New Dad Bod Challenge Workout 3 – Get Strong Workout

There is ONE thing, no matter how busy, focused, old, poor or rich, that dads and men instinctively (sometimes to a fault) have in their DNA.

That’s the influence of the opposite sex.

According to a 2016 survey almost 50% of women said they prefer a sculpted + cut body over a little soft, or even a super muscular body.

The GREAT news for guys is that you don’t have to bulk up to in hopes of attracting the opposite sex.

In their new book Mate: Become the Man Women Want, Tucker Max and Geoffrey Miller devote a chapter to getting in shape & address the question of what body type women prefer:

“Women are sexually attracted to guys who are healthy, capable and likely to live a long time. For most of them, that means a guy who is in good enough shape is good enough.”

What women prefer is a man with energy, stamina + has endurance, who is mindful, active + lean.

In order to get that you just need to put a healthy …

New Dad Bod Challenge Workout 1

We’re sharing Rich & Rehan’s story for a reason!

Rich couldn’t climb a flight of steps without being out of breath. As a 40 year old father he decided that he was fed up with his unhealthy lifestyle, became a triathlon enthusiastic & vegan. It was not only the fact that Rich was winded & buckled over on the stairs, but also the fact that heart disease ran in his family. His mother’s father passed away at a VERY young age, despite that fact that he was one of the best college swimmers in his day & extremely athletic. And so, on Rich’s 40th birthday, he had an epiphany – it was certain that if he didn’t change his lifestyle he would suffer from his grandfather’s fate.

 

Now meet Rehan, a 35 year old man, who had zero family history of heart disease or heart attacks & exercised daily. He was perfectly healthy, or so it seemed. He thought he had a muscle strain that was causing serious neck pain – he even consulted with many doctors & …

Quad stretches to relieve knee pain instantly

Did you know that your quads may actually be responsible for the pain in your knees? 

Your quadriceps are made up of four muscles that run down the front of the thigh. They are responsible for the bending and lengthening of your leg. Your quads are particularly important for activities such as kicking and running.

When the quadriceps get too tight, they can pull the kneecap out of position slightly, causing friction at the knee. This friction can cause inflammation, swelling & pain.

We’ll use our Sunday Stretch Series to create length in your quads + reduce your knee pain!

We’re sharing three quad stretches that lengthen your quadriceps from several directions. Try them now! Remember stretching should never hurt or be painful. Try the stretch + if it doesn’t feel right, stop & try a new one. Not all stretches are for all bodies.

If you know anyone who suffers from knee pain we would be so grateful if you would share this with them. 

P.S. We are taking stretch requests! Want to learn how …

Transform Your Whole Body with Wall Sit Variation Workouts

Our Santa Monica Boot Camp students love Jared’s three wall sit workout options for those who are at the intermediated-advanced fitness level! These seemingly simple exercises can transform your whole body!

Single Leg – Advanced Once you’re in a wall sit position, take your feet and knees together. Extend your right leg in front of you and count to ten, then switch and do the same on the other side. Perform each side 3 times. Trainer’s tip: Keep your head up and your hands to your side at all times to ensure maximum safety and results.

Hammer Curl Wall Sit – Intermediate/Advanced Start in a wall sit position with your shoulders back, head up, feet shoulder width apart, and weights in hand. With your palms facing inwards curl the weights up to your shoulder and control them back down. Repeat. Trainers tip: Try and keep the back of your arms against the wall behind you. You’ll get a better arm contraction that way. Intermediate: 8 – 15 reps Advanced: 15 – 20 reps
