Make peace with your plate

By |May 10th, 2015|

I’ve test driven more diets over the years than I can remember. Being a fat kid at heart I’m always wary of the return of the rolls (sans Royce). There’s been some approaches that worked a hell of a lot better than others for me at particular junctures in my life. This […]

Pay it Forward

By |March 9th, 2015|

Having spent a shade over 30 years on this earth means that I’m now relatively matured, almost guaranteed not to get carded again, and comfortable with my wardrobe consisting of 90% sweatpants and t-shirts (I’ll blame it on a mix of age, occupation, and lack of fucks given). This also leaves […]

I’m going to be straight with you as always, there’s no sugar coating to be found here and every expletive found in this post is in your best interest. I’ve done some stupid shit in my time on this earth, my approach to my fitness definitely being no exception. I am like […]

Your last New Years Resolution

By |December 31st, 2014|

Giving up is easy.

There was a span of time in my life where I gave up on myself; a seemingly common predicament of most 20 somethings. The pressures of adulthood just seemed to come bearing down on me and I wasn’t prepared (can you be?). Piece by piece I compromised, I yielded and I submitted […]

Status Update: The next chapter

By |February 18th, 2014|

It’s been awhile, much too long actually since I’ve posted. I spent some time in Florida recently for the Raw Unity 7 meet in support of my girlfriend Alyssa. The meet was really well done and honestly I never thought I’d see pretty much all of raw powerliftings recognizable faces in one room before, so that […]

uncencored fitness truths

By |January 15th, 2014|


Sometimes I need to call bullshit on myself. Having been in this game for long enough to seesaw back into some shit that bit me in the ass I’ve built up some truths over time for my own protection I thought I’d share some. 



If you can’t shit, piss, or bone normally your diet maybe not […]

Some inspiration, no need to wait for the new year

Education and its roundabout lessons

By |December 19th, 2013|

For all intents and purposes I was and always have been a terrible student. School for me was a flurry of half-ass assignments, last minute studying and betting on how much class I could miss and still pass. My record (of not failing) was almost flawless; though the overpowering allure of the next door breakfast […]

Our finest moments

By |December 14th, 2013|

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
