Podcast

I know, I know, another fitness podcast. But here it is anyway, a place for me to put out more free content from your questions, from discussions with clients on various topics and whatever else is bouncing around my highly caffeinated brain on the day I record the episodes.

Episode 16

This week we talk about protein needs, why you need it and where to get the best sources.

Do you need fasted cardio for better fat loss? And what it’s actually good for.

And why you need to forget about training for strength at the moment, and what you should be focussing on instead.

Episode 15

In this episode I have something a little different, instead of me chatting the whole episode, I got Calumn from CDFitnesscoaching to come on and chat (remotely, of course) about his approach and give his thoughts on a few topics. He gave some fantastic answers and I know you’ll get loads from this episode.

Episode 13

With fat loss, there is no going back to eating normally. Eating normally is what got you to the point of wanting to go on a fat loss diet in the first place. Instead, you need to learn the skills, knowledge and habits that allow you to build a new normal. A sustainable and enjoyable approach that gets you a great result and allows you to keep it.

Other topics covered this week include training for your age, and some tips on beating the six week lockdown slump!

After doing a couple of Instagram lives with a couple of PT friends, I chat about the common issues we/re seeing from clients and how we are trying to help with routine, motivation and more.

I also talk a bit about our tendency to overcomplicate things and how that puts a roadblock in our way, stopping us from making progress.

We are going through uncertain times, with a lot of things out of our control, you may be feeling that you are stuck or struggling with your diet, training and everything else.

Well, I have good news! You have more control than you think. In today’s episode I talk about what you do have control over, the dietary changes you may need to make, how to change your training and all the home-based workout ideas you can use to continue to make progress over the next few weeks.

The home workouts I am going to do over the coming weeks will be going out live on my IG and uploaded to facebook afterwards.
