JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 9

I had a supplement post planned for last week but never made it. I don't know why.

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 8

Tired. Sore. Sunburned. That's been the response in my head for the last two days when people ask how I'm doing. Friday's workout did a number on me, I halfway messed up my shoulder in MMA last week. Some freak in Brazil compromised my bank card and spent $3,200 I didn't have, leaving me with … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 8

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Workout Plan Pt. 2

Last week we covered Part 1. Catch up if you need to. One of my favorite clients is a young lady that works at a dentist's office.

On the downside, however, I … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 7

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Meal Plan: Week 5

As the fifth week of JTF's Mount Crushmore begins, so does a new meal plan. I want to start it by referencing a topic one of my favorite online trainers James Smith said in an email this week.
