    Great Podcast Mike! I’m always learning something new. I’ve got your book (Bigger, Leaner, Stronger) for about 10 months now and it has been helping me alot in my workouts and nutrition! Lately I’ve enjoyed the last part of your podcasts, when you talk about things not fitness-related. I’ve been struggling the last couple of months with my carrer and all those messages, insights, attitudes from various places and people really helped me not to give up. Not only I’ve used this in all my workout, but in my life in general. So, please, keep it up with this amazing work that you’ve been doing!!! Can’t wait for your next podcast and the new book! ºººo/ººº

    I think the sound is a litlle low in the mp3 version of this episode, I can barely hear it in the traffic. However, the content was very nice! but it seems that you told what has been already told in the whole site. As a hardcore reader of muscleforlife, almost all that I found in the podcast I already have read here. Maybe could be a good idea to create exclusive content for the podcast/videocast.

    • Michael Matthews

      Sorry about that Denis I’m not sure what happened. I’ll check the mic levels next time.

      I’m glad you liked it! Yeah I will be doing the podcasts biweekly so I can mix up the content and such.

    Hey Mike,

    Really enjoyed the podcast look forward to hearing more. I have a health podcasts that I listen to and they claimed almost all synthetic vitamins are
    made by the same company Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd so it doesn’t
    matter what brand you buy they are all made out of synthetic chemical
    powders from China just using the ratio specified by the “vitamin”
    company and put in a bottle with their private label on it. Glad you are
    recommending a vitamin from an all natural source. What is your take on
    tocopheral oils? The health show I listen to says tocopheral oils are
    not good for you.

    To quote the health show “Vitamins are a biological system not a chemical”

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks Greg! I really appreciate it.

      Yeah I’ve heard a lot of wild claims against synthetics but when I look at the research and speak to doctors I actually respect, they tell a different story.

      Some synthetics have been proven to be 100% safe and effective, but some should be avoided (certain forms of E and A mainly). I’ll be talking more about this soon actually as I will be producing a multivitamin.
