I executed the Cardio Abs this morning. It was awesome but a little much for the morning. My bones were not ready. Shaun T, my back hurts. Ouch. Very close to recovery week. I am almost half way through. Pros-I feel better and have more energy. My legs are not as sore as i when i first started. My back is a little sore. But when i stretch, it feels like heaven.
I am waiting for the Amerikans to premiere on FX. Although i am not really a fan of Keri Russell, the promo makes it intriguing. While i wait, i will be watching Law and Order. Standard Wednesday Night. Love it. The music in these shows always pull me in whether for familiarity or just a mood changer. hmm. wait, it is back on.
I am in WEEK 4 on the Insanity Program. Yes sir. First day, Pure Cardio. I love it. The variety gets me going. Knowing the exercises and the moves work. I am still not sure if i lost weight or just lose a lot of water. I followed the Pure Cardio with some old fashioned Sushi. Hmm. Always good after a workout.
Are you afraid of Ghetto Fied Dude in a Blouse? Well check out Trinidad James, his mixtape and on tour. It is nothing like this coming out of Atlanta. I am a little scared. Which makes me feel alive. Here is a taste of his videos below:
Week 3 is done. Wow. Abs are tighter, core is harder but Shaun T, i am still screaming by the end. Need to get through the whole thing without the screaming. Still have work to do. Those that want to join me, hit me up at email@example.com. Others share your stories. #brikmason #insanity.
My brother joined me on the mission to dissect and survive Insanity. Check his facebook. He saw me cry and lose breath and scream till it hurt. Still Cursing at Shaun T. But did i feel better? Hell Yeah. I need you to try insanity and send your results.
I went a great bar/restaurant/lounge tonight for a going away party. The night was fantastic. great conversation, jazz trio throughout the night, basketball and football talk, cold weather talk and ended the night talking about the waitresses chest. Hmm. I guess wine and beer will do that to you. A farewell to my friend.
Insanity was completed this morning. I need to focus on my eating habits. Did well most of the day but ate some pizza late night which kills the diet. The rules. What rules? Its NYC. It is cold. But that is not a excuse. I will be back on the grind tomorrow. Insanity program will lead me to greatness. I think. It better. Be well and have a good night.
Insanity is not in the books tonight. However, i like to trick my body so it will grow. Instead the wife and I ate some wheat thins, hummus and cheese. Iron Chef Dj was cooking up some new mixes for the weekend. Look out for a wedding mix and a 90's Hip Hop and Dance mix. Ohhhh I am excited.
I have decided to take my resolution and run with it. I am a Dj. I get the party started and entertain. This is my job and what i love to do. I am putting myself to a challenge. First I will do 60 days of the Insanity Program featuring Shaun T and advertised on TV as well as Beachbody.com. I will update via Twitter and this blog. Please tune in. I want to start recording the workouts as well.
WHY DO THIS INSANE PROGRAM:
1. TO GET IN SHAPE
2. TO GET OTHERS MOTIVATED TO GET IN SHAPE AND STAY IN SHAPE
3. TO HELP FIGHT OBESITY(A SERIOUS PROBLEM) IN THIS COUNTRY
4. TO BE A HEART HEALTHY INDIVIDUAL
5. TO CHALLENGE MYSELF-Mind, Body and Soul.
After this workout program, i will begin and complete another workout program(turbo fire, kickboxing, P90X(completed), Tapout, The new 50 Cent workout, Bootcamps). I want to change and affect lives through music and workouts.
PS. If you know of any fitness instructors or you are a fitness instructor and you want to collaborate ideas and programs, email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ok, so my brother in law put me on to Gunplay. I heard about him and seen him in videos with the Miami Favorite Rick Ross. MMG is what feels like the best label to be on at the moment. They are running the country(rap wise). Of course, TDE is putting out quality work. I digress, GunPlay is making moves. The Pros for Gunplay-street cred, paid dues, signed a deal with Def Jam, name is Gunplay(nuff said), quality music, Quality Mixtapes and when he has a guest vocal, he blows the competition out the water. Check out Power Circle from MMG compilation album. He just released a third mixtape that is off the charts and i actually have become a fan. Now, for all the naysayers or purest, he is not trying to save the world, he is trying to live in it. The Cons of Gunplay-a temper and a possible jail sentence(he was on house arrest). But maybe the rebel in him came out in real life more than on record. Check out videos below:
