    4 Tips On Becoming More Mentally Resilient (Diet & Life Advice) | MTFP Ep.144

    4 Tips On Becoming More Mentally Resilient (Diet & Life Advice) | MTFP Ep.144

    I hesitate to make episodes like this because "mental advice" from people is usually vague and hard to implement. I also don't want to sound preachy, like I don't struggle with these exact things I'm "teaching." But I wanted to make it because I've found these tips helpful. Close friends have found them helpful. And the clients I work with have found them helpful. So, I figured there's a decent chance you'll find them helpful, too. And like it says in the title, this is mostly geared towards fitness, but the tips can apply almost universally. Hope you find it useful, and enjoy!

    What Should You Track Each Day For Optimal Fat Loss? | MTFP Ep.143

    What Should You Track Each Day For Optimal Fat Loss? | MTFP Ep.143

    Deciding what to track is largely up to the individual and their expectations around progress. In my experience working with hundreds of people, and through years of tracking myself, you get much better results if you track a few key things. In this podcast, I talk about who needs to track, why it's necessary to track, what most people get wrong when they try to lose weight, and at the end of the podcast I give some practical recommendations. There's a middle ground between too relaxed and too strict, so I make sure to explain what I've found works best. Hope it helps!

    The 'First Principles' Behind Losing Fat & Gaining Muscle | MTFP Ep.142

    The 'First Principles' Behind Losing Fat & Gaining Muscle | MTFP Ep.142

    Too many people get caught up in the minutia when it comes to losing weight: brown rice vs white? Intermittent fasting or keto? One protein shake or two protein shakes per day? These questions are all missing the forest for the trees. What these questions are missing is problem solving from a "first principles" approach.

    A first principle is a foundational proposition or assumption that stands alone. We cannot deduce first principles from any other proposition or assumption. Basically, we can't break it down any further. Which is a good thing, because this means we get to the root of the problem! When we know what the foundational problem is, we know where to point our efforts when solving it. And in this solo episode, I try to break down fat loss and muscle building to it's key components, so it's as simple as possible for you to understand. Once you understand it, it will guide your future decisions. Hope it helps!

    [REPLAY] 2020 Retrospective — What Worked, What Didn't, & What To Improve For 2021 | MTFP Ep.97

    [REPLAY] 2020 Retrospective — What Worked, What Didn't, & What To Improve For 2021 | MTFP Ep.97

    No new episode for this week, so we're throwing it back to last year's retrospective. A retrospective is when you look back on the past year to identify what worked... and what didn't work. A retrospective helps you celebrate your wins and identify your weaknesses. It helps you learn from the past and correct for the future.



    In this solo episode, I answer three questions:

    QUESTION 1: What's working? ("What did I do right? What am I proud of?")

    QUESTION 2: What's not working? ("What could be improved? What are my biggest opportunities for growth?")

    QUESTION 3: How can I fix what’s not working for a better result? ("What specific things can I focus on next time?")



    Hopefully this episode inspires you to take the time to think, reflect, and write your own retrospective. It should take you roughly an hour, but you owe it to yourself to take this seriously. Hope you enjoy!

    Workout Considerations As You Get Older, Busier, Etc. | MTFP Ep.140

    Workout Considerations As You Get Older, Busier, Etc. | MTFP Ep.140

    No matter your age, the basics should be the foundation of your workout program. But as you get older and busier, there are external variables that you need to consider more and more. Working out when you're 20 will be different than 30, 30 will be different than 40, and so forth. In this solo episode, I cover strategies that are helpful at any age, but especially as "life" starts to happen to you more as time goes on.



    I mention my best tips for...

    -stress management (workout recovery, dieting, sleep deprivation, anxiety, etc.)

    -warming up properly to avoid aching joints later in life

    -increasing your daily calorie burn through NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis)

    -scheduling your workouts to fit your lifestyle

    -the best exercises and cardio regimen for general health, fat loss, & longevity

    -and much more!



    Hope it helps!
