Dumbbell Workouts

Set a pair of dumbbells on the floor in front of you.  Bend at your hips and knees, and grab the dumbbells with an overhand grip.  Your arms should be straight, and your lower back slightly arched, not rounded. Keep your chest up, and stand up by squeezing your glutes, and using your hamstrings to support you standing up.  Return to starting position.

Tip:  Squeeze your glutes and push for hips forward.

Thrusters

Use the Dumbbells and make sure your palms are facing each other next to our shoulders.  Feet shoulder width apart and squat until the top of your thighs are parallel to the floor.  Push your body to standing position and press the dumbbells directly over your shoulders.  Lower your shoulders back to starting position.

2-3 smoked turkey necks or wings (or whichever part of the turkey you prefer)

BIG MAN’S BURGER

clean eating

 

Please keep in mind that this portion size is for occasions only.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 pounds of grass fed beef

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Add sea salt and pepper to taste ( I add garlic powder also)

4 whole wheat hamburger buns or whole wheat pitas

Toppings:

8 round onion slices (small onion)

Organic ketchup

Organic mustard

1 cup of mixed green, yellow, and red peppers (chopped into thin slices)

4 large leaves of romaine lettuce

Preparation:

Take each pound of grass fed beef and cut it into two halves; therefore you will have four balls of grass fed beef.  Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add any of your favorite seasonings.   Depending on the size of your pan, cook 1-2 burgers at a time, or cook all the together and cover the frying pan.  The steam will help the burger cook faster and it will be nice and moist.  Cook 3-4 minutes on each side turning the burger and repeating the cooking time for each side until cooked to your desired taste.  I like my burgers well done.

Add toppings and serve.

This dish came from DDIYF.  Add the oven fried sweet potatoes, located in clean recipes,  with this dish.

I will rightly guide you!
