Still No Gym, But Here’s A Home Biceps Workout!

It’s been a while, but hello again. I hope you’ve been taking good care yourself and looking out for your loved ones during this crazy pandemic.

Did you ever think we would be out of the gym for this long? I sure didn’t. But here we are, forging ahead in our home fitness routines.

What kind of changes have been made with your circuits?

How much growth?

How much decline (if any)?

I started seeing some growth with this jewel from Jeff Cavalier, supreme architect of Athlean-X. My biceps started noticeably shrinking due to my limited resistance at home.

Check it out, implement it and let me know how you like it.

The Beginners Guide To Weight Training

To keep things rolling in the spirit of fitness, I have another great video I want to share with you. But first, let me set it up for you.

A lot of you who are stuck in the house from COVID-19 have, at this point, reserved back into your basic calisthenics routines or your home gym. Now some of you might never have worked out a day in your life, and are officially about to start.

And this is who I’m speaking to in particular. I’m speaking to you, who are just beginning your fitness journey. There are a lot of things I wish I had known before I did my first calisthenic set. There were a lot of preparatory principles I wish I knew before I walked into a gym.

This is why I want to share this video with you by Mike Thurston. He touches on points such as learning proper form and to move a weight you can handle before overload.

He also touches on the importance of doing everything outside of the gym that compliments your time In the gym. So without further or due, let’s get to the video by one of the UK’s best trainers.

Check out his wisdom and let me know what you think.

10 Simple Ways to Build Self Control (#3 Is Crucial)

Control is a word that I’ve always heard mixed feelings about. I’ve heard that:

“None of us are in control because we’re on a giant ball in space, spinning at a few thousand miles an hour, so what’s the point?”

I’ve also heard:

“You must maintain control in your life at All times if you want to make it out here.”

So I generally agree with both actually. I do believe that we have absolutely no control in the fate of the planet and its universal orbit. I also believe, however, that you have complete control over the choices you make on a daily basis.

I found this video from a Youtube channel I follow called Top Think. I watch videos from this channel all the time but this one is special, especially in these current times.

It’s on building self control in 10 simple ways. Topics like this always resinate with me because self control is something that I’ve struggled with in different aspects of my life. Number 3, for example, touches on the importance of the “Doing” mentality vs the “Trying” mentality.

It’s amazing how much a word change can open up a different kind of motivational attitude. Check it out and let me know what you think.

How To Build Muscle At Home

We are still in the midst of this Coronavirus pandemic and, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be over for quite a while. I’d just like to say keep strong, remain vigilant, stay in your homes as much as you can and keep your body moving in the meantime.

I found another home fitness workout that I’d like to share with you. Seeing that we’re going to be in this for a while I don’t see why I can’t just share these as I find them.

There is never too much you can do when it comes to being creative with your home workouts….as long you’re being safe in the process. Before I got into the gym life I worked out all of the time at home, so trust me when I tell you you can be very productive with a little creativity.

My favorite exercises to do in the beginning of those times were traditional calisthenics. Pushups, pull-ups, dips, planks and crunches done in different variations. The videos I share will be just that…a variation of ideas to do calisthenics in push, pull, upper, lower methods.

Today’s video is by Jeremy Ethier, certified by NASM and FMS (functional movement screening), and a Kinesiology graduate based in Vancouver, Canada. His video tutorials are among the elite in health and fitness.

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love pasta.

I mean….it’s (almost) right up there with pizza for me.

The only problem is my diet and lifestyle. Well it’s not really a problem, it’s more of a safety precaution. I can’t really eat pastas like I want to because:

A. I don’t receive dairy in abundance well and…

B. The acidic buildup can be fatal over time (more on that later).

I should mention…

You Do NOT need to be a vegan to enjoy vegan dishes. And, while we’re on the subject, you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy vegetarian dishes either (think that through).

I was a vegan for 2 weeks in college and a vegetarian for 10 years stemming from high school. I can’t help but think that those years had a lot to do with why I’m told I look so young now. I can tell you that I experienced some of the best food of my life.

My point is…for you meat eaters (like I am now, sometimes), I’d like you to be open this recipe I found.

Vegan Creamy Spicy Sun Dried Tomato Pasta.

It’s for Vegan Creamy Spicy Sun Dried Tomato Pasta. This particular recipe comes from Amy Le creations and it’s Incredible!

I had it over the weekend and I think you will love it. Try it out and let me know what you think!
