Success! Half Ironman Triathlon (70.3)

I just successfully completed my first Half Ironman Triathlon (Ironman 70.3) with a time of 6 hours and 28 minutes.  My only goal was to complete the event without getting injured, and I succeeded!  I can improve my times on subsequent races.   My greatest accomplishment was completing the half marathon portion without stopping or walking as running is my weakest link in this sport.  For those of you that are unfamiliar, a Half Ironman is 70.3 miles total - a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run.  Those of you on the metric...

Scooby vs Bodybuilding.com – David vs. Goliath

All I want is for people to have safe supplements available, is that too much to ask? Why is the supplement industry lead by bodybuilding.com fighting me on this?  Why will the supplement industry not even do minimal testing on the products they sell?   I feel like David against Goliath here.  If the industry self regulated, it would be cheaper for everyone and probably allow more products to come to market faster.  By burying their heads in the sand on these supplement safety issues, the supplement industry will force the FDA to start regulating and then nobody wins.  Come...

Gaspari’s Myofusion Kerfuffle at Bodybuilding.com

Its been a really embarrassing month for bodybuilding.com. First a $7,000,000 by the FDA for laced supplements and now they are smack in the middle of the Gaspari's Myofusion protein powder debacle. In June 2012, someone on reddit discovers that Gaspari's Myofusion only has about half the protein that the label states and publishes their test results.  Bodybuilding.com is probably the nations leading seller of this protein powder and pushes it all the time on their website. The Gaspari team's response left even people on the bodybuilding.com forums incredulous. Gaspari chose the disgraced testing lab Covance and promised additional testing later which never materialized. For...

#1 Most Important Safety Device For Bicyclists

A helmet is what people always put at the top of the list, it helps with a 20mph car collision but doesnt help much if the car is going 50mph.  My #1 device is one that keeps your pretty helmet from getting scratched :) Less than 60 minutes ago my happy mood turned gray as I saw the aftermath of yet another cyclist getting hit by a car. When I rode by there were three police cars, a fire truck, and the ambulance had already left. The twisted commuter bike (I could tell by the panniers) did not bode well...

Bad Supplements At Bodybuilding.com – $7,000,000 FDA Fine

FDA fines bodybodybuilding.com $7,000,000 for selling steroids masquerading as dietary supplements and their president gets personally fined $600,000.  First let me address those of you who are mad at the FDA because you WANT to buy supplements laced with steroids.  Ask yourself this, if bodybuilding.com didn't notice something as obvious as steroids in the supplements then what are the chances they would notice supplements laced with lethal substances like mercury, lead, or arsenic?  They wouldn't!  Your trust in the supplement industry and retailers like bodybuilding.com is foolhardy, you are gambling with your life.  Below are the products sold by bodybuilding.com that caused the...

Shattering Weight Loss Plateaus

Shattering Weight Loss Plateaus A lot of people report that they make good progress losing weight at first but then their progress stalls.  Lets first look at some of the reasons that your fat loss progress can stop: You have lost weight but not adjusted your caloric intake downward, this is the #1 reason for stalling.  Remember that each time you lose 5lbs you need to recalculate your caloric requirements.  A 3300 calorie diet will let a 300 pound person lose 5lbs a month but when they drop to 240lbs they will cease to lose weight because 3300 calories is...

When are millions of people going to wise up to the fact that there are no shortcuts to losing fat, getting ripped 6-pack abs, and gaining muscle?
