If you guys are following a lifting program and trying to pack on muscle, you gotta eat.  I foolishly had to learn this the hard way and wasted two years lifting while not eating enough for muscle growth.  To put on muscle, you need to eat, and you need to eat a lot of wholesome, clean foods,but things like family, work, and other time constraints can get in the way of the nutrition you need.  Today, I’ll go over what meal prep is, how I prepare all my food for the week, and how even non-lifters can benefit from cooking all their food at once.

He Who Rules the Checkbook

Knowing When To Keep Going

These days it seems that the second someone is pushed out of their comfort bubble, they lash out and begin to lose control.  I’ve been practicing a method on keeping myself focused on the goal when things in my life become hectic.  There is a point where you have to decide that you’re in it for the long haul and that despite how crazy the situation, you’re going to kick ass and take names
