Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 60

by

Joseph

 

I made it to the gym last Saturday, and the place was more crowded than during the week. Here are the results of the workout:

 

Saturday, July 13, 2019
 
machine iso-lateral high row
 
320 lb (or 160 in each hand separately x5x4, right, 160 lb each hand x5x4 left, 
standing fixed barbell overhead press and hold
 
110 x 5x25s
 
dumbbell row
 
70 lb x10x4
 
All of the Olympic bars were in use, so I made best use of the equipment available. Hopefully, I can get access to one of the Olympic bars when I get back to the gym this week. 
 
When I exercise again, I'll be lifting heavy weights.
 
I'll keep you posted.
 
 
 
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14

Barbell Floor Press Cardiovascular Training Workout

I did not go to the gym last week, but I  still found time to exercise. I decided to write this entry about mowing my lawn with a manual mower. It takes a great deal more effort to cut grass using your own power rather than a gas powered machine. I am grateful for functional strength, being able to move about and do things because there are millions upon millions of people who are unable to do so.

When I return to the gym, I'll be lifting heavy again.

I'll keep you posted.

 

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14

Getting Rid of Earwigs Naturally

Getting Rid of Earwigs Naturally
By Paul T. McCoy

Beliefs about earwigs are certainly not true. They said that earwigs got its name because it enters the human brain through the ears. Earwigs are not dangerous and they do not enter the brain. They are insects that crawl in your house especially if you have stored fruits and vegetable - earwigs are attracted to them.

Earwigs do not reside inside your home. They just crawl inside your home. To prevent them from entering your home, check your windows and doors of any opening that serves as their entry point. Earwigs like moist and damp places. They hide in dark areas outdoor. To avoid earwigs around your home, take away logs, leaves and other dirt. If the infestation is serious, putting stones around the house may help. Bird baths and bird feeders may also eliminate earwigs because they eat them. If earwigs are destroying your plants, a can of vegetable oil or bacon grease can eliminate them.

Using pesticides may help eliminate them, but you need to let them in first before killing them. Here are other ways of eliminating earwigs in your home.

    • Keep green plants away. Earwigs like plants, fruits and vegetables so it is best to keep plants away from your home. Earwigs infest your plants and if you happen to take the plants inside your home, you are also taking the earwigs with you. Earwigs can destruct your home and furniture. Watering your plants is also favorable for earwigs because they like damp and moist areas. Spraying water with soap can eliminate earwigs from the plants.

 

    • Make use of vapor lights. Avoid using white lights because they attract earwigs but if you want to catch them - then using white light is advisable. Place a can with soapy water under the light so earwigs will fall into it and drown themselves.

 

    • Use paper traps. Dampening a newspaper with water or vegetable oil is effective in catching earwigs. Roll the newspaper with a rubber band and place it where earwigs are frequent. Earwigs will crawl inside the newspaper and will die there because they cannot bring themselves out anymore. Throw away the newspaper every morning and remember not to use them as compost for your garden.

 

    • Dry moist areas in your home. Check all areas in the house such as pool, ponds, bird bath and fountains. Dry them to avoid earwig infestation. Since earwigs are attracted to moist and damp, they will stay away from these areas thus eliminating them around your house.

 

    • Boric acid. Use boric acid to naturally kill earwigs. Applying them in your home can be very effective in getting rid of earwigs. Apply boric acid on areas where earwigs pass by like windows, doors, holes, floor, etc. While boric acid is effective in killing insects, be careful in using them because it can be dangerous for children and other pets in the house. Apply it in places that are not accessible for children and pets. If you need to store them, place them where they can't be easily reach.

 

    • Maintain your house clean. A clean house will not just prevent earwigs but other insects and pests as well. Make sure that your house is clean to avoid pest's infestation. Also, after eliminating the earwigs, maintain the cleanliness of your house so they won't keep coming back.

 

  • Eliminate earwig's hiding place. This includes the areas such as log piles, leaf or trunk debris, and stepping stones in your garden.

Although earwigs are not dangerous, you should be careful not to touch them because their bite can be very painful. They usually hide on daytime so use your traps at night when they go out of their place. In some cases, earwigs can be advantageous in the garden because they kill other insects in the garden such as snails, aphids, and other night pests. They do not cause any disease but is really creepy to look at. There are a total of 22 types of earwigs only in the United States. They eat fruits, vegetables, insects and molds. Sealing the cracks and holes in your home can prevent them from going in and affect your living.

It can be tough to identify the insect that is bothering you. Contact HonorGuard Pest Management to get help with identifying and eliminating pests.

5 Effective Ways To Prevent Dog Diabetes

5 Effective Ways To Prevent Dog Diabetes
By Mary L. James

Did you know that there is a whopping 80 percent increase in dog diabetes since the year 2006? Unfortunately, this health problem is very common in canines. According to a veterinanrian in Florida's BluePearl Veterinary Partners, Dr. Anthony Ishak, diabetes is not always prevented in canines. If your fur baby does develop the disease later on, there are many ways how you can help him manage the health problem properly and make it easier for him.

