My Name's lucky, I'm your host for today and I'm joined boy, my best man, am my best mate, Mr Anique. How are you going to be done by it? Yeah, pretty, you're pretty good. Pretty good. It's been a beautiful day, yest down so far. It has taken US seven takes to get to this point. Yeah, this is the one that's being conservative to. This is the one that is the one. This is the magic let's do it. Yeah. So, anyway, last time we did have some issues. We're on a new platform now and I think we're all good to go. So it's rock in, baby. Wanted you get up to today. Had Work in the morning, woke up early when the gym hit a heavy legs session at the gym, and you know, it's good to walk up about it. Forty five was at the gym by seven, seven o'clocks and fifteen. Yeah, heavy legs, heavy legs, baby, heavy like that's risky, doing heavy legs early in the morning. I'll look, I had to take pretty work. I'D NOT gonna lie. Yeah, what's your God to nowadays? At. I'M NOT gonna lie. This guy called me into buying this one called total, total workout or some other. Okay, and it's not great. It tastes like Piss, but it's what it is. Yeah, it wasn't his piece. Huh. Well, always gets. I get sweetie. Back in the day we look pretty pre war. Pre War was good. Total war. That was a good. That was a without a told. War was the one after the leg Legis legislation. Let just yeah, came out with the post government. Yeah, intervention, yeah, the post government. Yeah. So that was without the chemicals boost. So yeah, yeah, some the shit. I will yeah, or I will without further do you. Let's get straight into it. Last week we last week last podcast, which added a bit about health, fitness and, you know, the act of taking action. Yeah, so we're going to keep the ball rolling on that, I think, a little bit locker one. Yes, sounds good, and we're going to get right into fitness and movement and ass and maybe this. So, yeah, fit will fitness, health and fitness. Let's go. Health and fitness is what we can do about today. And everyone knows how important health and fitness is. Right. So, you know, you cannot start to list out the benefits of going to the gym more simply just going for a walk or just moving right. Movement equals emotions, right. So, like you know, if you think about it, there's so many R is about it as well. So, you know, something small as I don't know if you remember, the used to be a theory about putting a pain in your mouth and you hold a pen in your mouth and you know you'd be the act of smiling or the movement or spy smiling, and by the end of it you'll be happy, if that makes sense, you know right. So motion creates emotion. Yeah, is the word of the day. So really want to emphasize on that and really want to chat about bit about health and fitness and, you know, moving and eating the right things and how important it is and, I guess, practically how it's affected our lives right and taken us from certain places oppositions, and how it continues to be kind of the mainstead or something that never goes right. So things come and go, you move house, you change relationships, but certainly nutrition, but more than anything, physical exercise. There something about it that it's it's so important for it to be in the forefront of your life at all times. Right, absolutely, absolutely. Now, I mean we can get into a bit of a story as to our personal side of things as well. How our fitness journey. I mean I like to see I like to consider myself healthy. Yeah, definitely. Yeah, for sure, and I think there's always a journey on how the health and fitness journey sort of comes to be. But I really want to yeah, so I want to really want to talk about how. So let's just get right into it. So basically I'm going to go so my high school career. So high school career, because you know, I see everything as a career. So, like back in high school days, you know, I wasn't the most I wasn't I wasn't in great shape. I mean I was, I was still playing cricket, I was playing sports, all that stuff, but it was at the time I don't think it was enough. Right. So I was doing all that but, you know, slightly out of shape, probably not feeling my greatest and you know, the focus was low and...

...all the usual stuff, until I got into the gym and you know, sort of body start changing and you know, the mood, I started feeling better about things. Back Locklin was there the whole time. I think we first started. I was like January, just before yeah, it was like January twenty thirty. Yeah, I think, Shanry do thirteen. Yeah, yeah, to the date. So how many years is that now? Oh Wow, that's literally January eve. It is, flack seven years. So there you go, seven years and and I think this is this is important podcast we can actually get really into it and talk technically as well, at least a physical, physical side of it, because, yeah, we have been training for seven years, I suppose. Yeah, yeah, Ron, what you saw, say, like our year two, three is in, like what's it going to be like? And seven years of experience and you're always learning, you're always growing and we're certainly neither of us are qualified in a formal setting, but with seven years of experience and anything, particularly something using a body, you do figure out what works and what doesn't work. And also for other people, like we've had many people come and go, many people that are still exercising, exercising because of maybe our influence or our recommendation. Sorry, for sure, us to sure this could be. There's few people I could claim under my belt getting them, not just couple of notches. But yeah, so, you know, it's important health and fitness. So we're trying to say so it's really important. Has A has a major impact on your mood and you know, has a major impact on your mood, makes you feel better. You know, it's really good for your mental health. You know, we talked a bit about Sarahtonin is a chemicals released by brain. It's a chemical release by brain. Right, yeah, so whole my emeright. Yeah, it's a gonna releastle great right. Yeah, yeah, so Sarah Turning is, you know, it's related with, you know, feeling your feeling of your furry are feeling happy, and that's directly related with moving and health and fitness and, you know, going for a walk or going for a run. One of my one of my end this is, see, this is doing this whole podcast series that we're going to do. See, I get a bit annoyed at the fact that people talk about something and never end up doing it. So I'm just gonna, I think we're going to take this opportunity to really hammered this in and, you know, look, Ham with this in and talk about how important it is to take that step and talk about a few feel little hacks or habit building activities that you could do to, you know, really jump on the train of fitness. Yeah, practical vice that we've used, recular that lies. Yeah, probably going to help other people similar way, for sure. HMM, for sure. All right. So did you want to did you want to start with a little bit of a rent about health and fitness? Yeah, absolutely, and the way I relate it is and one thing I grew up from a young kid, like I loved it very quickly, like what I like doing the most was going out and playing sports. So for me it was rugular league and it was cricket. So those are the do things. I got into it a very young age. My Dad was our heavy influence for me and my brother. We were, you know, will constantly playing six months of the year as cricket. The other six months was rugby league. YEA, and it did take away from school work and certainly I did have some behavior. Is She's to yet, as we all did at that age, but it wasn't outload. Was a constant thing that I was doing every day, day and a day out, and something I felt a sense of accomplishment with. And that sort of grew and develops in and it was more more than just playing the sport or doing the physics exercise. It's like a sense of identity and when you when you become passionate about something, it bleeds into other areas of your life and and accomplishments one of those things that, even if it might be in a local team sport or it might be at the gym, maybe you've lost a bit away, you're lifting a certain amount of a weight, it confidence comes from that. And so for a lot of people they might, you know, if they aren't physically active, they might not understand the importance of it. But I think we all have something we're proud of in one way or another. You might have been younger, you might have been older. Might be something recent and must be something from a long time ago. But yeah, for me, in a roundabout way, that's something I've always been proud of. So I started getting to the gym. My Dad got me first in the gym when I was fourteen years old and at that stage or was just very basic stuff. Buy sepkils in a little bit of bench. Remember the first time I tried to bench, I could only do the bar and I was like wow, so weak, like what's going on here? But the one thing I knew is, difficult as it was, I wanted to just go back. I wanted to get better. I would watch other people in the gym and I didn't look at them like wow, look out there, so much better than me. I could never reach that. I'm more so thought okay, like that's something I can push for and I can strive for as well. And then I think really what you know, I remember that before I got you into the gym, I was going kind of by myself and I was kind...

