screen time is ruining our fitness

Screen Time is Ruining Our Fitness

We spend way too much time in front of the television and other electronic devices.  Studies and reports on the obsession with the younger generations “screen devices” proves it, says Lily Rothman of Time magazine.  But don’t rely on the statistics from some obtuse government agency or random study.  Just look at how much television we as adults watch to determine how it’s ruining our fitness and health.   The Pot and the Kettle Believe me I’m no different from[…]

Declaring War On Fat Loss

You know there’s a lot to be said about moderation.  The word is that “moderation in all things including moderation” will bring about good results.  However when the topic comes concerning fat loss you might as well grab a snickers, because you’re going to be there a while.  Moderation is a fatal thing.  Nothing succeeds like excess.  – Oscar Wilde Moderation is akin to mediocre or medium, so when you’re talking about fat loss, why settle for anything less than[…]

Squats Are A Waste of Time

Sweat drips down the back of your neck and along the furrows of your panicked brow.  The vein running along your upper forehead pulses with effort as you descend down into the depths of the unknown, the heavy bar digging deep into your traps as you squeeze out another rep.  What a joke!  I don’t even know why people squat anymore!  I mean they rip your knee joints apart and destroy your low back muscles.  They’re very difficult to learn[…]

Why Your Fat Loss Nutrition Isn't Working

The Reason Why Your Fat Loss Nutrition Isn’t Working

There are two general types of dieters that I’ve observed over the years.  The OCD under-eaters and the not-so-consistent “but I eat so well” dieters.   The former of the two dieter factions being stuck between a rock and a hard place with their fat loss efforts.  The latter of this dieting conundrum being consistent to a point, but caving in far too frequently during the week to hunger pangs of nachos, ice cream and popcorn to elicit any real fat[…]

Old Dog – Old tricks – Rebuilding my Deadlift

It seems like I have always been known primarily being a bencher. For the most part it’s true that’s what I focused the most and competed in for the last 20 plus years. To be honest my squat and my deadlift were much better than my bench when I started. But the love /hate relationship with bench press was all consuming. But after losing that 100 lbs or so I started to re-evaluate my training on many levels. One of[…]

In life that is. You know what the worst part[…]

Top Six Conditioning Exercises for Youth Athletes

So there we were, panting on the floor, gasping for air.  Our heart and lungs felt like they were on fire!  Our legs were gooey and felt like melted candle wax and our upper back muscles gave out quiet little spasms as they flexed and relaxed under duress of the intense conditioning session we just performed. This is how it feels to push your body to the max and grind through endless rounds of high intensity physical efforts.  It’s not[…]
