Interview with a bro episode 2
Q: How did you discover this twitter subculture?
A: Honestly I don’t remember. I was active on Instagram mostly. Then I wanted to see what Twitter was all about. Started following a bunch of lifting pages and men whose principals I agreed with.
Q: What you wish you knew sooner when it comes to training and nutrition ?
A: How important nutrition is to almost any training goal. Whether your goal is performance, aesthetics, or longevity nutrition is the backbone of getting the results you want.
Q: What you wish you knew sooner when it comes to life?
A: Two things.
1) That no one is really paying attention to what you are doing, especially the details of your life.
2) 99% of people are motivated by what they believe are good intentions.
Q: Favorite Meal ?
A: Any Brazilian steakhouse. My current go-to location is 12 Cuts in Dallas, Texas.
Q: Favorite Training Split ?
A: 100% depends on my goal.
Q: Favorite Training Tip ?
A: Prioritize your recovery as much as you prioritize your training. You can only train as hard as you can recover.
Q: A Challenge you faced and shaped my perspective.
A: Going through the police academy taught me that my body is capable of whatever my mind is willing to let it suffer through.
Q: Favorite Book ?
A: The Holy Bible
Q: Favorite Strength Training Tip ?
A: Ride linear progression as long as you can before switching to a more “advanced” training program.
Q: Overhead Squat Tip ?
A: Figure out where your mobility restrictions are. Whether its tight ankles or hips affecting your lower body mobility or tight pecs or lats affecting your overhead mobility. Most guys are strong enough to do overhead squats, but having the mobility and stabilization in order to do them effectively takes work.
Q: Why do you think gym bros seem to be the only sane people left?
A: Its 2022 and society puts a premium on 2 major things. 1) Being comfortable and 2) Making things easier or more efficient. Chasing both of these things is causing a population to be physcially/mentally weak and to not have patience and consistency (always seeking instant gratification). Gym bros understand that it takes years of consistency in order to achieve your goals. Gym bros also understand that there is no growth without getting uncomfortable.
Thanks for the interview bro.
