Do trans athletes have an advantage in sport? ⚧️ Doctor & Transgender Weightlifter Explain
This was a bit of a sensitive topic: We're fortunate to have the opinion of a transgender friend of mine to discuss his experience on testosterone, and thoughts on fairness in men & women's sport. I may have misstepped in some of these comments: My goal is not to offend, but to outline the positions on both sides of the argument: the right for cisgender women to compete in a competitive sporting environment that is protected from male advantage, as well as the right to inclusion of transgender athletes. I'm keen to hear your thoughts below: 0:00 - Intro & Warning 2:50 - The gender performance gap - 6:50 - Role of hormones 8:40 - Rules: Transgender sport 9:20 - HRT/TRT & performance 15:10 - Effects of transitioning: 16:00 Is it fair? https://youtu.be/6II3Cw3dtYI

Re-cast: A beginner’s guide to consciousness with Jay Campbell
This week we have an absolute banger of a re-cast for you. After we chatted to Jay Campbell, he invited me (Yusef) on to his own podcast. I was on form that day, and know that you'll benefit from it. We cover a lot of things that I usually shy away from speaking about, so prepare for something a little different. Learn more about Jay here, and get hold of his free eBooks where he dives deep into hormone optimisation, without the pseudoscience. More people than ever before are trying to get onto the path of consciousness, but despite the willingness, most just don’t know where to start. How can young conscious beings increase their awareness when they’ve never even been taught what meditation is, let alone the right way to do it? We’re living in the information age, and that should mean everyone has access to the guidance they need. However, there’s simply too much information to sift through to get any real answers. How can someone entirely new to the world of consciousness building tell if they’re accessing the right information? In this episode, co-owner of Propane Fitness, Dr. Yusef Smith shares how to increase consciousness at a beginner’s level. Three Takeaways Why silence is the key to consciousnessWhen we’re forced to be alone with our thoughts, we begin to unpack each layer of our emotions. Sometimes we have to deprive our senses to truly connect with our minds.How our physical bodies are impacted by our thoughtsEvery thought and emotion has a physical counterpart in our bodies. The benefit of this is that we can recondition ourselves through both mental reorganization and by working directly with the body through stretch work, breathwork, and meditation.Why we need to stop looking for a quick fix to consciousnessWe wouldn’t expect to see massive results after a 6 minute workout, and we shouldn’t expect to be fully conscious after just one meditation. Consciousness takes commitment, and if we want to see full benefits from it we have to practice regularly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoKHfF6H0ss

Lessons From The Doctor Who Went To Prison
…the absence of usually ever-present feelings of missing out on life, the crux upon which a prison sentence exerts its punishment. It did feel somewhat like the rest of the country had sunk to our level of existence, just with the trappings of Netflix and Deliveroo. My former colleagues in the NHS being lauded as heroes, whilst I sat in prison a villain. This week we have something a little different. I chat to Dr Tim Kerr with a fascinating story, drawing wisdom from prison life into modern living.

