Gain Maximum Strength in 10 MInutes per Day on Paleo Quick Tip of the Day

Isometrics with Chains and Incentive!

This is not a misprint or a mistaken statement: you can indeed gain your own ultimate strength potential in 10 minutes per day!

I mean that sincerely.  Now, it won’t bulk you up like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but it WILL make you as strong as you, given your own frame and bodyweight, can be.  In FACT, this protocol will make you extremely ripped and lean, and strong beyond what anyone would ever suspect!  

Now, doesn’t that sound about perfect, really?  Who really wants to bulk up, especially after the age of 30 or so? Isn’t lean, sculpted strength and ability really what we are all after?  Especially amongst women- what woman wants to be bulky?   Don’t we all want strength and functional ability, strength that includes that of tendons and ligaments, and is there for us lifelong.  Real world strength and resiliance- the power to lift heavy things without injury, to manhandle weights and resistance beyond what the vast majority of our contemporaries can budge!  And for our whole lives long.

This goal can be achieved easily, and as I said in the title, in less than 10 minutes per day.  I do it in front of the television, each and almost every morning.  

You can use a nylon strap to do so, as I did for years, instead of a huge iron power rack such as serious weight lifters do!  I have one of those, and used it for years, but you don’t need one really- a strap or two will do.

There is a forearm forklift strap widely available that is ideal: two straps that are intended to be used to lift furniture and appliances, using the forearms to make the load much easier to handle when moving.  But actually, any strap that is 3 inches or so in width, that can handle a thousand pounds or more, is ideal.

The secret is Isometrics- pushing against an unmoveable resistance!  

Stand on the strap, let’s say you start on your left foot: push up as if you are lifting a heavy dumbell with your left arm overhead.  Only push a little above shoulder height, but push gradually as hard as you can- for about 5 seconds.  

Pause, and repeat: for 6 seconds.  Pause then again, and push as hard as you can for 7 or 8 seconds!  
You have just stimulated your left shoulder girdle, including tendons and ligaments along with the musculature to increase vastly in power and strength.

Next, do the same thing, but push at the half way point above shoulder height, 3 times again.  Then, just short of lockout, repeat 3 times.

You have just achieved, in a tiny amount of time, as you watched television, strengthening your entire left shoulder girdle maximally, and without risk of injury at all, in about a minute or so!

This is the beauty of isometrics!  Now, repeat the same protocol with the right hand. Another minute well spent!  

And so it goes, the most efficient 10 minutes you will ever spend, and you can do it daily to great effect!

After your shoulders, do curls with the exact same left-right protocol, and then do upright rows, followed by lateral shoulder raises, and then bent rows on each side, and finish up with deadlifts against the strap, from low to high, 3x; and finish with front squats against the strap from low to high.

You will be working against an unmovable resistance.  Don’t hold your breath, and breathe as you push, especially with the deadlifts and squats.  Don’t hold back your effort- after all, it is only a matter of seconds, culminating in minutes overall!

Believe it or not, this simple regimen will result in amazing strength increases over your entire body, with the visual results to match!  Pair this with a simple paleo diet of natural real foods, like meats and pastured eggs, no vegetable oils or grains, lots of green veggies and no processed foods: you will become the healthiest happiest you that you can possibly be!!

No gym membership, no “spinning” or jogging or weightlifting needed at all.  Just 10 minutes in the morning, and strict attention to diet.

BUT, if you are like me, you will like your results, and will want to take it a little farther:  

As long as you have already done your 10 essential minutes: why not infuse your muscles with oxygenating blood, since you are already watching TV in the early morning, before anyone else is up?  
So some pushups, and straight-legged situps.  And stretch for God’s sake, on the floor, increasing your mobility along with your rapidly increasing strength and resilience!  

It’s not a big time commitment, and you will find, as I have, that the payoff in health, strength, and simply in how wonderful you feel will be more than worth it!!

In fact, you will probably want to go even further into ancestral living, and will find yourself walking barefoot in a park or woodland, and doing pushups on gymnastic rings a couple of times per week-  

This is what is known as a positive addiction.

Leftist Global Elitists are the Enemy of Ancestral Living on PaleoJays Smoothie Cafe podcast

Yes, history does repeat itself, over and over.  The details are very, very different throughout time, but the gist of it remains the same:  

Self styled elites, which in ancient days meant Kings and Emperors, Warlords and Dictators- they are constantly trying to control, to micromanage, to tell everyone else how to live, and what to do- endlessly!  These fake “leaders” will order us around endlessly, unless we stop them.

In Western Civilization, this has been one of the primary concerns, and one of our greatest successes!  From the Magna Carta, which outlined the protection of ordinary folk from the dictates of despots, to the Declaration of Independence, from which the founding fathers declared the God-given, inalienable rights of mankind.

