Shoulder day in the gym with Chris. In todays podcast we are trying out a new approach to the episodes. Its my idea to be able to record podcasts out in the world where conversations can be more candid. While working out it is one of the times I have some of the more candid conversations with people. So it is fitting that this is where I test this approach. Like all new things there are a few bugs with this episode. The major bug that stands out right away is Chris has now mic audio. Enjoy.
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.
Today we are in what will be the new podcast studio, and talking about eliminating negative energy.
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.
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.
Eating out is not cheap by any stretch. Today I talk a little about how I am approaching eating out in 2019 and what goes through my mind when Im asked about going to eat out. Eating out is not cheap by any stretch. It can add up really fast. Last month my wife and I took a look at the finances after out winter vacation and we were surprised at how much money we spent on food alone. Now i’m not talking about groceries. Im talking fast food as well as bad foods like muffins from Costco and donuts. looking at the money you can save by cutting out those weekday lunch runs can be a huge tip in the scale for you financially as well as with your health.
Today I take the podcast on the road (literally) with an in car podcast. I have tried time after time to get a podcast I can be happy with while in the car but road noise among other things have always held me back. As I continue to learn how to edit and what will ultimately be acceptable in my book I will keep trying.
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.
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.
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.
Quickie random cast today tasing about an awesome leg day session at the gym.
Today on the podcast I spend some time talking about the company/ product Revital U. For those of you unfamiliar this is a coffee product that claims to give you more energy as well as aid in weight loss. One of the reasons I am taking time to speak about this so because it is another MLM or multi level marketing company with “brand influencers” taking to social media. I am not selling this product nor do I recommend people get involved with a MLM. If you are a seller or you do like MLM structures companies this by all means “do you”

Back again on the podcast we have Macho Camacho Fitness. Fitness enthusiasts, motivator, and cancer survivor Mr Camacho shares on this podcast his current workout routine.
Back again with guest coach Heidi. Today we talk a little about crossfit as well networking with your local fitness community. Working with others can definitely help you to grow in your brand as well as on your fitness journey. In the personal trainer community it can often feel like it is a dog eat dog business but there are so many potential clients who may be on the fence about getting fit. When they see local fitness motivators and trainers working together it can inspire someone to take that first step into becoming a better version of themselves. As always be sure and check out coach Heidi on her Instagram as well as her website. She offers online coaching as well as personal training.
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.
