The Olde Timers Knew

by Fred Hahn on June 22, 2014

This little gem  Molding a Mighty Arm (copyright 1930) is part of my library collection of old and rare strengthening books. The author, George F. Jowett, was a turn of the century strength and physique guru. As many of you know all too well, I often argue with other experts in the field of personal training and […]

It’s Supposed to be Hard

by Fred Hahn on May 5, 2014

To build or restore muscle and bone tissue requires hard work – intense effort. No amount of easy, fluffy stuff is going to cause  positive tissue remodeling, or as the industry puts it, “make you look better naked.” It doesn’t matter what you believe or what you think will do the trick. Your opinions on […]

Life and Death

March 23, 2014

People say it’s cruel to kill animals to eat them. Well, as I see it, how you kill them is the most important issue. You can do it horribly or humanely. I opt for the latter. I was talking to a client about this the other day. She agreed and understood that we need to […]

Fit in a Few

March 5, 2014

The book above is part of my collection of rare, first edition fitness books. It is also one of my favorites. It was written by Alan Calvert and published by the author  in 1911. The cost of this book was “$1.00 net”. The book is full of gems. Phrases such as “Most lifters are of […]

Can You Afford To Eat Well?

January 27, 2014

I saw this on the Let Fat Be Thy Medicine. I hope they won’t mind my shameless promotion of their movie by using this pic. And…you won’t be buying nearly as many (if any) antacids, acne cream, arthritis meds, cholesterol meds, insulin (if you’re type 2), dry skin salves, eye drops, ear wax removal liquids, […]

As we all know, many people today suffer from obesity. For many obese people, one of the common ailments that comes along for the ride is a fatty liver. An overly fatty liver (greater than 10%) can be problematic. Your liver performs many important tasks and thus needs to be in tip-top shape in order […]

Happy New Strength!

January 2, 2014

Well, we’re off! 2014 is here and so are you! It’s time, don’t you think, to create that body you’ve always wanted? I’m here to help. I’m not talking about getting thin or skinny or getting a 6 pack. In my opinion, these are just cosmetic considerations that have nothing to do with your main […]

FredTalks – Strength Worth Spreading

December 4, 2013

I just realized that it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I place the blame on FaceBook for this. It’s all too easy to just toss a rant up on your wall and watch the sparks fly. It’s fun and it is easy. Too easy in fact. FaceBook posts are certainly not nearly as classy […]

My Low Carb Diet is Killing My Thyroid. I Need Me Some Starch!

October 9, 2013

Here’s my 2 cents worth of thought on the issue: No it’s not and no you don’t. What may be “killing” your thyroid is a poorly formulated low carb diet – just like any poorly formulated diet might. But it ain’t the lack of starch, as starch is non essential to human life. The lack of what […]
