Fasting vs. 5 Meals a Day (video)

Hello all! I am terribly overdue for new updates on my Warrior Diet self-experimenting, and am trying to carve out time for more regular updates. A new job and a few new side projects have unfortunately taken up the majority of my time. I plan to get an update soon about my experience on the

Do You “Pay” for Yourself in this World?

In my previous job as a salesperson in the IT industry, our CEO made an interesting point when addressing our sales team during a conference call of the motivational (or, maybe more accurately, kick-in-the-ass) variety.

Decisiveness: Make a Decision and THEN Make it Right

My Warrior Diet Workout Plan

I am a big believer in compound lifts, meaning multi-joint movements that require several muscles to work at one time. For example, chin-ups are more effective than a bicep isolation exercise such as curls. I have always tried to structure my workouts around the main compound exercises for each muscle group.
