Aug 21, 2017

If you’re new to trying to get in shape, the ocean of options available to you can be daunting. There are hundreds of different implements, machines, protocols, and programs, all claiming to be the best way for you to achieve your goals.

But BJ Gaddour is here to tell you that you don’t need all that noise. BJ is the author of Your Body Is Your Barbell, and has recently launched his own site to bring his approach to the masses. Though he grew up as a fat kid, he made it all the way to the cover of Men’s Health, so he knows firsthand what it’s like to struggle with food. In fact, he admits that it’s still a struggle, but he’s found a structure that helps him stay on track.

BJ and Shane Trotter discuss his background, and why he believes we need to form our fitness philosophy from a wide variety of information. BJ details how the right exercise selection can take care of most of your fitness problems, why metabolic conditioning is the most effective tool for most people’s fitness goals, and why it’s important for fitness professionals to work from a mindset of abundance, rather than scarcity.
