New Weekly Health & Fitness Video Tipz! This week I demonstrate and describe a short and simple exercise routine that can be done anywhere by most anyone, with very little equipment. Don’t be put off by the fact that it might only take 10 minutes to do the entire workout. Don’t be put off by the fact there are only 3 exercises. I’m not going to go into great detail on this today, but just know that exercise need not be long or include lots of exercises to be effective. All 3 of these exercises will help improve the three big areas that constantly need our attention: Stretching, Strength & Stamina. Do you need to lose body fat? Then focus most of your precious energy on eating better and food prep, sleeping well and managing your stress. Most of us don’t need to exercise hours on end. But yes, we should move every day and eventually work towards 2-3 days of simple strength training each week. There will be much more on all of this in the coming year. In the meanwhile, get to work. Ask for help if you need it. You are in control.

New Weekly Tipz! First off, Happy New year. It’s now 2016. I have an idea i’d like you to hear, a suggestion, for being better this year and the next. For many, this advice will sound too simple or too easy. For others, it might even sound like a lot. But my suggestions for moving more in 2016 are simple, important and everyone should hear them. Watch the video. Get motivated. Start today :)

New Weekly Tipz! This week is a great time to access where we are, which is roughly 15 weeks till the end of the year, less than that till the “holidays”. Time doesn’t care if we’ve been busy. We need to know where we are exactly at this moment. Because where we are NOW has everything to do with where we are heading in the future. I’m talking about goals, dreams, the things we want from life. I say this often, and only with the best intentions: wherever we are at this present moment was made possible by our past and current lifestyle, environments and behaviors. If we want something different for ourselves in the future, we will mostly likely need to make some serious changes to the the way we think and the things we do (and don’t do). Make no mistake, this is the only way that i know conscience progress and change happens. Start slow. Build strong. (P.S i have no idea why the video is so dark. sorry. just roll with it.)

New Health & Fitness Tipz! Today i talk about “Squatting”. Most people hear that and think: an exercise. But it’s much more than that. Even if you never plan to “workout” again, you still should be able to squat down without it looking like total dogsh*t. The point is, you need to be able to safely squat down fairly low till the day you die. But this requires some knowledge and will take some practice. Today’s video is not about trying to teach anyone how to squat correctly(that would be a much longer video), but more for ideas on where to begin. Start today. Learn to squat again. If you are not an “exerciser” then try getting down and hanging out in the bottom part of the squat, much like a daily stretch. If you have seen the light and do practice movement on a regular basis, include squats in every workout, either as part of your warmup or as a main dish. The point is to move better and squatting is a fundamental part of that huge equation. Enjoy.

New Weekly Tipz! Today i talk briefly (2 min) about exercising at home. If you’ve never done it, you should try it. If you have but it’s been a while, it’s a great time to start back up. I’ve trained at home since i was 12. You don’t need any equipment but you most certainly use whatever you have or floats your boat. Just know that you don’t “need” any equipment. Don’t think for a minute that you can’t do resistance training and/or “cardio” at home. You just need the know how. By all means, ask me questions if you have any. Just know that training at home is a great option for some. And you’ll never know if you never try.

New Weekly Tipz! This week’s video is for all those out there that truly hate to exercise (which is probably 99% of most people)…but you also understand that you should probably do a “little” of something. How does ONE exercise a day sound? No, this is not a gimmick. This also isn’t to help you lose weight. One exercise a day won’t help much with that, sorry. This is to help you with the many other aspects of your general health. At the very least, do 1 upper-body “push”, 1 upper-body “pull” & 1 lower body/(leg or hip) exercise each week. Surely you have 5 minutes or less a day. (I did include 5 sample exercises for your convenience)

New Weekly Tipz! Have you ever wanted a 15-minute (or less) workout, that maintains your Strength & Power work, builds Lean Muscle & burns Body Fat, counts as “Cardio” (what i call Conditioning), improves Hip Mobility & Posture and gives you an easy way to get an even tan or at least a few healthy minutes out in the sun(vitamin D)? Well, this little routine i came up with years ago to practice the Kettlebell Swing. It also works great for all the other stuff i mentioned earlier. Keep in mind, you don’t need a kettlebell. You could use other things. Just be safe. I call this diddy “Staring Your Shadow Down” or “Groundhogs Day”. Enjoy.
