Back in action and new workout routine

Category: Fitness    

It has been about two weeks that I had taken off from lifting and any form of working out. I was feeling extremely under the weather; I don’t know if I had a cold or virus, or the weather changes here in New Jersey or just overall not getting enough sleep. I had a hard time having any kind of energy to workout and was feeling really weak and lethargic all the time. If I don’t workout in the morning, before work, I don’t usually have the time after work for a proper workout. You ...

Falling off the fitness wagon

Category: Life Lessons    

I hate to admit it but recently I’ve fallen off the workout wagon and it isn’t for lack of desire or drive, but I have found myself out of the gym for about two weeks now and feeling pretty down about it. Over the last few weeks my energy has hit rock bottom and I’ve been extremely fatigued, weak and tired. I am not quite sure if it has to do with the weather or lots of germs going around (a ton of people I know have gotten strep throat, the flu and colds), but needless to say I ...

Video: the best abdominal exercises for a strong core

A video that showcases my favorite ab exercises to help achieve a strong, chiseled core.

I have received a good amount of questions from those of you doing the 12 Week Workout Program about what ab exercises I do or recommend, so here it is.

Video - Circuit Training Round 2 Routine for Abs and Total Body

This is round 2 of my circuit training series that is easily done at home or smaller gyms. No gym machines are required to do this routine.

– 5 reps of alternating shoulder raises, T raises and sho ...

At home workout ideas and equipment to stay in shape

Category: Fitness    

I haven’t posted a workout or fitness routine in a few weeks, I have been slacking I know. I have been focusing a bit more on running lately and just kind of fell off the wagon (see, we all do it) but in the mean time I have been taking time to do very simple at home workouts that don’t require any machines. All you need is a pair of dumb bells, a mat and maybe a short barbell with plates. Right now I am ramping up to start lifting heavy again, which I do in the fall and winter but fo ...
