Walk into almost any gym or health in the WORLD (trust me, I do) and you will see at least one young woman draped over a bench awkwardly balancing a barbell across her hips as she attempts to do the Hip Thrust - one of the most effective exercises for helping improve sprint speed.Wait, what? Is that why all of those young women are lying on their backs pressing barbells into the air with their hips, it's to improve their ten-meter acceleration?Most likely not, but research on the Hip Thrust has produced some interesting evidence to suggest that the exercise is great for performance as well as appearance. On this episode of All About Fitness, Bret Contreras, PhD, drops by to share how he got the idea for creating the Hip Thrust exercise; in addition, we talk about the benefits of the exercise and what the research data is showing.

Yes, we are all well aware that exercise is good for our muscles and can help get rid of unhealthy bodyweight, but recently science has been discovering the numerous benefits that exercise has the brain, including how we think and feel.

Recent findings suggest that physical activity, especially when performed in a group setting, has a significant and important influence on the hormones that regulate not only the functions of our cells, but how we think and feel.Dr. Kelly McGonigal is a research psychologist at Stanford University who studies stress and emotion. Dr. McGonigal is well known for her TED Talk on How to Make Stress Your Friend; and besides studying the inner workings of the human mind, it turns out that she happens to be a group fitness instructor, making her a perfect guest to help you understand how exercise can change the brain. On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. McGonigal and I discuss the psychology of group fitness; specifically how different types of movement can not only change our bodies but change how we think and feel.

Exercise is physical stress applied to the body. Muscles become stronger after the workout, not during it, therefore exercise can be most effective when the body is given the appropriate amount of time to rest and recover between workouts. Periodization is a system of designing exercise programs that alternates the intensity and volume of exercise to allow for optimal periods of recovery (and adaptation). This Quick Fit Tip is a review of the science of recovery along with a few tips for how to apply it to your workouts so you can see optimal results!Blog posts about Periodization:A Year-long Workout ProgramTop Strategies for Optimal Recovery Between Workouts Top Reasons for Using Periodization (written for fitness professionals) For great fitness info and how-to's, follow Pete on Instagram: @PeteMcCall_fitness To learn more about how exercise can enhance your quality of life, buy a copy of: Smarter Workouts: The Science of Exercise Made Simple Visit the sponsor of All About Fitness:Terra Core Fitness - the fitness platform that can reshape your body and was voted one of the top at home fitness products by Men's Health magazine!

For those of us fortunate to maintain a lavish western lifestyle it can be hard to imagine what the fitness scene might look like in countries like Thailand, India, Philippines or Oman; however, fitness is international and no matter where you go in the world there are modern health clubs with 21st century fitness equipment. As the economies of countries modernize, it’s creating new opportunities for the growth of the fitness industry. As workers move to higher-paying jobs they can afford many “luxuries” of modern living like fast food, smart phones and video games, as a result, the populations of these countries are experiencing a number of health issues related to a sedentary lifestyle that could affect the long term economic viability of each country. The upside its that these easily preventable health issues are creating new opportunities for the international growth of the fitness industry as many countries turn to exercise to help fight lifestyle-related chronic diseases.Fortunately, all around the world health clubs are opening in an effort to help people stay healthy through exercise and no where is this growth more explosive than the Asian market. As health clubs open and sign up new members this is creating an international demand for educated personal trainers. On this episode of All About Fitness, recorded live from the IDEA Conference in Shanghai, China, Marc Coronel, an international educator for fitness products like TRX and Trigger Point Therapy and Brian Bettendorf, an international business consultant specializing in fitness equipment, discuss the international growth of the fitness industry and whether personal trainers in Asia are better educated than those in the states (you'll have to listen to find out whether or not they are).Follow Marc Coronel on Instagram: @OpenMindFitness To see the types of workouts that can help you to slow down the aging process, follow Pete McCall on Instagram: @PeteMcCall_fitness To learn more about the types of exercise programs that can help you to slow down the aging process, pick up a copy of Smarter Workouts: The Science of Exercise Made Simple Visit the sponsor of All About Fitness:TerraCore Fitness - Voted 1 of the top at-home fitness products by Men's Health!

