WE WRITE & WE TEACH

We write about kitchen things, lifting things & coaching. We talk with Starting Strength, Art of Manliness, Barbell Logic and 40fit. We are teachable and we teach. We have studied not-so-secret health secrets, tried all the fads and we didn’t get married to any. We developed The Nutrition Linear Progression based on forming habits instead of “dieting”. Read, Listen, Comment & Connect.
