McDonald’s Must Pay Obese Employee

If you haven't seen the latest fast food lawsuit, it goes something like this... Headline: McDonald's must pay obese employee $17.5K When I read this SF Gate article (link here) I had mixed emotions.  But first.. here's the basics. A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds while working there for a dozen years. He felt he was forced to sample the food to ensure high standards as random people who worked for the company come in and report violations and problems. Not to mention, the company offered free lunches to...

Frank Zane (classic bodybuilder) next to Markus Ruhl (current). TWO SIMPLE QUESTIONS: Which look do you prefer if any? Is there such a thing as too big? Submit your comments in the box below. Marc David “The NoBull Muscle Guy” www.nobullbodybuilding.com P.S. - I don't have the information on who created this photo. But I'd be more than happy to give credit where credit is due.  I just can't find a source.  If there is one, I'll update this post to reflect that fact.

The #1 Difference Between Free and Paid Information. It’s Not Just the Price.

Time and time again I see the discussion about free content, free bodybuilding forums, free meal plans, and how you can learn everything you need to know about building muscle or burning fat without paying a dime. In most cases, people are missing the boat on the most important point. When it comes to free, it’s not the price that's crucial. Most people think if you offer someone a free service, they'll take it because the price is zero, right? Well, not exactly. In the real world, there’s another equally important concept: time.   It can be defined by the number of...

Creatine Causes Roid Rage!?

Do you ever wonder why some people ask the craziest questions about some supplement? Like why they've heard Creatine is a steroid?  Or how come Brand X protein causes a roid rage when taken by somebody male who's young?  Or that high protein diets CAUSE kidney stones. The answer is quite obvious. Consumers for the most part, put forth very little effort into supplement research. To complicate matters, they don't even know where to begin to do any research.  Most people get advice about supplements from 3 places:

When Bodybuilding and Steroids Go Wrong

At some point, you've probably read or heard about A-Rod, or Alex Rodriguez admitting to steroid use.  The story can be summed up as... "On Monday in an ESPN interview, Rodriguez copped to using steroids while with the Texas Rangers. He said the pressure to prove he was worth the Texas-sized $252 million contract forced him to use steroids." But it's not a shocker to see professional athletes using steroids.  Is it?  If it's so illegal why hasn't Mr. Olympia been shut down?  Nobody is shocked at those shows.  But I'm getting ahead of myself. Here, from the business records of a...

Don’t Lie About Improving Your Sex Life!

Smiling Bob Gets a 25 Year Jail Sentence While I'm not a fan of lying, cheating or scamming in any way when it comes to supplements, I'm always intrigued that the playing field isn't level. It's perfectly fine to make up some new Creatine molecule structure (CE3)or tell people they can gain 20 lbs of solid muscle in 4 weeks using this product.  Or maybe that a new weight loss supplement taps into your body and burns fat without changing your diet or increasing exercise. In a nutshell... Message here is that it's bad enough if you lie about your products potential for weight...

Do you wish you could build muscle quickly without having to put in the hard work?  Are you short on time but want the results?  If so, lump yourself in with the majority Today I received the following from somebody I'd consider very typical when it comes to fitness.

That’s NOT Revolutionary!

Seriously… can that word even be used next to "bodybuilding" without laughing hysterically? Occlusion Training now called Blood Flow Restriction Training Sets to Failure now called Neurological Overload Sets What in bodybuilding today is truly revolutionary? Think about it for a moment. For the sake of argument, let’s just agree that Creatine was the last revolutionary thing to hit the bodybuilding market. Well documented, over 300 peer reviewed research studies. (If you didn’t count supplements, I can’t think of anything recently that would classify!) That was some time ago. Since then, nothing has truly been revolutionary. Not HIIT, not high volume, not supersets, not one set...

This Really Ticks Me Off!

I got an email recently from a big shot that claimed that he could help me build muscle, tone my body, and all of the other body building related practices. This is not the bad part...Read on. Here is what really gets to me about people like this. The thing is, I happen to know that the person claiming the above has no experience in the subject at hand. He has never successfully created or developed the body of his dreams. There is a rumor floating around that the book he is selling was ghostwritten, in other words he did not even...
