The purpose of this site is to document the diet, training and motivation required to build natural strength and size.
The above picture is of me, Pete Stables.
I was 29 years old, 6ft 1 and about 176 pounds.
Check out the big smile on my face! This was largely due to the fact that I had climbed (ok, taken the cable car) to the top of a mountain and removed my t-shirt for a shot that would hopefully induce some facebook-style envy when it appeared as my new profile picture.
Many guys and girls think having sub 10% bodyfat will fill a void in their lives and make them happy/popular/successful and more. But I wasn't happy. I was hungry all the time, which made me miserable around friends and family. And I was weak. Really weak.
Who cares if you have a washboard stomach when you have to get your wife to open a jar of gherkins for you? And let's face it, when you have your t-shirt on, you look like every other skinny guy out there anyway! I don't know about you, but I want to look strong with a t-shirt on. And what's more, I want to BE strong.
