3 years ago, Emma was born.
Yes, our little warrior princess is growing up fast!
3 years and 10 months ago, I figured out a loophole in supplementing with testosterone.
You see, I have always been a practitioner of direct knowledge, mainly through self-experimentation.
And one of the areas of expertise that I have developed this in is in testosterone replacement therapy.
As I’ve gotten back into the training aspect at Newell Strength, I have really been enjoying listening to and thinking about the philosophy of some of the bodybuilding greats.
Men that have inspired me and that have played a huge role in my development.
Socrates has a quote that resonated with what I have been thinking alot about lately, ‘No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.’
You shape your mind through your body.
Your body is the temple, treat it as such and watch how your philosophy of life changes.
Here are some great clips with some of the characters I mentioned in the episode:

Way back in 1997, when I first began to take my strength training seriously, I knew that nutrition was going to be the other wheel of my ‘fitness bike’.
I wanted to get big.
I wanted to put on muscle.
And I knew that I needed to support that with nutrients and extra building blocks.
I would drink these banana chalk shakes, in which I had to plug my nose.
There were quite a few times in which I actually force fed myself to the point of vomiting.
While experimenting with the Cylce Diet, I put on legendary eating shows, consuming upwards of 20,000 calories in a day, many, many times.
I’ve seen and done it all with nutrition.
Which has all led me to the Panda Diet.
Take a listen and enjoy as I share some of the stories that formed the basis for my philosophy on nutrition.
On the way home from Italy, I was able to read an entire book, ‘Yes to Life’, which had a few golden nuggets in it.
In today’s episode, I talk about:
-fulfillment in life
-the purpose of life (it’s not set in stone)
And much more.
Don’t say no to life when it gets tough, accept it as part of your journey.
Enjoy the episode!
