I have always enjoyed sports and working out is a large part of playing sports. No matter what sport you play, physical conditioning plays a large part in being good at you’re your chosen sport. I am always looking for new things to add to my workouts.
After researching Mike Mahler's training philosophy and seeing his attitude to life, I decide to add parts of his work out to mine. One of them was Russian kettlebells. I even have some here in China.
Mike Mahler wrote a book and I contacted him to see if he could do a short interview for our readers. He graciously agreed, I hope you enjoy.
Mr Jackson: As a vegan can you give us an example of what you eat during a typical day?
作为一个素食主义者，您能给我们举个例子么？您一般情况下每天吃些什么？Mike Mahler：I like to have a protein shake for breakfast loaded with pea protein, rice protein, juiced beets, cucumber, celery, and kale. Then I add frozen acai, BCAA, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Finally I add Udo's oil for EFA and cacao for a good source of mineral and saturated fat which is important for optimal hormone levels.
午餐的时候，我会吃一大份绿色沙拉，混合了鹰嘴豆沙、大麻籽、胡萝卜和橄榄油。Post workout I have a shake similar to breakfast.
Mr Jackson: Can you tell us a little about your book, and what exactly it means to "Live life
Mike Mahler： It is an anti self-help book that tells people what they need to do to take charge of their lives. It is all about taking the time to do self inventory and then deciding exactly what one wants and accepting the sacrifices that are required to achieve goals.
Mr Jackson: Finally any parting advise for our readers would be appreciated (my audience is mostly teachers, and students from middle school to university).
Mike Mahler：Don't let anyone else tell you what to do with your life or what you are capable of. Decide exactly what is important to you and have the courage to make the necessary sacrifices to make it happen.
Mr Jackson: Thanks again for your time. You philosophy (diet, exercise, and life in particular), and some of the books on your suggested reading list have been a great influence on me. I wish you even more success in the future.
