Back On The Workout Train!

Back On The Workout Train! Man, it feels so good to be back in the swing of things! Anyone who knows me that 2014 wasn’t a good year for me, in terms of personal development. My father passed away just days before his 65th birthday and I remained in a fog for the rest of that calendar year. I tried, a couple of times, to get back to working out, but it only lasted a couple of weeks or so. I thought I’d found something...

Smoothly Transitioning Into Les Mills Pump

Smoothly Transitioning Into Les Mills Pump A few days ago, I noted that I was going to start Les Mills Pump since I had just finished ChaLEAN Extreme.

So, this Spring, I decided to do it again. And man, oh man, how I’ve missed it! ChaLEAN Extreme, and my...

Fighting the Late Summer Slump: 2011 Edition

Fighting the Late Summer Slump: 2011 Edition HAPPY AUGUST! This time, last year, I was talking about my plans to fight my annual “Late Summer Slump”, which is generally the time of year where I finish a big workout rotation, then slack off almost completely until my New Year’s commitment starts. The LSS usually makes me incredibly lazy, since I’m basically idle, and along with that comes a little weight gain. It’s never...
