COVER DESIGN : filo seisakushoOVER 90⁺EXERCISES WITH PHOTOThe weight training way that uses one's weight as a load is the "Bodyweight Training".It is widely known and performed under names such as “Calisthenics”, “Body Weight”, and “Street Workout”.There are many books published on the theme of “bodyweight training” in Japan and the books are often treated as “easy weight training for beginners”.However, the “Bodyweight Training” is not a weight training technique for beginners.If you resist gravity and perfectly control your full body, you use your body as weight.If you challenge yourself with difficult exercises, the operability of your body improves.By doing Set & Reps (the set that is so intense, it causes nausea), you can get a broad chest, V-Taper back, capped shoulder, and six pack abs.This is the "Bodyweight Training". In this book, I would like to tell you the essence of the "Bodyweight Training"I hope that this book will help readers build their bodies and improve their health by touching the essence of the "Bodyweight Training".

Sick to Fit: Three simple techniques that got me from 420 pounds to the cover of Runnera??s World, Good Morning America, and the Today Show

If you’re overweight or obese...If you’re constantly tired, bloated, constipated, achy, sluggish, depressed, or anxious...If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic...If your doctor keeps warning you about the risk of cancer, heart disease, or other lifestyle- reversible calamity...If you’re constantly worried about your blood pressure, weight, insomnia, eating habits... But you still find it next to impossible to stick to a healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle plan... 
Then you might be going about things the wrong way.Let’s face it - despite a flood of information and advice, we’re getting sicker and fatter all the time. That’s because the vast majority of “conventional” advice is outdated, wrong-headed, and just plain ineffective.Within this storm of bad news and bad advice, there’s a growing tribe of outliers who have managed to lose hundreds of pounds, reverse “impossible to cure” diseases, and even - to their own shock and delight - become fit and high-performing athletes.Their stories don’t get a lot of media attention, because they aren’t selling anything. No pills, powders, or potions. No expensive workout gadgets. No late night informercial magic formulas.They simply rediscovered some basic, natural truths about the human animal. What we’re designed to eat. How we’re designed to move. And how we’re meant to think and feel.When we get away from our natural heritage, we suffer. When we return to it, we thrive.Read Sick To Fit to discover how Josh LaJaunie went from a 420-pound food addict to the cover of Runner’s World magazine, as well as live appearances on Good Morning America and The Today Show.Discover the simple secrets for a healthy life that have transformed dozens of members of the Missing Chins Run Club and clients of WellStart Health from sick and sad to fit and fulfilled.In Sick To Fit, you’ll learn:• the one food rule that banishes confusion, eliminates the need to count calories or restrict portion size, and makes you impervious to the marketing and clickbait BS perpetrated by the food industry• how to honor your culture and heritage without suffering from the diseases that are killing your people (coming from the Bayou of South Louisiana, Josh knows a thing or two about being a foodie)• how to use social and family pressure to get stronger and more committed• how to prevent self-sabotage after initial success• how to start exercising safely if you’re overweight (by 20 or 200 pounds)• the four-question FAST Assessment (the “Swiss Army Knife” of sustainable behavior change)• how to master life’s stressors so they don’t turn into binges• how to never “fall off the wagon” again - even if you’ve failed at dozens of diets before• and much more...Written with behavioral health expert Howard Jacobson, PhD, Sick To Fit combines Josh’s journey with cutting edge nutritional, exercise, neurological, and habit science.Sick To Fit is your roadmap to better health and a more joyful life.“Sick To Fit is a captivating, inspiring and practical story of an epic transformation. And don’t be deceived by how entertaining this page-turner of a book is. What you’re about to have fun reading is scientifically proven, and it just might change your life.”Ocean Robbins, Author, 31-Day Food Revolution CEO, Food Revolution Network "A diet book with lots of information leaves you with lots of information. But a book that teaches you how to change your dietary and lifestyle habits – and do it in a way that is compelling, engaging, and eminently practical – a book like that can change your life."Sick to Fit takes everything that we know about what makes people change in business and life, and applies it to eating and lifestyle habits. I've read a tremendous number of books on diet, fitness, and health - and this one is the best."Peter Bregman, Author, Leading with Emotional Courage, CEO, Bregman Partners

Martial Arts and Well-being: Connecting communities and promoting health

Martial Arts and Well-Being explores how martial arts as a source of learning can contribute in important ways to health and well-being, as well as provide other broader social benefits. Using psychological and sociological theory related to behaviour, ritual, perception and reality construction, the book seeks to illustrate, with empirical data, how individuals make sense of and perceive the value of martial arts in their lives. This book draws on data from over 500 people, across all age ranges, and powerfully demonstrates that participating in martial arts can have a profound influence on the construction of behaviour patterns that are directly linked to lifestyle and health. Making individual connections regarding the benefits of practice, improvements to health and well-being – regardless of whether these improvements are ‘true’ in a medical sense – this book offers an important and original window into the importance of beliefs to health and well-being as well as the value of thinking about education as a process of life-long learning.This book will be of great interest to a range of audiences, including researchers, academics and postgraduate students interested in sports and exercise psychology, martial art studies and health and well-being. It should also be of interest to sociologists, social workers and martial arts practitioners.The Open Access version of this book, available at http://www.taylorfrancis.com/doi/view/10.4324/9781315448084, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license.

Swords in the Time of Corona

When this coronavirus, SARS-CoV-19, emerged at the beginning of 2020, I didn’t worry too much about it, because I recognised it as being outside my area of control. There was nothing for me to do, so I just ignored it. Then bit by bit things started to change—the twin threats of death by plague and economic ruin came front and center into our collective awareness.As lockdown progressed it was soon obvious that many of my students were struggling. Things they depended on for their physical, mental, and economic health were simply gone. I realised that I had to focus on my core mission, which is to help my students. Normally, that means help them with their sword problems, but the whole point of practising swordsmanship is to improve your quality of life. And not all the help they needed was directly sword related.Then I thought of the things that were working for me: the mental postures learned from swordsmanship training, that were easing my way through lockdown with minimal stress. I started blogging these ideas as they came up, between March and June 2020, and before long was getting requests from readers to create a book of them. So here it is.Guy’s Lockdown Survival Guide, or, Swords in the Time of Corona. Some of the advice here is lockdown-specific, but most of it is applicable to all sorts of crises. I hope you find it useful.
