Ep 294 - Women’s Health & Fitness Myths Part 1

I’ve got a special double header in store for you here, as I’m joined by the team to dissect all the popular health and fitness myths women face on a day to day basis. Everything from the menstrual cycle, to pregnancy, to skinny fat syndrome, to effective training… and all the way to how stress impacts men and women differently. This is an episode for both men and women to tune into, dissect and take notes from, as many of the myths women are hit by, are closely linked to what men experience too. It’s a two part series, so get ready!
