#50: Bryn’s Exposé: His Semi-Private Gym, Authority Issues, Developing Masculinity, 2018 Struggles/Growth & Raw Personal Feedback

November 13, 2018

When’s the last time you've asked for really honest and raw feedback, from someone who knows you well? About your strengths, your weaknesses, and the things they don’t like so much?

When’s the last time you reflected on how you are showing up, and whether you are truly happy with how you handle yourself today? 

These are tough questions, and it takes courage to be exposed to some home truths. But these home truths could catapult you into a new exciting part of your life, where you become version 2.0.

 

Well, that’s the conversation Bryn Jenkins had today - ON AIR! It took balls, he wasn’t looking forward to it, but I think it was both therapeutic and liberating for Bryn, as he now sees what he needs to go do, to become the man that lights him up inside.

 

This is what we talk about:

 

Bryn HUUUUUGE News!

▪︎ He’s picked up the keys today...

▪︎ Starting a new wave of training within the UK fitness industry

▪︎ What is Semi-Private Training, the setup and the value to the people

 

Bryn’s Exposé (25mins onwards):

1️⃣ Reflecting on the amount of change and growth in 2018 personally

2️⃣ Struggling with being vulnerability, and wanting everyone to like him

3️⃣ Getting sick of being Mr. Nice Guy and lacking the respect of others

4️⃣ The struggle with proactively dealing with confrontation

5️⃣ Being the butt of other peoples jokes. Enough’s enough

6️⃣ Struggling to get voice heard in a group

7️⃣ How becoming a husband has starting the ball of change rolling

8️⃣ At a crossroad - exchanging Comfort for Discomfort, to help advance his future

9️⃣ What does he think his Wife’s Dad, his Best Mate, and his ‘Enemies’ would say of Bryn? Good and bad?

 

Bryn’s Opportunity For Growth:

▪︎ Ready to rebrand - Bryn 2.0. What that sounds like

▪︎ Starting to find the real Bryn. Accepting it, loving it, and refining it

▪︎ Becoming a Man. Owning his masculinity. How?

▪︎ How to think about commanding more respect, have more authority, and not always wanting to please

 

Correction: Didn’t mean two and half a men. Meant to be Three Men and A Baby, and referring to Tom Selleck!

#49: Are Wearable Devices & Health Tracking Tech Worth It, & Steve’s Magic Tech Experience in Disney World!

November 6, 2018

Is it worth considering a wearable device such as a watch or ring, or get into the data and insights from these health-related monitoring and tracking applications?

That’s what we get into in this episode, as we explore the impact wearable tech and tracking apps have had on Steve’s training, wellness, nutrition and day-to-day life over the last couple of years, and the potential of for this space over the coming years. The reality is, people have, and can continue to manage their lives, health and body shape without tech, data and added complexity. That said, does this new technology help you achieve your goals faster, more precisely and inform you in ways your basic intuition cannot?

This conversation actually flowed naturally from discussing Steve’s most recent family trip to Disney World - the experience, the magic, the logistics, the service and… the technology. 

 

Here’s what we discuss:

 

Disney World (first 25mins):

▪︎ How Steve surprised the girls fo the trip

▪︎ The art, science and logistics of created ‘Magic'

▪︎ Incredible highlights of Harry Potter World, Toy Story Land & Pandora

▪︎ How the cutting edge technology of wearables, apps and sensors transformed the experience...

 

The Scoop On Wearable & Health Tracking Technology (25:30 mins onwards):

1️⃣ Smart Watches - are they just a fad and gimmick? Do they make a positive difference?

2️⃣ Steve’s unease of walking away from beautifully crafted wrist watches

3️⃣ What do you end up really using these wearables for, day to day?

4️⃣ Are they accurate on calories, heart rate, distance etc, and does it matter?

5️⃣ Are wearable building up intuition and awareness, or are they making us ‘dumb’ to common sense?

6️⃣ Where is the wearable space going - Rings, Microbiome Testing, Glucose Monitoring, the nirvana dashboard...

7️⃣ How your heritage and DNA combined with this new tech could have answers to personalised optimal nutrition

#48: Michelle’s Experience Bulking to Fix Her Metabolism & Recompose Her Body Shape

October 30, 2018

She’s back again, after popular demand! Michelle Katasi joins this podcast to have an open an honest discussion about her experience of recently going on a ‘Bulk’ - a mild calorie surplus whilst progressively overloading with Weight Training. 

It’s a controversial approach that is met with huge initial resistance, as the mere idea of purposely eating more calories than you need for a woman goes against all the media and social conditioning related to having a ‘good' body. 

However, there comes a point in time for ladies where the downward spiral of Eat Less Move More stops working, or worse, can make you ill. And, if you get inspired by some of those #Instafit influencer female physiques, the truth is many have packed up a reasonable amount of muscle over the years to achieve the look. 

 

So, as Michelle has followed the Break-The-Mould Body Plan as well as the AUG-18 LADIES #HyperWorkouts over the last 10 weeks, it’s time to let you guys into the truth. Has it been great, ok, or a waste of time? Has she balled out of control from a weight perspective, or is she in a good place?

 

Michelle covers:

1️⃣ Why she felt compelled to start a Bulk

2️⃣ Her apprehensive feelings before starting

3️⃣ The specifics of Nutrition and Training plan she followed

4️⃣ Progress she made in the gym

5️⃣ Her approach to driving accountability and pressure to progress

6️⃣ How specifically her body changed during the process 

7️⃣ How she felt during and towards the end - both physically and emotionally

8️⃣ How the subsequent Cut (calorie deficit) is going

9️⃣ Where her head is at regarding he experience, and whether it has changed her approach/outlook to managing her body shape going forward

#46: Our Go-To Health & Fitness Apps, & the iPhone’s ‘Screen Time’ to Manage Usage

October 16, 2018

The rapid advancement of usable everyday technology can be so liberating and enabling, and at the same time be so destructive when it comes to productivity and happiness.  

