Episode 042: Addictions and Peak Performance with Nick Elvery


Episode Notes

Nick Elvery has a fascinating background. He’s now a ‘Peak Performance’ coach for CEOs and spends his time helping people make positive changes in their life. Nick has had his share of problems. His father was very unwell with MS and Nick used drugs as a coping mechanism. He had many years of addiction to drugs and alcohol. We talk about those: ketamine, ecstasy, cocaine, and cannabis amongst others. Nick ended up using crystal meth in Cambodia before he bottomed out and got himself sorted. He understands a lot about how we are the sum of our habits and he has lots of valuable thoughts on how we go about addressing the core factors that make up our identity and make real changes.

Episode 041: Strength Training for Runners with Jason Fitzgerald


Episode Notes

Jason Fitzgerald is a runner who has seen huge changes with strength training and helped many achieve results through his coaching and training. He’s been running the strengthrunning.com website since 2010 where there are tons of resources. He found strength training helped him recover from a serious ITB injury and he’s studied it in depth and put it into practice. He knows all about strength and conditioning for runners. We chat about why you would want to incorporate strength training – it will give you performance improvements but it will also make you more resilient with fewer injuries. We also talk in detail about some of the myths around strength training (and you’ll get plenty out of the chat even if running is not your bag). Strength training is an option for everyone: men and women.

Strength training has definitely been one of the biggest changes I’ve made in my physical activity over the past few months.There’s great evidence strength training is one of the single best ways to reduce the risk of injury. And some of the benefits and underlying gains are not just about being stronger: it can help you run more economically, improve coordination, and you’ll get wider health benefits as well. You don’t have to life weights either: you might do a bodyweight strength routine a couple of times per week and that will be tremendously beneficial. And, as we discuss in the podcast you are not going to build big muscles and bulk up with the compound, multi-muscle movements runners will be doing.

10 Feb Edit: if you downloaded this episode to your podcatcher and can’t hear my side of the interview then don’t throw out your headphones… I managed to mute my side of the audio in the final edit. It’s been fixed so just delete and re-download and all should be well.

Episode 040: Alan Flanagan, The Nutritional Advocate


Episode Notes

Alan Flanagan is a passionate advocate for science-based nutrition and communicating nutritional science. He has very clear views in a host of areas that could completely change how you think about nutrition: he lingers on the middle class fetish around carbs and fat; the need to change energy availability in the environment and food culture; the role of mandatory regulation on public health; and he jumps into one of his big passions on how nutritional science needs to engage on its own terms with the evidence and not get pulled into an RCT model that is inherently not applicable to food. Oh, and he’s also a lawyer: he knows how to structure an argument. Enjoy.

Episode 039: Lifestyle Medicine with Dr John Sykes

Episode Notes

Dr John Sykes is a GP and a Trustee and Director with the British Society for Lifestyle Medicine. We talk about the lifestyle medicine movement, nutrition, healthy lifestyles, and how we can try to ensure that lifestyle change is not simply a middle class aspiration that worsens health inequalities. We range across a lot of different areas that are all about lifestyle medicine: physical activity and finding the right movement for you; HIIT and the evidence; fad diets and polarised views; orthorexia, Instagram; and how to help people change through motivational interviewing.

John emphasises the importance of an evidence-based approach to lifestyle medicine in areas and he explains how it can have wider ‘upstream’ benefits to help across all societal groups.

Episode 036: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with Dr Michelle Swainson

Episode Notes

What is the evidence for high intensity interval training (HIIT)? Is it worth doing and is it safe? I used to be a bit of sceptic about HIIT but strong evidence is emerging and I talk through the topic with sports and exercise scientist Dr Michelle Swainson. It’s a good lesson for me in recognising when bias is creeping in rather than actually basing my views on the evidence. The evidence is compelling in many groups now and it turns out I’ve been doing HIIT all along anyway! We also talk through measuring obesity, the limitations of BMI and the best method to use.

Episode 035: Colour Blindness and Pink Elephants

Episode Notes

I am colour blind. I don’t have the necessary red cones and in this episode I talk about my experience of being colour blind and how to affects me. From my early days of colouring in the sky purple and painting elephants in pink to my general feebleness as a cricketer there are several ways colour blindness has had an impact. And my career in bomb disposal never got off the ground… I cover the basics of the condition, how it is inherited, how it changes how I see blood, and the neat little Jedi mind trick I’ve realised I can now do.

Episode 034: Autumn Update and Reflection


Episode Notes

I have an update this week on my own activities and it’s a bit of a chance to reflect on some interesting episodes over the past few weeks. Episodes looking at the benefits of physical activity on mental health, suicide, Parkrun and the concept of ‘Zettelkasten’ have had a real impact for me. I also talk about the research paper on kinesiology that I promised to cover in this week’s Journal of Blokeology newsletter.
