My College & HS Bballers - 100 C/Sq/PP in 20 min. great!!
Feeling a bit better again today...had to as i worked from 8-12 on MBG chicago, 12-1 class, 1-2:30 training Wesley Matthews (Portaland Trail Blazers) and one of his teammates from HS who is now a college stud:), ate lunch, then was back at it from 4-6:30pm, then trained then taught some of my new trainers some...long day...ate dinner at 8:45pm tonight!!:) haha, long day...BUT a good day:)
Got my MBG 1 in leading the beginner Eischens Yoga sequence for the noon class:) That is a great way to get your Eischens Yoga training in...teach it before every class:) That is what we do at the Monkey Bar Gymnasium every day, every class:) I asked my students today if they liked doing it every day before class and 100% said YES!!:) haha, okay just checking i said:) we've been doing it every day at the MBG for many years, it is why we dont have people in pain, dont have any serious back or knee pains or neck pains:) not bad for 12 minutes a day:) haha
MBG 2: 
Handstand Walks - 36 yards, 36 yards, 35 yards = 107 yards...this is great!! Not feeling 100% yet and to do these numbers at the end of a 12 hours day is great!!! very very happy with these numbers.
Rope climbs - 40 feet, 40 feet, 40 feet = 120 yards...just did this pretty easy for 40 feet a set and felt good on this as well:)
alternated these two and took my times between sets til finished with 3 sets each.
Power Wheel + 52lb vest speed crawls - 30 yards afap: 22 seconds, *21 seconds (this is my new record!! and i feel great about this as well...if i can keep this pace i will hit the 100 yards in a little over 60 seconds which is my goal...under 1:20)
Power Wheel + 52lb vest crawl for distancce - *45 yards...really happy about this!! at the end of my workout, after doing two hard sets of power wheel crawls to hit 45 yards is great!!! Very confident with these:)
Was pretty tired before this workout but had to do it:) and i'm really happy i did:) GREAT WORKOUT!!

  1. Hey Jon!
    Man you keep busy buddy! I hope I can be that busy in the fitness industry one day... I reckon if I keep following the Monkey bar philosophy and the passion I have the rest will follow!
    I squeezed a workout in yesterday as I had to help out Paul & Despina (Legendary people! You are very lucky to have these two open the first MBG in Oz!)
    Anyway back to the fun stuff like working out... hahaha
    I have a goal to do 100mtrrs on the power wheel without stopping… So I chucked a 22lbs vest on and did 100mtrs(20,20,20,20,20) as fast as I could. Broke my record and posted 3:10min.
    Very happy with the effort considering I was kayaking the whole weekend!
    I then did two rounds of the FBI workout and finished off with beginner sequence EY.
    Good luck with all the travelling – Sounds like you will have to get the balance right between rest and work!

    Breakfast – Smoothie: Mixed berries, Ginger, banana, spinach, cucumber, dates, water, Pea Protein, mango, ground flaxseed
    Lunch – sushi (tofu, avo, carrot)
    Dinner – veg stew – YUM!!!!

    And lots of fruit and nuts during the day.

    All the best

    P.s. Hurry up and get to Oz already!!! ;))
