Mark Kislich put up a strategy on his blog about eating 10 eggs spread out over a day to introduce a high protein day in his diet. Varying the amount of protein you eat works well, because your body adapts to protein intake if you keep it the same each day.

Have you ever heard of the “Tabata Protocol”? It isn’t a brand new way of performing cardio, but it is rarely discussed in fitness circles anymore. It is really too bad, because I think many people could benefit tremendously by incorporating it into their workout routines.

So What is The Tabata Protocol?

The Tabata Protocol is an interval routine developed by the head coach of the Japanese Speed Skating team.

James Bond Workout

The new James Bond, Daniel Craig, has quickly become a fitness icon. In Casino Royale, Craig really showed us what a nice toned physique looks like. In 1999, Brad Pitt attained what could be considered the ideal physique in the movie Fight Club. While both of these guys are in great shape, I would say that Daniel has a bit more muscle. If I was to teach someone how to get a body like Brad Pitt, [click to continue…]

Have You Ever Actually Tried to Workout by Jumping Rope?

Seriously…most people have just played around with a jump rope back in Elementary School. A lot of people think of jumping rope as more of a game or a kid’s toy…the ironic thing is that it is actually an extremely effective form of exercise.
