Running with asthma may seem impossible. But as an asthmatic, I promise you can become a runner if you know these three things when you start!
This is the obligatory “get to know you” episode of the new Geek Fitness Podcast. I talk about how I lost 150 pounds because of Harry Potter
When I couldn’t fit on a roller coaster because I weight 310 pounds, something had to go. And that something was 150 pounds and a whole lot of emotional baggage.
It is a sad fact that most people gain back most of the weight they lose within a 5-year period. But it’s possible to avoid falling into that trap.
I made a lot of progress on a lot of fronts, from gaming to fitness to finishing out some freelance contracts. Forward momentum feels good, you know?
More runners need to use the Stronglifts 5×5 strength training program. I loved it. I made gains megafast and felt like a superhero doing it.
The idea of starting over after gaining weight is terrifying, but it’s totally possible. You just have to get your mind in the right space.
I’m not scared of ghouls and ghosts. My biggest fear isn’t something popping out of the shadows to eat my brains. It’s the fear of getting fat again.
Stop overthinking your goals and resolutions and go break a sweat. You will always fail to get results if you keep making excuses not to work out.
Until I went to Hogwarts, I weighed 310 pounds. Now, I’m 170 after changing my lifestyle based on what I learned there.
