GSP RushFit Makes You Add The Cardio and Here is My Solution to the Problem
Much has been mentioned about how with GSP RushFit workout, you have open days in the schedule on the calendar to do your own cardio. We see this sometimes two days a week. People who are used to more structure where every day is accounted for like in P90X are somewhat nervous. This stands as one of the few prevalent criticisms of George St. Pierre’s MMA inspired workout.
First, keep in mind that I have yet to hear anyone complain that their results were compromised because they had to find their own exercise for a couple days. In other words what GSP and Erik Owings provide is tough enough on it’s own that the down time isn’t all that big of a deal. Along those lines, my solution to the issue is simple: keep track of your reps and weights with great specificity. Look to increase your speed and degree of difficulty incrementally on the days you do the workout. You’ll reshape your body and get massive benefits. Even if all you do is walk or play with the kids on those off days, you are way ahead of the game.
Bottom line: if you are just showing up doing RushFit, you are going to get great results if you eat right. If you are consciously challenging yourself, you are going to hit a major home run in just 8 weeks. This is probably the same with most workouts.
The Dream of The Substitute For the Candy Bar that Is Healthy and Tastes Good Might Have An Ally: Papa Steve’s Bars
I love tasty sweet things and I don’t think I am alone. But we know what a lot of the processed candy creations from big food companies can do to our body and health. I found an interesting product on twitter this week that might be getting the world closer to bridging the gap. The buzz is very promising. I am talking about Papa Steve’s Bars. (The picture below isn’t them, but I wanted to put you into a dreamy state.)
Papa Steve’s are Whey Protein, Handmade and Soy and Gluten Free. I keep hearing they taste great. I’d love for some of the readers to give them a go and report in. Papa Steve’s Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/papastevesbars and website: www.papasteves.com
Great Technique, Focus, and A Higher Purpose Beats Fancy Equipment Any Day With The FOrtress
Anytime you see a fitness message online that so closely aligns with your own viewpoints and experiences on getting fit, you can’t help but take notice. This week I had the honor of meeting Paul after seeing his FOrtress body weight workout program. “Priorities Shape You” is the message and when it comes to getting really fit, it is the truth. Paul is also a dedicated Christian. I am not, but I have a high degree of admiration for people like him who have that focus.
He shares some great information on how body weight work can reshape your body on his YouTube page. On a practical level, the idea that you need expensive programs or equipment is a myth that always needs some busting.
One of his most popular is How to Get Big Biceps With Bodyweight Exercises! Only 3 Exercises! This guy has no hidden agendas and wants to see everyone do well to meet their goals. I love people like that. Check him out.
Sustainable Passive Income as a Beachbody Coach
I have to admit that prior to this week I knew of the Beachbody Coach business opportunity, but I actually knew nothing about it. I had the excellent fortune of meeting Jake Buehler of Jake’s Fit Club this week and he set me straight. I came away very impressed by what being a Beachbody Coach means and the ways it can transform your life financially. The first thing I learned is you aren’t a fitness instructor. What you are really doing is talking about the excellent Beachbody products like P90X and Hip Hop Abs and talking about them. You need to check out Jake’s story and how he got going here.
You can check out Jake’s website at http://jakesfitclub.com/. His YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/user/JakesFitClub. I love his enthusiasm and knowledge. I also love the Beachbody Coaching opportunity after trading messages with him. It is really important for our long-term health to find sustainable methods for an all-around better life. This means looking at ways to make residual income so we have more time to rest, play and renew. That residual income is income where you don’t have to trade hours to make it. If you are in the fitness world and have been a fan of anything Beachbody, get with Jake now.
My Twitter Friend Chika Obih Provided This Bad Breath Remedy
Try some green tea on a regular basis. I pitched it to a relative who has chronic bad breath (she admitted it to me, I didn’t tell her she had it). She said she knew within a day or two that everything was just fresher. Most importantly she didn’t notice people avoiding getting within a fair acceptable conversation distance. The usual disclaimers apply that Chika and I don’t have the problem, but many do and normally it isn’t their fault. A little specific knowledge can go a long way.
