We're talking basic gym etiquette, safety, good behaviour and accessibility. Know someone who doesn't tidy up? Send this to them to see if we can change their minds.

Taking Time to Appreciate Your Efforts and Avoid Burning Out

Taking Time to Appreciate Your Efforts and Avoid Burning Out

Today it's just me, and I'm talking about how you can learn to appreciate your efforts and take better stock of whatever you're up to. It's hard to stop and be kind to yourself, especially when it feels selfish, but we're going to learn a few ways that you can do that and the reasons why it's important to do so.

Andy Tsang: Building Relationships, Never Settling Down and Thinking for Yourself

Andy Tsang: Building Relationships, Never Settling Down and Thinking for Yourself

If you've ever heard me express an opinion on something relating to training, there's a strong chance that that opinion was inspired by one of three people: Brian Shaw, Mark Rippetoe or Andy Tsang. When I signed up to do my Level 4 in S&C, I never expected it to have quite as positive an impact on me - Andy's massive base of knowledge and ability to use passion to make you think about facts and methods in your own way is unparalleled. He knows exactly when to push and exactly when to step back and learn for yourself, so when we started chatting about the possibility of recording an episode together, I immediately got excited for the conversation ahead of me. I hope you find this chat as valuable as I did. Andy's been a huge influence on the development of my career, and I hope that bringing his words to you can help with your training, work or even just a training session or two.

(I Think) The Nature of Motivation is Changing, But What Can We Do About It?

(I Think) The Nature of Motivation is Changing, But What Can We Do About It?

The world has changed a lot in recent years, but we've had no help to deal with it. This year especially, we're seeing record lows in motivation levels across the board. I think I have some ideas on where it's come from and how we can deal with it moving forwards.

Jo McAlister of Reset My Stress: Mindset, The Unconscious & Training

Mindset is a word you hear thrown around a lot in fitness, and it can be a bit of a cliché in a lot of cases, but I got Jo McAlister of Reset My Stress to come on the show and talk about how mindset can be related to the unconscious mind, and through certain ways of thinking, you can alter it and make it work for you.

Thank you!/Season 2 Plans & Preview

Thank you!/Season 2 Plans & Preview

This is the 10th episode of season 1 of the All-Strong Podcast, and while it's not a topical one, it's one that thanks you for your support and lets you know just how much is waiting for you in season 2. There's a ton of material still to cover, but I'd be doing a disservice if I didn't secure some guests to talk about them on the show alongside me. I'm really excited to get into all the topics you've suggested, and in case there are any on the list that don't cover your questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know what they are! Thanks so much for your support so far; I can't wait to bring you more in the next batch of episodes!

Why Does Everyone Need to Be Stronger?

Why Does Everyone Need to Be Stronger?

This week it's another question from me while I think about getting together with some guests for questions that have been asked over the past while. We're talking strength training as always, but more specifically the benefits of strength training and why they're totally necessary for everyone, not just athletes. We're also touching on the basics of what you need to get stronger in the first place, and how many people try and avoid them, for whatever reason.

How Do I Overcome Training Plateaus?

How Do I Overcome Training Plateaus?

Fun fact: this episode is the first one I've managed in one(ish) take!

Anyway, we're talking about reaching training plateaus, and how you can overcome them with the use of stimuli and programming. Stuck in a rut and not making any progress? Listen along to find out what you can do. It's normal to hit plateaus in the gym, but dealing with them properly will make or break whether you come out the other side and keep getting better.

What's Better, Heavy Weights or Light Weights?

What's Better, Heavy Weights or Light Weights?

We're going after a big one today! Not only that, we're also looking at some emerging science on the topic to completely change your perception of it at the same time!

Basically, rep ranges for muscle growth are changing, and the old repetition continuum is being thrown out of the window. If you're looking to train hypertrophy, then there's some new science on the block, and I'm here to explain it to you.

Oh, and if you want to get stronger? Nothing's changed. You still have to lift heavy. Sorry!

Fitness & Lifestyle, and the Importance of Good Coaching (with Steve Lazars of Advanced Perspective)

Fitness & Lifestyle, and the Importance of Good Coaching (with Steve Lazars of Advanced Perspective)

Guest alert! This week we've got the pleasure of hearing from Steve Lazars, a professional cricketer, life coach and mentor. Steve just launched a new lifestyle mentoring project called Advanced Perspective, which you'll be able to check out in this week's notes (al-strong.com). He's helped me massively when it comes to analysing the angles of my business which I could focus more on growing, and I'm sure he could do a huge amount for you too. This week's discussion is based around using fitness to shape a good lifestyle, but we also talk about the importance of (GOOD) coaching and how professionals in every industry should be respected for their knowledge and ability to enhance your life. As always, head to all-strong.com for anything you might need, and don't forget to keep submitting questions!
