On today’s vlog episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing a leg workout from Live Lean MASS 2.0, some morning wisdom, and a delicious turkey meatballs recipe.
In Live Lean Life Vlog Ep. 037 I share:
Good morning everybody, what’s up?
Kyla and I are in a great mood because she slept good last night.
Before I go to the gym, I first want to share a funny story.
This created a weird mixture of flavors, which made me think back to when I first started my health journey.
Back in 2007, I was taking this unsweetened greens powder supplement, that had a green grassy flavor.
However, I wouldn’t mix it with juice because I had a mindset shift where I wanted to challenge myself to do something hard in the morning.
I thought if I can get up in the morning and drink this unsweetened greens powder drink, I can accomplish anything in my day.
Yes, it tasted that bad.
Drinking that greens powder and pre-workout powder mixture this morning reminded me of that that story.
This is a good story for you to think about.
I believe you should crush the most important thing in your day, first thing in the morning.
I first learned about this concept after reading a book from Brian Tracy called, Eat That Frog.
If there is something you need to get done, but you keep putting it off, crush that thing first in the morning.
Then everything else in your day just becomes easier.
There is a little morning wisdom for you before I hit the gym.
I’m currently working on day 3 from my 42 day Live Lean MASS 2.0 muscle building workout program.
Since it’s leg day, it’s time to put this leg workout to the test.
Before I get started, I want to show you a few simple tools that I bring to the gym:
On cold days I like wearing compression tights to keep my muscles and joints warm for optimal performance.
Today’s workout was just a screenshot on my phone of the workout on a spreadsheet, rather than inside our workout app.
When I filmed this, I was still designing and testing the workouts.
You can now get the full Live Lean MASS 2.0 program inside our workout app.
That way you can always have your workout plan with you.
Before we get to the squatting portion of the workout, the Live Lean MASS 2.0 program first has you completing activation sets.
These activation sets are designed to warm up and get the blood flowing to the targeted muscles.
That way the muscles can contract properly under heavier loads.
After completing the activation sets, it’s time to move onto the big compound lifts.
Superset A is comprised of:
Superset B is comprised of:
Superset C is comprised of:
Superset D is comprised of:
Thank you for joining me on that leg workout.

Now it’s time to go back home to put together my post workout protein shake.
Since it was a leg workout, and I’m feeling really tired right now, sometimes I will use orange juice in my post workout shake.
However, I don’t go too crazy with the amount.
I’ll usually put a cup of orange juice in the blender, then fill the rest with water.
This orange juice provides my body with a quick source of sugar to really help replenish the lost glycogen from that tough leg workout.
In addition to the orange juice, I’m also going to do add some protein powder to it (use 25% off coupon code: LiveLeanTV25).
After I drink my protein shake, it’s time to get in the shower, clean up, then eat some whole foods, for example turkey, to refuel my hungry body.
It’s time to grub up.
This is the meal that’s on deck for today.
It’s similar variation of the big ass salad:
After eating, it’s time to set up the set to film another episode of #AskLiveLeanTV.
The work hustle just doesn’t stop.
We’re cranking out a lot of content to help you with your journey, so hopefully you are enjoying it.
I also keep my TRX straps up in the living room so I can continue to work on my goal of strengthening and improving my shoulder mobility.
After that, I’m going to go out for a walk with Kyla and Bruno, while Jessica puts together another meal from Sunbasket.
That’s right, Jessica is the chef tonight, while I take care of the kids.
This Sunbasket recipe is called Gingered Turkey Meatballs In Lemongrass Broth With Cauliflower Rice.
Kyla said the food looked so good, she was going to eat with us, and pass on her booby milk diet.
Even though I usually cook the Sunbasket meals, Jess did such a good job making this Gingered Turkey Meatballs In Lemongrass Broth dinner.
It looks delicious.
While Jess was posting a video of the Sunbasket meal to our @LiveLeanTV Instagram stories, I was ready to dig in and eat.
Since Kyla was busy staring at herself in the mirror, I think she is going to let us eat in peace tonight.
As you can see, her cute hair is starting to grow out.
I’m sure she was thinking, “damn, I’m good looking”.
It’s a little too early for narcissism 😂.
She just loves looking at herself in the mirror.
All right, it’s time to take a bite.
Oh my god, this is so ridiculously good.
You know when you just want to like make love to your dinner, that’s what we’re feeling right now!

Since Jessica cooked dinner, that means she is making me clean all the dishes, while Kyla runs into the dishwasher.
A man’s job is never done 😂.
