Hi there! It’s Get With The Program time again. This workout was literally created in my driveway the other day when time ran short and I used my resistance bands and my bodyweight for an awesome workout. As I’ve mentioned before, I love the feel of using bands instead of traditional weights. Plus they’re portable, cheap, and super easy to use.
For this workout I had limited time, so for those of you on the go, or perhaps away on vacation or a business trip, it’s perfect. It should only take about 35 – 40 minutes and of course it’s a More >
In my recent “Are All Calories Created Equal” post, I discussed how important it was to understand the quality of various calories, their benefits, and how to use them in an intelligent eating regimen. As my piece made clear – no, not all calories are created equal.
Guess what? The same holds true when it comes to various forms of exercise. Each modality, or form, has a specific function and provides unique benefits to the human body. There is a lot of crossover, meaning that some forms have multiple benefits, while others are a bit more one-dimensional.

Alfonso, your advice has helped me so much before…now I find myself needing your sage words yet again!
I had my morning session with my trainer and following, he told me he is going to be away for some time (like weeks). Call me a weakling, but some panic set in. I refused to allow the fear to consume me. I thought maybe this is a good time to challenge myself to make sure I keep up my accountability and set a program for myself during the time he’s away. He did want me to log my routine and food More >
It’s Get With The Program time again, where I give you a fantastic workout based on my twenty years in the fitness industry. Today’s workout is all about your rear end – also known as your cheeks, backside, or butt!
Don’t confuse size with functionality. J-Lo may have quite an asset, but that doesn’t mean it’s fit and in tip-top shape (figuratively speaking). Having great glute strength is crucial to your overall body strength. The glutes help stabilize your hips in most standing movements, can provide protection for the lower back, and assist in knee stabilizing- especially when your standing on one More >
Hi there – I hope you’re all doing terrific. It’s time for another Angry Trainer workout…
I really enjoy writing these programs for you and today is no exception.
Today’s full body workout is all about time – 1 minute to be exact. For each exercise you’ll perform a number of reps and keep moving for an entire minute. The idea is to not stop and continuously move from one exercise to the next, so choose your weights carefully. In addition, you’ll be alternating exercises from upper to lower body. This workout will show you that time has a way of sneaking More >
Hey everyone. How are you all doing? It’s Get With The Program time again…
Today I’m introducing 50/50, in which half of the workout is straight, full body weight training, and the other half consists of cardio and calisthenics.
The weight training features super-set style training, and you’ll be performing two exercises for the same muscle group back to back. In addition, the body is divided in half as well; upper and lower. The beauty of this workout is that YOU chose which half to do first – either weights or cardio. Try switching it each time for a new stimulus.

Our content has been evolving at a rapid rate and it’s due to you, our readers, who write in, ask questions and post comments.

It’s time for another installment of Why Your Workout Isn’t Working – our weekly feature where we discuss how you can upgrade your fitness results!
So far we’ve tackled Goal Setting and Exercise Selection. But today is all about Consistency. You see most people are horribly inconsistent with their exercise program, in fact the only consistency they do demonstrate is to not have any! It’s true. I know people with great intentions that workout like gangbusters for weeks, almost everyday, and then miss an entire week, workout 2 times the following week, then once the next, then go full throttle again, and More >
