I've Gone Full Yoga

For about two solid months now, I’ve been drifting towards yoga as my only form of exercise. It might be hard to fathom. After all, I’m freaking JohnnyFit! For years I’ve been a jack of all trades. Hundreds of thousands of people have visited my blog to find out about kettlebells, TRX, bootcamps, and all things health and fitness.  Now I’m saying that I’ve gone full yoga!

New Year's Commitment

New Year’s resolutions fail. I know, because I’ve made them and none of them worked out. Why? Perhaps I didn’t want them bad enough. Or I forgot about them. We want change but we don’t want to expend the effort to affect that change.

Okay, I’m lazy. There. I said it. I’m lazy. I’d rather clean the kitchen, the bathroom, and shampoo the rugs than exercise. I hate it. It’s boring, it’s hard, and it’s exhausting. I don’t like the way it feels, I don’t like being hot and sweaty and sore, and I don’t like gasping for breath in public trying to walk up a hill.

HOW TO MIX UP YOUR EXERCISE ROUTINE

HEY SAM:  You mentioned “shocking” the muscles when you work out and doing different exercises. Does that mean that every time you work out, it’s good to always change your workout, or should you be consistent and change your workout routine every couple weeks? -Joseph, Los Angeles

The body responds rapidly to any weightlifting or exercise routine, and yes, it’s important to continually challenge your muscles by “mixing it up.” When I train clients, I make sure to change up their routine (on average) every four weeks (or every 8-12 workouts).
