We open today's show discussing some experiences we've had with clients we've trained over the years. We focus on two different barriers people most often experience - motivation and stress/time management. We explore some interesting new fitness studios popping up that feature personalized stretching sessions with "flexologists." This leads us to ask the question: does passive stretching actually do anything? What does work? Lastly, we re-visit an old topic of plant-based diets with a study that shows a link between depression and plant-based diets. We re-iterate the importance of getting regular blood work done when adopting fringe dietary protocols and Scanny shares some tips when navigating the healthcare system as it relates to these tests.

We tackle some tough listener questions today. 1. What is VO2 max? Is it a good measure of fitness? How can I improve it? 2. Does stretching actually do anything to improve functional range of motion? What is a better alternative? Does having someone "stretch you out" help at all? 3. How do we feel about drastic weight loss as a result bariatric surgery? Does it "count" as a success story if someone didn't do it the "old fashioned" way?

Listener Questions Is Exercise Addiction a real thing? Should I be concerned? What's the deal with cracking joints? How to crush food prep with a pressure cooker.

Have no fear, Matt and Sabrena are back to recording the show in the same room! Food Labels We examine a recent piece of legislation that was shot down by Congress. This legislation aimed at changing food labels to make them more understandable and to reflect the nutrition needs of modern Americans. Counting Macros We dive into the general public's obsessions with "counting macros" and ask ourselves: Isn't that just how we should eat all the time? Our conclusion is that Social Media can be used for making sustainable ways of eating popular just as much as it can make fringe diets popular - you just need shirtless young people. Help us Out!

Sabrena and Matt open today's show discussing their views on Electronic Dance Music and Gluten. Sabrena shares a study about how easy it is to eat extra calories in the up-sell process at grocers and restaurants. We wrap up the show re-framing the way we view life's stressors and how we can adjust our outlook to mitigate the health problems associated with increased levels of stress.

This week we ask the question: If you could completely transform your health, physique, and fitness in one 2-hour absolutely grueling workout and have the results last a lifetime - would you do it? A 4-hour workout? A full day? Next, we chat about how to track the calories that you eat after midnight. Lastly, we answer a listener question about pasta noodles with zero carbs. Thanks for listening, sharing with a friend, and leaving us a review!
This week we're talking about doing food prep on a tight budget. In a broad sense, we're discussing ways that you can be more efficient with your time and money. We both strongly believe that preparing your own whole, healthy foods should actually cost LESS than packaged food, eating out, and "Health Foods." Please note the very distinct difference between Health Food and healthy food. Here are the highlights: 1. Buy foods in their individual, whole form NOT the packaged version. 2. Consider your food budget all things you eat or drink. 3. Avoid recipes - view meals as their macro-nutrients (fat, carbs, and protein) and prepare accordingly.

This week we return to our discussion about vegetarianism and veganism. This time we ditch the criticism of fad vegetarianism coming off the heels of the scientifically suspect documentary "What the Health" and approach it from a more helpful stance. How can those opting for plant-based diets from a religious and moral standpoint maintain an optimally healthy intake of macro- and micro- nutrients absent the consumption of meat? After looking through some research we arrive at the conclusion that plant-based diets are: 1. Not inherently healthy 2. They CAN be healthy, and 3. It is harder to adopt a healthy plant-based diet than a healthy omnivorous diet, but it can be done. Thanks for listening, sharing with a friend, and leaving us a review!
The show opens with a discussion about the most effective marketing tactics in the fitness industry. This includes short "challenges", talking about "toned" muscles, and unfair targeting of women in fitness marketing. We spend the bulk (pun intended) of this show talking about the science of muscle fiber types and how (if at all) one could train for "bulky", "toned", or "long and lean" muscles. We do a thought experiment - why do we believe that building muscles in an unweighted squat is somehow different than training muscles in a weighted squat? It all comes down to genetics, diet, and training volume. Be informed, folks.
Look out - our jimmies are rustled this week. But, before they're rustled, we answer the question: in what order should you do your resistance training and your "cardio"? Should you lift first and then do cardio? Or, the other way around? Or, does it matter at all? Sabrena also shares with us some recent dietary changes she and Billy have made as it relates to counting their macros. We quickly shift to re-visit the recent Netflix documentary "What the Health" that is causing quite a stir. The show wraps up with a discussion about hormones and whey protein.
Sabrena and Matt open the show recounting some tales of uncomfortable airline travel and "enhancements". They nerd out for a few minutes on Season 7 Episode 4 of Game of Thrones (minor spoilers). Matt and Sabrena wrap up the show with a serious discussion about feeling uncomfortable in new situations. Matt shares his first experience in a yoga studio to illustrate the feelings. Thanks for listening, sharing with a friend, and leaving us a review. If you have any questions you'd like us to address on the show, please reach out to Tonos Radio on Facebook.
Joined for a second week in a row by Professor Billy, we get really nerdy. We cut right to the straight dope with a discussion about expertise - and what it means to be an expert in a field. We’re looking at you, Food Babe. We talk about the danger of supposed experts who loudly report the benefits of a diet or workout that worked for genetic outliers. As we discuss, the exceptions to rules tend to be the loudest voices. We look at a study posted on our Facebook page related to protein supplements vs. whole food protein and discuss whether or not the results should affect our behavior. Thanks or listening, sharing with a friend, and leaving a review!
We're joined by Professor Billy to discuss everything from Star Trek to carbs. We learn Billy's views on Bob Dylan and a little more about his band Houseproud. Matt talks a little about his recent vacation in Mexico and how it relates to longevity in fitness and health. We relate this to "crash" diets to get ready for a wedding or vacation and how they, ultimately, lead to a much greater increase in fat after the "event" for which one is dieting.
