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...

Midweek Motivation

What’s good teamRIPPED?! Time for another weekly dose of motivation. Here are just a few from their Facebook fan page. You may even recognize some faces from teamRIPPED ;-) These people all submitted their stories and results and won $500! And you get a t-shirt! If you want in,...

Updates coming to teamR...

Hey teamRIPPED! Just  wanted to give y’all a heads up that some updates are coming to teamRIPPED! I’m putting in some work on the main menu and navigation of the site. The site will remain the same for the most part, but you will see some changes over the next few days. If...

Calorie Calculator

Calorie Calculator? Isn’t that just a regular calculator? Yes, and no. I am sure you have poured over your P90X, Insanity, or Body Beast guidebooks and have come to some equations for calculating your caloric needs for the program. They are all a little different, but they can all...

Staying Motivated on a ...

Staying motivated on a diet can be tough! As with a lot of things, it’s easy to be fired up at the beginning but we tend to lose focus along the way. That is natural, but there is TONS you can do to help avoid it and protect yourself. I want to thank Chris G for the suggestion for...

Weekend Update

Friday is here! Did you make it a great week? I hope you did! I know that a lot of people have a tendency to slack off on their fitness during the fall, so I’m issuing a CHALLENGE to all of you.  DON’T SLACK OFF!!  Just because it’s easier to hide an out-of-shape body in sweats during...

Double Transformation T...

A double transformation?!?! You bet! Both James and Josclyn send me in their transformations… and they are both awesome! I decided to combine them in a post to give you a double shot of motivation! Their stories and lives my be unrelated, but they both are perfect examples of what...

Coffee…

Coffee, P90X, Insanity, Body Beast… do they go together? Heck, does coffee and health belong in the same sentence? No matter who you are, you probably have an opinion about coffee. It tends to be a love or hate type of thing. With all the opinions out there, I thought it would be...

Push Ups and Pull Ups: ...

For a lot of Beachbody workouts, it’s pretty clear what muscle groups you are targeting. If you put in P90X Chest and Back, you know you are working your chest and your back. But have you ever wondered what muscles are all working? There is a lot going on for many of the moves you...
