I totally understand what kind of job you had. I work at a Wally World distribution center. Started in shipping, loading about 3 to 4 full semi’s a day. Didn’t know how much weight I loaded. Then switched to non conveyable. When in dog food, I’d stack about 60k/lbs in 12 hours. That was MUCH easier than shipping. My first year, I struggled. Then I talked to my bro-in-law, who is a personal trainer, found and I started to do good. I was taking creatine and C4 prior to work, and took an Animal Pak with UniLiver every break, while eating protien every 3-4 hours. This brought me to Muscle for Life and The Books. I’m in maintenance department now, and are about to join a gym. I’ve been wanting to get the Legion multi’s and switch to Legion supplements. I’m about done reading BLS, and are gonna start the year one challenge. I’ve aready bought BBLS and Shredded Chef. I get excited every time I think about my goals.
It’s no secret there exist a strong anti-steroidal population and as this “anti” feeling is often so emotionally based it can produce some laughable claims. If you’ve been around the performance enhancing game for any length of time you’re familiar with all the names and acronyms so this will probably make you laugh. Yes, there are a few street names for steroids such as juice or roids but those are some very generic terms and really don’t point to anything specific. We went to a handful of the anti-steroid websites so desperate to paint anabolic hormones in a bad light and they have made up their own street names for steroids that are quite humorous and they include “Pumpers, Gym Candy, Arnolds, Stackers, Balls and Bulls, A’s, Weight Trainers.” “Weight Trainers” are you serious, Arnolds? If that didn’t make you laugh a little then you don’t have a sense of humor but the sad truth is these websites are real and many of them are funded by your government.
Last week the biggest internet story in the health field was the news that coconut oil is supposedly bad for you. This wasn’t just the usual throwaway fodder posted by breathless bloggers, but was picked up by respected news outlets . Shame that they didn’t do their homework before hopping aboard the latest nonsensical nutrition bandwagon. First off, you would’ve thought that we’d put the outdated and discredited “fat is bad” narrative to the sword by now. A large body of research shows that ketogenic and other high fat diets are effective in minimizing the number and severity of seizures in people with epilepsy and other brain disorders, aiding athletic performance and recovery and, when replacing sugar-derived calories, in reducing the incidence of metabolic, cardiovascular and digestive conditions . Meanwhile, low fat diets that are high in sugar are at the root of many of the health issues that Big Sugar tried to pin on fat for decades (see Gary Taubes’s book The Case Against Sugar ).
