Get-Fit Guy – How Long Should You Recover Between Sets?
An important aspect of finding the elusive perfect workout is also finding the perfect recovery time between sets. But this endeavour may be more about intuition than science with a hefty dose of “it depends” thrown in. 

Get-Fit Guy – How to Get Rid of Shin Splints
What are shin splints, what causes them, and which exercises can help get rid of them? I have some possible solutions to your lower leg pain. 


Monster Squat Jumps

In this video, I demonstrate how to do Monster Squat Jumps.

The sequence goes like this:

  • Basic squats
  • Add in the jump
  • Lateral Monster walks between each jump.

This is a heck of a great way to build some explosive power, strength, and get your heart rate up (cardio, if you will) all at the same time.

Social Media:

The most popular social media post I had this week was this Instagram video of me swimming in the (frigid) water near my house. I started by walking on the beach each morning, then progressed to basically running in and out of the water, then I started staying neck-deep in the water for as long as 15 minutes, and now I am swimming a few hundred meters! Fun!

To be honest, I will be happy when the summer weather warms to water a bit but for now, it is a great way to start the day!
