Bootcamp Mafia Episode 2

So this week has started with some classics. The wounded troll said last night that I should just make him (the hated one) the trainer. I had visions of battle axes and blood spurting high. -oh just cause I was watching spartacus- not cause I would ever want to harm the special couple after a statement like that. As she walked out she caringly caressed his back. =GAG VOMIT AHHHHH

Cage fighter missed that one. She has been tending to a broken hammer toe.

The questions still remain:
who bought the f*$king dog?
Is there a new man of the week and is he an E-5 or an E-6?
So what is wrong with the serpent's tail exactly?

What ever happened to Patti? After she attended the last meditation class where Jillian somehow became mortally wounded, Patti fell off the cliff. She brought the music CD for the class. Wounded sperm whales being harpooned by pigmy japanese whalers. I couldn't play it obviously but I'll sell you the cd for a buck.

At least Terina showed up to shed a ray of sunshine on the topic. Snorting and talking of farting and such. You know- the usual.

Then the new girl asked: " do you hate me?" "Am I your worst client?" "Am I hopeless?" Holy hockey puck batman. I don't get paid enough. I should just make a smoothie bar and sit there listening to people tell me their woes while selling overpriced protein shakes.

The week is not over so I'll update if necessary. Comment and like -support the team.

Bootcamp Mafia: What was he doing in the bathroom for 20 minutes??

Special announcement: Ninja Woman, through acts of gallantry on the fields of training, has evolved and is now Titled: CAGE FIGHTER.

Within any group dynamic, there is always a mix of personalities. This mix of personalities causes a variety of events to unfold which invoke all forms of human emotion and can be humorous, happy, sad, annoying, comical and downright infuriating. In today's world, media companies such as TV and cable have capitalized on this concept and created Reality Shows of all makes and models. We have realized that within the bootcamp, this phenomenon also exists. We also have stories to tell of and share. Let the drama unfold....

The Rapid Fat Loss Bootcamp at Dempsey's Resolution Fitness is no joke. It is designed for serious people who want to get in serious shape. But it is open to all people of all fitness levels. Many come and go but the dedicated few form a tight knit cell of hardcore fitness athletes who strive to better themselves through the struggles and trials of physical culture.

Disclaimer: These stories are meant for entertainment and humor. They are based upon truths and real life events. They are not meant to offend or butt hurt anyone. No real names will be used. No malice or harm is ever directed or intended towards anyone. Just having fun. Don't like it, go away.

Approximately 3-4 months ago, during one of the great annual special deals, a mysterious man joined the group. Through his actions, he has attained the rank and title of "The Hated One". This title has been awarded several times in the past, however, it has never been such a truly deserved and earned title before. Previous holders of this title pale in comparison to the current holder of said title.

The "hated one" attended class in an irregular and haphazard manner. Quick summary of qualities that earned him his title: Always late, acting weird, annoying everyone in class, putting out minimal effort during the workouts, invading the no fly zone of most people and generally pissing everyone off with his actions and words. It didn't take long for him to earn his reputation and title as "The Hated One".

It has to be noted that to earn this title, you really have to be a class act. The bootcamp atmosphere is light and playful. Full of laughter, no stress and a haven against the crazy outside world. It is a place where you can come in and be part of a team of like minded individuals who workout very hard and try to achieve their personal goals alongside teammates in a group setting. So to be the cause of negativity in such a positive atmosphere, you have to be a TOOL.

And a TOOL, he is - this "Hated One". Tonight, he came in late and acted weird as usual, quickly annoying everyone. He was in and out, barely exerting himself for brief moments and then BAM, he disappeared into the bathroom for what seemed to be at least 20 minutes. Keeping in mind, that the class is one hour long.

What the hell was he doing in there for 20 minutes? Many have speculated as to what was going on. Maybe he was sick and not feeling well. Certain people have insinuated that he may get aroused by the presence of the bootcamp girls and that he was taking care of disgusting animal needs. GAG! No one will ever know what he was doing in the bathroom for 20 minutes. Nobody really cares. And nobody really wants to know. All we can say is WTF???

And there is speculation that the "Hated One" has relations with the "Wounded Troll". A shuddering thought.
Please comment and share your experiences. More to follow. Stay tuned for the next episode of the Bootcamp Mafia.

Your #1 Fat Burning Hormone (And How To Control It)

Great article by Joel and a great deal.


