Hello friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Unfortunately, I am going through some family events at the moment, so I can’t say it’s wonderful (which is the reason for a late posting). I will however say I am grateful to have this place to come to and disconnect. I am also grateful for […]

Two is better than one. Sure, there are times when you want to be all by your lonesome but for the most part, humans, by nature, are social creatures. When it comes to working out it’s the same. Studies show that working out with a partner is more beneficial because it not only holds you […]

“Deep breath. You’re almost done! Force a long, slow breath. There is no reason to stop, if you do, you know you will wish that you hadn’t. It’s harder to get going again if you stop. Just push to the end.” That’s the conversation that goes on in my head when I am working out. […]

I’ve done 3000 squats! 30 days ago Dan asked me if I would join him for a squat challenge. We would do 100 squats every day for the next 30 days. It started out so great that I invited you all to join in with me, so now you’re just 4 days to completing your […]

Have you ever stopped and watched others while they were doing their workout? Or listened in to trainers working with their clients? Okay, so I don’t encourage this sort of behavior… you really should be focused in on your own kick ass workout but sometimes you just can’t help but stop dead in your tracks […]

You know those stories you hear of grandfathers living to be 95 years old after a life filled with booze, cigs, and fried food? Well, that’s Santa Clause (except instead of booze and cigarettes, it’s cookies and milk). How the man has managed to live centuries while keeping up with his lifestyle is beyond me. […]

*Note: I know that yesterday I did a post on Damaging Admissions of Trainers, so today’s title might sound repetitive however it’s not. This is a part of my monthly “Confessions of A Trainer” series which I hope you enjoy! I do recommend check out yesterdays post too!  Can you believe that as of yesterday […]

Yes, it’s getting cold outside. Yes, the days are getting shorter and the nights longer. Yes, extra layers of clothes are required. But… it’s good for you to deal with the cold. Did you know that being outside: Can make you be happier. Natural light elevates people’s moods, helping to increase serotonin levels! If you […]

You might grow tired of me saying it, but if you want a workout that delivers noticeable results you have to take action. Doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting different results will over and over again yield NOTHING. And you want SOMETHING, right? There are important factors to consider… factors that […]

Hello friend, I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday! We have had the best weekend with our friends/boot campers. Unfortunately today, I woke up with a sore throat so I’ll be taking it easy. I guess I just had a little too much fun! Tomorrow I’ll have a normal post (it’s actually a great Pumpkin […]

If you’ve been reading Lifting Revolution for any length of time, perhaps you’ve noticed I love creating “Top Ten” posts? They’re something I started over a year ago, and unlike many things I’ve started in the past, I’ve actually kept them going strong. They also happen to be some of the most popular posts here, […]

This past Sunday was the season premier of The Walking Dead. Are you a fan? Image source Dan and I love zombie shows and movies, but sadly we have to wait for the full season to be added to NetFlix since we don’t have a television. But regardless of our technological issues, the show started […]

I think that embarrassing moments are meant to happen for 2 reasons: ONE: To remind us that we’re not perfect. TWO: To remind us not to take life so seriously. Embarrassing for you means laughter for others, and laughter for you in the future. Aside from laughing at other’s blunders, something else that’s funny is […]

Last week, Dan shared “One of the Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History” with me. I definitely recommend reading it. I knew there was no way I could just look it over and move on. That was a real ad from the 60s!  I don’t know about you, but I don’t think of the 60s […]
