Favorite Gym Equipment
I have their 2×2 rack, TX power bar, trap bar, neutral bar, Safety Squat bar and random other items. Love them.
Anything from Rogue
Iron Mind Crush Grippers
Fat Bastard Barbell Company: I have their smaller Inch DB replica their Saxon Pinch bar – love them. Tell Andrew I sent ya
Sorinex: They have been supporting grip strength and all forms of strength for 40 years.
Concept 2 Rower
I love and hate the rower. It is brutal and will always kick you the real deal. I added one to my garage gym 1.5 years ago and it was the best equipment investment of the year.
I can walk out and do everything from an aerobic base session in the AM fasted to a brutal set of intervals. The rower can also be stood up on end so the foot print when not in use is very small.
In my book there is no comparison of rowers out there – the Concept 2 is by far the best. If you can’t afford one now, I would prefer to see you save your money then buy a cheaper one.
I still love the Dragon Door ones. I’ve had them for going on 12+ years now and they still work great. They have traveled all over the USA from S. Padre TX to Hood River OR.
Flex Diet Certification Course
Of course I am biased as I created it! But I believe this really is the best nutrition course you can take online today if you want to be a great nutrition coach.
You are probably wonder why the heck I recommend PN when I created my own nutrition / recovery cert?
Because PN is awesome! Dr John Beradi and his staff has done a stellar job with all the material. I was one of 5 peer reviewers on the latest edition and loved it.
Note: FDC vs PN – If you want to go deep on habit change, do PN first. If you want more of the habit/ pych portion “baked in” and want to go deeper on the physiology aspects, then do FDC first. In the end, I would recommend that you do both.
Optimizing Adaptation & Performance
Optimal Adaptation Performance
I am not overly impressed with many paid lecture products, but this one is epic. I bought it with my own money and this is not sponsored. Excellent lectures from DR James LaValle and Kevin.
Human Performance Course
Carrick Institute for Clinical Neuroscience
Ultra high end athletic performance from strength, cardiovascular, nutrition /recovery and neurology, it has you covered.
I am biased as I spent 4+ years along with Dr Freddys Garcia, Dr Kenneth Jay, Dr Joe Clark and even Dr Carrick himself developing this course from scratch.
We wanted a course that was based on the most up to date research and was practical. I am super proud of how it turned out.
Program Design Course
Run by my good friend Luke. Always great information and fun courses. Not recommended it you are easily offended – I warned ya! Tell Luke I sent ya.
Strength Development Course
Cal Dietz at XL Athlete and TriPhasic Training
I’ve been blessed to know Cal for over 12 years now. Every time I talk to him I learn something new. He is a very rare breed of coach that reads research, is willing to experiment and test his own assumptions.
