Peta Gillian from Strong Healthy Women joins me to talk all things weights and weight training for women.
Why training with weights and resistance training is important and just what can you do.
As usual, Peta has some fun little tips to keep you smiling. We talk through the difference between actual weights and just using your body. Balance skills and how to jazz it up a little.
Well what’s next. Did you know that when you walk you are nearly always balancing on one leg? This week I talk with “The Barefoot Podiatrist”, Paul Thompson about understanding your feet and the impact that they have on your body and your health.
Paul started out his career as a ”normal” podiatrist but his own issues with his feet, and having a small child got him interested in the role shoes play in our lives. Most importantly, just how very important your feet and their connection to your brain actually is.
Paul and I talk about one of the best ways to improve your movement by actually taking your shoes off. We talk about how you might transition to doing more barefoot action and also set some challenges to help you improve your balance. A truly insightful exploration about movement and how to improve yours as you get older.
