Saturday - Later that Day!

Hey guys... I'm starting to get some of my fitness pics back now. Here's a really nice one, showcasing my abs.

Interestingly enough I got this back from my photog friend the same day I finally figured out how to post a link to something I wanted to recommend. If you look on my sidebar you'll notice a new link, to Mike Geary, who I've mentioned now at least on two separate occasions. I didn't start this vlog just to sell crap to you guys. But I'll be honest with you, if I have used a product or service or read an eBook I TRULY believe in, I'm going to link to it for you. I'd like to keep the integrity of my vlog pure and clean... and honest. I do this cuz I like doing it. I do this cuz I like sharing with you guys, I find you inspirational and I find inspiration from you guys finding ME inspirational! And if my vlogs help you guys, then I'm doing something right. Its all about "giving" in life, isn't it? Helping others on your road to being the best person you can be? and leaving a footprint that mattered after you're gone? That, kids, is MY dream. To have made a difference to even one soul on this planet, but to as many as reasonably possible!

Anyway, I have read "Truth About Abs" ... it was my first stop on my journey and I'll be forever grateful I found it. I really believe in Mike Geary for his theories and ideas about fat, food & compound exercises.

So, keep the faith if you see a link or two. I'm going to do my absolute best to keep my links relevant and only post things I TRULY believe in, have used myself, know what they're all about and can honestly tell you I recommend it... and, I recommend Truth About Abs... I mean LOOK at my abs! Even *I* can't believe how awesome this picture is!! I'm feeling pretty proud right this minute. :-)

Saturday - The Two Day Effect

Hey Guys. I'm having a hard day today, and talk about something I will always from this day forward call "The Two Day Effect"... enjoy.

Pre-Party mind-spurt - Motivation again

Hey Kids!! Ok, I'm on my way out for the evening, and had a thought to share about motivation. Here it is, I'll let it speak for itself!

Thursday Post-Workout Motivation

I'm doin' stairwells today, and here's the resulting brain-spurt!! :-) I'd like to preface this with the correction that when I was talking about stairwells being good "HIIT" I probably should have said they're good "Intervals"... one of the "I's" in HIIT means Intensity, and no one can have intensity going on if they're reading a book. Okay?? Okay!!

Let's Motivate!!

Welcome to Wednesday! I answer the question of how I got to the mindset I'm at now, how I motivate to workout every day, and eat right.

Also, for the person that asked me what I think about the P090X, I'm sorry, I don't have any knowledge about that program. I prefer to write my own programs. But I have heard it will kick your BUTT! and that you need access to a pull-up bar to get the full benefit from it. I am intrigued by it, might even try it someday, but I'm pretty good at kicking my own butt so for now will be sticking with my own programs.

Yesterday we ran, Today We WALK!

Hey Everyone, I'm taking you on a tour of where I do most of my cardio today. Luckily I figured out how to string a bunch of little videos together no problem so its all in one video (phew), but this video is a bit longer than the others.

I'm also trying a different format with video upload today. Let me know if you like it or hate it. If its no good, I'll go back to

Part 1 (the seawall adventure):

whoops! forgot to add my map of Stanley Park! here it is... I usually walk all along the path that's along the lefthand side of this map:

Part 2 (the grateful appreciation):

We're off 'n running now!

Hey everyone... here's a quick tour thru the space I work out in (also known as my home!). I made a small mistake in one area, so when I start talking about doing 'chest presses' on a chair, I actually meant 'shoulder presses' ok? :-)

I also wanted to point out when I'm talking about super circuits using all compound moves and my doubt that they can keep muscles defined, what I mean really is that you pretty much have to use lighter weights when doing compound moves and isolation moves lend themselves more to lifting heavier weights and adding muscle and definition to the muscle you are isolating.

enjoy... !!!

Oh, and please comment and let me know how I did, I'm still learning and hoping to learn from you all! I'm a sponge for constructive criticism so feel free to let me have it if you see areas I can improve/change up!!