...of just doing it because I had nothing else to do. Right when I got you into the gym with you were sort of my first proper training partner and it was obviously what helped us bond and what helped us become, you know, best mates. At that stage, you know, will both entering at all pretty important time of our lives, but it has sort of allowed us to connect and grow and we both got more confident, we both got better because of it, and that's just bled and continue to bleed into my life now. And there's been times where I've gone through ups and downs, like we all have, but when I'm training hard, when I'm training consistently and even if I'm not at my best. But if I'm trying my best of the gym, then other areas of my life tend to be doing better. And might be, might be a career, it might be might be a relationship, even it could just be, could be, could even be my finances. When I'm putting my effort into the gym, that bleeds into all other areas of my life. So it's not going to be like that for everyone, but for me, I don't know. Sounds strange, but it was never too hard to get myself in the gym. There's always daisy, you don't want to go and that sort of thing. But I found that even even the days I didn't want to go, every time I you know, every time I did go in there. The old adage where you still always talk about like the only bad workout is the one they didn't happen. The under yeah, really bad attempt is the one you don't you know, the one you don't make. So yeah, well, that's it. So I mean you've said some good points. I mean the fact of the matter is, when you talking about fitness, is right. Fitness has a major e fact, like we said before, and there's a there's a domino effect as well. So you know, you achieve something and then you feel more confident. And the thing is, and we spoke about this the last episode as well, going to the gym into the morning. Let's I'm no one, not everyone has to go to the gym in the morning. We never used to go to the gym in the morning. Road we all rent get away was when a gym is yeah, if you got just just think about this, where if you go to the gym right in the morning, early, as you know, at seven o'clock or six o'clock right, first of all, the hardest thing that you're going to do the entire day that's going to require the most amount of willpower, it's probably getting out of bed. Right. If you get out of bed and the next thing, the next prop the hardest thing is probably going to the gym. And if you're already at the gym and get yourself there and you start working out, and the hardest you've already done the hardest thing. See, I I don't know if people are afraid of work. Is Not so much that people don't like working out or they can't get themselves to work out. It's not so much the working out that people are often afraid or of, you know, or don't end up doing or find it difficult to do. I think it's more so the fact of of actually getting yourself to do that act. It's the difficult. But yeah, it's the start. Once you once you get to the yeah, once you get to the gym, it's all all easy. Yeah, you know, you get into a you feel good all of a sudden. I mean first setting you feel good. I mean obviously there's going to be workouts where you'll feel like shit. You just feel like playing shit and you're like, you know, well, this is at least I showed up. And it's true, you showed up. That's all that matters in your building a habit. And of course fitness has a huge effect on things, you know, so everything of your finance as well. So if you're focusing on fitness, rights has a fitness is this? There's a book and he talks about Keystone habits in your life and that impact all areas. Yeah, and fitness is one of them. And so what you know? Another one might be. And there was a stress area that we I talked about out as well before. There's actually a there's actually a program I'm working on at the moment who a counter buddy, and it focuses on the major stress areas, which in which includes career, finance, health and fitness and, you know, and your your social life. So those are the stress areas that people your relationships, right. So, you know. So those are the areas that people you know, if you can balance those areas, you don't really have to think about anything else. If you don't, I mean everything else is pretty automatic, if that makes sense. You know. Yeah, those are there, is right. So you know what you can do, and it's fitness is probably the biggest one, because once you get into it, like, you know, think about it, this where right. I actually I credit my fitness to most of my things that I've done in my life. Right, you know, in my first big interview I went to right, I was, you know, I was in great shape, I felt good about myself. You know, I was confident, almost too contidents at time, you know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, but you know, I felt good, I felt good about myself. So if you were to think about it, that where, you know, you go to the gym, so let's say, you know, if you start it's two thousand and twenty. You get your shit together and you finally sign up at a sign up at the gym. Right. So this is what happens. Right A. you'll be proud of yourself for signing up to the gym, right, which is the first thing done. Now you can't stop here, because we talked about this last week, because you know this is motion, because you you sign up to the gym and then you're like you well, at least I did something, and you just lying to yourself, you know,...

...and making yourself feel better because you know you've been piece of you mean, a piece of shit for the past six years and you finally side up to the gym just to make yourself feel better. You haven't gone, so you know there's no point. But if you're going to go to the gym, so you get yourself to the gym. You know, start working out. You know you you feel a bit. You know you don't feel great because you know you you don't know what you're doing, but you know you watch few youtube videos, you know you look up Elliott host because you know he's a great, great man. It's as like a great may right. You. Yeah, you know, you sign up. Yeah, you sign up to a few PODCASTS, you learn a bit about it. It is there's plenty of influences to go around. So we're not going to get into how to do what. Right, there's plenty of those people around talking about what to do. You. Yeah, do bit of that. You know. Let's say, let's talk about Scots, right, you know, first time you scored, you can barely scored the bar. Next, next week, you do the same thing. You now you can squat, you know, tenkularly side. All of a sudden wall. What happened there? That's right, because you know, if you start, you that's that's what progressive. What will load is you know, your body will adapt. As soon as you give it a new challenge, your body will be like yeah, because your body has been craving that. Humans aren't designed to sit around and just hang out on the computer. It's of fact, you know, we are. We come from ancestors off, you know, gatherers, and you know people who used to move around and all the wars, and that's our bodies have. Bodies are made to be physically active, all right. So anyway, you know, you feel better results. Right, like you physically say that white go up, you physically see selfie and get better and then very quickly there's the motivation to continue to keep going, to keep growing and keep getting better and keep you in strong. Well, that's it. And well, that's it, and he doesn't stop there. The benefit of that is now, now you're going to work. Right. So you already achieved something, right, it's not that. There's not the thing with we talked about habit building and building long term habits and sustainable habits that benefit you. Right. The thing with fitnesses you go in, you get instant results. Are, you get your you get certain tone and you feel better. Right, be you know, in a week you already feel stronger. So you achieved something and you know, you know you're in a now you're in sort of like a flow, in a flow mode. Right. Use You like, Oh, well, I've achieve something, what else can I do? You know? Yeah, so you feel better. So that's one area. So you go to your job. You you were so you are achieve fitness. You go to your job. You know, this is your career, if you will write. You go to your job and you know you feel better today. So all of a sudden you not going to be cranky and you know you you know you will feel everything will be less stressful because you've already had that. You know, sort of, I suppose, sort of release the stress as well. You know, obviously working our releases stress as well. Yeah, that's what I talked about last time. Caught us all in particular, like the YS hormone and your your body physically exhorts that, you know, aspect, that outlet when you exercise, like Cortisol runs up glucose. Your Body Burns Glucose to work out. Then from there, like you're you're you're doing measurable results within the first ten or fifteen minutes of exercise, and it doesn't have to be anything major, doesn't have to be anything groundbreaking, but it's about getting a heart rate up and conning setting the platform for the rest of the day. Well, that's it, and you know you're going to you're going to be in a better state of mind and on top of that there's other benefits as well, which we know, which it. Let's get if we get technical, you know you'll be your metabolism will be I think it's up to thirty to forty five percent faster than per usual if you work out in the morning. Right. So, you were at work. You're already burning fat by just being a you computer. You know, you less cranky, you less stressed. Yeah, you already got in the heart thing out of the way. Now you go home. You know you had a good dad work, you go talk to you, you know your boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, you know mother, whoever is going to be at your you know place of where you live, resid vote you guys. Yeah, she cooked, he didn know. Yeah, you're gonna feel better because now you have a you can chat to them, you know, because you're not going to end. You're going to have energy. Right, you're gonna have energy because you felt better throughout the whole day. You already got at work out of the way, and you go home. You feel better and you know you that means you can spend valuable time with your significant other or your parents or your family, or whatever it is. Right. So that's your relationship or social life increasing now in all that, right, you, while the time that you spend at the gym will also have a flaw in effect on your diet, because when you start going to the gym by default, hundred percent, you will start looking at you die. So, when you start looking at you died, you like, well, I'm going to stop eating out and I'm going to stop, you know, always eating McDonal's or see this, started eating this and on top of that, you saving yourself money by not eating out and you know you've cooking home cooked, healthy meals by just working out. How many problems did you just solve just there and then? That's I'm pretty much just one week exactly right, and you're very quickly you'll start to determine the difference between you have a good...

