Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: Argo, Books to Check Out, Squatting 4x Per Week

1.  I’m your prototypical bookworm.  At any given point, I’m reading 3-4 books at once.  Okay, technically I’m listening to one book in my car as I drive to the facility everyday (I have a 40-45 minute commute both ways),but I’m counting that as part of the grand total. I get a lot of various emails… Read more

Glutes Are the New Biceps

Can’t or Won’t

Today I have another guest post from personal trainer Mike Anderson.  He did such a good job with his last installment, that I invited him back for round two. This time around, he’s kinda angry (and I like it!) We’ve all heard it a million times; hell, most of us have said it that many… Read more

There’s… Read more

Every Choice Counts

Today’s post comes to you from personal trainer, Michael Anderson*. I first met Mike a little over a year ago when, after exchanging a number of emails back and forth, he reached out and invited me to train at the gym where he works which happened to be in the same neighborhood where I had… Read more

Walking Advertisements?

NOTE:  I have to keep this one brief today because I’m about 20 minutes away from heading into a CPR/AED course that I’m as excited about as passing a kidney stone. Today’s more of an “opinion” piece, but something I feel is relavent to many who read this site on a daily basis. Many of… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: CP Bootcamps, Arnold, Dumb Personal Trainers, and Pumpkin Pancakes!

As is the case with most bootcamps, these classes are geared towards those individuals who, you… Read more
