UR W.O.D. Today: Climb Something Tall

In my 31 years of life, I've taken jovial glee in climbing things. When I was young, I climbed trees in Louisiana and Texas. As a young adult, I climbed apartment stairs. Climb something! It's completely up to you what you choose to climb as long as it's 10 FT- 20 FT is height.  Warm-Up:... Continue Reading →

UR W.O.D. Today: Uphill Sprints

One of my favorite simple exercises are uphill sprints. To complete your W.O.D. today, find a hill with a significant incline. Once you've chosen your hill, sprint up the hill max speed/max intensity and walk back downhill to the point in which you began. It's that simple! Do that a few times and you're sure...

UR W.O.D. Today: Get a Grip

Get a grip! Seriously. I mean this both in "controlling/disciplining" yourselves when things are spiraling completely out of control and (of course) in improving your hand grip strength (duh). As we get older, grip strength naturally weakens unless we consistently engage in activities that either help us to maintain muscle mass in our hands/wrists or... Continue Reading →

UR W.O.D. Today: (Sand) Baggage

They called me "Bag Lady" -- like that Erykah Badu song of the same title about the emotional baggage we carry around with us (or was it about homelessness?) -- hmmm--- Well...I've been homeless. And I've carried --literal and figurative-- bags. Six months of homelessness in the dead of one of the most brutal Winters... Continue Reading →
