Alright! I have always been a fan of CBC's programming and podcasts. This video is awesome and packed with lot of information on sugar and it's effects on human body. It's an eye-opener!

I was listening to a podcast (can't remember which one!) couple of weeks ago and the host mentioned about this guy Dr. Layne Norton who's a natural bodybuilder & powerlifter. I googled him and found to be interesting. Dr. Layne has his own podcast and it's bloody brilliant. Occasionally, he rants on the rads and fads of the fitness/health/nutrition industry but I think his rant has more credibility from a scientific perspective because Dr. Layne is a scientist/researcher himself.

Do check his podcast out. Link below:

Something I'd like to try in my next workout.

Alright everybody, I have been using Mehdi's Stronglifts 5x5 program for the past couple of weeks and these are the stats as of today (8th Dec 2014):

Squat 5x5 - 50kg (I never thought I would be able to hit that on free weights. I felt really good!)

Overhead Press 5x5 - 27.5kg

Deadlift 1x5 - 75kg (It's brilliant! Next week, I will be deadlifting my bodyweight i.e. 80kg.)

I'm thinking of posting my stats every weekend just to get keep track of my training and to make myself accountable.

So, how's everyone training?

You know those body transformation photos? Yeah, they are deceptive more than you may think.

This article explains how exercise affects the brain (makes us happier). And how regular exercise can help us grow in other areas of life. Something I experienced myself with keeping regular with strength training last year. Sadly, it has been 3 months since I've worked out due to multiple injuries and I can definitely say I notice a huge difference in general mood. I miss the character and well being benefits of feeling and being strong!
