Altitude training

sebalj vacation, wellbeing, workout

I have been on a four weeks vacation at the summer house with my family. Great vacation, and although it was awfully hot, I managed to see my progress. Since I’ve been in exercise mode the last couple of years, I had to continue with it under that hot weather. I was a little shaky, but on the upside, the …

Shift to circuit training

sebalj wellbeing, workout

My tempo these days is unbelievable. I don`t have any time for procrastinating!  But I am so happy that I can handle the change in pace. I lowered my vitamin D intake, I am back on 50,000 IU per day, during the winter I was taking 80,000 IU per day. My weight stopped at 85,5 kg, so I ended with …

Christmas gift

sebalj workout

I  received a wonderful Christmas gift.   It is for doing push-ups. The day after I got it, I had to do it again – those 300 a day, but only once for now, just to see if I can still make it. And I did all 300! Gee, when I woke up the next day, my muscles were sore …

Challenge Accomplished

Today is the day I completed  that 30 days push-up challenge. There are a few people I need to thank for this: Dr. Cicero Coimbra, who introduced me to vitamin D protocol. If you have been following my blog, you probably know he made my life so much easier. Wim Hof, who introduced me to his breathing method and made …

Another work of art

sebalj vacation, workout

Half way there. I’m on my 15th day of doing pushups., and everything is going according to schedule. During this time I only took a painkiller once, to relax my muscles. I think that streching with Tibetans also helped me through this challenge. On another note, there was a shooting arund the kids’ school, so we went to the countryside …

The first week….

sebalj health, workout

The first week of 300 push-ups per day is over. I don’t feel any pain in my muscles, but some kind of mild urinary retention is happening again. Because of that my mind was racing all night, it took me back to a few years ago when I had insomnia due to bladder issues, as well. A friend of mine …

300-push-ups-a-day challenge

sebalj health, workout

I received a great support for my blog, the biggest support! Something in me just won’t let it go. A few days ago I started with that 300-push-ups-a-day challenge (https://doctor.ndtv.com/living-healthy/benefits-of-push-ups-7-benefits-you-must-know-1881047?amp=1), it was the 4th of September. Hof (breathing) gave me the strength to do it. At first I thought it would be difficult, but it turned out that is really …

Challenge

sebalj health, workout

I’ve been breathing with the Hof technique for a couple of weeks now. On the days that I am resting (not working out), I do 50 pushups after breathing, 3-4 times a day (meaning, 200 pushups on my “resting” day). I’m very satisfied with the results of breathing, I think my challenge would actually be doable: the spinning pull up …

Down with the Sickness

So the flu got me. It was devastating. It began on Wednesday night when I got out of bed to go to the bathroom. Just while going from the bedroom to the bathroom I felt everything around me started to spin and I fell. Well, I still went to the bathroom and then back to sleep. I did not hurt …
