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. Up first is an episode recorded back in August, but never quite saw the light of day til now. It’s one of our favorite topics to ponder: the future of fitness. Enjoy!
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).
Scott Burr is an interesting guy. He’s holds a black belt in multiple martial arts, is a former MMA fighter, a strength coach, published fiction author, and has the distinction of being Steve Maxwell’s first and only black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Mark and Scott recently took part in Jim Smith and Steve Maxwell’s recent videos, 3D Strength & Real Resets and sat down to do this podcast in a hotel in Elmira, NY. The two talk about what it’s like to come of age and have multiple interests in front of you, but no real path; strength and conditioning, and of course, jiu jitsu and MMA. Check it out!
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.
Mark & Froy talk about recent musings and observations on nutrition and lifestyle habits in their own lives, the lives of those they’ve come in contact with, and more.
What’s the Braverman test? A short spoiler alert: it’s easy to take and it may give you some insight into your health that you’re not even considering.
