Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow.Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
Broccoli Salad and Beef Stir Fry…
Garage will be moving from construction mode very soon. After tomorrow, we will have to put the rubber tiles in, paint the walls, and then set up my treadmill, elliptical, recumbant bike, rower, and pilates equipment…
Actually, after the floor and paint, I have some bars, plates, pull up bar, rings, and kettlebells to furnish what my neighbor is calling the “house of pain”. I will eventually have a rower, and Jen want’s her treadmill in the gym, so it will most likely be folded in the corner to ensure that I have enough space for olympic lifting, ring muscle ups and burpees!
This is not the most recent photo. Today we just about finished sheeting the walls, and the exterior is done. One more day and then we get to put everything in the 288 square feet!
A friend of mine was here this week and was laughing that I am building a gym and the people who are hired to build the addition are smoking like chimneys in the middle of winter! How ironic.
