Let’s face it, when life gets in the way, the first healthy habit that disintegrates is your exercise routine. After a hard day at the office, the last thing you want is to go for a run, deadlift or do Yoga. At this point, just putting on your sneakers can be a test of willpower and motivation. When you are tired, exhausted and want to collapse, you are fighting your DNA and won’t win. While many of us succumb to the temptations of Netflix, mindless social media surfing or stuffing our faces with an unhealthy … Read More
A man who took a handful of white pills in an attempt to quiet the demons that called his name… A nearly empty fifth of vodka, perched on a table… A set of dark sunken eyes staring back in a dimly light mirror… The core of a man being challenged by his god…
…..He could no longer escape his past and his future threatened him…. He fell down and got up…. He fell again, this time paralyzed, unable to move… Everything went black….
…An instant that changed his life.
When he woke up, the men wearing white coats said he was two hours away from dying. He’d taken too much this time, it nearly killed him. Next time he might not be lucky.
The pills were supposed to be just like valium- a drug he knew all too well. It wasn’t. The amount of Methadone he’d taken was the equivalent of 4 bags of heroin. Enough to kill most men.
As he lay there, part of him wanted it to be over, to escape the life that that tortured him. It would be easier this way. The the other part still had a spark. That part still wanted to make music, to be a good father and live a good life.
His spark kept him going.
This is his story of Eminem’s recovery. It’s about how he got motivated, created new success habits, used mentors to get his life back and began making music again.
My friend Dave is disappointed with life.
His job sucks, his life lacks meaning, his income is low, and he’s not confident.
All of these issues stem from what he see’s in the mirror. He’s skinny. Like really skinny.
It may be a compliment to call a girl skinny, but It’s the kiss of death for a guy. It not only insults his general manliness, but makes him feel weak, feminine, and soft.
Because he hates the way he looks, he finds it hard to be happy, grateful and assertive in his daily life. You would think this would be enough to start lifting weights and pounding down protein shakes. It isn’t.
Like most of us, he has tried to start an exercise habit, but failed.
In this article, I’m going to show you how to create one that sticks.
MI40 Review I was introduced to MI40 by a friend of mine (thanks Matt) a while back. He raved about a bodybuilder that I had never heard of: Ben Pakulski. He was not one of the big three bodybuilders at the time, so it seemed strange that Matt was so interested in this guy. In the past, I’ve been less than impressed with the training programs of most bodybuilders, as they don’t seem to work unless you are a genetic freak and are willing to re-do your endocrine system. A couple of months later, my training was … Read More
Who’s this for? This post is aimed at the skinny guy looking to add quality muscle and minimize or eliminate fat gain while doing so. Endomorphs or guys who are carrying 30 lbs of extra fat should stop reading right now. Don’t Make My Mistakes My freshman year of college I weighed in at an even 200 lbs. My senior year I topped out around 265 (not all good weight). My four years in college I spent gaining and losing weight depending on whatever activity I was doing at the time. Football season, add a few lbs. … Read More
