For most people that’s more than a lifetime worth of achievement, and enough to make them spend the rest of their days on easy street, but not Tony. After his decorated boxing career was over, his drive and passion for helping people led him to the fitness industry. continue reading.

Training for WrestleMania

I get a lot of questions about whether my methods work for females. The answer is a resounding YES.

It’s not cardio, not hour long mobility flows, not burpees, not juggling weights, not battling ropes, not light complexes, not “functional training” where you stand one one leg on balance boards and bosu balls, not Pilates, not yoga, not getting drenched in sweat or breathing like a locomotive during some type… continue reading.

Are You Doing Too Much Volume? Optimal Frequency, Best Exercises for Abs & Traps – Episode 288

Over the last few years you may have heard some relatively new (less than 10 years of real world experience) trainers and online fitness guru’s regurgitate the following statement, “volume is the key driver of hypertrophy gains.” That statement is continually made these days because of some studies showing that those who did more sets gained more muscle.

If you lack the requisite 10-25 years of real world coaching experience that it takes to wade through all this stuff, you just go with whatever’s popular at the… continue reading.
