Welcome to my best posts section where you can find every “golden” post I’ve written (I will actually update this page as I get more “honey” out on the “window”).
I have lots of posts on my website so it’s quite hard for me to chose the best of them but I decided to do the hard work for you and organize my best content around.
Just scroll down and chose the best topics that interest you and of course, enjoy reading them!
If you are not familiar with some general myths that are circulating on most common health and fitness blogs, forums and other platforms, here are some myths that are potentially dangerous if you still believe them as genuine.
I would advise you to read every one of them. Why?
You will discover that most of what media is telling you, is completely bogus and potentially harmful.
Here are the links to my best myth discovering posts:

You can find countless training programs on the internet, magazines or by asking people around you. But what will guarantee that you won’t waste time and effort by doing that program?
If you didn’t know by now, people looking at their best and being on steroids are way better than me or you in every physical aspect you can think of: they are faster, stronger, better. This is one of the reason why they can stay 3-4 hours in the gym and lift like crazy and still have plenty of energy to carry on the day as nothing has happened.
So what? You ask me?
Well, most of the programs we can find on the internet are typical steroid user weight training routines that are not suitable for a natural body like yours or mine. They are probably overkill for most of us and not optimized for what our body can do, hypertrophy wise. This is why there are people training for years on these kind of programs and still look like a beginner.
I made a top of the best training programs that are proven to work time after time (I also used them).
The three main lifts are the barbell squat, the good ol’ bench press and let’s not forget the deadlift.
Learning to do these moves the right way is a crucial step in every lifter’s TO DO list!
It is commonly said that these three moves can get a lifter strong, fit and proportionate even if they are the only moves you will ever do.

The supplement industry and most fat loss/muscle gaining guru’s, are promoting everything that hits the market and believe me, I see them coming out daily!
The “new and improved ubber bullshit formula that will help you pack on muscle mass faster” <- utter crap.
You can simply get ahead of these scammers by reading their supplement label.
If you see the words: “secret”, “formula”, “cutting edge” or other “blah blah” words just like these, you can pretty much 100% skip it.
The only supplements you will ever need and that are proven to work are the following:
- A protein powder
- A recovery/general enhancement supplement (based on caffeine or creatine)
- A general health supplement (multivitamins, fish oild, etc.)
- OPTIONAL: Pre Workout Supplements
Bellow, you can learn the right way to supplement your body (and you will be surprised how few supplements you really need – and even those are pretty much optional):
- Top Protein Powders
- Muscle Recovery Supplements
- Vitamins And Minerals Supplements
- Pre Workout Supplements
I felt that I should really make a separate category for these posts because there are so many people looking for this answer and I can’t stand seeing nonsense spread around like flies.
I hope this gets settled once and for all:
Getting your body to a better shape is not a passive thing. It involves constant work, nutrition thinking and also action before getting the body you have dreamed of.
However, a great body is a healthy machine and will also make you a visual beauty for other people around you. Adding to this, you can really motivate other people to get started in the health journey you have taken.
The ability to get better, needs to be constantly trained!

This is also a section that certain “guru’s” or supplement companies try to exploit. These people invariably try to make you believe there’s a better alternative to any kind of food out there and that the other solution is healthier, better, cleaner or whatever you want to call it. Examples of this correlation is: white bread vs whole wheat bread, etc.
For most of the time, when we examine foods that are considered as bad or of low value, with foods that are considered clean or a must in every dieter’s arsenal, the usual trend I observe is that there’s almost no difference between one and the other.
See with your own eyes a close examination of the most common food “wars”:
