Most people don’t realize this, but diet is actually the highest leverage point when it comes to losing weight. Diet accounts for about 80% of whether you lose weight or not.

How to Burn Fat With Intermittent Fasting (16-8 Model)

Lately there’s been a lifestyle diet known as intermittent fasting sweeping the nation. Every other fitness guru claims that it helps you put on huge amounts of muscle, while also staying lean at the same time.

However, anyone who’s been lifting for long enough is always skeptical of claims like this—and rightfully so.

It’s very rarely as simple as just doing one thing to get jacked; in reality, everything has its advantages and disadvantages, but could intermittent fasting be the exception to the rule?

In my opinion, intermittent fasting is a phenomenal tool that can help you get shredded and boost productivity…but it depends on how you use it.

Top 3 Bodybuilding Multivitamins on the Market Today

It’s no secret that most of the food we eat nowadays is devoid of nutrients. With mono-cropping, GMO’s, and soil depletion at an all time high, the food that you eat has less nutrients than ever.

That’s where bodybuilding multi-vitamins come in…BUT, not all multi-vitamins are created equal. This is true ESPECIALLY when it comes to bodybuilding.

As you guys know, I worked at a supplement store for a while, so I’ve tried pretty much tried everything. I’ve tried tons and tons of multi-vitamins for different purposes, and I’ve got a list of my top 3 multi-vitamins made specifically for bodybuilding.

Usually I start my articles off by saying that you don’t need to take supplements, but multi-vitamins are an exception. You MUST take a bodybuilding multi-vitamin if you want to attain a high level of focus, energy, and health. There’s no way around it.

best pre-workout supplements

My Top 5 Pre-Workout Supplements (They’re Basically Legal Meth)

First off, I want to start this article by saying that you don’t need pre-workout supplements. Nope. You don’t need them.

You can still get good pumps without them, you can still have great workouts without them, and you can still build muscle without them.

That being said, having the right pre-workout can speed up your progress by a whole lot.

The right pre-workout will get you amped up to go to the gym. It’ll give you a huge surge of energy, and give you that mental focus that you need to aggressively attack the weights. Some pre-workouts will even help you build muscle faster.

As you guys know, I used to work at a supplement store—so I’ve tried dozens of pre-workouts (some of which have actually been banned, like Jack3d). I know what works and what doesn’t.

So, with that in mind, here’s the top 5 most effective pre-workouts on the market.

the best workout routine for men

What’s The Best Workout Routine for YOU Specifically?

“What’s the best workout routine?” A lot of guys want a very simple, black and white answer to this question. Well, sorry, but it doesn’t exist. The best workout routine for you will depend on a number of factors:

  • How long have you been working out?
  • Do you want to build strength or mass?
  • Do you want to look good, or just stay fit?
  • Do you value cardiovascular health or muscular health more?
  • Are you busy and crunched for time?
  • Are you a college student with zero time constraints whatsoever?

The fact of the matter is that deciding what the best workout routine is for you is an extremely important aspect of your lifestyle.

I’ve done routines that only require 45 minutes a month (that’s right, like 12 minutes a week) and I’ve done routines that require 3 hours 6 days a week. Every routine has its pros and cons.

I’m not going to sugar coat it for you and tell you some bullshit about how there’s this one routine that fits everyone! It’s the best workout routine out there, and you just have to pay $39.99 to access it! Fuck off. I’m here to tell you the truth based off of my experience. So here it is.

best whey protein for cutting

A Guide to Shitty vs. High Quality Whey Protein

“What’s the best whey protein?” the gym-going newbie asks.

Well, as I’ve said before, whey protein is basically the cornerstone supplement for building muscle. It’s perfect right after a workout, because it’s fast digesting—it gets your muscles the protein that they need in just 30 minutes (compared to a meal, which takes around 2 hours).

But it’s not that simple—not all whey protein is created equal. This is one of the first things that I learned from working at a supplement store in college. There’s cold processed whey, grass-fed whey, casein blends, isolate matrixes, and protein concentrate…how in the hell do you know what to choose?

Well, I’ve tried probably 50 different whey protein supplements and narrowed it down to a few of the best so that you don’t have to waste your time and money. Here’s the best whey protein supplements, in my opinion.

Gym Gear: The 4 Essentials For Breaking PR’s

I actually didn’t even use gym gear for a while. Not because I thought it was cheating or anything like that, I mean Olympic power-lifters use it all the time. I guess I just never really thought about it.

But when I recently started using the following gym gear, my max lifts literally went up overnight. My bench went up 10%, my squat went up 15%, and my deadlift went up a whopping 25%.

If you’re a guy who’s trying to get bigger in the gym, or if you’re just trying to get stronger and leaner, I highly urge you to use gym gear for the major compound lifts.
