Maddox hopes to set world bench press record

Owensboro’s Julius Maddox is set to break the world record for raw bench press this weekend in Corpus Christi, Texas. He will be competing against upwards of 100 participants at The Battle of the Bay for a chance to build upon his already impressive resume.

Maddox is presently ranked number one in the world for raw bench press and feels confident that he can bring the world record back to Owensboro. The current record is 738.2 pounds and is owned by Russian powerlifter, Kirll Sarychev.

Only five people in history have bench pressed over 700 pounds and Owensboro is home to one of them. Maddox’s current personal record stands at 716.5 pounds, but he is attempting 740 pounds this weekend. He is confident that his training regimen has him adequately prepared for the task.

His training regimen consists of 2- to 3-hour intense training sessions four or five days per week. In addition to this, he maintains a high protein diet and consumes up to two gallons of water per day.

“The atmosphere is crazy [at competitions], there are a lot of people pushing you,” Maddox said. “It’s electric, there’s not a word that could describe the feeling.”

Weightlifting was initially a means of managing stress for Maddox who at the age of 25 was struggling with recovery from drugs. Maddox relied heavily on the organization, Friends of Sinners, where he is presently employed, to assist him in turning his life around.

Breaking this record would be the peak of Maddox’s bench pressing career, but he has no intention of slowing down. He looks forward to celebrating this feat with the entire community.

“It’s a huge goal that I’ve set for myself,” Maddox said. “For years I’ve struggled with my identity and who I was, and at one point I found my identity in Christ. This is a new life for me, and with it, came several goals.”

Maddox hopes to continue to use weightlifting as a platform to share the Gospel and his story of redemption.

“It’s my goal to encourage kids to have a healthy lifestyle and to make decisions that will lead to them to success,” Maddox said.

While his relationship with Christ, his strong work ethic and his relationships in the community have led directly to his success, there is one more person he did not want to exclude.

“At the end of the day this is a huge blessing and it allows me to pay my mom back for all that she has done for me,” Maddox said. “I’m very grateful for her.”

However, amidst all of this, a lot of us forget about the woman who made this happen… Who went through it all to bring forth a new life. This capture reminds us of exactly that! Perhaps, the photographer was able to deliver a powerful message about postpartum through the image. Know more here.

Photographer’s Raw Capture of a Woman Just After Delivery Gives Powerful Postpartum Message

Alex Michelle, who is reportedly from Florida, in her Facebook page called Alex Michelle Photography, posted the monochrome photograph of a woman, who just gave birth, and it instantly strikes the difference to the viewers. The image from the inside of a birthing room focuses on the exhausted mother after delivery. Alex, through the image wants to remind “we tend to forget our mamas when babies are around (…)… what about mama?”

“I saw the pain in your eyes”

“In the hustle of the room I peered over at my friend bent over in pain,” wrote the Michelle, who chose to capture her friend just after she gave birth. She wrote, “baby had just been born and everyone was surrounding the miracle that happened before our eyes, “ she stated “but I was especially in awe of her. I saw you, mama. I saw the pain in your eyes and in your face and in your body.”

Alex’s post continued with the long narrative, where she focuses more on understanding the needs of the women who just after gave birth. She questioned, what does a mother really need? Answering which she wrote, “someone to watch the baby so they can shower, meals dropped off, house cleaners to stop by and help out, solid childcare for her other children, heating pads and coffee, maybe fast food.”

The post conveys that it may be easy to forget the mothers, since how strong they are, but, they do need the “extra hands more than ever” as they enter the fourth trimester. Michelle’s post is also a redirection to the reality, where new mothers in numbers, fail to show up for their first postpartum appointment to doctors.

On Facebook, the post received a lot of comments (18 thousand, precisely) and was shared 1.7 lakh times. A number of women revealed how their family members stood beside them when they needed. One wrote- “When both my sons were born when my dad came in the room,” the mum wrote, adding that her father entered the room, he came first to her and planted a kiss, asked her how she was, told her she did a ‘good job’ and ‘I’m proud of you,’ she mentioned in the comment, adding “It was so sweet, I’ll never ever forget that!” The other comment read- “Thank you for this reminder.”

