In a rare moment I’m ringing my own bell. Someone asked about me on a local website and I saw these replies. DING!

Full body advanced killer. I WAS ON THE FLOOR after this one.

Okay guys, it’s not so much the moves here that are hard (but if you’re going appropriately heavy, they are), it’s the KILLER format. This will take over an hour for sure, so alter the numbers if you need to save time. Here’s how:

Format is 24-20-16 with 10 V ups and 4 burpees after each exercise.

So round 1:
24 push ups
10 v ups
4 burpees
24 (total) alternating cleans (I accidentally did 24 on each side. I DO NOT RECOMMEND) *I used 35#
10 v ups
4 burpees
24 hang sn**ch *I used 25# weights
10 v ups
4 burpees
24 lunges (EACH LEG) *25# weights
10 v ups
4 burpees
24 low squats *35# weights
10 v ups
4 burpees
24 kB swing to high pull #44 kB
10 v ups
4 burpees

Rounds 2 and 3 are the same format but with 20 and 16 reps, respectively.
Put your game faces on for this one! Go heavy and steady!

Summer is right around the corner (I see that it is snowing)! Get ready to feel strong and fit with Ripped by Jules and these shoulder moves! 💪🏼 Here I combine larger muscle groups/heavier weights with lighter accessory work.

04/06/2021

Full body! AMRAP 50 minutes.

Splay push ups (10R))
Raised pausing dead lifts (8R)
Kneeling alternating sn**ches (12R total)
Weighted wall burpees (8R)
1/2 Kang squat (8R)
Push press (10R)
Weighted tabletop shoulder taps (20R total)
Full extended arm sit-up with tricep extension (12R)

Go! Find your beast!

04/04/2021

Leggggggsssssss. Kick it!

03/31/2021

Want to WORK?

These are performed in pairs:
DB skiers and squat burpees
Hang cleans and reverse crunch push
Bicep curl to front squat and side box jumps
Lateral ball toss and dead ball.

Perform the pairs of exercises, one minute each with a :30 rest, for 4 rounds. Then move to the next. This is a BEAST.

03/20/2021

While it is true that abs are made in the kitchen, I do incorporate some primary core work into my routines. Adding weights or tension bands as accessories is a great way to make something simple much harder!

03/16/2021

I have a busted knee so you’re getting more upper body than lower these days... but I love this one!
Set your timer for 50 minutes. 10 reps of each. AMRAP. Aaaaand go!

03/11/2021

For low lumbar and super strong stems, try these!

03/03/2021

Posting on that posterior chain today; all core and back from top to bottom.... plus some decline push ups because we never skip push-ups!

02/17/2021

Upper body and core today! A toughie and I’m feeling it!
:45/:15, 3 rounds.
Sandbell is 25#
KB is 30#

Enjoy!!

02/12/2021

I lovelovelove the TRX; a versatile and mobile piece of equipment that can give you a full body crush without killing you like heavy weights or high reps can. Here are a few of the hundreds of things you can do on the straps! Get after it!!

01/27/2021

Heavy on the shoulders, core, and legs today! Set your timer for 50 minutes. 10 reps of each. AMRAP. GO! Go now!

**I would love suggestions on what you all would like to see here. Please help!

01/18/2021

Upper body and core! Go heavy enough so that 12 reps for 3 rounds is a challenge! 💪🏼💪🏼

01/13/2021

Great Glutes Comin’ Atcha!

Working on that posterior chain today. As much as I wish there were more to mine, having a strong rear/glutes isn’t just about aesthetics; it keeps our core and back in check and helps to avoid injury. The last move is performed on a BOSU ball!

Tonight’s dinner was SO GOOD, so easy, AND healthy!

Thai red curry coconut soup with shrimp and scallops with “wonder noodles”.

E. had his with rice because he doesn’t think the wonder noodles are as wonderful as I do 🙂

Can be done in crockpot or on stovetop; I used the crockpot.