...meal, you have a decent fee and you just have a dirty, grubby me you know, maybe the night before before a training session, and your results measurable in terms of performance and certainly the way you feel in the gym. I know when I eat pretty poorly before I'm working out, I feel like I'm just trying to get through, just like walking through the mud, you know. You know if I've eaten clean beforehand, it's just like I'm hitting the starting blox and I'm going I'm not spend all this time getting rid of the crap, you know. Well, that's it. That's it, and I think so. Going on to that. So these are the benefits, and they did we only we merely scratch the surface. I think look on you would agree with me. These are only just a few benefits. Lift, lift, list or to lift. I guess. Yeah, that's it. There's a sensor community, there's being pride for on yourself, there's eating better, there's overall life, because you're looking at things and not as a Choll, but you're you're you know that you've done the hardest physical thing you can do throughout the day. So everything else, even though mentally might be difficult, Gould physically, nothing's going to be more difficult than what you've just done, either in the morning, the night before or at the gym. And even people that I talk to that say I don't really like exercise, I don't like to work out, when you get in the gym and slowly by slow, slowly, by Showley, we all kind of figure out what we like and not everyone's going to like doing heavy squats or get doing, you know, combat spalls or whatever else. are running on the treadmill like. Even to this day I hate running on the treadmill, but I fear figure out what I want to do, just like in all errors in my life, and then I just keep going, just day in and day just get a little bit better, get a little bit better, and it's just like paying dividends, you know. It's like it's like make a bet that you're a hundred percent guarantee to get a return on. You know, there's no risk, there's no chance of failure. You're going to get better every time you go to the gym. You're going to get better for shure. It's that. What's your fuck here? For sure, hundred percent. And I think I just want to you just said they're a lot of people say that they don't really care about going to the gym, and I think or it's not just a gym, it's movement, you know, it's exercise, right. I think we see Jim is because that's what we do, right, so we we go to the gym a lot. So physically I'm doing it exercise. I'm doing my physical activity here, right. Yeah, and I want to I want to attack that or, you know, because I always get triggered over these little items. You know, it's not that people say that they don't like going to Gymss, because people actually, you know what, you're right, people do say that, but I don't think that's true. I'm going to call people out here. I don't think that's true. I think it's just people they don't like to do in a place where they feel like they're not in control one percent, you know, Beau, they don't feel it's a new place, it's intimidating and you know, it's hard, and I'm not going to say it's easy. It's hard getting into special with you've got big Dat. I would Scott Rack out there to be it's but that Shit's too Dady, yeah, for me to this that. Yeah, you got big day. Were in the corner. You know, this is about what wreck? It's called Bassy, going hundred fifty kills, it's for sure, but the truth of the matter is you got to start some it right. Yeah, you have to that. What are you going to do it? You know, and it was that saying. That's what's the saying that goes tomorrow is the busiest day of all time. Tomorrow is where everything happens. Yeah, yeah, that's it. And when you're absolutely thinking tomorrow, tomorrow, or do it tomorrow, you've got to go through the hard shoot. You've got to try your best, you've got to experience the difficulties, because you're always just going to put it off. And I know that. I've noticed that. We study. I noticed that with work, like if I give myself a lap stay, if I'm working really hard, there will be certain days where you sort of ebb and flow and maybe I didn't try my absolute best, and that's okay it. But if you're ratitude is always like outdoort it tomorrow. Don't tomorrow, I don't next. When I feel better, pass is looking when I when I feel better, when I'm in a perfect space, because you've never been perfect place, because life is problems and you will keep having problems. Yeah, right, and so on that note, and I want to get a bit technical here and give some solid advice on to how to build a habit of going to gym. Yeah, to Obay. So this few physical activity, right, it few things. So they was this. So terrence's one of our good mates. It came up with a challenge, or didn't come up with an he found this channel challenge right. This challenge is the good bottom date. Sorry, it's a good block. It's very he's a good ye, right, is a good guy. I was actually going to I was gonna ask him to join the thing. But are for a sleep with anyone. For sure, you're say every words, but we're getting bother this. It was a sleep today, it was napping to work. Yeah, yeah, so he came up. He did this challenge. So the challenge goes for a...

...hundred days, and in hundred days what you do is each day you have to build a chain. Right. So what you do is you get yourself of whiteboard and draw a hundred boxes or like, you know, ten lines across, and Tulla's right, and you basically the the challenge is called hundred days of sweat. So what you do is the minimal amount of work required to break a sweat for a hundred days. So what you're doing there is right. So you you know, you go to the gym, if you break a sweat in five minutes, get out there. So good. In fact, I dare you to stay at the Jet Gym for five minutes. Yeah, you know, because people will get to the gym and they'll say, well, you know, I'm Morrior. The Gym Mars will fact mystl Bang out of five hundred Kiel leg breast, right, but yeah, blood, it's it's a true right. Yeah. So, you know, you go to the gym, right. So you go to the gym, break a sweat, get up, you know, you go for a walk, go for a run, just break a sweat and that's your day. Down Right. Do it for a hundred days. The reason I say that and the reason why that challenge works so nicely, it's because, and you know, you mark off each day when you achieve it, right, and the reason it works so, so nice I work so well it's because we're a we're visual will, visual creature, creatures, right, and we like to see something happening. Yeah, you know, like watching net, like watching Netflix, yeah, and watching all the episodes fight away. Yeah, we live. yeahful thing, that's right. We like seeing something happen. So what you when you cross that off, you have a sense of achievement and you can see immediate results by crossing that day off. Right, HMM, and be your building a habit. You're building a chain habit of, you know, breaking the sweat and in the benefit of so that's the benefit of it and you can get into it and there's no reason what I'm saying and I find, like you know, people will go when they say, okay, well, we're gonna start a challenge. Don't ruin the challenge by by going to buy a whiteboard and let then you know, you think about that for a few days and go by running shoes Holler. Don't do that. Just starting something. Piece of bipper into languages. Yeah, write in different language, because that's what people do. People say I'm going to go to the gym. They'll go buy a gym bell do'll go buy a gym bell bag or not at all. Stack of supplement people just start the gym they buy. Suffer its. I mean they're trying the by submits, they think, but I mean, I'll be perfectly honest, apart from the odd pre work out of here. And they're like, I take calcium because I don't eat dairy and I don't eat that food group in general, but I don't take any other supplements. Everything I get is through food and through physically exercise and there really isn't much of a need. Unless you even protein powder and like a lot of people like to take it because it's easy, is quick, you don't have to spend a lot of time cooking, but you don't have to eat a lot of meat to get your your protein, re climents of the day and supplements there. It's a beautiful thing, basically, is all that good stuff. But it's just like any industry. They're just selling Ya, they're just trying to make money. And most of it, oh, it was all a hundred percent at all, you know. So stay away to percent you can to be honest in the truth. We dolls, the the people were speaking to right now. They don't need supplements. If you need supplements, you already at the gym. Yeah, right, if you already at the team, you already ruled, if you already be already blue. Eight percent, ten percent body fat. Right, yeah, maybe you know. You know, sister, don't my supply. Second big boy, I used it for sure. I used like my sling. That's right. Yeah, you're the Big Day wore in the corner. You know. I said Coling. Hundred fifty guys. That actors. Right, yes, anyway, that's another. So he's huge. No one's got any idea. Who as what ify? He's a based. Does you have spotify? Yeah, he's got like now. He said we did really good. Shoutout Tory shout out. Yeah, so, you know, getting to the gym, it's going bad. You get into gym, like, you know, get into your physical activity and give it a go and see how you go. And, you know, stop doing things that will get you to the gym. Just go to the gym or like yeah, good, do it. Yeah, don't, don't, don't even sign up at the gym. Just go for a walk right, go for a run, you know, because those are the things that don't require motion. They require action, and this is, you know, this is I think this is going to be the theme of the whole podcast. You know, action is you have to take action. You know, mean jam. They are a hundred percent. It. Just cut out for a second. Not sure what was going on. Just finish your last point. They're sorry. Yes, I was just saying, you know, just get moving. Stop Planning going to the gym. Just go to the gym mode. Stop Planning physical activity, just go do it. You know, it's and I know this is. That was my first rant about how you can and get to the gym right and you can build a habit motly. Now the second one is, if it's all about...

