We’re coming down to the wire. It’s been an active past couple of days, so we’ll dial it back today. Today’s mission…go for a walk and read two fitness articles or blogs. It’s a day of learning and reflection. Try to squeeze in at least a 20 minute walk. Go to the park. Around the block. Take a few moments for some light cardio and quiet contemplation. And strengthen your mind by reading two fitness articles. Maybe it’s looking for […]
Day 17…boxing day! Boxing and boxing conditioning are the only forms of training where I feel I’ve given it my all. I went for 8 rounds today on the heavy bag and some shadow boxing. Three minute rounds with a one minute rest break between. Keep that body moving as best as you can and keep those punches flying! No heavy bag? Shadow box it out! Jabs, crosses, hooks, upper cuts…just keep them coming and keep your body in motion.
We’re at the half way point. Let’s keep rolling…stay with it. Today we will focus on cardio and foam rolling! Start with 20 minutes of cardio – your choice. And then let’s finish with some good old foam rolling. Foam rollers help with pre and post workout flexibility my initiating self myofascial release. Self myofascial release works on the fascial system (the tissue that surrounds and wraps each muscle in our body). By gently rolling on the foam, […]

Ok…let’s try this…again… This is what my last semester of school did to me. 14-16 hour days of class, work, studying, and attempting to maintain workouts. High stress, lack of sleep and overall bad eating led to weight gain and puffiness. I’m at 164 lbs. I wanted to be at 150 lbs. So I start again. School is done. Boards are in July. I’m basically in limbo until I pass my boards and find full-time work. I plan on using […]
