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.

Using judo in cage fighting. If you look at Frank Mir versus Roy Nelson, it was a fight a while ago - look it up, you can see Frank did not want to shoot on Nelson because Nelson's big. So what if you used judo? Judo is great because you don't have to change level. I'm not saying one art is better than another but it's just a great option. Let's start with the basic footwork of the hip throw. Ok guys, stay with it. Alright, okay. Guys, so, step, step. Not one step like wrestlers do. Alright? It's not wrong, but you're going to get more power. Step, pivot. Okay, you see that? Step, pivot. Step, pivot. Step, pivot. That's the footwork. Now, I'm in the clinch. Okay, it's easy. You can throw it from here but easier, punch him, get over here, step, step, pivot, hip throw. Okay? Sorry, buddy, you okay? Chad. Chad's going to go now. He's going to punch up, step, pivot, throw. Right there. One more time. Here, punch. Watch the footwork. Step, step, pivot. Okay? Hip throw. Old guso, great judo form. Now, one thing you want to be careful not to do is this throw here, good throw, but if you mess it up he's going to get your back. Okay? And that's bad. So, I prefer to hit it from here. Is this wrong? It's not wrong but you'd better hold tight. You'd better hold tight, otherwise this happens. Chad. I go here, I mess up, ah! Yeah. So, use the under hook. Alright? Hip throw.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1DIxHwS Watch more MMA Fighting Techniques videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501831-6-Slip-Basics-MMA-Fighting Other than parrying or covering, now let's go through some basic head movement or slipping. 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.

One of the most basic forms we can look at is from ai han mi, kate datori. Again, like in all of our other techniques, I don't want to fight directly with my partner's line of strength. So I'm going to follow my own. This is actually quite easy to move. So both hands up, away from his line of strength, and I'm going to slide forward. My back hand is going to meet the elbow and turn the hips. Urime, step in. Urime toward the side. Again, shoulder to the ground, and down for a pin. This isn't one of the more painful pins, but it works very well in terms of keeping your partner immobilized. Hands up and slide your body forward. Turn the hips, step in, and out. Again, in almost every technique in aikido we have one variation that goes to the front side and one variation that goes to the back side. The back side wura, hands come up. Instead of sliding to the front, I'm gong to take a step irini, to the back. Tenkan and continue to turn all the way down. Hands up, irini, tenkan, kaiten. So the imote variation. Irini, irini, ura, and ura. Ikkyo, number one.

What Military Branch Should You Join? | Boot Camp
 
01:50
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 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.

Obviously it's to work the biceps. Now with the bar, you have different choices. There's an easy curl bar, which is the zig zag bar. Or you can use the straight bar. Both are just as efficient as the other. So, to start out with this exercise, what you wanna do; always start with your base, your feet. Make sure they, your knees are nice and loose, not locked out. And make sure that your arms are nice and loose, not locked out. And what I mean by locked out is you never wanna lock your elbow out, cause that could damage the joint. You always keep a soft elbow, slightly bent, no matter what, through your entire rep, and the entire set. So during this exercise, the hard part, the positive part; is coming up, squeeze, come back down through the negative. Always want to keep control of this exercise. You see a lot of guys with bad habits, throwing the bar up, letting the bar drop; doing nothing for themselves. So, the more concentrated you are on the bicep, the better results you are gonna get. So its up, squeeze. Back down. Notice my elbows are not coming all the way forward. You don't want to have to be picking up your arm like this. Cause then your are taking away from the bicep work. Its elbows remain locked in place. Bier side, come up squeeze, control back down. Control the negative. Breathing wise, when you get really taxed, you wanna make sure that you are breathing through the, all of your exercise. So you always breath out during the hard part, when you are working against gravity. So it's up, breathe out. Remember to squeeze that bicep at the top. Inhale on the way down. Come up squeeze, inhale on the way down. And that's your basic bicep exercise. Basic straight barbell curl.

