clearing up the mess in fitness

How I healed myself of life long debilitating brain fog and gut issues

40 years of misinformation

The last 40 years in the fitness industry has been a complete mess of fad diets, random supplement suggestions and insanely over complicated workout routines. For years, self proclaimed experts and influencers have been sharing their take on how exactly they got in shape and maybe even got a bunch of their clients in shape using the same methods.

However, most people fail to realize that a lot of these influencers have very unique genetics and have a physique that is most likely not attainable for most of the public to achieve.

Physiques like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronnie Coleman for example are extremely rare and cannot be achieved by the average male.

You could follow the same diet, supplement routine, steroid use, exercise regimen and you will never achieve the same level of muscle mass these men produced, while also staying that lean.

influencer problem

So many people out there listen to these influencers and self proclaimed experts,
hanging on every word and following their routines to the T, while not achieving the
same results.

The truth is that most men have the capability to get lean and very ripped but very few have the ability to look like the greats that many of us admire so much.

Most women will also have the ability to get lean with impressive shape but it is very
rare for them to be able to put on significant size.

Most women fear lifting weights because they think they will get bulky with muscle and that is just not true. There are very few women who have the genetics to grow large
muscles and the women who can tend to have higher testosterone levels than the
average woman.

The men that are trying all these crazy supplements, doing very high caloric surplus
diets and insane workout routines are mostly putting on significant amounts of water weight and fat, making them look much bigger, but I assure you they are made up of a lot less muscle than they think.

gaining muscle the right way is not complicated

Gaining muscle the right way is actually very simple and not complicated at all.
Protein is the only macronutrient that allows you to grow muscle and gaining muscle has nothing to do with a caloric surplus diet. Too many bodybuilders have bought into the need to eat a massive caloric surplus and eating every 2 to 4 hours falsehood.

This is not good for you and not necessary whatsoever. All you need to do is meet your protein requirements daily with 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight and up to 60 grams above your body weight maximum if you are looking to build as much muscle mass as possible, the quickest way.

The best way to do this is with an animal based diet because the most bioavailable protein from a food source comes from red meat and eggs.

The fat that is in the meat and eggs is enough and if you have a very physically active job or lifestyle then you can add more fat and get more calories with butter, beef tallow or cheese. Abusing carbohydrates to try and gain mass will only harm your health and gain you a lot of water weight and fat, not muscle.

For every 1 gram of carbs you eat, you will withhold 2 to 3 grams of water. You can do the math on that if you were to eat 300 to 600 grams of carbs a day like
most bodybuilders do.

If you want to eat carbs intelligently then you can eat 0.5 to 0.7 times your body weight in grams right before and right after your workout. That way the carbs will be used in the most efficient way to supply more glucose for your workout and replenish what is expended during the workout.


Resistance Training With Weights

Now getting into the fitness side of things. Your body doesn’t care about how many sets you do or how long you spend working out, trying to move more and burn calories.
Your body cares about heavy resistance and getting to the deepest level of failure
possible to facilitate adaptation.

If you are not giving your body a reason to adapt, it won’t.

This means that using cardio for weight loss is a waste of time and also circuit training routines that go on and on. In order to burn fat, gain muscle and create adaptation you need to do resistance training and you need to do it correctly. If you are going to lift weights, you need to lift heavy, getting between 5 and 12 reps and reaching absolute muscle failure each set. Instead of doing a crazy amount of sets and breaking down muscle tissue, you want to do no more than 3 sets and 3 exercises per muscle group. You will work out each muscle 2 times per week maximum.

If you feel the need to do cardio type work then I would recommend interval training.

This is not typical cardio where you are moving at the same speed for a long period of time. Long form cardio will make you hold onto body fat instead of burning it. You will be burning calories and not body fat. Interval training mimics resistance training and resistance training is what allows you to lose fat and gain muscle.

To do interval training correctly all you need to do is 10 to 20 total minutes, 4 to 6 days a week. This can be completed on a treadmill, sprinting on the grass, or sand, using an exercise bike, elliptical, stair stepper, row machine, burpees, jump rope or anything along those lines.

You will do 1 minute at 100% effort and then 30 seconds at 50% effort, back and forth until you hit the total time. That’s it!

x3 bar

If you would like to know an even more efficient way to allow your body to burn fat and gain muscle even quicker, while reaching the deepest level of failure and forcing your body through the most intense adaptation possible, then the X3 Bar Home Gym is what you want to be doing.

The X3 Bar allows you to workout each muscle group 3 times per week because you are not breaking down muscle tissue and only giving it the intense stimulus it needs for growth.

Your muscles are able to fully recover within 48 hours so that you can hit them again quickly. This quick recovery is not possible when lifting weights and this is one of the reasons why you will get faster results with X3.

There is the same push and pull day back and forth. You will be working out Monday through Saturday.

Muscle confusion has been a lie in the fitness space for a long time. The muscles don’t care about being confused, they care about how much weight you are lifting and how deep the level of failure is you are taking them to.

There are 5 exercises to complete on push day and 4 to complete on pull day.

You will be doing only one set to full failure on each exercise. You must be able to complete at least 15 full reps and then diminish into the mid range and small range of motion until you reach complete muscle fatigue.

You will also do no more than 40 full reps and if you do, then you are ready to move up to the next level band.

So the target is between 15 and 40 full reps in that one set. If you can’t get at least 15 full reps, then you will move down to a lighter band and if you reach more than 40 full reps, then you are ready to move up to the next level heavier band.

Because you are using heavy bands instead of weights there is something called variance. As you pull the bands or press them out, the weight increases and this allows you to lift more weight in your strongest range of motion which is 7 times stronger than your small range of motion.

