This Week, I Started BossBytes
This past week, I started a fairly regular vlog / podcast dubbed #BossBytes, a small segment where I address some frequently asked questions and give my opinion on the subject. For so long I've been too afraid to speak my mind out of fear of negative feedback. NO MORE I say. From now on, I'd like to give you all access to information, regardless of if I'm afraid to provide or not.
In Episode #1, I address the million dollar question: How Can I Start To Lose Weight? In this short video, I discuss what is important and what isn't so that you can wade through the bullshit in the New Year. While weight loss on paper is quite simple, it rarely pans out that way. In this segment, I provide a few tips to get started in ways that will encourage you to continue well after the New Year has passed.
For an audio only version of this segment, please listen at the following links:
In Episode #2, I dive into one of the most controversial subjects in the industry: Will Eating Carbs Make You Fat?
While many people think that eating carbs will automatically lead to fat gain, it rarely pans out that way. In fact, you could probably use some more carbs in your diet, but like everything, the answer is based on context, such as how active you are.
Really, carbs only lead to fat gain if you're consuming them in great excess of what is required by the body for energy. To learn more about this subject and how just about everything you've heard about carbs is wrong, consider watching the video or clicking the links below.
In Episode #3, I dive into Intermittent Fasting and discuss how and why it seems to work so well for many. If you've ever been interested in the concept of this diet, or simply want to learn a bit more, this video / podcast is for you.
In Episode #4, I blow a few minds by talking about how muscle damage probably doesn't mean as much as many of us think it does. If this information surprises you, don't worry. When a leading author of this research told our graduate course muscle damage was irrelevant, most of us just laughed, since that's been a long-withstanding belief for most of our lives.
As a reader of Boss Strength, you'll understand what muscle damage is and why you shouldn't train with the purpose of creating muscle damage, putting you literally years ahead of you counterparts.
We Talked Further About Muscle Damage And Its Importance

As mentioned briefly, many people have this belief that in order to build muscle, you first need to 'damage' it. As it turns out though, this might be a bit short sighted. Research is beginning to reveal that when muscle damage occurs, many resources are used to repair that damage, rather than producing further growth.
Thus, if your goal of training is to damage the muscle and "get sore," you might be wasting your time.
In this article, I break down why muscle damage probably isn't as important as you think and of course other routes you should take when building your dream physique.
We Learned How To Build A Big Bench

In a first of its kind on Boss Strength, I discuss some of the techniques that I used to personally increase my bench press by over 50 pounds, pushing me over the milestone of a 365 bench.
While this isn't a "how to bench press" guide, many of the concepts and techniques can be used in your training immediately for a much more impressive bench. If you care at all about having a big bench, you should definitely give this short guide a read. You won't regret it.
This Week, I Began The Launch Of Guided Training
Guided training is an opportunity for you to have expert guidance for a fraction of the cost of both in person AND online training.
With this option, depending on the duration, I build completely custom programs according to you as an individual and of course your overall purpose for training. Currently, I'm offering a 1 month plan option, but I will be launching longer durations in the coming weeks.
If you're interested in receiving custom programs with support for the duration of your training, this is a great way to test the waters that is online training, with little risk to yourself. If you're interested in more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I typically respond within 24hrs or less.
In the New Year, I've decided to really ramp up the amount of content I provide in addition to different services that I'm offering. Some of my goals for this New Year:
While I rarely fall into the idea of "New Year, New Me" this year has felt a bit different. I'm optimistic about the future and can't wait to see what's in store.
Monthly Free Training
I understand that the idea of online training can be a bit confusing and even scary. Also, I understand that sometimes a big price tag (which is much, much less than in person training, mind you) can seem a bit foreign.
That's why I started offering a free training contest each month. Each month, 1 lucky individual will have the opportunity to have 1 month of all access training at no cost or risk. You'll recieve everything you would with normal training.
At the end of your month, you'll be provided with discounts on full training and even other products I offer. I do this so that you can see what it's all about and then make an informed decision. I wouldn't expect you to join on faith alone, simply because I wouldn't either.
If you're interested in this awesome opportunity, click here. Once you click, you'll sign up and then be sent to a consultation form. Fill it out and if you're chosen, I'll send you an email. If you aren't chosen, I'll still send you an email to let you know you were a loser, and good luck next time (just kidding, I'll send you a discount code for various things on the site that you can use or not use. Your call).
