“Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” 

These are not words of some crazy crack-pot from the 1st century. They were written in 1958 by Trial Judge Leon Bazile justifying why people of mixed races (like me and my wife!) could not marry.

A biblical and God based justification for legal discrimination against the children of God.

A man, a judge no less, claiming to be doing God's will.

And, based on that reasoning he decided to prosecute Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter causing them to move from Virginia (or they would have to go to prison). 

It is important to keep these words in mind, it is important to keep Judge Bazile in mind, as we read stories now of other Elected or Appointed representatives of the US Government, claiming to be doing God's will by refusing to allow for marriage equality to a different group of our peers.

Go back. Read the words at the top of this post.

The revulsion you feel, the deep and profound bigotry in the name of God you feel, is what in a few years people will feel about those today using very similar words to justify discrimination.

Hero's Journey 2.0
60-Day Fitness Quest

Hero's Journey is a free role-play customizable fitness program. Each day takes you through a stage of the journey, presents you with fresh challenges, opportunities and threats. Each of these is accompanied by exercises that test your skill, push your performance and require you to adapt and develop in order to go on. 

The role play scenario transports your mind into situations where you face incredible odds and have to fight to survive. In the process you get to change not just physically but also mentally. The routines are designed to immerse you into imaginative scenarios where you have to push your mind, forcing yourself to dig deep to find the willpower to not give up, fight the good fight and come out the other side.

The journey is 60 days long and it is totally transformative. When you have really traveled the hero’s path and have gone through your quest, you will have shed uncertainty, fear and doubt along with excess body weight. You will have forged a new character out of yourself, build strength and endurance and developed power. You will stand confident in who you are and what you can do: a true hero to yourself.

FEATURES:
Role-playing environment with day-to-day workouts
Variety of daily routines, unique training options
The Armory - customize your experience (and level up your fitness) with 6 new weapons: heavy sword (pull-ups),  hammer (free weights), bow and arrow (running - long distance and sprints), lasso (jump rope), ring (planks), red ribbon (martial arts). 
Karma Moment - your choices affect your progression and your quest. Choose wisely.
New Point System for tracking your progress (and for a competitive edge). 
Lots of new optional quests and sub quests.
A baby dragon. You get a baby dragon. I repeat - you get a baby dragon. 

Enjoy! :)

If there is one downside to Google Photos (or all photo apps in general) is that whats considered my "Photo stream" is filled with screenshots and memes i download all the time......Maybe part of this is organization on my part, but for an even more intuitive app, it would be awesome is all these "downloads/screenshots" would get put aside on a special bucket of sorts. 

Just a mild rant. #GooglePhotos

Pull-Ups Guide:

Pull-ups are the ultimate form of taking control of your body in your own hands. Think about it: You are lifting your own body weight every time you pull yourself up, using nothing but your arms. This ‘simple’ exercise transforms you into something really special. 

You see, every time you do a pull-up it’s a literal cliffhanger moment. Either you pull yourself up like any hero would or you drop down to certain ‘death’. True upper body strength and control is the ability to pull your entire body weight up… and then do it again, and again and again.

It’s not an easy thing to do, just like any other bodyweight exercise there is no weight control and there is no way for you to make it easier - you weigh as much a as you weigh, the gravity of planet Earth is still pulling you down so the only thing you can control here is your own strength. Pull-ups is the ultimate tag of war you win by pure stubbornness and persistence and eventually it gets easier - because you get stronger.
In the beginning it is always hard, though, pull-ups is the only bodyweight exercise that works primarily your back and biceps and, unless you substitute it with extra weight training these are muscle groups that are very difficult to target otherwise. If you are doing bodyweight training exclusively pull-ups are an absolute must. 
 
YOU NEED TO START, EVEN IF ALL YOU CAN DO IS ONE - JUST LIKE WITH EVERYTHING ELSE, YOU CAN BUILD UP FROM THERE. THE TRICK IS TO TRAIN YOURSELF TO DO THAT ONE PULL-UP FIRST. A BODY THAT CAN PULL ITS ENTIRE BODY WEIGHT UP, ONCE, IS CAPABLE OF CHANGING AND GETTING STRONGER TO DO IT AGAIN. 
 
