Over the last 11 years, I’ve been on all sides of the health and fitness game.
I was the newbie without a clue, following magazine workouts and buying hundreds of dollars of worthless supplements every month.
I was the guy stuck in a rut, just going through the motions every week. Not getting any bigger, leaner, or stronger, regardless of what I did.
I had no clue how to eat to lose or gain weight, and believed all kinds of broscience myths that made dieting complicated and frustrating.
Although I’ve done a lot wrong, I’ve been lucky enough to to learn from my failures, and discover what actually works. I then used that knowledge to build the body I had always wanted–the reason I stepped foot in a gym in the first place. And fortunately, it turned out to be much simpler and more enjoyable than I ever would’ve believed in the beginning.
I share everything I know in my books, but I want to take it further and relate my knowledge and experience directly to your circumstances so that it helps you succeed in achieving your health and fitness goals.
The way I am going to do this is through a simple question and answer format. All you have to do is leave a comment with a question and I will answer it, either here or in my podcast. Whether it is a question about a problem you are having in your diet or training or just something you want to know about me, feel free to ask me anything.
I’m Mike Matthews and I’ve been training for nearly a decade now. I believe that every person can achieve the body of his or her dreams, and I work hard to give everyone that chance by providing workable, proven advice grounded in science, not a desire to sell phony magazines, workout products, or supplements.