Postpartum Care is Understated

A new survey by Orlando Health found that mother’s, after entering their fourth trimester (the time after giving birth), had their own concerns for health often neglected. According to the survey, more than a quarter of new mums didn’t have plans to look after themselves, after delivery, according to the source. It also stated that more than 40% of new mothers felt depressed or overwhelmed, and anxious after birth.

The OB/GYN at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, Megan Gray, MD, was quoted, about the lack of postpartum awareness, as saying-

“The fourth trimester can be difficult and overwhelming for women as their bodies go through physical and emotional changes, and this time deserves the same support and attention as the first three trimesters.”

Megan Gray, MD via eurekalert.org

Gray, in the survey, specified that with a newborn at home, it might seem apparently impossible to think about one’s (new mums) own health, nonetheless, for the baby’s sake, mother’s must take care of themselves. She suggested that taking through the issues they are going through “can help women realize that they’re not alone and that what they’re feeling is okay,” Gray notes, according to the report.

Yoga teacher drinks own PEE every morning and claims it’s cured fibromyalgia and cleared her skin

A SUCCESSFUL businesswoman claims that the secret behind her flawless skin is drinking her own wee every morning before exfoliating and moisturising her face with it.

Every day, Kayleigh Oakley, 33, downs half a pint of urine on waking before dabbing it onto her skin – after which, she has a shower.

 Kayleigh drinks half a pint of her own urine every day before smothering it all over her face

As well as helping her achieve clear skin, she claims that drinking wee has cured a lifetime of health complications.

Kayleigh has battled with a low immune system for years, having been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease (an autoimmune system illness) at just 15.

Two years later, she was also told that she had chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, which causes pain all over the body and turns even the smallest tasks into a nightmare.

“I was ill a lot of the time and life felt like really hard work,” Kayleigh said.

 She claims the unusual routine has helped to 'cure' her of her chronic illnesses

“If someone became unwell around me, my immune system would be so weak that I would get sick, too.

“It was so draining. If I did any strenuous activity I would be in bed for week, and life became pretty miserable.”

Two years ago, Kayleigh, who runs an education business and teaches yoga, discovered urine therapy.

“I was studying natural healing and medicine and was fascinated by the success stories other people shared about it,” she said.

 It was only after researching alternative medicine that she found urine therapy

“I had been on a long journey, trying to improve my health. I changed my diet and lifestyle, trying to introduce more holistic things and not taking any pharmaceutical medicines.

“I heard that urine can reset the immune system, promote general good health, and is good for the skin.

“It is also an ancient yogic technique, so thought I would give it a go.”

Now, the yogi pees into a glass every morning and drinks the mid-stream of the urine – discarding the first and last parts of the flow which, she says, contains toxins and sediment.

 After discarding the beginning and end, Kayleigh consumes the mid-flow stuff - and says that her morning pee is most beneficial

“The morning drink contains the most hormones and nutrients.

“It doesn’t taste of much. It’s a bit salty and you can taste some minerals, but because I have a vegan diet, it isn’t strong.

Woman proponent of urine therapy rubs wee into her face and says it’s great for keeping her skin looking healthy and youthful


DRINK UP How much water should you drink in a heatwave and why is the colour of pee important?


“I have never been horrified by the thought of drinking it and my friends and family accept what I do. We are conditioned to think drinking urine is unclean, but it’s just a sterile filtration of the blood.”

She said that she views drinking urine as medicine.

 'We are conditioned to think drinking urine is unclean, but it’s just a sterile filtration of the blood.'

“We don’t think twice about taking drugs bought over the counter, with side-effects, yet urine has no side-effects and it works really well.

“A lot of expensive skin brands contain urea, which is excreted in urine, so I have also got a really expensive product for free.”

And Kayleigh says that she’s living proof that urine therapy works.

Within a few days of her bizarre regime which also included following a raw, vegan diet and doing regular yoga, she felt greatly improved.

 Along with her urine drinking, she's also been following a raw vegan diet and doing lots of yoga which she says has helped relieve her of her ailments

“I had an extreme amount of energy, it was amazing,” she said.

“Urine works really well to clear your skin up, if you have any hormonal issues with it. So, I use it as a moisturiser, just putting some on a cotton wool and popping it on my skin before I jump in the shower. It moisturises and helps exfoliate too.”


