#121: Minimalist Training and Weight Loss Advice (and also, we go DEEP)

Sharing personal experiences is a powerful way to communicate: it’s never something we’ve shied away from on this show. In today’s episode, we hit this idea from a different light, using Jack Kornfield’s book “A Path with Heart” as a reference point. That serves as the deep-thinking counterbalance to the sensible strength training and weight loss advice we get into later in the show (which is light and “practical”).

#120: Evolve

… and other practical advice for training this winter. A lot happened in the past few weeks: we try to make sense of it all, and talk about our favorite topic: mindfulness. However, this time, we do so with the theme being evolution; from your training, to your mind, and the way you live your life.

#117: The Age of Strength and Conditioning Enlightenment

We’re back this week with two new episodes and the first show of 2016 (coming at the end of the week!).

In this episode, recorded mid-December 2015, we discuss real life self defense principles & Conor McGregor’s victory, which eventually leads into a discussion on the diversification of strength and conditioning in sports, and life in general. From the forward thinking coaches out there to highly trained experts in breathing, movement and more, there’s a valuable diversity- now more than ever- in what’s available to you to be your healthiest best self. Tune in as we dissect it.

#116: Some Good Musings

We are on a mini hiatus (continuing education trips across the globe for Mark, while Froy is busy training and nurturing a successful, growing business), but we never want to leave you hanging! So, flex your “Netflix muscle” and enjoy an onslaught of new episodes… all at once! Space em’ out or binge on them: the choice is yours.

We recorded this episode in Froy’s apartment, originally in September ’15, on a whim. I can’t tell you exactly what the idea was, but it turned into an interesting discussion on health journalism, balance and more.

#115: Participation Trophies…

We are on a mini hiatus (continuing education trips across the globe for Mark, while Froy is busy training and nurturing a successful, growing business), but we never want to leave you hanging! So, flex your “Netflix muscle” and enjoy an onslaught of new episodes… all at once! Space em’ out or binge on them: the choice is yours.

On this episode (originally recorded in late August ’15), our discussion was sparked (and of course, not strictly stuck to) Pittsburgh Steelers’ linebacker James Harrison claiming he took his son’s participation trophies and gave them back, claiming you don’t need deserve trophies you didn’t earn. Beyond that, the conversation just flows… well… we hope!
