Eat To Be Strong, Eat To Be Healthy: Why Not Both?

“Strength sports aren’t about health.” I have heard this a lot, and it’s true in a certain context: EXTREME SPORT is about being competitive and pushing your body beyond certain normal ranges of activity. That will demand other extreme behaviors: prioritizing training over everything, maybe PED use, etc.  But there is some bullshit hidden within …

As Above, So Below: Training Is Everything

I’m a zealot. I’m a proselytizer of the pump. A monk for the muscle. I believe that in the modern world, there are few things as purely valuable as physical strength and skill training, because it’s a foundational discipline. It’s a practice that will consistently reflect whatever is going on with you, good or bad. …

Foundation & Vision: The Keys to Forward Progress (And some Cara Updates)

Happy June! The year has been burning away fast, but that's to be expected when you're running a business, independently producing an entire online show, and trying to have a life, which, I am. Well, at the least the first two things. Before I start doling out my innermost ramblings, a bit of business. I've …

Be Real: Energy Management

This is my first blog in about a month; in March my writing habit took a back seat to production. I broke the chain of my everyday writing that I've kept up since January 1st. I'm okay with that, and like the topic of this post (training); it was a conscious attention-shift out of necessity …

ORIGIN, PT I: The Experiment Begins (IF, Paleo, & Calisthenics)

For most of my adolescent years and early twenties, I thought people’s bodies; their shapes, leanness or fatness, muscularity or lack thereof, was mostly luck and genes. I thought their abilities - speed, strength, power, agility, and endurance were evolutionary poker and if you weren't dealt a good hand, you were fucked. I really believed …

Break Ribs, Limits, and Records: How I Tried to Set a Guinness World Record

Disclaimer, I did not break a rib, it just kind of felt like it. Through a confluence of happy factors on February 1st, 2017, almost exactly two years ago, I was given the opportunity to participate in an official Guinness World Record Breaking event. The event was hosted by Reebok to promote their new shoe, …

Contagion: Your Gym Behavior Matters

Sometimes I watch people lift, and they look they’re doing their taxes. There’s a lot of sighing, slumping down on a bench between sets, leaning on racks, head down, shoulders forward, scrutinizing their program or scrolling social media (lord knows that’s me sometimes; okay, lots of times), the minutes inching by while they plod around …

One Simple Day At A Time

You want to change your life, but can you change one habit? Lofty goals and ambitions are inspiring, but they can be confusing and even demotivating if we don't have the tools to achieve them. It's great to aim high, but if you're not investing in learning and mastering the small steps, you may find …
