Most people waste years in the gym.

Not only do they not get any leaner, bigger, or stronger but they destroy their joints and CNS while they're at it. Ouch.

I've been there.

I've tried everything under the sun.

Through thirty years of experiments - on myself and my clients - I've figured out what works and what doesn't...

These 5 common training myths simply don't work.

In fact, they're likely holding you back and making your results worse. And I'm here today to tell you how.

  • Myth #1 - You should ALWAYS train to failure. [2:52]
  • Myth #2 - You should arch your back on squats and deadlifts. [8:42]
  • Myth #3 - You need priming/activation exercises. [17:27]
  • Myth #4 - Dietary variety is important. [20:25]
  • Myth #5 - HIIT burns more fat than low intensity cardio. [23:52]
