All You Need is Discipline… and Drugs

There are a lot of physique competitors online posting motivational quotes over their own photos, offering coaching, and sharing advice for staying in shape.

Many of these competitors are ripped beyond belief – men and women alike – with striated glutes, deeply cut six packs, delts that balloon out and taper like Q-tips on top of their arms… you know the deal.

These people look neat. They’re remarkable.

But their appearance is often less like the fit guy or girl next door and more like a caricature. Definitely not something you can achieve via training and nutrition alone.

Yet these are the folks who often have the most to say about motivation and discipline.

They’ll tell you that if you’re as disciplined as they are, or if you have the same work ethic, or if you sign up with them, you too can achieve the look that they’ve gotten.

And that’s where I get a little pissed.

Stop It With the Sermons

User

I get that athletes use performance enhancing drugs. That’s just the nature of modern sports, whether we like it or not.

So throwing a fit over the people who get caught using drugs is silly. Your favorite “drug-free” athlete, well, probably isn’t. And I can only imagine the pressure that professional athletes face in order to succeed and stay relevant.

So drug use itself doesn’t really burn my cookies.

What does is when those who are obviously using get preachy and lecture us mere mortals about how to do things “the right way” in order to become more muscular or lean like them.

“All you need is discipline! And my diet and training program! I can show you how to eat, train, and look like me!” – Online coaches whose medicine cabinets are stocked like a Tijuana pharmacy.

The truth is, them telling us how to get shredded and jacked is kind of like a thief telling us how to get rich.

I don’t plan on making gains or losing fat that way, and if you’re a lifetime natural lifter, neither do you.

Defying Genetics

Triceps

Weight training doesn’t defy genetics. It makes the most of them.

It allows you to capitalize on your strengths. And it enables you to improve even your weakest links. But it won’t ever do what drugs can do.

If you use them and your clients don’t, your choices have invalidated a lot of your advice – especially from an aesthetic perspective.

Why? Because building muscle and training hard while using anavar, winstrol, dbol, or whatever, does defy genetics. It shits all over genetics.

And it makes all the difference in the world for those who’ve “made it.”

Chances are, with competition being what it is, you, dear steroid user, likely wouldn’t have made it without the “extra assistance.” And sadly, since many competitors go through it like candy, you may not even be “making it” now.

There’s just more competition out there. There’s a growing community of selfie-obsessed bodybuilding fanatics who are juicing up, posing for Instagram, and begging for clients to coach.

And you don’t have a grasp anymore on what it’s like to see your body day after day with minimal (yet realistic) progress. You didn’t take the slow path. How can you relate to those who do?

There are plenty of people who aren’t using drugs that have sound nutrition and training advice, but they don’t sell the pipe dream that you dangle in front of naive clients and inexperienced lifters.

Dear Steroid User

Female BB

Think back to when you were a natural lifter.

Go back to when you were last working your ass off without drugs – maybe you were still seeing progress here and there, but nothing over-the-top dramatic. Go back to that place and pretend like you chose to stay on the natural path.

Are you there?

Okay, now tell us about discipline.

Now tell us how we can make the most of our genetic potential.

Now tell us how to stay motivated.

Because get this: It’s easier to be motivated when you’re making massive progress. And it’s easier to make massive progress when your medicine cabinet is stocked with substances that allow you to bypass natural limitations.

Bottom line? You took an easier route – though you won’t ever admit that. And you didn’t make the most of your genetics; you escaped them.

If you’re a veiny chick with striated glutes, single digit body fat, deep feathered quads, and hard cut triceps, then I have to roll my eyes when I see your sorry motivational quotes.

Lifting itself wasn’t enough motivation for you. Nor was healthy eating.

You can teach us about technique, you can show us how you program workouts, but when it comes to motivation, you’re completely out of touch.

But go ahead. Publicize your online coaching and gain some recognition.

Caption your social media photos with more of those 5,000-word dissertations for the starry-eyed girls and star-struck younger guys who think they’ll look like you if they just attain your level of “dedication” and your ability to “trust the process,” “follow your dreams,” “live your true passion,” and “never give up!”

They’ll figure it out eventually. And maybe they’ll even choose to become the fit looking guy or girl next door instead of another internet-famous caricature.

The rest of us? We can motivate ourselves.

Ok I don’t know if I’m going crazy or what but I thing I just saw “LADY GAGA” in “BEYONCE’S” “HAUNTED” music video!!!

