    Ep. 60: The Case for Building Muscle

    Progress stalled? Stuck on a training plateau for weeks, months, or longer? 

    If you're into strength training but have hit a serious snag, the fix may NOT be more of the same strength training you've been doing, but rather steering in a slightly different direction - namely muscle building.

    Ep. 58: Make America GAIT Again!

    Ep. 58: Make America GAIT Again!
