You’ve seen hundreds of specific exercises, classes and machines being billed as ‘core’ developers. And we’ve all heard the famous ‘draw your belly button’ in line from various trainers. But do these exercises really work?
It seems they may be a total waste of your time!
You’ve heard me say before that the term ‘core’ is grossly misused within the fitness industry and truthfully mostly misunderstood by trainees. The core encompasses ALL of the muscles of the trunk and provides for critical spinal stability.
Yet somehow the genius marketers in the fitness industry figured out a way to market this area of More >
This was my very first Angry Issues post from September 2011 and sadly not much has changed since then. In this day I cannot believe that people still smoke; it’s disgusting, it’s harmful and downright nasty. Just the other day I was with my kids walking behind a family with three kids in tow. Both parents were puffing away (one holding an infant) and it was apparent they had totally disregarded the truth about the negative effects of second and third hand smoke.
Read this post and let me know your thoughts.
Should ALL Public Smoking Be Banned?
Today I thought I’d ask More >
How lucky am I? I mean seriously, not only do I get to live a fitness driven lifestyle and make a living, but also I get to try products for review.I wake up every day and love what I do!
The good people at FRS Healthy Energy sent me a sample package of their Healthy Energy products. I was intrigued, especially because a lot of energy supplements and drinks have been in the news lately – not in favorable light I may add.
I was sent the FRS protein shakes, the energy drinks (cans) and a few chew packs. I’m going to More >
You may also know that I’ve recently started working as a Fitness Manager for NYSC. Well Steve has been with the company for over 6 years and runs the ‘front of the house’. When I met Steve for the first time, within minutes he was showing me an old picture of himself from when he played football. For one reason or another, at the age of More >
So lets hear it for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – lets all give him a round of applause for undergoing lap band surgery to lose weight.
I’m kidding. In my mind he simply gave up.
Christie’s weight has made news before – first some speculated he would make for an unfit President and used subliminal fat jokes in political campaigns. Then the Governor was hospitalized due to an asthma attack that again brought his weight front and center. And most recently, a former White House doctor was quoted saying she was worried for his health and that he may have a More >
You already know that I love my Reebok gear. I just received an awesome pair of the Sublite Duo’s that I’ve been running in and they rock! They’re light, not too spongy and they look darn snazzy!
But this post isn’t about my sneakers, no no (although the Sublite’s are AWESOME!). Today it’s about the Bose SIE2 headphones that Reebok sent me.
The reason why I wanted to share this is because in all honesty I have very rarely listened to my own music during workouts. And it’s been for a variety of reasons. First and foremost I could never find ear More >
Angry Trainer, can I ask a simple question?
When is it time to accept your limitations? I have eaten clean and trained hard now for two years and yes I have made gains. I am now 28% body fat (you do not want to know where I started) and I am benching my body weight and squatting double my body weight (which again, you do not want to know).
I am starting to think that this is my best. I do not want to relax or go back to that sad woman on the couch watching other women live their lives but More >
