Full Body Workout to Fill Up that Costume!

What’s up guys!

I’ve been a little MIA for the last 2 months but now am back to give you guys more regular content to help you get stronger & build more muscle

Since we are finally in October am sure a lot of you wanna pack on some muscle to fill up those costumes the real way, unlike this guy:

Halloween Muscle Costume

So today I got a simple full body workout for you to try today in order to achieve this:

1A) Deadlifts 5×8
1B) Strict Over Head Press 5×8

60sec rest between each superset

2A) Push Ups 3×15
2B) Lunges 3×10
2C) Heavy 1 Arm Dumbbell Rows 3×8

60sec rest between each superset

3) Kettlebell Swings 1×100 (as many sets as it takes)

If you don’t have a KB, then substitute with jump rope x100 or 5 sprints

Make sure to also warm up, stretch afterwards (will help you lessen your soreness), drink plenty of water & sleep a lot

Of course if you are training to get bigger then eating a lot more is a requirement (there is no way around it)

So here are 2 simple foods you can eat in order to meet that calorie surplus:

1) Eat 1 cup of brown rice with every meal: Sometimes you won’t wanna eat it, but if you trying to get bigger then this is an easy way to get more calories in (about 215)…try mixing it up with your food so it doesn’t taste too bland

2) Drink a 1 cup of milk, 1 banana & 2 big tablespoons of peanut butter shake after your workouts: Tastes pretty damn good & it’s about an extra 400 calories a day

So there you go, give this workout a try & get more calories in if your goal is to get bigger by Halloween time

So am rocking a sexy tank top tan right now! (not cool) but who cares right?

It will even out later, anyway…

Most people in my neighborhood when it’s over 100 degree’s prefer to stay indoors

To be locked up and use the advanced technologies of air conditioning to keep cool

To me it’s the opposite

I see sun and I wanna be outside playing:

Riding a bike, hitting some calisthenics at the playground, sprinting, throwing rocks around, hiking, swimming, playing soccer or climbing a short wall:

Mexicans jumping a wall

Today at work we had to move some hay around on a dirt lot because the gym that I work at will be having an obstacle race tomorrow

And moving around hay it’s a bitch! but fun at the same time!

We wheel barrowed some of it & some we threw it up at my friend’s jeep and did a little bit of off roading up a little hill!

After about 3 hrs of work 2 other guys & I where covered in hay, itching everywhere and had horrible tans! jaja

I personally wished more people would respect and do more physical labor

I don’t just mean at a work place, but even when you go shopping:

Instead of getting a cart, try to grab 2 baskets and farmer walk them with your groceries

You will get weird stares from others around, but you’ll be getting a short grip workout while you shop

And if you wanna make this worst, then park super far away, so you really have to walk!

Of course doing this won’t get you abs or bigger biceps but you can at least smile away when you finally reach your car & know that you conquered this mini obstacle

You don’t have to even count this as a workout, just do it for fun & because you love strength – do it because you can!

Let me know how it goes & have a great weekend + don’t get in too much trouble! 😉

The Itch to Workout at Night – Good or Bad?

late night handstands workout

Some people argue as to when it’s the best time to train

Some say that early morning is best, but others say mid afternoon is optimal

both of these groups have tons of research and scientific studies to back up their claims

And while it’s cool to have something that verifies what you claim is true, we gotta remember that we live in non-linear world

Nothing is ever perfect nor does it go as planned

So these research and studies are cool but they are only points of reference and something to take into account

When it comes down to when is the best time to train, the answer is right now!

There is no right or wrong, the best time is when you want to & feel best

For some it’s in the morning, others in the afternoon and others at night…whatever the time is just get things done

Not because a study says you’ll release more growth hormone or burn more calories at that time interval but because your body is telling you to move, your craving movement so don’t ignore this primal urge & just go in attack mode

If you have the itch to train at night then workout at night

Even if some say that working out late at night will make you be even more awake so you won’t be able to sleep well,then take into account but don’t fully believe it unless you have actually validated this claim for yourself

I personally cranked out a late night workout yesterday & aside from the horrible heat I slept pretty damn well (sometimes I even train past midnight just because I get the itch to train)

So if night is the only time you have to get things done then do it!

Forget the science stuff for bit & just do the damn work

Sometimes all of those research & studies only confuse you and lead you to over-thinking and inaction

So if you got an itch to train, do it!

