118 - Earn It. A Veteran's Day Message From Alex VanHouten

Every year on this day and memorial day, I go for a run, rain or shine, in the old pair of camo pants that I was issued 13 years ago in my JROTC class.They are torn and faded and definitely not acceptable as a BDU anymore.Many of my family members and friends have served both here and abroad and the action is the most sacred salute I can offer.With #ehlersdanlos, running is very difficult for me but a skill that I am committed to maintaining as long as possible. To be able to run TOWARD danger and challenges...rather than away from them.Like our service men and women have done and do - daily.I am dedicated to doing what I can to make the most of my freedom that I am thankful for...and to stay ready for the fights necessary to make it count every day.A heartfelt thank you to those who - past and present - that have sacrificed in service to our great nation.I don't know that there is anything that I can do in honor of what you've given/give to deserve it.Sanity, lives, and limbs have been lost on behalf of the freedoms that my family and community enjoy --Here's to making the most of all of it and hope those actions inspire others to do the same."Earn this"With the pain of every long hill ran and heavy weight lifted, the perseverance of every person uplifted, and the conscious choice to become better when it would be very easy to curl up content and comfortable instead...I am working on it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdB_7TYi__M#merica #definingdadbod #veteransday

116 - Top Trainers Tell All - What The Fitness Industry Doesn't Want You To Hear

Ever wonder what the experts in the health and fitness industry think about some of the shenanigans that you’re noticing?Sure some jokers are contributing to the problems in a big way. But there is an underground of highly educated, extremely passionate, and dedicated professionals who - despite the hype - have not been swayed by the ebbs and flows of fads, gimmicks, and snake-oily supplement practices. They are the ones who stick to the science, listen closely to each individual client, and work to change the world by supporting one powerful life transformation at a time. Tune in as Coach Alex VanHouten taps into the Trainer EDU community to see what these high-integrity professionals think about common fitness industry tropes and practices to find the number one thing we need to see to make the world of exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle change a better place. ——-Connect with Trainer EDUTraineredu.live/tribeProgram Sampledefiningdadbod.com/trainingsampleSupport the Show (Monthl...

115 - Stop Exercising. Start Training.

Exercise is a great habit. But it will only bring you limited results. In this episode, we talk through an important distinction - Training vs. Exercising. We will outline "General Adaptation Syndrome" and how a real 16 week program should be structured to get you the most bang for your buck each hour you follow your program. I let's make the best use of your time and energy!

114 - Metabolism, Training, and Dad Jokes - Coach Al Brings "Dad Bod" International

A recent one-week trip to the Dominican Republic for a consulting job ended up being profoundly related to the tenants of Defining Dad Bod. Metabolic adaptation and practice is the same cross-culturally.Dad jokes also happen to be a cross-cultural phenomenon. Who knew?On a serious note, these are my less-than-formal but still related to health and fitness takeaways from over 30 hours of time spent in performance clinics, crossfit boxes, running trails, and speaking with doctors, trainers, nutritionists, clients, and patients in the only language I know doesn't require an understanding of grammar and syntax to speak well.

113 - Curing Metabolic Disorders For Good - with Dr. Kent Sasse

Dr. Sasse is a national expert in the field of minimally-invasive metabolic surgery and in this episode, we get to have an honest conversation about both the state of increasing metabolic disorders in the western world that seem to be beyond the help of exercise and nutrition interventions AND what might be done to impact the lives of hundreds of thousands who find themselves with a type 2 diabetes diagnosis or on the road to it.This conversation hit particularly close to home because of a family member who underwent gastric bypass surgery just over a decade ago — and it was enlightening to hear how the seemingly arcane practice of stabling the stomach has evolved to something altogether more effective and less risky. We cover myths, prognosis, and even changes in resting metabolism as born out through research and a number of other topics that - if they don’t impact you directly - will definitely be meaningful for someone you love.

112 - The Great Obesity Gene Study You Never Heard About

As a trainer working with real people daily for almost 14 years, you learn things that research hasn’t quite parsed out yet. One of these things is that some types of cardiovascular exercise seemed to help clients lose fat faster than others…even aside from caloric expenditure. I never knew why, but my clients that made a regular habit of running, walking, hiking, and jogging did better with their body composition goals than those who cycled, swam, or danced. We still don’t know the whole story, but this study is a POWERFUL step in the direction of understanding the mechanisms better. Short answer? It turns out certain types of exercise may “turn on” genes that buffer obesity and “turn off” genes that tend to increase a person’s risk for high BMI, larger waists and hips, and higher Body Fat Percentage.Who knew?Time to get steppin’—-Ask Questions, Make A PledgeMore information: definingdadbod.com/innercircleReady to Start YOUR TRANSFORMATION?

109 - 60lbs. in 8 months with Jessie McCall

I talk alot on this show about the challenges that Dads face in their pursuit of health and fitness - let’s talk about Mom! Jessie McCall’s 60lbs transformation over the last 8 months is a powerful one for a few reasons. 1) Post - partum weight loss is something many mothers wrestle with. “Losing the baby weight” is a desire mom’s have even 5 years after their child is born. Jessie’s story lays those obstacles out and is a real account of how to get that weight off. 2) Post - partum depression is a real problem. And the psychiatric literature shows consistently that exercise is a powerful buffer to depression and perhaps one of the few reliable cures for Moms and Dads alike. 3) Often, the “get up early, get to the gym” thing is associated with men only. Jessie’s story turns that paradigm on its head as her program gets her up before her son wakes up and she diligently pursues her betterment for her and her family’s sake. She would tell you - if she can do it, any mom can!C...
