Have you tried to establish a regular workout routine before? If so, what’s stopped you from sticking with it? Often, we try to commit to too much too soon — and then we give up because our bodies and minds aren’t ready. Other times, we just don’t believe in ourselves or in the results. We think “people like us don’t get to feel fit,” and leave it at that. Allow yourself to look back at past efforts and become aware of what knocked you off track. Then look at the future, and ask yourself: what can I do to make sure I CAN be consistent this time?
lYour mind is the path to your heart❤️. How do you care for it? Do you meditate?
The concept of meditation has been corrupted and we see mounds of people promoting techniques that quiet & clear the mind of things that tend to be identified as “monkey mind thoughts.” “If I could just stop thinking of that,” you say, “I would be relaxed and happy.” In the minds of many people meditation is associated with eastern religions, like Hinduism and Buddhism – belief systems that don’t acknowledge God as Father or Jesus as Savior and Lord. This kind of association leads many people to think that meditation in any form opens the mind to faulty thinking. However, if you are interacting with Scripture it’s a whole different experience... It can not only nurture your mind, but also truly heal your heart ❤️. “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.“ (Psalm 1:1-2)
Biblical meditation is not sitting with an empty mind on a cushion or repeating a single word or positive phrases to gain an altered state of mind. Nor is it practicing yoga. It’s really not even for relaxation, although you may find it calming. It’s not about controlling your breath, although breathing is helpful. It’s also never a mindless practice. Instead, in this kind of meditation your mind is focused on God and his Word.
In the Bible, we are told to meditate on Christ’s actions, law, or testimonies that are found within his Word. When you meditate this way, you THINK 🤔 and PONDER on what the scriptures mean and the implications for your life. Over the past 20+ years, I’ve taken tons of yoga classes and workshops. I’ve been exposed to so many types of relaxation practices. I’ve learned that when I’m guided to clear my mine and solely use relaxation techniques to settle myself down that my anxiety comes right back! It gives me short-term relief. While that is good..I’ve learned that long-term relief comes from THINKING or meditating on scripture and digging deep to see what is at the root of my symptoms. This resolves the....
‘YOU CAN’T CHANGE TOMORROW IF YOU CONTINUE TO STAY IN THE SAME PLACE AS TODAY’
We all have our own story. We have our shadows. We have our demons. We have our chaos. For some, we are able to bury our heads, grit our teeth and tread the water.
But without recognising the messages, the wake up calls and isolation can manifest- poor health, disease, weight gain, depression, low self esteem, fatigue, loneliness, addiction, relationship breakdowns, or job loss. More of us men are in this place than we realise.
This is why the XSQUAD is here. Together, in a safe, nonjudgmental environment, XSQUAD provides the opportunity for us men to discard beliefs, behaviours and standards that no longer serve us, pick up the pen and rewrite our story. Improving not only in fitness, but mental and emotional health as well.
The experiences I have shared with these men thus far has touched me- both in helping them, but also in helping me!
I can’t wait to do it all over again. Nov 2

O açúcar em excesso no sangue ocasiona diversas fatores que colocam nossas vidas em risco, além de contribuir para o ganho de peso, tornando você obeso ou acima do peso.
Fazer exercícios de musculação é a saída totalmente interessante para que você possa alcançar seus objetivos.
Em 2005 um estudo mostrou que pessoas que fizeram musculação 3x na semana tiveram uma melhora em sua sensibilidade à insulina, tornando assim mais fácil a retirada do açúcar do sangue! Isso não é maravilhoso?
Por tanto, se você de fato quer ter saúde, acrescentar musculação em sua rotina mesmo que 2 ou 3 vezes na semana é algo inteligente a se fazer! Marca aqui uma pessoa que precisa saber dessa informação!
‼️THE 5 EXERCISES TO MASTER BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE‼️
You heard correct. Before you try to attempt your PRs, heavy anything or something you saw @athleanx do.

𝟏. 𝐏𝐔𝐋𝐋 𝐔𝐏𝐒: I don’t think I can count on my hand the people I know who can blast out 20 pull ups I’m one set. Not saying that what you have to do, but if you are feeling like your back or even pull strength is low, you definitely aren’t doing pull ups. This will help a ton on your level of grip as well.
𝟐. 𝐏𝐔𝐒𝐇 𝐔𝐏𝐒: the steak and potatoes of upper body movements. If you can’t perform 10 perfect push ups, you are lacking major strength endurance that can translate into huge gains in your lifts.
𝟑. 𝐀𝐈𝐑 𝐒𝐐𝐔𝐀𝐓𝐒: my 70 & even 80 year old clients love this move. The mobility and strength it takes to squat your own body low and slow improves way more than your legs. Remember “Life Alert”? Think of this as the alternative.
𝟒. 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐤: sick of crunches and ridiculous ab movements that make you feel weak? Then stop! And do more planks. You can get a rock hard set of abs just holding this exercise for at least 1min. Start with 60 seconds and build up to George Hood, who lives in Naperville, Illinois, he showed off his core strength with a record-setting 10-hour plank.
𝟓. 𝐂𝐫𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬: now if you want to crunch, this is the one exercise to do. Notice in video my elbows touch the floor, then touch my knees. This really helps your abs contract in a full range of motion.
𝐆𝐎𝐀𝐋: perform 5-10 reps of each exercise and build up to 20. For the plank, start with 20 seconds and build up to 1 minute.

Funny fact: Sometimes at major golf tournaments, when a bee comes at me, I run around until it flies away (which sometimes takes a couple minutes) and convince the girls I’m playing with that I’m allergic. I’m not allergic. I’m just deathly terrified of bugs that sting. (IM SORRY!)
Can’t believe how much can change in one year! On the left is my progress so far without a leg pump and the right is one year ago after killing a glute workout! I make it a point to make time for the gym everyday, even after a round of 18 holes or a shift at work or a full day of classes. I have a great deal of admiration for people who do the same and feel truly humbled by those who care for families and still take the time to go to the gym! Wanna get in shape? I’m more than happy to answer questions and direct you to the right group of people in pursuit of your weight loss/muscle building journey!
