The topic of soy keeps coming up in my life. Now, if you’ve spent any extended period of time with me, you’re familiar with the fact that soy is dangerous & should be avoided – always.
If you’re not familiar, let me game you up real quick.
First of all, the majority of soy made available to us unless otherwise noted has been genetically modified – Frankenfood. Not good (population control – another talk for another day)
Ok, so you buy organic soy. Imma burst your bubble too. Â Soy is extremely high is Omega 6 fatty acids which are essential yes, but they cause excessive inflammation and this is not good. If you have excessive inflammation it will be much harder for you to recover from injuries.
I’m not done yet.
Soy also converts into a form of estrogen upon ingestion, so fellas I’d avoid this like the plague unless having bitch tits is something your into. Still on this estrogen thing, if you are giving your kids a bunch of soy and soy products you’re basically feeding them a high dose of birth control – good job.
On another note I lost about 6 pounds since last week but have gained .25 of an inch on my neck & arms and have lost a pant size. My training hasnt been drastically different, but I did add 1.5-3 extra hours of sleep per night.
I’ve been slacking on my eating lately. I’m definitely not taking in enough protien or carbs for that matter for the amount of cardio I’ve been doing. Oh well, still training hard & dinking plenty of water. I haven’t gained any weight which really isnt a bad thing. This AC separation has been lingering, nonetheless I put it down in the gym this week!
Check out my muscle blasting routine below. This routine has never failed me. It’s an oldie but a goodie from my ” training black book.”

Workout Playlist 8
Don’t hesitate to ask any questions about this weeks training. I encourage you to follow along and see what you’re able to do.
Grab a small notebook & pen and start tracking your training. People will always hate on this and talk shit about keeping a fitness journal – #%$* them. Let em hate!
They’re just mad that you seem to be just starting out, yet have a better grip on your own fitness & goals – and an idea of exactly how to attain said goals.
Keeping a fitness journal is legit and hella convenient if you ever hit a plateau, get injured, reach a new max et cetera. Why would you not want an accurate reference point pertaining solely to your own results?
Keep training hard,
