You Got That Body By Gear

You Got That Body By Gear
I recently saw a post on Face Book depicting a video of some very hard working muscular women. A particular comment caught my eye. The poster simply posted the word “gear”. This post angered me. I have to go back to 2008 in order to understand why. Back during the Anabolic Steroid Control Act hearings in front of congress, then Senator Joe Biden complained that he wanted to become a pro baseball player but was convinced that every athlete that outperformed him was using performance enhancing drugs. Even though he had no proof of this. He told congress that his inability to make it pro was directly tied to his unwillingness to use drugs. This assumption by then Senator Biden is a slap in the face to every hard working athlete in the world. To simply reduce his or her ability to make it pro to drug use and having nothing...

The Plan

The Plan
So here’s the plan. Train early and train fasted. Then have 75% to 80% of my food intake after my training over the course of a few hours. Taper intake into the evening focusing on getting the majority of my fat and some protein. Here’s my thinking. In the book Dove’s Diplomats and Diabetes - A Darwinian Interpretation of Type 2 Diabetes and Related Disorders by Dr. Milind Watve (book here – SHR interview here), the good doctor explains what can be the only evolutionary scientific mechanism that influences nutrient timing and the ensuing partitioning to fat or muscle. He illustrates that as hunter gathers our brains were influenced by the tasks of getting food in the first place. That influence programmed the body as to what it would use that nutrition for – creating fat or muscle mass. The act of going out into the dangerous unknown was possible because...

The Ultimate Food Prep Tool You’re Not Already Using

The Ultimate Food Prep Tool You’re Not Already Using
Regardless of your goals – weight loss, improved health, disease management, performance enhancement, and gaining muscle mass – nutrition is the cornerstone and quite possibly the most important factor. It’s for this reason that most who are serious about their goals make food preparation a priority. And those who fail to make food preparation a priority quite often never reach their intended goals. For most, food preparation is something we do several times a week. It can include cooking of your chosen foods, portioning, packaging and making these finished meals portable. Entire blocks of time are set aside to perform these tasks. I stumbled upon something recently that a friend of mine, Ravi Reddy, showed me that he does for his food prep. It’s actually elegantly simple. Ravi prepares all of his meals in one crockpot the night before and then brings this with him to work then next day. I’ve...

Neglected no longer

B2ap3 Thumbnail IMG 4957 EJanuary 4, 2017 Shoulders I never trained shoulders exclusively since I’ve always believed that they got hit pretty well on back and chest training movements but have since rethought this. So now I have dedicated a specific training session to shoulders each week. I make it the end of my training week since it’s a fairly small muscle group and I’m already pretty spent by the end of the week. Giant sets for shoulders look like this… Seated shoulder press machine + upright dumbbell rows + front raise using 35 lb. plate + reverse pec deck. Yes you counted right. This Giant Set is comprised of 4 movement instead 3. What do you call a 4 movement Giant Set? Hhmmm.. Maybe a Super Giant Set? NOTES: The shoulder press machine I use places the weight “per hand” so the weight stack is per hand not spread across both hands. When doing upright...

All movements were done with no rest but some amount of rest in between each giant set. T-Bar Rows: 1 plate x 25 reps; Rear Delt Dumbbell Raise: 45 lbs. x 15 reps; Pulley Hammer Curls: 50 lbs. x 25 reps 2min T-Bar Rows: 2 plates x 20 reps; Rear Delt Dumbbell Raise: 45 lbs. x 15 reps; Pulley Hammer Curls: 60 lbs. x 20 reps 2min T-Bar Rows: 3 plates x 15 reps; Rear Delt Dumbbell Raise: 45 lbs. x 16 reps; Pulley Hammer Curls: 70 lbs. x 12 reps 3min T-Bar Rows: 4 plates x 12 reps; Rear Delt Dumbbell Raise: 45 lbs....
