Exercise vs Diet

The lovely people over at AsapSCIENCE have a great quick video covering the debate about which will make you lose weight quicker diet or exercise. Unsurprisingly they say you should do both but they site a study that shows that we in the “industrialized” world are as active as those in the “developing” world so our diet is a big problem. Check out the video for more.

Keep it savage,

Just Breathe

Good morning you lovely Savages! How is your day starting off? If you mentally just said anything negative, or remotely negative, then you need to do 25 jumping jacks, while smiling.

Back? Good. Now why did I have you do that? Two reasons: First, you are a Savage. Savages wake up with a positive attitude, and they kill their day, no negativity here folks. Second, getting your blood pumping, and making you smile at the same time is a psychological way to immediatly improve your mood. Better mood = more productivity, and more productivity means you accomplishing the things you want and need to get done.

Now that you are in a better mood, I need you to focus. It’s time for you to wake up.

30 Push-Ups, 30 Sit-Ups, 30 Squats, 30 Jumping Jacks, 30 Second Squat Hold (Longer if you can manage)

Finished? Excellent. Now sit down, cross your legs if you can, close your eyes, and breathe. Tongue to the roof of your mouth, and try to control it as best as you can, as you want to breathe deeply, in and out, slowly, through the nose.

This morning routine is not meant to bulk you up. It’s not meant to wear you out before you go to work. It is meant to wake you up, get your heart moving, and keep your mood in the positive. Try for a week, and let us and everyone else know how this has worked for you!

Want to take your breathing to the next level? Of course you do! Savages who wear this, may find their breathing on a whole new level. I personally wear mine at 9,000 feet.
