Another week has passed and in just one month I’ll be on stage at a local bodybuilding show.
This week was tough for me as I really pushed myself hard and may have over-trained a bit. Plus I had a mighty big surprise – I GAINED weight! I had reached
a low of 199 pounds at the beginning of the week, which I hadn’t been since the age of 21. Just yesterday I weighed myself and I’m 205! Trust me when I say I’m perplexed.
It can’t be water weight because this week I cut way back on carbohydrates and my diet closely More >
It’s time for another Angry Issue her at the site, where I ask you all a question pertaining to health and fitness for your honest feedback. Today’s question is actually a poll of sorts:
Do you use weight lifting gloves? And if so, why?
I have to say that I haven’t had a pair of workout gloves on my hands for probably close to 20 years. I never really liked them and truthfully only wore them early on because they looked kind of cool – they contributed to the gym rat look. But I felt that I lost some grip and feel More >
I have a weight loss question… how important are total number of carbs per day when it comes to losing weight?
I am counting calories, but should I be counting total carbs also? If so, what is a good number per day to aim for? My boyfriend says you cannot lose fat by eating carbs, but if its all about total number of calories can’t a person still lose weight by counting those alone? Confusing.
I am aiming to keep my calories around 1,500 per day and increasing protein intake to 1 gram per pound of body weight. Those two things seem More >
It’s been a while since I’ve shared my thoughts on a popular infomercial product or fitness DVD. So today I’m talking about TapouT XT a mixed martial arts (MMA) workout program and infomercial that caught my eye.
Sure the marketing is great, but is it a good program for you to follow?
Here’s my Angry Trainer take…
I just found your blog and I love it – please help:
I used to work out all the time but I ate terribly, smoked and drank. In the last 5 years I’ve quit smoking, hardly drink and I don’t eat processed foods. BUT I’ve become lazy.
I’m in perfect medical health and last year I even gave my uncle a kidney! Now at 36 and with 1 kidney I really need to be as healthy as I can for the rest of my life.
I tried starting P90X but it’s SO intense. Here’s the kicker – I have a heavy bag, More >
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a simple tip to help you become fitter, healthier and possibly help you to lose some weight.
Today’s Change It Up is as simple as they come – three words in fact. Leave A Little.
So what exactly do I mean? Well here’s the deal. When I meet people they always ask what my suggestions are for food, which is the best diet and how can they lose weight fast?
Now I could tell them to change their lifestyle overnight but as I’ve said before – that’s a recipe for disaster. When it comes to an More >
Can you believe a week has already passed and I’m just 5 weeks from showtime? For those of you just joining me, I decided to once again compete in a local amateur bodybuilding show. And it’s now just over ONE month away!
As you all know, I’m training using ONLY resistance bands – Bodylastics to be exact. I know many of you are afraid of trying band only workouts and have asked how my workouts are going. So today I took a few pictures while in the gym to show you how I set things up. I’ve said it before and More >
Okay – now I’m spoiling you!
Head on over to my Angry Trainer Fitness You Tube channel and you’ll find THREE – yep, THREE – new videos that I’ve just posted up. These are the last three of our GNC sponsored workouts and I can tell you that they’re certainly keeping me in shape and on my toes!
While you check them out I want to tell you more about one of the programs that I call the Lunge, Push, Pull Workout or LPP. You down with LPP?
Okay, all kidding aside I’ll share why I put this workout together. There are days More >
