As of right now, I’ve produced over 500 episodes of Muscle for Life, totaling over 700 hours of content.
I’ve talked about a huge variety of things related to health, fitness, and lifestyle, ranging from the basics of diet and exercise like energy and macronutrient balance and progressive overload and training frequency and volume to fads like the ketogenic and carnivore diet and collagen protein to more unfamiliar territories like body weight set point and fasted cardio.
Some episodes resonate with my crowd more than others, but all of them contain at least a few key takeaways that just about anyone can benefit from (that’s what I tell myself at least).
And as cool as that is, it poses a problem for you, my dear listener:
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Well okay, some people do make the time to listen to most or even all of my podcasts, but my wizbang analytics tell me that while many listeners tune in on a regular basis, they don’t catch every installment of Muscle for Life and thus miss out on insights that could help them get a little better inside and outside the gym.
People have also been saying they’d like me to do more shorter, multi-topic episodes, like my Q&As.
And so I got an idea: how about a “best of” series of podcasts that contains a few of the most practical and compelling ideas, tips, and moments from my most popular episodes?
This way, people who are new to the show can quickly determine if it’s for them or not, and those who enjoy what I’m doing but don’t have the time or inclination to listen to all of my stuff can still benefit from the discussions and find new episodes to listen to.
So, in this inaugural episode of The Best of Muscle for Life, you’ll be hearing hand-picked morsels from three episodes:
- Lyle McDonald on How Women Can Improve Fat Loss
- How to Safely and Healthily Lose Weight Fast
- The Science of Supercharging Your Willpower and Self-Discipline
And we’ll be starting with number one, fat loss tips for women from Lyle McDonald.
Lastly, if you want to support the show, please drop a quick review of it over on iTunes. It really helps!
