  1. Hi Coach!

    First of all thanks a lot for all what you´re doing, I love it. I listen to your podcast every week and I´m a CPPS Coach(Level 1 and 2).
    Loved your latest podcast as well! I didn´t agree 100% when you said a lunge to shoulder press(for example) is an exercise that sucks…you forgot that IT DEPENDS!!!
    If you doing it as a part of a contralateral circuit(from Cal Dietz), then it´s an amazing exercise exactly for the reason that you mentioned later: the heart has to pump blod to let´s say into the right leg and left arm/shoulder. That means you don´t need a ton of weight and you don´t have to work your a** off and you get an awesome aerobic training effect! Check out Cal´s Contralateral Circuit if you not familiar with it!

    Thanks again for everything and keep up the good work!
    Hope to see you one day and have a chat!
    take care, Gabor
