  • Do not do EVERY exercise in one day 
  • How to choose how to build your chest:
    • If you're not trying to become a bodybuilder, at the very most pick 3 exercises per workout that focus on Chest
    • Ex: bench press, incline, decline, dips, dumbbell press, flat fly, incline fly, decline fly, pushups
  • Hit it and quit it -- your body can only handle so much
  • Start with major exercise, then do two minor exercises 
  • Also, make sure you are warmed up with a light weight exercise first (this does not count as 1 of your 3 exercises)
  • How much weight (8-9 sets of press)
    • Reps: 12-15 is good, you want to be hurting at rep 12 (weight wise) and wondering if you can get to 15
    • If you are doing 8 reps, you want to be 'struggling' at rep 6
  • Free weights make sure someone is spotting you 
  • Don't overwork triceps either (tricep extensions) 
  • More is not necessarily better


  • If you aren't going to quit grain, your liver doesn't know that you quit sugar 
  • It might help quitting just sugar, but not ever really effective until you quit both 


  • You can enjoy sugar or grain every once in awhile, just dont go crazy and don't make it a habit, then it is a slippery slope 
  • Vinnie has done 2 years of NLIL and hasn't found ways around it
    • He never told himself lies and ate agave or fake sugars or anything like that
    • If you want to do NLIL, don't lie to yourself -- your liver won't believe you!
