The title is not just a rhetorical question that happens to be a 1979 song by Gary Numan; it asks a question whether friendship is artificial. With Facebook and social networking, ‘electric’ friends is more of a reality now than it was in 1979. It’s amazing how songs like Are ‘Friends’ Electric? and Together in Electric Dreams were written at a time when computers were just beginning to become more advanced. I’m not saying that 80s music can predict the future, but lyrics from both songs make sense with modern communication: “We’ll always be together, however far it seems. We’ll always be together, together in electric dreams.”
This guy has several videos about jumping rope and I learned a lot from watching them.
I wouldn’t spend all that money on protein powders; I can eat 1/2 a cup of cottage cheese and get 14 g of protein from that.
However, I find that they have good answers to questions about workouts. There are different ways to use dumbells, jump ropes and other fitness equipment. Bodybuilding.com helps find the variety in workouts through articles and videos.
Training for the Iron Eagle triathlon has made me realize that I finally might be able to take on the 18-week Navy Seal Training plan. I don’t plan on joining the Navy, but the workout is a tough, vigorous workout that has high demands that I want to face. I tried doing the workout when I was in England, but it didn’t work because I was out of shape and I didn’t have constant access to a pool or a pull-up bar. As of this moment, I’m still not conditioned enough to start the Navy Seal Workout. The first week includes running 2 miles at an 8:30 minute/mile pace. Right now I’m between a 10-11 minute mile. Pull-ups are also difficult. I can barely squeeze one out; the first week is 3 sets of 3 pull-ups. Running and pull-ups have to be up to par before I start that intense workout. The push-ups, sit-ups and swimming I can already do; my goal is to be able to begin the workout by the beginning of summer so I can have a high amount of time to have long workouts.
I have no idea why my body won’t rest and relax on the weekend. I feel like a speeding car going down a hill with no brakes. I have the urge to do more a lot more work than I really need to do. I don’t know what that’s about. Maybe all I need is to visit Europe again or at least something that will take my mind off of everything that is going on. I need an escape from the desire to work my ass off.
There are many reasons why college is better than high school.
The one that makes college better is all of the fitness classes available for utilization. The fancy Rec Center and the amount of group exercise classes and club sports is incredible. There’s so many different workouts to choose from and so many new workouts to discover. If I could, I would sign up for every kind of fitness class I could in college if I had time. Having a variety of workouts, especially like the ones Eastern has, is perfect for finding a well-rounded workout routine that won’t get boring.
According to a Facebook page for EWU’s Kony 2012 group, 375 people were going to participate in “Cover The Night.”
When reporter Frank McNeily and photographer Evan Sykes arrived at Reese Court, the arranged meeting area for the group, the supporters weren’t there. Or, they were invisible.
Just recently, I discovered Aqua Zumba. I had no idea it was even possible until I enrolled in the class. That class is a guys’ dream; I’m the only guy out of 30 women and the intensity of the workout is high if you’re going for the gold. Exercise is only effective if you enjoy the activity that you’re doing. Aqua Zumba is one of those activities that is so much fun, that you forget that you’re working out. I’m still baffled by how much the arms get worked out; this week, I had hard time shooting hoops because my arms felt like bricks. I hope I find more workouts that I enjoy as much as Aqua Zumba.
