24 May How To Build Momentum (In Strength And Life)

Author Steven Pressfield writes about the destroyer of all things.

He calls it a nearly unstoppable force that prevents you from achieving what you want.

It is the enemy.

He calls this internal force “resistance” and says it will kill you, if you let it.

You want to start eating better, but you don’t.

You want to train more consistently, but you aren't.

You want to start that training program, but you haven’t.

Believe me, I’ve been guilty of this myself.

I want to write and publish more helpful articles, but I haven’t.

12 Jul How To Make Training Easy And Effortless (Part I)

(#248) Let's call this a "pillar episode" here on the podcast as we dive into the psychology of your training. This is part 1 of a 2-part podcast series for all serious fitness enthusiasts.

Don't worry, I've got plenty of NEW "how to" articles, lifting tips, and training advice coming here soon (and a bunch of other cool new stuff too).

This is a new year and each of us has a clean slate right now. We're all excited about our training as the year begins, right?
