Following (and before) Conor McGregor’s loss at UFC 196, the entire “active” world came out with strong opinions on the idea of “movement coaches,” with hate and praise slung and thrown around at both ends of the spectrum. The bad part, though, was the misinformation spewed by many in the media, and we hope to set it straight. After all, we’ve been functional movement advocates for years… Find out what we think and what our definition is, and what it means for you.
We also get into an interesting digression on what art can tell us about fitness? We should have posted this a few weeks ago, considering it was recorded the day after the Super Bowl, BUT, a good discussion nonetheless!
… 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.
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.
This podcast started as an idea to muse on why there are so many injuries occurring in professional sports in recent years (or the seeming increase of injuries in recent years). It turned into that and much more: from a discussion on the power of coaching and philosophy when it comes to injuries, to exercises in mindfulness, and a sad, but real truth many may not want to hear.
How’s that for a title? The past 7 days have seen some really strange, sad, tragic, and surprising events. From the tragic acts of terror in Paris, to Ronda Rousey losing in shocking fashion to Holly Holm in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight division, there is a strange pattern that emerges, but something that should give everyone hope. We explore (and try to relate it to strength and conditioning).
Steve returns to Functional Meatheads to talk with us about world travel and how cultures and people live their “healthy” lives differently across the globe, jiu-jitsu, eating habits, poor mental accountability, fashion, and much more. It was a great conversation and if you enjoyed our first one with Steve, you’ll love this one. Recorded on location in the Lower East Side, NYC, NY.
