"Take heavy Sh** and lift it over your head!!"

Hey Everyone,
You never know what tomorrow holds... I am definitely a schedule guy. I like to know what I am doing and when I am doing it well before I actually do it. These past two weeks has been a great test for me to see how well I can manage off of my normal schedule? We all have unexpected challenges that occur throughout our lives and how you handle those challenges, I believe, comes from preparation and planning. Over the past couple of weeks I have had to mix in unexpected travel with expected travel, while rescheduling and juggling my client load to help accommodate my wife's travel schedule. As is life as a dad, husband, and a fitness professional. I know that I am preaching to the choir, but despite all the craziness in my schedule I have been able to eat well (healthy), and stay consistent with my workouts. All thanks to proper planning and execution.

Here are a couple of workouts and tips I have heard and done over the past week.

Tip #1: The secret to fitness results"Take heavy shit and lift it over your head" Thomas Plummer..... sounds pretty simple

Tip #2: "The 5,4,3,2,1, rule" Brett Klika (Fitness Quest 10)
5- Have 5 small meals a day.
4- Have a least 4 pints of water per day (more if you are an athlete)
3- eat every 3 hours.
2- Look at the ingredients in your food. There should be no more than 2 ingredients.
