FFD Workout: I Want the Juice!!!

by Sean Croxton & Kirk Hensler

What a week!

This has definitely been the most productive week I’ve had in a long time. So sad to see it end.

BUT it’s time to take a break and have some FUN!

Today, we’re kicking off the weekend with another Friday Fun Day workout.

Personal trainer, martial artist, and organic farmer, Kirk Hensler of Hale Holistic makes his Underground Wellness debut as he puts me through this grueling 4-minute challenge.

Definitely the longest 4 minutes of my life!

Let’s see what you got! Here are the movements.

* 10 Jumping Jacks
* 10 Push Ups
* 10 Squats
* 10 High/Low Planks

See how many times you can go through the circuit in 4 minutes. The first round is easy, but don’t be fooled. It gets harder!

Be sure to watch the entire video. Kirk and I have a yummy organic treat for you.

Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming Grow Your Own organic gardening video series. Kirk and I are going to show YOU step-by-step how to grow your own food. Audience participation is highly encouraged!

Check out Hale Holistic on Facebook.

And be sure to download last night’s UW Radio show to learn the facts about osteoporosis. Another great show!

Happy Friday!

See you next week.

Juiced: The Green Smoothie!

This was YUMMY!

Today, Melissa Henig aka The Raw Food Stylist stopped by the Underground Wellness kitchen to give me a lesson in juicing.

I must admit that I’m new to juicing. I’ve been meaning to buy a Vitamix for at least a year now, but just haven’t pulled the trigger. Probably because I’m not the biggest fan of veggies. Yes, I eat them. But I’d rather eat a thousand other foods before munching on kale.

After today’s session, I now understand why people are so into it. It actually makes the vegetables taste good! And it’s much easier to get them down the hatch when they’re served in a cup.

Check out today’s video. We filmed three today. Be on the lookout for Melissa’s Sun Dried Tomato Spaghetti and Detox Salad recipes coming up later on this week.

If you’d like to try The Green Smoothie recipe, here’s what you’ll need:

* handful of spinach
* handful of kale
* 1 banana
* 1/2 cup frozen mango
* 1 inch ginger
* 1 piece of lemon
* 1 apple
* 1 cup of ice
* 1 cup of water
* sweetener of choice….dates, figs, honey, maple

See you tomorrow! Gonna blog about cell phones. You’re not gonna believe this!
