The Best of Muscle for Life: How to Stay Lean, How Much Cardio You Should Do, The Self-Made Myth
Play • 33 min

I’ve recorded hundreds of episodes of Muscle for Life on a huge variety of things related to health, fitness, and lifestyle, ranging from the basics of diet and exercise like energy and macronutrient balance and progressive overload and training frequency and volume to fads like the ketogenic and carnivore diet and collagen protein to more unfamiliar territories like body weight set point and fasted cardio.

Some episodes resonate with my crowd more than others, but all of them contain at least a few key takeaways that just about anyone can benefit from (that’s what I tell myself at least).

And as cool as that is, it poses a problem for you, my dear listener:

Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Well okay, some people do make the time to listen to most or even all of my podcasts, but my wizbang analytics tell me that while many listeners tune in on a regular basis, they don’t catch every installment of Muscle for Life and thus miss out on insights that could help them get a little better inside and outside the gym.

People have also been saying they’d like me to do more shorter, multi-topic episodes, like my Q&As.

And so I got an idea: how about a “best of” series of podcasts that contains a few of the most practical and compelling ideas, tips, and moments from my most popular episodes?

This way, people who are new to the show can quickly determine if it’s for them or not, and those who enjoy what I’m doing but don’t have the time or inclination to listen to all of my stuff can still benefit from the discussions and find new episodes to listen to.

So, in this installment of The Best of Muscle for Life, you’ll be hearing hand-picked morsels from three episodes:

1. Marc Perry on How to Stay Super Lean Year Round (Without Hating Your Life)

(Originally published July 18, 2018)

2. How Much Cardio You Should Do (and How Much Is Too Much)
(Originally published April 3, 2019)

3. Motivation Monday: Beware the “Self-Made” Myth

(Originally published August 27, 2018)

And we’ll be starting with number one, Marc Perry on how to stay super lean year-round.

5:44 - Marc Perry on How to Stay Super Lean Year Round (Without Hating Your Life)

16:03 - How Much Cardio You Should Do (and How Much Is Too Much)

#364: COVID 19: What No One's Telling You, with Ivor Cummins
Since 2012 Ivor Cummins, The Fat Emperor, has been intensively researching the root causes of modern chronic disease. With an undeniable ability to detect contradictory science (and flat out lies) Ivor has correctly predicted so much of what has already happened during the pandemic and it appears he has a good idea of what’s still to come. In this episode of Renegade Radio the author of the excellent book “Eat Rich, Live Long” gives us an absolute masterclass on getting and staying healthy during the pandemic (and beyond). He also exposes so many of the lies we’ve been led to believe since March 2019. Regardless of who you are, chances are you’re interested in protecting yourself and the people you love. With that said, this incredible episode is for everyone. Listen as we discuss: * How “The Devil’s Triad” is making you fat, sick and weak.
