1:30how did you tell us how did you first
1:32get interested in bodybuilding you know
1:36I think like most people I seen arnold
1:40schwarzenegger and pumping iron that you
1:44know you actually was a conan the
1:46destroyer is second big movie if you
1:50look at that movie man i look at you
1:52know I’ve been a big fan of our my whole
1:54life and he was in the best shape ever
1:57for that movie like you know it’s no
2:01wonder when i was a kid i see that i was
2:03so starstruck
2:05no but it was my dad’s a large man 65
2:09200-pound dude you know real physical
2:12athlete that comes from a family of
2:14athletes and i remember when i see that
2:17was a kid myself in my dad was like
2:18Samantha said that cuz big my dad was
2:22like son
2:23that’s always forcing their seven-time
2:25mr. olympia he’s huge and in that moment
2:28I instantly went from like looking at my
2:31pop is like the greatest thing ever to
2:33like look like this guy you know
2:35wow wow wow it says you have you had
2:38gone through chemo yet leukemia do you
2:40remember anything or what was that like
2:42yeah unfortunately I remember like a lot
2:44of that but you know it’s so long ago
2:47feels like a lifetime ago it’s it’s
2:49crazy to think that that was be you know
2:5230 years ago you know it was you know
2:59it’s like a scary time for me I was a
3:00little scared little kid and announcer
3:03and very painful you know they didn’t
3:08they had a lot of different way to the
3:09way they did things back then were a lot
3:13of experimental techniques and whatnot
3:15and I know that now I’ve actually
3:17reached out to a kid that I found out
3:19had got leukemia year ago year and a
3:22half ago and I go to go see him every
3:24once in awhile and his family just kind
3:26of I don’t know being some sort of
3:29inspiration that little know that like
3:30you can get through it you know
3:31sure sure and i found out that they put
3:35these kids out for a lot of the
3:36procedures that i was awake for 30 years
3:39ago so also they had you awake for those
3:41procedures i have an indigenous you have
3:44managed to stick like these this huge
3:46needle in my spine model extract bone
3:50marrow from my spine to analyze it to
3:52make sure that the lucky you didn’t get
3:54into my bones and I was just in my blood
3:57and that I mean you know huge needle
4:00jabbed into your spine at me just start
4:02by saying that age
4:04yeah i mean how did that like added
4:05looking at that experience I had that
4:07effect you later on how that affected
4:09you all accomplished
4:11it’s funny you say that when i was a kid
4:14it was the that
4:16is it was one thing to get you know my
4:18blood drawn in my arms and my hands and
4:21I bees and I had a cat there they stuck
4:23in my chest and to hang out of me for
4:25like a couple months you know and that
4:29was that was one thing you know what
4:30down they put me out for that was nice
4:33but the the you know it would come every
4:37so many months I don’t remember how many
4:38miles but they do these this you know
4:40this thing with this bone marrow and
4:42they take this huge needle take 18 gauge
4:44needles to get straw you know and they
4:48used to hold me down you know and I
4:51would die with squirm and kick scream
4:54and just I didn’t know why they’re doing
4:55that you know me and stop and you know
4:58the biggest problem I had was you know
5:01the doctors would say alright we’re
5:02going to go on three and then they would
5:04count one and go you know and so then I
5:08daughter I didn’t trust doctors and
5:10entrust on it all you know you have I’m
5:12like you lying to me and so the got to a
5:16point where i was a pretty strong little
5:18kid apparently because it would take
5:19like three for him to hold me a place
5:21and yeah you got me and they got where
5:25they got to a point where is wearing
5:26about where they got really couldn’t
5:28they couldn’t do it right what can we do
5:29what can we do to make this better for
5:33you and I told him I said if you just
5:35put a mirror up so I can see when the
5:37pain is coming then I promise you will
5:39have to hold me down anymore because I
5:42always felt like you know they remind me
5:44so i didn’t know when the pain would
5:46come to know you know and they were in
5:47their in their mind they told me well we
5:50don’t want you to tense up because then
5:51it makes things worse or something and
