A ripped physique is the ultimate look. Have you ever watched the Rocky movies? Take a look at Stallone in the 1st movie and then in the sequels. Unreal? The thing is he only gained about 6 or 7 pounds but the difference in his body is unbelievable. I was a big Bruce Lee fan. There was a little guy with an amazing ripped physique. What I’m trying to point out is you don’t have to get huge and bulky to get that ripped look. And it’s not for everyone because you aren’t going to be putting on a belt … Continue reading
Abdominal exercises, or stomach exercises, are a heavily searched for term. I mean who do you know who would not like tight abs? I found this video from Perfect Pullup. I own this and love it, but the ab straps seem to hurt my shoulder for some reason. Generally I follow this principle but I pull myself up until my chin is about even with the bar and then perform these. That’s a tough way to go but works the arms and shoulders as well. I think this is one of the best abdominal exercises you can do.

If you run for the aerobic part of your exercise program, mixing it up keeps it interesting and can be extremely effective. Right now I run 3 days a week. Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. I’ll maintain that schedule until March, when I’ll add an extra day in to get ready for road races. I’m sure you’ve heard of HIIT, high intensity interval training. I do this on my weekday runs. They last an hour so it’s longer than most hiit programs tell you to do, but I have my own variation. The track I run on is 1.3 miles long … Continue reading
Yes I do go on about abs a number of times in my posts and articles. But think about it. If you see a guy who is thin, just skinny, you don’t think much of it. But if that thin guy has washboard abs, doesn’t he look fit and maybe even on the muscular side? Not to mention a tight midsection gives better support to your body. A strong core should be the goal of everyone. Read what Vince has to say . . . One big misconception some people have as far as getting a washboard stomach goes is … Continue reading
Tightening the ab muscles is a must. It’s just so hard to get down and do crunches leg raises; not so much hard as boring. But if you want total fitness and want to look good, you better be thinking abs. I like to try to hit them about 5 times a week. One exercise I came across can be done at anytime and anywhere. Your gut is going to feel it. For lack of a better name, let’s call it retching like a cat. Still here? 🙂 Trust me on this one. Your abs will feel it. Kind of … Continue reading
I always get a lot of questions about losing weight. Some want to know my views on dieting or eating healthy and just on how to lose weight. So I decided to start a new website devoted to weight loss. TudeDiet.com will be devoted to that area. Obviously exercise needs to be included into any weight loss talk so this gives me a chance to keep the two separate. It’s in the early stages so give it time to develop, but I’m looking forward to the new challenge. Especially with the New Year approaching and the new year’s resolutions to … Continue reading
