The King and Queen of Sping meet has now come and gone. That’s another training cycle in the books, another competition under the belt, and another opportunity to learn from my mistakes and yes, mistakes were made. For the most part, I would say that I had a pretty descent training cycle, even earlier on...

A friend and I were recently talking about the number of competitors that assign their unhealthy relationship with food and bodyfat with, at some point doing a show.  At first, I was quick to pass this off as first time competitors being unprepared for their show and the impact it can have on your caloric...

Kettlebell Training Kettlebell training has always been a favorite of mine. I took a course several years ago and became Level 1 Certified in Kettlbell training in 2010.