Regular exercise can slow down the effects of aging on your body! Thanks to some fascinating research, we now have a much better understanding on how a lifetime of exercise can help you overcome the effects of aging.Founded in 1965, the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University in Indiana is one of the oldest exercise science labs in North America and for years has been on the cutting edge of research to identify the most effective methods for improving human performance.In the fall of 2018, the Ball State Lab, led by Dr. Scott Trappe, published a study titled, "Cardiovascular and skeletal muscle health with lifelong exercise" which measured the benefits of lifelong participation in exercise by studying a population of 70 year-olds who have participated in exercise for a large majority of their adult lives. In addition, the study compared the physiology of the 70 year-olds to 20-somethings to see how the physiology of the older adults - effected by years of regular exercise - compared to the younger adults and the results were AMAZING!On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Trappe, the director of the Ball State Human Performance Laboratory and the lead author of the study, joins me to discuss the research. Dr. Trappe provides important insights on the findings and shares his tips for how you can receive the long-term benefits of regular exercise.

On Wednesday, August 7 news broke that Stephen Ross, a real estate developer who happens to be a majority owner of Equinox health clubs and Soul Cycle indoor cycling studios, was hosting a fundraiser for Donald Trump at $250,000 per plate (see CNN story HERE). Equinox and Soul Cycle are two brands built on inclusivity and diversity with a large percentage of membership coming from the LGTBQ+ community; when the membership found out that their money was going to a major fundraiser for Trump, #boycottequinox and #boycottsoulcycle became trending hashtags on Twitter.Stephen Ross has the right to spend his money however he wants which includes making contributions to any politician he chooses; however, his customers also have the right to spend their money where they choose. On this episode of All About Fitness I'm joined by Zack Ford, a writer who covers the Trump administration for ThinkProgress as well as publishing his own newsletter on LGTBQ+ issues - Fording the River Styx - which covered the story HERE. Zack shares his insights on why so many members of the community feel betrayed. In addition, Dr. Natalia Petrzela, an Associate Professor of American History at the New School in NYC and co-host of the Past-Present podcast, makes a return to provide her unique insights into the consumer reaction, the boycott and whether it really will make an impact on the company. This is a fascinating discussion about the reaction to the owner of a fitness brand supporting a politician who has actively marginalized many consumers of his brand.

Exercise comes easy to some people while others would rather do anything else than sweat. Many of us who now work full-time in the fitness industry started because we struggled to exercise ourselves and once we were able to reap the benefits from making it a habit we wanted to help others learn how to make exercise a part of their lives as well. Kenny Santucci, the Director of Body by Solace in New York City, is an example of someone who struggled with his weight yet has now dedicated his career to helping others get in the best shape of their lives. Kenny is well known for multiple TV appearances and being an amazing on-air TV host, but what makes him a great fitness coach is his commitment to helping his clients become the best version of themselves. On this episode of All About Fitness, Kenny joins me to talk about his journey struggling with his weight, how he got started in fitness, the benefits of high intensity exercise and why his post-workout brunches are such an important part of his fitness experience.If you've ever struggled with making exercise a habit, this conversation will provide you with some important insights on how you can take the steps to make fitness a regular part of your life.For exercises that can enhance your quality of life right now, follow Pete on Instagram:@PeteMcCall_fitness To learn more about which kinds of exercise that can enhance your quality of life, pick up a copy of the book:Smarter Workouts: The Science of Exercise Made Simple Please visit the sponsors of All About Fitness:Sandbells and Softbells by Hyperwear - 1 of the most versatile and effective products, featured in my book Smarter Workouts - Sandbells and Softbells can deliver an extensive variety of fitness results!

