This weekend, I went with a good friend of mine (I’ll call him Luke) on a two night backpacking trip. I took my five oldest kids (ages 13, 11, 9, 8, and 5) and Luke took his three oldest (ages 11, 10 and 8, all boys). Because they never went on an overnight pack packing trip before, I decided to do a Continue reading “Benefits of Playing Outdoors”

At WB Fitness we follow a strict workout and diet routine. It is designed to be brutal but efficient in making you lean, cut and looking good. We adhere to this regimen to achieve the results we desire, but everyone who spends time in the gym knows all about that day where you make it to the gym, but your mind isnt here. The music isnt working. You’re dreading that next lift. So what do you do? You’re already there, so dont waste the time. Today I’ll talk about a fun thing you can do to get your head right, get some reps in, and get back on track.

For most of us, summer is basically here already. While the “unoffical” start is Memorial Day, the nice weather makes me want to get outside and do things. I want to be out in the sun, with the family, enjoying the day and each others company. Yet, as simple as this may seem, I’m seeing a disturbing trend these days with families, and especially children. There seems to be a lack in the desire to spend time together outside. Today I’ll go over why this is a problem, and what you can do to maximize your summer.

Do you guys know that couple that are always doing something together? You rarely ever see them apart and they tend to engage in all the same activities together. Last weekend I witnessed a couple like this. The guy a legit hard working guy and his fiance a good mom, but they have a flaw; they feel the need to spend every free second together. This is commonplace for many married couples I see, and in my opinion, it leads to a boring, miserable existence. Today I’ll go over why this is toxic to you, your wife, and your relationship and what you can do about it.

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.

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.

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.
