Health Benefits of holding your nose while drinking.

Health Benefits of holding your nose while drinking.

I had a whole pack of spirulina  and made juices packed with greens and minerals , the only problem was the difficulty getting them in to my system on a regular basis , the problem the taste, the spirulina drinks and some of my green vegtable juices just were too much for my taste buds, the flavor of spirulina is like mould or as described on the internet pond water. Some green vegtable juices just taste bitter and overpowering. Once they are in my system then they can go to work on doing the wonders to my body and health, but not able to get them in there because im struggling to force it down my neck.

Then i thought of an old trick where if you hold your nose while drinking you can't taste whats in your mouth, or you can taste it but only just very subtle taste ie a bitter feeling or sour feeling in the mouth. Now using this trick i can easy consume large amounts of green juice and using the holding the nose technique its as though I'm only drinking a glass of water. the taste is the hurdle , use this trick to get past that.  Think that it interferes with the taste receptors, stop the bitter taste of vegetable juices or the odd taste of some other health drinks.

Now ive got no excuse . Kids show showing the same thig enjoy.

Floor Exercises Leg Stretching for Kick Moves Hip Joints power

Put on some relaxing music and spend an hour on the floor. Stretching and relaxing. Giving your legs a good Stretching, the videos and image will give you and idea of how to stretch your legs.

Not in English ,but using these techniques to open up the range of motion in the hips, i particularly like the slapping on the legs and feet and massaging the toes. Spent 45 Min's gong through these exercises , think the thing to do is to relax in to the range of motion and also alternate with active tensing of the muscles in use. Stretching my legs out on the floor but also tensing and flexing the calf and leg muscles. Think this relaxes the muscles and also builds in the use of action in those new positions its about building up the leg strength for flexibility. When stretching to new angles the legs have not been used in those positions before so the muscles are not only stretched and tight , they also haven't got much understanding or muscle memory with what to do in these new positions practice some kick moves. So while outstretched , wiggle the toes rotate the feet , swing round the legs in circles , give the legs something to do while in the new positions. So not only is the flexibility built in to the muscle use and range of motion is also built in. I also find that having a resistance band helps with holding and strengthen some of the kick stretching positions

my pof personality test , plenty of fish test results


As someone with high self-confidence, you feel quite comfortable interacting with other people. Indeed, you find the company of others very stimulating and enjoy meeting new people. Your relaxed demeanor in groups makes people around you comfortable too. Perhaps because you feel comfortable talking about yourself, others tend to enjoy being around you and perceive you as socially competent.
The confidence that helps you feel comfortable talking to people also spills into your own personal beliefs about yourself. Although you have several strengths, it’s likely that you also acknowledge and accept your weaknesses. But unlike some people, you take full responsibility for your actions—you rarely regret things you’ve done in the past and are not embarrassed easily.
Perhaps the defining feature that sets you apart from most people is the exceptionally high standards that you set for yourself. Your competence in social gatherings as well as at work should provide ample evidence for this. With these characteristics, it’s very likely that people come to you for advice and generally think of you as someone with leader-like qualities.

Family Orientation

As someone who is oriented to familial matters, you value the company of family-members and domestic life. If you have children already, you enjoy spending time with them very much and work hard to be a good parent. If you don’t have children, you very much desire having children in the future. And your preference for cooking and entertaining guests at home will likely ease the transition into parenthood.
You take pride in maintaining and cultivating a healthy family and work hard to achieve this. This natural tendency is easily illustrated by your preference for doing things around the house as opposed to going out to clubs and restaurants.
What really sets you apart from people that are low in family orientation is that you know how to manage your frustrations and work well on your own. This means that you are well-equipped to manage a family without letting all the work that is involved wear you down. However, as someone with strong family values, all the work that is involved in maintaining a tidy home and well-stocked kitchen might occasionally make it difficult for you to finish everything that you need to do.


