Effective Legs Exercise Variation (Boost the booty and leg definition!)

A couple weeks ago I shared a video that had a legs exercise tip where you added a pulses IMMEDIATELY after a set of lunges, and because so many folks liked that (as much as you can ‘like’ lunges and burning legs) I decided to whip up another quick legs exercise video tip! This one is a bit different because it adds a little tweak to the actual lunge itself. The tip you’ll find in this video forces one leg ...

Boot Camp Assignment – Eat These 3 Foods Every Day

I have another assignment for you in the diet department and I’m going to ask you to add a few foods to your daily diet, rather than going negative and asking you to remove certain foods. I have a general philosophy that many of you already know, that it’s easier to succeed, not only in the short-term, but the long-term as well, if you switch your focus from removing negative foods and behaviors to adding g ...

Is It Worth It To Buy Organic?

Another week and another round of email questions! I have some good ones for you this week, so I’ll cut the chit-chat and get on with the show! Q:  “You have mentioned a couple times over the past couple weeks about foods and skin quality.  What does that mean?” – Kathy A:  I have mentioned that a couple times and I think it’s important to note. Poor quality foods lead to bad skin. Bad fats, processed junk ...

2 Healthy Dessert Recipes

You like dessert, right? Who doesn’t like dessert? Okay, I know a few people who are adament they do not like dessert, but I think they’re crazy. Personally I love a good piece of cheesecake or REAL ice cream. My philosophy is that if you’re going to do dessert, then DO dessert.  Get the good stuff that’s made from REAL food…don’t get the low-cal/no fat stuff in an effort to lessen the calorie blow. I’ll sh ...

3 High Fat Foods to Eat Regularly?

Do you eat fat? I know the common thought is to cut out fat if you want to lose fat (makes sense in the noggin), even in this day and age where more and more folks are telling you there are healthy high fat foods. I want to make a distinction before we get into this whole high fat thing… High fat does NOT necessarily mean high TOTAL calories. Yes, high fat foods are higher in calories, but that does NOT mea ...

Boot Camp Legs and Butt Exercise Tip (Video)

Do you like lunges? I have a love/hate relationship with the things, as do many of my clients, but I’m a mean and nasty trainer guy and make them do the nasty exercises anyway. They’re too dang good, but I agree that they do hurt.  They make your legs burn and shake, and if you do them enough, make it difficult to walk the next day and that’s a soreness that doesn’t really go away as your fitness increases. ...

In all seriousness (and don’t be offended if you really do see your therapist because your food talks to you), I do want you to talk to your food and drink this week. I want you to ask your food, “If I eat you, how will you ...

Email Q&A – Snack Bars and Weight Loss Resolutions

It’s Saturday and you know what that means? Oh, you don’t?  Well in my house it means…it’s Saturday. I know I’m a boring dude, but we have a 5-year old and 10-month old and it’s January in Nebraska.  Not exactly conducive to living an exciting life! I kid.  I love my life and wouldn’t change it for anything and the fact that Nolan is getting closer to walking everyday scares the bejesus out of me because I ...

3 Evening Snacks

Finding healthy evening snacks can be a tricky thing. For years there was no shortage of experts and gurus instructing you not to east past a certain magical hour lest your body hoard those calories and instantly increase the size of your waist by 800 inches, but, thankfully, the times have changed (for most folks anyway). Eating a snack in the evening, after dinner, can be done and you can still lose weigh ...
