Today’s podcast covers several different topics:

1) Keats and Patrick talk about their new training/soft tissue therapy facility in Tempe, AZ.

2) Patrick gives us a review of the 2009 NSCA Conference

3) Keats and Patrick discuss hot topics like – running shoes and over-pronation, posture, low-carb diets, and dangerous exercises – and how individuals often will fall into the category of “kool-aid dirinkers” and fail to see the other side of the coin.

  1. […] I just posted our fifth podcast over at the Reality Based Fitness site. […]

  2. Is it really necessary to trash those with dissenting views as “kool-aid drinkers” to discuss the issue rationally? I would like to hear the flip side of why I don’t really need motion control shoes, but judging from your marketing blip on this podcast, I’m not sure I can count on you to show me the flip side of the coin fairly either.

    Pot – kettle – black?

    • Well, I don’t know about “trashing” anyone. We were merely bringing up topics where people often sway extremely far to one side or the other and put all their eggs in one basket. Perhaps you missed the part where we talked about the fact that we also hold our own biases and are prone to falling into this trap? It is a common problem for many in this industry (and other industries) and we were just trying to put it out there.

      As far as why you don’t need motion controlled shoes, I have no idea. I don’t know anything about you or how you run. Hopefully there is someone in your area that can assist you in getting into the proper shoe and not just group you into the category of “over-pronator” when you may not be.