...perspective, and you know, we were very lucky, and I was always very lucky because I knew when I don't go for the gym for even a week, a month, like, I feel very lazy and I feel like I need to get back there. There are a lot of people that don't have that same inkling and they might have it in other areas, but they don't have it towards visible exercise. Just look at it something that is every time you do it, you're getting better like this. Nothing negative about physically exercise. is nothing negative about taking the dog for a wall. There's nothing negative about you know, let's get it that way. You will never was a damn my wide work out. That exactly. Yes, yes, but when you have that seventh beer, you're going to be said, fuck what, I do that. Yeah, when you have that extra you know whatever it is like when you spend too much time on the computer, when you spend too much time on social media, like you always there's always a part of you, even if you suppress it, there's always that party that goes to all, man, I should have done that. You're never going to say, man, I shouldn't have done that last work out. I mean, if you blow you a fucking back out your flash for six months. That's another issue for another day. That's it. That every time you're making yourself better and you're making the people in your life better because you've got more energy for the people in Your Life, you've got more energy for the things you like to do in your life. And that physical when she starts with, strangely enough, exerting energy and it's kind a counterproductive in a way. You'd think that, you know, I've only got a limit amount of energy in a day and if I use too much working out, I'm not going to have energy for the rest of the day. No, it doesn't work like that. We eat so much food, particularly the foods that we eat. There's so many extra shit that's in there. We've got so much energy inside our bodies that a little bit of working out five, ten, fifteen, twenty minutes. Each time you work out you get a little bit better, you get a little bit longer, but every time you go you're getting a little bit better. You'll lose a little bit of body fat, your self confidence goes up, your whatever it is that you might be struggling with, it gets better with physical activity and it's a beautiful thing. Like we might sound harsh, or we're not trying to be harsh, it's just certain people. People need to be talked to in a way sometimes, and I like the way that you're coming across, but just do it. Do it for yourself, do it for everyone else. There's no excuse for sixty five, seventy percent or people in the country to be overweight. And that's what the numbers are. That's cold, hard facts. People lie. Numbers don't. Sixty five to seventy percent of people in this country are overweight like. That's bullshit, simple as that. You know it's doesn't that's sad. It's there's something is but makeically you know really is you in the you on the mark. There, not trying to be hoists, is trying to talk to people, and I want to encourage you. I want people, I want if you're listening to you need. If you don't go to Jim yet, just go to the gym. Do some physical activity. You know it will keep dot like a round type at going on. Yeah, is that a bikrophone your bike way? No, it's my fine up. So it's going to a Beautifu a second. You Stop Smoking joints of the House. It's a bit crazy about where, you know, yeah, little dusky. Yeah, what is actually? We all those fires are some serious shit. Yeah, so you know, it's yeah, just go to the get yourself moving, get you know, and what you said, what you said, what you said before about you know, when you spend too much time on social media, you may not think to yourself that you're wasting your time, but your bought. You know, you know what you're doing. You know, and I know our bodies. It turn that function off, but I know on iphones that I'd say probably android it doing the same thing on the same sungs. Yeah, it tells you how much time you spend a day, how much time you spend a week. Like that. It might be a hard truth, but look at those numbers, like look how much time you are spending on your phone. And if that's it, and that could be spent, five percent of that could be doing something physically active, for sure. And you know, it doesn't have to be a to our session at the gym. Now all it is is, you know, twenty minute walk in the morning. Yeah, fifteen minute walk at the night, at night before you go to sleep, or some of these mentals on top of the misses. That's what it's through. Is that expect you alive. It definitely does. It does, it's it does. It's physical activity. You get more. You Know Me, you'll be helping your relationship there as well. Most definitely your move it gets better. I'm in physically get better. You're going to run into leious issueses as you get older. I'm in. The Australian dietary guidelines recommend thirty to sixty minutes of PHYSICO activity three to four days a week. So that's about three hours a week. And the funny thing is like, once you start going and once you start to realize the therapeutic benefits of working out, good luck trying to stay in for less than an hour. Like it gets that point where like this will, that's happy place. This is well, that's it. That's the get a podcast going, get some music going, whatever it gets you going. I remember used to...

...listen to Bloody Eric Thomas, you know, Tony Robins, motivation, atomis, whatever. It was like so many good shit. Well, was the it was a saying the good. Yeah, when you when you want to succeed, it's bad. Is going to breathe. Then you'll be successful, then you'll be successful and and ultimately, like you've you've got to do things that are going to benefit you in the future and not everything is going to be perfect and whatever else. But you know, when you are thirty, forty, fifty years old and people running into a lot of these health issues, that one could certainly be avoided by diet, but could be, you know, when voided by a little bit of physical activity. It's almost shocking how little you have to do to get such great benefits. And it's a it's a bleed on effect, like most people. That's why most people, and I worked at a gym for a few months and the first three months were really difficult and that's where you'd see a lot of people quit or your lot to see a lot of people put their memberships on whole. But after that three months that get their mates in or they've been doing classes or they be coming in three days awake and said it too, and it's just like a beautiful bleed on effect and then all of a sudden three months goes by and you've literally change your life. You've changed sixty years for the rest of your life in three months. It's a beautiful thing it is and it's it has a it has a flaw in effect on everything. Right. So, yeah, what you're talking about before, right, so, you know you so it definitely flows into every single part of your life. You know, talk about let's talk about your love life for a second, because that I'd consider, you know, sexuality as part of sexuality, not that kind of sexuality, but, like you know, you're interimacy with your partner. Right, I would consider that as part of health and fitness. Right, it's one of those things things we all have in common for short strip. No, that's right. So sexual I there's a there's been some stats. I can't seem to pull the stats up at the moment, but I've seen stats about, you know, degreasing sex drive and all these things, and those things are also linked to obviousity and, you know, Lord to see stronger. You know, in fact, one of the things, magical things that happen. theygative self image as well, like people get negative self self only to be that comes from yea as the way they look. Right. Yeah, so let's talk about Testore Storm, right. So, distrosstron, for men at least. So let's talk about for men at least, and will talk about women in a second. Rd. So for men, destroystone is the hormone. Right. So that basically is in charge of you know, giving you you know, making you feel, you your mood, how strong you are. You know how much strength you can output and how so, how quickly your will. The reason? Say Reason, it says how much strengths you can output. Yeah, it goes into how could the male body was like her? The testy, sure to see engine, yeah, let's just well, yeah, or the petrol or the oil, yeah, right, the dipstick, that stick, right, and your sexual drive, right, your sperm count and all those things are related to store strong right. So just what are the reasons? What's the reason? What think causes distross from deduction, right, so, to testosterone reduction and scores by things like spending too much time on the computer. It is exactly related. You can look it up, right. You can search it up yourself. Spending too much time on the computers. And what was that called? Die? Yeah, poor diet, not sleeping enough, stressing a lot, bad body image, you know, bad, bad, bad self image, because it goes back to stress, sitting down for too long, believe it or not. So those are the things. For if you were to look at those things, what is it? What's in common? Like, what do you see? You know, what are the what's happening there? Those things are obviously absolutely opposite to movement, you know. Yeah, movement with life. Now let's talk about what helps the store stround growth. Right. So you looking at lifting weights. If it's directly correct, it colorated, correat Colorad it, all right, it right, if col yeah, with lifting weights increase. It increases it because, you know, you letting your body know, you're letting your mind know. You're the kind of person who requires a lot of strength, and you know so you need to move, exercise better, diet, moving, not spending enough time on you know, spending less time on the computer, you know, sitting upright. So that was another thing. So people. So being hunched over, like your posture is also so if your back muscles are strong, you're able to maintain a better posture, right, yeah, and you can. And by having a poor posture you actually decrease test awsome. By having a good poster you increase just also, now on sploy. Is that their slapped over the computer? Yeah, well, that's it. You know, if if you testore. Some are backtoorp back normal. So what's what are the benefits here? All you did was go to the gym and, you know, side working out started, you know, doing physical activity. Now it just also the side to go back...

