“So You Want To Build A Home Gym”

I walked into the commercial gym yesterday after a long day of work excited to begin my workout. After warming up I proceeded to the squat rack to start my resistance training workout. I unfortunately ran into a bit of a roadblock. I was planning on starting with some Back Squats but there was a young man in the power rack performing barbell biceps curls with horrible form (a definite no-no!).

I decided to go to Plan B and rearrange my workout only to find that the flat benches were all occupied as well. This trend continued and everywhere I turned the equipment I desired was being used. I was happy that so many people were working out but at the same time I was frustrated that my well-laid plans were spoiled. I learned a long time ago that it is …

Weight Matters

Are looks that important? Do women care about weight? We certainly do…but not for the reasons you may think.
 
Right about now, you’re thinking that I’m suggesting that looks are everything and if you’ve got it, you’re in and if you don’t then you’re out of luck. This assumption only scratches the surface and doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. Let me make it simple: we care about how you look and the confidence you exude when you’re taking care of yourself because it’s a sign of your sense of personal value. When you genuinely value yourself, you have passion and vitality. This vitality will ensure that you’re around a lot longer. If you’re around longer, then we get to enjoy your company, companionship and love much longer. This taps into the primate nature of the female brain. It appeals to my sense …

Fit Over Fat, Fitness

A few kids have actually died from the flu this year here in Colorado one of them 15 years old! Being healthy is one thing I know I often take for granted until I get sick, that is. I’ve found that it’s easier to stay healthy than it is to get healthy again once you’re sick, too. With that in mind (and the season just getting underway), here are some quick tips for staying healthy this wrestling season:

Eat well. This means eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, the best way to get all the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy.

Front Bias, Left Bias, and Cross Weight: Suspension Tuning with Weight Adjustments

Static Weight: Front Bias and Left Bias

The most fundamental way of changing the handling of your car is by redistributing the weight. The weight distribution of a car is determined by literally placing a scale under each wheel. When making weight distribution adjustments, you must consider the weight transitions that the car experiences while you are driving. For example, when you accelerate, weight shifts toward the back of the car onto the rear wheels. When you turn right, weight shifts to the left side of the car. You can feel these weight transfers on your body while you are driving.

Weight Loss

The mechanics of weight loss is simple; energy lost must be greater than energy gained. You gain energy from the various foods and other nutritional supplements you consume; you lose energy through regular everyday activities, even breathing. The problem is a body at rest or doing regular activities does not utilize most of the energy that is consumed from the average American diet. The result is weight gain. All that extra energy is converted to fat and stored for later use, the problem is, that fat will sit there and keep building up and it has nowhere to go.

Basically, we want to increase how much work our …
