We discuss beach body workouts, what it means to have a "good" exercise program, and the truth about greens powders and how they impact your health.

Urban warfare expert, John Spencer (@SpencerGuard on X), demystifies the Israel Gaza War. He's been on the ground both in Israel and in Gaza since the war began (and many times before), and has seen first-hand what both sides are doing and how they're trying to accomplish their goals. In this conversation, John breaks down the myths and facts of the Israel Gaza war so you know the truth about what's going on. John discusses: - Israel's use of 2,000 pound bombs - Hamas's use of human shields - The total loss of life on both sides and Israel's response (is it proportionate?) - The extent of Hamas's tunnel system (you won't believe this) - Israel's state-of-the-art facial recognition system to identify enemy combatants - And much, much more. I hope you enjoy this episode, And if you do, please leave a 5-star review because I know many will get angry at me for posting this and give me 1-star reviews lol. -J

In this episode of The Jordan Syatt Mini-Podcast, I have an in-depth conversation with my podcast producer, Tony, all about home gyms. I talk about my first pieces of home gym equipment,  my recommendations for those getting started building their own home gym, what my dream pieces of home gym equipment are, and how to build a great home gym on a budget.  I discuss the psychology of training at home vs in a commercial gym, my current home gym setup, and why I actually like the much maligned smith machine for strength training.  I also talk about ginormous spiders in Texas, Chuck Norris, and the dark underbelly of the puppy adoption industry.  Buying home gym equipment?  Check out my top picks on Amazon (these are affiliate links, so purchasing through them will help support the podcast at no additional cost to you.  If you end up buying with the links, thank you!). https://www.amazon.com/shop/jordansyatt/list/16XG3KWRCIZLT?ref_=cm_sw_r_apin_aipsflist_aipsfjordansyatt_CHDXEJD6G21YBVGFKVJ1&language=en_US .

In this episode of The Jordan Syatt Mini-Podcast, I tell the crazy Vietnamese Karaoke story. I also answer questions from the listeners with my podcast producer, Tony.  We discuss topics like how to motivate a loved one to live a healthier lifestyle, what to do about unhealthy triggers on social media and in your social circles, and strategies for nurses and people with difficult schedules that struggle with binge eating.  We also talk about the quagmire that is pregnancy diet advice, the minimum effective dose as the cure for getting back into fitness, and the amazing benefits of immersion for learning about other cultures, languages, and yourself.   Check out a previous Q&A episode where I talk about what to do if a loved one is being overly restrictive with their diet: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-jordan-syatt-mini-podcast/id1348856817?i=1000646777868 .

In this episode of The Jordan Syatt Mini-Podcast, I have an in-depth conversation with my podcast producer, Tony, all about training as you age. I talk about how aging affects everything from fat loss, to strength, to muscle growth... but the core principles of training stay the same throughout your entire life. I go over why younger folks have an advantage at building strength and muscle, how women tend to approach training with more enthusiasm later in life, and how TRT is the same thing as steroids (sorry, not sorry) regardless of what people claim.  I also talk about why aesthetics for trained individuals are greatly affected by genetics, how steroids are linked to high blood pressure and other severe health risks, how protein pulsing may have some benefits for training as you age, and how it's never too late to start taking your health and fitness seriously and make huge improvements.

In this episode of The Jordan Syatt Mini-Podcast, I have an in-depth conversation with my trusty podcast producer, Tony, all about strength standards for men, women, and advanced athletes. While creating my own set of strength standards for advanced athletes, I also talk about relative vs absolute strength, why I don't use olympic lifts as a general standard, which lifts I do set standards for, and why I think strength standards need to be different for men and women. I also talk about why I don't think reaching these advanced strength standards actually matters in real life, the time I met Dan John, and why it's hard to keep making "Real Life" episodes for YouTube.

This was one of the best podcasts that I have ever listened to about training. I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey and I learned a huge amount of knowledge about strength training. I never knew so much knowledge went into creating a program. What is your best advice for a women starting out with strength training?

loved this episode. I think the 123 concept and the consistency while writing in the memory on the inconsistent day is very helpful.

So refreshing to come across real honest truths about topics regarding food and fitness. This podcast reminds me that small steps are big wins and that we are all human. so....when life happens it's ok to have happiness and enjoyment over food and drinks. love the x's and o's consistency strategy.... especially since I'm an all or nothing kinda gal!! Many thanks!

I gave up alcohol in 2018 for the year and it was crazy how some friends reacted. they really took it personally even though it didnt impact them and I still went for regular nights out. I am back to drinking but I never go over a certain amount and I dont understand how people who get hungover would want to feel like that regularly 🤷🏻‍♀️ its pointless calories and a huge waste of money

I agree with your take on optimism. I read Viktor Frankyls book years ago and he said the greatest freedom we have is to choose our attitude in any situation

Kelley, we're we switched at birth? everything you've said/thought is exactly the way I feel too. PS, been on a 'diet' since 6 months old, over 40 years (the title of this episode made me turn it on immediately)

Everytime he speaks about fitness I find myself nodding my head in agreement. He lays things out perfectly and is totally real about it. He says things in a way my brain and heart understand and I'm so here for it! Thank you Jordan for being you! Beep boop ⚡

Great stuff! Very helpful discussion about breaking things down to a few big "rocks" that you can focus on and do consistently, because consistency is number one.
