Recently World’s Strongest Man competitor Robert Oberst guested on Joe Rogan’s podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience,  and while the conversation hit a wide range of topics including deadlifting and (of course) psychedelics, it also covered veganism. Rogan regularly interviews proponents of both vegan and carnivore / omnivore diets, so when Oberst said there are no vegans in strongman, Rogan knew there were exceptions.

The sympathetic nervous system prepares the body for intense physical activity and is often referred to as the fight-or-flight response. The fight-or-flight response is the human body’s automatic reaction to a perceived harmful event, attack or stressful situation. Our ancient ancestors would trigger this response if they were about to be attacked by a wild animal or face some natural disaster, but in the modern world we trigger it continually all throughout the day in our family life, work life, trying to meet project demands etc. The human body doesn’t know the difference between these different situations and the sympathetic…
10 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR ENERGY 1). Drink Fresh Vegetable & Fruit juice; losing the fibre in vegetables and fruits makes it far easier for your body to absorb and digest the other nutrients.

But don’t think lying in bed for hours on end is…

  I generally don't make New Year's resolutions as I live with the philosophy that every day is filled with infinite opportunities to improve how we live.

I constantly encounter people who put health, fitness and nurtition very low on their priority list behind work, family, social commitments etc.   It's a strange thing that human's do, and I find it really sad thar for a lot of people to start making changes it has to take a rapid deteriation of their…
“Self-confidence, poise, consciousness of possessing the power to accomplish our desires with renewed lively interest in life are the natural results of the practice of Contrology (Pilates).” - Joseph Pilates, (founder of Pilates)  “The goal of training is not to change how the body looks, but to improve how the body moves.” - Gray Cook, (Co-founder Functional Movement Systems)  For quite some time now I have been incorporating functional movement and training as well as pilates into the workout routines I provide for my clients.

  Robyn Chuter www.empowertotalhealth.com.au You’ve heard the saying “You are what you eat” a thousand times. But have you ever thought about what the trillions of bacteria that inhabit your gut might be eating, and how this impacts on your health? Your gut microbiome is comprised of roughly 500-1000 species of bacteria, whose combined numbers run into the trillions, outnumbering your own cells; along with fungi, yeasts, archaea and viruses.  In case you’re feeling a little grossed out by the idea that your insides are teeming with ‘foreign’ life forms, consider this: even your own cells contain bacteria DNA. The tiny mitochondria inside…