These were triumphs of Western Civilization, and set the stage for the longest, brightest ascent of human achievement and the reign of peace in all of recorded history.  Centuries of a shining light on a hill- that is the history of modern, western civilization, the envy of the world- a civilization where women as well as men, and then other races as well, were afforded all the rights of living in such an advanced and law-abiding place!

The Left, fueling ‘liberal’ thinking through the Democratic party through the influence of the failed Marxist so-called philosophy started attacking Western Civilization primarily by making the youth feel ‘guilty’ for the West having done so much better than anyone else.  This was a postition founded on envy, and it energizes the left through jeolous hate more than anything else ever could.

Now, you may be asking yourself: “How does this fit into a podcast about ancestral, evolutionary lifestyle and health??”

Well, it has reached the point where today I heard a supposedly ancestral podcast, at least one that pays lip service to natural health by eating evolutionarily appropriate foods, and living in a way unlike that touted by so-called ‘modern’ western medicine, meaning medical “scientism” left over from the 1970’s, that is still overwhelmingly prevalent today in mainstream medicine…

And on this podcast, which I assumed should be one of my allies, a fellow paleo person: I hear a diatribe about Climate Change!  

If ever one thing was a clarion call to ’scientism’, meaning the assumption of scientific principle with nothing to back it up- that thing would be Global Warming, or Climate Change, or whatever kind of nonsense you want to call it!  Voodoo Health perhaps?

The Climate does indeed change- I have no argument there!  We had numerous Ice Ages, and many other tropical ages; too numerous to mention over the eons.  Weather, and climate change happen, and always will happen- the point is, we can’t do anything about it!  Well, except to innovate; to come up with warm furs to wear from mammoths we kill, and to plan for the privations of long winters; things like that!  That is what fueled the evolutionary changes that resulted in Western Civilization, the crowning achievement that is White European Culture.  The envy of the world; copied endlessly, and where everyone wants to live!

My point is this:  Evolutionary health and Wellness!  Living in accordance with our evolution- realizing that grains, health-wise, are a mistake largely.  Discussing the problem, realizing that minimizing grains is a great first step; then, going towards proper, Weston A. Price type preparations is probably a postive step, sprouting grains and using sour dough as a leavening agent is a good idea.  
Including fermented foods in our diet is more than just an ancient convenience: it has profound health benefits, as does grass feeding our cattle, and so on and on…

Abandoning many of our cherished Big Medicine practices like endless screenings like expensive colonoscopies, which can largely be replaces by simple blood tests.  And actually by putting endless, expensive yet profitable (for the medical establishment) tests on the backburner, and instead concentrating on living in accordance with evolutionary health- things like pastured meats, dairy and ample vegetables, smoothies made with coconut milk and pastured eggs, avoiding grains in the large part and exercising daily and getting ample sunshine and fresh air in contact with nature- these things are far more germane to true health than clinical tests in a hospital or clinic that just assess disease, rather than actively building our health!!

Forget Climate Change Frenzy!  It is just a political, Leftist move to put more and more power into Big Government.  To reiterate: Emperors, Kings, Warlords, Dicatators etc.- they all translate into BIG GOVERNMENT.  Bad.  

What is Big Government today?  Our current oppressors??  Those who deny us our own voice, our own autonomy, the rights of each person according to their own industry and worth??

Big Medicine and Big Pharma
Big Agriculture and Confined Animal Feeding Operations
The Democratic Party (Marxist Dividers by Race)
The European Union (Globlalists)
Moslem Invaders

Those listed above are the modern day equivalents of:

King George
The Ancient Persians
Genghis Khan

I am not really exaggerating here: we have just reached such a sad point of lack of historical knowledge, and a downplaying and denigration of our own Western European history that we no longer know our own evolved priorities, just as most of us have even forgotten simply how to eat and live!

I will end with this- go back to our roots.  Study ancient Greece and Rome, learn from our ancestors!  Do not repeat their mistakes.  Uphold law and order; give no special dispensation to those of other races and creeds- they must adapt to our systems of order, or go back to their own failed cultures.  

There can be no exceptions, that only leads to disruption, endless crime, and baseless recriminations because of fake claims such as white privilege.  

Climate Change.  White privilege.  Endless Racism.  

Learn that these are all Marxist buzzwords to destroy what we have built.  Put into the mouths of others to shame us, to make us ‘feel guilty’ for having done so very well!  

WE HAVE done well- or, at least or progenitors have.  They have built the most amazing culture and civilization that has ever existed!  We can build on that, expand it, and encourage other races and cultures to embrace it-

Or else we can collapse in a fit of guilt that is self-induced, pretending we are ‘not worthy’, and go into extinction… all while the rest of the world goes down in flaming ruin and madness.  

