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.

Dumbbell Upgrade

December 3, 2015

New Weekly Tipz! This week the message is clear: don’t be afraid to use heavier weight. In broader terms: don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. I see it all too often, people using dumbbells (for example) that are far too easy and light. Of course, there are quite a few others ways to make any exercise more challenging but let’s keep it simple for now. If you can and know how to correctly perform an exercise, with near-perfect form, through a complete pain-free range of motion, then you are ready. How heavy? There is no real wrong answer here. But truth be told, 15+ reps are entirely over-rated for most. Personally, in general, I recommend a weight heavy enough to allow no more than 10 reps, no less than 5 reps. Don’t go too fast, don’t go too slow. In other words, smooth controlled reps. Carry on…


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! Yes it’s true, there are a million exercises. I could show you any number of them. But instead, today, i am suggesting just one. One to add to your current collection. It’s simple, but it does a lot of things all at once. O f course, there’s nothing necessarily magical about any one exercise… unless you make it that way. There’s no need to do a bunch of exercises if you really focus your mind and body on just a few. Quality over quantity every time. Surely you have time for a 3 minute video today?

New Weekly Tipz Show! This week is Part 2 from last week. Last week demonstrated a few full body exercises so that’d you’d have an idea of what i mean when i say “never sit down to exercise”. This week i show a few more examples. But just know that there are many. This is only intended to simply give you a few ideas. Next week i will demonstrate a sample workout, done in real time. This week just focus on the idea of “variety”. Get up. Stand up. Move.

New Weekly Tipz (repost)! This week is part 1 of 2 (or 3). I just wanted to show some of you what “full body” movements look like. Just to get you thinking. There will be more next week and a workout video the week after next. This video today is NOT a workout or a prescription. It’s just me showing a bunch of progressions of movement. Some are easy, some are a bit harder. The idea is to not sit down to do exercise…stand up!
