Tyler, what do you suggest to take to keep "regular"? I get roughly 30grams of fiber a day, but for some reason my stool (for lack of a better word) hasn't been getting along with me. Perhaps digestive enzymes or just a laxative? Thanks man

Tyler - I've had the same trouble in the past when I go very low carb.  Try out dieters tea that helped me out a lot.  If that does't work for you try using some metamusil every day.

How long are your cardio sessions and how many times do you do it a week?
24 September 2012

Tyler - 5 days a week for 30 minutes.  I either do the incline treadmill walk, stair climber, or stairs out side. Yesterday I ran outside so I might start doing that a couple times a week

Hi Tyler, when i work out my chest i find that i feel my front deltoids working more than my chest. I have tried pre-exhausting my chest with dumbbell flys and then move onto heavier pressing exercises but i still feel the same. Is this due to poor technique or is it normal as the deltoids are a smaller muscle?
23 September 2012

Tyler - It's most likely due to trying to use too much weight.  Drop the weights down and really focus on just the the chest.  Once you get a strong mind muscle connection you will start to be able to use heavier weight without feeling it in the majority of your delts.

know you hve moved on, great progress on yoru side, been inspiration for me in getting at the work, more than exercise but really work... like life is all in the same mind set thank you man really

Seated DB Lateral Raise/Fly

DBLATERALRAISEFLY 300x120 Seated DB Lateral Raise/Fly

DB Lateral Raise/Fly

Here is another unique exercise you will find in TMT-PHASE ONE!  It targets all three heads of the deltoids.  This exercise does not take much weight at all in fact when I use this on some of my clients they have to just use no weight.  Sequence this exercise towards the end of your workout it's a great finisher to really get that burn and maximize blood in the delts!

1. Start with the DB's in normal starting position of a lateral raise
2.Raise them like a normal lateral raise leading with your elbows not wrists
3.Bring the DB's in front of your face
4.Front Raise the DB's over your head
5.Bring the DB's back down to position 3
6.Then back to position 2
7.Finally back to starting position that is 1 complete rep


Lots of filming…

This weekend has been a busy one with a lot of filming.  Friday I filmed my shoulder workout that will be for my youtube channel and my shoulders are still sore today!  It was a great workout that targets all heads of the deltoids so you will have to check it out in a couple of days when I upload it.  The workout pays a little more attention to the side delt which will give your overall shoulder a rounder look along with width.  Saturday I filmed some stuff here at the house for my members section and this afternoon will be the gym stuff for my members.  It's looking like it will be launching in about 3 weeks if all things go as planned.  I'm revamping my whole site and I'm very excited to see how it looks.  Brian my webmaster and his team have been working on it.


I've already knocked out my 45 minutes of cardio this morning and I'm going to relax and watch the Knicks game here shortly and then the Heat play a little later before I go to film.  Later on tonight is my favorite night for TV.  Californication has been one of my favorite shows since season 1 but this season hasn't been that great so far.  I also just started watching the new HBO series Luck about the horse racing business.  Very complex story and intriguing
