Headshot Preparation is Key: I truly believe if you don’t plan, construct and write things down, that you are setting yourself up for failure. It may not be right away, however driving to a destination without GPS or a map of some kind will eventually get you lost. When you plan and write things down you now have a visual to remind you where you are going, what your goals are and it keeps you on the road of success instead of veering off and having to start over and get back on. Do I always prep my meals for the week or the few days out? Nope! And trust me I notice the difference in efficiency and staying on track because now I’m having to scramble around and find food on the go, which isn’t easy when you have reach the point of being HANGRY!  You are more susceptible to talk yourself into eating whatever. “Well its leg day, I can eat that!” kaboom2 Diets are Riots:  I’m not a fan of diets, it’s so temporary and it creates this wifi internet mentality, where we are never satisfied with the speed of the progress. Wifi today has come so far from dial up and we still complain that it’s not fast enough! You just lost 14lbs in 5weeks and it’s still not good enough! Why? You visualize it as a sprint to a destination instead of making it an Ironman Triathlon of a lifestyle. I have a baseline of eating clean and I follow a protocol called Intermittent fasting, which is a time management of how you consume your calories. I fast 16hrs and my eating window in which I consume my foods is within an 8hr window. The science behind it is brilliant and once you adopt the lifestyle it’s amazing! You are able to have a balanced lifestyle and not have a bad relationship but a great one with food. Typically Monday thru Saturday I eat high protein rich whole foods and protein shakes married with veggies, some fruit, rolled oats and brown rice. Typically Sundays are “Sunday Funday” I still do Intermittent fasting but I bump up my calories and eat whatever I want in that eating window which actually works like a reefed day essentially. kaboom4 Surprise your Muscles: In my humble opinion, constantly varied is the way to go. I like to mix it up! I love training like an athlete where there is a lot of intensity and athletic multi joint movements however I switch it up every 6 weeks and then I throw in a 12 week muscle building phase which I still sprinkle in my athletic finishers or cardio including agility ladder work, pull up bar starzz influenced work, boxing and other crazy multi joint movements that you can see on my instagram. I will go from Crossfit to bodybuilding to callisthenic training to confuse the muscles and create an environment of having an athletic mobile body. I want o be a supple leopard! So I’m really trying to program more mobility work and I have started with Kelly Starrett’s “Becoming a supple Leopard”, and Carl Paoli’s “Free+Style” books. boxing Hello H2O!: Anyone who follows my Snap Chat knows how much I believe and preach on the benefits of water. It’s a necessity for optimum health, muscle building, nutrient funneling, and max effort in your training. I started the “CLG” (Chug Lyfe Gang) Where I encourage others at the very least to drink a gallon of water a day. It’s a community of individuals who are inspired and motivated to live a healthier lifestyle which started from consuming more water in their daily routine. Water increases skin health, elasticity in your skin, digestive problems, weight loss, balancing of your lymph system, energy and so much more. A lot of the time, fatigue comes from mild dehydration. We all need to drink more water. As athletes we need to easily drink more than a gallon. kaboom1 Sleep Recovery: No days off right? We keep up with that mentality and we will have infinite days off soon. I will be the first to tell you that I have struggled with not getting ample sleep because I’m such a night owl. I like to stay up late, for some reason I get energized, more creative and can efficiently knock out task. However the body needs time to refuel and repair. For metabolic reasons, some people need more sleep than their counterparts. Obviously genetics play a role in your sleep to a certain extent. If you are an avid fitness enthusiast and like to train the majority of your week, you need extra sleep. To keep it simple, the more you do, the more time is needed to rebuild. Sleep is powerful and essential for recovery from breaking down your muscles, CNS (central nervous system) and weight loss. Lack of sleep heightens your sugar and sodium cravings and causes your metabolism to slow down because the body is intelligent, it knows it’s not getting proper rest and needs to conserve on energy. This can vary based off the style of training I’m doing. Currently I’m doing a bodybuilding style training for 12 weeks, so….My weekly workouts can look something like this: Monday: Chest/ Triceps/ abs/calves/ Cardio Tuesday: Back/Bicep/Abs/ Running/agility work Wednesday: Active rest day (Mobility, walk/run) Thursday: Shoulders/ Calves/Abs/Running Friday: Leg day/Abs/ Walking Saturday: Athletic agility day/Accessory work Special Events: Putting on a local event at the Reebok Outlet in Camarillo, Ca 1/19/2016 (Leading a workout for the community FREE) I will be at IDEA this year with Reebok.
