Liver King Confirms Attack Related to Eye Injury, Wrestles Alligator, Works w/ Shaman, “I’m Not a Social Media Influencer,” and Responds to Comments on Holding Wife Hostage…

Current weight:
Primal : — noun : prī-məl : original, 1st version, wild, undomesticated, a wild beast, our truest form… its very nature. — Liver King

This past week was filled with doctor visits related to the eye… Liver Queen by my side the entire time. The doctors said x, y and z… when LK pressed hard enough, one said, “there’s a .0001 chance.” That’s all I needed!

When you know your "why" in the world, winning is a forgone conclusion...all ya gotta do is sort the how and the what — that's the easy part. Define your highest leverage roles (no more than 4)… assign a profound WHY to each, and take massive fucking action (fire, fire, fire, aim!) to execute. Here are mine…

Dominant Man

It’s my biological imperative, and it amplifies my value and impact in my other roles. This week, instead of crushing myself with workouts, I asked for prayers and blessings to heal my eye — thank you to all the Primals out there who sent the love. Right after that, I got me my Mayan Shaman to lead us in ceremony… then I went and squatted a heavy AF load!... earned!

Dominant Dad

To affirm my boys with the depth of challenge, worth and potential, so that one day, they come to believe in themselves as self-made kings. This week, I summarize our celebration… finding our words while sipping Macallens — Stryker’s Barbarian!  

Dominant Husband

My complementary opposite (the balance to my blade)… my lioness… my soul mate… she makes me whole and gives me my edge. This week, I detail my feelings, and set the record straight… is Liver Queen really held hostage!

Dominant CEO

Because 4,000/day kill themselves, and there’s something we can goddam do about it. This week, I highlight precisely how we’re casting the Liver King-sized net, getting the message out by any means necessary, and working hard AF to deliver on 126 Ways

Welcome to “The Way of The Barbarian”… 126 Ways to be a fucking man…126 Ways to take whatever the fuck you want in life… to always stack the deck, dominate, and win… at life!

Liver King Confirms Eye Attack

Primals wanna know, and keep asking about the eye. Alright, alright… enough. Liver King here to give insight. 

“Yes, I sustained strikes, got knocked out, got concussed, got taken by ambulance to hospital, and got eye injuries… Good!” — Liver King

To reiterate, I couldn’t be in a better place… no hyperbole, and whatever the outcome, everything in life is a gift, and I received many of them through this process. Grateful AF!

Ancestral Tenet 8
is Fight… I ain’t going down without one. Having said that, I’m using all technologies possible (new and old) to help heal. The LK shaman led a cacao ceremony one night, all focused on blessings and healing, and a mushroom ceremony the next with a focus on… me, me, me!! I love to say that because the truth is I don’t receive very well. Trying my best to lean into that, and have fun with it! 

“I pray that your eye heals, and I am grateful for you, showing and teaching us how to be strong and positive… especially with something (seemingly) so bad happens in life.” — Stryker (Liver son)

My Queen and my boys all gave me blessings and healings, and I couldn’t be more fulfilled.


Liver King Addresses Holding Wife Hostage

Common criticism… It looks like she’s being forced… like she’s being held hostage. 

Yes, I 100% hold my Liver Queen hostage… there, I’ve said it!

If there’s something so goddam special in your life, something that makes you better in every conceivable way, something that you hold so near and dear to your heart, why wouldn’t you hold it hostage… to endlessly sacrifice to become what is required of oneself so it never wants to leave… or chooses not to escape!

If more of us held a similar position on relationship, there might be less divorce. 

You attract your complementary opposite, so if you want a 10, you have to create internal value in yourself so that you're a 10 too (it starts with self). If you want a 2, remain a 2, so on so forth.

I don’t know who said that it was okay to make a good first impression, do a few dates, get engaged, maintain the figure, even "lose" a few pounds for the wedding, and then gain 5 pounds/year in perpetuity… one day, you end up waking up next to a beast of a being… someone you still love, but you no longer lust. un-fucking-acceptable. 

The respective parties are now drawn to what they deem as attractive outside of the marriage… this is dangerous.

You fucking owe it to yourself and your complementary opposite to express your highest and most dominant physical form… from year one to one hundred. Put that at the center of the marriage because you earn the life, wife and sex life you behold.


I am Liver King... a savage barbarian beast, double-fisting battle axes... running up the mountain to no end. I stand 5’7” at the horizon, and this week, I descend with 192 lbs of force and flesh upon our earth — there's a reason the giraffe is not the King of the jungle.

The Nine Ancestral Tenets are the forces that shaped our ancestors to become the baddest mammalian predators that ever lived… they still work today so that we can be healthy, happy, strong, and robust.

  • Sleep... subprimal — feeling this… I keep justifying that I’ll sleep/rest when the eye surgery is scheduled.
  • Eat... primal AF
  • Move... primal AF — back to doing all workouts (without jerking motions… because the eye might pop out), including the push-up diet and Barbarians… 
  • Shield... primal
  • Connect... primal
  • Cold... primal — back to primal… clocked 30 mins at 34 degrees
  • Sun... subprimal
  • Fight... primal AF
  • Bond... primal AF — the Shaman brought us closer
  • Fun... primal AF — make it a fucking party… that’s why it’s called “life”

Want more Liver King stats, or if young "Primals wanna know," MOOOAR, post in the comments section.


  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV): record lows
  • Resting Heart Rate (RHR): record highs 
  • Perceived Exertion: high
  • Grip Strength: subprimally low
  • Glucose/Blood Sugar: 82
  • Ketones: lowest was .2mM BHB to 1.2mM BHB… metabolically flexible and fit AF!


