 Good morning! I hope that you all had a great summer.  I am very excited to be starting up my weekly blog again!  For any new readers, each week throughout the fall, winter, and spring I will write an article on a different fitness-related topic.  As the weeks go on, feel free to let me know of any topics you would like covered.  I am even willing to research your particular topic so that I can write about it for you as comprehensively as possible!  Enjoy.

So the other day I ran through the basics of a solid resistance training plan to include in your training arsenal IF your goal is to lose weight and gain lean body mass. If you read my last blog then you learned about phases 1 and 2; Stabilization Endurance and Strength Endurance. Today, we’ll take a look at Phase 3 (Hypertrophy) and Phase 4 (Maximal Strength)

So here I am, a newly minted Sports Performance Professional. I have studied the excellent NASM material to enhance sports performance and am eager to apply my knowledge. As I read and studied and thought about it, it struck me how applicable and modifiable those concepts are to every client. We all need to generate power in our lives at one point or other. The challenge in training is to stay on the right side of the line where the benefits of the exercises justify possible risks.

 Good Morning! Today I would like to talk to you about foam rolling and its benefits. Often not understanding the full benefits that it offers, most people see the grey cylindrical device as a form of forced torture. When performed correctly, foam rolling offers your body many benefits, both during your workout and post-workout.

 Good Morning! Today I would like to talk about how to properly incorporate bodyweight training into your workout routine. While weight training IS absolutely essential for your progress, it should NOT be the only way that you are training. You do not have to walk into the gym and put up as much weight as possible every time you work out. If you can move your own body via push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, ab wheel rollouts, etc., you are better off than people who lift heavy weights yet cannot do a pull-up.

 Good afternoon! Today I would like to talk about synergistic dominance. Lately, I have seen a few people with this problem so I figured I would dig a little deeper into it, especially because most people do not even know that it is going on in their bodies.

 Good Morning! Most people say that they do not exercise because they are too tired. Would you believe that these people are probably more tired BECAUSE they are not exercising? This is actually a very tough cycle to break, which is part of the reason why 70% of Americans are inactive (do not exercise 20 minutes 3-4 times per week). Exercise has many benefits with which you are probably familiar:

 Good Afternoon!  There is a workout-related adage that is as old as time:  “three sets of ten reps.” You’ve probably heard an old school gym-goer repeat that to a newbie trying to figure out a workout, or maybe you’ve even been that old school gym-goer yourself.
