Sometimes you just need a quick workout with minimal equipment. Voila! Here you go.
If you follow fitness blogs or publications, you’ve probably heard of HIIT training. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT is, as the name says, high intensity training that is done in bouts alternated with rest.
Sounds simple, but this is exhausting! It requires mental fortitude, but drives big results! Read on to see if it’s right for you.
Meal prepping for exactly one person can be tough. If you’ve ever tried to portion out food, you know exactly what I mean. When I cook for only myself, I can try to plan for exactly one meal and no more, then <BOOM> I have enough food for the neighborhood.
Here are some quick tips for cooking solo and not wasting food:
Summer travel season is upon us! Air travel literally broadens our world but it can be extremely hard on the body. Follow the tips below to be a fresh and happy traveler!
Have you ever wondered if you have the right gear for lifting? Ya know, the belt, the shoes, the gloves? The good news is, there's usually not a "right" or "wrong". (Except for gloves. Those are wrong.)
However, there is often a "better" and "best" option. Let's look at shoes and the role they play in lifting.
I talked with Amy Roberts about why Chucks can be a great lifting shoe, and she does a great job of giving much more detail at wirecutter.com. Click to read more.
I like to do client spotlights because: A, I am super proud of my clients, and B, real people’s stories fascinate me.
Everyone has a different motivation, background, and natural ability. We can learn so much from other people and how they approach their training and life. For example, Guillermo has a full time job, a girlfriend, dog, and other hobbies. He's not tied to the gym every day, but he has pretty solid numbers and time for his priorities, something we all can aspire to.
If you are like me and enjoy watching throwing, sport, competition, or maybe have a thing for kilts, you should head to the Highland Games in San Antonio April 7 and 8.
The San Antonio Highland Games and Celtic Music Festival brings Scottish Games, music, cooking, and Highland dancing together for a celebration of Scottish heritage. Over 30 clans represent their people and culture in a weekend that is fun for all ages.
I talked to Athletic Director and former Highland Games champ, Ed Cosner, about the games, his experience throwing, and what you can expect at the games this year.
ReadyUp Athletic Podcast
Hey hey guys, I recently had the honor of sitting down to talk with my friend Zack on his podcast, ReadyUp Athletic Development.
Before the podcast, I posted this video on Instagram explaining Max's Ride for ALS, a fundraiser I am part of. Shortly after, Zack invited me to be on his podcast.
Max's Ride is a motorcycle ride and concert that raises money to support finding a cure. It is in Austin, TX, on April 21 this year. It is fun, family friendly, and welcomes all riders and non riders. Visit Maxals.org to learn more, and please join us!
ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, strikes people in every demographic, but with a greater frequency in the military population. It is always devastating, expensive, and fatal.
I know, because my dad had ALS. He passed in 2007. ALS will always be my biggest fight, but that is to be expected. When people like Zack, who haven't had a familial link to ALS, support our cause, I can never properly express my gratitude. THANK YOU Zack and Readyup for both giving us a voice, and becoming a sponsor of Max's Ride!
We had a great conversation covering lifting, gyms in Austin, TX, the fight against ALS, and fun things we are getting into next.
Listen here, and check out the ReadyUp podcast. It has central themes on lifting, athletic development, and great music, but covers many other topics.