...up. You start losing fat quickly. You know, you feel stronger, you have more energy, you have more sexual drive and you know, your postures already better as well and you feel better. You feels. It's a loop. So once you don't work out like Oh, once you do all those things, it's a loop you get stuck into and you keep going down because you'll have lower energy and you'll never go to the gym because you feel like Shit. It's a loop. It's a cycle that you will just keep going down it, you know, so a that's why I want to just emphasize on how important it is. That's what meant and you know, some similar gone for similar so that I'm not going to lie. The reason I spoke about men first because I know a lot about testoss on how that works. I don't know. I don't know a lot about the female side of the way, how hormones work, but I know a little bit right. I know I know that you know you're talking about futility, right, is correctly so. If you are if you have a high higher body fat, your for truit fertility goes down, right, you know, all the fertility goes down and you're you know, you're like the stuff for more headaches and those things. Like all those things are related and the same thing your mood. You feel better about yourself. You know, you have better posture and all those other things are the same. You know, you if you sleep more, you know if you move more, you feel better. It's a higher sexual drive and all those things. Yeah, that's right. So for the male body in particular, because tests are stone is a driving force and testosterone is in charge of building, is in charge of performance in particularly men. Like it's a little bit different with women and has a similar effect, like we're definitely as a twilar. So all this to able to build up robic capacity. But the part everything is the same, apart from the fact, apart from the fact that it's not just strosstrong. No, it is just as well, but it's absolute, exactly the same. Lending and the body is a big one. Yeah, like the ability to get rid of a lot of the shit, like a lot of things that the body needs help digesting, in getting rid of, if you're talking about like a monthly cycle as well, like physical exercise and lifting a heart rate. Raise your heart rate allows your body to speed up that process and everything that you do, naturally physical exercise, accelerates that and allows it to perform better. Essentially. Well, that's it. So those are again, once again, we just scratching the surface of the benefits here. You can make all podcasts. I'm just these topics alone. For sure. I thought that was the pot guys about all the benefits. Yeah, now, that's right, but I mean I want sure now, which for sure, you know, maybe actually, if we could, we could probably bring someone in actually another podcasts and talk about more in depth about female fitness. Yeah, he'll definitely think that. That probably be a later episodic and I'm thinking episode six or seven. Yeah, well, that's right. And we obviously have the knowledge of how it fit has a physically affected our lives and I'm more was a little bit hasn't to talk to in depth because I particularly as I'm in kind of a health science realm now and I understand articulating things in a in the correct matter, but also using correct language is kind of something that I feel a mental block with. So I do find it difficult to talk grow science. He, even though we are talking brow science. He. Well, if we can get solid in who has words it life experience from a female about working out in the benefits, that would be that would be for sure. And I think with the whole bro Sizes, what the point of it wasn't the technical technicalities of things? Right? Yeah, I don't know, I'm not. You know, I'm sure people can go on quote me on say well, no, you said thirty percent. Is Actually thirty one percent or forty? Yeah, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying you know the benefits. You know it for yourself. I don't even tell you how these things you know. You don't even need to know this. You don't even need science to tell you these facts. Actually, you people know already. You know. That's what I'm saying. Yeah, but the fact is people know because your body urges you to move. Why is it that every year some of everyone makes resolution of saying I'm going to go to the gym, well, I'm going to start start breaking out? Why? Is it magical one? Right, that's it. You you know, it within yourself. That's what you need to be doing. So, you know, yeah, make this, make it this your year, please, please, please. You know, get moving. Do a hundred day challenge, you know, do a hundred day challenge, go to the gym, Sun Up, a gym just so attended. Yeah, let's start, start with the tenda challenge. Just gets started. That's all that matters, getting started, you know, and you also better and you'll be so surprised at how quickly things that to move. It's upward spiral. Yeah, it's a way of what that you don't hear that phrase to often over the old upward spar no, you don't. It's incredible. Now there's another there's another thing you can do with health and fitness. Get yourself a gym, Butner, a fitness partner, right, yeah, acount, okay, and that's what I like about that, going to a gym. But that's what I have kind of growing to love...

