What to Really Expect When You Exercise - Outside of death and taxes, there are so few guarantees in life. The optimist will want to counter that reality while the pessimist, well, it is their reality. But as they say, truth is in the eye of the beholder – you believe what you want. When it comes to exercise, many place it as the “Holy Grail” of sorts to answering all of their woes. It’s the one thing they must do to make everything right in their lives. While I can’t argue with the positiv...

What’s Killing Your Progress - You did it! You started working out; joined a gym; committed to a healthier lifestyle. You’re proud of yourself….except, you have nothing to show for it. May be you’re feeling better, clothes are fitting less snuggly, perhaps even you dropped a couple pounds. But you want more. It’s not enough. You put in the time but still have little to show for it. What gives? Exercise, while it’s a simple thing, causes more heartache and frustration for those looking towar...

Understanding Sets and Reps - Numbers. They’re such a part of our lives and all have different values and significance. When it comes to exercise, more specifically weight training, numbers can become one of the defining differences between accomplishing a goal or missing it completely. Take for example sets and reps. Most will exercise with a number(s) in mind but do they truly know what they represent and are they using them according to their goals? Let’s take a deeper look. The Obvious ...

Great for Fitness, Bad for Fat Loss - Let’s get one thing perfectly clear. Exercise in all and any of its forms is good for you. Period. There are better types of exercise for a particular outcome (i.e. a bodybuilder will have to lift weights) but in essence whatever you choose as your preferred method of exercise you can do no wrong. However, when it comes to the number one reason given as to why people exercise, their methods are no where in accordance with the desired outcome – weight lo...

How Much Should I Exercise? - According to the American College of Sports Medicine, we need 150 minutes of exercise per week, which can be met by either doing 30-60 minutes of moderate intensity 5 times per week or 20-60 minutes of vigorous activity 3 times per week. It should be noted that this time is above and beyond activities of everyday living. It should also be noted that these recommendations are the minimum, meaning most likely you need more. 150 minutes is 2 and a half hours – jus...

When To Push, When Not To Push - Exercise is good! There is no doubt to that statement. Can one do too much? Absolutely! In times when one is feeling too good or just being stupid, too much exercise can and will become counterproductive to the original course. But how much is too much and what about all this rhetoric about pushing it to the limits? Do you need to always keep the pedal to the metal so to speak when it comes to exercise or is there a happy medium? When To Push In my many year...

The Real Olympic Takeaway - The 2018 Winter Olympics have come to a close and if you’re like me, it was time for them to be done. I’m a much bigger fan of the Summer Games but I would be remiss to say they didn’t have my attention. I spent many a nights up late watching them (couldn’t make it for the women’s hockey gold match though), cheering on the USA even in games where I didn’t know what was going on. Some of the events left a little to be desired but in all it was enjoyable to watch. ...

A New Years Plan to Follow - I know. January is just about over and here I am writing to you about a plan you should follow in the new year. Why? Because your best intentioned “resolution” isn’t going to work. I know. So pessimistic of me. Couldn’t I be more positive? Fact of the matter is, you’ll always have my support but reality is reality. 80% of those who make resolutions fail by February; less than 8% actually see them all the way through. Every. Year. Not great odds. The real issue w...
