To be honest, I am a novice when it comes to fitness. I am happy to admit that I am learning. It is important as a man of size, especially in fitness to become as knowledgeable as possible. I also recognize the importance of fitness.  There are lots of different ways to build muscle, but not all of them are healthy. If you’ve been trying to bulk up, here are a few strategies that you should avoid like the plague along with some advice on what you should do instead.

 

Dirty Bulking

 

In order to repair and build your muscles after a workout, you need to consume more calories each day. Too many people think that this gives them a license to pig out on junk food. Whilst this junk food is full of calories that could help you to bulk up at first, in the long run, you could find that you’re building more fat than muscle. This food also isn’t good for you heart and arteries and could cause cardiovascular problems in the future including strokes and heart attacks. You’re far better off trying a diet such as this Jason Ferruggia meal plan that uses natural fats and unrefined carbs.

 

Starving Yourself

People that are overweight and looking to build muscle may attempt to starve themselves whilst working out. Most commonly this will fail, resulting in weight loss but no muscle gain. In other cases it may work – the few calories you’re getting could be going into muscle repair, however, this could result in the rest of your body not getting the nutrients it needs. Starving yourself should never be the solution. You’re better off keeping your calorie intake high, but eating more healthy calories and limiting fat.

Singling out muscles

If you’re trying to focus on your arms or your chest, it’s important to still exercise other muscle groups. Singling out certain muscles won’t just lead to a lack of symmetry – it could put a strain on joints and ligaments. The most common and joked about an example of this is focusing wholly on upper body strength and not the legs. By skipping leg day, you could actually damage your hips and knees as your legs won’t be strong enough to support your upper body.    

 

Taking Steroids

 

Taking steroids isn’t just cheating. Whilst these drugs do help you to build muscle, they can also have negative health side effects. They’ve been commonly linked to causing infertility and insomnia, as well as causing people to take on features of the opposite gender. Women have been known to grow more body hair and have lower voices, whilst mean have been known to develop breast tissue. Steroid abuse is becoming increasingly more frowned upon with bodybuilding bloggers such as Erny Peibst outing and shaming culprits who turn to steroids. You’re far better off naturally building muscle – it’s much harder, but you won’t have to deal with the side effects and it will be more mentally rewarding rather than something you’re secretly ashamed of.  

 

Relying on supplements

 

Supplements such as creatine and protein shakes can help you build muscle. However, relying too heavily on them can have side effects. Not only is it more expensive than natural dieting, you could cause overdoses of certain nutrients. Vitamin E is found in many bodybuilding supplements and less so in natural foods – whilst it can help with bodybuilding, it could also have the side effect of thinning the blood if you consume too much. Take supplements in moderation and don’t use them wholly as an alternative to dieting.

Would You Give Boot Camps A Try?- Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Fitness In A BIG Way

Kavah King for The Gentlemen’s Curb

I am Thinking To Try A Boot Camp…

Trying to get healthy isn’t easy, especially as a man of size. Here at The Gentlemen’s Curb, we do our best to encourage men of size to try to make healthier choices. We will never be small, but here are some tips to stay healthy. One of the biggest challenges we face is boredom. This is why it is important to switch up your workout regularly to make sure you don’t lose motivation. If you have never experienced a fitness boot camp before, this is definitely something you should give a try. Keep reading to discover the reasons to sign up for a fitness boot camp today.