...about the class aspect of it is there's other people in there, there's people that are pushing you, there's you know, there might be someone who's going to be there and if you're not, they're going to say, Oh, wait, way, that sort of thing. But when it's outside of your own realm, whenever it's not just your own bat, you tend to just find the strength to go. Okay, I don't really want to go, but such and such as going to be there. They're going to be there. All Right, I'll show my face. You know, I'll get you know you. It becomes about your pride, you know. And Yeah, everyone has their pride. So do everyone has that. Everyone has that. No matter who you are, your pride will always, you know, hold your accountable. It's not the people holding your accountables, you own pride, because you're like, oh well, you know, little Gary didn't show up. Yeah, I can gas together poor free will guess. You know, I'll get it in shop. You know, you'll think that these no one else will you even notice that you're not there. But you know, you will know, because you didn't show up, that you know. You know Jerry from. You know Jerry from anytime. Fitness is not thinking that, you know, get Gary gensure every top. If one the great what is it? And it's not just that, you know. I actually think, I think the reason one of the beautiful things about fitness was it was the fact that it it was something to do as well, apart from you know, you know. So I think about an adult life. Right. So what do they really do? Like once you finish your university or you know, I see, I see most of our friends and be friends and families will not family, mostly friends and our age group have mostly finished the degrees and working in full time job. Right, yeah, a couple of kids that you know, even if you know, starting check or two that. Sorry about that. It's fucking your sidewise weight. You know. Look, if let's let's say you know, you even you were going uni. Right, so what do you you do? What's your what's your what does your day consumer? Right, so you, let's say, what would most adult do our age? You know what I'm talking about. Age Anyway, from twenty through twenty twenty two through till twenty twenty eight. Right. Yeah, so, yeah, young adults. Right, what do you do? So you know, you have full time jobs. Most people would, I assume, would have full time jobs. If not, they'd be bouncing two jobs, selling at Unio. Have One job at the UNI. Right. So ends up being here, you have your engaged for at least thirty five hours and you still got a full come pacity. Right. Yeah, so you got your engage for thirty five hours a week. Now what are you doing for rest of your time? So it's question time. I'm assuming some people are going out on the weekends right now, which is good. You hang up with your friends? Socially? Yeah, the boys. So, yeah, social. Yeah, yeah, the voice. And Yeah, can't forget about that. Yeah, yeah, the barbary respect. It was let's die. We're gonna get kicked out every kid, we're gonna get you know. So I in that sense we're talking about. See You. You've still got time. What do you do now, instead of hanging out with your friends, going to you know, quick macas, run or doing other things? Scape your friend and, you know, guilt them into it and manipulate them into him whatever we have to do. People are good at manipulation. I've learnt that recently. People are very, very good at manipulation. Manipulate them into it, blackmail them if you have to, you know, bring out the bring out the secret that you know about them and tell them to go to the gym with you and let's start training and let's go to let's do let's do some fitness activity together, right, what will happen is you know you guys will started together. You guys were very quickly become competitive and you know you guys will start doing it and next thing you know, it'll be it'll be a thing that you guys do and not. It's social as well as, you know, physical. Right. Yes, it is great. We're all social beings by nature, and even the most secluded people that people are like to be themselves. There's always one or two here we have in your life that you do enjoy spending time with, and I think that's one thing that we had that was beautiful very quickly, is you may be stronger one area, I may be stronger in the other area. Will make each other stronger and there was always these competitive areas. It might have been pulled ups, modern push ups, box jumps, I can't report it was, but we found this middle ground where we could compete and that sense of competition was very healthy, but, my gosh, it was the most enjoyable right. There was all for sure, and these it's beautiful competition. Right. So you don't you don't stop, you just sometimes. You know, I used to be days I couldn't wait to get to the gym again, it was like as my days were wrapped around when the gym like, you know just what it was absolutely like. It's a safe it's a happy place. It's consistent, like you know where you're going to get every time you go and you're in control. Well, that's it, that's it, you know and and that's that's that's saying a lot, because people, we seek out comfort. Yeah, even though going to the gym is probably not that comfortable in a you know, we'd fucked up. Wait, it really is. Actually, every real is. Yeah, it's a safe heaven where you go...

...to the gym. The JYM's not going to lie to you, the gym's not going to cheat on you. You know, in fat the Gymus it's judgment free like this. Always going to you're going to run into personalities and you're going to perceive them as judging you. But people just look, People Watch, whatever it is. But if you're there, you're all collective. They're chasing the same thing. Trying to better yourself, so an improve an area of your life and and that sort of old adage. And I think that's one of the most common excuses I hear, or the most common the judgments ms that people have is about judgment. It doesn't exist as as someone who's been doing it for seven plus. He's like me, and you do and consistently it. Going to different gyms and different places like it. There are always going to be a few people just like you start a new job and there's one or two people that you just cart look, you know, you know, I people. You know. I'm actually going to see on this one, this note. Like, you know, if if you're if you're a female, right, I don't I'd understand that. You know, you have you know, you feel uncomfortable because you walk again, Jim, because gay man? Yeah, because, you know, still majority men at the gym, right, which is actually why is it that? Let's that's sad. Guys, come on, you know. Well, I wasn't like I cool girls everyone, you know, everyone needs to get get to the gym. You know, let's even that shit out. You know, that's a shawn, a certain James. I've gone to. It's even but yeah, for the most part it's yeah, lost. So seems why. But you know, I can see why. But at the same time there's two things that I want to say. Right, I've gone to the gym and Sweaty. God. I've run into some of the most you know, some beautiful women at the gym right, didn't part. You know, I would. I don't stop and stay and be judged them. I just keep working out. This is me telling you that I you know, I just never, you know, like Oh yeah, just acknowledgement as just another person. They're right, you wouldn't. You don't stop saying, oh well, there's goal there. I'm sure there's some creeps out there, but you know, look, it's isn't that anything like? Isn't that like anything else you know, everywhere? You know. So it shouldn't be like that. I'm not saying it's. Yeah, it shouldn't be like that, but you know, you shouldn't stop yourself from doing something great because you know, it's I know, I understand it's difficult, and actually I shouldn't say I understand, but I'm sure it's difficult. But you know, you should still do it. But in talking about not let's talk about men or boys. Right, what the fuck are you doing? Like, yeah, you're fraid off, you know, yeah, exact on Bro Yourself to the gym. What are you afraid of? You know, fucking yeah, drawn from the John from a type judging you because he, yeah, bench press more than you. fucking the truth is he's been doing it much longer than that's the only difference between you and him is he's been in there many more times than you have. Like you potentially could do that more than he got or you could do. We allever own strengths. Like it could be our legs, it could be our cutier vascular endurance, it could be fast which, it could be pull ups, it could be anything. We all have something they were actually good at. That's a beautiful thing about it. Like he find areas that you excel in and it doesn't matter what it is. That's it. And and honestly, to be honest, the word is become. I want to say, well, you know, people who going to hit people are going to hate me for saying this. I think people are humans, are starting to become a little bit nicer, very slowly. would be blasting to become nicer. So I think Jim's are pretty safe places. So if you feel if you have fear of judgment, you know just, you know, just tried to go to the gym. If, yeah, you know, the better get right. I don't get. It's better and that's it. It's right. If you can go to that, you can guarantee physically you're going to get better, but emotionally and mentally you're getting stronger too. It's not just the physical body. Their hand in hand your body or mind, which all they're all connected, for sure, for sure. And you know, you what you could look and, as I we're talking about physical activity. You don't even have to go to the gym. You can run in the park. Make it a make it, you know, breaking down into two pieces. So you know, we're go for a run for twenty minutes in the morning, twenty minutes in the harbor, and you good. That's your forty minutes of workout. You know, do some pushups, do some Air Scots and you know, start with that. And you walk. Yeah, take your dogs for a walk, you know, go for a swim if you need to live near the beach. Fortune Yeah, you know, your friend swim or do something. Get moving. This is this. I'm sure most people have heard of David Goggan's lock on. What a bit and he is. He's a great mantor. David Goggins is a is x navy seal x navy seal, ultra marathon runner. Marathon runner, ultra athlete, holds the world record for most amount of pull ups down consecutive consecutively over the most period of times, ordered for hours or twenty four, three thousand. You can something that's right, incredible, incredible beast right. So in he he talks...

