5 Ways To Lose 5 Pounds (or more) In 5 Days

I am a very impatient person. When I order something from Amazon I want it on my doorstep that afternoon. When I make up my mind on what I want for dinner, I don’t want to wait for it to be prepared. If I think up a project to start at home, I want it done that weekend, which also means I usually screw something up. I also like to know ways to improve my body in very short periods of time. I’m assuming you ...

5 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight

I have a big, meaty article for you today so I’m going to skip the warm and fuzzies and just get right to it. Some people struggle with their weight loss, and some struggle mightily. It can be confusing as hell.  You think you’re doing all the right things, but the waist isn’t shrinking and the pants aren’t feeling baggy, or the muscles aren’t “popping” the way you thought they would be by now.

The 2 Biggest Mistakes Of Weight Loss

Mistakes… We all make ‘em, although some of us shove our heads in the sand, while kicking our legs like a 2-year old going through a temper tantrum in the grocery store, because we refuse to admit we make mistakes… … Especially with our diets.

Jungle Gym XT and Diet Support From Family Q&A Session

So Nolan turned 2 last week, and that really freaked me out. It doesn’t seem like 2 years ago that he graced this world with his presence (too haughty?).  I can still vividly remember everything about that day - how nervous, yet incredibly excited I was to have another child. It’s crazy how fast time goes. One minute you’re holding your newborn, the next you’re chasing him around the house because he has yo ...

Simple Tip To Stronger, More Defined Arms

I’m a dude, and as a dude I can say that dudes love to train their arms. We all want bigger, stronger and more defined arms. Any guy who tells you differently is lying. I can also tell you that every single lady I’ve worked with has wanted better arms.  She hasn’t wanted bigger arms, but she’s wanted stronger, more toned arms. Any lady who told me differently… ...wasn’t telling the whole truth and I usually ...

How The One Spot Theory Can Get Rid Of Your Stubborn Fat

Hey! Quick question... Have you ever tried to write an article while your kids bury you in Lego's? No? I don't recommend it, because that's what's happening to me right now. Anyway, I have another one of my fancy pants theories about weight loss, and this one revolves around just one teeny, tiny thing... Let’s call this the “One Spot” theory. One of key points in teaching someone how to squat is getting the ...

How To Start A Diet

Another wild and wooly week on the home front, and another awesome week of interaction with awesome folks like you! No stories this week, not because nothing interesting happened, but my brain isn’t firing on all cylinders, which probably means I need to take a nap. Oh well...nap here I come! But first, this week’s Q&A… Q:  “I need your help with a diet.  I have dieted before, lots of times, but want so ...

Do This BEFORE Your Workout

Did you do last week’s assignment?  Click here if you missed it… This week’s Assignment is very similar to last week, but we’re going to flip it.  I’m going to ask you to do a mini-circuit BEFORE your regular workout and am only giving you two categories - Core/Abs and Metabolic. Why? Because I said so. Kidding aside, it does have its purpose.  I’ve used this technique with a few of my clients (and most did ...
