Do You Even Read, Bro? 3/23/15

Hey everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend, doing whatever you do.  Mine was pretty relaxing and well needed. I built a clubhouse for son on Saturday and did some spring cleaning with the fair weather.


Spring has arrived here in Pittsburgh, at least that is what the calendar is telling me.  Weather has been better and following my #Bucco’s during spring training is one of my favorite times of the year.  It tells me summer is on the way and listening to baseball on the radio is one of my most relaxing things to do.  Luckily, with my work and clientele schedule, I have afternoons open to listen to games while I do my online training.

Spring time means summer time is right around the corner which means I am getting ready and working hard with my Muscle Construction program to put on some muscle and get lean for the beach in June.  I am pondering on running a program or just unleashing it to the masses all at once.  Decisions, decisions….. .   My son is also getting ready to turn two in April and need to start party planning.  They grow up so fast.

Here are two great posts on one question I get all the time, “How much protein should I be eating?” and one on what I believe supplementation “is”.  Too many people jump right into supplementation without looking at their diet or even know what they are taking!   Hopefully the BCAA’s article shows you that it may be a waste of money based on your goals and diet.  For more info on supplementation, I highly suggest, tons of non-biased information and research, you may learn a thing or two and save yourself some dolla’ bill$.

Whether you suffer from low back pain or not, this is “foundational exercise” (I made that term up just now, so do not google it).  Back pain comes from having a weak core, glutes, and stability.  Do not wait until you screw your back up, start working on preventing it now.  You should have or should be doing this stuff in your training regardless.
