Blog Post 5/50: Silly Silly Fun Time

I posted on the Facebook group a while back asking for suggestions on what to write about in subsequent blogs and you guys came through phenomenally! A lot of your questions and suggestions are silly and fun and I want to answer them. However, I feel that an entire blog for every individual question would be a little much so I’m going to go through and rapid-fire style answer some of them and save some of the serious ones for an actual blog post later on. Off we go! Brandon Randolph says:...

Blog 4/50. Strength or Cardio?

I realize that this is a pretty “click-baity” title but I think it’s an interesting topic to discuss. And this is my blog post. And I’ll cry if I want to. I think if you asked the average person whether they should focus on strength or cardio they would probably either say “They’re both equally important” or they’d pick cardio. I think most of the population still worries about their heart health and of course, lifting weights isn’t good for...

Even scarier is what the majority of people think is “doing well”. We all live in our own customized bubbles. To some extent we have control over what information we consume, who we listen to, and who we spend time with. 90% of the time you can either find me at home or at the gym. 9.5% of the last 10% is the grocery store or eating. Some...

Hey guys! You can’t get to a streak of 50 without starting with a streak of 2, so here we are! My last post was about going a month without “fixes”. These can come in forms besides what you consume but for now, we will focus on substances. Those include caffeine, sugar, alcohol, and foods that are higher in carbs. So what are we supposed to eat then? And when? In Greg Glassman’s “World Class Fitness in 100 Words”, he starts it with “Eat meat and vegetabl...

50 Blogs in 50 weeks!

Hey there, hi there, ho there, neighbors!   Last year, I tried to write a blog post every month. Earlier in the year, I was doing pretty well. However, eventually my lack of what I thought were “good” ideas and then programming Wod’s caused me to fall off. Andrea’s commitment to doing something for an entire year+ have inspired me to think, why not just do one every week? This way maybe I won’t feel so much pressure to write something profound and deeply inform...