More reps in your strongest range of motion and going to full failure in all 3 ranges of motion = deeper level of muscle fatigue, release of more growth hormone and testosterone, which allows you to burn fat quicker and gain muscle faster. Yes females will also release more testosterone and that is a good thing.

Weight lifting is static resistance and because the weight stays the same throughout the entire movement you will not be able to fatigue in all three ranges of motion, hence this is one of the reasons you need to do more than one set with weights.

You are not getting to the same degree of muscle fatigue and forcing as much adaptation to happen, so more than one set is required. X3 creates the most intense stimulus to force your body to adapt the quickest. Because of this, working out and getting in shape is easier than most people think.

how i healed myself of life long debilitating brain fog and gut issues

For the majority of my life I ate a full variety of all real foods and excluded processed and fast foods. I ate much better than most of the population and my family always made a conscious effort to do so.

When I was in the 1st grade I developed severe brain fog, ADHD, and a mild form of turrets. School was the most challenging time of my life. I frustrated my teachers to no end with my inability to comprehend anything they were teaching me. This of course led to many after school meetings between teachers and my parents.

They went on and on with how frustrating and difficult I was to have as a student and demanded I get some professional help. They recommended I take medications such as ritalin or adderall to help me calm down and focus but my parents would not allow that. I was put into after school tutoring multiple days a week and while this definitely helped with getting the extra assistance I needed, it still wasn’t enough and I continued to struggle immensely all throughout school.

Hearing this information about myself at such a young age definitely left a mark on my self confidence. I became very introverted and shy as this carried on into my high school years. School continued to challenge me in such a way that I was brought to tears nearly every week while doing homework and experienced mental breakdowns where I would physically hit myself.

I was beyond frustrated that my brain did not seem to work and I couldn’t comprehend the lessons in class. I felt stupid, worthless, isolated and life felt like it had nothing good in store for me. Because of the work ethic my parents instilled in me and their constant support, I was fortunately able to get through school with a 3.0 gpa average.

I worked 10 times harder than my classmates in order to do this, while so many of them would not even complete their homework or study for tests and still get a better grade than me on most assignments and tests.

My health issues however did not stop there. I began having digestive issues, bloating, gas, stomach pains and lymph node swelling throughout my entire body. My high school and college years were filled with constant social anxiety and random nervousness. Getting singled out in class was the scariest experience for me, as my face would turn bright red, wishing I had self confidence. Anytime I had to go up in front of the class for a presentation or a project it felt like torture.

After high school I started to experience severe lower back pain that was so debilitating at times I could hardly walk. Depression began to come and go into my mid to late 20’s as I felt my outlook on life was poisoned. My nervous system would rarely let me be in complete peace and my emotions were constantly all over the place. In one moment I would be on top of the world with complete joy and then the next I would feel as low as lows get.

On top of all that I was constantly told throughout my life that I was too skinny,
so I began weight lifting to try and compensate. I tried a vegetarian diet for 1 to 2 years and then an omnivore diet, including grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, vegetables, fruit, meat, and eggs up until May of 2020. I did the typical bodybuilding diet, high carb, eating every 2 to 4 hours consuming 5000
to 7000 calories per day.

Force feeding myself this much food only made my health issues worse, but I thought hey, at least I’m bigger now so I can take one insecurity off the list. I thought I was eating as clean as I possibly could avoiding processed, fast foods, energy drinks, soda, candy, desserts and seed oils. Since I thought my diet was as clean as it could possibly be, I figured I was just going to have to live with my health issues for the rest of my life and I had up until this point, so I accepted it.

In my late twenties I ended up meeting a man that completely changed my life around forever.

His name is Dr. John Jaquish. John showed me something called the X3 Bar system, a new and revolutionary way to lift heavy weight without the consequences of damaging joints and spending hours per week in the gym. I started working out with the X3 Bar immediately and I was blown away how fast I was gaining muscle and my joint pain completely disappeared in my knees, elbows and low back within months.

He also showed me something called the carnivore diet and said it would be amazing to pair with the new workout system. I thought he was crazy for suggesting a diet of only animal foods because I believed what everyone else was taught that red meat is bad and causes heart disease and clogs arteries. This created a lot of curiosity in me so I researched everything there was to know about the carnivore diet and I started it within weeks.

Within 2 months my brain fog had completely vanished for the first time in my
life and I could think clearly. My emotions were consistent, my nervous system was balanced and I started to have more self confidence and became less socially anxious. My joints were no longer in pain, my stomach felt more peace than it had ever in my life. I no longer had stomach pain, gas, bloating and my bowel movements became regular and comfortable.

Finally in my late 20’s, I learned how to eat properly for myself. I took out the following foods including – sugar, soy, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, vegetable and seed oils and started eating out less. Now I eat a completely nose to tail animal based diet from 100% grass fed, pasture raised, hormone and antibiotic free cows, bison and wild game.

From time to time I eat organic chicken, turkey, lamb and pork. I also use clean salt, local raw unfiltered honey before and after my workouts, corn and soy free pasture raised eggs, raw, unpasteurized butter, cheese and milk, also fruits and berries occasionally. Now I feel beyond AMAZING! Every issue vanished rapidly and I am beginning to put on significant muscle mass. I have complete confidence in myself for the first time in my life, along with no more social anxiety or acute nervousness.

My brain fog has completely lifted and my cognitive function increases daily. I have a new beginning in life and have become passionate about helping others discover their full potential. Diet, lifestyle and exercise is everything guys, let’s do this!

If you feel like you are not living your life to the fullest and thriving as much as you possibly can with your health and body composition, I would love to be your coach and help change your life forever.
