My friends know that I am a bit of a body-hacker, and I am always game for experimenting with nutritional changes to see what happens. My friend Sutton Stokes had been having great success using a ketogenic approach to eating and I decided to try it.
Yesterday in my workout with Grant Hill, we did Turkish Get Ups — one of my favorite exercises. The original purpose of the Turkish Get Up is to train wrestlers to “get up” from a pinned position — a very difficult task. Here’s how to do a Turkish Get Up.
A good friend was telling me the other day how he attended a swap meet and ended up with a bamboo bike — he’s a serious cyclist and this sounded like a serious cycle. I thought you’d like to see it. So I asked for pix.
Having someone else in the workout puts me on my best behavior. As we go through our circuits, I don’t want to let my partner down. I see him persevering, and I push myself that much harder.
Today at the gym I did my “Workout B” — Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Presses, and a metabolic conditioning routine (in this case two times Box Jump / Push Up 21-15-9 for time). How did I do?
I enjoy sharing with friends my dietary and lifestyle changes and how they have dramatically impacted my well-being, my weight, and my body composition. I have also begun to make some changes to my fitness routine that I thought might be of interest. I have been seeing good results.
I know that many friends look at all of the fitness things I do and think to themselves: “How insane is that person!” I will grant you that I work out at a fairly intense level these days, but there is much more to the story. I want to give a strong recommendation to the idea of working with a personal trainer.
