Closing Time

After some long inner battles I decided to close the site down temporarily.. It may or may not be back, I don’t know. I just need to focus my attention on other things at the moment and realign myself to get my mind right and really tackle this weight problem I have.. In the meantime, enjoy the song.

Swimming Motivation for Anyone

We all remember the 5am swim sessions, the exhausting workouts, the constant consumption of bananas due to the potassium and all those who are no longer involved in competitive swimming miss it. Being a swimmer in high school I still feel a rush for anything swimming related. I’ve been really motivated lately and came across this video that took my motivation to the next level! A great video to jazz you up to take back control!

Revamp in the works

So I decided that the current model and direction of the site wasnt what I really intended so as of now its currently being ‘rebuilt’ and revamped to something a bit different. Its not going to be what I had originally planned but something new and a bit more fresh. More informative, more content, more everything. It will take some time but I will still be updating the site every so often.

Just for shits and giggles, for those who actually view my site (not many of you but some) what would you like to see? I’d like to get some input and maybe implement your suggestions. Thanks all

Music and Fitness

workoutmix

As we all know music is a big part of fitness. Without it our workouts can be boring and feel never ending. Music helps with intensity, motivation and helps with blocking out distractions such as the often terrible ‘elevator’ music playing on the gyms speakers.

So my post today is a bit different in the sense that its about a workout mix I have the pleasure of checking out before others. As far as I know I have not reviewed any workout compilations or songs before and figured now would be a good time.

Right off the bat when I unzipped the file I noticed it was separate songs. Usually mixes and compilations are one single long track with nice transitions between songs but that is not the case. These are 20 separate songs that can be selected randomly or in order within your music player. Kind of defeats the purpose of a “workout compilation”

Some of the songs are a few years old and some are rather new, within the last year. Personally I prefer fast Dubstep while hitting the weights and only seldom and selectively do I like to throw in some rap/hip hop

The song choices are pretty good such as ‘Till I Collapse by Eminem

and Can’t Be Touched by Roy Jones Jr.

As well as Avicii – Levels

Mercy (RL Grime & Salva Remix): Kanye West

And Reptile – Skrillex

There are several other songs in the ‘mix’ that are enjoyable and will help with a good pump in the gym. Overall I’d give the mix a C as its really nothing new as in a mix but it’ll help you with getting some older songs onto your ipod or player should you have forgotten that ‘one song’ stuck in your head you’ve been meaning to add.

Thanks to DoA Mixtape KillaH for providing the Mix Tape as well as Gym Booty Keep up the good work and looking forward to the next one! Should you want a copy of the Mix Tape zip please comment and let me know!

Stay Strong
