Fat Loss for Men Over 35 Made Simple #264
One of my favorite masterclasses from this year was also one of our best attended. Fat Loss and Body Transformation are such important topics to get right, especially because what worked at 30 won't always work at 40.

I also summarized these 32 action items in a comprehensive PDF guide, which includes links to additional resources. Get your copy now by clicking here.

A Framework of Achievement for High-Performers #260
Today's solocast contains a couple of my favorite recent clips from our members-only coaching calls. I felt that these clips were too valuable for our broader community to miss out on, and impactful enough that they're worth listening to multiple times. I've made it a part of my life's mission to empower men to step into their greatness - to get OUTSIDE of the often narrow confines of life they're conditioned to, and to tap into their fullest potential. Most people never come close to what they are truly capable of. This solocast is a pushback against that norm, and offers you a framework to advance toward your goals, not just exist in them. By the end of this episode, you’ll learn how to live according to the priorities that 99% of people miss. You'll learn: How to Determine Your Individual Purpose & Meaning of Fulfillment. Why SO Many People Live Small and How to BREAK the Cycle. The #1 Immediate (and Underutilized) Tool to Alleviate Anxiety. A Simple but LIFE-CHANGING Framework to Achieve Your Goals. You can also get your free copy of the episode guide, which details key points AND the most important exercise that I lead during the solocast.

"I'm not working hard enough," or "my nutrition is poor" are often the most common reasons I hear men over 35 cite to explain poor results around building muscle. I recorded this solocast because, even though one or both of the above statements may be true, after decades of experience I can tell you that it's almost always something else - and it's probably not what you'd expect... The reason you're not building muscle is more likely to be that you're NOT fit enough in the first place, to actually transform your body. That's what we get into on this episode.

At age 15, he learned Afro-Brazilian Capoeira, a practice that sent him on a life-long journey to explore various modalities, and learn and study his deeper connection to Movement. His search to study under experienced 'Movement Teachers' came up unsuccessful, as he could not find anyone who could TRULY represent that title.

The New Standard for Optimal Health with Dr. Gil Blander #248
My personal coaching packages always include blood, urine, and DNA testing for those who are looking to achieve optimal health through objective metrics. As I've navigated this landscape with my clients over the years, I'm consistently dissatisfied with the "normal" ranges prescribed by the conventional medical community. Today's guest, Dr. Gil Blander, shares my view. What utility does the normal range have, when there is such a much better opportunity to obtain a marker of health that is optimal, individualized, and SO much better than normal? Today's episode breaks down the biggest levers to help you reach a level of "superhuman" that is accessible for nearly EVERYONE. Dr. Gil Blander is a renowned scientist with a PhD in biology, who conducted his postgraduate research on aging at MIT.  He is an expert in nutrition, biomarker analytics, athletic performance, biochemistry, and aging research.  Dr. Blander is also the founder of InsideTracker, a personalized health and performance analytics company created by leading scientists, physicians, nutritionists and exercise physiologists.

The Cure for Female Hormonal Imbalances #247
Today's episode is an extensive, and highly actionable explanation of health for women.

A Functional Medicine Health and Hormone Doctor, Dr. Jones believes that when people understand their bodies, they feel more empowered to take control of their health. This is especially true when they're told everything is "normal," but they don't feel that way. You'll learn: Why and how endocrine disruptors are affecting you. Immediate KEY levers to balance your monthly cycles. The simple red flags to help you determine hormonal imbalance. Supplements & tests to optimize estrogen detoxification.

Why You Can't Stay Motivated and How to Fix It #246
Many people believe that it's their lack of motivation that prevents them from making progress... That if only they were able to master their will, anything would be possible. These are usually men who have historically been motivated which just adds to the frustration. If I could stick to that, why can't I stick to this?  But what if it wasn't actually about motivation at all? What if you only needed to master THREE things in order to create progress, momentum and therefore, results?  Over the last 20 years and throughout my career, I've studied the intersection of mindset, the nervous system, and the physical body... which are inextricably intertwined. So on today's solocast, I wanted to feature a snippet of my last workshop where I share my understanding of what is really holding you back from feeling consistently motivated. You'll learn: The 3 KEY components of motivation that will help you get unstuck. What ONE practice can expand your capacity more than any other. The GREATEST driving factor of consistent progress in your training. How to preserve + amplify new levels of youthful energy. What guarantees continued success in all areas of life.

The Mindset for Exceptional Training #245
After decades of coaching high-achievers, I've seen that the people who succeed simply commit and follow through. It's not their skill level, talent, or predisposition for health and fitness. Instead it's their character and integrity. It's the whatever-it-takes attitude. These men are also the ones I find myself continually inspired by. That's why I just released a solocast on The Mindset for Exceptional Training - for these men and the ones who aspire to be like them. You'll learn: The most important thing to curate each day. The KEY step most people miss in the transformation process. How to balance rigidity and fluidity in your training. A framework for addressing and improving your weakest links.

The Truth About Metabolism, Animal Protein, and Insulin | Dr. Ben Bikman #243
It's Dr. Ben Bikman's third time on the Muscle Intelligence Podcast, and with good reason: Dr. Bikman's knowledge of human metabolism is matched by few.  He is among the world’s foremost scientists on metabolic health and insulin resistance.  Much of Dr. Bikman's recent lab work is focused on the pathogenicity of chronically elevated insulin. On today's interview, Dr. Bikman breaks down the mechanisms behind optimizing the process of fat loss, debunks macronutrient myths, and reveals the truth about aging well. You'll learn: The MOST IMPORTANT fuel for the brain (and how to produce it in your body). Where the calories in/calories out model of weight loss can be invoked.
