    Neither or should I say both. When it comes to burning calories it is really how much effort you put into it. I have trained hundreds of clients...Full Post

    Otaresiri yes many people confuse the deadlift between legs and lower back. I have attached a link with a video to show you how it is done. It is really for the butt and hamstrings. Sometimes well people have weak muscles they will compensate by using more of their lower back to do the work. If you have back issues becare of this exercise because if not done properly you can make your back worse.

    Hi Jeff, I have a question about dead lifts. I always thuoght they were done as a back exercise but recently I see it being done as a leg exercise. I am a little confused because the instructors at the weights class don't really explain where we should be feeling the impact, back or legs. Some do it with knees slightly bent and others with stiff legs. Can they be done for both? If yes, I want to make sure I am using the correct form because I alerady have a "cranky" lower back : ) Thaks!!!

    Jeff, I read your 4/16 blog, and I realized I hadn't sent you an update in a while. I'm trying for more balance between workouts and muscle rest/recovery. I've improved enough that my chiropractor told me to build back to my usual intensity / frequency for core exercises, etc. Thanks. Have a great weekend! ~ Vicki

    Glad you like your gym membership and getting great ideas and help. Keep up the hard work

    Glad I didn't get a dvd but paid for gym membership instead. What I noticed is as I do my program, I see additional things that I can add to my routine. Some of the women are doing yoga and I will see a stretch used that I realize I can use. Then see some of the body builders use the tricep pushdown and put in a low weight and discover with one of them teaching me, how to work on that part of my body. Today, as I finished off my program I discovered that I can now do a shoulder stand. The basics that I have learned from trainers here and some modifications from my coach at the gym seem to have really helped me develop a fitness level that I would have never imagined a year ago. ;)

    Interesting perspective on the workout DVDs Jeff. That's pretty much how it works for me as well, although there are some that I like to use when, like Tai Cheng. I get pretty bored doing the same workout even with the programs that mix it up for you.
