The DadBodBible Real Men Talk A podcast for das/men 40+ In a society where people are afraid to talk about subjects deemed risky, we stick a middle finger up to the woke crowd and discuss it anyway We talk everything dad/man related from fitness and Nutrition to political landscapes. Nothing is censored
Procrastination, the enemy of change
There are two drivers for us, pleasure and pain
Pain is the stronger of the two. We will do what’s required to avoid pain
When we reach the point were pain overrides our current choices, we are free to take the action required to change
Why do so many successful business men fail when it comes to looking after their bodies?
What lessons can they learn from their business success that could cross over to their personal lives?
Change can be overwhelming
Figuring out strategies to help dilute the effects of change can lead to a smooth transition to success
Training at home should be simple, it should be consistent and it should be minimal as far as equipment goes
the less distractions you have, the easier it is to do it
The Royal Court of Home Gyms
You have these three items and you have a fully functioning gym that WILL build you a better body
All three of these items are fully portable and can be thrown into the boot of the car and taken wherever you go
of course you can have more items if you wish but IMO the less room required and the more portable the items, the better
If I brought a barbell, plates, bench and a rack home, I better have another home to stay in because
I am not gonna be sleeping in my bed with the wife, I can bet she will make sure of that
Of course things like macebells, val slides, resistance bands, sandbags are a welcome edition to any home gym and opens up many other options but I suggest getting the basics and build from there
I get that but the question still remains.... WHY?
You have spent how many years "just wanting to train"
But you have never stopped to ask WHY you want to train?
And for the vast majority this is what is stopping your from succeeding!
It is ironic that those looking for the answer, avoid asking the necessary questions
We are our children’s first love and influencers but what if we took a step back and allowed them to teach us lessons?
They intrinsically know what living is!
WE decided through logic what living is, based off our perceptions and experiences but we have forgotten that a LOT of what we THINK we know is driven by society’s definition of what normal should be, our children haven’t experienced that level of conditioning YET!
If we allowed ourselves to apply our life lessons ALONG with their natural exuberance for life, we would discover that not only will they become more confident children but we would live a less stressful, more joy filled life that benefits us all and THAT is what living is about!!

The best thing you can ever do for yourself is to build mental resistance
We have no power over what life throws at us but we do have power over how we react
once this clicks in your mind, you are free to have more control over all your actions and ultimately your outcomes
The mental health of our society is at threat
Why are the media and governments not acknowledging it?
Why is there such a focus on preventing COVID deaths at the expense of all others?
We live in a changing world
Waiting for things to change is futile
If you want your life to change, you gotta be willing to take action to change it yourself
Training can be boring
Deal with it princess
The routine you are in will determine the results you get
What kind of routine do you have?
Is it helping or hindering?
It is really simple, the world will do its best to crush you
Don't help them
We tend to do what we are good at, avoiding the stuff we know we should do but avoid
Over time this leads to us not feeling 100% and yet we still choose to avoid doing whatever is required in favour of the stuff we enjoy
My daily talk on what’s on my mind and how it can possibly help you become more
Can you touch your toes?
Can you do 10 proper push ups?
Many men struggle to do basic movements of the human body but insist on jumping into HIIT style sessions
And then wonder why they end up injured?
Too many men want the body they are after without having to go through the struggle of achieving it
The reality is, for you to succeed in anything, you must be willing to sacrifice things that others are not
Where there is money to be made, there will be lies told and nowhere is this more prevalent than the fitness industry
An industry that is meant to help people, is turning into a cutthroat industry where lies seem to be acceptable as long as there is a profit to be made
The most common mistakes the average man makes when it comes to their eating, that are preventing them for achieving their goals.
Middle aged men and the mistakes they make in training, especially in recovery

Is the man you are today, the type of man you would be happy to date your daughters?
Is the man you are today, the type of man you would want influencing your sons?
Most men I meet, are training wrong
This leads to injury, failure and a feeling of pointlessness
The solution is acceptance that you need to do things differently and embrace the change
Paddy Joe Black Joins me to discuss all things nutrition and fitness
Our habits dictate our day to day actions
Whether good or bad, our mind doesn’t rationalise, it just does
But WHY do they have such sway over us when for so many of us, they are detrimental to our goals?
Once you realise that the struggle you dread is the answer to your problems, you are free to take the action required
I speak with another of the OG's of Irish MMA, Andy Burrows and we reminisce about the good old days of Irish MMA, the evolution of the sport and how we see it panning out in the future.
We talk all things fitness, business and marketing related and how he applied painful lessons learnt from the car industry to the fitness industry and founded Irelands No. 1 Personal Training Academy
