Using the derma roller for the third time was never too easy. The sharp pains on my scalp is still reverberating even after 2 days. Right after the 10 minute derma roller session, my scalp is visibly reddish compared to my normal skin tone. However, […]

The Frustrations Of Finding A Free Calisthenics App

The Frustrations Of Finding A Free Calisthenics App

Most calisthenics apps are paid apps. That kinda sucks. For 45 mins I am trying to find an app that will help me with a specific calisthenics exercise called planche. Planche is a type of exercise wherein your whole body is supported by your arms while your chest, torso, and legs are lifted, making an illusion that your whole body is floating.

This is a high level exercise and I want to master it ever since. While it looks easy at first glance, you need to do all the necessary exercises first for your to be able to do this. Plus, I want to track all of my progress in an app with beautiful charts to see my gains, my streaks, and my scheduled training days. The closest app I found was thenx app. It has the necessary training I need to move from beginner level to intermediate in the most efficient away. Even though there are free exercises on the app, the high-level training must be unlocked through a monthly or yearly subscription payments. That’s a bummer. To be honest, it feels like a trap, but business is business. Everyone needs to generate income to produce a high quality content.

Alternative Apps

While the thenx app has a free training courses, you can still use most of its training regimen every day. While I haven’t tried it personally, I cannot recommend it yet. What I can personally recommend is the Nike Training Club app, which has a built in programs for body weight training, yoga, and strength exercises. Its easy to use and most importantly, it’s free.

2nd Derma Roller Experience

2nd Derma Roller Experience

As I look back on my first experience using the derma roller for the first time, nothing prepared me on the pain that lies ahead. It sounds like an exaggeration but since I have low pain tolerance, it painful for me. So how’s my experience using derma roller for the second time?

The experience

It is amazing how my body adjusted on the pain in just a week. Though the pain is still there, I can honestly say I handled it much better earlier today. My initial experience with my derma roller is a painful one and I can honestly say that the pain is at 9/10. Now, it is down to 8.5/10. Yes, it is just a 1.5 difference but the pain is much tolerable today. Last week, the pain is too much that it feels like forever. Now, it just took me 5-8 minutes to finish everything up. However, at this stage, I am still eating sugary foods that can be counterproductive to what I am doing. I need to remove that in my diet to make sure I am not playing a losing game. Till then, I’ll keep you posted!

The Add-In Principle

The Add-In Principle

As I go to work this past few days, I am listening to Darren Hardy’s amazing audiobook, The Compound Effect. The audiobook teaches you how small & mundane habits can compound exponentially when done diligently, consistently, every single day. Now, the audiobook is amazing, that’s a fact. However, I got an insight into the interview by Darren Hardy to Montel Williams about the concept of the Add-In principle.

What is the Add-In principle?

According to Montel, when he was battling his disease called multiple sclerosis, he has to follow a strict diet every single day. What he did is to focus on not something he needs to take out on his diet. Instead, he focused on what he wants to put in instead. So instead of the things we need to remove like sugars, sweets, cakes, and carbonated drinks, especially any type of animal meat, we can focus on what we can have instead, like a delicious salad, a fruit shake, or fresh fruits. Montel fills his brain with what he can have, instead of focusing on depriving himself of what he can’t have. According to the book, instead of focusing on foods he needs to sacrifice, he simply focuses on what he can add-in.

Action mode

The Add-in principle is something you can adopt if you want to change your diet, update your lifestyle, or even accomplish any type of goals. It is a simple tool that can help us revolutionize our daily habits and cement it for the long run. Ready to try this principle? Just let me know!
