#53: Addressing Joint or Muscular Pain & Elliot Hulse's Meditation Camp

11/27/2018
More
Muscular, tendon or joint pain can be so restrictive and uncomfortable, and can often lead us to believing we are ageing and/or broken. That it’s a fact of life that needs accepting, or something like surgery is needed. However, a huge percentage of body pain is reversible, and is a message that there is some dysfunction or imbalance in the body that needs addressing. Work out the root cause, do some corrective strength and mobility work, and much more often than expected, you can return to...

When’s the last time you've asked for really honest and raw feedback, from someone who knows you well? About your strengths, your weaknesses, and the things they don’t like so much?

10/30/2018
More
She’s back again, after popular demand! Michelle Katasi joins this podcast to have an open an honest discussion about her experience of recently going on a ‘Bulk’ - a mild calorie surplus whilst progressively overloading with Weight Training. It’s a controversial approach that is met with huge initial resistance, as the mere idea of purposely eating more calories than you need for a woman goes against all the media and social conditioning related to having a ‘good' body. However, there...

Sure, losing weight and achieving the best body you deserve has a lot to do with your emotional and logical commitment to the goal and process, through sheer determination, willpower and grit. That said, too often in the fitness and food industry, the idea of food addiction is dismissed as a lazy excuse and lack of willpower. From personal experience, I disagree. Food Addiction is a real thing, and needs to be addressed as part of a plan to losing and managing bodyweight. This discussion...

#41: Truth About Getting 'Rock Hard Six-Pack' Abs & Bryn Getting A Puppy

9/18/2018
More
We’ve all seen and probably succumb to those 'Rock Hard Abs' and 'Get A Six Pack’ adverts during our lifetimes - those marketers know how to get guys to act and spend money! Abs are the definition of sexiness and good health in modern times, and it’s universally considered by men that abs are what women want. It’s funny that what men think women want and what women find attractive is usually quite different… 🤣 But let’s be clear, Abs are here to stay as part of societies image of health,...

#37: Training Considerations for 'Older' Gym-Goers - Bryn's PT Observations & Recommendations

8/28/2018
More
Steve’s 37 and Bryn is 29. Neither are spring chickens, but we still feel like youth is on our side. In part this comes from the actions we take towards health, nutrition and strength, and in part our assumptions of what getting older should ‘feel’ and ‘look’ like. And given Bryn’s PT practice works with a reasonable volume of ‘older’, say 40-80 years old, we thought it would make for a good episode to discuss the observational and recommendation differences between a young person and...

That said, there is a place for Supplementation, to fill in the nutritional gaps in your diet, and act as an insurance policy that helps have all your bases covered. Moreover, there are some...