The self-control personality dimension captures the way in which a person regulates and directs him or herself. Being low in self-control can be both good and bad. Occasionally people may be compelled to follow their intuitions and give in to their temptations, and your degree of self-control makes this likely to happen more often than not. This can be good in circumstances where being relaxed and open are important. However, in situations where it is necessary to be focused and careful, you might find that you do or say things that may be inappropriate.
As someone who exerts little control over your actions, you may find that you commit social blunders that might offend other people and get yourself in trouble. For example, if you’re given responsibility to work on a project that requires close attention to detail, you may be likely to overlook important details because you have difficulty staying focused. Consequently, you might feel more comfortable delegating such tasks to other people who are more detail oriented. Being able to recognize such characteristics in yourself and having more detail-oriented people do such tasks could be an effective way to manage your own stress level.
Low self-control may diminish your effectiveness at work. Acting too relaxed can make it difficult for you to focus on projects that require organized sequences of steps or stages. Thus, your ability to accomplish may be inconsistent. Indeed, it’s possible that you might be criticized periodically for being unreliable or unable to “stay within the lines.” Nonetheless, you may still experience many short-lived pleasures and never be thought of as boring.


As someone high in openness, you have a strong appreciation for beauty, both in art and nature. Indeed, it’s likely that you are easily absorbed in music and art, as well as natural phenomena. Another aspect of your openness is your emotional insight; that is, you probably have good access to and awareness of your own emotions.
Another aspect of the openness dimension is the tendency to think about abstract concepts and ideas. This thinking style may take the form of artistic and metaphorical use of language, and/or music composition or performance. Thus, it is likely that, either in your work or spare time, you enjoy activities that get your “creative juices” flowing.
Your tendency to be open-minded can have advantages and disadvantages. For instance, when there are no clear rules about how to approach a particular problem, your openness makes it easier for you to identify new ways to solve problems that might not be very obvious to people that are not as open as you are. In contrast, you may be bored easily in situations that lack high amounts of intellectual stimulation. In such cases, you might have difficulty excelling on projects that do not provide much stimulation or require much creative thinking.


Easygoingness refers to one's ability to relax. Based on your score, you appear to “take things as they come” and enjoy having a good time. However, being high in easygoingness also has the potential to produce stress in a number of ways. For example, you may find it difficult to complete tasks thoroughly and efficiently. In this way, being high in easygoingness cannot only make your life difficult, but also the lives of the people around you. Another potential problem with being too high in easygoingness is that it can provide you with gratification in the short-term, but in the long-term provide undesirable consequences.
High easygoingness, even when not seriously destructive, may also diminish your effectiveness at work, for example. You may find it aversive and difficult to put in all the effort that may sometimes be needed to effectively accomplish certain tasks. For this reason, your colleagues might view you as forgetful and unfocused.

How does your personality affect your love life?

With the strong degree of self-confidence that you possess, it’s no surprise that you get along well with most people. Indeed, it’s self-confidence that allows people to feel comfortable interacting with others without feeling insecure and vulnerable. For this reason, you shouldn’t have much difficulty in romance, at least not initially. Your social skills will likely help relieve any anxiety your romantic partners might have on those first few dates. However, over time, the high standards that you have for yourself could potentially frustrate your partner.
Given how much you value family life, you probably get along best with people who share your values and beliefs. In fact, it’s likely that you maintain close connections with members of your immediate and distant family. For this reason, you would probably be most satisfied in a romantic relationship with someone who also values domestic life.
Being in a relationship with someone who enjoys going out to parties and staying-up late at night might be fun, at least initially; yet it’s likely that you will find this tiring over time. Thus, it might be easier and more satisfying for you to develop a long-lasting relationship with a person who also enjoys spending time at home and desires starting a family. On first dates, perhaps you might suggest to your partner that the two of you spend a quiet night having dinner at one of your respective homes instead of going out to a restaurant or club.
As someone who is more relaxed than most people, you likely get along with most people quite well. Chances are that your friends and colleagues perceive you as lively, fun to be with, and good-humored. When it comes to romance, you’ll likely be attracted to most people. However, your free-spirited nature might make being in a relationship with a person that is more rigid than you difficult because you might perceive the person as being too uptight and controlling.
Your openness probably makes it easy for you to respect and appreciate people that are different from you. However, when it comes to romantic relationships, your openness might make it difficult for you to tolerate people that cannot appreciate diversity as much as you. Therefore, you may be happiest in serious relationships with people that share your open-mindedness. But, your openness might occasionally cause a certain degree of dependency on your end because you may be so open that you easily adopt the preferences and habits of your partners and gradually relinquish things that make you so unique.