5:53i’m doing right this is excruciating
5:56hey stabbing sort of my back like what
5:58do you want me to do you know like like
6:00how long is this going on from it said
6:02you you from seven to twelve or I mean
6:04how long from work at seven so I was a
6:06little guy you know the little guy going
6:09so you know I just remember when
6:12remember in that moment when they held
6:15that mirror i still remember they held
6:17that mirror
6:18and I took it and they didn’t move they
6:20have to hold me down or nothing like
6:22right then and there I just learned how
6:24to overcome pain I just his movement and
6:29you know as a bodybuilder we put
6:33ourselves through excruciating pain to
6:36make our bodies grow and so that has
6:39become one of my greatest attributes i
6:41think is what allowed me to have a lot
6:43of successes because I can control that
6:45pain you know you really turned it
6:46around you really turned around so sorry
6:49what is your routine life I tell us
6:50about your workout routine right now
6:53it’s pretty bizarre you will believe
6:54that it’s aight i got turned on to low
6:59volume style of training friend of mine
7:03I BB pro wrestling came to stay with me
7:05for his pro debut here at the Tampa Pro
7:07kindergartners camp road here and
7:10content on and he was staying with me
7:14and his style of training was something
7:16similar like Dorian Yates would do where
7:18you know it’s a very low volume so we
7:21would do for your chest workout we would
7:23do like six sets for a chest like that’s
7:26it anything that’s it you going heavy no
7:29yeah and you go as heavy as you can but
7:32the twist is you go as heavy as he can
7:34but you move incredibly slow with your
7:38eccentric movements so you get like a
7:40for second- and then you explode due to
7:44motion and get a four-second negative
7:47it’s so what happens is yes we are doing
7:50a whole lot less volume but we’re
7:53actually increasing the time under
7:54tension by moving so much slower and so
7:57this is crazy Aaron me just and for the
8:00audience just explain what we need by
8:01eccentric would be like okay so you have
8:04the bench press you know you start with
8:06you know you start with taking it off
8:07the rack and the lower it down
8:09that’s what I’m talking about like when
8:10you’re lowering it down you know you
8:12won’t move really slow for like four
8:14seconds there then we hit your chest you
8:16blast it up because the idea is to keep
8:20the muscle under tension the entire time
8:22so it doesn’t rest director set but you
8:25know when you blast the motion you
8:27actually generate more for
8:29which will tear more muscle and so you
8:31know there’s a couple there’s two ways
8:33in my in my mind that build muscle i was
8:35just talking to rich beyond the other
8:37day he’s he’s training my gym down shots
8:40of videos with him
8:41you guys have to get ready for that I
8:42guess the videos coming out he said
8:45probably the next couple weeks and the
8:46them as you know whatever and I’ve
8:48watched him he’s got the the show where
8:50he you know you follow him on a daily
8:52basis any gains like 40 pounds of muscle
8:54in four months or something I’ve been
8:56watching somebody is a monster mean he
8:58is just tremendous
9:00she is definitely a monster like the
9:04dude is impressive and personally I
9:07think he’s more impressive in person
9:08because I thought he was much shorter
9:12than he was but he’s like 6p tambien
9:14so like I rd i thought it was about 510
9:17or something for me I think he’s like 60
9:20talk as I got me that I feel like he’s
9:22just so thick and so big it looks
9:25shorter he’s not the one is really
9:28impressive but we were talking the other
9:30day and he you know we talked about
9:34growing muscle there’s two ways
9:36number one you know high-volume chasing
9:39the pump get really pump stretching
9:41muscle fibers you know they need some
9:43tearing their and thereby rebuilds and
9:46then the other way is incredibly high
9:47amounts away with a lot of force that
9:49will tear muscle fibers right that’s the
9:52two ways and so with this little wine
9:54training man i’m in the gym like not
9:57counting calves and abs in any type of
9:59warm up that I’m doing for like you know
10:01whether it’s tara mill or something like
10:03that
10:03I’m really only hit the weights for
10:04about 40 minutes maybe 45 you’re telling
10:08me as a professional bodybuilder that’s
