Mike Matthews takes us on a tour of epic proportions through exactly what it takes, and how long, to achieve an elite physique.

In the longest episode of the Road To Ripped podcast to date, we sit and talk with Mike about anything and everything pertaining to busting myths and how to make steady progress with your physique.

Mike, even after 6 years of training, had an OK physique – but he wasn’t satisfied with OK. He wanted incredible.

So he made some minor shifts in his training. And holy crap did it make a big difference. Just check out his before and after pics below…

Sit back, grab a cup of coffee or go on a long walk, and enjoy as we wade through the following topics and a TON more:

  • - What exactly did Mike do to make such a profound change?  
  • - How long did it take him to achieve this? And what should you expect?
  • - Mike’s sage advice for people beginning this journey
  • - The difference between effective men’s and women’s training protocols
  • - How the supplement industry is completely screwed up, and what he’s going to do about it
  • - And much, much more…

If you enjoy this episode, or any of our other episodes, we’d love to hear a review in iTunes :) The more reviews we have, the easier it is to stay on the Top-10 charts.

We need everyone’s help to keep this thing on the charts & expose it to more of the mainstream, so people don’t feel like they only need to listen Jillian Michaels all the time.

    Another great podcast! I love Mike and have read all his books. You and Greg are great! I’ve tried listening to other fitness podcasts and they are terrible. Abel James, Mike Mathews, and RTR are the best podcasts available and the only ones I can stand listening too! If you want to learn how to get more, and do less, this is for you!

    I never can download the episodes… It seems it just doesn’t work. I’d like to hear it while cycling.

      What browser do you try it with? Or are you using Safari on your iphone? If you have an iphone you can download the episodes in the podcast app, or you can use Stitcher.

    Love this show! Hey Chris and Greg: Do you guys think you could have Marian Cerny on the show? His website is nowillnoskill.net
    The site is freaking sweet and he has the similar approaches to you guys except he also does some freaking sweet movements like parkour and tricking.

      Definitely, we’ll check out his site – thanks for the recommendation Ricky!

    Wondering if you can make the audios in text form to read. There are times unable to listen, so having the text would be great.

    NG continues to be my Go To site for the latest health and fitness.
