BIG BOY MOBILITY

Today I felt like changing things up during my #30forthekids workout. So I started to test my squats.

The two exercises I do in this video are no joke!

Wall squats require a lot of strength, flexibility and mobility to perform. I learned these from @thompsonfatpad And they’ve really helped me out with patterning my squat movement. Which is probably why I can still squat 3 plates even tho I hardly lift heavy anymore.

The second exercise is called a deck squat and this is the first time I have actually gone that low before! Once again, mobility, strength, flexibility and even a lot of core work when you are rocking back and forth.

YOUR BODY TYPE DOES NOT HAVE TO DICTATE WHAT YOU CAN OR CANT DO.

UNLESS YOU HAVE AN INJURY OR PRE EXISTING CONDITION, THEN YOU ARE THE ONE IN CONTROL OF WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF☺️ #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @1stphorm @jarrettwbond22 @andyfrisella @mrfrisella

I GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS

The past few weeks have been very good to me. I have noticed a monumental shift in my progress.

I am now starting to notice changes on a weekly progress. Which hasn’t really happened in a long time.

I have changed a few things up: i tightened up my nutrition, dialed in my training and stayed pretty consistent.

BUT THE BIGGEST GAME CHANGER FOR ME WAS WHEN I DECIDED TO START USING SUPPLEMENTS FROM @1stphorm
I rarely used supplements in the past year because honestly, I had bigger things to take care of such as my consistency with nutrition, training and loving myself.

Even when I used some supplements during that time, I quickly stopped using them because I was not feeling a difference.
Once I felt good in the important areas in my transformation, then I said to myself that I’m ready to turn the dial up a bit.

I found 1st phorm through their athlete search. It wasn’t the products that hooked me at first, it was the mission statement. And when I watched their video, I immediately fell in love with the company because they preached how it was not about what you look like, it’s about your heart. And to me, that falls right in line with my beliefs.

So I took a chance and have been testing the products on myself for the past few weeks.

IT HAS MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN HOW I FEEL AND MY OWN ENERGY LEVELS DURING WORKOUTS.

This couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. And I’m excited to see what happens after another few months with 1st phorm by my side.

Hope you like my phorm tree @mrfrisella @andyfrisella @jarrettwbond22 . It’s nestled safely beneath Miley Cyrus, kim k, and phormula one. Haha.

Happy Tuesday my friend!! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled

BRAVING THE ELEMENTS.... Last Saturday was the first snowfall of the season here In New Jersey, so I had to take advantage of this glorious snow!

I DECIDED TO KNOCK OUT PUSH UPS, SIT UPS AND SQUATS IN THE SNOW!
I had to put my shoes on a few minutes into this, but I got it done. And it wasn’t that bad.

AND YES I DID IT IN MY BOXER BRIEFS IN THE PRIVACY OF MY OWN BACKYARD

Over the past year I began exposing myself to the cold on a regular basis. Cold showers, going outside with no jacket, cryotherapy, etc. and it has made a monumental Difference in my recovery and mental focus. So I do try to push the envelope a little bit. Last winter, I did squats and sledgehammer strikes in the snow and that was rough. Last Saturday was not nearly as bad as back then.

OCCASIONALLY GOING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE YIELDS SOME HIGH REWARDS.
And I can honestly say that this is definitely a character building moment in my life☺️ Happy Monday my friend! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @andyfrisella @mrfrisella @1stphorm @jarrettwbond22

Starting the week with my heart open.

Open to positivity
Open to change

Open to connection

And open to progress.

This is not a day to dread.

Monday is meant to be the opening act of another amazing week.

So have a wonderful day my friend☺️ #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @jarrettwbond22 @1stphorm @mrfrisella @andyfrisella @yoga

MAKE THAT SH*T LOOK CUTE

Last Friday I took my second pole dancing class with @zoeinthesky and I can tell you this right now.... IM MAKING IT LOOK A LITTLE SEXIER.

I’m starting to understand more of the concepts of pole dancing and there is way more to it than I initially thought. But one thing that always sticks in my head is when Zoe says that you gotta make it look cute.

