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!Connect With Sue:Instagram: @suegainzWebsite, Coaching, & More: https://linktr.ee/suegainzConnect With Matt:[Free] 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: https://mattmcleod.org/----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod
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!Connect With Robbie:Website: https://sidequestfitness.com/Instagram: @sidequestfitnessConnect With Matt:[Free] 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: https://mattmcleod.org/----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod
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.Connect With Jared:Instagram: @realjaredhamiltonCoaching/Speaking Email: jared@hamiltontrained.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/jaredtaylerhamiltonPodcast: The Hamilton Trained PodcastConnect With Matt:[Free] 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: https://mattmcleod.org/----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod
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/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: https://mattmcleod.org/----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod

Cody was introduced by a mutual friend and this was our first formal interaction together. It felt like one of those rare conversations where you think to yourself, "why have I never heard of this guy before?!" We hit it off like we'd been friends for years. Cody is a fitness coach who focuses on nutrition, performance, and lifestyle. He also coaches other coaches, has an Elite membership site, runs a blog, and produces a successful podcast. Oh, and he's getting married the week this comes out. This guy does it all and this convo reminded me why I wanted to have this podcast in the first place: to connect with good people and share the lessons learned with all of you.

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.Connect with Sam:Website: https://www.oraclefitness.comInstagram: @sammillerscienceOracle Coaching: http://oracle.pages.ontraport.net/AppliedScienceMethodsConnect With Matt:FREE 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: https://mattmcleod.org/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: https://mattmcleod.org/----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod
Online coach, author, digital nomad, and just a genuine guy based out of Spain, Alberto really opened my eyes with this one. I met Alberto a few years ago at an online fitness coaching event held by Mike Vacanti and Jordan Syatt in NYC and we've stayed connected ever since. In this episode we chatted about how he moved to another country at age 16, his adventures traveling to over 100 countries, and, if you listen until the very end, his best tips on staying healthy while traveling. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this amazing convo between two people, thousands of miles away.Connect with Alberto:*Note: his content is mostly Spanish, but you should message/email him to connect.*Website: http://www.themacrowizard.comInstagram: @themacrowizardFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/themacrowizardConnect With Matt:FREE 30-Day Ultimate Physique Development Manual: http://bit.ly/UltimatePhysiqueDevelopmentHire Matt For Coaching: http://mcleodconsultingservices.com/online-coachingInstagram: @mattmcleod6Website: http://mcleodconsultingservices.com----Produced by: David Margittai | In Post MediaWebsite: https://www.inpostmedia.com/Email: david@inpostmedia.comSocial: @_margittai© 2019 Matt McLeod
Lacey is a fellow Registered Dietitian and is a beast of a coach, speaker, and content creator. In this episode we touch on what it really means to be "evidence-based" and how to find credible nutritional information in a time when there's conflicting information everywhere you turn. Although we had to cut it a little short, this episode was a fun one filled with her background story, some advice for new pet owners, some nerdy science talk, and much more.
