How To Become Superhuman

How To Become Superhuman


One of my favourite movies as a child was Superman. Which guy doesn’t secretly want to be like him growing up?

However I was more like Clark Kent rather than any real superhero. I also had my fair share of bullying being the smallest in the class. Perhaps this is where my fascination with superheroes and becoming superhuman began – survival!

I assumed possessing miraculous super powers was a thing of fiction, until I came across a book called The Autobiography Of A Yogi, by Yogananda, a mystic from India who is famed for bringing indian spirituality to the West. In this book he speaks of superhuman yogis with incredible abilities to control their own physiology and display remarkable feats of strength and stamina. A deeper practice of yoga can lead to the development of superhuman powers know as ‘siddhi’.

My interest was further magnified when I became housebound with a chronic illness and the medication had stopped working. I needed a solution and remarkably the only thing that worked was when I began to practice ancient breathing techniques. It felt like I developed some of these powers myself after I suddenly began to heal. Read More…

Weightlifting Do’s and Don’ts


It’s no secret that accidents happen from time to time when weightlifting. Someone is trying to move heavy iron and, unfortunately, at times little things can go wrong. My goal is to minimize silly errors seen in our classes by addressing some super basic, but at times overlooked, rules when weightlifting.

Using Clips

Clips are there for your safety people! Use them! The last thing you need to worry about while going for a clean and jerk is whether or not the plates are going to stay on your barbell. It can be a serious danger to you as well as your fellow lifters if your barbell isn’t contained, so be smart and clip up!

Don’t Clip Your Bench Press

This is the only lift that I would recommend NOT using clips for. Here is an example as to why this would be. So, let’s say you are going for a one rep max bench and your spotter is having a hard time assisting you out of the bottom of that failed press. If your bar is clipped up you might become a pancake under that barbell, helpless and without an escape route. Now, if your bar DIDN’T have clips, you could slightly tilt your barbell to one side allowing the plates to fall to the floor thus releasing you from captivity.

Unloading Your Bar from a Rack

It is so important to unload your barbell with caution! Now this one is not necessarily a problem for a lighter barbell but most definitely is a problem if you are trying to unload heavy loads. People will make the mistake of unloading one side of their barbell completely and leaving the other side fully loaded. As I said before, this isn’t a problem at a lighter weight, #95 for example, but is a huge safety issue at #255. If you unload one side of your barbell and keep heavy weights on the other side you are creating a very dangerous situation. The barbell could potentially fall towards the loaded side and depending on how much momentum that barbell gets it would be a super unfortunate situation if anyone was standing near! Keep in mind the strong pull of gravity and unload your barbell with care! Read More…
