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.

The Art of Hosting Events

For better or worse, my home seems to be where people tend to converge.  Whether it’s a holiday, a sports event, or even just a random Friday night, people gather at my home.  I like to think that my wife and I are good hosts seeing the turnout we get at our events, but I began to think deeper on the subject.  There are pros and cons to hosting things at your house for each member of your family.  Today I’ll discuss some of my favorite, and least favorite parts, as well as some things you can try if you’ve never hosted.
