I’m actually someone that has been overweight basically my whole life. With no help from anyone, through trial and error I have been able to figure out the formula that worked for me.

Nicks strength and power delivered some awesome news about Larry Wheels today. Larry Wheels is considering competing in the worlds strongest man competition. Can or will he win? Should he try? Should he just focus on being th best power lifter? What are your thoughts?
After competing in bodybuilding and training hard as hell, along with the heavy food and supplementation my body has been through hell. I’m now at the point where I feel as if nothing is working when it comes to making progress in training.
So decided that if I keep doing the same things over and over again. Then I should probably be prepared to get the same results. Right?
Starting over from scratch. I decided to do a 40 day natural cleanse. This cleanse will consist of just eating fruits and vegetables along with just drinking water. My theory is that maybe if I deplete everything, then when time to add certain things back into my training and diet regimen.
I’m also a fan of intermittent fasting, and I love to challenge myself. So what the hell, let’s combine them. My intermittent vegan detox challenge.
Go through the journey with me. Let’s see what type of results we get.
In society, when a person chooses to attempt something that separates him or herself from the average person, it seems the automatic reaction is to frown upon it. I’ll take that back, people will shame you just for doing basic things. So obviously if this is the case when it comes to in shape or even worse being a bodybuilder. With the obesity rate being so high in America, you can see why most people would frown upon someone who focuses on taking care of their body. Oh, it’s not just us. If you’re in the process of getting into shape or even thinking about getting into shape you’ll feel the raft also.
What is fit shaming? It get’s terrible whenever I’m getting prepared for a bodybuilding competition. I’ve been told that I’m too skinny, too muscular, too lean and worst of all TOO HEALTHY(sounds crazy but true). I never thought that I would ever hearing something so stupid. Then you have the statements which insult you mental health, such as you’re obsessed and sick. It’s quite entertaining actually. Trust me it’s true. I’ve witnessed it on social media and with others in person. It’s always been frowned upon when putting down fat, I mean morbidly obese people(let’s keep it pc). So with saying
The only difference with us is that the shaming doesn’t work. It’s adding oxygen to a fire. Why you may ask? Because we love this shit! There’s no better feeling than challenging yourself. Out doing each and every workout. Competing against the most important person. That would be yourself. In our minds, pain equals pleasure. Knowing that the next man doesn’t have the heart to do what I do motivates me. When ever someone is bothered by someone being fit, it’s just jealousy. The crazy thing is that everyone has the opportunity to get into shape, and feel amazing. They just didn’t take advantage of it. So who’s fault is that? If it’s not for medical reasons, your own fault. One thing that they don’t realize is that we embrace that negativity because you are basically letting us know that our efforts are paying off. So the next time you hear something about you are too muscular, too lean and addicted to working. Let’s just take it as a compliment. Be proud of yourself, and go harder!
1. Improved Posture
Doing deadlifts will increase your strength of your core. This will improve your core stability. This movement will activate every muscle responsible for your posture. This lift will enable you to keep your back straight even during daily activities.
2. More Muscles Targeted
This movement activates more muscles than any other exercise. Dead lifts even activates more muscles that the squat. This movement engages all of the major muscle groups. If there was on exercise that you need to do, this is the one. The Dead lift works your lower and upper body, including especially your back muscles.
3. Beneficial for your real life
When you do other lifting exercises, like curls for example you’re not doing anything you might actually do in your real life. When are you ever going to have the need to pick something up and curl it for an actual purpose? The Deadlift develops the muscles you need to actually carry something, like a bucket of water, those heavy grocery bags or your dining room table.
4. Improves Your Grip Strength
Deadlifts are well known for their ability to build and improve your grip strength. Your fingers are literally the only things connecting you to the weight of the bar. Your forearms have to work extremely hard as your weight rises to keep the bar from falling out of your hands. As a result your grip strength improves.
5. Increases Hormones
Doing dead lifts with heavy weight, you can increase the amount of testosterone and growth hormone produced by your body. Testosterone increases muscle growth and improves muscle repair while growth hormone, which is produced by your pituitary gland, promotes tissue healing, bone strength, muscle growth and fat loss.
Monday is normally international chest day in the gym. With saying for some reason everyone wanted to use the sorinexpower racks to perform their max out bench press movements. Normally when all the squat racks are occupied, I’d view this as a positive. When squats are actually being done.
Since frustration is the BEST pre workout, I decided to take full advantage of it. This seemed to make my workout even better. We kept our workout simple but intense. Leg press and squats. What else do you really need?

It’s rare for a person to enter into a new relationship without there being a child from a previous relationship. My question is, how much input should the husband or new boy friend have when it comes to an active father’s child? Also should the new husband require that child support continue to be paid?

In the black community, mental illness is a regular thing just in any other community. The only difference is that it’s not acknowledged or addressed. I’ve grown up haw hearing the idioutic saying “black people don’t do that”. Needless to as an adult, that theory has been shot down. Since ignorance is bliss, there are so many black men and women that refuse to acknowledge that they have mental issues that should be addressed by professionals.
