I was fortunate to interview strength coach royalty Dan John, on the weekend. (iTunes – Stitcher – YouTube)
He’s kinda a big deal, for those that might not have heard of him.
Dan is a pioneer in strength training (inventor of the goblet squat) and athletic development.

I hope you’ve had a challenging and successful 2017, filled with mistakes, new skills and plenty of laughter.

“I had to take my kids for pizza, they won’t eat anything else”
“Think I left my gym shoes on the train” Continue reading “What really makes us fat and lazy”
Do you have any rituals or routines when it comes to exercises, sports or work?
If the answer is NO, then you should think twice.

Often, the thought of starting a healthy plan or diet can be worse than actually doing it.
You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting articles over the last couple of weeks (if you haven’t shame on you), as I have been getting married and traveling with the family.

All too often I catch clients and people focusing on the things that don’t matter for training and improvement. Gyms and trainers market themselves (and there is nothing wrong with marketing), on features and the latest trends.

Last week I posted a video to my social media (see here) of myself doing a ridiculous drop set and I had a few people contact me and say. “Do I need to be training like that? You looked like you were in extreme pain, is that safe?” Continue reading “Discomfort is the key”
