No magic nutrition tips

My training today: Squats, Jumps, Glute Ham Raise, Torso training. Bike ride to and from gym. Pre-training dog walk.

Legs are tired.

Here's a simple circuit I gave to a client yesterday: Box Jumps, Sprinter Step-ups, Stability Ball Leg Curls, Spiderman Pushups, Kettlebell Swings.

Oh, and for TT Platinum Members, I've updated the site with the new TT Xtreme Deeper Depletion program. It's the bonus I've giving away for the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet Release on May 1st. But Platinum members get it free and early.

Over on, during today's QnA, lots of folks were looking for magic answers to their nutrition questions.

But I have none because there are none.

Nutrition in 7 words: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." - Michael Pollan

CLA is a waste of money. Whey protein is whey protein is whey protein. Creatine is creatine is creatine. There's no magic pre-workout foods unless you need 100mg of caffeine.



Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
"Instead of putting others down, try improving yourself instead. The only person you have a right to compete with is YOU. In the meantime, treat others how you'd like to be treated. One trait that some of the best (communicators) share is EMPATHY. A couple of kind words can not only make a person's day, but earn you a friend and supporter for life. For the rest of the week, whenever you see someone you want to judge negatively, pay them a compliment instead. See what happens." – Neil Strauss

PS - By 5:51am I had finished two 1000 word essays in 75 minutes of "Magic Time". Your magic time is when you get THREE times as much work done as you would in any other time of day. Identify and protect this time.