Here are 5 effective ways to prevent diabetes in dogs:

Don't miss your routine check ups

Routine check ups are very important to ensure that your pet is in a healthy state, so don't miss them. If your dog is recommended for a blood test, a vaccination or even just a follow-up visit to the vet then you must show up. Also, don't hesitate to ask advice from your veterinarian if you notice any changes in your dog's appetite, behavior, thirst, urine or poop habits to make sure they're not symptoms of a major health problem. According to Dr. Ishak, many diseases like pancreatitis and Cushing's disease increases a canine's chance of developing diabetes.

Keep your pet physically active

Experts say that regular exercise helps lower the chance of diabetes in both humans and dogs. Exercise helps your pet maintain a healthy weight and regulate his blood sugar levels which greatly contributes to both prevention and management of the disease. A daily walk and some free time to run and play out in the yard or at the park should do it.

Get your female pet spayed

Hormone fluctuations play a role in the risk of the disease. Get female dogs spayed - this does not only help prevent the condition but also lowers the chance of her developing other health problems.

Consider dog food quality

Dogs who eat a high protein diet are less likely to develop the disease compared to those who mostly consume simple carbohydrates in their dog food. A diet rich in protein helps stabilize your pet's blood sugar levels therefore lowers the chance of developing diabetes. When buying dog food, consider the quality of the ingredients used.

Feed your dog more fruits and vegetables

This is a no brainer - eating a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to prevent or manage most health problems, including diabetes. Consider making homemade dog food and treats to make sure your pet is eating healthy.

To prevent or manage dog diabetes, simply follow these tips!

Revealed: The Ultimate Lead Generation Tool

Revealed: The Ultimate Lead Generation Tool

By: Peter Lawless

Create a Referral Strategy
The strategy that I am referring to is a referral strategy. Most importantly, ask them for a referral!For those of you married or with partners, think back to when you met them. Were you with someone you know, was there a connection to someone you know - or were they complete strangers that you just walked up to?

Most businesses will tell you that they do really well due to word of mouth. How well do they do? Most can't quantify it. In addition very few have implemented any formal process or strategy to ensure a referral system is in place.

A Referral Strategy in Practice
Let me share with you a simple strategy, which was put in place by a service garage. You should strongly consider a variant of this strategy for your own business. The garage owner created a simple card, which outlined in 5 short bullets, why they were a great place to get your car service done.

They gave this form to all people who had just had their car serviced. There were two blank spaces on the form. The first one entitled the person whose name was filled in to a 10% discount on their next car service. The second space was for the person who had just had a service.

If the card was used, that person then got a 10% discount as well. In other words there was an incentive to pass on the referral. In addition, there was also a strong subliminal message to the person being referred. They were being told that not only had the referrer had their car serviced and that they were happy with it, they also were prepared to go back again to get their 10% discount.

Create a Referral Strategy Today:
1. List all of your existing customers and categorize them by niche.
2. Ask yourself, what incentive you can give them to send you leads.
3. Set yourself a target of how many referrals you are looking for from each customer.
4. Do it, and measure it.
5. Once you know what works, and what doesn't - modify your system accordingly.

An opportunity lost, could be an opportunity gained.
There is one other great place to get referrals. And that is from the prospects that don't become customers. Let's assume you lose the sale, for whatever reason. You must remember that there is actually good in all people! When they tell you have lost, be nice and understanding, you may do business again at a later stage. Most importantly, ask them for a referral. The chances are, human nature, will kick in and they can absolve their conscience by giving you a referral.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 59

by

Joseph

I had a good workout last week. Here are the results:

 

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

lateral pulldown neutral grip
150x5x5
 
standing fixed barbell overhead press and hold
 
110 x 5x25s
 
inclined pushups
 
20x1

 

It was a crowded, busy day at the gym, and several of the machines, as well as the Olympic bars, were being used by other members. Not to be deterred, I made do with what was available. 

It has been some time since I did a barbell press and hold; 110 pounds is lightweight for me, but it did provide for some pressing exercises. I started out with neutral grip lateral pulldowns because that station was the only one open at the time, and I needed to be doing something. I should have done more sets, but I wanted to d some overhead presses, so I stopped with five. I rounded the day out with twenty inclined pushups.

When I get back to the gym, I'll be doing more overhead presses - hopefully with the Olympic bar.

I'll keep you posted.

 

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14

How To Get Rid Of Centipedes In The House Effectively

How To Get Rid Of Centipedes In The House Effectively
By R Crawford

In order to get rid of centipedes in the house it is necessary to follow a 2 step process that involves humidity and food supply. Centipedes are invertebrates with an exoskeleton, multiple pairs of legs and inhabit most parts of the world. There are about 3000 known species of centipedes with legs ranging from 15 to over 300.

However adaptable they may be, they always need a moist environment to survive because they lack the waxy protective cuticle of insects or spiders. Hence their preference for rocks, piles of leaves or vegetation, wood and so on. At spring time they come out for reproduction and at fall they are lured into houses seeking warmth and food. Because of their need for moist, they are usually fund in parts of the house that mimic their natural environment like basements, kitchen basins, washing machines or laundry rooms.

