Dealing with an injury or set back when you are working out is hopefully something you won’t have to do. But over time, it is definitely a possibility. So many of us have old injuries that like to pop up when we start getting in shape and asking more of our bodies. I have dealt...

Failure.  We all hate it!  We hate to fail.  We much prefer success.  But guess what?  You can’t have success unless you make yourself vulnerable to failure.  Do you want success with your P90X / Insanity MAX 30 / Body Beast transformation?  You have to be willing to push yourself...

Muscle Actions: Concent...

I still like seeing that old Planet Fitness commercial with a bodybuilder getting a tour of the gym. The employee asks the man what he does for a living. His response is, “I lift things up and put them down.” It’s his response for everything! Now lifting may seem that easy but...
