Today I want to share with you a 5 Move-Metabolic Shoulder Workout using only dumbbells, but I also want to share with my pre-workout routine to get carbs in before killing it in the gym.

In order push yourself, go further and complete the best workout that you can, you need to be sure that your body is fully prepared with enough energy to keep you going the whole time. In order to do that, you need to be able to plan out a routine.

Because I want to be able to perform at my best, I start by eating a complete and balanced meal an hour before I plan on going to the gym.

Then, about 20 minutes before actually going to the gym, I eat some rice cakes and drink some beet juice. What this beet juice does is increase the oxygen uptake in your blood and giving you more energy for your workout. You don’t need too much and I normally only drink about 4-6 oz.

Once I am done with my rice cakes and beet juice, I prepare a shaker with about 20 oz of water, 1.5 scoops of BCAAs and a scoop of nnnSPORT®X-Cell.

nnnSPORT®X-Cell actually works at the molecular level to help you push your limits further and help your body recover faster once you have completed your workout.

And of course, if you’ve been following me on social media, then you know my favorite pre-workout is Grind coffee. Start off with a shot of espresso and add another if you need it. Caffeine is an amazing, all natural pre-workout!

Post workout, carbs are a MUST! No matter who you are. How many you should consume depends on the duration of your training, the intensity of your training and what your goals are.

Carbs post workout are necessary as they speed up recovery, push nutrients into the muscles, and they restore your glycogen levels [1, 2, 3].

  1. 8oz of Almond Milk
  2. 1/2 cup of Frozen Blueberries
  3. 1/2 a Banana
  4. 2/3 cup of Quinoa
  5. 2-3 scoops of your favorite Protein Isolate

Blend all of your ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
