The Iron Life Podcast #44: Bulletproof Your Immune System

The Iron Life Podcast #44: Bulletproof Your Immune System

With the chaos of the Coronavirus going on, it’s important to be proactive in how you take care of yourself.

We know that washing our hands and avoiding large crowds can help prevent the spread of the virus to some degree.

But what if we do happen to catch it?

I would like to believe that strengthening the f*ck out of your immune system wouldn’t be a bad thing.

On today’s episode I share with you a list of things you can do to enhance your immune system just in case you come across this thing.

It’s better to be proactive and do what you can rather than just sitting back on worrying.

Stay healthy and enjoy the show.

The Iron Life Podcast #42: Fat Loss, Energy Systems & The Truth About HIIT

The Iron Life Podcast #42: Fat Loss, Energy Systems & The Truth About HIIT

HIIT has become extremely popular these days.

That’s because true high intensity interval training is extremely effective for losing body fat. Countless studies and real-world results have proven this. There’s just one problem…

Not one of these “HIIT” training facilities actually incorporate it the right way.

The issue here is that anyone can open a “HIIT” training facility.

And approximately .00000000000001% of these people understand energy systems and what HIIT actually looks like.

So I felt it was necessary to drop an episode of The Iron Life Podcast on how these energy systems work, so you can speed up the process of losing body fat and keep it off for good.

You’ll also learn how understanding these energy systems can even speed up your recovery, which means better gains in the gym.

The Iron Life Podcast #40: Maximize Your Potential with Steve Bonnen

The Iron Life Podcast #40: Maximize Your Potential with Steve Bonnen

The mind is more powerful than what you give it credit for.

And I’m not only talking about the way you think, act and speak.

I’m talking about your subconscious beliefs.

The story you tell yourself without telling yourself a story at all.

It’s the way your mind is wired, due to experiences or events that have occurred at one point or another in your life.

That subconscious wiring it what then dictates our choices, thoughts and behaviors.

Powerful shit!

Today, my guest on The Iron Life Podcast, Steve Bonnen, talks about how he rewired his subconscious through a twelve month program and how you can do the same.

Steve has his CSCS, CPPS, PPSC and his level one in Precision Nutrition.

He has a ton of knowledge and today he shares that with you.

We also discuss training, proper warm-up techniques, business and a whole lot more.

The Iron Life Podcast #32: Macro Breakdown for Muscle Gain, Customizing Your Program and How to NOT Get Fat While Bulking

I often get asked a lot of the same questions.

How often should you train?

What should you eat before and after training?

What do you need to eat to build muscle?

Since these questions are asked so often I decided to record a podcast and answer all of them once and for all!

I even took it a step further and discuss an advanced eating strategy for building muscle. But BEWARE, this approach is NOT for everyone. There are a few other things you’ll need to do before giving this strategy a try,which I also discuss on today’s episode.
