Strive for progress, not perfection.
Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.
Been a while. Stay hungry.

I love seeing my own work on my dashboard! Woo!
Huppy Hoolidays, Wolves.
FEAR is merely a lack of FOCUS.
After an unplanned hiatus, enjoy.

Sorry for the lack of posts, champs. I’ve been battling shingles and holidays. More OC soon.
Anonymous asked: Hey Nerdfit, Loving your blog, motivates me on a daily basis. How many hours of sleep should I get a night? Im trying to lose a rather large amount of fat and becuase I study I need to get to the gym at around 5am in the morning. I have to study most of the day and attend school in the day too, how many hours should I be getting? I think the fact that im going low carb, low calorie, and lifting heavy/doing HIIT means I need alot lol. Thanks for the blog bro, you are awsome ;)
Sleep = muscle recovery and (good) hormone production. Sleep deprivation leads to increased levels of cortisol, a hormone responsible for several functions, including your body’s willingness to hold onto fat primarily in the gut section (the “fat-tire”).
Generally speaking rest is a major component to muscle development and weight loss. A solid 8 hour night is prime. For some people that’s a bit much and can “function” on 6 hours, but it’s not prime for the physical goals.
Lastly, thanks for the kudos! PUSH ON, BROTHER.

Weird, and bummer. Meh, it’s not like I’m making money on this, but it is OC straight from my brain.
janczewska asked: HOLY CRAP I am glad I found you. I'm a graphic designer so I must ask - the photos you post with the watermarked URL. Did you design them or are you taking them from other sources? Just curious!
Neato! I’m a designer as well. Why so stoked? :)
I put the URL in there to provide some identity to the artwork and reference the origin of the posts, but the backgrounds aren’t always mine. I do my best to reference the original artist in the post descriptions.
I’ve used pieces from CubaGallery, too.
Stoked you dig the work! Cheers!
Anonymous asked: Just a yea or know anwer. Im compound lifting and eating at a caloric defecit. Willl I lose 50 pounds? My food is healthy (veg/lean meats) and I am just lifting heavy avout 4-5 days a week. Will I lose fat?
Compound lifts are awesome - they burn calories quite a bit too.
Be sure to keep your protein up for repair, lean meats should definitely help with this. Also, be sure your caloric deficit isn’t too great; you’ve gotta fuel yourself.
