9 Things You Should Never Do to Lose Fat

Today I'm giving you 9 things you should never do to lose fat.  Listen, being fat tells people more than you're a lazy f*ck who enjoys beer and sh*tty food. Being physically soft tells people you're mentally and emotionally soft.  It says you can't be trusted. It says you're undisciplined and have no self-control.  It says you're not an asset... You're a liability. And the responsibility to change that falls on no one but you. So press play, avoid these 9 things, and get to work on becoming the man you, your family, and the world needs you to be.  The one thing that will keep you fat, FOREVER. [9:10] Why cheat meals are bullsh*t (do this instead). [10:14] Most people make this mistake... And get nowhere. [14:03] Keep this ace up your sleeve. [23:05] You couldn't pay me enough to do this. [27:03] Don't fall victim to believing these myths. [28:17] You need this activity to optimize your hormones, performance, and fat loss.

“4 TRILLION dollars was spent in the US healthcare system this past year and you can’t even prevent a f*cking cold?  We could be saving so many lives if the system was focused on health.” Shawn Stevenson is the creator and host of The Model Health Show.  Each week he releases a “masterclass” episode diving into a wide range of health-related topics.  He uncovers the very best health information in the world and helps people create their own unique model of health, happiness and success.   This week Shawn brought his masterclass right here to Renegade Radio.  We cover why the methods we’ve been forced to follow during the pandemic have failed miserably and what we should do instead.  We also discuss how to prevent many of the diseases that are the top killers in the US, how to eat for glowing health and a great physique, and much more!

[1:25:37] The incredible health benefits of coffee.  [1:28:54] Why what we’ve been led to believe about the pandemic is not what we should actually fear.  [1:31:35] This episode is brought to you by Belcampo.  Food quality matters, especially when it comes to the meat you eat!  Belcampo’s farms produce only the highest quality grass-fed, grass-finished meat.  Their beef, lamb, pork and poultry is certified organic and humanely raised on a climate positive farm.

What about per muscle group?  Should you train the calves with the same rep range as the shoulders?  What if some muscles are predominantly fast twitch, and others are slow twitch?

#308: Why You Should Risk It All (and Quit Your Job)

There’s an old saying, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”   In simpler terms this means in order to accomplish anything great in your life you’re going to have to be willing to take some risks.   When I first met Brian Pannuzzo, he was a Wallstreet Executive and a 7-figure earner.  He had money, nice cars, expensive clothes and a beautiful home.     He was successful by most people’s standards.   And, he was unfulfilled.     Realizing the job, title, high income and all the toys in the world couldn’t bring him enduring happiness and fulfillment, he decided to risk it all to pursue his true purpose and passion.  He quit his job, moved his family from the East Coast to California, and found his true calling in life.   Now he is inspired by the work he does, coaching and helping men whose financial success has cost them their health, marriage and relationships.   Whether there are a few things about your life that could be better, or you’re looking for a massive overhaul to change your entire existence, you’ll learn how to do it in this episode.   Listen as we discuss:   Brian’s journey from Wall Street to doing what he was born to do. [9:41] The ripple effect created from stepping away from his one-dimensional life. [12:44] The importance of hiring a coach to TRANSFORM your own life. [17:10] Why self-belief is critical. [20:41] Why you MUST step out of your comfort zone to grow. [23:29] Life is about experiences, don’t waste it! [25:20] Why you must surround yourself with people that support, believe in, and challenge you! [27:56] How to remove crabs from your bucket.

#305: The Quest for a Greater Purpose with Dawson’s Peak Founder, Matt Dawson

In 2016 Matt Dawson, the Creator and Founder of Dawson’s Peak, was successful by most people’s standards but he still felt an unshakeable sense of unhappiness and lack of fulfillment. He became increasingly disheartened because of his lack of a greater purpose.   The best way he knew to bring about dramatic change was to intentionally put himself into uncomfortable situations and strive to push his own limits. With no previous climbing experience, he climbed some of the most extreme mountains in the world including Mt. Everest, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Ri and Cho La Pass.   Spending his days hiking, reading and writing, he discovered the introspective/meditative elements of being in nature, hiking and climbing.   It was then he was hit with the inspiration for Dawson’s Peak, a public charity which looks to stage multiple global expeditions meant to inspire people by pushing the boundaries of peak human potential, and he discovered his life’s purpose.   If you’re in search of purpose and passion in your own life, you don’t want to miss this episode.   This episode is brought to you by Organifi.

#303: How to Optimize Your Hormones and Maximize Your Sleep with Dr. Kirk Parsley

This episode includes the deepest dive on hormone optimization and HRT that we've ever had on Renegade Radio. So, it will be of extreme interest to all men over 35, and especially those over 40.    Find out everything you can and should be doing to get your testosterone and other hormones to optimal levels. And why NOT doing that could lead to all kinds of health problems.    We also go into great detail on everything you should be doing to maximize your sleep so that you can always perform at the highest level.    After retiring from active duty as a U.S. Navy SEAL, Dr. Kirk Parsley began treating his fellow servicemen. In time he noticed a direct correlation between his patients’ sub-optimal hormone levels and poor sleep habits. He helped them experience phenomenal results by addressing both issues.   He became Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He invented Sleep Remedy, a dietary supplement designed to help people overcome the most common nutritional deficiencies that can interfere with deep, restorative sleep. Dr. Parsley is also certified in hormone modulation, consults for multiple corporations and professional athletes and teams, and lectures all over the world on sleep, wellness, and hormone optimization.   This episode will not only teach you the importance of optimizing your hormones and sleep, but it also gives you actionable tips to help you do both.   Note: When Dr. Parsley refers to “sub q” injections, this means subcutaneous.   Listen as we discuss:   How he became a U.S. Navy SEAL and found his way into med school even though he was a terrible student. [7:06]   How the secrets his fellow SEALS kept from their doctors led him to specialize in sleep and hormone optimization. [17:18]   What led to the “light bulb” moment when he realized sleep was the key to optimal health and performance? [21:50]   How often should guys in their 40’s have their bloodwork done? [31:18]   What are the most important blood tests for guys in their 40’s and beyond? [35:38]   Does low testosterone double your risk of disease and death? [46:31]   Testosterone causes prostate cancer, right? Think again… [47:12]   What is the ideal test level for a man? [48:55]   The optimal frequency for HRT and why intramuscular injections aren’t the most effective way to take it. [53:23]   The scary truth about surgery when you’re 40 or older and how Kirk helps patients recover much faster. [59:53]   Effective ways to recover from a concussion. [1:09:42]   Symptoms of low testosterone and the MOST effective thing you can do to fix it. [1:17:46]   Is the correlation between testosterone levels and erectile dysfunction misunderstood? [1:26:08]   The devastating consequences of just ONE night without enough sleep. [1:29:36]   Why optimal hormone levels are as beneficial to your brain as they are to your body. [1:39:30]   His top tips for improving your sleep tonight. [1:45:54]   Is there an optimal time of day to train to optimize performance and sleep? [1:59:50]   What is Doc Parsley’s Sleep Remedy? [2:04:03]     This episode is brought to you by Magic Spoon. Who doesn’t love a nice big bowl of cereal?
