The Good News

There aren’t any rules!  There are things that I suggest doing, though:

  • Don’t drive around a parking lot looking for the closest spot; it’s okay to walk.
  • Push the limits while working out…get that last rep, run a second faster with your intervals, & take less rest in between sets.
  • Take your sleep seriously, even if you are 23 years old.
  • Talk and ask questions of others who have accomplished your goals.
  • Skip the elevators and escalators.
  • Find a training partner.
  • Eat veggies and fruit.
  • Drink water.
  • Make sure you eat adequate protein.
  • Get outside, walk, hike, read, or just be.
  • Use the 3-8 lb. dumbbells for a warm up.
  • Do not compare yourself to others! So what if they are skinnier, stronger, or have better abs.  There is no faster way to feel S*&tty about yourself!
  • Squat, deadlift, and shoulder press.


Remember This

Don’t be lazy or sedentary.  Mother nature will be very unkind to you. There is no alternative for exercise, it has to get done.