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 like to show a lot of kicks off with the lead side, which keeps you safe as far as, uh, take downs and, and counters. So again, righty against righty, you have your first basic kick, which is the inside leg kick, okay. The outside leg kick sometimes gets you in trouble, especially against a wrestler, he's gonna grab that leg and then he's gonna shoo it in, and take you down. Inside leg kick leaves me a little safer cause I can always come back to my stance and I'm not as off balance. So again you have the inside leg kick, okay, so that's your first basic kick. Another good kick that people um, a lot of people that I don't think they use enough, are the push kicks, okay, or the teeps, okay, using, using the push kicks to keep your opponent away. I'm gonna aim for the body, okay, I could also aim for the hip, and obviously I can aim toward the head, okay, with the push kicks. Alright, push kicks to be body, push kicks to the hips, or push kicks to the face. And, another lead leg kick that you can work is the switch kick to the body. You can switch kick to the body and attack the arm, or if that arm is up, and the rib cage is exposed you can attack the rib cage. Making sure that my head is always safe, keeping my head away. Um, last basic kick, again off of the lead side, is attacking the back leg. A lot of people like to attack the front leg with the outside or the inside leg kick people will sometime neglect that back leg. So what you're going to do to attack the back leg you gonna shuffle out a little, take a little step, and drive your shin toward that back leg. Again, I shuffle out, hands stay up high, and I use my shin to attack the thigh. But I always come back to my stance, ready for a take-down or ready for a counter. So again, I'll flow through them, inside leg kick, push kick, switch kick to the body, or step out and attack the leg. Okay, so those are your basic kicks, attacking head, body, or leg.

This is a wonderful technique to take a look at, and see how the sword work that we do in Aikido translates directly to the movement that we use in open hand. We start with the. One of the basic things that I need to consider always is to get offline and away from the attack. I'm going to change my body 90 degrees, take the wrist, lift straight up in front of my face again like a sword, step through, turn and cut. Offline, lift, step through, and again like the sword, if I'm holding a sword in my partners hand here, you don't cut with the handle of the sword. You want to extend and cut with the tip of the sword, which we're going to think about as my partner's arm. So as you cut and extend out, it should bend your partner's back and take her balance. It should not be a throw where you just yank down and try and cut with the hand. Extend the elbow out and down. As this begin to progress and you make the cuts happen a little bit faster, you'll see how this changes the style a little bit. To the side, lift and cut. Shihonage, four directions throw.

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.

Dwayne 'Swoop' Simpson: Who's Shammgod? Eric: Shammgod is God Shammgod Wells. Dwayne: Yes. Eric: Former star NBA player. And he had a move named after him. Dwayne: Oh really? Eric:Yeah. 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.

This technique is called sankyo. Or number three in the series of techniques that O'Sensei established. And again, this whole series, one through five, is going to start with ikkyo. So if we look at shomenuchi, ikkyo, you meet and down. Again, I want to lift the hand so that I'm looking at the palm of my partner's hand. Reach underneath. I'm going to wrap my fingers right around the inside of the palm. And the fingers are another aspect that I have. I'm going to step back. And think about pointing all of this directly at your partner as they turn and cut. Again, this is very similar to the sword work that we do in aikido. Again, I don't want to point the fingers down and cut with the butt of the sword. I want to try to cut out with the tip and the elbow of the sword. And I'm going to continue to move around the front, irimi tenkan and down. The pin incorporated here, sankyo pin. Alright. So again, you start with ikkyo. Ikkyo, lift, take the hand and step back, cut, irimi tenkan, straight down on the shoulder and pin. So if we look at the ura variation. Again, I move to the back side first, lift, continue to move behind and down, spiraling movement towards ugay's back. Up for the pin, pull through. Ura, lift, hand position, tenkan, and back. Up for the pin, pull through. Couple other variations that we'll often see, straight down, straight up. Can also use sankyo to create openings for other techniques. Sankyo, number three.

