Otagenki Panel at Anime Los Angeles!


Get Genki, LA Ota-zoku!

I will be doing a panel at Anime Los Angeles about first steps into a healthier lifestyle. I will hopefully have some friends with me to talk about their experiences starting a health and fitness regime, and I’ll be providing basic ideas you can incorporate into your life. And no, you will not become a jock doing this!

All the details are here…


…or on the Anime Los Angeles 10 Guidebook app, or on the Anime Los Angeles 10 schedule PDF.


Stu’s returned with more about stretching

Another Super 40 video has come out, and this is another one about the very important task of stretching before exercise. I neglect this sort of thing at my peril, you shouldn’t. And of course, since this is in Japanese, it’s another helpful lesson in comprehending spoken Japanese for those who are interested in learning that. However, the video is pretty much self-explanatory even without knowing Japanese. This one shows a way of doing a hamstring stretch without endangering your knees.

To celebrate the fact my new local gym is almost open…

…here’s a great guide to gym etiquette from one of my favorite sites, Greatist.



How to: replace dessert with an extra power-up!

Anyway, I love Greatist.com. Awesome articles, great advice. Here’s an example of one of their cool articles to check out. No, you don’t have to deprive yourself of a little something-something after dinner, you just have to get smarter about it! Check it out.
