Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498698-How-to-Increase-PushUps-by-400-Boot-Camp No doubt about it in basic training you're gonna gave to do a lot of push ups so you're gonna want to get your push up count as high as possible before you ever meet your drill sergeants. Let me show you the way to do that. You can increase your push up count considerably with this quick and easy routine. First thing you want to do is you want to do some jumping jacks to warm up your body, ok. Just a few. If you can do 25, 30 great. Jumping jacks are simple just like this, ok. Now once your body is warmed up this is the routine you'll really have to do to increase your push up count. The first thing you're gonna wanna do is do diamond push ups to exhaustion and when I mean to exhaustion I mean till you literally cannot push yourself off anymore, ok. And a diamond push up is when your hands are on the ground and it looks like this it's making a diamond. Alright, starting position your arm is straight gonna come down as far as possible gonna push yourself back up. Now again work to exhaustion. Then I want you to wait 30 seconds. Do a normal push up where your hands are normal length. Shoulder width apart, ok. Again you're going to exhaustion. And I'm gonna tell you the reason you're gonna go in this order in just a few minutes. Now we're gonna do wide grip push ups. So your hands are gonna be even farther apart then the normal grip of course. Nice and wide. So in between each of the diamond, the normal and the wide grip you're gonna be taking a 30 second break, gonna be working each to exhaustion. All of those three exercises is one set. You're gonna wanna do three of those every other day and if you're used to where you can do those three exercises without any problems do four sets then five sets then six sets however long you have to go until basic training. Now here's a tip when you're doing diamond push ups you're working your fast twitch muscle fibers in your triceps. When you're doing wide grip you're working your slow twitch muscle fibers in your chest. You're building up your chest your arms and your triceps all on one where you do each of the three variations of push ups. So if you could do twenty push ups before you even start this exercise you should easily be able to do 80 without stopping after you've done a few weeks of this exercise.

There's a million different ways of doing a squat. I'm just going to show you the basic body weight squat, meaning you don't have any weight that you're working with except yourself. As you get stronger, you might want to progress - holding a medicine ball, holding a weight, or even holding your kid, anything that's going to add weight to your legs. This is predominantly a lower based exercise so you're going to focus on your quadriceps muscle groups, your gluts, your hamstrings, and your whole posterior chain. Basically, all of the muscles of the lower body are going to be working in this exercise. You want to start with your feet probably about shoulder width apart. If you're more comfortable a little wider or even externally rotating your fit a bit, just find place that's comfortable for your hips and make sure that your knees always track. A good rule of thumb is to think about your knees going right in between your big toe and your second toe. When you're doing a squat just watch out that your knees are not adducting and collapsing in or abducting and going out. You want to try to maintain the knee in a neutral position The wider you are too, the easier it's going be to balance. If you have stability issues, start wide. If you want to challenge the stability, then you bring your legs a little closer together and challenge your core muscles by challenging your balance. So, standard squat, shoulder width. Something comfortable. You're going to imagine like you're sitting back into a chair, lengthening your spine, reaching your hips back, bending your knees, and then exhale to come up. You're always going to inhale as you lower your body and you're always going to exhale as you lift any weight. In this case, the weight is your body. Exhale, pull the abs in, and come up to vertical tall spine. My tips for the squat, again, aside from the knees is what's going on with your spine. I'm going to show you from the side. If you're facing side you could look at yourself in a mirror and watch your positioning if that helps you when you're first learning. Same thing, sitting back like you're sitting back into a chair and watching that your spine is neutral. That means I'm not doing hyper extension, and I'm not doing excessive flection. I'm just trying to be right in between. You have natural curves to your spine, so you want to maintain those, so nothing excessive forwards or backwards of that. Then just do as many reps as you can do, maintaining good form, breathing in on the way down, exhale on the way up, targeting all the major muscle groups of the lower body.

Okay? I have Chad here again. He's going to throw the double jab at me, which is a basic combination with the hands. And again, instead of throwing the, or parrying, alright, I want to slip the jab either outside or I can slip the jab inside. Okay? When I slip, again, I want to make sure I'm in a good base. I don't want to move my feet as I'm moving my head. So Chad throws a jab, I'll slip to the outside but I want to make sure I slip in on a 45. I don't want to slip out because it'll leave me off balance. So I want to slip in so that I'm in range to maybe counter, you know, for a boxing technique or maybe I can follow up with some knees, whatever that might be. If I slip to the inside, same concept. I want to make sure my head is in on a 45. I don't want to slip my head away because it will leave me off balance. Okay? So he'll throw the jab again, I'll slip to the inside. Okay? Make sure you keep the hands up as you slip. Don't get fancy and leave your hands down. He throws a jab, I'm going to keep the hands up so maybe I can counter. Okay? So now I'll throw the double jab, or I'll throw the jabs at Chad. He'll demo an MMA transition for slipping. He'll slip to the outside and he'll shoot in for that double leg. Okay? Maybe he'll slip to the inside and he'll come in for that clinch. Okay? So basic head movement or slipping for basic punches. Alright, so a basic counter, a Muay Thai counter, off of slipping with a jab, what I can do is use that left leg either to the head or to the body. So I'm going to slip my head out, get that left leg going to the body, obviously the head if he drops that right hand. Okay? So again, as I slip, I switch my feet and then I fire that left leg. Okay? If I throw the jab at Chad he'll come in for that double leg take down and he'll lift, okay? So there's two transitions, Muay Thai or MMA, for your jab.

What Military Branch Should You Join? | Boot Camp

Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498622-What-Military-Branch-Should-You-Join-Boot-Camp Let's review some of the basics about each branch. First of all the marines, they are considered riflemen first. They have more marksmanship training than any other branch, and it has the most difficult basic training regimen. They have the incredible ability to convert dollar power into combat power, as they have no big budget like the Air Force, but they also have lots of military pride. Let's talk about the army, which has the second most intense basic training regimen. They have about three weeks of marksmanship, and recruits can pick from hundreds of different MOS's, which stands for military occupational specialty, and those MOS's translate well into civilian jobs. The navy: deep rooted with tradition, and if you like to travel this is the branch for you. Family men might want to consider the time they are going to spend away from their family though, given the fact that all of the time you are going to spend on ships. Also, if you are claustrophobic, it might not be a good idea to join the Navy, as you are going to be spending a lot of time in tight quarters. If you like large vessels and ships, the Navy is definitely the way to go. They have an awesome inventory of powerful ships. Let's talk about the Air Force. An impressive compilation of machinery and technology. If you are good with computers and technology this is definitely the branch that you should join. It also has the best housing of all the branches too. It's also the most difficult to get into as far as education requirements. The Coast Guard, Uncle Sam's little canoe club. If you like search and rescue missions, if you have an interest in maritime law, if you like environmental protection this is gonna be a good branch for you. You are going to need a high school diploma, and you are going to need to love to swim in order to join the coast guard. And that's it. Think long and hard about your decision because it is difficult to change once you have committed to a certain branch.

So today we're going to go over a dumbbell concentration throw. This is a very old school exercise. You see most guys doing this in their workouts during their arm workouts. It's a very simple exercise but it's very easy to get wrong. Now, with this again, your focus here is to work that bicep through its full range of motion. Really get some blood into it. Good concentrated curls. Now, you're going to choose a weight that you're very comfortable with that you don't have to cheat the exercise with so you don't have to rock your body or anything. You can stay real firm and real concentrated. That's why it's called a concentration curl. With this exercise, you're going to keep your wrists up to the sky, palms to the sky, supinated the whole time. Now, as you come up, you see a lot of guys who don't know what to do with their wrist. As a rule, when you come up, if you try to squeeze so that your pinkies rotate up, it'll actually peak out the bicep a little more. So guys always talk about they want that peak in their bicep. Well what you do is you rotate so that your pinky goes up and thumb goes down. That really contracts that muscle to its fullest. So during concentration throw, that's exactly what you want to try to do. Notice I'm rotating the dumbbell so the pinky comes up. Now, it's also important to breathe during this exercise. Any time you work against gravity is when you want to breathe out. So I'm bringing it up, working against gravity, breathe out. Really squeeze that muscle. Concentrate that muscle. Release, come down slow. Never ever do you want to jerk up and drop it. It's not going to do anything for that muscle. It's not going to do anything for your results. The best results are when you're concentrated. Up, squeeze, down, release. Squeeze, down, release. Now, if size is your goal, then you want to shoot for ten to 15 reps, maybe eight. But 12 is really the standard. So after you perform 12 with one arm, obviously you want to switch to the other. You're going to support your elbow with your leg here. You never want to lock out your elbow completely because that'll do damage to that joint. So you're always going to keep a slight bend in your elbow. Same thing as the other arm. Come up, squeeze, try to rotate your pinky a little tiny bit up. Really peak out your bicep. Come back down. Controlled. Breathe out, squeeze, inhale. And that's your concentration throw.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1IAiCfR Watch more How to Do Taekwondo videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/508723-How-to-Do-Basic-Sitting-Stretches-Taekwondo-Training We are going to be showing you some ground stretches. So first stretch we are going to put our both legs out, like this, and we're going to go down, come up and maybe add like a little twist. Maybe I might do that four to eight times. So we're going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. After you do that a couple of times warming up, now you go down for the stretch. You try to grab your toes and try to keep your upper body low as you can and maybe forward again 10 to 30 seconds and up. If you guys have a little trouble doing this exercise, again, you can start out grabbing the ankles or you can tuck your knees in, grab your toes and slowly work down this way and hold. OK? It takes time. Now the other stretch we are going to do is we are going to put one leg in and one leg out. Keep your upper body straight and try to stretch down. Try to put your head to your knees and go as low as you can. Again, hold about 10 to 30 seconds, come up and switch to the other side and down and up. The next stretch we are going to do is called the butterfly stretch. We are going to put our knees together. One. Now make sure you put your feet all the way in like this. I like to grab my toes and bounce my knees like a butterfly. So do this again maybe 10 to 30 times, bounce, warming up. Now it's time to go down. We're going to keep our backs straight and exhale and breathe down, going down, breathing out. Now up. Now we're going to do this thing called a split stretch. Now we're going to open our legs as wide as you can. Now, again, I like to maybe open a little wider by putting my hands forward and hands back and then kind of push my hip forward, trying to get as much as you can. Now the first thing we're going to do is stretch down the middle. So we're going to go down, one. Now, again, you're trying to go as low as you can, trying to keep your stomach to the ground. Again, hold about 10 to 30 seconds. Up. Go to the side. Use your hands and try to grab your toes. Up. Go to the other side. And these are some ground stretches. I encourage you guys to stretch before, definitely before class, and also when your body is really warmed up, it's great to stretch after class also.

