Achieve your fitness resolution goals in 2016!

So, its new years resolution time and I want to give you some down to earth, easy to follow advice when it comes to fitness resolutions. 3 simple things.

before/after physique transformations – believable and unbelievable

I need your help!  I am going a full series of New Years Fitness Resolution videos and one I am doing is on expectations and what is reasonable.  The reason this is so important is that most people fail to achieve their fitness resolutions because they have completely unreasonable expectations of what they can achieve and when it rapidly becomes apparent that they are not going to look like Arnold after 6 months, they give up. Please, post here pictures of before/after transformations - either believable or clearly bogus liars.  In the video I want to give people a sense...

Marijuana (pot) and bodybuilding

Brutally honest discussion of marijuana and bodybuilding.  I don't care if Arnold Schwarzenegger smoked marijuana, pot and bodybuilding don't mix so stop looking for excuses to justify your habit.  I don't care if you smoke pot as long as you realize its a vice just as smoking cigarettes, eating candy bars, or drinking alcohol is a vice.  I do realize that each of these products DO have some medical uses BUT they are NEVER beneficial to bodybuilding. Please,  stop deceiving yourself and just fess up to the fact that you LIKE using marijuana and that its enjoyment is more important than...
