What's up guys!

Thought I would share my workout from today with you as well!

 

Looking for some strong muscle contractions today and sucking some wind!

Eichens Yoga warm up

 

double jump ropes 3 x 50 (just started working on building up single set reps, usually I do 5 to 10 sets of 20 mixed with handstand walking)

 

pistol squats

3x10,8,6 alternating until finished

 

 

one arm lever push up (using med ball)

one arm body row (on jungle gym)

superset 5 x 10.8.6,4,2

 

jump rope x50 to the front alternating legs then 50 to the back counts as one set

power wheel crawl 20 yds

superset 5 rounds keeping a quick pace

 

reverse grip pull up x 5 (to chest arching back and flexing the legs back, basically contracting the whole back side looking for a good squeeze)

back dome x 10 breathes

boat pose x 15 breathes

5 rounds

 

finished with 1 set each of

reverse leg raise with yoga block between feet x 20

reverse crunch x 20 hands on back of head pulling elbows back each rep

lying leg raise x 20 with yoga block between feet (focusing on pressing spine flat entire time and maintaining equal contact on block with feet and ankle

standing trunk rotation with yoga blocks between feet and knees x 50 each way

 

Felt good!  Just what the doctor ordered today, basically sub max effort focusing on strong contractions and form.  Tomorrow I will probably crank up the volume and get more of a PUMP!

 

Good Reppin!

Living the Bodyweight Lifestyle...  Indoors!

 

What's up guys!!

 

Most days I like to train outside.  Sometimes though I'm not in the mood or don't have time do deal with prepping myself to deal with the cold or rain.  Heat is never a problem haha!  This is a pretty nice workout that can be performed with an indoor pull up bar, a chair and the floor!

 

Warm up

15 min of Eischens Yoga (I do this almost before every workout and every day to optimally align the body and wake up sleepy muscles to be prepared to work as well as enhance performance and decrease the risk of injury.  I have found nothing better for this than the Eischens Yoga.  I really don't even like to train without spending atleat 15 min on it before.)

MetCon Bodybuilding Workout

100 squats done with varying foot placement

 

5 sets x 20,15,12,10,8 resting give or take 60 sec between rounds

Reverse grip pull up

bench dips (done off chair)

Push ups

 

5 sets back to back with little rest

squats x20

parallel grip pull ups to chest x 5

 

3x 10,8,6

power wheel rollouts

back dome push ups

 

1 set each

reverse leg raise x 20

reverse crunch x 20

standing trunk rotations x 50 each way

 

Give it a go some time and lemme know what you think!  Adjust reps accordingly for your fitness level and if you have any questions lemme know!!!

 

Good Reppin!

Alkalize and Oxygenate Your Body

Written by

*Nobel prize winner Dr. Warburg*

In his work The Metabolism of Tumors Warburg demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.” "All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live ...without oxygen - a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous."

*According to statistics 41% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer.  

*Eating excessive amounts of animal products and processed foods assists in creating an acidic environment in the body.  
*Sitting at a desk all day breathing shallow and not moving your body to circulate nutrient and oxygen rich blood will also contribute to an acidic and overall sick state of the body.

"Movement is medicine"

"Breathing is life"

*Utilizing a plant based diet will assist the body in achieving an alkaline state. 
*Daily exercise with a variety of movements and with focus on breathing deeply will help to supply oxygen throughout the body.  Focusing on Smooth deep breathes through the nose during your regular daily activities or work will help oxygenate as well as reduce stress levels.  

We must stop living with blinders on and open our eyes to the reality of our current condition. 

Cave men may have eaten a lot of meat but they also ate any plant foods they could find as well. Some ancient peoples derived as much as 40 percent of their calories from honey! For them it was all about short term survival, they didn't live a long life and all they needed was a dense source of calories that would keep them alive till the next day when they would hopefully find a mate and be able to reproduce. 

You are probably not going to get eaten by a bear tomorrow and the threat of dying from physical injury is the lowest it has ever been.

The question now is that during your hopefully longer life than your ancestors are you going to thrive or just simply survive and get by?

Are you going to just coast through and put your livelihood in the hands of others?  Others who are very likely to make a profit due to your lack of knowledge of the truth?

Will you take responsibility for your health as well as make it a point to set an example for your children by living a healthy active lifestyle and trying to get the most of your life on this planet?  

I know my answer and I hope it's the same as yours.

Statistically today's youth are not expected to live as long as their parents.  I am confident that we can step up to the plate and face this issue head on and inspire others to do the same.

I don't believe the reason people are getting sick and suffering and dying from diseases like cancer is because we haven't ran enough 5 K's to raise money for research groups trying to come up with the latest drug. 

I feel money and time would be more well spent on awareness campaigns that would give people the knowledge to empower themselves. 

The responsibility is ours and we must be proactive and take responsibility for our health and well being now!

With this message I wish to challenge you to open your eyes and do a little research on your own.  Make a decision for yourself and do what needs to be done to make yourself healthier and more prosperous and to set an example for the next generation so that they can be even better!

"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."
Buddha

Yours in health, 

Joe
