Do you feel fatigued with bouts of low energy? A bit beaten up from the grind of work, training and life pressures? On top of this, perhaps you are struggling with getting restful sleeps, your memory and learning seems impaired with foggy thoughts, you’re feeling older with a sense of accelerated ageing, and skin issues such as psoriasis are flaring up. And maybe, motivation and drive has taken a dive and is second to anxiety. If so, this episode is worth a listen.

We kick things off by having a chat about the weird and wonderful world of us humans collection stuff. Why do we do it?! We chat about the craze for young girls called LOL Dolls and reflect on all the weird and pointless collections we’ve had throughout the years. All the wasted money! Haha

Episode Topic —> Stress – Identifying & dealing with a build up of body fatigue and exhaustion, caused by over training, work and being in beast mode all of the time.

We Discuss:

  2. Unwillingness to take time out from the gym for fear of losing gains or potential growth, and how this is counter productive to increased performance
