The Damon Hayhow Podcast is my outlet for unscripted, unplanned rants about nutrition, weight training and supplementation for bodybuilding, powerlifting, fat loss, muscle gain, as well as ripping shreds out of the lies and stupidity of the health and fitness industry, personal trainers, doctors, gyms, supplement companies, performance enhancing drugs and anti-aging medicine.
Sports Nutrition Supplements that Work
My latest podcast: Sports Nutrition Supplements that “work”. Yes, the title is pure click-bait. But that is appropriate for a class of garbage, snake-oil products that set the standards for overpromising and underdelivering.
What I have to say is not your typical biochemistry scientism waffle. This is a real world discussion about a half-dozen supplements that I have consistently measured offering mild, drug-like, tangible benefits… in extremely specific contexts, within extremely narrow parameters, that are not what you typically hear.

Introduction to How To Do Body Recompositioning
I finally explain what body recompositioning is and the ridiculously simple, logical and obvious way to go about doing it… that nobody else seems to do. And I also rant about why the popular methods are so silly, as usual.
This is essentially the basis for most of my diet and training ideas.
Damon Hayhow Podcast: Anti-Aging Medicine BS Rant
This is a purely self-serving rant about the widespread, but utterly moronic belief, that hormonal medications are a miraculous elixir of youth that will make all men look, feel and function like 18 year olds, for the rest of their lives until they die. It is such a shame to see Anti-aging medicine subverted by shysters and marketers to sell modern day pharmaceutical snake oil. While everybody should see straight through the obvious con, most people fail to realise the obvious truth: your hormones do not conspire against you to make you old, weak, tired and flaccid. Your hormones are, at worst, another victim of our lifetime collection of bad decisions and mistakes.
Damon Hayhow Podcast: Blood Tests in Bodybuilders Part 4: Testosterone
Testosterone is the most horrendously overhyped and misunderstood hormone in the human body. It is the victim of the most absurdly hysterical misinformation from all sides of the manufactured argument. As should be expected, it is neither a deadly killer nor holy grail. I explain the simple realities of testosterone.
Damon Hayhow Podcast: Blood Tests for Bodybuilders Part 3: Cortisol
You’ve probably heard of Cortisol. You’ve probably heard its an evil hormone which only exists to ruin your physique and make you miserable. As usual, the reality is closer to the opposite of the common understanding; in more ways than you can imagine. Find out how cortisol can actually help you lose fat, grow muscle and feel fabulous; and the guaranteed way to achieve all of these benefits for yourself.
