Body Sculpting – Part 7

Super Sets and Compound Sets.

I look at these types of workouts two different ways. Just to do something different or sometimes just to get in and out fast.

Supersets are two exercises for the same body part, one right after the other; quick. A back workout example would be – front pulldowns and back pulldowns. You do one set of front immediately followed by the set of back. Then rest a few seconds and then on to set two – front then back then rest and again totaling three sets. Increasing the weight with each set.

Here is a chest workout example – dumbbell press and flys. You can do all one exercise followed by the next exercise then rest or you can do a rep of one, then a rep of the other and back and forth and so on. To be more specific; you do one press then in the up position turn that into a fly and back down to a press position, etc…

Another good superset would be for legs. This may be a bit tougher and have you breathing harder, but do a set of leg extensions, followed immediately by a set of squats; or to make it a bit easier a set of dumbbell lunges.

As you can see the variety is endless.

With compound sets you are doing two different body parts. You can put chest and triceps together or back and shoulders or legs and abs. These are just examples.

Another form is complex compound sets, which combine three exercises in a row for the same body part. So when working out, you will never get in a rut. Your workouts should be fun and not a chore. It keeps the muscles continuing to take shape. So you have the ability to sculpt the physique you want; whether toned or hardcore.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009


For the month of September I will be showing what I call DISK ART.

The funny thing about this art is that I really never cared too much about abstract art, but all of a sudden I found myself just having fun with colors, different paints and techniques. So inturn the art is abstract. The disks that I use are CD’s and DVD’s that I recycle. They are one’s that were bad or have gone bad, scratched, etc. Now they have a new life in Fun Art.

My DISK ART show can be seen in the room that you can lounge around in, at the
Dandelion Communitea Café

Body Sculpting – Part 6

Super Slow

I use the super slow technique in between sets. Some sets I only do all super slow and sometimes the very last set or even the very last rep. It all depends on my mood and how I want to work a particular muscle.

That also goes for what body parts work best doing super slow. Now you can say all the body parts can be done super slow, but I only like to do certain ones.

Arms is an easy choice on most exercise’s for biceps, triceps and forearms. Chest, I would do only the last few reps super slow with dumbbell presses and even fly’s. Both at a light weight. Barbell presses would be OK to do if you have a spotter. Since I workout by myself, I am limited on super slow. Having a spotter would be helpful to finish off that last rep or two.

Back exercise’s, like pulldowns would be slow on the second half of the rep. Pulling down would be at a normal speed and a slow up and stretch.

I like doing only doing leg extensions super slow, especially the last rep or two. You end up with a nice burn. I usually do the first 8 to 10 reps at a normal speed and the last 2 reps Very Slow. Same goes for leg curls. All the reps for calf raises are done at a super slow speed. Once again a really nice burn.

So I go by feel when I work out. If I want that extra ooomff to the muscle, I put in a super slow set.

Your muscles will wake up.

Body Sculpting – Part 5

What exercise’s should you be doing?

Well, I know what I like. I do have my favorite exercise’s and unfortunately you still need to do the ones not so fond of.

I love to make training fun. I mix up the routine and these are several ways that I keep it fresh.

1. Light Weights
2. Super Sets
3. Heavy Weights
4. Super Slow
5. Combination Sets

As I have mentioned in part 4, I have been breaking my body into two body parts over a three day workout. I begin with arms and shoulders. My routine looked like this.

Lateral Raises –
Set 1 – 3lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 5lbs. – 12 reps

Sitting Shoulder Press
Set 1 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 10lbs. – 10 reps

Standing Bicep Dumbbell Curls
Set 1 – 5lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 10lbs. – 10 reps

Standing Cable Bicep Curls
Set 1 – 20lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 20lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 30lbs. – 10 reps

Triceps Presses
Set 1 – 30lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 40lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 40lbs. – 12 reps

Overhead Dumbbell Triceps extensions
Set 1 – 3lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 5lbs. – 12 reps

This workout was around 30 minutes. To get a great workout, you don’t have to be in the gym for hours. A few minutes, is plenty. It’s the quality not the quantity.

