Working for Neurons Inc & Moving to Medellin, Colombia

In the last 3 years, I have never taken as long a break from blogging as I have over the last few months. Since my „Lean & Jacked 2015 Diet Finished“ in June, I just was not feeling the inner drive to write about fitness-related topics any longer. Sure enoug,h, I will still be posting about insights I gain from training, but not with the frequency of the last few years. I also want to use this website more of a gateway … Continue reading

„Lean & Jacked 2015″ – Diet Finished

Last week, the 2015 edition of my „Lean & Jacked Diet“ came to an end after 6 weeks of dieting. Like in 2014, I wasn’t dieting for a bodybuilding contest or a special Day X. My motifs for becoming lean and jacked were more for personal reasons as I wanted to explore what dietary interventions it takes to take my body to low body fat level (~7-8%). Starting Weight: 87,8 kg (18 May 2015) End Weight: 85,0 kg (25 June 2015) … Continue reading

„The Internet Loves You“ – May 2015

As I am in the process of my 6-week „Lean & Jacked 2015″ cutting diet and nearing the end of the second week, I must admit that I have not been as strict as I would like to be with my eating habits. I have been indulging a little bit too much on the fats still – because well, fats make meals taste good! That’s why I haven’t quite made the fat loss progress I would like to see. But … Continue reading

„Lean & Jacked 2015″

After last year’s first edition of my „Lean & Jacked“ program, I am back in 2015 ready to get shredded for this summer season. If you have missed my pictures when I was the leanest I have ever been, check them out HERE. See my article from Christmas time 2014 when I was bulking heavy and pushing towards a bodyweight of 90 kg. This year, it’s going to be close to 6 weeks of dieting again but this time it goes from 18 … Continue reading

Are You Texting Or Training?

What I saw in the gym today, trumped everything that I have been noticing over the last year or so. While I was mentally psyching myself up for a new 1 Rep Max on my Front Squat, I cannot but notice 4 guys sitting on a bench each right in front of the dumbbell racks. Literally, as I look over, all 4 guys simultaneously have their heads bent over and keep staring at their  stupid fucking smartphones. Rather than being 100% present … Continue reading

Why Protein is the Only Macronutrient I Bother Counting

Don’t Become a Neurotic Food Weigher Too many books written, too many debates fought, too much time wasted arguing about the most ideal amount/percentage of macronutrients and calories to achieve the most optimal natural muscle growth. For me personally, if I had to count and weigh all the food I consume on a daily basis, I would literally go insane and become clinically OCD about it. I think it makes sense for somebody starting out on a new way of eating to … Continue reading

30-Sec Free Handstand – Video

Ever since my last update on Mastering the Freestanding Handstand I have made some decent progress on getting to a freestanding 60 sec handstand. As you can see in the video, I am able to keep my body more tense which allows to maintain a hollow body position for longer. My head position is still not ideal but that habit of tilting my head is hard to correct. One of the things I am still struggling with is to get into … Continue reading

„The Internet Loves You“ – March 2015

For the first two months of this year I didn’t post anything for monthly post of „The Internet Loves You“ because I didn’t spend much cyber time on the internet and was traveling instead. However, this month the claws of the internet monsters have dragged me back into the grind and into its maelstrom. Anyway, these are the things I found interesting this month: One of my favourite powerlifters talks about how „Social Media Takes Over Your Life“. After essentially … Continue reading

Exploring the Art of Vagabonding

This is the second post of the series on “My Trip to Cuba“. Surrounded by pristine Cuban forest wilderness and lying on a shaky rustic wooden bed, I decided to relax after a long day of cycling and listen to THIS podcast with Rolf Potts. Even though I was tired as hell, as the interview went on I increasingly got more excited about what the topic they were talking about. The basic proposition of Rolf Pott’s philosophy is that we … Continue reading

I Am Officially a Killer – How I Knifed My First Pig

This is the first post of the series on „My Trip to Cuba„.   Besides the small frog I had tortured and killed at my grandma’s country house when I was 8 years old, I haven’t killed any substantially-sized animal in my life. Well, this all changed recently in an far away deep forest in Cuba  when I took the life of a 22-kg pig by stabbing an old rusty knife directly into its heart. Watch the video below if you aren’t too … Continue reading
