💧Why I Take Cold Showers💧

The benefits of enduring the cold showers | Health benefits |


💬I LOVE taking COLD SHOWERS...

As weird as that may sound, I actually do love taking cold showers. I love the way the coldness of the water changes the way I feel; I feel way better when I go take a cold shower.

I'll take a cold shower anytime of the day, but normally in the morning to wake up. The coldness of the water will wake you up, no doubt. But the benefits of taking cold showers is amazing.

Here are the reasons why I like taking Cold showers

1: Wake up Call
If you're extremely tired, or have little-to no energy, try taking a cold shower. The coldness of the water will forsure wake you up, make you alert, it'll get everything going

2: Increased Blood-Flow
This is important for nutrient flow, aiding in muscle-recovery, and overall recovery.

3: Improve Skin Condition
If you have dry skin or skin issues, try cold showers. After some time of taking cold showers, I have noticed my HAIR and Skin Condition has improved a lot since then. My skin is not as dry, my skin looks healthier and better and my hair isn't as dry, it looks better as if my body needed cold water.

--HOT WATER DAMAGES SKIN AND HAIR IF IT'S TOO HOT

4: Improves your CNS (Nervous System)
Enduring the cold water helps me strengthen my nervous system because of the water being so cold that I have to force myself to stay calm and collective therefore, training my cns to become stronger. This WILL also help strengthen your IMMUNE system.

5: Mood and Energy Improvement
Since I've taken cold showers on the daily, I've noticed that my mood and energy has increased in a positive way. I never knew that 'water' can help affect this in a good way. I noticed that hot water makes me relaxed and tired whereas cold water makes me energized, alert, happier mood, and my emotions are in 'check.' Somehow, enduring the cold water helps with my emotions and the way I act, my mood.

Overall, Cold showers are ideal if you want to be woke up, if you want to be more alert, if you want to enhance your mood, if you want more blood flow throughout your body. I find this very beneficial considering how many athletes are taking ice-cold baths, cryotherapy, etc.
The "Cold water" is actually beneficial.
Try it, let me know how it goes, do this for about a week and see the difference in your life.

Improve Osteogenesis Imperfecta Condition

Improve Osteogenesis Imperfecta Condition

@Oi.Strength | Type 3 Oi | Fitness Enthusiast |





Story:
What's up guys and girls.
I have type 3 Oi, I was born with this disease obviously. Throughout my childhood, I've broken Hundreds of bones, had countless of surgical procedures, and all that sadness stuff. I gotta admit, my life was hell, it was not fun, or at least as enjoyable as others, but it got better.

Growing up, I was learning how to cope with my body, essentially understanding everything about myself, i had to be aware of everything. i was consciously thinking about every step, move, etc. it was tedious but i had to do in order to help myself to not get hurt.

When I hit middle school, my whole process of thinking of life changed, I understood who I was.
From that, i had to think what could i do to improve myself such as strength, muscle, appearance, etc. I wanted to walk, i wanted to get stronger, and have bigger muscles. To obtain that i needed to know how to do it - that is by exercising.

Exercising is the key along with being Consistent. A lot of people end up working out for couple weeks and call it quits, you cannot simply quit, you quit, your progress, your progression isn't going anywhere. it's a habit choice rather than a 'chore.' if you're not having fun while working out, make it fun, do things make make it interesting, switch it up, make it cool to you, don't simply follow people's routines, etc.

Since I've begun my fitness journey, my fractures reduced a shit ton. I know I've gained strength and muscle because I've fallen multiple times off my chair and usually when I fall, I end up being injured, but the times that I fallen recently, I did not get injured. My first intentions were when I fell was that I'm injured, I was upset, but when I got up, I was surprised, I wasn't injured and instantly I gain confidence knowing that I'm doing something right. Training is crucial for healthy body.

Our bodies aren't as strong as 'normal' people, therefore we must take exercising into account. We must train our bodies to become stronger; We cannot be vulnerable to falls, etc. We must build up the weak points.

