I am so lucky and fortunate to have two articles published in Mark’s Daily Apple in the last month. I am very grateful to Mark’s editorial staff as they were very supportive, gracious to helping me put out the best product ever. Aaron at Primal publishing – thank you from the bottom of my heart. You and Mark really have opened the door for me. I am forever grateful.

I used to waste hundreds of dollars per month on this stuff.
Last week I did a real rough WOD with a good friend of mine. It was AMRAP that consisted of heavy deadlifts and box jumps so you knew the WOD was no joke. It wasn’t even halfway during the workout, when we were both on our back, drenched in sweat, wondering how we were going to get through this bitch of a workout.
