10 Commandments of Being a Bro

June 16, 2014

One of the most sacred places in a young-bro’s life is his hometown gym. You’ve been gone since winter break and now have the opportunity to make a first impression. This is your time to shine! The cute girl at the front desk, you always ask for a towel because that’s the only thing you have the nuts to say. The super ripped Personal Trainer, the ‘Bro-seidon’ that everyone wants to look like…you even get a shot to impress the gym manager, hoping that you will get offered your summer dream job…Ah, the holy grail of weight lifting…nothing will ever compare to that hometown feel.

Negative but Optimistic for Gains

June 09, 2014

What I think I like the most about training are all the personalities I have the opportunity to work with. With each person having a different perspective and thought process, it makes every training hour unique and my time more fun! Working with the same demographic over time, you can see common trends in these personalities. The ladies always want ‘toned’ arms and ‘tight and flat’ abs. Every guy wants to fill out his tank with traps that look like the Rocky Mountains and veins like the Amazon exploding out of their arms. Then there’s me- the trainer whose daunting task it is to make these goals happen! Well, for the ladies, stay tuned…I’ll get to that another time. For my fellas, read on, you don’t want to miss this one!

“I Love Cardio…” – Said No One Ever

June 02, 2014

Finals week is over. Done. FINI. Summer is officially here. Your time is now devoted solely to you, no more wasting time on that bullshit gen-ed history class…nothing but your hometown crew and sun for the next 3 months!

Like any break, you have some serious shit coming up…your boys beach house for the 4th of July…Atlantic City for a pool party, and you’re probably hitting a festival, EDC, Ezoo, Life in Color, or something of the sort. That’s a lot of naked time and you’ve got to look and feel your best. It’s crunch time now. No worries fellas…that’s what I’m

here for! I understand winter has been long and bulk season gets the best of everyone…but that 4 week cut, adding some steady-state cardio, just hasn’t gotten you back to that summer shred you’ve been chasing!

Bulkvember

November 21, 2013

You’re eating everything in sight and then some. Your friends don’t seem to understand it and keep telling you how fat you’re getting. They just don’t get the fact that you’re not getting fat, “I’m bulking bro”.

So you put on a few extra pounds, double bacon cheeseburgers by day, 2 Chipotle burritos by night. You are only a few weeks away from your balfpoint aka bulking half point aka Bulksgiving. That’s right the perfect opportunity to take a step back and say, “am I doing the clean bulk that I intended? Have I been putting on quality muscle mass over the past few weeks?”

A Future Lawyer’s Take On Supplements

June 25, 2013

Supplements are very effective, but before I give my recommendations, please note that your drive is the biggest tool in bettering your fitness and health. Fitness success requires personal goals, coupled with proper determination in achieving them. That determination means generally eating healthy and showing up at the gym. You can improve your TV settings by sitting on a couch, but a couch potato is still a couch potato. They do say, “abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym.”

Principles

May 30, 2013

Never compromise your principles…This concept will always shadow my health and fitnessphilosophy, thanks to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a chubby, out-of-shape politician who somehow is one of my biggest workout influences. Before I carryon, let me non-regretfully admit that I heard him say this while watching his interview with Oprah Winfrey by myself, like Steven Glansberg eating ice cream alone in Superbad.

Self-Confidence Knocks Out Fear

May 22, 2013

Take a moment to guess what your body can achieve…YOU’RE WRONG, because you can do more. The first step is establishing whether or not you believe in yourself. Don’t expect me to spit out bullshit by saying you can do anything if you believe in yourself, because you can’t. Nobody can do everything, but if you’re self-confident, you’ll try more things and will be shocked as to how good you truly are.

Chicken Legs

May 15, 2013

Chicken legs suck and don’t look good. That’s the moral of this post. Legs make up half of your body and are practically everything’s necessity. If you don’t work them, you’ll look disproportionate with a big upper body and tiny lower body.

WORKOUT YOUR LEGS TWICE A WEEK…OR IN A 7-DAY SPAN. Like any big risk, leg workouts produce the biggest rewards (that’s my cliché for the day). It’s an amazing feeling after getting

Chest Day Rest Day

May 01, 2013

“Lie down on this bench and push that bar upwards.” That’s a chest day for y’all, and those are actually great instructions for most chest workouts.

 (Be a bodybuilder, not a weightlifter video)
While necessary for a strong physique, people often overuse chest days, leading to a disproportionate body. If your chest is stronger than your back, Disney fanatics will worship

Unconventional Mentality

ALL ABOUT MENTALITY

Hi. My name is Jordan Greenberg, I am currently finishing up my second year at The John Marshall Law School, and I had a fat stage in my life.

From this before/after picture, there’s a fat, insecure guy on the left and a lean, more confident guy on the right, clearly capturing the extremes at both ends of the spectrum.

Brauny’s “Female” Take

March 07, 2013

This week’s take is going to be a little bit different. One of my best friends, Alyssa, works at a gym in Chicago and is around fitness 24/7. She is as much a fitness addict as I am, so I trust her every opinion.

With that being said, this blog will pertain to women only. Guys, you can read it, but I don’t think it’s going to do you any good (pervs). You can skip right to the bottom.

Gym Bag Swag

February 13, 2013

Does it take you long to decide what to bring to the gym? Well in this blog, I’m going to talk about all of the essentials that you should throw into your gym bag, mostly for men (sorry ladies but I’m not sure I’m interested in what you throw into your gym bag (TMI)). Most of these things are items that you need besides your normal essentials like tanks, shorts, sneakers, headphones, etc. You go to the gym to look and feel good, so why not bring that mentality into

Are You Spring Break Ready?

February 05, 2013

Hello people. So, in honor of the super bowl and the ridiculous amount of wings and beer you all consumed on that given Sunday, I am going to start my spring break diet/workout with y’all. It’s NEVER too early for beach season.

Now, this spring break segment is not going to be covered all in 1 shot. It’s a process. Each section will be written as you progress and keep up with my plan. It’s supposed to get harder and harder as the segments go on, so keep up, if you can.

Mind over Food

January 29, 2013 1 Comment

So we all have those mid night munchies or urges to just pig out, well except for me because I have something called SELF-CONTROL!

Besides myself, excuse me, I think you all need to learn that it’s all a mind game. Your stomach always hears what your mind is thinking, so don’t even think about it.

Gentlemen, you might think this post isn’t for you… However, I’m here this week to change your preconceived notions about the practice. Let’s call it BROga.

Thanksgiving Fat to a December 6-pack.

November 27, 2012

In light of Thanksgiving, I am going to explain how you can shed that overstuffed belly in order to look your best for December vacation, that’s if you choose to go on a much needed beach vaca (It’s what I’ll be doing… These abs need some sun).

In order to shed that turkey weight, you fatty, you’re going to want to get back into the gym as soon as possible. Start nice and slow and get back into the grind of things. I know its

So this week I’m going to talk a little bit about gym attire and etiquette.

Cheat Day.

2 words that simply mean so much to a health freak like me.

Get Fit…Or Die Trying

September 10, 2012

Curvy, thunder-thighed, and hip-py. I’m a Hispanic girl with hips that don’t lie and ones that will never go away. I’ve never been one to have a “workout routine.” What is that word routine anyways? Does anybody really do the same exact thing everyday of their lives? Especially when they’re in college?

Pushed Back but Never Knocked Down

August 27, 2012

My good friends and former roommates over at Campus Protein asked me if I’d help contribute to a guest blog for the company. And while I know next to nothing about blogging and would consider myself as knowledgeable about supplements as the average fraternal brothern, the company has had too large of an impact on me, my family and closest friends for me not to write a testimonial.
