I run the Cave as a “strength-based” coaching center. I believe in lifting heavy and that strength drives all human movement. I eat a lot of grass-fed beef, organic eggs, free-range meats, and wild-caught fish in addition to plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits. You might wonder, with such healthy eating, why I also use supplements. Great question! Here’s why: I cannot cook that kind of meal when I get done training, there just isn’t time. Before and after work, it’s no problem. At work, however,


it’s just not going to happen. That’s where I rely on Game Plan  I take Game Plan Protein before i train, then Recovery Punch right after training. This is extremely important to my seeing good progress from my training. Later in the day, I take some more protein (the chocolate is my favorite) whenever I get hungry. I take the Life Pack Vitamins,fish oil and greens every day, even when I am not at the gym. Those of you who know me, know that I push myself hard. I make sure my body has  EVERYTHING it needs to rebuild, recover, and get stronger. That’s why I use Game Plan! Think about how you train and how you treat your body nutritionally. Why would anyone sabotage their training by not giving their body what it needs? Copy of logo_red

These are all sold, but we are ordering again soon!

I was looking at one product, called Sizzle, to see if it would be safe and effective for those wanting to lose body fat during out

Summer Body & Brawn Contest.

Since I always look at the caffeine content on any products of this type, at first I thought it was kind of high at 150 mg; but I decided to check it against one of my favorite beverages, Starbucks coffee. I usually get a Grande, and it has 330 mg of caffeine!

Look for yourself here

People should always do their “homework” before taking supplements, especially if they are taking prescription medications.

I think you will find that Sizzle might be a good choice for your fatloss program

quarterly strength test starts March 30
Every 3 months we test our crew on five different lifts, the tests are conducted throughout the week

  • squat
  • deadlift
  • bench press
  • clean (replaces hang power clean)
  • strict press (replaces Strongman log lift)

summer body & brawn contest starts April 1 (men & women)

Note:  This is not just about losing weight!

twelve weeks of training

winners are determined by

  • most improved figure or physique
  • heaviest deadlift
  • highest number of kettlebell swings in 10 minutes

Their 1 RM deadlift will be added to the weight moved on the kettlebell swings (lbs x reps) for final score

cash prizes and trophies for the winners (no, everyone is not a winner just because they entered)

I used this new sled along with some bodyweight exercises for a “killer” workout at the park.
