Minimum Effective Dose? You Mean Indolence?

There are days when I wonder why the hell I got into fitness in the first place; the industry as a whole is a shit show of voodoo magic and marketing hype. It seems laughable that cretins spanning the entire spectrum of stupid have managed to build a billion dollar business off of the strength of half truths and whole lies, while so […]

Stress Is Fucking Up Your Physique (And Everything Else) Bruh

Stress, though fairly mainstream an abstraction, is highly misunderstood, and despicably under appreciated by society as a whole: to prove my bold assertion, I will put my money where my mouth is and bet that a huge slice of the readership, when asked for a definition of stress, would myopically equate the state of being ‘stressed’ with the mere experience of a psycho-emotional disturbance in […]

Stress Is Fucking Up Your Physique (And Everything Else) Bruh II

Ihate self help gurus; not because I think that they’re all full of shit, but because they always manage to skip out when the time comes to address the actionable aspects of developing a ‘mindset of abundance’, or whatever the fuck else they’re trying to sell you on… ‘Let go of the baggage’ they say ‘Unleash the slumbering giant within’ […]

Stress Is Fucking Up Your Physique (And Everything Else) Bruh III

If you’re reading the third and final installment of our series on chronic stress, I am going to assume that you’ve found it both useful and thought provoking. Reversing a condition that has been slowly bleeding into your subconscious over the course of decades is no easy task: it presupposes the contradiction and rejection of many of our natural tendencies […]

Why Community Is Vital To Your (Fitness) Success

“No force, no firmness, the pale coward shows; He shifts his place: his color comes and goes: A dropping sweat creeps cold on every part; Against his bosom beats his quivering heart; “Not so the brave – still dauntless, still the same, Unchanged his color, and unmoved his frame: Composed his thought, determined his eye, […]

Hey Asshole, You Are What You Eat – Comprende?

Look, before the villagers come a knocking with their pitchforks and torches, let’s get one thing straight: cheesecakes are awesome. So are burgers, chili cheese fries and 40 oz. chocolate milkshakes. Problem is, most people exercise, quite literally, ZERO common sense when making their quotidian food choices, preferring to wing it rather than to consciously map out and adopt […]

Ya Booze, Ya Snooze, Ya Lose

Alcohol and dieting, every trainee’s favorite topic of discussion. God, even Stephen Hawking would lose his marbles trying to enumerate the times I’ve had to sit my clients down, look em’ dead in the eye, and tell them that their drinking problem habits are derailing their gains. And before you even go there, get the fuck out with the whole “drinking red wine […]

Your Calves Are Small Because You Suck

OK, So I’m fucking fed up with team #NoCalves #BadGenetics and whatever the fuck reason you claim calves don’t respond to weight training. Here is a free list for you. Because apparently, lists are almost as good as infographics for making lazy fucks read stuff in their newsfeed that is not cats, boobs or “people […]

Intermittent Fasting

In 2012 I wrote my review on the effects of intermittent fasting on animal and human health, published it on, and for a brief period of time broke the internet. I’m glad that you are here, trying to find it. I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that has been put […]

Want To Get JACKED? FUCK Cardio

The last time I went on a 10 Km was about 8 years ago. You want to know why? Because cardio fucking sucks, that’s why. Think of it this way: skipping out on a single slice of cheesecake will spare you an hour (or more) of torturous running, so If fat loss and sexitude are your PRIMARY goals, cardio […]
