4.28.13 MWOD

Rest Day (Physical)
SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY. Today’s physical prescription: do nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Squat*.

Go to church, sit in front of the tv all day, or just snapchat your friends close up shots of your traps. I recommend enhancing this shot by drawing some climbers on said trap(s) as if they’re scaling Mount Everest (which for me they pretty much are).

*Not actual squats

MWOD (Mental Workout Of the Day)

I recently stumbled onto the YouTube channel of Dr. Layne Norton, a:

  • Pro natural bodybuilder
  • Powerlifter who has achieved an Elite ‘Raw’ total classification (617 lb squat, 386 lb bench press, 700lb deadlift in 220lb class)
  • Nutritional Sciences PHD who did his dissertation on the relation of meal frequency to muscle protein synthesis (aka does eating more/less often affect muscle gain)

So far, he is the most credible, unbiased source I’ve found on the Internet (let me know in the comments if there is anyone else I should be following). Below is a great video where he debunks a lot of common myths surrounding protein:

  1. Thanks for sharing the info on Layne. I had not heard of him before. Anything a PhD with a 700 pound deadlift says is Truth! I’m aiming for a 500 pound deadlift with a CCNP. 15 more pounds!

    • No problem, man, yeah his youtube channel is full of some pretty awesome information. Very self aware guy, very genuine. I was surprised he wasn’t more well known!
