Liftlazy Whenevercast: Deadlifts, Malnutrition and Travel

Hola.  In this episode, I try to make deadlifts easier to perform via strategic cues to perfect your form. I also delve back into the nutrition education with a discussion of malnutrition and how it affects people of all sizes. Finally I answer a question on how to workout when away on business trips.

As promised, there are links to limited further reading (I’d post more but you know…laziness).

Deadlifts. Seriously, look at how many muscles are activated. Now do you believe its not just a hamstring/low back exercise?

The Institute of Medicine recommends 130 grams of carbohydrate equivalent. Very important distinction as some people may think it means eating loaves of bread like they’re Tic-Tacs. Don’t feel bad as it is very hard to decipher official medical publications.

This may make more sense to 97% of people out there. I know we’ll be revisiting this in the future.

Liftlazy Whenevercast: The Resolution Car Trip (Episode 2)

It hasn’t even been a month and already people are dropping like flies when it comes to their new year gym commitments. In this episode, I compare the mad dash to get in shape with a poorly planned car trip. It takes a little bit of time and effort before you start to make sure you don’t get “lost”.

If you have fallen off the workout wagon, have questions or just want to voice your opinion, send me an email at chris@liftlazy.com and I’ll mention it on the show.

Liftlazy Whenevercast: Episode 1

The Whenevercast is my version of a podcast. A few things led to the selection of the name. For starters, I really wasn’t sure if anybody still used an iPod. There was also the need for a name that would stand out and wasn’t taken already. Thus, the idea of the audio show you can listen to whenever you want bequeathed Whenevercast.

Names aside, this ongoing audio series is geared towards the regular person. Not the pro athlete or bodybuilder or fitness model. I’ve noticed an acute lack of material on the internet for people of all ages who don’t have the time to spend doing two hour workouts, or may have an existing injury that prevents certain movements. You won’t hear a lot of fancy language, just a “Tell me what I need to know and shut up, Chris” tone to the Whenevercasts. It’s all by design to make it easier to understand the confusing parts of fitness. Currently scheduled for a bimonthly release, each episode will feature special guests of varying backgrounds to discuss fitness topics with me. And if listeners send in questions, we’ll answer some of those as well.

So here it is, episode 1 of the Liftlazy Whenevercast! The special guest this time is Mark Pryer, a strength and conditioning expert in the Dallas area. We discuss injury prevention, core conditioning, healthy eating during the holidays and how to ease into a workout regimen for the new year.
