NICK WALKER VS BLESSING AWODIBU: THE ONLY INTERESTING THING IN BODYBUILDING

by Matt Weik

The long-awaited New York Pro is just around the corner, and the back and forth between Blessing Awodibu and Nick Walker is heating up. At this point, it would be quite comical if they both went into the show, and neither one of them ended up winning.

WORKING OUT WITH THE APPLE AIRPODS PRO: ARE THEY WORTH THE MONEY?

by Matt Weik

I sit here staring at my Apple Airpods Pro with a joyful yet painful expression on my face as I type this article. I’ve been an Airpods fan since the very first version was launched (which I still use to this day). When the launch of the Apple Airpods Pro happened, I sat back and waited. Ok, that’s not true. I went out and bought them the first week they were available. I love everything about them, but not without a few pain points. I wear them for everything, including workouts. You’d think I would recommend them, right? But maybe I don’t. Here’s what you need to know about working out with the Apple Airpods Pro.

DO THIS ONE THING TO BE HAPPIER WITH YOUR LIFE

by Matt Weik

It shakes me to my core how many people live with depression or anxiety. And while this article is not meant to treat or diagnose such disorders, there’s one thing that I feel everyone needs to learn and understand in order to be happier with your life. We live our lives endlessly wanting the approval of those around us. Our parents, our kids, our spouse, our friends, coworkers, whatever. We want them to like us, respect us, and approve of the things we do and say.

by Christian Duque

Earlier today I received a heartfelt text message from my good friend, IFBB Hall of Famer “Sugar” Shawn Ray, who wanted to share a very special fundraising campaign helping IFBB Pro Bola Ojex, who has suffered a terrible injury and undergone emergency surgery.

BUSINESS TALK: WHY I DON’T READ SUPPLEMENT REVIEWS

by Matt Weik

I was asked the question a few days ago about how much faith I put into supplement reviews. My answer was direct and to the point – I DON’T HAVE ANY. In fact, when I purchase a product, I don’t want to look at the supplement reviews. Not even one of them. Below I’m going to break down my thought process on this, and some of you may sit there and agree with what I’m saying, and some of you may wholeheartedly disagree – both are perfect reactions as I’m not trying to sway you one way or another. I just want you to get into the business owner’s mind and how they view supplement reviews.

For years, we saw people up in arms on the message boards.

by Matt Weik

A PR company reached out to me this morning and asked me if I would like to comment on a move made by Retro Fitness. I had a better idea – I’m going to share my thoughts through an article as my thoughts are NOT going to be what they assume I’d say or what they expected to hear from me.
