ROM Coach Tips: Upper Body

One of the great things about owning a ROM is that you get live support from coaches at the fab ROMfab HQ in Hollywood. Here are some upper-body ROM tips I received from ROM Coach Angela after she saw some of my earliest ROM videos:

  • Make sure there is no more than 2 or 3 digit change on the monitor between push & pull.
  • Arms locked when pushing
  • Not pushing forward at all toward the end…
  • If you’re having difficulties, take another 10 pounds off the flywheel
  • Go faster. J
  • Drive it the whole way forward!
  • Don’t have bent arms at all moving forward

These tips have helped my workout considerably.

ROMming Elsewhere: Other Garages, Other Workouts

It’s heartening to know, when ROM-sweating it  in one’s garage in a boiling southern August, that there are others doing the same. Here are two short, effective clips of Eric doing just this. It’s a garage revolution sweeping neighborhoods across the nation…won’t you join us?

The Future of Food

3782585426_4c1db21920If you have not seen the new movie Food, Inc., you should run, not walk – well, you can drive – to the nearest theater where it’s being shown. According to the website:

Food, Inc. filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults… (At the same time) Approximately 1 billion people worldwide do not have secure access to food, including 36 million in the US. National and international food and agricultural policies have helped to create the global food crisis but can also help to fix the system.
