For today's Q&A session, Ashleigh and Ben are tackling your queries and questions and throwing in some advice and ranting for good measure! They discuss stretching, bodyweight set points and the importance of beliefs. We also get to hear about Ben's stay in Colombia and why he is having such a great time planning for next year. A sizeable portion of today's show is spent considering how much our beliefs and long term goals affect our results, with both Ashleigh and Ben strongly arguing Christmas, how much he hates all the lights and the way in which he is attempting to hack the festive season this year for his and his family's benefit.
