When is the BEST time t...

Those of you who know much about my habits, know that I have always worked out first thing in the morning. I get up at 4:30 to 4:45, and start my workout about 5:30 every day.  This has benefits and drawbacks. I feel the benefits FAR outweigh the drawbacks. Strengths of the Morning...

Doing Doubles

Doing Doubles. I get a lot of questions about doing doubles. “Doubles” are when you do two workouts a day. You may do cardio in the morning and then a lifting routine in the evening. Whatever you are doing, you are doing double… hence the name, Doubles. Sounds like a...

Adjustable Dumbbells fo...

Adjustable dumbbells are the perfect addition to P90X. They are compact, easy to adjust, and offer just about as much resistance as you need. The two main choices out there are Bowflex’s Selecttechs and Powerblocks. There are other brands (LifeSmart, Wieder, Ironmaster, etc), but...

Traveling While Working...

I am fortunate in that my day job does not require me to travel all that often. When I do, it’s usually for a long weekend – 3 or 4 days at the most. And I always know the trip is coming well in advance and I can plan accordingly. What does planning accordingly mean? It means...

Body Types

Best Exercise Modificat...

So you need to modify your pull ups? No problem! This is a right of passage for more people! Pull ups are hard. We can fake our way through Plyo and even just lower some weight on dumbbells for curls or kickbacks. But pull ups, they are the real deal!  As I started last week, I’m...

Best Exercise Modificat...

Modifying exercises is one of the secrets of success people. Not many people can jump into a workout program and do each move or exercise exactly like Tony, Sagi, or Shaun T. Beachbody does a great job of showing many modifications and even has cast members showing you modified moves in...

Calculating your body fat percentage (BF%) is not hard! This a blog from the past, but it’s so important that I want to talk about it again and explain the basics for everyone. One of the most important tools in monitoring your progress is tracking the change in your body fat...
