Whats up Fit Fam!
What a great week it has been in the sessions. When I see you actively working on specific parts of the workout and being very engaged it makes me happy as a coach.
Learning is the key to growth so if you can learn one thing a week here then that is a success, right?
It also makes me happy when I see you working together as a group of 2 or 3, pushing each other and challenging each other to work harder and be better. Thank you for that 🙂
Remember that greatness is not only important in the session but outside of this gym as well.
Making sure to be actively changing your nutrition is also crucial, and I want to encourage you to continue to log your food and see what area of your diet could be changed to aid in your goals.
I find that most people don’t eat enough veggies and healthy fats which leads to slower recovery times, more inflammation in the joints, and a less energetic and focused you during day to day activities. Not a good situation, right?
The best way I get in extra veggies and fats is through my “green smoothie” I drink every single day. This is one thing I never change. In fact it has been in my diet for 5 years now and I will never go back. It keeps my energy high, and helps me focus better during long days.
Here is the basic smoothie I suggest:
8 oz spinach or kale
1 tbsp chia seed
1 tbsp flax seed
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup mixed frozen berries
thumb size ginger/tumeric
Add water (or fruit juice of your choice)
Blend and enjoy.
This makes about 40-60 oz depending on how much liquid and consistency you want.
I personaly drink 20 oz upon waking on an empty stomach, 20 oz after a workout, 20 oz for an afternoon boost. It is the most important “snack” of my day, and I encourage you to try it out for 2 weeks and see how you feel.
Let me know what you think.
Also, we will be having open gym tomorrow from 5am to 830am so I look forward to seeing you there!
