    Butt Bible Review

    Quick and dirty takeaways: Great routines that really target the glutes, so you don’t need to worry about overtraining your legs. The order of exercises is excellent. You’ll get a good warm-up and then get into the workout. Your butt will be sore the next day. I recommend doing this workout at least two days apart from your leg day to avoid any overtraining or training through soreness. I purchased The Butt Bible DVD set by Pauline Nordin in 2013. Pauline is a great role model for women who want a top-level physique. She speaks the truth about other training techniques during the video. I especially like her comment about yoga butts, and…

I have since dropped use of the product. Now, I go without a pre-workout supplement training days. I know there are plenty of other products on the market that serve the same function, however, over the years, I have found that I can handle most workouts without a pre-wo supplement.   Old rating:…

    Bowflex Uppercut Review

    The Uppercut is the latest of BowFlex’s contraptions. It looks like a device primarily used to assist with a movement rather than add resistance. On the other hand, it looks great for exercises that involve the legs and core, such as pikes and hip lifts. I wouldn’t mind having one of these at the gym to assist my clients on more advanced pushing movements, like one arm push ups.   The material the UpperCut is made out of looks like hard plastic. That material does not last that long, so there is a design flaw with that. My overall opinion is that this piece of equipment isn’t for an advanced…