We all have our own interpretation of what that means, and I find that for me, I’m taking the foundation of what I’m being taught and adding my own flair.
I think as a straight man, it’s easy to feel out of place in a pole dancing class because the majority of moves are feminine. But as we learn to let go of whatever stigma we are feeling , we can embrace the unknown and make that sh*t look cute haha.

I know that when I’m ready, I’m coming up with my own routine done to the song ‘all the things you’re man won’t do’ by JOE ☺️ SPOILER ALERT: ITS GONNA BE FIRE!! I’m slowly preparing for my first pole dancing boot camp with @rozthediva and I think it’s coming together well so far☺️ Let’s have a great week my friend!! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @sir_twitch_alot @andyfrisella @mrfrisella @1stphorm @jarrettwbond22 @magicmikelive @channingtatum

PHAMILY APPRECIATION WEEK
On the final day of PHAMILY appreciation week, I wanted to dedicate this day to the first 3 people to make an impact on me at the meetup: @chris_puck_33 @kath1109 and my main man @djanthonyl
At the meet up, I got there a little early on the stair master. I was all sorts of incognito with my hoodie hat and sweats on. While I was getting it on, I saw Chris pass right by me and even tho we never met, he knew who I was and immediately came up to me and introduced himself. To me, that’s a big deal and a testament to chris character. He is an all around awesome guy who loves to bring people together and support others. He is selfless in every sense of the word. And for that, I’m forever grateful to chris for setting up the event and for believing in me, even tho we don’t know each other well...yet.

the second person I met was his wife Kathy at sign in. It could’ve easily been an robotic conversation where I sign in and wait, but we really hit it off and got to talk about a lot of things. Her and Chris are going to be having a child in about a month and I’m very excited for them. Kathy also teaches Zumba and I know that once she’s cleared to roll, we are gonna be tearing it up on the gym floor!

Chris and Kathy are a shining example of what @1stphorm stands for and that’s why I saved the best for last. They bring out the best in everyone they meet.

All of this would not have been possible with out my new friend Anthony. I asked him if he wanted to work out together again a few weeks back and he said he would do me one better, by inviting me to the meet up. I told you how amazing a guy he is before. But I want you to know that if it wasn’t for him, I would not have met any of the PHAMILY and that’s why he holds a special place in my heart. He’s literally changed the trajectory of my life.

Plus, he’s my first celebrity friend☺️ Have a great Sunday my friend!! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @andyfrisella @mrfrisella @jarrettwbond22

SOULFUL SATURDAY

Yesterday, someone messaged me the following two comments you see in this picture

If it was summer 2016,this type of stuff would’ve crushed me.

TODAY, I USE THESE WONDERFULLY NEGATIVE COMMENTS AS MATERIAL FOR POSTS. AND THATS ALWAYS A GOOD THING.

I KNOW 95 % OF BIG PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF LIKE TO HIDE AWAY THEIR BELLY.

They usually do this by wearing high waisted pants or oversized shirts. And that’s totally cool.

I wear shirts that are appropriate for my size but due to the stomach, they’ll have a tendency to stick out if I stretch way too FAR or something extreme.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO LET IT ALL HANG OUT .

And here’s why... If I was self conscious every time I reached my hands high, I would start becoming a person who doesn’t like the body I am in.which also triggers an emotional self hatred.
Some respond well to criticism because they use it as fuel to change themselves for the better. They use the pain to drive them to make progress and that’s great.

I DONT RESPOND WELL TOWARDS HATING MY BODY. I have done it in the past, and every time I’ve tried to transform going down that road, I’ve always ended up feeling empty, even when I reached my goals. Because I never felt good enough.

FOR ME, TRUE TRANSFORMATION STARTED TAKING PLACE WHEN I BEGAN TO LOVE ALL OF ME AT THIS CURRENT POINT IN TIME.
This doesn’t mean to say that I’m content with how I look. It means that my body is going to change as I continue to focus on my habits and loving myself. And my body will become a reflection of that self love.

The quest to be a better person inside and out is what keeps me going. And coincidentally, I’m also able to enjoy and savor the non scale victories as well.

