Nutrition Strategies for Optimal Health With Yuri Elkaim

Simplicity is the foundation of the Renegade Principles on training, nutrition, and life. We can all resonate with the clarity and relief that comes when you peel away the inessential to expose simplicity. Yet, we still gravitate towards complexity because of the false sense of satisfaction it provides. You feel like you’re doing something because you’re thinking so much. “If I can just figure out the best way to get shredded as fast as possible, then I can start taking action.” Your mental effort makes you feel like you’re making progress when, in reality, you’re paralyzed. continue reading.

Badass or Fatass?

I was watching some UFC stuff last night and saw quite a few dudes with badass physiques. Pretty much the exact build that the majority of guys would wanna have. Jacked, ripped and athletic. Most of them weigh around 160-180 pounds. Let that sink in for a second and then forget about the obsession with gaining weight. Your first priority should be getting lean. I’ve never seen a fat superhero or action star. If you weigh 190 right now I guarantee you that you’d look a thousand… continue reading.

Intermittent Fasting Issues, Optimizing Your Nutrition & Losing Belly Fat

To optimize your performance, you gotta be willing to do whatever it takes. If there’s any question about whether or not something is going to hold you back, cut it out. This especially applies to your nutrition. I don’t care what any study says about food quality or the fact that a calorie is a calorie. Mentally masturbating over that stuff does nothing but keep you from accepting the fact that taking your health and performance to the next level requires real work, real sacrifice, and real discipline. Think about the lack of control you… continue reading.

My Bloodwork Results & Hormone Optimization Strategies

As you age, some of the most important factors in long term health are hormone optimization and regular blood work. While I always encourage my clients to rely on how they look, feel, and perform, at some point those signals can only tell you so much. You may feel great while some underlying health issue smolders under the surface. One day, you find out you have a chronic health issue because you didn’t know enough to take action early on. It doesn’t matter if it’s life threatening or just a burden to your quality of life. You gotta give yourself the opportunity to… continue reading.

Optimizing Your Carb Intake

Carbohydrates are the double edged sword of performance nutrition. On the one hand, they give you great workouts and make any muscle building diet more effective.  On the other hand, too much of them will slap saggy belly fat on you. Especially if you haven’t gotten lean enough to handle a higher carb diet. Now, throughout my years of obsessing over how to gain muscle as fast as humanly possible, I’ve tried every diet under the sun. Ketogenic diets, cyclic ketogenic diets, vegetarian, paleo, and high protein diets. And to this day, I’m always tweaking things to get better performance, more muscle, and fast… continue reading.
