NCCPT/ACE certified personal trainer AND board-certified physician. FREE initial consultation and training session. Contact me today to schedule!

As a physician, I witnessed the long-term effects of physicial inactivity on the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of my patients. I saw countless cases of diseases that could either be prevented or treated with physical exercise. In many cases, people had a general awareness of the benefits of exercise, but were fuzzy on the details. A vast number of illnesses -- including diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, chronic back pain, depression, and anxiety -- can be managed solely with exercise combined with a healthy diet. That's right. No pills, no insulin injections, and no trips to the therapist. I can tell you with absolute honesty that there has been almost nothing more beneficial to my happiness and well-being than physical activity. It gives me a sense of joy and aliveness that I hope to bring to each and every client I work with. Sure, you'll look great, but that's secondary. It's how different you will feel that is of primary importance. My approach is to make exercise fun. I use a combination of resistance training, plyometrics, and core work that engages your whole body during the workout. By using constantly varying workout routines, your body will be rapidly transformed. Whatever your particular goals are, I am there for you every step of the way as a guide and as a motivator!

SORENESS IS NOT:
1. a sign of an effective workout
2. caused by lactic acid
3. a goal in itself
4. a reason to not work out

Soreness is INFLAMMATION, likely the result of damage to the contractile units of your muscles from eccentric contractions, with muscle lengthening under tension. This happens, for example, as you control the descent into a squat or a push-up. CHRONIC, UNRELENTING inflammation will f*ck up your body.

If you are exceptionally sore from a previous workout, and you want extra training volume that isn’t going to create more soreness, it may be a good idea to focus on concentric-only movements, like sled pushes or ball slams.

Remember, soreness is an occasional byproduct of hard training, but shouldn’t be the goal. High repetitions have lots of eccentric contractions, creating lots of soreness, so it is wise to use some kind of resistance and minimize the repetitions, unless you like being sore all the time. That’s a stupid idea.

IS DEADLIFTING BAD FOR YOUR BACK?

NO! With proper coaching, deadlifts are among the most useful exercises for building strength in the very muscles that will PREVENT back injury. That’s right...properly executed deadlifts PREVENT back injury by strengthening the spinal erectors and abdominal muscles; all the “core” muscles that are responsible for keeping your spine from getting hurt. They can teach you how to pick things up SAFELY in a controlled environment, so that when you are having to pick up a heavy box from the floor in an uncontrolled environment, you are much less likely to hurt yourself. It trains you to pick things up in a safe, effective manner, using your muscles for support instead of your bendy and treacherous spine. An unsupported spine is no good. Learn how to keep it safe by learning how to deadlift.

Sorry...sitting on your butt isn’t going to keep you safe, but it may do the opposite.

Observe someone who sits at a desk for decades and does nothing else: stooped posture, stiff neck, tight hips, tight back, lack of ass. In contrast, distance runners stand taller and are less likely to be obese, but somehow look skinny and flabby at the same time, can hardly squat down to pick something off the floor because their hamstrings are so tight, and the only part of their body that seems to have any muscle at all is their calves. You may think this was a mistake in our biology, but it isn’t. Your body is designed to adapt to the posture it assumes most of the time. Remember that it’s not only important to stay active, but to move in ways that will keep your body strong and flexible lifelong.

If you don’t have a good reference point, you can’t measure progress. That’s one of the reasons it’s important to go full-range. Going partial range, while sometimes useful, doesn’t allow for reliable assessment. Here are a couple examples for ya. Stay safe, kids.

My job is to walk a fence between my clients’ short-term desires and my long-term desire of helping them become healthier and happier people. Nonetheless, people are motivated by short-term results despite knowing, at least intellectually, that it is not a mature attitude.
.
However, people are not rational, and it takes experience to learn how to mold irrational desires towards an achievable long-term goal. Many clients are willing to do more essential movement patterns, like squats, if I agree to throw in less important, but more aesthetically rewarding, muscle isolation exercises, like bicep curls and abs.
.
The transient swelling and soreness in their muscles provides a psychological reward that makes clients stick with it, while all the stuff I’m making them do is actually accounting for most of their results.
.
I’ve long since learned that it doesn’t matter if people know what’s good for them. “It’s good for you” is not enough to motivate behavior change, unless provided with a short-term dopamine hit that keeps them interested.
.
I’m always navigating the line between meeting my clients expectations and having them see the bigger picture, and if there is too big of a gap, it doesn’t always work. To the extent possible, I’d rather do what I think is right rather than what’s marketable.

Lincoln (the dog, not the president) is an ideal client. He shows up with a great attitude, follows instructions, doesn’t complain, and puts 100% into what he does. He doesn’t regret his past, and he isn’t worried about the future. Lincoln is a good boy. Be a good boy. Be like Lincoln. #whosagoodboy

Let the bar rest in the crease.
.
Lead with the 1st two knuckles.
.
Keep a neutral wrist.
.
Now the weight is directly over the thicker bony structures.
