    Great podcast !
    Mike always has very factual & informative data to share & this one was very helpful particularly on how much zone 2 & high intensity cardio one should or could do in a week for health & also to not hinder your strength training.

    This looks like down to earth guide on how to lose weight and get shredded faster. I am a pretty fit person, but this info seems fairly useful and user friendly to all kinds of people.

    It’s okay if you don’t get fitness right the first time episode is a great listen. I really like the emphasis on there isn’t a magic program that will work for everyone. Every person and body is different and some things make work for some that don’t for others.

    Yohumbe episode
    Mike, thank you for the recent episode on yohimbine. I recently purchased forge and know a little bit about yohimbine from previous use and was wondering if it caused any bloating? It seems like every time I used to take it. It cost significant bloating, and I’m not sure if this is just specific to the supplement or the other additives included in forge? Thank you and I really love your podcast. I did download your audiobook recently on Amazon and I will probably get a second book which is the one related to the more geriatric crowd lol I think you give solid information. I hope to hear a little bit more about some of your supplements that are on your website like lunar and the greens supplement. Also, PLEASE include any information you have about the benefits of supplemental L carnitine in the form of a liquid shot. I recently purchased some from Amazon. Basically, it is a liquid shot that is flavored. A lot of the claims I’ve read include that L carnitine in a fasted state helps with fat loss. I was wondering if this is in anyway, true? Thank you so much for all that you do!!! ~Rita

    Fanatical right-wing politics
    The intrusion of the host’s far right politics makes it an impossible listen.

    It offers a refreshing perspective on Fitness, emphasizing self compassion and embracing the Journey rather than fixating on immediate results
  • Seiya4Eva
    Great topic for working out
    I liked very much the distinction between calisthenics and body building. Either training will get you results if you put the work in. No pain, no gain.

  • puppylover
    Interesting podcast
    I’ve been putting a lot of stress on myself to work out hard for quick results. I’ve gotten frustrated at the fact that sometimes it doesn’t work out that way for me. This podcast has helped me realize that sometimes it takes time to achieve what you want.

    As someone who struggles to stick to a workout routine, this podcast made me think about my relationship with fitness and how I can make small changes to re-commit myself to consistent fitness.
  • thudoloo
    Thank you Mike
    This was honestly really helpful. I’ve been struggling to commit to a routine, and every time that I start one, thinking that I will commit this time, my plans end up falling through. “Train now, reflect later” really spoke to me. I struggle with the fear of not reaching my fitness goal, but I need to learn to push those thoughts away train now and we’ll get to that bridge when we get there.
  • pooolly00
    I discovered the podcast randomly but I scrolled and listened to a lot of his podcast. I actually find the podcast very informative and accurate to the science behind a lot of the stuff he talks about. I really enjoyed.
  • Hhhfgbrhbfhfsdghhhhbg
    Mike has a great way of sharing an empowering message about exploring and finding your own fitness style. He believes one should find their own way into fitness and ignore other people’s attempts to control your own path.
  • DL303808
    The best fitness podcast
    I read Mike’s book several years ago and then a few years back began listening to his podcast. I ended up going back to the beginning and listened to all of his podcasts. He’s a good guy with straightforward advice and great guests. His products are also great. I’m a fan.

    Amazing Insights
    I really enjoyed this episode because I enjoyed hearing the importance of self-reflection from a fitness coach. Often, we are taught to look outside of ourselves, but I love how Mike encourages inner-work, while also encouraging us to create community around our progress!
