  • Never Eat Sweets Alone
    on May 20, 2019 at 6:35 PM

    The only avenue for change is a willingness to stand against the insanity that currently entrenches most in lifelong nutrition-related strife. In my last piece, I looked at how social norms, manners, and shame have successfully guided cultural behavior with far more fluidity, elegance, and success than legal intervention. read mor […]

  • Fencing: The Sport You Should Be Doing
    on May 18, 2019 at 11:01 PM

    Sometimes we overlook things such as fighting hard mano y mano, mental toughness and strategy, graceful technique, and longevity. NYU has taught me a lot and one of those things were, sports needn’t be concussion-inducing, ego inflating, and have a retirement age of 45 to be considered legit. Sometimes we overlook things such as fighting hard mano y mano, mental toughness and strategy, graceful technique, and longevity.   read mor […]

  • 28 Day Anti-Fragile Human Challenge
    on May 17, 2019 at 8:45 PM

    This challenge will offer a clear daily adversity that stokes your capacity to act while introducing you to a variety of training methods. Humans are anti-fragile by nature. The concept of anti-fragility is not that we deflect attacks like a Gore-tex repels water, but that we, in fact, need resistance to grow stronger. Humanity is not totally activated, empowered, or fulfilled without challenge. Resistance activates us and breeds human flourishing. This is the backbone of all training. Resistance and adaptation. read mor […]

  • Effort Determines Outcome
    on May 15, 2019 at 9:58 PM

    A correctly designed program with all the right exercises and sets and reps is only half the story. The other half is the effort you put in. Have you been working out with the goal to get bigger?   You have read the latest articles on what the best training program is to meet your goal and after six weeks have little to show for it. Does this sound familiar?   read mor […]

  • Learning to Fight
    on May 14, 2019 at 10:12 PM

    Dealing with life’s beatdowns head on builds resilience and defines what it means to be human. “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” Sun Tzu   Except for a couple of scraps in high school and college, I never got in a real fight as a kid. In fact, not only did I not have to fight for anything literally, figuratively speaking, I was almost never uncomfortable during my childhood.   read mor […]

  • Developing Strength One Leg at a Time
    on May 14, 2019 at 9:25 PM

    Take the time, build the single leg strength, and pistols will come, too. If I had a dollar for every time a client asked me to “show me how to do a pistol,” I could go on a pretty decadent 5-star vacation.   read mor […]

  • 6 Exercises to Fire Up Your Glutes
    on May 13, 2019 at 8:57 PM

    Your butt is the biggest muscle in your body. If trained properly, it should also be the strongest. Your glutes—gluteus maximus (your ass)—is the biggest, most powerful muscle on your body. It has been granted with important jobs, such as keeping your body erect, as well as smaller jobs like walking up stairs. Despite its size and importance, many of us have underdeveloped glutes. Some people even think their glutes are completely “shut off” (a concern I hear from clients).   read mor […]

  • Auto-Regulation, HRV, and the Unplugged Approach
    on May 12, 2019 at 6:06 PM

    The take-home message here is simple: sometimes you have to be willing to listen to your body and back off. Every strength has its weakness. My best talent, if you could call it that, is that I follow-through. When I decide to do something—earn a certification, wake daily to a morning flow, take a cold shower every morning, etc. I do it. I’ve now done five-minutes of non-stop 1 arm kettlebell swings every week for nearly two years. Every time I dread it, but I’m always glad I did it.   read mor […]

  • Fit to Fight Sleep Apnea
    on May 9, 2019 at 5:30 PM

    The reality is, 80 percent of people who have sleep apnea don’t know it. When we think about sleep apnea, we usually consider it a fat man’s disease.   Turns out, this isn’t the case: Overweight men are just the most likely to be diagnosed with sleep apnea because their snoring symptoms cause doctors to take a closer look.   The reality is, 80 percent of people who have sleep apnea don’t know it. And it is believed that 9 percent of women are affected by sleep apnea to one degree or another.   read mor […]

  • Ditch the Rigid Meal Plan
    on May 8, 2019 at 8:37 PM

    Often, when people fall off their meal plan, not only do they feel like a failure they also have no idea what they should eat and then, all hell really breaks loose.   After two years of coming to the gym four days a week and not losing a single pound, my client approached me utterly frustrated.   read mor […]
