I truly enjoy the long-form podcast medium; especially it’s contrast with that of blogging.  Chalk me up as a member of the Joe Rogan Experience fan-boy club.  The rambling & nuance vs the pin-pointed.  Well, ramble (and hopefully, nuance a bit) I do in this Corporate Warrior podcast, with host Lawrence Neal.

We have the time to flesh-out some concepts in a few areas that really require such fleshing out.  And I really enjoy the opportunity to do just that.  Because hey — context matters, kids!  I won’t rehash the show notes in this post, as Lawrence has done a great job of putting those together, here.  Check them out, and have a listen.  Then, go get your swole on!


Announcement!  The Five Ts ebook is almost complete!

It’s nothing fancy, but it is looking rather good!  An expanded and all-in-one-sock exposition on my Five Ts methodology.  Sign up for the newsletter and you’ll get it for free.  If you’ve already signed up, it’ll be in your hands soon.



C’mon over to the TTP Facebook group for some specific training talk.  It’s a good time, with a good group of swole-minded peeps 🙂

See ya there!


In health, fitness and ancestral wellness –



  1. Great episode.

    I have a query concerning your use of multiple sets. When you do multiple sets, do you treat it like a circuit or do you go straight to the second set? That is, do you do the whole routine first and then come back and do additional sets, or do you just momentarily rest after the first set and proceed right to the second set of a given exercise?

    • Slim,
      As you might expect, the answer varies. And, too, we need to define “circuit”. For instance, most of my clients’ workouts are set in a push/pull combo of 2 exercises done back-to-back. For instance, a chest press of some sort followed by a row of some sort. We would perform 2 sets of this combo, back-to-back, with very little rest between exercises, to “failure” in each exercise. Then, we’d move on to another push/pull combo — maybe a lower body drive/hinge combo (leg press / RDL, for instance). Generally, we can squeeze in 3 such combos within a 30 minute time frame, hitting the full body with push/pull compound movements. This is just the basic template. Of course, client goals, recovery ability, prior training history, injury….all of this must be taken into account. Thus, my reliance upon the Five Ts (http://ancestralmomentum.com/2012/09/the-five-ts/) in determining one’s (including my own) programming.
