We've all heard the phrase "Use it or lose it." We've also all heard the phrase "So's your old man." but that has nothing with this episode in which Matt and Chad talk about the concept of muscle memory and what happens when you take time off of training or switch your focus or goal. They also make the case for consistency in training to help counteract life's little hiccups.
Matt and Chad discuss America's biggest addiction - added sugar - and how it affects performance and everyday life. Let's be honest with ourselves about what sugar does, how much we take in, and why it may or may not be serving our goals or putting up hurdles instead. They also touch on supplements versus whole, real foods. #pendolaproject #relativerunreadinessLinks:NH DEPT of Health: How To Cut Sugar -
Matt cheats on Chad with a guest in the studio, Ryan Golec (@movementmechanix).

I won't say this is Chad writing this description and I also won't say I felt left out. #pendolaproject #relativerunreadiness