Gaga mentioned on twitter this…

Beyoncé filmed her new music video for ‘Haunted’ at the same mansion where Lady Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ was filmed at.

Love thy neighbor as yourself. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Do not covet thy neighbor’s ass. These are the ethical foundations of any good swinger’s lifestyle.

If you like Jesus, pumping iron and pumping/getting pumped by acquaintances bound by holy matrimony, there’s a website just for you.

It’s called Fitness Swingers, and it’s the brainchild of Cristy Parave and her husband, Dean, who dreamed up the site after reportedly having a threesome with this wife and her female friend. Apparently, the sex was just heavenly.

 

The Florida couple, who met at a bodybuilding competition, are interested in sharing their beliefs and their spouses with others who feel similarly. They started their online network 7 years ago, and haven’t looked back. The pillars of their relationship: A commitment to their faith, to fitness, and to the ideals of the swinger lifestyle.

Dean Parave told Barcroft Media that he doesn’t think that his swinger lifestyle conflicts with his Christian beliefs. In fact, he considers it a kind of ministry.

“So far today, God hasn’t told me, ‘Dean stop that, it’s a sin. I don’t want you to do that.’ Until he does that, I’m going to keep trying to help as many people as I can,” he told Barcroft.

Christy said she needed a little convincing that it was moral at first, but now she’s totally convinced that god is on their side.

“God put people on the Earth to breed and enjoy each other,” she told Barcroft. “I feel God is always with me and he has put us here for a reason.”

Their daughter told the outlet that she thinks that helping run her parents’ website is definitely “different.”

PASTORS AND GAYS

September 4, 2014

Lately I’ve been seeing stories in the social media that reads about pastors speaking about being gay, some say as Pastor Fred Phelps, head of the Westboro Baptist Church, “God says gays must be put to death” and Brainerd Baptist Church Senior Pastor Rubby Gallaty, but the list goes on and on,

what really bothers me about this whole thing is that these people are just SPREADING HATE, if I’m not wrong God says “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” and not hate thy neighbour.

What I highly believe is that all these pastors should be taking care of “real problems” in their communities, helping the ones in need. People reach out to God because they need him.

Everybody believes in something, I personally from a very early age was interested in religion and the origin of it all. I asked myself why there is so many if there is only ONE God, so after many years I came to the conclusion that God is really inside ourselves and we really need to believe to move forward.

Also I’ve experienced many different things in relation to different religions that make me sad, like when you are seated in church listening to the pastor and he’s telling you that he knows you don’t have money for the rent, but if you give the money that you have to God (HIS CHURCH) the money will reproduce, while projecting it on a massive screens next to him on stage while wearing designer clothes from head to toe.

This makes me so sad, that someone is taking advantage of all these people that really need a helping hand, all these people that need moral support, all these people that don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’ve seen articles that speak about economic slumps producing more churchgoers, “When the business cycle goes up, religious attendance goes down, and vice versa. The good mystery is why.” to me it’s not mystery, it is common sense that people need to believe that things will get better.

I’m not trying to say any negative stuff about any type of religion and I’m a believer that we do need to believe. But when you have all these pastors spreading all this hate it makes me mad and I really need to express my feelings. I’m sure there are other people that feel like I do.

I’m an openly gay guy, I have been happily married to my husband for almost a year, I have a regular job, I pay my taxes and I’m tired of these pastors spreading hate!

Have a great day GOD BLESS!

Today Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia, appointed by Republican Governor Jeb Bush, ruled against Florida’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, making the Sunshine State the latest to see such a ban struck down in court since the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its historic marriage rulings last June.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Blame it on the World Cup. That’s what Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is doing to explain why airlines are slashing flights to the crisis-plagued South American nation.

314ad43d0405ef14540f6a706700c785

Alitalia and Panama’s Copa Airlines this month became the latest carriers to cut flights to Caracas over the socialist government’s refusal to allow them to repatriate proceeds from ticket sales inside Venezuela. Foreign airlines say they have the equivalent of $4 billion trapped in the country when sales are converted at the official exchange rate of 6.3 bolivars per U.S. dollar.

Maduro, who previously has threatened to punish airlines that leave the country, said Thursday that “bourgeois” news media opposed to his government are spreading lies about airlines’ reasons for suspending flights.

Echoing comments a day earlier by Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez, Maduro said carriers aren’t abandoning Venezuela but rather are temporarily adjusting flight schedules to meet demand for flights to carry soccer fans to Brazil for the World Cup tournament beginning next month.

