The One Arm Pull Up (or One Arm Chin Up) was never a goal of mine until very recently and I'd like to talk about my foray into this journey. The r/bodyweightfitness forum goes through seasons where the userbase brings up the same theme repeatedly and it has been very pulling-oriented for the past year. Last year it was all about Pavel Tsatsouline's Fighter Pullup program (detailed below) and recently there's a lot of talk about one-arm training. The userbase is collectively getting stronger and … [Read more...] about The Quest for the One Arm Pullup

Hello dear readers. This major purpose of this post it to break the writers block and paralysis that has consumed me as of late. My thoughts will be all over the place, which is good, cause variety is good. Treat this as a stream of consciousness style post, the practice of which is to help my thoughts flow, to share what is going on internally inside me and to possibly reignite the flame as a writer. The evolution of content-creation When I first started this website, I posted anything … [Read more...] about Reigniting the will to blog
So for most of 2018 I've been making YouTube videos but falling behind on making the corresponding blog posts or updating old blog posts to match the YouTube videos... and enough is enough!

About a month ago, a wonderful redditor suggested that my website needs index pages. They were so very right, and I thank them graciously from the bottom of my heart for telling me that. Sometimes the simplest things go by the wayside and we lose the forest from the trees. I guess that's what happens when you go from worrying about making content, to having too much content and not making it easy to find. Anyhoo, here's a basic index of all my blog posts related to nutrition. Basic Nutritional … [Read more...] about Nutrition Index
I'm doing this completely full time now I have decided to fully invest into my Internet presence and make this a full time job. My main passion in life is to HELP people and it's crazy to think that I am already a trainer to thousands of people, but it's the truth!

So I will be focusing on making sure my YouTube channel and website are up to date, … [Read more...] about Latest Thoughts and News for February 2018!
Hey everybody, I'm not one to brag, but when I start to feel symptoms of the cold or flu, I'm able to stop it dead in its tracks almost everytime.

Meanwhile, everyone around me this winter has been talking about how awful their flu was, lasting over a week and the pharmacies being out of antibiotics! So here are … [Read more...] about 8 Ways to Stop a Cold in the Early Stages

For the month of January, I’ve been posting a yoga video every weekday and decided to make a vlog sharing the internal issues associated with it. Turns out the REAL challenge behind a yoga challenge wasn’t the yoga itself but sticking to your commitments and just doing your best despite being your own harshest critic. Ultimately the responsibility is good as responsibility is a part of what gives your life meaning. And the creative process is an utter bitch of a process but you have to … [Read more...] about The REAL challenge behind the making of a yoga challenge
