In this episode, I sit down with American Top Team Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Phil Daru. Phil has worked with multiple world champions as a strength coach for fighters such as Joanna Jedrzejczyk, King Mo Lawal, Tecia Torres, Dustin Poirier, Amanda Nunes, all at the world famous American Top Team. One of the major talking points on the show was how to balance the Strength and Conditioning of fighters with the different demands MMA training presents - striking, wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu, etc. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, I talk about 7 reasons why you are not losing weight or fat. For most people, it's not a lack of information that is holding them back the most. On the surface level, most people know how to 'diet". It's the little things that create the most problems - a sedentary lifestyle, untracked eating, not navigating restaurants and celebrations correctly, lack of patience, and more. This is a long one so sit back, relax and enjoy!
