Step 1: Grab one 10lb plate or less and give yourself some space.  Step 2: Do 8-10 lunges. Step 3: position the 10lb plate at the inside/side of your foot and alternate between squatting and sliding your foot and weight in the direction you want to travel. (You’re not kicking the weight but sliding it where you want it to go). Step 4: Repeat but be sure to switch the direction of the plate slide so your other leg gets the work too! Try to do 3-4 sets of this exercise on your next leg day! 💥 (Clips sped up to fit 1 min limit)

Trying not to fall off the deep end with my carbs... that sounds amazing though.... swimming in French fries... 🍟🤤 i digress. When training biceps, 😆 I like to incorporate barbells, dumbbells, cables, and other moves using just body weight or light weight medicine balls. I try not to repeat an exact exercise routine so even if I’m doing 4 sets of 4 exercises each week for a body part it’s never the same. I love doing cable curls with a rope attachment because I get to twist my wrists... something you cant do with a barbell. 👕 @superfreshclothes

Do me a favor google Jocko Willink Good Rant and have a listen. Here’s an excerpt: “... Now, I don’t mean to say something trite; I’m not trying to sound like Mr. Smiley Positive Guy.

That guy ignores the hard truth.

That guy thinks a positive attitude will solve problems.

It won’t. But neither will dwelling on the problem. No. Accept reality, but focus on the solution. Take that issue, take that setback, take that problem, and turn it into something good.” 💥.

VIDEO: DIY BCAA Gummy Bears

Looking for a low carb, low calorie, sweet treat?? Here you go!

 

Need:
  • 3 Gelatin Packs (Unflavored)
  • 1 Scoop BCAA
  • 1/2 Cup Room Temperature Water
  • Gummy Molds
Process:
Mix Scoop of BCAAs with 1/2 cup of water. Add 3 packs of gelatin and mix well. Pour mixture into a sauce pan and let simmer for 4-5 minutes over medium heat. Pre-treat your molds with a non stick cooking spray (spray onto a paper towel and swipe each mold–this will help when it’s time to remove your gummies). Fill your molds (I needed two batches of the mixture for my 4 molds). Place molds in freezer for 20-25 minutes. Pop out and Enjoy!
 Note: For the exact Molds and Gelatin Packs I used the links are below! 🙂

 

But wait, What are BCAAs??
15 – 20% of the human body is made up of protein. Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein therefore the building blocks of life. BCAA stands for Branch Chain Amino Acids and refers to a group of three amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs can be found in any food containing protein, such as eggs or meat. Most often BCAAs are taken in drink form as an intra-workout (meaning you drink it during your workout). Some benefits of BCAAs are improved muscle growth, increased endurance, greater fat burn, reduced fatigue, increased mental focus, improved recovery and reduced muscle soreness to name a few.

    Hi! What would you suggest to be a serving? I know a scoop of BCAAs is a serving, so would your recipe that you made be considered a serving (1 scoop BCAA and 3 packets of gelatin)? Thanks!

    • Nikki

      Hey Alexa! Great question! It’s a little tricky to determine a serving size based on macros alone. The suggested serving for the gelatin packs is 1/4 packet, so each packet serves four. One serving size is 5 calories and 2g protein; so based on that 3 packets would be 24g protein and 60 calories. Additionally 1 scoop of BCAAs is about 2g protein as well. One batch made slightly more than one tray of gummy bears (that tray had 50 bear molds). All of that to say, if you did eat a batch in one sitting it wouldn’t be the worst snack; it would be very low/no carb, approx 26g protein and approx 60 calories although I don’t think you would want down that much in a sitting 🙂 Hope this helps! 🙂

    WOW!
    Never thought gummy bears could be healthy and used to replace BCAA shakes. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    • Nikki

      No problem Jurica!! I’ve also heard if you add citric acid you can make them sour 🙂 Enjoy!
