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: Anniversary Running Workout

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. She loves me in the purest sense. #RibRib It’s been a wild, amazing chapter in our lives. Our kids are awesome. They’re these hilarious little copies of their mother, except now they got some really bad habits from me. Bella has my disabling …

Death to Dadbod: Hot Sauce and Push-ups

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod

This one is a total body workout with Push-ups. I love hot sauce. If someone hands me a bottle of hawt sawce I’m going to put it on my food. Heat makes the flavor better. I don’t waste time with the phony warnings or recommendations on dosage… if you like it enough to recommend it, I’m going to pour it on. And because of who I am as a person, I tend to put too much on. Sometimes, this doesn’t …

Death to Dadbod: Fortnite Fitness

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

My son is obsessed with Fortnite. He knows all the dances, the landmarks on the map, and uses words like EPIC to describe a squad victory. I listen to his stories because I love him. He’s almost 14 years old, and soon he’s not going to want to talk to me about anything. I’ve read plenty of parenting handbooks to know there’s a good chance I’m going to be treated like his sworn enemy for a few years.   He’s …

Death to Dadbod: Third Time’s No Charm

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

I Googled, “Origin of third time’s a charm.” I needed to find the name of my enemy. Has this ever been true? Has anyone in the history of history ever ever everrrrrr found good fortune on the third attempt? I searched that too. Google’s answer, “Nah, bro.” This workout is fun. So fun that I did it three times in the last two weeks. Apparently, Pistols are my new favorite stimulus. I’m like Yosemite Sam pow-powing in the air like …

Death to Dadbod: The Long One

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

There are times in a man’s life when he needs to give up. Quitting is the best option. Sloppy Joe eating contest. Trying to make dub-step cool. Wearing only spandex during a workout. Telling friends that cats should eat vegan too. Wearing jerseys in public. Getting angry about comic book movies.   Quitting ain’t all that bad, ya know? I’ve joked several times on Death to Dadbod about quitting during a workout. I say it’s a joke because I’m being …

Death to Dadbod: Running In Place (RIP)

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

I’m so excited to workout! Oh man, it’s been one of those weeks. Baby isn’t sleeping. Kids are farting around and crying about the smell. Marriage game is strong, but it’s hard to be power lifting when your tiniest human cries 4-162 times each night. I felt like I’ve been constantly running around. And I hate running. I need the weekend. Even if the weekend just means I work all day without actually being at Work all day. Maybe I’ll …

Death to Dadbod: Sibling Rivalry

Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

They say children are the future. If that’s the case – then you’re all welcome. I’m blessed with 3 amazing children who are going to make the world a better place. They’re 3 of the most loving, kind hearted little humans I’ve ever met. Ahem, I also have a 9-week-old baby boy, but the jury is still out on him. He’s the first of the 4 to actually have my DNA, so he’s got an uphill climb. He’s already mastered …