10:10all you’re putting in terms of
10:11weightlifting yeah man and that’s what
10:14I’m saying that you’re not going to
10:16believe it it’s crazy like it doesn’t
10:18seem like it’s gonna work but it works
10:20like I can’t explain it’s almost like
10:23okay Nikki no and here’s how it goes so
10:26it’s like I’ve been trying to figure i
10:28know people keep asking me to explain to
10:30him all the time and the best way I can
10:32explain it to is with a high-volume
10:35workout let’s say you’re high volume
10:37workout let’s refer this to like digging
10:39a hole with your high volume workout
10:41comes with being depleted your basic
10:43digging like a 6-foot hole
10:44okay okay when you’re done you eat and
10:47when you eat the idea is to fill it back
10:49up with sand and then some so you can
10:51grow well I feel like with a high-volume
10:52work out your meals are kind of set and
10:54so you take this six-foot hole and eat
10:56your meals you put my four feet of sand
10:58back in so yeah you might get a little
11:01bit of a hard mean little bit of growth
11:03maybe a little bit of shape but you’re
11:05not making an exponential amount of
11:07growth with low volume training kind of
11:10digging like a two-foot hole you’re
11:12taking that same for the sandwiches your
11:14meals and put it back into making to
11:16fill your progress so you’re actually I
11:18got you so you’re really doing a lot a
11:20lot more growth so I just with rich
11:22piana like he one of the things just
11:24that I sort of learned from watching his
11:27videos and stuff was just that the
11:30amount of food that he consumes on a
11:31daily basis is beyond belief and he
11:35talks about for bodybuilders which I
11:37didn’t know that if you really want to
11:38grow huge part of that is nutrition how
11:42much of that like like tell us about
11:44your nutrition and how does that work
11:45for you
11:46well you know it was awesome because
11:48when when we were talking with them you
11:50know when I was filming is kind of like
11:51the day and I was filming my good a day
11:53in the life with rich piana you know is
11:56I’m sponsored by you know API and they
11:59just sent me two chili and you know
12:02they’re starting to send me all over the
12:03world now to view some you know
12:05disposing appearances it sounds
12:07fantastic i’m so excited very joining
12:09cool yeah you know so you know so he
12:12knows that and i think it one time maybe
12:14he was thinking maybe I could use this
12:15guy for you know some promotions well I
12:17go on but when he found out you know I
12:19told Marty sponsor whatever he thought
12:20well you know we can still do some
12:22filming will do a day in the life you
12:23can do whatever you want you know if
12:25your you know your your sponsor and you
12:28know so we’re talking and he’s just real
12:30big on food and I like that I like that
12:33because he’s a guy with a supplement
12:35company that promotes food
12:37ok right and that’s what you need to do
12:41because like we were talking and he was
12:43like okay like what
12:44how’s your meal plan do you got your own
12:45nail prep companies don’t like how does
12:47it go
12:48I said well I do you want i do five
12:51miles in two shakes a day we have looked
12:53at me and I said and I said well in my
12:56shake in the morning is you know oatmeal
12:58fruit egg whites spinach you know and I
13:01usually feel like a little bit of
13:03protein powder in there for you know
13:04flavors amino acids he’s like okay good
13:07i was about to give you a hard time he’s
13:08like I was about to give you a hard time
13:10and be like what the hell do you know is
13:14that was cool you know because i’m
13:16sitting here thinking like you know
13:17because I know he’s all about food but
13:18man that’s the best like he’s this
13:20freaking nature he’s telling you gotta
13:22eat food which you do man as a
13:24bodybuilder you have to eat food like I
13:27can see here you know in supplement
13:30companies wanted want you to say that
13:32oh yeah I would never be this without my
13:33supplements ok you like food first
13:37supplement second yes supplements help
13:39but your food has to be first cause if
13:41you eaten any food they know something
13:43that’s going to save you
13:44I mean right you can take any drugs in
13:46the world if you don’t eat gonna happen
13:48it’s like this it’s like you can try to
