This week's episode is recorded from The Grove Resort & Spa in Orlando, Florida. Joe kicks off the show by giving the audience an update on his family vacation, then he gets into the training/nutrition talk. The first half of the show is dedicated to VACATION TRAINING. Joe talks about how his "vacation training philosophy" has changed over the years, how he deals with bad hotel gyms and how YOU should approach your vacation/hotel workouts for maximum (longterm) gains. During the second half of the show Joe discusses MEAL FREQUENCY and its affect on fat loss. Is there really a difference between eating 1-2 meals a day versus 4-5 meals a day (if calories remain the same)? Joe provides his thoughts and experiences...and shares his new "system" of eating - which has been way more conducive to his lifestyle and "fat kid" mentality :)

This week's show gets off to a rough start as Joe shares his recent cell phone (Sprint) problems with Cameron. This leads to a brief discussion about customer service, giving 100% at work...and pumping your own gas?!? After Joe's rant is out of the way, he and Cam get down to business! Together, they discuss how they can improve the out-dated, flawed football conditioning tests that have been around throughout their lifetime, i.e., half-gassers, 16 110's and the 300-yard shuttle. During this episode, you will get to be a "fly on the wall" as Joe & Cam discuss the latest research, time-motion analysis and their personal experiences training thousands of football players. By the end of the show they create new, easy-to-apply, position-specific football conditioning tests that coaches and trainers around the world can now implement!!
