Please tell me you fired those trainers lol. I would literally have just advised you to do exactly what you’re doing with some body weight work and good old strongman training, most notably loaded caries aka farmers walks. Read more

This is even easier. You’re already succeeding. Most studies agree any physical activity, no matter what one does, will improve measurable markers of health. Cardio and strength training combined is better than one alone but one alone is way better than none at all. Add in a halfway decent diet and boom you’re already Read more

Ya this is pretty great and I agree with all of it. The fundamental issue is there is a lot of misinformation both actively spread by charlatans and idiots. Add in some tribalism and now god help us political (if you don’t think Vegan vs. Carnivore is political now I envy the bubble you live in) nutritional debate its Read more

The key is not being lean but also not being overweight. Its hard to build muscle and strength when perma-lean, but its pretty easy to do so when you’re eating at a true maintenance. Its also nice as you discover what your actual maintenance is. I cant tell you the amount of people who thought they had to eat 500 or Read more

This is why I gave up bulking and cutting. I find its so much easier to live close to maintenance perpetually. A small deficit here, a small surplus there, its a lot easier the the up down cycle. Not that I really have a choice these days, with gyms lockedown for at least six more weeks I’m stuck at my deflated, but Read more

I agree with the rest of your statement but 90 minutes of cardio isn’t exactly an elite effort. I’ll ride my bike for well beyond that, its fun.

Ya its got a name survivorship bias. You see it in other fields too. “How long did it take you to get your big break?” to an actor. You only ask that to somebody who got the big break, you never do to the 99.9% of people who never did.

Obviously efficiency matters lol. Doesn’t change the fact maintaining a baseline of NEAT activity helps a lot. I’d also say if you lost 30 kg you likely changed your diet. Read more

Sure but even when other standard variables get added in, since you asked SO nicely. Weight stayed constant during this, actually my intense cardio dropped to zero as it was during the gym lockdowns I did this so I did not have access to the ellipticals which is my favorite form of cardio. Basically the only variable Read more

I agree though its better than the 1800s ideal beauty standard of men of a big gut and mutton chops. So thats something. I’d also say its nicer that men can achieve this look with a cycle of test and clen for the most part than having to cycle Dbol, test, and tren like in the 80s lol.

Bingo! Its the genetic lottery and for woman its where you store your fat. Some hit the jackpot and store almost all their fat on their glutes and none on their abs and thighs. Most aren’t that lucky.

Bigger issue for a lot of people is hips. Some people cannot anatomically go that deep. For others ya flexibility is an issue as well.

Lazy people love to pay for a quick hack rather than accept  the truth that hard work and time is what you need to do. Influencers come in because they are more than willing to sell the lie.

Most IG models use Booty Pads or injections to get that look. There is actually no way to have a big ass and a small stomach if your body doesn’t store fat that way. Some folks are lucky but most aren’t. Sure you can build bigger glutes but fundamentally that size in the trunk will come from fat above a certain point. Read more

I got to a sub-60 bpm resting heart rate last year (around 58 to be precise) just walking. Now I walked A LOT about 30,000 to 35,000 steps a day but it wasn’t running. Walking can really help your heart out but if you want to increase the other part of your cardiovascular system namely your lungs, you need to do more Read more
