Healthiest Organic Peanut Butter Brands

I was writing a Facebook post on my Josh Spencer Fitness page about the healthiest organic peanut butter brands and realized after doing some research on Google that most of the recommendations were terrible.

Your Late Night Cravings

It’s 11 PM. You’re a week into starting your fitness journey and you’re sitting on the couch, stomach rumbling because you’re so damn hungry. For 10 minutes you have an internal battle with yourself. On one shoulder the angel is telling you to be good and resist the temptations. On the other the little devil […]

The Spencer Carb Cycling Plan

Right now I’m in the best shape of my life. Have I been leaner before? Yeah, when I was about 16 lbs lighter than I am now. I was ripped as hell, but I also lacked strength. In the past, it’s always been one or the other. I was either strong, big, and bulky or […]

One of the most common questions that I get asked from people that I coach revolves around whether or not they should be doing fasted workouts.

Tips Before Starting a Beachbody Program

Something that I tend to forget to do, though, is give them all the proper tips before starting a Beachbody program. My intentions are there and I usually give them […]

Dealing With Parasites

Here I am, 4 months after returning home from Mexico, still dealing with parasites. I’ve been trying to stay as strong as I possibly can be, especially with my posts on Facebook and my interaction with the thousands of Coaches on my team, but it would be a complete lie to say that this hasn’t […]

Do I Have Parasites?

Do I have parasites? That’s what I was asking myself about 4 weeks ago when I saw someone else post that they tested positive for parasites after returning from Mexico. I was on that same trip and began experiencing very strange symptoms. Let me share my story, and maybe it will be able to help […]
