Episode 048: Why Success Should Not Be Based on Fat Loss featuring Alex Tanskey

Is fat loss the marker by which you measure success in the gym? If so, Alex and Jon go over why that needs to change and what else you can focus on instead.

  • “The Leaky Ceiling” analogy for using exercise for weight loss
  • Strength has a greater purpose
  • Leg & grip strength in relation to life expectancy
  • Looking at other strategies apart from fat or weight loss
  • Build the right habits
  • Why you shouldn’t follow instagram celebrity workouts
  • The difference between working out and training
  • Are you getting better or just sweating a lot?
  • Why we need to view exercise as a way to increase our life expectancy
  • Structuring your conditioning days
