In addition to building grand palaces, in what other ways did absolute rulers use the vast wealth?

In addition to building grand palaces, in what other ways did absolute rulers use the vast wealth the accumulated?

How did they use their wealth in the 16th century?

many of them used their wealth to finance wars. In fact in the 16th century, war was the number 1 spending item for most monarchs, it was an extremely costly affair as they had to pay for the soldiers, their food and weapons/ horses etc.

Other spending involved donations to churches, monastaries etc, and good old fashioned parties.

Well you’ll be more hydrated and will have more energy. You might also want to start jogging or biking, you’ll see a huge difference in energy levels. =)

What are some fitness workouts to do at home?

I am looking for some fitness workouts to do at home that dont require any equipment. I already do push ups, sit ups, elbow dips, crunches and a few others. Are there any other exercises i can do similar to those?

Hmm, the ideal thing to do, providing you want to stay indoors, would be to get a pullup bar. I can’t see how you’d get a balanced training program without including any pull exercise.

I suggest getting a pullup bar, and starting some form of strength training routine. You don’t need weights for the upper body to get a strength workout, but for the lower body, once you master pistol squats for high reps (10-15) you’re really going to want to add some resistance. For the upper body, I recommend starting with two different isometric exercises; one pull and one push. The pull exercise could be front lever progression, or back lever progression. For pushing, I’d only recommend planche progression. Perform sets of the neccessary progressions (Link at the end from where I follow my advice from ;)) for a total of 60 seconds, so if you can hold a tuck planche for 5 seconds, do 20 x 3 seconds.

I’d obviously recommend pistol squats, (Squats on one leg) since you don’t want to lift heavy weight around. Build up to a good umber of them (I personally built up to 5 sets of 10 before moving on). However, once you can easily do those numbers, it’s more endurance work and won’t get you results as good, although it’s definately not a bad thing to do. I’d suggest finding something to lift whilst doing them after that point :)

I’d also recommend including two "dynamic" exercises. For a beginner, pullups and proper dips are a good start. Once you master them, you can begin decreasing the leverage, without adding weight of course. You could progress from dips to one arm pushups, handstand pushups, or dare I say one arm handstand pushups if you train for long enough. For pullups, you could do uneven pullups (Assisting arm grabs a towel wrapped around the bar as low as possible), and once you get good at them at with your arm really low down, you could work one arm negatives, and eventually one arm pullups.

For optimum results, you want to be working on strength. Strength has a high translation over to endurance, so you won’t lose any of the numbers you’ve built up with those easier exercises. Isometircs are straightforward; 60 seconds total hold per exercise for two exercises. For pistols and dynamic upper body stuff, you want to be working on 3-5 sets of 3-5 repetitions, apart from that I’d recommend building up to the aforementioned numbers for pistols first.

Crunches and sit-ups are quite useless exercises when it comes to working out. There’s nothing more I really need to say. Pushups and elbow dips are a good start if you find them hard, but I’m sure you find them quite easy by now, so I’d definately give the exercises I suggested a go, to see if you like them :)

Finally, i’d like to say that I don’t want to force you to do anything you don’t want to do, I’m merely giving some advice I’ve learnt that works best for me, and a lot of other people I know. If you don’t enjoy working out like that, then find something you do enjoy! Exercise isn’t something you should slave away at, it should be a constant adventure :) Personally, I hate exercising indoors because I find it boring, so I do my strength workout outside. I also explore the woods around my school, mountain bike, and swim. Find something you like, and go for it!

Sorry for the length, but the question you asked deserved a thorough answer :) You’re already trying to get fit, which is more than I can say for most people. Good luck with your training!

Wealth Building- Forex Trading- What are the Risks

FOREX TRADING- What are you Risks:

Every single investment comes with some level of risk. We have all seen the odd bank go under which has quiet often being seen as a ‘safe’ investment.  While forex trading there is the risk of loss in trading off-exchange forex contracts can be substantial. It can sometimes be greater than the initial investment when guaranteed stop losses are not in place. Pleas make sure you are using a broker that offers guaranteed stops, click on this link for a recommendation Best Forex Broker. So if you are considering participating in this market, you should understand some of the risks associated with this product so you can make an informed decision before you start trading. So Trader Beware.  What does come with higher risk, that’s right higher returns.

As shown above if you are considering trading foreign currency trading there is that element of high level of risk and may not be suitable for all customers. If you cannot take a loss, do yourself a favor and don’t TRADE, as no matter how brilliant of a trader you are you cannot pick the market 100% of the time.

Money Management:

If you have a solid money management plan in place this can help to reduce the risk of forex trading. So when you start trading you should only use funds to speculate in forex trading that you are prepared to loss, or any type of highly speculative investment for that matter, are funds that represent risk capital fore example funds you can afford to lose without affecting your financial situation. So the day to day money that you require to live on, don’t trade with that. There are other reasons why forex trading may or may not be an appropriate investment for you, and they are highlighted below.

This can be a volatile market and it can move against you very quickly. Also remember you are trading with leverage, in some cases up to 400:1 so make sure you use leverage that you are comfortable with.

You have just blown the stack, lost it all that how fast this market can move.

When you start trading, you are required to open the account with a deposit of money (often referred to as a security deposit or margin, which is what you leverage agains) with your forex dealer. This will then allow you to order or simple terms buy or sell an off-exchange forex contract. Above we showed with the leverage (up to 400:1), a relatively small amount of money can enable you to hold a forex position worth many times the account value. So $1000 can be leverage up to $400,000 so it doesn’t take much of movement to lose the initial $1000.  The smaller the deposits in relation to the underlying value of the contract, the greater the leverage. If the price moves in an unfavorable direction, high leverage can produce large losses in relation to your initial deposit. In fact, even a small move against your position may result in a large loss, including the loss of your entire deposit. This is why using a broker that offers guaranteed stops is paramount. THIS MUST BE ONE OF YOUR TRADING RULES: NO EXCEPTION.

Now there is also the flip side to Forex Trading, if you get the trade direction correct it can result in major gains. Maybe this is why we all love Forex Trading.

Now if you have a great trade and make great profits from forex trading, do not get overconfident. If you become over confident it can be dangerous. Also make sure that you do not overtrade remember the currency market is open 156 hours per week, so don’t panic if you miss one trade. If you exit a trade you should not automatically re enter a trade.

Make sure that when you are trading that you have your rules, stick them, follow them. The forex market is doesn’t work on a popularity basis, so need to ask family and friends their opinion on the trade it will only confuse things.

Forex trading can be very rewarding but make sure you go in with your eyes open, as 90% of traders will go broke, mainly through the above reasons. It is always advisable to get some level of knowledge before you start out in the market. There are a host of forex education courses available. The CFD FX Report has recently reviewed a lot of them, and on our homepage is a company that we believe to be outstanding. A lot of students have come out making over 300 pips per week.

Please though do not spend thousands of dollars on these courses as quiet often they don’t guarantee success and a course of a few hundred dollars such as the course above is normally better.
