LATEST BLOG ENTRIESPreparing gym for Zwift Island!
If you’re a cyclist, you’re probably well aware of the new indoor training software Zwift. Zwift is currently in beta, and you must request an invite if you want to participate in the beta program. I received my invitation late last year, but I have been doing all my riding outdoors lately, and never bothered to try it out–until yesterday. First, if you’re not familiar with Zwift, here’s the gist: Zwift is an online community… [Read more]

Just 3 more days of cutting to go, and I’m glad.
There no doubt in my mind that I’m ending this cut at the right time. In fact, a strong argument could be made that I should have ended it this past Sunday. There’s simply not much fat left to lose. If I were a bodybuilder preparing for a contest there would still be work ahead, but I’m not dieting for aesthetics, I’m dieting for athletic performance. A lot of people people don’t realize that all… [Read more]

Inversion board for lower back pain.
Some of you may recall that back when I was doing very heavy squatting and deadlifting I suffered from lower back pain. This pain was usually a dull ache that never really went away, but occasionally something would “pop” while I was lifting and I’d be totally out of commission for anywhere from a few days to several weeks. The nearly constant lower back ache was super annoying, but I learned to live with it…. [Read more]

New progress photo; Final week of cut–the plan.
With my 2015 cut almost behind me, I can almost taste the movie theater popcorn I’ll be enjoying while on my vacation! I won’t be going completely insane while I’m on holiday, but I will definitely enjoy a few treats. My mom and her friend are coming from Texas to stay with us, and there’s no doubt that in addition to popcorn I’ll be digging in to some of my mom’s amazing cooking. We’ll probably… [Read more]

My cycling month in review: February 2015
A new month is upon us and, as I always do at the beginning of a new month, this morning I’m going to review some of my cycling highlights, personal records and totals from the previous month. My 2015 cut is nearing its end and, despite eating under maintenance for more than eight weeks now and dropping more than 20 pounds (so far), my power on the bike seems to be fine. In fact, I… [Read more]

2015 cut progress report: week #8
Week #8 of my 2015 cut is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. PLEASE NOTE: A few words about my methodologies and body fat percentage My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is the most accurate “at-home” method of… [Read more]

2015 Cross-Florida training rides begin today.
Some of you may recall that last April I did the 33rd annual Cross-Florida (XFL) ride. At 270 kilometers (167 miles), it was truly an epic day in the saddle (the ride can be split over two day, if desired, but I did it as a single ride). You can check out my 2014 XFL ride reports here: Part I and Part II. The ride itself was amazing and quite memorable, but I also… [Read more]
