This week’s episode is about finding that proverbial middle-ground or “balance” for each of us. One of the most common misunderstandings for many attempting dieters, new lifters, their significant others and family members is being limited to black and white thinking.In this episode, we use a swinging pendulum as a metaphor to walk through spending time at both “extremes” before settling into a balanced middle ground.Give this one a listen to better help understand the roles seasons and cycles of periodization play in helping you find that balance for yourself.Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
This week we have Kassem Hanson back on the podcast to graciously shine a light on the state of what the current literature suggests for training at short and long muscle lengths.Kas covers variance in the degree of lengthened position in biarticular vs monoarticular muscles, theoretical and practical benefits for maximally training the lengthened position, and reasons you should also still train in the shortened position, and plausible roles of titin in the three-filament model on increasing mechanical tension.Put on your thinking caps for this one. You’re going to need it. 🤓Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Unfortunately along your fitness/training journey dealing with an injury is something that you are almost guaranteed to have to deal with. Dealing with many between the two of us over the years we’ve put together some approaches (both mental and physical) for navigating minor and more serious injuries in a productive manner that helps you recover from them as quickly as possible, whilst making the best use of the non-injured parts of your body. Which often is quite a lot!Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
Heads up! In the introduction of this episode, we were planning a conversation around dealing with training injuries and setbacks. But as our conversation unfolded there was a lot of great context in the conversation on the backend of Bryan’s recently wrapped up calorie deficit and photoshoot.Specific periods of nutritional periodization such as dieting to uncommonly low levels of body fat and attempting to game time a physique for a photoshoot provide excellent opportunities to have conversations about the intricacies of approaches and execution.In next week’s episode, we will release the episode on handling training injuries and setbacks.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
Today’s episode topic is all about how we approach coaching clients, and in what ways we account for these three components: evidence-based, personal preference, and anecdote. Do we tend to use all three equally? Or do we put more credence in one more?We break this topic into our two main pillars, of course, training and nutrition. And detail our coaching approaches respectively for each.This episode ends up being a very productive and insightful conversation into the limitations of applying some research, and the power of anecdote and preference when you’re finding yourself at the far ends of the spectrum.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
We kick off this week’s episode of Eat Train Prosper with Bryan detailing some of the challenges this diet has presented him. Then, we move into some not-so-commonly discussed factors influencing when you might take a deload. Psychological fatigue versus waiting for a loss of performance.We also talk a little bit about approaches for ending “very hard” sets. Grinding through reps vs. cutting a rep once momentum stops and leveraging lengthened partials. Then we wrap up with some points around the various utility shortened overload movements can have outside the context of maximizing hypertrophy and what to look for in knowing you’re recovered to train again as your training age progresses.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
This week on the podcast we are covering our top 5 important aspects to consider implementing to create the most productive gaining period you possibly can. We go into depth on the reasoning behind each of these top selections and important considerations for each. This episode ranges from gaining based on your training age, how much muscle you are attempting to put on, what changes to your training would be more practical during gaining, and what you should be considering from a nutrition standpoint to make the most out of the months ahead. We also sprinkle into this episode some of our lessons learned the hard way from previous years of doing this incorrectly.Thanks for listening! ✌️Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

This week we are back with another monthly edition of the Instagram Q&A episode format. This is definitely a favorite recurring format that we will continue to do. The questions covered this week:Training with slow perfect reps with stretch/contract versus fast explosive reps with more weight?What courses do you feel a trainer should do or the best ways to educate himself?Do you think there is a per-session training stimulus that must be achieved within that given in order to see gains in hypertrophy? For example, is it possible that one could experience faster gains by doing 3 sets in one session rather than 1 set spread out over 3 days of the week? From a beginner's standpoint, would it be more beneficial to focus on the big lifts? If so, what role would machines and cables play in a beginner's workout plan? If one’s diet consists of beef/chicken would adding fats from nuts be beneficial? What are examples of metabolic training?Optimal quad hypertrophy 2x/week programming?After a 12-week cut, is it better to do a maintenance phase or start a lean bulk?Short/intense full-body session almost every day? Like 2 sets per body part in different splits?I like benching for hypertrophy, but seems like everyone on the internet is saying it’s terrible?How do you determine whether the arm path of a given exercise is good or bad and lines up with joints? Do either of you do one-off consults, or just pay for an hour of your time? Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
This is a bit of a different episode. We take a devil’s advocate stance to where nuance simply might not matter. It’s an introspective conversation exploring the simple question of, “What if this all doesn’t actually lead to more hypertrophy?” That question becomes an interesting conversation for sure.Thanks for listening!Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
What started out as an Instagram Q&A box question has become a full-length pod episode where we walk you through some of our mechanical tension / same muscle group superset pairings. We get into the contexts for which each pairing may be most appropriate and some of the deciding factors that went into our choices. Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

