I have Type 2 Diabetes, can I still exercise?

Count Down: 6 Days! The race is just around the corner and what am I doing? Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, thats what! I love what it does for my fast twitch muscles. It really helps me with my sprinting conditioning during the week. Sunday morning training BJJ training always kicks my butt though. I train wi..

Friday was rest day. Work was excellent, my diet was great and my sleep was awesome.  I made sure to fuel my body right for running 6.2 miles this morning. The run itself was beautiful. We ran it at 7AM with more running mates than the previous week. I would have to venture a guess t..

Last night was Jiu Jitsu night. It was a great full body workout. Its gets pretty brutal when you have a heavy cotton uniform on and training with temperatures at 80+ humid heat. It really helps to stay light for running. It also balances my whole body’s fitness out so I am not just running o..

Today was a long day. I woke up at 5 and did yet another 2 mile run with intervals of sprints. Afterwards I drank the last of my protein powder and left the house with a greek yogurt in my hand. Greek yogurt is great alternative to a normal yogurt – it has probiotics and twice the amount of pr..

Sunday mornings is always Jiu Jitsu training time. It’s a great to come in the morning and get an hour or more’s worth of training in before noon. Jiu Jitsu helps me with my explosive muscle power and breathing for sprints (which I need to do more of). After the intense No-Gi training S..
