Slowed it down today with some mobility and stretching moves.

Apologies this isn't quite 5 minutes, the timer froze so I did the best I could. I realized at the end when I finished that I lost 10 seconds in there somewhere, but it's 2 rounds of 5 exercises for 30 seconds each with no rest.

Always go at your pace. And modify as needed.

Did you like it? Too hard? Too easy? What types of exercises would you like to see? Back? Arms? Booty? Let me know and let's Just Move Together!

03/06/2019

My first post. I will be posting 5 minute workouts daily at 5 AM and 5 PM (EST) Mornings will focus more on total body movement and cardio to get you moving and the evening session will be core focused.

Hope you enjoy! Please give ALL feedback. Sound? Visual? Lighting? Talk too fast, too much? Should I show alternate moves like I did?

First time doing a class without an actual class and filming it in it's entirety. How'd I do? ...oh and this was just something I was familiar with, a basic tabata so only 4 minutes. Promise 5 minutes this eve!

Thank you🙏

If you're trying to lose weight or lose fat, don't ruin your caloric deficit by rewarding yourself with food.

Plan those reward snacks into your day by cutting out calories elsewhere. Make them part of your diet instead of adding them to it. You work too hard in the gym to ruin it by adding calories to your diet. Stay focused on your goals during the 23 hours outside the gym.

Burpees on a cliff at the Grand Canyon? Sure, I wasn't gonna pass this up.

Would've preferred a rock that wasn't in pieces, but it worked for the moment.

Booneville Salt Flats Speedway

Stretching my legs out a bit after nearly a week of driving across the country. Been a great experience, no time schedule, just driving from National Park to National Park.

I recommend everyone drive some great distance instead of flying everywhere. You miss so much flying over so many states. The journey and the destinations have been equally amazing.

BURNING FAT VS LOSING FAT

Burning fat is merely using fat as your fuel source for energy. Losing fat requires a caloric deficit. If you burn fat, but do not maintain a caloric deficit, you will not lose fat.

Kept it simple, any questions? Please ask...

Do you strength train?

Here's a few of the many, many benefits of strength training. If you're not using weights, heavy weights (relative to your own strength) then you're basically wasting time in the gym.

Grab weights. Move them fast, move them slow, just f**king move them.

Many people are concerned with changing their workouts too often. Whether they fear hitting a plateau or they've heard it's good to keep their muscles confused, too much change, in the case of training, is not good.

Although muscle and nervous system confusion is great, too much change, too often can be detrimental to your training.

If you're constantly changing exercises, you do not give your body adequate time to begin to adapt to what you're doing.

The key is to introduce new stimuli (exercises) and then repeat them for a few weeks before progressing to the next. This allows the body to master those movements before moving on to the next.

Elite lifters and athletes may change more often as their nervous systems are advanced and have seen nearly all exercises at some point in their training so their adaptations happen much faster, but for 98% of the population, a 2-4 week periodization would be best.

My last week back home at my parents farm. My last week to enjoy some amazing and fresh, home cooked food.

Beef Liver
Mashed Potatoes
Hamburger Gravy
Peas
Corn

Sooo good. All 100% organic veggies, organic and grass fed meats from start to finish on my parents farm. Mashed potatoes made with fresh goat's milk also from farm. None of that "organic" crap you buy in stores that just follows government guidelines. Also, organ meats are extremely nutritious, just don't think about what you're eating lol.

It doesn't get any better than this. I'm gonna miss this, but also lose about 15 lbs without mom's ( @mapleshadefarms ) amazing cooking.

It's Hump Day!

I feel like I'm finally over the hump with some nagging Golfer's Elbow (elbow tendonitis.) It's taken nearly a month of no weights, some rehab, alot of rest and patience.

Started back with weights this week, light and easy, but it feels good.

We will always have setbacks, be patient, have a plan, and always be moving forward no matter the pace.

IS RAPID FAT LOSS A SMART GOAL?

Would you prefer to lose 20 pounds in 4 months and then gain it back by the end of the year or lose 20 pounds by the end of the year and keep it off?

Reaching your goal weight or percent body fat is not the end point, maintaining that goal is.

Be patient, set realistic goals 1lb a week, 2lbs a month, etc. Stay focused and committed. Always be making progress no matter how slow, just keep moving forward.

Any questions? Ask below and I'll be glad to answere them.

Are you looking for a coach to help you lose body fat, lean up, and look great naked, then send me a DM regarding my proven system that I’ve used with many clients to help them become leaner, stronger, healthier, and more confident.

First off, water is always best, but if you need something sweet to drink take the following into consideration.

Liquid calories, no matter how nutrient rich they are , DO NOT provide satiety. Chances are energy dense liquids (high calorie) are a huge cause for your weight struggles. A simple switch to zero calorie liquids or whole foods would make a HUGE impact on your weight.

Unlike consuming foods, high calorie liquids provide very little satiety therefore allowing you to consume either more of those liquids or food in addition to these high calorie beverages. These additional calories can easily lead to weight gain.

Studies show that switching to 0 calorie beverages leads to less calories consumed causing participants to lose weight. Low calorie or no calorie beverages are a much better choice for weight management and weight loss.

As I said initially, water is the best option for hydrayion. And then get your nutrients from whole foods. Look at the sugar in the @nakedjuice 👀 combined with very little fiber and no satiety. Eating the real whole veggies 🥔🥕 or fruits🍎🍌 would be much more filling, you'd consume less, but with more nutrients and less sugar.

If you're going to have @pepsi don't be afraid to go with Pepsi Zero or Diet, both are a better option when managing or losing weight. They're not bad or gonna kill you with chemicals, just don't drink 20 a day!

Basically, don't drink your calories, eat them!
