Maximizing Delt and Tricep Growth

Bodybuilding is nothing if not a game of balance. The end goal for each of us is a balanced physique where all muscle groups are maximally developed. Once we realize this, we almost always want to know how we can develop each muscle group to its maximum capacity.

Five Cues for the Deadlift

I have to give CrossFit a lot of credit. Although it’s currently popular for many bodybuilders and powerlifters to bash the CrossFit movement, you won’t hear me doing that.

Just Say Yes

People shun hard work. From where I stand, it often looks like people shun effort, especially when demanding physical exertion is involved. You all know what I mean.

Road To Recovery: Part VII

Let’s get one thing straight, you do not simply “do” bodybuilding. Unlike other hobbies which can be compartmentalized, bodybuilding is pervasive. It becomes a lifestyle.

Road to Recovery: Volume VI

If I were to walk into any gym, anywhere in the world, and ask people what they want most from their time training, I would undoubtedly hear a variation on this theme: gain muscle and/or strength, lose fat, or increase speed.

Early on, I learned that all the hard work in the gym would be in vain if your nutritional approach did not support your desired goals. This one fact would prove itself true over and over again throughout my lifetime pursuit of physical improvement. Whether I was an obese 13-year old looking to shed fat, an aspiring teenage bodybuilder looking to get started, a 23-year old stepping on a bodybuilding stage for the first time, or a top level IFBB Pro competing in the Arnold Classic and the Olympia, my understanding of nutrition is something that has been forever changing, evolving, and improving. Throughout all of this, my commitment to supporting health through proper nutrition has been unwavering. A “meathead” approach was never a viable option, at least not for me. I always strive to cut to the chase; I just want what’s genuine, what works, and what’s best. I despise bullshit and gimmicks—in the gym and in the kitchen. I demand quality and results simply because my career and my personal life are about quality and results. It's taken me many years to build trust among my fans…it’s not something I'm willing to squander. This is who I am.