Chest and Abs –
Chest happens to be one of my favorite body parts to work.
I start off with Dumbbell Presses:
Set 1 – 5lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 10lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 10lbs. – 12 reps

Dumbbell Fly’s:
Set 1 – 5lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 10lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 10lbs. – 12 reps

Dumbbell Pullovers:
Set 1 – 10lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 10lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 15lbs. – 10 reps

Finish off with 3 sets, 15 reps of crunches for the Abs.

The third day is Legs and Back.
Back is another favorite, though I don’t really care for legs. Maybe, because it is one of the largest body parts and there is more teeth grinding and grunting as I push my way through.
I begin with Back.
Front Pulldowns:
Set 1 – 30lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 40lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 50lbs. – 12 reps

Pulldowns behind the neck:
Set 1 – 40lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 40lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 50lbs. – 12 reps

I like to stretch my back out between sets. Then finish with
Dumbbell Rows:
Set 1 – 15lbs. – 12 reps
Set 2 – 20lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 20lbs. – 10 reps

Leg Extensions (Machine):
Set 1 – 10lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 20lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 20lbs. – 12 reps

Lying Leg Curls (Machine):
Set 1 – 20lbs. – 15 reps
Set 2 – 30lbs. – 12 reps
Set 3 - 30lbs. – 10 reps

10lb. Dumbbell Squats – 3 sets of 12 reps

Finish off with 3 sets, 15 reps of body-weight calf raises.

As you can see the weights I have been using were very light.
As the weeks and workouts continue the weight will get heavier. But, always start any workout with lightweights, no matter how strong you get. This is your warm-up.

I hope I have been inspiring you to get back into the gym. You will thank me.

Too Young Too Soon

It’s bitter sweet to see so many friends you haven’t seen in a long time at a service for another friend who we will miss deeply. Mark Priest’s day was filled with music, skits, love, laughter and tears. As was his life.

It has also been a long time since I got one of his famous bear hugs, though I did the same right back. Which followed by big smiles. And, I smiled every time I thought of Mark.

Back in 1997, I was working for a production company, which I created the mock ups for key art. I was working on a poster for a television show that was in the stages of being developed and I asked several actor friends of mine, if they would let me photograph them for a design I had in mind. One of those friends was Mark. In my layout of the design, his photo was right in the center. The name of that show was called ANGEL FORCE.

That show never did see light, but now Mark’s center spotlight has spread wider with his Angel Wings that he now wears.

Over the past four years I have been to more services for friends and family who have left us way too soon and too young. Fifty was not my favorite number, but for Mark who never even got that chance to see it and celebrate it….. I am now making a decision to no longer complain about getting older. Yes there are always regrets about stuff you did or didn’t do, but that is life. And whether you think it’s too late, well, think again. My goal is to reach 150. This is my birthday month, and since the number doesn’t change for a couple of weeks, I can say I have 100 years to go.

With photos, video, words and a great memory; friend’s and family (My DAD, Mark, John, Craig, Holly, Mike, Robert) who have left us way tooooo soon, will never be forgotten.

Whatever you believe in, know that life is precious. Enjoy every minute, for yourself or with those you love. And for everyone who misses someone who no longer is here in body, your memory keeps them alive. And look…..

Body Sculpting – Part 4

Lets recap what I have done so far. I started working out again 3 weeks ago. After a very long time of not stepping foot into my gym; I made a decision to get back into it and that has been the best move I have made. I sleep better and wake up refreshed. Many of the creeks have gone away.

Back in 1993 I was in a car accident (I was rear ended) and left me with a herniated disk. Neck surgery fixed me back up, but for years I woke up with a bit of a stiff neck. But, since I have gotten back into the gym that stiff neck is no more.

