Hey teamRIPPED!  How is everyone doing this week?  Each week we bring it, we make progress… don’t throw it away on the weekend! This reminded me of a message from an old teamRIPPEDer James. He came clean about “silent cheating.” The Silent Cheat! By James P.,...

Workout Intensity

How hard should you work out? Should you take breaks? Keep a steady pace?  This is a question we should all ask ourselves as we take on programs and workouts that may be beyond our current level of fitness. Your workouts should be intense but controlled and safe. Plain in simple, you...

Cheat meals. Cheat days. How do these impact your results? Should you use them? Do they help at all? All good questions, and while not a direct YES or NO, there are clear answers. Cheat Meals and Cheat Days Let’s start off by defining what a “cheat meal” is. I define...
