Top Ten Thursday

For the past 3 years I have dabbled in yoga. Going to a class here or there, doing a dvd workout of Rodney Yee with Dan when we thought about it. But for the most part, I didn’t see it as a necessity to my training. At that time, yoga to me was a workout […]

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 […]

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 […]

Can you handle the truth? Are you ready for what really goes on in the head of a crazy personal trainer? A while ago, I made a few trainer confessions, if you missed them, you can read them here. And today I think it’s time to confess once again. These moments are incredibly important because […]

Almost 2 months ago Dan put forth a challenge (clearly he loves challenges), and asked if we could try going wheat free for a month. We’ve had several friends adopt a wheat free diet that swore up and down that it changed their lives for the better. So, after doing so research and food planning, […]

It’s been forever since I’ve put together a “Variations” post! I couldn’t put it off any longer. And I had just the idea… LUNGES! There are so many unique ways to perform a lunge that often get over looked. Lunges are great for working the thighs, butt and even abs! But let’s face it, doing […]

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, […]

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 […]

Doesn’t that headline just irk you? I certainly does me. I was born in a lucky generation… where girls and boys were treated some what equal. My mom used to tell me all the time, you can do whatever your brother does. Just as well. Oh yea? Then why can my smoking, 33 year old […]

I don’t know what made me think about it, but it occurred to me that I’m not the only one that reaps the benefits of my workouts. Without fitness in my life, who knows if my neurotic personality would allow me to have any friends… or a spouse for that matter. The sanity gained from […]

Some of these may shock you, some may even have you asking… “Did she really just say that was overrated?” Yes, I certainly did. As promised, this is the follow up to Tuesday’s Most Underrated Exercise post. If you missed it, check it out! As for today, these are moves that I see repeatidily glorified, […]

Hi friends! Have you wondered if what you’re doing is right? Is your workout a good workout? Is it what you need? In the 80′s fitness choices were limited: weight lifting, running, and step aerobics. Now, there seems to be an infinite amount of choices to pick from for workout programs. I would name some […]

First, I want to thank everyone for all the amazing comments yesterday. That post was very heart felt and I loved the positive reactions from you all. It truly made my day and put a smile on my face from ear to ear. Now, let’s get our sweat on. Big time. My Job: To Create […]
