Prior to writing this article I spent a couple of wonderful days visiting family in the north of Italy near a town called Udine. As Italian families do, I was spoiled with some of the most delicious food my tastebuds have ever had to pleasure of coming in contact with and in amounts that sent […]
I’m a big fan of Bruce Springsteen’s music. He continually comes out with classic songs that will definitely stand the tests of time. His song “Tougher Than The Rest” helped me come up with this blog post… Toughness is mental. It isn’t physical. Even if it is physical toughness, it has more to do with […]
I grew up watching Naim Süleymanoğlu or “the Pocket Hercules“. What is Athletic Power? Power is speed x weight. Or speed x force. The faster you can push a heavy weight, the more powerful you are.

I tried a bit of a different workout today. Instead of doing giant sets like I normally do, I just did supersets, followed by a giant + drop set.
What a trip! I shot this video while down in Las Vegas for a few days with some friends. It was an awesome trip. I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Vegas but it’s a tough place to get a workout in!
