Marcus Smith of Innerfight Gym, www.innerfight.com, was back in the studio, well we were in the gym, and we had a good chat about stuff that matters.
I particularly liked the belt conversation and of course the food segment with Holly!
No video this week BUT I did get on the floor and do a good 10 pushups that Marcus then critiqued.
Here is a look at the show notes and the links.

7. Thoughts on the pre fatigue principle?
The Pre-Fatigue Principle, also called pre-exhaustion technique, is excellent for helping to fully exhaust your muscles and help bust through a strength plateau that you may be suffering from. If it feels as though no matter what you do, you just can’t increase performance, this technique could help you go that extra distance.
Let’s go over what this is and how you can start it today.
What is the Pre-Fatigue Principle? (the Pre-Exhaustion Training Technique)
The pre-fatigue principle essentially consists of tiring out a smaller muscle group directly before you go to work a larger muscle group; or, training with single-joint exercise directly before multi-joint exercise.
Basically, it’s a way of ensuring that when you do one of your main workouts (whichever workout you are now stuck on), you can make sure that you are targeting and directly working the isolation muscle in question.
