I Trained Like Muhammad Ali: Here’s What Happened​

Mar 30, 2024

In this video, I attempted to train like Muhammad Ali. That means adding jump rope, heavy bag work, and running to my workouts, every single day. It turned out to be quite a lot!
Reportedly, Ali would run about 7 miles to his 5th Street Gym, then do 10-20 minutes of jump rope, followed by ab training, and many rounds of heavy bag work and shadow boxing. He didn't typically do much sparring but would, instead, allow an opponent to try and hit him while he practiced evasion.
My hope, was that this additional training could help to improve my cardio, give me more energy, and make me faster and looser on my feet. Despite his massive size, Ali moved gracefully and explosively.
Things didn't go precisely according to plan... but you'll need to watch the video to find out more!
Either way, Muhammad Ali is a hugely influential figure whose charisma, sharp wit, and innovations within the sport cement him as a legend.
Is your training inspired by Ali?


Bodybuilders Eating In The Golden Era 1975 - Pumping Iron​

Apr 3, 2024

Behind the Scenes of Pumping Iron, bodybuilders eating post workout in preparation for the 1975 Mr Olympia. They also discuss the idea of creating a Bodybuilders Union to improve their financial situation and not get screwed by Weider. Enjoy.

This one's pretty good. Jerry talks about Brian Johnson in a way that had me smiling.

To begin:

Bryan Johnson’s anti-aging Blueprint ‘basics’ are now officially available to the public for $333 a month—but you’ll need the right ‘vibe’ to join the ‘fun’​

Bryan Johnson, the tech entrepreneur-turned-biohacker, is opening the doors to his “secret plan to kickstart our evolution from Homo Sapiens to Homo Evolutis”.

The 46-year-old, who has spent the last year swapping blood with his 17-year-old son, adhering to a strict diet, and taking unproven gene therapy injections in a bid to achieve a biological age of 18, is now offering his fountain of youth formula to the public.

For $333 a month those wanting to follow the maverick entrepreneur's regime can take Johnson’s 'basics' which includes, nutty pudding, extra virgin olive oil, ginger and garlic.

The centi-millionaire founder of Blueprint revealed on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that applications are open to try out the 90-day “self-experimentation study”—but be quick, there’s only enough stock for 2,500 people.


Now let's hear what Jerry has to say...............

Nothing to see, can listen in one tab, play around the forum in a different tab.

Nobody is perfect. But in today's day and age of fast flying digital technology - bodybuilding misconceptions are more prevalent than ever before. It might stand to reason that having a search engine in our pockets at all time provide us with more access to correct information.

That's why Jerry Brainum is going to clear the air with his breakdown and list of the most common bodybuilding misconceptions and training mistakes. Most of these misconceptions you may have heard before - or even quite possibly believed as a genuine tip to help your training.

Can't Run - Try These Bike Workouts​

There are moments in every runner's journey when they face setbacks like tendonitis, shin splints, sprained ankles, or foot pain. It's a common experience, with over half of all runners encountering a running-related injury yearly. However, these challenges don't have to stop your progress. By incorporating these effective alternative training options, you can maintain your cardio training habit even when you cannot run for a few weeks or longer.

It is possible to take some time off from running, heal up, and get back to running again even faster than before you were injured, but let’s explore these options:

The bike workouts listed below are not your typical leisurely rides. They are designed to replicate the intensity of your running efforts. Even zone two biking, considered moderate, requires a level of pacing that is work. These workouts are intense, pushing your leg, lung endurance, and muscle stamina to the limit. The result? You'll likely return to running faster than before you were injured.

Bike Workout #1: Bike Tabata Intervals – This high and easy intensity interval works in 20-second fast / 10-second easy segments. Hold the 20 fast / 10 easy intervals for the time of your timed running event. If you run your 1.5-mile run in 10 minutes, these intervals will last 10 minutes. However, take an easy 5-minute rest (slow bike) and repeat the 10 minutes of the Tabata Interval again.

Bike Workout #2: Bike Pyramid (increase resistance EMOM) – For this pyramid workout, you start at 80 RPMs at level one on the resistance scale and keep it in between the range of 70 and 90 RPMs the entire workout. Every minute on the minute you increase the resistance by one or two levels depending on the amount of time you have. You can apply the Tabata interval for any cardio machine, but many have also used it for work-to-rest ratios for calisthenics and kettlebells.

Bike Workout #3: 100-calorie burnout set – as fast as possible - This is meant to be a higher-intensity workout. That would be like a sprint workout if you were running. Then, it is your job to go as fast as you can for as long as you can until you reach 100 calories. This workout/test estimates caloric burn, but it feels like you are timing yourself and a mile run. Typically, 100 calories burned on a bike or elliptical takes about the same time to run a mile fast with similar effort. This is one of those workouts that takes five and seven minutes to bike. After you burn 100 calories, rest with easy peddling for 5 minutes and do it again for a second set. If you have anything left in you, try for a third set after another 5-minute easy period.

Let's not overlook the power of rest and recovery, especially from impact exercises like running. Sometimes, the body needs a de-load. Occasionally, you can take an easy week, or an injury will dictate your de-load weeks. Give it to yourself and allow your body the rest it needs.
