…their clients!

3. All About Fitness Podcast w/ Pete McCall

This was my second appearance on Pete’s show and this time around we discussed things like:

  • Training over 40 (you’re not over the hill, you can still get after it).
  • Biohacking and what the hell does that even mean?
  • Learning to lean in with societal norms and how both Pete and I have had to learn the hard way that our words matter.

You can check it out HERE.

Wait for it, wait for it….

Of course there’s more to unpack on an individual basis on everything I say below, but sometimes a dose of tough love is needed. . Posted @withrepost • @testosteronenation From coach Tony Gentilcore: The barrier to fat loss for most has little to do with education. It’s almost always about being an ass who doesn’t like taking accountability for his or her actions. People know what not to do. There’s something emotional that prevents them from doing it. It reminds me of something a friend of mine, Mark Young, said recently about clients of his who complain about his coaching style. Every now and then someone will chime in and say something like “nothing you have said is new to me, or something I couldn’t have done myself without paying you.” . “Well, were you doing it?” he’ll ask. It’s such a money response. . For some reason, people will hear the following: . • Make your own lunches to bring to work. • Pre-package your own meals ahead of time in your fridge. • Limit access to trigger foods that can make you overeat. • When in doubt, eat more protein. • Drink more water. • Eat your freaking vegetables, you child. . … and people who hear this will say stuff like, “That’s so simple. I already know all that!” . Okay, so do it. . — Tony Gentilcore @tonygentilcore . . #tnation #fatloss #diet #nutrition

The Case for Diet Soda: It Gets a Bad Rap, But the Research Tells a Different Story – Tamar Haspel

Of all the things people get all up in arms about when it comes to nutrition, it’s always perplexed me that DIET FUCKING SODA ranks as one of the highest.

The Kettlebell Swing: Timing Matters – “Wait For It! – Artemis Scantalides

Listen to Artemis.

She knows a thing or two about the swing…;o)

Functional Strength Coach 7 – Mike Boyle

TODAY (6/28) is your LAST day to take advantage of the Early Bird rate for Mike Boyle’s latest resource. It’s a fair assertion that no one has been more influential to more coaches in this industry than Mike.

You’re doing yourself a disservice if you’re a coach/personal trainer and NOT taking the time to learn from him.

Ultimate Landmine Program – Meghan Callaway

It’s also the LAST DAY  to purchase Meghan’s latest resource at a hefty discount as well. I’m a big fan of the Landmine and Meghan does a superb job outlining a bevy of exercises you can perform in addition to a well-written program to follow.

Check it out HERE.

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.
