We are back with another episode of our much-loved Q&A-style podcasts!
This was another really fun episode, filled to the brim with the juiciest and most popular questions!
In the fitness industry, there are quite a few controversial & popular topics. In the previous episode, I discussed one of them: steroid use amongst bodybuilders (definitely go check that out if you haven’t yet).
In this episode, I tackle another popular one: FAT BURNERS! Not only do I give you the scoop on the two different types of fat burners that are out there, but I also tell you my absolute favorites (including one that isn’t even known to be a fat burner in the traditional sense) and how to take them safely.
I also give you a little-known tip for shuttling more nutrients into the muscles instead of being stored as fat, how to squat for bigger legs, how to know when to increase calories during a build, and soooo much more!
You are really going to love how much I packed into this episode!

“If you want big quads, you have to make them work harder than they’ve ever worked in their life before. One set of squats is just not going to cut it.” – Mark Getty
“Never save energy on an exercise. You go to failure on your final set of an exercise!”
“A lot of people want to have the rectus abdominis, the six-pack on the front of the body. But those abs are completely useless in terms of keeping your body healthy. The only thing the rectus abdominis muscles are good for is breathing—they just move your diaphragm in and out.”
