Teasha Jackson posted a topic in Getting StartedAsking here since I’m not being allowed to create a new topic in Nutrition or Thrive. I am assuming that GB is also being affected by AWS Amazon cloud computing service issues. Which is preventing me from logging my Thrive task today. The page doesn’t load completely and goes blank after clicking the check mark. Does this mean no credit and will have to do an additional week of only the same task? Or is there some way to be credited.
Handful of misc questions
Joseph Amburgey posted a topic in Getting StartedThis is a lot, I know. Anybody that takes the time to take a look is greatly appreciated. 1. HS - PE4 - Supine Floor Handstand Flexion with Weighted Bar: What weight should I be aiming for here? I am looking to purchase one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079CZZYPN/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_7?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 Perhaps there is another place I could obtain them more cheaply? 2. I've got a knot or something going on in my abs. I do not believe it is on my rectus, I believe it is either the transverse or obliques. I'm pointing to it below, maybe an inch below my rib cage and pushed into the side of my rectus abdominals. It's been there for months. I've had an ultrasound. Internal organs are doing great. Doctors went with a torn muscle. Now the fact that there is no pain and it just tingles sometimes and muscle spasms on and off during the day, I don't think it is a torn muscle. When I do ab exercises it is the first spot to fatigue. So how on earth do I message my ab effectively? I can't figure out how to apply any real pressure without flexing. ( I am not looking for medical advice, just how do I massage it, if that doesn't do the trick, then I guess it's something else.) Pushing on it with my fingers doesn't seem to work. I can't roll that spot. This wonderful device doesn't work. As soon as I get any pressure on the spot, it just pushes in and I have to flex. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PJ3LSBI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 2. 3. I was reading that deload weeks start in foundation 2. I've for the first time decided to do a deload week with all my foundation 1 movements because many of them have stalled. Any comment on that? I assume it's fine. I do each F1 area twice a week. On another note; I think I'd have most of them if I wasn't carrying what I estimate to be an extra 15 pounds, maybe more. 4. Which brings me to Thrive. I'm interested. Does it come with GB Unlimited? I can always stand to learn more about nutrition, even if I'm 90% of the way there and Thrive gives me the last 10%. I've read it's not heavy on the science, which I enjoy but that's fine. Does it teach me the benefit of what I'm eating and the ideal timing? Will I learn what I need to know in order to adapt my intake accordingly to suit the needs for a particular day? I work concrete construction, so I do a lot of heavy lifting, lots of repetitive motions(shovel, pickaxe) throughout my day. The energy expenditure can be a lot. I've had more trouble loosing BF than in the past because I have to eat more in order to have energy for work. Put on more than a few after getting carpel tunnel release surgery on both hands; long story short, jackhammers are not my friend; and it took me out of the exercise game for almost 7 months. Will Thrive help me to figure out my calorie, macro, micro, vegetable, etc timing and intake to have energy at work and still be able to bang out a full effort workout after work? All while ideally gaining strength, CNS control and dropping the unwanted fat? 5. Does GB Unlimited give me access to everything on the site? Maybe it would be easier to say what is not included?
Female experiences with Thrive
Rebecca Williams posted a topic in NutritionHello everyone, I'm considering doing the thrive program, but noticed that all the testimonials on the website are from men. It's not that I think the nutritional needs are that much different between men and women, but I'd love to hear some feedback from any women that have tried the program? Thanks!!
Thrive and travel
Amanda Chavez posted a topic in NutritionHow compatible is the Thrive nutrition program with travel? I am on the road often and want to know if Thrive is compatiable with this (thankfully temporary lifestyle). Cheers
Thrive Level 1 & GB Foundations Review
William Trask posted a topic in NutritionFundamentals: May 26th thru June 18, 2016 Foundation 1: Started June 13th, 2016 Handstand 1: Started July 12th, 2016 Stretch Series (Front Splits, Thoracic Bridge & Middle Splits): Started June 23rd, 2016 I found Gymnastic Bodies via the Tim Ferriss Podcast. See when I was 12-13 years old my brother and I saw someone do a handstand pushup. We immediately went home and gave it a try. As the oldest, I went first. After arriving in a wall assisted handstand, my brother held my ankles and said "Now try lower your head to the hardwood floor, I'll help you back up." Having essentially no gymnastics background (except 1-yr as a 3rd grader) and laughable upper body strength, I promptly cracked my head on the floor... Ever since that moment, the dream of a handstand push has been there, I just never had the strength or focus on the "how to" attain it. Fast forward a couple decades, I'm about to turn 37, have three kids (8yr, 6yr, and 4yr olds) and a lovely wife, and I listen to @Coach Sommer discuss Gymnastic Bodies with Tim Ferriss. I can't tell you how much this reignited my dream of a handstand pushup! My daughter as any little girl is all about handstands and cartwheels and keeps asking me to try them with her. So I mentally committed to Gymnastic Bodies with a goal of achieving a handstand pushup by the time I turn 40-years-old. Starting with Fundamentals, I quickly became hooked! Thru soccer and cycling one of my limiting factors has always been my lack of mobility/flexibility. I've always wanted to practice stretching or yoga, but never was consistent and thus left with several mobility deficits identified by the Fundamentals program. Wanting to get serious I bought Thrive and Foundation 1. I can't say thank you enough to @Jeff Serven for being strict and methodical by how he allows people to progress thru Level 1 of Thrive! I've tried to eat well but for some reason lacked consistency and something clicked with the Thrive approach! It took awhile to advance thru every step, but my dedication to Gymnastic Bodies and Thrive has been very rewarding! I wanted to publicly express my gratitude for Jeff and Coach for providing a rock solid program! You guys are awesome and have cultivated an awesome community here at Gymnastic Bodies. Additional shoutouts to @Ryan Bailey and @Jon Douglas who have been very helpful thru the forum. Additionally, thanks to the whole GB team that has worked on the newest web update to the program! I really like it!
Can Thrive succeed for students?
Gil Goldman posted a topic in NutritionHi everyone! Thanks to your amazing reviews of the Thrive system and it's benefits, I decided to give it a go! About two years ago I've started attending university abroad, and while it is immensely fun, living in Europe has had a massive impact on my weight. So while your reviews have convinced me that Thrive works, I have a few specific questions regarding how can Thrive be adapted to my life. As the university dormitory only allows use of an oven in the larger, common kitchens, which needs to be reserved a few days in advance, I am usually limited to cooking using a stove and a microwave. Does Thrive rely heavily on using an oven, or could it be circumvented? Student life are messy and unorganized - would it be possible to maintain Thrive even without a rigid, or sometimes even known, schedule? Or must we eat very specific amounts in very specific times? While living in a foreign country has a lot of benefits, transparency is not one of them. Would Thrive work if I am unable to ascertain fully what exactly is in whatever I am required to eat? Meaning, does Thrive rely heavily on eating Grass-fed, Non Gmo, gluten free, lactose free, free range, organic foods, or other random food requirements? Learning the appropriate words to find out how much salt is in this sauce is easy, trying to explain what is grass fed is hard (from experience) Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas! you guys are an inspiration, and I can't wait to get started!