The first week began with a full body workout – using very light weights; 2 sets of 12 – 15 reps. One exercise per body part. Then moving onto week two, I split my body up to two sections each. Arms and shoulders, chest and abs, back and legs. This schedule will be for two weeks; with 2 – 3 exercises per body part, 10 –12 reps, 3 sets each.

In my last post I mentioned that I worked out with free weights. I feel using a variety of dumbbells, barbells and certain free weight machines gives your muscles an overall better workout. Mix up your exercises with every session. Not only will you never be bored, you will find that your muscles will have better response.

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Body Sculpting – Part 3

As I sculpt my physique, I do it with free weights. With free weights you have the option of getting a more detailed workout.

The muscle has four sides, so when lifting the weight you can do so by changing the angle. That gives you the control of working out a desired side. When you are locked into a machine, you don’t always have that option to change the angle.

You should always remember your workout's should never be the same. The only thing that stays the same is the body parts you work on. But, the exercises should be different. And the major reason for this is that you muscle remembers. If you do the same routine each time, the first two to three sessions your muscle will respond. Then after that, the muscle will say boring and not respond. If you do the same routine for way too long, the muscle can do the opposite and atrophy instead of build. So mix it up and it will wake up those fibers to create new ones. For a more detailed you.

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Body Sculpting – Part 2

We now go from full body workouts to breaking down parts into three sections.

My first workout will be arms and shoulders. Next back and legs, then day three with chest and abs. Each section will be two exercises per body part. Starting with light weight and gradually increasing; ten to twelve reps, three sets each.

When I workout or train others, I never pre-stretch any muscle. The reason for this is your muscle is like a rubberband, if you over stretch it and then add weight it can break. So, warm up with light weights first.

Now you can get your heart rate up a bit with a ten minute aerobic exercise. I recommend to bike and after the workout or cool down with a walk.

Part 3 in a few days.... If you have any questions please comment or you can find me on Facebook.

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Body Sculpting – Part 1

I finally made a decision to fall out of bed and into my gym, that I have neglected to utilize in a very long time. What is great to know is that muscle has a memory.

I competed back in the 1980’s up to the early 1990’s. Having put on size that got me to national competitions, then over the years of not pumping iron, I still have some muscle, just very lean. I said for years that I needed to get back into the gym and put my size back on.

As I just mentioned; muscle has a memory and within two weeks of working out – that size is slowly showing back up. Not only do I feel great, I am now looking forward to my workouts.

To give you a small snip of what I do and since I used to work out, my body will get back into it pretty quickly. With any start, you need to gradually build into it.

The first two weeks consisted of a full body workout. Doing one exercise per body part. Light weights, high repetitions. Anywhere from twelve to fifteen reps, three sets each. Working out every other day and gradually increasing the weight.

The best feeling is getting that burn and the soreness of the muscles that night or next day. The reason for this, is that when you workout you are tearing down the muscle and when you are
recuperating, you are rebuilding muscle.

As an artist, I consider my body ART and I am sculpting the physique. Anyone can be an artist and begin to sculpt.

SFA Miss Saigon 2009

As I had mentioned before, this was my eleventh season with Summer Fine Arts (SFA) as the Set Designer. And once again the kids just amaze me. You could have just closed your eyes and you would think your listening to a Broadway production. Then open your eyes and see an amazing set. I may have designed the show utilizing several references from Broadway to some college productions, mixed in with my own ideas. But; the kids did execute the building and painting, with myself and the other teachers instructing them on what to do. Every part of this wonderful production with the exception of the conductor and musical director’s are performed by the teens; that list includes, cast, stagemanagers, stagehands, rigging, lighting, sound, and orchestra.

Major props goes to the incredible and many costumes created, picked, designed by Sharon Clark. This was Sharon’s third year with SFA and it was up to her to costume over 100 kids with several costumes each. She had several parents and teens working hard up to and through the production.

