The Preverbial Monaday Blues

It’s Monday……..Bleh.  Actually I get amped for Mondays, I run a nutrition store in Laguna Hills CA called Nutrition Zone. I have Sundays off so come Monday i’m ready to get into my store and talk it up with the customers. I’m feeling a little bleh this Monday simply because thre re-paving the parking lot outside my house and somehow it has taken over a week for a job that usually takes 1-2 days, I have to move my car by 7am and that really breaks my balls…it’s all good though i get to start my day early….lift….make a proper breakfast. My weekend was glorious, Saturday was busy and enjoyable. I worked 10-6 at Nutrition Zone, then off to Suzanna’s Birthday Dinner, thn bonfire, then checked out Cindy’d and Kendra’s New place. P.S I starting writing this blog on Monday….hence the title ” The Preverbial Monday Blues”….and then i got slammed with work so it’s now Tuesday….get over it. Sunday was also rad and i just got to rest… is just good for the soul and the mind, literally. Well i don’t have much time today cause i got a lot of work to do. If your in the area swing into Nutrition Zone of Alicia and Paseo De Valencia in Laguna Hills and say whats up…..I’d love to see you. Tune in later week where i will be doing an in depth synopsis on how to properly pwn someone. As many of you know i am the founder of pwn, and master of the universe when it comes to owning people. I’ll take you under my wing  and teach you this ancient dark technique that’s guaranteed to wreck people and score you chicks…..literally proving via a double blind study at the prestigious UCLA.

Fact: I got bit my King cobra  the other day, after 48 of excruciation pain and suffering the Cobra died.

Drink Suggestion: Jameson Whiskey

One shot of Jameson, 1 ounce of water and that’s it…….no ice……..non chilled, just straight up and bad a**, this drink will instantly make you cooler and 7x more attractive to the ladies…..once again….proven…with science. Don’t drink more then 2 or 3 for my suggestions are not for drunkard pleasure but rather taste and appreciation of the finer liquors in life.

By popular request.

I’d like to start off by saying Happy Birthday to the one and only Suzanna Grams!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have been getting hundreds of email and comments asking me  The Guru on what i do to stay in shape and what my max’s are on all my lifts. So by popular demand i’ll be filling you in on a few techniques and supplementation to take you too the next level. First you want to start off with proper diet and exercise. For my diet i keep it pretty strict, i have 6 meals a day and usually keep 3 of those meal as protein shakes. This example diet is mainly for cutting or fat loss, but to making a Mass gaining diet you would simply add larger portions of protein and Complex carbs throughout the day.

Example Day:

serving sizes: 1 protein=size of your flat hand      1 Carb= size of your clinched fist             1 vegetable= unlimited

8:00am Meal 1: 1 protein, 1 carb , 1 vegetable or 6-8 eggwhites, 2 pieces whole wheat toast, and a piece of fruit.

10-11am: Shake 1: 1 scoop of NLN Lean Pro Matrix with 1 scoop NLN glutamine complex in 4-6oz of water.

12-1pm: Meal 2: 1 protein, 1 carb, 1 vegetable or 1 chicken breast, 1 cup of brown rice, and as much veggies as i want

3-4pm: Shake 2: Repeat shake 1

6-7pm: Meal 3: 1 protein, 1 veggie, no carb

9-10pm: Shake 3: Repeat shake 1

You get 1 cheat day a week to literally just eat whatever you want.

Lifting schedule: I break it up like so:

Mon: Legs and ab’s

Tues: Rest

Wed: Chest and ab’s

Thurs: Bi’s, Tri’s and forearm

Fri: Back and Shoulders

Sat: Rest

Sun: Rest

Current Max’s:

Bench: 325lbs x 1

Squat: 225lbs x 15

Bicep barbell: 135lbs x 1

Military Press: 225 lbs x 1

Deadlift: 495lbs x 2

Lat Pulldown: 220lbs x 6

Supplement: Protein-Lean Pro Matrix (Recovery) Glutamine Complex (Recovery), Multi- Body Fuel Natural Selection (Overall Health), Pre-Workouts- Body Fuel Torque (Energy, Mental Focus, and Pumps) , Essential fats- Body Fuel EFA Complete, Intra workout- Scivation Xtend.

Feel free to comment or ask anyquestions and i’ll reply ASAP.

Fact of the Day: The average human can hold there breathe for 45 seconds, i can hold my breathe…..forever.

Beer Recomendation: Willingham and Larsens  HeyFunWeisMan

Brewed by some of the finest brewers to brew on the face of this universe. W & L HeyFunWeisMan pronounced Hey-Fun-Wise-Man is beer that will make you gird your loins while screaming praises. As the weather heats up, the citrusy aromas and sweet aromatic taste truly please the palate. W & L have been somehow brewing for over 100 years and have indubitably mastered the art of brewing and have scrumptulecently mastered the art of the Hef. I highly recommend pouring these bad boys into a tall chilled glass to release maximum flavor. W & L will roughly release the HFWM in June and as W&L always do there will be limited quantity….probably only about 50 bottles. Stay tuned for the release date.

