Happy hump day!
I hope you’re day is going awesome and you’re loving the fact that you don’t have to water the flowers today. I am.
In any event, I’m feeling really good b/c I rocked out a great 260 rep strength workout, had a nice lunch and had 3 really cool things I wanted to share with you.
1. Get A Follow Along Ab Workout
One of my clients, Nasrin, asked me this great question about whether she should keep losing weight to tone her stomach OR focus more on plank & crunch work. This was such a good question and with her permission, I created a really cool “Ask Mike” blog post about it and I’d like to share it with you.
If you want a short (5-18min) & effective total body ab workout to help tone your stomach, once you reach your body weight goal, and some effective & equally short results-oriented strength workouts to help you tone everything else, click here. You’ll get to see Coach Mike, busting his butt, to show you “live”, how intense your effort needs to be in order to make change happen. I even get tired, sometimes go on my hands & knees and even lie down on my face b/c I get so exhausted (the end of CW#1).

2. Give A Back Pack & Get A 1-Month Pass to CYBBC
I’ve been in the giving mode lately. It started with my cousin selling wrist bands b/c his mom / my aunt got cancer, then Springfield College, my alma mater, which was hit hard by the tornadoes lost its beautiful tree line along the Massasoit shores (SC is a beautiful campus and the Harvard of Exercise Science in my biased opinion) and then I learned about this really cool program started by the City of Newton Health & Human Services department, that is collecting back packs & school supplies to give to underprivileged kids in Newton. I don’t know about you, but I sure love to learn and nothing made learning as fun in grade school as writing in my new “trapper keeper” with my cool NFL pencils and crazy erasers and rocking out with my sweet maroon, Jansport back pack with tons of cool pockets (and hidden one’s too).
Anyways, I called the Health & Human Service Dept and asked them how many they were collecting (200) and how many they still needed (50), so I thought I’d ask you if you wanted to help too and if you did I’d do something really special for you.
Here’s the deal. Help me collect 50, 48 more bags and school supplies (see above) by donating $50 worth of goods, by 5pm this Friday, August 17, 2012 to the Main Office at the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club and be sure to let them know and me know you did it, and I’ll gift you (1) Full Access Pass to A Phase of Boot Camp ($268 value) redeemable by anyone who is a good fit for us, including new members AND past members who aren’t currently under a membership agreement. Current members may gift the certificate or sell it to someone who they feel is a good fit. Gift certificate expires in 6-months (February 16, 2013).
