The Shift To The Suck…

Entry Img

Polar Vortex is what the call it and I suppose it has something to do with Eskimos, Santa and serious cold.  The Tuesday night before it crept into Kansas City I was in a tank top and out for a run at 70 degrees.  I was out that night walking the dog and the cold […]

Letter From Athlete

Entry Img

Got this from an athlete wanting to train at our gym and wondering why we do what we do.  The science supports basis on my statement but more importantly I think this addresses the concern of a lot of guys/gals who do our work and train for different types of endurance sports… Hi Ben, I’m […]

The Basics. Please.

Entry Img

I arrived at the station this morning and by the time I had transitioned my gear from my floor locker to the rig the bells were ringing.  We went back to back to back right out of the gates. Some poor guy at one of our numerous dialysis centers was circling the drain, from there […]

Course Correction

Entry Img

It’s been grinding on me to get something up.  Grinding lots. I just finished the company officer promotion process last week.  The first thing I did upon completion was shut it down and catch up on some much needed rest.  That lasted almost 24 hours. Company officers on my department, Kansas City, Missouri (yeah the […]

The Real Problem With Ray Rice

Entry Img

I am watching the game right now.  Somehow, someway my Kansas City Chiefs have actually taken the lead against Peyton and the Donkey’s.  I love the sport, love the game and there is nothing that rivals the product that the NFL delivers.  In general we are consumed by the entire product life cycle.  The Draft, […]

My List – What Is Yours?

Entry Img

If my life were to end tomorrow in some sort of fiery automobile or airplane crash and I was to list the 10 most important parts of my workout life; or if due to this rapid change of events I was to be limited to only doing 10 different exercises or activities for the rest […]

10 Is 10

Entry Img

Ten is ten no matter how you think you are going to cut it or how bad you fake it.  I’m talking about pull ups or any other sort of repetitive motion with or without resistance added to it.  Keep this in mind as you read on, this is about exercise with a case study […]

Pre Planning Your Fitness Goals

Entry Img

I feel like a total wanker of late.  Maybe less wanker and more poser. Yesterday I was cleared to ride my bike for the first time in 6 weeks.  So I did.  Left hand completely restrained in my splint, only able to balance it on my handle bar.  Baby stepping it off the curbs. My […]

Activity or Accomplishment?

Entry Img

No doubt I am going to get flamed on these things, especially so long as I put them out in the public domain but I am more than fine with that.  I probably keep it just a bit too simple and real and most guys/gals want to over think and overdue just about anything so […]