One of the biggest surprises was our helicopter. A very memorable scene that doesn’t last very long, and yes it was a real helicopter. Thanks to our military, this was one that had seen several tours and was now going to be used as a instructional tool for schools.

I want to thank all the kids for a fantastic production.
I also want to thank the other Staff Instructor’s:
Director – Kevin Buck
Musical Director – Michael Coppola
Technical Director – Steve Rossi
Orchestra Director – Wayne Bresette
Rehearsal Accompanist – Jeanie Black
Production Business Manager – Jeri Laufenberg
Choreographer – Kristin Fernandez
Costumes – Sharon Clark
Chief Engineer – Steve Clark
Assistant Technical Director – Josh Henn
Master Carpenter – Josh Huss

Amazing High School Kids

This is my eleventh season with Summer Fine Arts (SFA).
And with each year the kids just amaze me. Teens ranging from 14 to 18 years go full steam for five weeks, rehearsing, building, painting to bring a full scale musical to life.

I am the set designer/teacher for this program. After I collaborate with the Director and the Tech Director on how to design the show, then the kids are shown how to paint the set that is also being built by the kids.

The amount of teens that come to SFA can range from 90 to 140. This year we have 120; 30 are tech and the rest are cast. The tech consists of set building, set painting, costumes, assistants to the director, musical director and choreographer.

I'm in charge of overseeing the painting of the set. I teach them different techniques of scenic, depending on what show we are doing. Each show is unique. Some more stylized to some more realistic.

Here are the list of the shows in order, I have designed for SFA
Annie Get Your Gun
Pajama Game
Crazy For You
42nd Street
Children of Eden
Music Man
How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying
Beauty and the Beast
Thoroughly Modern Millie
Les Miserables

This year we take on Miss Saigon.

Art Stroll – A Clear Night

It was a bit of touch and go for a bit, while the sky turned grey, and the rain came down. Then as the time got closer to the First Friday Art Stroll in Ivanhoe Village, the sun began to peek through and my wishes were answered. The ground dried up and it was a beautiful warm sunny late afternoon for the art stroll. I sold some art and that put a big smile on my face. Barb, the owner of the shop; Oldies but Goodies told me I was the first artist that she had for this event who sold some art. That even put a bigger smile on my face. So if you missed coming by, you can check out my Etsy Shop on the web. Go by time to time, see what new art I have added. You will find a variety of art from original oil paintings, digital art, recycled DVD and CD’s turned into disk art, jewelry, and prints.

This one is called “A Great Change” materials used on the disks were muslin, acrylics, crackling varnishes and oil paints.

A Show called Graphic Content

I am a bit behind on posting where I have been and what I am up too…. Then again it’s never too late to talk about past shows and on-going shows. Last weekend (Apr. 24, 2009) I got a chance to stop by a show at a friends bar called Little Fish Huge Pond. It’s a fun spot with a very funky interior. Along with some of the unusual wall hangings, there is lots of art everywhere. That includes the bathrooms. I even have a few pieces of art for sale and when I stopped by, it was nice when Moire handed me some money for art sold.
(The art in black mat is one of mine)

Back to the show that features new and emerging artists along with some of the curators work (Liz Watkins). GRAPHIC CONTENT an art show: Features Craig Beverly, Adrienne Lee, Roger Datt, and Sonia Boodhram. Here are a few pixs...

The one who is painting; calls himself Lunchbox...
More pixs can be found on my facebook site.

Theatre Backdrop

A few posts back, you got to see the eleven seven foot high airbrushed portraits I produced in six days. I’m tired just remembering it. Last weekend I got to see the final finished backdrop for the production “The Secret Garden” at Merritt Island High School.

The backdrop was actually the interior of the mansion. Each portrait beautifly framed. The portraits were airbrushed onto a sharktooth scrim. This type of scrim is opaque when lit from the front and becomes transparent when lit from the back. With this effect you then got to see the actors who portrayed their ghosts. The effect was brilliant.
