So today during the 3rd week of heavy @metamaxcondtioning back squat program I asked my student/physical therapist Jessica to take a look at my squats under a heavy load.
Why heavy load? Because we tend to see the imbalances more under distress on a more advanced athlete or client. We can see what is firing & not firing. Something you can’t see doing a regular body weight squat.
She confirmed what I feel & video taped a slight shift on the right glute. So long story short: I had a injury a year back to the right glute & hamstring. I have fully recovered with Mobilty, time & Dr. Denise doing acupuncture & therapy.
However!!! The right glute is weaker. It lost strength during the healing. So to better my self even more & make my body perform that much better we need to put in the effort in the not so much fun part of training. Single leg isolation & strengthening. This is where traditional isolated exercise are great for!
My glute minimus needs this & stabilizers of the knee on that right side to enhance performance.
So time to show you more than the fancy lifts. Time to open up & show you the humbling part of getting better. It’s small but a step towards the right way.
I also wanted to show you that I got this from my student. I never assume to know it all or be the best of everything in the fitness industry. I learn everyday how to be better in every way.
It’s the passion that is behind my message & dream that allows me to reach you. Not because I lift the heaviest or got a ten pack which I don’t or because I am the smartest best programmer on earth because I’m not! But again it’s the passion & consistency that shows you that I want to help you become a healthier & happier you. I love what I do.
Motivation! Dedication! Inspiration! Preserving the Sexy

You have to learn to do things you don’t like. You must find ways to like the process and make the most of that time.
Today after the workout I had to do a billion muscle ups because 1 I’m not that great at them. 2 I want to get better. 3 my coaches made me do them because I left my pre workout Star Wars cup out & they are holding it ransom until I completed the task.
It’s my favorite cup & I want it back! LOL! So I did the workout & i did pretty good on all the muscle ups. I hit them all & didn’t miss one. Gotta lot of work to do but I made the process fun by dancing & goofing around. I love what I do. Even when I’m not that great at it. I find joy in the journey.
Hope you guys have a blessed day peeps! Off to teach & then coach at CFMDI tonight! Be there!

Nothing fancy peeps! Just hard work! Cold & it was hard to motivate early this morning to move the body but it needed to be done. No barbell needed.
When I think of skipping a workout because I’m tired or cold I think of you. I think of my daughter, my community. I have to lead. Only one way to lead! I choose to live as an example! I won’t be out worked, out loved & out done. Not peacock Lou! Not Dad STACHE Lou! Not Mr. PTS! Not bounce a quarter of the Nalgas Lou! Not 5 mix tapes for 20 Lou! LOL!
Live as an example peeps! Have a blessed day.

Blog 134
I am motivated by the desire to change the world through example & fitness.
Murda she wrote was the name of the WOD today! My coach Belinda @beast.marie wrote a nasty complex today. Try it out!
10 minute Barbell Complex: build to as heavy as possible! Do not drop the bar.
5 deadlifts
4 hang cleans
3 shoulder to over head
Do not drop the bar!
Remember peeps do not compare your greatness to others. It takes away & steals the glory that god gave you. Do what you can do & be proud of that. Be proud that you are doing something positive that may inspire others. Be proud of you. Confidence is everything.

Wednesday & Thursday WOD! Friday closed for Coaches Holiday! Blog 122 & 123 & Box to Business!

From The box to Business seminar Coach Luis just wanted to tell you that he & all the CFMDI team loves you all & that we appreciates everyone one of you.

Blog 123: Thinking of my family.
Good morning CFMDI peeps, NPTI students, familia & friends.
Day 1 of the seminar was amazing. I’m learning so much. Day 2 has now started & it started with some good ole fitness.
PEEPS While traveling there are no excuses for not taking care of your body.
Jason Khalipa & Jared told us be ready for a good workout so I got ready. 6:30am hit & we all met in the lobby to find out:
Warm up was 34 flights of stairs from the bottom of the hotel to the top. Brutal!
Then 5 Round:
10 flight of stair climb
20 jumping lunges
Amrap: 6 minutes
As many push ups as possible.
REST IN PEACE NALGAS & Chesticals!
Point of the story is that your fitness shouldn’t be confined to just a box. You should be able to get after it anywhere.
Time for breakfast & off to meetings. God bless & have a great day. Don’t miss out on you fitness & get your butts in CFMDI or anywhere you can.
Motivation! Dedication! Inspiration! Preserving the Sexy

Blog 122

To the world you could be one person, but to one person you could mean the world.

I hope to be the best husband, dad, coach, teacher, friend & man I could be.

The way my daughter smiles at me with her eyes makes me dream & work that much harder.

I just left on a business trip for the rest of the week. My quest for knowledge & passion to be better has led me for over a year wanting to participate & be at the Box to Business seminar.

Box to business is a seminar that Jason Khalipa & Jarett Perelmutter put together for box owners to become better at business in every aspect. I plan on soaking this experience in. I will be a sponge & make CFMDI the biggest thing in fitness in my city & who knows worldwide.

It’s just me traveling now as we speak. The longest I have been from my daughter, the box & school. Just writing this chokes me up because I don’t want to miss out on my daughter, wife, community & school.

This is a huge opportunity. I won’t let it pass up. I will make my family proud. Gods plan. Live as an example.

Motivation! Dedication! Inspiration! Preserving the Sexy

HUGE thank you to everyone who attended #BTBMIA || This was an amazing group of owners and entrepreneurs hungry for some @jarettp @jasonkhalipa knowledge bombs, and ready to get out there and raise up their communities. || thanks as always to @progenex @reebok @cavemancoffeeco