* No measurements this week except weight

  • Weight: 192 lbs
  • Body Fat: shredded and vascular AF
  • Roman Chest Plate: chiseled
  • Arms: dangerously strong pummeling power
  • Waist: six-pack centerpiece, (maintenance on the Liver King ab implants) and six-pack supplement: murder medley). 
  • Legs: need another Smolov cycle


* No maxes attempt this week just max fucking effort

  • Strict press: DNA
  • Deadlift: no deads per doctor… subbed Good Mornings!
  • Squat: worked up to a heavy single w/ 495 
  • Bench: high reps with light dbs
  • Six Pack Centerpiece: DNA Liver King's 30-push ups every 30-minute diet and DNA  supplemental w/ Murder Medlies on Wed and Sat... DNA heavy unilateral KB carries, yolk carries, and Barbarians, which develop the fundamental building blocks for a strong AF and shredded core... gotta maintain those Liver King ab implants because “life just ain’t worthing Primals, without a pump and a centerpiece six pack.” Let’s see what happens!!



Breakfast, lunch, and dinner back on track with the usual treatment: always getting down on the raw liver, and raw bone marrow... and of course, a full pound of fresh, raw bull testicles/day (since Jan 2nd… yes, still onnit!). Fresh blood, and fresh cream and colostrum when out at LK Ranch. See more on Liver King diet.

  • Breakfast:
    raw, shell-on, fertilized eggs from Liver King Ranch... Liver Queen's fermented cream, and whatever else LK Chef Lionel puts out for me in addition to the usual stack: Liver King Supplements... Liver King Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and of course, KING
  • Lunch:
    a bone-in piece of red meat, black coffee, and my usual staples... Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and KING. I won’t write this every week but I’ll say it again for everyone in the back… raw Liver, raw Testicles and raw Bone Marrow remain on the menu with all meals. 
  • Dinner:
    More crispy duck, and the usual: a delicious pound of cooked carnivore carcass (ribeyes, bone-in strips, bone-in ribs, beef cheeks, tongue, cheese beast burgers made with liver, heart, pancreas, spleen, kidney, and a little bit of muscle meat), testicle ceviche. Not just for the kiddos… back on the carbs (primal rice, sweet potatoes, Paul Bunyan's maple syrup, and sorghum syrup), and once again, my primal AF staples... Whole Feast Protein, Liver King Bar, and KING.
  • Recents:
    recent additions as of late have been eyeballs, and still planning on running Sorghum syrup as a whole food source of carbs (restarting this next week) and running DHT experiments (for MOOOAR!). Anything and everything food-related that’s a 5-alpha agonist is being selected for. NOTE: DHT is what real alpha Primals are after… It's inaccurately villainized as a propagator of hair loss, and prostate problems, but this topic is incredibly nuanced. Bottom line is DHT is King when it comes to androgens. Liver King DHT articles and videos forthcoming as part of the 126 Ways series.


  • 4 eyeballs/day
  • a cigar in the afternoons (against doctor’s orders), sometimes paired with a Primal Scotch (always earned)
  • 30-push ups every 30 minutes
  • 300-knuckle push-ups before dinner (under the sun, connected to the earth)
  • 1000+ band pull-aparts and/or several hundred face pulls


LK officially on HRT… testosterone cream and growth hormone, managed by a trained hormone clinician.

How is Liver King feeling since getting back on… truth is, I haven’t been feeling my best. Good! There’s opportunity to dominate.

In old news, Stryker turned 17, completed another “Barbarian” so we went out, had a party, had some Macallens. I made a toast…

It’s my job to challenge you… to put obstacles in your way, and teach you how to think of 126 ways to solve for any problem… To aim high… to know your WHYs… to take massive fucking action to strive and earn… because you are Stryker “The Barbarian.” I’m proud AF! — Dad 

As we sipped on the Macallans, I asked my boys how it tastes… they gave one or two word responses. We settled in, spent 15 minutes thinking and describing the taste of the Macallans, and the feelings shared in the moment. Use your words… develop your ideas… take the reps, and enjoy! Another round!


Wife has been blessing me with Shaman blessed flower, dipped in Shaman water from his holy grounds. She puts it over my eye, over my heart, and she nourishes me with her touch. This past week, we started prayers together. We’ve deepened our bond. Mooooar!

I'm not a social media influencer... 

I'm a man, father, husband and evolutionary hunter/aka, an entrepreneur that forged my net worth, a measure of self worth, in the fires of my failures...

I failed as a young man…

I failed as a dad… 

I failed as a husband, and… 

I've failed multiple times over as a CEO.

Every time it all came “crumbling down,” something greater has been built in its place...

It's called Progress... it's called MOOOOAR... it's called FUCKING Earning it!

With the power of a tribe and knowing my respective WHYs in the world, I fucking earned all currencies... 

The currency of life: measured in time, energy and attention, to take massive fucking action.

The least valuable currency... measured in financial units, and…

The most valuable currency of all... measured in family units.

Liver King Wrestles Alligator

Only one top predator can dominate at the LK Ranch… a fight to the death, and tasty dinner for the family. One of the perks of the job.

New LK email series launches Monday, Sept 25th
… “The Way of The Barbartian — 126 Ways to be a fucking man… to always stack the deck, dominate, and win… at life” 

I'm proud AF to say I led... myself, my boys, my Queen, and my professional teams, connecting and affirming my people/tribe with our WHY in the world, and with such worth and potential that they see it in themselves and express a higher form. All while CEO’ing my Tip of the Spear Companies, it’s called “strive mother fucker, strive!”
