The Drop Set – Episode 157: Idiot Celebrity Trainers, Chest Activation, ‘Abnormalities’

EThe Drop Set – Episode 157 0:00 – Intro! Short and sweet (you’re welcome!) 2:41 – Are you ready for probably the dumbest bit of training advice you’ve ever heard? Get ready and have a trash can nearby in case the sheer stupidity of this makes you almost hurl, like it did me. 15:24 – Mea Culpa. My math knowledge isn’t what it used to be! Thanks Kevin for calling me out on my bullshit incorrect usage of certain functions! 19:47 – Steve from Belgium with some questions on chest activation – whoa, actual relevant bodybuilding information? What podcast is this again? I break it down and give him some homework to chew on. 31:02 – Martina from Kansas has questions on the viability of competing with an ileostomy bag, and I extend this to talk a little about competing with anything that might be considered an ‘abnormality’ and special considerations for doing so.

The Drop Set – Episode 155: A Little Philosophy, Post-Workout Nutrition, Cardio Struggles

EThe Drop Set – Episode 155 0:00 – Whoa, new intro music! Since I felt like indulging in sharing a new demo, I figured I’d try to make it relevant to bodybuilding – did it work? 16:37 – Conor (Houston, TX) has a couple good questions – we dig into specifics on post-workout nutrition timing and also composition to some extent, and then also the age old question: how many meals a day is best? 27:36 – Martina (Overland Park, KS) is struggling with cardio and sweating – so yeah, there’s an obvious answer here, but I wanted to dig in a bit deeper in troubleshooting and offering some suggestions and things to try.

The Drop Set – Episode 153: Thanksgiving Eating, Macro Subs, Being a Better Coach

EThe Drop Set – Episode 153 0:00 – I kick things off today with several updates! Personal, Taz-related, band-related, and also lawn-related – the final one of 2019! 12:24 – Let’s talk turkey. Thanksgiving (and holidays in general) are a huge source of anxiety for most bodybuilders. Let me talk you off the ledge a bit but also be real about how you can screw things up. 17:38 – Paula called in (ok ok, I FORCED her to call in) asking about macronutrient substitutions with some specific examples of how to make certain things work. Prepare for a 20 minute deep dive on exactly that! 37:30 – By popular request: how to be a better coach! Less about the “coaching” aspect of things and more about how to operate things in a successful and efficient manner on the business side.
