Move To Master: Deep Swimmer’s Press

The Deep Swimmer’s Press is one of my favourite weightlifting moves for many reasons, but the most important reason is that it’s a multi-tasker.I love moves that help simplify your workout, so that you can work a maximum number of muscles in less time.

Menopausal: But What a Difference a Workout and Sunshine Makes

In the past two years, since falling prey to Menopause Disorder—my alter ego, that She Siren, compelling wailer of distress—my once religious-like workouts have threatened to come to a complete halt. And I don’t even want to tell you what my eating habits and attempts at dieting have been like, more like a sitcom of Mama Cass versus Twiggy.

Just Pump It

Today felt as if it was the first day I went back to the gym post The Comedian. I joined the gym back in January and went regularly until I decided to become a Shredhead and train for a 5k. I ignored the class schedule taped up on the fridge and never gave it a second thought. After the 5k however, I felt I needed more. Since The Comedian has officially weaned herself with a snub nose and stiff arm to my chest I figured now was the best time. I can lose my weight and get toned up again. Simple. ...more
