Bigger Stronger Faster

December 31st, 2008

You need to see this documentary. I recently jumped on the Netflix wagon. This has resulted in a new found love for well done documentaries. My wife and I recently saw this one. It is by Christopher Bell, a fat kid who grew up to be a gym rat. He has always been against steroids but [...]

How important is your health?

December 30th, 2008

  Yesterday, I received a very real reminder of why my health is important to me. This came in the form of a trip to the ER with my father-in-law. At the ripe young age of 59, he experienced a heart attack. I rushed to the hospital to meet up with my wife and in-laws at the ER. [...]

Listen to Your Body

December 29th, 2008

I generally do an intense strength workout every other day. I will do like a 1 hr walk or something similar almost everyday but when it comes to weights and circuits, I usually alternate days. For example day 1: workout, day 2: rest, day 3: workout, day 4: rest. Every now and then, I will [...]

Weekly Summary: Apology

December 29th, 2008

Bad news from this weekend: I did not post any new content. Sorry. Good news from this weekend: The SoG got a new upright freezer to store his 1/4 of a grass fed cow in and a new hot tub to assist with relaxation and recovery! I hope everyone enjoyed the posts that did get [...]

Change of plans today, the Larabar can wait an extra day. I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about this past holiday. It truly turned out great. As I mentioned briefly before, I was hosting my family of grain and sugar lovers. Everyone got along, everyone enjoyed the food and everyone had a good [...]

Happy Holidays from the SoG

December 24th, 2008

 Happy Holidays from me and my family to you and yours! There will not be any posts today and tomorrow. I am hosting my family (grain and sugar lovers) and I have my hands full cooking up a primal storm that will satiate their palate. Take this opportunity to spend your time where it really matters [...]

Some of you may remember that I  have been trying Mark Sisson’s Damage Control Master Formula. It has been a little over a month now and I can tell you… this is some potent stuff. The first week or so I took it, I would actually feel a little jittery or almost “strange” after I took it. [...]

Past: The last week It was a slow week for content. I had a final exam and a lot of work to do so I apologize. I still had the chance to show everyone my home gym, rant about pizza eaters and their hoarding of slices, make some guacamole and do a spartan test. Present: [...]

I added a blanket cape (way too thick)… and changed the broom to a spear this time (with a little paint help)! I tried the workout before with little success. I thought I would do this again and see if my training over the past month had made me a better spartan at all. The [...]

Recipe: Wholly Guacamole!

December 19th, 2008

Guacamole (walk-a-mole-eeeeeee). Not to be confused with whack-a-mole. A delicious dip/spread/paste made from avocados. Guacamole is a delicious, healthy treat made from avocado and it is easy to make! We like to have guacamole with our steaks frequently. There are a million different ways to make guacamole but I will provide you with 2. The [...]
