Midweek Motivation

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have a plan for whatever your goals are right now? Just plan it out and stick with it! Then there will be no regrets. Log it all and work in some treats! Most of all, be thankful for all the blessings you have. I know I am so thankful for you guys...

Beachbody – PRE B...

Beachbody has them again! Their Black Friday Sales, but really these are PRE Black Friday sales :-) The best deals on Beachbody programs! The links will be live on 11/25 at 5 PM PST.  In the past, there have been some hiccups right at the opening time. So just make sure your see a...

Thanksgiving teamRIPPED...

I love to get to post this each year around this time… why? Cuz it doesn’t change! Holidays are always hard when you are starting out and trying to create and reinforce new habits. I remember the first time I posted this all the grief I got about encouraging people to stick...

Don’t Over Think ...

We love to go all in on teamRIPPED! That is what has made this team great. We have had more daily, monthly, and quarterly winners of the BB Challenge than any other team in all of TBB!!! So there is no doubt that we drop the excuses and we BRING IT! That’s what I did, and that is...

Weekend Update

Each one of us has 24 hours a day. Most of us spend 8-10 hours at work… Maybe up to 1 or 2 eating… 7-9 sleeping… those are all good things! We should work hard, eat to fuel our bodies and just enjoy food, and we definitely need good rest. But you want to know what I...

Transformations Paying ...

One of the greatest things that has happened through teamRIPPED is the decision of various members of TR deciding to pay it forward. It makes me so proud and happy to see others passing their passion on to new people. I hope everyone finds a place to belong with teamRIPPED, but there is...

Midweek Motivation

This week’s Midweek Motivation is a bit of a HATER Edition. If you pursuing change and fitness is very different than those around you, don’t be surprised if some step up to try to bring you down. This can really come up over the Holidays if you are sticking to your plan and...

Condiments and Fat Loss

Condiments can really improve a meal. You know this if it is the 16th time this month you’ve had 10 oz. of chicken breast and 2 cups of broccoli for dinner. Sometimes your meals need a little help, but what condiments can you use that won’t be detrimental to your diet or...

Avoiding Temptation At ...

Over the last week or so I have asked you guys and gals what are some of your most challenging temptations. Overwhelmingly, it was “FOOD AT HOME” that seems to be the biggest temptation for most people. So I thought it would be useful to give you some of my tips on how I beat...

Weekend Update

WOW!!! Is it feeling like winter where you are? I am not ready for this LOL! It seems to be that time of year again. Fall is leaving us and winter is on its way in. It won’t stop us though! We have goals. It can be pretty easy to start getting a little less active as the cold...

Javier is STILL Bringin...

Javier CRUSHED it!  There is no other way to describe it!  Not only did he get phenomenal results with P90X and the Asylum Challenge (as you will see below).  His P90X results landed him on the P90X facebook fan page even, which I love to brag about because it shows everyone that...

Midweek Motivation

This is work. Plain and simple. It takes effort. Sacrifice. Determination. Embrace it and make the most of it! If it was easy…. everyone would do it. But you don’t want what everyone has. The easy way. You want more! Let’s get it teamRIPPED! ×Related Posts:No...

R U Losing Motivation??

This was one of my VERY first posts when I started teamRIPPED! And man, it still holds true today. Take a little trip back to the beginning… and get motivated! One thing I absolutely LOVE about the P90X workouts (and the other Beachbody workouts for that matter), is the little...

Spartan Race Gear

Spartan Races and other Obstacle Course Races (OCR) are a blast! It’s the perfect way to enjoy your fitness and push yourself to do more. I just finished my 2014 Trifecta for the Spartan Race series (Sprint – Super – Beast) at the start of November in Dallas. It was a...

Weekend Update

November is here! This really always feels like a final push to the end of the year. For most people, it takes 4 weeks of being dialed in and working hard to start seeing the changes. Give that another 4 weeks and the people around you will start noticing more and more. Where do you want...

From the Vault: Brandon...

Pulling this one out of the Hall of Fame VAULT cuz it’s too good to pass up! When Brandon sent me his final pics and my jaw hit the floor.  He looks incredible.  He reminds me a lot of my coach, Josh Spencer, in these Day 90 pics.  Congrats Brandon!  These are some of the best...

Midweek Motivation

Are you running on E? Has a busy Fall got you down? Well it’s time to pick yourself up and shake it off. It’s about progress. Your dreams, your goals, all happen one day at a time. You can’t give up. Each day matters and each day can move you closer to your goals. Get...

Round 1 Nutrition

I’ve been doing Beachbody programs exclusively for over 4 years now (almost 5), and my nutrition plan has changed a few times depending on my goals.  I’ve talked a lot about nutrition for bulking, nutrition for maintaining, etc.  But it’s been a while since I talked...

Counting Calories and T...

Counting calories and tracking nutrition with MyFitnessPal is the best way to get amazing results with any program. The nutrition plans from P90X, Body Beast, The Asylum, etc all do a great job of laying the ground work for your plan. But you have to track what you eat to KNOW you are...

Weekend Update

Have you been able to fit off the Fall Stall?! I have received a lot of emails and messages from people saying that was just what they needed to hear. If you are still just standing still with your journey… DON’T! You have everything you need to really commit and make this...

Transformations Thursda...

One of my favorite posts to pull together each week is the transformation post I run on Thursdays. Transformation stories are motivating! They pump me and just leave me feeling good. It’s something about hearing about the various situations and circumstances that drive people to...

Midweek Motivation: YOT...

It’s time for the Midweek Motivation of the week! This week I threw it out to the Year of the Beast for them to post some pics for this MM post. I got a TON of responses. So I’m using them all! These are just some of the faces of YOTB and teamRIPPED! So proud to see all the...

The Squat and Deadlift

With so many people doing Body Beast for a long time, it was only a matter of time until I saw a lot of guys using barbells for their lifts. I use barbells a lot too. Using a barbell for the squat and deadlift makes perfect sense. Barbells won’t overload your grip while doing the...

BCAAs: Branched Chain A...

BCAAs or branched chain amino acids are essential for your body to function. We are able to get BCAAs through our diet, and more specifically through the proteins we eat. BCAAs are made up of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The main use of BCAAs that we are interested in is their...

Weekend Update

*** Sorry for any site issues the last couple days. I had some maintenance done yesterday than cause another issue on the server side of things. That was all fixed… THEN this morning the server was getting some hardware upgrades LOL Man, we could win. But it should be all good now....

YOTB Coach: Chris Cobur...

Chris Coburn is a leader on teamRIPPED. There is no other way to say it. Chris has been a big part of the team for a long time and his ongoing transformation is really inspiring! Chris never started out as a huge, overweight guy. He fought the other battle. Still shredding BF but wanting...
