    Making Workouts Adaptable To Your Life | Minisode #151

    First things first, I need to make it clear that you should be following some type of plan in the gym. If you're just winging it, you don't know if you're making progress or not because you have too much variety. So, get a plan. Next, you need to figure out how to make that plan adaptable to your ever-changing lifestyle. If your plan calls for 4 days per week, but you get busy with work and can only make it 3 days per week, how do you change it? In this Minisode, I break down some of my best programming tips for adjusting your workout plan effectively. Hope it helps!

    Aging Well: How To Eat & Exercise For Longevity | MTFP Ep.130

    In this solo episode, I decided to touch on a topic that is gaining popularity every year. We're all looking for the fountain of youth. Luckily, modern science, medicine, and technology are all getting better by the minute. Some things we can control, some things we can't. But in this episode, I touched on what the latest science says that you *can* control to help you live longer, healthier, and happier lives. Hope you enjoy.

    [REPLAY] How To Prevent Muscle Loss While Dieting | Minisode #87

    [REPLAY] How To Prevent Muscle Loss While Dieting | Minisode #87

    No new Minisode for this week, so we're throwing it back to one of my most popular editions. I had an online coaching client ask me, "at what point in a diet do you risk eating too few calories and start losing muscle mass?" It's a great question and one I don't think people consider enough. Most just worry about the number on the scale going down as fast as possible, but there's a crucial difference between WEIGHT loss and FAT loss. We want to aim for purely fat loss and retain, or build, as much muscle as possible. In this Minisode, I explain the 4 pillars I use with all my clients to do exactly that.

    A quick definition of "leverage": a force multiplier of your effort, skills, and judgment. It's how to increase your input-to-output ratio. How can we change 10% in one area of our life that can generate a 100% improvement to our life? In this solo episode, I give eight different high leverage activities in fitness, nutrition, life, and more. Hope you enjoy!

    How To Stop Letting Your Looks Dictate Your Self-Worth | Minisode #150

    How To Stop Letting Your Looks Dictate Your Self-Worth | Minisode #150

    This topic came from a listener, but it's one that I've spent a lot of time thinking about. I still don't have a fool-proof answer. I think I'm getting close, though, and that's what I wanted to share in this Minisode. Often times our self-worth being tied up in our physique is a disguise for something deeper. Finding that can be hard, and painful. It can also be liberating. I try to give my best advice from what I've learned over the years of helping clients and thinking through this one myself, so I hope it helps.

    [REPLAY] Carter Good — Escaping Hustle Culture, The Craftsman-Driven Mindset, & What Determines Success? | MTFP Ep.88

    [REPLAY] Carter Good — Escaping Hustle Culture, The Craftsman-Driven Mindset, & What Determines Success? | MTFP Ep.88

    No new episode for this week, so we're throwing it back to one of my favorite episodes with one of my favorite people, Carter Good. This was an absolute banger of an episode. He returns to the podcast after a hiatus away and reminded me why I chose him as my very first guest on The More Than Fitness Podcast. If you scroll back, you'll see Carter on episode 3. Many episodes later and we're chatting again, both in different locations than the first time—he was in Columbus, OH and is now in Austin, TX and I was in Lexington, KY, now in New York City—but we're still connecting in the same way we did in that very first conversation.

    In this episode, we cover his recent move to Austin with his girlfriend Kaylin, what it's taught him and why he's not running away from his problems like he has in the past, why surrounding yourself with different types of people is good for you, how to learn from role models that are living the life you want to live, the science of happiness, the evolution of hard work as you get older and priorities change, why hustle is so important when you first start a career, the importance of stopping and reflecting before moving forward, craftsman-driven mindset and purpose-driven mindset, comparing yourself to others, and much, much more!
