Movement Monday. ➖
Finishing up some more assessments on myself this week: I've come to the realization I need to be a bit more objective with my own training and programming, and own up to the biases I tell myself. ➖
When performing any power exercises where I'm in a split stance, or if I'm boxing/kickboxing I'll always favor my right foot being forward because it makes me feel better to know I'm more proficient at it. & that's a barrier for progression on all fronts. ➖
Rate of force production assessing today, the comfortability and efficiency differences are apparent.
I started messing around with this after my first working set of deadlifts, and it then engulfed my workout 🤣. I practiced for about 90 minutes. -
Timing, agility, control, coordination, footwork, and cardio. -
& it was fun af
Spent some time today thoroughly going over getting protein in lunches, and not throwing calories over on lunch so that dinner sets you over the top. -
All of these lunches are between 415-530 calories, and no less than 35g of protein. -
My client wants smaller lunches calorie wise, but not have it reduce her protein intake at lunch. Her are a few examples I worked out for her:
Lunch #1 : 5 oz grilled chicken breast with 2 tbsp's of honey chipotle BBQ sauce, and a 3 Cup spinach salad with 1/4 Cup shredded cheese, 4 sweet peppers, and half a packet of ranch. -
Lunch #2 : 6 oz of lean Italian sausage, 2 cups babykale/spinach mix, a dozen grape tomatoes with a large honey crisp apple.
Lunch #3 : One large can of natural chicken breast, 1 cup arugula/Swiss chard mix, 6 diced grape tomatoes, 1 Tbsp of butter, and 1 Tbsp of mayonnaise, and 12 chia and quinoa tortilla chips. -
Hope this helps! (Meals can of course be scaled for higher calorie diets, I ate about twice this)
Hitting my macronutrients, and my micronutrients.

6 tablespoons smoky jalepeno cheese

I also had 2 lattes, a muffin, 2 slices of glazed gingerbread, and enough guac to turn my eyes green today #flexibledieting
We've been working on foundational strengthening, and postural improvement on Jordin these past two months.
On July 31st she couldn't maintain an upright posture with the barbell for 8 reps. Here's her fifth set of five reps:
She also couldn't press the barbell without pain, and at least 5% assistance from me. Here's her sixth set of three reps:
Supplemental exercises are banded overhead squats, and scapula wall hold.
On the rare occasion that I actually have leftovers, I make the most of that shit. 🍤

NEW BLOG POST: "How to be a Health Conscious Alcoholic"
"Now I’m not here to be like a dimwitted big brother and give destructively guiding oversight like telling you beer before liquor, you’ll get sicker and shit like that. We’re all adults, we have our own preferences, routines, and knowledge, I would just like to break down better vs. worse choices, and some lifesaving mixers."
