How I Plan to Lose the Last 10lbs

In today’s episode, we discuss the approach we decided to take to help get James back in shape after being ill for several weeks. We run through all the steps we took to ensure that we build James’ strength and aerobic fitness up slowly enough so as to not push his body too hard too soon. We share some of the details on the exact training elements we utilized to help him get into his pre-illness shape (or better) and reach his goal weight.

We are excited to share some details on upcoming podcast guests so listen to the end to get the full scoop. There are also some fantastic new Strengtmatters resources coming your way soon so keep an eye on for the latest on that.
