Using the bands forces your whole body to maintain it’s stability throughout an entire exercise movement. This brings to bare multiple muscles simultaneously, so your whole body gets a workout in a short period of time.

Resistance bands are one of the more versatile pieces of workout equipment, because you can adjust the resistance to suit your strength training level, use them in a variety of settings.  Indoors or out these are a great way to get moving now.

You also have reduced Injuries
Because resistance band training is a low-impact workout and is easy on your joints, you can easily avoid muscle strain issues.  Also, as you build your  stabilizer muscle strength this protects joints and keeps them pain-free even with when doing free weight training

So what does this type of training look like and why are these bands a great choice. (what age group is this for ?)

You can perform the same exercise for strength with a heavy band or for endurance and conditioning with a lighter band.  The choice is yours so get started and chose whats right for you.

Ok now my personal review:

Ok so what do I personally think of these resistance bands

I have had this set a couple months now. I really feel like I get as good a workout in the my home anymore.  I can knock out a set every morning or night with no hassle whatsoever.  Sometimes grab them when I am just sitting around in the evening so easy to get in a few reps and I am feeling the difference.

I like the step on strap curl workout. You can even slip the band through the small strip shown which has a small ball sewn in. This lets you safely hook it  anywhere in a door frame and hold it fast while you follow the included routines and build yourself up. An added benefit is I work on arms chest and shoulders and yet can feel it in my stomach, back and legs.  It truly a whole body workout.

 Really I am telling you click on the link below head over to Amazon and pick yourself up a set. Work at your own pace with no one watching. Come on just do it you deserve that better you  your an Overcomer.

Mens walking shoe review, Skechers go walk 3, Most comfortable walking shoe

Skechers Go Walk 3

Ok Yes there is a Go Walk 4, but after reading other peoples reviews I chose this one.  It sure didn’t disappoint me either.  Being a guy 65+ with some recurring foot problem,  I needed help and this was it.  Shoe fit great and I have gotten numerous complements they could not believe it was actually a slip on.  These awesome shoes come with a special patented goga mat insole and great gripping soles on the bottom.
High Ratings and deservedly so:

Here is a review of the Best Mens Walking Shoes for 2018    

They agreed with me and rated it” most comfortable walking shoe” and then went on to actually rate it #1 overall.  I was fully convinced, so I checked around and found that Amazon had them the most competitively priced.  So with their very simple process, I ordered them and received my shoes in just a few days.   I have enjoyed them everyday since.  I have worn them to work at the office,  when going out in the evening,  actually wore them to an engagement party (mine) last week, to church and yes I walk in them a lot.

Comfort is out of this world:

Those goga mat insoles and the great fit make for what I would describe as the best shoe experience ever.

So without hesitation I really want to encourage you to click on the link below and go order your pair of Skechers and you too will be walking on clouds.

3 steps to better health

Where to begin?

Steps to better health

Every journey starts with taking the right steps.  So what are the rights steps to better health or at least the first ones.  As we move along this  journey you’ve joined me on, we will be growing in financial areas, physical, emotional and finally spiritual.  This time lets focus on better health ok?  I show you my 3 steps.  You with me?  Lets start walking.

                        Come on lets get going

Step #1 Get off that couch and start walking

My first step was starting to walk daily.  As I have some feet issues find the right shoe was very important.  I did my home work and checked the rating and found that Skechers had a slip on that was rated #2 overall.  Wow here in a SE Asia country where taking your shoes off before entering main places made a slip on ideal I was interested.

Next I compared prices online and found that Amazon rocked price wise.  I placed my order and within a few days these gems were delivered.
 All I can say is wow.  These are simply amazing.  They have this special insole that is called yoga mat some kinda of memory foam.  Not sure what it remembers but feels awesome.  Are my feet perfect now, No.  Can I walk further and more comfortable than before ,  Absolutely .   So this my first step toward getting in better shape.  Lets see whats I can do next.  Whats your first step?

Step #2 Japanese Water Diet

How about we try this  Japanese Water Diet.  I have  taken this as my next step.  After reading many studies this is both good for your body, and easy to do.  I can get up and  drink some water before anything else, ok after morning bathroom break lol.  Lets do this one too ok?

                       Water the elixir of life

Step #3 Quick easy work out

My last step for now in this area was to purchase one more thing from Amazon.  Yeah it is easy to purchase, quick to receive, and ok yes a little lazy.  But wait I am in Laos and send these to friend coming over, so they can bring along, not really lazy just practical.

Ok so what did I buy for better health, toning up, and losing some weigh?  These resistance bands.

They arrived last week and I have to say I love the versatility of this set.   You get 2 hand grips 2 leg straps and an over the door holding strap.  A guide book with a nice set of standard exercises and of course multiple coloured bands,  Each band has a clip at the end so you can use 1 band 2 or more to increase and control the intensity.  Have loved it so far and yes it even makes it hard for a guy like me to find excuses not to do a quick work out.   I keep you informed how I am doing.


Ok so now it’s your turn. Yes you, what steps are you going to take. Come on we can do this together and no you don’t have to go buy something like I did.  Just get up off that couch and move.  Take the first steps to that better you.
