CoaHave you ever stood there looking at the equipment in your garage and think, "gosh. I'm not motivated today.

THIS IS MY COMPLETE EXPERIMENT ON HOW I FIXED MY DIASTASIS RECTI
Diastasis Recti. I’ll be honest, until recently I didn’t know much about it, let alone doing anything about it. 135 days ago I decided to start an experiment, and keep a ‘diary’ or journal if you will of everything I’ve done to help fix it that includes exercises, progress photos, and even my personal thoughts and mental state through the process. Other than the exercises stated, I kept up with my normal workout routine. As you read, keep in mind that I wanted to keep this as real as possible, so there will be changes in ‘tense’ of wording (ie. has/had,...
5 EXERCISES TO IMPROVE YOUR PULL-UPS
Pull-ups for the longest time have been my nemesis. Well, basically my entire upper body used to be horribly weak. Over the past year, I’ve used these exercises to improve pull ups for both myself, and my clients. I’m going to keep this super short and sweet, because, let’s face it, there’s nothing super ground breaking about these 5 exercises.

Have you ever seen a video on the internet that is of some poor soul trying to do a workout move? And, their form is so terrible that anybody could tell that, hey, that isn’t the way that should be done? Or they fall off of a machine, and God love them they just try to walk it off like nothing ever happened? When I take on new clients, or I get readers that are looking to buy my programs but are on the fence, it is almost a certainty that they will tell me “hey, don’t make me do something that...
Washing gym clothes
Girl. You would be amazed at how many folks I have had to talk to them about top products for washing gym clothes. I’m not talking about, oh hey, my clothes are having a hard time getting the smell out, what do you use? I’m talking about, girls telling me they don’t wash their gym clothes at all in between sessions. WHAT?! You’re telling me that you just put on the same gym clothes after you sweat in them like that? IF I’M LYING, I’M DYING. I’M TOTALLY SERIOUS. I’ve had to tell them that they need to wash their clothes...
4 BIG REASONS WORKOUT WARM UPS ARE IMPORTANT
I’m going to tell you a story. This is basically a story telling on myself about that time that I about died (not really) during a workout because I didn’t properly warm up. As with any good coach, I know the importance of warm up, but I didn’t “have time” and dove straight into my workout. So, I started on the rower and was going to do rowing intervals. Well, I didn’t do any gentle rowing to get those muscles and joints nice and limber and I just started doing 150M hard and 50M gentle. I thought I was going to fall...