It’s late and i don’t feel like writing to much

Look i’m a little tired because i have had to get up at the crack of dawn throughout the week because there repaving my parking lot this week. It’s kinda lame, but such is life and i live in OC so i really can’t complain because somewhere out there Michael McVerry is going to work far away from beach and any form of happiness. I’ve decided to kill 2 birds with one stone the past few day, i’m a pretty light sleeper and once  i wake up i usually can’t get back to bed so the past few days i have been in the gym bright and early getting bronced(JACKED) out of my mind. I haven’t consistently lifted in years and i’m finally on a good schedule and i’m seeing some good results. Even though i work at a Nutrition Store i don’t take many supplements, this is because i gain muscle really fast but can never drop fat so i mainly focus on the fatburners( I really take them for the energy boost cause i hate coffee) pre workouts and protein. my lifts are continuing to go up and it’s encouraging to be consistent in the gym again. It’s also encouraging to stronger then Mickey V and William Larsen. today i plan to surf bright an ealy before work and i figure since i have to move my car i might s well. Ok this is all for now, i promise the next one will be more insightful and interesting.

Fact: There’s only one thing faster then the speed of light…

Brew recommendation: Joseph Braugh Dunkelweisen, a traditional Amber Hefenweizen i rate this beer an A.

Pours a hazy light brown/tan color with a tan hue, thick biege head, and can’t see the action.
Has a sweet toasted wheat aroma with a hint of banana.
A delicious toasted wheat taste with a banana background and with a mild esters finish.
Light/medium bodied, watery/resin feel, with lively comfortable carbonation.
This is right on par with the other GB Dunkelweizen, so close I’m going to drink the other right now. A steal at $5.99 a  pack at Trader Joe’s

Serving type: bottle

2nd best scene ever

Ah, Tuesdays. So friggin Glorious.

It’s Tuesday, for most people Tuesday is arguably the 2nd worst day of the week behind Mondays of course. I’m actually a fan of Tuesdays, I look forward to them. This is due to 3 reasons, 1) my work schedule is pretty rad, I’m not a 9-5er at all, i would shoot myself in the face with bear mace every day if i had to do the typical grind week in and week out. I rather have a sporadic schedule, my boss lets me pick my hours as long as i’m in Nutrition Zone when it’s busiest (Mon, Tue) so I work Mon, Tue 10-8, off Wed, Thur 10-3, Fri 12-7,  Sat 10-6, and Off Sundays, i love this because i only have a 2 day grind on Mon and Tues. 2) on Tuesdays i meet with my brothers Nate Castro, Johnny Carson and Adam Brown for some good breakfast, good fellowship, and learn more about Jesus in our weekly bible study. 3) I started an event with Bill.I.Am a few months ago called Thee Tuesday Teamsters, it’s are bowling gang and we get together every Tuesday at lake forest lanes for the prestigious and indigenous Quarter Mania. It’s a good time and our group has exponentially grown from 4 to around 15, It’s a fun time that involves 3-5 games of bowling 75 cent slices of pizza, tasty brews, laughter, and wagers on various things that usually end up winning. Needless to say my Tuesdays are my busiest and one of my best days of the week. I Hope all 3 of the people following this blog have a great Tuesday.

I intend to leave you all each time with a few fun facts, a good video, and a recommended drink for you beer connoisseur’s.

P.S I’m on Twitter as of a week ago, I’ve conformed with the masses in the least eloquent of ways, I have no idea why I did it and It’s truly quite boring, all people do is updates, it’s all about following people….it’s actually a little creepy, it’s ultimately the facebook minus the face.  I intend to stick it out and give it a shot and follow some people that i know and appreciate like Mr. McQuade, Matty Morgan (Phenominal Photographer), and William larsen (Billy Burrito).

FUN FACT #1:  The average human body is made out of 70% water, my body is made out of 100% awesomeness

BEER RECCOMENDATION #1: Spring is officially upon us and with her comes glorious weather, longer days, and the animals come out of there hibernation. I like to greet the weather, longer days, and bears with a cool Sam Adams White Ale, brewed by Finnish Dwarves deep in Apalacian Mountains The recipe for the White Ale has been kept a secret by the Finnish Dwarves for a 100 Centuries….mainly because if you come close to them or there beer recipe they snap into a dwarfish rage gnawing everything in site….including humans. Sam Adams reportadly payed the Finnies $ 6 million to have them brew this ancient recipe for Sam Adams to bottle each year. Drink it up while it’s still on the shelves.

What can you expect to learn here.

I have much to teach those who are willing. This site will teach you many things that other’s pay hundreds even thousands of dollars to learn. There will be advise on how to brew tasty beers, advice on how to properly pwn people, advice of proper lifting and dieting techniques, and of course advise on how to give advise. I would like as much feedback as possible, but if it’s at all negative I’ll have to slay you. I’m a tad new to the whole blogging thing, but i think i will destroy all other bloggers who came before me….including Mike McV, and Will.I.Am Larsen for they are weak and predictable where I indubitably keep you on your toes.  Some of my blogs will be funny and random, others will be serious and make you gird your loins. I look forward to preverbially talking to you soon.
