Mark the Conqueror!

Mark says he used to be chubby but strong.  Looking at his day 1′s you’d never know the “strong” part LOL!  He worked out some, but had no dedication to proper nutrition and was steadily getting further and further out of shape.  He made up his mind to CONQUER...

Midweek Motivation

No one should ever lie to you. This is HARD WORK! But it’s worth it. Each workout, each planned meal, each extra rep, each time you go a little heavier…. it’s so worth it. You are worth it.   ×Related Posts:No Related...

Big Boy Weights for Bod...

Body Beast is still the go-to program for muscle. That is what it was designed for and what it delivers. You can do a lot with it too, as long as you still control your nutrition precisely. You can get a really lean bulk, go all out bulking, and even cut. All with lifting heavy weights....

Mike the IRONMAN!

This transformation is from “the vault” — Mike was one of the early members of teamRIPPED.  Mike’s health was spiraling out of control. He was fat and out of shape. But he was ready to do something about it. He was ready to MAKE WAR! And when you watch this video,...

Making Changes, Changes...

People are inherently resistant to change.  With change comes fear of the unknown.  This is something we need to remember when going through a transformation of our health and fitness, especially if our spouse / significant other is not doing it with us!  It can be a serious cause of...

Taking the Beachbody Ch...

Lance – Team Dete...

I first met Lance when he started P90X nearly 4 years ago.  He joined my team, gave 100% effort, plugged in for accountability, and got amazing Hall of Fame results. But the story doesn’t end there.  He kept pushing himself, wanting to prove that the old Lance was history and that...

The Asylum Vol 1: Worth...

Measuring Weight Loss P...

Measuring weight loss progress can be tough at times. And actually this title may be misleading. Most people think weight loss progress is only the number on the scale. If the number you read on the dial between your feet each morning is going down, you’re a success. If that needle...

Pio’s Rockin̵...

Pio was out of shape and lazy, “enjoying” life a little too much. He made a change, a BIG change! And so did his wife Karla! Pio traded in his keg for a 6 pack! Literally! Check them both out in this video: Pio’s story in his own words: I am Pio Yepez, I was born in...

Midweek Motivation

A great place for some fitness motivation is always Instagram! It’s loaded with people pushing hard and fighting for their goals. I thought it would be cool to search the tag #teamRIPPED and see what comes up. It was great! So I grabbing some that I knew were really for us (the real...

Unrealistic Results

I often have people comment that my results aren’t typical.  Most are impressed and say something along the lines of “great job”, “inspiring”, “I’m going to dust off my set of DVD’s and push play”, etc. Others are annoying jerks say something like “you must have done...

Training Too Much: Are ...

Are you “Overtraining”??  How do you know?  What are some guidelines to follow? First, let me just say that there are 2 common situations I run into with “overtraining” – 1)  The person who is new to the workouts (within the first couple weeks) and asks me...

Todd was one of the early members of the teamRIPPED nation, back in 2010.  He went all-in, and got some awesome results.  He’s since gone on to become an amazingly successful coach of his own team (Ripped Club).  I find it fitting, since teamRIPPED is going head to head with...

Common Nutrition Tracki...

I get a lot of questions about nutrition tracking! And that is a good thing. You want to be accurate and precise when you track your nutrition. Having accurate nutrition tracking is the only way to really know what you are eating and how that is effecting your results. You are controlling...

I CAN’T STAND Excuses!...

I’ve discussed my disdain for excuses before, but guess what — I still hear them all the time!  I even posted this before… but I just need to visit it again. Apparently not everyone has looked in the archives at my old articles or they wouldn’t DARE to give me...