13:50build a house and have all the workers
13:51ready to go to work but if there’s no
13:53lumber and nails in the walls going up
13:55you know I do i do so what so how many
13:59meals a day daily you say you do five
14:01meals a day five meals in two shakes but
14:03the shakes are like girls
14:05well what’s a me like me it would be out
14:07like what would you have for dinner
14:09I’m well i mean i do meals like one
14:11through seven so dinner would be like
14:14around five or 6i guess maybe five or
14:16six you know at that time Mr i’m usually
14:21coming away from my cars like that my
14:23carbs around my work out if I’m bulking
14:25they don’t have two more carbons in the
14:27day and one fat meal so i might have
14:30see it was a three-car meals into fat
14:35meals it’s usually have that goes you
14:36know but if I’ve if i’m doing like my
14:38fit program they not only have three
14:42postcards and one other carb meal if i’m
14:44doing my shred program which I do you
14:46want to get ready to compete is what i
14:47just did what I want the south
14:49I just do postcards and I knew fats with
14:52my heels every meal after that and so
14:56when I say that so it’s like this so if
14:57I’m saying like a fat me or caramel
14:59blended caramel I like to keep these
15:01consistent what I’m trying to reach a
15:02goal if I made my offseason I can rotate
15:05my foods a little bit but if I’m
15:07competing I’m not rotating my foods
15:09I’m stakin to if rice works for me
15:12jasmine rice then that’s the carbon we
15:13go to every time eating my carbs using
15:16going to basically i’ll do like 10
15:18ounces of chicken I’ll do around a cup
15:22and a half of rye sometimes 24 in my
15:26carbs and then I like to do want two
15:28cups of vegetable i love broccoli so
15:30that’s like one meal for me okay you
15:34know if I’m doing my fat like 10 ounces
15:37of chicken or 10 ounces of ground turkey
15:39and then all due to four ounces of
15:42either peanuts or cashews or something
15:44and then I’ll do again like 12 2 cups of
15:47broccoli or another green leafy
15:50vegetable you know
15:53wow you know in it and it’s basically a
15:56man I mean think in the morning you know
15:57I have my shakes as my old no my fruit
16:00and all that i like to go i like to work
16:02out in the morning I’m competed working
16:05out in the evenings before when I was in
16:07medical sales competed when I was
16:10personal training and I was busy in the
16:12morning busy and I so I was working out
16:14at like 2pm it wasn’t busy you know
16:16right
16:17but I find that I am at my best in the
16:20morning when I wake up to you
16:22I’m i do the same thing let me see what
16:25i watch sexy piana he was also talking
16:27about which was interesting to me like
16:29you have to put cardio in there so if
16:31you’re if you’re eating a lot and you’re
16:33lifting you’ll get the bulk but if
16:35you’re not doing the car do you start to
16:37become fat when you feel about that or
16:40how much cargo we gonna talk about that
16:42he was like you know what man he’s like
16:44I think you got like the best body type
16:45he’s like I know you complain about you
16:47know hard to put size on at times and in
16:50you know it’s easy to be lead stuff he’s
16:53like but he’s like I like to eat and he
16:55was like you you get you whatever you
16:56want right I said well yes and no like I
16:59eat a lot you know and i can do what i
17:02want but i prefer to eat when I’m
17:03supposed to because i have better energy
17:04that way i don’t like to just crap all
17:06day you know but I’m he’s right i stay
17:09cleaner than most people year-round you
17:11know easily is very easy so i don’t
17:15really do cardio I i warm up every day
17:18this is a typical listeners out there
17:21you should try this okay this was a game
17:23changer for me and I was talking with
17:25the girl the day she was like you
17:27shouldn’t tell anybody that because i
17:28know that’s an easy tip that obviously
17:30has made a big difference and I said it
17:33really doesn’t matter i give tons of
17:35good information everybody all the time
17:36people don’t listen to me anyway so so
17:41you know what I what I what I do is my
17:44new 10 minutes of stair mill before I
17:47work out every day and to be honest with
17:50you the first five or six minutes
17:52I don’t really feel anything I start
17:53sweating a little bit about 6-7 minutes
17:57and then I try to be done in eight
