The Art of the Deload

Editor’s note: Every month I write a column for Muscle & Fitness magazine called “Born Fit.” In it, I answer real questions asked by real people on Twitter. This post focuses on deloads, “off weeks,” and how to schedule your rest. Because magazines have limited space (and I like to write too much), sometimes my responses need to be…… More

What’s the Best Home Gym Equipment?

Editor’s note: Every month I write a column for Muscle & Fitness magazine called “Born Fit.” In it, I answer real questions asked by real people on Twitter. This post focuses on home gyms. Because magazines have limited space (and I like to write too much), sometimes my responses need to be condensed. These are my unedited answers…… More

Is Organic Reach Dead on Facebook?

[Ear muff warning] “What the fuck Facebook?” Step inside Born Fitness headquarters and it’s a phrase you were likely to hear just a few months ago. I assume we’re not the only ones who uttered those words after Facebook implemented yet another News Feed sorting algorithm. For those not familiar, Facebook has drastically reduced a business’ organic reach…… More

#BeTheChange Giveaway

What happens when you give lottery tickets to people for free? Something incredible. Just the other day I saw a post on The Chive about #RAKit week. For those of you not familiar, we’re talking “random acts of kindness.” This is the type of thing The Chive does: pay it forward and make others feel awesome. And their…… More

On one end of the spectrum you have the “cardio haters.” You know them as the people that believe cardio is a complete…… More

The 4-Step Biceps Builder

Some of the fittest people I’ve ever met train a lot. That probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but for people who are constantly in fear of overtraining, it’s an eye-opener to understand how much good programming is one of the most important factors that determine how often you can hit the gym. I remember…… More

Fat Burning Supplements That Actually Work?

“Fat loss supplements are bullshit.” It was the lede to a story I wrote back in 2008. Not the most eloquent prose, but to the point and honest. The intro was killed, the story lived on, and to this day my approach to fat loss has been about minimum effective dose: Smart nutrition + Effective…… More

Born Fitness Recipes: Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

I don’t eat breakfast very often, but breakfast foods are one of my favorite things to eat. From eggs and chicken sausage, to waffles, pancakes, and french toast, it’s hard to go wrong with any morning meal favorite. The problem? Many carb loaded breakfast foods clock in at thousands of calories, and there’s nothing about…… More

Your Online Sale is Failing. Here’s Why

When you only run 2 sales per year, making big money is supposed to be easy. Or at least that’s what you’d imagine. But if were to have looked at the total sales after the first 4 hours of our bi-annual sale, you would have thought we’d never done this before. That’s what happens when you…… More

Breakfast is Not the Most Important Meal

For years I told people that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Eat a big meal to start the day and everything will be ok. I published the advice in three books, referenced the smartest minds in nutrition, and the tip was generally accepted as “the right thing” to do for your…… More
