Transform It

February 22, 2017

Reform

January 29, 2017

“To reform means to shatter one form and to create another…” ~George Santayana

The other day when we were at Whole Foods, we stopped to get meat from the butchers. One guy who knows us from there said “what’s up? You guys still training at Mandrill’s?” In between ordering a grippa meat Mike said yeah. The butcher said… “so…… is that like a serious gym?” I pointed to my head and said… “serious is here.” Serious is a state of mind, not a place, but I get a big kick outta people who still have to learn that. It’s part of reform! This is my newest hoodie and it’s the shit!

The Jolt

January 22, 2017

Today I’m feeling a *tude so I pretty much stomped it out in the gym. It’s all just so inspirational, igniting my inner beast… sending a jolt down my spine.

My focus is seriously like….. woaaaah and that weapon alone (ok maybe with music) will secure my goals on bench, squat and deadz for 2017. I mean the hottest dude could be around and I’m unbroken~ straight killin’ my mission like I’d run him right over to get that rack I’m needing.

One of my friends from the gym always thinks I’m on pre-workout or a buncha caffeine (actually, a lot of people ask me if I take pre-workout), but he and his bae were like… you’re on a mission today! I take no pre-workout and haven’t in years. I drink ’bout 1.5 a day of coffee… nothing major. You know what it is? It’s simple actually…

I’m now able to control my mind in these mysterious ways when I’m in the gym. Music induces this naturally elevated mental state. I’m then able to evoke all of my monsters and control the iron. The jolt runs through me like I’m on this mission alone.

Burn It Down

December 3, 2016

Burning the house da fuk down to Seven Enemies in the gym today. I love this song by Hatebreed and Saturday!! I’m set to kill it on chest soon… cold… dead… buried… for real.

A Story of Me

November 23, 2016

This morning (I mean every morning) when I get up, I feel like I got run over by a truck. I’m like… ommm… maybe “I should just take it easy today?” Then I get to the gym and I’m like… “neeaaahhh.” I made me a custom meme to describe these exact feelings.

Today, I was finally convinced to try the bands on deads. It was a different hit for sure. I felt my hams way more with them on. I guess I could see them useful in strengthening my hams, increasing my grip strength and maybe improving my lockout on heavier lifts.

Refill the Tank

November 2, 2016

I’ve been eating my daily vitamins and a dried fruit strip to kick start glycogen restoration immediately following my workout. These are all vegan and have no gelatin. I’m also drinking 1/2 cup of oatmeal in my post workout protein shake… packing more glycogen into my muscle cells.

I actually created this composite the day after I got my Halloween stilettos, but I must say… this set done at my old shop looks way better so I pasted a new photo over the old one. And yes… I’m able to deadlift like a mofo with these nails bitcheeez.

“Glycogen is a chain of glucose molecules that your muscles and liver use to store energy for immediate future use. Your body contains a glycogen reserves of between 450 and 550 grams. If you exercise intensely, you may require more than 500 grams of carbs to restore your body’s glycogen reserves. Glycogen is almost completely exhausted after intense exercise exceeding 60 minutes; a 90-minute run will deplete glycogen reserves. Where loss of muscle glycogen lowers the functionality of muscles, loss of liver glycogen leads to a lowering of blood sugar, lethargy and inhibition of thyroid hormone release, and thus reduced fat burning. It is critical to restore glycogen reserves in the 24 hours following exercise. The first two hours are especially important. Dr. John Berardi, a professional nutritionist, recommends consuming 50 to 60 grams of high glycemic index carbohydrates in the two hours following exercise.”

BeetElite★

August 24, 2016

This beet powder has been my new addiction. I mix one sports endurance pack of BeetElite a day into water with my clean aminos. Before you take any nitric oxide supplement, read up. There is only so much you can take in a certain period of time. Beets are so good for you and this stuff is easy to drink. I love it! It’s almost 2 bucks per packet at Whole Foods, but when it comes to increased endurance levels, no price is to steep.

I linked two good articles below about the nitric oxide. So basically, what can it do for you? Well… increase recovery rates, reduce fatigue, improve endurance, increase blood flow, help burn body fat, increase muscle pumps, improve sex, regulate brain activity, release more adrenaline, and help you live longer! Yup… the package doesn’t lie… my beet powder is indeed a superfood.
