What The Health:
Language, imagery and ideology can be an incredibly dangerous tool when influencing approaches to health care. Healthcare is probably the most polemic subject, which rouses emotion like nothing else can. This is even more so the case when children are involved.
What The Health is a shameless attempt to fear monger, to take advantage of these emotions. The images of children eating cigarettes for breakfast, shots of hospital wards all draw on our deepest fears. There is so much wrong with the film that it is almost impossible to know where to begin and do justice on Instagram, but the elements that worried me the most were:
1. Reliance on worryingly poor studies that attempt to legitimise the film. Meta analyses is almost non existent in WHO study that the film creates its frame work on about meat causing cancer. If you dive into the studies used, there is a worrying reliance on epidemiological studies used, ie that correlation is interrogated but not causation. Anything can be linked with correlation.
2. Comparisons of eggs to cigarettes...need I say more? There is so much science backing the safety of fat sources, despite much debate.
3. Claims that humans were not intended to eat meat, but rather that we should eat plant based food only and supplement what we lose from meat. A complete contradiction.
4. If we want to look to correlations, red meat consumed in the USA has dropped, whilst obesity increased.
5. There is an attempt to claim that doses of vegan blood can kill cancer cells. This is not only hugely false scientifically,but entirely unethical.
6. Finally, the documentary lacks the inclusion of simple nutrition basics such as calorie requirements and the importance of surplus and deficits to lose and gain weight.
In sum, this film can actually be fully evaluated alongside religious extremism. Ideology takes place of reason and hard evidence in an attempt to scare people into belief. The film sits worryingly comfortably in the ever growing anti-science rhetoric.
If you wish to follow a plant based diet for ethical reasons then fine, but don't be put off animal products due to safety.
There is no single exercise out there that better develops and strengthens the posterior chain (think glutes, hamstrings, adductor magnus, and lumbar erectors) than the #deadlift . While many people use weights or dumbbells, try adding resistance with the #PowerPushUp . You can adjust your resistance and add up to 200lbs in resistance with 100lb 16" cables.
Another benefit...If you’re running short on time and looking for an exercise you can do that will work all your muscles, the deadlift would make a great choice.
After a shit week of tweaking my knee and throwing up all weekend I was gutted to have to let my mates down and pull out of a comp at the weekend. Tonight I had front squats down and after speaking to the legend @jbullough12 changed it for deads - they felt ace so one thing for it test I (sorry mate!) Lifetime goal achieved of 3x bodyweight deadlift 255kg @ 85kg.
I love the @jst_competeprogramming work and cannot recommend it enough.
Second week on the new program and I'm still really uncomfortable with sumo deadlifts. Might officially make the switch if things start improving though. Here's set 5 sets of 8 at 425 lbs
My favorite back moved to put on muscle mass!! 💪 (1) Unilateral bent over row with dumbbell (2) Chin ups, narrow grip (3) Seated rows, wide grip 🎉IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, ASK THEM BELOW!! #strongwomanfitness
Helyer Strength youth hitting up those squats!
This young lady hasn't been under load before so we ran through some activation drills, technique overhead squats with a PVC pipe, and then onto these back squats. She shown great control, balance and tightness through the whole ROM - Progress next week ☠️

So after a bit of a hiatus from posting (or being active on social media at all) I'm back. This means regular content on training, nutrition, tips & tricks, rants and much more. I've been dealing with some pretty nasty bicep tendonitis recently so I'll be sharing what I've been doing to try to rehab that. If you have any questions or any suggestions for topics I should cover either comment below or hit up my DMs.

Zit de deadlift al in jouw routine? Oke, het is een oefening met veel valkuilen en de techniek kan soms moeilijk te masseren zijn, maar het is ook een oefening met hoge rewards. Kortom, stop er moeite in en krijg de techniek onder de knie voor die echte GAINS! Je gebruikt bijna al je spieren bij deze oefening en het is dan ook een echte compound. DIT IS DAN OOK GELIJK DE TIP VOOR VANDAAG DIE JIJ NU OP KUNT RAPEN!!! -
Je ziet me hier 200 kg deadliften met redelijke techniek😆👌 Zolang jij geen last van je onderrug krijgt, is het in principe natuurlijk prima! Houdt de stang dicht langs je schenen en doe vooral een lange broek aan😂! Je mag ook proberen met korte broek maar ik denk dat je dan wel snel genezen bent😏👍 PROBEER HEM EENS EN KIJK WAAR JOUW MAX LIGT🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝
Ben nou eens eerlijk, die doelen van je liggen voor het oprapen. Die kans laat je niet liggen toch? -
Thrustin' that booty to 4x10 at 110kg - last set in video - Great exercise to get a fine set of glutes, to develop all muscles in your posterior chain and can be used in knee rehabilitation.. deadlifiting tomorrow will be banter after doing that! 👀🍑 @harryjzambon #personaltraining#deadlift#Jersey#hipthrust
