    Two Old Coaches talk training again (Craig Harper and Russell)

    02/10/2020 Duração: 01h11min

    Craig Harper and I have known each other for nearly 30 years.We’ve worked together in elite sport, I worked for him in my first PT role and we’ve been business partners in our own PT centre.We’ve remained good mates all of that time and whenever we sit down to do a podcast, it’s a bit like to old cowboys sitting around a campfire discussing the good old times and how it used to be done ‘back in the day’.Truth is though, between the two of us we’ve got over 60 years of field experience, training bodies and minds and enhancing physical performance.Tens of thousands of PT sessions between us, tens of thousands of hours spent working with all sorts of teams and individuals, from General Population through to elite athletes and everyone in between.We had so much to discuss, we had to cut our Science of Exercise Episode into two parts.In these Episodes we talk progressive overload, program design, finding the right ‘dose’, how and when adaptation happens, training intensity, recovery, over-training, periodization,

    Sally Bailey - Connecting Adolescents with Exercise

    29/09/2020 Duração: 44min

    Sally Bailey has a Human Movement degree and a Masters in Strength and Conditioning.  In the Podcast we talk about her current role at a very prestigious school in the heart of Melbourne.  Sally is responsible for the development and direction of a program at the school that fosters health, wellness, and access to activity during the regular school day.  This is a very comprehensive and sophisticated program.  But, having known Sally for over 20 years, that doesn’t surprise me.  This is how she goes about her work.  Sally is a true professional.  Considered, highly experienced, and has worked at all levels of sport and physical conditioning as a Strength and Conditioning Coach.  In this Podcast, she details just how the Artemis program sets up life long healthy habits for all the students that will stay with them for the rest of their adult lives.  I wish we had a program similar to this for all students in all schools.  I firmly believe that compulsory movement, exercise, and health education is the only way

    Matt Wenning - Elite Powerlifter and Strength Expert

    21/09/2020 Duração: 54min

    Matt Wenning is one seriously strong human.  He has held and broken World Powerlifting records over his career as a Strength athlete.  He’s one of a handful of people to have lifted a total of over 2600Ibs (1180kg) at a Powerlifting meet.  This is insanely strong.  Period.  As well as this though, Matt is a student (and one could say Master) of the science of getting strong, very strong.  He holds a Masters in Biomechanics and has learnt from and worked with some of the worlds leading authorities on Strength training and research in Strength.  Names like Bill Kraemer, Charles Poliquin, Professor Rob Newton.  These are people that have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of understanding and adding to the body of knowledge on Strength training and Matt is doing exactly the same thing.  I’ve no doubt in years to come that Matt will be held in similar regard to these people.  So our chat covered many key topics, at times I had to dig deep into my own understanding and learnings just to keep up.  Matt is a walki

    David Watts - Melbourne Football Club Strength and Power Coach

    14/09/2020 Duração: 49min

    Ok, Strength nerds, this one’s for you.  David Watts is a Level 3 ASCA Strength and Conditioning Coach and is recognized as a Master Level Coach with the ASCA.  What that means is that David has spent well over 10 years as a student of perfecting human performance.  He was an accomplished athlete himself (Field Hockey) and quickly figured out that he had a strong interest to learn and become a coach in the field of Strength and Conditioning.  We talk a little about his career pathway and development, and then we get into the detail of his role, his approach to strength development in athletes (specifically AFL), his favorite movements, details around developing speed for team sports and finally his thoughts on where we might be able to find ‘the next edge’.  This guy will be at the pointy end of Strength and Conditioning for many years to come, and I predict, will be in charge of his own elite team in the near future.  If you want to know how shit gets done at the AFL level, or you have aspirations of working

    07/09/2020 Duração: 42min

    Tommy Simsek is a highly qualified and deeply experienced Sports Physiotherapist.  He also completed a Physical Education degree prior to that, as well as a Masters in Physiotherapy.This guy has dedicated his entire adult working life to the understanding of human performance, injury treatment and injury prevention.  Since 2005 he has been involved with the Sri Lankan National Cricket Team, the Chennai Superkings in the IPL (Indian Premier League) and The New Zealand National Cricket Team.His work has taken him all over the world, and he has worked with some highly talented athletes.  Given all of this though, his philosophy and approach to managing his athletes is refreshingly simple and common sense.  Sure, he relies on the science to guide him, but there is a healthy amount of gut feel and experience that goes into his decision making.Clearly it’s working, you don’t get to survive at this level unless you do a very good job of treating your athletes over an extended period of time.Enjoy the Podcast with To

    VICKY KURIEL Dietician and Business Owner was my guest on this Podcast, so naturally our discussion was all around dietetics and nutrition.  Eating well and optimising food intake in general.  We spoke about her early beginnings in South Africa, her confusion and hesitation during her undergraduate degree, with regard dietetics practice, and we spoke in detail about some of the basic principles and practices that she uses and advises people with, in today's world in order to eat well.I'm also going to get VICKY to come back for a second episode, because we had so much left to talk about.

