Hey All,

Sorry for the delay, here’s this mornings workout, I was busy all day and didn’t have the opportunity to post anything today. Today’s workout was written by coach and he loves legs, unlike me, so it was pretty darn tough. If you’re looking to crush your legs (and surprisingly your shoulders) you’ve come to the right place.

Hey All,

Didn’t post yesterday’s workout, it wasn’t too complicated just some back and arms. Today is much more interesting, be it a crossfit, and be it a lot more challenging than originally anticipated. My workout buddies asked that I make a full body workout, so today tears up your legs, chest, arms, back, abs, and heart.

Good Morning fellow knowledge seekers,

Here’s today’s workout of the day. It’s a crossfit that I came up with on my mile warmup, slightly harder than anticipated but not bad. All you need is a pullup bar, barbell, and a box – today’s focus was on legs, back, and abs. Continue reading

Workout of the Day (WOD) May 16th

Hey All,

I’ll try to post all of my daily workouts on here if anyone is motivated to virtually workout with me ๐Ÿ™‚

This week is rough since my regular gym is closed so this is the most I could do with the equipment my janky apartment complex will allow (Max 50 lbs free weights, Max 150 lb machine complex thing). Remember you can modify any of the exercises as need be and do as much weight as you are comfortable with.

No Music, No Life – First Post

ImageThis is my first blog post, hope you (whoever that is) enjoy it. Who knows if anyone will ever read this stuff, but I figured why not try it out. So without further adieu, here is my thoughts on life and music, this will probably come up many times in the future since I love music and cannot do anything without listening to music (most often Pandora streaming from my phone or computer, in my car and blasting from my headphones – which incidentally Frank stole, I need new ones if anyone wants to toss me some ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

Listen to music whenever you have the chance, it instantly makes you feel better, no matter what the situation. Life is based in emotions and every song can stimulate one or several emotions on contact โ€“ whether its reminding you of a party you went to 20 years ago or reminds you of the first dance you had with your wife at your wedding. Anything in life worth anything takes work โ€“ whether you are searching for wealth, fame, fitness, or friendship. Thereโ€™s no better way to put the work in for these goals than doing so with your favorite tunes on. Working out is nearly impossible without a workout buddy and if you cant convince your lethargic buddy to hop on a bike with you the next best training partner is your MP3 player (or tape-deck if youโ€™re old-school). Even as a write this article I am still rocking out to some tunes, speaking of which this song is awful, give me one second to change it โ€“ a little Vertical Horizon, takes me back. So back to working out with music – I could not have worked out today without my android spitting out Country Radio. Since my coach and workout buddy cancelled on me today I decided to take a nice long bike ride in the 82 degree weather – most beautiful day so far this year. After I rode 6 miles around the lake front, past the college, and through the beautifully gaudy town – I got back on the bike path and my rear tire decided to pop for the 3rd time in 3 weeks – damn Dan’s Bike Shop not replacing my tube but probably patching it – that doesn’t work anymore for a 12 year old BMX bike when an old man is peddling as fast as he can to catch up with the 86 year olds sporting $5000 bikes in Lake Forest haha. But after it popped a friend of mine was kind enough to allow me to drag my bike into her garage for the night and begin my long treck back to the ole apartment (only a 2.5 mile run) but I friggen’ hate running. On any day in any condition I would rather sprint a mile in the water than jog a mile in the sunny breeze. But after my 20 minute stroll complemented perfectly by my country radio – I made it! Probably my fastest 2.5 miles ever – thanks in large part to Carrie Underwood and Eric Church who made the last mile a lot more enjoyable.

Until Next Time,

Mike