It is both mentally and physically enriching for your dog and it improves your skills as your dogs trainer. an easy trick that you can get started with would be paw, or some people refer to that as shake and what you want to make sure you do with tricks training is keep the training fun and positive for your dog. A good recommendation I'd like to give everyone is to resist the temptation to grab whenever training any behavior - you want them to think it through and in order for them to do that you need to break it down into small achievable steps so you're not necessarily looking for the end result you're looking for anything that's moving in the direction of that. So for paw I'm not going to grab at his feet because he might not like that he's also not using his brain if I'm doing the work for him so dogs if they often cannot get something with their mouth they use their feet so I'm going to put a treat right on Jack's nose and I'm going to have my hand ready when he tries to knock them out of my hand because he can't get them with his mouth and I'm just going to wait for that - I'm going to wait for any paw movement whatsoever - he moved his left paw just a little bit so that was a nice baby step - good I got a lot of movement out of the right one - I'm going to try again - good - I say the word good every time he does the behavior correctly and slowly it seems that I will be able to shake with his paw. The repetition of hearing the word good when his paw touches my paw so he makes that association. So now I think I'm ready to take the treats away - good - he ois still going to get one but I don't necessarily want to put them up front anymore and then we can work with a little duration so he can hold it there - oh beautiful - good and now that he's doing that readily if I'd like to put a verbal que on it I'm going to be able to say - Jack - paw - good - and now I've taught my dog to give paw.

Eric: This is called a spin-back dribble. Dwayne: Spin-back. Eric: It's hard to explain these kind of dribbles, because this is kind of something you have to really practice on Dwayne: Oh, really? Eric: But we're going to try to break it down using the expert dribbler. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: The Roadrunner. Dwayne: Alright. Eric: So you actually want to show the defender. Dwayne: Right. Eric: Your back. Dwayne: Back. Eric: So the defender sees you in front of him first. Dwayne: Right. Eric: And then you actually turn around while maintaining the dribble, and you put the ball in front of him, giving him the illusion he can get it. Dwayne: Right. Eric: But your hands are so quick. Dwayne: Right. Eric: That he's not able to steal the ball. It sounds very complicated. Dwayne: Okay, okay. Eric: But when you become an expert like the Roadrunner, it's child's-play. Dwayne: Alright. Let's see it. Let's see it. Eric: So you're looking at the defender. You go right up on him. Show him your back. Bam. Dwayne: Oh, wow. Eric: That's quick. Bam. Spin-back dribble. Dwayne: And you're certain that these moves work? Because, you know, I've been playing defense all day long, and I'm not really sure. The other ones, but this one? You know what? Come on. I'm playing defense again, because I don't ... Eric: Hey, Swoop, are you sure? Dwayne: No, listen, listen. I can get the ball. I'm going to get the ball. I'm watching you little guy. I'm going to get this ball. I've got it. Come on, baby. Come on. Eric: Hey, Swoop, we need you for the game, man. You were right there. Dwayne: It was right there. I had it, though. It was there. Eric: Relax, man. Listen, listen. That was a nice move right there. I like that one. Good job, buddy. So that's the spin-back dribble. Again, expert moves by an expert ball handler, the Roadrunner. You want to put that ball right in front of the defense. Turn your back on him. Bring it here, and then keep going. That's how you do it. The spin-back dribble.

When he was in high school. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: So this move was made famous by some of the European players, and you may even see a guy like Manu Ginobili doing this move. Dwayne: Oh really? Really? Eric: It's called the God Shammgod move. Dwayne: Okay, I want to see, I want to see. I don't even know who that is. Yeah, this is like above my level. I want to try it. Eric: This is expert level. SO obviously, the Roadrunner being the great dribbler that you are, you're going to go and show them the Shammgod move. Now he needs space for this move. See, what he's going to do is make the defense believe that he's throwing the ball out there. And then they're going to reach for it, and he's not going to move with his same hand. He's going to bring it back with the opposite hand. So it's out, and then bring across. And some fancy footwork. Show them how it's done, Roadrunner. This is the Shammgod move. See that? Either way. He can do it either way. You see that? That's the Shammgod move. Dwayne: Oh, that's nice. That's nice. Okay. I've got to know. I've got to make sure these moves are effective. Okay. I want to see if this move is going to work for me, because I'm, you know, I'm a great defensive player. Eric: You've got to get in the stance first. Dwayne: Okay, okay. I'm in my stance here. He's going to throw the ball out. I almost had that. Eric: You're getting there, man. Dwayne: You know what? You know what? You think you're good or something. Eric: You know what? I think he's like, he's an expert dribbler, and you like, you've been tricked. Dwayne: I'm working on it. Eric: You are working on it. Dwayne: It's going to take practice. Eric: You look good out there. It does take practice. Dwayne: I'm fine. Eric: But you can even learn the Shammgod move if you go in and put a lot of work in like the Roadrunner has. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: So the Shammgod move is obviously an expert level. You want to put that ball out there. Bring it back. Make the defense believe they're going to get it, and then you snatch it back. That's the Shammgod.

Push-ups are great because you don't need any equipment. You can do them anywhere. There's a couple of different variations of doing a push-up, and I'm going to give you some key tips to look out for so you can do them most efficiently, most effectively. Let's come on down. You can do a modified push-up which would be on the knees. I've heard some people call these girl push-ups. There's really no such thing as a girl push-up because guys can do these too. It just depends on whether you need to modify the push-up or not. They are just variations of each other. I'm going to start with the modified push-up. Your hands are probably going to be about shoulder width apart. Just find something comfortable. The biggest mistakes people make here are to internally rotate the hands and potentially put a lot of strain on the shoulder. You want to just get that shoulder into a nice neutral position. You want to watch out that your butt is not back here. It's not wrong to do a push-up here. This is just a very modified version. You're taking away a lot of the weight from the upper body. The purpose is to bring the weight into the upper body. That's what you're working against to make you stronger. You're going to inhale as you go down, just bending at the elbow, and then exhale like you're blowing the floor away. Inhale to come down, exhale like you're blowing the floor away. If you wanted to make it harder, you would take it off of the knees. Same thing, bending the elbows, exhale, drawing the abdominals in, and coming up. The wider your legs are here the easier it's going to be to balance. If you want to challenge the stability, you could move the legs in. Starting with the knees, and maybe even doing a one knee push up. That would be kind of intermediate, something between the modified and the full push-up if you're not ready to go immediately from one to the other. When you're in the push-up, let's start with the head, making sure that your head is not dropping. Sometimes we think we're going further down or not, just our head is. Keeping your head in line so the cervical spine doesn't take any stress, and then the rest of your back too. You want to make sure you're not leading with your hips and breaking. This means that you're not really properly engaging your core. Engage your core. Draw the belly muscles in. Keep your head in line. Inhale to take it down, exhale to come up. There's your push-up, targeting all the major muscle groups of the upper body, mostly the pecks, the chest muscles, the anterior delts, the front of your shoulder, and as you go through elbow flexion and extension, you're working your triceps.

