A few months ago, I wrote an article about the importance of warming up before teeing it up on the golf course. Way too often, I see people trying to squeeze in a workout, skipping or just completely forgetting the warm-up because they feel the main movement is more important. When in fact, the warm-up...

This month’s exercise of the month is a kneeling push press. It is a great exercise for working your postural muscles, while performing a pressing motion. Also, it is a good exercise to use if you’re looking for a pressing motion that is different than a bench press or shoulder press. It is a lot...

July was another super cool month. Heres some shit I did! 1.) Bought a new car: The truth is, Jeep isn’t a great everyday driver and gets terrible gas mileage. Further, Kilo doesn’t fit really well in the Jeep. So…after months and month and months of just totally blowing it off and not getting a...

I’ve had a lot of things on my mind this week that I wanted to blog about, so much so that’s been hard to narrow down a topic. However, after reading David and Bobby’s latest blogs, I decided to expound a bit on their topics. Why train? Why get up every day, put on the...

I recognize that most people workout because they want to looker better naked. I’m the same way, of course I want to improve my physique. But I would argue that physique improvement is at the bottom of the benefits of training. Physique is so subjective. You can win the Mr Olympia and people will think...

The vast majority of my clients are not physique competitors looking to do well onstage but are instead regular people who just want to lose some body fat, build some muscle, feel better, and be proud of their bodies. What this means is that packing all their food and taking it with them everywhere they...

I don’t feel like training today. A couple of weeks ago I was pretty down in the dumps. I had had an emotionally challenging weekend with a trip to Brinkley to see my dad, who is very sick with Parkinson’s. As if the disease isn’t enough, there are many underlying issues when it comes to...

Sports Performance is a buzzword that holds a high amount of value in competitive athletics. When most people think about performance in sports, they think about training, lifting, agility drills, or other activities that increase the athlete’s abilities. Athletes invest a large amount of time pushing their bodies through extremely high levels of physical stress...

Don’t be Camera Shy If you are like me, explaining things via text can be difficult. Important bits of information can be lost in communication if the message is misinterpreted.
