I’m working on a big bunch of videos – starting with bicep training.
Heres a quick intro to the biceps anatomy for exercises like the barbell curl. Sorry I cut off at the end but like I said I’m making a bunch of vids on various exercises.
OK after making that previous video I realized I should have mentioned pronation. This is a way to isolate between the two biceps heads.
Its time to lose that old belly fat. Man its the only place on my body that has a layer of fat – and I can do 1000 ab crunches straight. So much for spot reduction. What does work for me very quickly is long slow low intensity running. But after a week or two I get burned out.
This time I am swopping things around to try and avoid that burnout. I’m doing 20 minutes on the rower then 20 minutes on the … well I forgot the name for this machine but its just like a bicycle but you use your arms and hands not your legs, while standing. Then the rower for another 20 if i feel like it.
So this is upper body aerobics. In between these days I do weights and I will throw some running days in there too when the weather fines up. The problem for us weightlifters is that running gets dull – and like I said you get overtrained.
So I may experiment with some other stuff like hiking outdoors, playing squash and swimming.
I have to lose this belly fat, but I dont want to diet and lose muscle.
Hi folks, as some of you may know I have worked out consistently for twenty three years.
Thats more than half my life as I’m 39. I have trained nearly every week of those 23 years except when I am ill or when I have a deliberate lay off.
In this video I discuss the two simple factors that determine just how long most people last as athletes and fitness enthusiasts. It only a simple video but I hope you get the message.
