Brought to you by “Sandra Crowe” Holistic Nutritionist

You’ve just got back from an intense training session and arrive home to a hungry family. Even though your body is tired from your workout, you can still get a healthy meal on the table for your family in 30 minutes. I like this recipe because everything goes in the oven together, so while it’s cooking, you can hop in the shower and pretend like you’ve been slaving over the stove. The other great thing about this recipe is that the chicken is kind of plain (yup- you heard me right- it’s boring). This chicken is great for cooking extra for meal prepping for the week, and using the chicken for other purposes. Tonight eat it with a gravy or tzatziki. Tomorrow use it for lunch in salad. Next meal slice it and season it with tex-mex to make fajitas.

Muscle Up


No time for the gym. No worries. We’re here to help build up your exercise library and NO equipment is involved. Check out this plyometric full body beginner exercise.

90-Degree Jump Squat Twist
Position your feet into a slightly wider than shoulder width stance with your toes slightly pointed out and knees slightly bent. Bring your arms to your chest, tucking in your elbows at your side. Keep your neck neutral and maintain a straight back. This will be your starting position.
Descend into a squat by pushing your hips and butt backwards. Continue down until the upper legs are at or just below parallel to the floor.
Once you reach your bottom position, powerfully push through your heels to jump upwards.
As you ascend into the air, rotate 90-degrees to your right.
Once you land (land on balls of your feet), immediately transition into a subsequent squat and propel yourself upwards, again rotating 90-degrees. Repeat four times (a complete 360-degrees) for one repetition.
Repeat for 12-15 repetitions.
