My New Secret Weapon Of Mass Construction

Is it some heavily marketed supplement, gadget, or exercise DVD set with a manly-sounding name and equally manly-looking logo backed by the latest discoveries in sports-pseudoscience?


It's an Instant Pot IP-LUX60 6-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker!


To me, it's like a slow cooker on steroids. And speed. Because it’s powerful and fast.

What normally takes me 9+ hours to cook in the slow cooker only took a little over an hour in the Instant Pot.

Here’s a picture of some sort of pork, carrots, onions and some Korean BBQ sauce:

Instant Pot IP-LUX60 6-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker yummy.

Now I don't have to wait all day (or all night) for my food to cook.

It actually has 6 different functions along with being a pressure cooker. It also works as slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer & warmer and can sauté food. But I’m probably going to use the pressure cooker function only, since I already have a separate rice cooker and slow cooker.

Pretty excited to use this more often in the future.

Let the gains begin!

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
