We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to quarantining and restrictions lifting. However, it will be a while before many feel comfortable with working out in gyms again. Even before the pandemic some people just preferred to workout at home. The selection below is a mix of price ranges, target age, and exercise type to find one that fits almost anyone!

Yes, it's a pretty well known fact now that most of these transformations (particularly men) are steroid fueled. You simply can't gain 22 pounds of lean mass without some chemical help. NOT POSSIBLE.

I've seen people gain 22lbs in 8 weeks on a dirty bulk that ends up resulting in 8-10lbs of muscle and the rest fat. However, to gain that much lean mass and be that lean at the same time ....just not naturally possible, even on steroids that's a tall task.


It should also be noted that the boost in fat burning is relatively small. In a typical cardio session burning 20% more fat is almost negligible. For fat loss most studies support weight lifting being superior as it may increase metabolism for as much as 72hrs after training where metabolism boost from cardio is more contained with in the time you're training.

The information is true or at least there is more information saying it's true than not but it's probably not a significant enough protocol to be worried about.


Thanks! I'm glad you found this helpful. I believe this basic outline will help people with sensitivity to gluten or Celiac Disease to get going the fastest by simplifying it.


The biggest challenge for people with gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease is often knowing where to start. It can be a shock to find out that you must adhere to a gluten-free diet in order to get well. In the beginning, people find out quickly that a startling number of foods, particularly processed foods, contain wheat, barley, or rye. It can be so overwhelming for some that they don’t know where to even start. No worries! This article will outline the easiest to follow and fastest way to start living gluten-free and getting on the road to recovery.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of articles available that will tell you the correct way to follow the ketogenic diet. The very basics are eating less than 50 grams of carbs and 60 percent or more fat and the rest in protein. However, my aim for this article is to help you identify the signs that you are doing keto wrong!

Lack of energy

If you’re on a ketogenic diet and have no energy, you are most certainly, without a doubt doing something wrong. This assumes there’s nothing else happening in your life causing you to lose sleep. …


The subject of gluten can set off flame wars on Facebook in an instant. There is evidence that gluten may be problematic for many people, in varying degrees. Gluten intolerance can be quite hard to diagnose which leads to a glut of people experiencing gastrointestinal problems saying they are gluten intolerant when maybe they aren’t. Then add in the folks that simply think eating gluten-free is healthier regardless of symptoms or not and it stirs the pot.

Regardless of what you may think of gluten intolerance and people eating a gluten-free diet, there is a small section of the population…


You can never have too many starting pitchers and the Minnesota Twins add another to the stable with the signing of Matt Shoemaker. The deal is only a one-year $2 million deal with incentives for innings pitched up to $2.25 million.

Shoemaker showed he could be a competent starter at the Major League level coming in second in the 2014 rookie of the year vote. Hist 2015 season wasn’t as strong as his rookie season but still respectable. Near the end of the 2016 season is when the wheels began to come off for Shoemaker.

A string of bad luck

In September of 2016, Shoemaker…


Over the last couple of days, there have been reports that the Denver Broncos are pursuing a trade with the Minnesota Vikings for Kirk Cousins. While there are pros and cons to making such a trade, and it may not be realistic. Nonetheless, the trade idea is intriguing and could make sense for the Minnesota Vikings.

Cap Considerations

The 2021 cap hasn’t been set yet but it will likely be between $180-$183 million. The Vikings currently sit at about $195 million toward the cap. Kirk Cousins will take up $31 million for 2021 but jumps to $45 million in 2022. So for…


The ketogenic diet has gained popularity over the past several years. Stores have health food sections with many keto-friendly items. More and more health and fitness professionals are advocates of the diet as well. Prior to keto becoming prominent, Gluten-Free was all the rage. In this article I will take a look at the reasons why eating a gluten-free, ketogenic diet may not only help you lose weight but also key to living a healthy lifestyle.

Defining Keto and Gluten-Free

I won’t be going into great depth in this article on exactly how to follow either of the two diets but it’s important to…
