The Fear of…Success?

Hello men.  Got a random musing for today.  Feel free to interject your own thoughts or tell me where I’m wrong.

The Red Pill community often talks about finances and becoming entrepreneurs, but what percentage of men in this community are actually out there creating their own businesses?

How many men in our community, or in the general population for that matter, doing something great with their lives?  I would hazard a guess and say far fewer than the number simply grinding away at their 9 to 5 until retirement.  Continue reading “The Fear of…Success?”

Fritatta For Fitness Gains

Last week I was introduced to the magic of  a dish known as fritatta.  WB Fitness and La’darell Luthor both told me how great it was so I decided to give it a whirl for my meal prep this week.  I decided to add my own J. Nyx zing to this classic egg dish and it turned out so damn good I had to share the recipe and macros I’m getting with this delicious and easy to make food.

A Routine That’s Right For You

I’ve seen many, MANY of these cookie-cutter routines that people put out on their sites.  They promise super-duper productivity, enhanced mood and cognition, and easier work days.  What they fail to mention, however, is one key problem…

They’re totally unrealistic for the average Joe. 

Let me give you an example of what one of these morning routines.  This isn’t an EXACT routine, but it’s close enough that you’ll get the gist. Continue reading “A Routine That’s Right For You”

Open Thread: Sick Day

The endless winter has claimed another victim today – J.Nyx.  Apparently he’s as sick as a dog today and wasn’t able to write up an article for today, but it’s all good.

So today’s open thread will be discussing what you do when you wake up sick.  Do you have a certain routine to get over your illness or do you just ride it out and nap all day?  Continue reading “Open Thread: Sick Day”

Raising A Child With Special Needs

I have been putting off this article, quite honestly, since the creation of AKC.  This isn’t something I speak about often in regular life, much less on the internet, not because I am ashamed or embarrassed, but because I’ve struggled with what to say – with how to broach this topic and do it justice.  So, with that in mind, I’m just going to simply speak about my own personal experience and offer some advice.

My youngest daughter, born 10 minutes after her twin, was diagnosed at birth with Down Syndrome. Continue reading “Raising A Child With Special Needs”

Don’t Skip Cardio Day

Weightlifting and Bodybuilding are pushed on many sites, including this one.  Every guy should be doing some sort of physical exercise where you are moving weights.  One aspect of fitness that is often pushed to the back burner is the cardio game.   WB Fitness has us doing 60 minutes daily now, and I have gone from someone who loathed the sight of a treadmill to someone who actually looks forward to it.  Today I’ll list the benefits of doing cardio, but I’ll really focus on how I went from a guy who just lifted weights, to one who does 60+ minutes of cardio after a tough lifting session.

Your Circle of Friends

We’ve all heard the saying that you’re the average of your five closest friends, but how many have truly sat down and thought of the ramifications of such a statement?  Which of you have really taken a close look at the men you hang out with and came to some uncomfortable conclusions?  I can tell you I have and it can be tough, especially if those friends are friends you grew up with. Continue reading “Your Circle of Friends”

When The Torch Passes

Each family has one man who seems to be the center figure of the group.  Not just the father in the nuclear family, but a guy who is the figurehead of the extended family as well.  At some point you may find yourself in that role, as I believe I have.  Today I’ll explain what this role means, and how to be dependable without being taken advantage of.
