The Body of Knowledge is a serialized podcast featuring stories from the intersection of science and fitness. Each story is born in a conversation about quality of life and incubates until it can grow into actionable insight. The show is hosted by former comedian and lifelong human performance coach, Kenny Kane and Professor of Exercise Physiology at CSUF, Andy Galpin. The show is produced in volumes and the chapters of each volume are released weekly.
Where do you spend your time and energy? We describe the snapshot and how we use it to be honest with ourselves about where the chips fall.
Kenny drops one of his favorite models for growth - the four quadrants. We also dive deep into how to use them for just about anybody.
Andy hits us with what's new in the science of muscle growth. Spoiler alert - we were all wrong about a few things...
The Five (Voltron) Tenants
Kenny lays out the five tenants of coaching at Oak Park - purpose, growth, connection, contribution, and value.
Invest vs Consume
Are you investing in your growth or consuming physical experiences? We break it down and help you distinguish between the two.
Use Your Brain
Kicking off season 3 with a conversation about the growth of science and technology.
The thinking person’s fitness podcast.
If you are looking for the best method to get bigger biceps, look good with your shirt off to get more Instagram followers, this is NOT your podcast. But if you are interested in expanding your learning abilities and your understanding of why you do the things you do in the health and fitness industry, you will make a fine choice listening to this podcast.
What a great podcast! I got value out of the entire series. The guests were great and the hosts managed to talk about quite complex processes in an easy to understand manner. Looking forward to Volume 2!
Entertaining and informative
I loved the whole series and got value out of every episode.
Episode 5 'Biases collide' was my favourite. In my life it has been my biases and my unwillingness to budge from a particular belief that has definitely held me back from progressing in all aspects of my life not just physical training. So when I heard the story of how Dr Karpovich changed his thinking on strength training when shown information that contradicted his beliefs, it definitely resonated with me.
I'm looking forward to season two. Thanks to Kenny Kane, Andy Galpin and Josh Embree (and the guests, wives and others) for a fantastic series of podcasts.
