In todays episode I answer those that ask where i’ve been in regards to the gym or my lack of presence on social media.
Scams and fitness influencers. Brittany Dawn is the latest in the social media headlines for selling cookie cutter meal plans and workout routines to her followers.
What is up you guys today we are talking about the fitness company Peloton. They sell a spin cycle and a treadmill as well as a fitness app if you don’t want to spend the money or have a cycle or tree of your own. So who is this device for, is it worth the money, and what do we think about it?
Accepting failure can be a tricky concept to adjust to as a lifter. In todays podcast I touch a little on what failure means to me in the gym. Failure is your wall, your new hill to overcome, your limitation. When you look at failure on a lift like this you can analyze and find a way to train around it, build up weak areas, and ultimately overcome that failure. I believe everyone should fail a lift. It is a humbling experience that can make sure the biggest progress you might not even think about and that is self defeat. Before we even approach the bar our head is flooded with thoughts of failure. During the lift these thought find their companion “excuses” ultimately leading you to sometimes bail out when you could have pushed through.
You might be interested in getting into shape or back into the gym after a long break. As a first timer the gym can feel like a daunting experience with all of the equipment and people who look like they know what they are doing. All of these things can make it hard to get back into the swing of things or even to get started as a newbie. In todays podcast I go over a few reasons why you might be a prime candidate for a personal trainer even if you feel you don’t fit the bill. As always thank you guys for your continued support of the podcast. There will be more content being uploaded in the next coming weeks. I am currently looking to release three podcasts a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays so be sure to subscribe.
Networking with others. It can be in life, work, and even the gym. Networking with others can be a powerful technique in growing as an individual. I try to work with a wide variety of people in the gym. along my fitness journey these people have motivated me and helped me to grow while on this journey. Thank you guys again for all the continued support and enjoy.
Relying on others to motivate you into going to the gym and why this isn’t the best for you. When on your fitness journey you need to learn to go at it alone. Getting a membership with someone may be nice or even financially beneficial but if the reason you go depends on if someone else does then you are off to a bad start and failure to commit will soon follow. This isn’t to say having a workout partner is a bad thing or to bash those who encourage you. This is to affirm the notion that this is a lifestyle and that going alone should be just apart of your life as anything else you do solo. Thank you guys again for your continued support and enjoy.

Living the dad life and once again on that broken sleep schedule. In todays episode I take the podcast outdoors with my oldest son as I talk a little about my training and lack of sleep with a newborn in the house. As always thank you guys for listening and providing positive feedback. Maintaining the energy for the gym without cheating my family out of the energy they deserve from me can be hard. With our newborn my wife and I are once again going through those sleepless nights. A few of my workouts have suffered due to this but for the most part as each day passes I find that my body is adapting. I could not imagine nor would i recommend maintaining this type of schedule long term but for the most part it isn’t as tough as I had thought it would be during those first few weeks.
Fitness talk with coach Heidi. In todays episode I sit down with coach Heidi. She is a fitness motivator and personal trainer in the local area. I came across her Instagram and was fortunate to have her as a guest on todays show.
Lifting with bad form can get you a one way ticket to snap city. In todays episode returning guest Justin Groth to give his take on poor lifting habits. Lifting healthy and safe should be the goal of every athlete but sometimes ego can cloud our judgment for the worst.
Dealing with a bad day at the gym can be one of the hardest things. In today’s podcast I talk a little bit about how I got through a bad workout session in the gym. I feel that it’s important to at least go through the motions even if you don’t complete your work out as intended. You can do things like lift that half a percentage of the weight you had planned on doing or tune out and get some cardio in. I feel that workout is better than no work out at all.
Today’s podcast is a leg day update. I’ve incorporated some new movements in my leg day workouts, and with these changes there’s been some progression as well as some things that I will not be continuing to do in my work out.