PAIN RELIEF This one exercise could help you manage fibromyalgia – the same chronic pain condition suffered by Lady Gaga


While husband Tristan, 39, isn’t a convert to the practice, Kayleigh maintains that he supports her choice.

She said that she now needs less sleep – waking up naturally at 5am without an alarm.

 Although Kayleigh's husband isn't a pee drinker himself, he supports her lifestyle choices

“A combination of my diet and yoga practice, as well as drinking urine every day, has helped to cure me.

“We have an epidemic of treating the symptoms, not the cause. I have tried to look at my body as a whole, see what’s missing and lacking due to nutrient deficiencies. This means I can then start treating it a bit more holistically.

“If I hadn’t gone down the path of healing myself with different therapies, I would be on more medication. There’s a lot of misinformation out there, but you won’t know if drinking urine will help until you try it.”

IS THERE ANY NUTRITIONAL VALUE IN WEE?

THE Sun’s nutritionist Amanda Ursell said there is no nutritional value in drinking your own wee.

“You are weeing out the excess stuff that your body doesn’t need, after all the goodness has been absorbed,” she said.

“And your kidneys have very carefully filtered it out, so why would you then go and drink it?”

Amanda said that surviving on little else other than urine would put people at risk of serious nutrient deficiencies.

She added: “Every nutrient, vitamin and mineral has a corresponding deficiency disease if you don’t get enough of it.”

So if you are using urine to replace foods, you’re likely to suffer a whole range of health problems rather than curing any ailments.

But the experts aren’t so convinced.

The Sun’s nutritionist Amanda Ursell has previously spoken out against drinking urine as a health cure or weight loss aid, after one dad claimed that drinking two glasses of his own wee a day for six years helped him shed eight stone.

“You are weeing out the excess stuff that your body doesn’t need, after all the goodness has been absorbed,” she said.

 The experts aren't quite as convinced of urine therapy's benefits as Kayleigh

“And your kidneys have very carefully filtered it out, so why would you then go and drink it?”

Aisling Pigott is a dietician and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, and she said that there’s no evidence to support the claims that urine therapy has any health benefits.

“There is no evidence or advice which would encourage anybody to drink their own urine. The body, in particular, the kidneys, does an effective job at removing toxins and excretes urine.

“Therefore, drinking this again is not beneficial, could potentially be harmful and could cause infection.”

There’s been no serious research into urine therapy, with kidney specialists saying that drinking too much of it could have the same effect on the body as kidney failure.

Professor Henry Woo, a urological surgeon at the University of Sydney, said: “There is absolutely no scientific evidence to suggest that urine therapy has any therapeutic value.

“Those who drink their own urine do nothing more than make a mockery of themselves.”

Selangor Health Dept reminds consumers not to drink raw milk | Malaysia

SHAH ALAM, June 15 — The Selangor Health Department has reminded consumers not to buy and drink raw or unpasteurised milk that is not properly processed.

Its director Datuk Dr Khalid Ibrahim said the reminder was issued following the cases of goat milk from a farm in Pulau Indah, near here, was detected to have contained Brucella bacteria.

“Samples taken from the farm found that the milk contained Brucella bacteria as well as violating Section 13 (1) of the Food Act 1983.

“The incident involves eight people who showed the symptoms after drinking goat’s milk from the farm recently,” he said in a statement today.

Dr Khalid said the raw milk intake was risky among individuals with low levels of immune system especially the elderly, pregnant women and children.

He said the raw milk could be contaminated due to pollution or infection in animals that then could cause illness to humans.

The milk composition provided a good medium for the growth of various harmful bacteria including Brucella spp and Mycrobacterium spp, he said.

“When buying raw milk, make sure to properly boil it first before drinking. Consumers are advised to drink pasteurised milk such as those with the ultra-heat treatment or ultra-high temperature treatment (UHT) apart from taking note of the storage method and expiry date,” he added.

Dr Khalid said if consumers showed symptoms associated with the consumption of raw milk, they were advised to seek treatment at nearby clinic immediately.

He also warned sellers and milk producers to comply with the requirements as stipulated under Regulation 51 of the Food Hygiene Regulations 2009 that prohibits the sale of unprocessed milk and to adhere to the prescribed method. — Bernama