18:00minutes or 10 depending on how much time
18:03I have
18:03but uh I stay on my toes and flex my
18:06quads every step of the way and since
18:09i’ve been doing that Mike my legs are
18:13incredibly vascular I have more veins on
18:16my legs that most people do in their
18:18entire body and you know I it was never
18:21that way I was never that way
18:24brother I’m telling you like the judges
18:26told me last year in 2015 we’d like to
18:28see your legs get harder for you come
18:30back out on stage again I said okay and
18:32so instinctively I was like well I’ll
18:33just do a little bit sterile everyday
18:35flexing my quality of that helps peel
18:37bro has been peeled ever since time you
18:41like
18:41road maps of days if you look at my
18:43Instagram and see what’s going on my
18:45legs like that’s why that’s what i owe
18:47it to wow I didn’t like and you you do
18:49it looks unbelievable
18:51in fact I saw you I saw pictures of you
18:53at 25 when you were 305 pounds and then
18:56I saw a picture of you about four years
18:57later when you’re down about 265 and I
19:01mean what a difference what how did you
19:02do that what was those what did you do
19:04in those four years that changed your
19:06physique so dramatically well with when
19:09I got the weight on me when I was 25 I
19:11just wanted to get it on me I mean I was

20:00Oh like it was just you know I’m lucky
20:06always as lean as I was row
20:08I mean I’m lucky I was that way when I
20:10was 25 just because genetically I guess
20:12I stay a little later but uh you know
20:14when i came into florida and i studied
20:18nutrition and I got release wrestling
20:21little dreams were shattered and really
20:24focused on nutrition I started just
20:26eating to the point and then it just
20:28became really easy to be shredded and so
20:31yeah I started hovering around 255
20:34you know our super league because i was
20:37eating right now that’s really what
20:39doesn’t and and how did you start your
20:40nutrition company like tell us about
20:42that like what made you go in that
20:43direction my meal prep business prop me
20:46up
20:46ok so you know I was in medical sales
20:51for three years in you know my boss
20:53Brian Brian artsy cool guy he always
20:57felt like he knew i was really go on to
21:00other things you know and you know we
21:02formed a pretty good friendship while we
21:03work together and stuff and you know
21:06eventually i left that his business i
21:09wanted to technology and I hated it got
21:11horrible technology cells because now
21:15I’m not the most enough to go to go to
21:17for your technologyadvice 21
21:19ok no no honey I will not ask any
21:22questions about don’t go yeah and i’ll
21:24try to answer but I think it’ll help it
21:26too much
21:27they’re not so you know I went into that
21:30and you fail miserably and then so I in
21:35January 1 2015 i was hungry and
21:37entrepreneur you know online coaching to
21:40become more of a popular thing so i was
21:42able to do that makes the income and
21:44then I still personal training and that
21:48all went pretty good too i started
21:49competing and then I focus so much on my
21:51competing I can’t let my other
21:52businesses fall because you know as an
21:54entrepreneur if you don’t grind with you
21:56you know you don’t need so I got to a
22:00point where i would just broke and i did
22:02so i went flat broke i had like twelve
22:05fourteen thousand dollars saved up
22:06begins a year then you know around
22:09September i had already been struggling
22:12for a few months and I just needed to
22:16make some money
22:18how’s Hank how to pay rent and it’s
22:21never it’s never the case and so I
22:23called up you know well boss I said hey
22:26I’ll prep your meals for my things two
22:28hundred bucks i called the guys over 200
22:30bucks and the most explicit yeah so I
22:33made for her box like brown spot and so
22:35yeah exactly and I thought okay and I
22:39did in my kitchen I went good the next
22:42week i sold more meals to more people
22:44and I thought oh my god i can’t don’t
22:47room in my little kitchen over here and
22:49then so the third week i got more people
22:51and I moved into a friend of mine she
22:53let me use her kitchen and I thought
22:55this is not gonna work and so I looked
22:58you know online see if i could write a
23:00commercial kitchen space and commercial
23:02kitchen that worked out so four weeks
