Episode 74: The Return of Amazing Ted and 5 Things That are Wrecking Your Workouts.

July 31, 2015

I feel the Amazing/Generic Ted's Fitness tips are polarizing. Does everyone know I am taking a poke at the fitness industry for the lame advice they give out or do they think I am being mean? Are people who use the word "Amazing" all the time offended? These are questions I may never know the answer to because no one has complained yet. So my thought is that you find the stupid advice of Ted funny. 

After a bit of a laugh we delve into pure seriousness with 5 things you are doing wrong in the gym. These are great tips and are worth wading through the rest of the stuff to get to. Enjoy!

Episode 73: Greatest Punk Rock Bands and 4 Worthless Rehab Exercises Revisited.

July 23, 2015
00:0000:00
Let's be honest here, I had a number of false starts with this episode. So there are a number of things I probably mentioned that you just are going to have to listen to find out. I do have a pretty good 5 minute discussion of why the Stiff Little Fingers are one of the greatest punk bands in the world.

I believe the rest of the podcast is devoted to talking about an article from T-Nation I posted on Facebook. There are 4 things people are doing for rehab. Are you doing them correctly? Not doing 4 things? Want to do 4 things for rehab? Well all you have to do is push play and let me fill you in.

Episode 71: Tribute to Mark Rippetoe (no he’s not dead) and the Wrap-up on the haunted mansion

July 9, 2015

Episode 71 never really goes into the nutrition toolbox but we do have a lot of fun with a tribute to one of my big influences, Mark Rippetoe. Just check out some of Rip's quotes.


“Strong people are harder to kill than weak people, and more useful in general.” 
― Mark Rippetoe

“The deadlift also serves as a way to train the mind to do things that are hard.” 
― Mark RippetoeStarting Strength: Basic Barbell Training

“Humans are not physically normal in the absence of hard physical effort.” 
― Mark RippetoeStarting Strength



“There is no easy way to do a deadlift—not involving actually picking up the bar—which explains their lack of popularity in gyms around the world.” 
― Mark RippetoeStarting Strength: Basic Barbell Training

Quotes from goodreads.com

I also fill you in on the ghost mansion. Is it haunted or not? I am not telling. Well, I will tell you in the podcast but I can't here. It would spoil everything.

So give it a listen. I think it is a pretty good episode.

Episode 70: Bicep Curls A Total Body Exercise?

July 2, 2015
00:0000:00

Worst title for an episode ever? Maybe but now that I have your attention I guarantee you will learn something this week. Too many people waste time in the gym. No, not getting water, looking at their smart phones or leaning on machines. I am talking about wasting time while you are doing the exercises. 

I will take the lowly bicep curl and give you the timeline to show you what versions to do and which ones to avoid.
