How Not To Be a Sucky Trainer x Infinity

Below is an excerpt of an interview I’m currently doing with fellow strength coach, Dean Somerset. I’m not going to beat around the bush; it’s 4:45 in the morning as I type this, and rather than try to be my witty self and come up with something well, witty, I figured I’d share just a… Read more

Sleep: It’s What’s For Dinner.

Note from TG: Like everyone else, I’ve been swamped with work lately. We’re busier than ever at the facility (never a bad thing). Hell, I love it. Moreover, I’ve been trying my best to stay consistent with the blog (thanks for reading by the way), and with the addition of a few more distance coaching… Read more

Registered Dietitian Quote of the Week: “Flax Seeds Are a Waste of Calories”

One of the many things I dig about my girlfriend – other than when she actually dressed up as Princess Leia the night we attended Star Wars in Concert last winter – is the fact that like me, fitness is a passion of hers. Some couples like to play Sudoko together. Other couples like to… Read more

NOTE: for those you… Read more

Are You Too Committed?

The other day I gave people an inside look into some of the books I’m either currently reading, or going to be reading sometime in the near future. One book, which admittedly I’ve been pimping quite a lot lately is Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior. You see, even when I read books that… Read more

Ever Wonder What I’m Reading? No? Well, You’re Going to Find Out Anyways.

Fellow colleague, t-nation contributor, and overall badass, John Romaniello, wrote a blog post last week expounding on some of the things he’s been reading as of late. A self proclaimed nerd, John’s a renaissance man of sorts and you’re just as likely to catch him playing World of Warcraft online on any given night as… Read more

Consistency and Accountability Part I

UPDATE: Apparently this blog didn’t go up yesterday due to some HTML glitch. I didn’t realize that was the case until this morning when someone pointed it out to me. Thanks random guy named Darren! As for the rest of you who didn’t feel the need to give me a heads up, you’re going to… Read more
