#73: Life With Diabetes - How to Manage & Thrive, with Phil Graham

#73: Life With Diabetes - How to Manage & Thrive, with Phil Graham

April 16, 2019

Diabetes is the second most prevalent health condition globally, and continues to surge at epidemic proportions. Considered a modern lifestyle disease, it’s worth us all getting grounded on what Diabetes is, in the hope to prevent our health unknowingly declining, or to spot and successfully manage the condition. 

So whilst you may not be clinically diagnosed with Type 2 or Type 1 Diabetes, there’s a very good chance that people you know will have the condition, and with naivety could become diabetic yourself.

To tackle this critical topic, we managed to pin down the world renowned leader in this field - Phil Graham. In spite of of having the autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes condition, Phil has thrived across all areas of his life.

Through his obsession to manage his potentially fatal condition, Phil has not been defined by Diabetes. Instead, he became a Mr Universe bodybuilder, a coach, an author and a successful fitness business entrepreneur. Phil authored the leading book in its category - Diabetic Muscle & Fitness Guide, and is invited to speak all over the world on the topic of Diabetes and managing fitness businesses.

 

In this short but information packed interview, we discuss:

1️⃣ Phil’s childhoodand being diagnosed as Type 1 Diabetic in his teens

2️⃣ Phil’s obsession with thrivingin spite of Diabetes - nutrition, lifestyle, exercise and mindset

3️⃣ Why lifting? Getting strong when his health was weak...

4️⃣ Phil’s fitness & health career highlights, in purest of being able to help himself

5️⃣ The signs and symptomsof Type 1 & Type 2 Diabetes

6️⃣ What is Diabetes at a physiologically level?- describing the role and impact of Insulin and Blood Glucose

7️⃣ The differences between Type 1, Type 2 Diabetes & pre-Diabetes- including likely causes

8️⃣ The Causes of Diabetes, Corrective Actionsand type-specific recommendations

9️⃣ Your most chaotic events are your best mentors...

🔟 The role of scientific discoveryin the fight against the Diabetes epidemic

#72: Falling off The WAGON! with Bryn Jenkins

#72: Falling off The WAGON! with Bryn Jenkins

April 9, 2019

FALLING OFF THE WAGON - Yeah… its a universally understood term that we all recognise and can relate to. Basically, it’s time when we F up and the plan has gone to pot. We even erase the very existence of the plan and dig our heads in the sand. 

It’s a very real thing. What separates achievers from non-achievers is their relationship with the wagon. In spite of the derailments, they crack on. In spite of the blips, they execute against their hopes, dreams and goals.

But here’s an interesting thought. What about if the very language of ‘Falling Off The Wagon’ is causing us to reach for the exit door as soon as things don’t go 100% to plan? What about the idea of abandoning the Wagon concept completely?

So, whether it's the wagon of weight loss, exercise, business, self development or being a caring person, I’m hopeful you will be able to relate to this conversation and identify behaviours in yourselves or those you know. We blend personal anecdotes, personal struggles with experience from our professions and some concepts and tools to get after long term goals in a more sustainable and assured fashion.

 

Say it with me… THERE’S NO F*@#ING WAGON! 😉

 

Here’s how it goes down: 

1️⃣ Full Chimp Brain Panic! - We kick things off with Bryn’s (snd Steve’s) recent experiences of being hijacked by our chimp brains. Fascinating

2️⃣ Bryn’s observations from Personal Training - Does anyone ever stay ‘on the wagon’ and how Bryn can spot those who will likely give up quickly

3️⃣ Defining The Wagon & How It Manifests - Drawing on personal and observational experiences of what it means to fall off the wagon

4️⃣ The Angle of Derailment and Time Elapsed - Taking the analogy literally and exploring how to look at things differently

5️⃣ The most common reasons for Falling Off The Wagon and Staying Off - How we justify inaction. Common thought processes and mistakes

6️⃣ Widening the Lens, Flexibility & Imperfection - These plus other concepts that help reframe bad days and stay committed to your WHY

7️⃣ Keys to Steve’s 2y training and nutrition consistency - How has Steve stayed so committed to the cause whilst still being a big foodie?

8️⃣ Abandon the Wagon all together - The idea of banishing this term. Life is not binary. Accept and plan for the ebb and flow. Learn and adjust...

9️⃣ Tools to withstand the pressure to throw in the towel - We share some practical tools and perspectives that manage our state and reframe failure

#70: Making Your Work-life Healthier with Alex Hind (GoSweat CEO)

March 26, 2019

Mental health and wellbeing is becoming a hot topic globally, as we grapple with the consequences of stress-inducing lifestyles, increasingly demanding jobs and lack of mental down time.

