How To Dominate Your Fitness Goals With Time Management

Time, energy and money – the big three. These, minus the use of other people, are the three resources you have to get what you want out of your life. The reason I’m ignoring other people is that although they can give you information, they aren’t going to get you lean or muscular. Only you can. So, it’s just these three resources.

How Your Life Experiences Impact Your Fitness Success

 

I wrote an article a while back here on how to improve your fat loss results. There were some opposing views in the comments section, mainly in regards to whether or not men should go fast or go slow when beginning their fitness journeys.

Good Morning Gentlemen.  I have a short, but hopefully worthwhile article for you all on a new technique I’ve found for hard boiled eggs.  As most of you are aware, eggs are a fantastic food that not only tastes great, but also has a plethora of vitamins and minerals.  I’m not going to spend much more time on the health benefits of eggs other than the fact you should be eating them regularly.

So what piqued my interest on making hard boiled eggs in the first place?  Continue reading “The Easiest Way to Hard Boil Eggs”

Resolutions

Ah January, a time when everyone is on their A game right?   Everyone is committed to getting fit/eating better, quitting smoking/drinking, saving more money, etc.  All of these are great but they typically don’t last very long.  The problem with new years resolutions is that they’re almost always destined to fail.  Today, I’ll go over why resolutions typically fail and what you can do to create real change in your life this year

Avoiding the Holiday Gut

One facet of the Christmas season that I’ve observed is that people let their dietary  choices go out the window.  People just accept that they’ll be shoveling junk food in their mouths and chugging excess booze the whole time just to make a “resolution” to eat healthy in January, which usually has them back home on their lazy asses within two weeks.   As I prepare for my collaboration with Team WB Fitness next month, I’m going to keep my diet clean this month and I’ll share my plan on keeping myself from looking like Santa by Christmas
