Saturated Fat Revisited: The Debate Continues-Good or Bad?




I came across some interesting articles on saturated fat. It is an old debate as to whether saturated fat is good or bad for you. For many years - decades even, the mainstream touted that saturated fat will clog your arteries, make you fat and kill you. But modern science and research has been blowing the smoke screen away to show that the old myths may not be true.

My thoughts on it are pretty simple. If it comes from nature, most of the time it's good for you. If it comes from man, most of the time it's bad for you.



A lot of people do not realize that coconuts are saturated fat. Full of MCT -medium chain triglycerides, coconuts have plenty of growing literature giving accolades to their health properties. The fat haters still debate it as they always will.

Here are a couple of interesting articles on the saturated fat topic:

The Inuit Paradox – High Protein & Fat, No Fruits/Vegetables and yet Lower Heart Disease and Cancer

I was wrong - we should be feasting on FAT, says The Fast Diet author DR MICHAEL MOSLEY

Coconut Health Benefits, Life Saving and Antioxidant Properties

7 Reasons to Eat More Saturated Fat

Bottom line is that new research is showing what we always knew. Don't fear saturated fats, fear man made processed trans fat.

Friday's Protein Smoothie


Today's smoothie: spinach, fruit, almonds, Brazil nuts, extra virgin olive oil and BioTrust chocolate low carb protein powder. Every so often, I get burned out on eating clean and need a break. Everyone who eats good understands.

So I throw in some smoothies to get the good stuff in easier. I'm not a smoothie hippie or anything but it does come in handy, once in awhile. If you need a break or have a hard time with certain foods, try using it in a smoothie- imagination and variety -so you can (Charlie Mike)- continue the mission.

Double Log Sled Pull


Working legs with the double log sled pull.This is another improvised sled, using fallen pine tree logs from the tornado. I simply tied them together and attached a harness. 

They are heavy enough to hit the legs and light enough to make it a cardio workout as well. Think outside the box. Use all available items at your disposal and improvise workout equipment for little to no cost. It doesn't have to be pretty and have a brand name to work. 

These logs work great and provide a challenging workout for all fitness levels.

Romanian Deadlifts - Awesome Glute Ham Exercise


Monday night's workout started off with some barbell RDLs. RDLs are a great hamstring and glute exercise and really help with your other deadlifts and leg exercises as well.

RDLs are often confused or misnamed with stiff legged deadlifts. The major difference between the two is that RDLs have the knees slightly bent where as the stiff legged deadlifts - yup you guessed it, have the legs extended fully. They wouldn't call it a stiff legged deadlift if your freakin knees were bent. They are two different exercises with different goals. 

RDLs should have little to no back involved -more like none, if you do it right. It is a true posterior chain movement that hits the glutes and hamstrings hard. 

You can go fairly heavy as long as your core can isolate and keep the legs doing the work. As soon as you lose that and feel your back involved then drop weight.  

A stiff legged deadlift will invariably involve the lower back more as well as hamstrings and glutes. I was never fond of this version because of the inherent risk to the lower back. But done safely, it can be used to get the entire back side strong and conditioned. 

Problem with it, is that too many people think that the lower back is a prime mover. It's not a prime mover in any exercise, ever but if you look around, there are dudes and women with strong backs, lifting tons of weight. Back lifters are their own breed and you can't tell them anything so let them rock on with their herculean lower backs. 


For normal people who want healthy backs and strong legs - try doing it correctly by hinging at the hips, driving your butt back and leaning forward until the barbell drops just below your knee. Keep your shoulder blades pinched together and maintain a flat back. Then exhale and drive your glutes forward to peak contraction while you stand up tall, keeping the core braced. You should feel glutes and hamstrings doing all the work. NO Back !!!

Hope this helps. Train hard and stay safe.
