The Simple Workout Plan You’ve Been Waiting For: A Minimalist’s Guide Open up the interwebz and search for training or workout programs and you’ll get a few million results, maybe more. You will find all sorts of beliefs, theologies, and principles. You could read about several per day and never reach an end you would die before that happened. Simple Workout Log is the best minimalist workout tracker available.

It is quick and easy to use in the gym so it doesn’t get in your way, or slow you down. Simple Workout Log helps you log your workouts and visually track your progress through the use of intuitive charts, helping keep you motivated. Jennifer Tritt with No Sidebar shares how to craft a minimalist fitness plan.

Episode 1073: Crafting a Minimalist Fitness Plan by Jennifer Tritt with No Sidebar (Simple Workout Routine & Minimalism Health) No Sidebar was created by Brian Gardner and is all about designing a simpler life. It’s only 32 minutes of exercise per week, or just over 2 hours for the month. So there are no excuses for not completing all the workouts. Of course, if, for some reason, you miss a workout, that’s fine. Just don’t ever miss two in a row.

That’s pretty much it for the program. It’s simple, it’s brief, it’s challenging, it’s. Buy something that is flattering.

Learn your shape, try on new clothing you never thought to try on before to see if you have been choosing the wrong types of clothes all along. As one piece comes in one goes out. If you are buying something new for your minimalist wardrobe then try to take something out in its place. Metaburn90 is a complete 90-day fitness system to get you in best shape of your life, no matter if you train at a gym or at home. Created by trainer and YouTube fitness expert Scott Herman, the program includes 15 fun, intense full-body workouts to help you shredding fat, building muscular fitness, and totally transform your body with very little equipment needed.

Most minimalists would boast about the small amount of clothing they have. They may limit themselves to 10 or 20 pieces. And while having an extremely minimal wardrobe may work well for them it doesn’t work for everyone.

I’m no clothing minimalist, and I don’t expect you to be either. Now the part you’re waiting for: the rucking workout plan. Rucking Training Plan – Week 1. Monday – 1 miles, no weight in your backpack. Tuesday – other training. Wednesday – 1.5 miles, no weight in your backpack.

Thursday – rest day. Friday – 2 miles, 10lbs. Keep a pace of two miles per hour. Saturday – 2 miles, 15lbs. Because everyone’s situation is different, I want you to have some resources to tackle your finance and debt problems, so I wrote a separate essay called Financial Freedom: 5 Difficult Steps to Get Out of Debt, Create a Simple Budget, Plan for the Future, and Regain Control of Your Finances, which includes a step-by-step plan to help you.

I created Be More with Less and minimalist fashion challenge Project 333. I spent much of my adult life tired, stressed, sick and doing work I didn’t care about to make ends meet. I always wanted more or thought I needed more to be happy, but realized after years of decluttering and letting go that happiness isn’t waiting for us, it’s.

  • Hello! Thanks a lot for this useful video. By the way, I notice a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (google search it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried Custokebon Secrets? I’ve heard many great things about it and my cooworker lost a lot of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

  • Here is a tip for the toilet…

    Clean bowl, spray bowl rim and under seat, lower seat, spray seat and under lid” close lid, spray lid and exterior. Wiped down exterior and go backwards wiping down all sprayed part ending with the under seat and bowl rim. This is the most faulty place of the toilet and the way it was cleaned in this video there is fecal matter on the handle.

  • I have an old ” work ” bicycle ( a tourer with a pannier rack that can take luggage ) and no car and have to use it. Granted it’s not a solution for many many people but it works for us.

  • Dance party! Put on some headphones and dance your heart out! Also, I personally hula hoop a lot and have about 5 hoops because of that. Also swimming

  • Not only I lost fat and gained muscle, but I feel more energized and productive throughout the day. My sleep has also improved drastically. Website called Next Level Diet really changed my life for the better

  • I’m following Josh’s lead from a previous video about taking the morning for myself. I’m enjoying my weight training, cardio and yoga routines in the morning along with quiet time. Thanks for sharing Josh.

  • Your dry humor reminds me of myself… It’s the completely off topic and unrelated stuff where someone waits for something more to be said only to be told, you didn’t mean anything more than what you said. Epic! I get people smacking their heads like this all the time! Lol! ��

  • As a fellow coffee guy, this is great advice! If you’ve never looked into a Kalita Wave I suggest that as well because there is less room for human error!
    Also the Intro video was great!

  • “Imagine you’re 18, and your feeling the touch of a woman for the first time.”

