In March 2019, Thom Tombs, Craig Hubert, myself, and many others attended the Resistance Exercise Conference (REC).

REC provides a great opportunity to meet like-minded professionals in the strength training industry, learn about the latest exercise science, and take your personal training business to the next level.

Following another unforgettable REC experience, Thom, Craig, and I, decided to do a roundtable podcast to talk about some of the highlights and give you a taste of what to expect at REC 2020 and beyond.

This episode is brought to you by ARXFit.com, ARX are the most innovative, efficient and effective all-in-one exercise machines I have ever seen. I was really impressed with my ARX workout. The intensity and adaptive resistance were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I love how the machine enables you to increase the negative load to fatigue target muscles more quickly and I love how the workouts are effortlessly quantified. The software tracks maximum force output, rate of work, total amount of work done and more in front of you on-screen, allowing you to compete with your pervious performance, to give you and your clients real-time motivation.

As well as being utilised by many HIT trainers to deliver highly effective and efficient workouts to their clients, ARX comes highly recommended by world-class trainers and brands including Bulletproof, Tony Robbins, and Ben Greenfield Fitness. To find out more about ARX and get $500 OFF install, please go to ARXFit.com and mention “High Intensity Business” in the how did you hear about us field – ORDER HERE

  • Lawrence, another great episode! Could you please expand on your neck training regime. I assume you lie on the floor on your front/back and press your forehead/back of the head into the mat for timed intervals using 50/75/100% force?

  • Since you mentioned Fred Hahn and how lean he looked, I’ve got to ask: Is there any demonstrated health benefit to being that lean?

    I’m pretty sure you can document adverse health outcomes from being over fat (>20% body fat for men). But, excepting some individuals who might have unusually high risk for metabolic disorders like T2 diabetes, what health benefits come from reducing body fat from ~20% to 10% or lower?

    This is important, because for many people, getting from 20% body fat to 10% or less is quite a challenge, requiring extreme discipline in terms of dietary compliance. No doubt that Fred’s diet works for him. But eating a low carb diet with a 6-hour eating window really is a highly restrictive and highly regimented way to approach eating. I’ve tried it, and find if very hard to do consistently.

    Just as people need to have a realistic view about the amount of muscle that can be gained, they also need to have a realistic view of what it might take to have “visible abs”.