How to Spot Sexual Attraction in Eyes | Body Language
 
03:34
Watch more How to Read Body Language videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501674-How-to-Spot-Sexual-Attraction-in-Eyes-Body-Language Out of all the different non-verbal behaviors, I think that spotting attraction is without a doubt the easiest. We are very emotional creatures and when we're attracted to somebody, it's very, very difficult to hide. People think they're hiding it, but things always slip. One of the ways they slip are essentially the eyes. There are a lot of different ways you can use the eyes to determine whether or not someone's attracted to you. The first thing is essentially eye contact. For the most part, usually we make eye contact with people that we're interested in or people that we're attracted to. Right? But this is not entirely true. Some people are shy or anxious and they're not going to make eye contact. So what you're looking for essentially is a deviation in eye contact. So one of the ways you can use eye contact and there's a little trick that's very, very reliable. So what you're going to do is if you look at somebody in a bar or restaurant or on the street and they break eye contact vertically, so they look down. So you make eye contact with them and they break eye contact vertically and then within 20-30 seconds they reestablish eye contact, approach them. They like you. It's a very, very reliable thing. Essentially what they're doing. You stare at them. They're submitting to you and then they take a little second glance to see who you are. It's very, very, very reliable. The opposite of that would be if you look at somebody and they look at you and they immediately go and break eye contact. Nope, not interested. But what is reliable is they break eye contact and they come back. Break eye contact and then come back. Break eye contact and then come back. It's very interesting. And don't let it wait. If you see that, go right away because the more and more you wait. The more and more eye contact becomes very, very awkward. One of the things that I do in one of my classes is I have people stare each other in the eyes for three minutes without saying anything. They just stare each other in the eyes like this. Try that. Go out and try to stare somebody in the eyes for even 90 seconds. I guarantee you can't do it. It's awkward. It's so awkward because humans are not really at a level intimacy. When you stare somebody in the eyes is so awkward when you're doing it with a stranger. Studies will show that if you stare somebody in the eyes for 90 seconds to three minutes, all of a sudden you're going to like that person a lot better than everybody else in the room because you kind of shared this emotional connection. So eye contact is important in that respect. The second thing you can look for essentially is blink rate. Now, this is really cool. So blink rate correlate with emotional excitement. When we are emotionally excited, our blink rates tend to increase. Right? Average blink rates tend to be below 20 blinks per minute. For most people it really depends on where you are, but it's really hard to nail down what the average blink rate is. But in my experience, it seems to be around 10 blinks per minute. Right? So you see, whenever you see a sudden spike or a bunch of sudden spikes in somebody's blink rate in can be an indication of attraction. In my dating studies you see blink rates through the roof because the person across the table from you has an emotional response. You're attracted to them. The third way of kind of using the eyes to determine attraction is dilation. It's very interesting. Our eyes dilate when we're attracted to something. Right? Go out and find a Maxim magazine or a Playboy magazine or any cover that's predominately men focusing. Every single woman will have her eyes dilated. You never, ever see them constricted. The reason why is because men perceive women with dilated eyes more attractive than women with more constricted eyes. To the point of back in the day prostitutes used to put a specific toxin in their eyes to make them dilate.

Broadway: So, what we need to do is teach you and the people at home what the correct positions are on the basketball court. Swoop: I don't even know what the positions are. Broadway: You don't want to be out of position. Swoop: You sure? Broadway: Yeah. Swoop: But can you show me where it is? Broadway: Yeah, let's go over to the basketball court. Swoop: All right.

Broadway: King Arthur's the point guard. Swoop: OK. Broadway: His job is to initiate the offense ... Swoop: Oh. Broadway: ... to make sure everybody's in their correct position when he calls the play. Swoop: OK. Broadway: So King Arthur's usually gonna use hand signals, or talk and say, "Hey, move over there.' Whatever the case may be. And make sure everybody's in the right place on the court. Swoop: OK. OK. Broadway: Now, he initiates the offense, and the defense. Swoop: Oh, OK. Broadway: So that's the point guard. His job is to know where everybody is on the court at all times. And he's gotta know everybody's positions. Swoop: OK. Broadway: So, then we'll move to my position. Swoop: Oh, no, you said, i could pick. I want the shooting guard. Broadway: No, no, no. Swoop: You said, I could shoot. Broadway: No, I'm the shooting guard. Swoop: Look at my, it's good. Broadway: No, no, no. Swoop: Look at the ... Broadway: I'm the shooting guard. Swoop: Oh, OK. All right. Broadway: So the shooting guard's job is just self-explanatory. Swoop: Right. Broadway: It's to shoot the ball. Swoop: Oh, OK. Broadway: A good shooting guard is somebody who can dribble ... Swoop: Right. Broadway: ... and attack the basket, as well as shoot. His primary goal is to put the ball in the basket, and get the team points. Swoop: All right. Sounds good. Broadway: Now, we're gonna move to what's called a three man, or wing man. Swoop: Three man. Oh, yeah, I could do that. I could do that. I'm a wing. I'm a good wing man. I got a lot of friends, always saying, I'm a good wing man. I'm a good wing man. Broadway: No, no, no way. Swoop: You got a wing already? Broadway: Yeah, 540. Swoop: Oh, OK. OK. Broadway: Mr. 540. The wing man, or the three man, is usually the best athlete on the court. Swoop: Uh-huh. Broadway: So Mr. 540 is gonna do a little bit of everything. Swoop: Yeah. Broadway: On the offense if he can shoot the shot, it's good. Swoop: Yeah, yeah. Broadway: But mostly he wants to finish in transition. Swoop: Finish. Broadway: He wants to be able to slash to the basket. Swoop: OK. Broadway: Defensively and offensively, he wants to help out on the backboards and get rebounds. Swoop: OK. OK. Broadway: So, he's kind of a mix of a guard, and a forward. Swoop: OK. Sounds good. Broadway: So, now we move on

To begin with kung fu is based on nature. And one of the things that we find in nature are animals. And animals can determine the attitude behind what we are doing, the spirit behind the kung fu that we are practicing. So the five animals, they are; the tiger, dragon, leopard, snake and crane. Now there are tons of other animals but these are the five basic animals. So lets take a look at some of the animal movements. First, we have the tiger claw. The tiger claw incorporates the use of all five fingers as well as the palm. When using the five fingers, each finger would find a point. I can not only grab, but I can also rake. The dragon. The dragon uses a claw too. Its more like a talon though. Notice how the fingers are spread out. Here I can strike. I can strike. I can rake. I can pull. That's the dragon. Next, we have the leopard. The leopard paw is a flat fist. Notice how the fingers are nice and tight. Hand is flat. You can use this area to strike. Boom. Or we could strike, this way. If you were punching I can block and then, strike. Okay. The leopard is known for its strength and its power as it strikes. Now we'll look at the snake. Alright. When we are working the snake, we are working quick hand movements. Okay. Both inside, you can work outside as well. We can block down and then go up. Snake is known for its flexibility. The crane. All the fingertips come together. Hooking at the wrist. I can block, with the wrist. I can strike, boom, with the wrist. I can poke with the fingertips to soft areas. These, are the five animals of shaolin.

Now, we're going to teach you the gancho. We're going to do it from a forward ocho and from a back ocho. A gancho, similar to a bolero [sp], you're going to take it from a rock step or from a stop. You're going to brush the floor and try to kick your butt. Just brush the floor and try to brush from your hips. Just like a walk, but it's just going to lift up, and you're going to see why now. B: A common mistake that most followers at the beginning do is, when they come around into the gancho, they leave it here. You want to put it all the way back. OK, let's try it with the basic. Let's take it from a back ocho. From the back ocho, you're going to over-rotate the back ocho. No longer are you going to lead it here, but you're going to lead it closer to you. Place the foot around her foot into a gancho. A: And, I brush back. I feel the lead just like a back step. Since his leg is in the way, that is what's creating my leg to lift in the air. B: We'll continue in the basic, to a cross, forward ocho, and we stop the trailing leg. Now, we lead a back step and this allows the gancho to happen. Notice that I am not in a straight leg, otherwise she can't do the gancho. I receive the gancho on a bent leg. This holds true for the gancho in the back ocho. Make a resolution, rosalida, from a forward step. Let's look at this from a different angle - we have an ocho, and we overturn one of the ochos, place it, come back to feet together. Go into the basic step, to the cross. Lead a forward step, but we stop it, as you probably would do in the cicada. So, think something like so. And we rewind into the gancho. She takes a forward step, I place my feet together. I lead her into another forward step, we can re-embrace, and continue the dance. [music]

How to Do a Dumbbell Row | Back Workout

And today I'm going to show you how to do a dumbbell row on the bench. Alright? Obviously that's going to be a one arm dumbbell row and it's going to target our lats, our rear delts, our rhomboids, our biceps, our forearms, so tons of muscles in this. And this is what I would call a prime exercise. So these are one of the exercises that if you're really looking to add some strength or size to your lats, these are going to be one of the ones that you're going to definitely go to. Basically you're able to lift the most amount of weight and you're going to be in a very stable position. Okay? So this is what it's going to look like. Come along. We're going to get one knee on the bench, other leg out to the side. The reason that I like to do that is I like to put your abdominals over the floor. A lot of people do it differently where they are staggering their leg this way and you're going to put more tension on your lower back. So my version is going to be a lot safer. It may be harder to do but a lot safer and more effective. Okay? Leg out to the side, stomach over the floor and we're going to grab a hold of this dumbbell. Now, the first thing you want to think about when you grab the dumbbell is let's use your hand as a hook. Instead of thinking of squeezing that dumbbell and putting everything into your bicep and your forearm, we're going to use it as a hook and think of lifting our elbow back. Alright? So that's a very important key to really isolate that lat muscle. We're going to grab a hold, slowly lift, one. Allow yourself to extend down, back again, allow yourself to go step down. Now, this is the dumbbell row. The one mistake a lot of people make is using their legs. Okay? Now, if you're using your legs then what you're effectively doing is making that weight lighter. So majority of the time when you see people lifting a weight that's too heavy for them, they're using their legs. So if you see this on your extension, up, that weight is too heavy for you, okay? We need to lock those legs in, your back's going to be stable, and you're going to allow your shoulder to drop maybe that is the only thing that'll happen. Contract and pull but the legs don't move. Alright guys? So remember, use the hands as a hook. It's going to be so effective. This is an excellent exercise to really target those back muscles. This is going to be one of the top three that I do. I love dumbbell rows, I do them all the time and I think you should too.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1DIxHwS Watch more MMA Fighting Techniques videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501828-How-to-Do-Basic-Strike-Combinations-MMA-Fighting Chris: Now that you've got some basic strikes, let's go though some basic combinations that you can throw in a fight or for drills or for sparring. So I have Rene here again as my demo partner. First basic combinations I like to throw are always, you know, punch combinations. You've got jab, you've got cross, but again you always have to be ready off of that cross to sprawl especially when you come in for a take down. So again, I like to use, or set up with, the hands especially if I'm going to be setting up for kicks. So maybe I'd like to jab, cross and then an inside leg kick. Okay? Obviously you've got the jab, cross and then you have the outside leg kick. Those are basic combinations. If I throw a jab, cross and I fire that knee, I have to be ready to sprawl because you're going to be coming in for that take down. Alright? So again, basic combinations. Jab, cross, inside leg kick. Jab, cross, outside leg kick. Or, the jab, cross, follow up with the knee. But remember, be ready to sprawl. It's an MMA fight. He's going to come in for that take down. Alright? Rene: Now, the basic combinations, it depends what you want. If you just want to stay and stand up striking that's great, but some of you want to come in to shoot. So some good combination shoot is double-jab. For a single if you're southpaw, double-jab here, stepping in on your jab. Step in on your jab. And you hit the double. Okay? Another one could be a front hand technique. Switch your feet please. Alright? Could be jab, hook, shoot. So you want to punch off your front hand to cover the distance for your shots.

