Breakdown Before Breakthrough | The 2012 Ravens
Today, President Obama welcomed my hometown Baltimore Ravens to the White House to congratulate the team on its Super Bowl win over the 49ers earlier this year.
For all of us long suffering Ravens fans out there, this win was amazing…and I think it tasted even sweeter than our Super Bowl win in 2000 because we came so close so many times…

Asian Turkey Burger Recipe
Let’s face it…eating boiled, sodium-less, tasteless, rubbery, chicken, broccoli, and brown rice (or even worse, Tilapia & asparagus) meals every day when you’re trying to get or stay fit SUCKS.
My advice is not to do it.
Because it SUCKS. Duh.
Now, I LOVE to eat, but I absolutely HATE eating “healthy” crap every... [Read more of this review]
The Prison Workout
Let’s face it, prisoners are some of the most jacked dudes on the planet.
Yep…they’re gym “freaks”…which is kind of ironic considering how many FREE men out there make lame excuses about why they have weak, flabby physiques…

The Renegade Diet – A Real User Opinion | Review
I get emails just about every day with questions about The Renegade Diet.
Many ask if it’s legit, if I actually use it, how I use it, what effects it has had on my strength, size, bodyfat, energy levels, etc.
Note: I snapped the cheesy ‘selfie’ bathroom mirror pic on the right while using The Renegade Diet.

Effort and Immortality: The Ray Lewis Legacy
Love him or hate him, you’ll always remember him…and hopefully when it’s all said and done, always respect him.
If you’re unfamiliar with his story, it all started at The “U” (my beloved University of Miami), and now Ray is in the twilight of an amazing hall of fame football career.
He is arguably the greatest Middle Linebacker... [Read more of this review]
The Reinvention of Self
Another year has come and gone, and now is the time most of us will sit back and assess ourselves and our achievements, or lack thereof.
It’s New Year’s Resolution time!

14 Lessons From Oscar Pistorius (aka Blade Runner)
There’s not much worse than living a life of worry; a life of mediocrity; a life of weakness. A life of regret.
Unfortunately, many people live life on their knees – spending the majority of their time being mentally bullied by stress, worry, fear, hate, and regret. It’s an epidemic, especially in modern culture. It’s like people have everything... [Read more of this review]
How To Get Ripped Like An Olympic Sprinter
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past week or so you’ll know that the 2012 Olympics are in full force right now.
You ‘non-hiding-under-a-rock-peeps’ will probably also know that Usain Bolt successfully defended his 100 meters title, shattered the Olympic record, and made history with a blazing 9.63 second time.

Busy Man Workouts
There’s a big misconception out there that if you work in an office (aka sit on your ass from 9-5 or later)…you’re lazy and unmotivated if you’re “too tired to train” either before or after work.
This assumption is 100% FALSE.

59 Tips To Improve Your Health and Physique (Part 1)
I’ll just skip the cheesy intro and get right into it…
1. Always follow the laws of real nutrition. If you can’t kill it, pick it, or grow it – avoid it.

Be All You Can Be
Rewind 20 years and I was a young kid with crazy dreams and aspirations. (Check me out, I’m on the right)

The Truth About Food Additives
It’s no secret, many of the ingredients and additives found in our food supply can be extremely controversial, even downright scary.
In fact, sometimes it almost seems as if making sense of a food label requires a degree in food science or environmental chemistry…
For example, some commonly used food additives include: Sulfated butyl oleate,... [Read more of this review]
10 Tips For Better Digestion
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – all diseases start in the gut.
If you have poor gut health (which usually begins with poor digestion) you will constantly feel run down and sick, your body will function at less efficient levels, and your risk of chronic disease increases significantly.
As discussed in previous posts, good... [Read more of this review]
