Brian Borg is a human resource professional with more than 17 years of experience in San Diego, California. An admirer of India pale ales or IPAs, Brian Borg enjoys sampling beer from San Diego breweries like Alpine Beer Company and Stone Brewing.
A collaboration between Steve Wagner and Greg Koch, Stone Brewing launched in 1996 and released its first beer, Stone Pale Ale, later that year. Today, the brewery operates under the core values of innovation and freshness, which led to the creation of its Enjoy By series.
The Stone Brewery's Enjoy By series is brewed with 10 different hops to maintain its freshness. It currently holds the distinction as being the fastest packaged beers to reach bars and store shelves in the US. Each uniquely-crafted beer comes with a 37-day expiration date.
The Enjoy By Black IPA has been produced since 2012, with additional variants such as Devastatingly Dank, Festively Fresh, and the recently-created Stone Enjoy By 07.04.19 Unfiltered IPA in celebration of Independence Day.
A philosophy graduate from San Diego State University, Brian Borg is a nature enthusiast. He enjoys day hikes around San Diego as well as exploring Yosemite and Grand Teton national parks. Brian Borg also goes camping at Mount Palomar.
Mount Palomar features the Palomar Mountain State Park, an area that offers hiking, fishing, camping, and wildlife-watching activities. The state park features the third highest peak in San Diego County, which extends to 6,140 feet. The park may be visited all year round, and interested campers may find the following points helpful prior to their camping plan.
Peak and Off-Peak Seasons. As for any type of bookings and reservations, peak seasons tend to have higher rates. In this case, October and the months that follow can be considered the off-peak season for Palomar Mountain, when rates can be as low as $32 per night.
Activities. Specific activities recommended for campers include hiking to and taking photographs of the Boucher Hill Summit, fishing in Doane Pond, and visiting the Palomar Observatory to see the Hale Telescope, which was the world's largest telescope from 1949 to 1992.
Convenience. A store offering camping essentials, food, drinks, medicines, and other needs, a small post office, and a restaurant called Mother’s Kitchen, are all available for the convenience and comfort of campers.
San Diego, California, resident Brian Borg maintains an active lifestyle outside of work. In addition to hiking regularly, he works out three to four times weekly. For his workouts, Brian Borg of San Diego focuses largely on weightlifting.
Increasing the amount of weight you lift, an essential component for making progress when strength training, depends on your personal experience when working out. Normally, the first few repetitions you complete seem easy while the last few are challenging. This pattern indicates that you are working with the proper weight for your current skill level. If you are unable to complete your normal amount of reps, consider lowering the amount of weight with which you are exercising. Conversely, when the last reps are easy for you, it’s time to increase your weight.
Recognizing when to change your weight amount is only part of the battle; you also need to know by how much to increase your weight. A good rule of thumb is to change your weight by five pounds for upper-body exercises and 10 pounds for lower-body exercises. However, you may find that five or 10 pounds is either not enough or too much for your body to handle. There’s nothing wrong with decreasing the increment of your weight increases to ensure you maintain your usual reps.
Further, don’t be afraid to split your workouts if you are between weight amounts. For example, you may only have access to 10-pound and 15-pound weights. While the 10-pound weights are too light, the 15-pound ones are too heavy. In this situation, use the 15-pound weights for the first few reps, then complete the set with the 10-pound weights. This still builds muscle over time, and you’ll eventually be capable of doing your entire set with the heavier weights.
