It’s important to select an exercise that is “right” for you. Often, New Year’s resolutions are broken due to poor activity choices.

This is the guy who discovered Charles Atlas and helped invent bodybuilding, but he also was an early pioneer of alternative medicine publishing “Physical Culture” an early health magazine.

It’s ironic, isn’t it, that the most wonderful time of the year to exercise outdoors is also the time the air is most filled with pollen and other allergy triggers? Our weather in Texas has been warm, cool, cold, wet, warm and very windy—and all in the course of one... Continue reading

You’ve got to love plyometrics. The exercises are simple, you just use your bodyweight in most cases, and you can perform them anywhere. They’re explosive movements and can be very high-intensity. Please don’t attempt plyometrics if you are injured, healing from an injury or are overtrained. Plyometrics can be very... Continue reading

According to the August 4 issue of Time magazine, the latest study to confirm... Continue reading
