Josh’s Take-Home Advice
“It’s been awesome taking over the MH Instagram Page,” wrote the strength trainer. “Let me leave you with some advice to use or simply ignore. It’s entirely up to you:
- Make sure you train with purpose
- Respect yourself and those around you
- Set not only small goals but dream big , seriously , aim big, win big.
- Squats and all its variations will help you regardless of your goals.
- Learn at least one new skill yearly.
- Communicate better.
- Eat more food and make sure it’s wholesome food (majority of people I help actually under eat and over indulge).
- Do what ever makes you happy (as long as it’s legal haha).
“Thank you to everyone at Men’s Health and all of the readers for the support and love with the September issue.”
