Maximum Muscular Potential

How ripped could you get? According to Martin Berkhan's formula, your maximum muscular potential is 172 lbs at 5% body fat. Most people have no desire to be 5% body fat though, so you'd be 181 lbs at 10% body fat & 189 lbs at 15% body fat. These numbers are good goals to aim for if you are bulking up!

Calorie Tracking Tools

There are only 3 tools required for tracking your calories effectively…

Food Scale

You'll need a food scale to accurately measure the calories of the food you're eating (most people underestimate big time!)

Check out this Ozeri food scale on Amazon

Bathroom Scale

You'll need a bathroom scale to periodically weigh yourself so you can track your results.

Check out this EatSmart bathroom scale on Amazon

MyFitnessPal App

You'll need to enter everything you eat into a calorie tracker app like MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal is free and works on iOS/Android. Find it in the app store

Alternative: Cronometer is really good for tracking your micronutrients to find deficiencies

Optional: Fitbit

I was skeptical at first, but the Fitbit is a fantastic tool to passively help you determine your real-world TDEE. It's not perfect, but it's extremely close and the features of it are great (pedometer, heart rate monitor, sleep tracker, vibrating alarm clock).


2 Supplements Every Man Should Take

Omega-3 Fish Oil

Scientists keep screaming it. Keep your Omega 3 – Omega 6 ratios balanced, as an imbalance is proven to cause inflammation, and inflammation is proven to lead to disease. The typical western diet gets tons of Omega 6 already (I've heard as high as 16:1!), so it's generally recommended that most people take a fish oil supplement. Check out this high quality Omega-3. Note: Fish oil pills do go rotten, so if you have some at home, cut one open and smell it. If it smells bad, then it's spoiled and do not eat it. Only take fresh fish oil pills. Fish oil supplements are fat soluble.

Vitamin-D

Vitamin-D is the most important vitamin that the majority of people are deficient in. It's present in very few foods and most people aren't in the sun enough to satisfy the amount of Vitamin-D they need, especially in the winter. Check out this 5,000 IU Vitamin-D supplement on Amazon (1 year supply). Note: Vitamin-D is a fat soluble vitamin so eat some healthy fats with it (I like olive oil, which is very high in Omega 6 so you'll need that fish oil supplement).
