The goofy smile and thumbs up is for the people who comment about the “serious muscle pics” lol I can’t seem to get out of shape. Not that I am really TRYING to get out of shape but due to work and the rollerblading injury, I have hardly worked out at all in the last [...]

Health Trifecta of Trifectas

March 10th, 2009

Reader Bill posted a comment the other day about how I viewed nutrition. This got me thinking a bit and so I threw together some graphics real quick to kind of show my idea of health. Reminder: I am not a doctor or an expert… this is MY minds eye view of some of the aspects [...]

My New Favorite Snack

March 2nd, 2009

Let me start off by apologizing for not getting any posts up this weekend.It was very busy. We went indoor climbing again (yep, just as fun as the first time!) and my mother and brother were in town. I have also been very busy with school (I have 2 major papers due over the next two [...]

Alright, so you are now an expert at walking. You also have your sprinting regimine down pat. It is time to throw in some resistance training… aka weight lifting. Now, for you girls that are shrugging off this post as one for the guys… DON’T. I am only going to say this once (for now)… WOMEN [...]

Exercise for Beginners
