How to Maintain Muscle While Cutting

They go into the diet with good intentions, but they just can’t seem to maintain muscle or strength once things get moving along.

Alive But Not Living

The natural human way is to take the path of least resistance. To seek pleasure & avoid pain. To do what is easiest. What everyone else does. What’s safe and normal.

Look around you, and the world is overflowing with mediocrity & below. People mool about like zombies, mindlessly living a life of complacency and custom – distinct individuals but indistinguishable one from the other. No energy. No passion. No direction. No soul.

3 Quick and Easy Alpha Body Language Fixes

Everyone has this erroneous idea of alpha meaning you drive a ‘Rarri and bang 20 foreign women every second. No no no no no no. Alpha is a state of being, first and foremost. It is who you are, which is later translated into thoughts, actions, and habits – which then can result in nice things, but those nice things are not the requirement to be alpha.
