Stuff to Check Out Before You Read Stuff

1. Oh, Hello

Meet Han Gandalf Gentilcore Julian Lewis Gentilcore. Born 1/31/17 at 12:22 PM.

Lisa and I are so happy, excited, and tired….;o) Lisa, by the way, was a CHAMPION. Thanks to everyone who sent well-wishes via email, social media, and texts.

And so it begins…..

2. Appearance on Ben Coomber Radio

I had the pleasure of being invited onto the Ben Coomber Radio Show recently.

In typical fashion I was witty, intelligent, and cunning. But that’s just my own assessment. Ben’s a pro and has one of the most successful health/fitness podcasts over in the UK. We dive right into things and start talking about “effective” gym training. At about 30 minutes, it’s the perfect thing to listen to on your commute. Or to pass time as your significant other watches The Bachelor/Walking Dead (depending on gender).

3. Latest article on 4 Push-Up Mistakes You’re Making

Despite it’s popularity and recognition as an exercise staple, nothing gets more eye-rolls when I plan them into a program (especially from guys) than push-ups.

Stop being a nimrod and do them right…..HERE.

Social Media Hightlights



My new favorite tricep exercise. KB Tricep Extension w/ Roll. Got the idea originally from @dr.joelseedman_ahp when he explained the advantage of using the KBs allow for more ROM. Here I perform a 3s eccentric on the way down then “roll” the elbows forward before pressing back up to the starting position. Perform these for 8-12 reps and you’ll love it.

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.
