There's way more to building boulder shoulders than the shoulder press alone. If you want to achieve strong, bowling ball sized shoulders, you'll need to incorporate various lifts into your shoulder routine to hit the multiple parts of the deltoids (shoulder muscles) from all angles. These are some of the most useful accessory lifts to add to a shoulder routine in order to round out some bulky coconut shoulders....

As of November 1st, 2015, I finally achieved a long held goal, surpassing a milestone that I had previously fallen short on numerous times. It took strength of will, conviction, and a place of employment with lax grooming standards. Many times I was tempted to back out, but each time, my doubts were drowned out by a prospect so majestic that the word itself began to ring around my head like a catchy song that I couldn’t shake. The milestone in question? The Yeard.

The Yeard is, as you have probably...

I've been living in southern California for a few months now, and I've got to say, some days are hot and dry as hell. Since I've been sporting my beard longer than usual this summer, it's become extremely susceptible to the the elements. Five minutes after any shower or workout and my facial hair would turn into an unkempt wire brush.

After trying a couple dozen beard balms and beard oils, I gave the brand new Uppercut Deluxe Beard Balm a fair shake. I've been familiarized with the Uppercut Deluxe hair...

In the past, men were not expected to know that much about grooming, nor was there an abundance of grooming products available on the market. A rudimentary toothbrush and any razor you could get your hands on, that was pretty much it.

Oh how times have changed. Grooming and looking your best are no longer activities reserved for women; the modern man takes care of his appearance, both at work and at leisure.

In the English language, there are some words that are often over-used or mentioned in the wrong context. Take the word strategy, for example, which is used regularly by business owners and middle-managers despite the fact that they only have a broad understanding of its true meaning. Far from being a simple and generic business term, the word strategy is in fact a diverse entity that can have numerous applications in the modern world. From gamblers to corporate business owners, strategy can play a pivotal role in driving success and...

There’s something about a real man’s trip that’s fantasy, but you can't always take a break from your 9 to 5 job to don a backpack and explore.  Plus you have a family, and those diapers aren't going to buy themselves. Maybe you tell yourself that you're simply too busy living life.  Except, is that really living? It’s hardly a weekend of debauchery with your friends or an expedition across the mountains, is it? As Bernard Shaw said, “Make the most of your youth and don't skip the opportunities to travel, have fun, make friends, try...

Upon moving from the American northeast to the southwest, my beard called out for attention. The change to a warm and dry climate gradually dried out my beard turned my entire face into a wild porcupine. Beard balm, the close cousin of beard oil, is the tool a man uses to tame the beast dwelling on their face. The beard balm I used for the last few weeks is Virtu Beard Balm by Liberty Premium Grooming Co. Virtu Beard Balm is crafted in the United States with all-natural ingredients: babassu oil (attalea speciosa),...

One of the first things I picked up on from moving to San Diego from New York is the change from humidity to absolute atmospheric dryness.  With the climate change and lack of moisture in the air, one's skin and hair tends to dry out and get "flaky."  This is absolutely true with beards as well, hence the importance of using beard oil regularly. It was around the time of my move from the east coast to the west that I began using a new product called Virtu Beard Oil.  Virtu Beard...

Curly hair can be difficult to figure out, style, and maintain.  Men with curly hair have battled with their hair for eons.  From shaving it off to attempting to straighten it, it seemed like their only option was either the Bruce Willis or Afroman looks.  Of course, there are several alternative curly hairstyles for men that don't require the regular use of a razor or pick, and they all depend on which type of curly hair is covering your scalp. Wavy Hair Although some think of hair as three separate camps (straight, wavy, or curly), a...
