So you are getting back in the game?  For many a "contest" or "challenge" doesn't always work right? The timing isn't right. Something didn't add up. Some of you like the community groups on Facebook. Some of you use these little messages from me as prompts and will reply with a question or comment...

Quick Protein and Amino Acid lesson:
 

There are advantages and disadvantages to both animal and plant proteins.  I like to include both to get the benefits of both, yet not the drawbacks of too many of either. It's all about balance, there is that word again! It belongs everywhere and in all that we...

How much should you lift? It's a great question that I get often. The reason weight lifting routines don't tell you how much to lift is because the right amount is different for each person. It's all sort of relative to conditioning, stress, health, and genetics.

How do you know if you are lifting en...

I just now snapped this picture out on my deck, right this minute. The delivery guy just brought me this package. I will talk about that in a minute. For now I want to talk about protein, because it really is important. Keeping your protein level up is one of the most important success factors with...
