Beast Life: Guest Post by Ivan Throne on Self Defense

Editor’s Note: This week’s Beast Life is brought to you by none other than the Dark Triad Man himself, my friend Ivan Throne. This week’s topic was the importance of self defense, and I knew that it would best be written by a true master.     Introduction Martial training has been prevalent in human society and culture from the very dawn of human social structures. As apex predators focused both outwards on prey species and inwards on warlike dominance, we have from time immemorial sought to cement predatory outcomes by the twin goals of reducing risk and increasing...

Tomi Lahren: Media Whore

Recently The Blaze’s new talking tart, Tomi Lahren, went on The View to tell the rabid, liberty hating progressives there that despite their differences, she was at least in solidarity with them when it comes to killing your own children. Now, I’m only vaguely familiar with this tart because I don’t watch The Blaze (or Fox News). A program that spends 2 minutes reporting on an actual event and 58 minutes telling you what to think about the event is not news, it’s propaganda. And just because The Blaze emotes toward the right does not make them acceptable. They...

Beast Life – Lunges

To round out your basic leg routine, I want you to do lunges. Don’t get excited, lunges will make you hate life just as much as squats.

It’s...

Beast Life -Reverse Grip Cable Row

This exercise should round out the base of your back routine, along with the T-bar row and the pull up. Most gyms have a row station. But usually folks will go for a hammer grip or a over hand grip. The reverse grip will put focus on parts of your back that only get lightly touched during the other exercises, like the mid and lower parts. You will want to put the lat-pull bar on the cable. Sit in the station seat. If it has foot pads, put your feet in then. Lean forward and grab the bar underhandedly,...

Beast Life – Chest Flys

  I’ve been told by a former pro bodybuilder buddy of mine that Dumbbell chest flys are the single most important shaping exercise for chest. It’s probably due to the fact that it isolates the chest from the Delta and triceps. On a flat bench, from the sitting position with the dumbbells testing on your knees, roll back while hugging the dumbbells to your chest. Press them up. The weights will be significantly less than your dumbbell press, so this will be easy. Touch the dumbbells at the top and bow your elbows out slightly, like you’re hugging a...
