Natural Pre-Workout Energy Boosting Supplement *CAFFEINE-FREE*

Are you ever hungry before you workout but don’t know what to eat?

If so, you’ll love what I’ve got in store for you today…

Trust me, I know the feeling. The gurgling and growling. The hunger pangs. I know it all too well.

Because if you’re hungry before a workout, you probably don’t want to eat something that’s going to slosh around in your stomach and weigh you down or give you cramps.

At the same time, you don’t want to go in hungry where your mind is more on what you’re going to eat rather than your training.

And, if you’re into natural foods and nutrition as opposed to  synthetic supplements like me, you’re going to love what I’ve got for you in this video:

 

Now I sent all YouTube peeps over to my wife’s site at TheDessertAngel.com, but as one of my “INSIDERS” I’m gonna hook you up with the recipe I was eating right here:

TROPICAL ZEST FROSTING
Recipe courtesy of my wife’s Dessert Angel Healthy Desserts Recipe Collection

]Ingredients
– 1/4 cup almond flour (ground almonds)
– 2 tsp honey
– 2 tsp coconut oil, liquified
– 1/4 tsp lemon zest
– 1 tbsp coconut milk
– 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions
1. Puree all ingredients
2. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until it hardens

This is the pure frosting recipe that is healthy and delicious on muffins, cakes, or even licked off of your finger.

To turn this into a super pre-workout energy supplement, take 1 tbsp of the frosting and mix it with 1 tbsp of pure extra virgin coconut oil and BOOM – instant energy and the benefits of all these healthy ingredients. Plus it’s damn tasty.

*** MUSCLEUP UPDATE ***

Today, I did 5 in a row. If you include the first one where I jump a little bit, then I did 6. Not bad – I’m improving, but I’ve got to get some gloves, because this happened:

Dammit – that was my favourite callus! 

Hope I didn’t spoil your appetite.

What do you think I should do – leave it be or rip that sucker off?

Let me know below. Oh and please hit that good ole ‘Like’ button on the way down, would ya?

I’ve been taking The Dr Max Powers BURN for a little bit (not done with the bottle yet) but I already like how it’s working. I feel an increased amount of energy that’s helping me get motivated to go to the gym (and stay there longer than 15 minutes) and I’m seeing the numbers on the scale dropping consistently.

It’s affordable, it arrived quickly, and I don’t experience any side effects from it. I drink at least 12-16oz of water in the morning when I take it before the gym. By the time I make it to the gym around 30 minutes later, I can feel my energy levels up and I’m much more alert than I used to be. After a 45 minute workout, I return home and eat a modest breakfast (eggs, oatmeal, or something similar) and proceed to get my regular day started.

Ouch! How about saline solution to clean it…that way it kills off the “bad” bacteria and preserves the “good” to keep infection away…topical stuff with some probiotic is also bonus

Muscle Ups are bossmode, good work! Just out of curiosity, are you using a false grip when you do them?

Eric
Eric

OK there’s some definite confusion about what the actual false grip is – in my opinion, the false grip is when your thumb is not wrapped around the bar.

In that case, yes I’m using a false grip.

Some people have been calling when you bend your wrists a false grip.

But to me, this does not make sense – what exactly is false about bending your wrists?

Brandon
Brandon

False grip is wrist wrapped around the rings with thumbs wrapped also. It’s the standard gymnastic’s grip:

Eric

Yeah that’s the whole thing – the confusion about the grip names… Because you have Dave Tate from EliteFTS talking about the false grip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOBKGesyFwk

I just think the gymnastics grip is poorly named. I don’t see what’s false about it.

But a lot of things are poorly named.

Powerlifting should be Weightlifting and Weightlifting (Olympic Lifting) should be Powerlifting. But whatever.

Andrew Thomas

Ok, thanks for clearing this up Eric. I thought the false grip was the one that gymnasts use.

Eric

That’s what I’m saying – the name false grip is correct for both the gymnastics grip and the powerlifting grip as that’s what each respective circle refers to their grip as.

I’m just saying that if you’re looking for the name that better describes the grip, false grip better describes what the powerlifters do vs. what the gymnasts do.

Maybe the gymnastics grip can be called the angled grip because your wrist is at its maximal flexed angle?

If it’s your favorite, I say keep it! Life is too short to go without your favorite foods, favorite music, or favorite callus!!

Rip it! I usually bite mine off with my teeth. Kinda gross yea, but then again I do work around a lot of steel so the extra callus that builds up later actually gives me a better grip. Yea construction workers are gross, I know. LOL thanx for the natural boost tip. I’ve been wanting to completely cut out all synthetic foods (protein) and get all caveman on my food, not sure if it would help or hurt me. Maybe chomp down on my veggies raw for snax and meals instead of steaming them.

I speak from not too much of experience. Leave it.

If you rip it you will have an open wound which will hurt a lot more in contact with objects like the bars. If you leave it it almost works as an band-aid during the time the wound is trying to heal.

Eric
Eric

That’s a good point – too bad I trimmed it already before reading your comment. Next one!

Like all good gymnasts do, trim it as best you can, keep it moist with petroleum gelly or (better) zinc oxide ointment, and wear gymnasts gloves until it is completely healed.

Eric
Eric

Yup, I trimmed it up with nail clippers (after washing them with hydrogen peroxide). When it heals up a bit I’ll trim it some more – it’s still too rough. I wonder if my wife’s manicure place does calluses like this. :O

Rip it then dump alcohol on it. Keeps the stiffness out.

Rub your hands with alchole the pure stuff(medical wipes work ) then after a day or two ripp it off

I can hear the screams from here .. lol

Eric

You must be into S&M because any human person will use benzoyl peroxide.

Alex

I Do that all the time, dont rip it off until the skin softens other wise its gunna hurt next time you workout.

Brandon
Brandon

That happened to me last night too. Except my tear is on the wrist where I make contact with the false grip.

Milo
Milo

I speak from experience, rip it

Darren

Clean it, then dermabond or superglue it back. Keep it. You earned it.

Eric
Eric

What the heck – superglue – have you ever done this before? I think I’ll pass on it until I see some peer-reviewed studies. 🙂
