If you feel you have too little time to dedicate towards preparing your food, this list is for you. It’s not an exhaustive list but should be an easy starting point for people new to creating more structure in their diet. You don’t necessarily need to weigh everything you eat but you must adjust your goals and expectations when you have a more relaxed approach. If you’re working with a professional you must also realize they can’t provide you with ...Continue Reading →
Creating a lifestyle change, altering eating habits, waking up earlier to get workouts in can all be intimidating and challenging to anyone in the beginning. Instead of aggressively jumping in with both feet you may feel the need for modest baby steps to adjust to these transitions.
After training hundreds of clients over the years I can assure you that’s the last position you want to take! The path of least resistance is not always best. When you seek out a ...Continue Reading →
Exercise and eating healthy have become a large part of our daily life. We all know how important the balance of these two are, yet find ourselves falling into an exercise excuse trap. Exercise is important if you’re looking for long-term weight control success and you need to train your brain as well as your body to remain healthy.
Everyone considers their excuses to be valid, but they can become roadblocks ...Continue Reading →
Clients often ask me whether they should use protein powder supplements and if so, which one? As with all my answers, it usually “depends”.
Nearly every client I’ve ever had comes in with a pretty low protein intake. This can be rectified by adding a good 4-8 ounces of protein with your 3-5 meals per day depending on your current body weight. If that’s difficult to do, you hate most protein, you don’t consume meat/eggs, etc then protein powders are a ...Continue Reading →
As an additional service I’m working on for existing clients along with the upcoming online training clients (when it’s released) I will be providing a “Scientific Studies” section in DropBox…
Just some tidbits below on GMO’s from the “Scientific Studies” section I’m working on in DropBox. My attempt will be to keep everything relative to human health, performance, nutrient levels, etc…Basically how it would relate to dieting and/or exercise. My intent is to keep the information restricted to just whats relative ...Continue Reading →
It’s taken longer than I anticipated and have been dealing with internet issues at the gym since the first of May but the strength training templates are finally DONE! I’ve also written out a FAQ sheet that will be available for each template I design. This will be made available in DropBox along with some scientific studies, how to’s, and whatever else I think may be worth adding.
It will be necessary to read these FAQ’s in their entirety to ...Continue Reading →
Three months worth of workout programming towards the online personal training men’s strength templates have now been finished. One more months worth then on to the females.
The original online personal training templates will be designed for male/female strength, male/female fat loss, and a more generic varied template simply geared towards adherence. Over time I’ll probably add some more options but to get things going those will be the 5 groups targeted.
The app will also have a number of features. All ...Continue Reading →
Video below. 370×6 and left 3-4 reps in the tank. During this cycle of strength training (while maintaining my weight) I’ve significantly reduced volume and switched from working out 5 times per week to 4.
The most overlooked variable in all of strength training I believe is adequate recovery. Proper sleep, adequate intake, and proper training volume to avoid accumulating unnecessary fatigue.
Less than 3 weeks ago after a long cutting diet and super high volume training block these 345 sumo ...Continue Reading →
