* Song I'm jamming to this week.
"Wild Thing" by the Troggs. Back in the day on the American Gladiator Tour "Wild Thing" was my entrance theme song. I haven't heard it in a while, but as soon as it played it stoked up the Nitro flames - and made me want to get all kinds of crazy. Play this song and get your Wild Thing on during your workout!
* Favorite supplement of the week:
I absolutely love this Creatine Coffee ($35.96). It combines two of my favorite things: Coffee and Creatine into one smooth, tasty brew. Great for traveling because it's instant! Just put a scoop into hot water and let the party begin. Benefits: improved strength, endurance, mental sharpness, focus, memory and concentration all with a great taste.
* Favorite Supplement of the week # 2
I'm always looking for ways during the hot summer days to Refuel, Refresh and Refocus my body and mind. I'm loving Core Blueberry All natural drink from Proven Nutrition ($53.90 one month supply). It's tasty and refreshing and drinkable all day long for sustained energy. I mix it with ice in a protein-shaker cup and sip on it all day long. SAVE 10% with Code: NITRO
* My favorite new recovery roller - Gurilla roller ($50").
I met these guys at the Gladiator Rock'n Run in San Diego. I plopped down on the Gurilla roller once and was sold. It's even better than the rumble roller I had touted in the past. The secret is the "rope coiling" that makes it the stiffest and most durable roller on the market. WARNING: this is for people who like it deep - not for rookies! Will work on knots that wear other rollers out.
* My favorite Facebook post of the week.
I was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Toledo Mud Hens in front of 8000 fans. Minor league baseball is huge in Toledo. I was nervous because I hadn't thrown a ball in years. My one buddy reminded me "rotator cuff pain is temporary but youtube glory is forever." So here yah go with the video!
