When life gives you shit, make shit-aid.

With respect, this slogan/motto was actually created years ago by the genius Penny Arcade duo. Despite it’s origination, this phrase should realistically promote making the best of what you’ve got.

    Sorry for the lack of posts, champs. I’ve been battling shingles and holidays. More OC soon.

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.

    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. 

    If no artist is provided, it’s likely that I made it. For instance, the “evil twin" and "secretly size up" backgrounds were created by me.

    I’ve used pieces from CubaGallery, too.

    Stoked you dig the work! Cheers!

    Compound lifts are awesome - they burn calories quite a bit too.

    Bottom line: If you’re in a deficit, you should lose fat, yes. There’s a lot to be said on the matter of compound vs cardio vs HIIT, etc though.

    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.
