Workout of the Week: The Body Weight Scorcher

Ever heard of the acronym K.I.S.S.?

No, I’m not talking about the famous band (that would be a random reference to make)…

Keep.

It.

Simple.

Stupid.

Trainers these days love to create the craziest, most bizarre workouts to burn weight off the belly. While some of these routines can be effective, a lot of them are more for show and less for results.

Sometimes, you just have to go back to the roots of fitness for an old school body burn, just like today’s workout. Simple exercises (with some added mechanics, of course) really are enough to get you the results you’ve been dying for! Your whole body will love this one.

Get ready to get going!

Recipes: Easy Pickled Radish

“Robert Roper reaped a row of pickled radishes”

Ok, so maybe that doesn’t have the same ring to it as that ole’ fanciful Peter Piper tongue twister, but Robert would really love today’s recipe…pickled radish!

You just have to infuse some healthy ingredients with the radishes—celery seeds, black peppercorns, and raw honey to name a few—and you have yourself a versatile side dish.

That’s right. Meats and salads pair really well with pickled radishes. There’s even a Korean pickled radish dish called kkakdugi that you’ll probably see at a lot of Korean restaurants you go to.

Alright, let’s get the lowdown on this delicious recipe.

Your Mind is Powerful…So Why Not Tap Into It?

They say we only use 10% of our brains…

That’s a whole lotta brain begging to be used!

How to Crush the Hardest Part of Your Workout

“Just one more! You can do it!”

“Don’t give in! You’re almost there!”

Why do trainers love saying stuff like this to their clients? Do they know something that we don’t?

They actually do know one thing about fitness that flies over nearly everyone else’s heads…

Fitness is as much mental as it is physical.

When you overcome that nagging voice in your head that swears you can’t do it, that right there is the best feeling ever.

If you’ve ever seen the movie Rocky, you might remember that he would end his runs by running up a bunch of steps, get to the top, stare out at the cityscape, and hold his arms up like the champ he was.

That can be YOU, I promise. You just have to push past those moments when your body wants to stop. Trust me: you’ll see more growth in yourself than ever before.

I want you to feel like Rocky after every one of your workouts. Here’s how to do it…

Workout of the Week: Power Play!

The power is in your hands! It’s also in your shoulders, your biceps, your triceps, your forearms…

We designed a great workout to power you (and your body) up! All it requires are dumbbells and effort.

You might not think power is sexy, but it does come in handy. Just imagine a normal run to the local grocery store. You’ll push a cart full of groceries (and possibly a child if you have one), lift items off the shelves to put into your cart, hoist those same items onto the conveyor belt when you’re about to pay, and take them in and out of your car.

Even a little power and strength will spare your arms from feeling the pain (without gains).

You’ll be doing 3 rounds of 4 minute-long stations. That means you’ll spend a minute at each station, no transition break (you’ll get a minute of rest during each round). Simple enough?

It’s power hour!
