My Bloodwork Results & Hormone Optimization Strategies

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.

Question: Are there any natural testosterone boosters that could raise my levels without having to resort to drugs? What about lifestyle choices? Answer: Low testosterone is no fun.

What’s In The Perfect Pre-Workout Meal?

There are 5 components of a great pre-workout meal: 1. Protein You want just enough protein to get some amino acids in your system. That’s about 30 grams.

But that is the worst message in the world to be promoting. I hate it more than people texting at the dinner table. I loathe it. It’s that oafish, unathletic, unfit 80’s bodybuilder type of mindset.
