Like I mentioned on Black Friday, Onnit is having a huge sale, and it’s actually getting better today for Cyber Monday. You can still save up to 25% on supplements, foods, packages, fitness equipment and gear, but you can also save up to an additional 10% based on how much you spend. If you spend $150 or more, you get an additional 5% off. If you spend $250 or more, you get an additional 10% off on top of the aforementioned discounts. That’s bonkers! Plus every order regardless of its amount will receive a free single go pack, which is essentially a single serving of something like Alpha Brain or Shroom Tech Sport.
This incredible Cyber Monday sale ends tonight, Monday, December 2, 2013 at 11:59 PST. Remember that PST is actually three hours behind EST, so that would really be 2:59AM EST.
This is all I’m going to say on the Onnit Cyber Monday Sale. Below is the breakdown of the savings:
In my post earlier today I mentioned how I was going to tone down the Onnit posts on this blog, so I’ll keep this one short and sweet.
Like every other online and brick and mortar store, Onnit is having a sale this Black Friday, and it’s the best one of the year. If there are any supplements supplements, foods, package deals, or fitness gear that you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time to pull the trigger. Some of this stuff can also make a great Christmas gift as well, so there’s that to think about too. At any rate, there are some great deals, so act quickly, because some of this stuff is sure to go out of stock over the weekend.
And for the record, this sale includes everything from Primal Bells and Zombie Bells to Onnit 180 drink mix, Total Primate Care, Hemp Force, T+ testosterone booster, Alpha Brain, Blendtec blenders, and everything else.
Here’s the breakdown of the savings during Onnit’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale:
This sale starts on Friday, November 29, 2013 at 12AM EST. So to those of us who don’t go to bed at 9PM, this means Thursday night at midnight everything goes on sale. The sale is on all weekend and concludes on Cyber Monday (Monday, December 2, 2013) at 11:59 PST. Remember that PST is actually three hours behind EST, so that would really be 2:59AM EST. Confused yet? Me too. Not sure why Onnit chose to list these times in two time zones, but there you have it. Visit onnit.com sometime this weekend after midnight tonight (but before midnight on Monday night) and you can save up to 25% off everything.
I know everyone is all excited about the new Onnit Zombie Bells, and I am too. I say “bells” plural because there is more than one. Aubrey Marcus said on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast that there will actually be four Zombie Bells kettlebells in various sizes. So, it looks like this will be an ongoing thing for Onnit: kettlebells in four different varieties each with a different look. (Update 10/28/13: Zombie Bells now available!)
The first of these stylized kettlebells was of course the series of Primal Bells. Three were first released; the chimp, the ape, and then the orangutan, and yesterday the fourth in the series was released. This one is called The Howler!
The Howler is the smallest of the Primal Bells, weighing just a half pood, or 18 lbs. in terms we can all understand. This one looks like a screaming chimp with his fangs exposed. While it’s the smallest of the Primal Bells, it’s definitely the most menacing looking!
Like all the Primal Bells, The Howler is crafted from chip-resistant iron that will stand up to regular wear and tear and rusting as well. You can use this like a savage and keep it on display in the meantime. It’s a work of art that’s perfectly balanced, meaning you can use it like a traditional kettlebell and it won’t feel any different. It just looks infinitely more badass than a cannonball with a handle attached to it.
Check out the whole line of Primal Bells at Onnit, and if you haven’t bought any yet, you can buy all four in a bundle at a significant savings. You can save 15% total when you purchase all at once! But make sure you save up a bit of money for the Zombie Bells which are now available, just in time for Halloween!.

Joe Rogan got me curious about kombucha tea when he was talking about it on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. For a long while he was speaking of how good it tasted and how good it made him feel as well. After a bit of research it seems like the health benefits of kombucha could be real, or maybe they’re not.
Kombucha tea is full of probiotics. Probiotics are useful to our digestive systems. They help keep us regular and prevent us from getting backed up. That’s a good thing, and relatively easy to believe. These days, probiotics are in a lot of the foods on grocery store shelves, such as yogurt. Specific brands of yogurt use the inclusion of these probiotics as the main selling point.
Others claim some different health benefits of kombucha aside from staying regular. Many believe that kombucha helps to boost the body’s immune system, promoting a healthier, more well-balanced metabolism and internal organs. Some say it helps with baldness, arthritis, and can improve skin quality. Chances are if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
While there are scores of people who swear by kombucha and its health benefits, it may not be seen that way by those in the medical industry. The fact is there aren’t enough (or any, really) studies on kombucha to prove its supposed benefits one way or the other. The only thing I can suggest is trying kombucha tea for yourself for a little while and see how you feel. Perhaps going in with a little skepticism is a good thing and will curb any placebo effect that you could otherwise be attributing to the tea.
If you listen to The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, you know how Joe likes to go on and on about certain products that he loves. In many cases he’s not even advertising anything, he’s just speaking as someone who found something that works for him and he wants everyone else to experience the benefits of that particular product as well.
I’ve noticed a lot of traffic coming in from people who want to know what kind of blender does Joe Rogan use, what his favorite exercise DVD is, and what type of coconut water he drinks. In this brief post, I’ll outline what some of Joe Rogan’s favorite things are.
Joe Rogan’s favorite blender is the Blendtec Designer 625. It’s true at first he was recommending a Vitamix, but as he tried out the Blendtec, he changed his mind. There are benefits to each and features one has that the other doesn’t, but at the beginning of each day, Joe Rogan is making his hulk loads kale shakes in a Blendtec rather than a Vitamix.
Joe Rogan’s favorite kettlebell DVD is The Extreme Kettlebell Cardio Workout DVD. Joe has been going on for at least a couple of years now about the benefits of Keith Weber’s kettlebell DVD. He says that it only takes 20 or 30 minutes and a 30 lb. kettlebell to get your ass kicked. I’ve tried this DVD, and I can say that is without a doubt the truth. If you’re a beginner looking for a DVD, this isn’t the one for you. Try a kettlebell DVD from Amy Bento instead.
Joe Rogan’s favorite coconut water is C2O coconut water. Joe has tried a lot of coconut water, and he finds C2O coconut water to be the sweetest and most delicious. It’s made with a special type of coconut found in Thailand which sets it apart and above from all others, according to Joe. Being a Canadian, I’ve never tried it, as it doesn’t seem to be available anywhere up here.
That’s all I can think of for now. If you’re wondering about any other of Joe’s favorites, just leave a comment below and I’ll update this post.
