Yoga for Abs

  Looking for something a little different this week I found a set of poses (courtesy of Self.com online magazine) that make you work your core.  Nothing revolutionary, but useful and it came with some nice illustrations.  I have edited where I thought a little more explanation was needed.  Remember, tighten your abs to hold […]

The 15-Minute Workout Routine – Part 4

In Parts 1, 2 and 3, I covered the leg workout, the chest and front delts workout, and the back and rear delts workout respectively, that I do in 15-20 minutes.  I add in 15 minutes to warm up and stretch, so in 30 minutes I can get a good workout when I am pressed […]

Women and Personal Trainers – Part 3 – When is it Time to ‘Fire’ your Trainer

In my previous blog post I discussed getting the most from your trainer; how to do it and what your responsibilities are as a client. So why are we talking about whether to end the relationship with the trainer? Fact is, like any relationship, things can feel ‘old and stale’, or we reach the point […]

Women and Personal Trainers – Part 2 – Getting the Most from your Fitness Trainer

Now that you have selected your trainer, negotiated the price and number of sessions, how do you get the most for your money?  And as a reminder – this is a business relationship  –  each party has obligations to make the relationship function productively. I have had personal trainers for short periods occasionally over the […]

We All Have Six Packs

The title of this post comes from a sentence in an article on abs from a guy with really great abs.  Yeh, I know there are a lot of hot guys with great abs – see the plethora of calendars, online and offline, making the rounds now that 2010 is in sight.  You haven’t seen them? Maybe I can find […]

Follow up on Variety in Exercise Routine

A few weeks ago I blogged about “mixing it up”  –  changing and adding variety to your fitness schedule.   I made mention of some ‘Butt’ exercises I had found and planned to try.  Amazingly I couldn’t find that great set of exercises again.  Found similar but not the ones I was so excited about when I […]

Variety is the Spice that Keeps the Motivation

I don’t know about you – but I have been working out with weights for a lo-o-o-o-ng time.   I really notice it when the workout routine comes around to the start of the cycle and I think “man I just did legs….  or so it seems”.   Does no-one else get that feeling?  Is it just mydays […]

Stretching for Boomers

In a recent Tweet I said June would be the month to focus on stretching tips.  Well we are still in June, so this is just in time.   Summer is the time we think about getting to the beach or the BBQ or the County Fair – so we want to work out and get […]

The Power of Slow

I like the quote from jacket: ”The Slow philosophy is about giving each task the time and focus that it deserves so that you do it better and enjoy it more.” It got me thinking about the power of slow in relation to training/working out.   And as in previous blog entries, I aim my comments […]

Always Learning Something New

Today I am sore. I am excited. I used muscles I had been avoiding; and at least I am admitting that here. When it comes to body-building, I love sharing, and I love learning – and this week it was learning. Because I had a recent birthday, my Gym offered me a session with a […]
