Death to Dadbod: Double Powers

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Double Unders are CrossFit’s Broccoli. Consistently overlooked as a staple in their field, yet their presence is always felt and the value is unavoidable. Plus, both Double Unders and Broccoli are high in fiber. And they’re both at their best when soaked in a cheesy soup. If you’re looking for Double Under Tips, you’ve come to the right place. I’m actually pretty decent at Double Unders. At least compared to everything else fitness related. I haven’t practiced in years, yet …

Death to Dadbod: Bodyweight Boom Boom

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Bodyweight workouts can be fun. You don’t have to carry around weights and plates and mates and dates. It’s just you, your body, and the thrill of good movement.  Not for me, though. My body has extra weight. Particularly in the midsection. Anytime you’re participating in bodyweight workouts, one must remember to consider your body, your weight, and prepare for a longer workout than you expected.   My grandmother recently asked me how much beer I drank. When I said not …

Death to Dadbod: High Elevation

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Colorado Springs is cool. My wife and I spent the weekend there while our kids were at church camp and we absolutely loved it. The food was great, our hotel was amazing, and the people were super nice. The SCP gym was awesome, it was perfect for a hotel workout. My only negative experience was due to the high elevation.  Oh. My. Goodness. My lungs were on fire. I live in Salt Lake City, I thought elevation wouldn’t be a …

Death to Dadbod: Weight Loss Program

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

So many people are looking for a weight loss program. Like, 60,000 people every day are using the Google to find their next big “slim down” plan.   I’m not going to bash any weight loss program, I don’t have the mental fortitude to be an expert dietitian. Honestly, I don’t have the mental fortitude to turn down a free cookie. (If it’s chocolate chip, of course. Any other cookie is an inferior cookie and should be thrown away. Oatmeal …

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

Before we get to the running workout… Ahem. 5 years ago, I married the love of my life. Joanie is my inspiration, the most humble person I know, and lights up my day without saying a word.

They’re these hilarious little copies of their mother, except now they got some really bad habits from me. Bella has my disabling …
