Where's RJ? Watching!

Well I'm in Huntington Beach this week. I was at PickUp Stix, my favorite "fast food" place eating my usual Buddha's Feast veggie lunch with tofu, and one of their employees walked by with a back belt brace. Not a medical brace--but one of those over-the-counter models that was a craze about 10 years ago. Not be be redundant, but those things don't prevent your back from getting hurt! She was also morbidly obese, but that's another topic. If you want to protect your back from injury, do some core exercises targeted for your deep spinal stabilizers instead of slapping on a belt over flapping flesh! Continuing on outdated stuff, someone jogged by me the other day wearing one of those rubberized sweatsuits. Now if you're cutting weight as a wrestler, I guess this is one thing, but if you're trying to lose "real" weight, take that damn thing off! You're just going to dehydrate which slows down your pace which gives you less metabolic benefit which means you'll lose less "real" weight that you can actually keep off after you drink more water! Plus it was hot in Cali this week, and those things can be dangerous! Off to the Box Gym tonight...been doing a little more lifting this week. From the Beach, Coach RJ
