So today was all about legs.

We started with some squats. Utilizing a step and a dumbbell. Slightly inclined feet, dumbbell in front. This was another of those evil ones - sounds easy and achievable, but really hurt! So anyway, 3 sets, two with weight, one just bodyweight. Once I got the idea (and stopped trying to cheat a little) they went well, but there...

Sadly, it is not possible to alter the metabolism you were born with. If you have a slow metabolism you can't just "wish" your metabolism would accelerate. The good news is regular exercise can help boost your metabolism. This post is about just that!

When you ask players what a point guard's job is, you'll get mixed results. The majority will always respond with answers ranging from 3 pointers, crossovers and the like. The sheer number of players I encounter that have no idea what the job entails is troubling. This misunderstanding of the game and their role in it trickles down and causes so many hang...

I know the idea of not eating junk seems a little sad. I like donuts, chips, fries, etc. but I don't eat them. I know that to have a healthy body, it is important that I eat a lot of fruits and veggies. Reaching into your pocket for money to feed the vending machine when you are hungry is tempting but luckily there are a lot of healthy treats that are ava...