Congratulations! You just completed the Plenty of Fish Chemistry Predictor!

The Plenty of Fish Compatibility Predictor (CP) measures five broad relationship variables that are each essential for building romantic relationships. People don't need to score "high" on each of these characteristics to be in a fulfilling relationship. What's important is how your profile interacts with the profile of a potential romantic partner -- or what is commonly called “chemistry.” Based on decades of empirical research in the social sciences, the CP captures the five key ingredients that can determine whether or not two people have the “right” psychological chemistry. The relationship variables are:

Self-Confidence, or the degree to which a person feels comfortable with him or herself. People that are high in self-confidence tend to be assertive and competent in both their private and public relationships. People that are low in self-confidence tend to be reticent and somewhat anxious.

Family Orientation, or the degree to which a person supports and values the family. People that are family-oriented tend to want or already have children, are very close to their immediate relatives and prefer cooking at home to eating at a restaurant. People that are not family-oriented tend to be individualistic, unconventional and very much enjoy attending parties and social functions.

Self-Control, or the extent to which a person exerts control over various aspects of life. People that are high in self-control tend have strong emotional reactions to things and try to regulate those feelings by micromanaging and attending to specific details. People that are low in self-control are usually relaxed, even-tempered and lenient.

Openness, or the extent to which a person is open to and dependent upon others. People that are high in openness tend to like a wide range of things (e.g., food, music, movies, etc.), in part because they are concerned with pleasing other people. In contrast, people low in openness are very independent and opinionated; they know what they like and aren’t apt to change their opinion.

Easygoingness, or a person’s work ethic and degree of mental flexibility. People that are high in easygoingness are very relaxed, broadminded and unaffected by change. In contrast, people low in easygoingness tend be hardworking, firm, and sometimes inflexible.

IMPORTANT: Before reading your profile, remember that the report is based on generalizations from research on an international validation sample. Some feedback may not apply to your case. For instance, we know that overall those scoring "moderate or high" on Family Orientation tend to either want children soon or are open to the idea in the future. However, this generalization may not be accurate for all moderate and high scorers. Use these results for self-awareness and self-reflection...and hopefully as a conversation piece with other Plenty of Fish members!

How to improve the height and power of your martial arts kicks

How to improve the height and power of your martial arts kicks,

Back kicks are a powerful kick , what i am trying to learn is how to increase the range and motion of my kicks, my leg kicks although have enough power to defend myself, the muscles on the back of my legs still feel tights and the speed and range of motion need allot of practice.

Kick power is generated by the speed and force of a kick to the opponent, and to be able to have this power and speed you need to be in control of the balance and position of your body to enable the kick to move through the full range of motion and connect at full force. By being flexible with the spinning kick, you can easily use this spinning motion to hit the target in either the legs , ribs head or arms.

A strong spinning kick to the leg or knee of the opponent may be all it takes to finish the fight and escape from danger.  My current routine for improving the height and power of my martial arts and kick boxing kicks are using technique if have found on these videos from Youtube. Using a wall to stretch my legs out and using chairs and other objects to place my feet and stretch out.  Also taking time a kicking programme sould not be rushed , allowing at least an hour to build the range of motion in to my hips and legs. Often holding kick positions against the wall so that the kick moves and balance can be developed.

Improve your luck and chances a little bit, increase probability or success.

I read that luck is improved by following this principal






This means that in order to improve luck you need to increase the percentage and probability so that there is a greater chance of becoming lucky.

What is luck , think i would define luck of serendipitous events leading to an outcome that you would require.

