A POWERFUL FREQUENCY Within A Sleet Storm ~ March 2 2014

This Video Was Captured March 2, 2014 at 12:15 p.m. (cst). 
Northwest Arkansas- Check out this unusual and powerful frequency within this sleet storm.


COSMIC POWER- UKNOWN Twinkling Light And SCARY Sounds Part Two

This Video Taken Was On January 10, 2014 at 10:09 p.m. (cst).

This has to be one of the most bizarre experiences I have had when trying to capture planets, stars, and the moon in the night sky with my camera. My ultimate favorite thing to capture in the evening is the moon, but something very odd was occurring on this particular night.

I was initially filming a weird pulsating purple sky from the distance but my camera wasn't picking up any of it. I could see it with my eyes but it was not showing up on my camera. All of a sudden, this blinking light appears above the area out of nowhere...just hovering but moving all around in that area of the sky.

Now the fascinating thing about this moment is that I could see it being captured on my camera, but as I looked away from my camera...I saw nothing. I could not see it with my eyes just only through the camera.

After reviewing the video...this light seems to be playing with me. My camera was completely out of my control. I would zoom in and it would zoom me out, the light would appear to break into two and then back in one part...bouncing around in the sky in that one area.

VERY SCARY SOUNDS ON THIS VIDEO...IF YOU CAN TRY TO WATCH THIS VIDEO IN THE DARK AND WITH HEADPHONES TO GET THE FULL EFFECT OF ALL THE SOUNDS CAPTURED IN THIS VIDEO. You will have your regular background noise, a motorcycle and dogs barking on and off...but notice that there are some very weird and strange sounds that seem to be coming from within the atmosphere. I do not live near a busy street and it is always very quiet, but it sounds like heavy traffic and big trucks. I also found that I was the only one crazy person outside because temperatures were below freezing on this night and it was very cold, but at times I could hear unknown yells/screams or people talking. Try to hear the loud, howling, screeching sounds captured at the end of this video. Also, at the bottom of these videos you will see certain lights...these are porch lights from other houses...kind of gave me a point of reference.

Thanks for checking it out. :)


Resistance Band Training During Squats Boosts Force And Power Output

SO HERE YOU HAVE IT! :) 

Movements become ballistic at the end of the range of motion during large, multiple-joint exercises, such as the bench press, squats, and deadlift. In other words, there's less load on the muscles as you get closer to lockout and little motor unit activity in the prime mover muscles (the muscles doing the work). Lifting with resistance bands or chains attached to the bar increases the load at the end of the range of motion.

Australian scientists found that force and power output was greater during back squats performed on a Smith Machine when using resistance bands than during traditional weight training. Also, resistance bands are effective when doing traveling lunges and side shuffles...keeping the tension and force continuously while performing these movements.

They used a force platform to determine the forces created during the exercise. Muscles tend to get larger and stronger when subjected to more tension, so we may infer from this study that training with resistance bands (or chains) is beneficial. It can also be stated that training with resistance bands or chains does increase strength and lean muscle mass more than traditional training methods. SO GOOD NEWS FOR ALL OF THE CLIENTS THAT TRAIN WITH ME...JUDY IS HERE TO STAY!!! LONG LIVE JUDY!!!

Post-Exercise Protein Intake Speeds Tissue Repair


After a hard workout in the gym or on the track, your body must repair damaged tissues using amino acids from protein. Exercise speeds the use of amino acids as fuels, which puts them in short supply during recovery...the time the body repairs and restores itself.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center researchers did a sophisticated study showing that feeding protein (10- 15 grams) and carbs after a endurance exercise increased WHOLE BODY protein synthesis after exercise compared to a placebo. All athletes should eat a high-protein energy bar, protein shake, or a high-protein meal within 30-40 minutes of an intense workout.

