Greetings fellow fit desk jockeys and fitness freaks. I can’t believe that it’s already been over a year since I started my blogging and fitness journey at buildingleanmusclemass.net! First off I humbly ask for your forgiveness since this post is actually about a month late, but I assure you I was not off eating bonbons. Secondly, I’d ...Read the rest →
I’ve received emails now from a few fellow fit desk jockeys asking for an update on my 100 consecutive push-up goal. For those of you who’ve just recently found the site, back in July I gave myself the personal challenge of being able to do 100 consecutive push-ups in a post called Power-up Your Workouts with Push-ups.

Many would-be muscle builders put the cart before the horse when it comes to building muscle by doing things like struggling like novices under the bench bar before they’ve ever even attempted a proper push-up.

Greetings Fellow Fitness Freaks!
It’s already been almost exactly 3 months since I started my fitness journey, so I thought it might be time to see if I’m making any progress. To be honest I was a little nervous. I knew deep down that if the results weren’t what I’d expected, I’d probably get a little down on myself, despite feeling incredibly more healthy and fit!
Well, I just got back from having my body fat analyzed and the results are in! ...Read the rest →

Like improving your financial position, improving your fitness position begins with honestly and mercilessly assessing your current position. Sometimes we get in the habit of treating our bodies like a checking account that we keep writing checks out of without once looking at the balance. Unfortunately in cases of both finance and fitness ignorance is seldom ever bliss, and eventually the piper comes calling.
