    Ep 60 | Tonos Reviews “What the Health”

    25/07/2017 Duração: 57min

    This episode is dedicated to reviewing the Netflix documentary “What the Health.” This documentary is a “gotcha” piece about connections between the meat and dairy industry, heart disease, and diabetes. You needn’t have seen the documentary to enjoy this show. But be warned - we offer a frank discussion of how science is conducted and how it can be manipulated. You may find some of the critiques in this show offensive. In addition to a discussion about research and evidence, we answer a listener question about extreme Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

  • Ep 59 | Water Crystals, Bob Dylan, and Caffeine Pills

    Ep 59 | Water Crystals, Bob Dylan, and Caffeine Pills

    18/07/2017 Duração: 53min

    Sabrena and Matt open the show talking about their favorite music and whether we like artists because we like their music or we like the artists’ place in history. Sabrena shares her recent search for a fitness podcast to only find pseudoscience BS selling crystal water vitamins. We go on to chat about a recent special edition of Time Magazine “The Science of Exercise” in which Sabrena was quoted on the various health benefits of exercise, walking specifically. The main idea of this show relates to a general understanding of science. We give a few examples to arm the listener with tools to detect whether sometime is actually rooted science or pseudoscience. Listener questions/comments: Women sweat during workouts, Jessie Spano took CAFFEINE pills, not diet pills, and the role of the family in public health policy.

    Ep 58 | Find a Good Trainer, Be Reasonable, and We Blow the Lid off Big Coconut

    11/07/2017 Duração: 53min

    We jump right into some listener questions from a previous episode related to ramping up your training and intensity. With some clarification, we determine that the client-trainer relationship was perhaps not a great fit. Other topics include: how to do a proper plank, are bodyweight exercises considered resistance training, and how do we reconcile the need to do increasingly more volume/intensity with your ability to recovery. The bulk this show is dedicated to a position statement from the American Heart Association related to saturated fat. The most salacious point in this statement has to do with coconut oil, specifically saturated fat in coconut oil. Thanks for listening, leaving a review, and sharing with a friend!

  • Ep 57 | Body Shaming, Laugh Tracks, and Public Health

    Ep 57 | Body Shaming, Laugh Tracks, and Public Health

    04/07/2017 Duração: 52min

    Matt and Sabrena are back together in the studio chatting about the correct pronunciation of foreign language words commonly used in English. We also chat about sitcom laugh tracks from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. More seriously, we chat about body shaming and other behavior shaming - including smoking. Although it’s a nuanced conversation, we ultimately arrive at a place where we find that shaming may be an effective strategy to avoid unhealthy behavior - like smoking - but, is sub-optimal as a motivational state.

    Ep 56 | Can You Get Adequate Protein Without Meat?

    27/06/2017 Duração: 46min

    Get your pens ready for some hate mail. Just kidding...kind of. This episode is all about protein. How much do you need? What is the best source? Is there such thing as a "complete" or "incomplete" protein? And, can vegetarians and vegans get the recommended amino acids without eating animal products? In addition to protein, we chat about how to stay healthy while traveling and what to do when your niece pukes all over an airplane.

  • Ep 55 | Losing Fat is Simpler Than You Think

    Ep 55 | Losing Fat is Simpler Than You Think

    20/06/2017 Duração: 56min

    Sabrena joins the show remotely this week. We open chatting about her recent work at the Senior Olympics. This spurs a broader conversation about "mature" athletes. Specifically, we hit on the fact that most people feel nervous when starting something new. It's newness that makes it uncomfortable, not necessarily your age or out-of-shape-ness. The majority of this episode is spent talking about habit - small, incremental, sustainable change. We share the story of a couple people who dropped 4% body fat by making very minuscule changes in their diet for 9-10 weeks. Thanks for listening, leaving a review, and sharing with a friend!

    We open the show re-visiting a previous listener question about getting a client to perform a better squat. We discuss the difficulties of eccentric loading which brings up a chat about the recent pec tears in the CrossFit Games Regionals competitions. This brings us to a general discussion of CrossFit’s place in the fitness industry. We go on to answer another listener question about clients’ resistance to science and evidence. This brings up a discussion about how past feelings can sometimes impact our ability to think impartially. Sabrena brings in an article about Orthorexia Nervosa - a condition related to obsessive behavior around “health” eating and habits. And, Scanny shares - very uncensored - how he really feels about the snake oil salespeople in health, fitness, and wellness. Share with a friend, subscribe, and throw us a review.

    Sabrena and Matt open the show catching up with each other and recapping Sabrena’s recent work travels. Getting into the main parts of the show, we re-cap a recent episode we did about genetic predisposition to enjoying or loathing exercise. In today’s version we ask: So what?

    30/05/2017 Duração: 48min

    This show is all about genetics. We specifically look at a study that may suggest that people have a genetic predisposition to either enjoy or dislike exercise. We examine how this causes us to think about motivation to work out. But - at the end of the day - what is your path forward? Whatever your genetic burden, how should you proceed?

