the next two weeks... Till I get a new plan from the trainer which will be the same for two weeks. We have already decided sushi will be our cheat meal once a week.
Front lunges on a Bosu ball, FML. Anyone wanna work on their core strength, I highly recommend investing in one of those. At my age heavy weights mean tiddlywink...
Heck yup. I haven’t lifted for “gains” in well over 2 decades.Stamina and endurance are more important to me now.
I would say its probably a relevant way to workout for us though considering the size of many of our patients + equipment. I'm not a big dude and don't have extra built in strength that someone who is 6'3 does. Throw-in dropping 25lbs earlier this year and temporarily neutering my lifts, lifting heavy keeps me useful on scene. Sometimes I try to get in and help the FD lift and carry if I dont need to prep the truck lol.Heck yup. I haven’t lifted for “gains” in well over 2 decades.
When I injured my back swimming had me back on my feet, so to speak, and within 2 months I was back to working FT.
So, ya, I’ve long since lost my desire to try and lift a house, or pull a car with my teeth.
i need more carrying a 50lb tool around 30+ minutes at an incident than one time lifting of 100lbs...
Perks of being EMS at fire stand bys. My work usually involves playing on my phone. At most it involves taking dozens of BP's.I changed from lifting heavy to endurance and stamina when I was having trouble on a cut and rescue once. Those Amkus tools sure got heavy after a bit of work. Changed it up with the workouts and now its easier on extended cut and rescues.