    Dude, I’m 22 and it’s only recently I’ve felt the touch of a woman for the first time lmao ������ #NoLongerSingle

  • I’ve been meaning to text you guys this because I keep hearing on the podcast people asking about exercising, but everyone should check out I have no affiliation with them other than using it myself. They are donation supported, completely free, 0 equipment workouts (except for the weight lifting workouts, obv.). They have tons of different programs, videos to show you the moves, etc…

    My favorite part is there’s no BS. They show you the moves, how many reps + sets to do and thats it. I don’t need to pop a DVD in, listen to the same crap over and over. I open the PDF, see what I have to do that day and get started, cuts my workout times immensely.

  • Good one.
    You could make a video on grind size on the encore.
    Another idea is a v60 guide or introduction into the diversity of it.

  • This video is amazing! It helps me recall of the time when my sister used Custokebon Secrets to lose 19 lbs and enjoy being healthy again! Many people want to lose fat, however we also require to stay healthy and balanced, and that’s exactly what Custokebon Secrets given.

  • I feel because you live with less clutter your cleaning looks both quick and enjoyable. This is giving me the boost i need to declutter even more ��

  • At one point in my life I was poor and living in a tiny room. I had no equipment and couldn’t afford a gym membership so I just used my body. I started working towards a one leg squat and one arm push-up which I eventually achieved. For cardio I would do hill sprints. I really enjoyed the simplicity of working out back then.

  • not enought minimalist to me. I mean, Read Pavel… POWER TO THE PEOPLE. isnt what I do now. but I do it years ago and works.
    now I do 4 exercises, Deadlift, Bridge, Floor Press and Overhead Press. and thats it, One Exercise a Day LOW VOL HIGH INTENSITY, LONG REST, SLOW TEMPO. usually 5×5 but sometimes less. Try it.

  • I love doing HIIT workouts. Doing HIIT or tabata workouts give you more endurance and burn more calories in 10 minutes than most of those machines do in 1 hour. Great advice. Love these videos.

  • This year I realized I was indoors and sitting way too much so this winter I decided to walk outside everyday no matter what weather it was no matter how cold it was. I failed a few times but it was a good challenge.

  • It would be a shame for you not to get rid of fat while other typical people are capable to shed weight quickly by using Custokebon Secrets (just google search it).

  • Sucks we can’t get infuse or blue land in Canada… does anyone have any suggestions for other cleaning companies who do this sort of thing I can get in Canada? ����

  • Ashlynne your plants looks GORGEOUS! So healthy and happy �� I just dusted mine this morning as well! I’m in love with your desk, do you know where you found it?

  • Working out each muscle group a day is not really enough to cause muscle protien synthesis. Try to work out each muscle group 2 or more times a week by grouping muscle groups, eg upper lower, push pull legs, etx

  • Subscribed! Loved this video and your apartment is beautiful. Look forward to your next cleaning video! I’m also a YouTube and would love to help support each other ��

  • Great video! An in depth story of your college experience, why you left, and what you learned from that decision would interest me (and hopefully the channel in general, haha). You said once that “My plan for the future is simple: I don’t have a plan for the future” but I’d be interested to hear what some of your long term goals are, even if you don’t know quite how you’ll get there what’s important to you?

  • Humans tend to complicate everything! How many people have dogs that don’t get walked daily? How many bikes are hidden in the back of the garage with flat tires? Here’s a novel idea…park the car and walk��

  • This is a great video. Minimalist: free, can do at home or in your neighborhood, classic calisthenics or running. To reach the recommended minimum exercise. Removal of barriers. Thank you.

  • I made it a habit that I cycle to work every day 3.3 miles (5.3 km) each way have been doing it for 7 months now and have lost 11lb and thats without changing my diet.

  • I’ve just realised I’m a minimalist when it comes to working out, monday Chest abs, tuesday hamstrings calves, Wednesday shoulders arms, thursday quads calves, Friday back abs this way the workouts are very specific focus happy days

  • Even better theres a app called calisthenics park where u find outdoor fitness parks near u especially in new york, NJ and other state that come with dip bars, pull ups, sit up bars and everything u need with a community of all types of ppl that are kind and helpful giving workout tips asking them questions and a great channel recommendation is gunby publishing who interviews random guys who workout outdoors with great knowledge and wisdom

  • YouTube is a great source for workouts with or without equipment! Jump ropes are the best. You can get cardio practically anywhere ��

