339: How To Be Stronger Than Your Excuses

Tags:

I recently sent an email to my Fat Loss Fast Track clients asking them all a direct question: Are you a dropout? I wanted them to think hard about their level of effort and engagement while giving a lifeline to those who need some extra support & encouragement. I want to open the lines of communication with every single one of the FLFTers so we can make the rest of ...Read More

Year of Push 3.7 Use Your Butt

Tags:

How you do things matters. It's a huge mistake to focus primarily on what you do at the expense of improving and paying attention to how you do it. How you do things determines whether it's easy, hard and/or sustainable. Let me use working out as an example. Doing a deadlift without bracing your core will fatigue you quickly, put unnecessary strain on your back and increase your risk of injury. ...Read More

337: 6 Changes We All Need To Make

Tags:

I rarely make blanket recommendations. When I talk about nutrition, I'm quick to say that strategies depend on your goals. When I talk about nutritional improvements, I'm quick to consider someone's baseline. I'm not going to recommend the Golden Rules of Carbs & Fat Loss to someone who is currently eating fast food & candy every day. It would probably be too big a transition for them, right now. I ...Read More

331: Carbs And Fat Loss

Tags:

There is way too much confusion about carbohydrates. Too many people lump them all in the same category and act as if grams of carbs or calories are the only relevant factor. That's not the case. Others act as if all carbs are "bad" - also not the case. Some suggest that carbs are essential and even when pursuing fat loss we should consume multiple servings of quality carbs each ...Read More

Year of Push 2.24 Fasting?

Tags:

I am fasting this weekend. I've talked about fasting & my experience with it on the podcast - I even did a 5 day fast a couple months ago. I was incredibly unsure of my desire and ability to complete a 5-day fast but it was one of the best experiences I've had in any health pursuit. It gave me a valuable new perspective on hunger and taught me important ...Read More

327: Vitamins, Supplements & Shakes

Tags:

Are vitamins and supplements worth it? Are they important? Do they make a difference? And how do you know which ones are good and which ones aren't? Rarely does a day go by when I don't get some variation of these questions. I've been on both sides of this conversation. Prior to starting Primal Potential I worked for a dietary supplement company and worked to both formulate & market protein ...Read More

Year of Push 2.18 I’m Not Competing

Tags:

Yay for lessons! Today brought a great one. Sure, it's one I already knew & one I teach my FLFT clients all the time, but as with all lessons, we have to learn them over and over. Today, I re-learned. I'm so grateful for a good friend giving me a powerful truth. My workout was brutal today. It was a combination of being a little sore & tired from yesterday ...Read More

Year of Push 2.17 Mind Wandering

Tags:

Happy Tuesday, friends! I was in bed at 9p last night and happily bounced out of bed at 5am today. I got in a couple hours of work before heading to the gym early. I planned some time to work one-on-one with a coach on improving my toes-to-bar form. It's not something I've worked on much and I know I'll improve more quickly with focused coaching than by practicing on ...Read More
