Favorite Lifts: Cross Face Lying Tricep Extension & Cable Face Pulls

In getting settled in at WB Fitness, I’m going to start of with a loose series I’ll be doing for the site.  Every few posts I’ll post some lesser known lifts and workouts I’m doing, offer a video, an explanation, and why I’m using them.  Today I go over two lifts to help your triceps, back, traps and shoulders.

The Easyway to Quit Drinking

As some of you know, I did a post not too long ago about how I quit smoking.  2018  seems to be a year of change for me as I have put another habit I had wanted to quit to rest; alcohol.  I’ve found that despite the title of this post, that I had a harder time kicking booze than cigs.  Today I’ll give you guys a recap on why I decided to give up the sauce and how I decided to make it final.

Fritatta For Fitness Gains

Last week I was introduced to the magic of  a dish known as fritatta.  WB Fitness and La’darell Luthor both told me how great it was so I decided to give it a whirl for my meal prep this week.  I decided to add my own J. Nyx zing to this classic egg dish and it turned out so damn good I had to share the recipe and macros I’m getting with this delicious and easy to make food.

Don’t Skip Cardio Day

Weightlifting and Bodybuilding are pushed on many sites, including this one.  Every guy should be doing some sort of physical exercise where you are moving weights.  One aspect of fitness that is often pushed to the back burner is the cardio game.   WB Fitness has us doing 60 minutes daily now, and I have gone from someone who loathed the sight of a treadmill to someone who actually looks forward to it.  Today I’ll list the benefits of doing cardio, but I’ll really focus on how I went from a guy who just lifted weights, to one who does 60+ minutes of cardio after a tough lifting session.

Open Thread: Final Stretch ‘Til Summer Edition

Despite the weather and what seems like an endless winter, the unofficial start of summer is just 56 days away!!! That means nice weather and sun’s out guns out.  Are you close to your goals?  Are you still on the fence?  It’s not a lot of time but it’s doable to change your body enough to make this summer either one of regret or one of greatness.  I’m ramping up workout intensity and cardio in these last 2 months.  What are your goals?