IN ORDER TO GET THE MOST OUT OF PULL-UPS THEY SHOULD BE PERFORMED CORRECTLY - YOU WANT TO HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER YOUR BODY SO CLEAR THE BAR EVERY TIME YOU PULL YOURSELF UP AND LOWER YOURSELF DOWN ALL THE WAY TO COUNT IT AS ONE REP.

YOU ALSO NEED TO START WORKING YOUR BACK FROM DAY ONE. WHEN YOU START DOING PULL-UPS YOUR ARMS ARE WEAK AND YOUR BODY WEIGHT DRAGS YOU DOWN, SO YOU END UP HANGING WITH YOUR NECK BURIED DEEP IN A ‘WELL’ BETWEEN YOUR SHOULDERS AS YOU HANG BY YOUR ARMS.TO BRING YOUR BACK MUSCLES  INTO PLAY, AS YOU BEGIN YOUR PULL-UP IT’S IMPORTANT TO BRING YOUR NECK OUT OF THAT ‘WELL’ BY SLIGHTLY SHRUGGING YOUR SHOULDERS AND ARCHING YOUR BACK. 
 
THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PULL-UPS YOU CAN DO. YOU CAN DO CLOSE GRIP ONES WITH YOUR HANDS HELD AT ABOUT SHOULDER LENGTH OR YOU CAN TAKE A WIDER GRIP. THE WIDER THE GRIP THE MORE YOU WILL WORK YOUR BACK. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A V-SHAPED BACK YOU SHOULD TAKE A WIDER GRIP EVERY TIME. 
THE WAY YOU GRIP THE BAR WILL ALSO AFFECT WHAT MUSCLES YOU ARE WORKING. THE OVERHAND GRIP WITH YOUR PALMS FACING AWAY FROM YOU IS A PULL-UP BUT AN UNDERHAND GRIP WITH PALMS FACING YOU IS ACTUALLY A CHIN-UP. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS HOW MUCH THEY WORK YOUR BACK, PULL-UPS WORK YOUR BACK A LOT MORE WHEN CHIN-UPS PUT MORE EMPHASIS ON YOUR BICEPS AND ABS. THERE IS NO “BETTER” HERE, THE TWO ARE SIMPLY TWO DIFFERENT EXERCISES THAT USE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT PATHWAY TO BRING DIFFERENT MUSCLE GROUPS INTO PLAY, WHEN YOU LIFT YOUR BODY WEIGHT. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A BIGGER BACK YOU SHOULD BE DOING WIDE GRIP PULL-UPS AND IF YOU WANT TO WORK YOUR BICEPS MORE AND YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR BACK YOU CAN STICK TO CHIN-UPS OR CLOSE GRIP PULL-UPS. 
 
How to strengthen your muscles for pull-ups with weights
If you have free weights at home there are some exercises you can do to help your muscles begin to adjust to carrying a heavier load. It doesn’t matter if your weights are not super-heavy. As with everything that revolves around exercise, doing something is always preferable to doing nothing.

My name is John Chavez and I Endorse this Profile
Introduction
I'm 6'5'' and I can't play Basketball.....or any other sports for that matter. Unless you consider the Legend of Zelda as a sport, because Ganondorf did not know what hit him when I reached his castle of doom in Ocarina of Time.

Always been fascinated by technology. Could have been a Computer Scientist but my passion for design, branding and storytelling steered me towards Marketing. (I might still take on that CS major one day..........I'm looking at you Differential Equations.). However the title: John Chavez - Engineer does have a nice ring to it.  

My dream job would involve working on something ground breaking. Something that changes the rules and redefines the constructs currently established by societies around the globe. Tesla, SpaceX and Stark Industries are good examples........even Google.  For now, Online Marketing is my everyday chow. SEO, branding, reporting and whatever cool thing I read about and can't wait to implement is what I do best (and learning more everyday).
 
A year ago I decided it was time to join a gym and I have not been able to stop ever since. I became extremely passionate discovering how I was able to mold my body almost at will just using the power of sheer will and commitment. Still a work in progress.....and that is ok because it would be boring otherwise.

There is always a great atmosphere at the Rose Quarter (I will forever ignore the new imposed name, and so will any Portlander for that matter). Food & Drink there are always expensive, so I always opt for having a nice dinner with friends before games. Staff are always so nice and helpful and I cant complain about sitting.