HIDING MYSELF WAS NEVER THE ANSWER FOR ME. I HAD TO EMBRACE ALL OF ME.

there are always
Going to people to hate things about you, and those who those fall in love with those same things. What truly matters the most is how you feel about yourself.

And right now.... IM FEELIN MYSELF☺️ #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @jarrettwbond22 @mrfrisella @andyfrisella @1stphorm @yoga

PHAMILY APPRECIATION WEEK !

Ok SO today I wanted to give a special shout out to my boy @greyson_landry !

One of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. And he has got a lot of ❤️ He is like Rudy ruettiger! He doesn’t know the meaning of giving up!
How do I know this?

Because when we first started working out on Sunday , he was the first person I worked sets in with.

We were doing incline bench

And while the weight was tough for Greyson.

He never gave up!
And to me, that speaks volumes about his character.

It was a pleasure meeting you my man! Next time, we are gonna go even harder!

And I know you will be knocking out 205 on incline the next time we meet up!
I can guarantee it!! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @andyfrisella @mrfrisella @jarrettwbond22 @1stphorm

OVERHEAD SQUATS ARE TOUGH WHEN YOU ARE FRESH

BUT They are one million times harder after you kill your legs with 30 minutes on the stair master
Then back squats

Then hack squats

In addition to benching and rows.

That’s why you see me pause after getting it over my head

Cause I thought I was gonna die haha.

But glad to know that I did 5 sets of 3 at 135 lbs.

After this is I hit up the 500m row challenge and got 1:36.

I still can’t get over how great my training went on Sunday with the PHAMILY!

Goes to show you what happens when you have positive people in one room supporting one another☺️ Happy Friday my friend!! #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @1stphorm @jarrettwbond22 @mrfrisella @andyfrisella

PHAMILY APPRECIATION WEEK
Today I wanted to let you know that I found my brother from another mother on Sunday.

And that brother is aaron aka @huge_fat_loser
Aaron is someone I really look up to because he has been in my shoes. He has completely transformed his body and life. And even more importantly, has stayed consistent ever since. Whenever I felt run down this week, i would see his posts on Instagram and immediately get fired up to push forward. Aaron is a living example of hard work, dedication and motivation for me. And I know that also applies to everyone else he meets in his life.

My favorite memory of Aaron from Sunday is when he took his megawatt preworkout at 1 and we didn’t start working out til 130. He was sweating bullets and was ready to rip a few phone books in half!! It was great finally getting to meet you in real life Aaron! I can’t wait til the next meet up and even moreso, to actually get some time to work out together my man! Cause I know an epic training session is in our future💪🏿 #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @andyfrisella @mrfrisella @jarrettwbond22 @1stphorm

I AM NOT AFRAID TO THROW DOWN
This video was from winter of 2015

It was the 3rd wod in a local crossfit competition that I was competing in.

I was well over 400 lbs

And this workout required us to complete multiple 24 inch box jumps.

I’m deftly afraid of these cause I’ve hurt myself in the past.

But Even tho I was hesitant at first, I eventually was able to muster up the courage and rise to the occasion!

OUR BODIES DO NOT HAVE TO HOLD US BACK FROM DOING WHAT WE WANT DO IN LIFE.

While I’m a big guy, I can do many things even normal sized people can’t even achieve.

And the big reason why is because I never let my weight become a crutch. I’ve always gone pursued what I wanted to become good at.

It’s led to weight loss and increased strength in the past.

But here’s a fun fact,

DURING THIS TIME IN MY LIFE, I WAS GOING THRU AN EXTREME BOUT OF BINGING AND DEPRESSION.

Two girls broke my heart. I was feeling lost in life. And at this time, I was gaining a lot of weight again. I originally signed up for this to get me back on track with everything. but even after this competition, I couldn’t shake it.

I SAY THIS TO REMIND YOU THAT EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT AT OUR BEST, WE ARE STILL CAPABLE OF MORE THAN WE THINK.

And that’s why this video is important to me.

It’s a constant reminder that I can do whatever I set my heart to. EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING IS NOT PERFECT.

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE☺️ #teamwagon #bodypositive @theellenshow @edbyellen @therock @djkhaled @1stphorm @jarrettwbond22 @mrfrisella @andyfrisella #throwbackthursday
