Halloween Faux Monkey Brains Recipe:
It'd been a "Monday" for sure, and a friend of mine was definitely up for a challenge so we headed out to the park a good bit later than originally intended, but that's ok. I'm not opposed to occasionally (or somewhat often) working out somewhat late at night. Hince the silly owl graphic there on the left.
This workout was heavily influenced and inspired by Zach Even-Esh's Encyclopedia of Underground Strength and Conditioning... there was a fair amount of modifcation, but I've found that the structure of his workouts and what I'm aiming for are often very wonderfully aligned. Besides, if you're in a situation where you don't want to (or can't) purchase much or any fitness equipment, then Zach's book is for you. There's a whole chapter on training with ROCKS for goodness sake (I love training with weird stuff like that... and rock stacking is also fun too... but that's for another blog post). That being said it was the kind of night to go tear it up in the park a little bit, and I wanted to work on some specific things too... which will be pretty obvious below:
Four ingredients make for a celebration of easy green beans! Complete instructions here...
Hurrah for the great weather this past weekend! Even though I got a lot of work done, I wanted to be sure to enjoy the outdoors a bit too. A lot of cooking was done (new simple recipe for you this week) and if you see the recipe I posted over the weekend, you might see where some of the extra energy came from.
Having recently purchased my friend's unlocked iPhone5s, it was time to **FINALLY** do the Under Armour Armour39 assessment (because I wasn't about to run around a track during the "all out" portion while carrying an iPad). (Want to just skip to the workout? Click here instead.) I'd long sense questioned the validity of that old "220 minus age" = estimated HR max, even before the more recent info about the not-so-good science it was based on came out. Apparently according to some scientists, HRmax can be highly individual and even among elite athletes somewhat wide ranging.
This special spice rub allows me to combine to of my favorite things in the world to consume... espresso and grass fed beef. Unless you're planning on staying up late, this might be best for lunch. We all metabolize caffeine differently, so please eat this at your own risk.
This seasoning mix was originally inspired by what I consider to be the "ultimate breakfast seasoning" which is an espresso steak rub from The Spice and Tea Exchange. With a 4-6oz grassfed sirloin steak it pretty much makes for a breakfast that would make Ron Swanson proud--even without bacon!
