When I was a student, I loved breaks.
A time to sleep in, relax, and enjoy a few days away from the reality of school.
Now that I’m a teacher, I love breaks even more.
For all of the previous reasons and then some.
The time from the start of the school year until Thanksgiving Break is a grind.
No off-days, open houses, parent-teacher conferences, the start of the year, etc.
Looking forward to spending some time resting and reflecting.
And crushing some turkey!
We all have a lot to be thankful for. 🙂
Reading Gainz By Jason
This week’s article on Anyman Fitness was on a topic which frustrates any good fitness coach.
Those articles which talk about the “Habits Of The Naturally Lean” are hogwash.
When you try to follow their advice, you’ll spin your wheels and burn out.
We make sure all of our online training clients know the secret to good results – know your strengths and use them to your advantage.
If you’re not “naturally lean”, don’t try to fit the square peg into the round hole.

Client Gainz Of The Week
Today’s Client Gainz come from online client Bo.
Bo finished up an initial 3-month consultation with us.
His primary goal was fat loss with muscular retention.
In his time with us, he lost an amazing 20 pounds and almost 6 full inches off of his waist!
Here is his IMPRESSIVE before and after picture:
Outstanding job, Bo!
Bo ended up deadlifting 405 pounds during his last week on the cut, which was a PR!

Thought Gainz Of The Week
Today’s Thought Gainz come from client Joe.
Joe sent us a question about one of our “macro tricks” we use with clients. The trick he was wondering about is called the “3 for 1”.
Using the “3 for 1”, we take a food which is mostly one macro and call it “all” one macro.
For example, take cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is mostly protein with a few fat and carb grams.
For counting’s sake, we will call it “all” protein by taking the calories and dividing them by 4 (since there are 4 calories per gram of protein).
The strategy is given to clients and it is described more fully in this post.
Joe was wondering how we could do this.
If we are off with our macros, won’t that affect progress?
Should we just ignore the label?
How does this work?
An excellent question – and here is my response:
