Every Man is an Outlaw

Better to live life as a lion

Every man has a little outlaw in him. A part of his soul that could, if pushed, live life on the other side of the law by his own rules and on his own time. It’s a part of being a man to crave adventure that can only be found on the outskirts of civilized [...]

10 Qualities of a Modern Day Warrior

I hate putting the word “modern” next to the word warrior. Once a warrior always a warrior, I say. But the realities of our world are far different from those of warriors past; at least they appear to be on the surface… The circumstances have changed. In the past a warrior knew his enemy. He fought [...]

The 3 Steps to Building the Ideal Body

The ideal male body… Da Vinci broke it down to its ratios, the David was Michelangelo’s personification of the idea, and antiquity spoke to us about Achilles’ perfection.

Society Breeds Cowards: How to Use the Iron to Become An Alpha Male

I’ve mentioned Theodore Roosevelt on this site before, and held him up as an example as to how a man should live. He pursued his ambitions, even against the wishes of his family.

18 Steps To World Domination

Yesterday, as I left the boxing gym drenched in sweat, lactic acid still paralyzing my body, my pal and I started talking.

How to Get Confident, Be More Manly, & Rule the World

I’ve walked in to job interviews standing strong, confident, and purposeful. And I’ve walked into job interviews timid. I’ve gone on dates where I was more nervous than a hooker at church. And I’ve gone on dates comfortable, confident, and as unapologetically me as I could possibly be. I’ve had periods in my life where [...]

On this site we’re re-defining the traditional “social alpha“. A true alpha is a master of his own domain (cue blatant Seinfeld reference). He’s his own ideal. He’s maximized both his potential and his ambition. He isn’t living in fear, he’s leading with courage. He isn’t the meathead Neanderthal; rather, he’s mastered his mind, his [...]

How to Become An Alpha Male in Modern Society

Where have all the real men gone? It’s a question not asked by one sex alone, but by both. Men want permission; we want someone to say, Yes! It’s okay to be wild, to be strong, to be assertive! It’s okay to be a man! Women want that man. They want strength, kindness and a quiet confidence. [...]

It Isn’t About Us: Why We Train

Why We Train

Don’t be fooled by the fitness magazines, the “fitness guru” blogs, sites, and articles, you don’t train to get a six pack.
