We recently  migrated the site to an entirely new server and are ready to launch some incredibly exciting stuff!  

We want to especially thank Jason Greene aka  “DJ GREENIE” from Denver for all of our IT Infrastructure and Support.    We also owe a BIG THANKS to Keith Capobianco of KJC Designz Las Vegas for The Muscle Couple logo and site layout.  Keith has been tweaking the Masthead and Header for the last couple of weeks and it LOOKS AMAZING NOW!

Both of them have been instrumental in taking this Blog to where it stands currently.  We couldn’t continue without them.

If any of you are looking for a WEB ARCHITECT and or DESIGNER, please get in touch with us.  Both of these guys are as good as it gets. We’ll have much more on these two SUPERSTARS in a future blog.

Enjoy your Holiday Weekends!

“MIHWCS”-What Does It Mean?

Hey Everybody!   Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend wherever you may be.

It’s a beautiful day in So Cal and The Muscle Couple is about to “drop the top” and drive The Muscle B around town.  

We wanted to drop a quick explanation of what the Acronym we post at the end of every blog means.

“MIHWCS”

One of our favorite Dr Dre rap songs from The 1992 Chronic Album “Stranded on Death Row” has some great rap lyrics.  Lyrics that have made a lasting impression and influenced us even to this day.(paraphrasing the profanity out)

There are three types of people in this world”

“Those that don’t know what happened”

“Those that wonder what happened”

PEOPLE like us THAT MAKE THINGS HAPPEN”

When Anh and I formed our Myspace Page(2003) we wanted to come up with a catchy slogan emphasizing our “So Cal lifestyle” along with being motivated to get things done.  

Hence…. “Making It Happen-West Coast Style”

We hope you’ve been enjoying our articles.    We  have a slew of new ones on the way.  Be on the lookout for our new site redesign soon.  Here are a couple of training pics from this week.

The Muscle B is Mobile!

And the Malls of American need to be vigilant.   Because she is a comin!

And if she comes bobbin down the hallway, you better watch out.  All of that Muscle Milk has made her as solid as an oak tree.   When she careens off your kneecaps, you will feel it for a day or so.

BLAM!!!!

Anyways, a long work day for the Male half of The Muscle Couple.  And the Female half travelled to Houston so her parents could show off the Muscle B to their neighbors.  Tuan and Truc Nguyen are very proud of their Grand Daughter. And that makes Mommy and Daddy proud too!  The Muscle B really rubs off on people in a positive way.  For that we are thankful.

Even today on a crowded Southwest Jet, she was tapping people on the leg as they made it down the middle walk way trying to get to their seats.  She would then say “HI” and when they smiled she would quickly retort “BYE” as she turned away and focused her attention on the next unsuspecting passenger.    What a BUSCUIT!

Here is a recent video of her rocking her new YELLOW KICKS thru the Beverly Center.

We are working on a wicked new logo that should be ready within the next couple of days.  We are also in the final stages of redesigning the site and are very thankful for our growing readership.

We continue to be amazed at the reception of our site and feel blessed to have so many people reading and following along.  We ask that you continue to discuss and refer it to your friends and social networks.  And please don’t hesitate to stop in and leave a comment or request for specific content you’d like to see.  No idea will be rejected.

Until tomorrow!

Some Pics from the Last 3 Months

Another beautiful Sunday in So Cal!

We’ve dropped a lot of good stuff on the blog the past couple of weeks.  It’s worth a looksy into the archives if you haven’t been following along.

Here are some pics of our training from the last couple of months.

Lot’s more coming soon from us.  We’re having the blog redesigned and also having our logo re-worked.

Stay Tuned!

Rope Pulls-An Awesome Finishing Movement

Hey Everybody!

Long workday for The Muscle Couple.  Anh’s mother returned home to Houston today after being with us for the last 18 days.  We’ll miss her tremendously and so will the Muscle B.  She is such a great Grandma and an even better chef.  We’ll be eating authentic Vietnamese food for months as she saturated our freezer with “bomb dishes”.  Many thanks to her and safe travels back.

I wanted to quickly point out a new exercise we encountered over the weekend at Gold’s Venice.  I’ve attached a video and and a pic of Anh performing the exercise.  I don’t think many commercial gyms in the world have access to this machine, but if yours does, I would recommend it highly as a great “finishing exercise” for any workout.

You can set the timer and perform reps until the time runs out or you can start with long full ROM(Range of Motion)pulls with each arm raised as high as possible and then pulled down “elbow to the thigh” emphasizing your lats at the prime mover in executing the movement.  As you get towards the last 20 seconds of your set time, shorten the pull ROM and grab and pull more frequently, keeping your arms and shoulders closer together as I demonstrate in the video.

Doing it this way dramatically increases the resistance of the machine and offers more of a lactic acid burn and cardio workout(as evidenced by my facial expressions toward the end of the lift).  🙂

This is a real bear and I can only imagine the benefit this movement will provide to your upper torso and cardio endurance over time.

Notice her technique of fully extended arm to pull down elbow to thigh

Perform three sets of this exercise at the end of your workout a couple of times a month and you will get a tremendous final kcal burn to end your session.

The Muscle Couple on a Sunny So Cal Sunday

Not much time to write today as we are spending the day outdoors.  Anh’s Mom is leaving us on Tuesday early and we are enjoying an absolutely spectacular day of fun and Sun in So Cal.

And people wonder why so many people love California? (BTW…if you live in So Cal and you don’t have a convertible, you’re missing out)

Here are some shots from the three of us taken in the last 3 days.   Our favorite ones.   Who do you think the Muscle B is starting look like more?

Enjoy the rest of your weekends!

Special Note and Congratulations to Mike and Nair Cernovich who are leaving us and moving to “NO CAL”.  Nair just become the lead patent counsel for FACEBOOK!!!!! This is an amazing accomplishment and we are so proud of her.

Selfishly we’ll miss them, but this was an offer they couldn’t refuse.  And they’ll be retired living down here in 4 years once/if FACEBOOK goes public.   They’ll be back soon enough.  Have fun guys and soak in the rain and wind of NO CAL!  😉