  • I love these convoys and this topic is ace but I’m really struggling to listen with this echo. I know you’re minimalist buuuut stick some more stuff in the room to stop the echo ��

  • So I keep my workout basic that I can advance the next time I go to the gym. Also note I do my exercises normally outside for a reason being freedom. I am leveraging outdoor is because I do a training methods used in the Movnat Program. Movnat is simply a fitness based program for you to move around freely like a parkour but everything is inside it like lifting, self defense, swimming, and meditation. It feels like you are feeling like a kid again.
    The basics for me consists of; Push ups/dips, Pull ups /Rows, Plank/Leg Raises, Squats/Dead Lifts/lunges, and running/jump ropes/quadrilateral movements (cardio) for strength. Then I practice training in Jumping, Landing, Climbing, Vaults, Balancing, and sprinting for evading capture or utilizing landscapes to move from A-B. On my daily basis I do lifting (e.g. carrying baby carts, suit cases, pound of sand, and helping out community gardening/shoveling/grooming ON MY OWN). I don’t honestly care about the diet, I just need to consider using those energy to move next day.

  • How would you use the minimalist approach for losing weight? Finding 20 minutes a day is easy, anymore than that, not so much. I’m a full time student on top of working 60 hours a week so finding any extra free time is rare and if I do have free time, its cherished and spent with my husband.

  • I have been looking at the Infuse products for a while now. Finally just went ahead and bought me my first bottle because of this video lol. I truly love it. I am slowly even phasing out of disinfecting wipes and use force of nature as my disinfecting portion of my cleaning. Both of these together awesome!

  • My minimalist fitness routine is I cycle to work every day, I walk whenever possible and I workout at home 3 times a week doing just two exercises.

  • FYI the nozzle looking part for your toilet cleaning product is so you can distribute the product inside the lip of the bowl. I’m not sure what that part is called but it helps to pour it that way, then let it sit so it can disinfect the bowl before you start going to town with the toilet brush. Just a tip. Enjoyed the video!

  • Nice video and makes perfect sense. I’ve incorporated doing sports (either a short body workout, swimming or running) on almost 6 out of 7 days a week. It gives me energy, makes me happy, and it’s just an insanely cheap and useful activity if you look at value versus price. I might try the fasting thing, but if I skip breakfast, by the time it’s 12 my concentration drops in half, so I don’t think it’s something for me.

  • This is some great advice… except it’s never actually 20 minutes, because if you’re properly warming up/cooling down, stretching etc. the time when your heart rate is actually up is definitely going to be less than 20 minutes! If you’re doing intense exercise 20 min a day every day without properly warming up and stretching you’re just asking for injury, in my opinion.

  • I have a daily, weekly and monthly items I clean and a whole routine BUT I generally use white vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as my go to cleaners. Safe, effective and kind to the environment…also inexpensive!

  • I loved this video, this motivates me to be minimalist so i can have a clean house like yours, i just want to suggest you not to leave water running while washing the dishes, i hope you don’t take this as a hate comment ����

  • I live in Ohio and I just bundled up and went to the park today and did leg reps and push ups using a picnic table. Fresh air and a work out for free using my body weight. Awesome video gabe!

  • I want to get into coffee and the industry. I mean, from the most basic I need to learn to knowing something about this art. Apart from Sterling’s, any other Youtube channels you can recommend to learn from?

  • After trying all the coffee brewing methods I have, french press is overrated. My top 3 are Aeropress, Moka Pot, and vacuum siphon.

  • I noticed that when you cleaned your toilet, you just squirted the cleaner into it. The cap/neck of the cleaner is made to go around the rim of the toilet to clean that part of it. I don’t want to seem rude, just leaving this comment as a helpful tip.

  • A YouTube channel called “Minus the Gym” is excellent for home training. Some equipment is used but some isn’t. And if you don’t have a chin-up bar, maybe a soccer field”s goal post bar overhead.
    Bodyweight squats facing a wall (to remind for good posture) are good. Tons of YouTube videos on how to (gradually) do one-legged squats.
    Lots of YouTube videos guiding people through cardio / shadowboxing / shadow kickboxing workouts, and rehab / foam rolling / stretching exercises. Even seniors’ cardio workouts.
    If you’re really into training at home, maybe buy a pair of adjustable Olympic rings or TRXs?

  • First video of yours I watch after seeing you in one of Matt D’Avella’s. I enjoyed the content and videography but not so much the audio not used to “minimalist” videos having so much modern pop music but maybe that’s just me. You speak a bit too fast (had a coffee before the video?), whereas other minimalism videos I’ve seen have more intentionally slow-paced narrative.

