Intelligent Conditioning (Part 4) – Feel The BURN
In Part 1 of my series on Intelligent Conditioning I made the analogy of building a house in the same way you properly train for long lasting endurance. Our Aerobic system is our foundation, the Alactic/ATP-PC energy system would be our walls and roof. And finally our Glycolytic/Lactic system would be all the cool shit we
Intelligent Conditioning (Part 3) – Repeatable Power
In Part 2 of the Intelligent Conditioning series we went over how to test and build a better aerobic system. This is a crucial component to what we will talk about here in Part 3.

Intelligent Conditioning (Part 2) – Improve Endurance Training By Building The Aerobic Engine

Be Kind To Your Future Self
  If you’re anything like me you have probably said to yourself – I really need to clean up my yard, rake the leaves and mow the grass, but I’ll do it tomorrow. Then a week later you have weeds the size of trees that look like something you would find in the tropical rain
Change The Culture Change Your Body
I’m sorry. As a person that is supposed to be teaching and coaching people to get the body they want, I have let you down. I’ve spent many hours, actually probably hundreds of hours just reading about exercise and whatnot. But I’ve really been missing the boat on what is probably the most important thing