Dempsey's Resolution Fitness

By Joel Marion, CISSN

Did you know that there's ONE solitary hormone that pretty much controls EVERY other weight loss hormone in your body, and your ability to burn fat altogether?

In fact, when you have this ONE hormone on your side, fat loss truthfully couldn't get easier.

When you don't, however, losing even a single pound can become virtually impossible.

The hormone? Leptin. And here's the unfortunate news: Just about everyone is unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin each and every time they attempt to lose weight.

With that said, it's not very hard at all to see why so many people outright struggle to shed their unwanted body fat, month after month, year after year.

That's why in the next few paragraphs I'm going to explain to you exactly why and how leptin is limiting YOUR fat loss, and how 6 odd herbs—many of which you probably never heard of before—can actually solve all the problems leptin poses as you attempt to drop those unwanted pounds.


First, in order to burn fat, your body depends on these two things:

1) high levels of leptin
2) highly-sensitive leptin "receptors"

Now for the bad news…

Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced.


Because leptin's main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a huge asset to survival.

After all, body fat provides a vast supply of stored energy and warmth, both highly-valued resources when food is in short supply.

You see, when you go on a diet, your body isn't aware of your hopes for a slim, tight waistline or your desire to drop 20 lbs in time for your high school reunion or summer beach season. In fact, the only thing it does know is that your calorie intake is now below "normal"… and to your brain, that's a big red flag.

The result: reduced leptin levels and dramatically decreased fat burning.

In fact, research has shown that leptin levels drop by as much as 50% after just 7 days of dieting… that puts you at only 50% of your fat-burning potential just one WEEK in to your fat loss plan, and it only gets worse with each passing day.

And if that wasn't bad enough, with every pound you DO struggle to lose, leptin levels fall even further, making it even more difficult for you to continue to lose fat.


Because, as mentioned, in the face of calorie restriction, your body views stored body fat as an asset to survival. The more fat you lose, the more "danger" your body senses, and the harder it is to strip away that next pound.

Hello fat loss plateaus!

Now, I hate to continue to be the bearer of bad news, but the scenario I just explained is actually only HALF the problem.

The other unfortunate reality is that the vast majority of people are ALSO suffering from a condition known as "leptin resistance" due to years of high body fat levels and a diet full of processed foods.

Leptin resistance simply means that even at high levels, leptin is no longer able to properly signal fat burning to your body, dramatically decreasing it's fat loss effects. That's a pretty disheartening truth for the fat loss enthusiast, but as I alluded earlier, there IS something you can do about it.

Let me ask you this:

What if I told you there was a drop-dead simple way to keep leptin levels high as you lose weight,while also increasing your body's sensitivity to the hormone?

Is that something you might be interested in?

You see, if you could do that, you could essentially keep your body in a fat-burning state all the time… high leptin levels = high levels of fat burning… 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Can you just imagine how much MORE fat you'd burn if your body was no longer limiting your rate of fat loss on a daily basis?

A LOT more.

And here's the great news: there is indeed a drop-dead simple way to achieve exactly that, and even better, it only takes a measly 30 short seconds each day to implement.

As mentioned in the subject of this email, this "trick" involves the use of 6 odd flab-belly herbs that together have been shown to tackle leptin from both problematic angles: production and sensitivity.

Here they are:

#1. Irvingia Gabonensis, a powerful extract from the African mango that has been shown to support leptin sensitivity by inhibiting the production of C-reactive protein (CRP), a chemical in the body that has been linked with the development of leptin resistance, by up to 52%.

And check this out...

To further support this extracts dramatic effect on weight loss, in one double-blind study, 102 otherwise-healthy overweight volunteers received either 150 mg of Irvingia extract or a placebo, twice daily prior to meals, for a period of 10 weeks.

At the end of 10 weeks, the Irvingia group lost an average of 28 pounds (13.1% decrease in body weight), shed 6.7 inches from their waistline, and had reduced their total body fat by an average of18.4%!

Furthermore, it was found that those who supplemented with Irvingia experienced a 26% decrease in total cholesterol, and blood sugar levels dropped from an unhealthy fasting blood level of 85.5 to a much healthier 66.3!

