On today’s vlog episode of Live Lean TV, Jessica and I share a 45 minute full body beast mode workout at the gym.
In Live Lean Life Vlog Ep. 027 I share:
To start the day, I took my dog Bruno for our morning walk, then I made his breakfast.
To make Bruno’s breakfast, rather than using traditional dog food that is usually full of corn, soy, and wheat, we’ve been testing to see how he reacts to eating real human grade dog food comprised of protein and vegetables.
We’ve been buying the ground beef in bulk, however we are considering switching to buying hamburger patties made with just ground beef.
Here’s how we make Bruno’s homemade dog food:
Sounds like a familiar process to how humans should be making food, right?
If we are doing this for a dog, it means you should be doing it for your own body too.
It’s hard to believe, but Jessica and I went out in public together, without a baby stroller beside us.
As new parents, we were really excited to be out and free.
We are very fortunate that grandpa is here, and is up for the challenge of babysitting Kyla and Bruno, while we go to the gym.
I must say, my Nike Metcons sneakers and Jessica’s kicks were on point today.
Also, looking at the lean and strong physique of the women who gave birth to my daughter, it’s astonishing that she is only 3 months postpartum.
I am one lucky guy.
However, when it comes to Jessica’s physique, luck didn’t have anything to do with it.
During her pregnancy, she worked hard and kept her nutrition on point.

For today’s gym workout, we’re going through a Team Live Lean workout from the Lean Warrior program.
This full body workout is called Beast Mode.
Every workout includes demonstration videos for every single exercise.
When you join our workout app, you’ll get access to all of our workouts in your pocket.
Complete all the reps of each move one time in circuit format.
The first warm up exercise are wall slides.
The second warm up exercise is the standing medicine ball woodchopper.
The third warm up exercise is the kneeling medicine ball leg extension, also known as the Matrix.
The fourth warm up exercise is the spiderman lunge.
This is a straight sets workout.
Complete all the reps and sets of each exercise before moving on to the next exercise.
Rest 40 seconds between each set.
* Complete the indicated number of rounds based on your fitness level:
The first exercise is the alternating barbell pendulum lunge.
The second exercise is the barbell deadlift.
The third exercise is the seated barbell overhead press.
The fourth exercise is the standing high pulley overhead cable triceps extension with rope.
The warrior challenge of the day is the Twisting Forearm Plank.
At the end of the workout, complete the following stretching and mobility exercises in circuit format.
The first cool down move is the foam roller hamstring massage.
The second cool down move is the foam roller IT band outer thigh massage.
The third cool down move is the foam roller quadriceps massage.
The last cool down move is the foam roller calf massage.
That was the Beast Mode workout.
This workout only took approximately 45 minutes, therefore it’s not a major time commitment.
If you have access to weights you can also do this workout at home.
If you are a member of Team Live Lean, this workout has been available for a few weeks, so hopefully you have already completed it.
However, if you have tried it yet, now is a good time to start.
Regardless of your fitness level, anyone you can do this workout.
Do the following to make the workout easier or harder.
If you don’t know how many sets is going to suit your current fitness level, start with two sets.
After 2 sets, if you don’t feel overly fatigued, you can add a third set, then possibly a fourth set.
The point is, if you are unsure, don’t feel like you have to commit to a certain number of sets at the beginning.
If any of these moves feel too challenging for you, use:
Simply ask us how to do an easier modification of an exercise and we’d be happy to answer that question for you.
Even though these workouts are supposed to be challenging to get you results, we don’t want them to be too challenging so you are too intimidated to do it.
As you get better, we will have a workout to challenge you at whatever level you’re at.
Now that we are finished at the gym, we are walking home, while I’m drinking a Kill Cliff recovery drink.
My friends at Kill Cliff sent me a few cans to try.
If you love drinking soda, but want to reduce sugar intake and eliminate soda from your life, try Kill Cliff.
Kill Cliff is a carbonated drink that tastes just like soda, without the sugar.
Jessica thinks it’s tasty and legitimately tastes like soda.
She also likes the bubbles.
We prefer soda alternatives since soda is too sugary.
It also contains green tea which provides 25mg of caffeine.
This provides you with a little pick me up of energy.
Check out this blog post where I did a Kill Cliff review.
Jessica asked me where the name “Kill Cliff” came from.
After doing a little research online, and shared the answer in this blog post.
Once I finish this, I will be home and ready to crush some food.
Since I’m still on my fast, I’m looking forward to ending my fast with this post workout Superfood Maca Powder Smoothie Recipe.
We’re also excited to see our baby Kyla.
Once we got to our condo building, there was a big line up across the street at a pancake restaurant.
This made me want to get some post workout pancakes.
I need food badly.
