The way we view our food is the foundation of our relationship with it. If we're talking long term health here; how do I get long term results and also enjoy my food?

It doesn't have to be one or the other, but it begins in your mind, not on the plate.

How you view your food's purpose is going to have a massive effect on your ability to be successful; so I recorded today's episode to dive into exactly how do this ...

For today's solo show, I wanted to breakdown a concept that has come up in several conversations lately.

Many might not draw a distinction between a coach and a trainer; but I do, and I wanted to go over how I classify them for the show today.

This episode could be helpful for you if you are currently on the search for someone to guide you along in your quest, whatever the medium may be.

If this is in anyway helpful for you,...

Today I had the pleasure of chatting with Joel Burham of Whitetail Fit. Joel was one of the first hunting accounts I remember following several years ago.

Joel has a great story of how he became infatuated with bowhunting and the process that led him turning that into a career.

He has a very inspiring story and is a great follow for hunting content and information.

Enjoy!

A while back I wrote a guest article on for a website on the concept of Balance.

The way that I define balance in life between work, training, life, family, etc. is probably a bit different than what you usually hear. So for the solo episode today, I wanted to read and expand on the article that I wrote almost a year ago.

 

What is balance?

Is it even attainable?

If so, how?

 

I cover all of these things in the episode, and ...

Today's episode was a real treat for me as a strength history nerd. I am joined today James Fuller, of Strongman Archaeology.

James has been studying and performing the old time strongman lifts for years and his instagram page has fascinated me for a while now.

We go over a ton in this conversation;

  • The history of these movements and why they stopped being performed
  • James' journey from bodybuilding in the 80's to disc...

    Today I'm breaking down a piece written by Steven Kotler on the concept of Flow.

    Its a word that has become pretty trendy in recent years and I think Kotler's thoughts on it, and how to use it to be more productive and successful are brilliant.

    I don't usually just read things out loud for a podcast but I thought it was important to analyze his actual words.

    This one was fun, hope you enjoy!

    Today's solo show is a short Ask Me Anything episode with questions taken from the Instagram audience.

    It was a little more light-hearted today, with less health and strength stuff and more nonsense.

    Today's episode was one of my favorite that I've recorded since starting the podcast, mainly because this one was in person!

    Austin Legg joins me today on the show to talk about some great lessons and motivation from his time spent hunting in the deep backcountry, usually alone.

    Austin came out to the patio gym to get a true Nomad experience, Ice bath in the freezer followed by a kettlebell and sandbag training session pr...

    For today's solo show we are hopping off the health and fitness train.   I often get asked for all kinds of Top 3 and Top 5 lists for random things so I thought today would be a fun day to get people all riled up.   We're going Top 3 Super Heroes and Villains, so I'm sure I'll get all kinds of messages about who I left off both lists and why my lists suck.   I welcome it.   Enjoy!   Follow along: www.instagram.com/c...
