Nothing like a cold week to halt your workouts. Glad to have had the rest tho. This week will be much better weather for more outdoor activities. The sun theese last two days was phenomenal. Nothing better to jump start a good attitude for the day. Lets drop spring now. My home gym flooded and will be closed for a month. I hope sooner. Meanwhile I still have a few options. Tonight I’ll be up meal prepping and planning my day tomorrow. Anyone Skype? Im usually on answering messages during day. If I’m on say hi. I don’t bite. Its just a preference. Biting isnt my thing.

Dmn glad this winter storm bull shit is almost done here in the great state of Texas. Five or six days without above freezing temps and blackouts that dont roll back is a bitch. Great to check my 4×4 system out since I havnt used it in a while. Today I got to Costco at around 50 mark in line. I got a good amount of food to last me a few days. Lots of really good food actually haha. They were letting in 200 people at a time (video in my instagram story). Lots of free food afround the city bought by entrepreneurs around Austin and CEO’s of tech companies. Everyone in the city seems to have come togerther in support of bad decisions being made of our energy system. Staying warm here now. Thisw is when all the fun begins for plumbers. When all said and thawed. The flooding will begin.

So this we3ek has been hell in texas. No hot water from a water heater fire. Then electricity turned off for 3 days. Electricity turned on now no water period from the city. This is crazy for Texas. I played it smart so no pipe issues to worry about. Whats everyone elses weather like? I know San Diego is beautiful as fuck right about now. Thats when I miss it the most. I did manage to get out in a few parking lots with Brutus and tore the shit out of some snow. Looks like the weather here is winding down. Cant wait to start meal prep again once all the trucks roll in with stock. Back to liftin’ would be great too.

People been asking about my knuckle tats and what they read. I’ve thought of this tat for a while. “Live Fast” is really how I live life. I think about life without risks and how boring it would be. EAT. SLEEP. WORK. REPEAT. Not for me. There has to be more to life. You only get one shot at this. You arent promised time. Chose the fist because you punch your way through life as well as roll with the punches but in the end, LIVE A GREAT STORY.

Today is my 40th birthday and I feel 25. Still cocky as all fuck. Its awesome because it snowed today. the only day in 7 years or so it has snowed in austin. after today back to higher temperatures. What a gift. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was low key with lots of great food. I am planning a great meal prep for the week and hitting up a great seafood restaurant. I have not had KING CRAB LEGS in years!  Thats what the king orders on his dinner this evening. Took the day off from the gym to heal and eat and gain size. Great strong week ahead on working out. I post a lot on my Instagram Stories. Plenty of Jocks lying around if anyone interested hit me up.

Today saturday January the 9th 2021 is my last day in my 30’s. Im turnin’ 40 tomorrow. Im really hoping this year is a great one reguardless who is in the White House. I’m not slowing down for anyone. This is a new era in my life where health family and people who matter to me are up most important. As for what has transpired on the capitol steps on January 6th, I think its incredible. The right got sick of the four years of the media and social media shoving thier agenda down the throat of the right. People in BLM marching for what most of them dont even know. They dont even know politics or what they are voting for. Just trash fed to the uneducated easy prey voters. Burning down thier cities, looting. There has not been any of this from the right until enough was enough. This is all the product of media and social media. The right is now fired up. This is what the left has been wanting for the last four years until the shit hits the fan. We are not going anywhere. NEW BREED OF REPUBLICAN emerged four years ago and this is just the beginning. This is AMERICA and we will not stop to keep it that way.

Im back. I hav’nt blogged since pre covid and took that as a break from a lot of media. I did still train but now at the beginning of thge new year, I plan to get back to what life should be like. Im currently 240 and going up. This Sunday January 10th will be my $0th birthday. I damn sure not slowing down and i am DAMN SURE that covid will not stop me. I have listened to all you followersand I kinow yall been missin’ my updates. I joined a new gym and I am going back to my grass roots of strong man and power lifting that i was bred for. I of course am on skype and I still am making videos and all else.  If yall have anything to add, shoot me an email at BUTCHSTRATFORD@GMAIL.COM

How is everyone? I took a short break over the holidays from social media and from blogging to focus on some other things. I AM BACK! I will be training harder and bulking just like I did a year ago. I also just had a birthday pass. I will be hitting it hard and posting a lot more content and blogging a lot more this year. It was a great break with some travel over Christmas spending it with family and friends. The only travel I have planned now is for Phoenix in May. Dont forget I do Q&A’s at least once a week. I hope the best for everyone in the new year! NOW JOCK STRAPS AND BRIEFS ARE AVAILABLE IN BLACK!  Just email me at for details.

NEW FEATURE FLEX: “Deer Lease Flex” is on the horizon of release. 12 minutes of pent up primal nature as I return from hunting up in the deer blind. Its a cold night out but Butch is hot blooded and when muscle calls for protien to grow, Butch goes huntin’.  Check out the preview  DEER LEASE FLEX in THE BULL PEN.

Damn how time flies. This picture was taken about 13 years ago when I first moved to Austin. I was and some say still am a COCKY SON OF A BITCH. Since then I have moved away and lived different places all over the country. Of course I have moved back to the greatest state on earth. Will i live anywhere else? Doubt it. California is beautiful but ASS BACKWARDS. New York is great to visit but QUALITY OF LIFE IS NOT AS GOOD. I like free range of roaming. Here more people are polite and lack the “me first attitude” for the most part. Its usually the Californian implants that are rude here. Not all but definantly not a Texan approach. No sense of how a booming economy runs.

Anyway, I did’nt do much this Halloween. Some errands and hit the gym. Had a great back workout. Since fall has hit, I am looking to bulk up. I have actually leaned down and gave my body a rest for a while. This November I am going to start the bulk and the goal is to get up to 265. The biggest I have been to date was 275 but that came with an injury after so I will be a bit more modest this year.
