Brazil Bound + Upper Body Crusher

So, I not sure if you have been following me for some time now on this blog, if you have you may know that I was recently asked to travel out to Brazil.

Well, after some thought I took up my friends offer and I’ll be heading out of the country on Sept 3rd!

I’m super pumped!

It’s been a crazy last few days as I’ve been scurrying around trying to get a passport and a visa.

These things don’t come easy!

I’ve had to go through some crazy steps just to get my passport.

If you haven’t had to do this yet, your lucky!

I just got my passport back today and I’ll be sending it to Chicago to the Brazilian Consulate where I’ll then get my Visa to get into Brazil!

Craziness!

Anyways, I”ll be training a professional football team (yes they play American Football over there) as they prepare for their season!

I have a very close friend that is a huge part of the league and the team I’ll be training who invited me out for this amazing opportunity!

They are called Cuiabá Arsenal.

I’ll be showing them my training techniques for speed, agility, and power improvement as well as taking them through strength and conditioning workouts!

Word is they want me to play in a football game too!!!

I know, craziness right???

This caught me by surprise so I’m not sure what will happen!

So I may be lacing up the Nike’s once again!

I hope I can come back to America and say I scored a few TD’s in another country!  This would be SICK!

We will see when the time comes!  I’m most excited about getting to be in front of these athletes and teaching them what I know so they can get better at what they do!

They will CRUSH the competition after I work with them!   I have NO DOUBTS in my mind!

I’ll be keeping you updated on my up coming travels!

For now, here’s my workout I hit today!

This was a BRUISER!

    I have been 15-20 times to Brazil. This country is a paradise for me. I am sure you were the king on Ipanema and Copacabana beach.
    When do you come back to YouTube ?
