  • Optional cardio + Foam rolling + Broga/Brobility
  • Become a supple leopard— if you have the dispensable income, I highly recommend purchasing this book. The information contained is worth many, many times over $34.

  • Get educated on the ill effects that running for long distances as your sole form of exercise, on a consistent basis, can have on your metabolism. Women, especially, have a huge misconception about how to properly lose weight and get a proper physique.
  • Main takeaway: if you know any women whose primary goal is getting a “lean and toned” physique while still maintaining a normal diet, make them aware of this. They should be doing weight training (especially circuit training), not running themselves to death every day in combination with a starvation diet!
  • Check out my 3-day SwoleFIT workout I wrote up for women.

  • There’s races all over the country; check out the video to get a glimpse of the event:
