“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 […]

“To know oneself, one should assert oneself.” – Albert Camus I’ve written in a prior post my thoughts on where supplementation fits in to my “3 pillars” approach to health, fitness and wellbeing.  I’ve also discussed the pros, cons and limitations of both properly designed assessments and blood panels and, citing my own Omega-3 level […]

“A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.” – Confucius   I’ve had some discussions lately about periodization models, and about what models I think are most effective and, more to the point, why (seemingly, at least) I don’t follow any periodization model at all in my own workouts.  Even […]

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein A few weeks ago (as documented in this post) I pricked a finger, dabbed some blood on a blotter card and, feeling rather smug that I’d “upper percentile” the hell out of the results, sent the sample off to […]

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” – Oscar Wilde  So I’ve been super busy over the last couple of weeks; barely able to sneak in a few workouts here and there.  Now I hate to beat a dead horse, but here, again, is another reason/example for the “common guy” to leave the […]

“Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen,  few in pursuit of the goal.” –  Nietzsche    Mark Rippetoe recently posted a fantastic “Crossfit analysis” article over T-Nation.  This is a very honest, non-sensationalized critique of the behemoth that is Crossfit.  It’s an excellent read, and I highly recommend that you check […]

“The new source of power is not money in the hands of a few, but information in the hands of many.” – John Naisbitt So I turned 49 this weekend.  Which, if my math is correct, marks my 38th year of actively pursuing strength and conditioning as way to better myself.  And even before my […]

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt  I’ve fielded some very good questions about the concepts of “Autoregulation” and “drop-off” lately, so I think I’ll dive into a little deeper explanation and elaborate on these ideas using a couple of actual workouts.  I’ll also toss a couple of new […]

“Several excuses are always less convincing than one.” – Aldous Huxley Let’s Talk Nutrition! And let me begin by saying that this is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise, but rather a 30,000 ft overview of how I approach the question of diet, nutrition and supplementation.  And what is my approach, in a nutshell?