23:04into it i’m in a commercial kitchen and
23:06then right away I staff to couple people
23:07to help me and you it just start making
23:10money that is often running an errand
23:13that still fast like when I got a month
23:15I mean most people struggle for years to
23:17internet yeah well I’ll be honest with
23:19you know he hasn’t been a bit of roses
23:22the whole way you know it’s been a
23:24struggle but he got off the ground quick
23:27it really did and you know the funny
23:31thing is i started with four meals
23:33formulas come over there with the
23:36formulas
23:37ok so i had a tuna salad that I was
23:41dealing I have a chicken and rice meal
23:44and then I had a ground turkey meal
23:47yeah the no.10 I had my christian post
23:52workout manager is my tuna in in rice
23:55which it’s not the most appetizing meal
23:57but it’s what you need a post workout
23:59with my plan like this stuff you’re
24:01actually eat your you’re living this and
24:03this is the stuff you’re actually eating
24:04to get ya the same is the same for meals
24:07every day so it’s like this I eat five
24:09meals a day in two shakes right so I’m
24:10making shakes at home you know and i’m
24:13getting these five meals so you know for
24:15the meals were different I mean one of
24:16them twice the way about my plan worked
24:18you know right and so that’s all I sold
24:21that is all I did it so everyone’s ideas
24:23great we started doing between like 350
24:27and 500 meals a week you know these for
24:30musicals and yeah and then i get
24:34everyone on board that everyone always
24:36almost all at one time everybody was
24:39like I’m tired of the meals you know any
24:42and then so that’s when you know that’s
24:45Wendy I had my first like real speed Bob
24:47and so then I had to come up with all
24:48these other meals so now i’m proud to
24:50say we have like 15 different menu items
24:53which is pretty cool
24:55well how i would like to ship it asset
24:57like how would we
24:58if I wanted to learn how would I
25:00anyone can be in the tampa area i can’t
25:02really ship of state haven’t found
25:03anything that’s cost-effective at this
25:04point but what we deliver everything so
25:07we we do the shopping on friday or
25:09saturday you know sometimes
25:11half-and-half different stuff it didn’t
25:13know we prepare everything cook it on
25:16Sunday package it and then I send it out
25:18of my delivery so on an entrepreneur
25:21Aaron you really done that’s phenomenal
25:23that’s very well done sir thanks means
25:26we’re going to me it’s just it’s you
25:28know you know i read a book called rich
25:30dad poor dad here that book
25:32robert kiyosaki love that book yeah it’s
25:35awesome did not he has another book
25:37called the cashflow quadrant the second
25:38one to read that i read that too yes sir
25:40ok good right on ok so in that but you
25:43know it talks about how there’s four
25:45areas to the cashflow quadrant you know
25:47there’s the there’s the employee then
25:50there’s the self-employed and then if
25:52you cross over to the other side there
25:54is business owner and investor yep and i
25:59remember when i read the book I was like
26:01I want to be a business owner investor
26:03that’s what i want and it was the first
26:06time that I really thought about it that
26:07way better than that by read that book
26:08probably 10 years ago as a great book i
26:14actually bought the game for my daughter
26:16is eight years old as they can’t really
26:18cashflow quadrant game for kids me my
26:19daughter inflated about 30 times so they
26:22might hurt you when i when i was reading
26:26the book I thought that’s brilliant have
26:28a game that it’s a great it’s a great
26:31game I tell you for you for kids it
26:33really starts to put them in that
26:34entrepreneurial spirit you know what
26:36their parents let me ask so a lot of our
26:39listeners write some of them are are
26:41getting our little bit older you know
26:43him and when they look at that body
26:44building might not be reality to them
26:47right or maybe they’re in their fifties
26:49or sixties and stuff like that but from
26:51my viewpoint you know one of the things
26:53that we see as people get older they
26:54start to atrophy they start to lose that
26:56musculature how do you see yourself
26:59aging how do you see like bodybuilding
27:01as part of that and
27:02and how do you know we’re looking for in
