No Bullshit

Exercise Reference Guide

I’ve been sort of busy in the last 8 months or so. Sold my condo and moved into a house with a big enough basement to setup my gym with all the equipment I had accumulated. Added a power rack. And looking to add a few more pieces that my gym-gym does have. But that’s […]

The Murph is Coming on May 31, 2021

Murph is one of the most celebrated Hero WOD in CrossFit created by and named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy who was KIA in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. I’ve never done this workout, but do plan to this year on Memorial Day in the United States on May 31st, 2021. The Murph has five […]

New Year Resolutions are Crap

I don’t do new year resolutions of any sort for the one simple reason that they always fail. With all the best intentions in the world, without a plan they always result in failure. People try too hard, expect too much, and give up too easily. Around October last year, due to year end pressures […]

How I Learned to Increase Calories Burned

Burning a lot of calories doesn’t take a lot of effort. But it does take more effort than you think. If you’re like me, you’ve looked at those graphs that tell you how many calories you can expect to burn in 30 minutes. Or an hour. It’s seems pretty impressive. Riding my bike for 60 […]

Summer Review – 2020 – Running

I’ve been running now for about three years. I mean running for running’s sake. Running to improve my fitness. Running to improve my lung capacity and breathing. And running to burn calories. But here’s the thing about running for running’s sake. It’s like being on a deserted island by yourself and your own thoughts. I […]

Weekly Bullshit # 4 – I’m I over my head

This year I’ve been doing a whole bunch of different sports. It started out with doing functional training at home for the first few months of 2020 when all went to hell. Then around May I started running again; I still wasn’t an efficient runner so it was a bit of a challenge. Then I […]

Fitter, Stronger, Zzzzzzzzz.

Ever since I’ve been working from home, and gotten my Whoop, I’ve been trying to get better sleep. If you’ve never used a tool like Whoop, or the Oura ring, they are tools used to help you get proper rest and provides feedback on your recovery progress. The better quality your sleep, the better your […]

Heading Back to the Gym…What I Learned During Lockdown

Last week I went back to the gym for the first time in four months. It felt very different than the work outs that I’ve done since the lockdown happened. If you were anywhere on social media at the beginning, the message was that you should walk out of the lockdown having learned something new. […]

Getting Fitter, Stronger. And Angrier

It’s week ten or eleven of Lockdown. Maybe event twelve. No stupid zombies. Shitty weather. One day a week I shop for supplies. With my sanitizer in my pocket and face mask on. It’s dreadful. And even stressful sometimes. Every day is the same. I wake up, eat breakfast, take a shower, then sit at […]
