Getting Shredded and Uncovering the “Best” Diets

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Getting ShreddedIt’s been a while since we’ve heard my brother, Kenny Johnson on the podcast.
In that time he lost 43 pounds of body-fat, got shredded and competed in a physique contest.

Like me, Kenny got his first visible 6-pack after his 40th birthday. That means there’s plenty of hope for everyone who thinks their best days are behind them. Not evenly remotely true.

Today, Kenny and I are freestyling back and forth about:

  • His exact diet plan and how it progressed.
  • His training and cardio schedule.
  • The diets we’ve felt best on.
  • The difference between eating for health vs. physique vs. performance.
  • What I did to get 9.5 hours of sleep 3 nights in a row.
  • A secret way to improve your pressing.
  • Why I don’t allow people to “pick my brain.”
  • Rules for meeting a new dog.
  • White people and wild animals.
  • #GrammysSoWhite
  • Automation for porn?
  • The best rapper alive every year since ’79.
  • Essentials to a full body warm up.
  • Best barbell-free lower body exercises.
  • How often can you really train?