    Arj Perera - Blending private practice and team coaching

    17/08/2020 Duração: 39min

    Arj Perera is a coach with over 15 years experience, but has travelled the less worn path to achieve some impressive results over that time.He owns and operates his own private S&C facility in regional Victoria (a city called Bendigo) and has also been a part of the WNBL scene (with the Bendigo Spirit) and the Australian Womens Volleyball team as well.I think it’s partly because he went along a different path, that he in fact developed some sound business and marketing skills that many S&C Coaches don’t possess, or perhaps didn’t think they needed to.And so Arj now finds himself consulting and mentoring with other S&C Coaches to help them forge a career and business in the private sector.This was a discussion that shines a light on how important it is for S&C Coaches to perhaps start seeing themselves as business operators that operate in the space of physical improvement and performance, rather than coaches of physical improvement that want to have a business.FB: Arj Pererahttps://humanmechan

    Grant Jenkins - Coach and Coach Mentor

    12/07/2020 Duração: 53min

    Australian Fitness Podcast - Episode #29 Grant Jenkins.I met Grant back in 2008 when we were both part of an ASCA Level 3 course.  What I remember about him then was that he was always up for a debate, keen to challenge mainstream thinking, but not to be argumentative, just to see if there was a better, more efficient, and more effective way of doing things.He’s still challenging the status quo.He’s very knowledgeable, very practical in his thinking, and intensely passionate about his industry, his work, and his business.  When you listen to Grant, you’ll get the distinct impression that he simply wants to do a great job for and with his athletes.He’s had roles in Sport at the elite level, owns and operates his own business and in this chat, we examine the nuances of the modern-day Strength and Conditioning Coach.I liked this Podcast because it’s an open and honest chat about how he sees his role as a coach, what he believes other coaches need to focus on, and where he sees the future of S&C in Australia.

    When I stumbled across Scott as a follower of The Australian Fitness Podcast, I was intrigued by his profile.  A little bit of research showed me that he had quite the background in training, business and the military.  So I investigated and invited him to be on the Podcast.  This is a valuable episode and Scott is an impressive operator.  If you are an entrepreneur or have an interest in being an owner / operator in the Fitness Industry, you need to listen in.This is how it should be done.  This guy worked as a PTI in the Australian Defence Force for 14 years.  By his estimation he has trained tens of thousands of people over his time, not including the people he has trained privately in his business.His business is impressive, his philosophy is clear and his skills are exceptionally well honed.  This guy knows his trade, he’s refined his skills for close to 20 years and that is indeed why he has a successful and flourishing business.I see this repeated over and over again.  The fitness industry is a tough o

    Jacqui Lauder is a ridiculously qualified and experienced Sports Psychologist. She’s worked at the elite level of sport since 1998, in AFL, Netball, Ice Hockey, Cycling, Tennis, Rugby, Motorsports, even Croquet. So, when I got the chance to get her on the Podcast, you can imagine I jumped at it.The first Sports Psych we’ve had on the show and wow, what a great Podcast it turned out to be. Sometimes when you interview someone, you can just tell that they ooze knowledge.  The depth of their answers is so detailed, that it just leaves you with more questions than what you started with.This was one of those interviews.  The more I asked her, the more I realized that she had so much to give. I really enjoyed this chat with Jacqui and the content she brings is gold.It’s an extra bonus that I managed to interview her and escaped unscathed.  I kept her relatively distracted and she didn’t get to analyze me.I definitely be getting her back for another chat.On a side note The Australian Fitness Podcast is really starti

    Craig and I have history, nearly 30 years of it.  So when we get on a Podcast it's always an easy, fun chat that can go anywhere, and so to with this one.  There's some business talk, some motivational talk, some fitness talk, some shit talk, just me and Harps shooting the breeze.  We talk about business, the way to conduct business in the future, new opportunities, creating permanent change, following through, mindset and other good stuff.I describe him as a jacked Dr.Phil who's just a bit more sweary.  I love the bloke! Enjoy.www.craigharper.netwww.russelljarrett.com.auInstagram: whiteboardlessonsInstagram: russell_jarrett1

    01/06/2020 Duração: 53min

     Lachlan Wilmot has been a Strength and Conditioning Coach for over 15 years.He’s worked, networked and strategically forged a long and successful career in a space that is typically small, hugely competitive and not forgiving.As an S&C Coach, it’s very possible to do a terrific job with your athletes, have them in great condition, reach all of your KPI’s and still lose your job.That’s the nature of this industry, so it’s not for the faint hearted or for those that don’t want to do a few hard years in order to reach their goals.Lachie and I chat about his early career, and then in detail about his 10+ years at the elite level of S&C in Australia, (8 with GWS in the AFL and 2 with Paramatta Eels in the NRL)To work and thrive in this environment, you simply have to have your shit well and truly sorted.You have to be well qualified, have experience in the trenches, and then be able to communicate clearly and concisely with your athletes and coaching staff all the while have their backs, and earning their

    Brett Deledio - AFL Superstar.

