Workout today for tomorrow you may die

A lot of us are so into lifting that we get this mindset that every workout has to be optimal or it "wastes" a workout. We would rather 'save' a workout for tomorrow if we know we do not have enough time to give it 100% effort. The notion is that you can only work out every X days so you have to make sure each workout is perfect. Although this dedication and mentality is admirable, its not always optimal for progress - two reasons. First, being forced to do a quickie workout forces you to strip away all rituals...

Cryotherapy for fat loss works!

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:  Cryotherapy for fat loss works.  I put myself into a borderline hypothermic state for about 5 hours on two consecutive days while consuming a caloric surplus of approximately 2000 calories and still lost fat.  I can also tell you that anyone who uses cryotherapy for fat loss is an idiot because the pain of the cryotherapy FAR exceeds the pain of ANY type of cardiovascular exercise, aka the old fashioned way to lose fat. Not only that, lets not forget the fact that cardiovascular exercise is critical for good health! Cold water showers, professional cryotherapy tanks are of too short a duration in...

Getting even with YouTube trolls

My video "Does Scooby Do Steroids" is an interesting one. Its one that my longtime subscribers do not care about and most of the views and comments are coming from haters who are convinced that anyone with a better physique than them OBVIOUSLY uses steroids. Anyway, it appears that another YouTube fitness trainer is sending the trolls so I decided to get even - I turned on the pre-roll ads, that means that in order to write a comment they now need to watch some lame, long ad ... for which I get ad revenue. Sure, send all the trolls you...

Eating healthy is NOT expensive!

Some people like to think that healthy food is expensive to help justify their horrible eating habits, but its simply not true.   They love to whine: "I'd love to eat healthy but its too expensive." Poppycock!  They do NOT want to eat healthy and are grasping for excuses to be lazy and eat tasty, highly processed, unhealthy fast food and junk food.  Many of the healthiest foods on the planet are also the cheapest. Take legumes which are one of the healthiest  and nutritious foods on the planet - soy beans, black beans, pinto beans, garbonzo beans are all...
