Men’s Health Podcast

If you’re like me, you’re always on the hunt for good advice on anything fitness. Something I discovered while on Men’s Health.com was their podcast. Which is pretty good, the host Steve Borkowski is engaging and informative. The focus is on the magazine and it’s articles. It is really eye opening for example if you listen to the podcast you will learn about the trainers who make up the routines. Alwyn Cosgrove is a great example. Something that gets lost in the magazine (which I do read) is: what is a good rep. Or how a rep of a certain exercise is supposed to be done. For Alwyn workouts he doesn’t place emphasis on high reps, instead he focuses on proper form which in Alwyn’s case is all about control and timing. For example the push up, according to Alwyn a good push up is when you keep your feet together, andĀ  armsĀ  right under your shoulders. Your spine should be straight, when you lower yourself your chest should touch the floor. To test for this, you should be able to place a broom stick on your back and keep it from rolling off if you form is correct.
