All about cardio, No more squats, Stable surfaces, 1200 calorie diet, barefoot is best, the Food Babe
Welcome to episode 20 of Coach Taylor Radio. 40 glorious minutes of fitness and health information coming your way!
This week is a bit longer, why? Well because people keep asking me to put more info into the podcasts. Lol – yes – I get lots of requests for more info. So here you go – more info!
There will be links posted in this blog to anything I mentioned on the podcast!!!!
This topic has been coming up a lot recently. It isn’t weird for this time of year as most people have come to the sudden realization that they will be wearing a bathing suit in public in the next few months.
Cardio is hugely misunderstood – here is what I talk about this episode:
- what is cardio
- cardio isn’t the best way to lose fat
- cardio does more harm than good
- cardio isn’t that great for you cardio
Listen in to find out more!
Back Squats and Bench Press
This is always a hot topic. On the facebook page there has been a good discussion on these exercises and in the podcast I talk about why I don’t do them.
I believe that both of these exercises are sacred cows of the fitness industry and it is time to re-examine how useful they are for most people!
Stable vs. Unstable Surfaces
BOSU balls and all manner of other equipment took off in popularity over the last 15 years. But are they really worth it? Should you be training on an unstable surface?
I don’t believe you should and I chat about why!
1200 Calorie a Day Diet
Here you go! The secret to fat loss! I discuss the 1200 calorie a day diet!
I am a staunch advocate for training barefoot. I truly believe that almost everyone should be barefoot as often as possible! This section I discuss why you should be training barefoot as well as the best way to transition to barefoot training!
Here are links to the news article and the video that I mention in the podcast:
How the Feet Run The Show – The Globe and Mail
A great way to start strengthening those important foot muscles! Video from my physiotherapist!
The Food Babe
I had never heard of this Food babe person until a recent rebuttal from another blogger calling herself Science Babe went viral.
Let me tell you – the Food Babe is a shining example of the dangers of celebrity taking over from science. This person SHOULD NOT be allowed to dispense advise.
But hey, she is on Dr. Oz so she must be a reputable authority, right?
