Working Out

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 05/03/2009

mhwthumbWomen are constantly being pressured by the media and society in general to look pretty, thin, sexy, tonned, fit, within certain proportions, etc.

Well, men are feeling that kind of pressure too more and more nowadays.

However, some (most?) of us can’t afford to go to the gym or hire a personal trainer. That kind of leaves us on our own with trying to shape our body. There is nothing wrong with that, as long as we know what to do and are able to not overdo it, which is usually the biggest risk we run.

The ebook I’m presenting here can be a great aid in with planning your working out routine. It focuses on the major muscular groups – arms, shoulders, chest, abs and lower back, back and legs. Maybe you’ll need to invest in a couple of dumbells or barbells, but you’ll only have to pay for them once. Or you can try and adapt the exercises using other kinds of weights you can easily find at home – some books, bottles, etc.

You can get it here.

Just follow the instructions there, don’t overdo the exercises, don’t add more weight than specified in the book, and stop immediately if you feel any pain.
Mind you, you should see your doctor before starting any exercise routine on your own. I will not be held responsible if any harm should arise from following this book’s exercices.

(If you like the ebook, remember to buy it afterwards. Support the authors)

Goodbye hair

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 26/02/2009

baldman372readyAre you spending hours in front of the mirror pitying yourself? Is it starting to take you less and less time to count all your hair threads? Do you feel like you are losing your charm due to the loss of the hairstyle that made you famous some years ago? Are you in denial and wondering why the world has brought such an injustice over you?

Well, you can stop the drama now. No, I am not going to offer a miracle cure for baldness. But I am going to provide you with a link where you can get some scientific information on hair loss, its causes, the different kinds of hair loss and the various treatments available.

It is worth the read, not only to clear some of the myths we usually hear about hair loss, but also to help us understand what’s behind this “monster” that scares a great number of men. It may even give you a different point of view on the subject and leave you with the feeling that hair loss doesn’t necessarily mean lack of charm, sex appeal, handsomeness, or personality.

Take a look at it here.
