- What’s your best body fat? Wow, what an insightful article this was and a worthy read. If you’ve ever wanted to know what your body fat should be, you need to read this article.
- Exercises You Should Be Doing: Core Engaged Active Straight Leg Raise. You may not have heard of this exercise or used it in this way before, so take a look and learn.
- Is Diet Coke Bad for You? What About Artificial Sweeteners? What do you think?
- The Rep Bible. Pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted to know about reps, from a really buff dude who knows what he’s talking about. Yea, I’d read it if I were you.
Off-Topic Stuff (Because, like…Why not?)
- Google CFO retires with a candid memo about work/life balance. Important for everyone to read. I found this short article very insightful and I think you will too.
- Why I decided to go on a co-work vacation in Bali for a month. This concept fascinates me. People are working in these types of communities for weeks or months at a time at a price far cheaper than what they pay to live back home – all to develop big ideas and connect with other creatives.
Books I’m Currently Reading
- Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future. Peter Thiel, the first outsider investor in Facebook and co-founder of PayPal, wrote this book and its high praise is warranted. So far, it’s been a stellar read and if you’ve ever had an idea for a startup and want to actually make it a reality this is your book.

- On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction. Still going on this book, but often times I’ll read books I’m the most excited about and right now this isn’t tops on the list.
- MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. If you eventually want to retire one day (Most people I’m assuming) this book is an absolutely a must-read. I’m about a 4th of the way through and have already been blown away by the knowledge inside.
- Free TED-like Videos for Fitness & Nutrition. Every fitness professional needs to watch these and learn from some of the best in the industry.
- Sacrifice Good For Great. This is episode 3 of season 10 of the Thank God It’s Monday video series by Eric Thomas, one of the most inspirational people in the world.
- Billionaire Elon Musk: How I Became the Real ‘Iron Man’. Talk about a guy who is changing the world, Elon Musk is probably the most ambitious entrepreneur on the planet and he’s changing multiple industries at once.
- Productivity Secrets of a Master DJ. From the Tim Ferriss Show, this episode, like all others, is tremendous.
