Bodybuilding has a long history as a physique transformation tool. Tales of Eugen Sandow lifting and flexing go back as far as the late 1800s. You can even follow along throughout history and read about how bodybuilders such as Steve Reeves, John Grimek, Reg Park, Arnold, Franco, Dorian, and Ronnie, trained and dieted. Learning the best practices of each era is fascinating.

I would call the past decade the "evidence-based era." As more research around training and nutrition becomes available, it shapes our thought process on what the rules of bodybuilding are. In today's episode, we dig into the new rules of bodybuilding. What are the current best practices for determining training volume, rep ranges, and how often you should go to failure? How important is beating the logbook? What are the best exercises for building muscle, and is there a better way to cut and bulk? Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, the topic of discussion is the effectiveness of using a bodybuilding routine for general fitness and the most important variables to track for efficient results in the gym. 

When discussing general fitness, first we need to define what that means. Of course, it will be different for everyone, but to me, it comes down to four qualities: body composition, strength, cardiovascular health, and longevity. Is bodybuilding the best method for developing those four qualities? What about other fitness modalities, is there a better way? 

We have all heard the expression "what gets measured, gets managed," but when it comes to fitness, what should we measure? 

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Patience is one of the fundamental truths of training as a natural athlete. Without the use of anabolic steroids, you have to do a lot of things right, over a long time, to make serious gains. Dedication, desire, and discipline are all prerequisites but alone are not enough. Maximizing progress requires giving yourself every advantage possible. It’s paramount to follow a well-constructed training program, get adequate rest and recovery, sleep eight or more hours per night, and spend as much time in a caloric surplus or at least maintenance as possible.

Building muscle is hard. It’s even harder without adequate calorie intake. Luckily, the caloric surplus doesn’t need to be large. The days of “dirty bulking” are over. The truth is, only a few hundred extra calories per day will do the trick, but there are no shortcuts in physiology. Even a small to moderately sized caloric surplus will eventually result in the accumulation of body fat.

So, how do we balance building muscle and strength optimally, without getting too fat? And, how do we avoid sabotaging our progress by spending too much time in a caloric deficit? As you may have assumed from the title, this is where mini-cuts enter the picture. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Over the years, I find myself thinking more and more about the basics. The truth is if you have been around fitness for a few years, it's likely you know everything you need to know to achieve outstanding results. Even a quick flip through one of my beginner books will provide enough information for years of progress.

The problem is, there is a bit of joy in thinking you are not privy to the truth, that a lack of information is what's holding you back. If only you knew about the secret supplement, exercise, or "advanced" training technique.

The abundance of information available today plays into this. There are always new podcasts, articles, videos, etc. to check out. It's easy to have fitness FOMO.

Look, I love that there is so much fitness information available today. I wish I had access to it when I started. But, the point to remember is, nothing replaces the work. The content most of us should be chasing is how to develop good habits, master the fundamentals, and consistently work hard. If you do that, the results will speak for themselves.

Dave Draper has an awesome quote in his book Brother Iron Sister Steel, "The simple and commonplace, due to their ordinary nature, are almost always reduced in importance and misplaced."

Brother Iron, Sister Steel is what we are going to talk about today.  In chapter two of the book, he lays out the following six keys. He actually called it the six keys to bodybuilding success, but bodybuilding in a more general sense. All of these tips apply to fitness as a whole. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Powerlifting has undergone a tremendous transformation in recent years. When I started lifting weights in the early 2000s, the perception around the sport was incredibly different than it is today. Not only that, how powerlifters prepared was very different as well. In today's episode, I talk about these changes and what you need to do to keep up with the times! Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Questions on the show:

  1. My question is about training through pain. When you should, when you shouldn’t? I have tennis elbow, should I just do bands or machines for rehab? It hurts anytime I do deadlifts, rows, and curls.
  2. Intra workout carbs. Thoughts on usefulness and implementation?
  3. What is the best and most challenging moment in your fitness journey so far?
  4. When does it become important to add in assistance exercises like front squat or close grip bench press?
  5. Is it as important to be in a caloric surplus for strength gains as it is for muscle growth?
  6. What are your thoughts on fitness trackers? I have been thinking about getting a Whoop Strap.
  7. A question about CrossFit – Since there is a lot to balance, conditioning, gymnastics, Olympic lifting, and strength training, how would you recommend breaking up your sessions? For example, would you do conditioning in the morning and lifting at night?
  8. What have you added to your training within the last year that made a big difference?
  9. Who if anyone did you look up to or follow when you first started working out?
  10. What are your thoughts on Supersets? Are they effective if so, how would you set them up?
  11. What are your top 3 favorite shows of all time?
  12. Will there be an NFL season this year?
  13. Who do you have this weekend at UFC 251, Usman, or Masvidal?

In this episode, I sit down with Dr. Sebastian Gonzales to talk about what to do if you experience back pain from lifting weights. Lower back pain is one of the most common issues people who lift weights have to endure. We have all been there. It can happen while pulling a heavy deadlift or reaching down to pick up a pencil, either way, back pain is no fun. The moments immediately after are critical. What is the first thing to do in the gym once it happens? What do you do the next morning? How can you tell if you need medical treatment? Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, I go over 5 mistakes I made when I first got into training that you should avoid. When I was younger, I ate too much protein, did too much "junk volume", was a "chronic dieter", didn't emphasize performance enough, and did not use good technique. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, I talk about Myo Reps and the book titled "Myo Reps The Secret Norwegian Method to Build Muscle in 70% Less Time" by Borge Fagerli. The book is a free pdf download you can get here: https://borgefagerli.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Myo-reps-E-book.pdf

From Borge, "Myo-reps is, simplistically speaking, a rest-pause method and the most famous permutation of it is DC/Doggcrapp training. Most of you probably know how to perform a rest-pause set, and I didn’t just reinvent the wheel here, I refined it building on research on hypertrophy in recent years."

Here is how I set up Myo Reps:

  • 1 set x 12-25 reps @9-10 RPE [Activation Set]
  • Rest 3-5 big breaths between sets [5-15 seconds]
  • 3-5 sets x 3-5 reps or 25-50% of Activation Set [Myo Reps]

Myo Reps are best done with assistance movements. My favorites are push-ups, pull-ups, dips, dumbbell bench press, barbell curls, dumbbell side raises, etc. I recommend doing 1-2 exercises with Myo Reps in a workout.

Q5: I listened to your last episode on the USDA food guide and it got me thinking. If you were in charge, what nutrition information would be taught in schools across America?

Q6: What is your general recommendation for warm-up sets? As you are working up to your set weight, how many reps are you doing?

Q7: With the uncertainty of powerlifting meets scheduled in the future, when do you think it’s a reasonable time to plan to compete next?

Q8: Do you think conditioning equipment like assault bikes and rowers can build muscle?

Q9: How fast can someone realistically expect strength to come back once gyms open?

Q10: I have a ten-year-old son who has become more interested in working out since I have been training at home during this pandemic. What type of workout program would you recommend for him?
