    Coaching Roundtable: Diuretics & Bodybuilding - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    1:05:28

    Welcome to The Muscle Mentors Podcast! This week Cal and Ross are joined by Joe Jeffery and Christian Chapman of the Physique Collective, and Tom Hames of Evolution Coaching to talk about diuretic use within the world of bodybuilding & physique competitions. Following tragic recent events within the industry, the guys thought it would be a great idea to spend some time discussing diuretic application in physique sport, the risks, the reasons for deployment, and the mechanisms in play. Also discussed are some alternative methods to peaking, and why perhaps this could be the superior protocol when it comes to driving maximum response whilst maintaining the integrity of health markers. The boys didn't go too heavily into the specifics here as that would be getting beyond the scope of the conversation, but some knowledge bombs to be taken nevertheless. As you'll see, this is part coaching chat, part open discussion, and part general catch up! If you’d like to find out more about the Physique Collective and what they do, visit here - https://www.physiquecollective.com If you’d like to find out more about Tom Hames, head coach at Evolution Coaching, visit here - https://www.evolution-training.co.uk Remember that all the information in this podcast is for educational and entertainment purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illnesses or diseases.

    Full Range of Motion vs. Active Range of Motion - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    50:50

    Welcome to The Muscle Mentors Podcast! In this episode, Luke, Paul & James discuss the age-old concept of *Range Of Motion* and how it relates to our own training and work as coaches. Want to learn more from us? Make sure to book onto our October 2021 Level 1 Practical Camp: https://www.themusclementors.co.uk/practical-camp-booking Specifically, the guys look at the debate between the approach of always performing exercises with a *Full Range Of Motion*, versus the often misunderstood approach of using *Active Range of Motion*. This episode will help you understand how much nuance there is to the term: *Range of Motion*, and more importantly, how you can start looking at and performing exercises to help ensure you maximise your "lifting longevity", so to speak. Undoubtedly, some feathers will probably be ruffled by this episode (particularly if you're a Full R.O.M advocate). Hopefully, if that's you, you'll still enjoy the episode and take some useful bits away from it. If you have any thoughts of your own, please share them with us below. Similar to last week's conversation, this was great fun. If you want the guys to discuss it further, please drop a comment below, and perhaps consider joining our Education Portal (www.themusclementors.co.uk) so you can be a part of future conversations we may have on there on the topic.

    Training To Failure: What does it actually mean? - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    1:10:32

    Welcome to The Muscle Mentors Podcast! In this episode, Luke, Paul & Ross discuss what it means to train 'to failure', the many different (and often conflicting) definitions of the concept, and what this all means for our training and coaching. Want to learn more from us? Make sure to book onto our October 2021 Level 1 Practical Camp: https://www.themusclementors.co.uk/practical-camp-booking The concept of training to failure is always a hot topic in the industry, and rightfully so! There are SO many different versions of it when we get into the nitty-gritty of day-to-day training. This conversation will serve to open your eyes to some of these versions of failure, and how you can use them within your own training and coaching practices. We also get into the weeds a little with respect to how the various conflicting definitions of failure can and do dramatically affect research being done in the area of hypertrophy. We all really enjoyed this conversation, so if you want to hear us discuss it further drop and comment below, and perhaps consider joining our Education Portal (www.themusclementors.co.uk) so you can be a part of the conversation too.
