Maximum Sex Appeal Protocol *

20 minutes on your preferred piece of cardio equipment. Examples include treadmill, elliptical, bikes, rowing, assault bike, anything can work. This method is based on "perceived exertion scale." That means you take how hard you are working and assign a value to it, 1 through 10. 1 = Crazy easy. 10 = All-out effort. Every minute for 20 minutes you will maintain this effort to the best of your ability. And this is based on YOUR ability, not anyone else's, so listen to your body and push yourself. Minute 1 - 5 (Warm Up). Minute 2 - 5 (Warm Up). Minute 3 - 6. Minute 4 - 7. Minute 5 - 8. Minute 6 - 9. Minute 7 - 6. Minute 8 - 7. Minute 9 - 8. Minute 10 - 9. Minute 11 - 6. Minute 12 - 7. Minute 13 - 8. Minute 14 - 9. Minute 15 - 6. Minute 16 - 7. Minute 17 - 8. Minute 18 - 9. Minute 19 - 10 (All out effort). Minute 20 - 5 (Cool Down).

Meal Prep

B

Meal Prep Guide *

THE TOOLS : 1. Pick two kitchen implements and master them. My personal favorites include: slow cookers, pressure cookers, the oven, stove top, rice cookers, and the grill. 2. Find 3 protein recipes and 3 carb recipes and 3 salad/vegetable recipes that you love. 3. Pinterest is an excellent source of free recipes, simply search using your given terms. Such as . . . - "Slow cooker chicken breasts." - "Grilled sweet potatoes." - "High protein southwest salad." THE ROUTINE : 1. Select 1-2 days a week where you will make the bulk of your meals. 2. I make about 90% of all my own food in less than an hour a week. Using the oven, running a slow cooker, rice cooker, and making salads within the same hour side by side. PRO-TIPS : 1. Your leanness and physique is a direct expression of the quality of your nutrition and the consistency you bring to it. Shitty nutrition with great training = shitty body. Don't let all your hard training go to waste.
