Excerpt from foodrenegade.com:
If I’m describing you, then you’re either going to hate me or love me by the time you’re done reading this post. The truth is, that orange juice you feel so good about buying is probably none of those things. You’ve been making assumptions based on logic. The food industry follows its own logic because of the economies of scale. What works for you in your kitchen when making a glass or two of juice simply won’t work when trying to process thousands upon thousands of gallons of the stuff…”

Thanks for the share, braddah Junya.
If it grows on a plant, eat it; if it has to go thru a plant, don’t.
Even the purists have fooled us!
About a week ago, friend, Kombat Arts Athlete and Strength seeker, Lisa Dunn, recently penned an article about her experience in training in the Art of Muay Thai. It’s a great read and text to turn to when seeking motivation in your own training, woman, man or child.
Here’s an excerpt from her article with a beginning that I personally love (everything thereafter is even more priceless, so I’ll let you read for yourself):

Great piece, Lisa. You and husband Barry, keep staying strong.
Catch Lisa and Husband, Barry training + playing with prowler and club in hand.
Remember, training, whether throwing punches, kicks or heavy weights overhead goes far beyond simply just trying to “look” fit.
Follow Lisa’s example and shape your own path towards personal empowerment through training.

I’ll take a speechless role here and let the experience and strength-imagery of my athletes, advocates and ultimately, close friends speak for themselves.
Have A Strong Day.
In kettlebell training, an omelet, similar to a complex, is a series of movements that are folded and mixed together flowing from one side of the body to the other.
There are several omelets at your disposal on the internet, but they just didn’t have what my athletes and myself were looking for. Because JDSKBC I (JD Single Kettlebell Complex I) was formed as a simple but effective kettlebell complex for beginner to advanced athletes, pending on reps, sets and duration of rest, the idea behind this complex was to train without having to think about how to swing or even having your swing technique go down the toilet during your later rounds and sets.
I’m starting to really push for quality of movement in each individual rather than simply, going balls to the wall at an insane intensity simply to be a slave to a stopwatch and beat your “PR” (that’s ok, sometimes, just not all the time).
“Kat’s Omelet”, alongside JDSKBC I, is a classic staple on our strength menu here at JD Training, but only if you have a basic grounding in the basic Hardstyle Kettlebell Swing. This omelet, unlike “JDSKBC I”, is to not only promote conditioning, work capacity and blah blah blah (aka great tenants of fitness), but also to promote actual skill and performance – that great thing called MOVEMENT. Wow, there’s something you don’t hear about much in the fitness world, training to actually move and perform well; it’s just how Coach JD rolls, I guess.

Have A Strong Day.
Life has been pretty hectic over the last few weeks with training and just getting outside to enjoy the fresh air and sun, whenever possible.
I’ve put together a few videos, that’ll be posted over the next few days when I have the chance, along with some blog posts that I’ve been piecing together here and there.
Here we go:
Tom’s Strength Snack
Here’s a nice little combo that you can do on your own, provided that you have access to a nearby flight of stairs or steep hill. Tom, in this case, used a Sandball overhead, performed a windmill, slammed it then ran up and down the stairs a bunch of times. Who said “cardio” had to be on a treadmill?
I hope you enjoy this electricity-free and environmentally-friendly, human-powered Strength Snack as much as Tom did (pssst, it’s lo-calorie, high-intensity, too).
The first installment, “Danger Is Fun” is pretty self-explanatory. If there’s no danger involved in anything we do, there will be no fun. Taking risks and getting out of your comfort zone not only builds character, leads to personal growth and self-righteousness and enlightenment, but is fun as hell!
Remember when you were a kid and used to roll down the hill, walk across unstable ledges and dart across the nearby street with uncoming traffic?
What happened? When did our lives become so boring?
Rough Draft: Danger Is Fun
Enjoy the fresh air, Strength Seekers.
