Losing a couple of pounds can be nerve-racking. In some cases, eating right, drinking plenty of water, and working out doesn’t seem to help. There has to be something you’re doing wrong; maybe your metabolism is not in top shape, or maybe you need to change your daily meal plan. Sometimes, even the most hardworking […]
Losing weight is often possible through a healthy, balanced diet and through participating in weight loss exercises. For some, however weight loss is not as simple as it seems to be for others.
HIIT has recently become the go-to cardio exercise to lose fat quickly. However, the majority of people aren’t performing it in a way that maximizes its fat loss effects.
Intermittent Fasting Intermittent fasting has been steadily increasing in popularity for the last few years now, reaching a point where it has become somewhat synonymous with fat loss within the health and fitness industry. But despite this, intermittent fasting is still a very misunderstood (and often poorly implemented) concept. While there multiple different approaches to […]
At some point all we really need is guidance. We need mentorship, we need for someone to simply point us in the right direction, tell us where to start and then what to do next. We need clarity so we can do what we do best, work. Motivation is something that will come and go, […]
If there’s one area that I need to most work and discipline with regards to my body, it isn’t in dieting, nor training, but stretching. I’m not stretching’s biggest fan, yet I do it because it needs to be done. I understand its importance, but I need routine. I love routine. And so, not all […]
Most emotions aren’t real. Fear isn’t real, it’s merely a perception of a situation. Sometimes fear can be a good thing, like when it gives us more energy and a heightened awareness so we’re able to better defend ourselves. Other times fear can be crippling, paralyzing any chance we have of living a successful and […]
To diet while traveling is a slap in the face of the experience, or what the experience should be. Part of enjoying a new culture and way of life is enjoying the cuisine. But how does a guy enjoy the pastas and pastries of Italy, for example, without also adding a dozen extra pounds of fat in the […]
One of the tricks with getting a six pack, and forging those defined abs, is keeping muscle loss at bay. As such, getting ripped abs isn’t simply a matter of reducing calories, it’s a little more complicated than that. Fortunately a good buddy of mine, Alain Gonzalez, has been kind enough to write an article […]
I grew up watching Westerns and Action films. It was Arny’s heyday, Stallone was on top of his game, and movies like Tombstone brought the wild west to my living room. As far as the cinema was concerned, there isn’t a better time to have grown up, and to say that these movies didn’t influence how […]
A few years ago something clicked in my often stubborn mind that led me down a journey to find the “secret” to a strong, powerful, alpha-esque body. A secret that I eventually found in the powerful, often vilified hormone, Testosterone. Alas, there I stood, weights in hand, sweat pouring from my brow as I lifted the […]
On this site we’re re-defining the traditional “social alpha“. A true alpha is a master of his own domain (cue blatant Seinfeld reference). He’s his own ideal. He’s maximized both his potential and his ambition. He isn’t living in fear, he’s leading with courage. He isn’t the meathead Neanderthal; rather, he’s mastered his mind, his […]
The first time I stepped into a boxing ring, I fell in love with the sport. The training, the battle in the ring physically, and in your soul when you’re in the ring, makes any combat sport the purest form of competition there is. The world’s best conditioned athletes are fighters. The following is a guest […]
When we’re walking a journey alone, when we’re our only form of supervision, the man in the mirror, the only one we’re accountable to, we don’t always do the work, or do what’s necessary. That’s what makes the entrepreneur, the writer, or the artist so powerful – they do the work even when no one […]