This is the group of techniques that deals with how to take a knife away from a partner. So a tanto, being the smallest weapon that we use, also creates a fair amount of danger because your partner's going to be very close with that weapon. So a lot of the techniques involved in tanto dori tend to be a little more aggressive in order to completely diffuse the situation. So if we start with a tanto. Again, the very basic initial starting point for a lot of these attacks is going to be ski. So again we're looking at a punch or a stab directly to the stomach. Alright. And again, as in any Aikido technique, the most important thing for me is to get offline and away from the initial attack. We've seen korogashi before, or wrist-twist without the weapon, and this can be directly applied to tanto tori. The way that this would differ a little bit from open-hand techniques is because my partner has a knife. As the strike comes in I can use that weapon both to influence his movement, and I also need to be aware that I want to keep the weapon away from my partner. I'm not going to sit down to create the pin in this situation. I want to stay standing and remain with the weapon. Another variation we see a lot, ijiki mai, or another one of the elbow techniques and this is specifically designed to make sure that your partner's weapon hand is immobilized. So this is a point where you want to apply subtle and constant pressure. Try not to break the arm but you want to apply the pressure until your partner needs to drop the weapon and then you can get rid of your partner. Again, from the other side. Again, control the weapon, open the space up directly underneath against the elbow, take your wrist, and squeeze. Alright. You also see a fair amount of chokes, and immobilizations from this point. Lift. Before we went under the elbow, this time we're going to continue all the way around, and wrap the neck up. In order to remove the knife we're going to step back and drop on the closest knee, and apply pressure to the elbow against my knee that's up until your partner drops the knife. Alright. One other komichi mai technique that you'll see quite often. To the side, all the way around, and take the Gi from the other side, and separate. Again, down the closest knee, pressure on the elbow. So one more time. So tanto tori. These are just some of the most common techniques you'll see against a knife and how to remove it from your partner, or several others, which generally pertain to open-hand techniques. But these are some basic beginning points on tanto tori.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1DIxHwS Watch more MMA Fighting Techniques videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501829-2-Block-Basics-MMA-Fighting Let's go over some blocking basics. So obviously blocking for punches. I have Chad here who's going to help demo. So again, we're working from a righty against righty stance. So from your basic stance, maybe if a wide right hand comes in I want to cover. Alright, when I cover, I always want to try to think of protecting the whole side of my head. So he throws that wide right hand, alright, I want to wrap the head up and I want to put the bicep right to my temple. And I want to keep the elbow down the center because if it's a straight right hand and I leave that elbow out I can still eat the punch. So just to protect against the straight, I can cover, and against the wide right hand, I can cover. Okay? Same thing with the hook. If that hook comes in, alright, I want to wrap up the head. This time I'm just going to pivot a little. Alright? Wrap the head up. Remember, don't leave this open because that punch can still sneak through. I want to tighten up the guard as much as I can, or the cover, and as he throws it I want to wrap the head up. So again, against the wide right hand, alright, I'm going to cover. Even against the straight right hand, I'm going to use that cover. When the hook comes in, same concept, wrap the head up. Okay? So maybe we'll go a little faster. We'll go a left hook, a wide right hand. He'll throw the left hook, wide right hand combination, and when he throws it I just want to wrap the head up and then adjust, keeping my feet based out and my feet under me. I don't want to move my feet too much. I always want to have a good base, especially if I'm defending. So Chad will throw a little faster. Alright? And I wrap up. Again, wrap the head up and always, for defense, focus on your partner's or your opponent's center body. Try not to watch his hands. I want to watch the movements coming from the chest. Okay? Make sure you're wrapping the head up. And that's your basic covering technique for wide punches.

How to Do the Charleston Step | Swing Dance

Watch more How to Swing Dance videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507278-How-to-Do-the-Charleston-Step-Swing-Dance The Charleston step -- One of the key elements to understanding swing. Most of us think of Charleston as this little back and forth, kind of underneath us, Charleston step. It's similar to that for swing dancing, but it gets a little bit more athletic. We still do want to think that what's going to happen is, I'm going to have one foot go back. We'll do it with our left, and then we'll do it with our right. Our left goes back, back, and then our right goes forward, forward and then back, back. So that goes back, forward, forward, back, back, forward, forward, back. You could start that with your right foot back as well. So that goes back, forward, forward, back, back, forward, forward, back. That's kind of a basic Charleston step. We're going to show you how we do it in swing dancing. In swing dancing, the Charleston has a little bit more of a kick and athleticism to it. What you are going to do here is to go back, back, like a rock step. You go back. You are going to kick forward, then step. Kick forward, and, as you kick forward, kind of pull that knee up and reach it back to take the step. Then it starts over: back, kick, up, and down; back, kick, up, and down. The timing for that is: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. With your right foot: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two. Now let's try the Charleston step to music, [music playing] starting with your left foot. Now let's start with the right.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1MXo0IZ Watch more How to Do Shaolin Kung Fu videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507145-5-Basic-Staff-Techniques-Shaolin-Kung-Fu Hi, I'm Steve Romain. Welcome to my video on shaolin staff basics. Today I'll be demonstrating some of the fundamental techniques in order to help you understand how to use your staff a little better. We'll start with overhead swings. To begin with, we'll start from our forwards stance. And this is a great way to train your stance and your weapon all at the same time. From here, you're going to bring your staff over your shoulder. Place your left hand on top of your right. You're going to begin by swinging the staff out to the side, bringing it behind you. As you bring it behind you, you want to tilt so that the staff should continue to flow past you, bringing it around so that it tucks underneath the arm, pivoting into your forwards stance, and then thrusting the palm out. One more time, one, two, three, four, five. And then from, here, you just want to take the staff out, bring it around, and swing it like a baseball stick. And then it just starts over again. So, now I'll demonstrate full speed. The next basic technique is what we call forward figure 8. From here, you're going to have your right hand firmly on the stick. Left hand is going to grasp with two fingers, and you use your thumb to guide it. As you bring your stick forward, bring it from side to side. You want the stick to travel as close to your body as possible. To reverse figure 8, for this one, you're going to have your right hand on the stick, and then place your left hand underneath. You're going to start by swinging behind you, and then bringing it up. Now, it's really important to keep your elbows high. Because the ceiling here isn't that high, I'm going to go a little bit lower. You want to use your body with the stick. Now we're going to take a look at the uppercut and the chop. Again, we're going to bring the stick over the head, on to the shoulders. We're going to do a change step, and release the staff at a 45 degree angle. Let it rest on your left shoulder. Bring it down, letting it snap underneath your arm. You can visualize coming up underneath somebody's head, and then striking back down on the back of their head. Again, up, and then, down. Full speed. And you'll practice these techniques with a lot of repetition, so you can get really good at them.

I'm Sifu Romane and this is Shaolin fighting tips. The first tip that I can give you on fighting is whoever controls the distance controls the fight. This is really important to understand. Basic, basic concept. If he's a strong puncher, I can use my foot to keep him away from me. If he's a strong kicker, I obviously need to come inside where I can use my hand skills. If he's a strong puncher, the other thing I can do is come inside the grappling. That will also eliminate his punches, as well. Another fight tip that we use for Kung Fu in particular is using our contact reflexes. This is important because this range is what we call immobilization range, and it's one of the things that makes Kung Fu unique. So as soon as we make contact, we know exactly where he is. You don't even necessarily see him to know what to do. The other thing is, if I come inside here, I can automatically pin his arms against his body, and that's what we mean by using your contact reflexes. I'm Sifu Romane, and these are some Shaolin fighting tips.

