This blog is intended to be a relaxed and informal venue to track my own personal training, education, adventures, and growth as both a doctor and human being. Hopefully, you will be able to gain an idea or two about joint mobility, exercise, sport, health, chiropractic, or life in general. If not, the internet is a wide arena so check out one of the other hundreds of thousands of blogs.
The information on this site is NOT intended to diagnose or treat anyone in particular (besides myself), so before you begin any exercise/therapeutic program be sure to check with your physician first *cough* or if you are in Denver, call our office, Denver Chiropractic Center, at 303-300-0424 *cough*. I hope you have half as much fun reading this blog as I will have in writing it, so let’s begin!
Like I said, a big part of this blog will be tracking my personal fitness training and evolution, so I will be listing my workouts on a regular basis. I dont want to post my background in the first post and bore the pants off you so I will give you the briefest of brief breakdowns.
- Endomorphic body type, played football at a “soft” 6’1″ 260lbs in HS and dropped to 190lbs for past 8 years (slowly gained 25lbs back last 10 months(ouch))
- CO licensed chiropractor, Active Release Technique (ART) Full Body Certified, IKFF CKT
- Donated kidney to Greatest Father in the World in Oct. 2009
- Currently training for Triple Bypass bicycle ride on July 15, 2012
- This A.M. weighed in at 215lb ?!, with goal weight of at least 205lbs for ride
- Rode Elephant Rock 100 miler this past weekend in Castle Rock, CO and those 25lbs were definitely felt on the climbs
- Main form of resistance/anaerobic training is kettlebell (Sport & Hard Style) and bodyweight exercises
- Main form of aerobic (with plenty of tempo) training is cycling
- Diet is clean except the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Colorado micro-brews which very quickly bumps up caloric intake
Yup, that’s enough info for the time begin so here is my workout from this AM. (Disclaimer: Before each workout I perform about 5-10 min of dynamic movements to impove/sustain joint mobility and get the blood circulating. Also for 5-10 min after, I perform static stretching/foam roller/ and self myofascial release (SMR), look forward to detailed exercises on the site in the future!)
