Cooking Tip: Be sure to season brand new non stick pans before use. You can season them by rubbing oil into them and heating on medium for 2 minutes. Coconut oil is the preferred choice as it has a higher smoke resistance to heat. Let the pan cool and wash with warm soapy water. Your pan is now ready to go!
Training Tip: The proof is in the BASICS. Show me your air squat and I'll tell you how heavy and how efficient your squat is. Show me your hollow body holds/and or rocks and i'll tell you how efficient your gymnastics is and where it falls apart. Train you basics. Grow to love the basics. Do the basics daily!
Mindset Tip: Mindset Tip: Accept where you're at! Quite often we dwell on where we used to be or we put things off because 'when I'm like that, I'll be able to do this'... You are where you are because of your walks of life. You can be where you want to be but it's completely judged by the amount of effort your willing to put in. You are where you're at from what you've done so far, so ask your self today... What are you becoming?
