Site Guide

For beginners wanting the ins and out of my methods, or long-time readers who may have missed a hidden gem or two, I wrote a site guide. This will provide a coherent overview of essential reading as it relates to intermittent fasting, nutrition and good training practices. Let me know if you think something’s missing. Dec 14th: […]

Welcome to the new and improved Leangains! The move from Blogger to WordPress has been a long time coming. Now that it’s done, I’ve a hard time explaining why it took so damn long. Guess one of my many shortcomings is trying to do everything myself, and that means some things never get done. Or take […]

Supp Guide

Wrote this in 2010. 7 years later, what’s different? Not much. My recommendations and personal usage remain the same with one caveat. As far as fat burners go, there’s nothing legal left worth buying ‘cept caffeine pills. Back in the day, you could still buy some pretty  hardcore/grey zone thermogenics on bodybuilding.com, but those are […]

Default Client Img

Happy Holidays everyone! I’ve started taking clients again and figured that it was time for another client update. Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in my help. Bear in mind that I have a waiting list. In many cases, the pictures are too small to do the clients justice, so give them a […]

Updated October 25th After last month’s scientific debacle, there’s finally a good study on intermittent fasting and lifting. This one comes from Italy and also involves Grant Tinsley, but the change in scenery and colleagues must have done wonders for the man, because this is truly a huge bump in quality compared to his last publication. […]

I have been waiting since 2006 to find out. My body is ready.  The title of the study is Time-restricted feeding in young men performing resistance training: A randomized controlled trial. I previously mentioned it in Intermittent Fasting: Where Are We Now? and now that the paper […]

It’s been a good while since I last wrote about intermittent fasting. I guess largely because there’s only so much to say about the topic and because I feel like I’ve said most of it. Unless you’re going to make inferences based on animal studies, there’s only so much you can extrapolate from the human experience […]

Deadlifting Update and Competition Live Stream

Since the last post I wrote, I’ve acquired a much better understanding of barbells and their impact on lifting performance. For the advanced lifter, the barbell will either make or break your deadlifting experience, as I found out in my case. About a month ago, my gym obtained two Eleiko barbells; one standard training bar […]

Long time, no see. I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my training in the last year, trying to make something of it. In most cases, my training had shortcomings that were easily identifiable and fixed. While there’s nothing easy about training hard and consistently, there’s usually a reassurance present throughout the process; what […]
