#65: Optimise for Your Neurotype with Christian Thibaudeau

February 19, 2019
00:0000:00

Just wow! Be prepared to have you mind blown several times in this podcast, as we hear from the incredible Christian Thibaudeau on understanding who we are based on our Neurotype.

Christian has been coaching elite athletes across 28 different sports and general population face to face and online fro over 20 years. With over 600+ articles on T-Nation, three best selling strength and conditioning books and a huge video and article presence all over the internet, Christian is one of the top leaders globally in his field, and comes with a unique blend of experience, capability and scientific smarts. 

 

The world of Neurotyping is pretty fascinating. Where psychometric assessments and psycho analysis focusses on who you are based on your past and how you show up today, Neurotyping can describe WHY you are that way chemically, and can accurate describe your tendencies, personality, motivations and much more. 

It’s about about neurotransmitter dominance - or put another way which of the excitatory neurotransmitters are you the most sensitive to and which inhibitory neurotransmitters do you predominately produce to slow things down. I know this sounds geeky and far fetched, but by the end of this conversation you will understand yourself at a whole new level, as Christian blends chemistry with psychology, training and nutrition. 

You will be able to identify which Neurotype you are based on the personality descriptions Christian offers, and as a result will learn which type of training style you are innately motivated to the most and will recover from the fastest.

 

You might want to get a pen and paper at the ready for this one, and hover over the rewind button, as three is so much to take away from this chat that could change your outlook on your training, relationships and lifestyle forever.

 

Here’s what we cover:

1️⃣ Who is Christian and how he discovered Neurotype’s through trying to understand himself

2️⃣ What are key Neurotransmitters that drive behaviour

3️⃣ The idea behind Neuro Dominance - it’s all about sensitivity and production levels

4️⃣ The chemical differences between the 5 Neurotypes

5️⃣ How each of the Neurotypes show up in life - e.g. socially, performance, stress levels, training, nutrition, leadership

6️⃣ The Training preferences for 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B and 3 that will provide greatest motivation and fastest recovery

7️⃣ Christian on-the-fly identifying the Neurotype of Steve people close to him

8️⃣ Many anecdotes from Christian personally and a variety of his Athletes he has trained regarding their Neurotypes

9️⃣ How to incorporate training modalities that do not match you Neurotype preference successfully

#64: Which should I do - Strength or Hypertrophy Training?

February 12, 2019
00:0000:00

This is the kind of discussion and set of facts I wish heard many years ago, prior to even lifting my first set of weights.

There is so much confusion as it relates to the ‘best’ way to train in the gym to get bigger and stronger - part by design from the industry, and part because there are dogmatic folk who just believe in their method. 

So, this conversation attempts to lay some solid foundational knowledge, so you can understand the difference between true Strength Training vs Hypertrophy training, including the benefits, distinctions, similarities, use cases and downsides.

 

At the end of this Podcast, you’ll understand the most important thing - that resistance training has a spectrum of modalities that amplify certain benefits more than others, and deliberately working throughout that spectrum is how to keep making progress, year after year.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ Steve & Bryn’s progress and surprise benefits with their current Hypertrophy training blocks

2️⃣ Definition of Strength Training vs Hypertrophy Training

3️⃣ Body Adaptation & Training Benefits of each training style

4️⃣ Which Training style to choose (first/predominantly) based on 8 common Use Cases

5️⃣ The Circular Loop - Do you get Bigger by getting Stronger or do you get Stronger by getting Bigger?

6️⃣ The Personal Factors that will determine whether Strength vs Hypertrophy training is right currently

7️⃣ Should you consider mixing both styles within a single session?

8️⃣Throwing away the 8h nighttime sleep rule away- and how to think about sleep and recovery in a refreshing way

9️⃣ Your Pre-Bed routing starts the moment you wake up- Listen to Nick’s tips on how to deliberately plan for great sleep and recovery

🔟 Tech-driven ‘Orthosomnia’ - Understand the positive and negative impacts when trying to measure your sleep

#62: Eating Habits, Cravings & Food Environment with Tom Bainbridge

January 29, 2019
00:0000:00

Today, we’re joined by Tom Bainbridge who talks through the fascinating topic of eating habits, cravings, addictions, decision making and controlling our food environment. Getting your head around this topic could have a huge impact not only on your body goals, but how you go about managing your life through good habits whilst replacing bad habits and cravings.

