Competitions, regardless of your preferred strength sport, are a great way to put your training and practice to the test. They are a way to show strengths and weaknesses with your approach to the sport, a way to have measurable progress in a controlled environment with judges watching you, and they’re a great way to motivate you to make necessary changes with your lifting style.
Hey team, quick rant here, concerning the role that your coach is supposed to play during your lifting career. I recently ran across an Instagram page that I spent way too long hate-scrolling down, where the athlete consistently talked about lifting for 8, 9, 10 days in a row without taking a break. The athlete would do near max/max singles that weren’t in the original program, and the athlete routinely bragged that they were able to convince the coach to let them do these singles, even though that’s not what the coach programmed.
Confession: I am an absolute sucker for biscuits and gravy. It’s like pizza for me; even if it’s not great, it’s still biscuits and gravy. I have made close to 100 batches of biscuits over the last two years or so, trying to perfect my recipe while still keeping it simple. I am here today to share that recipe with you.
Below is a collection of videos I made on various topics regarding mental health, including depression, suicide, my developmental, and the comparisons of mental health issues like you’re trading Pokemon cards. See the videos and their descriptions below.
I get pretty personal and introspective in my video today, and I want to discuss my learning/developmental disorders, and how they have shaped me as a person, a lifter, and a business owner.
A very common question we are asked, by both online and in-person clients, “How long should I rest in between sets?” Here I outline how long I recommend resting for each of the following:

In today’s video, I discuss what I refer to as the ‘Real Woman Movement” (Real women have curves, no thigh gaps, etc), how it can actually hold itself back, and can cause more harm than good. I use some examples from my own experiences as a coach, as well as examples from the experiences of African-American women during the period of second-wave feminism.
In today’s video, I want to discuss the concept of “I want to inspire people / I want to be the reason someone doesn’t give up.” Of course I don’t think that being inspiring is bad, inspiration is great! However, inspiring people shouldn’t be your goal, because it’s not a goal, it’s a cry for attention. Instead, it should be a byproduct of the actual goals you’re trying to achieve.
In today’s video, I want to discuss what makes up the alpha male, and why it isn’t what you think. I discuss the outdated hypothesis of the alpha wolf, and how that pertains to humans today. I also discuss why buying beer, bacon, whiskey and lots of guns doesn’t make you an alpha male, it makes you a sucker for marketing (much like Girl Power in the 90’s, and the female empowerment movement today).
Here is my morning beard-grooming routine: with a blow-dryer, boar hair brush, and coffee/vanilla bean oil. Enjoy!