No Excuse Backyard Workout in Culiacan, Sinaloa!

2 months ago I wrote a post on how to workout during vacation

I went to Mazatlan during that time & knew that I had to rely on minimalistic workouts & Bodyweight training

While I was there I recorded this little ghetto workout that I cranked out at my grandparent’s back yard!

– Pull ups on the metal pipe & roof
– Overhead pressing & squatting rocks
– And more bodyweight training

Simple, effective & just make it in happen even tough I have no “gym equipment”

There are way too many ways to workout, you just gotta be open minded, creative & stop making excuses

So give a workout like this a try next time your on vacation or next time you wanna break the rules!

How To Structure Your Workouts for Strength & Performance

This is a special piece of paper How to Train for Strength & Athletic Performance Notes

That what you see there are some of my ugly notes notes that I took on Sunday when I went to a strength seminar with 3 badass coaches that showed me how to get stronger, move better & design better workouts

It’s always fun to meet some of your mentors & teachers live as you get to not only become their friends but experience how much care and attention they personally give to you…their passion and knowledge just shines every moment when they are sharing what they know with you

If you ever have a chance to go to a live workshop, seminar or camp DO IT! You’ll learn a lot more in those couple of hrs than in weeks studying by yourself

Travis StoetzelBut anyway back to my notes…

Those notes are from when Travis Stoetzel (the beast pictured o the right) was sharing with us how he structures some of his & his athlete’s workouts in order to improve their performance

It’s a pretty simple formula & am sure you can’t read my handwriting so I’ll explain what I wrote here:

1 – Soft Tissue work (AKA Foam rolling) – 2-4min (before & after workout)
2 – Dynamic Warm Up (5-7 min)
3 – Speed/Explosive Exercises (Done at the beginning as your CNS is fresh & can generate more power)
4 – Strength Exercises (1-6 rep range)
5 – Assistance Exercises (Sub Maximal Reps – so get close but don’t go to failure)
6 – Conditioning (+3 Core & 3 grip exercises)

There is a lot more detail as to why he structures things this way, but if you understand the overall picture you can implement this formula with your workouts to get stronger & stay lean!

I personally use a similar template when I create my workouts, and from experience I can tell you that this structure works a little bit too well to get stronger and stay lean!

Am sure you are still trying to read what I wrote in my notes, so keep trying as there are more tips to get stronger, train for fat loss & a simple tip to break trough a pull up plateau (hint: do towel pull ups;)

If your interested in seeing more of Travis’s workouts, then check out his Bags, Bells & Bodyweight program where he shares with you how to use sandbags, kettlbells & bodyweight training to get stronger, leaner, & more athletic, check it out here:

P.S. The seminar was recorded, so I’ll let you guys know when you can get a copy of the videos!+ you’ll probably also see me getting hypnotized! :O

Training at a farm & I can front Squat Now!

Went to a farm this past weekend & look at what I found! 😀

1 year ago I couldn’t do front squats at all, the bar pretty much choked me out, you can clearly see that here:

And today although they still aren’t perfect, I can actually hold the barbell in front of me without choking myself out now! ha

Back in June last year I went to Florida to visit my mentor, coach & friend Elliott Hulse and he showed me how to correct a lot of the imbalances that were stopping me from front squatting, I still got a lot of work to do, but progress is happening! 🙂

If you are interested you can see all that he thought me in this video course: Strengthology

Or if you want I wrote about my experience there in these 2 posts:

Got a Wall? Then You Have No Excuses to Not Workout! [Video]

The other day I told you how a little creativity will build mental toughness

Finding a way to make things happen when you don’t have a clear answer is a skill that is developed overtime

You start to see obstacles as fun opportunities to test yourself & grow stronger

One of the things that I love to do is to try and workout with anything & anywhere

  • The kitchen
  • The door
  • The sofa
  • My car
  • The stairs
  • etc..

It’s fun to get creative & find ways to make things happen in different environments…it keeps me hungry& always wanting to try new things

One of the funnest & most challenging places to get a workout done is next to a wall, just like I show below

==> 3 Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do With a Wall! (NO EXCUSES)

You might simply see a wall as something that is just there, but when you attempt to climb it & do pull ups + dips on it, the dynamic of everything changes & brings out an energy inside of you that wants to conquer this obstacle

So next time you pass by a wall, climb it & crank out a little workout there…I guarantee that you will feel invincible afterwards!
