Swole on Brett Favre and Super Bowl XLIII

A Rat Fink
Brett ‘Rat Fink’ Favre

Public Enemy #1 aka Brett Favre has successfully thwarted the Patriots attempts to make it into the playoffs this year. Thank you Brett for throwing 3 pics and completing only 50% of your passes.

So many little things could have gone differently, and the Patriots would be in the playoffs.

These four events come to mind first:

  • If the coin flip in the overtime game versus the Jets had gone to the Patriots, New England would be in the playoffs.

Training for 11/17 – 12/28

New Years Resolutions

It look like my extreme kickboxing career is over. This workout log is probably the last mention of Barbara and Roger Woo’s kickboxing class. We just can’t manage it while taking care of our kids properly.

I mean, I could probably continue to go but my girlfriend can’t go if she can’t find someone to watch the kid, and when I don’t go she doesn’t go, so it’s not like we can take turns. Therefore I draw the conclusion that I won’t be able to do kickboxing anymore at all, unless I’m training in the cardio room at the corporate fitness center where I work. At least they have a couple bags there that I can beat on.

So now I guess it’s up to me to put together my own kickboxing program and stick with it at least twice a week in order to stay in shape. Fortunately I am putting together a new program that I hope will maximize progress in minimal time. See the bottom of this post for just a wee bit more info.

Nutrition Tip: The 10% Factor of Proper Nutrition

I have been reading exercise and nutrition material written by a gentleman named Dr. John Berardi since the late 1990’s.

Since that time he has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition related conferences; and published countless articles online.

His first articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago, provided me with the basis for everything I know about nutrition today. Now I will turn some of that knowledge over to you in the form of Nutrition Tips written by Dr. Berardi himself.

I Got a Free Trial of Bromalite, An All Natural Digestive Supplement

Sunday, December 21st, 2008
Bromalite Probiotics
Bromalite Probiotics

I have been given a free trial of a supplement called Bromalite. I will start using it on January 2nd 2009, so I don’t have an accurate review quite yet. My plan is to use Bromalite for 30 days and then write a fair, honest, unbiased review, whether negative, positive, or neutral.

Lately I’ve been waking up kinda sick a couple mornings each week, especially after eating a big meal the previous evening. Basically, I have been experiencing gastrointestinal distress. I’ve always had really annoying issues digesting dairy and wheat products, so when I remembered that I got this bottle of Bromalite, I decided that I would try it.

Sandbag Training Video

Monday, December 15th, 2008

I recently discovered sandbag training. Similar to kettlebell training, Cross Fit training, and P90X training; this is a revolutionary form of training that should really be considered for functional workouts.

Now, you might laugh at me for calling any of those training methodologies ‘revolutionary’, but they are all training styles that fall outside of strict free weight training, cardio training, powerlifting, or any such well-defined training methodology fad. Of course, all of these idea have led to eye-opening, insightful ideas about training and conditioning.

So, let me introduce sandbag training. Allow me to entice you with this one video, and later I will write more about this methodology with some links to get sandbag training equipment. Anyway, check this out:

13 Ways to Get in Shape While Accomplishing Something Useful

Mowing the Lawn

After initially proofreading this post I was thinking to myself that I wouldn’t post it because it’s not a training article, and quite frankly some of the activities are pretty foo-foo. But on second thought, some of these ideas apply more to men, while others apply more to women, so there is something in this list for everyone.

I recommend referring to this list on your next boring spring, summer, or autumn weekend. When you are looking for something to do around the house or around the yard, these ideas might inspire you to create, clean, fix, or just burn extra calories.

After all being swole doesn’t always have to be about squatting, benching, power cleaning (the Olympic lift), or sprinting. Being swole is much more about the path we take to get there, than the end result. Although when you look great naked, the end result is pretty sweet.
