    Great podcast, Matt. Sensible, realistic and thought-provoking, as always. Keep the ideas and musings coming!

    Hey Matt (and Rosie)

    It once again looks like the ‘solution’ of a combination of BOTH applies rather than just one- just as with the Nature vs Nurture ‘debate’. In my case specifically, I am always trying to balance cardio (running/jogging) with [more] strength based activities instead.

    Thus is seems it is up to the individual to determine their own balance of both. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. The fact that many/most people are not, suggests to me that either is not the eays solution. Cheers – Laurie

      Well said there Laurie! As you pointed out it is all about balance and finding the right mix. Something that involves skill and experiece. Qualities that are sorely lacking in our fitness culture.
