Simple ideas:

1. Find a park

First things first — find a local park. The closer to you, the better. If a bit further away, walk a bit more, or drive over.

2. Have fun and be creative!

For example, 1 legged pistol squats with a rock!

  • pistol squats

Or just throw around the rock for fun! Find the heaviest rock in the park, and try to clean and jerk it, military press it, sumo deadlift it, etc.

3. Powerlifting style at the park?

Go for ‘one rep max’ style. The most difficult maneuver you can do. Like muscle ring dips:

Also I am a huuuuge fan of working out on the rings. Lift your legs to workout your abs and back and shoulders better.

4. A fun game

To workout at the park is just plain fun. To be able to yell, grunt, and throw shit around is insanely fun!


My Muscle Philosophy:

Treat your body as sculpture.

This is not my body

The first thing:

I don’t see my body as belonging to me. I look at my body like it belongs to someone else.

When I look at the Lamborghini of someone else, I admire it. When I see the muscles and physiques of anyone else, I admire it. Then I had the epiphany:

Why not transform my own body into a Lambo, and admire my own body instead?

The logic

The great logic:

  1. It is far cheaper to get buff than to buy a Lambo.
  2. The human body is the apex beauty. This means your personal goal in life should be to beautify your own personal body to the maximum (without plastic surgery, steroids, etc).
  3. Ultimate democratic approach: Genetics doesn’t matter. Sex doesn’t matter. Racial ethnicity doesn’t matter. Anyone can both add muscle mass and subtract fat.
  4. It doesn’t cost much to get ripped. Just intermittent fast [no breakfast, no lunch], one big ass meal a day, and mostly a ‘ketogenic’ diet.
  5. Your body is always with you. Why not beautify your body to inspire yourself?

The joy of sculpting your own body

To sculpt your own body is insanely fun. Why? You can see the change over time!

Once again, the goal is simple:

Never stop adding muscle mass, and never stop reducing body fat, or keeping it low (around 10%).

Muscle and your body is highly practical.

The more muscle you have, the more energy you got. The more power you got to make art-work, and live with gratitude, joy, and hyper-vigor.

Strengthen on, and flex on!
