“The Internet Loves You” – November 2014

For this month’s theme of “The Internet Loves You“, I want to bring your attention to Cryotherapy. With cryotherapy, a person gets exposed to super low temperatures (around -120 Celsius) for a very short duration. The biggest benefit of this kind of medical therapy is that it lowers inflammation in the body, e.g. in a joint or muscle tissue. There are not many cryotherapy centres around the world, and there is no one near me here in Copenhagen. However, my … Continue reading

Mastering the Freestanding Handstand – Video

One the fitness goals I have been pursuing in the past few months is the Freestanding Handstand. The goal is to hold a static freestanding handstand for 60 seconds at the end of the year. It’s one thing to building strength and mass by adding more weight to the bar. It’s an entirely different thing to learn how to balance your body by improving muscle coordination and motor control. While I am still all about getting stronger by moving higher … Continue reading

Interview with Janis Budde of Primal-State.de

Janis Budde is the guy behind the German website Primal-State.de. He has been heavily influenced by the whole biohacking and Quantified Self movement, which is why I was interested to ask him a few questions:   1) Just like I, you are also 24 years old and super passionate about biohacking your overall performance as a human being. Give us a short bio of yourself and maybe you have an explanation on why more and more people in their early … Continue reading

My New Barefoot Shoes – Vivobarefoot Gobi II

Ever since I have started this blog in May 2012, I have been interested in barefoot walking. Unless I could walk on beach sand all day long, real barefoot walking is far from practical given our urban lifestyle. That’s why I have looked into barefoot shoes with very flat shoes which provide most of the benefits of walking barefoot while keeping the feet injury-free. My Previous Barefoot Shoes So far, I have owned two different pairs of barefoot shoes: Leguano Premium and Merrell Vapor … Continue reading

Developing the Habit of Warming Up Properly

I like to recall a quote that has stuck around with me that I first heard from Doug McGuff: “You Win By Not Losing.”   Lots of trainees don’t make the progress they wish to see for the simple reason that they get injured. It sounds so logical on paper: You cannot get better if you are injured! And yet in real life, one might think that a lot of people working out implicitly wait for injuries to occur. Why? Because … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Mass Gaining Shake

I thought it would be interesting to share a video where  I present my “Peanut Butter Mass Gaining Shake” I have been drinking twice daily right after my biggest meals. The rationale with this shake is to create caloric surplus each training day to help your body recover better and grow more muscle. It is often debated forth and back, but I think that food is the ABSOLUTELY number #1 limiting factor why people stall in the gym and don’t … Continue reading

Why Men Should Ejaculate Less

Time Mismatch Between Male and Female Orgasm All too often, the duration of sexual intercourse depends heavily on how long it takes the man to ejaculate. As every sexually unsatisfied woman will tell you, this wouldn’t be much of a problem provided that men were able to resist the need to ejaculate prematurely. As you can see from the graph, roughly 3 minutes is the average arousal time it takes for a man to reach his climax and ejaculate. Men’s … Continue reading

Stop Watching Online Porn

Young guys need to understand that internet porn is seriously fucking up the fine-tuned hormonal balance in their brain every time they watch some hardcore gang-raping porn featuring some hot bitches getting fucked in kinds of holes. Most guys will never ever come close to having crazy sex orgies like the stuff they are regularly watching on the porn sites. And this is where the real problem lies: Your personal sexual reality does not match the reality of what you … Continue reading

“Sunray” Exercise for the Rotator Cuff (Video)

I recently got myself a bunch of elastic bands with different levels of resistance. The main reason I bought them is to use for warming up and doing mobilisation exercises before workouts. What I like the most about elastic bands is that you can sustain an isometric contraction of the muscles which is harder to accomplish with free weights. The bands also do a great job at getting blood moving quickly into the muscles and achieving a nice pump. (sidenote: … Continue reading
