Work Out

I'm asked a bit about my work-outs, so I thought I'd post something here. I've answered queries at Facebook and at SkinnyDevil.Com (on the "about" page), but I thought I'd post here as well.'s work-out (for a typical sampling) was body-weight callistenics & cardio, broken into sets with totals below:

  1. Push-ups: 100
  2. Dips: 100
  3. Sit-ups: 400
  4. Reverse Sits: 100
  5. Bridges: 100
  6. Calf Raises: 250
  7. Squats: 100

Then some cardio, capped off by 25 pull-ups and 25 chin-ups.

Post work-out meal: Turkey tataki (seared exterior, raw interior) and an apple. Then I'll down about 16oz water.

Hope this helps. I also include running stairs, some light weight work, and punching bag (done in 3-5 minute rounds). It's also nice to stay active playing with the family & friends...rock climbing, hiking, biking, swimming (skiing, snowboarding, & tubing in the above picture).....

If you have questions, feel free to drop me a line.

It's time for the February Lifestyle Challenge!!!

What are your personal or professional goals? Writing songs? Finishing that book? Changing your diet? Exercise?? De-cluttering your life? Re-committing to a project or loved one?

My personal goals are more intense & productive workouts...

Biz goals are to either secure a booking agent or a promotional assistant who can handle some of the stuff that keeps me bogged down and less than productive....

Musical goals are (technical) to increase speed by 10% on all scales & arpeggios and (creative) to compose 4 new Alien Blue songs....

What about YOU???
