The Secret To Lasting Fat Loss

Let’s dive into your brain today. We’re not going for the surface stuff either, we’re going deep down into the wrinkly crevices where all those deep, dark secrets hide… … Those secrets you hope no one ever finds out about like that time you broke one of your mom’s precious Christmas ornaments and tried to fix it with gobs of super glue, or that time you wore the same shirt two years in a row for pictures (I ...

Is Breakfast The Biggest Hoax In Weight Loss?

Hey! I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, which can be a killer on your back, and just boring, so whenever I can I’ll plop myself down on the couch, prop my feet up, and sift through my inbox catching up on my replies, as well as reading the people I subscribe to. Note:  I know sitting on the couch is just as bad, and probably much, much worse, than sitting at a desk, but it does feel like you get to p ...

How To Get Rid Of Your Stomach Fat…FOREVER!

Bright and early this morning I received an interesting question. Well, it wasn’t too bright, it was actually quite dark, but still early...too damn early. My client asked, “Ed, what can I eat to get rid of this stomach fat?” He was also grabbing big hunks of fat with both hands and shaking it, as if I didn’t know he, in fact, had a pillow sitting on top of his abs. The question wasn’t odd, or even one that ...

Fat Blasting Workout Finishers

Hey!  Woof, I don’t know about you, but we had a crazy packed weekend that all culminated with Andrea, Maren and I watching a collegiate gymnastics meet yesterday afternoon. Two things immediately came to mind… 1. Gymnasts are amazing.  I’m always in awe when watching gymnasts flip and fling their bodies all over the place (even when they face-plant!) 2. Hot dogs still taste good, but only for like 30 secon ...

Diet Books and Essential Fatty Acids

Imagine it’s 15 years ago and you’re hanging out with me on the last few days of my illustrious high school career… A high school career littered with athletic mediocrity, although a huge hunger for learning the ins and outs of workouts and a true love and passion for training; and maybe a few mishaps and run ins with areas we’ll leave unmentioned (although most...most...were fun ;) ). You’ll also discover ...

How To Beat Workout Suckitis

So yesterday’s workout was not fun. Actually, “not fun” doesn’t begin to describe it. It wasn’t that the workout was too tough, or that I ramped the intensity up, I just didn’t “feel” it.  I was getting tired too quickly, wasn’t able to use the same amount of intensity and it felt like I was walking through quick sand. Have you ever felt like that during a workout? It happens to me from time to time and I k ...

Want Better Abs? Use This Workout

A number of weeks ago I shared a couple videos using one of my favorite tools, the carpet slider.  If you didn’t see those videos, click here. Another great way to use the sliders, or Valslides, is when working your abs. They’re great for making exercises like Mountain Climbers, and a few of the Plank Extension variations a bit tougher. Last week I used sliders for the abs portion of my workout, specificall ...

Don’t Let Dogma Prevent You From Real Results

Dogma.  Aside from being the title of a movie not often seen, is also a dirty word… ...at least in my trainer-brain. Dogma usually leads to anger, finger-pointing and a ‘holier than thou’ mentality that can bring you legions of fans and followers, but also usually makes you look like a total tool. I’m speaking in the fitness and nutrition world of course, although dogma in any circle usually brings the same ...
