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.
Starting Strength can be one of the best workout routines for beginners, so if that’s what you want, then look no further.
I know how frustrating it can be, searching around, trying to figure out where to start. There’s literally a million different “gurus” saying that you should do this, or that you should do that. It’s incredibly confusing.
I was in the same boat about a decade ago, and I wasted years following stupid workout routines that don’t work.
Most people will tell you to do a split, but in my experience most people also don’t know what they’re talking about.
In my nearly 10 years of fitness experience, the best workout routine for beginners is Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, due to its sheer simplicity, effectiveness, and time-efficiency.
Ah, the clean bulking diet… where to begin?
I remember when I first made my “poor man’s bulking diet.” I was a broke college student trying to save money. Despite my lack of income, I was determined to get big—it wasn’t a “want,” it was a “must.”
So, I decided to create the most calorie-efficient, cheapest, clean bulking diet possible—and I succeeded. On just $100 a month, I was able to successfully bulk up for the winter, putting on a solid 20 pounds of muscle. Plus, all of my lifts went up.
So, if whether you’re a broke college student, an entrepreneur trying to put all your money into a business, or just a guy who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on food, here’s the best clean bulking diet for you.
One of the most common questions that I get asked is: “How do I boost testosterone levels?”
Why do I get asked this question so much? Well, because testosterone levels are at an all time low nowadays. With artificial ingredients, GMO’S, parabens, and phyto-estrogens lowering this man-hormone, it’s no wonder that so many modern men are highly effeminate.
Testosterone is an anabolic androgenic hormone, which means it’s responsible for muscle growth, confidence, assertiveness, a sense of well-being, energy, and libido levels.
In short, the more testosterone that you have, the better your life will be. It’s no coincidence that high-achieving men also have high levels of testosterone.
Unfortunately, however, our society is littered with things that decrease testosterone levels: pthalates, soy, petro-chemicals, political correctness, a complete lack of male role models, and more. It’s almost like there’s a war against masculinity.
Fortunately, however, it’s very possible to increase your testosterone levels. In fact, using the following tips, I increased my testosterone by around 75%.
Most supplements are bullshit, especially when it comes to supplements for building muscle.
I’ve tried just about every supplement out there. From rare Chinese herbs claiming to extend your life by 40 years, to a funky mushroom that grows on the backs of caterpillars native to the Andes, I’ve spent literally thousands of dollars on supplements.
And do you know what? Most of that money was wasted on crappy supplements that don’t work. But, there are some that work—you just have to know which ones.
That’s why I’ve made this list for you. I remember when I first started getting into fitness, I was completely clueless. I got scammed on numerous occasions by GNC and other over-priced stores, and it wasn’t until 6 months later that I started to figure out which supplements were worth my time.
These 4 supplements will shoot your muscle growth through the roof.
