Zyzz, Jeff Seid and Health

With Jeff Seid going into the hospital and having a tumor removed this month, it is a perfect opportunity to revisit a subject near and dear to my heart - looking aesthetic is NOT the same as being healthy!    Lets look back at an image that I made back in May of 2014 from my post on "The King Of Aesthetics" that kind of says it all: I know nothing about Jeff Seid and his medical condition but I wish him a speedy recovery.  I obviously can't say that doing cardio would have prevented Jeff's tumor, probably not.  ...

$10 Cycling Jersey With Attitude

I just don't understand cycling "fashion".  Since when is it fashionable to wear ill-fitting, ugly shirts plastered with advertisements?  Seriously!  How important are those two pockets on the back of the jersey?  I for one have ditched cycling jerseys all together in favor of performance and style.  Most cycling jerseys are loose which means that they flap in the wind.  Flapping means lots of wind resistance, something that I personally would like to minimize on long rides.  I find form fitting shirts like the Under Armor long sleeve compression shirts to be perfect for sun protection and warmth.  If you...

Cheap Halloween Costumes For Bodybuilders

Its time to start thinking about your Halloween costume for 2015 now. Do NOT leave it to the last minute because then you will do something really, really lame.  We have all seen those Halloween stores that pop up in every empty store in malls across the nation in October filled with ill-fitting, poor quality, expensive halloween costumes. If you wait till the last minute then that is what you are going to end up with and none of them look good on anyone with a physique becuase they are made for the average American. For less than $10 you...

Does Scooby workout at home?

OMG, I thought Scooby works out at home.  Does he workout in a gym or at home? He posted a photo from a gym so does he workout at home or at a gym? He does home workout videos, is this cheating? Chill pill time! :) A gym is not a room with magical properties that makes muscles grow, its a building with weights in it. As long as you have enough weight plates, there is no reason that a home gym is any less suited to building muscle mass and gaining strength than a commercial gym is. Yes, I...

Dont waste food!

I get very tired of people who are preachy about wasting food.   If you don't like food being wasted then DO SOMETHING, don't preach about what others should do!  Many people seem to be under the erroneous impression that simply eating all the food on your plate prevents you from wasting it - nothing can be further from the truth.  Just because you clean your plate does NOT mean you didn't waste food, in fact, lets look at the two most common ways that food is wasted: 40% of our food supply is thrown away by grocery stores and people...

Lose weight, get rich!

Strangely enough, if you have the skills to lose weight and stay fit then you have precisely the right skills to become rich!  What these two seemingly unrelated goals have in common is "delayed gratification".  What is delayed gratification?  Its the willingness to put off gratification today for the promise of a much larger prize later on. The Marshmallow Experiment The Marshmallow Experiment was an experiment in delayed gratification conducted by  Ebbesen and Mischelat at Stanford University in 1970.  The purpose of this study was to understand when the control of deferred gratification develops in kids. The experiment took place at the Bing...

The rich mindset

As I mention in the "Is Scooby Rich", its not how much you make that is important, its how much you save.  We are pressured from everywhere to spend, spend, spend.  People feel pressure to keep up with their friends, their co-workers, and families.  Success is that shiny car out in front of your house even if you cant afford the payments, right? So many people fall into what I call the lethal "Its just ..." trap.  My cellphone is "just" $50/month. My cable TV is "just" $70 per month.  My Netflix is "just" $20/mo.  My car payments are "just" $350/month.  My...
