Today’s Breakfast

This mornings quick and simple breakfast is comprised of:

I usually add chicken or ground beef to my eggs, but I didn’t have any defrosted.

This is an example of how I’m not always prepared with my meals.

However, you have to make the best of it.

I also had my morning AG1 greens drink.

Is Salt Bad For You?

I should also mention that a lot of people don’t add salt and pepper, or other spices to their food, especially salt.

Salt, including sea salt, is good for you, especially when you’re following the Live Lean style way of eating.

This includes primarily making your own meals from whole foods, rather than eating processed food.

When cooking with whole foods, you should be adding herbs, spices, and seasonings to it to make it taste even better.

The problem with salt comes from over consuming processed food, since it is filled with sodium.

People overdo it with sodium when they eat out at fast foods restaurants all the time, or they eat processed foods at home.

When you cook with real whole foods, you should be adding some salt to it for flavor.

How Can I Increase Electrolytes In My Body?

Adding salt to whole foods is healthy, especially when you drink a lot of water, because salt is an electrolyte.

Avoiding salt is a mistake a lot of people make when they first start Living Lean.

They think it’s healthy to avoid salt.

However by avoiding salt, it could actually negatively impact you from an electrolyte standpoint, especially if you are eating really clean food, without adding salt to it, and drinking a ton of water.

By drinking a lot of water, you are at a higher risk of flushing all the electrolytes out of your body, thus depleting your electrolyte levels, and causing your energy levels to go down.

You need to make sure you’re consuming enough electrolytes to keep your body in balance.

Adding salt to your whole foods is one way to do it.

What Are The Three Main Electrolytes?

Another way to increase your consumption of electrolytes is to supplement with an electrolyte powder.

electrolyte powder

I’ve been using an electrolyte powder called BodyTech Electrolyte Fizz that you can get from Vitamin Shoppe.

During my workouts I’ll mix a packet of the lemon lime flavored Electrolyte Fizz in with my water.

Electrolyte powders will give you a combination of the 3 main electrolytes needed, including:

  • Potassium
  • Chloride
  • Sodium

In addition the 3 major electrolytes, Electrolyte Fizz also contains:

This is another electrolyte option for you.

With that said, let’s get this busy day started.

I’m excited for what’s to come.

Let’s go.

Daddy Daughter Time Before The Gym

Hey world, my name’s Kyla, go follow me on Instagram.

I think she is going to be a sprinter when she grows up.

Supplementing With L-Carnitine

Before I hit the gym, I’m going take a quick tablespoon of liquid L-carnitine.

If you’re not aware of what L-carnitine is, it’s been shown to help with brain function.

It basically clears your mind and keeps you focused on what’s to come.

Since I’m heading to the gym, it’s important for me to be focused on my workout.

L-carnitine also claims to help with fat metabolism by helping to free up the fatty acids in the body to be used for energy during your workout.

I’ve been drinking a tablespoon of this raspberry flavored Carnipure L-Carnitine from BodyTech.

l-carnitine

It tastes good.

I also have a cup of coconut water with it.

After that, I’ll have my pre-workout drink, then it’s time to go to the gym, while Jessica takes care of the baby, while working out at home.

Kyla loves to watch her mommy workout, while chewing on a sock.

It’s time for daddy to go burn some fat.

Metabolic Burn Complex Workout From Live Lean Afterburn 2.0

Today I’m doing a metabolic burn complex workout #1 from my Live Lean Afterburn 2.0 program.

This workout includes two complexes.

Complexes are a training style where there are no breaks between exercises.

This means you don’t even get to drop the barbell or dumbbell when transitioning to the next exercise.

Therefore, choose a weight for your most challenging exercise that you can handle for the prescribed rep count.

Remember, this weight will remain constant throughout the complex as it won’t leave your hands.

The workout is to be completed in a circuit format.

Begin by completing exercises A1, A2, A3, and A4 sequentially, with no rest between exercises.

Rest for 120 seconds after completing the circuit, then repeat it 3 more times.

This workout should only take you 30 minutes, however it’s going to kick your butt during it.

Barbell Complex A:

Sets: 4

Rest:

  • No rest between exercises within the complex.
  • 2 minute rest at the end of the complex.

After you complete the final set of complex A, move on to the “Ignite It Up” speed squat exercise, which is designed to further kick your butt.

Ignite It Up: Speed Squat x 30 seconds

After 2 sets, the sweat was pouring off my body.

If you sweat this much during the workout, this is when you could add electrolytes powder to your water.

Now that the first complex is done, rest for 60 seconds, then move on to the dumbbell complexes, following the same protocol.

Let’s get it.

Dumbbell Complex B

Sets: 4

Rest:

  • No rest between exercises within the complex.
  • 2 minute rest at the end of the complex.

The complex portion is now done.

Rest for 60 seconds before moving on to the 4 minute afterburner workout finisher.

Let’s get this done, then go home and replenish.

4 Minute Afterburner Workout Finisher

Perform exercise C1 for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, then move to C2 for 20 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest.

Repeat this pattern for exercises C3 and C4, then repeat the entire sequence one more time, for a total of 2 sets.

Sets: 2

Rest: 10 seconds between exercises

“Kyla Jane, Kyla Jane,

She cries and poops,

Life is good.

Supplementing With ZMA Before Bed

It’s about that time of night to get my last little bit of water into me before I call it a day.

Before I go to bed, I have been taking a supplement called ZMA Tech from BodyTech, which contains:

  • Zinc
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B6

ZMA Tech is designed to help promote deep sleep at night, which is so important to Living Lean.

After a night of deep sleep you are going to:

Based on this, I’ve been taking three capsules of ZMA Tech with water to help improve my sleep.
