Once you have received that message — that those muscles have been worked hard —  you don’t want it to linger, do you?

Here’s a quick list of 10 steps you should always take before, during, and after a workout.

Adventurer, world explorer, thrill seeker ... not really. Just a guy who spent nearly 40 years writing and editing for newspapers and one really good news website. Well, that's over. And so is the struggle to live well in the USA. My wife, Rose Alcantara, and I moved to Belize in early 2014. It has been an amazing adventure but there is always so much more to learn. You'll find out about our life on Ambergris Caye on this blog, oftentimes exactly when we do. So stick around.
