Description

Three guys discussing the wonderful world of fitness, including all of the nonsense that surrounds it! Much of the fitness industry seems to thrive on misinformation and false promises, likely due to how marketable this content seems to be. The aim of this podcast is to bring together three experienced individuals, all from different backgrounds, to help debunk some of this nonsense and point you in a better direction. From Bodybuilding, to Powerlifting, to Crossfit, and gym ownership, we're here to help you along your fitness journey and hopefully provide a few laughs in the process!

Episode Date
13 - Spilling The Tea. Digestion, Optimising vs Intensity and Another Questionable Test Booster.
4019

Gather round, bring some snacks, but do check if your stomach can handle it first.
The chaps convene to discuss some useful stuff, talking all things digestion and probiotics that may be of use to know. Including LIVE tasting, Harold not amused...
There's a valid conversation to be had about people who seek to optimise their training before nailing the right level of intensity to make sh*t happen, what is going on right now?
Finally, Harold takes to the soap box to talk about yet another funky new test booster on the market, what is it? Does it work? Do I need it? I need something...

All this plus the usual trash can of chaos bouncing back and forth like a whole lotta half reps.

Emotional support water bottles at the ready! The boys have hit their gym, tan and laundry and ready to cover serious subjects and killer Q and A.
Episode 10 is here finally, who knew it would get this far.
Subjects include the merits of qualifications for personal trainers, and what to look out for when selecting a trainer for yourself. Chris has a fancy new fitness tracker, but is it wise? Will it help? Maybe it's not all what it seems.
And finally, a very big topic and affecting everyone nationwide, nutritional data is now on your menu, but what does that mean for disordered eating? More trouble than it's worth? Surely the government wouldn't let us down...

The boys are back for our second instalment of the Pump Fiction podcast, just in time for Christmas! Today we're discussing how one could approach eating and training over the holiday period, including a Q&A taken from our Instagram stories.

Here it is, the first episode! In this episode, we introduce ourselves in addition to discussing a bit about our backgrounds in the wonderful world of fitness. A comparison between Bodybuilding and Powerlifting occurs which also highlights that many training disciplines seem to share a lot of underlying principles. The episode rounds off with a Q&A segment, with questions provided by the wonderful members of East Park Gym. 

P.s. We're not actually pilots.