  • One can cycle, swim, walk and
    hike. You do not even need your
    own bike. Here in Switzerland
    we can rent the latest bikes,
    skateboards and….. at various
    stations and very cheaply.
    Hiking and walking is free.
    We have plenty of forests and
    mountains with great hiking
    trials. Swimming in lakes is
    free. We have plenty of lakes.
    Plus we do not even need a car.
    From our SBB stations one can
    hire new and clean cars on the
    Mobility Car Sharing scheme.
    Plus our public transport serves
    the entire country. Guess we are
    extremely fortunate living here.
    I know in USA people like to have
    loads of things stuff filing their
    lives. Pity they do not become
    minimalists and live with less.

  • Okay, that mop looks like something from the future. How cool! I’m going to have to check that out. Love your minimalist style �� gold!

  • I see a lot of judgement here in the comments and I want to remind you not to take it seriously you should clean however u want to and thanks for sharing ur routine I applaud you for cleaning:)

    As for u judgemental people keep in mind everyone has their own routine and if she wants tips remember she has google and youtube im sure she knows how to use them

  • I hate gyms and the type of exercise it invloves. Can’t motivate myself to do them. Also, I don’t need them to lose weight. I’m one of those people who seemingly can eat everything and not go to the gym, but I once saw a documentary about this that followed 3 of those people in their lives for a month and it turned out they did a lot that I do. But I like hoopdance, which is arguably the best thing you can do while social distancing. And gentle pilates by a good teacher, who worked with dan ers, not one of those gym types. And I like to just be active. Walk, chores, gardening, getting groceries by bicycle instead of car. Taking the stairs consistently. Little things like that make a huge difference.

  • This is what I do
    Sunday. Burpees and pushups
    Wednesday, rows, pushups, overhead and arms.
    Done lol also work a manual labor job so…

  • You should try Force of Nature. I use it at my daycare job. It’s sustainable, reusable, pet and child safe, kills the virus, and multi-purpose. It also has only 3 ingredients so it has less chemicals. I love it and have recently bought it.

  • Just a friendly tip for the toilet wiping. �� You should always wipe from cleanest to dirtiest so you start from the lid and work your way down to the rim. That’s how we do it in the hotel business. ��

  • would you ever consider doing a video on different filters esp. for V60?? (metal, paper, bamboo etc.) I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the taste difference

  • Fun fact: The types of figurative language that Matt D’ Avella uses in the beginning of the video where not metaphors, there were similes.

    I know, Im a nerd. (im sorry)

  • Just popped up. Nice video.but i bet you have no grankids visited for a week and i had forgotten how much mess they can make

  • If you like the Aeropress you will love the Wacaco’s Nanopresso. It is magical, extracts all the oils and it is by FAR the closest to my La Marzocco Linea Mini in terms of quality and extraction efficiency. And it is way cheaper (100$ with the double espresso add ons). Greetings from Costa Rica.

  • Hi Ashlynne. Just wanted to say your videos have given me even more inspiration to de clutter even more in more specific areas n my house. Thank you keep up the good work. Mainly in my kids room. Just saw this video and saw the desk you have in the living room wanted to know where you got it from?

  • That is a little weird for the apartment building to require that but many counties/municipalities require that. I think it has something to do with keeping the process a little cleaner/neater and when it comes to trash day, recycling can be easily distinguished between trash (if its all picked up at the same day).

    Thanks for the video, I might try to implement some of these things but tougher with a baby and a larger space! lol Since we have more room, I don’t put out the recycling until I have a full blue bag of cans/bottles. This way, I am not wasting a bag every week on just a few items. Also, I reuse the huge toilet paper plastic packages for storing paper and other plastic wraps for months before putting them to the curb (We have to separate these where I live in Canada). This helps save time as I don’t have to do it every week and I’m not wasting as much plastic.

  • You are doing way too much. 2 days a week, full body routine. Quick warm up, 8-12 exercises, single set on each exercise TO FAILURE. Track your weight & reps. You will see gradual progress. Since you are already fairly fit, you won’t be making any more big changes, so you can cut a lot of what you are doing. At this point long term sustainability is where its at. Look into the concept of minimum dose of exercise.

  • Crazy ironyI literally JUST tried jumping rope….first time in years. I set a timer for 2 minutes. After what seemed like 5 minutes I realized I set the timer to 2 hours! Definitely takes getting used to but can see it being a great work out.

