Episode 32: Nutrition Myths Debunked: Vindication for Your Host

October 24, 2014
00:0000:00

All hail science! This episode covers an article I read on examine.com about 10 common nutrition myths. Regular listeners to my show will not be surprised at some of the myths busted. I take pride in being a voice of reason. A voice that shouts one thing while everyone else shouts something else. 


So we can call this the vindication podcast, if you want to. 

In all seriousness, this subject is so important I even wrote a blog about it. Here is the link to the blog and the examine.com article, http://mfactorfitnessandnutrition.com/post-145-10-food-myths-debunked/

Episode 31: Popping Shoulders, Painful Knees and the Lone Wanderer Returns

October 21, 2014
00:0000:00

Ah yes, episode 31 continues in the same serious ways of the last episode. This time we are going to talk about how to fix your popping shoulder and your painful knees.


Common advice is just not to do the exercises that hurt but as we all know, that is stupid advice.

Fix the way you do the exercises and the pain will disappear and I am going to show you how.

Also, an update on my friend that spend hours aimlessly walking the streets of Parker. Has she lost weight? Is she in better shape? Just who is this lone wanderer.

You know I can't tell you here, you are just going to have to listen.

Episode 30: Shoulder and Elbow Pain Demystified

October 14, 2014
00:0000:00

Wow, after a 2 episode tangent we get back to business here on episode 30. Everybody is going to tweak their shoulder or elbow at some point. Don't think your special because it will get you too.

So what in the heck causes it and how do you rehab it?

 I get into the concepts of:

  • Muscle Imbalances
  • How the shoulders affect upper back tightness.
  • How upper back tightness affect shoulder pain.
  • Why the whole upper body is connected.
  • How wrist position affects elbow pain.
  • The concept of a tight upper back while lifting.
  • The "Down and Back" cue for shoulders.

There is a bunch of good stuff in here. I try not to get too technical because I need you to understand the idea of what is going on here first. Once you understand what is going on you don't need a Doctor you just need some common sense.

Episode 29: Fitness Egomaniacs, Mummy Kicks and a Truly Epic Self-Destruct of the Week

October 8, 2014
00:0000:00

So why do I get so worked up about so called "gurus" like Jillian Michaels?

In this episode I attempt to answer that burning question. This one is for all the people that blew up their knees with Tae Bo, wrecked their lower backs with Insanity and think P90x ought to be have a sequel.

In the beginning there where people with good intentions such as Kathy Smith, Sharon Mann, Tamillee Webb and others who created DVD's (VHS) programs that actually helped people. Then it turned into a peeing contest where the new generation of instructors had to out-do the previous ones by making the workouts more intense and  more on the edge to capture the interest of the public.

There is a difference between someone who studies fitness and tries to make the world a little better and those fitness "celebrities" that build mansions off the destroyed knees and backs of the people who bought their DVD's.

They know the untrained general public can't handle plyometrics and high volume squats because:

1. They are untrained and have little to no cardio.

2. The form probably sucks and high volume movements with poor form grind away the joints and create lasting joint issues.

Don't believe me? 3 rounds of mummy kicks for you! Ha ha...Mummy kicks.

Looking at my online training competitors I stumble across a couple video gems for my self-destruct of the week. Too bad you can only hear the audio. I would disclose the website but like mummies and curses it is much better to leave it alone and walk away. Walk away doing mummy kicks? Ha Ha mummy kicks!

Episode 28: Does Jillian Michaels Work out to her Own DVD’S and other intriguing questions

October 7, 2014
00:0000:00

This Episode really started with good intentions. No negativity just positive vibrations.

My plan was to fill this podcast up with cool fitness tidbits but sometimes even the best of us lose their way.

In particular I start out talking about a weekend trip to Estes Park that really doesn't go anywhere. Then I start on a tangent with an article I found in US magazine about the "Celebrity fitness Guru" Jillian Michaels.


Things head south from there as I try and figure out what the hell she is talking about. After I abandon ship on that topic I hastily throw out a couple fitness tidbits to try and salvage the podcast.

Episode 27: A Hero’s Journey Part 2

October 1, 2014

Episode 27: A Hero's Journey Part 2

Here is part 2 of a Hero's journey. We finish up the discussion.

The idea is basically this: Stuff happens to you all the time. If you can put it in context then you can gain some control over it. If you don't, then it can become overwhelming. 

In other words, if you have a problem in your life, turn it into an adventure. See the events as tests and do you best to overcome them. All in all I think this was a pretty good podcast. There are a number of articles on Joseph Campbell, Mine certainly is not the first.

We end with another short discussion about lab testing and how an unscrupulous supplement company (if any exist ha ha) could use bad science to make their products look good.
