I know what you’re thinking. How did this guy
bang away at a keyboard and somehow manage to put up a website?
Well, the truth is, I do like to lift things up and put them down. But beyond that, I’m just a normal(somewhat) guy that really enjoys fitness. I’ve been involved with fitness in some form or another ever since my parents made my brother and I skip Saturday morning cartoons to go do karate at some smelly, old dojo in Aston, PA. After realizing that I read a shit ton of fitness books and magazines for fun and enjoyment, I decided to change careers so that I could both educate and help people reach their goals.
Plus wearing sneakers and shorts to work ain’t bad either.
Anyways, enough about me. You can read all about my previous exciting life as an accountant on the “about me” page. What I’m here to tell you right now is you need to go lift big(hey that’s the website name!), heavy weights 2-3 times a week. Unless, of course, you don’t fall into one of the categories below:
1. Human Being
All settled? Any dogs or robots out there I’d love to meet you!
Now why do you need to strength train no matter your goals? Because everything comes from strength. Want to burn more fat? You need bigger/stronger muscles to speed up your metabolism. You want to run faster? You need to generate more power and use less energy with each step you take. You want better balance? You need to train your muscles to work together. Heck, even something as simple as playing with your kids will be easier with more strength! In general, people work out to look good and fell good. Give me (and yourself) 3-4 hours a week and you can look and feel your best.
