Stop Tweaking Your Hamstrings on Your Run!

For decades we have been searching for the magic pill, the easy button to more strength, better stamina and ultimately the physique we all started this journey chasing. Well, I’ve found it!

Fixing Sticky Shoulders with Rowing

Shoulder’s are a pain in the, well shoulders… If you ever were an overhead thrower, be it baseball, softball, football, even volleyball, there is a good chance you have experienced shoulder pain.

Get Off Your Toes and Squat!

As a coach, I have heard all the excuses as to why someone shouldn’t squat. The most prominent, and most understandable excuse is, “when I squat, it hurts my knees.” Hey, I don’t like to do things that hurt either, so I get it!

Stamina through Trisets

I know, everyone’s first thought is: NO WAY! There is no way you could go any amount of time without carbs, sugar, caffeine AND alcohol. Maybe eliminate one for a month… Well, to be honest, that is how I felt initially as well. So I started with caffeine in February 2020. I knew I had […]

Build Stamina for the Gym at Home!

Who has ever used the excuse, “I just don’t have time to workout”? If you didn’t raise your hand you either get paid to workout (awesome for you) or you are lying 🙂 Here’s the reality, sometimes life gets in the way: work, kids, social obligations or you just get lazy. But if you have […]

Be a Crouching Tiger and Attack Your Workout

Becoming a Crouching Tiger is probably easier than you think. It doesn’t require you to become an expert swordsman, in this instance.
