Hey there. My name is Anthony Mychal, and I’m here to show you how to build an acro-athletically capable “X” physique. Before I slam you with talks of skinny-fat syndrome, acrobatic movement, and gaining muscle without fat, I want to tell you why I’m here and why 98% of my stuff is absolutely free.
Don’t be fooled: I wasn’t born like this. I sat exactly where you’re sitting now. My body was an under-muscled, over-blubbered concoction; the antithesis of skinny-fat syndrome. I can still touch my pinky finger to my thumb around my wrist. When I was in 9th grade, a chick told me I had “girl boobs.”
It took me a long time to find the right path for me and my body because, let’s get serious: there’s so much junk out there (shady supplement claims, outdated logic like bulking and cutting, and information universally suited to genetic wunderkinds and steroiders). How do you know where to start?
I didn’t know where to start. It took me years to filter through the fluff. That’s why 98% of my stuff is free. I know what you’re going through, and I want you to know that I’m all about quality and honesty. And I want you to know what you’re in for before you get your feet wet. That’s why I created a totally free Athletic “X” Physique Hybrid Blueprint Workbook (that’s an incredibly long title, so let’s just say it’s pretty cool). It’s the sauce that has enabled someone with terrible genetics like myself to build an athletic “X” physique.
If you’re here, you’re undoubtedly ambitious. I trust I’ll see you on the inside because the Blueprint is packed with articles, videos, and PDF’s to teach you how to become an athletic-aesthetic hybrid, and also expand your mind-body connection and perception of reality.
If you can spare 10 minutes of your time for the next five days, you can be on your way. Just imagine where you’d be right now if you had this chance five years ago.

P.S. There may or may not be Yoda quotes intertwined in the Hybrid Blueprint. Sadly, Dragon Ball Z isn’t as philosophical as I’d like it to be. Thus, The Force is my religious backing.
This place is about M’s…mmmmmmm…
- movements: tricking, acrobatics, general movement capacity
- muscles: the x physique, trudging through skinny-fat syndrome, aesthetics
- minds: human condition, evolutionary biology, chaos theory, emergence, antifragility
Some call me the skinny-fat savior, as I recently brought the wonderful “disease” to the forefront of minds in recent years. Yes, I am a sufferer myself. Yes, that is a picture of me to the right.
In fact, the turning point in my body composition progress was realizing that I wasn’t a genetic wunderkind, and that if I was going to make myself aesthetic, I couldn’t play by traditional rules.
I’m a misfit. I can touch my pinky finger to my thumb when I wrap my hand around my wrist. In high school, I couldn’t even do a legitimate push-up, let alone a pull-up. I did everything to hide by blubbery, yet shockingly skinny body.
I’m not supposed to be here, and I wouldn’t be if kept listening to “popular” science and muscle building rules. I tried bulking and cutting a zillion times—it’s what typical skinny guys are destined to do. Right? Shove everything down your throat? But always ended up fat and without much muscle — it actually looked like I lost muscle most of the time.
After years of failure, I knocked some sense in myself and asked…what if I’m different? What if I don’t play by the same rules? And that began the cascade of generally disregarding just about every piece of conventional wisdom I came across. I’ll let you decide:
- I often eat only one meal per day, and I’m more muscular than I’ve ever been.
- I eat white rice to gain muscle without getting fat (you read that right). Partly because it works. Partly because, well, Goku ate white rice and he turned Super Saiyan.
- I do both of the above (which some claim impossibility, but I can assure you it’s true) with terrible skinny-fat genetics.
- I don’t believe in bulking and cutting.
- I don’t drink super ultra peritechnostical workout “shakes.”
- I don’t count calories. (I think doing so is a biological disservice.)
- I don’t obsess abut meal times.
- I forego muscle growth in favor for athletic growth at times…to build muscle.
- I sometimes train daily…squats, pull-ups, and the likes.
- I embrace unpredictability in order to make better gains.
Maybe you’re in the same boat. Maybe you’re finally realizing that a lot of big whigs out there are genetic wunderkinds “born with it,” that have really no idea of the struggles you’re going through.
I’ll just let you know that I do understand. Everyone that emails me usually says, “Dude, it’s like you’re describing me and everything I’m going through! How do you do this?” It’s not a ploy or secret. It’s just the truth about where I’ve come from. And I want to help you sift through the sickly amount of sludge slathered on “mainstream” fitness. (I just pray that if find muscle building tough and fat gain easy, you aren’t doing to bulk-cut thing.)
In 2002, in my skinny-fat heyday, I stumbled upon tricking. Tricking is an aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists — a seemingly perfect outlet for me wanting to turn myself into a real life Dragon Ball Z character.
Tricking borrows from martial arts, gymnastics, tumbling, and all of that fun acrobatic stuff to create an underground conglomeration of freestyle movement. It’s not really bound by rules like most other “sports.” It’s just one of those, “If it looks good, sounds good,” kind of things. Tricking is truly what has helped me understand graceful movement and athleticism like I do today.
I started tricking without supervision, training, or facilities. I just walked out on a bed grass and had at it. This is rather common in the tricking world, and the name given to these brave souls is backyard tricksters. I embrace my backyard do-it-yourself heritage. Without it, I wouldn’t be here. I encourage everyone to become a backyarder. That mindset paved the way for my other training. It’s why I built my own garage gym and learned how to train by myself.
Being a skinny-fat pimply adolescent kid, Dragon Ball Z fueled my conception of what a body was supposed to look like, and how it was supposed to function. While I also wanted to be able to do some cool athletic things with my body, my skinny-fat frame begged to be transformed into something aesthetic.
This is seen as vane or narcissistic by some, but those some would be rather wrong. Wanting a body that’s aesthetic isn’t odd by any stretch. The people of Ancient Greece long obsessed over aesthetics with their portrayal of the Ideal body in athletic pose and their use of heroic nudity. They even went as far to create armor (muscle cuirass) that mimicked a well built physique.
Millions of people flock to art museums to see painting, drawings, sculptures, and other forms of art that they think are aesthetic. Simply put, we find our own versions of beauty within the world. Wanting your body to match an aesthetic ideal isn’t much different than an artist wanting to create a piece of work to match an aesthetic ideal.
I have a saying that goes like this: invert your body, invert your mind. I sometimes say doing a backflip forever changed me as a person, and I fully mean it. Also believe changing my body composition did the same. The bottom line is that changing your body changes who you are.
The Greeks believed in the Ideal development of the self through mind, body, and spirit. Today, this virtue is all but lost. We break apart the mind from the body. We categorize. We reduce. We encase ourselves in false boundaries.
I use physical training to explore the entirety of the human condition. This usually means going against popular thought, but I feel it’s our responsibility to question everything considered “normal.”
Ultimately, this place is about thinking, moving, and probing the extremes of the mind and body using physical training as the primary means to explore the human condition…all while intertwining one too many Dragon Ball Z and Star Wars references for comfort.
