Workout Wednesday – Squat, Drop, and Roll

 

The idea that I might be healthy enough to exercise with any regularity is a novel unto itself, full of conflict, suspense, and plot twists. But today, I will spare you the humiliating look into vast depths of what sloth-ism looks like and get right into why I am mildly curious about squats and all the pain that rightfully accompanies said exercise.

Workout Wednesday Wonder of Weights

 

If you are like me when I show up at the gym, just looking at the stair climber and elliptical machines causes mini heart palpitations. Scores of women and men dressed in skin-tight lycra intimidate me to the spandex moon and back. Then my eyes spot a corner of the room where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the free-weights roam untouched all day. I don’t look like Schwarzenegger, but…

Workout Wednesday “Does this make my butt look big?”

 

This may be the most misleading question on the planet. If you are a woman and you’ve found that these words have crossed your lips from the realm of reasonableness into the world of “Did I say that out loud” insanity, then you seek an answer to one of two real underlying questions. If you’re a man and are required to answer, you must know from which origination the question is asked. Difficult dilemma, and may God help you.

Workout Wednesday Real Top 10 Reasons People Exercise

 

The Top 10 reasons people exercise vary wildly depending on who you ask. My think tank discovered over 100 brilliant benefits for why a person should exercise. All are valid and noble so I’ve listed 10 of those reasons according to www.k-state.edu for your edification. Once you’ve skipped over that part (admit it, you’re going to skip it), you will find the Top 10 REAL reasons Continue reading “Workout Wednesday Real Top 10 Reasons People Exercise”

WORKOUT WEDNESDAY 1/2 MARATHON TRAINING SCHEDULE/SCHMEDULE

 

If I’m running 13.1 miles, it’s because I’m either being chased by Freddie Krueger wielding a gun, I’m attempting to outrun K-9 dogs from the local penitentiary, or I’m chasing the ice cream truck to snag one of those shortbread cream dreams. I understand that many of you crazy health nuts out there run to improve your quality of life. I have a personal theory that you’re endorphin junkies. But whatever your reason may be for running 331 linear acres, a strategic training plan should be developed and consistently followed. I am the living epitome of the word Beginner, so I’ll outline below the baby steps to hone you into “evading the Po Po” shape in 13-22 short weeks.

WORKOUT WEDNESDAY DEAR JOHN TO MY PERSONAL TRAINER

 

I’ve been in a pseudo barbaric relationship with my personal trainer for a year now. I’ve weighed pro against con and have arrived at the same conclusion each time – John has to go. Other than the humiliation heaped upon me and the excruciating pain he joyfully inflicts for one hour every week, he’s a tolerable guy. But the fairy tale must end sometime. Our Beauty and the Beast role-play is not really working for me. A girl can only be the Beast for so long. So, to my masochistic Beauty, I must say ‘fare thee well.’ I’ve enclosed this letter so that it may serve to guide you in future liasons and save some other Joe Schmoe from the agony of reaching for horizons that are clearly unattainable.

WORKOUT WEDNESDAY A-Z TECHIE WORKOUT TOGS

 

I neither claim to be a technology wizard nor a person who actually works out. But if I’m going to risk mimicking either role, why not multitask and land a perfect two-fer? I can at least be a poser plus look like I’m exercising my way into shape and appear tech savvy while sweating to the oldies. My technology department (consisting of one person) researched the most efficient way to pull off the greatest feat in all of workout land. The results are an astounding culmination of stylish gear that is both wearable and futuristic. So, if you plan to P90X or PiYo your physique into svelte celebrity status, this list will propel you onto the red carpet sporting “May the force be with you” workout togs.

MANIC MONDAY RIO de MIDWEST OLYMPIC GAMES

 

This month our neighbors to the South are hosting the 31st Olympiad. But being from the Midwest, I wanted to shed light on games that are no longer part of the formal International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) approved competition schedule. However, each unusual game was at one point part of the official summer or winter games over the last century. But don’t worry your pretty little Yankee head. These odd games thrive and are alive in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Nebraska. Rumors have been strategically leaked that the lesser known RNBKACH (Red Neck Bald Knobber Arkie Corn Husker) Committee is formulating a You Tube application process as of this writing.  Please note, that attempts to imitate these lesser-known games are done at your own risk. They should be recorded and immediately published for others’ enjoyment on the World Wide What-the…?!