And yes, your health and wellness is on you to own, but employers and market makers have a big role to play in how they shape societal norms and pressures. 

So, on a consistent thread of self-optimisation, we focus this episode on the employer, and how prioritising wellness and wellbeing could have a profound impact to their companies performance. After all, happy and healthy employees produce better work, care more for their peers, and stay longer.

To bring this conversation to life, Steve talks with Alex Hind, the CEO of GoSweat. Alex is a young British entrepreneur on a mission to improve the individuals wellbeing. GoSweat offers employers a buffet-style marketplace of 1000’s of fitness activities, all available through their website, enabling organisations to gift a huge choice of physical activities to their valued staff. I pretty amazing idea - one that is really resonating with people.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ Getting to know Alex Hind- from a sport-obsessed childhood to the realities of a pressured career where fitness had to drop

2️⃣ The gap in the market- From Alex’s personal experience, the need for a fitness marketplace became apparent

3️⃣ Getting to know GoSweat- The mission, the service today and the fitness freedom the service creates

4️⃣ Are Employers doing enoughfor their staff's wellbeing?

5️⃣ The ROI struggles- bottom-up justification of increased Wellbeing investments in organisations 

6️⃣ Employees expect more- How culture and care are now important factors for new employees

7️⃣ Innovative incentives and encouragement- How leading companies are positively starting to shift their workplace wellbeing

8️⃣ Wellbeing = Better Productivity- The growing connection between Wellbeing and Company Performance , and how change needs to start from the top down

9️⃣ Steve’s burning the candle from both ends - Steve’s personal realisation of how much potential has been missed in his career, due to de-prioritising wellness

🔟 BONUS - How Alex sank his car...

#69: Power of Relationships, Your Ego & Gratitude (with Bryn Jenkins)

#69: Power of Relationships, Your Ego & Gratitude (with Bryn Jenkins)

March 19, 2019

Off the back of reading Game Changers by Dave Asprey, we’ve been noodling over the top life priorities that came from interviewing 450 successful leaders on Bulletproof Radio.

Perhaps surprisingly, the aggregated data suggested the Top Priorities for life success were (1) Nutrition, (2) Relationships, (3) Self-Awareness, (4) Exercise and (5) Sleep. 100% aligned with our priorities at AdapNation, and great to see the fundamentals are considered the most impactful to success.

 

That said, we’ve not covered Relationships in much detail on the podcast. The value of building up a real network and nurturing your relationships for overall satisfaction, opportunity creation and adding value. Moreover, what gets in our way of developing and nurturing valuable relationships?

So, this episode navigates Relationships, Our Ego and Gratitude. Committing to mastering these areas of your life can have a profound impact on the quality of your life. And let’s face it, we are the dominant species on the planet because we are social animals, and we have self-awareness. Great discussion, and as always, hopefully a lot that you can relate and identify with. 

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ Value of Relationships & Building Your Network + 6 top tips

2️⃣ Ego - is it our friend or foe? What is our ego, how can it help + 4 top tips

3️⃣ The Power of Gratitude - how gratefulness leads to more success + 5 top tips

#66: The Carnivore Diet - Broadening the Discussion with Dr. Shawn Baker

#66: The Carnivore Diet - Broadening the Discussion with Dr. Shawn Baker

February 26, 2019

Off the back of #Veganuary, it’s important to keep the discussion of world-wide health, personal performance and sustainability going. 

To do that we’ve invited Dr. Shawn Baker on to the podcast to talk about the Carnivore diet - a seemingly opposed diet that seeks to serve a very similar purpose...

Interestingly, the Vegan movement is not the only lens through which to look at the problems we face. In actual fact, the moral, ethical and emotionally charged dogma that comes with much of the current vegan message is perhaps preventing us from seeing the bigger picture.

Due to the ideology of Veganisim, it has the opportunity to alienate through judgement, remove free choice, and even fuel the problems we have around nutrition and sustainability. We should be looking to have inclusive discussion and seek collaborative solutions vs dividing populations based on moral standing.

 

So, in the spirit of having an open mind and broadening the conversation, this podcast explores the Carnivore diet, and why Dr. Shawn Baker and many others around the world have taken to this extreme diet. It also attempts to correct some misconceptions of meat eating, as well as look at the problems we face around nutrition and sustainability from a different perspective. 

This is a fascinating discussion that quite frankly needs to be had. As opposed to Vegans vs Meat eaters, this discussion highlights where we really need to be focussing, and it could be the start for collaborative and productive dialog regarding planet and human health.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ The science- The science (or the lack thereof), historical observations and disease-claims of a meat-dominant diet

2️⃣ From restriction to liberation- how a meat-only diet is positively impacting 1000’s of people

3️⃣ Some raw Veg truth- Things to consider with a plant-only diet that don’t often fat spoken about

4️⃣ The elephant in the room- and it’s not Vegetables or Meat.

