Captain Awesome replied to ShawnC's question:

How long after starting G2F should I start seeing real results?

Maybe give your body a bit of a break? I jumped from Occam's straight into G2F but have since stopped, and am allowing my body a bit of rest. I still keep the basic routine, more or less, and a sh...

Liver for dinner!

I can't stand liver so I take desiccated liver tablets: all of the benefits, none of that lasting taste.

Occam's Changes

Howdy! Can you be more specific about your routine? A common misconception, and one that I fell for myself, was believing that I had to do 7 reps and 7 reps only. Ideally, it is between 7-12, th...

Geek to Freak / Occam's Protocol, What the difference?

Occam's is a stepping stone into Geek to Freak. I'm glad I tried Occam's first, as it gave me an idea of what G2F would be like, minus the intense workouts. It also helps your body adjust to such ...
