What do you do when you're to busy to eat right all the time?

BilderzLandingAdvocare1.png

I am NOT a big supplement person. In fact, I believe most people shouldn't take any supplements until they have changed their diets and have begun to workout consistently (consistently means 3 months ore more). It is only after those changes are made, and people are still having trouble getting good daily nutrition, that I’d recommend supplements.

This past week I got the shock (No pun intended) of reading an article which stated that as a trainer, I made need to have an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) on hand depending on my individual State requirements.

How I am choosing to simplify my diet for success

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_zonetray.jpg

As someone who wears many, many, hats, it is not always easy to keep fit when having to juggle everything. Diet is one thing that I have always struggled with. I'd also say that it is probably the main area that keeps most people from reaching their fitness goals.I am a prime example of someone who gave it their all in the gym and didn't see true results until I changed the way I ate. The problem is that most diets are not sustainable. In my opinion, most diets are so restrictive as to what you can and cannot eat, that they actually make you worse off than if you had never started them.Why? Simply, you starve yourself when following them, then when you can't hang in there any longer, you quit and binge eat to have everything you couldn't eat before.I am so guilty of this. I've tried strict Paleo and have been hardcore about it. I've done the detox, cleared out the cupboards. Followed it to the letter and have seen great results, but not the ultimate results I wanted. I always felt a little sluggish and tired in the gym. This was especially true when I upped my training for competitions.  The solution given for being tired was always "eat more fat". Avocados were my go to source, and while this seemed to work a bit, I never felt super energized. Then to feel full I would eat way more than I should have. Because of this I never got rid of those trouble spots on my stomach and sides.

Last week I was on Facebook and while going through status updates a photo caught my eye and stopped my scrolling dead. Pictured was a horrible box jump gone wrong injury in full color. I’m pretty squeamish so I usually bypass those posts, the ones with accidents etc, never get a second look. Heck I even leave the room during particularly grisly movie horror scenes. But this was different. This was a box jump injury, so I had to look for my own protection and those I train.

For those do it yourselfers, and people without deep pockets, the idea of spending big bucks on a technique bar seems ridiculous. I am a big believer in PVC pipe for learning, but at some stage a person has to move up in weight.

I am on a rant, because once again I came across a stupid article bashing CrossFit. Of course being a big mouth I commented, but that comment was never approved. So wanting my voice to be heard anyway, I decided to post on Bilderz.

I believe in telling things like they are. I am not a fluffy rainbows type of guy that tells you what you want to hear, instead I believe in telling you what you need to hear.

Protein is an important part of our diets, especially for those attempting to build muscle, improve fitness or lose weight.  If you’re looking to bulk up your protein intake with a convenient snack before or after a workout, but you don’t want to resort to protein shakes or products with hidden, artificial nasties, you’ve come to the right place.

  Every year we get ready for the Reebok CrossFit games Open, and every year we go through a sort of ritual leading up to the first announcement. Shortly after the first WOD, the reality that we may not be headed to Carson sets in and emotions for many begin to takeover. Below is a fun look at what I call the “Many faces of the Reebok CrossFit Games Open Competitor” and what many go through from my perspective.

So right before the FTF Affiliate Challenge (2014) I decided to do one of the posted WOD’s for practice. I decided to use a newer bar and absolutely knew I’d get a hand tear during the power snatches if I didn’t wrap. So being proactive I wrapped one of my trouble areas and proceeded with the WOD. It was around ¾ of the way through that I realized my wrap job just plain sucked. The tape slipped and I ended up with a sweet little tear.
