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.

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.

Fatty Death By A Thousand Cuts

It was a form of torture/execution used by the Chinese and, believe it or not, was used up until the early 1900’s.  I’ll spare you the gory details because I’m guessing you can get the gist by the name alone, but I think we can all agree that this type of punishment is ...

The Most Boring Way To Lose Fat…That Works EVERY TIME

How could I possibly be boring?  Aren’t I living it up with Robin Leach and our caviar dreams?  Points if you know the reference...if you don’t know the reference it’s about a show that predates MTV Cribs by a couple decades, but was far better, yet just as outlandishly ridiculous.