Broadway: What's up? Swoop: Sometimes I get a little confused at where I should be playing on the court. I need your help, man. 'Cuz I'm really not sure what position I should play, man. 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. Come on. Let's go check it out. Broadway: All right, Swoop. Swoop: What's going on, Broadway? Broadway: We're going to teach everybody about the positions on the court. Swoop: Ah, yes, yes. All right. Broadway: Assume the position. Swoop: Well, I want to be, what? What was this? Can I be the kicker? Broadway: No, this is basketball. Swoop: Oh, OK. You're right, you're right. All right. How about the center fielder? I like center field. Broadway: No, there's no center field here. Swoop: Where, where ... Broadway: Half court, free throw line, three point line. No center field. Swoop: So, can you explain to me the positions again, man? I'm sorry. Broadway: Obviously we gotta bring in some experts. So, we got King Arthur. We got Mr. 540. Swoop: Right. Broadway: We got DP the Enforcer. Swoop: Uh-huh. Broadway: And we're gonna explain the positions on the court. Swoop: OK. Where ... Broadway: And you get to pick your own position today. Swoop: Oh, do I really? Broadway: Yeah, where do you want to play? Swoop: OK. Well, let's start with the point guard then. 'Cuz you know what I'm saying? Broadway: OK. Swoop: 'Cuz I could be a point ... Broadway: No, no, no. Swoop: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What, what? You got a point guard already? Broadway: Yeah, we got a point guard. Swoop: OK. 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

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 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.

Follow through, all net. Swoop: All net. A: This is an expert, Swoop! Swoop: This expert! A: This is an expert! Swoop: Yeah, but what you say... A: [SS] Swoop: ...this is not gonna work for me. A: No, that's not gonna be what we're looking for. Swoop: That's not gonna work. But I'm working on it. A: No, no, no, that's not what we're looking for.

Swoop: Wow, that's a lot. A: But guess what? If you focus on your shooting technique first... Swoop: Right. A: ...then you'll be able to become a better shooter once you do it over and over again.

Dwayne: Right. Eric: ... from getting the ball. So the ball drops here, you can't get it. Dwayne: But I want to go around him. So he's boxing me out. I can't ... Eric: He's boxing you out. Dwayne: I can't ... . Eric: You can't move. You're locked in. You're in jail. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: You're done. Dwayne: So he's gonna box me in. Eric: So I'm gonna put the ball right here, and I want you to try to get it. Dwayne: Okay. That, oh. Eric: See that? You're boxed out. Dwayne: Oh, okay. Eric: Go get it. Dwayne: Okay. Eric: Go get it. You see that? You see you're boxed out.That's what happens. And then he gets the ball. You see that, Swoop? He made contact with you first, boxed you out, go get the basketball. Dwayne: Positioning. Eric: Yeah. And then you always want to grab rebounds with two hands. Dwayne: Two hands, right. Eric: You want to make sure you grab that ball with two hands. Why? Dwayne: Securely. Eric: Because if you have it with one hand somebody could smack it out. Dwayne: Oh. Eric: Two hands, harder to get it. Dwayne: Yeah. Eric: Makes sense. Doesn't it? Dwayne: It is, man. You guys are helping me a lot, man. Eric: Yeah. You're gonna become a better basketball player yet, son. Dwayne: I hope so. I hope so. Eric: So those are the keys to rebounding. Make sure you box out first, make contact, grab the ball with two hands. That's how you become a better rebounder.

