Easily haled as one of the best posse cut remixes in HipHop history. Flava In Ya Ear Remix dropped about 20 years ago. Look how far we have come in history. Kids who listen to hiphop today hardly know LL as an artist. The are used to seeing him as a character on NCIS: LA (more…)
I’m approaching the end of the first week of the Handstand challenge. I was incorrect in where I thought the difficulty would lie. Getting into position when you are facing the wall is easier than back to the wall. Arm and back strength is decent. Your core is where the key is. When you are in a handstand you are essentially doing a vertical plank. Which means core and glutes flexed. So where my difficulty lies is when attempting to hold the handstand for 5 minutes is keeping those abs tight. I end up breaking the 5 minutes into 30-45 intervals. Go up. Hold it. Come down. Gather myself go up again and repeat until I hear that beautiful alarm sound.
Run the Jewels is the Gift that just keeps on giving. If you haven’t gotten a chance to listen to #KillerMike and #EL-p , go back and forth as a duo How can you call yourself a Hiphop fan? Arguably one of the top 10 hiphop albums of 2013. I dare you to name 10 better duo in the past Year or two.
I was glad to catch up with this. Jason Momoa’s portrayal of Phillip Kopus is intriguing. He is menacing with out hamming it up. You can tell that his character takes no joy in his work. His presence is known from the first time you see him on screen. I can see already that there is some depth to the characters. There aren’t a bunch of stereotypes running around starring the show. One episode in and I do want to know more. Do you have any problems with this first episode? Let us know in the comments below.
In the episode “The Locked Room” Martin and Rust have an exchange that colors their whole relationship. They have the same job and are even partners but they don’t approach life nor their job the same way. Rust’s past experiences have led him to focus complete on his job. At times it seems that Rust is completely unimpressed with anything besides the cases. Martin tends to look outside of the job and his home for something else to focus on.
The KLLRWLLKRW way is to keep challenging your body by setting goals in measurable ways. If you see a difference that you like then you continue with the methods that got you there. This year I’ve tried:
Breakfast within and hour of waking
Yoga twice a day for 30 days
30/30 squat challenge
And to think we are only starting the 3 month of the year. My next goal is to get closer to being able to do a free-standing handstand. This type of body movement can’t be accomplished with just brute strength. It takes balance and concentration. Obviously, the bigger and taller you are the more difficult this will be for you.

Are we witnessing the beginning of a cinematic trend in Hollywood? In Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel there is a brief moment where he is underwater and floating with no visible attempts to escape. In the trailer of Noah, Russell Crowe is filmed in a similar scene. I think this happens more in movies that have action where they find a scene gets a reaction then Hollywood tries to fit it into their next movie until the point that it becomes cliche like the scene where Keanu Reeves avoids all of the bullets in the Matrix. Maybe I’m jumping the gun. Only time will tell.
what can I say about this challenge? Hmm. Well I can say Tuesday was the last day and Wednesday night I chose to take a day off to bed and I can say that I truly missed the challenge. I created a habit. I got into bed thinking I forgot to do my 3o/30 squat. If I’m being honest I did alright. I got 26/30 days. It was way more difficult than it appears or sounds.
Halfway through I could get one heel down but not the left. By the end of it I still favored my right side. Left did not come down as low as the right. One thing that changed was that I could feel my feet strength improve. There were definitely days where I walked around with more pep in my step. Practically bouncing because my feet were stronger than previous months.
While I probably won’t do the squat for 30 minutes a day since the challenge is over I can see the value in it. The resting squat will likely remain as a staple in my warm-up or cool down stretches. Its a real example of how you get lower by pushing those knees outward. Very important thing to know if you are doing weighted squats A2G.