Of course, resolve and having a strong enough why is the driving force behind sustained commitment to change,but, at a physiological and hormonal level our subconscious is being directed to act in ways that could be detrimental to our goals. And these evolutionary hard wired instincts have a LOT of force on our voluntary action. So, whilst mind-over-matter has it’s place for sure, we can massively help ourselves by setting up for success physically and environmentally...

He’s a science-driven nutritionist that values the data and studies to back up statements and recommendations. Tom runs a top-notch Nutrionist course called BTN Academy, is a frequent co-host with Ben on the Ben Coomber Radio Podcast, and is frequently invited to talk around the country. In particular, he has a deep understanding on habits, neurological and hormonal reactions in the body and the psychology as it relates to eating.

 

Lots of fascinating studies cited, to bring home the scientific truth behind behaviour and our food decisions.

 

Here’s what we cover: 

1️⃣ Getting to know Tom - Medieval Archery, Red Wine and his approach to nutrition

2️⃣ The Nudge Theory, and acknowledging we don’t have complete free agency

3️⃣ Impact of the Food Environment vs Mental State on the Obesity Crisis

4️⃣ Stress - the impact it has on our eating habits and choices

5️⃣ Our Evolutionary Unconditioned Food Preferences - what are they and why?

6️⃣ The Dopamine Pathway and reward system

7️⃣ Innate Preferences vs Food Addictions vs Eating Addictions

🔟 Top Tips of how to better control Your Food Environment

January 22, 2019
00:0000:00

This episode was recorded initially on Mike Matthews top-ranking podcast Muscle For Life, and given the episodes popularity, we thought you’d like to hear it too. 

Steve has undergone quite the body, career and life transformation over the last couple years. It’s those step changes in his life that lead to the founding of AdapNation and Steve’s utter focus on helping you #BeYourBest. 

 

And if the truth be told, it was Mike’s work - specifically his book Bigger Leaner Stronger, that was the catalyst for all this change. So, this episode is part testimonial to all the service and value Mike has delivered to Steve and others, combined with a walkthrough of Steve’s holistic transformation. 

 

We touch on: 

1️⃣ Steve’s obsession with work and how that lead him to a bad place from a health and body perspective

2️⃣ Steve’s love for food and big portions, and how that caught up with him

3️⃣ What was the catalyst for seeking out change - for deciding enough was enough?

4️⃣ How Steve made progress, but it wasn’t until he was introduced to Mike’s work that things really changed

5️⃣ Fast forwarding to today, what Steve’s life look like now

6️⃣ The cascading effect of getting in shape has had to the broader aspects of wellness and career

#59: Understanding Your Personality & Training Neurotype for Long-Term Habit Change

January 8, 2019
00:0000:00

New Year. New You. Right?

Well, yes and no. 

What motivates action and defines our personality is pretty hard-wired by about 5 years old. Sorry if you don’w want to hear it, but you can’t change who you are. But you CAN change how you act, if you first understand who you are - including what makes you tick and your inherent ‘weaknesses’. 

As so many people make a New Years Resolution that involves fitness, getting in shape and general health, this episodes touches on two critical self-awareness aspects that if understood could be massive leverage for you this year.

 

We talk how different people get accountability from different places and means, and how long-term training adherence can be achieved if you understand your Neurotype.

 

Here’s the flow of the discussion:

 

A Shaky Start To The New Year:

1️⃣ Have you had a ‘flappy’ start to the new year? Anticipating failure and setbacks

2️⃣ The New Year Fitness-Kick Industry trend

3️⃣ Having a Theme(s), showing up, being kind to yourself, knowing your why...

  

The Four Tendencies - Who/What holds you Accountable to take action? ~16:00 (40min)

4️⃣ The Four Tendencies - which one are you?

