Spartacus Workout
Gladiators were renown for great abs and explosive leg work and this workout is here to help you shape your abs and get some real power to your lower limbs. 

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level. 

What it works: lateral abs, core, glutes, shoulders, triceps, chest, quads, front hip flexors. 

Tips: Perform jumping lunges, landing on the ball of the foot each time to absorb the shock and push off in one smooth motion. 

Make it better: When performing deep side lunges keep your feet flat on the floor, do not come up on the ball of the foot. This increases the load on your adductors (the inner thigh tendons) and side hip flexors. Better still, when transferring your body weight from one leg to the other resist the temptation to push upwards. This uses your quads and releases the pressure from your adductors and side hip flexors as your body rises up. Instead transfer your body weight from side to side keeping your head at the same level at all times. This forces the quads to stretch a little too and increases the benefits of the exercise. .

Make it harder:  Speed it up. Perform everything apart from the plank exercises at your top speed without breaking form. This forces your muscles to work through a routine, helps establish the necessary muscle memory and builds up some short-twitch muscle fibre.  

Body types this can work for: Like every workout we put together this is for everyone. Having said that if you're Naturally skinny (Ectomorph) will find that it helps you get stronger and put on some muscle. If you're naturally muscled (Mesomorph) will find that it helps you get faster and a little more flexible. If you're on the heavy side (Endomorph) you will find that you gain both speed and agility from it.   

Perfect for: Anyone looking to make a name for themselves using a gladius in the Colosseum. Plus, if you're looking for a workout that helps you strengthen your core and build up some nice power in your muscles then this is it.

Day's Journey into Night

I'd spent the weekend in Yosemite shooting some Fall colors having a lovely, laid back time to cap off my birthday week with my good buddy, Marc.  I was off through Tuesday and on Monday afternoon wandered the valley alone debating whether I should meet up with my other good buddy, Darvin or head over to Mono Lake to get a shot of a lesser known area I've wanted for some time.  Obviously I ended up at Mono Lake though this was not the shot I was after and was more happenstance.  Coming over the Tioga Pass I remembered the moon would be rising and thought I might like getting these sand tufas bathed in moonlight.  After stopping at the Chevron to change into some warmer clothing and get a hot cup of coffee (their last night open before closing for winter!) I headed over arriving at this area just as the moon glow defined the distant mountains.  I found my way by flashlight and decided on a comp to get the moon as it crested the tufa.  This is three shots, one for the tufa, one for the sky, one for the midnight sun.  I did end up going to the other spot to get the other shot I wanted, but got a shoe stuck in some very disgusting mud which was difficult to remove, finding I would be unable to get to my preferred location.  So I went back to the car to wash my feet, put on some clean socks, warmed my now frozen toes with the car heater, and called it a night.  Next time my journey will include scouting my preferred location by sunlight instead of the moon.  :)

Thanks for looking!

Science Reveals What Sitting All Day at Work Actually Does to Your Body


According to the +TIME , it causes cancer.

But... Contrary to the shocking title, sitting for long periods does not explicitly cause cancer: It led to an increased risk  of two specific types of the disease. These two types also happen to be linked to being overweight and obese, behaviors that are associated with sedentary behavior.

Motion-induced blindness

"In this demonstration the observer focuses at the flickering green dot in the middle. After about 10 seconds, the observer sees one, two or all three of the static yellow dots arranged at the corners of an imaginary equilateral triangle disappear and then reappear. These disappearances and reappearances continue at random for as long as the observer cares to look."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_induced_blindness

Maybe this illusion can be used to demonstrate that you can have an experience without being conscious that it is occurring.

"A popular example illustrating this point is the case of the distracted driver (Armstrong 1968). Lost in thought about his marital problems as he drives down the freeway, he does not pay attention to the visual experiences he is undergoing. He does not notice those experiences. He does not think to himself that he is having so-and-so experiences. But he is having them, all right. After all, he is still seeing other cars and the road ahead. The beliefs he forms on the basis of his visual perceptions about the direction of the road and the locations of the other cars guide his driving. If he weren’t seeing the road and the cars, he would end up in the ditch or worse."
