A famous quote my Alfred E. Newman, of my favorite childhood magazine MAD. As I said in my last blogpost, my mantra is "every day is Monday". Isn't it the truth?

It's about this time that I hear many students say , "I'm bored with my workout and don't have many options". Here is some of what I tell them to beat winter workout boredom:Whether you have a gym membership or a home gym, now is the time to spice up your indoor cardio routine.Make a cardio medley by picking three different cardio machines, or circuits, and workout on each for 10 minutes or so. This is a great alternative to just getting on the same machine for certain length of time.
