Sue Bush - How To Do Hard Things And Live Life On Your Terms | MTFP Ep.29
I've known Sue for a long time as we actually went to school together at the University of Kentucky. Thing is, Sue graduated with a Journalism degree and didn't know what she wanted to do with her life until college was starting to wrap up. But she took a chance on herself and finally got away from her previous life of college partying several nights a week. Her pain to change became higher than her pain to remain the same, and she never looked back. She now works as a coach full-time, recently bought a beautiful home with a previous podcast guest, Alex Bush, and is living her best life. Sue has an INCREDIBLE story and she made this one of my favorite chats yet. I promise you won't regret giving it a listen!

Robbie Farlow - A Pantless Interview On How To Make Your 30s Better Than Your 20s | MTFP Ep.28
I met Robbie last year at a business event in NYC through mutual friend, John Romaniello. We bonded over whiskey, Call of Duty 4, and our Hawaiian shirts. Fast forward to now and we had amazing conversation catching up about how he got to where he is today. Starting out with passions to be an actor, he soon realized his actions didn't match his ambitions and shortly after fell in love with weights. Today, he shares his knowledge to other nerdly, but beautiful, men like himself to make their 30s better than their 20s. It was a great convo and we actually dove super deep into his relationship with his father, revealing common obstacles that some of you may be facing today. Check him out, and enjoy the show!

Jared Hamilton - MMA, Puppies, And Figuring Out What To Do With Your Life | MTFP Ep.27
Jared Hamilton is a long-time friend of mine and we had a very down-to-earth conversation together. As usual, the conversation went along several different avenues, but one I was very interested in was his background with MMA and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I love learning new skills and MMA is one that has really piqued my interest lately, so naturally I had a million and one questions about how to get started, what to expect, etc. Then, we transitioned into talking about his dogs -- he has 2 pitbulls and a german shepherd, so I wanted to hear his thoughts on those who bad mouth his dog breeds of choice--and eventually landed in a back-and-forth about what we wanted to do with our futures. It was a smorgasbord of different things, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. Happy listening, and check him out below.

DrunkCast Q & A #2 | MTFP Ep.26
Aaaaand we're BACK with the second installment of the DrunkCast Q & A. This is the monthly(ish) podcast where I get to sip on some smooth Kentucky bourbon and answer your questions about diet, exercise, and everything in-between.  Full list of questions [with timestamps]: [4:02] 1) You wake up one day 100 years in the future. The world is fucked. Like, way worse than Mad Max or Fallout 3. And there’s only one government left trying to save and revive humanity. But this government has discovered time travel. And they have a plan to save humanity: they will send one human back in time to bring back 12 of the biggest names from history to fight to the death to become the next leader of humanity. That human they choose is you. What 12 people from history do you pick (good, evil, male, female, historically known or not so well known — doesn’t matter)? [18:23] 2) I hate love handles but I hate cutting more. The one time I saw some improvement was when I cut carbs drastically. Progress reversed pretty quickly though (pasta is life). Advice? [21:13] 3) If you could be any animal, what would you be? [26:22] 4) What is your biggest workout killer? Mine is when I get to the gym and have to take a dookie. Workout = dunzo [28:32] 5) I’m a 41 year old mother of 2 (ages 6 and 9), 5’ 2.5” tall, weigh 108 lbs. I workout (boot camp classes at my local gym) 4x a week, eat 80/20 and am still skinny-fat (flabby triceps and thighs). I’m sure it’s tough to help with such limited info, but any ideas how to get that (admittedly little) yet very apparent and annoying fat burned off?? Thank you! [34:24] 6) How many 8 year olds could you beat in a fight - explain your strategy [37:31] 7) Why is 85g the standard serving size for vegetables and fruits?  [38:51] 8) If there was such thing as McLeod’s law. What would it entail?  [41:11] 9) Are probiotics necessary?  [46:28] 10) How to shred fat without counting calories? [51:22] 11) Boxers or briefs? [53:09] 12) Food combining, fact or myth? [56:49] 13) What’s your favorite family trip?  Connect With Matt: [Free] 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopment Hire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coaching Instagram: @mattmcleod6 Website: https://mattmcleod.org/ ---- Produced by: David Margittai | In Post Media Website: https://www.inpostmedia.com/ Email: david@inpostmedia.com Social: @_margittai © 2019 Matt McLeod

Cody was introduced by a mutual friend and this was our first formal interaction together.

