Nate Miyaki is “The People’s Physique Champ,” and even more importantly, he’s one helluva nice guy who I’m proud to call a friend. 

A 4-time Amazon #1 Best-Selling Author, Nate’s work has appeared in Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, Muscle & Fitness, LIVESTRONG, Bodybuilding.com and T-Nation.  He was named one of The 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness and one of the Top 50 Hottest Trainers in America.  

This episode delivers incredible value to anyone interested in building a bada$$ body that feels and performs as great as it looks!  You’ll benefit from me and Nate just catching up like old friends and chopping it up about all things training and nutrition.
