Are you someone who hits the PANIC button when booking a holiday?
"Oh God, I've only got 2 months until I leave, I need to train 5 times a day and only eat dust for me to achieve a physique I feel happy with!"
Whether you're somone who jet sets frequently or only goes on holiday once in a blue moon, your training and nutrition shouldn't suddenly be altered. Small, sustainable and realistic changes over time will lead to longer lasting results which are maintainable and will free you up from the 'dust diet'... Trust me, I've tried it, it wasn't fun!
In this episode we discuss the build up to the holiday, the holiday itself and the holiday blues you may experience when settling into your daily routine when back home.

Awesome when it's there and hard work when it's not. Just like the famous Austin Powers we all have moments when we completely lose our mojo and training seems like more of a chore than anything else - the key thing to remember is that this isn't uncommon!
First we look at WHY? Why are you struggling to motivate yourself?
Kicking off with the basics (food, sleep, hydration) and then moving onto deeper and often overlooked aspects such as relationships, lifestyle, workplace and environment.
Once the WHY is addressed we move onto the HOW? How can you get yourself from feeling like 'fat bastard' (reference to the Austin Powers character, not just our potty mouths!) back into the swinging Austin you once were.
OOHH BEHAVE BABY YEEAAHHH!!

We've been blown away with so many questions since we started this podcast that this week, instead of talking about one topic, we decided to cover a range of different topics and questions that you guys had sent us through our instagram @the3dumbbells.
As we recorded this last Saturday afternoon we decided to crack open a few beers and take an extremely laid back approach which was good fun! We tried to answer as many questions as we could within the 30min time frame so apologies if we missed yours! We'll definitely be doing this again at some point so keep firing them in!

In this thrilling episode we talk all things body confidence and how we should play with the cards we've been dealt.
Your life shouldn't just evolve around how you look, it should be focused on how you feel, think and act too.
We are surrounded by images that imply "this is how you should look". Screw that! Be the best version of you and do what you want to make you happy!
During this episode we share our own experiences of getting as lean and aesthetic as possible and how it affected us, we also delve into the more pyschological aspects of self-consciousness and body image. As well as touching on associated eating and anxiety disorders in both men and women.

"You're the average of the five people you spend the most time with" - Jim Rohn
In this episode we talk about the benefits of having around like-minded people as well as the negatives of what doing the opposite can have on your potential.
We delve more into how us 3 Bells came together to create this podcast, pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, fear of failure and why it's always better to be an average player in the A team than the captain of the B team!

Can you have your cake and it eat too??
Birthdays, weddings, nights out - all fairly frequent in our social calendars right?
There seems to be a real stigma around the fitness industry about going out, having a few drinks and enjoying ourselves. What us 3 Bells have noticed is that with the people we train and hang around with regularly are actually pretty socialable too!
We shouldn't be made to feel guilty about these things but more find a healthy way to incorporate this into our lifestyle and find a right BALANCE!

Should boys and girls train the same??
High reps for toning, big weights make you bulky, cardio for fat loss - all things we regularly hear as PTs which make us die a little bit inside each time!
This topic can overlap into so many areas, so it was hard to squeeze it all in in 30mins, but areas we touched on are programming, social media influence and the intimidation factor!
