In today’s episode Chris returns to the podcast to talk about training. More specifically training with purpose. If your goal is to make gains for a sport or you find yourself on the road towards joining the 1000 pound club your training should be tailored and with purpose.
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.
Back in the gym working on some legs and trying out Rogues safety bar.
Becoming a brand ambassador can be an appealing thing for some on social media. however is it really worth selling a product with the intent to make a commission to your followers? During the time when posting with products is no longer considered selling out but rather a form of legitimizing yourself what’s the reality of being a brand ambassador. In todays episode I talk about Kora fitness apparel. They are a company who donates a portion of their product sales to one of four charities that you the buyer can choose from. The cloths look nice on the site however this is not a product review but rather a look into becoming a brand ambassador. This is also not a shot against Kora nor is it praising their products. They popped up on my social media radar and I am simply using them as an example to analyze and ask questions. Thank you guys for your continued support of the podcast and enjoy.
Drink a case of beer every night and they will say you have a drinking problem. Eat fast food every day for lunch and they will ask to go with you next time. Where do you draw the line with food. do you demonize eating in excess or do you justify eating out more than once a weed because of convienence? Lets talk about it?
Today we're talking juice. Well celery juice to be specific. Is it beneficial, why do you juice, and more. My wife and I started in on this celery juicing thing at the beginning of the year. I got into it as a means of support as well as to try something new that is health related. Will it work? does it work? i’m not sure but even if there is a shift in my approach towards health and dieting then it will have done something positive.
Consistency is key in any endeavor. When it comes to fitness you have to make it apart of your life in order to yield results.
Strict OHP (overhead press) breakdown on todays podcast. Talking about the importance as well as the things you should think about to improve your press.
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.
On todays podcast I talk a little about how I save time in the gym, maximize my workouts, and improve social media productivity.
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.
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.
