“Why bad things always happen to me?” How often do you ask this question?
I constantly hear people, who complain about the sorrow, that takes place in their life. People who are drowning in the “duty” of self pity, negativity and the belief that they were born without luck, cursed to suffer, unable to change the direction of their wretched fate.
Sounds unbearable just to read it, and what could I say about being the main character in a life like this!
Back in the days, when I was among those who believed that life is full of pain and suffering, I was constantly telling myself, READ MORE

Inspired by Nia Shank’s post The 10 Commandments of Simple Weight Loss from a couple months ago, I decided to write The 10 Commandments of Strength Training! So, thank you Nia, for the great idea! Here are my 10 commandments!
1.Thou Shall Keep Workouts Short and Intense
This is something I will never get tired of repeating! You don’t need to have half of your day free, in order to find time and fit a workout in your schedule. If you keep your workouts short and intense you will- achieve faster and better results; you will always have time to work out, you won’t get bored with long, monotonous cardio.
You should take the most out of every second spend in the gym- no pointless time sitting on the machines, reading magazines, talking on the phone. You should train with intensity- use heavier weights.
2.Thou Shall Lift with Proper Technique
I know that lifting heavy is tempting. I know how it feels to load the bar, and feel the burn in your muscles, BUT you are allowed to do it ONLY READ MORE
Do you warm up before a workout? Personally, I’ve tried different training methods… such, where you open the door, enter the gym, load the maximum weights on the bar and immediately begin lifting; such, where you spend pointlessly, long time jumping and sweating around, trying to warm up; such, where you walk on the treadmill and read a magazine or watch a movie and so on.
What is the conclusion I made?
Even though there are a lot of logical and not so logical arguments READ MORE
I’ve always been interested in reading and studying the connection between the food we eat and the corresponding reaction of the hormones in the body!
Lately I am reading a lot about progesterone, estrogen, carbs, fats and women! Probably you already guessed, that the men’s part of my readers, are gonna be bored with today’s post, but… this is what is on my mind and I decided to share with you the information, I’ve been collecting.
In order to save you some time, I will just remind you that during the first phase of your cycle, estrogen is dominating, and the second one is characterized with progesterone dominance.
How does that matter and why am I mentioning it? Well, If you adapt your nutrition, so together with the change in your hormonal levels, you adjust the ratio between fats and carbs in your meals, you could get rid of the carb cravings, that READ MORE
Lately, a lot of people are asking me for Intermittent Fasting. That is why a couple weeks ago I wrote the post “Everything You Need to Know about Intermittent Fasting” and I promised you that every week I will post an interview, with somebody who is following IF and already has a solid experience with this way of eating! You could read the previous interviews about Intermittent Fasting- with Marianne Kane (here ), and Tsvetan Ivanov( here). Today I have the pleasure of introducing you Teodor Dimitrov. He is a professional baseball player, an avid gym “rat”, and a talented artistic person. We could talk a lot about his gifted personality, and probably I will take another interview with him in the future, so you could get to know him and all his activities better, but today our focus will be on his experience with Intermittent Fasting. He has pretty good knowledge about strength training and nutrition, and it was really interesting to get to know more about his take on IF!
Ines Subashka: How long have you been following Intermittent Fasting?
Teodor Dimitrov: READ MORE
We weed out reality, according to our own beliefs; we weed out, what we see, feel or notice. What is your opinion about life? You probably think that it is unfair, cruel, hard… that just hypocrisy, villainy, lies and impertinence are the way to succeed. Probably you are thinking that people are evil, jealous and unscrupulous.
Am I right? Is that what you are thinking? Then, I am sure that your daily experience just bears out this beliefs. I am sure that everything, that takes place in your life, is READ MORE
