We reflect on different ways we have evaluated, in our own lives, our levels of health, and also reflect on other ways of thinking about it in more general terms for you.
We share stories, framework and discuss how the mind may be the most important indicator of your success in sports, dieting, or really any accomplishment in life that involves physicality (and even those that don’t).
We field a lot of questions about diets, particularly the popularity of ketogenic (aka ketosis) and protein heavy diets, so we decided to revisit some of our experiences with specific diets (branded or scientifically based otherwise), with new and old insights. Then it goes… well wherever it goes. Download and let us know what you think!
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 discuss the framework of mental coaching for sport and the analytical part of sport: from the high levels to involving children. We also discuss ways we might bring physicality, in an inclusive way, back to elementary school-middle school aged kids. And of course, the convo kicks off with a little coffee talk (snobs…)
In what turns out to be two podcasts of musings over various subjects, we keep returning to the power of the mind and when it intersects with reality. What realities are too strong to overcome… if any?
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”).
