I absolutely love to hate (to love) these exercises so much I wrote about it for +Men's Health. I KNOW you know what I'm talking about with Bulgarian split squats.... ;)
These 11 resistance exercises are among the toughest but most effective movements you can do. Use them to build serious strength, muscle, and endurance.

Wanna hear the backstory on the Flexcam video that went viral last week? The "cocky muscle man" is my friend Micah Macbeth, owner of CrossFit 215 in Philadelphia, and the woman who outgunned him is his fiance, Ann Marie (who used to be afraid of gaining muscle, if you can believe that!).:)

Micah says: "Sorry to say it was set-up, hope that doesn't ruin it for everyone. When I looked up at the Jumbotron, that was sincere surprise, by the way, followed by pride. I had never seen her flex before and was so enamored by it. It was so much fun to be part of."

Five smokin' hot workouts from +Jill Coleman. Those who know her knows she does NOT mess around. 
For the last year, I have not been to the gym. Well, to a big box gym that is. And for this reformed cardio queen and gym rat, that's a big change. I have not been on a cardio machine in a month, a...

Got two dumbbells and 20 minutes? Try this raging Lift Weights Faster dumbbell circuit I wrote up for FitFluential.

It’s been a really long winter. Snow and freezing cold have reigned over us in Minnesota for the past five months and my general feeling about it has been to hunker down in hibernation mode. My workouts tended matched my mood: heavy. (Joking about my mood, for the most part, but I have been lifting …

CAN you lift weights faster instead of doing traditional cardio?

Up to this point, whenever people would tell me they’re doing heavy squats or deadlifts for cardio, I would just laugh nervously and nod. What I was thinking was, “Not exactly,” but it’s such an in-depth topic that I wanted to do it justice.

I reveal the real deal about cardio and lifting weights in this brand new post.
Is metabolic-resistance training indeed an apples-to-apples swap when it comes to cardiovascular benefits? Not exactly. And it’s time to clarify the issue.

[NEW POST] What one thing can you commit to doing more often this month? For trainer JVB of Strong Is Fun, this question ended up improving both her fitness AND her marriage. Read all about it in her new post on my website.

I thought starting to jog would be a small, silly thing. I never imagined it it would inspire me to reorganize my entire schedule. What will YOU choose?

I love love LOVE belonging to private gyms. The secret perks, in my latest column for +Women's Health

p.s. Apologies for the "bikini body" ad that pops up. Clearly NOT my idea.:)
Is your home away from home the right size?

The Kavadlo bros + +Adrienne Harvey (AKA Girya Girl) came up with a GREAT calisthenics workout for me in this article for +Experience Life. Have you done the Drinking Bird before?

People fall into different categories for their conditioning requirements, says +Max Shank. Which do you fall into?

If you -- or anyone you know -- is looking some tips for how to introduce or reintroduce exercise when you're suffering from fatigue or low thyroid function, I encourage you to read and share this post I did for Healthful Elements. I tapped The Movement Minneapolis trainer Cardigan Mark for the gentle wisdom.

Favorite boutique in the world. I stop here every time I'm in Philly and clean the place out (or do as much damage as I can on my budget).:)
