Tonight let’s touch on the importance of grip strength for law enforcement officers! For reasons that are pretty obvious, this is crucial in our line of work. We must be able to control a suspects hands who is reaching for your gun, his gun, or any weapon that could be used on you, etc.
A quick and easy exercise movement to build on your grip strength is the farmers walk. I love these because they can literally be done anywhere, at any time. Besides building your grip and forearm strength, it works your back and shoulders as well.
If you're at the gym, grab some Dumbbells or kettle bells and walk for a set time. 45-60 seconds. Rest and repeat.
If you're home, just throw a bunch of crap in 2 book-bags or shopping bags and walk around the house for 45-60 seconds. Rest and repeat.
What about you? What is your favorite trip building exercise? Maybe we can help each other out and give others different options. •
It has been quite some time since I worked to actually put on some weight. But the time has come. I’ve been hanging around 195 for a little too long.
As I stand in my kitchen, conveniently holding my shaker cup in a flex position 🤐🤷♂️, I want to remind you guys that nothing will ever substitute real foods. It's just the truth. But that doesn't mean I don't love me a good protein shake as one of my meals when I am in a rush to start my 45-60 minute commute. Especially when I’m in a caloric surplus and getting all my meals the natural way is not always possible. It also doesn't hurt that I drink the absolute best tasting protein out there either.
On the go, I just throw in 2 scoops of protein and 16 ounces of water. Shake and drink.
If you count your macros, I'll post them below.