  • It’s the closest thing you’ll get to a military workout – If you have always had dreams of making it in the military, or this type of thing simply excites you, a boot camp is the closest thing you will get to the real deal. You can join boot camps that are based on military-style workouts. All you need is some cheap survival gear, and you are good to go. These themed boot camps are exceptionally challenging, but they are a lot of fun.
  • Boot camp workouts are a lot of fun – Attending a boot camp will bring some variety to your workouts. You can switch things up with exercise-based games and a completely different workout environment. This will be a lot more exciting than your standard gym routine.
  • They teach discipline – You will have a fitness coach that is shouting instructions throughout. You will need to push yourself harder than you ever have before. Quitting is not an option. If you are someone that gives up easily, a boot camp is one of the best ways to ensure you learn about discipline and never giving up.
  • They’re ideal if you are competitive – Going to the gym isn’t exactly competitive unless you are mentally competing with the guy next to you. However, a boot camp environment introduces competition to the fitness format. If you have the innate desire to outdo everyone else, this will enable you to get better results from your workout, as you will be in an environment that you thrive in.
  • Get better results in a shorter period of time – You are going to pack a lot of work into a short period of time by taking a boot camp. You will burn calories at an advanced rate because your instructor will keep things moving. Many different types of training are incorporated into each session, ranging from cardio to resistance.
  • Your confidence will take a boost – If you can tackle a boot camp workout, you can take on anything. By the end of your camp, you will feel like a new person. This confidence boost will give you the kick you need to achieve your fitness goals.

Plus, if you’re someone who doesn’t stick to your workout routine as you should, a boot camp will make sure you do!

How To Get Healthier Fast!- The Gentlemen’s Curb Big And Tall Influencer

In Fitness In A BIG Way

How To Get Healthier Fast

We all have different goals, aspirations, and plans. We are all built different and have different body types. After some research, The Gentlemen’s Curb put together some exercises to help you drop some weight quickly. I am aware some of us including myself have different body types and we will never have the “conventional look,” but these exercises will help your heart to beat and help your overall health. Below are some sports that deliver the best results, look no further, this article is for you. Read on to find out which sports disciplines are the best for your over health.

Martial arts

Based on combat practices, martial arts can be used in self-defense or for mental and spiritual development reasons. The sport emerged in Europe as early as the 1550s, earlier than the 1550’s if the continent of Asia is included, and it translates from Latin as literally “arts of Mars”, the latter being the Roman God of War. Karate and a number of other martial arts offer a great deal of physical and mental benefits to your body, these ranging from better posture and higher stamina to improved conditioning and greater agility. You can start training right after investing in some appropriate gear!

Cycling

With cycling nowadays being one of the preferred forms of a commute for many citizens around the world, it shouldn’t be difficult to include it in your fitness routine. This aerobic activity will get your heart, blood vessels and lungs going and by breathing better, you will improve your general fitness levels. If you decide to start pedaling, not only will you become healthier and sleep more profoundly, but you will also become better at pretty much every sport around due to the fact that, as a study suggested, aerobic endurance training makes you better at sports like soccer. The safety hazard that traffic poses to cyclists cannot be overlooked, however, and as a result of this, more and more riders are investing in things like a solid helmet. It would also be wise to have the number of these bicycle accident solicitors at hand just in case.

 

Swimming

 

Swimming, as you can probably imagine, offers a workout like no other sport. The activity form makes you use all the muscles in your body and exercising in water means you have to work harder, which is all extremely beneficial to the body. Swimming not only improves muscle definition and strength, it also helps build up bone mass and reduce inflammation. For an improved body condition and provided you have no existing injuries (if you do, it’s always better to check with a professional), swimming three times a week for up to 30 minutes each would be the ideal scenario. Invest in some goggles for extra clarity under water.

 

The above sports are a great way for you to tone your body. Get properly checked by a doctor before trying any of these activities regularly, however, in order to ensure you are fit for training. It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Protect Your Skin!- Gentlemen’s Curb Brawn Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

 

grooming, men's grooming, gentlemen's curb, dapper, grooming, menswear, plusmalefashion, plusmalegrooming, beardgang,

It might not be the most “manly” thing to discuss moisturizer, but the reality is that most mornings, if you are clean shaven, you will be running a sharp blade across your face that has been lying around in a bathroom, with all sorts of bacteria lurking under the surface… and as a result, us men need to take care of our skin – particularly when shaving.  Nobody likes the appearance caused by a shaving rash or ingrown hairs.  If you suffer from razor burn, also known as a shaving rash, you might want to check out this article: razor burn

 

The good news is that we’ve come leaps and bounds from the archaic view that boys don’t cry and it’s girly to moisturise – indeed, we are now encouraged to take care of our skin, even to the point of applying concealer to cover our tired eyes; but taking care of our skin is nothing new.  Think of the Turkish Shave experience, one of the manliest and original of all male grooming activities; where a lot of care is taken with regard to the skin, from hot towels that open up the pores to the alcohol splattered on your face to close your pores and protect from infection.