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 there's different variations to this. You can do um together or one at a time. I personally like one at a time, cause you can really focus on it. Now as opposed to a regular curl, you're not gonna rotate your wrist up to the sky. Now notice in your regular curl, when you rotate you're really peaking out your bicep. So you're working a lot of the interior of the bicep. With a hammer curl, you're focusing more on the width of your bicep in your forearm. Okay. So that's the primary focus of the hammer curl. Now to do these, you'll start just like your regular dumbbell curls. Hands at your side, nice base. Shoulder width apart with your feet. Loose knees, not locked out. Elbows, not locked out. Nice soft elbow. Now as you come up, you can come in different directions. You can come straight up or you can come across your body. I love to come across the body just because you feel a little more on that bicep. But, to do this, it's very controlled movement. Squeeze. Come back down. Come up, very controlled movement. Squeeze. It's really important to get that squeeze and flex everything you got in there. Come back down controlled. Don't be throwing the weights around cuz it won't do anything for ya. Breathing, is very important during this exercise. As you come up, you're going to breath out. Squeeze, release, breath in. Come up, breath out, squeeze, breath in. Bad habits always happen with this exercise. you see guys throwin them up, elbows not locked in place. Keep your elbow right locked by your side. Come up, squeeze, come back down. You'll really feel it in your forearm and in the middle of your bicep if you're doing it right. Come up and down. Come up and down. That's your dumbbell hammer curl.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You're gonna spread that deck all around the cup, kinda like that. You could do it a little neater in your home if you'd like. everyone sits around the cars, and starting with the ugliest player. So everyone sits around the cards and then you decide who's the drunkest at the table and they start. Or whatever you guys decide. The oldest, the youngest, the stupidest, whatever you guys want. It's house rules. And you pick a card. Now, I'm just, I've pulled out of the deck for demonstration purposes, as I said, the cards in order and I'm just gonna explain what they are.

Watch more How to Do Yoga videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501352-How-to-Do-a-Dancers-Pose-Yoga On your way to Dancer's Pose, on this journey, you will have opened your thighs. 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.

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.

Nikio, comes from knee, or the number two in Japanese language. So, this is the second basic technique that our sensei established for us. If we start with Giacahame Katadatori, one of the easiest ways to get here, or to Nichio, rather, I'm going to move offline, so tension movement. And I want to make sure that my partner has something to run into, so I don't pull this hand into me. Let him run into this had, I'm going to trail all the way down his arm to take the back of the hand, grab the wrist as I lift it up and place it on my shoulder and just compress as I bow towards my partner. This is probably one of the more painful things we do in ichido so it's good to stay relaxed and move with the pin. Take the elbow, turn it over and place the shoulder on the floor. Get down in position for the pin that accompanies this, Nichio. Tension movement, down to find the hand, lift up, grab the wrist, over to the shoulder and compress. Shoulder over on the ground, make the transition for the pin. You can find this from lots of different positions, again stramanuchi ...ski...morotetori...tataminuch. Ok, Nichio, number two.

Planeos and Calesitas tend to get confusing. So the difference with a Planeo is that your partner will actually lower your level. Diego Blanco: By lowering his. Ana: By lowering his and that will create your leg to create a longer stride. But you will still maintain all your weight on one access as he takes you around. So you will maintain this low figure until he changes his level, bringing your feet together. Diego: When we talk about changes of level we're pretty much talking about following the bend of the knees. If I bend my knees she bends her knees. It is pretty simple. Calecita on the other hand does not have that, as you have seen before. It is a straight figure. Okay? Let's take this Planeo from the forward ochos. Side, all the way to the cross, into a forward ocho. When she comes into that forward ocho I'm going to step around her and start to walk back. Make sure you don't vary the size of the step as much as possible. And just bring your feet together once you step with the right. And for me you can continue dancing. So the way the leading works for a Planeo is through your bend of knee. So when I bend my knees she is going to bend her knee. Now, I'm going to step around and maintain that bend of knee as I go down, around. For instance, if I do this, down and come back up, she's going to be in a Calesita. So her leg, her trailing leg will not be long and therefore it will not be a Planeo.

This is Max Tapper again for Howcast. Today, I'm going to show you guys how to do a squat. Yes! 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.

Now I'm going to teach the followers their step and Diego will come back and teach the lead. So Boleo can either be done forward or back. Today we are going to do back Boleo. 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]

