Amber Brueseke: Strength Training, Mental Toughness and “Biceps after Babies”

Amber Brueseke: Strength Training, Mental Toughness and “Biceps after Babies”

July 6, 2020

Amber Brueseke is @Biceps.after.Babies.  We had such a great conversation around motivation, strength training for women, mental toughness and more.

She writes on her site:

"I'm a CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER, a FITNESS INSTRUCTOR, and a REGISTERED NURSE, but first and foremost I am a mom of four. I am a goal-setting girl boss who can't imagine a world without chocolate and peanut butter (combined, preferably).

Most days you can find me trying to balance my life: keeping a clean house, making healthy meals for my family, and shuttling my kids to cubscouts and gymnastics, all while serving in my church, reading uplifting literature, and raising responsible citizens.

It can be exhausting to keep all the balls in the air! But I know how important it is to recharge with some me time. When I get my sweat on, throw some heavy weights around, and fuel my body with the right nutrition, I’m a better wife, mom, sister, and friend.

There’s no reason why you or your body goals should be pushed to the back burner because you’re a mom with a bajillion responsibilities.

I work with moms who need to jump start their fitness goals, from losing fat, gaining muscle, or simply developing a better relationship with food.

I can teach you how to get a rockin’ body that you’ll love at every stage of life, whether you’re a twenty-something professional or a grandmother of 12."

Rev. Jeff Grant: When to Move in a Time of Stuck

Rev. Jeff Grant: When to Move in a Time of Stuck

March 18, 2020

Back on the podcast - one of my favorite people, Jeff Grant. I first heard him last year on Rich Roll's podcast, we connected and he was a guest on Episode 112. You can listen here. 

After we spoke on the Daily Community Meeting yesterday, we decided to put up a podcast for today - words for a time we need HOPE. 

He IS the epitome of hope.

Rev. Jeff Grant, JD., M.Div. is an ordained minister with over three decades of experience in crisis management, business, law, reentry, recovery (clean & sober 16+ years), and executive & religious leadership.

He provides confidential pastoral and spiritual care and support to individuals, families and organizations in the areas of personal crisis management, criminal justice/prisoner reentry, opioid and substance abuse, bipolar disorder/mental illness, and interfaith religion. Sometimes referred to in the press as “The Minister to Hedge Funders,” he regularly uses his experience and background to guide people faithfully forward in their lives, relationships, careers and business opportunities, and to help them from making the kinds of decisions that previously resulted in loss, suffering and shame. As an ordained minister, conversations and communications between Jeff and those he serves fall under clergy privilege laws.

This is one reason that attorneys often allow and encourage their clients to maintain relationships with Jeff while in active prosecution or litigation situations. After an addiction to prescription opioids and serving almost fourteen months in a Federal prison for a white-collar crime he committed when he was a lawyer, Jeff started his own reentry – earning a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, with a focus in Christian Social Ethics. After graduating from divinity school, Jeff was called to serve at an inner city church in Bridgeport, CT as Associate Minister and Director of Prison Ministries.

He, and his wife and partner-in-ministry Lynn Springer, then co-founded Progressive Prison Ministries, Inc. (Greenwich, CT), the first ministry in the United States created to provide confidential support and pastoral care to individuals, families and organizations with white-collar and other nonviolent incarceration issues.

Mike Matthews: Thinner (or Bigger), Leaner, Stronger

Mike Matthews: Thinner (or Bigger), Leaner, Stronger

February 2, 2020

Mike Matthews believes that EVERYONE can have the body they want.  We could have talked FOREVER on all the things, but I know that I fell IN LOVE with the TRUTH in his book: Thinner, Leaner, Stronger this past summer. My guy friends love his book, Bigger Leaner Stronger, BTW.

He writes, "My mission is to give everyone that opportunity by providing time-proven, evidence-based advice on how to build muscle, lose fat, and get and stay healthy.

I’ve been training for more than a decade now. In that time, I’ve read thousands of pages of scientific literature and tried just about every type of workout program, diet regimen, and supplement you can imagine. At this point, I can confidently say that while I don’t know everything, I know what works and what doesn’t.

Like most people who get into weightlifting, I had no clue what I was doing when I started out. I turned to fitness magazines for help, which told me to spend a couple of hours in the gym every day and hundreds of dollars on pills and powders every month. This went on for years, and I jumped from diet to diet, workout program to workout program, and supplement to supplement, only to make mediocre progress and eventually get stuck in a rut.

I then turned to personal trainers for guidance, but they had me do more of the same. After spending many thousands of dollars with them, I still hadn’t gained any more muscle or strength to speak of, and I still had no idea what to do with my diet and training to reach my goals. I liked working out too much to quit, but I wasn’t happy with my body and didn’t know what I was doing wrong.

I didn’t look bad by any means, but that’s not exactly what you’d expect from 1500-plus hours of working out with no extended breaks.

I finally decided that something had to change, and I knew that I needed to start with learning the actual physiology of muscle growth and fat loss. So I threw the magazines away, fired the trainers, got off the internet forums, and searched out the work of top strength and bodybuilding coaches, talked to scores of natural bodybuilders, and started reading scientific papers.

Several months later, a clear picture was beginning to emerge.

The real science of getting into incredible shape is very simple—much simpler than the fitness industry wants us to believe. It flies in the face of a lot of the stuff we see on TV, Instagram, and YouTube and read in books, articles, and magazines.

For example:

  • You don’t need supplements to build a great physique.
  • You don’t need to constantly change up your workout routine to “confuse” your muscles.
  • You don’t need to “eat clean” to get and stay lean.
  • You don’t need to stop eating carbs and sugars to lose weight.
  • You don’t need to eat small meals every few hours to “boost your metabolism.”
  • You don’t need to grind out hours and hours of boring cardio every week to get a ripped core.

You don’t need to be in the gym hours per day and sacrifice your relationships with your friends and loved ones.

As a result of what I had learned, I completely changed my approach to eating and exercising, and my body responded in ways I couldn’t believe. My strength skyrocketed. My muscles started growing again. My energy levels went through the roof. And here’s the kicker: I was spending less time in the gym, doing less cardio, and eating foods I actually liked."

The Books:

For women: Thinner, Leaner, Stronger 
For men: 
Bigger Leaner Stronger