Add 1/2 diced onion, 3tbsp each finely minced garlic and ginger, wild mushrooms, 3 stalks of lemongrass (don’t forget to smash them first), 4 cups of chicken broth, 1 cup finely diced cilantro, 1 lime, squeezed (toss the whole lime in, too), 3 tbsp red curry paste, 2 tbsp fish sauce (or soy sauce) and 1 tbsp white sugar.

Cook the hell out of it. Fish out the lemongrass and limes. Season to taste. Add broth or water if the flavor is too strong. I like spice so I added some sweet chili sauce.

Add 1 can of LIGHT coconut milk and desired amount of shrimp and scallops (or shredded chicken).

Allow to cook for another 15 mins in the crock pot (less on stovetop).

Finish with a dash of soy or torn basil, if desired. Pour over noodles or rice.

This will be even better tomorrow!

💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

12/24/2020

HOME (FOR THE HOLIDAYS) WORKOUT!

Bodyweight only! Ten moves, some more challenging than others. To modify the push up or plank moves, perform on an incline or on your knees. To modify the lateral climbers with shoulder taps, try a standard mountain climber. Instead of the pistol squats, perform standard lunges.

Set your timer for :40/:15 and go through this 3x.

Stay safe and well. Wishing you the happiest of all holidays!

12/15/2020

Okay guys, I love this one! (Ignore where it says “round 1” and “round 2”). 10 reps of each move, except the rope jacks; you’re doing 30 of those. Set your time for 50 minutes. AMRAP. GO!

12/02/2020

Full body today!
One giant set. Set your clock for 50 minutes. 10R of everything. That means that if you’re alternating sides, it’s 10 reps on each side. Jump rope is x100.
AMRAP. Enjoy! 💪🏼💪🏼

[11/30/20]   2p private session just opened up tomorrow; anyone?! 💪🏼💪🏼

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!

Our small biz was BEST OF BOSTON in 2019. That award is shared with the men and women who seek out impeccably well rounded and sincere trainers, a unique and safe place, and killer, goal oriented workouts and comprehensive knowledge.

**^This holiday aids small businesses by drawing attention to their importance in our economy. It also helps customers who want access to unique products and experiences in their community and local economies that benefit from successful small businesses.

COVID has closed the doors to so many of these impassioned small businesses for the greater good; a sobering reminder that what we do all comes from the heart and we refuse to resign.

Show the love this season by buying 1x1 sessions, zoom classes, or online videos.

Today it’s shoulders, back, core! My favorite day! Enjoy this circuit!

SINGLE WEIGHT FULL BODY BLAST

Today is all about using a single KB or DB but getting in a beast of a full body workout. Some are familiar and some are new plays on old faves. I used this format: 8R of each, 3 or 4 rounds through.

11/12/2020

TRX today! This is my favorite piece of equipment EVER.

Full body, core engagement. The most basic but most important rules of the suspension system are: keep the straps tight the entire time and never round the back (this is done by engaging the core).

11/05/2020

UNILATERAL. Right now, the state of the country feels unilateral to most of us! But today it’s unilateral movements; using one side of the body at a time rather than distributing the workout evenly on both sides. It helps create equally strong muscles on both dominant and non dominant sides.

Work slowly and with purpose.

And here’s to uniting in the end 💗

10/30/2020

Legsssss and core!

10/16/2020

Full body Friday! Today it’s with a KB. Dumbbells can be subbed in, but the KB definitely helps engage the core slightly more.
The sixth slide, the table top KB renegade row is a super challenge- be careful!

10/14/2020

Bonded together. Core focused band moves. Adding the mini band to mid section moves we already know about brings a whole new challenge!

8 reps of each
AMRAP

Atomic push ups
Man makers
Ball throw box jump burpees
Leg climbers (8 each side)
Plank walk out
Full hanging clean
Weighted windmill
Kang squat with wide row
Unstable shrimp squat

09/23/2020

Pushing the push up game!
Push ups are my favorite exercise; once you master the standard, try these variations to amp up the arm and ab game!

09/18/2020

Full body Friday!

Here’s the format:
Do each exercise for 2 minutes with a :20 break between each.
Do each exercise for 1:30 with a :20 break between each.
