Lifting Heavy and Staying Injury Free: Interview on

Share This:

A few weeks ago I had the honor of being asked to take part in an interview for the website – a health and fitness site created by Marc Perry which caters to busy professionals and helps provide ammunition to lead a lean, fit, and strong life.

While many people resort to snorting cheese vapors from an empty Doritos bag as “low carb” and view taking the stairs rather than the escalator as exercise, Marc and his team of fitness experts have built a site (and system) which has helped countless people and has gained a lot of notoriety within the fitness community.

With over one-million visitors (and growing) to their site each and every month, it stands to reason they’re doing something right.

Now, with a name like BuiltLean it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their M.O is helping to get people’s sexification on. In other words:  the deal almost exclusively in fat loss.

Normally I roll my eyes at stuff like this because a fat loss site is a fat loss site is a fat loss site.

Moreover, typically what happens is the theme music from Jaws starts reverberating inside my head because almost inevitably I’ll be asked questions like, “so, um, what are you thoughts on Paleo?”

Which is why it was such a breath of fresh air when that wasn’t the road taken.  Thank god. These guys (and girls) take more of a well-rounded approach and understand that “fat loss” isn’t just about caloric restriction and exercising until you’re swimming in a pool of your own sweat.

Instead I was asked non sequitur things like:

1. Why I feel getting stronger and placing a premium on strength is often the missing link for most people.

2. Why I think the same train of thought applies towards women as well.

3. Why I just about destroyed the back of my pants upon learning that Disney plans to release the next Star Wars movie on December 18, 2015.

Note to Self:  be sure to drop Jedi cloak off at dry-cleaners after work.

In short: it was just awesome to see a site

Nevertheless, I had a BLAST doing this interview and I think all of you will enjoy it as well since it’s equal parts me being me and actually providing some good information. Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Tony talks lifting heavy things, women training, and yes, there’s a reference to zombies and bacon….

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
