Study: Bodybuilders That Died Prematurely of Heart Related Issues

Honestly, it’s a bit of an exaggeration to call this a study, but that’s what the authors claim in their abstract. In short, the authors did a google search for dead bodybuilders and then filtered it down using parameters such as being no more than 50-years old and dying of heart-related issues within the last 12 years. Initially they found 45 American bodybuilders and then identified a total of 14 that fitted within their …

A Quick Look at the Fitness & Bodybuilding Pseudo/Bro-Science, Week 51

If you’re new to me and my website, I worked daily in the Fitness-, Bodybuilding-, Gym-, and Competitive Sports industry for almost 22-years with nutrition, supplementation, and training — and was involved in it for a total of more than 26 years. Most of that time, I too was trapped in the pseudo-science of “nutrition science” and was fooled by the synthetic toxic crap of the pharmaceutical and supplement industry. My outlook and understanding …

Bodysuits and Muscle Suits – What is Possible and What is Not

We know that facial masks and bodysuits have been used both in movies, on TV, and by crisis actors for at least 30+ years. As for bodysuits, in the past, they were quite rudimentary and only used with clothes on to make the impression of someone being bigger, bulky and/or fat. As they got better and more realistic, they began to show some more skin, and for the last couple of years muscle bodysuits …

Fat Loss Made Simple – Forget About Calories and Cardio

In October 2006, almost 16 years ago, I wrote an extremely controversial, yet very important article called ‘Cardio Sucks’ for the Swedish leading Bodybuilding and Fitness Magazine ‘Body.’ It actually did some impact on clueless athletes and coaches here in Sweden, but in the big scenario of things, not much has changed since I wrote that and countless of other articles on similar topics. I still see people focusing on the completely wrong things, …

Weight Gain and Why Some Pack on the Pounds While Others Struggle

As a former trainer, coach, and body transformation specialist, I’ve covered this subject many times when talking with clients and answering questions online. The topic resurfaced at our Community Forums at Ungovernable, so I decided to write this article to cover all the basics and to put some myths and bro-science to rest. The first excuse, or “explanation” you hear, is about your metabolism. You know, “I eat a lot but have a high …

I’ve written more 500 articles within the fitness and health field, managed several magazines, worked with the Talent Hunt project for five years and also trained, coached and worked with hundreds of top athletes from 1997 to 2016. In other words, …

August 7, 2021. Fasting update – 117 hours, 42 minutes

I started on Monday, at about 10am, and broke the fast today, Saturday morning at 7.42am. That’s 4 days and almost 22 hours.The reason I didn’t go a full 5 days or more was simply that I wanted to hit the gym again, and I felt I needed something as a pre-workout. So, I ended the fast with a tablespoon of fish roe, followed by a small 40-gram whey shake and some rice cakes. …

August 18, 2020. Training and goals update

If anyone is interested in what I’m currently doing, here’s a short update for you. In early February, when I got back to the gym after more than three years mostly off from training due to my illnesses, I weighted a measly 62 kg (136 lbs.) Fortunately, I’m used to be between 74 and 78 kg, and due to muscle memory I hit 80 kg (175 lbs.) in late July. Starting August, I’ve been …
