Program Review–Doggcrapp Training

This is a long time coming, but I wasn’t in a place to write about it until now, so here goes. Last year for almost the entire year I ran DC full time. I was coming back from an injury, and I decided that honestly, my biggest goal is not to get as strong as […]

A Cure for Gout

Well, first things first, the title is admittedly a bit sensationalized, but I believe it’s largely justified. ‘Cure’ might be too strong of  a word from a scientific perspective, but it’s largely an accurate assessment of the results I’ve seen from a purely qualitative perspective. First, let me explain why ‘curing’ gout is a big […]

The 2014 Shelby GT500–A Review

As some of you may know, back in March I traded my 2012 GT500 in on a 2014 GT500. I’ve now had the car for a little over two months, and put about 4,000 miles on it (including a trip to the track), so I wanted to give the car a proper review. Additionally, I […]

High-Protein Slow-Cooker Recipes

Thanks to Jaime Lewis’ excellent ‘Stew-Roids’ series (link is NSFW), I have spent the last six months or so eating and experimenting with high-protein stew-like recipes. In general, I’ve found that I really like stews. They are pretty complete nutritionally, tasty, keep well, and generally reheat well. Also, there’s a lot of range for something […]

Wisdom from a Master

This week, I got the opportunity to get a training session from the current all-federation raw World Record holder in the 242lb weight class, Dan Green. The session was hugely enlightening, and after taking a few days to let some of it gel in my mind, I wanted to take the opportunity to review my […]

Addressing the Elephant in the Room – Pt. 2: The Elephant’s Shadow

In Part 1 of this little series, I addressed a contentious bit of speculation regarding my own personal use of steroids and what benefits TRT doses of Testosterone may or may not have had on my progress over the last two years. At that time, I mentioned that the major thing I wanted to address […]

Cisco Permit ACL to Deny Access to Private Address Blocks

It’s pretty common these days to want to block private IP ranges on your firewall or router in order to protect from DDoS attacks. However, when setting one of these up at work recently, I found out that almost all of the existing posts on doing this with Cisco ACLs involve deny or mixed ACLs. […]

Addressing the Elephant in the Room – Pt. 1: The Elephant Itself

In a number of places, I’ve seen people who are dismissive of someone’s progress (including my own) or minimize it with statements like ‘Dat dere CellTech’, which is really just a euphemism for ‘He’s on steroids’. While this has bugged me, I’ve never posted on it mainly because I don’t feel like there’s any point. […]

More Data is Always Positive

Something that I’ve seen over and over throughout the last few years in the realm of weight loss is the advice to only weigh yourself at long intervals, typically once a week, so I wanted to take the time to refute this stance a little. The idea around weighing yourself at extended intervals is to […]

“Happy Holidays, now buy my fitness/nutrition book”

If you follow any fitness or nutrition blogs, you’ve probably seen this kind of message posted. You may have even been unlucky enough to get an email or twelve from some fitness person hawking whatever their latest fitness or nutrition book is. If this sounds familiar, let me clear the air on what these are […]
