Fitness Facts You Should Read 5/30/12

Here are this week’s picks for “Fitness Facts You Should Read.” Also please note, Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes comes out June 19th. The first one was quite epic as far as Lego games go, so you should definitely pick this one up. C’mon, Batman and the rest of the A-List Justice League as playable Lego characters. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!! Rest assured it will be purchased for my new Nintendo 3DS the day it hits.

I’m also still loving my Nokia Lumia 900. If you haven’t played with one, WHY NOT??? Great alternative to the home screen grid layout with a killer design and pretty sweet OS.


Interesting Factoid: 

My 10-year wedding anniversary is Friday. Not too bad for a guy who married a woman who couldn’t stand him when they met. 


Note to selves for all the single guys who read this blog: never, ever, say “your sister was the hot cheerleader all my friends had a crush on in high school?????” when you first meet someone. 


It may get you kicked to the curb way before you even think about making it to the alter. I should also mention there were two other roosters in the house that Jill was dating at the time we met, and, well,  we all know how things turned out don’t we? VEEK-TOR-AH!

Alright people, read these articles, gain fitness enlightenment…..

Bridge Rollouts for the Glutes

By Ben Bruno

Last week I introduced several advanced leg curl variations to challenge the glutes and hamstrings using Valslides and/or a stability ball. All of the feedback I’ve received thus far about these exercises has been positive, so I wanted to show you a few more that are similar yet slightly different.

Like the exercises in the previous butt, they don’t require a lot of fancy equipment, making them great options when you’re at home or traveling and don’t have access to a gym. Click here for more.


Tips to Stick to Your Nutrition Plan While Traveling

By Molly Galbraith 


One question I get asked constantly regarding nutrition is how to stay “on plan” while traveling.  While it can definitely be harder to stay on track with your nutrition while you are away from home…have no fear, it can be done!  It just requires a little extra planning and preparation.  In fact, I spent 3 days on the road and in a hotel last week and had absolutely no issues following my plan.
