This week we discuss:

  • The death of Charles Poliquin
  • The Alan Aragon sex scandal
  • The venomous backlash we received from an instagram post that we are not allowed to refer to pregnant women as such, and must instead be called ‘pregnant people’. This trivialises and makes a mockery of trans-rights issues by getting caught up in semantics. Some readers argued that doing so also denies biological women their femininity where pregnancy is seen as an exclusive right. Equally, ‘pregnant people’ excludes those who do not identify as pregnant, or as people. It’s a minefield.

Deepest apologies to any pregnant…

PT apps and online platforms are the latest craze. You’ve probably come across at least one before? MyPTHub. Trainerize. PT Distinction. The list goes on.

Today, I want to briefly give you my opinion on them and ultimately explain why we don’t use one. A few years ago, online businesses experienced something now known as the “Google slap”. Literally, overnight businesses reliant on aspects of Google’s algorithm went out of…

By popular demand, I’m releasing another freebie from our flagship programme, the Propane Protocol, where we cover much more than just getting big arms. Here, I share everything that I’ve picked up from working as an investment banker, degrees, professional qualifications and years of trading, and distilled it down to some key actionable points.

If you identify your financial leaks, and treat them like a bug that needs to be squashed before moving on with your financial planning, then you will literally save yourself years. …

This week, we spoke to Dr Anthony Jay, Biochemist, researcher and author of Estrogeneration. Do not miss this one, dude is a boss.

As you may have heard from some previous episodes, Jonny and I are in the midst of doing some self-experiments. After reading some of Dr Jay’s work, I ran a male hormone panel on myself using Medichecks (use code PROPANE10 for 10% off). The goal is to see whether minimising my exposure to environmental oestrogens has an effect on my blood levels of testosterone.

n this Shot of Propane Jonny discusses what constitutes a real flexible diet and why it isn’t just about making Pop-Tarts and Pizza fit your macros.



If eating out fills you with anxiety about going over your macros and sends you into a tailspin, then perhaps you need to review your idea of flexibility. Take an objective view of the bigger picture rather than being emotionally attached to your daily macros.
