Cooking Tip: Use cooked quinoa in your smoothies! It thickens the smoothie and is a great carbohydrate to accompany fruit and protein flavours.
Training Tip: Does your back round in heavy squats and deadlifts? This is generally from a weak trunk and lats! So, to fix you need to add in more core work and upper body pulling movements. Try to not only do high rep volume on your core, add in max weight lifts for 1,3,5,7,8, and 10 reps. For you pulling movements think lat pull downs, seated rows, bent over rows, sled pulls (arms only). Use a mix of wide, close, pronated and supinated grips and mix up from max effort lifts to dynamic efforts with high volume!
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
It pairs aged, cured pork with Alaskan salmon, and a hint of sweetness from a Granny Smith apple. Sear that up and cook to an internal temp of 120ºF and you're golden. I served this over some Thomas Keller inspired whittled asparagus for a more complete meal, but overall, this one is heavy on protein.
