2 cups 2% milk
1 egg
1 cup flax meal
7tbsp raw peanut butter
1 banana
Handful spinach
2 scoops whey protein
Makes ~ 24oz
EAT SLOWLY OR RISK THROWING UP :) if you're into counting calories, though it is not an appropriate measure of nutrition or health it's over 2223 kcals packed with delicious fat and protein. It is more macro nutrient rich than most people's bodies require in a day but for athletic populations, it's most of what you need daily minus carbs. 130g protein total, 90g fat.


Kung fu training opens up a world of complex new movement patterns that can be a fun addition to western fitness programs. Mixing sweeping combinations into pushups or squats can get the heart pumping and work the body more holistically in a given movement combination.

Shoulder conditioning. Gyms rely on people's fascination with weights to stay open. Thousands of facilities full of people biceps curling, shoulder pressing, bench pressing, leg pressing. Countless machines designed to do what you can do on your own with your own body weight. Explore movement and strength with bodyweight exercises as a road to ability and personal empowerment.

Studies in exercise physiology suggest that by drinking or swishing with carbohydrate infused water the body is able to sustain prolonged bouts of exercise without fatigue. Guarding against a placebo effect, subjects were given water with maltodextrin, a tasteless carbohydrate and all performed better above baseline tests on endurance performance. Even when told to just swish and spit subjects performed better, hinting at the body's ability to sense carbohydrate ingestion in the mouth.


Back walk overs are a fun way to develop strong and mobile shoulders and a flexible spine. Walking up a wall or in this case stall bars makes learning them way easier. www.ritual-fitness.com www.eagleclawLA.com

Movements have meaning. As Chip Conrad @bodytribe says 'lift with your head'. Make your movements mean something- what is that weight to you? A dumbbell? A sandbag? Today's exercise was in putting emotions in the movement. Pushing, or throwing, can be giving, sharing - it can be refusing, rejecting, asserting. I always say Your workout is the hardest part of your day, if it's not, you aren't doing it right. Conquer your demons, celebrate your success, all through movement.

Better Burpees, from Fun to Funner, the Best Burpee Video Ever 08/02/2014

Better Burpees, from Fun to Funner, the Best Burpee Video Ever


Here's a throwback video from a few years ago on Burpees.



Short video on Windmills and Mills done with a Leverage Club also known as a n Indian Club. This is a home made plate loaded club that weighs around 20lbs and its super top heavy - which makes it a great wrist and grip strength developer. This combo works on its own with lighter weight to warm up the shoulder and torsoe, or mid workout as part of a larger combination with ninja chops or Jori Swings. Consult a trained swinger before practicing these movements.