27:04the show sort of the holy grail of
27:07health and how do you think bodybuilding
27:09would sort of fit into that fits in
27:14perfectly okay so here’s what you gotta
27:17understand we all know that as the body
27:20agency goes to changes you know at some
27:23point people need to throw out the taboo
27:26idea or thought that hormones are all
27:29bad that might you know hear the term
27:31steroid or something and you think like
27:34oh my god I’m gonna rage or whatever you
27:38know I’m gonna die from it you know like
27:40people it’s crazy like people need to
27:43understand that if your body produces
27:45the time of testosterone and growth
27:48hormone and things like that in your you
27:51know early twenties and you think you’re
27:53gonna be the same person that your
27:55forties or fifties you’re crazy you’re
27:57crazy
27:58so you know i would suggest the first
28:01thing these people should do is number
28:02one change their eating habits
28:05ok because you can start to lose weight
28:07just changing your eating habits your
28:09forties or fifties you should be health
28:11conscious anyway where this is gonna
28:13lead to all other kind of problems but
28:15beyond that if you want to have the body
28:18that you want within you know no medical
28:21reason and hell man like go see like
28:25these these uh HRT clinics as hormone
28:29replacement therapies go see a doctor
28:31get your levels check find out where
28:33your testosterone is what you estrogens
28:35doing you know and if it’s low have them
28:38replaced that shit yeah i mean like I’m
28:41gonna tell you right now I’m gonna be 50
28:43years old going man had a hard-on you
28:45know two weeks and I can I don’t like
28:48that i’ll get a pump in the gym when I
28:50know I can go somewhere and get that
28:51fixed like why would I do that you know
28:54right Hank
28:55oh so that’s what I would say to these
28:58older listeners that are listening Mike
29:00their stuff out there to help you that
29:02is medically guided okay that means the
29:05doctor is going to do blood work and
29:07show you this is the healthy range
29:09of where you should be and this is where
29:11you are unfortunately we want to get you
29:13here it’ll change your life man you know
29:15you know it will change everything
29:17i mean her little man just I’ve heard
29:18things were like if you start to work as
29:20an example like your legs right you’re
29:22doing your quads tough because the
29:24muscles are so large you actually
29:26release so much hormones just from doing
29:28that is that possible that you can
29:30actually from work in the lower limbs
29:32and working the quads actually build up
29:33those hormones even more like just
29:36forgetting taking supplements can you do
29:38that just to exercise i would like to
29:41believe
29:42yes because the body will you know
29:45acclimate whatever you do it whatever
29:47you’re kidding me dude with the body’s
29:49going to find homeostasis so i’ll be if
29:51you’re you’re squatting all the time you
29:53know your body’s gonna be like oh my god
29:55like we gotta grow these legs so we can
29:57handle all this weight this guy’s put me
29:59through every day you know what you
30:01gotta know is that it as you get older
30:03you got less of that hormone available
30:06so you know for the you know the rare
30:10individual things can bounce right back
30:13you can view you could potentially be a
30:15high testosterone and just be lucky in
30:18to work and everything is cool but for
30:20most people especially people that have
30:22been out of shape for a long time you
30:24know they don’t athletics that don’t
30:28have athletes and athletic the body’s
30:30not used to be in a high performance
30:32level so when the train like it’s very
30:35different feel they need some help you
30:37know so you can train hard and you can
30:40you can eat well and you can look great
30:43but it’s not going to be easy and i’m
30:47not even say it’s going to be easier if
30:48you got with all the doctor whatever
30:50it’s still going to be tough but like
30:51you know yes you can train your legs
30:54hard and that will stimulate probably
30:56more for your health anything like I
30:58always tell people like if you want to
31:00feel good you feel good every day you
31:02don’t wake up and sweat for 15 or 20
31:05minutes every morning that’s all it
31:06takes 15 to 20 minutes and see how you
31:09feel rested a while
