Charity WOD to End Veteran Suicide Completed




Shots from today's workout. 
22 exercises for 22 reps. That was a tough one, especially due to the heat and humidity. 

Scheduling a workout at noon in August wasn't the brightest move but it got done none the less.

It was a mental test as the sweating and electrolyte loss was heavy and quick, resulting in rapid fatigue and cramping. 

I kept myself going with an old army trick. Salt and sugar mixed in with my BCAAs and glutamine drink. 

We used to make field expedient electrolyte drinks with the MRE ration salt, sugar and kool aid packets. Crude but effective. 

I will be sore tomorrow. But it was good to push myself. Haven't gone that hard in awhile. 

Results happen outside your comfort zone. Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

Another Friday Night at my Favorite Bar


Another Friday night, hanging out at my favorite bar. 

Hit a warmup set with 225 x 10 using the awesome #slingshot. 

No shoulder pain and I felt like I had several more reps. Can't beat that. 

You can have the clubs and alcohol. Those days (years) are over for me. 

I just want my iron therapy and some good food.

Supplement Review: BPI Best Aminos


Just finished a trial run on BPI Sports Best Aminos BCAAs & glutamine formula. 

I never tried it before. After about a month of using it, I give it a thumbs up! 

Here is why: 1. stamina, energy and endurance was sustained while using this product throughout the workout each day.

2. Recovery- I did some pretty good workouts even on the days when I wasn't feeling it and I really haven't been fatigued or sore and normally I would be very much so. Very impressed with that part. 

3. It tastes good and mixes easy with cold water. Those are a must for a good supplement. Helps that the stuff works too. 😀

4. It isn't that expensive compared to some of the cool guy brands that basically have the same stuff but a different label. 

So overall it works for me and I like it. I will test more brands as I can. This one gets a green light.

If you want to try it out and save a few bucks, pick it up on my Trainer's Edge page and use the coupon code save5 for a 5% discount through my page.

Fat loss vs Weight loss


Another exciting Friday night hitting the books for the ISSA certified fitness trainer course.

Tonight's topic was body fat assessments and lean body mass vs fat mass. 

So many people still use the nonsense of the scale to determine progress. 

People lose 10lbs and high five themselves when most if not all of the 10lbs came from lean body mass. All the fat is still there usually. 

That's why I have always taught fat loss vs weight loss. Losing 10lbs is not an achievement. Losing 10% of body fat is a huge achievement- big difference. 

My quest to educate the people on health & fitness continues.

Ditch the soda! If you are trying to lose weight and get healthy, try this. 

Lemon and ginger infused water. 
Easy to prepare and super good for you!

Full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, lemon and ginger have fat burning and metabolism boosting properties. 

I know when I drink a cold glass of this infused water with some stevia, it tastes great and gives me an energy boost equal to coffee. 

Give it a try and see what it can do for you.

Never let Monday win!


Monday was defeated again! It was a close fight as I was not feeling it at all. 

But I slammed my pre-workout and then hit BCAAs throughout the workout. That really helps not only with energy but to spare lean body mass loss during the workout. 

I was able to pull off a decent kettlebell rack and goblet box squat workout. 

The beauty of kettlebells is that not only did the glutes and hamstrings get worked good, but my upper body and core got worked from just stabilizing and holding the kettlebells.

Never let Monday win! You gotta be mentally strong as well as physically.
