COPYING SOMEONE ELSE'S WORKOUT!!       A major mistake made by a lot of gym-goers is following a workout program that has not been specifically designed for them. The problem with this type of program is that it has been designed for someone else and not specifically for you! Many of these workout plans have been designed for professional athletes who have been training for a number of years, who have a very specific goal. If you tried to copy these workouts you may find ...

1. HOW TO DEVELOP A FITNESS PROGRAM When developing the program to accomplish your fitness goals, I look at the program at three levels.   Macro, Mezzo, and Micro.   The  Macro  level is the big picture level.  It represents your short term and long term goals, or big picture purpose, behind the program. These goals are typically your reasons for wanting to start a fitness program.  Loose weight, gain muscle, get sick less often, ...

On Monday, I decided to pursue a different workout program than I'm used to.  It's a deadlift every day program.  A large amount of this decision came with the goal that I've had for the last few years, which is to ultimately deadlift 500lbs.  This is not an impossible goal, but a difficult one.  This is far from my singular goal.  It just happens to be my most easily measured goal.  If I'm able to pull over 500, then I could easily consider myself to be ...

Carbohydrates are often vilified.  Look at Adkins or the South Beach diet and you'll basically think that carbs are the worst thing that you could ever consume...ever.  In a way, they can be, and in many others they are far from it. Previously, I've talked about calories and how they're important for you to know, especially those you should be consuming.  Carbs provide you with 4 calories per 1 gram of carbohydrate.  So it's generally easy, if you're pretty math ...

If you have not read Part 1 , please do so now. Part 2 start right where 1 left off. So what do I suggest? Access & Consistency : While traveling, I found that the only way to ensure easy access and consistency wherever I went, was to bring it all with me. Unfortunately, with a 23KG checked bag limit, it is hard to bring your own dumbbells, treadmills, blenders, or personal trainers. You can, however, bring (1) a handful of easy to pack power bands for ...

World Champion Boxer I think the best way to look at martial arts for self defense purposes is, it is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it (kind of like how my wife packs for vacation!). Unfortunately too many people do not think about self defense until they are in a situation where it is needed. Whether you have been mugged, assaulted, or just want to protect yourself or family, martial arts for self defense is a must. Sonya Lamonakis was a mugging victim ...