So the labor part, doing actions that increase the chance of having the lucky outcome. If you are trying to meet a new person , you improve your luck of finding that person if you leave the house.

If you are trying to loose weight you will have more luck and chance of sucsess if you follow a healthy lifestyle.

If you want more money or a new job and career you improve your luck by study , and work and looking for the jobs and applying.

Luck is nothing more than a chance or unexpected, twist of fate that takes life in the direction of your dreams and wishes. To improve luck learn what situations you need to place your self in that will make you be that lucky winner.

When going out, do you need to drink the alcohole to be luckier, or do you need to spend lots of money, or does just simply being in the club or at the event bring you the outcome.

Without spending all the money and recovery time on alcohole and drugs, you can work towards sucsess all day and night and never need to recover. Of course sleep is needed.

Become lucky with your friends and family by always being available, and throwing out ideas and situations out there see if you get any nibbles or bites. Be suggestive, suggest courses or action and ideas that would lead to the outcome. Suggest possible actions that may manifest in to your luck improving.

Labor under correct knowlege, know who you need to see or where you need to be to get your lucky outcome, people will say wow he's really lucky with people or so many good things just seem to happen with this person, but really you will know that this is just chance and a result of hard work and determination, on your part. Some times you just need to suggest something and other people will go to work automatically with out realizing to bring this situation to light.

Like a ripple effect, the desire that you put out in to the world will some how find its way back to you!

Learn to play the game and like in the art of war if you control the battle field and know the enemy and thy self then you will know what outcomes may happen and know what is the solution to this that will turn the situation in your favor.

By working to improve good luck , you also work to improve bad luck at the same time, so this is a situation you must also bear in mind. By attempting to increase your chance of sucsess , it means there is also more chance of failure.

You can try to become lucky with a job by searching and studying and attending interviews , which improves your chance of getting a job, but at the same time you are creating a situation which has 2 sides. So although you may improve your chance and luck by from 10% to 30% there is still the 70% chance of failure.

Luck is still the probability that some thing will happen in favor.

On the other hand look at it from an Unlucky persons point of view, this is the way you reduce bad luck, if you fail 100% of the time and always belive that you are just an unlucky person then , working on ways to reduce bad luck , you may still fail over and over but as there is a slim chance of sucsess, then its worth the endevor.

Often only a single win can be life changing, while loss after loss is nothing more than an annoyance.

If all you have is a 1% chance then is it worth failing 99 times out of 100 to get that success. Once you have had that lucky break then you may never need to try again.

Can a monkey workout like this, power to the core!!

Although im all on doing my upper body workout dips and chinups to get back some of my natural power, these dudes take raw animal strength and human potential and show you how it can be done, this is pure upper body strength callisthenics's . Though if they got in some trees i think a few of these guys would fall to the ground. Park working out using the children's play area as an adult fully functional gym. When they built this park and swings for kids they created a set of challenges to be overcome. Dips pullups and hood workouts were soon to follow, its not about giving someone a push on the swing , not its about cranking out planch and L-sits on the slide. Still think if you let monkeys loose in a place like this they would come up with a few exercises that even these guys would find impressive


A well balanced routine before combat training

A well balanced routine before combat training, this is a good whole body stretching and flexibility routine before going in to a sports combat or MMA training session, even just doing this kind of routine throughout the day to keep limber and supple is very positive, you don't want to be all tight all the time and only loosen up 20 mins before training , the idea is to always keep limber and flexible so that your body adapts and learns to function better, a good warm up routine also preps the mind and coordination. This routine gets you on the floor and works all the major muscle and ligament groups in the body. Before throwing full force punches allow the arms and body to go through some of the movements at a slower more controlled pace to build fluidity and muscle memory in to the action. Also even if your all beat up from the gym or the ring allow a few sessions of stretching and warmup after so that nothing stiffens up.

Dynamic movement, your gonna move your gonna sprawl. Be like a lizard or a slippery eel learn to wriggle and twist and this will get you out of more situations.