Specifically, as we talk about Smart Phones, use and dependancy is spiralling out of control. That said, if you are mindful and leverage the latest features and apps, you can pull out so much goodness from your phone whilst controlling your use. That’s the essence of our discussion today. 

 

First part of our chat talks about the latest release of iOS with an insightful and powerful feature called Screen Time. We chat about how this release allows for greater insight and management of your tech use as well as your kids. We delve into the eye opening stats of Steve’s phone use (eek), and how he intends to help curb the inevitable trend of his young kids getting addicted to their tech. Let’s face it, most of us are using our phone's as a crutch to run, operate and distract our lives. We’re truly addicted. Features like this help highlight the issue and give us tools to manage our use. 👍

 

For the Second Partof the Podcast (at ~20mins in), we get into our Go-To Health & Fitness Apps we use frequently, that you too may want to look at. We’ve broken the Apps down into Four Categories:

 

1️⃣ Food Apps- Nutrition, Diet Management & Food Inspiration

2️⃣ Training Apps- Programmes, Workout Tracking, Accountability, Running, HIIT Training etc

3️⃣ Rest Apps- Guided Meditation, Sleep Tracking, Device Use Management

4️⃣ Overall Stats, Dashboards & Other Apps- Apple’s Health App, Apple’s Screen Time etc

 

Lastly, we chat about our Tech Wish List (at ~58mins in) - where we’d like to see technology go to make things even better, faster and easier to use smart tech to advance our health, fitness and wellness.

#42: Kevin Thiele Analyses Steve’s Talents & Non-Strengths with Data & Coaching

September 25, 2018

What a cracker of a discussion! In this Episode I am joined by Talent & Strengths Coach Kevin Thiele, founder of Salescode.co.uk and whose mission it to help manage high performance sales teams. 

After I performed a Psychometric online assessment called CliftonStrengths, Kevin joined me to perform a live readout call of my report, where we bare all about my personality type - warts and all!

This is a great chat, as it combines healthy debate with honesty, vulnerability, humour and an insanely accurate assessment of how we both show up as people in very different ways.

 

In actual fact, Kevin and I worked within the same industry and were aware of each other for many years. Both carved out a successful career in IT Sales, yet our talents are surprisingly different. How can two very different people play the same game and be successful at it? We explore this and much more in this fascinating discussion. 

 

Here’s what you can expect to listen in on, with links to the Psychometric Assessment and links to Kevin’s online presence below:

1️⃣ Difference between Talents, Strengths, Skills and Weaknesses

2️⃣ Success comes from Excellence. Excellence and satisfaction comes from leveraging talents

3️⃣ You can be moderately successful without talent… but unlikely

4️⃣ What is Gallup’s CliftonStrengths assessment and how is it different? Calls out your Talents and where your strengths are assessed within 30mins. 

5️⃣ Steve and Kevin sharing good and bad stories of their careers

6️⃣ Describing Steve’s TOP 5 Strength Themes, and how they can be Leveraged AND Abused

7️⃣ Steve's surprising lack of Relationship Building and Communication in his Top 5

8️⃣ Compassion vs Empathy - Can you develop compassion if your empathy is naturally low?

9️⃣ Accept yourself - your strengths and non strengths. As opposed to comparing yourself with others

🔟 Our people annoying you because they are being difficult or because they are DIFFERENT?

 

Many gems to listen out for:

- The 5 attributes to Success - talent, attitude, skills, knowledge, style

- Needs of followers - Hope, Trust, Stability, Compassion

- Steve & Kevin’s Individual Top 5 Talent Themes

#41: Truth About Getting ‘Rock Hard Six-Pack’ Abs & Bryn Getting A Puppy

September 18, 2018

We’ve all seen and probably succumb to those 'Rock Hard Abs' and 'Get A Six Pack’ adverts during our lifetimes - those marketers know how to get guys to act and spend money!

Abs are the definition of sexiness and good health in modern times, and it’s universally considered by men that abs are what women want. It’s funny that what men think women want and what women find attractive is usually quite different… 🤣

But let’s be clear, Abs are here to stay as part of societies image of health, athleticism and physical attractiveness. And we at AdapNation embrace looking good naked! 

 

So, in this episode, we walk you through what you need to know. From the misconceptions, low priority stuff, and unrealistic online photos through to the key tenants behind building a strong, healthy and sexy core.

 

A.  What people typically do when they are their Six-Pack mission 

B.  Some Ineffective Activities for Ab development

C.  The Key Tenants to a great Six-Pack Look

    1️⃣ Diet, Leanness & Body Fat Percentages

    2️⃣ The Online Lie - Lighting, Oil, Bronzing, Angles, Post Production

    3️⃣ Posture & Bloating

    4️⃣ How to Purposefully Progressively Overload Your Abs

    5️⃣ Core vs Abs - What’s the difference? What Are The Training Differences?

    6️⃣ Heavy Compound Lifting & Whether Ab Isolation / Crunch Work is Needed.

 

15-20min CHIT-CHAT🐕 - We kick this episode off taking about dogs. Specifically, Bryn is looking to get himself a Puppy. We chat about our youth with dogs, Steve’s stupid (but fast) Whippets, and how we are pretty similar to dogs in our fight-or-flight instinctive reactions.
