Change-up Time

Ok, so although I’m loving the HP Mass program, I’m hating it at the same time. I love it because the progress is constant. I hate it because it’s sucking up so much of my time in the gym (2 hours plus 30 minutes of sled work five times per week), and again this week,…

Book Round Up

A round-up of the last five books I’ve read. “The Worst Hard Time“- Timothy Egan – An AMAZING book vividly describe the perfect storm of human fuckups that led to unimaginable hardship for people that lived in the¬†Texas/Oklahoma pan-handle during the 1930s. Years of drought, the Great Depression, plagues of locusts and some of the…

Insult to Injury

As if the pec injury wasn’t enough, this recent blow to my training came in the form of the worst gastro I’ve had in years. I’ll spare you the full gory details, but it has been full on enough to derail my eating and training for a full week leaving me feeling very weak and…

Acupuncture

So it’s been just over three weeks since I’ve been able to train chest/shoulders properly due to a sprain in that region. I’ve been icing and heating it, resting it and taking a supplement called curcumin from Biotest. All these things have been helping reduce the pain and give me back some mobility. Some people…

Raw Milk Trial

Recently, I have been reading about the benefits of drinking raw milk. Drinking milk has always been a controversial issue in bodybuilding circles. To many people, it bloats them, makes them fat, gives them allergies etc. It seems that many of the negative symptoms associated with drinking milk can be attributed to the way it…

Jack3d

When it comes to supplements, my favourites have always been the energy/mind boosting ones. This relates to my job as a teacher, where mentally, I need to be firing on all cylinders every minute of the day. I’ve tried energy drinks such as Red Bull etc, but they seem to send my paranoid and border…

Supplement Stack

Supplements are an undeniably expensive part of the bodybuilding/health lifestyle. Some people may ask, why bother spending so much for expensive urine? The mad scientist in me loves to experiment with different compounds because my sensitive body chemistry sends me clear feedback if a supplement is “working”” or not. That being said, I have greatly…

Long Time

A verrry long time between posts. Keeping up with life and its craziness does that sometimes. An update on things. Still sticking with the Intermittent Fasting as I feel that it works well for me, and I can fit my life in around my bodybuilding instead of vice versa. The HP Mass program has been…

Pulse Feast Experiment Day 1

I’ve been training using Christian Thibaudeau’s HP Mass Program for 6 weeks now and have been loving the results so far. I want to integrate the eating plan that Christian has suggested using which involves intermittent fasting during the day using pulses of protein, and feasting at night. The details of this eating plan are…

PeptoPro

Arnold S was once famously quoted as saying that he would eat a kilogram of shit if it resulted in him gaining a pound of muscle. Well drinking PeptoPro comes pretty close to that experience. PeptoPro is a hydrolysed casein product from the Netherlands which is reputed to be the fastest digesting of all proteins.…
