    Episode 133: Phoenix Lifting Camp Debrief

    Ever find yourself in a fitness rut, where the weights don't excite you, and the treadmill feels like a road to nowhere? We're just back from Phoenix and Cleveland, buzzing with stories about crushing limits and the magic of community in fitness. Picture a place where a simple change in grip unleashes unexpected strength and where first-time powerlifters find their tribe. Our episode unearths the vibrancy of togetherness that we've experienced, akin to the family-centric DerbyCon days, and the life-altering personal growth tales that remind us why we started this journey.

    We've all had sessions where the gym feels like a second home, and the people there become family. That's the energy we brought back to share with you. We talk about the infectious buzz from a workout so intense it could only be compared to having a personal coach pushing you. And when Diamond Dallas Page walks into the room, you know the day's about to get even better. Our conversation navigates through those "five more" moments that redefine potential, and a hike that tested our fortitude, mirroring the relentless pursuit needed not just in the gym but in the very essence of life. Join us to relive these extraordinary encounters and to ignite your own fire for fitness.

    Episode 132: The Art of Tailoring Your Workout for Personal Success

    Picture this: A week away from the grind, packed with fitness feats and family time. That's where you'll find me, Dave Kennedy, your guide through the latest episode of the Heffing Hill podcast. As I catch my breath from a whirlwind holiday, I'm excited to bring you tales of last-minute recording dashes, gym triumphs, and what it really means to customize your fitness journey like you're gearing up a character in your favorite RPG.

    Have you ever considered the sheer versatility of our bodies and how fitness isn't a cookie-cutter pursuit? This episode is a candid foray into the world of personalized fitness goals, where I debunk myths (ladies, you won't Hulk out by accident) and share my own quest for strength over stamina. We navigate through the unique objectives that drive us into the gym, whether it's the yearning for a chiseled look or the need to outpace the competition. Alongside the narrative of my own evolving fitness aspirations, you'll hear the communal heartbeat of those striving side by side, pushing limits and celebrating the muscle burn that tells us we're alive.

    Rounding off, I delve into the intricacies of physical stress, its role in our longevity, and the supplements that support our journey towards health. While admitting this episode's brevity, I promise that what it lacks in length, it makes up for in substance and heart. Plus, I've got some gripping news up my sleeve for our next meet-up. So, pump up the volume and join the Heffing Hill community's vibrant discussion on shaping our bodies and lives.

A must listen

Absolutely love the pod. It’s seriously changed my life for the better. 💪

Ashleyoftheriver ,

Some good info but biased

They claim to use scientific studies, but disparage certain things based on their personal experience rather than scientific studies. An example is their mission to dissuade anyone into following a vegetarian diet based on one hosts personal experience. Studies show a healthy (sounds like host did not have this) vegetarian or vegan diet can promote what they are aspiring to including the large amount of protein they insist on, but it seems it is not masculine enough for these guys or something. It makes me doubt other things they say and i feel the need to double check everything else they say. Too much work for me, so I prefer to spend my time getting the info more efficiently elsewhere.

Great start

These two are off to a great start. Can’t wait to see where they go. 5 stars.

After further listening, a lot of great actionable info to implement in both workouts and nutrition. Thank you
