Old School VS. New School

Trends, no matter how old or young you are you end up succumbing to them. Sometimes, you succumb against your will and other times you do it gladly.

Are You All About That Bass?

Are You All About That Bass?

There is without a single doubt that booty is IN. In 2014, music artists highlighted it and had their specific music singles reach the top of the charts, worldwide. So, is this a new “trend”? I mean, in the past it was all about a woman’s chest. Now, it’s “all about that bass”. As I [...]

Swole Mate | Is She The One?

Swole Mate | Is She The One?

I met a girl. She didn’t really go to the gym, but she “worked out”. When we met I was already a Pro bodybuilder. She had no idea what that meant exactly. She loved my smile, or so she says, but honestly I think the muscles got her. I introduced her to “the life” though, [...]

5 Moves For Bigger Legs

5 Moves For Bigger Legs

A friend once said to me, “It wasn’t until I started to do squats that I began to really grow…” There’s not much that can really discredit that statement, and I completely agree with it. Legs are either the topic of jokes or the subject of praise. Hundreds of memes have surfaced joking about, if [...]

Rest Days Are The Best Days

Rest Days Are The Best Days

I have a confession to make, I didn’t train yesterday. I didn’t train the day before yesterday or the day before that. Truth be told, I didn’t train at all last week. You read it right. I didn’t lift a single dumbbell, barbell, or weight plate. I did not even do so much as a [...]

The wonderful world of natural bodybuilding. Let me start by saying that this piece will be full of my opinion, and those who do not agree with my views here, are completely entitled to their opposing opinion, respectfully.

13 Moves For Muscle Growth

13 Moves For Muscle Growth

I’ll assume that we all know that free weights (i.e., dumbbells, barbells, weight plates) are the kings of the gym and the most necessary of all strength training. Some will say that the exercise machines are “bad for you”, while some will say that cable exercises are useless. It seems more and more that people [...]