 1. USE A GOOD RAZOR

The first thing you need to consider is the razor you’re using.  In part, this comes down to the quality of the razor, and a great recommendation to check out https://luxuryshavingrazors.com/safety-razor/muhle-r89-review/  which is particularly good for sensitive skin.  However, it’s not just about the razor quality, it’s about how well used the razor blade itself is.  You don’t want to be hanging onto your old razor like a long lost love – you want it to glide across the surface of your skin, rather than tug at each follicle, as it grinds across your face.  The top tip, here, is to invest in a decent razor and then replenish the blades before they start tugging due to the bluntness that comes with natural wear and tear.


2. USE A DECENT LUBRICANT

There are many shaving gels, foams and creams out there.  The majority of people simply pick the one that smells the nicest, is on special offer, or in reaction to an aspirational advertising campaign… but just like picking out a meal, you want to check out the ingredients on the back – ideally, you want to find something with mostly natural ingredients.


3. MOISTURIZE

The final step is to moisturize.  Ideally, with a natural anti-inflammatory such as aloe vera, coconut oil or Baldwin.  Again, most people get which one smells the best but look to the ingredients – you want to avoid anything with numbers as this can be a harsh chemical that will actually aggravate the skin, but is full of natural ingredients.  In fact, one of the simplest ways to moisturize is to put some raw organic coconut oil on your face after you’ve shaved (and if you want brownie points before you go to sleep too).

Until next time it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Gift Ideas For Guys-Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

gentlemenscurb, brawnfit, giftideas, giftforguys, holiday, influencer, xlinfluencer, plusmaleinfluencer, bigandtallinfluencer, brawninfluencer,

Why is gift shopping so difficult when you’re trying to buy something for a male friend? You might buy little gifts and presents for Mom or your girlfriend every few weeks, but guys are different. When was the last time you received a gift from a mate? Can’t remember? Chances are you can’t remember what you got either because it didn’t make that much of an impact. If flowers and candies are strictly for the ladies in your life, then why not try some of these options next time you have to pick something up for a friend:

 

Music To His Ears

 

If your male friend loves music, then it’s time you did a little research. You probably already have a good idea what his musical tastes are. Now you need to find that rare release. Vinyl will always feel that little bit special, especially when compared to a digital download. If you get stuck, go with the CD. Look for a signed cover or a limited release artwork. Collectors’ items are always worth the investment. You’re bound to be remembered for this gift choice.

 

Gadgets And Gizmos

 

Most men love their tech, and a gift that looks high-tech could be perfect when you’re stuck for ideas. They can be novelty items, or genuinely useful. What a man doesn’t need is another mini fridge stowed under his desk? Then, of course, is the app-controlled drone, or the fish-eye lens for his phone. If you’re worried about getting the wrong thing, then why not get him something that protects the tech he already has? Ruggedized cases for tablets and phones will always be welcome accessories.

Those Habits

 

Most of us have the odd habit or guilty pleasure. Perhaps you’re looking to get him yet another chillum, or you’ve spotted some customizable shot glasses? If the man loves a particular candy bar, why not get him one of those miniature vending machines that can spew out an endless supply of them? Of course, you could always cook him a meal! Whatever he enjoys, go ahead and celebrate that. That’s what gifts are about, after all.

 

Vouchers? Really?

