In my never ending journey to finally get back healthy I have found a way to get the running I need without running around in circles on a track. I have been playing a lot of basketball lately and it has really made me feel great. My legs have really gotten a good workout from constantly running, jumping, stopping, going all over the court. Corbin has been my hooping partner the past few days and we basically run the court... yeah. But we do have a lot of fun and it is a great way to run around, have fun, and meet people all at the same time.

I've been hitting the weight room a lot harder the past few days. The biggest difference now is that I have some help. I've been working out with my friend Maleek and we are both trying to play football again. I think it helps that me and him have the same goals and can push each other to be the best that we can be. It also helps that we get along outside the weight room. If you really want results I suggest you guys find a friend that you trust and push each other to the limit. My workouts have been a lot more productive since me and him started working out together.

posting everyday has definitely been a struggle for me, but not as much of a struggle as constantly working out. working out by yourself sucks, which is why i usually like to lift with friends. but when my friends don't want to lift, i seem to skip out on my lifts. its also hard to keep putting my body through really hard routines because i need time to recover. im going to try to post pre workout and post work out from here on out so that i can reach the post amount that we are looking for

This week i experimented with a set of curl workouts that really worked my biceps. I have pretty big arms so I felt like I could handle any curl workout that I found. This workout however, is meant to take you down no matter how strong you are because it makes you keep going until you can't any longer. What you have to do is take about 45 lbs on a preacher curl and do 7 curls, then you take off 10 lbs and do 7 more, after that take off 10 more lbs. once you get down to 5 lbs and do 7 reps, you go back up adding 10 lbs until you get to 45 lbs. You keep going up and down until you can't do it any longer. This will definitely be a good workout for anyone who wants to get their biceps bigger, stronger, and more defined.

I am constantly looking for a way to improve this health quest that I am on. I have started consuming fruit like its my day job! pineapples, oranges, and grapes are my lunch. as well as a bottle of water, I feel great throughout the day and i'm not hungry like I though I would be. You guys should try it. Go to lafollete and grab 2 pineapple cups, 2 orange cups, 2 grape cups, and a water. That is all under 7.55 which means you won't have to use your dining plus. The energy that fruit gives is quite remarkable and the weight is already coming off. hopefully this can help some of you guys who are trying to lose weight!

Ok so I've been away for awhile doing my challenge. It has be pretty successful, but I have found something even better than push ups and sit ups! (better than push ups and sit ups?) YES BETTER THAN PUSH UPS AND SIT UPS! I have discovered the workout that the guys from the movie 300 did to get in shape for the movie. I am now doing that work out everyday. The first day I did this I threw up. Thats how great this workout is. I feel amazing doing it. It consists of 25 pull ups, then 50 dead lifts of 135 pounds, then 50 push ups (so there are push ups), then 50 box jumps, then 50 of an abs workout of your choice, the 50 of a shoulder workout of your choice, ended by 25 more pull ups. The key to the workout is to do all of these things as fast as you can. This is what makes it so tiring and intense! I'll keep you posted on how becoming a spartan is going.
