Sprint Interval Training ( SIT )

Short but hard training for good fitness. Maximum result with minimum effort.

No need to go to the gym or get bored by long training. The same result can be achieved in 7-minutes time.

 It's short and according to US study ( title of the study: „High-Intensity Circuit Training Using Body Weight: Maximum Results With Minimal Investment“ ) very efficient fitness program.

You only need one chair and wall. You can do it in your panties or pijamas.

 It takes only 7 minutes of your time and 12 tasks ( 25 seconds for each task ) and with 10 seconds pauses between each task.

 The US study has concluded that too much training is not heathy for most people.

Let's go. ( or watch VIDEO )

1. Jumping jacks Total body
2. Wall sit Lower body
3. Push-up Upper body
4. Abdominal crunch Core
5. Step-up onto chair Total body
6. Squat Lower body
7. Triceps dip on chair Upper body
8. Plank Core
9. High knees/running in place Total body
10. Lunge Lower body
11. Push-up and rotation Upper body
12. Side plank Core




The conclusion:

HICT seems to be an efficient means of exercise to help decrease body fat, improve insulin sensitivity, and improve V˙O2max and muscular fitness. As the hectic pace of today’s corporate world continues to infringe on the amount of time individuals have for exercise, these types of programs can offer a good option to help busy individuals improve their health and recover from stress via exercise.

The practicality and accessibility of HICT using body weight as resistance makes this exercise program a viable option for the masses. Individuals who previously believed that they did not have the time for exercise can now trade total exercise time for total exercise effort and get similar or better health and fitness benefits.

Banken zittern

Schade auf mein Deutsch :)

Griechenland wahlt heute den neuen Parlament.

Der Spitzenkandidat ist ein Linkspartei vorsitzende Alexis Tzipras.

Die ganze Europa, nicht nur die Deutschen, warten um zu sehen wie dieser Junge regieren wird.

Mir selbst, dieser Man scheint wie damals serbische oppositions Fuhrer Zoran Djindjic.

Grosse Hoffnungen haben den Griechen von diesem Mann, aba es wird sehr schwer Ihm zu realisiren alles was er verschprochen hatte, meiner Meinung nach.

The course about good writing

Take the course ''Writing with flair '' on udemy.com which is instructed by an experienced editor and writer Shani Raja.

The course is currently deeply discounted and it will cost you only $ 10. The normal price of the course is around $ 270.

The instruction is given through short videos. There's a place for discussion with other students in forum-like environment.

Seems to me, it's great source for learning distinctive and stylish writing.

Problems with a script

Troubled text


When you are writing movie script, there are numerous problems you can encounter. Here are some :


The story begins too late in the script

The scenes are void of meaningful conflict

The script has a by-the-numbers execution

The story is too thin

The villains are cartoonish, evil-for-the-sake-of-evil

The character logic is muddy

The female part is underwritten

The narrative falls into a repetitive pattern

The conflict is inconsequential, flash-in-the-pan

The protagonist is a standard issue hero

The script favors style over substance

The ending is completely anti-climactic

The characters are all stereotypes

The script suffers from arbitrary complexity

The script goes off the rails in the third act

The script's questions are left unanswered

The story is a string of unrelated vignettes

The plot unravels through convenience/contrivance

The script is tonally confused

The protagonist is not as strong as [he or she needs to] be

New Music

Recently I bought new guitar. I try to listen music whenever I have time to do so.

Back to the past when I did music almost every day for consideable time.
Try to unearth some new music and artist.

So, here's what I've been listening lately:

Valerie June
Pushin' Against a Stone

Jack White
Blunderbuss

Mazedonian Ethnic Music

Exploring music with knowledge:
Practice, ask, desire, get it from yourself, walk around it, experiment, teach, read, write, listen, observe, put in order, define, combine, reason.

The Lean Startup - Visual Summary

2.4.13

Experiment goes with introspection

Introspection is not enough

Experimental phase is important. We do experiments to test our hypothesis.
We need to work hard and have fun with our pilot program or beta phase.

a.) to test our assumtions, whether they are valid or not

b.) to see the effects, results and statistics

c.) to mark advantages and disadvatages

d.) to do split testing, see which assumtions are better

e.) to observe all related information, get explanation and reach conclusions

f.) to rank ideas according to success criteria.

If we fail, we must fail fast. If we're right, we must put our resources behind right idea and multiply.

Simple formula: observation --> explanation --> conclusion.

First, we do introspection in the form of white paper or short review / report and then move to experimentation.

The last step is presentation of the findings and reaching of consensus.

Go or no-go.

( note: this should be our corporate memo )
