Incredible Jump -- you can't miss this
2011-05-07 ( lbs.)

A personal friend of mine, John Heifner, is a professional bodybuilder. He owns Workout Anytime in Powell.

A couple of weeks ago, he was working on some crazy vertical jumps and one of the guys in the gym recorded his last one. You gotta see this!

2011-03-07 ( lbs.)

How would you like to get fitness tips and suggestions from Kim Lyons nearly every day? She has great tips and ideas for easy exercise that you can do anywhere, anytime and they fit into everyday life. They are on her video blog at Fast Track where I'm a member.

I sent her a message on Fast Track and asked if I could feature her exercise videos here on my site. She said sure!



Here's what Kim had to say:

You always want to be warm when you stretch.

Think of taffy. If you put taffy in the refrigerator and try and pull it, it will snap because it’s cold. Warming it up a little makes it flexible. Your muscles are no different!...

Today I’m in my kitchen making chicken soup for my sister. We all spend time in the kitchen cooking, so I thought I’d share my favorite “soup simmering, boiling water, waiting for the microwave” exercises that ad...

Fried Oatmeal
2011-02-07 ( lbs.)

I tried a different kind of breakfast this morning. Make oatmeal from 1/2 cup dry oats. Stir in 1 chopped green apple. Put them in a skillet with olive oil and let them cook for 15 min or so, stirring occasionally to keep them from boiling. Mix 2 eggs and 4 egg whites in a bowl. Add the eggs and mix in skillet, stirring until the eggs are cooked.

Calories:
Eggs: 2 x 80 = 160
Egg Whites: 4 x 17 = 68
1/2 c. Oatmeal = 150
1 green apple = 36
Total Calories: 414

It's filling, delicious and easy to fix!


Xbox Kinect -- Fun Exercise!
2011-01-06 ( lbs.)

You know how the Wii made video games active because you move around a lot? I tried the Wii Fit program for a couple of weeks at a friend's house. I liked the things it did, but it was a bit boring. I also tried the Jilian Michaels workout game, but it wasn't much fun. I figured that video game physical training was not quite there yet.

Ok, so this post is going to sound like an advertisements of sorts, but it's actually a review. How would you like to burn calories and have fun at the same time?

With my current work deadlines and schedule, it's been hard to find time to exercise lately. I need something that I can get up from my desk and do and then get straight back to work. With that in mind, I got a Kinect to go with my Xbox 360. I chose my games specifically to keep me active.
