Motivational Monday: Killin’ cardio with rejuvenating smoothie recipe


By Blake Dykes

Well, it’s that dreaded day of the week again. I hope you all had a great weekend, and were able to steer clear of those foods we talked about on Friday. Since weekends are a pretty big downfall to most people’s health, today’s workout is going to be a little harder than usual, but make sure you stick with it.

Killin’ Cardio

  • 100 jumping jacks

  • 50 jump squats

  • 100 mountain climbers

  • One- minute wall it

  • 100 jumping jacks

  • Five minutes of running the stairs

  • 50 crunches

  • 75 jumping jacks

  • Two minutes of high knees

  • 20 push ups

This workout is more than likely going to leave you drained, so make sure you fuel your body with the right foods. Try this smoothie recipe:

– one cup frozen fruit (no added sugars, just simple, organic, frozen fruit) your choice

– ½ cup almond milk (add more or less depending on your liking)

– one TBs peanut butter or peanut butter powder

– one and ½ TBs of Stevia or honey

* Keep in mind that you can adjust the following ingredients to your desired taste, this is just the recipe that I like.

You get all your nutrients with this recipe; calcium, fruits, and protein.

One more thing I wanted to share with you. To find out how your weight fluctuates based upon the food you are eating, take your current weight, multiple it by 12. If you eat more than that number you are more apt to gain weight, if you eat less than you are more likely to lose weight. Keep in mind that’s not taking into count the amount of exercise you get.

Lastly, keep this in mind when you’re considering skipping a practice or a workout this week, or any day for that matter.