Compressed Air vs. CO2 | Paintball
 
01:52
Watch more How to Play Paintball videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/497351-Compressed-Air-vs-CO2-Paintball My name is Mike Peverill. I'm here at Pev's Paintball Park in Aldie, Virginia. I've been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I've played professional paintball with numerous pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is www.pevs.com. Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime. This is a CO2 tank. CO2's been around since the beginning of paintball. That was the first type of gas that was used to propel the paintball gun. Then it was followed by compressed air. Compressed air is basically natural breathing air, like in a scuba diving compressor, as opposed to CO2, which is carbon dioxide. The difference is, you know, CO2 is an unstable gas. What happens is as it gets warmer and gets hot, it goes to a liquid, I mean a gas form, which can cause an increased spike in what's gonna happen in pressure. As opposed to being in liquid, I mean, you know, which is a different velocity. So, so this was always changing. Compressed air is not changing. So what happens, if you want a paintball gun to be efficient, and get more shots per tank, and not have to fill up as often, you want compressed air. Plus compressed air, the bottle itself, fiberglass, weighs half the weight of this metal heavy CO2 gas filled container. So I mean, a big difference. Imagine being on the paintball field for 4 hours, 5 hours, playing all day long. You wanna carry the gun that's gonna be the lightest, and you're gonna want compressed air. Plus, you don't wanna have to come back and refill as much. Now, CO2 tank, that's the cheaper way to go for your gun. It costs less to buy the tank. This may cost more, but in the long run, it's gonna pay for itself numerous times. Because more shots per tank, better gas efficiency, better accuracy. So that, you know, CO2, every third or fourth ball you shoot, the velocity's gonna drop, 'cause you're shooting so fast, it won't reach your target, it's wasting your paintballs. This one is always gonna be on target, same velocity all the time.

First, there's a couple of ways to pull out the side kick. First, I'm going to demonstrate the basic side kick. I'm going to stay in a fighting stance. I'm going to first bring my knees up, pivot, and snap out with my bottom of my foot while twisting your hip, like this, and bringing it back. One more time. Knees up. And do the side kick. Now I have my partner with me. He's holding the shield target this time. And make sure it's about body level. And I'm going to stand in a fighting stance. Now there's a couple of ways to pull out the side kick. There's a regular side kick and also there's a skipping side kick or a hop side kick. So what we're going to do is practice our regular side kick. I'm going to bring my knees up slowly, and boom, try to kick the center of the target. And you can drop it down or bring it back. So I'm going to show a fast demonstration. One more time. Now the second side kick we can do is a hop step or skipping side kick. A skipping side kick, what you need to do is bring your back leg and skip forward while you raise your front leg up and throw a side kick. This way. So again, I'd like to show you on this side. My partner's holding it in the body section. Skip. This way. One more time. And that's how we do a side kick.

But what is Sacada? Sacada is a displacement of the foot so in other words i take her place. Sacad literally means to take out. Now you take her with embrase and now we are going to go all the way accross. I know that my right leg is free, so as i leed i am gonna place my foot right next to her so we are gonna sacada that foot. Now we are gonna Sacada the side foot and finally we are gonna sacada her front foot. After this we are gonna conclude with the forward step and then we can walk. So the followers in the sacada we are just doing a great wine or a heto. We are gonna go forward while the leader displaces while we turn into a three leg then you go side here you are gonna follow your partners movement, so that he can displace your feet. Make sure that your connection stays strong and are always following your partners chest as you go around. To lead a Sacada its only that i am taking her place so i don't necessarily have to push her out with my foot. Its a misconception to do that. What we do id once i place my foot keep on leading so that we can move she can move out of my way its almost like opening the door for a sec from here then we do that each time in the take out the forward step it feels like there is going to be some contact but you are not looking for that contact. So in a way this is a way to if you work. so the lead the follower will follow the lead because the leader is just opening his chest so that will create the circular motion to keep him going around him. Wright you don't have to lead each one individually just give general lead and you know through practice that's what the step to you know that is in this case front side and back. So you are sacada in the training class.

Before we worry about our hands and what to grab and what techniques we're trying to do, before we can do any of that, we have to learn how to get off line and how to move our body, our hips and our legs, before you worry about the hands. So in the very beginning, I'm going to use hanmi, which is a very thin stance in Aikido, it's not a terribly wide stance, both heels are almost on the same line, take a comfortable step back, one of the first things that you'll see is irimi, which literally means to enter, and basically just looks like a step forward. So irimi one step forward, irimi step forward. So in Aikido you generally consider the movement to be very circular, which is true, your hips are moving in a circle, but the feet are moving on a very linear fashion, so irimi, irimi. The next set of tai sabaki or body movement that we're gonna see is tenkan. Tenkan, basic hanmi, pivot the hips and step straight back, pivot the hips and step straight back. Again like in irimi this is a very linear foot movement, they move backwards on a line, not a large circle. So we're keeping our feet close together, in a linear form. The other side, pivot step back, tenkan, tenkan, tenkan. So the next series or set of tai sabaki that we use quite often is kaiten, and kaiten is literally just a pivot. So just going to turn my hips, the feet stay relatively close to where they began. Kaiten, kaiten, kaiten. So it's not a terribly complicated group of movements, we've got three basic steps irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So with a partner, you can generally see how a lot of the techniques look a little confusing, shomen uchi, this is a lot of movement. When you break it down, irimi, tenkan, kaiten, kaiten, irimi. So just using those three steps that we've learned, we can execute larger techniques. Shomen uchi, irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So right now ikkyo ura, irimi, tenkan, irimi, tenkan, kaiten, irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So many of the techniques that we do in Aikido look very complicated, but once you get the basic steps down and figure out how to arrange them in various orders, the Aikido techniques become much more simplistic. Tai sabaki, basic body movement.

You will have done a back bend, like done your Ross in a bow. You have done a standing, balancing posture like Tree Pose, and then, finally, you're ready to put all of those things together, into this pose, into Dancer's Pose. What you want to do, is come onto your right foot, point the left toes, and just feel the weight shift over onto that side. With your thumb up, you're going to reach behind. With your thumb down, you're going to torque the shoulder, and internally rotate. You want to keep the shoulder internally rotate. You want to keep the shoulder externally rotated. Point the toe. Grab for the big toe side, and then resqueeze your knees back together. What that's going to do is get you back to center, and also give you the information of where your mid-line is, which will help you balance. From there, all fingers, even my thumb, are wrapping around the foot. This finger is going to reach forward, and it's like I'm pressing down into like a counter top, but pointing to my horizon line. The gaze is directly over this middle finger, nice and soft, and as I start to pitch forward, and hinge at the hips, both hips stay pointing down towards the ground, so this hip isn't open off to the side. They stay pointed towards the ground. I keep reaching towards my horizon line, pointing through the toes, reaching, and I kick back, and I reach. And I kick back, and I reach. I kick back, and I reach. The more you go for it, the more you actually reach, reach, reach. It allows you to kick, to come out. I'm squeezing my knees back together, back together, back together, and then, I release the foot down, to come out of that balance. Just to swing a leg out, it's just too much for the body to try to balance. So, think about bringing those knees in closer together, and then finally releasing yourself to the floor. That is Dancer's Pose.

Neiman, front and center right there. We're going to start with the top down. First, we're going to start with the temple shot. Turn your head left, Neiman. Right here is a knockout punch. It's a great way to knock out your opponent. And then, stay away from the forehead. The forehead is the strongest part of the skull. We want to work in this area from the eyes down. All that's good stuff. You've got the nose. You've got the mouth. Dental bills are expensive. That's a great place to land your shot. And if you catch the chin that's the sweet spot. It's the sweet spot because it snaps your head back. That's surely a knockout. All right. Also, you have the jaw bone on the left side and the right side. Right here, below the eyes, you have the orbital bone. A strong enough punch will break the orbital bone. Also, when I'm looking at my opponent, right beneath the sternum I've got the solar plexus. So any shot delivered right in there will knock the wind right out of your opponent. It's important that if you take a shot to the gut to use some muscle tension and exhale on the point of impact. It'll save you from getting knocked down or the breath knocked out of you. My favorite shot, of all shots to the body, is the liver shot. The liver shot's a devastating shot especially when you drop your body and you're able to send your shot just below the chest cavity up 45 degrees and send your shot all the way up and through to the back of the spine. You're surely going to knock down your opponent with that one.

Watch more How to Do Yoga videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501347-How-to-Do-an-Upward-Facing-Dog-Yoga Urdhva mukha svanasana, upward facing dog. I'll start in a downward facing dog, take you through plank, lower down chaturanga dandasana, and then come into upward facing dog and I'll hit all the little places in between. Okay? So, adho mukha, downward facing dog begins to come here. And then you're going to peel forward into your high plank pose. Exhale to lower you down chaturanga and then lean into one foot. Set a foot onto the floor. Point for the ankle, but spread the toes so you use the thigh bones. And the thigh bones will lift away from the floor. Next, I'm going to take my heart forward. Wrap the shoulder blades back. And arms can be itty bitty bend. A little bend in the elbows so you can transfer softness into the heart to come out one toe or both toes. It doesn't matter. One's not cheating. It's just your preference. And then back through downward facing dog. So that's the overall movement. Now let's talk about some specifics. Okay? So, as you come to high plank pose, I want you to think about melting between your shoulder blades. So you can see right now that my shoulder blades are on my sides. What I want to be able to find is that my shoulder blades come closer together, but my belly has to suck in like crazy in order to keep it from not doing that. Right? So I'm going to melt the shoulder blades separate from my belly. So my belly is going to reach in. As I lower down, I'm just continuing to melt those shoulder blades closer and closer together. And then as I come forward for upward facing dog, my shoulders blades just stay where they are. And I roll back to downward facing dog. So I literally think about my shoulder blades being those two little hands assisting down and then helping lift up here. And then taking back in a downward facing dog. So it might be a little helpful tip for you for urdhva mukha svanasana, upward facing dog.

