Friday Morning Hangover Cure

Back when I was about 25 and stupid, I used to go out late at night on Thursday and then get up early on Friday to train clients. Bad idea jeans.

Eventually I found a hangover cure. Stop drinking. It worked!

Now here's what ol' man Ballantyne does on Friday morning.

After an hour dog walk, I start with a morning blender drink:

2c almond milk, 1 banana, frozen blueberries, spinach, Garden of Life raw vegetarian protein powder, Athletic Greens powder, sprouted chia and flax powder, and cinnamon. I also had some raw almonds and walnuts.

Then I hit the gym.

Today's Workout:

1A) Pushups (5x25)
1B) Pullups (5x7)

2A) Dips (5x12)
2B) Chins (5x5)

3A) Bodyweight Row with Rings (4x8)
3B) Bodyweight Triceps Extension with Rings (4x8)

ATD (After Training Drink): Almond milk, chocolate almond milk, 1 banana, frozen raspberries, unsweetened organic whey protein.

Today's resource from top NYC Trainer and soon to be WORLD FAMOUS trainer, John Romaniello:

As my friend Vince Del Monte would say, "Who is John Romaniello? What is John Romaniello? Where is John Romaniello?", here's the answer in John's Perfect Day of Fat Loss:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset tip:

Seek opportunity, not security. In order to succeed, we often need to try new things. Venture outside your comfort zone to find the answers you seek.

Get seeking,

Blended combination of raw foods is a great solution for people who think about the tediousness of eating and chewing all that raw food! Apart from cutting or chopping, the process is really quick and you can get several Raw Foods at Once!

Do you think that doing the hour walk before giving your body some food will cause some catabolism? Wouldn't the drink be better before the walk so you have something to use for energy instead of breaking down the muscles? Thanks.

The yoga apparel must be very comfortable and loose for easy movement. A t -shirts and a loose-fit short are basic yoga apparel which will keep you fresh and comfortable.
