Lifting gains can be made for a couple reasons – sometimes they are due to improvements in technique and sometimes because of increases in strength. Below are two technique tips and two strength drills for to try so you can make some #gainz.

It’s time to get in shape – it’s been awhile since you’ve been thinking about it, and you just don’t know where to start. What about running? Seems like the easiest form of exercise – the least amount of equipment needed and no need to be paying for a gym membership. What do you really need to...

The first thing people usually think when they want to lose weight is how to slash their calories so that they can lose weight as quickly as possible.  Calorie restriction is no joke and you could really do a lot of damage to your body.

The holidays are a time to spend with family and friends, but food is a central part of the holiday tradition for most people.

If you are like me, you get sick of being on the treadmill for any longer than… five seconds.  The key is to try and make your workouts fun, entertaining, challenging, and of course intense.  I’ve created a treadmill workout that is bound to make your fat cells cry.

So, we are meal preppers and we are feeling pretty confident as we pack away our meals for a week of healthy lunches. We have lunchtime in the bag (so to speak!). But do we really? There are a bunch of lunchtime mistakes that even the most careful meal prepper can overlook from time to time....

Typically, fans of meal prepping set aside a couple of hours on Sunday to organize, shop, chop, cook and store. Then, they have meals in the refrigerator or freezer to pull out throughout the week – this can be one meal a day or all three, plus snacks. When you cook in bulk like this, you will...

Being a student athlete is hard work- you have to balance school, practice, games and maybe even a job. Eating to fuel your body for games and competitions may seem like just one more thing to add to your plate (pun intended!) and unnecessary but it’s actually crucial for performance. Sports...
