    Understanding your Epigenetics (part 2)

    Understanding your Epigenetics (part 2)

    As we learnt from our discussion in Part 1 (Episode #133), epigenetics can interact with your DNA and genes in order to activate & deactivate your blueprint. Even though your DNA is hardwired, the cell's characteristics & function can change based around your epigenetics.
    In part 2 we get practical! Brodie is joined once again by Dr Cam McDonald who is a lecturer, dietician & exercise physiologist. Also joining us are two other podcast listeners James and Darren.
    Brodie, James & Darren have all completed their epigenetic testing online and Cam has come onto the show to discuss our results. We dive into ways each of us can tweek our strength training, diet, sleep and other aspects of our lives in order to train smarter & thrive the way our blueprint is set.

Is there anyway you could get DDP diamond Dallas page on to talk about the kind of yoga he does and I will most likely go against what your latest episode says about yoga

Exactly what every new runner needs

Having been a strength athlete and team sport athlete previously, I had done very little endurance running. Now training for triathlon, I’ve been really looking to find a better resource for guiding me through the inherent increased risks of endurance running. THIS is the best resource out there. I’ve tried all them. Lol.
