Problem During Live Workout

Arrgh!  The problem during the live broadcast appears to have been all mine. This was NOT a YouTube bug but an OHS (Operator Head Space).  I started streaming properly and I was able to see the video thru YouTube however, it appears that I forgot to click the below button: The button to "Start Broadcasting" so that YOU people could view it. Arrgh! I wasted the entire hour of your time, I'm really sorry! Live and learn. Worse yet, it wasnt recorded anywhere unless someone captured the stream. Sorry folks, as I mentioned, this was my first time.  I will...

Quarter Million YouTube Subscribers for Scooby

Quarter Million Subscribers for Scooby A heartfelt thanks to all my subscribers for trusting me! Don't worry this post isn't a self-congratulatory back patting. Someone on facebook today congratulated me on reaching a quarter of a million YouTube subscribers, I was taken by surprise. For an instant I was excited, then I was terrified. What if I fail to hold up to their expectations? What if they are disappointed? Then I took a deep breath and realized that nothing has changed. When I started I had zero viewers and I didn't care, I have never been in fitness for the...

Took a 45lb plate to the foot

Took a 45lb plate to the foot "Took a 45lb plate to the foot" is a much more useful phrase than "Took an arrow to the knee" because its a valid excuse to get out of something you don't want to do. The beauty of taking a 45lb plate to the foot excuse is that its a commonly occurring gym accident so its a very realistic excuse - far more realistic than "took an arrow to the knee". Really, unless you work at an archery camp, using the excuse "took an arrow to the knee" isn't going to get you...