Sam Miller - Productivity Strategies, Hormone Optimization, And Staying On Track While Traveling | MTFP Ep.23
I know you'll like Sam because this is what he has in his Instagram bio: "Goal: know all the things without being a dick about it." I feel like that's reasonable, right? Well, whether you agree or not, Sam's knowledge is impressive. He's a big hormones nerd, learning nerd, and coaching nerd. Which, it shows, because he does an amazing job at translating these complex topics and breaking them down into applicable info for his audience. He coaches other coaches, but also has online fitness clients as well. We had a super casual conversation that was probably my most practical episode yet, with tons of takeaways by the time you finish up. Check him out, and I hope you enjoy.

Online coach, author, digital nomad, and just a genuine guy based out of Spain, Alberto really opened my eyes with this one.

Dr. Jacob Harden is a chiropractor based out of Orlando, FL and has one of the most helpful Instagram's I've ever followed when it comes to all things pain. It's no secret he's passionate about his craft, but he's even more passionate about helping others. His positivity and simplistic manner of breaking down complex topics is one of a kind.

Kaylin Pyles - Demanding The Best From Yourself And Setting A Higher Standard | MTFP Ep.17
Kaylin had an incredibly motivating back story in this one. Out of high school, she was a D1 softball player and was filled with ambition, drive, and an eagerness to be better. The problem was she didn't bring this mentality into her career path until she had had enough of working a typical 9-5 with no room to grow. She knew there was more to life and so she set out trying to find it, traveling from city to city until she settled in her current home of Columbus, OH. She's an in-person trainer, an online trainer, and an overall badass, empowering women everywhere. Whether it's sleeping on the floor with strangers to pursue your dreams or talking about the pros and cons of breast implants - this convo covered it. Enjoy!

DrunkCast Q & A | MTFP Ep.16
I needed an excuse to drink on a random Tuesday night, so I decided doing a drunken Q & A sounded fun ⏤ and it was. I asked my audience to give me their best questions on training, nutrition, life, and more, and they delivered. I, however, did exactly how I thought I would: kinda okay. Most answers were fine, but keep an ear out for more slurring and errors as the podcast goes on. I had fun doing it and if the response is good, I'll do more. Hope you enjoy! Timestamps for Questions: [01:54] I’ve been reading up about Stoicism as you know. One of the themes is around discipline over motivation. Do you think motivation is short-term? And how do you just get shit done? [07:07] What's one piece of advice that has stuck with you for years and you'll always remember? Can be about anything- life, fitness, nutrition, etc. [10:45] Do you think Instagram is a time waster? Where do you draw the line? [14:09] When you decided to join the fitness industry, did you ever feel apprehensive about not pursuing a "regular job" that could provide the assurance of financial security? What should people do if faced with a similar question? [19:00] Why do people purposefully arch their back in what looks like a very uncomfortable manner when they do bench press? [20:06] My problem is that I have become so ingrained with "progressive overload," that I think I have to constantly increase the weight, reps or sets every single session. I feel like if I am not able to hit 5-10lbs more on my DL from last week, then the workout is a failure. This has lead me to often get extremely anxious/nervous. I want to keep making progress and push myself but I'm not sure this is the most effective approach. [23:26] What are you currently drinking and is that your go to drink? [24:39] If you could get $100M by gaining 100 lbs, but you had to stay at that weight forever, would you do it? [25:12] How do you approach training/nutrition following a significant injury/surgery? I had ankle surgery 7 weeks ago, I couldn’t put any weight on it for 6 weeks and now able to slowly transition to weightbearing with a boot on. How do you adjust training/nutrition now that I’m able to get back into things? [30:25] How many 1st graders could you take in a fight? [32:07] You just joined the team from The Fast and The Furious. What is your car of choice? [32:53] What can someone do to make you automatically think “I don’t like this person”? [34:21] What’s the best way to move on from mistakes? In life or fitness. [36:42] Do you think by doing a podcast, you’re able to speak/communicate better than before? [39:54] If lifting 3x per week, is full body a good option?
