Builds Up Your Whole Body

Squatting is not just about improving your length strength or muscle mass. Because of the way our body works, you are releasing testosterone and HGH into your body naturally when you squat regularly. And when those chemicals in your body at a higher level, you will gain muscle quicker through your other workouts.

Real-Life Activities Are Easier

Squatting is one of the most functional exercises you can perform, because it strengthens muscles that you will use in the real world.

Your metabolism gets a boost each time you gain a pound of muscle. Each pound of muscle equals roughly 50 more calories burned each day. Add ten pounds of muscle to your body, and you are burning an extra 500 calories each day with no extra effort!

Considering A Conceal And Carry Permit

Personal safety is important to most people, even to the point that businesses will be inspected to ensure that their work environment is as safe as possible. Safety is a number one priority for almost any establishment, so why should it be any different for your own well-being? If you have ever been caught in a compromising and dangerous situation where you have felt defenseless, applying for a conceal and carry permit so that you can properly defend yourself and your loved ones from any potential danger.

What To Consider –

In order to attain a CCW (carrying a concealed weapon) license, assuming that such a license is available in your area, you must undergo an extensive background check process and complete required educational courses that inform you on safe and responsible firearm ownership and use. Glocks and other similar firearms make for great handguns that are easy to carry and hard to damage.  Keep in mind that you cannot “conceal and carry” anywhere you are, even if you have the permit. You absolutely should never bring your firearm into a hospital or school, it makes for too many unnecessary risks and it is unlikely that you would be forced to use it regardless. 

Don’t Let It Go To Your Head –

Once you attain your CCW, it is imperative that you remember that firearm use is a last resort. If you are not out of any other options to defuse a dangerous situation and you must resort to using your firearm, retain the mindset that it is a weapon and should not be used on a whim. Consider every possibility when assessing a situation. Avoid a “gung-ho” attitude, you are not law enforcement, let trained professionals handle danger.

Glocks

A CCW is a great way to maintain safety to you and your family when traveling. You never know when something could happen and it’s important that you’re prepared.

18 Holes Of Hilarity

If you love golf, you likely can’t understand how some people can call it boring.  For lovers of classic comedy, however, there’s one TV episode that made the game of golf the funniest thing in the world.  If you’re a golfer or a golfing fan, “The Golf Game” from I Love Lucy is unforgettably funny.  If golf course business services had to cater to players who used these rules, the business would never be the same.

The episode is about Lucy and Ethel insisting on tagging along with Ricky and Fred when they play golf, and the guys making up the most ridiculous rules in the world to discourage them.  The gals, knowing nothing about the game, take these rules seriously-to hilarious effect.  The “rules” include:

golf course business services

1.    Checking the direction of the wind at the beginning of a hole, and choosing which club to use by swinging them around to determine which one feels best.

2.    Always saying “May I?” before your first stroke, at risk of a penalty of losing 10 points and hitting the ball with your next stroke after taking a giant step with only your right leg.

3.    If you don’t hit the ball in three strokes, do a “dormie” by picking up the ball and throwing it under your left leg.

4.    If you touch the ball outside of doing a “dormie,” you get a “mashie”-in which the opposing player mashes your ball into the earth.

The “rules” go on and get more convoluted and ridiculous as they go along, and Lucy and Ethel believe them-until an actual golf pro, Jimmy Demaret, shows up and sets them right-and helps them get even with the guys.  It’s fun to imagine the game actually being played this way, but all things considered it’s probably best that the I Love Lucy rules are left to TV characters with gullible spouses.
