“I Never Train Legs”

I hear the above quote a lot and it fascinates me. Men are the main culprit, who despite the fact that they want to put on some more size and have always struggled to do so, never train their legs. Helllooooo!?!?!?! 70% of your total muscle mass is below the waist. My girlfriend knows what… Read more

My Girlfriend Is Stronger Than You

This is my girlfriend Katlyn. She deadlifted 215, 230, and 250 lbs last night (the video link below shows her 250 lbs pull). All of this AFTER she performed her regular training routine.

Lets Talk Supplements

This is a mini-article that I originally wrote for The Fitcast a few months ago. I figured this would be a great place to post it since there is still an overwhelming stigma on the supplement industry in general.
