Dramatically Increase Flexibility and Mobility With This 6 Minute Warmup

My biggest weakness is lack of flexibility. I just can’t get myself to take the time to stretch. In fact, I hate stretching. About 3 months ago, Dan Go contacted me about a way to increase flexibility, improve posture, and increase exercise performance....

How Many Carbs Per Day to Lose Body Fat? It Depends…

If you’ve been involved in fitness for any length of time — as a coach, athlete, or general enthusiast — you’ve probably noticed two themes: 1. The relatively high percentage of d*cks within our industry that bash any approach that is not their own. 2. The seemingly never-ending debate about low-carb, higher fat vs. high carb, lower fat diets.

I’ll outline some solid principles in this post for those who want to lose weight without necessarily following a rigid diet year-round.

Squats and Deadlifts are Not the “King of Exercise” for a Lot of People.

I want to explain my stance on limiting the use of squats and deadlifts. I don’t believe they are terrible exercises.

Not by a mile.

How to Build Muscle If Your Joints Hurt

When I was first training back in the late 80’s I assumed that to build bigger muscles I would have to constantly lift heavier and heavier weights. To a certain extent that is true, but there are ways to make a lighter weight “work” your muscles much harder than normal.
