New Fitness Toy: The World’s 1st Weighted Compression Gear

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Titin Tech. 

 Boost Your Workout AND Results

Titin Tech Shirt► Higher Lactate Threshold
► Increased Vertical Leap
► Increase in Endurance
► Increase in Caloric Burn
► Increase in Running Speed

Steve and I recently discovered a killer fitness tool to boost performance and calorie burn that will bring any workout to a whole new level. It’s the world’s ONLY weighted compression shirt called Titin. No bulky vests or attachments. You don’t have to hold onto anything or clip into anything – your hands are completely free and you are totally comfortable to do whatever you want to to in or out of the gym!

Versatile • Comfortable • Effective

TITIN shirtTitin compression clothing is simply a heavier version of a second skin – especially awesome for athletes and fitness enthusiasts (HUGE with CrossFitters & athletes) who want to boost performance. The Titin shirt distributes weight evenly all over the body. Since the weight is in your shirt, you can increase the intensity of exercises you normally can’t change like burpees, mountain climbers, plyos, sprinting and jumping.

Not only can Titin clothing boost your workouts, the pliable weighted gel inserts can be heated or frozen to stay hot or cold for 35-45 minutes.

BIG SALE: Reebok Nano 2.0s (& Shoe Tips for Pain-Free Workouts)

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

crossfit nano 2.0Out of all my Reebok shoes, the Nano 2.0s are still some of my favorite kicks of all time. The way the look, the way they feel, the way they perform – nothing compares. They are one of the few pair of tennis shoes that look great in the gym, but also look awesome with jeans, shorts and even capris.

I have so many people ask me about my nanos, but one of the common responses is they are never on sale. So I made a pact to tell you when they ARE!!

Today only, you can get your own pair of Reebok CrossFit Nano 2.0 in Nacho Orange (V51721) for just $55! These exact shoes are the last Nanos I purchased myself and I paid full price I might add! 

crossfit nano 2.0I should warn you. This item is limited in stock, and the sale only lasts one day, May 29th, so be sure to hurry and grab yours! Have fun shopping!!!

  ► Use Promo Code: NANO55

What’s a Nano? Nanos are not a running shoe, they are a cross-training shoe that are awesome for lifting, doing plyos, short sprints (or shorter runs), rope climbing and body weight exercises. These shoes ROCK!

Are Your Shoes Hurting You?

running painDid you know getting the wrong shoes can cause all kinds of odd body pain?

You can have knee issues, calf issues, painful ankles, hip pain and foot pain – all because you bought the wrong shoe for you OR you are wearing the right shoe for the wrong exercise! If you experience muscle or joint pain, the first thing you should try to try another pair of shoes. Whether they are old, or they just aren’t the right type of shoe for you (or the exercise), some pains can be eliminated simply by changing shoes!

Butt & Delt Live X Power Blitz

How to do this compound workout: This workout uses several different exercises combined together in one fluid (compound) movement. NOTE: Click on the exercises to watch video demonstration of each movement.

butt and shoulder workout

Tools: Dumbbell or Kettlebell

Before you pick up your weight, do 5 burpees. Grab the dumbbell and get ready to work! The compound movement starts with a clean (bringing the dumbbell from the floor to the shoulder), then with the weight on the shoulder go down into a squat, return to stand and go right into a 1-arm shoulder press (keeping the dumbbell overhead), then immediately to an overhead step-back lunge (with dumbbell still overhead with active shoulder), return to stand, bring dumbbell down and back to the ground to begin the whole sequence again for the 2nd rep. After 10 full reps are complete, stay standing on that last round and pump out 15 1-Arm shoulder presses. Feeeel the burrrrn!! 🙂

This is what it looks like on paper…

RIGHT ARM:
5 Burpees
10 Clean + Squat + Shoulder Press + Overhead Step Back Lunge
15 1-Arm Press

LEFT ARM:
5 Burpees
10 Clean + Squat + Shoulder Press + Overhead Step Back Lunge
15 1-Arm Press

3 ROUNDS
(6 total rounds, 3 on each side)

2 Biggest Fitness & Diet Mistakes

insanity#1 INSANITY – The first big mistake is doing what Albert Einstein defines as insanity – Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” As ridiculous as this may seem, people do it all the time. They workout for YEARS with absolutely no change. I understand this problem because many people simply don’t know what to do different – but the next mistake…oh my!

#2 STUPIDITY – (Please forgive me using the word “stupid” but I’m not pointing the finger – I’ve done it too). The second biggest mistake is (to me) the dumbest one of all. It’s when you get an amazing result with one formula – and then you try a new formula expecting the same result. This person KNOWS how to get success – but they keep searching for an easier way. Or, they keep trying to find someone who will tell them what they want to hear, ultimately wasting precious time they could be just doing what they know already works.

We are going to dig DEEP into this one because this one is the most unnecessary mistake of all.

Wash, Rinse & Repeat

best shape of your lifePeople often say  “I was in the best shape of my life when I __________”. They tell me they used to compete, they used to play sports, they used to do boot camp or they used to run… What I want to know is this: If you were in the best shape of your life when you “use to _________”, why aren’t you doing it now?

I often see this after boot camp. We get someone in the best shape of their life in our BCx Boot Camp program, and then they quit or start something new. I understand change is good, HOWEVER, if it’s not KEEPING you in the that state of being “the best shape of my life” maybe you need to rethink your fitness plan.

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It?

Quit trying to fix something that wasn’t broken to begin with. You did something that worked, now do it again.

Sadly, people want to try to do as little as possible in hopes of getting the same result as doing as much as they have in the past. We do the same with eating. We see how much crap we can eat and get away with without gaining weight – and we normally fail.

You get OUT what you put IN. You can’t expect to gain muscle running. You can’t expect to burn serious calories lifting weights. You can’t expect amazing conditioning when you never tax your heart and lunges. And you can’t expect to easily pass up a donut if your workout was easy, because we all know the harder we work, the more protective over our calories we become.

BCx Boot Camp

Programs, like Boot Camps and sports conditioning (like CrossFit), combine different exercise methods to work strength, stamina and cardio all in one workout – as well as we make it tough enough that you think twice about blowing your hard work on crappy food choices. It’s all in the design of our programming – and the same goes with having a personal trainer, training for a show or doing other intense style training programs.

I’m not saying our BCx Boot Camp program is the only program to deliver results. (Here’s a sample of what someone can do in 6 weeks of Boot Camp.) What I’m saying is, unless you continue that same intensity of training with the same type of dieting that once delivered you amazing results, you can’t try something totally different, or cut back, and expect the same result.

It doesn’t mean you have to workout 6 days a week and beat your body up the way you might have to lose weight and get in shape, but once you hit maintenance, you shouldn’t just quit – and unfortunately, that’s exactly what people do. They join a gym and do a program for 4-6 weeks and then you never see them again.

You should be in “get fit mode” or “stay fit mode” – never just “off”. 

If you have been missing the fitter version of you, I encourage you to think back to what you were doing when you felt your best – and just simply repeat it. There’s no need to try something new. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
