So, let's talk about one of my pet hates, "leg day" for females. If you're a female looking to improve your legs and butt then training legs once per week just won't cut it.


Sure, some hardcore individuals train bodyparts once per week but this is usually some epic 2-3 hour session plus a superb diet, tonnes of supplements and maybe some pharmaceutical assistance.


For everybody else, do you really think some half assed 45min session consisting of half depth squats, followed by some leg press, l...

I'm sure most people have heard the myth that weight training makes females "bulky". There's also the myth that strength training (whether for powerlifting, strongman or just "heavy" weight training) makes you fat. Both are wrong. I'd like to show you a comparison between myself andIron Underground coach/lifer, One Rep Nat Strength & Conditioning:

Let's talk about that dreaded word... cardio. I believe the way most people perform cardio is a total waste of time. Let's take somebody who runs on a treadmill for 30mins every weekday morning/evening:
They aren't getting stronger.
They aren't building muscle mass.
They aren't "toning". 
They aren't losing fat (unless their daily calorie intake is in deficit but that's caused by diet, not exercise)


By running on a treadmill for 30mins all somebody is doing is getting better at running on a tre...

Stoked to hit PBs on all lifts with a 290kg squat, an ugly 162.5kg bench and a new Aus deadlift record of 331kg for a +43.5kg competition PB and 2nd place. Thanks to everyone who cheered at the event, sent FB messages or watched online. Thanks also to coach Dorny for today's support, Cameron for the encouragement & lols, my family and everybody at today's competition. Things look good for me attending the IPF world championships in Finland in June so time to knuckle down and hopefull...

Following on from the previous post about Multi-Level Marketing companies, let's now talk about all these scam weight loss pills.

Remember garcinia cambogia earlier this year? It doesn't work.
Remember green coffee bean before that? It doesn't work.
Remember raspberry ketones before that? It doesn't work.

Now you might disagree with me and believe 'magic product X' works. It's a super special berry found deep in the Amazonian jungle and you saw it on the internet so it must be true! 

In the U...

Let's talk about all those companies you see people everywhere pushing. Isagenix, Herbalife, Yorhealth, Amway, Juiceplus etc. Most of these are Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) companies. My issue with MLM companies is whoever is selling their products has a vested interest. No matter what product you want to buy, it's in their best financial interest for them to sell you their branded product. 

I've worked in pharmacy for ~10 years & have have a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) whi...
