    34: A Client Interviews Me: Daniel Shaw talks about Strength and Fitness with me

    In this episode I get the unique experience of letting one of my strength and fitness clients interview me a little about as we talk about his progress and some great details about programming and strength & fitness training. Daniel Shaw is also a well known gunfight instructor in the firearms training world, a combat vet and a very knowledgeable guy all around. This was a new level of discussion about these topics that I really enjoyed.

    33: My Remote Coaching Program and why barbell training ticks me off

    In this episode I talk specifically about my remote coaching program for strength and fitness conditioning, including the introduction of my new program Team JACKED, a super affordable team-based way to get strong and fit. I also talk about what gets under my skin about barbell training in the current era of fitness and, in my humble opinion, what we've lost along the way.

    31: Client Interview with Johnny on Training specificity, component training, general preparedness

    In this episode I sit down with one of the clients of my remote fitness coaching program. Johnny has achieved some phenomenal results in a few short months, and that was after him training at a very high level of effort for nearly a decade. We talk about how we achieved new goals, PRs and how multi-method training has been for him after 10 years of exclusively Crossfit style training.

    30: It's easier to prepare for the fight that lasts 7 seconds, than for the one that lasts 7 weeks

    30: It's easier to prepare for the fight that lasts 7 seconds, than for the one that lasts 7 weeks

    In this episode I break my silence about COVID 2020 and talk about what I see happening. In particular, I take a look at the qualities we work to build on the range and in the gym, and how those same characteristics are what we need to get through the longer term challenges of life. That fight that lasts 7 seconds or 7 minutes is easy to prepare for compared to the one that will last 7 weeks or 7 months.

Violence dynamics defined perfectly

Most martial arts and self defense instructors concentrate their time on the fight. It just needs to be in line with HOW violence really happens in the world, these podcasts nail that home.
