Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records. -William Arthur Ward A question during a recent podcast interview (I’ll post the link when it’s up and running) prompted me to consider how my training has changed over the years. Not just the nuts-and-bolts specifics of that training, but the deeper, underlying, philosophical aspects. [...]

“To know oneself, one should assert oneself.” – Albert Camus I’ve written in a prior post my thoughts on where supplementation fits in to my “3 pillars” approach to health, fitness and wellbeing.

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein A few weeks ago (as documented in this post) I pricked a finger, dabbed some blood on a blotter card and, feeling rather smug that I’d “upper percentile” the hell out of the results, sent the sample off to [...]

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” – Oscar Wilde So I’ve been super busy over the last couple of weeks; barely able to sneak in a few workouts here and there. Now I hate to beat a dead horse, but here, again, is another reason/example for the “common guy” to leave the [...]

And let me begin by saying that this is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise, but rather a 30,000 ft overview of how I approach the question of diet, nutrition and supplementation. And what is my approach, in a nutshell? [...]

“People who lean on logic and philosophy and rational exposition end by starving the best part of the mind.” – William Butler Yeats Is this “Paleo”? Is that “Paleo”? You for sure ain’t Paleo (not with choices like that). Neanderthals weren’t even Paleo, brah, so how can you, Mr 70+ hour/week, live-in-a-city lawyer-dude, even think [...]

“I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” – Ralph Nader By now I’m quite sure you’ve run across, in some form or fashion, Marlene Zuk’s work, Paleofantasy. Now, I can’t claim to have actually read the book, but I have read a few interviews [...]

“Obey the principles without being bound by them.” ~ Bruce Lee Michelle and I are currently shepparding a gentleman through the Physical Culture Immersion Experience; a gentleman who, over the past week, has experienced some of the most severe sugar withdrawals that I have ever witnessed. Utterly brutal. Insomnia, racing heart, the sweats, the non-stop cravings. And, of course, the [...]

“Whoever is out of patience is out of possession of his soul.” – Francis Bacon I so wish I could remember the above quote when I come across mainstream dietary advice like this. But alas… BTW, the entire series, of which the above linked article is but one part, is a pretty good mainstream take [...]

“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” – George S. Patton Michelle and I recently had a rather lengthy Skype conversation with Dallas Hartwig (he, together with wife Melissa, of Whole9 fame) related to the inter-workings of PFX13. I consider it one [...]