  • Hola! Podrían activar subtítulos? Soy de Chile, vi el documental en Netflix y me encantó.
    Sería ideal que tengan subtítulos ��.
    Gracias ♥️

  • Fancy doing a Q&A, I know its not your usual style, could do it on insta stories? I imagine ppl have a lot of Q’s for you! I certainly do:)

  • Just discovered your channel and liking it so far. But I got to say ur bicep and pecs look great for doing the level of working out tou do.. hard to believe actually. What are your stats if I may ask.

  • Great video but filter coffee is anything but minimalist! You need 4 different things to make a coffee. Minimalist would be a machine and that’s it. But how I feel minimalism should be is having the things you love the most. If it’s coffee, do it up!

  • For starters I wouldn’t recommend immersion methods, a lot of people when starting out don’t usually like body. My favorite methods so far are v60, chemex, beehouse and maybe aero press.

  • It’s pretty easy for me. I don’t do a bunch of fluff on the machines. Plus I mainly focus on boxing.

    Workout A:
    Bench Press
    Weighted Chin Ups

    Workout B:
    Overhead Press

    2-3 days per week

  • Ya don’t need a thing to have a healthy exercise routine. Your body can be your weight-set, and there’s loads of creative ways to get it done. That said, if you want to achieve a certain look, go the extra mile, you will probably want to invest in a gym membership, imo. That variety and physical weights are super useful, if costly. It could be best to invest in some used equipment (much cheaper in long run), have a little home gym, but bulky equipment is not so minimalist, especially living in a small apartment. This is where I find myself torn. For now, I will stick to body weight workouts and playing with intervals. That’s always space, time, and money efficient!

  • Super proud of you Ashlynne, congrats on 100K, glad that more famous youtubers mentioned you in their videos and helped you with your goal cause you deserve it. Greetings from Croatia as always ❤️

  • on the point of being a minimalist in the gym, how do you handle your gym clothing? If you have a small wardrobe, do you just wash what you used right away ( probably what i would do)?

  • Studies have shown that walking for 30 minutes a day makes a significant positive influence on your health even if it’s the only exercise you get. People underestimate how important it is

  • ‘Now a lot of people like to make fun of cross-fit �� I can see your roots in comedy, really made me laugh out loud! Loving your stuff, Dude����������

  • I cringe every time people say “nasty chemicals”. All chemicals are in a formulation for a specific reason. And some of the more “pretty looking cleaning products” generally don’t have effective detergency. Its good enough to remove dust and minimal stains.

  • I saw target was carrying Infuse brand, I think I’m going to try them once I use up all current cleaning supplies. The only downer was the Norwex cloths… don’t take this wrong but it’s an MLM, even on the site you see it asking for host parties or buy with a consultant, then it asks at check out if you’re buying with a party or consultant. I don’t know, I guess it will give your order to a local consultant then that person is going to try and get you to sign up under their team. So yeah, still support you just don’t support MLM’s. ��

  • Hey man, wdy think about Calisthenics?

    I’ve been into calisthenics for 3 months, increased my core and now getting back into the gym, but with a focus on weighted calisthenics. Thing is, I’m trying to avoid machines as much as possible and focus on bodyweight (now weighted) exercises (think: weighted pull-ups, etc.).

    I’d love to know your take on calisthenics, especially as it’s more ‘compatible’ with the minimalist lifestyle.

  • The Intro was liiiiiit hahaha you nailed it!:D

    Besides, here are some thoughts of mine:
    1) If I understood you right, you said something about Iced Coffee with the Aeropress in the video about it?!
    That would be nice to see since I don’t have a v60 yet
    2) I’d love to see as well a video for the Aeropress where you show the Inverted Methode:)

    But man, simply love your videos, just keep on doing!

  • I do my workouts mostly at my university’s gym before or in between classes, but I never forego the essential series and patterns of movement whenever I’m home or at the park.
    I don’t need the equipment to do what’s “basic” and effective, but I also have access to the gym.
    It’s a balance I’ve learned to manage quite well.

  • I should be asleep. Instead I’m watching about minimalist coffee. That’s what life has become. Needless to say I can’t wait to wake up and make a danky cup of brew…

  • I would love a video on how you take care of your house plants to keep them healthy and alive. Specifically on watering them. Thanks!

  • Sterling! I am also a specialty coffee barista in Southern Metro Denver! You should go to different roasters or coffee shops, pick up some coffee and review it! I would love to hear your opinions on different roasts, blends, and origins!

