Music Mondays: Darius – Hot Hands

It’s March! (Doesn’t bloody well feel like it out there, but it is!) So, let’s steam our way through this month until spring. Since we all need a little energy boost and revitalization in the gym, and I am a self-confessed music junkie, I’ve decided to bring back “Music Mondays” and to feature an amazing workout song to add to your playlists every Monday for the next little while. The songs will be super hot, super motivating and will help to keep you pumping on those days when your energy might otherwise be lacking. A great start to the week! Today’s track is Hot Hands by Darius. Follow the link here, and you can buy it on...

Unfortunately, the absence of my cooking...

Maybe it’s a lingering elementary school mentality, but you don’t want to get embarrassed by a girl! I can safely say, however, that I had nothing to worry about. Jess came in and was immediately a calming presence – very laid back and professional. We briefly discussed the action plan and then got right to it. Jess’ program for me is focused on functional training – so we did a lot of body weight exercises: reverse-crunches, push-ups with side planks, lunges with rows...
