Maximize Your Workouts While Minimizing Time at... →
Here’s my latest post for Fit Campus on how to be efficient at the gym. These are just tips I’ve learned over the past year that are good to implement when you are under a time crunch or just want to get in, workout, and get out :) As college students with hectic class schedules, work schedules, and social lives, sometimes it’s hard to fit in time for a workout. However, there...
jacob-boly replied to your video: Front Squat PR! - 155lbs Awesome lifting session… Make sure you’re driving through your heels to avoid that falling forward feeling. Thanks for the tip! I’m usually pretty good about that but I guess I didn’t quite adjust to the weight or I’ve been slacking off haha. That’s why I love tumblr! You guys help me out :)
bewareofthescaryroom replied to your post: and Zombies! Where did you find the app? I can’t seem to find it anywhere.. I paid for it ahead of time, like a couple weeks ago. I think it’s only available for those who paid for it ahead of time but on the website it says it will be available for everyone on February 27.
AND I also started using the Run Zombie app for iPhone and it is awesome!!! The situation: You’re part of a surviving group of humans that live in an apocolyptic era and you have to make trips out to hunt for supplies (medical, food, clothing, batteries, etc.) but there are zombies running around as well. Once you get back home, you assign the supplies you collected to certain parts of...

You’ve probably noticed all the hype around omega-3’s lately. but is this just another dietary trend, or is it actually worth looking into? Read the rest of this post and hopefully, you’ll have a better idea. (Spoiler alert: Omega 3’s are the Chuck Norris of supplements). What are Omega 3’s? There are three types of omega 3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA, which are found in fish, and ALA which is...

nopityfitness: Y’all gotta go extra BAMF today. Why? JUST BECAUSE! Im on day 5 of my “Squat Erry Day” plan, which I may just rename the “Ginger Method” haha. Box squats in the morning, and I’ll probably hit front squats for my PM workout. So that will be 6 squat sessions in 5 days. Best. Week. Ever. ALSO: Squat lovers, join the Squat Squad!!
newidentity-athlete replied to your post: newidentity-athlete replied to your post: Personal… And what a great opportunity for her to get free training! Yeah, she enjoys being my guinea pig :)
newidentity-athlete replied to your post: Personal Training Experience This is awesome! I’m so intrigued to hear more!! Thanks! I will post updates as she progresses. We’ve only done 2 sessions so far but I she has been able to increase the amount of weight she is lifting already so that’s a good sign. :)
Personal Training Experience
So one thing I am definitely interested in doing is being a personal trainer. I’m taking this course right now that prepares one for the NASM exam and I really enjoy it. My teacher is awesome and for extra credit we can train a friend 2x a week for 6 weeks. I am training my roommate right now. She really likes doing cardio on a treadmill, elliptical, or stair stepper machine and...
newidentity-athlete replied to your post: Today Congrats! That has to feel great! Yeah it feels awesome! I can’t wait to start doing deadlifts, benchpress, OH press, pullups, etc again :) That time might come sooner than I originally thought too!
Today was a good day! I felt comfortable enough to workout without wearing a wrist brace and it was fine! I did dumbbell bench press with 35lbs in my left hand and 10lbs for my right hand so my wrist can ease back into bearing weight. I also did some 12lb shoulder presses with just my right arm and that felt pretty good too. Also did some farmer’s walks to get forearm strength back in...

I thought lots of you tumblr peeps would like this :) This page has lots of great ideas for what to do with old race merch like medals, t-shirts, and race bibs. Some ideas: quilts, coasters, magnets, wallpaper, race bags, and scrap books. I think a quilt would be awesome!

femme-enforme answered your question: Online Automatic Diet Planner It’s a good place to start if you’re out of ideas or don’t know what you *should* be eating. Exactly what I was thinking. I can’t really see myself using it but for someone who’s new to keeping some sort of food log it could be useful.
Online Automatic Diet Planner →
I just discovered this site through one of Campbell Fitness’s youtube videos but it seems really interesting Basically you enter how many calories you want to eat per day and how many meals and it comes up with a food plan for you. You can customize it even further by specifying exact macro-nutrient percentages, specific foods you want or don’t want included, whether you want a...

New book review! I just finished reading the book “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?

I got my cast off yesterday! I feel so vulnerable now though haha. My wrist is super sore and tender. My job right now is to practice flexion, extension, and pronation at least 4 times per day to work on getting mobility back. It’s weird to have to struggle to move my wrist a couple of degrees when it could move so freely before. In a week or two I will start taxing it a little bit with...

What Makes Your Muscles Sore? →
This is my first blog post for Fit Campus! Tell me what you think! I’m sure everyone knows the painful feeling of muscle soreness that appears a day or two after hard exercise, also known as delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). The symptoms include strength loss, pain, muscle tenderness, swelling, and stiffness, but do you know what actually causes DOMS? In previous years, it was thought...

Fitocracy on Her Campus →
I write for an online magazine called Her Campus that has branches in dozens of universities all over the U.S. including my school, UNC. I wrote about Fitocracy in my most recent article because I figure most college women have never even heard of it and I think they would use it. Fitocracy has grown so much and gets more awesome every day!
thereluctantrunner replied to your link: 10 Reasons Runners Should Include Weight Training Ok…but what lifting to do? Since runners are usually on one leg at a time while running, I would incorporate some 1-leg lifts such as split squats, lunges, and 1-leg deadlifts but bilateral lifts are also helpful. Plyometrics would also be good to incorporate to improve power production in the legs. I...
10 Reasons Runners Should Include Weight Training →
Yes, this is a great article for runners and other endurance athletes! tridad: Forever-Athlete tweeted this but I thought I’d “reblog” it here. If you are considering long course running, I’d suggest you add strength training to your plan. Btw, forever-athlete tweets TONS of good links every day. You should follow her on twitter; it’s like having a research assistant!
iamanthonyhouse replied to your post: 2012 Goals Power cleans for vertical jump Yes! I do those, (well before I broke my wrist), but Snatches and Cleans are definitely on my to-do list for increasing my power. Those are the lifts I miss most right now
jav0n replied to your post: 2012 Goals wait…. deadlift 300lbs?!!??! Back squat 275?!?!?!?! BEASTTTT hell yeah! I’ve improved so much since when I started lifting heavy last spring so I think it’s not crazy to shoot for these numbers :) My legs are definitely my strongest asset
warrior-fitness replied to your post: 2012 Goals wow, those are some awesome numbers to shoot for! Go kill it! So, what training cert are you looking to get? Thanks! I’m not 100% sure if some of my goals are actually feasible but I guess we’ll see. :) I’m looking into NASM for the basic CPT. I may add little specialty certs once I narrow my focus a bit.
So I know it’s past New Years Resolutions time but it’s never too late to make a to do list/list of goals so here’s mine. I’ve tried to pick challenging yet attainable goals for myself.
