Milo Wants More Power!
Start With The Best Tools
Here's what you'll need...
Be sure to set out all your ingredients before you begin.
1 cup milk
1 well-rounded tablespoon of peanut butter
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 heaping tablespoon health shake powder, soy protein powder
1 tablespoon honey
7 frozen strawberries or peach slices
3 ice cubes
fruit juice or milk as needed to keep things stirring
Here's what you'll do...
Put all of the non-frozen ingredients in your blender. BLEND for a count of 20.
DO 20 SQUATS WHILE YOU ARE WAITING!!!
Turn the blender to high speed. Add the strawberries or peach slices one at a time with a 10 count between each addition.
DO 10 SQUATS BETWEEN EACH ADDITION!!!
(If your blender protests, add a little fruit juice) Add the ice cubes one at a time with a count of 10 between each addition.
DO 10 SQUATS BETWEEN EACH ADDITION!!! Turn off your blender, stretch your legs, and enjoy your shake!!! You have just done 100 squats!!! If you do this consistently (2-3 times a week) you will definitely see results within a month!!!
If squats are hard on your knees, remember that even a slight dip has positive effects on your hips and thighs. If you can't do squats at all, or if you can't do 100, substitute some other exercise, for example, you could do 10 bicep curls, 10 triceps curls, 10 military presses, a variety of stretches, etc. The point is to make it a habit to do something with those 2 minutes or so while you make your healthy shake. Believe me, this small investment of time will bring big returns if done consistently!!
