As more and more kids just spend their days with their face glued to a screen, I try to come up with fun things for my kids to do outside. Sunday’s are a “device free” day where we all unplug and enjoy each other’s company. I try to find things to do that don’t cost too much, but are also rewarding. You’d be surprised how little it takes for the kids to have a great time they’ll remember forever
ak and I have decided to do a 3 month challenge -starting May 18, 2018 and ending August 10, 2018- where we will compare the differences between doing weight training (J.Nyx) and bodyweight exercises (Jak). Each Friday we will share our results, what changes we’re going to make to our respective programs, and specific benefits/issues we come across.
We’ve all heard about tactics you can use to achieve success. DGAF, fake it til you make it, etc but I’ve noticed a mindset that many men these days have adopted due to a myriad of reasons, but the outcome is always the same. Today we’ll go over what this modern loser mindset is and how you can work toward fixing it.
I return to my favorite lifts series this week where we go over some of the lesser known accessory lifts. Today we’re reviewing the One Arm Dumbbell Upright Row and Behind The Back Barbell Shrug. Lets get to it:
I took a day off Monday to hit up an amusement park with another couple that my wife and I are friends with. They have 4 kids, we have 3 and on this day we just decided to get away from being parents for a day, or so I thought. It turned out that what seemed to be a normal, functioning couple turned out to be quite the contrary which lead to some action on my part. Today I’ll discuss our adventure and how I had to lead even when I didn’t expect it.
At WB Fitness we follow a strict workout and diet routine. It is designed to be brutal but efficient in making you lean, cut and looking good. We adhere to this regimen to achieve the results we desire, but everyone who spends time in the gym knows all about that day where you make it to the gym, but your mind isnt here. The music isnt working. You’re dreading that next lift. So what do you do? You’re already there, so dont waste the time. Today I’ll talk about a fun thing you can do to get your head right, get some reps in, and get back on track.
This isn’t my typical article, just a view on life as I go through it. I promise no protein, eggs, coffee, or tae kwan do. As I figure out this thing called life, I feel that you reflect on things as you experience them. Wisdom, to me, is truly grasping a problem or concept that you have lived through, viewing it from all possible angles. All of you seem to be on a path to bettering yourself in some way. When you better yourself, you tend to go against the grain of most people. Most people seem to follow patterns and will take the easy way out. Furthermore, I’m finding that as you lead in life, its quite lonely at the top. Today I’ll go over just how I’m dealing with this, why I think its ultimately good, and how you can deal with not only being focused on your goal, but also enjoying the process too.
I was talking with WB about days off and how it affects you. Not just physically, but mentally The joke about how the first day you pick up the iron is the day you’re forever small has some truth in it. The other side of the spectrum is that when we miss a day, its not others we let down, but ourselves. I think all of us here can agree that we fucking love this game. As tough as it is, with the pain, the time it takes, the clean eating etc, we all keep coming back for more, but why is that?
Jak, Cynic and Yours Truly wish you all a Happy Memorial Day. Hope you’re enjoying the holiday with family and friends.

In getting settled in at WB Fitness, I’m going to start of with a loose series I’ll be doing for the site. Every few posts I’ll post some lesser known lifts and workouts I’m doing, offer a video, an explanation, and why I’m using them. Today I go over two lifts to help your triceps, back, traps and shoulders.
