The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.” – Marcus Aurelius Proven methods and practicalities of body recomposition can be utterly bewildering for those outside of the fitness realm. Hell, they can even be tripwires for some *inside* that… [More…]
“The fierce urgency of now.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. I truly enjoy the long-form podcast medium; especially it’s contrast with that of blogging. Chalk me up as a member of the Joe Rogan Experience fan-boy club. The rambling & nuance vs the pin-pointed. Well, ramble (and hopefully, nuance a bit) I do in this… [More…]

That picture above is of the old school, plate-loaded, Nautilus pullover. “Best of class” when it comes to the old school machines.

“Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.” – Teddy Roosevelt The Paleo lifestyle. Efficient and effective strength and conditioning. Pinpointed micro-nutrition and supplementation. When everything is boiled down to the essential rue, that “rue” is simply this: optimization of the human animal within the environment it finds itself. And the most… [More…]
