Mondays are upper body workout day. A common lift for this day is incline bench press.
Wednesdays are my lower body workout day. Most recently I did back squats with a twist: a three second pause at the bottom of each rep.
Dumbbells are great for doing a variety of auxiliary lifts. Versatile and easy to change weight.
When it is too cold to run outside, you will find me doing my cardio on an indoor track. On Fridays, a one and a half mile run is my go to.
Eggs are a staple of my morning routine and overall diet. It is an anomaly if I eat any less than a dozen a week.
Video games are a great way for me to unwind or connect with my little cousins. Though, they are far from my strong suit.
70s, 80s, 90s it does not matter, I love music. Most of all classic rock, especially the bands pictured here.
Though I enjoy all sports, football and the NFL is my true passion… specifically the Minnesota Vikings.
I recently took up reading before bed at night. My first book was “1984” by Orwell and now I am reading murder mysteries.
Bingeing TV is a good way to pass time during colder months. Community, Arrested Development, and Always Sunny in Philadelphia are some of my favorites. Recently I started Modern Family.
As the Student Station Manager, I spend a lot of time in the KMSC studio.
A personal creation of mine I call “Cadenade”. A low calorie drink for a Friday night.