Its just going to come from ochos. So as I take a side step my partner is going to lead an ocho and give me a whipping sensation at the end. One more time. Side. He's going to send and ocho and whip me back around. So there is a opposition happening in the lead which creates this whipping sensation. He can also do it to the other side. Knees together. Side, knees together, opposition in the torso. I'm going to use my arms pressing against my leader's back to have this whipping sensation. Now Diego will teach us the lead. Diego: This is a type of step that we don't do much but lead. It's very important that we focus our energy on that. We go side, when I place my weight on this leg I send the leg back to her and then immediately bring it back. That brings the whipping action. So it looks like this. Side bum bah. Your going to go, side the first bam sense as if it was going to be an ocho and immediately I bring it around. Bam bum bah. Like so, side move, move with her. A: So followers make sure you still have that opposition with your upper body. As my partner takes me side, he'll turn me, and here is the opposition because he's bringing back my body before my legs, creating the Boleo. Diego: Side, bum bah. [music]

The squat is one of those awesome, full body exercises that targets your legs, your abdominals, even your upper body muscles, and I'm going to show you how to do it. Initially, what we're looking for is to get on the bar and get this bar on our traps, right around here, exact position. Now, we're going to press up. Now, slow and controlled, we're going to lower that weight down, and our initial motion should be butt, back, and sit, like we're sitting in a chair. Squat, back, pause, up. All right? Squat, back, pause at the bottom, and up. One more time. Slow on the way down. Squat, back, pause, and up. Let me show you from the side because there's some very important things that we need to do in the squat. Initially, our body position needs to be here. First motion is back. It's never this. That's what a lot of people do in a squat, and they do it wrong because they put their weight on their toes. It goes into their knees. What we want you to do is sit back, stand on your heels, butt back, like you're sitting on a chair. Squat, back, pause, slowly up. Squat, back, pause, slowly up. That is the proper way to do a squat. Now, get out there, challenge yourself, again guys, use a weight that you can definitely control. The rep range you want to be in is about 12. Use a weight you can control, get out there, be safe, and have a good time.

So to do a bicycle crunch, you could do them at a boot camp, in the grass, you could do them at home on a mat. You’re just going to come onto your back and I like to start by bring both knees up off the floor and making sure that before you even begin that you’re pulling the abdominal muscles in. So that when you breathe in naturally, the belly expands, on the exhale, the abdominal muscles draw inward. So that’s what you want to focus on, to engage the deep layer, the transverse abdominis, that kind of runs across your body like a belt. So just think of it as cinching a belt tightly around your waist. Then you want to engage the superficial layer, the rectus abdominis, aka, your six pack. So that muscle group is the muscle that flexes your spine. So drawing your belly in and then flexing your spine, and starting to engage the superficial layer. So now you’re firing up your entire core then you’re going to take the hands behind the head, open up the elbows. I’d like to have you think that you’re not able to see your elbows in your periphery. So instead of getting like this and potentially pulling on your head and stressing out the sternocleidomastoid and all those other muscles in your neck. Just keep it relaxed, open up, keep the heart open, one leg goes in as the other leg goes out. So this is the mechanics of the lower body in the bicycle crunch. The more you extend your leg, the more you’re going to fire up your quad muscle. If I keep my leg slack, I’m not getting as much recruitment of the quad. So if you can, fully extend energy all the way out through the legs. And then to really get the obliquus; the muscles of the abdominals. Rotate your body, you need to add in the rotation, so, you’re doing, opposite elbow to the knee, and again, try to keep your shoulder blades up off the matt if you really want to fire up the rectus abdominis at the same time.

So I'm going to go over how to do a diamond pushup, also known as a triangle pushup. Now this pushup is a variation of regular pushups with your where your hands literally form a diamond. Now, the whole point of this is because it puts a whole lot more focus on your triceps. It makes a great triceps exercise, great for your arms for size, for strength. Your triceps take up two thirds of your arm, so to build up a meaty tricep really makes your arm that much bigger. A lot of guys think it's just bicep, but when you have got big triceps you got big arms. So to properly do this, just like any other pushup. Your core is going to be very involved because you got to keep your body up. You got to keep your back straight. Setting up, you want your hands to be directly below your face, right under your chin. And when you come down, you're going to drop your chest into your hands and come back up so that your chin is right over your thumbs again. Now, to do this you want to make sure that you keep your elbows in, as opposed to flair them out. Putting them in puts a lot more focus on your triceps so you get a lot more out of it that way. Now, there's a lot of that, with body weight exercises a lot of guys don't realize how tough body weight exercises can be. Society kind of trained us to go straight to a machine or to a bench. But body weight exercises are killer, especially for bigger guys. This takes a lot out of me. So you're going to sit up, hands in diamond or triangle form, on your toes, body is straight, core is tight. Drop down, elbows in, you don't have to come all the way down, so you don't want to drop to the floor but you want to stay right here and push back up. You don't want to sag your hips, okay? That's cheating. Keep everything up, down, lock. Any time you work against gravity you're going to breathe out. Inhale, exhale. Now with this, you're going to feel a lot in the center of your chest and in your triceps. But again, it's surprisingly tough to do bodyweight exercises. I love them. I make them a primary part of my workout. Start out with it or end with it. Either way you're going to get great results from it. And that's the diamond or triangle pushup.

All right guys. Now, he's locked the arm for the arm bar, but a lot of times he'll clasp his hands together, and this is the clutch. And breaking the clutch is very hard, unless you know what to do. I'm going to give you four quick variations. The easiest one. Okay. So I have the arm bar. Okay. He's locking his legs like this. This is the situation. There's a big space here. The first thing I'll do is cross my feet, so now he can't pull his hand down, okay? Cross my feet. Pull your hand down. He can't. Not so much. I climb up his arm, walking up this way. One, two, three, I grab my shoulder. Preferably I want to end up, if I'm falling this way, here, but honestly it doesn't really matter. It's just easier for you beginners to finish up with your bicep hitting his wrist. Grab his wrist, fall to the side, and rotate out. That's number one. Number two. Okay. He has a little space, but he's pulling this way, and it's hard to get in. You slide your foot through. You open your leg, and you grab his head. Straighten your leg, fall a little, chop it, lock it, squeeze, and finish. You have the triangle, and you have the arm bar. The next one, here. He clamps down, you missed it. He clamps down here. You take your leg, and bring it over. You cross your feet, clasp your hands, and pull. Okay. It's a compression lock. Pull this way. One, two, three. The last one, and the coolest one. Okay. He comes here. He's very, very tight. Okay. I switch my hands. Take this hand, and put it here. I'm going to spin all the way up to S-mount. To this mount here. Right here. My knee goes against his ear, and my foot goes against his head. This comes here. Now, I'm not going to fall on my back to finish the arm bar, because he might escape. I'm going to put my shin on his face, arch my hips, and tap. If he doesn't tap, I'm going to fall this way, and do that rolling arm bar again, because it gives me that maximum control. Okay, one more time. Those are four finishes to the arm bar.

This is the part we know I love the most, and these are the tricks. Alright? I'm going to show you the proper way to spin a ball on your finger. Okay? Now, in order to spin a ball on your finger, the first thing you're going to need are some fingers. Alright? Now, normally I go with my strong hand, which for me is my right hand, and I want to use my pointing finger. Alright? Now, I take my pointing finger, and the object here is to balance the ball on my finger. All right, balance the ball on my finger. Now, how are we going to do that? Alright? Now science has this thing, you know you can explain it scientifically, but the first thing you want to do is, you want to make sure you get a nice spin on the ball. So first thing you've got to practice is how to spin the ball. Watch me. All I want to do is practice getting a nice spin on the ball. Now, as you become better, you want to try and get your finger underneath the ball. Try to time it to get your finger underneath the ball. Get a nice spin underneath the ball. Now, if your spin is weak, you're not going to be able to balance that ball on your finger. So the first thing you've got to do, practice getting the spin on the ball, on your finger. Now for me, I like to use one hand. Get a nice spin. Put the ball on my finger. Some people, they use two hands. Get a nice spin. Put the ball on their finger. So you want to make sure, like I said, work on your spin, then after that it's all about balance, balance, balance. And that is how you spin the ball on your finger.