The human body is like a cell phone; a phone is made up of hardware, specifically bits of plastic, metal and glass - what makes the phone function is the operating system. In the human body our muscles and skeletal structures are the hardware, our central nervous system (CNS) is akin to our operating system which allows us to function. The data received by the CNS is critical for helping you to move and perform your best.The shoes you wear can affect how your body receives data from the environment, specifically the ground. Our feet are designed to absorb force when we step on the ground and to generate force by pushing off against it. Wearing the wrong type of shoes can change how your feet, and your entire body, function.Galahad Clark is a 7th generation member of the Clark family that makes Clark shoes; however, he realized that many shoes are poorly designed and do not support the natural function of the feet they're supposed to protect. As a result, Galahad started the VIVOBAREFOOT shoe company to create minimalist shoes that allow for optimal foot biomechanics. Recently Mr. Clark & VIVOBAREFOOT produced the movie, Shoespiracy to tell and show how the large shoe companies design shoes for profits not to promote optimal human performance (as many claim). On this episode of All About Fitness, Galahad discusses what motivated him to disrupt the shoe industry; we discuss the benefits of wearing minimalist shoes and address the proper way to incorporate them into your exercise program. If you've ever wondered whether or not your shoes affect how you move then this episode is for YOU!To learn more follow VIVOBAREFOOT on Instagram:@vivobarefootDo you want to get in better shape or learn more about exercise?

Every time you take a step your feet interact with the ground which sends forces upwards into the body; at the same time the weight of your body presses down on top of the foot. The foot is structurally designed to handle these forces, however if your feet do NOT function properly it could affect many other parts of your body. On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Emily Splichal, a podiatrist with a movement background in gymnastics and experience as a fitness instructor, talks about the role your feet play in how your body is designed to move.

Every time you take a step your feet interact with the ground which sends forces upwards into the body; at the same time the weight of your body presses down on top of the foot. The foot is structurally designed to handle these forces, however if your feet do NOT function properly it could affect many other parts of your body. On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Emily Splichal, a podiatrist with a movement background in gymnastics and experience as a fitness instructor, talks about the role your feet play in how your body is designed to move. We discuss the role that minimalist shoes could play in your fitness program, in addition, Dr. Splichal provides important insights on what you can be doing to improve the health and function of your feet.To learn more about the role of the foot in how you move, pick up Barefoot Strong: Unlock The Secrets to Movement Longevity by Dr. Splichal Follow this link to learn more about Naboso Technology, Dr. Emily's exclusive line of products designed to enhance your foot health.

You love to exercise but your job requires you to be a road warrior which leads to an interesting conundrum: how do you combine your love of sweating with a job that requires you to live out of hotel rooms? Some hotels have full service health clubs integrated into the property while others barely have a workout room with a few pieces of sad-looking equipment. No matter where you go and what equipment you have access to, you still want to be consistent with your workouts, how can you make that happen?As someone who makes a living traveling the world to teach education workshops to fitness professionals, I have more than a little personal experience in this area, on this Quick Fit Tip I share ideas and suggestions for how you can stay in shape while on the road.First tip:Unless you're focused on a specific goal, working out on the road is about maintenance, it's not the time to focus on muscle growth or fat loss; instead, working out on the road should focus on low-to-moderate intensity type of exercise that can help you feel better without crushing you physically. In short, working out while traveling is more about maintaining your psychological health by being consistent with your routine as opposed to your physiological health - where you are attempting to make drastic changes to your body. Listen to the full episode for more tips. This is a link to my Instagram page: @PeteMcCall_fitness - where I documented my recent 2 week trip to show how to stay fit while living out of hotel rooms in 3 different countries.Here is a blog I wrote on the topic of Road Warrior Fitness for 24 Hour Fitness; NOTE: tip 8 has a link to a video where I show a number of great mobility exercises for your hips and back.This link is to my book: Smarter Workouts: The Science of Exercise Made Simple - you will learn workouts using only 1 piece of equipment, one reason I wrote the book is for frequent road warriors who are fitness enthusiasts and want solutions for staying in shape while traveling.

There is so much information about nutrition, some of it based on actual research while a lot of it is just based on pure anecdotal experience. NO nutrition program will work for every person; whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle or improve performance if you are looking for the healthiest eating plan for your needs then it is important to work with a nutrition professional who can perform a proper assessment to identify your specific needs.On this episode of All About Fitness, Ashley Koff, RDN, founder of the Better Nutrition Program talks about the role of assessments in identifying specific needs. Ms. Koff has a background as nutritionist working with many celebrities and now conducts education programs for fitness and wellness professionals as well as offering coaching services to individuals to help them develop the best nutrition plans for their needs. This is a fun conversation with a leading dietitian-nutritionist that will have you thinking differently about the food that you put in your body.