This isn't one of the most basic techniques that you'll see, but you will come across it in general training. Again, the Aiki comes from the basic name of aikido which means to blend your energy. The otoshi part of the technique is a drop. So, this is a blending drop. So, if we start with yoko hanmi katatori. One of the most basic ways for us to get into position for Aiki Otoshi is to remove my partner's hand and I'm also going to toss his up in the air as I slide underneath. And I want to be able to have my partner kind of sandwiched between my arm and my knees that's back behind my partner's legs. Reach down and I'm going to clamp my knees together and lift up and away. This is a basic form of Aiki Otoshi, a blending drop. Move to the side, remove my partner's hand as I go underneath. Take the knees and lift up and away. You shouldn't feel yourself using too much effort or force to lift the knees. If you find yourself getting here and trying to lift your partner straight up, you're going to run into a lot of weight. So, in order to get that to work smoothly, again, collapse the knees together and I want to lift the knees up and away. Not directly toward me. Together. For a more dynamic sense of Aiki Otoshi or this movement, it becomes more of a projection. So, I'm going to use my center to knock his away. It's almost like you are playing billiards or croquet where one ball hits another one and makes it move. Away. Arm comes up and moves straight through your partner. Also from yokomenuchi, another attack. And that was Aiki Otoshi, the blending drop.

16 Facts about Months 1 through 3 | Baby Development
 
03:32
Watch more Newborn & Baby Development videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506124-16-Facts-about-Months-1-through-3-Baby-Development When parents come for their one month visit they're most interested in feeding issues. Feeding issues, peeing issues, and pooping issues are all the popular one month visit issues. So, a one month should be feeding every three to four hours during the day. In the evening a one month old might feed every three hours, but they might sleep three to five hours. If they do then you're really lucky. You don't have to wake a one month old baby up every three hours to feed any more unless your doctor tells you that your baby is not gaining enough weight and needs to be woken up every two to three hours let's say. Breast-fed babies wake more often, because they just don't get as much volume when they breast feed. Often, a baby's put on the breast, and when they hear the mom's heartbeat and they feel the mom's warmth they just fall right back to sleep. They don't finish that full feed like a bottle-fed baby might get three or four ounces before bed. Babies often cluster feed, and that's normal. So, a baby might feed every hour during the day, especially a breast-fed baby, and in the evening that baby might sleep longer. That's fine. Babies should have anywhere between three to five wet diapers a day, and poop can range. Some breast-fed babies poop with every feed, whereas some babies don't poop for five days. That's totally normal. I would say that the majority of the phone calls I get are parents worrying about a baby being constipated. There's a wide range of normal, and that's OK. At one month the baby should be regarding your face, looking at you while they're feeding. What the baby is seeing is the contrast of you against the wall behind. So, sometimes parents feel that the baby is looking past them because their vision is about 20/400. It's very out of focus. What they're looking at is a contrast of you against the wall behind them, and that's OK. Between one month and three months the baby is going to start to recognize you, regard your face, know your voice. A baby should be responding to sound of course. They still have the startle reflex, so if a loud car drives by or somebody honks a horn they'll startle. That's the Moro reflex. That's normal. Babies should be sleeping on their back. I recommend that parents rotate the baby's head from side to side. I almost make the analogy of a rotisserie chicken. You want it cooked all the way around. So with the baby's head, because we are preventing SIDS by having a baby lie on their back, we are creating a flat back of their head. That's called postural plagiocephaly. To prevent postural plagiocephaly I recommend that the parents rotate the baby's head from side to side when they put them to sleep. Then during the day time when the baby's awake you can give the baby tummy time. Parents ask how much tummy time does a baby need. There's no set menu for tummy time. Five minutes for a baby is eternity. You often put your baby on their tummy and they're supposed to lift their head up but they smush their head back down. That's fine, but you want to keep on practicing with the baby because they're sleeping on their back for so long some of their milestones are delayed, and we want them to learn to push up when they're awake. So, whenever the baby's awake you can put the baby on a firm surface like the mattress in a crib or a play mat on the floor and let the baby learn to push up and hold their head up. Babies don't need water at this age. Water starts at four months. On warm days you just have to keep your baby cool and well hydrated with formula or with breast milk. As far as smiling, smiling develops between six weeks to two and a half months. A baby will start smiling when they're happy or when they're soothed. A baby should also, between one and three months, be calmed by your voice when you come in the room and be consoled. If a baby has excessive crying where they cannot be consoled whatsoever then you should contact your physician.

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.

