3 Things You'll Find in My Mental Health Toolbox But just like strength training, we all have slightly different philosophies. I personally can't sit for five minutes and be still and silent.

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019 Hopefully, my year in review will help you see that life is good and that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, but sometimes it is, so watch your lawn and don't forget that some grass is better than yours. Nothing lasts forever. In the past, I wrote a lot about being prepared for the future.

My Top 5 Takeaways from Titan by Ron Chernow Let's get to this week's book: Titan by Ron Chernow. If you like biographies and outstanding research and writing, and if you want to read one of the greatest rags-to-riches stories of all time, then you want to read this book. It is, hands down, one of the best biographies I've ever read.
New K-Cup with KSM66 is Changing the Coffee Game Obviously, the statements above have not been evaluated by the FDA. However, the research is extremely promising and for that reason, the inclusion of KSM66 in a coffee heightened my interest.
Mainstream Media Learns A New Word Bigorexia, or muscle dysmorphia, is quickly becoming a favored term of the mainstream media.

Religious right gangs up on Scooby The religious right tried to shut my video down for daring to suggest that couples might want to think thru the financial implications of children.

A Thank You to My Valentine This is my attempt to do something special for my wife. I'm going to let you know right now this has absolutely nothing to do with reps, sets, or percentages, so I may lose some of you who are just looking to build a bigger bench press through elitefts.
The Military Diet: What 25 Studies Say About Losing 10 Pounds in 7 Days The military diet can't be traced back to any other military in the world, either. It's also more or less impossible to follow this diet if you're in the military, since most of the foods aren't going to be on the same menu at the same time.
Don't Let Back Pain Hold You "Back" Your back is the foundation for any activity you do. Like the foundation of a house, it can be forgotten about until a crack forms. Once that happens, everything the foundation supports becomes vulnerable. When you hurt your back, you realize that it is involved in virtually all your movements.
How to Get In and Stay In Let's face it, in the eyes of almost everybody, strength coaches are a dime a dozen. Any person who has watched a video of someone lifting on their phone thinks that they can do it. You think I am making this up? How many people do you know who hate their job say, "Screw, this I'm going to be an accountant"?
Macronutrient Tracking for Fat Loss Let's start with protein. For fat loss clients, I like to have them at 0.8 to 1.0 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day. For this particular client, I would suggest starting her protein intake at around 120 to 150 grams per day.
Still Never Gymless It's hard to believe that almost fifteen years have passed since I began writing the original Never Gymless book. The years really do fly by. I still remember thinking of the title after finishing a series of hill sprints back in 2005. Plenty has changed since that time, but one thing that hasn't is the premise of the book.

In Filth It Will Be Found But those that will not break it kills. Easy. Fast. Free. Three of the most powerful words in the English language. Whether you want to win someone's money, muscle, or mind, just one of these words is often all it takes. That's why they're also dangerous,.
Vegan Gains - Terminated from YouTube? Today's article is about Vegan Gain, perhaps one of the most talked about - for better or worse - youtubers in the game.

Straight talk about being gay This is not as harsh as it sounds. Gay people are neither better nor worse than straight people, just different. Because the "children route" is a lot more difficult for us, we do not do it by default without thinking about it. Kids are not expected of gay couples like it is of straight couples.
The Strongest Gym Franchises in America At first, I thought that I could start up my own private gym, then later considered opening one of the many gym franchises out there today. Well, neither of those came to fruition. And while I'm ok with that, it never stopped my curiosity of what it takes to open and operate a successful gym these days.
Peaking for Sport If speed is what we're going after, then why do the weights on both our heavy and light days continue to climb, and bar speed continues to fall? This is the complete opposite of training from GPP to SPP, especially if you are involved in a speed-dominant sport.
Obesity is a worldwide epidemic I am sad to report that obesity is not just limited to America, its a serious issue in Europe as well. This trip has help me shed a tiny bit of light on the issue though. In Marseille France at our hotel buffet we were the only ones under 20% bodyfat.
