Well this will go down as the 17th dumbest thing I’ve ever done in a gym.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Other dumb gym moments include:
❌the time I dropped a dumbbell on my face
❌the time I fell flat on my back after trying to squat on a swiss ball
❌and who can forget the time I was chatting up a girl on the treadmill, then tripped up, and went flying through the wall behind me.
❌or the time my pants and underwear came off during a pull up 🍆.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BTW, 3/4 of those stories are true 🤣. Which one do you think is made up?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But seriously tho...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you truly desire to live your best life, start first with transforming your body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was the gateway for me to go from an uninspired corporate desk jockey, to a person living his life on his own terms (with permission, of course, from my beautiful wife @jessicagouthrofitness ... jk).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During my journey, I’ve learned the habits and self discipline it takes to transform your body, crosses over to achieving all the things you want in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, working out (and early morning mediation) continues to be the secret sauce to get me into a “flow state”, so I can get more done with my business.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My sustainable results all started back in 2010, when I first invested in a structured program to follow.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So if you’re ready to elevate your life, start here 👉 LiveLeanTV.com/Quiz to find the best program for you. Clickable link in my @bradgouthro bio 👈

I can’t help it, 🍕 makes me smile. Especially when it’s delicious. Since moving to Southern California over 3 years ago, finding delicious pizza has been a struggle. So much so, Dominos has been my weekly go to.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But sometimes you’ll find an authentic Neapolitan-style pie that just makes you 😃.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’re shocked that I eat pizza every week, stop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pizza is not the enemy of Living Lean. The over consumption of pizza, combined with the art of being a lazy 🍑 is.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Earn your pizza. Besides, if you ate it everyday, it would take the pleasure out of it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It was so nice to go out on a 1-on-1 date with this hot mama. Go check my IG stories to see what we ate. Hint: it involved 🍕, 🍺 (well I enjoyed a beer because @jessicagouthrofitness is 🤰), and dessert.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keeping it 💯, Living Lean means you get the best of both worlds. You follow a proven, step-by-step plan, which then allows you to enjoy life!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t say this enough...fitness should be a part of your life, not your entire life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re struggling with your journey, let’s find you the best program for your goals, your fitness level, and access to equipment. Go take our quick Lean Body Quiz to discover and start that program today.

IS YOUR PUSH UP FORM 💩? The classic push up exercise is a total body exercise ... WHEN you perform it correctly, with intention. - @bradgouthro
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With intention? Wha chu talkin bout Willis?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next time you’re performing a push up, run through this muscle activation checklist:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅are you creating tension by pressing your hands through the floor?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅are you contracting your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and abs, or are they relaxed? (they should be firing as well)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To put your push up muscle activation to the test, try this push up variation using two plates.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This will quickly expose you if you’re not activating all your muscles during a push up.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After trying it, go perform regular push ups, but this time, perform it with all your muscles activated.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Enjoy 💪😎✌️

Looks like @kygouthro’s new favorite book has a familiar face on the cover. 🤣📚
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seriously though, it’s been over 2 years since I published “Think and Live Lean”, and the feedback has been amazing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I truly believe cultivating the right MINDSET is the missing piece in so many people’s Live Lean journey. Without the proper “software” (your mind), the “hardware” (your body) won’t function optimally. That’s why I wrote this book.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re tired of always falling off the fitness wagon, don’t just read this book, the real value is completing all the action steps at the end of every chapter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’ve already read the book but haven’t posted your feedback on Amazon yet, it would mean the world to me if you did 🙏🏼.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Stress is real. That’s life. But learning how to deal with it, is what matters most.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉On a level of 1-10, with 10 being crazy high, how stressed are you on a daily basis? Comment below ⬇️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍻 Sure having a few pops with the boys helps occasionally...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🏀 But the gym and sports has always been my ultimate release. Especially heavy bag training 🥊.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧘‍♂️ More recently, meditation has also helped. Last year I got back into it after stopping over 5 years ago. 20 minutes of guided meditation in the morning before the family is up is 🔑.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💤 And let’s not forget sleep. Once @kygouthro is in bed at 8pm... it’s usually lights out for @jessicagouthrofitness and I by 9-9:30pm. Quality sleep is often the most overlooked factor in managing stress.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤦‍♂️ I wonder how different life would be if the system taught real life skills in school, like stress management, rather than calculus. 🤐

REAL TALK: Your environment and surroundings matter ... A LOT 🌎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Comment below if you agree or disagree!👈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re like me, you feed off of external energy and the environment you’re in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s why I prefer to workout at a beautiful gym, even though my condo building has a gym.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s why I prefer to rent office space, so I can surround myself with other like minded entrepreneurs, even though I could operate my business at home.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s why i prefer to live in one of the most expensive cities in the world, even though our @liveleantv business is 100% online.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I’m trying to say is, if you’re in a rut, try changing your environment. That could be a physical space or the people you associate with.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the years, I’ve become much more self-aware about what fires me up. Trust me, don’t let your environment hold you back.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Moooore! 💪👶🤙
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@kygouthro has the right attitude.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When life hits you with adversity, it’s up to you to look in the mirror, smile, and say, “moooore”. #ProudDad #NinjaBaby

Just contemplating what life is going to be like in 6 months when @kygouthro little brother or sister arrives 😲.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The big question is where will we live as our condo won’t fit our growing family?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One thing is for sure, we’ll be staying in San Diego for the holidays as our delivery date is the week of Christmas.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But after that...who knows 😬
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS. What type of content would you like to see on my IGTV? I’m open to producing non-fitness related content too.

HERE WE GO AGAIN 😀...Well, since we ❤️ this little one so much, @jessicagouthrofitness and I decided to create another one!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS. Jess doesn’t know which gender we’re having yet, but @kygouthro and I know (and told my Lyft driver too) 😂.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you think it’s a boy or girl?

Happy Father’s Day dad. 3 random things I’m grateful for:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣You gave me the chance to fall in love with playing sports as a kid 🏒⛳️⚾️⚽️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣You let me go grocery shopping in your kitchen cabinets when I’d visit on the weekends from university 🍗🍳🥓.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣You helped me find my smile by investing your hard earned money and time in many orthodontist appointments from grade 9-12 😁.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can’t believe I’ll be doing the same for @kygouthro one day 👨‍👧❤️.
