Eating For Muscle Growth And Performance

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called “Fat Loss Made Easy.”

While the majority of people need to reduce their body fat levels, there are a select few that are looking to gain weight, build muscle, and maximize performance.

Let me be clear.

If you are overweight, don’t even think about going on a mass gaining diet until your body fat levels are in check.

For men, this will be sub 12%

For women, sub 20%.

“Bulletproof” Your Immune System

G-G-G-G-G-Gesundheit!

It’s that time of year again.

I’m sick.

It appears that my goal of a cold-less 2014 is foiled.

Oh, well.

Considering I average about 1 cold per year, I really can’t complain.

The Greatest

This past weekend I watched a documentary called I Am Ali.

It was a close, in depth look at the life of Muhammad Ali, as told through his personal archive of audio journals and interviews with his inner circle of family and friends.

Many of you have heard of Muhammad Ali as the “The Greatest Boxer of All Time.”

Why Bodybuilding Workout Splits Don’t Work

“Just doing my workout – Tuesday is arms and back.”

RonBurgandy-weightlifting1
1001, 1002….

We all know the typical bodybuilding split.

Most dudes go to the gym and follow a routine similar to that of Mr. Burgundy’s:

Chest on Monday, Back on Tuesday, Legs on Wednesday, Shoulders and Traps on Thursday, and Arms on Friday.

My Top 5 Ab Exercises

Crunches and Sit-Ups.

Those are probably the first exercises that come to mind when you think of abdominal training.

They are also two exercises that I NEVER include in my training routines.

Here’s why:

Unless you have an incredibly strong “core” to begin with, the chances of you performing a sit-up or crunch correctly are pretty slim.

I see this almost on a daily basis: the pulling of the neck, the rounding of the lower back—it makes me want to cringe!

Fat Loss Made “Easy”

Fat loss is simple.

It’s simple in that once you realize that it’s hard and takes A LOT of discipline and effort, it actually becomes quite uncomplicated.

You see, most people want an “easy” way out.

Don’t Be Like Everyone Else

Mediocrity and Unhappiness.

It would seem as if the two go hand in hand.

There are too many of us out there just “getting by,” not living life up to it’s full potential.

In my opinion, the problem with most people is that they are content with just being average.

The problem with that is that they really aren’t at all that satisfied.

Deep down inside they are miserable.

You can see it on their faces and in their actions.

At some point in their lives, they settled; they gave up on themselves.

Supplements

“Mind Blowing Fat Loss!”

OK….

“Feed your muscles for up to 8 hours!” 

Huh?

“The most explosive pre-workout intensifier in supplement history!”

What does that even mean?

“No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative; It get’s the people going!”

Sprint!

Efficiency.

I like that sh*t.

If I can do something in less time and get the same (or better) results, I’m all for it; and I’m sure that most of you out there reading this feel the same way.

That’s why I’m here to tell you that if your goals are to burn fat, build muscle, and get in ridiculously good shape, you need to stop jogging— I believe it’s a soft J — and start sprinting!
