I've been trying to boil potatoes whenever possible for health reasons, so I was a bit perplexed to read this. The theory makes sense to me, or maybe I'm just gullible. What are your thoughts?Myth:…Continue

HIYA Matt!
Please send me an email to troysantos@gmail.com. I've typed a long response but it's more than 5000 characters so I'd much rather send it all at once in an email that split it up between several PMs. 
Thanks much,

hey Matt! Lol! We are of the same cloth my friend. Just sayin'... be very very stingy with your energy output!!!!!! I learned the hard way (wasting lots and lots of energy) trying to "get a great workout" when all I wanted to do was put some functional beef on my super lanky gangly 133 lb six foot tall frame! (36 inch sleeve length... was able to put my thumb and forefinger clear 'round my upper arm when I began!)

It is extremely important to differentiate between "weight training", "weight lifting" and "bodybuilding"... They are similar but no way the same!

You did not specify what your goal was, but it has to be SPECIFIC (Like ANYthing in life worth achieving it must be narrow and deep). Too many people want it all and they get nowhere and waste time and effort "eating soup with a fork" when all they need to do is understand and APPLY the FUNDAMENTALS of physiology - which starts with Specificity!!!!!

Bottom line: If you want to build muscle (not JUST strengthen it along w/ ligaments, tendons, etc., then you had better be REALLY protective of your systemic energy and never EVER workout with weights "to get a good workout" or to "work up a sweat" lol... (sure you will sweat from effort, but for the PURPOSE OF PROGRESSION THAT IS ALL. Plus, on this diet you need so little cardio it is not funny !I (I will never understand why anyone in their right mind would want to run anyway lol lol lol!!! I am in the best company too since as it turns out, the "Father of Aeorobics Dr Ken Cooper agreed with me three decades ago when he literally wrote the book on cardio exercsise. I even went to Dallas to take the course at that time.

So unless you LOVE to run (and do not mind exhausting yourself for no good reason and nothing to show for it, or you are the type that loves the macho competition syndrome - yuck - then do very little cardio.. and do not worry! There is no connection between lack of exercise and heart disease as you most probably know! Diet is the culprit there. It has never been proven otherwise.

Extra cardio , even in your THR need only be done for 12 minutes two or three times per week to produce CHAMPION levels of endurance, and in only six weeks time. If that. I know. Been there done that. But the price is to look emaciated, which is my natural genetic state... and no way do I want to even look slightly corpse- like lol! It is all about LIFE man!!! :)

Matt sorry for the delay. Good question! The confusion arises from differentiating local muscle failure, fatigue & recuperation/burnout to SYSTEMIC "failure" (hopefully that never happens or one faints or dies lol!) . 

The key is progression. So do as little possible to progress, within a reasonable time as per your cycle, where you reach new strength/development plateaus after which time you take a planned rest. Then start again!

Taller people, or those who abuse their bodies by not getting enough sleep, calories, etc, will have to use trial and error to figure out the perfect balance for them. Those who are shorter and stockier and who have "better stock" will probably never have to worry. They are the ones who gain in spite of what they do instead of because of it. Of course, these can be the champions if they apply the same fundamentals of recuperation and progress to their stellar genetics!

Eye have good news.

Posted on October 11, 2012 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Got my eyes examined today for the first time in over two years. And for the first time since I started wearing glasses, they didn't get worse! Bad news is they didn't improve, either. I'm thinking in the past two years, my eyes either: A. Leveled out and stayed the same, or B. My vision continued getting worse but started to improve as horribly diagrammed in my sweet Microsoft Paint document below. Where the yellow bars start going down is approximately when I started to try to improve my…


119 mile bike ride aka worst day of my life

Posted on April 30, 2012 at 12:59pm 7 Comments

Today, I thought it'd be a great idea to go from my 50 mile route and upgrade to a 100 mile route, but apparently the trail went ~20 miles further than I thought. When I got to the 60 mile halfway point, I turned around, and it started raining a half mile into my ride back. And it kept raining. The whole way back. It was 50-55 degrees, which wasn't bad, but I only had a winter thermal top, muscle shirt and shorts. No rain gear, as it wasn't supposed to rain today as of the 7am forecast.…


How I paid off a college loan in less than one year

Be part of the original discussion here

I want to preface this by saying the best way to save on your college loan is to not go to college! It is a personal choice, but if your career aspirations require a diploma or you just want the "college experience," follow these steps...

pyrus pyrifolia aka apple pear: a must try

Posted on September 26, 2011 at 1:37am 1 Comment

i just ate a pear that had striking characteristics of an apple. it was like a pear tree got busy with an apple tree and made pure deliciousness. the pear had all the juiciness a pear normally has, only instead of dripping everywhere when bitten into, it - almost impossibly - holds in all that moisture until one starts chewing. then the mouth becomes flooded with pure pyrus pyummyia juice!! making it even more delectable is the crispness - like biting into an apple! the peel is a bit rough, so… Continue