  • With that pour over coffee method, can that be used for loose leaf tea also? I currently have a french press. I really like making pour overs though so I am glad you made this video so I can see where to start. making coffee is such a great calming ritual. Your intro is the what it feels like after the caffeine gets into your system. haha:)

  • Jump rope? I don’t know what that is…hold on jump & rope = skipping? Yes, it is. Ah, American literalism strikes again like ‘ wash cloth’ for flannel ( ah, how I reminisce about the 10 minute hotel reception discussion about that..).
    Must remember how to think like a non native English speaker when encountering American nouns & idioms.
    Do I get the minimalist police turning up at my door for the length of this post? They won’t get past the ddor anyway.

  • Oh man! That mop is horrible! I returned it the next day! Cheaply made, it leaked and sprayer wasn’t good! The cleaner was ok, but it doesnt say anything about being a disinfectant or antibacterial, so i dont trust it. Its just a nice smelling water.

  • What are you using to get rid of the fuzz and pill on your couch? Ours has so much I didn’t know there was something to help out with this!

  • For all those starting out, here is the real deal. Push Pull is the key to fast and consitent muscle gain. Hit the group muscles every two days. I also go 6x a week only 45 min a day and I started 6 month ago and are probably better in shape than Matt. After so many years, done right and hitting the gym 6x a week he should definitely look different. Don’t forget that nutrition, at the end is the key to success! The results come from 35% gym 65% nutrition.

    But the other advices he gives a very good. Keep it slow. Be patient with yourself and don’t over do it. Yet one advice I would give to you, in each exercises try to fatigue yourself as much as you can. Go for it, make yourself tired and give everything you have! You need to feel proud of yourself when you are leaving the gym and you should have a nice feeling of feeling pumped amd that you can’t move as easily your body parts.

    Well that’s it from my part. Here I leave a link to my workout routine, which has been the most effective one.

  • Just wondering no judging:) Why do you only vacuum carpets but not floors too? Vacuums generally comes with pieces to use on different surfaces.

  • Pavel Tsatsouline has some great minimalist programs. Power to the people, enter the Kettlebell, simple and sinister.
    Minimalist equipment, minimalist strength routines (they aren’t bodybuilding though, more pure strength).
    I also like his and Dan John’s easy strength, try Dan John’s 40workouts program

    I also guess one could class starting strength and maybe stronglifts as minimalist, because they have minimal exercise selection, ‘only’ need a powercage/squatrack, barbell, weights and bench, relatively short workouts (esp. SS) only 3x a week, and simple programming. Madcow too once SS/SL is milked dry.

    This 6 day bro split is not very minimal, but hey, if you get it done in 20-30min. it could be made into a minimal routine.

  • Thanks for the tip on the grinder! I’ve been using a blade grinder for so long, unevenly ground coffee. I might have to snag up the grinder you were talking about.

  • I don’t have any ideas for coffee stuff per se cause I just don’t do coffee, I’m a little too high strung already without it! haha Either way, always here to support cause I love your stuff! Thanks for staying consistent, dude! See you in the next one!

  • I would not suggest two immersion methods of you are starting out. That would mean I wouldn’t suggest both a French press AND and aeropress. Aeropress can give you the same type of cup as a French press but without the mess.

    Also a plastic v60 runs below $10 USD usually.

    Suggestion for next coffee video: do a cupping/tasting with all the coffee nerds in your house. Each person takes notes of flavors an compare them at the end.

  • As you said you wanted to make some sustainable swaps I thought I would let you know that microfiber cloths aren’t good for the environment. They contain small plastic particles that get into the water when you wash/rinse them. I had no idea until recently so I thought you might not either. I’m still on the hunt for a good option!

  • Hey Matt, I just arrived in your channel(very good indeed).Did you already put a link or talk about where do you buy the t-shirts you wear? If you didn’t, please…

  • How do you recommend folks intermittent fast on different schedule? Like I work in the evenings (roughly 4pm-midnight). Do you recommend eating and working out in the day and fasting while at work? Thanks and great content!

  • Hi, new subscriber here, i watched nearly all of your videos in last 3 days, or ou them in my playlist to watch them over next few days. I love them all, i love minimalism, live in a very small flat so its beneficial for me. You inspire me alot

  • I’m considering whether to get the V60 or the Aeropress. I will be drinking alone the majority of the time, but the V60 seems to be a more pleasurable experience.