My fitness journey was hard to go about. I did not know what to do or where to start. I began to research how exercising helps the body - it helps strengthen the bones, muscles and joints; Weightlifting fell into my life and bodyweight training. Weightlifting with low pound weights (e.g. 10lbs), was ideal for me, not everyone needs heavy weights in order to gain strength or muscle, but it does for sure help build much more strength n muscle. Bodyweight training help me gain strength and muscle, it was an easier thing to do than weightlifting because weightlifting can be dangerous at times. I lifted non-heavy weights to train the weak parts of my body. I've tried 'heavy weights' and end up being injured. I train what's weak within my body, improve upon it, find another weak point, improve upon it, repeat. (same goes for bodyweight training)

It's not that hard to go about, it's more of a life-choice, a habit. You got to be consistent. You'll see results, gains, trust me, do it.

7 Things I do To Stay Shredded

7 Things I do To Stay Shredded


Calories and Macros are important to pay attention too if you're wanting to keep your body fat low.

Here are the 7 things I do to stay shredded:
- Previous Article: The Easiest Way To Get Shredded

1: Track Calories and macros
The easiest way to manipulate your body fat % is by tracking your calories n macros. Macros and calories is what gives your body the nutrients, it's the food that you're consuming. You must be wise on what you're eating - typically low carb will help reduce body %. Overall, tracking calories n macros and manipulating it will help you get into shape, either that's gaining or dropping weight. Download an app called, 'myfitnesspal' to get started. It's free.

2: Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated has many many benefits. One of it is keeping yourself full. Many people do not drink enough water, so they think when they are hungry, they indulge in bad foods which leads to weight-gain. Drinking water throughout the day will keep your body functioning right but will also keep you full and will get rid of those unnecessary munchies

3: Eat Clean Foods
Eating clean foods should be known that it'll help with health such as weight/fat-loss, better for your body overall and it's cleaner. Clean foods are tedious to enjoy because it's not sweet or salty, but not all foods has to be bland; you can be creative but don't over do it with the unnecessary bullshit. That's how people end up getting fat and losing their hopes.

4: Exercise Daily - Intensity 
Daily exercises is much much needed. Intensity must be focused on if you're wanting to bring out those definition within your muscles - the aesthetic look. Consistency is the key if you're wanting to stay shredded. If you don't stay consistent, staying or getting shredded will be very very hard.

5: Drink Coffee
Personal preference but I believe coffee helps with weight/fat-loss, it acts like a fat-burner (thermogenic), and it is an appetite suppressant - One of the main things we need to kinda focus on if you have a hard time trying to not eat, try drinking coffee, it'll curb your hunger.

6: Intermittent Fasting
Personal preference but I believe Fasting can be very beneficial for weight/fat-loss, it helps reduce eating and can make you stay on track within your diet/nutrition part.

7: Take care of the body
Overall, the body must be taken care of, and if not, it'll look like complete shit. I mean, look at those people who are unhealthy - they LOOK LIKE SHIT. Straight up. Don't look sloppy, listen to your body, give it what it needs, and start feeling better. You'll perform better, you'll think and act better, n it'll give out good energy.

The Easiest Way to Get Shredded

The Easiest Way to Get Shredded

@oi.strength
To get shredded, it takes some serious commitment, I mean serious commitment . I have gone through some gruesome experience trying to achieve that shredded look/physique.
It's no fun, ask anyone, unless they love to endure pain all day, everyday.
The shredded physique is one that has absolutely no fat, or hardly ANY fat, revealing all of your Aesthetic Muscles. This shows hard work, progress, and just to show off.
I'd recommend to everyone who wants to achieve any type of physique, you must know the in's and out's of Dieting n Nutrition, if you don't, it'll be very complicated and tedious.

To get ripped, you need to
1) Understand Calories and Macros.
Must be able to Manipulate calories/macros in order to progress further.
- Macros such as fats, carbs and proteins needs to be heavily looked at if you're wanting to be shredded!
Normally people with low body fat has low carbs.
2) Must be Committed, ! Be patience 
- Body fat doesn't dramatically reduce over night, give it some time.
3) Consistency
- Must be consistent with your diet, nutrition, workout and manipulation. Your body adapts to the condition you put it in over time, so, you must manipulate calories/macros in order to shock the body.
4) Clean Foods must be Eaten
- No Doubt, this tags along with the Nutrition Side.

