#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.

#118: How to REALLY Think About Making Change

We sit down solo and discuss a number of topics, but the running theme is how to really think about making important changes that will yield healthy results in your life. It’s not easy to implement always, but we try to make it painless. We also muse on how to make the office and workplace healthier in 2016

#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!

#113: Why Are There So Many Injuries in Sports?

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.

#112: Life is a Question and Love is the Answer

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).

#111: What is a Human Anyway?

We ponder where some of our collective mental and physical health problems or phenomenons come from in relation to how “foreign” they are to our animal/human body. Sounds deep, huh? It’s really not, but it’s an interesting, coffee-fueled conversation that gets into all types of topics from how we best learn movement to how physicality (or a lack thereof) could affect us down the line. Our insight may be surprise you.
