Need Some Inspiration? Read This

First off, if you did not check out yesterday’s Good Reads compilation, make sure to do that. I think you’ll enjoy it. Ok, to the point. This post will be short, but I hope some of you can take it to heart. I have been witness to some pretty incredible workouts over the years from some of the top athletes in the world, but none have been more inspiring than what I watched this past Saturday morning from my grandmother. It took place in the pool and lasted all of 35 minutes. I can’t even recall exactly what it consisted [...]

This seems so obvious to me, but recently I have been getting more and more angry messages angry messages after I [...]

Summertime Party in the Big Apple

As most of you who read my blog already know, I am a huge believer in continuing education. I am always trying to learn as much as I can, and I believe that the best way to learn is from the best (duh!). With that in mind, while I was at last weekend’s Perform Better Summit, I had a chance to speak with Joe Dowdell. Joe owns and operates one of the best gyms in the country in Peak Performance and trains all sorts of famous people, from athletes to actors to basically anything else you can think of. He’s [...]

Work the Whole Back Side of the Body With One Move

If you have not checked out yesterday’s Good Reads post, be sure to do that because there’s a lot of great stuff there.The real purpose of this post though is to share with you a really cool exercise that I have been playing around with. In fact, I posted a video of this last week on the Facebook and it was the most “liked” thing I have ever posted. It’s really cool and I’m excited about it. It’s designed to improve the back side of the body (you know, the side you can’t see in the mirror), which is always [...]

Perform Better Summit Recap and Some Thanks You’s

I just got back from three days at the Perform Better Fitness Summit in Providence, Rhode Island. This was my first summit so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I had high hopes based on what I had heard.Still, it exceeded my expectations. I really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. I don’t know what I enjoyed more: the presentations or the chance to meet so many smart and nice people. I learned a ton, both in and out of the lectures. Sitting here now and trying to recount it all, my head is sort of spinning [...]

An AWESOME Learning Resource You Should Check Out

I wanted to take a minute today to bring your attention to another awesome learning resource that I have been using recently: StrengthandConditioningWebinars.com Like the name suggests, a webinar is basically an online seminar, meaning you “attend” it in the comfort of your own home (or wherever else you’d like to watch it). I put “attend” in quotations because obviously you aren’t actually going anywhere, but in terms of the actual information you receive, it really is just like being there live. Presentations typically last between 30-45 minutes, and because the presenters don’t have to deal with any interruptions as [...]