5️⃣ RDA’s & guidance - The fundamental issues with blanket diet, nutrition and blood value recommendations

6️⃣ A diet tool - The Carnivore diet used as a elimination transitional tool, and Carnivore Adjacent diet

7️⃣ Why Carnivore?- Shawn’s reasons to go from normal, vegetarian, paleo, Keto and then then Carnivore diet

8️⃣ Debunking - Addressing Ageing and Cancer concerns with Protein, and the protein deficient aged population

9️⃣ Big Food Conspiracy- The corporate conspiracy that the Vegan movement is fuelling - creating more waste, choice and emissions...

🔟 Livestock Farming Practices - Addressing the misconceptions about waste, emissions, malpractice and inhumane treatment within the Livestock industry

*️⃣ Locked in Forever?- Does Shawn feel imprisoned by the Carnivore diet socially and physiologically?

#65: Optimise for Your Neurotype with Christian Thibaudeau

#65: Optimise for Your Neurotype with Christian Thibaudeau

February 19, 2019

Just wow! Be prepared to have you mind blown several times in this podcast, as we hear from the incredible Christian Thibaudeau on understanding who we are based on our Neurotype.

Christian has been coaching elite athletes across 28 different sports and general population face to face and online fro over 20 years. With over 600+ articles on T-Nation, three best selling strength and conditioning books and a huge video and article presence all over the internet, Christian is one of the top leaders globally in his field, and comes with a unique blend of experience, capability and scientific smarts. 

 

The world of Neurotyping is pretty fascinating. Where psychometric assessments and psycho analysis focusses on who you are based on your past and how you show up today, Neurotyping can describe WHY you are that way chemically, and can accurate describe your tendencies, personality, motivations and much more. 

It’s about about neurotransmitter dominance - or put another way which of the excitatory neurotransmitters are you the most sensitive to and which inhibitory neurotransmitters do you predominately produce to slow things down. I know this sounds geeky and far fetched, but by the end of this conversation you will understand yourself at a whole new level, as Christian blends chemistry with psychology, training and nutrition. 

You will be able to identify which Neurotype you are based on the personality descriptions Christian offers, and as a result will learn which type of training style you are innately motivated to the most and will recover from the fastest.

 

You might want to get a pen and paper at the ready for this one, and hover over the rewind button, as three is so much to take away from this chat that could change your outlook on your training, relationships and lifestyle forever.

 

Here’s what we cover:

1️⃣ Who is Christian and how he discovered Neurotype’s through trying to understand himself

2️⃣ What are key Neurotransmitters that drive behaviour

3️⃣ The idea behind Neuro Dominance - it’s all about sensitivity and production levels

4️⃣ The chemical differences between the 5 Neurotypes

5️⃣ How each of the Neurotypes show up in life - e.g. socially, performance, stress levels, training, nutrition, leadership

6️⃣ The Training preferences for 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B and 3 that will provide greatest motivation and fastest recovery

7️⃣ Christian on-the-fly identifying the Neurotype of Steve people close to him

8️⃣ Many anecdotes from Christian personally and a variety of his Athletes he has trained regarding their Neurotypes

9️⃣ How to incorporate training modalities that do not match you Neurotype preference successfully

 

Where to Learn More about Christian Thibaudeau and Neurotyping:

#64: Which should I do - Strength or Hypertrophy Training?

#64: Which should I do - Strength or Hypertrophy Training?

February 12, 2019

This is the kind of discussion and set of facts I wish heard many years ago, prior to even lifting my first set of weights.

There is so much confusion as it relates to the ‘best’ way to train in the gym to get bigger and stronger - part by design from the industry, and part because there are dogmatic folk who just believe in their method. 

So, this conversation attempts to lay some solid foundational knowledge, so you can understand the difference between true Strength Training vs Hypertrophy training, including the benefits, distinctions, similarities, use cases and downsides.

 

At the end of this Podcast, you’ll understand the most important thing - that resistance training has a spectrum of modalities that amplify certain benefits more than others, and deliberately working throughout that spectrum is how to keep making progress, year after year.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ Steve & Bryn’s progress and surprise benefits with their current Hypertrophy training blocks

2️⃣ Definition of Strength Training vs Hypertrophy Training

3️⃣ Body Adaptation & Training Benefits of each training style

4️⃣ Which Training style to choose (first/predominantly) based on 8 common Use Cases

5️⃣ The Circular Loop - Do you get Bigger by getting Stronger or do you get Stronger by getting Bigger?

6️⃣ The Personal Factors that will determine whether Strength vs Hypertrophy training is right currently

7️⃣ Should you consider mixing both styles within a single session?
