This Infographic Breaks Down Low Testosterone

[Philip, The BJJ Caveman here, this is a guest post from Mo Saleem, founder of, a site dedicated to natural ways of improving low testosterone.  He created a wonderful infographic on low testosterone and  asked if I would be willing to share it here.  I took a look at it and thought he did a fantastic job so I said of course.  

Since testosterone is something I’ve been interested in myself and have tinkered with in the past I know that having some thing like this around would’ve been helpful at the time.Read More

The Whole 30 Days 16-30

The second half of the Whole 30 challenge proved to be much easier than the first half.  The BJJ Cavewife and I had gotten used to all of the different rules and were no longer craving all the foods we couldn’t eat as much.

I was getting used to drinking only black coffee with cinnamon and didn’t miss my usual added heavy cream anymore.

The BJJ Cavewife and I continued to observe that eating this way made us full really quickly and it was hard on some days to get enough calories!… Read More

Ushering in 2017


The New Year is right around the corner, and what better way to usher it in than with Jocko Willink’s take on New Years resolution:

Don’t make a New Years resolution to be a better person next year… Make a resolution to be a better person NOW…

That resolution of DISCIPLINE to work and follow through and maintain your will, that’ll result in the freedom that you’re looking for…


I’m currently spending the last few weeks of 2016 on the East Coast with the BJJ Cave-Inlaws and getting in a lot of great brazilian jiu-jitsu training in at the gym I used to train at here, Fifty/50 BJJ.… Read More

Don’t Let Your Health Be Your Blind Spot

The BJJ Cavewife received a call on her day off to see if she could go into work to cover her colleague who called in sick. Since she is a wonderful and thoughtful and considerate person she dropped all of her plans and went into work.

She only found out later that her colleague, a gentleman in his early 60s, suddenly developed chest pain the day before at work. He tried to ignore it and work through the pain, but he looked so terrible that the staff forced him to go to the hospital.… Read More

Cholesterol Update September 2016



It’s been about 6 months since I last checked my cholesterol and I’ve had a few readers ask me how my numbers look.  Before I jump into what the results are I thought it might be helpful, especially to new readers, to detail a little bit about where I’ve come from, and what I’ve been doing in the mean time.

I’ve written quite extensively on my cholesterol history and some of the research I’ve done on the subject throughout my blog.  Here’s a link to everything I’ve written on cholesterol thus far.… Read More

The Whole30, Days 1-15



After learning about The Whole 30 from our Crossfit gym and reading It Starts with Food, the BJJ Cavewife and I were ready to begin.

To kick off the Whole 30, we were asked to state our commitment on the Facebook page.

Here is my statement:

“I am committing to the Whole 30. Exception is some white rice for post workout carbs.

I’m also going to be doing some metabolic measurements which I was planning on doing already, so this might go against the whole not taking measurements thing.”

Step 1 complete.… Read More