Listen to your ancestors; their voice is within you!

Bread CAN be Healthy! Paleo Quick Tip of the Day podcast

There, I said it- bread can actually be good for you!  I can scarcely believe that I actually said that, but there it is.  Properly prepared bread, meaning a true, made from sour dough starter, can be a worthwhile addition to your paleo diet, but it needs to be a true sour dough bread.

This means a bread that is risen without commercial yeast, and without any other addititives such as sugar, oils, ‘bread conditioners’, and the like!  One theory is that the use of conventional, GMO grains (that are heavily sprayed with glyphosate), along with the sugars, vegetable oils, and many dough additives and preservatives are why modern breads are so very unhealthy.

Do, you need to seek out (or else bake your own) loaf; one that has only non-GMO grain (I think rye is the best, both flavor-wise and health-wise), is naturally leavened with wild yeasts, and is free of all other additives other than water and the milled grain itself.  Anything else and it is not really sour dough, and is something that will only hurt your health, not enhance it!

If you an find such a loaf, get it!  (It will not be cheap, nor should it be, since such bread is labor intensive and time consuming to make properly- it is a labor of love)!  The vast majority of ‘sour dough’ breads in the grocery store are not really sour dough at all, just being flavored to seem to be sour dough, without actually being real at all- avoid these!  Just as most pickles and sauer kraut are not really actually fermented and healthy at all, the same is true of most so-called sour dough breads.  They are loaded up with vinegar, which while adding a certain sour tang, kills any beneficial organisms that might be in the product.  

OK.  In my little town, an authentic French sour dough bakery opened a week ago.  Very impressive products, totally true to the sour dough tradition- they even make pastries and a quiche made with the tangy dough- all are wonderful indeed!  It is called the French-tastic bakery, and is not to be missed if in southwest Wisconsin.

Just as we all avoided beans in all forms in early paleo, so too did we avoid all grains, if we were paying attention.  Even potatoes were not to be eaten!  

This was all good advice in the beginning, say 10 years ago, and we all had wonderful health benefits from eliminating all grains, beans, and nightshades.  
But, that was before we knew all about the great importance of the microbiome, or the health of the gut.  And it now appears that, by including a small amount of carbohydrates within our diets (keto be damned!), that our gut microbiome benefits, and so thereby do we.  I believe it is Paul Jaminet who says in his excellent Perfect Health Diet that ideally we all need approximately 1/3 of our diet to be carbohydrates.  But, he does specify that it needs to be safe starches, includiing white and sweet potatoes, and even small amounts of properly prepared beans and grains!!

This adds diversity to our gut microbiome, with many beneficial species helping us out as they live within us.  And, I am here to tell you- an addition of properly prepared sour dough bread does not distress my digestion at all, and only seems to make me healthier.  The fermentation in sour dough neutralizes the phytic acid, and the glycemic response of blood sugar also seems to be vastly reduced, along with the resulting insulin spike.  And the minerals in the grains are also rendered usable by the body, unlike in standard breads where the nutrients are unassimilable after being consumed.

So, enjoy adding bread back into your life- and wonderful bread!  The best you’ve ever had, guaranteed.  
But, one caution- even this bread is a carbohydrate, and so should be somewhat limited.  No “quiche for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, and pizza for supper”, even when sour dough!

Have a slice for breakfast, toasted and with lots of pastured butter.  That’s it for that day…
Next day, try a sandwich of tuna or roast beef, on one slice of wonderful sour dough bread cut in half!  That’s it for that day.  

And so on.  One potato, sweet or white per day is good.  As is one slice of true, wonderful sour dough bread per day.  Any more and you are slip-sliding back into the SAD American diet, that renders our population fat, sick, and diabetic.  

Don’t risk that- you know too much for that!  For, even though you now include a wonderful, limited amount of safe starches within your diet:

You are still a healthy, happy- PALEO PERSON!!

I Live in a Virtual White Ethnostate: Do YOU? And do you Admit it?? on PaleoJays Smoothie Cafe podcast

As a matter of fact, most people choose to self-segregate.  This is both blacks, and whites.  I’m sure it is also as true amongst other races, but there is no more stark contrast in the USA as that between those two most opposite races as black and white.  

This is despite the fact that these races have dwelt together in north America for hundreds of years!  What can be the problem, after all of this time??

