This week we take a detour. Most people l know what I think of multi-colored weights and how useless they are. Great to hold doors open, lousy to get in shape with.
Lo and behold I come across an article about superstar trainer Tracy Anderson and her method. This method uses 3 pound weights.
So we spend the episode delving into this.
Again, don't get hostile with me, I am only offering opinions on the subject.
Aside from that, it is probably the funniest podcast I have ever done.
Check it out, you will like it.

It was a week where I stepped into a time portal and was transported back into the 80's. No , not the cool 80's with CaddyShack, Stripes and New wave music. More like 80's aerobic hell where bunny hops and pink and blue lycra ruled.
Apparently there are a number of people from back in the day that are now presenting programs "updated" with new science like:
(These are Actual Quotes)
- The secret is engaging muscles called fast-twitch fibers.
- During a strength training session, you’re typically working your fast-twitch muscles.
- Research shows that it’s not what you do that makes a difference in strength training, but how you do it, especially after age 40.
- Because the fibers in fast-twitch muscles are denser, working them gives you a quicker visual payoff and they burn fat longer…up to several hours after a workout!
Yes you too can activate fast twitch muscle fibers with 2 1/2 pound weights. Let's build some crazy strength with those multi-colored dumbbells folks....
Also, enjoy my experience with watching a "Extreme Interval Training" cd. As part of my continuing ed, I spent $80 to learn about bunny hops and other such silly moves.
Listen, I don't make this stuff up, I just report it. If I hadn't received this ad about building strength with 2 1/2 pound weights I wouldn't have believed it either.
Did somebody out there ask for Online Personal Coaching for $10/month?
