TALL KNEELING OVER HEAD PRESS!

_

My all time favorite Over Head Press is to train in it from the Half Kneeling position!

_

Here are the Highlights of training this fundamental pattern:

  • On Knees/Torso Tight/Glutes Tight
  • Tight Grip on Kettlebell
  • Fist Below Chin at the start of each rep
  • Drive Straight Up
  • Elbow Locked Out and Biceps near Ear.
  • On the way down, use the Lat and Pull the weight down to a tight Lat.

_

The Tall Kneeling Over Head Press is a staple in my Circuit Shred 8 Week Program!

_

Did you know…Right now the Circuit Shred & all online training programs are 50% off through March 31, 2020. Use code COVID19 at checkout and purchase!!  LINK HERE to purchase!

_

The Circuit Shred is based upon a circuit program I wrote for myself to get stronger, leaner & move better. As of a result of the Circuit Shred program I gained 2.2 pounds of muscle & lost 2% body fat in 8 weeks (measured via an InBody Composition Analyzer).

_

By the end of the program I was Over Head Pressing 32kg (70.4lbs) for an easy 5 reps on both R & L sides in tall kneeling.

_

The conditioning made me a lean machine like never before.  I also built swing strength relative to the program, e.g, 28kg (61.6lbs) became very easy to swing for multiple sets of 25 reps and 32kg (70.4lbs) became very easy to swing for multiple sets of 15/20 reps.

_

I felt great throughout the program, like a lean, mean, kick ass machine,& I know you will too!

_

This program is an intermediate level 5-days per week, 8-week program.

_

As the program progresses over 8 weeks you will become very proficient with the movements & the time of work and rest will begin to change as your strength & fitness improves. The change in work to rest ratios is the challenge of the program.

Avocado: FREE MASTER CLASS on FODMAPS TODAY @ 4pm PST

_

Did you know that eating over a 1/4 or 1/5oz of Avocado could upset your stomach and gut?

_

Avocado has a natural sugar alcohol called Sorbitol.

_

Sorbitol is a Polyol & over consumption of this natural sugar substitute could upset your stomach and gut.  Most likely give you a serious case of lead stomach!

_

You know…that feeling of having a piece of lead in your stomach, a heavy uncomfortable feeling.

_

Sorbitol is poorly & incompletely absorbed by most humans in the small intestine.  Moderation is the key.

_

Polyol are the “P” in FODMAP.

_

FODMAPs are short-chain carbs in our foods that are rapidly fermented & can be poorly absorbed.

_

I’m not saying avocado is bad for you, in fact it could work well in a balanced whole food nutrition plan.

_

What I am throwing down here is the importance of food rotation & MODERATION!

_

Don’t eat the same foods 5x a day.  Rotate the goods & your gut will be much happier 🙂

_

Come to my Master Class on FODMAPs and Gut Health!  Seriously…its free!

Cashews: FREE MASTER CLASS on FODMAPS 2/24/20 @ 4pm PST

_

Did you know eating over 10 cashews could be causing some stomach and GI issues?

_

Cashews are a legume NOT a tree nut.

_

Cashews fall in the ‘O’=  of F’O’DMAP

_

Oligo-saccharides = Fructans(FOS) & Galacto-oligosaccarides(GOS)

_

FOS & GOS is a longer chain sugar that humans do not have the enzymes to digest.  NOW…some FOS & GOS is good.  It can help with the good bacteria in you gut.  BUT…moderation is the key.

_

FODMAPs are short-chain carbs in our foods that are rapidly fermented & can be poorly absorbed.

BUCKWHEAT: SOBA NOODLES: FREE MASTER CLASS on FODMAPS 2/24/20 @ 4pm PST

_

Did you know that Buckwheat (SOBA Noodles) is a FODMAP friendly carb?  Just make sure you get 100% buckwheat!

_

That’s right! Buckwheat is a seed, therefore it’s a green light when following a FODMAP plan.  It’s also gluten free since buckwheat is made from a seed.

_

FODMAPs are short-chain carbs in our foods that are rapidly fermented & can be poorly absorbed.

_

Buckwheat & SOBA noodles, in fact can work well in a balanced whole food nutrition plan.

_

My Master class is not all about what you CAN’T have.  It’s about teaching you what you can have while working on a FODMAP.

_

What I am throwing down here is FODMAP is NOT a forever plan.

_

Ultimately FODMAP is not a forever plan.  It’s a plan to get better acquainted with your belly and gut!
