3 Ways Exercise Can Ruin Your Sex Life.

crossfit-exhaustedby Sean Croxton

Extreme exercise is all the rage these days….

The pedal-till-you-drop spin classes.

The DVD set that left a sweat stain in your living room carpet.

The poorly-designed group workout classes that seem to serve no real purpose other than crushing you.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that these kinds of programs are all “bad”.

In fact, I’m a fan of just about anything that gets people off their butts.

Hey, if your Insanity DVDs are the only thing that get you moving, have at it. Do what works.

What concerns me is when exercise programs lead to diminishing returns, especially when they put a damper on your sex life.

I mean, if you work out to look sexy but your workouts kill your sex drive, we’ve got a problem.

So on this week’s episode of The Underground Wellness Show, Strength Coach Brett Klika and I discuss the 3 Ways Exercise Can Ruin Your Sex Life. Here they are…

1. A reduction in the hormones that make you want to have sex.

2. An increase in the hormones that make you not want to have sex.

3. An increase in body image issues, leading to diminished confidence in physical appearance.

Check out the video below to get the whole scoop.

You’ll also learn how you can schedule your workouts to allow for proper rest, better recovery, and more sex!

See you next week!

FFD Workout: Build Muscle and Burn Fat with Eccentric Training!

by Sean Croxton & Brett Klika

Yo! What’s Up, Y’all!

Miss me?

Sorry for the long delay between posts. We’re still grinding away on the Real Food Summit, which launches in exactly one month! I’m pretty pumped about it. If you haven’t heard, this summit will feature LIVE daily Q&A sessions on UW Radio. I’m still figuring out the schedule, but our day one presenters will be Joel Salatin, Chris Kresser, and David Getoff. The lineup is LOADED. Stay tuned.

So, I asked you guys on Facebook a couple weeks ago what kind of workout video you wanted Brett and I to shoot. The overwhelming response was for us to do one on eccentric training, a style of training that Jonathan Bailor — author of The Smarter Science of Slim — and I chatted about on THIS RADIO SHOW.

According to Jonathan’s research, eccentric training is the BEST way to build muscle and lose fat. Interestingly enough, not many of us are doing it.

FFD Workout – DO This at Home!!

by Sean Croxton & Brett Klika

Happy Friday, peeps!

It was kind of a busy week here in UW Land. Allyson and I didn’t get a chance to film a new video for Friday Fun Day.

BUT I went through my iMovie and found a ton of footage Brett and I filmed for The Underground Workout Manual.

So I put about 10 exercises together in the video below, moving back and forth from upper- to lower-body. Do them as a circuit or just use them for ideas for creative, new stuff to add to your routine.

This footage is from the first round of Workout Manual filming. We ditched this cheap stuff and went with a professional cameraman/editor for the manual available now.

The Underground Workout Manual is LOADED with over 80 exercise videos.

Minimal equipment needed.

Twelve weeks of workouts.

Five days a week.

You never do the same workout twice!

And it’s only $39.

Order your manual HERE!

Happy Weekend. See you Monday!

Instead of blogging, I decided to make Friday come early. Why not!

In today’s early edition of Friday Fun Day, Brett Klika, author of The Underground Workout Manual, takes me through some Med Ball Madness.

FFD Workout: The Underground Workout!

by Sean Croxton & Brett Klika

I know! I’m a day behind with this one. My Friday was tied up with moving into a new apartment. Love my new place!

Today’s (or yesterday’s) Friday Fun Day is a lesson in isometric creativity, as Brett Klika, author of The Underground Workout Manual, challenges my core, balance, and toughness.

Be sure to do this one with a friend. Doing it by yourself would be, well, interesting…

Enjoy!

Last weekend, we got the band together!

With Quentin behind the camera, Josh Trent and I took it upon ourselves to turn the IDEA World Fitness Convention into a workout.

Man, was I sore! I’ve definitely been neglecting a few muscle groups.

Every year, the IDEA convention is like one big family reunion. We got a chance to hang out with some of best friends-in-fitness including Todd Durkin, Brett Klika, Linda LaRue, Josh Henkin, Marc Coronel, Jon Ham, Greg Mielle, Mike Robinson, and more.

Can’t wait for next year, when it will be held right in my own backyard in sunny San Diego. Learn more about IDEA at www.ideafit.com.

Don’t miss Brett’s BIG announcement at around the 4-minute mark. So excited!

FFD Workout: The Pilates Core Challenge!

by Sean Croxton, Brett Klika, and Chris Jarrell

Yo! Happy Friday to ya!

This week flew by! Can’t believe it’s Friday already.

Today’s workout is a burner.

Chris Jarrell, Pilates instructor at Fitness Quest 10, got medieval on us with this one. Get on the floor and try it out.

I like the slow, controlled approach that Pilates has when training the core. It really makes you feel the abdominals working.

Be sure to play close attention the cues. When performed properly, you get a lot more bang for your buck than typical abs training.

Check it out!
