Why Most Supplements Are Crap, How to Go Through a ‘Shred’ Phase, and What to Look For in a CrossFit Coach with Life Ready Foods Owner Sean Cronan on the Iron Crew Podcast


Danny chats with Sean Cronan, founder and owner of Life Ready Foods!  In a supplement world full of fillers, additives, and flat out crap, Sean is committed to providing clean ingredients in his products.  Danny and Sean talk all about the current state of the supplement industry, how he started his company from scratch, and why many people don’t even need a post workout protein shake.  They also discuss the nasty world of water polo, how to properly go through a “shred phase” to get lean, why getting bored easily can be a good thing, and how putting an event in your calendar is the most valuable tool to help you stay motivated.  

Before their conversation, Danny is reminded of why having a hobby is crucial for quality of life, shares his upcoming vacation plans, and the pros and cons of Orange Theory.  Danny also gives his advice to CrossFit gym owners on what to look for when hiring a coach.  Finally, Danny answers a listener question regarding how to handle a coach who is trying to push you too hard.