 

Let’s face it – buying fashion for a friend might not go down too well. But you could hand over some vouchers from the retailer he shops at most. Vouchers are a great way to avoid making mistakes. They don’t have to be impersonal though. Perhaps there is a store he always checks out but never buys. Convince him to make that purchase with a voucher. Don’t forget, niche stores like comic book stores, gadget outlets and instrument retailers all offer gift vouchers. Be thoughtful, and you’re bound to get it right.

Tickets

 

You can’t often go wrong with tickets. And who wants to go to the game alone? Buying tickets to a home game could be the perfect gift, and you get to benefit too. Just make sure you’re both free for that one! Have you ever struggled to get a great gift for a male friend? Make a great impression with one of these choices. And be memorable in the right way!

Healthy Eating for Those Who Aren’t Gifted in The Kitchen

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

gentlemenscurb, lifestyle, xlinfluencer

Not everyone can cook. But that’s okay. For some reason, so many of us are convinced that you have to be some sort of Nigella Lawson or Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen to be able to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Fortunately, this isn’t necessarily true. While you might not be able to whip up a five-course meal with ingredients nobody really knows how to pronounce correctly, you can easily ensure that you get all of your necessary vitamins, minerals, and other forms of essential nutrition into your diet. Here are a few simple ways to go about it.

 

Kick Meat to the Curb

 

First things first, it’s a good idea to ditch meat from your diet. Why? Well, believe it or not, various studies have proven that meat (red meat in particular) can have a whole host of detrimental effects on our overall health and wellbeing. What’s more? While you may think that meat is healthy, the majority of us tend to opt for cuts that are fatty or cheaper options such as burgers, nuggets, and meat slices that are often made from reformed meats and the cold cuts that hold little nutritional value. Besides the negative health complications caused by meat consumption, taking on a vegetarian or vegan diet also makes you think a lot more about what you’re putting into your body. Fast food chains and take aways tend to have little to satisfy a veggie’s needs, so you’re more likely to keep them at bay. You will also have to read up a little more on what your body requires to gain sufficient levels of protein. This will expand your knowledge regarding nutrition and healthy living, which you can then implement into every meal you cook up.

 

Try a Different Type of Food Delivery

 

Takeaways are a complete health hazard. Sure, one here and there will be fine. But if you find yourself regularly chowing down on these meal options, you’re likely to experience issues with obesity, bad skin, and nutritional deficiency. So, what’s a person to do if they have little time on their hands for cooking themselves? Well, there’s a healthy alternative: Meal Delivery. Specialist companies use gourmet chefs to cook up high quality, nutritious, and delicious meals that can be brought right to your doorstep. So, no more excuses!

Learn How to Make Soups and Stews

gentlemenscurb, xlinfluencer,

If you’re a novice in the kitchen, try learning how to make a few basic soups and stews. These are some of the simplest culinary ventures out there. They can also be made in bulk and frozen to be eaten later in smaller portions. But the best part? Soups and stews can be absolutely packed with a whole variety of vegetables, making them one of the most filling, hearty, and healthy options that you can get. So, start looking up a few simple recipes. Tomato, butternut squash, and carrot soups have very few ingredients and steps in the cooking process but are greatly rewarding once they’re done.

 

So, no matter how incompetent you may think you are when it comes to cooking, you can still ensure that you get everything you need in your diet.

Will This Style Box Work For Men Of Size?

Due to the recent clothing accommodations for big and tall, plus males and brawn men, I am very excited. It has become our duty and privilege to bring you the latest news in fashion and fitness routines for men of size. Have you ever seen style boxes and thought that you were too big for a style box? Have you ever thought that you would love that opportunity?

Enter: The Winston Box

I had an awesome opportunity to speak with the owners of the Winston Box. The Winson Box informed me of their passion for providing clothing options for men of size and their sincerity in finding stylish and quality clothing!  “The Winston Box takes both its name and its inspiration from Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and one of the most stylish men to ever grace the planet.” With a strong foundation, I am already on board.

