In this week’s Fitness Tip, Mike shows you how to bend over… I mean, he shares with you a couple variations of Rows…, and the proper technique in doing them. The bent over row is a great exercise for the back for increasing strength and size.

As always, it’s important to focus on your core, as it helps you with all of your other exercises and one of your most important muscles – it also is good for vanity reason ;) When doing core exercises, maintain your core stability by drawing your belly button up and into your spine, which is different from flexing your abs.

The two exercises Mike focuses on in this video are:

  • Plank Weight Transfer
  • Walking Plank

Behind The Cast: I’m Back!

In: Behind The Cast, Tommy D

Hey Homorazzi readers…it’s ME! Back from the dead! Well not really dead but I pretty much had absolutely zero time to do anything except Pride for the month of July, and then rest and recoup and film fest and The Odyssey closing all of August. I took a look back at when my last BTC entry was and it was at the end of June. WAHH WAHH TO ME! SO what the hell happened?

Well, I got skinnier, then I got fat again. I drank for pretty much a full month, and spent 3 week eating whatever the hell I wanted, and not sleeping, and being stressed out. I still kept working out three times a week…but sadly I went up about 6 pound. #FAIL.

Last night, Myself, Donovan, Brian, Jonny, and his boyfriend Kodie (both pictured above with Cyndi Lauper), went to the PNE here in Vancouver to check out Cyndi Lauper’s Memphis Blues concert. The place was full, a mixture of fans, young and old came out to see her in her crazy bright red mop-like hair.

This lady is still as amazing as she’s ever been. Her voice was absolutely phenominal and sided from all the uplifting blues music she performed, she also treated us with “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” and “True Colors”. She even talked about The Apprentice and the reason why she did the show was to draw attention to equality and equal rights for gays, through the “Give A Damn Campaign,” she pioneered. The crowd of course cheered to this.

But that was not the most memorable moment of the concert for me. When she stopped the concert midway through a song…that was unforgettable.

Fitness Tip of the Week: Hard Core

In: Patrick, Sports & Health

In this week’s Fitness Tip, Mike shares a few exercises with you for your core and your abs. As he mentions, for a lot of people that have back pain, it’s often the result of a week core, so it’s important to keep it strong. Crunches only hit the surface/superficial layer of the abs. It’s still important to focus on the core as a whole.

Start using these exercises today (or tomorrow)!

  • Knee Tucks
  • One Leg Touches
  • Elbow To Hand
