The older and wiser you get, the more you start to realize there are certain "universalities" common to successful outcomes in all of life's endeavors. These realizations are as certain as the law of gravity, albeit less obvious. You should know and understand these common threads because they make success less random and more predictable.
Q & A with John Paul Catanzaro
Two years ago my wife and I tried cyclic ketogenic dieting. We knew that many of the concepts behind these diets were valid but there was a practical, behavioral problem for us: we could no longer function as a stable, productive human beings on such low carb intakes.
Part Three of the Just Suck It Up Series
Thanksgiving was a fatty, sugary good time. I've never been one to do the old "modified recipe" thing when it comes to traditional holidays. Mashed potatoes and gravy, eggnog, pumpkin pie – it's all good to me.
Eight foods that have been wrecked by science, plus the healthier alternatives.
Have you ever wanted to be recognized as an authority on bodybuilding, powerlifting, and performance enhancement?
An interview with Stuart McGill
Breathing isn't one of those things we normally think about. Being the morons that we are – according to the general public, at least – bodybuilders generally prefer to devote our limited brain power towards things which seem more pertinent, such as calculating food intake or figuring out which tank top will make our guns look the biggest (okay, maybe that one's just me).

An Interview with Attorney Rick Collins
We can't escape the clock, as hormones and blood constituents rise and fall throughout the day, as does our glucose tolerance. In fact, glucose tolerance can become so poor in the evening, researchers have related it to Type II diabetes!
Five Exercises for Fierce Forearms!
What Your Doctor, Your Friends, Your Mamma, and Maybe Even You Don't Know About Steroids
Train like a man, not a rodent!
I've been riddled with guilt. I threw out a batch of mom's Christmas cookies today. Her fudge went too soft – as did my wife's cornbread-sausage stuffing, the candied yams, and the bowls of lovingly prepared homemade munchies that have been sitting around my house.
The best exercises are often the ones you aren't using. To prevent adaptation, try some of these unconventional movements.
An Interview with Christian Thibaudeau
Let's see if this situation sounds vaguely familiar. You're passionate about taking care of your body. You work out, you eat right, and you take supplements to fine tune the way your body looks, feels, and functions. If you piled up all the hours you've spent studying all this stuff, you'd think some University would just flat out give you a PhD.
Across-the-board condemnation of dietary fat is like branding all drugs as bad... or all people of a particular ethnic background as undesirable. I suppose we could call the media hype against fat "nutritional racism."
