    Mayhem Media – Keeping Things Fun

    Mayhem Media – Keeping Things Fun

    This week, I’m joined by some of the biggest characters of the sport, Mikkel and Steffen, aka Mayhem Media. These guys have been following the downhill circus for a number of years, taking awesome photos, consuming a few beers along the way, and generally taking a good times approach to watching world cup racing. We sat down to find out more about where Mayhem Media came from, and believe me, these guys have got some great stories, including smuggling special supplies in to hospital for the one and only Josh Bryceland. These guys know how to enjoy themselves, so hit play and listen to this episode with Mayhem Media.

    How to Shred Until You’re 70 (And Beyond)

    How to Shred Until You’re 70 (And Beyond)

    This week I’m joined by Ben from The Strength Factory to find out what you can be doing now to give yourself the best possible chance of being able to shred when you’re 70. Ben talks about the ‘physical pension’ and his views on the seven pension pots that you need to be paying into on a regular basis, posture, mobility, movement & balance, play, strength & power, aerobic/cardiovascular fitness and finally, sleep, nutrition & wellness. We chat through what it takes to set yourself up well for later life, so this is well worth a listen if you want to be a healthy older human.







    The video which we mention in the episode, which shows some of the key things we talk about in the episode is here, and there are loads of other great free video resources on the Strength Factory YouTube channel here. Ben can also be found on Instagram @strengthfactory_coach