What are the key factors to break past the intermediate lifter phase? It seems that many get stuck in the lifetime intermediate stage. So, how do you go from intermediate to advanced?In today’s episode, we break down this very question. We approach this question from various aspects both inside and outside of training. In addition to providing our personal anecdotes which have helped us breakthrough that intermediate plateau. We also provide some of the pitfalls of why some never do.Thanks for listening! ✌️Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

This week on the podcast we get into some recent updates for Bryan’s end of systemic metabolic training as he shifts into a local metabolic phase. Aaron shares a (likely) final update on his lower back injury. Then the conversation shifts into our respective “Endgames.” The short, medium, and long term goals for our times spent in the fitness industry at large, and what we hope to provide back to a space that has given us both so much value in our lives.Thanks for listening! ✌️Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST
This week on the Eat Train Prosper podcast: taking ownership of your own health. Bryan and Aaron go into some details of a recent set of labwork from Bryan. Aaron covers some interesting findings of Bryan’s Testosterone levels, and we explore potential reasonings as to why and why not this might matter. Aaron shares thoughts around why it’s important to take ownership of your own internal health and to get things looked at. We share our anecdotal findings of subjective positives of the recent Metabolic Training we are both currently performing. Then we wrap up with a discussion around some of the complicated reasonings as to why pulling conclusions from emerging research studies might be problematic and what could be a more appropriate path.Thanks for listening! ✌️Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

We kick off today’s episode with a small fix to an answer we provided during episode #61 Q&A regarding adding additional sets as a method of increasing stimulus. We also touch on RP’s “Compound-Isolation Sandwich Training” and decide whether cycling carbohydrates during periods of overfeeding has applicable utility.In coordination with the upcoming Evolved and Paragon training cycles that Bryan provides, we cover what you need to know about metabolic training, whether systemic or local. And how these might be incorporated into your training.Bryan Updates: 1. Diet starting 2. Metabolic Cycle (discuss later in the episode)3. Blood Work / DEXA 4. Mouth procedure 5. Nasal breathing6. HRV questions/insights *Random readings super low; scheduled readings super high 7. Interesting tidbit on Casein absorption speed (from SBS)Aaron Updates:1. Tweaked something in my back last Wednesday, haven’t trained since.Oddly, the most painful thing is being seated2. Had an opportunity to get paid to give a presentation to a team of nutrition coaches.3. First time as a paid educator.The correct URL for Beardsley's post: Original Question from 3 episodes ago: Do you consider adding a set for an exercise as a way to “increase stimulus?” Just add a few sets as needed over the course of a meso. Kind of like what Chris Beardsley put together in this infographichttps://www.instagram.com/p/CYtjD7hgZAJ/Additional Q from an Instagram DM I recently watched this video by Dr Mike called compound isolation sandwich training: https://youtu.be/UhLCTU_6iFYThe jist was to do a compound first, then isolation, and then another compound with more than one degree of freedom E.g. hack squat, leg extension, then barbell squat. He said that having more than one degree of freedom was important such that other muscles couldn't take over and reduce load to target muscles, in this example the extra degrees of freedom from the squat ensures the quads are still working hard whereas, on a leg press, the glutes may take over and do most of the work reducing quad stimulus.  I'm wondering though, that due to the instability of a movement with more degrees of freedom, it would be harder to push that exercise to failure safely and therefore that may be less stimulus than a more stable exercise.This is a very nuanced question and I know they are both great approaches and will get good results. But I was curious about your thoughts, do you think one is superior and why? And learning a little more about degrees of freedom would be super interesting.
