I am a former collegiate athlete at Columbia University in New York City, where I played football and ran track.
Over the course of my career I have had the privilege of working with numerous strength and conditioning professionals from the collegiate level to the NFL.
After graduating, I've been able to compile workouts that I find most beneficial into a single workout plan.
Due to the large amount of inquiries in regards to my fitness regiment on social media, I decided to offer my techniques publicly. This includes my full detailed workout plan along with instructional videos, explaining some of the more complex workouts.

At a time when Black Lives Matter was illuminating a seemingly unending epidemic of police killings of unarmed black men, an image of black gay fathers in a tender moment with their daughters had a particularly poignant resonance.
"I knew I’d never be as great as I could be as the police are designed to oppress minorities"
The fact that a family selfie on Instagram was noticed at all simply demonstrated how rare such images are in a culture in which black men are routinely demonised as threats to, rather than emblems of, the American family.
It was no bad thing that Kordale and Kaleb were also easy on the eye, and looked like fathers who knew how to enjoy one another’s company after the lights were out. The photo garnered more than 54,000 likes, and has been followed by a steady stream of typical family portraits that show them celebrating birthdays and holidays as well as the birth, last October, of Caleb IV, the latest edition to the family.
Today, KordalenKaleb (to use their Instagram handle) are sitting in their spacious kitchen sharing pizzas with the kids. A dog runs around, alert to the heightened energy as Kaleb preps his hookah with Mojito-flavoured tobacco and Kordale fiddles over the filters for an Instagram selfie.
Yet, against the upbeat fairy tale of the couple’s social media, the story that Kordale tells of his childhood is a cold-water bath of reality, one that makes his success as a father all the more affecting. And it helps illuminate the love and energy and sheer tenaciousness that he’s invested with Kaleb in building a home for their children.

As a freshman at the Darnell-Cookman Middle/High School of Medical Arts, in Jacksonville, Florida, Tony Hansberry II had already come up with a surgical technique that may help surgeons reduce the risk of complications when performing surgical operations.
Tony’s technique, called the “Hansberry Stitch” improved how the top of the vagina (the vaginal cuff) is sutured after a hysterectomy which can reduce surgery time, pain and complications for the 600,000 women annually. In fact, his new technique will allow surgeons to complete their operations by stitching the patients back up after having a hysterectomy in one third of the time that it would normally take them. Physicians at The University of Florida invited Tony to present his project alongside theirs during a medical education event and to teach the others his technique.
That’s right, and he was only 14.
The young medical genius, Tony Hansberry II, reviewed various techniques of several surgeries, including hysterectomies and the instruments to perform these operations. He came up with a novel idea to be used when stitching back up the patients. The idea will help surgeons, especially those with fewer surgeries under their belt.
Hansberry came up with this idea back in 2009, when he was still a student at the Florida school.
“I’m the type of person who always wanted to be in medicine,” confesses Hansberry. “I love the idea of becoming a trauma surgeon.”
The young medical genius, who was encouraged to take up advanced classes in medicine at the Darnell-Cookman school, said that he came up with the idea because he wanted to help the patients and the surgeons. He added that his ambition was to become a well respected and competent neurosurgeon.
Hansberry came up with the idea to help surgeons and patients alike when he was studying at Shands Hospital, Jacksonville, while enrolled at the University of Florida’s Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research. He perfected his technique by practicing on a medical dummy.
According to Angela Tenbroeck, lead medical teacher at the University of Florida, Hansberry was far advanced compared to his classmates, when it comes to surgical techniques. She stated that he was on par with a first-year medical student at any university and was proud to have him as a member of her school.
Now 22, Hansberry studied chemistry at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. He hopes to become a surgeon someday, and make a difference in the lives of others.
“That’s what I love about the idea of medicine: the fact that you can change so many lives with just your hands” Tony said.
