Get beach-ready in 90 days

Me after doing Shin Ohtake's MAX Workouts
It's April and the sun is starting to show itself from the cloud-cover it's been hiding under for the past 5-6 months.
Many have already started cutting in order to get beach ready for the summer, to show off the hard work they've put in during winter.

If you haven't started cutting already, this is a good opportunity to get started.

Check out MAX Workouts by Shin Ohtake. Completing that will help you get beach ready, and only in 90 days, which means you still have most of summer left!

Get it now, before it's too late to do anything about it!

Compression gear - Does it really work?

Wearing Compression
Shorts post-exercise
I know, I have been silent for some time, but it has been summer holidays and now school has started again. Now, back to the subject.
I see a lot of people at the gym wearing compression gear. Socks, shorts, tights or shirts. But what evidence is there to suggest that it actually does improve your performance in the gym.
I've read a few studies(1–3) about the effects of compression gear during and post-workout.

Getting the most out of every workout

From Google Images
A couple of months ago, I made a post about how to NOT miss a workout, and today I want to give you a few tips, on how to get the most out of every workout you do.

Have a plan of attack:
When going to the gym, you should already have a plan in your head, on paper or on your phone (I use Fitocracy for iPhone). Is it cardio, endurance, or resistance you'll be focusing on today?
That way, you know what equipment and/or exercises you will go through during your workout.
