Hey guys! I’m back!
My apologies for not updating my blog for so long. It’s time for more content!! Stay tuned for all new photos, videos, quotes, articles, recipes and workouts! I’m also gonna try and start doing some video blogs.
Keep up the training and hard work! I’ve actually been recovering from a shoulder injury so I’ve been set back quite a bit. I have new goals to make up for the time I’ve been away. I plan on getting back to where I was before and exceeding beyond that to new personal highs.
Such a great commercial. Dwayne Johnson is a beast.

Squats for bus fare?
If you guys saw this at the train station, would you do 30 squats to get a free ticket?
Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I’ve actually been injured for a while and just been recovering from my injury. I promise you i’ll be back soon!! I have tons of new goals which I can’t wait to share with you guys. This was just a quick video I made while doing some pull ups. My apologies for the bad video quality.
While moving some things one day, I decided to do a quick workout with my co-worker. We decided to do pull-ups at the back of the truck. There’s always somewhere you can do a quick workout. Look around you.
Health Benefits of a Banana
Children and adults alike love sweet, nutritious bananas. Since bananas come neatly packed in their own wrapper, they are very portable. They may be eaten in their whole form, sliced into fruit salad or mashed and added to muffin and bread recipes. Frozen bananas can be added to smoothies in place of yogurt or ice cream. A serving size is one peeled medium-sized banana, about 7 inches long.
By eating a banana you can Indulge your sweet tooth without ruining your diet. A banana averages about only 110 calories.
Fat and Cholesterol
Bananas are naturally fat and cholesterol free. Use mashed bananas to substitute for some or all of the butter or oil when making cookies, for example, for a healthier treat.
Bananas are known for their high potassium content, with over 400 mg potassium in a single medium-size banana. According to Colorado State University Extension, potassium is necessary for good nerve and muscle function as well as for maintaining a healthy balance of fluids in the body.

As with many fruits, bananas contain a good amount of vitamin C. One banana provides about 10 mg of vitamin C, or about 15 percent of your daily recommended amount. Vitamin C boosts your immune system and cell health and improves the absorption of other nutrients such as iron.

Bananas are a good source of manganese, with one medium banana providing about .3 mg. Adults need between 1.8 and 2.3 mg of manganese daily. Manganese is necessary for bone health and metabolism.
According to the USDA, one banana has about 3 g of fiber. Dietary fiber can help you feel fuller longer and also keep your digestive processes running smoothly.
Bananas also deliver small amounts of other vitamins and minerals. A banana provides some iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus as well as vitamins A and E, folate, carotene and choline. Bananas also contain trace amounts of many amino acids.
Your body uses carbohydrates as a primary source of energy. Eat a banana after a workout to refuel. A banana with breakfast will start your day off right and will give you the energy to make it through to lunch without snacking.
Bananas are easy to digest. When you’re sick with a virus or indigestion, bananas can be an appealing way to get some important nutrients into your system without upsetting your stomach. Mashed bananas are also often used as an introduction to solid foods for babies.
