Ninja Secrets

"You get out what you put in." Have you ever heard that one?? I'm sure you have. That's what it's like training here. Without harmful chemicals or drugs I'm always looking to improve performance and recovery. In this entry I share the latest products I'm using. I'm going to add these to my Pinterest-Ninja-Secrets-board. Click the links for more info.

I refer to these drinks as "real" fast-food, as in this is the only "fast food" you'd catch me eating; or this is the only "fast food" I would recommend... just saying. I'm just now looking at the label after using it for about a month, and they pack so much nutrition. The product was given to me as a gift... I know what you're thinking - why would I ingest something without looking at the label? Well in my defense the product came from a reputable source. Any-who I have two kinds: Vanilla Spiced Chai and Chocolate Cacoa. In terms of flavor I definitely recommend the chocolate one. I was reading some reviews, some people make shakes because they don't care for the texture or the flavor. I guess I'm "Spartan" like that cuz I just mix with water, post-workout.

Bed-time Rub

I have been really putting this stuff to the test and it's awesome. For some reason I have been really injury-prone lately. Among other things I clashed my knee on someone's shin and I can't stop jamming my right thumb. Topricin helps me maintain the thumb issue and I'm not sure how many days my knee would have been out of commission without this stuff. The first time I used it was on my Sciatica and the next morning I woke up feeling a lot better. Don't quote me but I would definitely choose this over dit da jao. What do you use for injuries? http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dit_da_jow


Energy cleanser

I started using Palo Santo a year ago after we had a... let's call it a "spooky" experience around the mountain. I was soon to be alone to watch the property for about two weeks and some of the guests were concerned for my... "spiritual" safety (thank you guys) so it was suggested I burn sage and Palo Santo. I took to the Holy Wood instantly. If you like incense I recommend it. The smell took me back to my early twenties when I lived in Orlando Florida and I would frequent this new-age book store quite often. So I have been using it almost daily before laying my head down, with the intention of clearing the air.
