Could carb backloading help fight cavities? During my last dental cleaning the hygenist flat out said, “Wow, there’s nothing really here.  I’ve never seen anybody with so little plaque.” In all my years of going to the dentist, this was by far the easiest, no scraping I’ve ever had in my entire life!  I had […]

When I received this thing called the Fusion Mixer, I’d never owned an automatic protein shaker cup.  Never had the need really and probably still do not but it was nice to be able to quickly mix up a drink intra-workout or after. Pros: easily mixed protein not too bulky smooth mixing action Cons: uses […]

Carb Backloading Results

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 17:00:00 +0000

I think I got a few raised eyebrows when I quietly announced I was going to try Carb Backloading.  There was a little bit of a shock factor.  Here are my carb backloading results.

The Right Way to Do Dumbbell Squats

I think when his trainer said dumbbell squats, maybe they meant hold the weights not stand on them? How do people come up with this stuff? While on Facebook, this image came across my timeline.  I knew immediately this wasn’t some joke or staged exercise.  It was another “functional fitness” believer preaching the virtues of […]
