    Ep 138 // Challenging Movement & Understanding Pain With Neuroscience - Dr Cobb from Z Health

    Ep 138 // Challenging Movement & Understanding Pain With Neuroscience - Dr Cobb from Z Health

    What is pain and why it might not actually be an injury
    .
    Respecting the complexity of the human body and trying to understand how it all links together is something that we are passionate about and always gets us excited. When you look deeper into the understanding movement, how the different systems of the human body interact and understanding pain then you'll inevitably come across the complex but fascinating world of neuroscience.
    .
    Dr Cobb from Z Health specialises in this area of neuroscience looking at how everything in the body is linked to the brain and therefore how the brain can affect every area of the body. Having been on the Z Health educational course ourselves we were delight to have Dr Cobb on the podcast to share his amazing (and often challenging insights) with you.
    .
    At the heart of it all is finding the route cause of a problem, which areas of the brain, which systems of the body do we need to address for managing things like pain, movement quality, changing mobility and ranges of motion, and all this really resonates with us.
    .
    In the podcast we cover some exciting topics like immediate changes in range of motion at joint (shoulder joint was the example Dr Cobb took us through) by playing with the interaction of flexor and extensor tone dictated by the brain by using simple eye drills, tongue movements and much more - you have to listen and follow along the instructions!

    Ep 137 // 'Give Yourself No Choice' Mindset with Vinny Shoreman

    Ep 137 // 'Give Yourself No Choice' Mindset with Vinny Shoreman

    This week on the podcast we are talking all about managing your mindset with Vinny Shoreman mindset coach, trained in NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming). Vinny has a slightly different approach to managing peoples mindset that really resonated with us and summed up perfectly with his mantra of "Give yourself no choice!"
    .
    Vinny has helped many sports men and women manage their mindset and achieve far more than they ever thought possible, specialising with combat sport like boxing and MMA (mixed martial arts). You all know how much we believe in redefining your impossible and always want to help you achieve that - well we think Vinny has a perspective on mindset that will certainly help lots of you along your mindset journey.
    .
    You might find it challenging but all the best mindset coaches always do challenge you!

    Positive Podcast 17 // Are you HAPPY with Training?

    Positive Podcast 17 // Are you HAPPY with Training?

    At the School of calisthenics we believe that Calisthenics can be used as a vehicle to help make people happy. The questions I'm posing today and exploring in this podcast is, Are you happy in your training? Are you content
    .
    This comes off the back of a personal mindset challenge, which to be honest I'm still chewing over and working through, exploring the relationship between contentment, complacency and happiness.
    .
    I really hope this sparks positive thoughts and conversations between us all and drives us all towards positive relationships with training and ultimately brings us happiness.

    Ep 136 // Do Aesthetic Matter?

    Ep 136 // Do Aesthetic Matter?

    At the School of Calisthenics, we believe that it's more important what you can do with your body than how it looks. However, we understand that everyone still likes to look good, because often looking good and being happy with how you look is one of the ingredients to you actually feeling happy.
    .
    The question therefore: 'Do aesthetics matter'?... and the topic we're talking about in this week's podcast. We discuss the mental struggle between wanting to be happy and comfortable with how we look without it being our sole purpose and focus of our training. It's something that we all battle with and both Tim and Jacko talk from the heart in this episode of how it has and still does affect them.
    .
    We hope this episode is an encouragement to try and look at this side of training in a positive light in reference to your self-image and overall mental health. The encouragement is to try and help move the needle of the wider fitness world to not being so focused on how we look.We'd love you to share this episode with any friends or family that you think would benefit from hearing these positive messages about self-image and training for aesthetics.

These guys put out so much free and awesome content. I always learn something each listen but in a relaxed chat format never feels like a lecture. I pretty much agree with everything Tim and Jacko say about training, fitness, and health- even how they have their favourite coffee!

So motivational and easy listening.

When I’m struggling to find motivationI listen to an episode to get keen for a workout.

Are you breathing correctly.

Such an insightful listen, something I’ve been trying for a little while but to hear it from Patrick was top.
Try and be a better human.
