Testimonial time!

The picture on the left is the one I took this morning the picture on the right is from 10 years ago when I was about three weeks out from my first and only figure competition.

Body weight is the same. This came up in my timeline and I wanted to share it because to get down to what you see in that picture I did 90 minutes of cardio every day. I eat to Lapierre and green beans for 14 weeks and I was 100% miserable.

I was hungry all the time I hated the experience and it was incredibly hard & I still came in last in my class.

Fast forward 10 years I’m far more muscular with a lot less cardio and a lot more food and feel like the last year to have been the best I’ve looked in my entire life, all of that is thanks to Jennie Roberts / Valkyrie Athletics.

Thank you Zee Perez!

For this weight manipulation we started out at 148.3, 5 days ago with the goal of getting her as close to 140.8 (just under). We had her eating a diet of 1800+ calories all the way into weigh ins. No saunas involved. She weighed in at 139.7 this morning (140.3 with clothes on). Another weight cut success!!!!

These Teriyaki Salmon Bowls come together quickly for a healthy and delicious weeknight meal. Bake the salmon and broccoli together, then serve in a bowl with rice, veggies and creamy avocado.

1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (use recipe below or San-J Teriyaki)

2 (4-ounce) salmon fillets

3 cups chopped broccoli florets

1/2 Tablespoon avocado or melted coconut oil

1 cup cooked white or brown rice

1 cup shredded red cabbage

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1/2 bunch green onions, chopped

1/2 avocado, quartered and sliced

1 lime, quartered

In a shallow baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce over salmon fillets and use a spoon to make sure each piece is coated. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but up to four hours. Meanwhile toss chopped broccoli with oil and a bit of sea salt.

Preheat oven to 425ºF and lightly grease a baking sheet.

Place marinated salmon fillets (skin side down) on one half of the prepared baking sheet and add broccoli to the other half.

Bake until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily and broccoli is roasted, about 15-20 minutes. Cook or reheat rice while the salmon and broccoli are baking.

Grab two bowls, add rice and top each with a fillet of salmon, cabbage, carrots, green onions, avocado, a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of remaining teriyaki sauce. Top each salmon filet with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, if using. Serve immediately.

Dream Big, Start Small, Work Hard, Stay Focused, Keep Moving Forward


Challenge your core stability with the Kettlebell Pull-Through!

One of the core’s main jobs is to stabilize the hips and spine from any unwanted movement while the limbs are in motion.

These could also be called the “anti-positions.”

Examples would be:
1. Dead Bug -> Anti-Extension - working on not arching (extending) our lower back while the arms and/or legs move

2. Suitcase Carry -> Anti-Lateral Flexion - working on not letting the torso be pulled down by holding a weight on one side

In this case, the kettlebell pull-through is mainly an anti-rotation exercise as you work hard to not let the hips and torso rotate as you pull the weight from one side to the next.

In fact, it is also an anti-extension exercise as you work on keeping a strong, straight body line, not allowing your lower back and hips to sink into extension.

You can use this exercise as both a warm-up to prime the core stabilizers for your training, or as a stand-alone exercise to really blast the core.

I prefer to train exercises like this for time, rather than reps, because as fatigue sets in, you will be tempted to speed up your reps.

Start with 2-4 sets x 30-60 seconds and let me know how you feel!

Are you ready to take your training to a level you never thought possible?

"Progress: You might not be where you want to be, but you're not where you used to be"


Do you want to keep your shoulders strong and healthy for years to come?
Utilize push/pull supersets regularly in your training!
Shoulder injuries are some of the most common injuries I see.

And it makes sense, the shoulder is a highly complex joint with a ton of freedom to move, but relatively little in the way of stability.
Add on to that poor daily posture and unbalanced training, and you can see why we have a recipe for injury.
For many people that I train, we can combat this by improving 2 things:
1. Better control of the shoulder blades by using full retraction/protraction in exercises like push-ups and inverted rows.
2. Balance out the training by giving them MUCH more upper back and rear delt work.
A great superset that hits these 2 areas is the Suspension Push-up and Suspension Inverted Row.
These 2 exercises provide a high bang for your training buck:
1. Better shoulder blade control
2. Total body stability
3. Easier on the joints
4. Provide balance between push/pull
5. High reps are great for conditioning work
Utilize this superset on your next upper body day and let us know what you think!

Thank you Luke!! 💪 @nowland_performance

You've gotta try this foodgasmic dish we whipped up tonight!
We used 1 organic spaghetti squash delivered straight from @farmfreshtoyou plus 1 package of grassfed ground bison and half a jar of vodka sauce.
Bake the spaghetti squash on 460 NOT from a preheated oven. Put it in after you've cut it in half and scooped out the seeds, and then start the oven. You can dress it up beforehand however you like. In this case, we brushed the inside with avocado oil, sprinkled with salt and cut fresh sprigs of rosemary right from our yard and stuffed them inside. Depending on how large your squash is could take anywhere from 30-50 minutes.
Cook the bison and mix in the sauce then set aside.
Then when the squash comes out, place in a fancy dish and stuff the top with your bison mixture and VOILA!
Remember to tag us in any masterpieces we've inspired you to create.
