I did the energy, power/strength, and core sequence this morning. I did not have enough time to get to the balance section, which is unfortunate, because that is one of the areas I struggle with the most. It was a great beginning to my day. I... Read more

55 laps and 171 pounds this morning. I haven't been swimming for almost 3 weeks, and it felt great to get back in the pool. As our house construction project continues (and my home gym is inaccessible), I anticipate spending more time at the Y... Read more

While it does not (as of yet) qualify as an olympic event, leaf raking season is almost upon us here in Wisconsin. I have prepared for it this year by working my lats and delts with strength training in the off-season. I've also tried to boost... Read more

Having done osteopathic manipulative (manual ) medicine for several years now, I've consistently been frustrated with my inability to treat myself. Yoga has really changed that for me. I find that holding the poses allows me to put energy into... Read more
