16 Days Away From The Ontario Naturals!!!

Hey guys!!
Just posting a quick update on my journey to my next show, which is in 16 days (September 11th) ... I am in the gym twice a day these days... One weight training session (sometimes I break it up into 2) and two cardio sessions!!! I'm not having any issues with my diet, although it has gotten stricter I am still sticking to it :)
I was away last week for the entire week spending time with family by the lake and had NO gym access but luckily my trainers (Mindi & Dennis) sent me some EXTREME crossfit workouts to do while i was there and that kept me from losing any of my hard work!! The hardest thing at this point is getting through that LAST cardio session, I spend more time with the Stepmill than I do with anything or anybody else... LOL

I'm posting some updated pics that I took this morning, these are not the suits that i will be wearing on the day of the show, I'll be getting something different!!

I hope you are all having a great week so far, I'll be posting some new workout video clips soon so stay tuned to my site and youtube channel!

Cross-Fit Style Mini Workout & Slim-Down Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

By: Alex Liska
Here is another mini-workout that requires both cardiovascular and muscular endurance. This no-equipment workout combines compound, functional moves: Reverse Lunges, Mountain-Climbers, Pushups, Burpees which exercise all major muscle groups pretty much. You can perform 5-10 reps of each exercise in a series and complete a total of 3-5 sets and you have a total body workout with NO equipment, NO gym and you are also getting a great abdominal/core workout from this! :)

Slim-Down Breakfast Smoothie Recipe:

-1 scoop Whey Protein (low-carb)
-1 tbsp. Ground Flaxseeds
-1 teaspoon Walnut Oil
-1/2 cup Frozen Berries
-1 tbsp. Almond Butter
-1 scoop Greens Plus Extra Energy Cappuccino Flavor
-350-400mls water & 6-8 ice cubes

Blend all the ingredients listed above until you have obtained the desired consistency for your smoothie!
It is VERY important to eat breakfast as SOON as you wake up. Try having your smoothie and then give the above workout clip a try, OR simply go for a 20-30minute power-walk if you are just getting started with your physical activity regimen.

Have a great week!!
