How to Hide Your Asymmetries

I’m seeing this pattern over and over and I need to talk about it.

I have some people, usually overweight or obese, who have some sort of joint pain. But they need to workout, build fitness, and lose weight.

So we try to give them all of those adaptations at the same time.

And hey, sometimes it actually works.

Getting Huge While Moving Well

I just saw a comment on one of my daily YouTube videos that shook me.

It’s not that it was particularly scary or outrageous… it just reminded me so much of me.

How do you get huge while nursing your body? Is it even possible?

How do you treat that nagging shoulder/elbow/hip/back/etc but still have fun in the gym?

How do you sweat and make your muscles burn when you feel indefinitely injured?

This post is probably the most existential topic I’ve ever covered. It addresses the questions I’ve been pondering the most for the last decade.

Don’t Brace on Every Deadlift

Online-educated lifters overutilize bracing.

The demands of a heavy deadlift are different than a high rep deadlift. If you brace every rep on a set of 12, it’s going to take you a minute and a half to finish the set. Plus, you’re spiking your blood pressure more than you need to.

You’re a Trip, Man

Have you ever gone on a cross-country road trip? Just you, a bag of clothes, and a car?

Have you ever spent extended time alone? On purpose?

A few years ago, I got in my car and started driving west. I’m a creature of comfort. My family is easy to be around. My friends and I have great discussion. I was coaching in a gym that meant so much to me and was a HUGE piece of my development… both as a human, and a coach.

But I needed to break the cycle. I needed to get more UNcomfortable. If I didn’t, I would never grow… at least as much as I expected from myself.

I drove out to Denver, CO from Indy in two days. I stayed at a sketchy hotel on the way out there (there was a sign that said, “Best Western is not responsible if your things are stolen”). I met some Airbnb people and finally saw what mountains look like (this just in: they’re gorgeous). I even went HIKING.

Now that trip… THAT was an experience.

What is the single most important goal of the site? Do you want this to supplement a physical location? Or is this more of an online-only project? Do you have a compelling offer for new customers? Do you have testimonials to show people? Do you have pictures you can use without violating copyright? Do you have someone to write compelling sales text? I can help you work through these questions if we do end up working together.