...about he talks about this. He said you gotta get moving, right, you gotta, you gotta cat you gotta attack the hardest item first. You got to get moving, because once you start moving and once you start doing this hard activities or you what you find. You know, running another let's talk about running, right. He talks about running. Running is therapeutic. Once you know you struggling, you to breathe. You know, when you're gasping for air, that that's living. That's living. That's what living feels like, not when you just sitting on your computer, slushed over and you know, reply, replying to email from you know, Johan, you know John God right, you. That's yeah, that, I get get it. We have to do that. I do it. But you know, living is if you don't a living in or he likes, you know, David Gogan's called it you know, calcying your mind, becoming stronger. That's what you have to do. Your mind are brayer. You just have to get a get it done. Yeah, and when it's led by that physical activity, the exertion of doing something physical, you you build a stronger body but, more importantly, you build a stronger mind because you defeat that in a Ivach. Joe Rogan calls at the ENEMAS. You got a Conky R in a bitch, that little voice that generally is loudest first thing in the morning, IE, when you're called us, all levels are at its highest, when your stress is highest, that little voice that just keeps saying, like you can't do that, stay in bed, do it tomorrow, that sort of thing. Every time you physically whack that son of a bitch in the mouth, emotionally you're calcifying your mind. It getting stronger to and it's direct and it's some you know, whenever you wake up in the morning and good processing news butter on your alarm, it's want you to know, whenever you do that, what it is. It's your subconscious saying that you can't do it. Yeah, so basically, your own brain telling you that you're a bitch. Yes, it. Just just take that one in for a second. HOW DOES THAT FIT? Yeah, that hurt. That's bit mean, isn't it hurt? That's a bok mean, isn't it? Yeah, I mean asolutely truth, does it? And it's not just truth, something that other people do like that. Happens when you do that too, like where experience. That is for sure. We're not just saying other people do it, we dine. For sure. It's the truth. It's so true. But in saying that, you're also in control of the mind. Yeah, technically, yeah, sure, you know the brains telling you that you're a bitch, but it always forgets that you are in control. You just listen to it, you know, you just listen to it, but you can't stop listening to whenever you want, you know it's you know, David Goggan speaks about the fact that whenever you reach a limit, or whenever in life when you leap, reach a limit. Right, so he talks about a physical limit and applies to everything in life. Right, whenever you think that you have hit up Lateau, just know you only forty percent there, because your brain will tell you, because your brain wants to keep you safe. And your brain will say, or you know subconscious will say, now you've did you know, that's it, that's it, stopped there. That's good, you're good. You know. Just just think about this way. It's like, have you ever, you know, gone for I don't know if, depending on if you pill played competitive sports, lack on? Do you remember back in the days when we played a district cricket right, reps, right? So we used to, you know, be doing runs, but doween the polls ride and then, you know, all of a sudden will be like, all right, well, this is it, right, and then the and then the court would tell us to do another run, right, and we would have to. So all of the we did that energy come from. We just thought we couldn't do it, you know. Yeah, when you have to, you still do it. So doesn't mean like you this forty percent there. So in a place to all there is as well. If you think that you can't do it, just know that you you know, you haven't even hit forty percent yet. Yeah, that fight, fly or fight mechanism we have built into our brains. That is hard wired from our ancestors, who had to, you know, do whatever they had to do. How to kill animals and eat and run away from things and that sort of thing like that's s all part of our lives. Like we don't have to do that thing day by day, but our body, as much as we it's trying to do the right thing. It's trying to protect us. It does it does because a negative as well, because it is trying to keep us safe from all discomfort. And sometimes it's good to steer away from discomfort and sometimes on the other end of that discomfort is growth and is our potential and anytime anyone has exceeded in anything, it's on the other end of discomfort. No, it was, but that's that's a life truth that is guaranteed in all and any fields of life. That's it. You know, you look at you, you look at some of the greatest people that have lived. They've all had, always had, you know who who some of the gripes with? They've always had some sort of physical...

...activity as well, and they've all done that. They've gone through discomfort. Yeah, confert if you and this supplace to everything, right, doesn't it? Yeah, bus everything. Yeah, I mean, man, get moving, do it. Kept moving, baby, get moving us. That's pretty simple. Yeah, just kept moving do something. You know, in fact, if you you know, if you hear this podcast, and yet people have made it this far. You know. I think I'm going to I'm going to say people let us know that if we helped you make a move anyway, even get thinking, and I think before we sign out today, and you fucking went on too serious raditing today. It's sorry, actually it's not. I know. It's not about me take it over or you take it over. It's it's if you feel like you've got something to say, say and that's a bit I just get excited. That's as well. I mean I feel like this is maybe it's a beautiful thing, but before we go this and I think we should make a part to it this as well, and this is certainly our warehouse and we're going to continue to talk this way about this subject for the rest of our lives because we love it right and we could, I think, on the next episode we should delve into the mental health expect to it and how maybe get more specifically in tune of house affected our lives. But the the sort of one thing I want to oppose to you before we go, and that's a sort of bring it back from a personal nature, what are you doing physically in your life right now? So what is your training look like? What are your immediate goals, if you have any? What are you sort of doing in the gym right now that you're sort of working towards? Yeah, that well to me. Yes, sir. Yeah, okay, Y. Yeah, well, at the moment. So that's a hard one. So recently I have came back from a overcastree, but I was always sees, I was always these almost for a just under a month, and the tall training sessions that I could get in was eight training sessions. You know, I still got some sessions in. I've still went for a run's walks, but a total sessions of going to the gym. So I put put my body fat percentage went up a little bit and I was eating. I was eating food as well. I was trying different foods. So yeah, you're at all. Yeah, I was home hol days, you know. So came back. So at the moment I am sort of planning on losing some fat. I'm normally my weight that I sit on before I left was seven and seventy four. At the moment I'm seventeen nine killers. So first thing is I want to get down. Not that weight matters that much. You want to get down, but yours your obtaining way, right, you know. Yeah, my optimum eight is seventy four, seventy three killers. I want to get right back down there also, you know. So that's what I'm doing at the moment. I've so I'm meal prepping and doing all that stuff. So trying to eat healthy and so I've employed a new method of training at the moments recently. So what I found was that I've I was strong, and you know this. Look Nove always been very, very strong, right, and I was strong and you're been like my bench is my bench Max ad beans. strong. I'm going to tell you. Anyway, my Max bench like a hundred, hundred and fifteen killos for like six traps. Is what I was pushes like. I'm I feel I'm pretty stole, and that's at seventy three killers. So that's yeah, you know, for my weight, is pretty decent. Your Dead Bodys and on top. Yeah, and Buddyway, that's great, right, numbers. So, you know, pretty pretty strong overall. So there's what I'm saying. But I'm not flexible. Right, so I'm not. I don't have very flexible healthy muscles. My muscles are strong but not very flexible. So employed more into subside, employing more more real life training into my breaking out. So still doing the usual stuff. So, but what I've done is I've cut down the I saw. I saw lateral moment movements, isolectal movements. So I'm not doing, you know, I'm not doing things like, you know, machine, machine bench press that I would do for supplement isolation, didymain isolation exercises yet yeah, yeah, I'm not doing, you know, machine bench press, because I would do that. Do you know isolate my lord chest or something that, yeah, something you know. I'll do bench press, I do dumble bench press and I'll do pushups and I'll start doing, you know, any more dynamic exercises and so those kind of things. And I'm employing more kettle bells at the moment and I love getting US caliber cegarette're employing cattle bills at the moment and I'm doing some serious, serious, serious stretching and trying to get those muscles...