“Our mission is to dispel the myth that style and size are mutually exclusive by being purveyors of fashionable clothing designed to fit and flatter the Big & Tall man.”

Personally, I like the clothes. The clothing is of good quality, the makers of the Winston Box went above and beyond. The Winston Box manufactures their own clothing! “Having complete control of the design, manufacturing, and distribution of our signature label, we can deliver high-quality garments and consistent sizing at a reasonable flat rate.” That’s exciting! I am sold! I need the curators to send a few more packages! Great work, Winston Box!

As Man Of Size, Have You Ever Felt Limited In Fashion?

In too many cases, I have obeyed the rules. I do believe at on point I stuck to safe clothing styles. As a man of size, I would choose to wear a polo shirt, an oxford shirt or a sweatshirt. I felt as if I couldn’t go wrong with these choices. At any time that you saw me, I was safe. As a big and tall/brawn/plus size man, I felt as if those were the only options available for me. I wouldn’t admit it before, but I will admit it know. To be totally honest, those clothing styles made me feel trapped. I felt extremely limited.

New Rules With ASOS

Many brands have ventured into making clothes for men of size. But, ASOS has had a few diverse clothing options for us! We are done with traditional looks for fashion for men of size! New York City has some of the best bottomless brunches on the planet and I made an appearance and represented for all men of size. The drinks were unlimited, but so were the looks. I am not a man who receives compliments often, but I felt like the fat version of Lance Gross!

I also paired this look with some boots from ASOS! I wasn’t aware that they carried large sizes. I wear a size 15, so when I see a brand that carries large size, I get very excited.

When I got the news that Mo’ Vaughn started a clothing line catered to plus males/brawn/big and tall men, I was absolutely excited. Mo Vaughn had a standout career in MLB. Here we have a man of size who is an established athlete and a champion. It’s only fitting that men of size are equated with this level of excellence. I felt honored to collaborate, especially because it shatters stereotypes that men of size aren’t gifted athletically.

     With MVP To Have To Do It BIG!

The Notorious B.I.G. was one of the best rappers but his career was cut short because he was murdered. The Notorious BIG was a man of size. The rapper embraced his size and help many people appreciate men of size who have ben viewed previously as sloppy, insecure and awkward. (Heavy D was another rapper who was known as the overweight lover. Heavy D was stylish, gifted lyrically and the ladies loved him.) I applaud the efforts that designers make to cater to what men of size. We are a bit tired of the old designs and tired of being limited to “traditional” styles.

At MVP Collections, Mo Vaughn made sure that the designs weren’t old. They weren’t just oxfords or polos shirts that brands that cater to men of size usually carry. Personally, I felt like I needed the heather gray t-shirt with a curved hem. Which is almost impossible to find at sizes 3x and up. Trust me! When I saw the shirt I almost did a backflip. Yes, all 300 pounds of me.  I searched for a while to find a shirt with a curved hem for men of size and MVP Collections answered the call.

Gentlemen’s Curb On The Runway-GentlemensCurb Plus Male Blogger

In Fashion In A BIG Way

On Saturday, January 28th, 2017, I had the opportunity to model for a line designed with the big and tall/plus male and the brawn man in mind. I am still speechless! I would have never thought in a million years that I would be on anyone’s runway. When I first started blogging, I just wanted to be a voice for men of size. I wanted to help men and encourage those men of size that are going through similar circumstances as myself. I had the first opportunity to model for Brandon Kyle Menswear, I didn’t think that I would be modeling again.

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity. I see myself as a blogger for men of size. So, when situations arise where I can model, I am extremely nervous. The venue was full to capacity, which added to my nervousness! But, I represented for all those that don’t have a voice. I represented for all of the men of size feel neglected when shopping due to their size. There are opportunities being presented for men of size. Designers and brands that cater specifically to us is a dream come true!! The idea alone is extremely exciting!
