EP. 64 - UNCOMMON SENSE - 3 THINGS YOU'RE DOING WRONG THAT YOU THINK ARE RIGHT.

ACADEMY NUTRITIONIST NATHALIE NIDDAM WANTS US EATING ALL THINGS IN MODERATION


The most frustrating thing is doing something you think is working, but in fact is not. We may be spending  time, energy & money to fix problems only to be causing more. 

This episode is devoted to 3 little things that many people do to be healthier, but may in fact may take us in the other direction. 

Plus Nat & Dhani get into an interesting discussion on the politics of the  Canada Food Guide and how government is not always acting in the interests of your health.

REAL PROTEIN

NOT ALL COWS ARE FED GRASS, AND NOT ALL PROTEIN IS THE SAME


More and more of us are beginning to take a closer look at what we put in our bodies, this is a good thing. However, If you eat animal products you should also seriously consider what the animals are putting in their bodies.

EP. 63 - THE SPEED PROJECT - LIVE FROM LA TO VEGAS

NOT A RUN IN THE PARK

I didn't plan on releasing this podcast...

I was texting my good buddy Mike Krupica, along some other friends, to wish them luck on an amazing journey. It then occurred to me that we should DEFINITELY do a podcast on this whole thing.

Mike and some other members of the Parkdale Roadrunners and our Academy Community are only hours away from a truly EPIC run that will test them in every way imaginable. 

I caught Mike just before the start of the race to see where his head was at and how he plans to deal with the challenges ahead. We cover all of that plus much much more.

HAND CARE!

ACADEMY COACH EMILY DELPERO SHARES SOME WISDOM


That really annoying feeling when - coming down off the pull-up bar or setting down the kettle/bar bell – you look at your palm to find a chunk of it missing. An angry red patch of new skin laid bare to the world.

A tear! And you know you are doomed to at least one night of disrupted sleep due to the hand-throbbies, a few days of gingerly showering +/- washing dishes,  and modifying your training (let alone keeping your palms stubbornly facing downwards so no  non-gym-goer thinks you have flesh eating disease. Who has TIME for that?
