Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's now time to fall back into your fitness routine - no more excuses. Kids are back at school, vacations are over, and work schedules have gotten back to normal. Holiday engagements will be on hold until November, so we only have two months before we are immersed in the holidays.

Upending conventions about how best to strength train, a new study finds that people who lift relatively light weights can build just as much strength and muscle size as those who grunt through sessions using much heftier weights — if they plan their workouts correctly.

There’s nothing worse than walking out of the gym thinking welp, that was an hour of Netflix time I’ll never get back. Sure, there’s no such thing as a bad workout, but there is such thing as a great one. The good news? Every workout can feel extra satisfying with a few clever tweaks to make your gym session work harder for you.
Something I can count on every day at the gym is seeing someone attempting the latest get fit quick exercise they've seen in their favorite fitness social media outlet or magazine. Nine times out of ten they're performing the exercise incorrectly. On top of that, they most likely have no idea WHY they're doing that particular exercise in the first place. They saw someone else doing it and thought it looked cool to try.
Busy life, family, work, schedules etc.! I hear you! It is hard taking time and caring for yourself. Eating on the run, no time for workouts and stress rules, at times. I too have these challenges! It's about taking the small steps to keep you healthy enough to maintain that schedule and to be present for work and your family. Preventative care, is the key!
Never underestimate the value of training the basics, no matter the field or activity you're into. Your fundamentals are called that because that's precisely what they are. Don't just go back to them once in a while. See the basics in all things, no matter how advanced you are.
