Hi. I'm a musician, small business owner, husband and father of two terrific daughters in Nova Scotia. I've been a weight lifting enthusiast since I was a teen, but between asthma and bad diet choices have never seen my personal fitness goal. Well, I turn 40 next spring, and I'm determined that I'll hit it in the best shape of my life, a good example for my children, and possessing visible abs! :)

Other Information:
Do as much quality work as you can whenever you can, while remaining as fresh as possible. This is the Russian philosophy of strength training, and contrasts sharply with Western training to failure.
It boils down to this: you'll get stronger faster, and your joints won't hurt :)

Thanks so much for your input on my blog - very much appreciated. I understand that the more someone weighs, the more cals they burn, but some of these people weigh close to what I do. I'm pretty fit, but I do have about 10 pounds to lose so seeing low numbers on the HRM is a bit discouraging, ya know? Anyway, I have a Polar F6, it's awesome.

I see you're new to Spark! Welcome! hope you like it and it works for you! take care! - Tonya
