Listen To Your Body

“Listen to your body”.  Chances are, you’ve heard that phrase often if you’ve been working on a nutrition plan to reach your goals.  I even use that phrase myself when giving advice, but always with caution! What does it really mean?  I worry that far too often,...

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...

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...
