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

January 8, 2019

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

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

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

#55: Lamorna Hollingsworth on Women’s Nutrition, Weight Management & Modern-Day Body & Health Battles

December 11, 2018

Lamorna offers a refreshing and highly relatable perspective to the needs and struggles many ladies face when it comes to getting in shape and being healthy. 

Whilst men and women are equal in every measure, and can achieve pretty much all the same things, the tone of discussion, coaching and support is often different when helping ladies achieve their health and body goals. The logical, metrics-based, obsessive nature that men can often express when they get into the training and nutrition isn’t always what women want to hear, or get motivation from. In actual fact, for many women, this can have the opposite effect. Definitely not always - but quite often. So having a female voice, a female leader, offering guidance and relatability to the AdapNation female audience is a welcome break from time to time. I’m sure you’ll agree ladies! 😉

 

Lamorna is Personal Trainer, highly-accredited Nutritionist and an online coach exclusively for women. She’s got a great back story, is incredibly empathetic and practical to her real-world female clients, and has establish value-first business online with her courses, programmes and facebook community. We had a great conversation, and it was truly refreshing to provide a female voice of authority onto the podcast. 

 

Here’s what we cover in this Episode:

 

Intro Into Lamorna Hollingsworth:

▪︎ The unlikely transition from IT to falling in love with being a Fitness Professional

▪︎ Dealing with depression and self-worth issues after her surprise forced and politically-charged redundancy

▪︎ Changing her life by stepping into the Boxing Ring!

▪︎ Taking that bold step to become a personal trainer and nutritionist, and finding her true passion.

 

Observation, Needs and Struggles for todays Women:

1️⃣ The goal is always to lose weight, but sometimes dressed up as something else

2️⃣ Struggles with subconscious hard-wired food habits and lifestyle choices 

3️⃣ The Eat Less Move More mantra is quite often misunderstood or abused

4️⃣ Dealing with the mass of myths, opinions and contradictions in regards to weight loss and health

5️⃣ The psychological aspect is often left unaddressed, leading to regression

6️⃣ Struggles with body confidence, and setting unrealistic dieting goals that can be crushing

7️⃣ The need for black and white diet rules and wanting to be 10 out of 10 in one step

8️⃣ Breaking habits versus changing habits, and the incremental improvement mindset

9️⃣ Dealing with the issue of willpower by use of planning ahead

🔟 How to have a social life but still commit to losing weight

#54: Tom O’Bryan - Causes Behind The Explosion of Autoimmune & Brain Diseases, & How To Take Back Control

December 4, 2018

In a world where the new “normal" is a pretty sad state of affairs, there is an alarming increase in diseases, cancers, cognitive decline, obesity and general decline in quality of life and health.

Fortunately there are leaders in the functional medical space that are looking at the WHOLE system. Not just the heart, or brain, or liver, or stomach -  but EVERYTHING. The interplay between the entire body, and it’s response to our environment, lifestyle, food and mindset.

 

Dr Tom O’Bryan is one of those global leaders.  

A holistic practitioner who has dedicated his life and work to understanding the sequence of events through time, your body, and environment that is causing people a myriad of disease, unease and dysfunction. He has helped 10’s of thousands of people, and is extending that help through his books, online presence and talks.

Tom has authored two best-selling books on this subject. The first being the Autoimmune Fix, that includes an Anti-Inflammatory Diet Reset that I have personally done with my family. The second, and most recent, called You Can Fix Your Brain, extends the concepts by looking specifically on the impact our food, environment and lifestyle have on our brain health. 

 

Here’s what Dr Tom O’Bryan shares in this jam-packed 1h Episode:

 

1️⃣ The startling evidence that supports the need for a Paradigm Shifting Moment in how we look at human health and disease

2️⃣ How in just 1 hour a week over the course of a year you can transform your health and cognitive capabilities

3️⃣ The issues with Phthalates from Plastics, heavy metals and food toxins have on our lives

4️⃣ The worrying statistics related to Child health, intelligence and mental issues as a result of inheriting toxic overload from their mothers

5️⃣ Explaining how the immune system fights toxins with antibodies, but is not equipped for the volume of modern day toxins 

6️⃣ The direct link between chronic toxin exposure and autoimmune conditions such as Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, Alzheimers, Vitiligo, MS, Psoriasis, and how it takes decades to materialise into symptoms 

7️⃣ How an inflammatory lifestyle effects everybody in different ways, dependant on your weak link - i.e. your genetic vulnerabilities.

8️⃣ The difference between healthy antibody production for cell turnover and elevated antibodies that destroy more tissue than can be recreated

9️⃣ A great walkthrough on the onset and symptoms of Hashimoto's Disease and Hypothyroidism

🔟 How you Immune system elegantly remembers how to respond to toxins such as Gluten, for life, but the damaging consequence of this memory

#53: Addressing Joint or Muscular Pain & Elliot Hulse’s Meditation Camp

November 27, 2018

Muscular, tendon or joint pain can be so restrictive and uncomfortable, and can often lead us to believing we are ageing and/or broken. That it’s a fact of life that needs accepting, or something like surgery is needed.

However, a huge percentage of body pain is reversible, and is a message that there is some dysfunction or imbalance in the body that needs addressing. Work out the root cause, do some corrective strength and mobility work, and much more often than expected, you can return to full and pain free function. 

If you want to know more, this is the episode for you. 

Here’s what we cover in this Episode:

 

Part 1 - Elliot Hulse Grounding Camp / Dynamic Meditation:

▪︎ The transition over the years of Elliot - From beast mode Yo Elliot to Spiritual Guru

▪︎ Dynamic meditation - letting go of your ego, and breathing into ‘your balls'

▪︎ Bryn’s experience of letting go, meeting his man-crush, and whether he is a spiritual convert

▪︎ Being at the right place and time of your life to explore your spirit

 

Part 2 - Understanding & Addressing Body Aches & Pain (28:40 onwards):

1️⃣ What is the message physical Pain is giving us?

2️⃣ What is Phantom Pain, and does it mean there is something wrong?

3️⃣ The main general culprits for joint pain?

4️⃣ Chasing pain around the body vs understanding the root cause

5️⃣ Examples of common knee, Back & Hip Pain issues

6️⃣ The two most valuable tools to address muscular/joint pain

#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!
