Warrior Attitude to Training and Nutrition

Warrior Attitude to Training and NutritionI’m sick and tired of what I see. Take a look around. I don’t know what situation is in your country/city, but chances are that you see the same picture. I’ll tell you what I see here in Ukraine. Almost everyone drinks alcohol in excessive amounts and daily. I won’t be far from truth if I say that every 2 out of 3 people here are alcoholics. I have nothing against drinking in moderation, but when people crap in their pants because they are so drunk, it is not right. Almost everyone smokes cigarettes daily. Almost everyone smokes weed. Almost everyone drinks energy-drinks daily. And it’s considered normal here. I see weak fat people everywhere. Everyone who tells you otherwise about this country is fucking hypocrite.

However, I used word ‘almost’ with purpose. When people get reality check and realize that they are weak fat maggots, they decide to start ‘healthy’ eating. Continue reading

Why People Fail to Get Results

Arnold Is Disappointed with Your ResultsWhy people fail to get results? Well, there could be several reasons for that. The most common are lack of plan and lack of discipline. I see this all the time and it’s really frustrating. My intention here is to help you not to make those mistakes.

Lack of Plan

Ask any serious entrepreneur to help you start a new business. He’ll most likely ask you for a business-plan. Why? If you have no plan, then you have no predictable results. The same goes for training and nutrition. Continue reading

7 Reasons Why You Don’t Look Jacked

Why You Don't Look Jacked, Man?How often does this story happen? You decide to go to the gym (or “fitness club”, if you prefer to say such a gay name for the gym). You start going there for the sake of just doing something (or, if you’re lucky, because there are lots of sexy chicks). You lift weights and work with machines. You workout for 2 hours 5 days a week. You do bench, incline, decline, dumbbell flies, dips. Then barbell curls, dumbbell curls, hammers, preacher curls. Then you work your lower abs, upper abs, obliques, sit-ups, crunches, leg raises. Then one day you take a picture of yourself and get a reality check: you’re not ripped and muscular. You’re not jacked. You’re a skinny-fat dude and nobody can say that you lift weights. How did this happen? Because you’re doing  it all wrong. Continue reading

Random Thoughts on Rough Strength Training

Bill Pearl PosingToday I’d like to post some things that I came across in my mind. Nothing fancy. Just thoughts on training-nutrition-restoration mix. So…

Drink a lot of water.

I know, it was stated millions of times. But anyway. Drink a lot of water. And I mean A LOT. It’s the best thing you can do to boost your fat loss and productivity. Water gives you energy. But how? Water has zero calories. Remember that human consists of water to 70-80%? That’s how. When I keep myself hydrated I always feel and uplift in energy levels. Even more. When I’m hungry but can’t eat for some reasons that don’t depend on me I drink water and hunger goes away. It’s very important. Secondly, when you don’t drink enough water your body engages survival mode and begins to store liquid. It’s negative phenomenon for your appearance goals because you will actually look fatter while you actually won’t be. So by drinking enough water you will improve your look through decrease in water retention. How much to drink? Read on. Continue reading