5️⃣ Understanding the differences in motivation between Upholder, Obliger, Questioner and Rebel

6️⃣ How to manage your Tendency and leverage it (vs trying to change who you are)

 

The Five Training Neurotypes - Which modality of training suits your body and maximises adherence? ~56:00 (13min)

7️⃣ Understanding The Training Neurotypes - 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B & 3.

8️⃣ Do you prefer slow grinding sets, explosive movement, novelty, tons of reps or consistency?

9️⃣ The best workout plan for getting bigger/leaner/stronger is the the plan that...

 

Oh, and you get to hear Bryn & Steve’s personal self-awareness as we identify with these descriptions and expose how we show up based on our Tendency & Neurotype.

#57: Xmas Mindset Special - Reflecting, Visualising & Planning For A Great Year

December 25, 2018
00:0000:00

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

I hope the break with friends and family has/was everything you hoped it would be, and you’ve taken the time to decompress and have fun.

For many, this extended break that we share with most of the country gives us a unique time to to not be owned by work pressure, and perhaps reflect on the year, as well as consider the future. 

This episode is intended to support and relate to this common space we find ourselves in at this time fo the year, by asking some thought provoking questions of you and us - to set off a spark of gratitude from all we experienced this year, and seed a little excitement about the possibilities you could experience in the year ahead. 

Consider it your New Years Resolution brainstorming - but this time we’re both going to keep to these important themes and goals we set ourselves...

 

Here’s what we cover:

 

1️⃣ What Christmas means to us

 

2️⃣ Reflection -

Are you satisfied with 2018, without regrets? Were there setbacks? Did you spend enough time with the people we care about? What were all your magic moments? How have you changed and developed?

 

3️⃣ Your 2019 Theme - Your North Star - 

What is your Theme for the year? What will make you proud and happy on Xmas 2019? Do you want to Be More, Do More, Give More? What skills and attributes need to be developed? Preventing negative self-talk derailing progress.

 

4️⃣ Starting The Ball Rolling - 

High-Level Milestone Setting. Not confusing a Goal with a Plan. Not Planning (yet) - instead avoiding overwhelm by small incremental action now. What resources, mentors, help do you need to seek out?

 

5️⃣ Quick introduction to DEC-18 Gents & Ladies #HyperWorkouts - A potential training programme to get you starting in the new year.

#56: Have You Achieved Your Body Goals This Year? If Not, Why?

December 18, 2018
00:0000:00

Transforming your body is logically pretty straight forward, and much of the science and process in making the changes you want is well understood in the fitness space. 

However, so many people struggle to achieve their ideal body shape. Why?

Getting 50-80% there can come quite quickly, especially when you have momentum and rhythm on your side. But going from good to great is reserved for the very few. Those that have a strong enough WHY, and have the mental strength to do what it takes over the long-term.

Psychologically we’re so complex. Logic and knowledge is not enough to get what we truly desire. This idea is proved in all areas of our lives on a daily basis. 

That really is the essence of this episode discussion, as Bryn and Steve reflect on their body progress made this year. I suspect many people will be able to relate to much of our combined experience, and hopefully you can take some motivation or insights into how you pursue building your best body ever.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ Are bold goals and New Years resolutions worth it?

2️⃣ Dealing with your body goals FLATLINING or going backwards

3️⃣ What BRYN has learnt in 2018 about himself from a body transformation perspective

4️⃣ ACCEPTING and managing/leveraging your traits is the trick to keeping with you goal - E.g. need for External Accountability, Outsourcing Planning, Novelty seeking, Consistency issues 

5️⃣ Is your WHY strong enough to do what it takes over the long term? And do you REALLY want what you say want?

6️⃣ The difference between a GOAL & a crystal clear VISION

7️⃣ Why after newbie gains, OVERSIZING your body is the most difficult aspect of body transformation. Wise people with good but not great bodies...

8️⃣ The need to EXPAND your WHY beyond the body outcome for long-term adaptation - the process, progress, emotional, mental, physical benefits

9️⃣ STEVE'S honest & raw assessment progress towards his 2 year body goal set in Jan 2018

🔟 The difference between being DISSATISFIED vs being UNHAPPY
