Aggghh! I'm walking funny and can't sit down from yesterday's glute workout. Just as I recover, it's leg day again. SUPERSET: 1) One Leg Squat on Smith Machine - 4 sets of 15 reps each. I started at 50 lbs and my last set was at 65 lbs. Here's a good clip for demonstration (despite this … Continue reading Day 52: Booty workout
Straight up - cardio is my enemy. I really strongly dislike it. Kinda the same way I strongly dislike paying taxes, or the way guys strongly dislike getting kicked in the balls. I prefer knocking out my cardio by doing a strenuous hike or running the Santa Monica stairs off of San Vicente. If I'm on … Continue reading Crack Juice
Every morning when I wake up at 4:45 am my first thought is: "I cannot go to the gym today. I have to come home and take a nap." Every morning. I'm able to recognize it and start laughing when these thoughts pop up - even as I go take a shower, then eat breakfast, then … Continue reading Day 31: Doing Time
Arrrghh! My new method of planning and tracking my workouts is so insanely helpful, I feel stupid for not starting this sooner. Now, it's nothing groundbreaking - by "new" I mean it's 'new to me'. I'm not reinventing the wheel. I had this problem. I would mentally psyche myself into going to the gym. I'd drink … Continue reading Day 30: Breakthrough!
First things first - if you don't get the movie reference in the above picture you need to stop whatever it is you're doing and go rent They Live. You can thank me later. Here's a quick summary from Wiki: "It follows a nameless drifter referred to as "Nada", who discovers the ruling class … Continue reading Day 28: I’m Here to Chew Bubblegum & Kick Ass
Ok, so I'm sitting here eating my 1/2 cup of plain oatmeal with 1 tablespoon of plain organic peanut butter, contemplating what's on my plate for today. Here's what I want to do: Paint my nails while watching Six Feet Under Take a nap Eat Watch another episode of Six Feet Under Clean up a … Continue reading Day 22: Taking it to the Next Level
Quick post!! Whipped this up in like 5 minutes flat. So stupid easy & healthy. I shoot for easy recipes when doing my meal prep for the week. I try to cook a lot on Sundays to eliminate some of the kitchen time during the week. This makes 4 generous servings if you're a piggy … Continue reading Day 17: Yummy Turkey Meatloaf
So, I really can't afford a personal trainer but I wanted to get some pro advice. I found a local fitness model who has competed in multiple NPC & IFBB competitions and has her Pro Card. She now solely focuses on personal training - both in person and online. I met with her on Thursday … Continue reading Day 15: Information Overload?
Today I tried something new! After reading this awesome article on 'fasted cardio' I gave it a whirl. I just can't stand cardio - the treadmill bores the shit outta me, I'm way too clumsy for the elliptical, and I can't push myself hard enough on a stationary bike. I really rather go hiking or … Continue reading Day 12: Beast Mode!
I used to be totally overwhelmed with grocery shopping & meal prep. I used to go to Whole Foods and buy a bunch of random fruit, veggies and meat and then cook sporadically throughout the week. This caused a few huge problems. First, I was spending a ridiculous amount of time cooking. Every night it … Continue reading Day 9: Meal Prep Sunday
