Today on our Q&A episode we are breaking down a whole lot of subjects for your listening pleasure and health benefit. We are discussing the new documentary that everyone is talking about called The Game Changers, which aspects of your health to address first, sleep cooling systems, training volume, some upcoming events for Ben and taking a break from social media. Not too many surprises when it comes to Ben and Ashleigh’s perspectives on the vegan argument in The Game Changers and our hosts break down exactly why a more balanced diet is better for almost all people.

They also discuss why most diets that border on the extreme side are probably not great for general health and should probably only be used at certain times. Ben talks about how different our bodies are and the approaches that suit different people in balancing, maintaining and improving our wellness and strength. The last part of the episode is used to contemplate our usage of social media and the good that taking a break from overuse can provide. For all of this and a bunch more, tune in!