“Some European airlines have reprogrammed their flights during the World Cup,” Maduro said on state television from an airport in the state of Apure, where he was inaugurating a new domestic air connection with the capital. “They’re diverting flights to Brazil.”

2014-05-10T180010Z_1_CBREA491E0G00_RTROPTP_2_CNEWS-US-VENEZUELA-PROTESTS

Air Canada, TAP of Portugal and Avianca of Colombia are among other airlines that have reduced flights to Venezuela in recent months, citing the repatriation problems spurred by a shortage of U.S. dollars. Several U.S. carriers have restricted ticket sales, making it difficult to find seats on remaining flights out of the country.

It’s not just airlines facing problems in Venezuela. Food processors, pharmaceutical companies and carmakers are also having difficulty obtaining dollars from the government’s tightly managed currency system, leading to shortages of everything from toilet paper to car parts. The supply restrictions are putting pressure on prices, which have skyrocketed more than 50 percent over the past year.

10 Reasons Why Having Sex Is Good For Your Health

(As the article below mentions my name, I got it from Google Alerts. It was written by by Parul Tyagi and published in EzineArticles I do believe that the writer is going too far (in my opinion, sex is good because it is good) but I decided to republish it here…By the way, I also believe the writer or the article is quite optimistic in saying that we can have a 2-3 min orgasm. It never happened to me… )
Paulo Coelho’s book titled “Eleven Minutes” suggests that the “act of coming together” just takes about 2-3 minutes, while the remaining 9 minutes are no more than an attempt to reach the “crescendo” when a hormonal discharge provides ecstasy like none other!

Scientists have often debated that sex is extremely beneficial for our health, but the lack of sex in good measures can have negative effects. On the other hand, too much sex can also be harmful; if you indulge in sex for more than 3 times a week, you are exposing yourself to the risk of a weaker immune system as well as vulnerability to infections…

1. The balance of your mental and emotional health is definitely influenced by sex. While abstinence often leads to anxiety or paranoia and even depression…having sex can cure cases of light depressions. After having exercised sex, the brain releases endorphins that decrease stress and induce a wonderful state of euphoria.

2. For all you women, having regular sex means freedom from expensive salon treatments. An excellent beauty treatment, having sex actually doubles the level of estrogen in women and makes their hair shine with brilliance while making their skin supple and softer.

3. And if you want to live longer, then look no further than your own bedroom. According to a research carried out at Queens University in Belfast, Ireland, having regular sex increases the lifespan in humans. It was found that out of the people of the same age and health, those who had more frequent orgasms faced 50% less death rate than who people who didn’t have frequent orgasms.

4. Sex is an excellent deep-cleansing treatment as well. Since sex is a strenuous but enjoyable exercise, when you have sex the pores of your skin are cleansed leaving a brighter and glowing skin as well as decreasing the risk of developing dermatitis.

5. An inexpensive and pleasurable exercise, sex can make you lose weight. When you have sex after a candlelight romantic dinner, not only do you burn all the fat and carbohydrates you consumed, but you also stay healthy at no extra cost! Consider this: A single session of passionate, mind-blowing sex (even regular sex) can burn about 200 calories. This is equivalent to running for 15 minutes on a treadmill!

6. Ladies, if you like you man to have bulging biceps then have sex more often. Sex is a great way to strengthen muscles. Imagine the effort made by your man through those difficult pushes and flexions! Of course, it all depends on the stunts in your bed…but it’s definitely better than running for miles on miles.

7. The more active your sex life, the more attractive and irresistible you become for the opposite sex. Really! An active sex life means that your body gets into the habit of releasing more pheromones, chemicals that attract all those gorgeous, luscious women! No wonder Casanova was so popular!

8. Sex can sharpen your senses; especially enhance your sense of smell. After sex, prolactin is released that activates the stem cells in the brain to form new neurons in the olfactory bulb. This helps to improve your sense of smell.

9. A pain reliever, sex is TEN times more effective than painkillers such as Valium. Just before orgasm, the hormone oxytocin’s level rises almost 5 times, leading to release of large amount of endorphins. Endorphins are natural painkillers and relieve you of pain, minor headaches, and migraines without any after effects. Next time your lady has a headache, treat her with a vigorous session of lovemaking rather than a Valium.

10. The act of Kissing stimulates salivation, which helps clean food particles stuck between the teeth and lowers the acidity level in your mouth. This is the primary cause of tooth decay. So kiss all you want, after all it’s a great excuse!

So my dear friends, sex is not just good for the mind, the body, but the wallet as well!
