When was the last time you did 500 reps of abs/core? Sounds a lot, I know. Never? Cannot remember? How about getting started with 50 and add 5-10 a day or every two days? Break reps down thru the day if needed. Regain and strengthen your core. Why? Keep reading. Several years ago, I did......
Moving Fanny on Mother’s Day? I got home pretty late after spending a wonderful evening with my good friend Jeannette and her family. Went to bed 1:00am. Unfortunately and somewhat expected, it disrupted my day even after 7 hours of sleep. It was 11:15am and was feeling sleepy. Thus, what to do? was not about......

Unfortunately, looking at long-term studies, exercise does not drive weight as it ‘should’ (= as it is perceived or believed).  Why is that? A few reasons… People eat back their......

Are You Tracking Your Strength? I didn’t notice how sore my upper body was until I started to stretch before the workout. Ouch! To help out, two of the 1x Rep Max movements were upper body. Had not done 1x RM done in a while.  If you’re in the gym lifting moderate to heavy weights......

Cheers to self-care! I had a great time playing in a volleyball tournament, dancing, catching up with friends, and appreciating the ocean view Fort Walton Beach, FL offers.

Generally, I take day 4 off. I was feeling good and routine was basic, no weight lifting, so I got the good basic movements in. I must say, by mid round 4, row started to wear  me out though. How did you move your fanny? 5 Rounds (completed in 16:57 min) 20 Calorie Row10 GHD Sit......
Prowler push killed my good intentions of doing a short routine post workout. How did you move your fanny? The prowler, the killer, showed me no-no, as usual. Pushing a sled fires up the glutes, hamstrings, calves and quads. Lots of big muscles. Wonder why leaves me and most people sucking air and grasping for anything......

Cardio Blast – Treadmill Burst Training  I had not stepped on a treadmill in a while. Sunday, 4/10/16, was a good day for that. I used to run a lot…45 miles a week. Until I started to have injuries. Not blaming running, only myself for my ignorance at the time. I like to incorporate burst......
