Fitness Ridge Day 13, aka Biggest Loser Resrot Malibu

The day started off the same as last Friday, I missed the morning stretch to take care of some work.  There is a noticeable difference on the hikes between a morning where I do get a stretch and a morning I don’t get a stretch.  I have developed a new appreciation for stretching.  Soon to…

Fitness Ridge Day 12 aka Biggest Loser Resort Malibu

6:00 AM stretch with Michael C.  This was the first morning we had a different instructor for a stretch class.  Michael approaches the stretch class as a relaxed way to “activate” body parts, yet he incorporates dynamic stretching techniques.  In case you haven’t figured out “dynamic stretch” is trainer code for we are going to…

6:00 AM Dynamic Stretch with Sam.  A clear indication that the people who are staying here this week are ”lamer” than those that were here last week, Monday stretch full, Tuesday Stretch 30% less, Wednesday stretch less than 30% of Mondays participation.  As usual the “stretch” was more of a warm-up; it is a great…

Fitness Ridge Day 9

6:00 AM dynamic stretch.  This morning’s dynamic stretch with Sam actually felt good.  I am 100% more flexible then I was last Monday.  At the conclusion of the stretch Kent and I both realized that we are going to have to work twice as hard to try and lose another 10-15 lbs.  Neither one of…

Day 8 Weigh In & Rest I am a convert.  Last night at 11:00 PM PST I spent an hour in the gym lifting weights, because I felt I hadn’t worked hard enough yesterday.  I did a workout which included Chest, Back, Biceps, Triceps, and Abs, using weights that were challenging yet a weight I…

Fitness Ridge Day 7

6:00 AM no set class this morning, aka the Tracy and Tara show.  I don’t know if they realize how essential their friendship was to our groups cohesiveness.  T & T have that boundless friendship which could only be developed by years of drunken celebration, interpersonal counseling, and having a deeper file on skeletons in…

Fitness Ridge Day 6

Quick note thanks everyone for the really nice comments, text messages, and facebook messages.  I will respond to all of you as soon as I get a chance.  Time is very much in a vacuum here. 6:00 AM missed the morning stretch because I forgot about the paychecks for one of the washes back home.  …

Fitness Ridge Day 5

6:00 AM core workout with Cameron.  The “core” is comprised of your abdominal muscles, your gluteus (ass) muscles, and your back muscles.  They stabilize your body; hence they are called your core area.  If you haven’t worked out in a long time core exercises suck.  When you are as heavy as I am your core…

Fitness Ridge Day 4

6:00 AM dynamic stretch with Sam.  This morning’s dynamic stretch was significantly easier then Monday morning stretch.  The gist of a dynamic stretch is to perform stretching positions in motion.  Example “Ankle Crushers”, instead of standing in the same spot rolling your ankle over to the outside, you take a half step forward doing the…
