Last Post of 2008. Tear Rolls Down Eye

I can only assume roughly twelve people are reading this blog today. I mean, it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that everyone is either piss drunk right now and/or shoveling out their cars. Not to mention pretty much everyone takes the last two weeks of December off from work. It’s the American way. Helllllllllooooooo? Is… Read more

Part II of Monday’s Post (Cause That’s How I Roll)

First things first, I thought all you New Englanders were tough. You call this past weekend a snow storm?????? Hahahahahahahahaahahahaahahahahaha. Please. Where I’m from, that was a dusting.

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday (Snow Storms, Fat Loss Programming, My New Project)

Writers Note: I started this blog post this morning, but then realized I had to shovel my car out, so I had to wait till later to finish it. Now I’m at work, and don’t have time to write down everything that I wanted to say, so here’s the abridged version (part II tomorrow, I… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday (Do You Really Have Tight Hammies?, T-Spine Mobility, and Dudes Eating Meat)

1. When going through a simple movement screen with clients, one “test” that I like to do is to have them simply touch their toes (without bending their knees). For some (like myself), it’s easy. For others it’s a bit more arduous, and oftentimes they believe, falsely, the cause is hamstrings that are tighter than… Read more

Celebrity Trainers Are Smart……

LMAO!!!!! Okay, you’re right. To say that a celebrity trainer is smart is like saying a donkey can do calculus. What was I thinking? Answer: deciding whether or not the girl in the video is cute. I’m up in the air. On one hand that airbrushed picture of her at the end of the video… Read more

Protein Powder (A Brief Review). And By “Brief,” What I Really Mean Is “The Most Un-Scientific Post Ever.”

Not long ago I mentioned that I would start dedicating some time discussing supplements; which ones I like, which ones I dislike, and which ones will make girls want to hang out with you. First on the hit list is protein powder. For those of you who are new to my blog, you can read… Read more