    We open the show talking about training for park fights and Sabrena talks about her hairless bickering cats a little, too. We then move on to chat about changing your diet to accommodate fat loss. We identify why the “30 pounds in 30 days” claims are bogus. Sabrena and Matt spend the rest of the show dancing around an article that circled the interwebs about President Trump’s opinions on exercise. We focus on digital marketing footprints, understanding of science, and health policy. Please subscribe, share with a friend, and leave us a review!

    Ep 49 | Is Organic all that Great

    09/05/2017 Duração: 46min

    This week on the show we examine organic food and produce. We ask questions like: Is organic more nutritious? Is organic safer? Does organic taste better?

    02/05/2017 Duração: 01h03min

    We’re joined for a second week with “The Professor” Billy Skorupski and open the show with this week’s installment of “What’s Billy Wearing?" We get into the topic of research and ask the question: “Can we rely on and wait for a strong research base to make health decisions?” Basically: if it’s not harmful, why not try it regardless of evidence? The bulk of this show centers around the best listener question we’ve had yet. Basically, what do you do when you’re intimidated as the “newbie” in the gym and when do you move on to put in some uncomfortable hard work?

    25/04/2017 Duração: 49min

    Professor Billy joins us in the studio to discuss a recent study that seems to show that running may actually extend your life. Billy talks about the validity of the study and whether or not you can actually draw causation in a study like this. You can find an article and additional link to the study here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/12/well/move/an-hour-of-running-may-add-seven-hours-to-your-life.html?action=click&contentCollection=Europe&module=Trending&version=Full&region=Marginalia&pgtype=article In addition to running, we cover trashy TV, Zombies, tying knots, and our typical nonsense.

    Ep 46 | Toxins, Coconut Water, and Whole Foods Hate Mail

    18/04/2017 Duração: 53min

    Sabrena and Matt face head-on some of the most popular pseudo-science of our day. Specifically, we tackle toxins. Are they real? Must we “detox” to rid ourselves of toxins? Is a detox a healthy behavior? We take some listener questions from Facebook: Is coconut water really that great for hydration? I’ve worked out to varying degrees over the last several years, but really haven’t seen much body composition change. What’s up with that? As a reminder, you can send your questions to Tonos Radio on Facebook or leave us a review and ask a question there. Thanks for listening!

    11/04/2017 Duração: 58min

    The Ketogenic Diet was originally used to treat the symptoms of pediatric epilepsy due to the restriction of glucose as a fuel source to the brain. It has since been adopted in pop culture as a fat loss agent. In this episode Sabrena and Matt explore the diet and ask the following questions: Why do people gravitate toward the Keto diet early on? How does Keto work? What are the possible detriments of the Keto diet? Can we achieve the same level of fat loss without the risk of Keto? Thanks for listening, subscribing, and leaving a review!

    04/04/2017 Duração: 52min

    The show opens with Sabrena recounting her participation in the “Irish Mile” - a 1 mile race that proved to be significantly more competitive than she originally anticipated. We turn to discuss Matt’s recent travels through China and the burgeoning fitness trends he observed. This opened up a discussion of sexuality in fitness marketing - the good, bad, and super-weird. In the last segment of the show, we examine what it takes to ACTUALLY lose - and keep off - 20 pounds of body fat. We chose this metric because it was our most often-cited goals from new clients. Thanks for listening, sharing, and leaving a review!

  • Ep 43 | Standing Desks, Stretching Disputes, and Hormones

    Ep 43 | Standing Desks, Stretching Disputes, and Hormones

    28/03/2017 Duração: 58min

    The show opens with Sabrena and Matt getting their jimmies thoroughly rustled talking about trainers who don’t listen to their clients. This leads to a lengthy discussion on whether complex exercise programs are actually the most effective or whether they’re masking a deeper issue. We answer some listener questions: 1. Do we recommend standing desks? For whom? When? 2. Does “stretching” actually change the length of muscle, the neurological connection, or a little bit of both? 3. Do we advocate hormone replacement to ameliorate the issues of the aging athlete? Thanks for listening, leaving a review, and sharing with a friend!

    Sabrena signed up for a 1-mile St. Patrick’s Day run and Scanny gives her detailed instructions on proper carb-loading and fueling during her run. We answer some questions today: Is apple cider vinegar a healthy supplement? Are there other alternatives that provide the same health benefits of apple cider vinegar, but have more all-around benefits? How do you stay motivated with “milestones” as you pursue a lifetime of health and fitness? How many days per week can you work out and still see results? Thanks for listening, leaving a review, and sharing with a friend!

    14/03/2017 Duração: 50min

    Scanny opens the show with a story about busting his eye wide open and being a sound guy on Full House. We move on to chat about Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) - both the cause and what to do when you experience DOMS. Broadly, we explore the idea of soreness and whether or not it actually means your muscles “worked” or a workout was “good”. Thanks for listening, leaving a review, and sharing with a friend!
