For Men Only…

I just wanted to write a personal note to you. Do you want 6-pack abs? Yeah, me too, but only at certain times of the year. Quite honestly, there are other more important things to me right now. Like having the energy to play with my son and do it pain-free. Or loving my wife […]

“It’s Simple But Devastatingly Effective… Like A Ninja.”

Just got this email from one of my customers, Pierre Lachaine, yesterday. I think it’s important that you read it in its entirety because it’s one thing when I say something, but something else altogether when it comes from a “normal Joe.” I’ve taken the liberty to highlight/emphasize the things that really stood out to […]

Reader Question: “How Strong Can Kettlebells Get You?”

That’s an interesting question I received this morning from Niko. He goes on to clarify: “I’ve been wondering this a while  and the simplest I can phrase my question is  this: could I be a lot stronger using 32-40kg kettlebells than “average” gym goers who can squat 140-150kg, bench 120-130kg and deadlift 180-200kg (these are […]

Which Is Better – Broad Or Narrow Focus?

I must confess, I’m one of those guys who wants to do everything all at once – Get ripped, pack on 30 pounds of muscle, and put 100 pounds on all my lifts, and of course, do it all yesterday. Can you relate somewhat? So I have to be careful how I program, or let […]

“How Does The Double Front Squat Translate To Double Swings?”

Tim asks: “My question is how does the strong double front squat translate to strong double swings? I’m fairly new to barbell lifting, but when I have in the past, I’ve used conventional DL because it feels natural. So, double KB swings with a wide sumo stance are awkward. Should I be strong enough to […]

Do You Really NEED To Squat?

For some reason, in the past 48 hours I’ve had 3 different articles come across my desk about the squat. Two were from fairly well respected coaches in their related fields and the third was a forum topic. Guess it’s time to talk about it again – but probably from a different vantage point than […]

Why You Should NOT Eat Organic (HIGHLY Controversial)

I got this great email from my friend David Hinton about some real concerns about eating organic – here’s what he brought up: “Here’s the problem Geoff, in order for the average American to eat the way you suggest, they would have to spend roughly double (maybe more) what we currently spend on food. The […]

The “Healthy” Oil SCAM (MUST Read)

In the past couple of years there has been a lot of talk about “healthy” fats – especially oils. And especially in “Mediterranean” diets. Of course I’m talking about olive oil. I always thought olive oil was healthy. And therefore I always thought cooking with it would make me more healthy. Apparently, I was wrong. […]

My Wife’s Secret Obsession [PICS INSIDE]
