Mini Platform

Trying to clear out some wood in the garage I decided to build a mini platform, if you want to call it that. I will be able to use this for deficit deadlifts, as well as rack pulls, and squat lockouts, if I so choose. I'm sure there are other uses but that is what I can come up with right now. Though I don't actually show you how to build it, I think you can figure it out based on the video if you want to make one yourself.

Foods to Eat to Build Muscle on a Budget

Homemade strength requires more than just weight training to accomplish. You also need good food and plenty of rest. So today I'll cover the second part of the equation: food. Specifically, food when you're on a budget. What should you eat if you're on a budget but still want to build a lot of strength and muscle? The common impression is that as a weightlifter you have to eat like a bazillion grams of protein and $50 worth of supplements pre, post, and peri-workout a day, but that doesn't mean it's true.

EFS Lever Belt Review

I've been wanting to do this review for a while and finally sat done and got it done. When Elite Fitness first started carrying this belt it was on sale. I believe it ended up being less  than $40 shipped to my house. Even so, I'm going to pull no punches. That's cheap for a belt but it's  not that cheap. Even though this is half the price of most belts I was expecting  more. In hindsight I should have just gone with a normal priced belt from Inzer or BestBelts or some  place like that. Read on for the full review.
