Ben Esgro is todays special guest as we dive into the world of training periodisation. For years body part splits have been the norm, but should we be doing something different? Ben and I discuss the pros and cons of lifting for strength, and lifting for hypertrophy, and where the line is drawn for different people. We also discuss Ben's journey, programming for Layne Norton, getting blood work done, the differences between males and females lifting, training twice per day, occlusion training, and what to do when at a powerlifting meet.

A BIG Q&A episode with the amazing Athletic Fox, nutrition, diet, IIFYM, posture, we cover lots this week. Amy asks the question, what happens if we have to eat a highly restricted diet - where can the imagination and variety come from, Ajay raises the point of posture and it's importance in both daily life, movement, and training, Jonny considers his next diet move and asks for our help based on his diet history, and Tom seeks advice on his diet where it seems to not be working, so we help him with the details to have a future of progress including a good rant on the application of IIFYM.

The man behind Stop Chasing Pain, Perry Nickleston, joins me to talk about movement, pain, stability, and why we live for years with the same issues we've always had. We talk about Perry's journey, what 'Stop Chasing Pain' is all about and it's core message, why the term 'movement never lies' is so important and why movement needs to be our assessment tool, his assessment process, how to train stability when there is no mobility, the inclusion of mobility in training programs, and getting over the mental side of injury.
