Repeat and practice: "I don't know the whole story"

In the wake of the death of Robin Williams, I was surrounded by many an incredulous statement:  "I just can't understand that kind of sadness"  "How could a man with EVERYTHING do something like that?" "It seems the ultimate act of weakness" and "It just doesn't make sense"

"Whole 30" Prelude

Over the next 33 days I will be taking you on a journey.This journey will be a daily documented walk through my life of exercise and nutrition.  Today, as well as days 2 & 3 will be more about the preperation and set-up to help me get ready to tackle the next 30 days.  I do not normally look at my nutrtion and exercise as "30 day challenges", however that is what I am asking of you. Challenge yourself to be as good as you can be for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days you will see results. 

Golfers! Corrective Exercise For Low Back Pain

Any golfers out there? Golf is a great summer activity and the average male will expend about 620 calories during an 18-hole round!! Not a bad way to get some activity in.

Well, if you know me then you know I love debunking fitness myths, busting excuses and not playing nice with the latest weight lose "gimmicks"

Forward Bends in Yoga

Any yoga practice is made up of a sequence of postures. While the time each posture is held generally one moves toward longer holds, and finally to rest, usually in shavasana. While the same postures will not be in every practice, a practice usually will include a variety of postures, chosen to balance direction of movement and areas of stretch and so on. It is the flow and balance between the postures that matters, as much as the postures themselves. There are hundreds of postures, though many of these are variations on what I would call base postures.