The common house centipede is called Scutigera Coleoptrata and like all centipedes is a predator. The house centipede is 1 to 2 inches long and has 15 pairs of legs developed in several molts from an original set of just 4 legs when newly hatched. Other larger centipedes like the tropical Scolopendromorpha are born directly with 21 pairs of shorter legs and flexible segments, can reach gigantic size up to 12 inches (30 cm) and feed on mice, lizards, frogs and even tarantulas, while the house centipede has a rigid segmented body with long and fast legs and feeds on other house pests. Unlike other species of centipedes, the house centipede has good eye sight but catches its prey with the aid of antennae too.

Typical house centipede preys include ants, termites, bed bugs, spiders and cockroach nymphs as well as opportunistic kitchen left overs. They hunt at night and this is the time they are usually sighted. Over all the house centipede provides a good service in that it naturally preys on other unwanted house pests that are objectively far more hazardous than the centipede itself. Just think of the many germs and illnesses transmitted by roaches, fleas (including the historic bubonic plague through rat fleas), or blood feeding bed bugs. Centipedes are not after humans nor are they a health hazard like other pests, however there are 2 reasons why home owners want to get rid of centipedes in the house the moment they see one of them.

One reason is that their presence may be the tell tale sign that there is another infestation on which the centipede feed on. The other reason is just their appearance. Centipedes are quite revolting. Couple this with their speed and manoeuvrability and you have a horror movie like creature alive, right in the middle of your room. Unfortunately, as long as centipedes have no reason to leave, they will stay and multiply. So the solution to eliminating them is to give them a reason to leave.

How to get rid of centipedes in the house then? Tidy up the clutter in the bathroom, kitchen, basement and all known humid spots where centipedes rest. Use dehumidifiers and desiccators to dry up as much as possible the environment and allow for maximum ventilation. This way the centipedes will have a hard time in keeping their body moist and may want to leave.

In their presence is persistent it may be a sign that they have found a steady food supply on which to feed on. This means you may have more than just a centipede problem but also roaches, ants or any other bug enticing the centipede to stay. In this case you may need to follow a pest eradication procedure in 2 steps, both indoor and outdoor to get rid of all pests including the top of the food chain, the centipedes themselves.

Find out more on the procedure and how to get rid of centipedes in the house. Read more on how to get rid of centipedes in the house.

The 7 Step Challenge - Does Your Marketing Company Measure Up?

The 7 Step Challenge - Does Your Marketing Company Measure Up?

By: Peter Lawless

All companies are set up with one key goal in mind - to make money. Owners and investors put money into a company based on a business idea and plan. However, without continued and profitable sales they will fail.

It is essential that business owners realise how crucial it is to plan their sales and marketing effectively. This means understanding why people buy their products, who buys them, what problems purchasing those products solve, and what solving those problems enables the purchaser to do. Finally understanding how customers will put a value on the ownership of the product, as well as understanding the cost of not buying them.

In line with this, it is also very important to know the decision making process and also who their competitors are. This will impact the sales and marketing strategy, as well as pricing.

If you are not an experienced Sales or Marketing Manager, or indeed do not have the time to do everything yourself, you should look to investing in some services to compliment your own skill set. Below are some criteria, you should consider, before deciding on someone to help you generate additional business;


Experience -
Do they have relevant experience in my type of business - Do they have satisfied customers?

Understanding -
Do they understand what my issues and problems are - More importantly, do they understand my target market's issues?

Methodology -
Do they follow and implement proven processes - Will they work for my business?

Measurement -
Do they track all results - Can I see exactly what I am getting for my money?

Shared Risk -
Do they work on a flat or fixed Fee - Or is their remuneration part based on my actual sales?

Credibility -
Do they sound believable - Am I prepared to trust the future of my business with this firm?

Integrity -
How honest are they with me - Are my customer contacts, plans and aspirations safe?

And finally

Passion -
Do they have a passion to succeed in their own business, which will reflect on what they do for my Business?

Any engagement with an outside firm should be based on partnership. You need to share common values, and beliefs. While all businesses should operate to make a profit, there also needs to be a guiding principle of care and customer service.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Week 58

by

Joseph

I had a good workout last week. Here's how it went:

 

Monday, June 17, 2019
 
machine chest press
230 x2x1
200 x5x5
 
machine iso-lateral high row
320 lb (or 160 in each hand separately x5x4, right, 160 lb each hand x5x4 left, 320 simultaneously 3x1)
 
lateral pulldown neutral grip
140 x7x4
140x5x1
 
I had 45 minutes to exercise, so I made the best use of that time. Most of the weights lifted/pulled were the same as Tuesday, March 26, 2019 which was the most recent time I went to the gym prior to Monday, June 17, 2019. I decided to pull both iso-lateral grips at the same time when going for the last set of the day; it required more effort than I expected so I'll be doing this more often.
 
When I return to the gym, I'll have those machine press numbers back up again.
 
I'll keep you posted.
 
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
