Personal Trainer- CP Training

RODRIGO DA MATTA

From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Rodrigo moved to the US with a collegiate athletic scholarship for soccer. He also has a background in martial arts and cycling. HE is certified by NASM and has been a trainer and athletic coach for over 20 years.

 

Since it's DAY 14, we are switching it up and offering you new things.

 

Rodrigo's workouts are so good, AND he has gifted us with two of them!

 

One focuses on unilateral work. It will challenge your balance and Neurosystem. It will really expose your weaker side, which is a great opportunity to improve body function overall.

 

The second workout works both sides at the same time, creating symmetry in the body. It's more power driven, sure to give you the burn of your life.

 

5-10 lbs FREE WEIGHTS are OPTIONAL!

You can use any household item that is safe and has some weight to it.

You may choose to do the 2 workout series back to back (31 minutes total) or save the second workout for any other day.

This is a TOTAL BODY workout with focus on the CORE.

Enjoy!

GET OUT OF YOUR BOX

  DO YOU REMEMBER THE VERY FIRST NUTRITIONAL CHALLENGE?  

 

If you answered "add color to your meals", you are correct!

We started with something very simple but that could literally flip your health upside down, and for the better! WHY? Because the more color you add to your plate the higher are your chances of getting all the Vitamins and Minerals you need to THRIVE, not merely survive. No SUPPLEMENTS!

I thought so hard about what Nutritional subjects I should touch base on to educate you and not overwhelm you. I hope you found value in each of the Challenges, and that you might have even tried some of them and  even adopted them in your lifestyle.

 

Today I selfishly would love to share something i have been personally working on: GETTING OUT OF MY BOX. Everything I believe about food, what I eat and how I eat I have learned throughout the years. It was taught to me and I decided somewhere along the way it was the right thing for me.

One of my beliefs is that animal protein is better (or more efficient?) than plant protein. Then I met a beautiful lady, Porctia Symone, who's been coming to my 3XT classes in San Diego, and she challenged me to do one week of this #RAWgust challenge with her. for one week she challenged me to only eat raw foods. That obviously eliminates a lot of my animal protein since I cook all my animal protein. It also eliminated processed foods for the obvious reasons.

One day we ate lunch at this amazing place here in San Diego called PEACE PIES. They are a raw restaurant. You guys, the food I ate... I could NOT believe it was raw! It was incredibly tasty and my body was so happy. I also noticed my stomach got fuller faster.

Porctia has  a vegan account on Instagram @PorctisApron , and I asked her if she could share with me a recipe that is all plant based (yes, cooked, don't worry!) and high in protein.

She did.

Since she is still doing the RAW challenge for the remainder of August, she couldn't eat what she made so she gave it to me. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE!

So for today's challenge, not only we are going to share this recipe with you, but I will also challenge you to get out of your box and try foods that you usually don't eat daily. Are you willing to get out of your box (the box of your current knowledge and beliefs) and look for foods high in protein, or fiber, or healthy fats, or complex carbohydrates that you might want to add to your diet? Are you willing to expand your box?

JAMAICAN CURRY CHICKPEA 

(scroll down for video)

Ingredients for Quinoa:

  • 1 Tbsp of Oil of choice

  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Rainbow Peppers and Onions (all together)

  • Seasonings: Adobo, Himalayan pink salt, garlic pepper, creole seasoning.

  • 1 Cup of Veggie Broth (preferably organic)

  • 1 Cup of Spinach

  • 1 Cup of Quinoa

Ingredients for Jamaican Curry Chickpea:

  • 2 Tbsp of Oil of your choice

  • 1 Tbsp of minced Garlic

  • 1/2 Cup of Chopped Red Onions

  • 1/2 Cup of Cherry Tomatoes

Seasonings: Pink Himalayan salt, Garlic pepper, Cayenne*, Jamaican rub*, Curry powder

*It can get a little spicy, so if you prefer it to be less spicy, cut back on cayenne and Jamaican rub. Use only 1 teaspoon.

  • 1 Cup of Almond Milk

  • 1/2 Cup of Veggie Broth

  • 1/4 Cup of Nutritional Yeast

  • 2 Tbsp of Agave

  • 2 Cans of Chickpeas

COOKING DIRECTIONS FOR THE QUINOA

  • Add 1 Tbsp of any oil of your choice to a boiling pot.

  • Add 1/2 Cup of chopped rainbow peppers and onions. Once sautéed to a light crisp, add your favorite seasonings. I like:

1 Tbsp of adobo

1 Tbsp of  Himalayan pink salt

1 Tbsp of garlic pepper

1 Tbsp of creole seasoning

  • Let it all sauté for about 5 minutes. 

  • Next, add 1 cup of veggie broth and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil.

  • Once boiling, add 1 cup of spinach and 1 cup of quinoa. Let it boil for 5 minutes.

  • Cover the pot wit lid and bring heat to low for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Your Quinoa is now ready to serve!

COOKING DIRECTIONS FOR THE JAMAICAN CURRY CHICKPEA

  • Add 2 Tbsp of oil of your choice to a frying pan.

  • Add 1 Tbsp of garlic and 1/2 cup of chopped red onion. Sauté until golden brown- make sure heat is on medium, so you don't burn them (they cook fast).

  • Once golden, add 1/2 Cup of Cherry Tomatoes. Let it cook on Medium Heat for about 3 mins then add your seasonings below:

1 Tbsp of Pink Himalayan salt

1 Tbsp of garlic pepper

1 Tbsp of cayenne*

1 Tbsp of Jamaican rub*

1 Tbsp of curry powder

  • Sauté for 2 mins.

  • Add 1 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of veggie broth,  1/4 cup of nutritional yeast, and 2 Tbsp of agave. Let broth come to a boil, still on Medium Heat.

  • Add chickpeas and cover with lid. Let it cook for 15 to 20 mins. 

If it’s still too spicy add more almond milk and let it cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Your Jamaican Curry chickpeas are ready to serve! Serve it with the Quinoa.

This meal is very high in protein. It should keep you full for a while. Feel free to add more color to your plate.
