    I was able to lose weight for my vacation ignoring macros entirely, just eating 3 meals a day, nothing in between, and no wine/cheese/nuts/chocolate. I ate a lot of food. 4 eggs for breakfast, a huge...

    Every time I have hurt my back I have still done squats and I have done back extensions. Not at my top weight, of course. Doing nothing has never worked out for me in my entire fitness career. Not...

    What you feel is a lie. You go in there and you do whatever you were going to do. You will soon see that whatever "tweak" you thought you had was a lie. If this doesn't happen and whatever tweak you...

    The way KB swings were explained to me, you arms really don't do anything other than hold on. All the force generated comes from the hips. You have to throw that thing all the way up there with your...
