Play Like a Champion Today

I've been working like a dog, or busy bee, or a chicken with its head cut off? Yeah, it's like that.  And there's some hard stuff-- the kind that comes with being a living, breathing person and loving other living, breathing people. Life, y'know? Yes, yes...

Eat Jelly Beans and Donuts

After learning I had lost 100lbs with only diet and exercise, someone asked me a question that I haven't been able to get out of my head:  "How did you quit eating?"

If there is one mistake I see in the gym (besides knowing that people are trying to out train a bad diet) that is sabotaging their success, it's this one. The most common scenario is this...and it's really common.  Someone comes in, all fired up with a new program in hand.  Maybe even it's a… Continue reading Myth #14: Intensity is Irrelevant

One of the most frustrating things for any gym goer is to keep showing up day after day and not seeing any progress.  If you come to me and tell me that, you might be surprised when I don't ask you anything about your training program.  My first question is how you're eating.
