Stretching for Idiots [UPDATED]

Stretching for Idiots [UPDATED]

We all know that the only things people do in the gym are the newest of the new, and the sexiest of the sexy. Which is why nobody ever sprints, or does pullups, or pushups, or lifts heavy weights with proper rest.

Cardboard, Beer, Dueces

I’m a big supporter of taking time once or twice a year to completely de-compress and reset your mind. This year, though, with the release of the Training Guide and other shenanigans I’ve failed at following my advice.

That’s why, starting today, I’m going on vacay from everything. No writing, no blogging, no facebook or twattering (maybe…).

WTF are Macronutrients? Pt. 1

Every meat head worth his weight in protein shakes knows the basics of macronutrients. Most normal people may know a concept or two about them.

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
