2013 in Pictures


Each year, I like to reflect on my accomplishments. I worked so damn hard in 2013 that I don’t know how I’ll match my performance in 2014. Here’s what I got done in 2013:

It was bitter-sweet, as some unfortunate incidents occurred:

  • My stepfather passed away unexpectedly due to cardiac arrest
  • My friend Dan passed away due to cancer

But my proudest accomplishments of the year by far are the following:

  • Got engaged to 1 beautiful woman, and
  • Visited Thailand and Hawaii with this beautiful woman

Most Popular Articles of 2013

Wow! It’s been a crazy year. Looking back on 2013, I’ve cranked out a lot of articles, and my blog has risen immensely in popularity. Here are the 25 most popular articles of the year:

5 Things You Should Do Everyday

I’ll start off with this one since it kicked the shit out of every other article I wrote this year. This blogpost went viral, receiving more visits and pageviews than any article I’ve ever written, and I’m not sure why. The content? The pictures? The references? A combination of all? At any rate, it was very well-received.

120 Tips on Strength Training for Women

Next up is the infamous post on female training. This article received more Facebook likes than any article I’ve ever written. It was a very polarizing article, and I paid the price for the poor style of wording. It doesn’t really provide tips; mostly observations. And it pissed off a multitude of ladies. My friend Jen Sinkler told me that I needed “sensitivity training” after she saw this article, and I couldn’t see it at the time. Having looked over the article today, I can’t believe I posted that. It was a learning experience, and I’m now a better writer because of it. If I could go back in time and rewrite it, I would. In fact, it would be quite easy to rewrite without offending anyone. But it is what it is!

The Hip Thruster – Now in the UK and Europe

I’m excited to announce that the Hip Thruster is now available in the UK and the rest of Europe!

After launching the Hip Thruster in the US just over 2 months ago, I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from people all over Europe, asking when it would be made available there. So to make it available as quickly as possible, I enlisted the help of my friend Chris Beardsley, who lives in the UK, and together we partnered with Metal Rhino, an amazingly innovative gym equipment manufacturer based in Northern Ireland.

So as of today, if you live in any of the European countries listed, you can buy the Hip Thruster and have it shipped to you within 6 weeks. If you put your order in right now, you will have it just in time to start your New Year’s gym promotion or New Year lifting program at the start of January!
