Is the workplace to blame for inactivity? Some solutions for you and your employer.

In a recent Ipsos Reid poll we commissioned some interesting stats were discovered: 47% of working respondents believe that their job inhibits them from getting the amount of exercise they would like in a typical work week. 34% of working respondents said that they spend 6-8 hours being inactive at work during a typical work day (so nearly the entire work day). 76% of working respondents said they were exhausted at the end of the work day and that is why their job inhibits...

TRX Suspension Training: Have you tried it?

I've been an avid CrossFitter for almost 2 years now and just recently I've started to incorporate the TRX into some of my weekly WOD's.  I have to say I'm a believer now and have been noticing huge gains with both my static and dynamic lifts, as well, my core doesn't fatigue as quickly when doing sit-ups, ring dips, or pull ups.  Crazy, I know, I sound like an infomercial, but all you have to do is try it once and you'll know what I'm talking about. The below except is straight...

I am coming to an end with my 10 minute trainer program.  I have 2 workouts left and then it's onto another program.  Based on how much activities I did today, I would say that I am more active now then I have ever been.  I would also verge to say that the 10 minute trainer saved my life !  No not really, but it's true that prior to me starting this workout, I was on a one-way street to the back alleys of health.  Ooooo ver weight and oooover eating.

DAY 81 - 10 MINUTE TRAINER by Tony Horton "CARDIO" + "CARDIO CORE" + "UPPER BODY"... Almost at the finish line.

Saturday April 4, 2009 I'm almost there.  3 more workouts remaining and BAM!  Emeril Laggasse style.  Todays workout was great of course.  Today, I didn't bother wearing my polar Hr monitor.  I tried, but I think my chest strap is dead. The last three workouts are killer.  Total Body workout being the toughest of the bunch. The last week I have been awful in sticking with my eating plan.  I pack my lunches, but I don't eat them.  I eat out at BP, RR, WS...  Not good. Tomorrow, my...

DAY 79 - 10 MINUTE TRAINER by Tony Horton "UPPER BODY" + "ABS" + "CARDIO" my worst effort yet!

Thursday April 2, 2009 Today was my worst effort thus far becuase man did I F!@#k the dog on this workout.  I felt extremely beat.  I didn't even want to do the workout today.  I don't know why.  I'm happy that I did the workout anyhow.  Essentially I went through the motions.  The funny thing is that my lack of effort IS BETTER THAN a lot of peoples non effort!  On a positive note, the fact that I did the workout goes to show me my commitment to results.   MY POLAR A5 WORKOUT SUMMARY...
