Build Your Own Home Gym...

So we already talked about what it takes to build a home gym for Beachbody programs. The awesome thing about BB is that you don’t need tons of equipment. You can get world class workouts, change your whole life, get shredded with almost nothing. As I wrote about, I would start with...

Building a Home Gym for...

So you want to build up a home gym? Congrats! Maybe the fitness bug has really bit you. Maybe you have completed a program or two and you KNOW this is your thing now. Maybe you just want a real, dedicated space to push play. Whatever the reason, IMO building a home Beachbody gym is a...

Abs and Belly Fat

I hear it all the time — “Coach Wayne, I’ve lost a lot of body fat everywhere except the lower abs.  What do I need to do to get rid of that stubborn belly fat?”  They want the washboard abs! Believe me, we ALL want them. That’s what sells! 90% of those...

Fast Workouts for Busy ...

We all have ’em… crazy busy days! Even with the best planning, I admit there are times where no matter what I can move around – I have only limited time to get in a workout. Times like this have been great to use 22 Minute Hard Corps (here is my review). You can get a...

YogaX: A Love/Hate Rela...

If someone starts P90X, 9 times out of 10 I get an email or question about YogaX. I have a love/hate relationship with YogaX.  I “hate” yoga, and I “love” subbing a different workout for it! LOL! This seems like a really fitting post for “yoga...

Get Over the Scale

We have got to get past our obsession with the scale! It almost makes me want to tell you to throw it out. Almost. :-) Your weight on the scale is just one measurement of your progress, and it can be a misleading one. Tony Horton says it in one of his 1-on-1′s (I can’t remember which one...

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,...

Plateaus

I get a lot of emails each day. I can often give you some feedback and even point you to a specific article on the topic you need. While I have quite extensive library of knowledge here in teamRIPPED, sometimes there are topics that come up that I don’t have a specific article on…...

Family Fitness and Heal...

Everyone has family and friends that will play some sort of role in their transformation. It’s amazing to see how fitness cannot only transform a person but an entire family or community. Your hope may be to inspire others in your family but take it slowly and be considerate. Your...

What Beachbody program should you start with? What program should you do if your main goal is body fat loss? What program should you do to add muscle mass? What program should you pick you don’t have a lot of equipment? These are all great questions to ask yourself is you pick your...

How to Ensure Intensity...

Workout intensity matters! I wrote about this very recently, but I want to revisit it. I know some people are just going through the motions. Your results are connected to how hard you can push yourself. So how can you use your own intensity to get the best results? Let me tell you....

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

Body types tend to get a lot of press. Special thanks to Allen for asking about this topic last week. I can’t believe I have never blogged on this. Sometimes as we set goals and seek to understand our situation, it helps if we can classify traits and characteristics so that we can...
