I met my friend Dave five years ago during our college freshman orientation week. Since then, we’ve bonded over our mutual love of movies, Batman: The Animated Series, good beer, and facial hair. As he is currently a swim coach and fitness professional, it shouldn’t come as a surprise he’s been instrumental in my attempts to live a healthy lifestyle in the time I’ve known him.
He has taught me many things about proper lifting techniques, the importance of supersets, and the dangers represented by weight machines as opposed to free weights. One of his recommendations, The New Rules of Lifting: Six Basic Moves for Maximum Muscle, by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove, had me in the best shape of my life a couple years ago. I fell off the fitness wagon a few months back and needed to climb back atop it, so I figured I’d ask Dave.
Always willing to help a friend, he recently tailored a workout plan for me, which I began today. I’m tired and sore but not suffering like I have been after several workouts in the past that did not account for my history of lower back issues. I’m ready to get back on track and bulk up for good, and he will continue to be a part of that.
As a small repayment, I would like to extend a link to his newly launched blog about fitness, friends, and whatever else comes to his mind. He knows his stuff and can help you with your own health goals.
The website should be easy to remember, as it’s just his fancy professional man name, davidjbromberg.blogspot.com. Read it, follow him on Twitter (@djbromberg), and learn to be a better, healthier person.
