121. Physiology of Shoulder Training
34:13

Today's episode breaks down the approach you need to start taking to grow your delts. Most of your shoulder stimulus is going to come indirectly from other compound movements throughout the week - so we need to focus on filling the gaps between what compound movements provide and what our physique needs to consistently improve. Oftentimes we aren't giving our deltoids enough time to recover through accumulating junk volume, thus inhibiting our growth.

You ready?! Lets take a deep dive

118: CHANGE
43:38

Today's episode is all about creating change for yourself. We hear a lot about "new year, new me" and "this is going to be my year." That's all well and good but to create true change you need to stand up for what you believe in. Just because it's a new year doesn't mean you have permission to start chasing what you want. Go after it every day with discipline and courage. You want to be a "someone" then you have to start acting like one. Your actions are the driving factor to your success.

Today's THE last elite podcast of 2020. Today we're trash talking Harvard and bad IG fitness advice you're probably hearing a lot of right now.

Leave behind your bad training habits and soft attitude for some discipline and resilience.

It's been incredible to see the impact Grow or Die has had on the fitness community, but none of this would have been possible without you and your support.

Today's episode is all about your greatest weakness - stress. You might think this isn't a ground breaking topic but you might be surprised what you learn from this episode. Stress impacts our performance and physique in various ways including in the gym, emotional stress, stress from PEDs and other ways the body responds to the stress we put it through. The important thing to understand is that your stress is individualized and specific to you, there is no cookie cutter program that's one size fits all when it comes to stress.

108: Expectations
34:30

In today's episode we chat about expectations and what we think it should mean for you and your coach. It's vital to your success that your coach sets expectations with you. A high performing athlete doesn't just catch a pro card by chance, and many Coaches aren't setting those expectations early with their clients. Let us know if you and your coach are setting expectations for your bodybuilding career and or fitness goals. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving this week!

Today's episode is a short but impactful one. We're talking all about adapting like a professional. While COVID numbers rise and states are closing down businesses or putting restrictions on their residents, it's important to understand that you are in control. We can't let our stress overtake our emotions. If your goal is to become a professional in whatever passion you have, you must learn to adapt like a professional.

104: What Grinds My Gears
58:40

Today's episode is all about what grinds our gears, mainly within the fitness industry. We open up briefly chatting about the election. Again, we do our best to keep bias aside but want to share our thoughts. Then we discuss a few topics that are really frustrating: Coaches giving shady deals to attractive women, when someone's physique never changes AND they don't change, how cardio is being used as the main tool of attack in a fat loss phase, people who don't listen to the Grow or Die Podcast (c'mon now), why people ghost you as a coach, why people aren't spending their time expanding themselves,  people who are scared of excess protein, that growth hormone isn't anabolic and people who take pride in ignorance. We had fun with this one so hope you take the time to listen all the way through!

46:29

We open up asking one of the more important life questions - please share your answers with us on Instagram! It'll be a nice lol.

  1.  Carb Cycling - How Justin went from thinking carb cycling was a poor tool for bodybuilding to using it constantly with his contest prep clients.
  2. Thyroid Hormone - How Justin thought T3 had a negative impact on performance and what transitioned into his love for the tool.
  3. Why ultimate strength is not the only key - How using periodization of rep ranges are extremely critical in Justin's current training protocols.
  4. The biggest guy in the room isn't always the smartest guy - Why it's important to understand that just because someone is a large bodybuilder doesn't mean they have the secret to success for you.
  5. More is NOT always better.

94: The Rule Of Specificity
53:47

Today we open up talking about some new insight on megalodon. Random right? Hope you learn something. Then we dive into the rule of specificity. How reverse engineering your goals can create massive growth and direction for you. Abstract goals are more challenging to achieve, if you ever can achieve them. This applies to your training programming, cardio programming, contest prep, professional and personal life. We touch a little on how we believe specificity applies to each of these topics. Your goals should be specific and isolated to your path. Let's make sure we reach them.

93: Physique Enhancement Considerations
50:30

Today we dive into some variables to consider when enhancing your physique and taking it to the next level. We start off by discussing the topic of your training process. If you had to leave the gym after your first set, would that first set be enough? Then we dive into what you should be feeding your body. Why you should stop constantly changing your food and how consistency can support growth. Are you feeding fat mass or lean body mass? What's your goal with cardio? Are you a sprinter or a marathon runner? We recommend you stop doing HIIT for 30 minutes 5 days a week. Why do you want to use PEDs? Are you using them for the right reason? Do they actually support your goals? Finally, what is your thought process during a training set? Are you just going through the motions or are you getting technical and specific?

How did we get to this point as humans, as Americans? How did our society evolve into what it is today.

And, a few things we've added into our lives to expand our mind to continue driving towards the people we want to be. Let's get into it.

Today we're chatting about the importance of ownership and accountability. What is your level of accountability?

87: Inequality
45:41

Today we're talking about an interesting topic: Inequality. This isn't necessarily about racial inequality, as we believe you understand our view on it from previous episodes. What we're referencing is about truly understanding the value of being a human, and how some of us are dealt a different hand than others. What is your perception of inequality in this life? Do you find yourself complaining how others might "have it easier?" How is fear playing a roll in your life? Are you letting it determine your day to day activities, relationships, work life balance? We want to live a life of abundance. Mentally, physically, spiritually, financially and in our relationships. Sometimes it's important to step back and recognize how lucky we are. If you don't feel that way, take a risk and some extra responsibility to create that life of abundance for yourself and those around you.

Today we're chatting about the CEO vs. Employee mentality. Are you running your life or is your life running you? If you take a 30,000 foot look at your life, do you control every meaningful variable? If not, why not?

80: Observations
51:23

Today we're just chatting about a few observations we're seeing through the fitness industry. Some things people still seem to keep over-complicating. Why strength improvement plays a huge roll in physique development. Why a majority of volume training isn't helping you in the long run. Volume training typically leads to pore exercise selection because you're using every machine in the gym. Want big quads? Hit a squat, leg press, hack squat. It's about putting yourself in the prime mechanical position. You need to push yourself and take your training to a brutal place that's going to force stimulus and change.

Are you controlling your controllables? What judgement can be released with this thought? Does this make me more or less of a role model? And finally, discussing what next action of integrity you should take, which we agree may be the most challenging. Get ready to ask yourself some tough questions. Remember, we're here to grow.
