Favorite Lifts: Cross Face Lying Tricep Extension & Cable Face Pulls

Another Morning Boost To Your Coffee

Today I’m going to follow up J.Nyx’s post from yesterday with a little trick that I learned from Mark’s Daily Apple for adding some powerful nutrition to your coffee without altering the flavor much.

This trick is to simply add an egg to your coffee.

Now I know what you’re thinking because I had the exact same thought when I first read it.  “Add an egg to my coffee?  Nasty!”

The truth of the matter, however, is that adding egg to your coffee has a similar effect that adding creamer would.  Continue reading “Another Morning Boost To Your Coffee”

Protein Pick Me Up

As all of you know, I get up at the ass-crack of dawn to go to the gym.  In fact, before the sun is up I’m on my way there. An important part of bodybuilding is getting your macros, especially protein.  Also, it being the early morning, I like to have some coffee prior to starting my day.  My stomach would feel all bloated and full if I had a protein shake, then a few cups of coffee.  Then it hit me, to combine the two.  Today I’ll share my caffeine infused protein shake, and how to tailor it to your personal fitness needs.

How To Improve Your Sparring

It’s been a while since I’ve written a martial arts post and think it’s about time to cover some more important concepts.  In this article, we’re going to cover three concepts that tie together to improve your overall skill.  These are useful in sparring, but are also principles that equally applicable for self-defense.

This concept is based on a pyramid where you must gain a solid foundation on the existing level before progressing to the next level.  Those three levels, in order, are Coordination, Application, and Flow.   Continue reading “How To Improve Your Sparring”

The Easyway to Quit Drinking

As some of you know, I did a post not too long ago about how I quit smoking.  2018  seems to be a year of change for me as I have put another habit I had wanted to quit to rest; alcohol.  I’ve found that despite the title of this post, that I had a harder time kicking booze than cigs.  Today I’ll give you guys a recap on why I decided to give up the sauce and how I decided to make it final.

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.

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.
