Welcome to episode 27 of Coach Taylor Radio!
Intermittent fasting, are kettlebells a time waster, anterior vs. posterior training, supplement store staff, BMI, death of squats and other news
This is the longest episode yet – and I am hoping that tides over all of the listeners who want me to make more frequent podcasts!!!!
On this episode:
Intermittent Fasting (43:00)
What it is, why I am experimenting with it myself, and where to get more information about it. I have been interested in this nutritional pattern for some time and the research behind it is strong.
I always feel I need to test things before recommending them so I am on a 1 year trial.

Conversations with a supplement store (34:00)
Take what you hear at the supplement store with a grain of salt (whey protein?). They are not there to serve YOUR interests. Go over a recent interaction I had with a store manager because it is a great example of what the stores are REALLY after.
Are kettlebells a waste of your time (26:00)
Spoiler alert. No. They most definitely are not! Here is why I believe everyone should be doing them, which exercises are most important, and how they will protect you from the evil winter task of shoveling snow.
Anterior vs. Posterior training (20:50)
Why you should be training your backside more than your front side. Your long term health is very dependant on this!
News overview (1:55)
Taking a look at:
-The death of squats
-The BMI has mislabeled many healthy people
-Is the calorie a useful measurement
-Do I base my comments on research or personal observation?
-Why poor research has led to the belief exercise isn’t that important
Thank you all so much for taking the time out of your busy life to listen. I will continue to strive daily to bring you the best, evidence based, health and fitness information out there that is free of the usual bullshit and rhetoric found in the industry!
