Im going to start making videos where I answer questions you may have about diet, fitness, specific exercises, and just silly stuff.
Please stay tuned. I may post them under my jimisitko handle or ChefBroseph on YouTube. If you havent already add my channel on there as well.
In the month of January I did a total of 3,100 pushups. I would do 50 after getting out of bed in the morning and 50 before getting back into bed. This month, February, I will be doing 60 in the a.m. and 60 in the p.m. and continue to add 10 to the total for the whole year of 2013. Before you ask, yes, I do perform 60 pushups without stopping each time.
Stay safe and Stay fit!
Today I got to workout with a gym regular, Charlie. We decided to start with squats and go a little bit lighter but with a higher amount of reps (per the Breathing 20 workout). So here is my workout:
warmup: 2 sets of bodyweight squats x 50reps
135lbs x 20reps x 3 sets (don’t stop until you’re done with the 20reps. You’ll be breathing hard!!)
185lbs x 10reps, 205lbs x 5reps
Barbell front Squats
95lbs x 10reps x 3 sets
Dumbbell Walking Lunges
10lb x 15 lunges up and 15 lunges back (a specific path in the gym and a 10lb dumbbell each hand)
20lb x 15 lunges up and back
30lb x 5 lunges and back (this wasnt too easy)
Calf Raise machine (seated)
100lbs x 20 toes straight, x 20 toes pointed out, and x 20 toes pointed in
150lbs x 20 straight, x 20 out, and x 20 in
250lbs x 20 straight, x 20 out, and x 20 in
100lbs x 1 minute
Leg Extention machine
150lbs x 10reps, 200lbs x 10reps, 75lbs x 10reps (only used one leg)
Sissy Squats x 12reps
(This was the first time I’ve done sissy squats. I did a few to begin with just to perfect form then could only perform 12 reps as my legs quit working)
My legs actually buckled on me a few times today. Feels good man!
I hear the phrase “…but I got the whole-wheat wrap or whole-wheat bread” all the time. If whole wheat is so good for you then why do you look down at your stomach and wonder why those 5lbs+ wont budge or why your six pack isnt there (oh yes everyone has a six/eight pack)? There’s a reason for it:
Your body wants nutrients and vitamins. You can actually eat a lot more food thats dense in nutrients (whole food based–fruits, veggies, and beans) and lose weight compared to eating very little junk food or small amounts of fast-food (I also group restaurant food into the fast-food category) and the weight not budging.
So when youre thinking about eating Subway or Zoe’s Kitchen look down at your stomach and ask yourself if its worth it.
I am logging all my daily foods on MyFitnessPal app again. My name on there is Broseph82. I have everything from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks so everyone who is interested can see exactly what I eat to achieve my current physique.
Lately Ive been mixing my exercises up. Some days Ill be in the gym doing weights and others Im at my sons football practice doing calesthetics on the playground and running on the track. I get bored doing the same ol’ same ol’ and hate being in a stuffy gym when the weather is nice and cool. Ill post some updated pics of me training next week or so when I can get Tonya to take them.
Results=Respect. If you aren’t respecting your body you aren’t going to see the results you want. We are not meant to be obese and sick. We are supposed to be healthy and respecting what we were born with. If you don’t like someone else disrespecting you then why would you disrespect yourself?
If you’re not seeing results then you’re eating something wrong.
Stay positive to remain fit
