Day 68 of 90: HSW, J rock and i'm back home:) yeah
|Chicago Warrior statue...STRONG!!|
I've been a personal trainer / strength coach for 31 years, i've seen alot and tried alot of different things and it usually comes down to some simple rules. As a young trainer in LA i asked Reg Parks, one of the greatest strongmen and bodybuilders of all time for some advice....i asked him what is the best way to get stronger, he simply said, eat more and train harder/heavier. i've always liked his simplicity of training it for sure worked for him:) I bring this up because alot of people have said to me over these years "oh you'd be so much bigger if you ate meat, or if you lifted weights". Even today i hear the same thing!! Honestly it is crazy, when i was 25 years old i was in about the exact same shape i'm in now, when i was an NBA strength coach, when i was 32 same shape as i'm in now when i began brazilian jiu-jitsu and in both of these cases i ate alot of meat, actually a ton of meat and whey protein powders...easily 200g a day. and you know what same exact lean body mass as i am right now!! Same across the board high levels of fitness...but i had alot of injuries in the works, like my super tight hips and shoulders. Anyways last night in chicago i'm in the food section of barnes and nobles looking at all types of books and i see the paleo diet book, so i breeze thru it and he states without question you cannot eat a 100% plant based diet and get the same results....I LAUGHED!! it is crazy how people say you must kill animals in order to be strong...bull!! the facts are..i am so much more healthier today than before it's a joke, my kidneys hurt all the time (back pain), horrible sleep, joint pain...and of course killing alot of animals and helping global warming....NOTHING POSITIVE!
Question for you all....are you healthier today or the same as you were when you use to eat (and kill) alot of animals.