...to be no longer stronger muscles. Yeah, it's to be efficient, strong, fast, but also, yeah, that's the problem with doing the body building split right, like you sort of limit that aspect of it to get as big, to get as strong as you can in one certain move. Yeah, it doesn't ring or late any well and long as everybody in others of your life. And there's another small problem, because I do MMA right and, let's say, if someone it's some of the things that I could easily get out with because based on my flexibility, because you get into a more pain, but because my flexibility is limited, I you know, it hurts. Yeah, so like kicking and that sort of thing. Yeah, so what this is your mostly in when you get down in Jiujitsu, right. Yeah, yeah, as well. So you could have more flexibility, let's say, you know, Hanstring is a good example. Yeah, you could. You, yeah, in the guard position, right guard positions, and yeah, shuttle straight baby. So yeah, my my goal for this year for my fitness is to be the fit, healthy, at most healthiest version of myself I can be. I've ever been in all WAYRE's like in a complete, well rounded yeah, rength. Yeah, last history, truth bet all. I'm a mean for superhuman. I'm getting technical. I'm talking about by the end of this year. I want to be complete, superhuman. Want to be strong. Yeah, fast, into have stupid endurance, flexible. That's my goal. Yeah, and your conflict, like your confidence is based on you've been there or you've done it before and you know you can do it. You just got to put your energy, in your focus into it and you really want to do it too. Like it's a different thing process because it's a longer process and it's less about and explosive movement and or and how much can I left? It's a slower burn, but it's it's it is the most important. Well, I think it's a more of a next level for me, to be honest. I want to see what else can I do? Do you know what's else? What's my limits? Am I just the guy who bench presses more and, you know, leg presses, or am I or am I an athlete who can push the human limits? Yeah, that's that's my question. It's beautiful. What about you? What are you? What's your goals and aims, and what are you doing with your physical activity, physical health? Yeah, we come from and a cut from the same clock off in a lot of ways, and we sort of run in the same issues. A couple of years ago I had a real issue with dedication. I couldn't quite figure out what it was, but it was just training in that matter was like that body building, split chest on Monday's, back on Tuesdays, legs and Arabs, whatever else, and it's a beautiful thing, but it did run a course in my life and and I probably spent close to two years maybe training once or twice a month and and I thought I've just got to change, I've got to do something else, and for me that really started doing a martial arts so kick boxing one gave me like an outlet to feel like I was learning and doing something new. But it's certainly undid a lot of the things that we did when we first started training. So like we did warm up, we didn't stretch a lot and we just went in and try to lift and move as much as we could. But back is still recovering from that. Yeah, my shoulder, my hamstrings definitely are getting better, but they're still recovering as well. So for me right now I'm sitting on seventy seventy one kilos, so I'm really happy with my weight and I feel like that something we can I probably need a little bit more time to talk about and sort of the process and mental health was the real driving force for me. But I'm at my ideal way now. I'm pretty close to my injured like the insurance that I'm happy with. So I'm work out. So going well, they're going for a long time. So now I'm just really focusing on my technique, my keep bossing technique. My goal is to hopefully have a kickboxing out within the next twelve months and might be two years, and that's really just to experience that so I might made guy. I guess is to just get better at kickboxing. My kicks better, my insurance better, my punch is better. You know, my awareness of what I'm doing is to get better and just to just to get more flexible, as you said, better range of motion and every time I work out I feel like I can just go in and get going, you know. So it's like a lot of stretching. I probably got to start doing go, go to. I think that's one thing. I need to put my finger out and start doing that once a week. But yeah, just force myself. One of my goals right now, and I guess my news resolution was to stretch for twenty minutes a day, and not just stagnated stretching where you're just sort of stretching your hands drings. You're stretching your arms, stretching a shoulders, but you're doing mobility work, so you're trying to loosen up your hips, you try to loosen up your shoulder joint, so you're doing more than just the muscle, but you're doing the entire body at once. So it's very similar to yours. And, more importantly, it's knowing that I'm just tapping into my potential now and...

I'm excited for how far I've come. Like I lost a lot of weight, I've gotten into the best shape of my mouth, but I feel like I've hit twenty percent. Like I my potential, my full potential, is still a fair way off. It's getting maybe exactly in. The reason why I know that's the case is because I know how much effort I've put in and how much effort I have left to give, and I haven't even scratched the surface. And that's a beautiful thing and I'm so excited. But in the same time I'm also proud of where I've come. I don't want to forget how far I've come, because that's slippery slope. Is One fucking you know, one day away at all times. But that's it. Yeah, it's just about getting into the gym five to six days a week, every week, no excuses, no if a. But if I can't make it of the gym, I'm taking the dogs for a walk. I'm keeping moving, I'm getting better, my diets getting better. And here I go, I'm starting on a round. But it's just doing something every day to get better and better and then three months, look where I am, in six months, look where I am, and then by the end of the year, as good as I feel right now, by the end of the day, I want to be a shadow myself, like I want what I am to be now to be nothing beared to what I am at the end of the you know. And that's it. I'm just sweating thinking about it like that. Motivation is a buiful thing and that drive is a beautiful thing. So that's fucking awesome to hear that we're on the same page, hundred percent, hundred percent one together. So, you know, look, all bes the good, there's old goals and you know, we are suppose going for the same thing. You know, it's doesn't stop. It just starting at the gym. You know, it's always keeps going and going. You just keep lettling up. Yeah, that's it. That's what we talked about. Goals aren't a thing, it's progression. It's the real thing. It's what you yeah, what you achieve and what you learn about yourself. And you know, my goal twelve months twenty, twenty, four months ago, two years ago, was where I am now. But now I've reached my goal, it doesn't even feel like it was a goal. It feels like I was just one part of a long book. And that's what happens. Like you just keep growing and you getting better and it's a slow bill, but you just keep tapping into that potential. And we've all got our own potential in certain areas. And, yeah, it's bleeding into every other area of my life, like this something that I want to share with everyone, but I've got to be patient with and I feel like that's going to impact my life massively. But it's making me a better person, you know, and and it all started with getting myself back into better shape, thinking more healthily, eating more healthily, and now disguise the limit, literally or not the limit? Who knows what's UPING. Let's ear there, guys. Now were deep makes a path through that one. Well, you know, let's I think. So we should probably wrap up. So we had taught when I would all minutes. So let's go to one hour fifteen minutes. Right, I can, then we can e up, and so let's let's pick out that. Yeah, I apparently I can talk. Now you can't. Man, it's a beautiful thing and that's what we always were speaking about with a podcast, and it's just about speaking from our heart and talking to each other as well, like just relaying information like this is kind of our this is you know what, it's been a long time since even me and you have had this conversation with each other and we've talked. We haven't talked this long since, you know, for years, and I think that's what makes a really good podcast. It's just talking to each other, trying they help other people too, but more importantly helping each other, and people can hear that. You know, people, people. It's not just US talking shit, but it's US talking from the hearts. Well, that's it. In a year or two, or maybe three or maybe five, years will listen to this podcast and will say, okay, I'm going to go to the gym. Yeah, exactly right, harder, but I'm gonna go to with you. Yeah, it was, it was. That's IT started wrapping up. So you know, and I'm going to speak. I'm going to start speaking for both of us, and then you can take over. Look them. Yeah, now, all good. I suppose only to end this note from the bottom of our heart, right, we really with your mother. Whether you're a dad, whether your sister, brother, son, girlfriend, boyfriend, girl, boy, doesn't matter what you identify yourself as. We all in our bodies are designed same in a way where we need physical activity. Get yourself moving, get yourself out there, start walking, start running, go to the gym, jump of jump of bridges with a rope. What are they go? Bungee jump, you go, but those Guy Dun go for walks, go for runs on the beach, go for a swimming. Get moving. You'll feel feel great looking. You can take over from now. Yeah, now, that's it. Man, I don't really have much more to say apart from that. Just do something every day that you that you feel might be difficult, but you know that's going to be better for yourself and that all compound that or snowball, and then, slowly but surely, you'll get better. Are you can even live in a state of like men, I wish I could do this. So I wish I could do that. or You could do it, and you could. You could.

You know you could do it. You could become that person. And it doesn't stop at snowballs. For the rest of your life and mentally you'll get better, physically you'll get better and it's a beautiful thing. Life will become a beautiful thing. It won't become a sure to wake up every day. You'll be excited to get up every day and that's something that I found over the last few months and I didn't have for a long time. I missed for a long time and now I have that. I don't want to let it go and that's what life s all about. Livings. It's deep, man. That was pretty deep. Well, thank you so much for people who have made it this one luckly.
