I’m Coming Back… To Keto.

I have decided after watching a very interesting 21 day keto experiment (shout out to Jason Wittrock) on YouTube that I will return to pure keto from targeted keto and see how it goes. I did do pure keto for a very long time but I have a feeling that I was going way too […]

Summer Wind Down (my rest month)

Its the time of year where I take a bit of time to heal, to let my heavy lifting of the summer get behind me and take some time to do some ancillary work and cardio. I tend to lift pretty heavily during the summer, and almost exclusively certain exercises that eventually leads me to […]

A Month After Cutting Ended

So it’s been a month, I had planned that this month would be pretty static in what I was doing to let my body adjust to what happened and to give myself a bit of a break from the heavy lifting I had been doing. I have stuck with the plan of cycling my workouts […]