Stress, like death and taxes, is one of life's certainties. We deal with stress at home, on the job and at the gym (exercise is physical stress applied to the body); we tend to think of stress as a bad thing, yet according to Dr. Julia DiGangi, a psychologist who studies the effects of stress on the brain, some stress could actually be good for us. Dr. DiGangi is the founder of NeuroHealth Partners, an organization devoted to understanding how to optimize wellness and healthy living, on this episode of All About Fitness, she explains how stress can help us become more resilient and capable of withstanding the hard challenges that we'll face in life.

Age is no reason to slow down or stop your favorite activities. The only thing that should change as we get older is that we should focus on exercising smarter, NOT harder. To make this point and to celebrate the most important person in each of our lives, this special episode of All About Fitness features an interview with Sonja Friend-Uhl, the oldest American woman to break the 5 minute mile barrier, the recent winner of the 45-49yo Women's 800m at the International Indoor World Track Championships in Poland, a recent inductee to the College of William and Mary Athletic Hall of Fame and a mother to two amazing children (she's also married to an awesome guy - so she really does have it all). During our interview, Sonja shares her approach to fitness which has allowed her to excel as an athlete and compete against college-age women young enough to be her daughters (beating many of them) as well as winning a world championship against others of her own age and experience. If you need the motivation to stay with your favorite activities as you get older, then this special Mother's Day edition is for you! Follow Sonja on Instagram (and to see her smoke college-aged women in open meets):@Sonjaruns Do you want to be an international champion like Sonja?

Legs. Chest. Back. Arms. Core. Fascia. Emotions. What?Yes, most exercise programs will focus on specific muscles or parts of the body, but when was the last time you walked into a gym to strengthen your fascia or train your emotions? The truth is that our bodies are complex organisms containing numerous systems (digestive, nervous, muscular) each one affected by exercise. Your fascia is the elastic tissue that surrounds every single muscle fiber; muscles generate force and fascia transmits that force through the body. If you are not doing the proper exercise or self-care techniques for your fascia, it WILL affect how you move and could be a potential cause of injury. When it comes to our emotions, there is a direct connection between how we feel and how we move; motion influence emotion and emotion influences motion. On this episode of All About Fitness, Rodney Corn, a co-founder of Feel Soma one of the smartest, most innovative fitness educators in the world who helped create the education programs for PTA Global and NASM shares his insights on fascia and emotions and how each can have a significant impact on how you move and feel both in and out of the gym.

On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. John Krakauer and I discuss the motor learning process, the benefits of learning a new sport at any age and whether technology really can help you become better at a specific skill. Dr. Krakauer is known for his, "Is the Dumb Jock Really a Nerd' hypothesis which posits that skilled movement requires genius-level function from the brain. To understand more about Dr. Krakauer and his work, READ THIS PIECE about his role with the BLAM Lab at Johns Hopkins University.To learn more about how exercise can enhance YOUR quality of life, follow this link to purchase Smarter Workouts: The Science of Exercise Made Simple, my 15 years of educating personal trainers can help you learn the best exercises for your needs!Please support the sponsors of All About Fitness:Terra Core Fitness - the ULTIMATE home workout equipment!

Technology disrupts industries. Netflix eliminated Blockbuster - now instead of driving somewhere to argue about what to watch before falling asleep in front of the TV, we can do it from the comfort of our homes.

This is a first episode in a special series looking into how technology is hacking fitness. The series starts off with Bryan K. O'Rourke, an investor and serial entrepreneur who currently serves as the President of the Fitness Industry Technology Council and the host of the Fitness + Technology podcast making him the perfect person to launch this series. Technology can support our fitness efforts in a number of different ways, but are there limits as to how technology can help us?

There is an important mis-perception among fitness consumers: that the only reason to lift weights is to get big muscles. Nothing could be further from the truth. Exercise is important for maintaining good health and a high quality of life and strength training with weights is a critical component of exercise that delivers many benefits that make a long, healthy, enjoyable life possible.You may know that strength training should be a part of your overall workout program, but it can be difficult to know exactly what to do in order to get the results that you want. That’s why workout programs like Men’s Health Muscle After 40 are a great option - they provide the guidance and direction, you provide the energy for the workouts.
