The Best Exercise You’re Not Doing

Over a hundred years ago, a group of Turkish wrestlers set out to invent a total-body movement that would prime young athletes for competition — an exercise that would build stamina and flexibility and improve stability and strength. The Turkish get-up was born. A wrestler lay supine on the ground, one hand holding a kettlebell straight overhead. As the name suggests, all he had to do was, well, get up. “As legend goes,” says Pavel Tsatsouline, a strength and conditioning coach credited with bringing kettlebell training to the U.S., “if an athlete could complete a perfect get-up with a 100-pound bell, only then could his coach allow him to continue his training.”

A century later, the smartest people in fitness still embrace the get-up. “If you had to choose one exercise to do the rest of your life, Turkish get-ups would give you everything,” says New York trainer Don Saladino, who has used the move to get clients like Ryan Reynolds in superhero shape. That doesn’t mean lifting a 100-pound weight, either. Even holding a light kettlebell can leave you gassed, Saladino says. “The key is how slow you go: Continuous time under tension is when you see real benefits.”

You’ve Been Pooping Wrong Your Entire Life

you've been pooping wrong your entire life

How many of you actually think about how you’re sitting on the toilet when you take a crap? Turns out, it’s something you should consider.

According to Daniel Lametti, who examined the best position for pooping in a piece for Slate, “bathroom posture” can actually have a big effect on your health.

Our bodies hold in feces with the help of a bend between our rectums and anuses. When we stand, the bend is at a 90-degree angle, which helps keep everything, um, inside. But when we squat, Lametti wrote, “the bend straightens out, like a kink ringed out of a garden hose, and defecation becomes easier.” 

Theoretically, that means that the closer you are to a squatting position, the easier it should be to poop. A 2003 study seemed to argue this is, indeed, the case; the participants who pooped in a squatting position needed less time and less straining to achieve a “sensation of satisfactory bowel emptying” compared to their toilet-sitting counterparts.

25 Psychological Life Hacks that Will Help You Gain The Advantage In Social Situation

1) Assume comfort in any interaction.

Our brain is an incredibly complicated instrument. Our relationship with it, is a love-hate one. We think we have control over it but usually something unconscious dictates our actions.

In most of our social interactions, we find it difficult to feel comfortable among strangers because our brain tries to protect us from exposure.

This however isn’t helping us when trying to be social and meet new people, is it?

This is why assuming comfort is so powerful. Commanding your brain to feel that you already know the person you are about to meet puts you in a position of advantage. It increases the chances of people showing interest in you and consequently even liking you.

2) Pay attention to people’s feet when you are approaching them.

Interrupting people when they are in the middle of an important conversation is one of the most annoying things to do. It shows that you have zero knowledge of social dynamics which will lead to unpleasant social situations.

When you approach a group of people while in a conversation, pay attention to their bodies. If they turn only their torsos and not their feet, it means they are in the middle of an important conversation and they don’t want you to interrupt them.

If they turn both torso and feet, it means you are welcome. This is extremely important, because the right timing in such situations may put you in a position of advantage, especially if the conversation was boring for both sides.