So again, if it's righty against righty, Chad's going to throw the jab. I'm going to parry the jab and then fire a jab back. Alright? So that's your first basic counter. He throws the jab, I parry it, and I stick the jab back at him. Okay? So that's one counter. So one more time. I parry, I stick the jab back. Second counter is if he throws a jab, I parry it again. This time I come over the top with the right hand. Okay? There's two things to throwing this right hand. I don't want to keep my chin way up the air. I want to to sort of get my head out to the side. So again, Chad throws a jab, I parry, I come over the top with a cross. So I want to protect my head by making sure the head is off to the side on a 45 degree angle. Same thing with a jab. If I parry and I fire it back a jab I want to move my head out to the side. I don't want to lead with my head for these strike encounters. I want to keep my head away. So he throws that jab, I parry, I move the head out, and I stick the jab. So again, he throws a jab, I stick the jab, he fires a jab, I come over with a cross. One more counter. And you can parry the jab. You can also come around with that hook. Okay? That's another good way to counter the jab. I parry it, come around with a hook and I'm aiming for the chin. And again, I'm always keeping this right hand up to protect my head. So one more time. He throws a jab, I parry it, come across with that hook. Chad: We're going to work on entries off of the jab. Alright? So Chris is going to show the jab personally as he does, I lower my stance, step at the same time, and shoot in for my single. Make sure to keep the head on the inside. Very similar entry. Another variation of the single, if the leg comes out, I am going to step in and drive as with my outside hand, make contact with the knee. Right to my [indecipherable 01:58]. So, one more time. Alright guys, so that is your basic entry to a single leg take down off of a jab counter in MMA.

Your first day at basic will be one you're never gonna forget. Ask anyone with prior military experience and they're gonna tell you a story of remarkable detail. So, let me explain to you what's gonna happen. First of all just understand that the day is gonna suck. It's gonna be long, and you're gonna be overworked, you're gonna be lacking sleep, and it's gonna be stressful, okay. And you're gonna do nothing right, even if you do everything right. In my case, they loaded about 70 soldiers up on a cattle truck. And a cattle truck can fit about 20 soldiers. So we're all in the cattle truck with our arms over our head and the duffle bags with no suspension. And it took about a 10 minute ride and by the time the cattle truck stopped our arms and shoulders were burning because we were holding that weight over our head. And when we all had to get out of the truck tip: don't be the last one out of truck there were dozens of drill sergeants waiting for us, yelling at us, barking orders. And uh, the first task we had to do was to line up all of our duffle bags in alphabetical order. So here we are, surrounded by 70 other recruits, we don't know each other's names, and we had to line up our bags in alphabetical order. Not an easy task to do in three minutes. By the way, if a drill sergeant says to get something done in three minutes, it means 45seconds. They can't tell time very well. So after about four hours of exercising we were told to go upstairs and shower our muddy bodies but they conveniently turned off the hot water. So we were muddy, tired, cold, and we had to go to bed and wake up in about three hours for the next day of training. That'll be somewhat similar to your first day, but it will be memorable. "

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.

The butterfly kick is basically a round house kick and a jump spinning hook kick done at the same time. This is a very famous kick in Kung-Fu. So we'll begin by showing you the fundamentals and basics. To begin with Ty is going to go to a forward stance. He's going to stretch both arms out and what we want to do is have the left hand forward. The reason why is as you do this kick you want to swing the arms from one ear to another. Now, when you get to this point, the arms are whipping, you want to pivot and bring your leg up. You want to try to hold your leg up in the air and look up so that you get a nice arch in the back and the toe is pointed. You want to try to keep your hip down. This is the first part of the kick. Let's try that one more time. He's going to turn, swing the arms, and look up, like you're looking at someone, and point your toe. That's the first part of the kick. Now the next way you want to practice this kick is with a qualified partner who knows how to spot you. What he's going to do is he's going to step up and you're going to give him your arm. It's very important to keep your head down. He's going to place his hand on your belly and he's going to help you by pulling you around as you kick. Now I'll demonstrate the butterfly kick at full speed. And that concludes our demonstration of the butterfly kick.

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.

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.
