If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I’m the biggest fan of compound, complex, full body exercises, which is why I created the RIP then ROCK Workout Series . All of the workouts are focused on unique exercises that target the entire body, challenging it in a way whereby the body experiences new movements.
Specifically, all the workouts focus on 3 things that make fat-burning exercise, well, FAT-BURNING:
I’m 38! 2 years shy of … dun dun dun… 40! I’ve basically reached the midway point of life expectancy, they say. But I’ve never felt younger.
What do we do if you say things like: “I am too old to workout like that”. “I can’t workout like that, my body can’t move like that”??

Think about every single diet out there - Keto, Atkin, South Beach… they have this ONE thing in common - caloric deficit.
Diets for weight loss suck. They suck a lot.. But we do them anyway, right?
We eat “bad”, we gain a little, we feel guilty, we diet, we fall off track, we eat again, we gain more, we get upset, we diet harder this time, we cleanse, we binge more, we regret more, we eat more… It’s a tough cycle to end.
