In this episode of the Food For Fitness podcast, Jon and Scott discuss pain, more specifically – how to avoid it! Jon explains more about why we feel pain and some of the reasons for lower back pain.
We chat about how people who work in an office can improve their posture, if there’s any science behind standing at our desks or sitting on bosu balls and why we should move more to lift more! We delve into the effectiveness of foam-rollers, Pilates and yoga and if they can help minimise injury.
Jon talks about evidence-based practice, ‘dangerous exercises’ and talks about what more people should be avoiding and including in the gym.
It’s a great show and its essential listening if you want to stay injury-free and get the most from your training.