Let’s go back to Paleo 101: mankind is an evolved creature.  This is the foundation of why things like neolithic grains and other foodstuffs are so problematic for our health.  We didn’t evolve to eat grasses; we evolved to eat primarily meat, and bugs; other protein sources and small tubers and tiny, ancient fruits with little sugar at all.  This is how we evolved, and such foods give us maximum health: along with living in a state where we get maximum sunlight throughout the day, and adequate exercise as we forage and hunt with primitive weapons, barefoot and using our musculature to drag heavy loads, and do other such work that conforms to our ancestral template, forged over millenia.

After a night of sound sleep, we would wake amidst our tribe, feeling fulfilled and ready to begin another day, forging the destiny of our own people.  This is our true history, and the closer we can remain to this ancient format, the healthier and better off we all are!  Tribally, ancestrally, and PALEOLITHICALLY.  This is our true selves, with stories told at night, archetypal stories of our culture, and our ancestors; stories that reverberated within us both in our dreams, and throughout our waking hours.  

Our tribe was all about us, with members closely resembling us and our forebears: folk whose DNA was very close to those of our own family and ancestry, whose thoughts and aspirations could be reliably known to be very close to our own!  This was all very natural, and healthy overall.

Nowadays, however, we are supposed to pretend, (just as we are supposed to pretend via standard medical protocol), that not only is a low fat, low sodium diet wonderful and proper, along with endless drug prescriptions, prodecures and side effects-but in addition, all races and people are identical, replaceable, and that we should welcome the diversity of all races, creeds, and colors to live within our countries and neighborhoods- and even be happy to pay for it all via our tax dollars through the all-encompassing world-welfare state!

As I foreshadowed earlier: I live in what is, in effect, a virtual ethnostate.  The vast preponderance of my neighbors and fellow townspeople are all of white, European ethnicity; mainly hereabouts of Norwegian and German ethnicity.  And everything works wonderfully!

Crime is very, very low.  Courtesy is wonderful whether in store or in the streets; neighbors are quick to help one another, and government has nothing to do with it.  You could dismantle the sherrif’s department in my town, and no one would notice any difference to months.  Almost every local citizen is armed, and prepared to defend themselves and their neighbors!  (And everyone else knows it)!

All is well and good, until Big Liberal Government steps in.  “Things are not fair”, they say.  You don’t have enough “ethnic diversity”.  The agenda becomes to force other races and cultures within our midst.  You are not usually allowed to say it, but blacks, in particular, have vastly higher crime rates than whites, or any other race.  

VASTLY. Hugely.  OVERWHELMINGLY!  They are just this way; there is no gainsaying it, it is just a FACT.  In every single category, in every country and region and locality where they exist- they commit the vast majority of crimes!  In particular: violent crimes.

Because of this, largely, whites choose to self-segregate.  They congregate in white and Asian suburbs, around chocolate dominated cities, because they would never send their children to the all black schools that are cesspools of endless violence and mayhem, and virtually no learning whatsoever.  They pay exhorbitant amounts for tiny suburban properties, for this reason alone: to live apart from blacks.  

Ironically, and very hyocritically, these same suburban whites profess liberal, ‘multi-cultural’ and leftist sentiments- simply because they have self-segregated themselves, and don’t have to ‘walk the walk’ when it comes to multi-culturalism nonsense.  

There are so many so-called liberals that will work in their inner city “non-profit”, and then commute hours away to live as far from the liberal inner city minorities that they champion and actually live in a nearby red state that they profess to despise- simply in order to take advantage of the lower taxes, better schools, and lack of big governmental interference that they vocalize (loudly!) that they support!

I am here to assuage your guilt, if you have it,- even faintly, paleo person!  

We evolved to live amongst our own tribe!  Our peoples have evolved a long, difficult history in the northlands, that forced us to solve endless problems, like provisioning ourselves for the harsh winters that came yearly.  We evolved an enhanced intellect that was crucial in such survival, and also a strategy for living that included long-term family structures to nurture youngsters through such winters, and privations, for our survival.  This made us unique, and resulted in the amazing achievement that is Western Civilization.

This is our Paleo, Ancestral reality!  This is what we evolved to, and what we and our ancestors created.  No one else did; no one else even could!

Multiculturalism is a lie; a weakness and an infiltration.  Diversity is not a strength, in any way, shape, or form!  

Xenophon traveled throughout the ancient world from Greece.  He came to realize, as he traveled with the 10,000 soldiers that he was a part of, that the people he came from were superior in pretty much every way to those they encountered, no matter how numerous those were.

And so, he and his comrades fought their way back to their ethnocentric homeland, where everything worked admirably, through forces vastly huger in size.  

And now- his views are held up to ridicule in the modern day- largely because most of today’s history moron disciples know no history at all!  Xenophon was right to be xenophobic- he could have told you that!  It is only those who ignore both history, and Biology- they are the ones without a clue.  They are, on the LEFT- despite their fervent protestations: ANTI-SCIENCE!