How to Have Proper Running Form | Running
 
03:41
Watch more How to Run videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506904-How-to-Have-Proper-Running-Form-Running So we talk about correct running form. That word can really be thrown around, I'm not sure there really is correct running form, but there is running form that could make your run a lot more comfortable. Starting from head to toe, when you're running, you want to keep your chin down a little bit, you almost want to fell like you're, there's a thread at the top of your head, pulling you up. You don't want your chin too down, because you'll actually close off your airway a little bit. And you don't want your chin too far up, because you're not really sure where all that energy's going, and you can feel that tension in your neck start to happen when you do raise your chin a little bit. So try to keep your head level a little bit. Notice where you're holding tension. Slowly, through a long run, you can start to feel your shoulders creep up a little bit, and you can feel that tension in your shoulders and your neck. So if you relax a little bit, it can also help you reduce the amount of energy that you're using for your run. Now what you want to do with your arms, hold your elbows at about a ninety degree angle, and hold a very small fist, almost having your fingertips just touching the palm of your hand, and just relax your hands. And throughout your run, when you start to feel tension building up, just shake your arms out a little bit and relax your shoulder. Hold your torso up, straight. Engage your core so that you're holding up a good posture when you're moving forward. Don't lean forward, at your waist, just kind of gradually from your ankles all the way up to your shoulders, lean forward a little bit. So with your feet, when you're landing on the ground, you want to land on the ground right in the midfoot to the balls of your feet. Sometimes when you land on your heels, you're actually landing too far ahead of your body, so what happens is when your bodyweight hits the ground, you're creating this shock that's going all the way up through your ankles, your knees, and your hips. Again, over time that can cause a lot of discomfort and possibly an injury. So again, try to think about having your foot land right underneath your bodyweight, and with your hips, make sure your hips are forward, and make sure your hips are stable. One great thing about doing core exercises for running is that it keeps your entire core area stable while you're running. Sometimes when you're out running you might see people whose hips dip a little bit with each run. That can also cause injury down the road, so try to keep those stable, keep your hips stable, keep your hips pointed down, but you also don't want them pointed up too much. Just go in the direction that you're running. And when you're running and swinging your arms, swinging your arms forward but being careful not to swing your arms across your midline. What that does is that it almost throws off your balance a little bit. Keep your arms moving forward and again, keep your arms relaxed, keep your hands relaxed, but again try not to go across your midline too much. Just keep them back and forth. Let your arms do what they want to do, but keep them controlled just a little bit. Just try to stay in tune with your body, and just check in every once in a while and notice where you're holding tension. Starting a running program can be hard enough as it is, but when you start to notice how much tension you're holding it can take more energy away then you actually realize, and as you start to build up in your runs, maybe working towards that ten mile race, or working towards that half marathon, it can deplete a lot of energy that you're working so hard to get through the race for. Just try to relax, try to relax and have fun.

How to Do an Eagle Pose (Garudasana) | Yoga
 
02:04
Watch more How to Do Yoga videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501356-How-to-Do-an-Eagle-Pose-Garudasana-Yoga I come into Garudasana eagle pose, and the beginning of this is Utkatasana chair pose. So we can just layer on later. So first thing we're going to start is a chair pose. Bend the knees. Reach your arms up and overhead. Bring your hands down to your thighs, and internally rotate the thigh muscles, the flesh, back and through the legs. Which will allow you to have a softer groin. So you can actually use the tailbone forward to get the belly in the play. Heart can lift up. Then you can reach up and overhead. So that's the elements of a chair pose. Next we're going to add eagle pose to that. So you reach your arms out to the side. Open up the chest. Exhale. Take your right arm underneath, wrap up the elbows, and then wrap up the wrist. If that's not happening, just hold onto your shoulders. If that's the second wrap not happening, hold onto your shoulders. Otherwise, when you bring your hands here, work your elbows down and your forearms away from your face. You'll feel a strong internal rotation of the shoulder. It should feel good. So here you're going to find a little chair pose in the legs. Internally rotating the thighs. Curling the tailbone forward. Put all the weight into your left foot. Come onto the tippy toes of the right foot. Squeeze the knee in towards the chest. The higher you get the knee in towards the chest, the easier it's going to be to wrap. And then once you're here you can use your toes onto the floor, or even onto a block. That's there. Or you can wrap a second time. So sit down, wrapping back, and then pretend that you have a thumb in this hip crease pulling this hip crease back. So you're there. Use the abdominals to pull this hip crease back. And then just sit down low. Another variation of this posture is to take a sleeping eagle. So you're going to bow over the legs, and come down. Maybe you'll touch the first knee, and maybe you can touch the second knee. To unwind this posture slowly with your gaze, walk yourself up. And then undo the arms. Undo the legs. Open up the hands. That's eagle.

You are going to do this type of figure which is the Lapiz once as you lead her side and forward. Once you stop her there you cross her around and you can continue dancing. Let us try it from a different perspective. We have side, forward, Lapiz, lead her around Parada, she crosses over and then the step is finished. Let us take a look at it with our partner. Female: So for the follower we are just going to do the Media Luna and follow our partners. Male: Side, forward. Start the Lapiz as you lead around, and Parada your leg, like so. Like a regular Parada you lead her to go across as you transfer your weight. Let us take another look. Side, forward, around to a Parada, forward step, transfer your weight. Let us take it from a side step; and, side, forward, Lapiz as she does maybe a Luna into a Parada, she crosses over, you change her weight. The coordination happens like so; you begin forward, side, she goes side, you bring your feet together to give space for the forward step and then you Parada, foot like so. Female: And I will acknowledge his foot in a sandwich. Male: She crosses over, there we go. [Music plays]

To start, we're going to turn sideways. We're going to pick one leg up. As you put this leg down you're going to take your bottom leg and push it back so that you get into a lunge. From here we're going to take the back leg and pick it up hopping our front leg to the center, and then take the top leg stepping it down pushing our back leg back. You're going to repeat this motion, and each time you hop you want to make sure that you don't hop up, but rather you hop just enough so that you can slide your foot back. It's really more of a slide than it is a jump. You want to think of staying low to the ground. It also helps if you have a bounce in your body. You don't want to be too stiff, so remember to keep relaxed. Let's try it a little bit faster. You're going to start with your leg up, and go back, up, back, up, back, up. It's also important that when you push your leg back you straighten your leg out so that you get a nice line here. You don't want to have your legs like jello and sloppy. You do want to really push through that back heel so that this is a really strong move. When we go to speed it up you're going to need to be fast on your feet, so remember to stay on your toes and stay really light. Let's try it with the music. We're going to start slow, half time. By going on the beat you want to go down, down, down, down, down, down. Remember, when our feet go down we want our body to accent up. So, you're going to start by taking this leg down and rocking back. We go back, back, back. And that's how you do the running man.

Male: Vocara means to spill, so we're going to get our partners to spill their weight on us. Generally you can do this in a big step, but we recommend that it's done in a small amount. So let's start with the side step, normally we step in the side step like so, but for the vocara we're going to step away from our partners so that they can spill their weight on us like so. A small step, if you take a little bigger step it's too much for the ladies, their back is going to kill them, we don't want that, it kills the chemistry. So just a sleight step back, to get that initiation, as you get that you're going to give a circular feeling to cross as you step. The lead for the leader is side, around and goes, think of stirring something, like stirring a soup for instance, wha, pa, OK? Female: So you really, really want to pretend like you're drawing a figure on the floor with your leg. And that will be portrayed through your upper body, so the purpose is to bring my left leg around into a cross off axis. For followers make sure that you're embrace is really intact. And what you want to do is you don't want to collapse your back in the embrace, keeping that technique of spine straight, it's like doing a plank pose in yoga, you're going to slightly do a small push up, and the flexion will happen in your ankles, and as he takes you forward you let that leg loose from the hip joint. So as he takes me to the side I'm already slightly off axis and he brings my leg around. It's really important that you keep your leg loose from the hip joint, so then you can create a nice circular move. Male: Yes. Leaders make sure that you do not do this with the arm again, you move the torso as a whole piece. Pa, wha, boom. Not pa, wha. Let's try it. [pause] Notice that I'm arranging my footwork again. From here I make sure that she gets back in her place, and then we continue. Female: So ladies, help your partner and bring your body back to axis. Don't stay expecting him to hold onto you. So as he steps closer to your axis bring your whole spine upright. Male: Adjusting your feet is good in tango, you need to be comfortable, always think comfortable. As a leader this is your responsibility as well as a follower. And there you have it.

I always begin with just holding my own hands and placing them in my lap, just like this, and then I begin with my relaxation techniques. So, I'll clasp my fingers and I just begin to roll around here. And you can hear all the popping and the clicking and the overuse of my hands. And from there, we could also just pull out here, so it's just from the base of the finger and I'm pulling out. You could also do some dorsiflexion or some palm reflexion and the feet it would be planter flexion, in both directions, and you could also do a little bit from side to side, inversion and eversion. Both sides, of course. And then you can do some reflexology. You can do some thumb walking, you could thumb walk, and we'll start with the spinal reflex. So from here, and we'll go all the way up to the tip so thumb walking, always securing the back side with your other fingers and you're walking up the spinal reflex and you go all the way up and although the spine ends there I'll go all the up to the brain reflex to the very tip. And then you could thumb walk the whole palmer aspect here. So you just thumb walk across you could do this in any direction, you could also do it this way; you're passing through the digestive reflexes and organ reflexes, kidney reflexes; up through here you have your adrenal gland reflex that can be very intense, a great thing to do on the train as you're going to work so you'll do the whole surface area all the way up and you'll go all the way up to the base of your fingers and then to do the fingers you'll create this kind of claw-like shape and then you'll also be using the thumb so you'll go to the base of the finger and you'll just rotate toward yourself and your finger is rotating that way. So you're coming toward yourself and you're rotating and you'll do that with all your fingers; this actually can go really fast once you get used to it. And you'll do that for both your hands and you could aso do a little bit of finger walking and thumb walking at the same time as you're going down each finger. And you could do that for all your fingers. And then lastly you don't want to ignore your dorsal aspect of your hand which is here and I do thumb walking so you can thumb walk between each metacarpal. And then I always end where I began so I'll do a couple more of those relaxation exercises, my rotations, you could do gentle rotations on each finger, and then I end with that solar plexus hold folded in my lap.

