A sample of my own Workouts…

I’ve had a few people ask about my own personal workouts lately. So today I filmed exactly what I did WHILE I was in the middle of it. I’m only showing this to illustrate an example of an effective, yet simple workout for an intermediate/advanced trainee. This entire workout took 30minutes and was completed during an hour break I had this morning, which gave me enough time to exercise+shower+eat. It’s nothing too fancy. I am only showing ONE rep examples of each exercise. Yes, I did more reps and sets. Yes, I did rest between most sets. I normally do only 2-3 sets for any exercise. I typically do 5-10 reps on most of my exercises, which is exactly what I did today. Some days I do more, some days I do less. I rest between sets long enough to feel like I’m in control before starting the next set or exercise (and not the other way around). Being too out of breath or to hurried begs for mistakes and injuries. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Today I supersetted Kettlebell Swings with Goblet Squats and Single Leg Deadlifts + Pull-ups w 1-arm holds and Upside Down Rows. On the next (last) round, I supersetted Dips + Handstand 1-arm Stability Holds. Yes, I even had some Cajun music 🎶 on for company. Do things YOU enjoy and understand. Have a reason for everything you do or don’t do. Don’t just do stuff because it’s popular or someone else is doing it. Nothing you to needs to be complicated. In fact, purposely keep things simple. Don’t do things you absolutely hate or dread either. Because how long do you think you’ll keep that up?! With that said, don’t skip the things you NEED to do to be better. Most importantly, whatever you do, just make sure it’s repeatable. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox #carltonsmixtapegumbo #carltonmusicatx

Seek Balance with Nutrition

We are what we eat. We are also what we think and do. When it comes to nutrition, very few subjects arouse more confusion, conflict and controversy. It would seem that none of us can eat anything anymore because everything is “bad” for us. Many of us already have terrible relationships with food. Many of us don’t cook either and if so, very seldom. Of course, the reasons are complex. All I know is that the last thing we need is more negative talk about food. I look around some days and all I see is a new era of EXTREMELY picky eating. It’s a privilege to have any food to eat and being too picky about it all the time is not good for survival. Food is not to be feared. Food is not the enemy. It’s ok to make healthier choices but it’s important that it always be accompanied by a healthy relationship with food. Most us already know that we should limit fast food, fried food, overly-processed food, sugary and salty snacks but we ignore it anyway. We are also well aware that we should be eating more vegetables and fruits but we ignore all that too. So no, I’m not a fan of DIETS. I’m a fan of nutrition education. I’m a fan of trying something out for a while to see how it works. My recommendation is for you to do the same. My preferred nutrition source is PRECISION NUTRITION (website). I’ve also grown to respect the work of Dr. Michael Gregor, who has a great book called HOW NOT TO DIE and a great website, NUTRITION FACTS (website). Yes, I still eat meat, pizza, chips, cookies, and fried food. But i also eat a ton of plants most of the time and you should too. This makes everything SO much easier right from the start. Improving nutrition habits is a process and takes time. Start slow, build strong! Seek balance! #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox #nutrition #diet #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #balancednutrition #healthandfitness #healthandwellness #healthandfitnessjourney #ihatediets #walking #strengthandconditioning #obesity
