How do you make exercise a habit?

This question is one I’m faced with daily and I’m constantly trying to find the best answer.

Making exercise a habit is challenging for many people – especially if you have never had any success exercising consistently in the past.

Heck, even if you have exercised consistently at a previous time in your life it can still be difficult to make it a habit now. Continue reading

This gallery contains 2 photos.

I had a friend of mine message me a few days ago asking about my thoughts on supplements.

He had gone into Walgreens and had seen this daunting wall of supplements that they had on display and wondered what many of you have probably wondered – how do I make sense of this all?

With the vast amount of supplements out there it can be extremely difficult to make an informed decision on what to do – I understand this and, just like you, I’ve seen these types of displays at different stores in the past.

Today, I’ll help simplify things for you and give you my thoughts. Continue reading

Getting Back On Track

After having to do a couple of S.U.D.S. workouts the last week or two I was finally able to get back on track today – completing some heavy squats, presses, pull ups, and auxiliary work.

I’d been in a bit of a funk recently with my workouts, due in large part to a lack of sleep and a low amount of energy from my current low-carb diet (I’ll talk more about the specifics later), but today felt great! Today felt like a brand new beginning.

Many people deal with the same situation I was in the last week – lack of sleep, elevated stress levels, and an unwillingness to workout. Continue reading

Getting Stronger: It’s All About Progression

I had a training session with one of my clients last night and between sets of squats, pull ups, bench presses, and rows (just to name a few exercises I have him doing) we talked a bit about the progress he has made thus far.

His goal, like many other people, is to get stronger. He had trained on his own for quite some time and stalled out – he wasn’t making any more progress. All the hours he was spending in the gym were leading to him having the exact same results he had always had because he was doing the same old routine he had always done.

This is what many people do when they go to the gym and it really hinders them from getting the results they desire. Continue reading

The Importance Of Proper Rest Intervals

I just finished up a rather intense metabolic resistance training session.

For this particular session these are the exercises I used:

Dumbbell Squat to a Dumbbell Shoulder Press to a Dumbbell Reverse Lunge
TRX Row
Kettlebell Swing
Push Ups

I did these in a circuit with no rest between exercises and about 60 seconds of rest between each circuit.

By the time I had finished 5 of these circuits I was sweating buckets and the entire workout had only lasted about 20 minutes. Continue reading

2 Simple Keys To Getting In Shape

In the last few weeks I’ve been transitioning from living in Green Bay to living in Milwaukee and with this transition of course comes the task of moving all of my clothes, furniture, bed, and other possessions.

Luckily, I had a good friend of mine with a truck help me transport my bed back to Milwaukee and also another friend of mine help me carry things to my car making the daunting task of moving a bit less daunting.

Today, I just finished up moving my 500+ pounds worth of weights and weight training equipment. Continue reading
