Atlas Wristband2 review: fitness tracker for kettlebell swings

Consider your own fat mass in your kettlebell workouts

Consider your own fat mass in your kettlebell workouts

I am around 300 pounds (136kg) and my fat mass is around 33%-40%. 300lbs*.33=99lbs (45kg) and 300lbs*.40=120lbs (54.5kg). It's really important for all of us plus-sized (ahem, obese), big and tall, boys and girls to consider how much extra weight we have on our bones when we take up kettlebell training.

Christening my new pair of Nike Pegasus running shoes

Christening my new pair of Nike Pegasus running shoes

I know I should be running instead of writing about running but I was reinstalling run-tracking apps onto my Samsung Galaxy S8 Active and wanted to start with a fresh pair of running shoes since you can plug your runners into a couple of the apps and then when you track a run the apps will also track the mileage that you put onto your shoes.

How heavy your kettlebell should be (heavier than you think)

How heavy your kettlebell should be (heavier than you think)

According to Supreme Girya Master Girevik Pavel Tsatsouline, if you're a man, you really should be swinging at least a 16kg kettlebell and ordering up a 24kg kettlebell and a 32kg kettlebell from Kettlebells USA for not later but for sooner--for soon!

Maybe you should be swinging a much heavier kettlebell

Maybe you should be swinging a much heavier kettlebell

The kettlebells I have been swinging every day have been too light from the beginning. I have been cycling between a 12kg, a 16kg, and a 20kg competition kettlebell but really should have been putting the work in and struggled with my 24kg kettlebell instead. Maybe you're swinging a kettlebell that's too light for you.

Sometimes it takes 18-months to motivate enough to commit and get started—and that's okay!

I have had this timer set up to prompt me to do 90-seconds of kettlebell swings every single hour of the day. I've been ignoring it for over 18-months but started doing it again today.

JLRacing ErgTrou are the ultimate trou

JLRacing ErgTrou are the ultimate trou

At first, I thought that the polypro unisex ErgTrou by JLRacing was a gimmick. All I could see that was any different at first blush was that gimmicky alternative logo of a stick figure little unisex person on a Concept2 indoor rower and a slit pocket at the small of the back in which you can stow your smartphone or MP3 player while you're doing all the meters on your erg.

My buddy Mark Harrison never recommends recipes for me. However, he's become obsessed with this recipe to the point of really pressing it on me because he knows how much I love strong flavors, olive oil, garlic, and even anchovies!

Remove regrettable online tattoos with reputation management

Remove regrettable online tattoos with reputation management

The way you feel now about all those photos of you at the beach, in your suit, body-proud, tanned and drinking — liberation and joy — may end up making you feel completely different in your near future — trapped and ashamed. No matter how young you may be, reading these words, you need to start thinking long-game when it comes to your online reputation.

You Can’t Ignore the Power That Search Holds for Your Business

You Can’t Ignore the Power That Search Holds for Your Business

If you’re a serious business person whose business isn’t digital, you’re probably too busy making money to fool around on social media. Social media’s stupid, right? Just baby pictures, workout check-ins, adorable kittens and the self-indulgent ramblings of under-employed folks too far to either the left or the right to amount to much.

Online reputation management (ORM): don’t forget Google when you’re in crisis mode

Online reputation management (ORM): don’t forget Google when you’re in crisis mode

When the shit hits the fan and you, your client, your company, or your brand ends up in the entirely wrong sort of spotlight and you don’t fully subscribe to the axiom “I don’t care what the newspapers say about me as long as they spell my name right” then you’re going to need to focus on two things right away. In this order: first, of course, address the media about the issue in real life; second, preemptively and proactively prepare yourself for catastrophically-negative search results that will outlive and haunt you well past your devestating time in the limelight.

My One Burrito a Day (OBAD) One Meal a Day (OMAD) Diet

My One Burrito a Day (OBAD) One Meal a Day (OMAD) Diet

For a couple weeks now, I have been following the one meal a day—OMAD—diet. I am trying it out because after reading about and trying the keto diet, which is very prescriptive, I wanted something easy that amalgamates intermittent fasting, one very satisfying meal that fulfills all the calories I need for a day that actually satiates me, and no food to cheat with in my fridge, cupboard, or larder.

Trying one meal a day—OMAD

If you go down the Keto diet rabbit hole, you'll end up reading about IF—intermittant fasting; and, if you spend enough time on reddit, you'll eventually discover the OMAD subreddit: One Meal A Day. It's simple: eat like a king once-a-day, somewhere between 4pm and 8pm, but only for an hour. Then, stop eating for the next 23-hours.

Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better is a book about slow rowing for a better life for life

According to D.P. Ordway, our not doing anything physical is as much of a shock to our physiological and neurological systems as is running, cycling, and doing CrossFit; however, it's the wrong sort of shock. D.P. believes that we all should have a baseline of activity every single day and that should be at least 45-minutes every single day on a Concept2 Indoor Rower. I thought that was my idea but it's not!

Added "take the stairs" to my resolutions

Added "take the stairs" to my resolutions

The worst workout when I was a college rower at GWU was running the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown off of Water Street. We flowed up and down, first thing in the morning, as a team, with folks powering up and streaming back down. It was a terrestrial vomit comet, worse than suicides, burpees, and wind sprints combined.
