Will I Get ‘Bulky’ If I Lift Weights?

No doubt you may have guessed by now that I’m a big fan of weight training.  And not in the lift five pounds, fifteen times to get ‘toned,’ kind of way either… Quite simply put there isn’t a form of exercise out there that has so many upsides and so few downsides when you learn how to do it properly.

Why You Should STOP Doing Sit-Ups

(And what to do instead…) I don’t want to be an alarmist, I just want to start out by being honest today. I wish the ‘Crunch’ and ‘Sit-Up’ would mostly just die already.