Watch more How to Give First Aid videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/504457-How-to-Treat-Someone-Having-a-Seizure-First-Aid-Training So what do you do if you find someone who is having a seizure? Number one, you want to stay calm. Assess the area, make sure there isn't anything that can cause injury to the person while they are having a seizure. You want to pay attention to the length of the seizure. You want to clear onlookers away, you don't want to clutter up the area with people looking and ogling and gawking, you have to be sensitive to the person who is having the seizure as well. Don't put anything in the person's mouth. I know that's an old wives tale to put a spoon or a wallet in their mouth. They will not swallow their tongue. You just need to ride out the seizure, you don't need to put anything in their mouth, it can cause more damage to stick something in there. You don't need to hold the person down, that can also cause more damage if you're fighting against them while they are shaking. Afterwords, you want to put them in the recovery position. Roll them over to their side, that way if they start to vomit, or any kind of saliva, or any kind of fluids come out it will fall and they won't choke. So once they've recovered you want to help them up, get them to a safe place, it may take them a while to fully get back to their normal self. If the seizure lasts for more than five minutes you want to call 911. If the person suffering the seizure is pregnant or diabetic you want to call 911. If it happens after a head blow, or after ingesting any poison or chemical you want to call 911. If the person has another seizure withing 24 hours call 911. If the person is epileptic and has seizures often they will wear a bracelet that says epileptic, this is part of their normal life. Be supportive, help them as much as you can and be reassuring.

We start from the open position, much like you would do for an under arm turn. We're going to go triple step, triple step, same step on the rock step that you would do for the under arm turn, rock step. She goes underneath in the first triple, triple step, but keep your left arm up, leaders. You want to keep your left hand up so you have space to go underneath. In the second triple you're going to get all the way through going to your left. Triple step. And from there you'll both rock step. Rock step. So, again, she goes under in the first triple. You go under in the second triple. So we go triple step, triple step, rock step, she's going to go underneath, triple step, keep that hand up, you go underneath, triple step, then you'll rock step, rock step. One of the points to this that you want to think about is what we call the cup and pin where the lady keeps a cup with her hand, you have two fingers in that cup like the pin. You don't want to use your thumb because there's a lot of rotation going on in the hand as I go underneath. If I'm grabbing and I go underneath, I start to twist the lady's wrist. There's a fine line between jujitsu and dancing. We don't want to hurt our ladies. So this goes up, no thumbs, right? That way the pin can just rotate in the cup as we go around. So let's try that again. We go triple step, triple step, rock step, she goes, triple step, I go, triple step, we face each other, rock step, you can pick up the hand or go ahead and do it again. We're going to try that to music. Now you have your she-he turns.

So, what is going to happen is that underarm turn with the hand change is going to end up getting us right to right. Off of the rock step, the ladies are going to pass by my left side. They are going to do that and I am going to create this curve over my head. So, as I go, rock step on this first triple step I kind of turn Nicola in front of me a little me. I think about that shoulder heading to the middle of my chest so that our shoulders work like a gear where one shoulder goes first then the other shoulder as opposed to the illusion that we are going shoulder to shoulder. So, as I rock step, rock step, she turns, triple step and we face each other, triple step. Again, you will see that I watch this shoulder. Rock step, I watch it, triple step, triple step because if we rolled shoulder to shoulder it is hard for me to get that arm up but if I let her turn first, so her shoulder is in the middle and my shoulder is going to the middle of her back as she passes, it works like a gear and gives us more space to be able to move. So, that goes, rock step, she goes first, triple step. Here is out barrel roll. Triple step, triple step, same free pass, back to close. So, we have triple step, triple step, lets to an underarm turn, change hands and the barrel. Triple step, triple step, rock step, triple step, triple step, free pass, triple step, triple step, rock step. So, you have an east coast swing barrel roll, we are going to do it to music. There you go! East coast swing with a barrel roll.

Dwayne: I wanna get better, man. Eric: That's what we're here for. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: We're here to get you better and work on some drills. So we got the crossover drills and Roadrunner's gonna display three crossover drills that you can work on at home. Now, obviously sometimes you gotta practice by yourself. Dwayne: Okay. Yeah, that's fine. Eric: You not gonna always have somebody in the gym there with you. You can even try this stuff at home, in the backyard, or in the basketball court by yourself. Dwayne: Really? That's good for me because I don't have any friends anyway. Eric: Well, that's a personal problem. But anyway, so, what we're gonna do is we're gonna let the Roadrunner display.. Dwayne: Okay.

Dwayne: Okay. Eric: You always gotta be prepared. Dwayne: Okay, nice. Eric: See that? Nice folding chair. Roadrunner, you're gonna attack the chair. Anytime you're doing drills, you wanna make sure you go right up on this chair like he's a defender and you wanna attack this guy. Attack him! See that? This is a crossover drill. Damn! Dwayne: Oh, okay. Eric: Crossover drill. Go back. Now, show him that one more time, other way. Crossover drill right at the cone. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: Now, this is called a killer cross.

Eric: [indecipherable 01:21] by Tim Hardaway. Dwayne: Okay, the one, two. Eric: That's the killer cross. Right at the chair. Dwayne: Oh, the U-tip. Eric: Yeah, yeah. The U-tip, two step. Dwayne: Two step. Yeah. Eric: This is an in and out cross. You go in and out. Take a minute out, and you exaggerate it in the crossover. Dwayne: Marvelous. Eric: Right at 'em. Bam! In and out. Hey Swoop, you try. Dwayne: No, I wanna see the AI cross. I like that one. Eric: Oh, you wanna go with the long, exaggerated Alex Iverson crossover. See that? Step with the foot. Dwayne: Oh, that's the one I know. That's the one I was expecting to see. Eric: Show it, show it, show it. I used to come down. It could get dangerous. Dwayne: Now I had to come down, you know what I'm saying? Eric: Yeah..Woah, I thought you was gonna trip over that chair. Dwayne: No, no, I got it! Cause I used it attacking. Eric: You attacked the chair. Dwayne: I attack it, get outta here. Eric: No, no, no, no. The chair didn't do anything to you. Dwayne: But you said attack it. Eric: No, no. Attack it with the dribble. Oh! With the dribble. Dwayne: I'm working on it. Eric: Now, that's three drills you can work on at home, in the backyard, or the basketball court by yourself. You don't have a chair? Dwayne: Yep. Eric: Use a cone! Dwayne: Yep. Eric: You don't have a cone? Use one of those sneakers on the wires. You know, old whatever. Dwayne: Whatever, whatever works. Eric: Yeah, use your Mom! Dwayne: My mom! How about my baby sister? Eric: No. You don't wanna attack your sister. Dwayne: Why not? She's gets on my nerves. Eric: Cause, anyway. That is the crossover drills that you can work on at home, displayed by the Roadrunner, easy and effective. Keep your head up. Go and attack the chair. Keep the ball under control. That's a rap.

How to Do a Crow Pose (Bakasana) | Yoga
 
02:24
Watch more How to Do Yoga videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501343-How-to-Do-a-Crow-Pose-Bakasana-Yoga This is our first arm balance, and it's call Bacasana, or often times called Crow Post. And how you're going to get into it. So have a block, or pillow, or a blanket or something the first time that you do it. It will give your mind a little ease, because it's going to be mostly a posture for your mind. Because your arms will be sort of trapped underneath you. And you'll have to lean forward to find balance in this pose. And sometimes that is the biggest hurdle to get over for this pose. It was for me. So just have something here to ease the mind. And then you're going to come into like a Malasana, or a squat. Okay? Or I call it kid playing in a sandbox. Right? You're going to get your knees and your hands down. What you want to be able to find is that the knees come really high under the triceps. Or maybe all the way into the armpit. That's ideal. So what you're going to want to do is lift up onto your toes. Set your hands shoulder distance apart. And just find that you can bend your elbows straight back. Not out to the side, but straight back. Like Chataranga, like we talked about before? So you're going to bend there, and set your knees all the way up in. As you come forward, it is important to find a flat back in a horizontal plank. A lot of us get into crow pose and we think get your hips really high, and set yourself down into this pose, which would look like this. Which is a lot of pressure going down. Which is a lot of pressure. So you want to be able to find like you're swimming on a lake. Like you're going to go horizontal plank. So you set your knees there. Looking forward. Peeling your heart forward. If you look down, you're going to want to roll. Right? You're going to want to do like a somersault roll, which would just be very inherent for your body. So instead, keep your gaze up. Keep your eyes up. And let the heart lead you forward. You will coast forward. And you have to lean past the part that feels safe. You've got to lean like an inch past your fear, and that's the point where your body will balance. And you'll see. So as I'm here, and I begin to lean forward, then my toes just peel off with the floor. Once they do, I'm going to try to find big toes to touch, and squeeze in and think cat back. I'm peeling my heels in towards my seat. Heart forward. And holding here. Fingertips are squeezing on the ground. Heart stays forward. And then to return, all you do is lean back towards the heels with the palms. Reach the feet down, and you're back to Malasana. The way you began. So that is your first arm balance Bacasana.
