And just like that, it’s already August.
Is it just me or is time accelerating to a breakneck speed? It’s like I wake up, blink a few times, and have to go back to bed.
I mean, just 100 years ago…
- Only 14% of US homes had a bathtub.
- The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 miles per hour.
- Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, and Tennessee were each more populated than California.
- The average wage was 22 cents an hour.
- The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was 30.
- Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn’t been invented yet.
- Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at corner drugstores. According to one early pharmacist, “Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and the bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health.”
And now Google is building a “smart city” in Canada that would make Aldous Huxley proud, Dutch scientists have “teleported” quantum data from one electron to another positioned about 10 feet away, and German physicists have created a Harry Potter-esque “invisibility cloak” that bends light to effectively disappear things.
What will the next 100 years bring? Hard to say, but here’s something you can count on:
More and better products from Legion and yours truly. 🙂
In fact, you can get in on some of that right now because…
Pulse Pink Lemonade is here!
“When are you going to release a new flavor of Pulse?”
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been asked that question, then I’d be be making money in a very odd way.
Seriously though, people just can’t seem to get enough Pulse, so we’re always working on the next flavor, and pink lemonade is the latest and greatest from our flavor lab.
And I know I’ve been saying this way too much recently, but I seriously think THIS is my new favorite flavor.
Another new flavor of Whey+ is on the . . . WHEY.
Seriously though, the Whey+ family is growing faster than a buttered bullet, and the latest trophy we’ve extracted from the flavor mines is MOCHA CAPPUCCINO.
And as an avid cappuccino drinker, you’d better believe I wanted it perfect.
Look for this javalicious guy in a few months.
Want to meet me and the team?
How would you like an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to meet me and the Legion and MFL team?
Rhetorical question, you say?
Well this is for you then, because in a few weeks, I’m going to pick one lucky guy or gal and fly them out to visit Legion HQ to work out, hang out, eat out, whatever floats their boat. 🙂

Casein+ is launching in September/October.
Casein is a neat form of protein because, like whey, it contains an abundance of essential amino acids, but unlike whey, it’s digested very slowly.
For example, a study conducted by scientists at the Centre de Recherche en Nutrition Humaine in France found that whey protein increases blood levels of amino acids for 2 to 3 hours, and casein for 6+ hours.
This is one of the reasons casein has become the premier “before-you-go-to-bed” protein powder. It provides plenty of amino acids to fuel muscle protein synthesis throughout the night, and research shows this can increase muscle and strength gain over time.
Plus, casein is much better than whey for baking and making homemade protein bars, cakes, and pudding.
Time to scoot. Talk soon!

Hilarity ensues here:
P.P.S. I’ve also been toiling away on new third editions of my bestselling books Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger, and I’m getting close to the finish line.
I’m VERY excited to release these into the wild because, quite frankly, my goal with this project is to produce the best fitness books for men and women ever written.
