The Power Jump

"Power jumping requires the athlete to propel the body upward and lift the feet up to several inches from the surface while making small, fast circular movements with the wrists in order to execute multiple turns of the rope with each jump. This technique develops explosiveness, vertical acceleration, hand and wrist strength, and anaerobic capacity." - Buddy Lee, the world's leading jump rope training expert.

Proteins with a Soul and a Face

"...Glucagon is critical for insulin sensitivity.  You need significant amounts of glucagon to be released consistently, in other words eating protein at every meal, in order to normalize insulin levels.  This needs to be a dense protein source.  Find something that was living, and had a face and a soul, kill it, and bring it's essence into your person." - Robb Wolf
