“Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club My favorite author, although some of his newer works have seemed forced, is Chuck Palahniuk. He was once described like this [...]

Tonight was a frustrating, but through the frustration came a really good workout. I mentioned last week that I had an adjustment done on my lower back, and the muscles are still kinda aggravated so I didn’t squat. I was pissed off because I love squatting, and tonight was a designated heavy night… Just wasn’t [...]

Well, 505 to be exact. But the fact of the matter is, I am progressing without pain. I was seriously more nervous before this bench than any other lift I can remember in my life. I was so worried about “what if”? Then I kinda stepped back and realized I could be hurt doing anything… [...]

Hang with me for a moment as I am wound up, and ready to type. Goals. Dreams. Visions. Hopes. Whatever you want to call them, we all have them. Why is it that some people continuously reach their’s, and others seem to eek through life never accomplishing more than getting out of the bed each [...]

Really simple advice I believe in. If you want to look like a bodybuilder, eat like one. If you wanna be strong as you possibly can, train like a strongman. If you wanna be the best powerlifter you can be, do both. This is 3-5 days worth of food depending on the item. I am [...]

What’s up y’all? Been busy traveling, competing, writing… Anyway I have just returned from the Supertraining March Madness Meet, and again I have nothing but great things to say about the prefessionalism of Cara Westin, Mark Bell, Jim McDonald, and crew. They put on a great meet, do a lot of little things to make [...]
