In this episode, I talk about the importance of increasing 1RMs when trying to build muscle, my favorite piece of cardio equipment for home gyms, losing fat without losing muscle, and more! Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Questions on the show:

1. How important is increasing 1 RMs in the big lifts when the primary goal is to build muscle? 

2. If you had to choose one piece of cardio equipment for a home gym, what would you pick?

3. What is the best strategy for training, and nutrition to lose fat without losing muscle?

4. If all things are equal (height, weight, muscle insertions, etc.) what muscle group makes the biggest impact on one's physique?

5. When I diet it seems I am always hungry, do you have any tips or tricks to help?

In this episode, I sit down with former Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl Center Eric Wood. Eric was the 28th pick in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, and he went on to start all 120 games he played in over a 9-year career.

Topics covered during the show, Eric's path to the pros, what a week of preparation looks like during an NFL season, how he dealt with a career-ending injury, and more.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

When you hear the word rookie, what do you think? What initially pops into your head?

You probably think of a beginner or novice athlete, or someone in their first year on the job, like a rookie police officer.

Or, maybe you think of the baseball movie with Dennis Quaid, isn't that called The Rookie? It has been 15 years since I have seen it but, I thought it was pretty good. I am a sucker for a sports movie.

Regardless, when you hear the word rookie, you also probably think of the expression, "rookie mistake."

That is what we are going to focus on today, specifically, five rookie powerlifting mistakes.

1: Trying to hit unrealistically big PRs at the meet.
2: Doing too much or too little hypertrophy work.
3: Overvaluing the program.
4: Not competing frequently enough.
5: Not thinking enough about longevity.

Although I call these rookie mistakes, these mistakes are not limited to rookies.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
