I'll be covering topics from proper exercise, nutrition, longevity, but also things like music, philosophy and anything and every thing that contributes to maximizing life quality!
A Chat with Jerome Armstrong....
Jerome and I are both preparing for a bodybuilding competition of this recording. Jerome in November 2023 and myself in April 2024.
Please note these are both fully natural drug tested contests.
Together we go through a powerpoint presentation that he did on his youtube channel... I will link to it.... also, I'll include the youtube version link of this conversation as on audio, obviously you will not see the slides...
We got so into into it, that we started with a plan to last an hour and we went for over two!
Hope you find informative....
Here is link to youtube version:

A Conversation with Daniel Thompson Certified Superslow Instructor
In this second instalment, Daniel and I cover a wide range of topics, some of which deal with what truly matters in exercise and what might not be worth agonizing over.
This shows that after long journeys, that start with the simple, then delve into much complexity, the destination often winds up right back at the simple.
Daniel was (still is?) a Master Superslow instructor who worked closely with Ken Hutchins and did extensive testing with MedX medical lumbar machine.
He has an amazing grasp thanks to both his extensive experience and his critical thinking.

A Conversation with Mark Strough (Mark of Health)
I really enjoy doing these and this one was a special treat.
Mark is an advocate of intelligent, brief, intense exercise and practices the carnivore diet which he credits with dramatically improving issues he's had with autoimmune ailments.
Mark is a super nice guy with whom I share many commonalities
but mostly, I like the combination of his critical thinking, and "humility" (awareness of confirmation bias)..... as well as his respect for those who may disagree with him.
On facebook, look for Mark Strough OR Mark of Health OR Mark n Lori Strough OR Mark's Health and Nutritional Group.
A Conversation with Nigel "Hawk" Allerby
As fellow fans of both rational strength training and philosopher Ayn Rand, I really hit it off with Hawk.
This was one of my favourite interviews, and hope to do more in the future.
He is located in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
In the past he's competed in both kickboxing and bodybuilding and today he trains clients, as I do, on a one on one basis, using primarily MedX equipment.
If you search "High Intensity Training (H.I.T.) Australia Pty Ltd" or "Hawk Allerby" on facebook you'll find his facebook group and profile.
If you're in that part of the world, check him out as he will almost surely be the best trainer you can find!
A Conversation with Jerome Armstrong of 18 Minute Fitness
I recently became aware of Jerome through the facebook page, "Mark's Health & Nutritional Group" where his youtube channel was recommended.
After listening to a few of his videos, I was very impressed.
First off, I was impressed by the thoroughness with which Jerome had done his homework, not just quoting study results he'd read or heard about, but rather evaluating various studies after having perused them closely and scrutinizing methodology.
Secondly, I found his attitude very refreshing, as he continuously remained open to new information: instead of positioning himself as a final authority, he asked for and welcomed challenges to his assertions, showing a willingness to continue to learn and possibly change his views if presented with relevant facts.
Finally, I enjoyed listening and seeing the way his mind works, drawing his points from his own rational and conscious reasoning, rather than parroting other "experts" avoiding any appeals to authority.
This was a fun interview, and I am planning on doing at least one or two more with Jerome in the future.
For those near his facility in Grafton, Wisconsin, I highly recommend taking advantage of his exercise instruction.

A Conversation with Richard Wolff of MEDFITNESS Strength Training
Have been a long time fan of Richard's "MedFitness minute" quick videos that make salient points about health and exercise. And am impressed at his diligence of never missing a day! (as far as I know)
Richard has a degree in nutrition and is a long time proponent of rational exercise. He is very knowledgeable and does a great job with his clients. For anyone near St. Charles, Illinois, you can get a free introductory session!
