Motivation Monday: Excuses or Progress: Choose One

1/15/2018
More
This episode is part of a weekly series that I have dubbed “Motivation Monday.” (Yes, I know, very creative of me. What can I say, I’m a genius…) Seriously though, the idea here is simple: Every Monday morning, I’m going to post a short and punchy episode that I hope gets you fired up to tackle the workouts, work, and everything else that you have planned for the week ahead. As we all know, it’s one thing to know what you want to do, but it’s something else altogether to actually make...

Do Nitric Oxide Supplements Work? An Evidence-Based Review

1/12/2018
More
Nitric oxide supplements hit the bodybuilding scene about a decade ago, and they hit the ground running. The first one to make waves was called “NO2.” It became an overnight bestseller, and was quickly followed by a pile of “me too” products, which only served to further ratchet up the nitric oxide hype. People were saying it’s the next creatine. A natural and safe alternative to steroids, even. It could help you gain muscle and strength faster, we were told, as well as significantly...

The Top 5 Proven Ways to Build Muscle Faster

1/11/2018
More
“You have to change up your workouts more.” “You have to eat more protein.” “You have to increase your time under tension.” “You have to use more/less weight in your training.” If you’re looking for advice on building muscle, you’ve probably heard plenty of one-liners like those. If you keep looking, you’ll hear a lot more. And, after it all, you’ll probably wind up like most people–confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed by a sea of contradictory tips, “hacks,” strategies, and shortcuts,...

The Simple Science of Carb Cycling

1/10/2018
More
I don’t know about you, but I like simple. And here’s a simple fact for you: You don’t need to do anything particularly special or fancy to build the body of your dreams. At least 80% of the game is just understanding and applying a relatively small number of physiological principles related to diet and exercise. And I’d go as far as saying that the majority of what’s left is just patience and persistence. You don’t need convoluted training programs or diets. You need...

Here's Why You Should Read "The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing"

1/5/2018
More
If you want a short but fantastic primer on the basics of good marketing, including the primary goal of marketing, the fundamentals of good branding, product creation, advertising, and more, then you want to read this book. One of the reasons I like it so much is it’s concerned more with high-level thinking than tactical application, and strives to give you principles that you can extrapolate into many types of actionables. In this way, much of its advice is universal and timeless. I’m...

How to Get Rid of Stomach Bloating in 5 Simple Steps

1/4/2018
More
You’ve been eating right. Exercising regularly. Drinking water and even taking your vitamins. Why the hell, then, is your stomach so bloated all the time? Why do you look three months pregnant if you don’t suck your stomach in? Why does eating make it look like you’re carrying twins? Why does your skin feel like a waterlogged sponge? If any of these questions have been echoing around in your head, I understand. Bloating is incredibly frustrating because it seems to come and go without...

How Wendy Got Her Best Body Ever In Just 90 Days

1/3/2018
More
In this episode, I interview Wendy Dinkins, who’s a recent graduate of my 90-day transformation coaching service, which helped her cut fat, gain muscle and strength, and significantly transform the shape of her body in just a few months. Before finding her way to me and my work, she had been working out for years and had tried many different things, and most recently had spent 9 months working with an in-person trainer only to see no real change in her body. At that point, she was...

1/2/2018
More
If your goal is to get or stay lean and maintain your cardiovascular health, you don’t have to grind out a single long session of grueling cardio. Ever. That’s right… - No boring jogs. - No droning away on one of the hamster wheels in the gym. - No sacrificing hours and hours every week. In fact, if you know what you’re doing (and you will by the end of this episode), you can get a lot more out of doing a lot less cardio than you think. If you know what you’re doing with your diet,...

What Are the 3 Best & Worst Nootropic Supplements?

12/29/2017

In this episode I interview Kurtis Frank about one of his favorite topics, nootropics, or “brain boosters.” Chances are you don’t know of Kurtis, but you probably know of his work. He’s the co-founder of Examine.com, which is the premier resource on the Internet for learning about the science of supplementation. Today, it boasts guides on over 500 supplements containing over 41,000 scientific citations, and Kurtis was responsible for researching, compiling, and writing the vast majority of...

The Big Problem With Visceral Fat (and How to Lose It)

12/28/2017
More
“How the hell can I be this skinny with a stomach this big and fat?” That’s the first line from an email I received earlier this week. And it inspired this episode. You see, I’ve worked with thousands of men and women and if there’s one thing that frustrates people most, it’s having too much belly fat. I’ve written quite a bit about how to lose belly fat, but visceral fat deserves its own treatment because it’s a different beast than the run-of-the-mill ab fat. So, in this episode we’re...

Research Review: Dr. Eric Helms on Combining Cardio & Weightlifting

12/27/2017
More
As you probably know, I work hard to understand and promote high-quality diet, nutrition, and exercise science. That’s why I’ve spent and continue to spend a lot of time researching and writing, and why I reference quite a bit of scientific literature in my work. What I don’t do, though, is produce a research review where individual studies are broken down and analyzed because my plate is already overflowing with work as it is, and honestly, I don’t think I could do it better than the...

My Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Message For You

I know some people (commies) believe you shouldn’t say this anymore but . . . MERRY FREAKIN’ CHRISTMAS . . . and happy holidays! I hope you’re having a fantastic time with the people you both love and tolerate (often one and the same, no?) and are ready to enjoy a good few weeks of “refeeding” . . . wink wink . . . :-) For my part, I am currently in the cold, northern reaches of Germany, where my wife and her family are from. And, yes, that means I’m surrounded by some of the most...

What Should You Eat Before Working Out?

12/21/2017
More
One of the first pieces of bodybuilding advice I was given was on pre-workout nutrition. If I didn’t eat protein and carbs immediately before training, I was told, I’d miss an opportunity to accelerate muscle growth, if not directly hinder it. And so I did, before every workout, without fail. Chances are you’ve heard the same things. Bodybuilders and gymbros alike have been singing pre-workout nutrition’s praises for decades. How important is it really, though? Does eating before...

Michael Moss on the "Dark Side" of Food Science

12/20/2017
More
This interview is about the processed food industry, which generates a trillion dollars in sales every year and specializes in creating inexpensive, highly processed foods that are hyper-palatable and hyper-gratifying. Thanks mainly to the advances of food science, they’ve mastered the art of making foods and beverages that can “hit the spot” in ways that natural, nutritious foods never will, which is why their products are much harder to resist and much easier to overeat. Michael gives...

What Are the 3 Best & Worst Pre-Workout Supplements?

It’s cold and dark at six in the morning. And it seems even colder and gloomier when you have to get up and train. At that hour, it’s like gravity has tripled. Your eyes droop, your limbs drag, and your nervous system is running on fumes. It’s time like these that you thank the gods you have a pre-workout supplement. You fumble the top off, mix a (heaping) scoop in water, gulp it down, and the magic begins. Fifteen minutes later you feel like the star of the latest Marvel flick, ready...

Hang around in the gym long enough and you’re going to hear about clenbuterol. Like steroids, “clen” is extremely popular in the world of bodybuilding and is the “go-to” cutting drug for many of the people that step on stage. Thus, it’s not surprising that it’s also a hot commodity among the general fitness crowd. If you want to shred fat as quickly as possible without losing muscle, the pitch goes, then you want to hop on the clenbuterol train. Or do you? Poke around on the Internet...
