Plie squat revisited (video post)

Tuesday, December 29, 2009


httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uPar119RE8 Remember: Feet are a bit wider than shoulder-width for stance. Only lower your body until tops of thighs are parallel with ground. When you resume starting position do not lock out knees. Pause *briefly* and lower again (and again and again…). Always keep your midsection/core tight. Please to read this. Questions? Comments? Tips? Random [...]

Viewer mail: pushups & tricep strength.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


I’m having trouble doing push ups correctly.  Can you recommend any particular exercises to increase wrist and tricep strength. My biceps rock from running with weights, but because pushups are great for back and chest muscles I would like to do them more often. My husband says to just keep building up the number I [...]

First Person Friday: A day in the life.

Friday, October 16, 2009


I’d say this is kind of a rehash—but so is my life.  And, if you skim read carefully, you’ll see it’s not a repost. My life is simply Groundhog’s Day. A Day in the Life of MizFit: Immediately after waking I head here (yes it’s the crack of dawn. no I dont set an alarm. [...]

Monday Facetime: your questions answered (video post).

Monday, September 21, 2009


This one is all about you. Three of your questions and ones which I think we’ve all had at one point or another. Hanlie asks: How do I determine which weights are right for me?  I realize that anything too light will not produce results, but I don’t want to hurt myself either. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7O3AQyZ9hg RickyRae [...]

KettleBell workouts-MizFit style (giveaway post).

Tuesday, August 11, 2009


Subtitle: The real title of this should have been ‘Allow Myself to Plagiarize Myself.’  Portions of this originally appeared in post & in a magazine.  All of today’s post was inspired by this blogger’s tweets. Writing a fitness column means my inbox overflows with opportunities to review health-related products.  Most of these solicitations I delete [...]

Viewer Mail: Training Partners & Choosing a Trainer.

Wednesday, August 5, 2009


MizFit, do you have a workout partner? if not why not? I dont (none of my friends work out when I do) & dont really want a partner—but I need motivation. I dont have a partner. And I have to admit that I have more than a fleeting jealousy of this blogger and her workout [...]

Viewer mail: Spotting 101 & Losing the Guilt.

Wednesday, July 29, 2009


Hey Miz. I know you are a big weight lifter and I had a story I wanted to share and also ask you about.  I was at the gym the other morning and a guy asked me if I could spot him (Im a woman. I also was pretty flattered because I must look stronger [...]

Viewer Mail: Treadmill Love.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Edited to say: please make a moment to read comment #3. We now return you to your regularly scheduled viewer mail… Miz, I recently started going to the gym and, alas, I have only made one friend. She’s always there for me, tells me where I have been and lets me know where I am [...]

Overtraining: LESS can be MORE.

Wednesday, July 15, 2009


I’m a newbie at the mizfit blog, but I must say i’m definitely a fan. I’m a 21 yr old female (5’4 and around 140lbs). I’m aware that I’m nowhere near being fat and that I’m healthy as it is, specially since I have a larger bone structure and a decent amount of muscle. here’s [...]

Jyze: wind up fit! (part two…)

Wednesday, May 27, 2009


Subtitle: Please, if you have not yet, take a moment and ready the first Jyze post. The Tuesday Testdrive which never transpired. Following that post, the inventor of Jyze was kind enough to drop by & attempt (once again) to help me in my failure to Jyze. Hi MizFit Let me assure you, you are [...]
