WOMP 109: ButterYourMacros - How hard should it be to achieve and maintain your goals? What does it take to stay lean year-round? Do I have to track forever? Ease entitlement, expectations, and keeping your head on straight-No exaggeration Natalie and Heidi are my two favorite people in this “fiTneSs SpACe”.

Jack has some of the best content on exercise technique and execution and does an amazing job distilling it down to the average consumer.-We talk about the present explosion of “biomechanics” and the importance of form and technique and how important it REALLY is...and what to do if you’re feeling overwhelmed by it all-Additionally, we discuss certain technique/form discussion that are both OVERRATED and UNDERRATED-I know you’ll enjoy it...and by "it" I mean Jack's accent.-Where to find Jack:IG: @jackhallowsfitnessWebsite: https://www.teamatlas.com.au/meet-your-coaches-Where to find me:IG: @JordanLipsFitnessPodcast: Where Optimal Meets PracticalWebsite: JordanLipsFitness.com-Apply for 1:1 Coaching HERESign up for FULL GYM group programming HERESign up for AT HOME group programming HEREHelping you find the balance between OPTIMAL and PRACTICAL-JL

To be honest, I have never seen a chiropractor and I don't have a really good understanding of what they do so this was a really helpful episode for me.

105: It’s not just WHAT you do it’s the INTENT/HEADSPACE with which you do it
2022/04/19
When we look at the habits and choices we make around food/fitness (or anything really) we can’t just look at the choices themselves, we have to be curious about WHY we’re making those choices and how they’re making us feel. Something as simple as tracking calories can be done with a wide range of positive and negative mindsets that we can’t really know if it’s right for someone if we don’t know what sort of headspace they’re in. In today’s episode we explore this idea around intent/headspace and how it affects our decisions and habits we engage in.Where to find me:Instagram: @JordanLipsFitnessYoutube: Jordan Lips FitnessPodcast: Where Optimal Meets PracticalWebsite: JordanLipsFitness.comEmail: JordanLips@Jordanlipsfitness.com.Apply for 1:1 Coaching HERESign up for FULL GYM group programming HERESign up for AT HOME group programming HERE.Helping you find the balance between OPTIMAL and PRACTICAL.JL

104: Katie Sonier - How to be more confident and have your own back..If you follow Katie you probably know her for hard training, transparency, and the fact that she oozes some bad. ass. confidence. That’s what I wanted to talk to her about today. What is confidence? and how can we become more confident? Is it possible to be both vulnerable AND confident?.We talk about Katie’s recent back injury and how getting injured really helped her become a better coach and better athlete..We also threw in some discussion of our training philosophies and why changing things up 24/7 probably isn’t the best plan for growth..Where to find Katie:IG: @katie_SonierWebsite: www.KatieSonier.com.Where to find me:IG: @JordanLipsFitnessPodcast: Where Optimal Meets PracticalWebsite: JordanLipsFitness.com.Apply for 1:1 Coaching HERESign up for FULL GYM group programming HERESign up for AT HOME group programming HERE.Helping you find the balance between OPTIMAL and PRACTICAL.JL

WOMP 102: Why I quit my cut after 3 days...---This episode isn't meant to be blanket information for everyone. I just wanted to use this episode to give you a peek inside my brain and thought process around why I didn't think cutting right now was ultimately a good idea. Maybe it will help you frame some of those conversations with yourself so you continue to make the most conscious, informed decisions about your nutrition/health journey---Where to find me:Instagram: @JordanLipsFitnessYoutube: Jordan Lips FitnessPodcast: Where Optimal Meets PracticalWebsite: JordanLipsFitness.comEmail: JordanLips@Jordanlipsfitness.comApply for 1:1 Coaching HERESign up for FULL GYM group programming HERESign up for AT HOME group programming HEREHelping you find the balance between OPTIMAL and PRACTICALJL