Workouts / Routine / Background info- Getting ripped requires working out, and having a good diet. The main primary thing to focus on when achieving the ripped look is to have a diet that is on point (nutrition is good!). The workouts complement the diet that you're undergoing - so, when you're in the low body fat %, the workouts will bring out the muscle 'aesthetics.' Serious cardio isn't needed, draining yourself from water isn't needed, don't deplete yourself completely; your body NEEDS it. 


It IS easy to get Ripped, it's a Mental thing. If you can endure mental pain, you can easily achieve the ripped/shredded look.

My experience: When I was dieting very hard to obtain this aesthetic physique (back when that was my goal), it drained the FUCK out of me. I was constantly tired and Irritable. My mood was constantly changing, I was constantly hungry and I had to sacrifice a lot of things such as foods and going out because I wanted to stay on track to reach my goal.
I fasted to help with fat-loss, I drank a shit ton of coffee to help pee, lose water weight, etc.
I was constantly tracking calories and macros, trying to be on point.
Then I realized how poor my health was due to the lack of consumption of certain nutrients (like fats and carbs), I was probably deficient in a lot of things. My goal somewhat consumed my life, on the daily. I didn't want to ruin my goal or have obstacles in the way, so I had to really focus on what I wanted to achieve.
People who end up getting ripped doesn't always stay ripped. or for at least a long time. Your body doesn't like when you're in the low body fat %, so battling that is a constantly mental thing.



Getting ripped does not require drugs, supplements, or any of that. It requires hard work, consistency, and time.

If you've been eating clean and still not shredded, something is wrong with your nutrition/diet or you may not exercise enough.
-Leave me a comment if you need help.

People who stay shredded have to constantly track Macros and calories in order to sustain their aesthetic physique.

If you're undergoing this type of change, you may feel moody, reduced energy, groggy, irritable, tired, etc. This is due to the lack of Fats/Carbs (or whatever you have reduced and/or eliminated from your diet).

Being in a low fat state (low-body fat) has it's disadvantages. Many people who stay at a low body fat end up taking supplements to help with their goals/body. 

Staying shredded is very tedious, repetitive and draining, some people love this type of challenge!

Stay Safe, Stay Hydrated, Do not go overboard.

Tone Arms | Build Lagging Arms or Legs | Increase Bicep, Tricep, calves, legs, etc! | BFR (Occlusion Training)

Increase SIZE and Tone Arms & LEGS
Occlusion Training @ Bradley Martyn

Blood Flow Restriction or Occlusion training helps bring up lagging body part or can be used as a method to increase size and perhaps strength. I discovered this method a while back from a Fitness Idol (IG/YT) Bradley Martyn, he was explaining that it is beneficial to use for certain body parts such as arms and legs, to help build up size if you're lacking in symmetry or if you're wanting to maximize growth -
 This method helps increase size.
I now use this method to help tone and to bring up size on my arms.

↳What this does: Occlusion training refers to a 'band' being tied to a limb to restrict blood flow, not 100%, just enough to restrict a bit of blood flow to the area that you're wanting to train (For example; Bicep, you can tie a occlusion band around your arm *above bicep* to restrict blood flow).

Occlusion Training Chart (For Body Parts)


Here are some Occlusion Training Videos:

When Occlusion training, be wise on how you train; Don't over do it, you may cause injury due to the lack of blood flow to that area. The point of occlusion training is to get a good pump, that's it, nothing more or less. I'd recommend to take off the band if you're wanting to lift heavy. I would SUGGEST when occlusion training you train with moderate weight.
>  You can make custom occlusion bands at home, simply using a rope, string, etc.
> Don't cut off your circulation!
> Simply tighten it to the point where you feel it, not squeezing your shit.