So remember, it is SO IMPORTANT to include a post-exercise protein source after each and every one of your workout. It will not only speed up your recovery process, but it will build muscle faster. This is something that definitely works...SO DO IT!!! :)

DEFINITION OF EXERCISES/LANGUAGE IN EXERCISE

1) Straight-legged to Heels-to-Butt Sit-ups- lie flat on the ground with your legs straight and your hands on your head. As you start to do a sit-up bring your heels in to your butt and tap the floor (*the closer the heels come to the butt the harder). As you come out of your sit-up and begin to roll-down straighten out your legs and make sure the heels touch the floor. It should be a smooth, contolled one motion.
2) Burpee In Place-start by jumping straight in the air and then landing in a squat position with hands on the ground. Kick your feet back into the downward position of a push-up. Thrust the feet up and push up with the arms simultaneously.
3) Traveling Forward Burpee- the same concept as the Burpee In Place the only difference is jump forward instead of straight up.
4) Traveling Backward Burpee- the same concept as the Burpee In Place the only difference is jump backward instead of jumping straight up.
5) Burp- also known as a stripped down burpee. Start low and tucked toward the floor. Kick feet out to the bottom portion of a pushup. Then, push with your hands, while thrusting the feet back to the beginnning position (which is low and tucked toward the floor). It is only a half way motion minus without the jump in the air.
6) M.B. or Plate Stand-Ups- lie flat on the ground with your feet planted on the ground. Beginners should use two dumbbells and place on feet. Hold a m.b. or plate over your head (*the heavier the db/plate the easier...the lighter the db/plate or no weight the harder). Quickly move your arms forward and start to sit up. It is very important that you use your arms for momentum and engage your abdominals. Once your arms pass your knees, quickly push forward with your legs, moving into a standing position.
7) Mountain Climbers- start with your body in a push-up plank position. With the hands stationary, alternate the feet back and forth. One leg should be tucked with the knee coming close to your chest and the opposite leg extended. Make sure to place your weight on the balls of the feet.
8) Grasshoppers- your body will begin in the same position you used for mountain climbers. The movement starts by bringing your left foot underneath the body until it touches your right hand. After touching your hand, return the left foot to the starting position and repeat the movement by bringing your right foot across the body to your left hand. You will be on the balls of your feet but when you bring your foot toward your hand you will land on the side of your foot.
9) Wall Sit- place yourself up against a wall and squat down until the thighs are parallel to the floor. Think about forming an L with the bottom portion of your body. Your back is supported against the wall. Hold this position for time. Do not place your hands on your thighs because this takes off the pressure in your legs. Absolutely no movement with this exercise.
10) Bridge- a great exercise that will develop strength and flexibility. It is a static hold that helps improve lower back strength. Start by lying down on the floor with your knees bent and your hands on the floor close to your ears. Lift yourself up with your abdomen pointing upward and with only the hands and the feet on the floor. Your body should create an arched position and you will maintain the upright position for time.
11) Aerobic exercise- means with oxygen. An activity in which demands of muscle for oxygen are met by circulation of oxygen in blood. Distance running, cross-country, skiing, distance cycling are all examples of aerobic activities.
12) Anaerobic Exercise- means without oxygen. Activity in which oxygen demands of muscles are so high that they rely upon an internal metabolic process for oxygen. Short burts of "all-out" activities such as sprinting or weightlifting are examples of anerobic exercises.
13) Burn- also known as "going for the burn." For instance, in endurance exercise, working muscles until lactic acid buildup causes a burning sensation.
14) Concentric- when muscles contract or shorten.
15) Delts- an abbreviation for deltoids, the large triangular muscles of the shoulder which raise the arm away from the body and perform other functions.
16) Eccentric- when muscles lengthen while maintaining tension.
17) Fast-Twitch- refers to muscle cells that fire quickly and are utilized in anaerobic activites like sprinting and powerlifting.
18) Glycogen- can be referred to as a full tank full of stored carbohydrates. Some of it is stored in the liver and some of it is stored in the muscles themselves.
19) Hybrid Lift- is two or more exercise done in one single movement. It is the inverse of a combo lift. For istance, performing a bicep curl while lunging.
20) Interval Training- is a short, high-intensity cardio exercise alternated with longer periods of lower-intensity cardio. It allows you to burn more calories, increase your speed, improve your power, and much more. It is more effective at burning fat while maintaining muscle mass. Combine this type of training with intensity will also increase your metabolic rate to amazing levels. This is because the work you do utilizes a greater percent of the body's muscles.
