christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
I got this original plan from this pinterest post, but disliked the sexy lady on the side judging me with her abs. So instead I replaced it with a calender so you can mark off each day!
My doctors hope that building more muscle tone will help me manage my heart condition, so I’m determined to do this. But considering I haven’t exercised in like, years, I feel like death after the first day.
You never realize how many 90 jumping jacks are til you hit like 45 and start to feel your stomach in your throat…
Anyways, it’s easily printable and I wish all those that wish to try to get healthier like me all the luck in the world.
Okay, here’s the thing - DO NOT push yourself to get to some arbitrary number that is listed in a workout plan. That way lies major health issues and injuries.
A good guide is to do as many as you feel like you can do comfortably (i.e you are tired but not ‘omg I am going to die’ exhausted) and then maybe do 1-5 more, depending on how difficult you find the action. (The more difficult, the fewer you want to try to do - again, trying to do things while your muscles are all exhausted is how you sprain and strain things because your form goes all to crap. So you want to push yourself WITHOUT your form falling apart.)
Then take the number that you managed and use THAT to set your next goal. You can have the number stated on the plan as your ultimate goal, but you might need some time to get there.
Also, this plan fails in the sense that your body actually needs recovery time in order to build the muscles and repair the damage you’re doing with exercising. Either take every other day off (to let your body rest and recover) or don’t do whole body every day - do legs/lower body one day, and upper body/arms the next. So while you’re working your lower body your upper body gets to rest, and vice versa.
Even the best athletes in the world have rest time built in to their plans, it’s just that necessary.
You’re very correct. I may have to take a second look at this plan and make sure it doesn’t do more harm than good.
The adage is that you don’t get stronger while you’re working, you get stronger while you’re resting.
And if you really don’t feel like you can do a workout on any day because you’re sick or hurt or just absolutely not feeling it, don’t. It’ll be better in the long run to rest—don’t feel guilty about it.
I’m very swamped of late, and will continue to be for the next few months.
I am, however, still trying very hard to make sure I update my Montreal blog every week.
Here is last week’s photo. There will be a new one tomorrow.

when will america learn….
We won’t learn, because our education system sucks
Instead of treating kids like machines in a factory, being created into obedient workers. It looks like in Finland they’re treated like actual humans.
it’s also because all teachers there have masters’ degrees, and teaching is seen as a prestigious profession like medicine or law.
What’s actually wrong with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
What’s wrong with American schools is that they’re an outdated relic of the early 20th century, where the object was to train a child to have the mindset required to work in a factory job long hours of the day, as at the time that mandatory public school was instituted, that was the main expectation of children.
As the industrial age faded and the US entered the era of private sector jobs, the education system failed to reflect that change, and they’re still training us to have the mindset for an industrial job, not a job in today’s job market.
The problem with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
The problem with American schools is that they’re preparing us for jobs that no longer exist.
True. I’d say the same problem partially exists in the undergraduate university system.
