How to maximize the afterburn effect in your strength training workouts

How to cultivate your legacy. The ash flash mission continues…

Hello and thanks for being here. Be sure to subscribe for regular updates. This video along with all the others I shot during the winter and have not yet edited, is overdo; and I wanted you to know I’m doing the best I can.

the ash flash is my passion but the day job still pays the bills 🙂

The posting schedule will become a little less frequent and a little more more erratic for the summer, because when you live in Wisconsin, you go outside and explore the outdoors as often as you can during the warmer months. It’s called survival!

I’ll keep you posted on my fishing and canoeing adventures as much as possible, but wanted you to know that I have not given up on my commitment to this blog. I just feel like even though there are not thousands of you yet, I want the subscribers who are here to know how committed I am to the mission of keeping you inspired for your life and business. Thanks again for being here and for all your support.

I’ve been working hard over the winter during the pandemic to re-create my fitness nomad fit for life training system right here on the ash flash. You can get early access to this program once completed by subscribing to the ash flash.

Below I’ve included a small photo of a meal I ate yesterday for lunch. It’s not pretty, but it has that lean peace of chicken I used as an example in the video above, along with some freshly roasted potatoes, a salad with pepitas and a few cubes of cheese and parmesan and catina dressing, with a nice glass of almond milk. Not included in the photo is the couple dozen chips I couldn’t resist while I was preparing the meal. It was Saturday, and I had just finished the yard work, and I was famished. Just wanted to get that in there for full disclosure, because that’s why I’m not leaner. Too much extra snacking. A lifelong habit that I’m working to correct in my 50s now.

Nutrition can be tricky because there are just so many ways to combine all the variables and there are now so many different ways that varying experts recommend we eat. So, in general, I don’t dole out much nutrition advice anymore other than the common sense stuff. Once again, and as always, I focus on the science, and what we truly know, and then I encourage you to figure it out on your own and be honest with yourself about how you’re really eating.

Stay away from simple carbs and junk food. Stop drinking so much alcohol. Don’t overeat. Focus on whole foods and stay away from too much red meat. Keep a food journal and increase your awareness about what you’re truly taking-in and read the books I recommend on nutrition. They will help you gain perspective and a better understanding of how to nourish yourself in a more healthful way.

Also, cook as much of our own food as possible. Most people, I’ve found, could start here, along with eliminating the junk food and alcohol and make terrific progress.
