    The bells are ringing!...


    Summary
    Todays session was freakin awesome!! I was upset that I had to cancel the KB classes that I teach 2 days ago but I brought that angst with me tonight and I split the class into more advanced/less advanced (I only had 1 class tonight instead of 2) and I did the entire class with my more advanced people since I didn't have to follow their every movement. I plan to work in with the advanced class on tuesday also for a real steady session. Im hyped man....my students are learning so fast.

    I'm pretty sure that the research on this shows that only if you're doing intense stretching immediately before you lift will it hamper your strength/lifting. Light stretching/warm ups has actually been shown to improve your strength/lifting, doing yoga or more intense stretching has also shown to improve flexibility, strength, etc, assuming that you're not doing it immediately before your workouts.

    truth, its static stretching BEFORE your workout that is of issue

    I guess that theory could potentially come into play if you're concerned with the bodybuilding aspect of lifting or the physical appearances...but for me, i'd rather be healthy, strong, and flexible than worry about how I look in a wifebeater ya know? haha.
    Well Deuce Deuce. .

    lol did you see that Isner lost in straight sets today? I had a feeling it was coming. Even the youngest and most fit athletes would have still been 100% drained from that match.

    Touchin my Resticles!...


    Summary
    Well even though I didn't want to, I had to take a rest day today. After work I had to go to a Dr Appt for the boys since they still both have fevers since tuesday. After I had to handle some errands and put my resume out at a few places. Once I got back I had so much stuff to do around here, it was 10pm before I knew it and tomorrow morning when I wake up at 5am for work, i'd be real miserable if I lifted/stretched out/showered this late.

    I also sadly used my "cheat meal" today. I say sadly not necessarily because I was doing so well, but because it was a waste. Mi preggo lady wanted a freezer pizza thingy and once I baked it and had it all ready, the kids were screaming and it was the only thing I could eat aside from a handful of cashews....so that was my dinner. Lame.

    Session
    Touching myself in awkward places....I mean uhh....


    Nutrition
    1. 3 egg whites with peppers/onions/turkey bacon in a wrap with a sprinkle of cheddar, 1 small banana
    2. 2 chicken wings (every friday I make 2 sauces at work and I have to try them to make sure they're on point to hit the public), 1c honeydew, 2c tofu with blueberries
    3. 2.5 slices of stupid freezer pizza with a glass of whole chocolate milk (the milk was worth it )
    4. 1 chicken breast


    Supplementation
    4 Cre-02
    2 RPG

    Son of a PITCH!...


    Summary
    Well Im not going to put a full update for yesterday. I was on point nurtitionally and I did about a half session (25 mins or so) of Renegade Yoga before going to bed. All in all a fairly productive effort.

    Today was a bit better though. Firstly I felt great out of the gate because of doing my yoga last night. I always wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to roll after doing some stretching before I lay down. I then had my 7 or so hours of work for the day, had to go make the payment on the "family van", and then I went to my old house. The house (due to my brother being a giant d0uchebag) will be foreclosed on soon...and I had to see if there was anything else there that I wanted to take with me. Going there always puts my day in sort of a haze...the last time I saw my father awake he was laying on the couch in the living room of that house watching tv. I miss him badly.

    After leaving there I decided to hit the pitch by my lonesome and work on some futbol drills and such. Im not much of a futbol player...but I enjoy it, and its a phenomenal workout. Ive taught myself how to flare and bend it so i've been working on doing it with my left foot also. Either way...I worked out a ridiculous sweat out there and I was running full steam just about the whole time.

    **INTERESTING**
    So by the suggestion of MST sponsored athlete CJ Popovich, I decided to mix 1.5 scoops of RPG with 1 scoop of RagNOrok Ultra (ballistic blue raz). Holy crap is that freakin delicious!! I am going to save the 5 or so servings I have left of cre-02 and run out my tub of RagNOrok with the RPG. Im so freakin stoked on it.

    Session
    The Pitch - about 30 mins of straight running and kicking.
    Renegade Yoga - full session *about 50-60 mins*


    Nutrition
    1. 1 banana, a fair sized piece of Corned Beef.
    2. 1c honeydew, egg white omelet with broccoli, onions, mushrooms, and one slice of swiss.
    3. a fairly large bowl of a mixture of wheaties and mini wheats with skim milk and almond milk combined
    4. 2 chicken breasts with some homemade chipotle BBQ.


    Supplementation
    3 RPG
    1 RagNOrok Ultra - caff free
    2 Mvp365
    2 Zmk
    3 CLOmega 3-6-9

    where are you now in relation to state college? I know state college is probably about 2-2.5 hours from here. That would be awesome if you could make one though. I've been trying to talk Casey (borobulker) into coming to one too...but he's in Rochester so that'd be even further for him, haha.

    Still in State. I graduated and found a job in the area so I'll be here for quite some time. Where are you in relation to Scranton? That's where the 2011 USAPL Collegiate Nationals are being hosted this year if you are interested in seeing some huge lifts.

    Dude its awesome. Im not saying you'd ever want to uphaul your entire program for it...but it's an awesome substitute to help hit all of your stabilizer muscles and work on form for olympic style lifts in a different manner than with the barbell. Plus, with the weight being distributed towards the bottom, a 16kg bell (35lbs) feels heavier than lifting with a 35lb dumbell.

    KBU!...


    Summary
    Today was a great day for the fitness world. Running back to back KB classes was AWESOME. We also named the groups with the 6pm class being "The New Recruits" and the 7pm class being "The Kettlebell Union" (KBU). I got a bunch of good lifts in, my 6pm class learned a lot, and my 7pm class banged out 2 new exercises and rolled through the old ones like wildfire. I am hyped for next tuesday already. The worst part about these classes is the 6 days between them .

    In an important note, i've noticed (especially today) that my breathing has been more labored than usual. It hit me today that since I stopped the Cre-02 in favor of Rok Ultra in my RPG that im not taking any cordygen right now. Im not sure if i'll start running Cordygen 5 or maybe go back on the Cre-02 or wait a few weeks and run some Citruvol Ultra. I will figure it out
