The 3-Step Beach Physique Transformation Process

Hey guys and gals, Kalai and I are in the process of putting together our free “Beach Physique Guide”.

Free meaning to “trick” you into signing up for our blog — don’t worry, we provide awesome information meant to actually help you, not bullshit.

“Beach Physique Guide” meaning training and nutrition programs geared specifically towards slashing fat, building a beach-ready body, and looking awesome with your shirt off, pants off, or walking around naked (not getting better at doing a bunch of exercises and drills in the gym, but getting nowhere with your physique goals).

This thing is gonna be cool man — an ebook plus an ongoing e-course/newsletter with emails and videos, etc.  This may be my final fitness coaching swan song, because I’m kind of getting bored with it all.  I may just go back to competing myself, and doing something else.

But first, I need to leave you with a comprehensive resource so you can learn everything you need to know to slash fat, transform your physique, and look awesome.  By the end, you’ll know more than 90% of the trainers out there — at least when it comes to body composition transformation — and you’ll be able to be your own physique coach.  You won’t need me or any other guru around to get the job done.

This guide is gonna be just that. So get your bikini or dong thong ready.

Anyways, that’s right around the corner.  For now, I was editing and uploading some of the videos, and thought these two in particular might help give you a good idea of our overall approach to body composition transformation, physique enhancement, etc.

Once you understand Da Big Picture, we can dive into Da Details. Here’s the vi-vi-videos:

The Irish Farmer’s Diet

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  May you have a little luck of the Irish, and get lucky, tonight.

In year’s past, right about this time of day, I’d be getting a call from Ol’ Patty — my full-blooded, Irish mama.   She would undoubtedly go on a profanity-laced tirade, yell at me about something, and then proceed to tell me how St Patrick’s Day is, and always will be, the greatest day of the year.  She’d also tell me what restaurant I was to take her to that upcoming weekend for steak and booze to celebrate.

But unfortunately, she ain’t around no more.  So I decided to do a post in honor of one of her wishes instead. She used to ask, “when are you going to talk about your better side’s diet — your Irish side’s diet.  You always just talk about that dumb Japanese diet”  Yes, she was slightly racist, even against her own children.  What can you say? She was one of a kind, and I loved her.

Here’s a video that talks about the benefits of my mama’s “Irish Farmer’s” diet, and how you can use that and other healthy cultural diet templates, to simplify the food choice process. I lean more towards carb-based diets for anaerobic athletes and those who strength train on a regular basis, so the ol’ meat and potatoes fits in perfect.  Thank my mama for being in my ear all the time about this one: Read the rest of this entry

Men’s Fitness Article: 5 Keys to Conquering Any Fitness Challenge

When you understand yourself and you understand the enemy you cannot be defeated. ~ Miyamoto Musashi

What is the biggest cause of failure in fitness, besides my buddies Ben & Jerry, and Mrs. Butterworth? Honestly, it has nothing to do with the details of a diet or training program.  Most people know what to do.  Since I’ve dedicated my life and career to this game, I’d love to make it seem more complicated in order to validate my credentials, schooling, and personal obsession.  But it just isn’t so.

The “what to do” is straightforward and simple.

So why do some breeze through with ease, while others constantly get stuck in a rut?

Well, nothing can cure outright laziness and entitlement to be honest.  But beyond that, if you have sincere goals and are willing to put forth an honest effort, I think it all comes down to having the right mindset and the right strategies.  Some may write this off as self-help nonsense, but if you haven’t gotten to where you want to go, you have no right to criticize.  In fact, you might want to throw an ear in and listen.
