5 day split – I was wrong

Scooby-was-wrong-5-day-split

I admit it when I am wrong and in recommending the 5-day split as optimal for muscle gain in advanced lifters I was wrong. Am I sorry, no. I do the best I can and that is all I can do. I read all I can, I try lots of different things myself, I talk to lots of other people, and then I mentally compile all the conflicting information to decide what is most likely true. If I make mistakes in my recommendations they are always honest mistakes and not intentional deception for commercial gain. As much as people like...

egg whites in a carton

cartonized-egg-whites

For years I have used egg whites as a protein source. I have used whole eggs and thrown out the yolks because I found that egg whites in a carton would always give me severe gastrointestinal distress requiring that I stay in close proximity to a bathroom for several hours. Today I am trying an experiment. The hypothesis I am testing today is that it is the manufacturing process used in cheap mass produced cartonized egg whites that is the problem. I am testing this by using organic egg whites in a carton. Here is a photo of my cauliflower...

Compression pants (tights) and knee pain

compression-tights-and-knee-pain

TLDR: Compression tights may cause excruciating knee pain. First of all this is NOT scientific, its an anecdote with a sample size of one but as I think you will see, its worth being suspicious. After biking 100km from Melbourne to Sydney in March, then coming home and hitting the hexbar squats really heavy back in April I had some really terrible knee pain that kept me from being able to even walk. After the weight lifting was removed, I found that I could bike and run pain free and I have been doing that regularly since then. I have...

GrandpaBod

grandpa-bod

"Dad Bod" has come to be a badge of honor to allow men to ignore health and fitness. Ultra-quick home workouts eliminate "Dad Bod" to make #GrandpaBod! Yes, parents do not have a lot of time between work and taking care of kids but this is no excuse for letting your health and fitness slip away.  People have this weird idea that working out requires a 20 minute commute to the gym, a 60 minute workout, and a 20 minute drive back home - no, it does not!!  Parents rarely have this kind of time available.  With home workouts you...

What is a good snack for a bodybuilder?

good bodybuilding snacks

This is a question I see all too often.  People live in this weird old school world where they can only eat three square meals a day, and then they snack between meals to keep them from getting hungry.  If you ask them how many meals they are eating, they will say "three" which is incorrect because snacks count as meals.  People also have this weird idea that only the three square meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) count so only these meals need to be healthy.  Because snacks "don't count", many people don't think they have to be healthy or nutritious....
