Get Country Strong:
Cinder Block Workout
cinder block

Don’t have the equipment to workout? Bologna. All you need is an ordinary cinder block. Workouts can be tailored to your level of fitness, too.

I live on a nice chunk of land in the country and love to switch up my workouts, take them outside, and make use of what’s available. I do have access to equipment and a gym, but there’s something to be said for just roughing it, and getting down in the dirt.

Weight Loss Goals?
Keep 'Em to Yourself

If you’re one of the millions of people whose top new years resolutions consist of some form of weight loss goal, you might just want to zip your lip about it. Professionals in every field maintain that when we tell others about our goals, it could zap our willpower and hurt us in the long run.

Derek Sivers, a super nice millionaire entrepreneur and author of Anything You Want, explains in his short TED talk that when we tell others our goals, (like those all-important weight loss goals), it tricks our brains into believing that the act is already done, therefore minimizing our motivation.

Using Negativity as a Catalyst for Change
Motivation for Weight Loss
CC Liscense, Alasis

Negativity oftentimes slaps us smack in the face, especially when we’re at our lowest point.  Using negativity in reverse fashion can help you turn it into a powerful catalyst for change, and help fuel your motivation for weight loss.

Negativity is irrespective of persons.  From corporate downsizing to stubbed toes, crap happens.  Let’s say you’re feeling kind of schlumpy.  Then, bam!  A friend remarks that you’ve put on a few pounds.  It happens to best of us.

How to Design Your Own Simple Workout
Easy Workout Ideas
vegan bodybuilder

I hear from people all the time that they don't have time to workout, much less design their own simple workout program.  We all know that achieving our goals really is a matter of prioritizing. 

If you aren't exercising regularly, you simply aren't putting fitness high enough on your list of priorities. It happens to all of us.  The best thing to do if you find your exercise commitment slipping is to recognize the problem (which you are obviously doing now) and then renew your commitment by reminding yourself of why you wanted to get fit in the first place.

Fruit Diet
Get Fit on Fruit
vegan bodybuilder

Eat fruit and get fit? Sounds like a joke, right? Nope. There’s just too many benefits from fruit to ignore or exclude them from your diet.

People on a mission to lose weight will try almost anything. They can get pretty desperate.

If you scan the pages of any fitness or bodybuilding magazine, you’ll see a lot of sample diets from prominent fitness folks. They’re usually pretty cut and dry chicken, broccoli, and occasional brown rice diets. Blah. Blah. Blah.

You'll hardly ever see bodybuilders wolfin’ down fruit smoothies.

Can You Really Boost Your Metabolism?Boost Metabolism
Facts, Excuses, and a Plan

I hear comments all the time like, “How do I raise my metabolism,” or “I guess I just have a slow metabolism,” and the ever popular, “Can I boost my metabolism?”

Right off the bat, I need to let you know that claiming to be a victim of a slow metabolism is no excuse for being overweight. I mean, if you’re scarfing down Arby’s and then say you have a round midsection because you have a sluggish metabolism, you not foolin’ anybody. Take an honest look at your habits and stop hiding them behind a feigned effort.

Jamin Thompson On MotivationJamin Thompson
No Whining. No Excuses.

Jamin Thompson, "Jrock," is quite an inspirational man. He's a fat loss expert, model, motivational speaker, and author of the e-book "The Six Pack Secret." Check out his article below.

My opinion is that, until people have committed enough in their preparation, they won't care enough when they fail. Many of us do not put forth enough effort, take enough risks, or aim as high as we can for fear of failure and the unknown. Life is full of “what ifs” and your mind will create many demons. Everyone has a breaking point where the gain or possible good outcome does not seem worth the pain.

Total Body Workout
Hardcore Workout at Home

PushupsHopefully, we've evolved enough in fitness culture, to understand that a gym membership is not mandatory to a fit body. It is, in fact, just a preference.

In case you are one of the the gym rats who believe that unless you're pumping iron at the gym, you're not really working out, consider this: You're wrong. Every muscle of the body can be worked out with either bodyweight, or very simple equipment. In terms of real benefits, functional training is leagues ahead traditional (dare I say out-dated?) training.

Swang to Twang
Country Top Ten Workout Songs
cowboy boots

A Country Top Ten list is probably one of the least sought after genres. But, everyone should give it a try. Although a lot of country lyrics leave much to be desired, the songs still have a lot to offer:

•They are upbeat.

•They stay with the same beat throughout, which can be helping when counting reps or doing cardio.

•Many country songs are actually just stories put to music. Even though they're tacky, you end up listening to to see how it ends. This can be an advantage because it can make time go by faster if your workout feels like it's dragging on.

Hunger is an unfortunate, but necessary, part of any weight loss endeavor. Sorry to burst your bubble, if you were thinking you could achieve an awesome body without suffering a bit.

When your body is burning away fat, you are basically cannibalizing yourself. Can you say, "Ouch?!" All those pleasurable moments you've spent horking down cookies and pizza... Did you think you wouldn't have to pay for that?

Addicted to Food?
Stop Emotional Eating
Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is a sure ticket to unhappiness and fatness. Sorry if that sounds insensitive, but it's true. I've struggled with food addiction long before I knew there was such a thing. If you've ever thought (or acted) like food was your friend, you might want to examine your habits.

Emotional eating, food addiction, and sugar addiction are common problems. So common, in fact, they seem "normal." De-stressing by wolfing down some chips or McDonalds, eating tons of sweets during down times, and believing in the pseudo-power of the chocolate/love relationship is NOT NORMAL. There is another way!

F%#@! Cardio
Learning to Love Cardio Workouts
Cardio Workouts

Loving cardio workouts? Does that sound like a joke? Do you know why most people never attain high fitness levels, or lose it once they've managed to get there? They don't love the process, the lifestyle. They just do the cardio to get it over with, viewing it as necessary evil. They eek by with as little as possible and dread it.

So, here's a question for you: Can you keep doing something you despise for the rest of your life? Would you even want to? I know I wouldn't.

Workout Songs PlaylistWorkout Playlists
Mix of Genres from Akon to Alice in Chains

Nothing's better than a new set of workout songs to get motivated for the next workout. Whenever I find juuuuust the right song that's got the exact beat my body needs at the moment, it puts me into an incredible state of flow. A great high... Much more so than any chocolate chip cookie or glass of wine can offer me.

Keep in mind that many of the workout songs I find, you may not have heard of, or maybe are totally out of your comfort zone. If your fave is Metallica and I suggest Will Smith, don't freak out. Just give it a try, even if getting a laugh is your main motivator. It works, really.
