Focus On: Quiver Pulse

You guys. I got the chance to try a workout that is TAKING OVER southern California. It’s like yoga, Zumba, meditation, and strength training all in one: Quiver Pulse!

Quiver pulse

It’s still in the grassroots phase right now, but I was invited to take a special class in a quaint and beautiful studio space:

When I left, my energy was literally buzzing out of my body. 

Here’s what Quiver Pulse is all about:

Quiver Pulse involves isometric holds and slight muscle vibrations. The great thing about it is that you can do it anywhere at anytime; all you need is a bit of space, your own body weight and a focused mind. To Quiver Pulse, you close your eyes and let yourself become in tune with the natural vibrations and energies of the earth. Next, you’ll extend one limb, and start to quiver and pulse this limb to match the surrounding energetic vibrations. I found that if you start off slowly at first, and then increase your pace, it works really well! Feel the pulsie burn!

(If It Fits Your Macros) I’ve received a few requests to talk about macro counting, especially since it’s surged in popularity on Instagram, particularly in the past year or so. You may have seen a picture of a giant donut covered in frosting + sprinkles, or a double-stuffed pizza and the hashtag “IIFYM,” which stands […]

Focus On: Carb Cycling (what is it and how does it work?)

Carb Cycling: what is it, and does it work?

Recently, I got a question about carb cycling and how my eating changes depending on whether I’m in my losing or maintenance mode. There is a lot of hubbub in the fitness world about carb cycling and macro counting, so here’s a little post with my two cents. For those who may be curious about […]

Focus On: SPARKCYCLE

Something about trying a new fitness class makes me so excited. And sore. This is almost always the case, and my legs are still screaming with victory cries after last night’s Sparkcycle class.

I like to write Focus On posts for classes that aren’t available here, like a bit of a fitness daydream. Physique 57, Grit, Buti Fitness, etc. etc. Anyone know of an awesome Shockwave class in San Diego?!  This is  a class I had the opportunity to try once, and I’ve been thinking about it ever […]
