Focus T25 Program

Focus T25 Program Have you heard about the new Focus T25 workout program?  It’s a new offering by Shaun T that isn’t available yet, but will launch this summer.  The workouts are shorter than Insanity and Asylum (25 minutes each).  And you only workout 5 days per week instead of 6 (this is similar to the concept of P90X2 which went with a 5 day per week calendar).  Since the workouts are...

Drinking Before Bed

Drinking Before Bed It seems like it is almost part of the American culture to have a few drinks in the evening before bed.  So with all the new information about how some alcohol can be good for you (such as red wine) and knowing that a lot of people like to “relax” in the evening with an adult beverage I did a little research.

Bust That Plateau!

Bust That Plateau! I talked about it a long time ago (see Plateau?  Here’s what to do) and we all know that sooner or later we all hit some kind of plateau.  While P90X and other Beachbody programs are all designed to avoid plateaus, if you do them long enough even you will hit some kind of weight or strength plateau.  So I am revisiting plateaus and giving you ways to Bust That Plateau! Sleep...

Fight Stress with Supplements

Fight Stress with Supplements It is no big surprise that most of us do not get all the vitamins and nutrients we need from our daily diet.  If you are eating the “American diet” then you are not getting even close to what you need on a daily basis.
