This past weekend I held a BJJ seminar for women at Balance Studios in Philadelphia. About twenty grapplechicks attended, and all belt levels were represented. I haven’t requested formal feedback yet, but the informal word is that overall people enjoyed themselves, learned at least one or two useful and immediately implementable things, and appreciated the chance to roll and chat with women they hadn’t met before. (Plus, there were cupcakes.)http://bit.ly/10nlqIO
This week, in part five of my series on the ins and outs of vitamins, we will look at the cholesterol producing all-arounder known as vitamin B5. That might sound strange that we want a cholesterol producer, but it’s actually quite essential in our bodies.

If you are anything like me, there are not many things in life that can put you in a bad mood. Most of the time it’s not worth it.

Variable Resistance Training (VRT), sometimes called accommodating resistance, is a type of training that I’ve been interested in for a while now, and which has been a part of the powerlifting community for even longer. VRT is what you’re seeing when a lifter adds elastic bands or chains to the bar before a lift. This has the effect of increasing the resistance toward the end of the concentric phase of the lift.http://bit.ly/10SAtd7
