    Does your Neck hurt when you do ABS??

    I have a great story to tell you!! Years ago there used to be this guy at the gym… Let’s name him Eddie.  Eddie would come to the gym once, maybe twice a week.  He would come in and do a set of ABS… just one set!!  But that set had a few hundred reps… LOL 🙂 But wait… it gets better!!!  Eddie would lay on a Physio ball and bounce up and down on the ball counting hundreds of reps out.  Next he would walk around the gym and brag to everyone that he just did 500 ABS!! I guess whatever makes you happy… Right!! Below is a pic…

    White Rice Vs. Brown Rice

    Here is the age old question that every person starting out in fitness and an healthier lifestyle always asks??  “What is better for you, White Rice or Brown Rice??

I finally had him doing some healthy things for his body and then it happened. He went to a buddies wedding, got drunk, and over ate unhealthy food all day! Sean felt like crap the following day and then I heard the best quote I’ve ever heard.…

    Your Health Your Responsibility

    Time and time again I hear excuses and even worse “blame” for why someone is not in shape, or just healthy in general. My favorite is when they blame someone else for the reason they are out of shape and unhealthy!! Hearing this drives me crazy! It’s “Your Health Your Responsibility” Making Excuses/Denial We have all heard it a thousand times. The endless excuses of why someone can’t seem to get to the gym or workout at all!! Some of my favorites are: “Its Friday” (this one is just stupid), “I worked out yesterday” (yeah I know… that was yesterday), “My energy levels are low” (ahh… yeah no shit… its…
