Have you faced moments during your body transformation when you felt like you’re not making any progress? Like your stuck and have hit a plateau? Of course you have. We all go through those experiences from time to time.
In these moments, a little dose of perspective is exactly what the doctor ordered. View Full Post… Click Here!
When I first lost 50 pounds (over the course of 9 months), I faced a barrage of comments from friends and family who asked me if I was ok. They wondered if I was sick.
Their negative perspective towards my appearance had nothing to do with my physique. It was all about how thin my face looked.
I found this interesting. Here I was looking the best I ever have, feeling vibrant, and never been healthier, yet friends and family were concerned about me. View Full Post… Click Here!
Episode 46 of the Physique Mastery Podcast is all about keeping it positive with every aspect of your fitness lifestyle.
Click play and listen into our discussion on the topics of;
- Pointless Facebook debates over “best” training and nutrition practices.
- What you’re missing out on when you focus on whether a bodybuilder is “natty or not”.
- Why we may have been better off 20 years ago when we had less information available at our finger tips.
If you’re serious about transforming your physique, here are two rules you should follow regarding alcohol consumption;
1) When your goal is burning fat, you should either abstain from alcohol or limit your intake to once per month.
2) When your goal is building muscle, you should limit your intake to no more than once per week.
In both cases, keep the intake to a moderate consumption. Don’t drink to get hammered.
If you have an active social life and enjoy alcohol as I do (I LOVE craft beer), this may be a tough adjustment in the beginning. But I assure you the sacrifice is worth it when your goal is worthy of achieving.
Alcohol can have a negative impact on your energy, performance in the gym, recovery, appetite, and focus.

Having been fully immersed in the fitness industry for 20 years, I’ve seen far too many assumptions being made and close-minded debates. I’ve been guilty of it myself.
But what I’ve learned and the reason why I continue to try my best to avoid making these mistakes, is that it prevents you from seeing the bigger picture and the greater good.
Worse it limits your growth.
Why people feel the need to put down certain approaches in order to make their approach appear better, absolutely blows my mind.
Everything works. Yet everything doesn’t. There is no single best way to lose weight, build muscle, and transform your body. The best approach is one that suits you, your lifestyle, your personality, and your preferences.
Closed minds lead to assumptions such as, bodybuilders are all show and no go, powerlifters are all overweight, vegetarians only eat tofu and lettuce, that everyone on a ketogenic diet only eats bacon and puts butter in their coffee, that people who count calories walk around with a food scale at all times or that they are only counting macros as a means to justify fitting Pop-Tarts and Skittles into their diet.
But the real tragedy about having a closed mind and making assumptions is when it’s done in a way that imposes a limited belief on others.
