Defying All Odds With Conner Alexander #102
A few months ago I was shared a story of the curveball thrown to a young man Conner Alexander.
From nearly dying in a car accident that took the life of one of his best friends, to being told he was unlikely to walk again. When I learnt of his story he was back walking, paddling around on a stand up paddleboard and defying all odds. I reached out to this incredible young man to try and learn more about his story and help share it with the world.
What I learnt in this interview was not only has Conner defied all the odds to be here right now but he truly defines the word resilience. Make sure to listen in and learn from his incredible story
The Future of The Fitness Industry Post Covid #101
After a short pause, the podcast is back!
We went through a very quick turn around into a new gym but we're back up and running in our new home. This episode Nath and I caught up to talk about what we feel COVID taught us about the fitness industry and the future we see ahead for the microgym scene.
Lessons From Over 60 Years Of Lifting With Max Bristow
The Newstrength Way just hit Episode 100. Thankyou all for listening and your feedback throughout our first 100 episodes.
Today we welcome Max Bristow to the podcast to share his story, Max has been lifting since back in the 1950's and has had a wealth of experience in multiple disciplines including powerlifting, weightlifting and bodybuilding.
At 76 years old Max has also influenced many of the great lifters to have come out of the hunter region and is very well respected for the hard work he has put into the growth of strength sports in this country.
Max was kind enough to welcome me into his home gym to share his story and as a fanatic of strength culture it was an absolute honour to get to meet and talk with a man with his experience.
The Mindset To Become A Champion with Mell Green
This week we welcome to the podcast Mell Green, Mell has won the Australian Powerlifting Union National title along with breaking the deadlift record in both Powerlifting and Strongman in her weight class.
We talk about her story of finding lifting only a relatively short time ago into falling in love with it and the people in the sport.
Get in Shape in 12 Weeks or 12 Months?
If you could get in shape in 12 weeks but put the weight back on afterwards or do it in 12 months and never have to do it again which would you choose?
Depending on these, your going to choose different diets, different training, different lifestyles.
These choices are all fine as long as you know what those choices feed...
If you want to keep the weight off then choosing fad diets and hours of cardio probably isn't the right choice
But if you only care about the photo at the end of the diet then thats cool too.
