JTF’s Mount Crushmore (Supps) — Rest Days

Most people who know me would probably scoff at the thought of me writing a post about resting. I proudly work around 70 hours a week between my jobs at Discovery and TITLE Boxing Club. Additionally, I'm putting in personal time at the gym just pumping iron or otherwise getting my sweat on. There have … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore (Supps) — Rest Days

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 9

I had a supplement post planned for last week but never made it. I don't know why. With that said, I'm going to shake up my planned blog posting for the remainder of this program (yes, I do have a calendar for it). Over the course of the next few weeks, I intend to highlight … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 9

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 8

Tired. Sore. Sunburned. That's been the response in my head for the last two days when people ask how I'm doing. Friday's workout did a number on me, I halfway messed up my shoulder in MMA last week. Some freak in Brazil compromised my bank card and spent $3,200 I didn't have, leaving me with … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 8

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Workout Plan Pt. 2

Last week we covered Part 1. Catch up if you need to. One of my favorite clients is a young lady that works at a dentist's office. She's a hard worker, she's hungry for progress and she isn't afraid to sweat to reach her goals. In the short time that we've worked together, I've noticed … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore Workout Plan Pt. 2

JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 7

We're on the downhill, guys! Ultimately last week was a good week. I started with a new client, had a spa day, cooked an unreal dinner on Saturday night, had another extremely challenging MMA class on Sunday and spent some quality family time with Cara's folks to celebrate Mother's Day. On the downside, however, I … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 7

JTF’s Mount Crushmore Workout Plan Pt. 1

As we established a long time ago, the goal of JTF's Mount Crushmore was to reduce my body fat percentage. We do that by losing body fat while simultaneously increasing muscle mass. The entire program has two main components: eating and moving my ass. I've detailed my meal plan several times over the last several … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore Workout Plan Pt. 1

Mount Crushmore: the Introduction + 7 Questions

In my last post I mentioned that we'd be discussing "fat" in the next post. Looks like it didn't work out that way and I honestly feel bad about it. HOWEVER. I'm going to do you one better. How about instead of just talking about fat, we put fitness and nutrition into practice and actually … Continue reading Mount Crushmore: the Introduction + 7 Questions

The Weekly Thing 12/4

I mentioned in my last post that it's way important to not be a glass jaw when it comes to stepping up your game after falling off the wagon for the holidays. Did any of you fall off of said wagon? I'll be the first to tell you that not only did I fall but … Continue reading The Weekly Thing 12/4

Bluegrass Half Marathon, Y’all

The great philosopher Forrest Gump once had a profound conversation with a t-shirt designer while running coast to coast... Woah! Man, you just ran through a big pile of dog shit! It happens... What -- shit? Sometimes... Shit, indeed, does happen. And in doing so, sometimes it makes you take a short hiatus from blogging … Continue reading Bluegrass Half Marathon, Y’all
