Do Squats Work Hamstrings and Calves?

Do Squats Work Hamstrings and Calves?

A flippant answer would be, why does it matter? For someone used to working body parts individually like a body builder, we would say that squats should not be your primary movement for posterior leg development. But are those muscles activated during a property...

Why Do I Lose Fitness So Easily?

Why Do I Lose Fitness So Easily?

This morning, I had a great side conversation with an athlete who was gone for a couple weeks due to work/travel obligations. We commiserated a bit together about how quickly we seem to lose our fitness in just few short weeks. Naturally, he wanted to know why.  ...

Will Lifting Weights Make Me Bulky?

Will Lifting Weights Make Me Bulky?

Dealing with Cheaters…

In 2018, I gave a presentation to a group of about 100 coaches at the Two-Brain Summit about developing relationships with your clients. I made sure to notate that this was in reference to professional/interpersonal, not intimate, relationships - HA! I talked about...

How I Get My Reading In…

Over the past couple of days, I’ve went over ‘why I read so much’ and then my reading list from last year and so far this year.    Naturally, the next part people want to know about is: “How do you manage to read so much?”   Simple, really - I just do it.    Beyond...

Why I Read So Much…

My Struggle…

Being the owner of a gym is an interesting phenomenon. The ability to play a part in the positive changing of someone's life is pretty spectacular. Health and longevity, and not just surviving but thriving, are incredibly important to me. They form part of the...

Hi, I’m Josh!

Today is July 1st, 2019. We are officially half-way through this year. 6 months down, 6 to go. One of my favorite past times is writing, but admittedly it's not something that I've been doing a lot of lately. "Life" has simply gotten in the way. But kind of like when...
