#608 - Lessons from the Gym Pt.1
The gym can be a confusing place, what exercises are best, what reps are best, why are some machines hogged over others, and how do we get the results we’re looking for with the minimal amount of effort? Tom and I, combined, have been in the gym for 28 years, so we thought we would fire up the mic and discuss all the things we know now, that we wish we knew back then. Why we train, how you become happy training, how to get rid of training induced anxiety, the pay off of the big 3 exercises, how many days a week to train, training volume, training specificity, are just some of the things we discuss. This is part 1, we’d love your insights and lessons from the gym, help us shape part 2… Enjoy!
#607 - Is Winning the Goal with Dr Josephine Perry
In life, in sport, in the gym, is winning the goal? Dr Josephine Perry is a sports psychologist and coaches young athletes from the age of 8, right up to 80 year olds still trying to achieve their goals. And while we all have goals, how do they take shape, and what is the definition of achieving them? When we then set out to achieve a goal, what then holds us back, fear, a lack of confidence, the comments of others, a lack of preparation? Dr Perry has just written an awesome book called “I Can: The Teenage Athletes Guide to Mental Fitness”, except the book is for all, its simplicity and approach is brilliant, for young or old, and I loved this interview. If you are goal driven, or want to be more goal driven, or want to achieve more, this show is for you.

#606 - Building Confidence in Yourself
Most people would say they wish they had more confidence, with many claiming some people are just naturally more confident, but is this true? Surely we are all confident at some stuff? Two people wrote into the podcast which formatted what we feel is a deep dive into developing your inner confidence, refining your ability and character, how to know what ideas are good and which are the bad ones, and use a few examples, one being how to write something, like a blog or a book or to start a project when there is procrastination and fear, another example with weight loss and how we focus on BIG often disempowering goals that make us question our ability. The reality is, most people would say they would love to be more confident and trust themselves, and we hope this podcast goes some way to helping.

#605 - Caffeine, Performance & Redlining Workouts
Caffeine, something 99% of us take, multiple times a day, but what is the science behind it, what is the perfect dose, how does it affect our sleep, how does it affect performance in the gym, in training and sport, and when can it be bad? Find out, alongside Tom and I jumping down a few other rabbit holes…!

#604 - Stress, How Deep Does it Go?
Stress is in all our lives, but how deep does it go, how does it affect us, and are we aware of all the stressors in our life? Having coached for 14 years now, I've seen and worked with a lot of stressed people, and there are common character traits of the 'stressed' person, thus, we could argue that stress isn't real in some respects, but it very much is, because life is happening all around us and pushing and pulling us constantly. In this solo podcast I cover the many forms of stress in our lives, how to potentially look at it, how to solve or alleviate it, and how to hopefully become, less stressed. Enjoy.
#603 - When Life is Difficult
Right now, and at many points in our lives, things get difficult, and its often tough to see a way out. This podcast was spurred by a great question sent into the show which started simple on the surface, but Tom and I found a way to go down a deep rabbit hole and look at life challenges, goals and what happens when we can't achieve them, where self-awareness only gets us so far with our own problems, why you should never stop at one diagnosis if you're not happy, how to solve our life frustrations, and more.

Truly makes you think and helps you manifest an awesome life
I’ve been a loyal listener since the beginning and Ben has always been extremely honest, knowledgeable, raw, well-spoken, and clearly wants to do everything he can to serve his audience.
Listening to this podcast has had a profound impact on my nutrition, fitness, and mindset and is a big reason why I am proud of the person I am today and am living an awesome life!
The education I’ve gained from this podcast has helped me lose over 50 lbs, get rid of my high blood pressure, overcome depression, overcome an eating disorder, and has inspired me to become a certified personal trainer and health coach!
I know I can trust everything Ben and Tom say because they base everything off of research and approach everything without bias.
Thank you so much Ben for serving so many people and for continuing to inspire me to help others live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives!
Keep it up buddy!
Finally, someone who doesn’t come across as over elite and explains things!
My favorite part about listening to Ben and his show is that Ben clearly has an abundance of well researched and tested knowledge. But he doesn’t come across as so elite that following him is useless. He talks to the listeners as if they are his best friends asking for help. Even the quick shows start with a “how are you? I hope you’re awesome!” and oddly I feel like he’s seriously saying / meaning. that and not just using a good opening line. Ben and his guests have really expanded my food / training knowledge and continue to do so. Thanks Ben, thanks Tom, and thanks to your guests!
