A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… It is a period of civil war.
Rebel veggies, striking from a hidden base, have won
their first victory against the evil Carbohydrate Empire.
During the battle, Rebel bacon managed to steal low-carb
plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Grain,
a genetically modified space station with enough gluten to
destroy an entire planet.
Pursued by the Empire’s sinister sugars, Princess Paleo races
home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that
can save her people and restore insulin to South Beach…
As the diet and nutrition war wages on confusion grows over what and how we should eat to keep getting stronger and manage our weight. I’m sure you all get the … Read More »
It’s been a week since my last post and I wish there was a better reason than I have been in a funk but that just about sums it up. Last week I got some more bad news regarding my business which sets me back several months.
As many of you may know I have been struggling to open my facility in downtown Boston (still trying to find space) and dealing with middle men, investment firms and brokers has been a frustrating experience to say the least. I’m sure it is tough in any industry but especially one where you need to maintain client relationships in the process.
Well, last week I lost out on the third space I have worked so hard to close on (since August) as the investment firm I would have been renting from decided to throw a … Read More »
One of the biggest mistakes I see many beginners, novices and even veterans make is trying to master Van Halen’s Eruption guitar solo before mastering the scales…I know, what does this have to do with fitness? I will explain but first if there is anyone reading this that is unfamiliar with Eruption please Google it now for extreme guitargasm. You’re welcome.
The obvious analogy here is failing to master the basics or disregarding the fundamentals before moving on to the next exciting program or cool new exercise, oh look something shiny!
Heck, I’m even guilty of this myself and found myself quite humbled just yesterday as I decided to do some Turkish Get-ups then throw in some planks at the end for shits and giggles. There were no shits and hardly any giggles. The get-ups were challenging with a 12kg kettlebell and … Read More »
Has anyone checked out the new Alfonso Cuarón flick, Gravity? Lindsay and I went last night and I have to give it two thumbs up for being visually stunning and a real cool experience to see what an astronaut experiences while just hanging out in the vastness of space. Really effing cool.
Not only that but George Clooney has once again proven that he is not only the best looking man on earth but he has now officially dominated space as well. Seriously, who else would sweet talk a woman as he floats away to certain death? I will have to take a page from that book.
And I digress, but speaking of gravity today’s post is regarding a one-arm dumbbell bench press which if you have ever tried to perform with heavy weight you have found out how much gravity can … Read More »
I know, it’s something you probably didn’t want to hear but it’s time we all face the ugly fact; exercise isn’t going to make you to lose fat. I’m not writing this because of a new study that came out so if you’re only reading this looking for “scientific” evidence then read no further. Nor do I have nothing to sell you so there is no reason to create a poorly conducted study where n=1 to sway you towards a buying a useless product or service (what 99% of the media is doing). I’m just sick of pulling my hair out trying to get people to understand a few simple facts.
Yes, I am a personal trainer and strength coach and as such it is part of my job is to get people to exercise. In fact, coaching exercise is the … Read More »