    24/05/2020 Duração: 40min

    So, in this Episode I had a chat with recently retired AFL Champion player, Brett Deledio.It just so happens that Brett grew up and lived in the same small country town that I did.  He’s a local celebrity and famous sportsperson around these parts, but, strangely enough we’ve only ever met once.  Our paths have never really crossed, but as a coach thats worked in the sport for many years, I always watched him play with interest and certainly admired his physical strengths and abilities as a player.Brett played 275 games, the great majority of them outstanding (check his stats) and with a style and approach expected of the modern day AFL player.He was dominant throughout National Competitions as a junior player, and as a result, was drafted into the AFL as the No 1 pick in 2005.  He played for Richmond and GWS and spent 15 years in the intense pressure cooker environment of AFL football.  Along the way he was awarded the AFL Rising Star award, 2005, a two time best and fairest, and All Australian in 2015.In th

    Episode #23 – Ali G talks TRT.Ok gentlemen, listen up….ladies you can tune in too, but make your man listen in with you.Ali Gilbert certainly doesn’t fit the typical mould.  Ali Gilbert is a trainer and coach, and now a renowned expert and speaker in the relatively new specialist area of men’s health, particularly hormonal health and optimising hormone function.    Ali has found her unique place in the fitness wellness space, and it might surprise you somewhat.She’s highly educated and terrifically qualified, twice named in the Golf Digest Top 50 Fitness Professionals, this girl really knows her game.But after spending some time working in golf S&C, Ali discovered that many of her clients were all confiding in her about general men’s health issues, and this was coming from all of her clients, similar backgrounds and ages, similar concerns, and complaints.Ali has found her niche, dealing with males over the age of 35 who were experiencing the challenges and health battles associated with declining testoste

    Episode #22 - RJ Vs Covid - My personal and professional management of this global event

    29/04/2020 Duração: 48min

    I've broken the discussion up into three components. Personally, how have I managed thus far, how have I tried to keep sane during this insane time in our lives.  Professionally, what did I do when I had to close my business in half a day, with no control, no choice, no support.  And how do I intend to resurrect a business of 7 years that has effectively been destroyed.  Finally, I touch on how I believe that the world will be changed permanently going forward, we will be scarred by this, and I fear that many people will struggle mentally for a very long time.  Note, this is MY EXPERIENCE and MY OPINION, you may agree or disagree, that's ok, we are all having our own individual experience about this.  I hope you are safe, I hope you have found a way to continue in business and I hope you enjoy the episode.

    15/03/2020 Duração: 48min

    In this Episode I interviewed Richie Cranny, founder and president of the Mixed Martial Arts company and program known as Wimp2Warrior.As a life long student of all sorts of martial arts and combative sports, Richie created this unique fitness and competition concept when he immigrated to Australia from the UK in the early 2000’s.This certainly is something a little different.Initially created to provide people with an 20 week program for creating a new fitter, stronger and more confident version of themselves, W2W has now evolved into a world wide program that provides people with the opportunity to get involved and commit themselves to 20 weeks of rigorous self discovery, after which they actually compete in a full contact, combat cage fight with another person in which they seem well matched to.Yep, you’re hearing right, you may start out wanting to get a bit fitter and drop a few pounds, but at the end of 20 weeks, you find yourself in mortal combat with a complete stranger in a cage.My logical brain asks

    17/02/2020 Duração: 53min

    So after a little bit of internet stalking and some complicated time-zone conversions, I finally connected with Jay Ferrugia, a masterful coach with some 25+ years of experience in athlete preparation, personal training, online training and a writer of articles for widely read publications.Jay has a long and successful career in coaching, something which I have always said is critical when analysing a persons skills and success in their field.  Generally speaking, if they have survived in their chosen field for some time, then chances are they are knowledgeable, shrewd, skilled and driven to produce quality outcomes, day in, day out.Jay ticks all these boxes.We connected via Zoom, so apologies in advance for the less than perfect audio, however the conversion is completely audible, I just sound like I trapped in a jam tin.We spoke at length about the past, present and future of fitness, covered some of Jay’s philosophies in detail and came to a few conclusions and dropped a few nuggets of good for all your as
