Despite Coronavirus hype, Ben and Ashleigh take off their masks to have a great conversation in today’s show, covering a broad range of topics. They kick it off with Ashleigh’s exciting new project, an organ meat cookbook, and then get into the relationship between one's genes and their ideal diet. Cognitive associations with nasty foods or diet types can cause complications and so it's important to set up positive mental connections with healthy things to eat! Of course, Ben and Ashleigh couldn’t get on the air without weighing in on Coronavirus but luckily Ben shares a power pack of vitamins that would make the sickness feel like nothing more than a common flu to anybody with a healthy immune system! Next up, Ben gets into some of his annoyances about people who choose to become bodybuilders for egotistical reasons and pick the quickest route with the most gear to get themselves in a state to compete.
We hear why Ben won't train people like this, and about the importance of doing things for the right reasons. Even the world’s top athletes can be unhealthy in certain ways though, but fortunately, there are people out there like Ben who know how to support them through their stress. Our hosts then move on to talk about some best practices while training, adherence being a huge one, and then Ben gives some insight into the coaching certification he is busy building, as well as the other things he sees as the best fit for his time. Make sure you don’t miss out on these great talking points by joining Ben and Ashleigh today!
