Natty or Not
Today we’re having a very honest conversation about a frequent accusation - that athletes who look good, perform well, or both must be using performance enhancing drugs to get an edge. But before we tell you what is - or isn’t - in Marcus’s medicine cabinet, let’s look at what “natural” really means in the context of sport and daily health, the role of hard work and consistency, and the stigma of supplementation.
What Do I Eat? Well, Why Do You Ask?
We asked the question behind the very common question of what Marcus eats: why do so many people ask, and what takeaways are they applying for themselves? Make more sense of macros and calories with what goes into the formula - and what you can (and can’t) learn by example.
The Last Supper
You know the feeling - you start eating cookies and then you may as well eat them all, and get “back on track” tomorrow as if it’s the last cookies you’ll ever have. Why does it happen, and what helps? We’re digging into this common occurrence - and how to keep from falling off the cliff.
Tracking Macros: Awareness Vs. Change
When it comes to nutrition, the numbers often tell a different story than our perception of how much or little we eat, and whether our approach is working. Today we dig into the gap between what we think we know and what’s actually happening on the plate, and the difference in counting calories and macros to learn your defaults vs. moving toward a specific goal.
Crossing Over From CrossFit
Many athletes found Functional Bodybuilding after coming from the CrossFit world - because constantly varied training has its limits. What can you expect from Functional Bodybuilding that's different, and what's the same? We cover periodization, control points, and what those fancy moves on Instagram are all about.
Functional Bodybuilding & the Open
If you come from a CrossFit background you're likely familiar with the Open. Drawing on Marcus's extensive competitive and coaching background, we'll cover how Functional Bodybuilding intersects with the Open, who should definitely sign up, and what happens when you attempt an Open workout on zero sleep - plus a bonus tip for anyone hitting the workouts. Good luck!
