Experimenting with Hemp Juice

Trying to cut back on my almond milk intake and mix in some Hemp bliss/juice/beverage/milk (or whatever you want to call it). Doing so for variety and because Hemp juice does have a better nutrient profile.

Today's Workout: Big old man warm-up. Hang Clean, Sumo Deadlift, Rack Pull, side planks.

There was also another guy at the gym, about my age, former athlete, doing his own version of the old-man warmup. It was like we were having a competition to see who could warm-up the longest. He won.

My old man warm-up is here:


This was followed by 16oz Hemp juice blended with a banana and chocolate Biosteel recovery drink. I can tolerate the hemp juice if it's mixed with a few things, but not solely with regular protein powder. Now for a dog walk in the rain.

And here's a quick interval training tip I posted yesterday on my FB page:

For measuring interval training...
6/10 = regular cardio
10/10 = running for your life
Therefore, do your intervals between 8-9/10.

Here's to a great week of growth. Stay strong and get stronger.

This week, I encourage you to take action on that "thing" that you have been meaning to do for so long. "Eat that frog", as Brian Tracy says. Get it done. Procrastinate no longer.
