Recently, Force Factor contacted me as they wanted me to review the product, Force Factor Nitric Oxide Booster. It’s taken as pre-workout supplement to give yourself a “boost” during your workouts. Why review a product like this? Because often I have people ask me what my opinion is of supplementing with Nitric Oxide; whether it […]

“Knowledge without mileage equals bullshit.” — Henry Rollins   The past week has provided for an interesting convergence of physical culture themes, punctuated by the resurgence of a few instances of the age-old “HIT vs old-school bodybuilding” debate.  Actually, the debate has now mushroomed so as to include many other methodologies (CrossFit, Oly lifting, power […]
