Aaaaawwww #tumeric and #ginger root!! 👏👏👏
These magical roots will do wonders for your immune system. I prefer to juice them and add a bit of black pepper on top (this helps with absorption rate). 💪
I have been working on getting most of my nutrients from real whole food sources rather than taking supplements or foods “fortified” with vitamins and minerals. Our bodies don’t absorb most of those types of nutrients. Just because you are in taking them doesn’t mean your body is absorbing them and using them. This can actually be doing more harm than good! 😣
Although I do take supplements and there is a time and place for them...this shouldn’t be the main source of how you get your nutrients. Eat real whole food for optimal heath! 🙏💪

This is what cutting looks like if you are disciplined for a year! I’m still amazed I did this! With the help and guidance from my sister! Fuck I’m so damn proud of myself man! 245lb-184.2lb 😳😳😳 😍! Also went back to and graduated as well! This year has been a good year so far! #healthyboiiz #getitrightgetittight #gymrat #transformationtuesday

370 bench from RPS Raw Dog National meet August 11. I am reposting this because at first I felt like a failure. But this was good. I had a complete pec tear and ruptured tendon in 2016 , I came back at 44 after I was told never again by my surgeon, my wife and my friends did a good job of putting that into perspective for me. Of course if you are sane person it just seems stupid. 400+ in competition is happening in December come hell or high water. #powerliftingmotivation #benchpress #pectear #instafit #instapowerlifting #instalike #power #muscle #gymrat #motivation #driven #swole #girlswholift #fitfam #powerlifter #powerbuilding #gymflow #gymlife #heathens #wotan #mjolnir #irishamerica #irishmuscle @michellejenna2 @quadsimodo181 @jr_unfit @the.fake.swole @eddiemeat @nforte_242 @smith.machine93 @just___kt @reakoh @aliistone @kjvandal @kune_dawg @k__mack

Heyyyyy Instagram! It's me 💁🏼 I'm coming at you with a sneak peak of what's going to be in my YouTube video. This is a smith machine warm up that I did (credits to @sarahgracce). She did this as a full workout but I lightened up the weight a bit and made it my leg day warm up and oooooo did it feel good 🔥of course, don't forget to stretch. But here's the workout:
1. Sumo squats (my first time! It felt great)
2. Chair squads
3. Seated thrusts
4. Romanian dead lifts (I didn't use the smith for this but you can!) I did about 3x12 on each exercise. Now that I've been working in an office everyday it's especially important to fire up your glutes and legs before your workout. It will definitely wake them up and you can look forward to faster and better results plus no injuries!
Also, apologies for the mans legs but I had to put this under the drinking fountain and I didn't think so many people would decide that they're thirsty when I was trying to record lol it's all good. Hope you enjoy!!

✖️MIND & BUILD ✖️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius once joked that no one ever came to grief “ignoring what goes on in other people’s souls.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simply saying that if you want to reduce the amount of stress and worry in your life, mind your own business.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because every one of us wastes far too much time thinking about, commenting on, other people’s intentions, other people, PERIOD.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As if what they do or think on the daily is of our concern....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I admit that I have invested far too much time, worry, and effort on others, and such has left me with very little for my own.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not that all of this is intrusive and outside the “circle of control”, it’s that while we’re doing such, we’re not doing something else.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Something for ourselves.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For our own soul.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“If you don’t keep track of your own souls doing,” Marcus asks, “how can you not be unhappy?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The key is to minding your own business, getting your nose out of other people’s and sticking it where it belongs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Turn around the relentless effort you give to others, and direct it towards yourself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sniff out the inconsistencies, find out where you can be better, where you are falling short, and take action starting NOW.

This week's menu!💥
_
White chocolate protein oats for breakfast topped with fresh picked blueberries. (Scoop of cookies and cream protein powder in my coffee which isn't shown.)
_
Steamed green beans, baked sweet potatoes and BBQ shrimp for lunch.
_
Vanilla oikos yogurt topped fresh picked blueberries for my afternoon snack.
_
Baked salmon, quinoa and fresh garden lettuce topped with Greek dressing for supper.
_
Then my favorite smoothie to finish the day. This all adds up to 1800 calories; 158g Protein, 158g Carbs and 60g Fat. Your meals don't have to be boring, incorporate what you want to eat! That's the beauty of IIFYM.👌