Lessons from 2020
I’ve just completed my (slightly late) 2020 annual review. Here are some lessons which I'm sure you'll value too. https://youtu.be/3zmf5JJwqUI Business 📈: What I learned Cutting the fluff and focusing on a single metric is the way to progress. For us, it was opt-ins. We have had our most profitable year by FAR by focusing on ONE product, ONE funnel. “But what about Goodharts law?” “When the measure becomes the target, it ceases to become an accurate measure.”Goodhart's Law Goodhart's law holds up. But it doesn't kick in straight away. Everything works until it doesn’t. Optimising for ONE thing is better than not optimising for anything. Recurring reviews are the safety catch to ensure you’re still heading towards your vision ⛵️. As Chris Sparks says, nothing is grandfathered in. Separate planning from execution. Working as a Doctor 👨🏻⚕️: What I learned Being a good doctor is about consistent application of the inputs. No magic. Honestly, I had taken my eye off the ball a little this year with medicine, and I thought I would struggle with being a ‘senior’ house officer. But the role came naturally. Most ‘on the job’ learning is osmotic, unconscious. Add in a touch of focused learning and you cannot fail. Free time is the truest form of wealth. - The risk barbell: Being a doctor is the most bombproof job there is. When everyone was being furloughed around me this year, there wasn’t even a SNIFF of my job being under threat. 👃 Relationships 💘: What I learned Deeper connections through simple pleasures: Walking or eating with loved ones. I planned my gift-buying with TickTick and avoided the last minute panic. Asynchronous communication is underrated. Voice messages allow you to collect your thoughts and truly LISTEN (in 2x speed if you want to 👀 - don’t tell anyone). A hack for getting over your fear that ‘socialising isn’t productive’: Walking or eating together ticks many boxes. Working on projects together with your partner: grow together while working on a common goal. This year has shown us how poorly people tolerate being in their own company. Solitary confinement is considered the highest punishment. We must learn to enjoy our own company, not try to plug the existential void with TikTok videos: https://twitter.com/PropaneFitness/status/1341299729259487232 Cultivate fewer, deeper relationships. Our friend and mentor Paul died last week. Jonny and I were planning to visit him this year, and we missed our chance. You could lose someone at any time. Nothing is for granted. Don’t delay seeing people you love, and show them you care. Paul was always a refreshingly authentic presence and unexpected mentor to us. We would often ask his advice on sales, and he’d call back within 24 hours with a set of prepared notes with no agenda, just a passion for helping others.He never half-assed anything, and threw himself into life with both feet and a sense of humour. RIP brother, we’ll miss you, and we’ve learned a lifetime of lessons from you. Training: What I learned 🤸 Big win: I finally got some flares on the floor: https://twitter.com/PropaneFitness/status/1339645133462056962 The Lesson: focus single-heartedly on a goal, rather than spreading myself too thin. Passive flexibility does NOT equal active flexibility. Blast and cruise. It’s hard to gain a skill/strength/flexibility etc, but much easier to maintain or regain it.Gyms can close for months at the drop of a hat. Always have a backup bodyweight-training goal. Personal Growth This Year: ⚛️ What I learned I truly got my personal growth systems nailed this year by doing LESS.The lesson: You need less, not more self improvement masturbation. The personal development world is a rabbit hole. Get it nailed and MOVE ON. Don’t let it be a form of procrastination. Treat it like brushing your teeth 🪥. You do it once daily.

Dr. Stu McGill: How To Fix Your Back Pain
I loved this one. Dr Stuart Mcgill, professor emeritus at University of Waterloo for 30 years, clinician and researcher is THE man to follow about fixing your back pain. He works with athletes and general population, covering the principles to cure your back problems and sciatica. He's published over 240 papers, and written several books about back pain. Here he covers how to fix your lower back pain with a systematic and individualised approach. This year we're seeing a lot of sitting in makeshift home offices and gyms being opened and closed unpredictably. This has contributed to more people experiencing back pain. In this episode, we are lucky to have the authority, a master of his craft. Dr. Stu McGill is an academic, laboratory, clinician, researcher and a professor at the University of Waterloo of 30 years. He has a clear framework and takes a nuanced approach to back pain. We cover: How to cure your back pain: https://youtu.be/V76dVu3d_wo What is the back's capacity for recovery? https://youtu.be/givl_ucbInI Is 'pain-free’ a realistic goal? Does this equate to healed tissue? Dr McGill's approach to assessing back pain: https://youtu.be/fDOw2yOGOig Mimicking the movement patterns of pain-free populations Does Hanging help with back pain? https://youtu.be/a9UXVOXJVsU “The perfect storm” of powerlifting + yoga/gymnastics Reconciling overcoming the threat response following injury Stiffness vs loosenessHow to generate stiffness in someone who is hypersensitised Percussive massage devices: Do theraguns help with back pain? https://youtu.be/_x9MlUmKpcE Does Sleeping on the floor cure back pain? [Spoiler - it depends] https://youtu.be/L_B931iK8Mc What not to do Rules of thumb with flexion vs extension-intolerant pain? A guide to buying Dr McGill's booksDr McGill's mental models for success, why he doesn't know how to log in to facebook: https://youtu.be/2LxOAhEMFN8 Find out more from Dr McGill here. He has written a number of books on back pain, but the one I'd recommend as the most practical is Back Mechanic with included video guides. To escape your back pain for the price of a book is a miracle. Absolutely well worth it. If you're a clinician and want to take your knowledge further, I'd recommend Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance. It's not for the faint hearted, but it is truly the definitive resource on back pain for athletes from a practitioner's perspective. The depth and density of gems that his books contain are ridiculous.
