Fit Like Joe De Sena

This next unbelievable individual is the one and only Joe De Sena.

The first thing that blew me away was his creation of the “Death Race”. After researching into what this race he had created was all about, I immediately gained some respect for him.

This beast of a challenge literally scares the hell out of me and I invite everyone to go check out the preview video that explains what goes down in the Death Race.

From past experiences, I’d already heard of his other creation, the Spartan Race. I’ve even considered attempting this race when it comes annually to Mont-Tremblant, QC.

What we can learn from Joe De Sena is to always be accomplishing new goals and tasks that you set for yourself. This way, you will never stop growing and never lose the will to continue. And if you ever find yourself struggling to finish, remind yourself of his favourite quote: “It could always be worse”.

Today’s entry is a short one as I wanted to ask my readers who they think I should write about next. Additionally, I started up an Instagram account for motivation/learning purposes – @learningeveryweek.

Aerobic vs. Anaerobic Exercise

I was running up a large flight of stairs earlier today and a friend of mine corrected me after I had said that I was performing my daily aerobic exercise.

After looking this up I found out that there is a difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise. The main difference by definition is that aerobic is the type of exercise where your muscles have oxygen to produce all the energy they need to perform where as there is a lack of supply of oxygen under anaerobic.

The lack of supply of oxygen from the exercise means that it has a tougher time converting  your sugar into energy.

In my case, I had a large increase in pace that was faster than my body could sustain and because I was sprinting it is considered anaerobic. I was becoming fatigued very quickly. This is not necessarily a worse form of exercise but it depends what you are training for.
