    While I don't put my butt on the floor, I do squat below parallel because I can and because being able to get up from that low down is useful for me with other things, like getting over beaver dams...

    You guys are totally right on the ego thing and while I feel it snapping at my heels from time to time, I don’t always go where it drives me. I know when to stop, when to pull back and how to listen...

    Thanks Jenn. I usually have tools with me to get shots like that. Some filters and a tripod. It's fun to find those leading lines of white.

    Are you doing dumbbell curls? I guess if it's important to you, keep working it. For me, doing the rest of my routine has given me some killer guns. Please do watch the joints and be careful not to...

    So true! I added some renegade rows to my workout today (pull day) and those should be really great for abdominal strength. Plus I feel really badass when I'm doing them! I don't even know what size...

    For me, one of the great benefits to strength training as opposed to bodybuilding is that I’m hardly ever sore from lifting. It’s the high weight v. high rep difference. Bodybuilding is the process...

    If you have access to a fairly heavy bell, you can do what I call 'pick up the baby'. Basically it's combining a squat and a squeeze between your palms and a lift to head/eye height. As if you're...