As expected, those receiving the placebo experienced no measurable difference in scale weight, girth measurements, body fat percentage, or health markers

#2. Oleanolic Acid. This compound extracted from olive tree leaves has a stimulatory effect on a specific gut peptide called Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Research shows that an oral dose of this extract can increase GLP-1 by 48%, which has in turn been closely linked to increased leptin production.

#3. Modifilan®, a potent seaweed extract harvested from pristine Arctic waters off the coast of Iceland, has been shown to stimulate increased leptin production in fat cells by up to 18% through its ability to stimulate Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) in the adrenals. Stimulation of TSH in turn stimulates the production of leptin in fat cells.

#4. Panax Notoginseng, a well-known and commonly used traditional Chinese herb called "Shan Qi" by master herbalists was recently shown to also have unique metabolic properties, including naturally suppressing appetite and increasing leptin sensitivity.

#5  YerbaX™, a potent blend of a rare green tea extract and South American yerba mate extract which together have been shown to synergistically increase resting metabolic rate and mobilize fatty acids from fat cells to be burned, all while suppressing appetite and increasing energy and alertness.

Now, while you could try to locate all of the above ingredients individually, research the actual extracts of each that yield the positive leptin effects mentioned above, purchase them all separately and pay shipping on each, then sort through study after study to determine the scientific dose of those extracts, the good news is that we already did ALL of that for you at BioTrust Nutrition and put it in to one scientifically-backed, lab-tested, ultra-convenient product called LeptiBurn™.

Just take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the afternoon and let SCIENCE do the rest.

You see, LeptiBurn™ is the ONLY scientifically-backed dietary supplement created specifically to solve your body's BIGGEST fat-loss problem: your body's production of, and sensitivity to, the ONE solitary hormone that literally controls everything related to fat loss.

My Get Lean Program Winter 2012 Is Over: Now For 2013

My 5th week of my Winter 2012 Get Lean Program didn't go as planned as I had my baby princess Abby with me. The 4 yr old angel convinced Daddy that we deserved more cheat meals than planned :) So I broke down and agreed. We had a great time together. I ended up maintaining my numbers and I'm ok with that.

When you embark on a get lean program, you have to clearly identify your goals. The purpose of my get lean programs are to show the average Joe / average Jane that you can achieve and maintain a healthy body composition and performance level using my program without going to fitness competitor / bodybuilder extremes.

I could have done better and more and achieved greater results. But I would have had to put in way more time, money and energy into doing that which of course would have impacted other aspects of my life. What was my goal? I wasn't going to a fitness model photo shoot or a fitness competition.

I was simply wanting to be as lean as I could maintain while operating within my normal daily life and to start the new year off at a good place as far as performance and body composition. I succeeded in my personal goal. I raised my PR's / 1 rep maxes back to pre- shoulder injury levels without causing further damage and was able to remain as lean as I could afford to while maintaining my normal daily life.

People don't realize how much work it takes to get in real shape and to get really lean. It takes time, money, dedication and alot of constant work in the kitchen and gym. When you are overweight / out of shape, it is actually easier to make big progress. As you get in better shape and leaner, it gets harder and harder to make noticeable progress.  That's just the way it is. And your goals drive you to keep pushing to break the inevitable plateaus that naturally occur. 

So now as we begin 2013, I am in a place where I can plan and start off in a position where I'm not starting from scratch. I believe fitness is a yearlong, everyday, every year lifestyle that doesn't have social rules. Stopping before new year's day and then making some big plans to undo the deliberate lazy neglect under the guise of a new year's resolution is a ridiculous concept to me but it is the social norm. I will never agree with the norms of society. 

So when you make goals / resolutions for this year, make sure that they are progressive, retainable and contribute to a lasting lifestyle change. Use the S.M.A.R.T. concept and get the most bang for your buck as you make exercise and nutrition improvements. Starting and stopping, falling off the wagon, backsliding, are all signs that your plan wasn't well thought out and wasn't sustainable in your normal life. If you can't do it long term then you have to question it. Nothing good in life comes quick, easy or cheap.

I will embark on many more get lean adventures to keep myself in the healthiest, best shape possible. But I won't be going to any crazy extremes. Think about your goals and ask yourself what it is that you really want and really need to be healthy and fit. The cover of a magazine is not usually in that equation. What progress I have made, although not earth shattering, can be maintained year round. Keep that in mind as you plan for your goals. It's the long term that counts not the quick fix. Stay tuned and Happy New Year!
